Leo 3. Walking down the street, a man passes his double. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Receptive
(Degree Angel: Hahasiah (he-HA-see-Yah) No Guilt, Universal Medicine)
TITLE: A WILLINGNESS TO GO EVERYWHERE AND ANYWHERE IN SEARCH OF THE SELF
You’re pulled in may directions. If you jump around from one thing to another too much you may be entertained for awhile, and will maybe elude temporarily what your deep inner self knows it has to do. You need to keep asking yourself, “why am I focusing on this?” You goal is to rein in your curiosity and continually come back to what is important.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A rickshaw.” Loving to run here, run there. It can be a means of connecting and synthesizing all into increasing patterns of harmony and progress – if you allow your intuition to guide you where to go next, or it can be just a lot of scrambling around in a desperate effort to avoid those things you really need to look at, and those places ou really need to go.
Pleiadian Symbol: A female priestess having her head shaved. The overcoming of outer and superficial forms of self-expression.
Azoth Symbol: A man teaching the practical application of spiritual principles. Abstractions used to produce concrete results as a means of channeling the energy of the higher self into physical reality.
Seed degree: Aries 29. A woman immersed in healing mud. (Omega Symbol). Deep union with the realm of physical reality we come into an acutely heightened self-awareness.
Dr. Jekyll drinks the potion. (Chandra Symbol). A willingness to experiment, to embark on adventures, and to encounter our shadow self frees up our energy to move and to connect us with a host of destinations.
Fulfillment degree: Gemini 11. Rain falling on the ocean (Omega Symbol). An acute awareness of ourselves in all our uniqueness and distinctivenss helps us to realize eventually how alike we are to each other, and all a part of the vast see of our consciousness.
A stag with golden horns (Chandra Symbol). Going so many places in search of so many things we find, among so much that is mundane, that which is cosmic, exalted, and sublime.
Walking down the street I saw myself ignoring myself. The other me glanced at me quickly and hurried away, fearing, probably, that I’d ask him some too personal question that would make him uncomfortable, or criticize his clothing, which would have been strange, since it was identical to my own.
I might stalk myself, and finding out where I live, wait until I might catch myself coming or going. I wish he wouldn’t fear me so – I only want to ask if he remembers me from the past.
The following degree frequency summaries are descriptions of the individual degrees of each sign IRRESPECTIVE OF WHICH SIGN THEY ARE IN. For instance, #8 below describes the 8th degree IN ALL TWELVE SIGNS. The meanings given for it are then synthesized with the sign in question. So, for instance, if one is interpreting 8 degrees Scorpio, one would read the meaning of #8 below, and then synthesize it with the meaning of Scorpio.
Degree frequencies are a relatively new idea in astrology. I’m sure other astrologers have worked with these, though I have not directly explored their work. The meanings for degree frequencies given here were received from Ellias Lonsdale, one of the greatest living astrologers. I feel the work is profound, brilliant, and uncovers many subtleties within the degrees.
Always remember when reading a degree that one rounds up, so that if one sees 19 degrees and 48 minutes of Capricorn in a chart, this is actually the 20th degree of Capricorn.
Kabbalistic ruler: the element air
Therapeutic ruler: Mercury
I want to empower myself and everybody else to get on with what we’re here for. I am being given a chance to innovate, to reinvent. to start all over., There’s nothing about me that’s hidden. There is in me a stroke of something wildly different and new.
I am clueless about so many things that everybody else is sure about, and I often feel like I’m nobody at all.
I have wildfire impulses that surge through me.
When I pay attention to what others are saying and doing, almost none of it applies to me. I must be from another planet!
the world often criticizes the simplicity and directness of the 1 frequency. The world is always asking it, “What do you have to back that up? What more is there?” So the 1 copes with the world by trying to be good, by trying not to be a problem, because the rest of the world doesn’t understand it.
The 1 frequency can be a dumb note in many people because they have to be so very vividly present in life to be a 1. It can come across as very diluted and lacking in fiber — become a sort of emptiness.
The challenge is to stay in the moment, and to experience every moment as an exciting new beginning.
Example: 1 Virgo: “Late at night someone comes home and slowly ascends the stairs.” A simple and direct return to a higher reality within the self. (Omega Series).
Kabbalistic ruler: Saturn
Therapeutic ruler: Virgo
I am cautious, because I want to see what I’m doing. I want a readout of situations. I don’t mean to be heavily skeptical and drenched with doubt, or incredibly gloomy, I just mean “what’s this?”
I often feel I don’t know how. In the present moment I often feel I don’t have within me what it takes to go forward. I need to experience and play out the old and go through the illusions I have created so as to understand them and see them for what they are. I need to work stuff out.
Once I get going, I can just break away from the obstructions, uncertainties and fears, but before that point, its hard work for me. I have a need to prepare for the future, to build up my confidence and energy to meet it
I want to get on with things but life can e fore me a series of minor disappointments, and that for me is traumatic, for I don’t want to be held back. I can tend to get involved in small stuff, details, and pettiness — preoccupied and absorbed in the little stuff.
I have a certain conditioned mindset that I fall back on, and a more open mind that I am staring to use more and more. I need to move back and forth between these two, and in any given situation discover which one works and in what ways.
Example: 1 Capricorn: “A mysterious colored window used to contact other worlds.” Finding a portal opening into new possibilities. (Pleiadian series).
Kabbalistic ruler: Jupiter
Therapeutic ruler: Libra
There is no resolution with me. I have the strongest shadow essence of any degree frequency, and my spirit longing, aspiration and vision are at peak passion and power.
I must be open-ended in all things to find my way. The courage to enter the darkness of the 3 and to stay with it and to explore it to the dregs is absolutely crucial. 3’s are capable of ego aggrandizement. At best the 3 can be extremely calm, very timeless and very all-embracing.
There is, though, with the three the tendency toward rigidity of extremes, but going to extremes can be good for them because it’s a learning experience.
The 3 can take every polarity and exhaustively celebrate its ways, not for the purpose of endlessly doing this, but so that it leads to some place where it all comes together, gets synthesized.
Example: 3 Scorpio: “Pigs being fed.” Eager indulgence. The need for primitive satisfaction.
Kabbalistic ruler: Mars
Therapeutic ruler: Scorpio
I’ve got everything the world is looking for. My quest is to find where to put it. It’s so satisfying to find the right place for my energies, but if I put them where I know they won’t go, the result is maddening and frustrating.
There can be a merging of my treasures with a perfect context. I feel the completeness and wholeness of this, and once I take this for granted and feel I have it made, it erodes and soon the whole thing is undone.
I’m somebody who has to be used. I don’t need to beat myself up with ups and down, ins and outs. I just need to let go of my compulsions and realize that everything is cyclic.
I can’t find out what goes wrong, and I don’t need to, because that just keeps me embroiled in the wheel of karma. I may try to fight what goes wrong for a long time. It’s because I think I must be able to find some way to get it right.
I need to master my reactivity. I need to not reject myself when I’m the loser.
Example: 4 Cancer: “A dragon conferring its powers on a maiden.” (Pleiadian series). Finding the power inherent in innocence.
Kabbalistic ruler: Aries
Therapeutic ruler: Jupiter
My entire existence is focused on penetrating to deeper layers.
There’s always this voice that says “Why are you so intent on this? It’s not going to get you anywhere.” Sometimes the doubter in me stops me cold. The only thing I now to do is to keep going deeper until I’ve used up the last fragments of my”no.”
The 5 is a struggle between the yes and the no. The “no” doesn’t want me to go deeper. The “yes” says I have to. The “no” tells me I’ll never get anywhere, but over time I come to see that I’m not trying to get anywhere — I’m trying to get my inner bearings. the yes will always win out eventually.
Example: 5 Libra: “A Flagpole with no flag.” (Omega series). Rejection of allegiances so as to find the true core self.
Kabbalistic ruler: Taurus
Therapeutic ruler: Venus
I am somehow living in more than one world, and what I bring to any situation is just one sparkling jewel, one ray, the part that fits. I cannot get myself to narrow down my scope to make things simple and easy.
I can be scattered, fragmented, lost in the parade of what wants to find its voice in me. I must be one of the first to show and reveal what it is going to be like around here when we move out of the rigid self we thought we were.
I don’t try to fit it all together. I am not interested in any kind of consistency or pattern. What I’m about is this moment’s possibilities. And what I’m supposed to do is to keep us all moving. Something about me gets people going.
The 6 comes to the point where it realizes you can’t work it out — it will work itself out.
Example: 6 Aquarius: “Beings of high evolution doing what they can to help humanity.” (Azoth series). Accessing the assistance of higher forces.
Kabbalistic ruler: Gemini
Therapeutic ruler: Sagittarius
I need to only listen to myself and to stay on my subtle inner track and to not try to explain. I know that nothing endures, and all things are utterly meaningful, relevant and real. I can be more of a self-critic than any other degree frequency, because I see such immense potential in myself that I yearn to access.
At the core of my being I know infinite possibilities. I know that it is totally possible to saturate this physical world with spiritual light, and that is what I want so desperately. I am a consummate idealist.
I am capable of tremendous brotherhood/sisterhood impulses because I have a deep knowing of what it’s like for everybody.
Example: “A pattern used to generate energy.” (Azoth series). The search for systems that create empowerment.
Kabbalistic ruler: Cancer
Therapeutic ruler: Capricorn
I turn every part of me into what is useful, what serves, what fits the picture. The world needs me to be a strong individual. I am an obedient servant carrying out a greater will and everything about me is designed to fulfill that task.
Nothing is alien to me. Nothing is beneath me. I am everybody’s friend. I am the world’s companion. If I can be a core awareness reflection for any and all to find their way, that is the best I can possibly do in my life. I cannot lose, and I cannot win. I will go a country mile to seem to be accessible, to seem to be obvious, to seem to be literal. I will play a part, I will play a role, and I will play it all the way.
The world loves me because I do it, I show it, I make it happen. I put myself there, I bring everybody with me, I live it up, I play it out.
An 8 could take an eighth of their being and have 7/8ths of themselves hidden, and the 7/8ths would be living in these incredible other realities, while the one that is showing up here would be conceived by most everybody as being such a character that one would never be aware of or look for the other 7 parts.
Example: 8 Virgo: “A man thinking up names for colors.” (Chandra series). The attempt to communicate bea, wonder, and the ineffable. “People dragging a beached whale back into the ocean.” (Omega series). The attempt to foster and assist the harmony of nature.
Kabbalilstic ruler: Leo
Therapeutic ruler: Aquarius
I have an ongoing consciousness of what pulls us forward and what pulls us back — what supports our evolution and what retards it — the workings of the light and the darkness. I have to learn where we are really going and what it’s going to take to get there. I need to commit to life tasks and foster a collaborative spirit. If I move with what is there, then everything will take care of itself. My intention is all-important.
Mu goal is to see through my own distortions and to cleave to the truth that stands behind everything I perceive. I need to always be clarifying the difference between my truth and what is my projection. I naturally realize that everything is connected.
Example: 9 Pisces: “Dusk. A vampire awakens.” Activation of the dark side of one’s nature so that it may ultimately be redeemed.
Kabbalistic ruler: Virgo
Therapeutic ruler: Uranus
I’m super tuned into what is happening in the world and what is asked of us. I want to serve and to make everything possible. I’m very capable of keeping the world going on whatever terms seem necessary and vital. I’m a very mental degree. I take what I am discovering in myself and then disseminate what I discover. I speak the truth and put out there what I mean to say.
What often happens to 10’s is that they give into situations and contexts that make their giving useless, or which merely perpetuate the status quo without evolving it. They keep trying to protect their individuality but often end up grooved into the habits and patterns and thought currents of this world. Dismantling the world illusion is their job.
Example: 10 Taurus: “Deep in the jungle a panoply of colorful birds and flowers.” The protection and concealment of hidden treasures deep within the self.
Kabbalistic ruler: Sun
Therapeutic ruler: Neptune
I know how to cut through all the crap and not to be stopped by attitudes and arbitrary place inside.
I am a love, a catalyst, someone who does people good, who brings it all back around. I am here to make a difference. I am an instigator. I make things happen. I carry the ball and run with it. I am meant to be a tremendously forward pressing energy.
I have instant photo recognition of opportunity, challenge, possibility, and opening. I am the fastest frequency.
I am intent on shifting patterns, making something happen that wouldn’t happen otherwise.
I always have something at stake, something dramatic going on and I’m in the very middle of it. I’m trying to get the opposites connected.
I have the tendency to be hyper-adaptive in crazy making situations.
I generate impact when I don’t do anything whether I know it or not, because I’m constantly emitting a kind of spark. All I need to do is to be calm and quiet and accepting and embracing. I don’t need to force the issue. In fact, forcing issues can be my great mistake.
It’s very easy for me to get into addictive patterns. i am afraid of a vacuum. I’m afraid of coming down. I’m afraid of being flattened. I’m afraid of things getting less intense, less powerful, less amazing.
The 11 is tapping the wisdom that is at the edge of the physical plane in the realm known as the subtle physical, which is the aspect of the physical that’s not gross and tangible and massive but is more like a kind of a vibe that is in the physical but isn’t in the gross physical.
When I am really on, I do just a gesture in the right direction and everything magically happens. I have the ability to have an incredible light easy natural touch.
I have the ability to enhance the life spark, the quality of drawing forth the best in things.
Example: 11 Capricorn: “A man using colored lights to read a palimpsest.” (Azoth series). The ability to read the faint and subtle messages that are all around one.
Kabbalistic ruler: Libra
Therapeutic ruler: Pisces
There is a tendency for the most desperate, the most despairing, the most anguish ridden an angst oriented states to come from the 12th degree frequency.
If I can just surrender my fears and have faith I can experience a great turnaround in my life. Letting to can completely change my world.
I exemplify the truth that what you resist you become. Whatever I try to get away from is what I’ll be faced with.
My great challenge is to learn to never say never.
Example: 12 Scorpio: “A collection of rocks shaped like hearts.” The attempt to understand one’s blockages when it comes to loving, giving, and receiving.
Kabbalistic ruler: the element water
Therapeutic ruler: Aries
I have a rampant exuberance that is often camouflaged and contained, hidden, or held back. I may have infinite capacity that I don’t tap, or don’t tap fully or openly.
With me there is nothing anywhere except personal soul discovering, exploring, unfolding, developing, working, and moving with. I always have to learn the most basic things. I always already now the most advanced things. I essentially live by my wits. Everybody consistently overestimates me.
Some part of me won’t let me enter upon and enjoy the fabulous gifts I am heir to. That part says I don’t deserve it and that part seems to dominate a whole corner of my soul. It takes a long time for the gifts and the magic to overflow.
Everyone has their eyes on me even when I’m not doing or saying anything. Other people feel inspired, enhanced, quickened, and challenged by me. I am at my best when I’m very expressive, engaged and committed to progress.
Example: 13 Leo: “An old man on a porch which looks out over a stormy sea.” (Pleiadian series). The wise self calmly contemplating the deep turbulence and power of its emotions.
Kabbalistic ruler: Scorpio
Therapeutic ruler: Taurus
I am intent on maximizing my strength, which is stamina and incredible perseverance. I have a willingness to clear myself of any and all falsehood and restriction. I am overwhelmingly consecrated and given over to the objective task. I’ll do what needs doing. I am dedicated to the task of finding out what’s wrong and slowly and inevitably changing it.
It’s easy for me to feel discouraged, disempowered and disillusioned because I perceive the magnitude of my task.
Cleaning people’s houses is a perfect 14 task. I create channels through which things can happen, and often I don’t even know I’m doing that. I have the ability to patiently create the right key for the right lock.
14 is the battleground between “I can’t do it,” and “Of course I will anyway.”
Example: 14 Cancer: “A dried up stream bed covered with smooth rocks.” (Chandra series). A softening over time of one’s perception of and attitude toward problems to the point that we are able to take a gentle, smooth approach to them. Coexistence with the world’s difficulties without harshness or agitation.
Kabbalistic ruler: Sagittarius
Therapeutic ruler: Saturn
I am the world’s worst at perpetuating old models. When I am inspired, I am totally alive. I am very wholistic and all-encompassing.
It is necessary for me to have a light, broad, open style. In my true mode I listen, tune in to, and open myself to any and all directions as the impulse and the message arises.
I am able to open all my subtle senses and be finely tuned and exceedingly alive to the complex weave that arises when fairy and cosmic beings, the dead, and every variety of unknown intelligence are here with us. I was specifically made for a different world. When I am on my way to that new world, I feel alive, engaged, free and joyous. The 15 frequency vibrates with Chiron.
Example: 15 Gemini: “Drummers creating complex overlays of rhythms.” (Azoth series). The dynamic blending of energies to enhance beauty and bring greater interest to life.
Kabbalistic ruler: Capricorn
Therapeutic ruler: Mars
I need to boost the spirits of all I meet. I am pouring a healing balm into everyone, with something restorative in it. I am lively and easy to be with. I am subject to and almost at the mercy of moods, moon tides, follies and notions which pass but which can take a bite out of me. Life feels like an emergency to me. There is nothing I can depend on, no stability, just the meeting of what is in the moment and attempting to harmonize it with my deep inner self. I am always up against the need to crack through a shell, a structure that feels so thick and customary that it takes everything I’ve got not to feel intimidated, not to be coerced. I feel on the defensive.
I need to learn to give my all to the situation at hand. I need to put myself on the line. I need to discover a deep enough place in myself that can commit itself forcefully enough and totally enough to a new way of life.
Example: 16: 16 Sagittarius: “A magician’s wand sprouting golden leaves.” (Omega series). Continual receptivity to new and empowering opportunities. The spontaneous re-energizing of inspiration.
Kabbalistic ruler: Venus
Therapeutic ruler: Gemini
There is not one anything in the 17 world. The 17 is seeking to annihilate what is false in it.l It knows it’s i a false world and a false self, and can’t bear it — and won’t bear it. It needs to undermine and sabotage its own disguises, its own agenda, its own trip.
It is dead set on something it doesn’t know how to reach. It will get there but it has no idea how or when or what its going to take, but it will. It has a good built-in instinct for how to not go crazy. It just knows that you can’t take anything too seriously or too much to heart because if you do, you will collapse into a heap. It knows that it must be ironic.
I do not have any idea what is going on with me in a certain sense. I have no patterns, no reference points for most of the stuff I find myself dealing with. I have got to make something out of what I meet in this world, and it really get to me.
I have got to get my insides to somehow come outside and be part of things, and it’s such a struggle. I get accustomed to hiding out. The 17 is always coming out of a place where it knows all about things and then discovers it knows nothing.
Example: 17 Virgo: “An old bald woman talking to her dog.” (Chandra series). The need to give up rational thinking and to dialogue with one’s instincts.
Kabbalistic ruler: Aquarius
Therapeutic ruler: Cancer
There is no neutral space in the 18, for in its thoroughness it must go to all the extreme places within itself. The 18 is ultimately about witnessing what it’s like to fall, and what it’s like to rise. It chooses ultimately to rise, but honors ever stage of the process. It can be very temptable and susceptible. It is the most vulnerable of souls, and needs to be, for by opening itself up to all it is eventually able to take in the completeness of life.
18’s sometimes have a dreaded fascination with the dark side because they know there’s something to learn from it. When they get on their spiritual path, though, they are shining representatives of the bright spirit.
They can manifest a tremendous ability for empathy and nurturing.
Example: 18 Aries: ” Deep in the forest Titania’s ancient stone throne covered with moss.” (Pleiadian series). Profound connection with both the power and gentleness of nature.
Kabbalistic ruler: Pisces
Therapeutic ruler: Leo
I am challenged, I am provoked, I am compelled to push my limits, to find where I really am. I make sure to keep the pressure on. I make sure to make it tense and dangerous in how it will turn out. I can push myself way too far.
I don’t know how to be simply here with what is happening and just let it flow.
this wild part of me always wants to jump off that cliff to see what happens — but when I’m not doing that the world is for me purely an excuse to be sleep, to be gone, to be somebody else. I can’t seem to keep myself awake in the midst of life unless I resort to my youthful impetuosity.
I can be the perpetual adolescent. I can follow the adventure all the way and I do. I am essentially unable to keep myself away from pushing too hard and feeling where it takes me.
I run on impulse, improvisation. I am an outlaw, a renegade, a follower of myself. I am so incorrigible that each time I do curb myself, it barely holds for awhile.
I have a shadow self that doubts and fears the outcome of my audacity and spirit of adventure, and who draws to me people and situations to thwart me, block me, and stop me. As I eventually mature (which might not be until my 50’s or 60’s) I develop maybe just a little bit of tameness and ability to observe myself. This helps me greatly to overcome my impulsiveness and be far more fulfilled. The reason it take me so long to get to the point is because all this adventure and excitement feels so vital I don’t want to give up even a little bit of it.
If, on the other hand I give in to the world and give up my maverick ways I can end up living in grief. Not a passive grief, but a burning grief and longing. This grief of mine is unused life force, untapped talent and genius.
The 19 is totally magical. There is something in it that understands that everything is rigged in our favor, if we’re willing to learn from it. If you’re innocent enough, you can just put yourself at the center of the 19 frequency, radiate conviction and all will form around you.
Example: 19 Pisces: “Palm trees laden with dates.” (Chandra series). Bearing rich food for everyone, especially in situations of scarcity and lack. Heavy with gifts and wanting others to partake of them.
Kabbalistic ruler: Mercury
Therapeutic ruler: Moon
My destiny won’t let me join any of the multitudes of worlds I could join, because I am a connector, I stand at the crossroads. I am the wider link and I can’t swallow myself up in life’s particulars in any way. My own priority is to be the scribe, be the witness, the onlooker, be the one who lets all the others know that this is happening here, and that it matters.
I am being asked to sweat it out. I have to work with my personal subjective self and all its opacities, illusions, densities and incredible stubbornness.
The main thing happening in this frequency is that it is being pursued by the Absolute. It breathes right down your neck and you can’t create any distance from it. It smiles on you in the shadows. It enjoys your falls and says, “here, here’s a hand. Come. I’ll pick up up.” The 20 has a tendency to look at things from a state of almost bliss. They don’t spend their whole time there or anything, but it’s amazing when they get it. There can be a huge kind of fanaticism in the 20, a self-righteousness — where one tries everything in one’s power to make the world wrong and oneself right.
The 20 is seeking to be a graceful and skill reflector of an infinite reality.
Example: 20 Gemini: “A bull stung by a scorpion.” (Chandra series). Finding methods (which are sometimes drastic) to transform overly rigid or stagnating situations and ideas.
Kabbalistic ruler: the element fire
Therapeutic ruler: Sun
I reproduce with avid familiarity what I have seen others do. By doing so I live vicariously, second hand. I cannot resist the common tone, the generic style. I can be influenced by every current around me.
The further I go in trying on for size the ready prototypes that are so easy to portray, the more alienated I become from this one pure dynamic that means everything to me: it’s that I yearn to be the one who makes those around me come alive. To do this I need to go on my own inspiration and find my own way rather than trying to adopt the standard methods or the formulas of others.
When you are fully clear in the 21 you know that you are a herald, that you are a forerunner, that you’re a beacon light bearer, that you’re one of those characters who goes on ahead and helps everybody get where they need to go. You’re a pace setter, a tone setter. And your way of doing that is to listen to the voice within and to follow it so closely that you become the voice within.
Example: 21 Gemini: “Magically the trolls make the stones weightless as they build the castle.” (Pleiadian series). The facilitating of tasks by finding often startling and innovative ways to make them easier
Kabbalistic ruler: Moon
Therapeutic ruler: Pluto
You have to connect things up, bring things together that might not go together if you don’t bring them together. You can never cease working the beat, the territory of finding ways for this and that and that and this to combine forces — to become one.
You have to be the one who essentially overcomes and transmutes your own stuff. Sooner or later you almost always find yourself forging a path that is the opposite to the one that makes sense inside you, and that’s the wake up call. The fact of the matter is that you’re very close to where you need to be but you just haven’t made the leap yet.
22 can be skilled in the art of evasion, but what they evade within themselves will always show up one way or another i their outer reality.
Sometimes the 22 gives up the search for truth because it seems like there’s such a remote chance of finding it. They may feel that they can’t depend on anything, even themselves. Their mission is to eventually see through all the illusions being perpetrated both inside and outside themselves to find truth.
Example: 22 Cancer: “A dead poet’s poems finally published.” (Azoth series) Recognition of the extent and wholeness of effort no matter how long it takes.
Kabbalistic ruler: Aries manifesting in a Jupiterian way
Therapeutic ruler: Jupiter manifesting in a Libran way
The 23 has the gift of reaching out, of opening doors. It is the infinite aliveness which follows from a dead era of history. I get what’s going on before others do, and my part is to go on ahead and to show by as many different signs that we can, and we will. I am that smile, that yes, that “of course” which can’t be denied.
The difficulty with the 23 is that it’s hard to ground it. With the 23 it’s fairly easy to over adapt to the struggle of the times and to underplay the element of vision prophecy and the greater awakening.
The 23 is always aspiring, seeking, questing. Its message is “go further, take it beyond, don’t stop here, don’t settle for this.”
At worst the 23 is swept up in controversy and destructive obsessing on polarities. At best it is someone who is conceiving and moving with a whole new world.
Example: 23 Leo: “A secret race of beings carrying on a hidden existence among humans.” (Omega series). The ability to infiltrate the lives of others in subtle, unsuspected ways for the purpose of generating a positive influence. Though possibly there may be difficulty in making one’s presence and ideas felt. One’s messages may be given and received subliminally.
Kabbalistic ruler: Taurus manifesting in a Jupiterian way
Therapeutic ruler: Venus manifesting in a Libran way
This is easily the most complex degree frequency, except for the 12. The 24 frequency is not interested in the outer world. It is the least interested in ordinary reality. It is interested in the deep-inside world, entering it, becoming it, going where it takes them. You have to give yourself over to your destiny.l It can be the most painful, destructive and difficult of the frequencies. It is the opposite of easy and flowing. Your journey takes you on countless turns and twists.
The 24 frequency is at war constantly and the war rages within. I have to go back to wherever I’m stuck or impeded and get rid of what is stopping me. I sometimes feel that I can’t make sense out of my life. I can’t be a regular person. I end up outlasting evil ways and karmic patterns. I’m the bearer of what’s missing.
Bob Dylan’s Mercury is here. So is Robert De Niro’s Sun in Leo. The 24 is a troublemaker. Whatever is obvious isn’t something of interest to it. It can help others to have the guts and vision to carrying things through. You’ve been sent on a great mission. So much depends on your taking it all the way. The 24 is Frodo — the quest. You have to go to all places you’s least want to go.
Your one indispensable ingredient: ruthless, relentless energy.
Example: 24 Scorpio: “Gold turning back into lead.” Anything that was once seen as important comes eventually to be seen as limiting — which can lead to a greater embracing of the truly cosmic.
Kabbalistic ruler: Gemini manifesting in a Jupiterian way
Therapeutic ruler: Sagittarius manifesting in a Libran way.
I have a deep subjective feeling of being linked with a very sublime, refined and glorious realm. The 25 is the most heaven-oriented, the most interested in staying aloft of all the degree frequencies. I am seeing a lost way through, restoring a recognition of what is eternal and worth giving myself to.
There’s always a feeling in the 25 that we’re just beginning, just entering upon things and that there’s this way in which you just have to be in them and through them and of them and that they’re all there around you and you’re just partaking in them in this very magnificent way.
I am otherworldly, inner worldly, not common or ordinary. The main difficulty that arises with the 25 is that if you’re not in tune with totality, if there’s a way in which you’re stuck on external points of view, that the 25 will elevate you but you’ll kind of stay out there, unable to bring that high energy into the world.
Example: 25 Aquarius: “At a spinning wheel dreams and visions are being spun into realities.” A movement from the generalities of idealism toward those dreams manifesting in physical actuality.
Kabbalistic ruler: Cancer manifesting in a Jupiter way
Therapeutic ruler: Capricorn manifesting in a Libran way.
There is no frequency that’s quite as affirmative as celebrational, as full of adventure as the 26 really is. With the 26 you have to have cosmic forces over for tea and for dinner and for a snack. And otherwise, if you don’t cosmic forces will tend to try to break down your barriers or will tend to trick you. The 26 is very fast, it is in fact the fastest of all frequencies. Lightning fast, not developmental. Everything is experienced by it as being in the here and now. the 26 needs projects, enterprises, ways of life, immense endeavors. It must be stretched, taken where it hasn’t been before. It is always ready for adventure.
Nothing appeals to me more than to provoke fresh stages of awareness and activation in those that come my way.
This existence intersects with many vaster worlds and there are nodal points where that great existence streams through into this world. The 26 frequency is tapping in to those points of intersection and through doing so bringing in energy from other realms.
The 26 is an incredible liberating breath that opens the space to totality so that things that have been held too closely in a particular pattern can loosen up and be freed.
Example: 26: 26 Cancer: Sounds of laughter coming from many different directions in the forest.” Realization of the joy that permeates the natural world.
Kabbalistic ruler: Leo manifesting in a Jupiterian way
Therapeutic ruler: Aquarius manifesting in a Libran way.
I know I must be myself in all situations, and that to do so I must rid my being of false identities and superficial masks. I am acutely aware of my true self, and of the conflict between it and all lesser manifestations of myself.
I also know that to find and live my true self I must help others to do the same, and realize the integrity of the true selves of others. Therefore I try to be open minded and non judgmental in all situations. At my best I continually bring out the best in others.
Even when I’m unsure of who I am I would rather be in darkness and confusion than cling to an inadequate and falsely limiting self-conception.
Example: 27 Virgo: “A cup made from a skull. It is filled with dark wine.” Savoring the essence of the past, with all its joys, hopes and sorrows. A poetic awareness which clears and nourishes the mind.
Kabbalistic ruler: Virgo manifesting in a Jupiterian way
Therapeutic ruler: Uranus manifesting in a Libran way
I can’t get around things, can’t make it easier, or do shortcuts. I have absolutely got to be thorough.
I can get caught in dogma, and the letter of the law, in many forms of self-righteousness. I do this because I think I see the whole picture when actually there are pieces I still haven’t found.
I need to constantly realign myself with my purpose. I need to deal with all sorts of limitations. I have to do everything I can to come back into sacred attunement. I have to overcome all dissipating elements. I need to become a concentrated ball of intent and consecrated will.
No matter how hard it is, I know I must foster perfection.
Example: 27 Taurus: “A greenhouse full of tropical planets set in a snowy landscape.” (Omega series). The power to see how to protect oneself in such a complete and wholistic manner that one may eventually become impervious to harsh and non-supportive outer realities.
Kabbalistic ruler: Sun manifesting in a Saturnian way
Therapeutic ruler: Neptune manifesting in a Virgoan way.
I don’t belong to this world. I’m transcendent, infinite, sacred, magical, devoid of characteristics. Metamorphosis is me. Nothing to me is terribly tragic or irrevocable. I’m not invested in anything because I float freely. I have no ambition, goals, plans, programs, because everything already is. I am completely ineffable, beyond comprehension. The irrational to me is wonderfully expansive.
I like to go to extremes as a means of creative experimentation. I simultaneously break down things and reconstitute them in unique, original, and startling patterns.
Example: 29 Gemini: “At dawn the calls of birds mingle with dreams.” (Pleiadian series). The ability to synthesize messages coming from both inside and outside the self in an intuitive and creative manner. An instinctual communing with the voices of nature and the ability to be creatively inspired by them.
Kabbalistic ruler: Jupiter manifesting in a Martian way
Therapeutic ruler: Libra manifesting in a Scorpionic way
I continually change, am without disturbance, without hurry or agitation. I become all things as needed and can be all that and also utterly removed from that. I manifest paradox, ambiguity, contradiction, liberation from patterns, sequence, meaning and value. Everything in me is simultaneous. I have lots of compassion, but nothing clings to me.
At my worst I spin my wheels and get nowhere,and am busy with a multitude of things without arriving anywhere. Wallowing in endless complexities of confusion.
Example: 30 Sagittarius: “By time traveling a man takes a photograph of dinosaurs.” The ability to perceive the deepest and most primitive reaches of the past, and hence to comprehend the most primal foundations of the self.
The Astrological Correspondences of the Colors of Aura-Soma
Aries – Red
Rudolph Steiner said that red is a color that wants to be everywhere at once. We see this in biology reflected in the blood which saturates the body and flows to every place it can. Aries answer to everything is action, and action means movement, movement everywhere. Aries and red signify pure stimulation.
Red is the only color in the Aura-Soma system that is expressed in two different degrees of paleness – Pink and Pale Pink. Red stimulates circulation of blood and lymph. Where there is adequate circulation there can be no infection, so red is a wonderful color to use when infection is present. Pink stimulates the circulation of light, and where light circulates there can be no negativity.
Taurus – Coral (red-orange)
Vicky Wall said that coral was the color of unrequited love. Taurus rules possession – it has to do with what we have. Spiritually, what we want most is love. Love is the most precious energy we can give and receive. The Kabbalah teaches us that we are never victims, and that we create every aspect of our reality. So when a person gives love and finds that is it unrequited, meaning not returned we must ask ourselves why the person created that. It may be because 1) the individual is afraid of love, and so has chosen someone who they subconsciously know won’t return it, or 2) because they feel they don’t deserve it, and so look for it in places they are sure not to find it.
Taurus is the most eccentric of the signs. It’s the one with the greatest uniqueness of character. In Aura-soma literature it’s pointed out that the little animals of which coral consists sacrifice their individuality for the good of the community. The question is, do humans have to do this, and to what extent? If we live in an overly conservative and rigid society, we are expected to give up anything about us that is different so that we can be like anyone else. But does this help the society? No, or course not, it just perpetuates its stagnation and limitation. If we look at those people who have given the most to society in terms of furthering its progress we see that the overwhelming majority of them we “odd” in some way, unique, different, had something strikingly distinctive to give which enriched the world.
Gemini – Orange
Through my own personal experience as a massage therapist I have come to a much clearer understanding of the relationship between the color orange and the healing of the time line spoken of in Aura-soma literature. First of all, why do shocks even happen? The spiritual answer is that shocks wake us up. Shocks release karma. But the negative side of shocks is that we can have trouble assimilated which results in use getting stuck at the point of the shock.
When a muscle is shocked, for instance through being overworked, metabolic debris can fail to be adequately removed by the body and chronic pain can result that can last for years. This is seen constantly in such phenomenon as car wrecks, where the aftermath of pain can go on indefinitely.
This sort of thing not only happens to the physical body but to the others bodies as well, emotional, mental and spritual. The color orange can remove these blockages caused by shock. It can provide us with the deep insight needed to clear these blockages. Orange is the color of excitement in that through the stimulation excitement provides blockages can be broken up and cleared.
Gemini is the sign of communication, and we find that when a shock or trauma has occurred and not been adequately dealt with, communication is always lessened or interrupted. A person, for instance, who was sexually molested as a child has suffered a shock which has disrupted their inner circuitry to the point that they lose a part of their spiritual, emotional, mental, and sometimes even physical functioning.
It’s important to remember that shocks are not always big. We suffer many tiny shocks during a lifetime. We may be sailing along smoothly and suddenly someone makes a remark which triggers something in us and throws us off. Modern life is certainly filled with a myriad of shocks coming at us all the time, but little and big. The more we can heal from the effects of these shocks the more we can come into the joy that is the highest significance of the color orange.
Cancer – Gold (yellow-orange)
Gold signifies wealth on all levels, and Cancer’s strongest urge is for security. When we realize the wealth we do possess, not just materially but emotionally, mentally and spiritually as well, we realize we are completely secure.
Gold is also the color of wisdom, and Cancer is the sign best suited for both teaching and learning, for Cancer innately realizes that wisdom is the ultimate source of security.
It seemed strange to me at first that the color gold, named for the metal which is ruled by the sun, should be ascribed to the sign ruled by the moon, for the moon and the sun and polar opposite energies. As I’ve tuned into the color gold being ruled by Cancer, I’ve envisioned a large full moon of a rich golden color. Remember that Cancer is the sign which initiated the season of summer, and that gold is a warm color.
In Aura-soma literature gold is also associated with deception, delusion, and self-righteousness. In their quest for security Cancer can sometimes deceive themselves into thinking that something outward is their ultimate source of security and fail to realize that all true security comes from within. The true quest is to find inner wealth, rather than outer wealth. Cancer can also be defensive at times, and manifest this as a self-righteousness which they use to separate themselves from others due to fear.
Leo – Yellow
The warmth, laughter, joy and delight of yellow exemplify the happy and fulfilled Leo. Leo’s greatest problem is their ego, which can cause confusion and lack of trust. What Leo wants most is self-assurance which can only be obtained with the self is willing to let go of its limitations and be truly concerned with the welfare of others.
Yellow also signifies acquired knowledge. Most of us have acquired far more knowledge than we are aware of, through our past life experiences. If we can let go of our ego and the limitations which it imposes, we can have access to all of that knowledge.
Since yellow is the lightest color it is the one nearest to expressing the full spectrum of light. When Leo thinks that it is the light is when all of its problems arise. Rather than allowing the ego to close out the light, Leo must open to the light so that it can become a complete manifestation of it.
The pale yellow of B 51, the Kuthumi bottle, is the intellect purified of all false ideas and concepts. Once the density of these wrong thoughts is removed, we can open to the realm of Angels and Devas.
Virgo – Olive (yellow-green)
The bitterness associated with the color olive has to do with Virgo’s negatively critical aspect, for when we judge ourselves or our life to be lacking, defective or flawed, or are always finding something wrong with whatever we turn our attention to, the result can be bitterness.
Hope is also associated with olive, for Virgo’s ability to improve anything, to be able to see a problem and find a way to fix it, always gives hope. Hope is the perfect antidote to bitterness.
Olive can also mean clarity on the path, which is what Virgo’s analytical ability can always
provide us with, when used positively.
The feminine leadership of Virgo means offering criticism that is ultimately supportive, criticism that points to flaws that can be changed, criticism that encourages rather than merely supports the ego of the criticizer. It also signifies supporting someone where they are at, supporting their uniqueness and encouraging them to follow their own path, rather than attempting to compel them to be like oneself.
As the herb olive leaf is used to fight infection, the color olive can also be used for the same thing. Red will provide the energy to fight the infection, and olive will help the system to realize it is there – as Virgo is so aware of what is wrong!
In the Bach Flower Remedy system, Olive flower essence is used to help the person get deep rest and to replenish reserves of energy. The color olive can be used for the same thing.
Libra – Green
Green is the color of space. It gives us greater space in which to be and to do. This is not just space in the usual sense, but time as well, as space and time are inseparable. Having the time as well as the space is exactly what we need to relate, which is what Libra is all about. Green is a soothing and smoothing color, and Libra is the peacemaker of the zodiac.
Libra is also the sign concerned with balance and the heart chakra, whose color is green, stands between the three lower and three upper chakras. Here we see a balance between the physical and spiritual.
The spaciousness of green stands in complementary balance to red, for love (pink, which is light red) is all about giving, and space and time is what we give to whatever we love.
Scorpio – Turquoise (blue-green)
In “Aura-Soma Healing through Color and Crystal Energy” turquoise is said to be the color of the Age of Aquarius. If turquoise is the color ascribed to Scorpio, why is it associated with Aquarius? Probably because Scorpio is the 10th sign from Aquarius and so rules the 10th house of an equal house chart with Aquarius rising. This signifies that Scorpio is the vibrational “10th house” of Aquarius. The 10th house, which is the highest one in the sky, signifies the highest energy to which a sign can attain, and so Scorpio represents the loftiest spiritual elevation of Aquarius.
Vicky Wall saw turquoise as signifying communication through all kinds of creative expression, and the astrologer Marc Jones gave “creativity” as the most important keyword for Scorpio. Turquoise stands for transdimensionality, meaning existence and presence beyond time and space. Scorpio rules death and rebirth, which are ways of transcending time and space.
Scorpio is about power and its use. Power can be wielded to dominate and even enslave others, but it can also be used to liberate and uplift others. Traditionally Scorpio has always been associated with both a snake and an eagle, the snake signifying the lower and selfish energies of Scorpio, and the eagle representing Scorpio’s potentially high-minded and lofty manifestation.
Sagittarius – Blue
Sagittarius is a fire sign and in a candle blue is the color nearest to the wick. Blue is the color of communication, and Sagittarius signifies a gaining of perspective on reality, through such things as religion, philosophy, and metaphysics. The degree of our metaphysical understanding is in direct proportion to the degree that we can communicate with ourselves and with God. When there is full and complete communication the perfect peace of blue becomes a reality.
It may seem strange that Sagittarius, a fire sign, corresponds to blue, the coolest of the colors. The fire of Sagittarius, though, is more like the cool and constant and cosmic fire of the stars, rather than any fire we know in our earthly realm.
It is out of the silence of blue that understanding comes. The metaphysician Swedenbourg has told us that angels speak softly and with great subtlety, so to hear them we must attain to a certain level of inner peace, otherwise their communications might be disrupted by the static of chaos. B50, El Morya, carries as its primary thought form “I will that thy will be my will.” This is the highest philosophy, and in fact, we may say that all the flaws that exist in any and all philosophical systems are because the will of the philosopher has somehow muddied the clarity of the philosophy.
Capricorn – Royal Blue
Royal blue is the color of the intuition, and Capricorn is the sign of efficiency. There is no more efficient way of living that being in tune with one’s clear intuition. One of the negative traits of Capricorn is that it has a strong tendency toward depression, and Royal Blue is the darkest of colors. Depression, though, is always caused by an inability to be in touch with one’s intuition, for if one were attuned to it, one would be able to see the spiritual light that lies beyond all the seeming darkness, chaos, and negativity. Royal Blue is the color of King David who is the patriarch corresponding to Malkuth, the 10th station on the tree of life. Malkuth means “kingdom” and signifies the earth plane – that part of the tree of life where the light is most enveloped in shadows.
Royal Blue can help a person who has extreme issues with authority and authority figures, and Capricorn is the sign of authority.
Aquarius — Violet
I am dubious about referring to violet as the color of spirituality, for all colors are spiritual. Everything is spiritual. I think it’s more accurate to say the violet is the color of recognizing and attuning to spirituality. Aquarius is the sign which recognizes that there is no difference between you and me, that we are the same at a deep level, that all reality is connected, that we are a group, and that we need to support each other. Attaining to this is the spiritual way of living.
Violet is the color of the imagination, and Aquarius love to imagine all the wonderful things that could be in the future. Violet can also signify6 too much contemplation, and Aquarius can sometimes get so caught up in contemplating the future that it loses touch with the needs of the present.
Aquarius is the sign of support, and Violet the color of healing. What is healing other than finding the needed support to move forward and to regain one’s balance? The ideal of Aquarius is to see all of life as supportive – to see that even negative and difficult situations are there in an attempt to support our learning and our ability to let go. This equates with the transformative nature of Violet and the transmutative nature of Pale Violet.
Pisces – Magenta
There is no wavelength of light that produces the color magenta. At one end of the spectrum we have red. If we seek wavelengths of light slower than red we find infra-red, which is not a color – it’s invisible. And at the other end of the spectrum we find violet, beyond which is ultra violet, also invisible. So the color magenta is actually made up the wavelengths of red and violet. This is different, for instance, from yellow-green, in that there is actually a single wavelength of light rays that we perceive as yellow-green.
Just as the color magenta takes in the whole spectrum, the sign Pisces is a summary of all the other signs. Pisces has no real quality of its own. Pisces is all qualities, it is the fullness and completeness of the zodiac made manifest. Magenta is the color immediately beyond our physicality, and it is this realm toward which Pisces yearns.
Magenta is love in the little things. First of all, who decides what are the little things and what are the big things? Pisces is the sign that is most likely to see the seeming little things and the seeming big things as equal.
Clear – Pluto, the Moon’s North Node
This is the only color in Aura-Soma that is not ruled by a sign. Actually “clear” is not a color but rather a vehicle for receiving and reflecting the light. The planet Pluto has no vibration of its own, but intensifies the vibration of anything with which it comes in contact. I also ascribe the Moon’s North Node to “clear” because in Hindu astrology the gem stone corresponding to the Moon’s North Node is clear quartz crystal. The North Node signifies the evolutionary direction we are heading toward in the lifetime – that which is pulling us forward toward enlightenment so that we too are then able to fully receive and reflect the light.
It is interesting to note that different colors react differently to the addition of light, causing them to become pastel. The color that reacts the strongest to this is red, for red, being the most earthly colors (it is the color of slowest vibration and is at the bottom of the color spectrum and corresponds to the first chakra), is the color in most need of light. Humans have recognized this by giving light-infused red a separate name: pink.
When clear becomes opaque, not allowing light to pass through it but reflecting all of it, it becomes white. The color which can make white look dirty and/or dim is the color yellow. Think of old paper, which turns yellow, or old ivory, or white sheets, which, when they turn yellow appear to be dingy. This signifies that Leo (Yellow) is supposed to take on and become infused with the light, rather than allowing its ego to filter and hence dim the light. On the other hand blue is put into whites when they are washed to brighten them. This signifies that understanding (Sagittarius) is a perfect vehicle for the light, and that the Sagittarian tendency toward friendliness, generosity and freedom provides the light with a perfect vehicle for expressing itself.
There are a great many ways to perform color healing, but I feel that the best way, by far, is projecting color through intent.
Color is light, and so is associated alchemically with the realm of fire a – a realm of change, mutation, transformation and transmutation. Color used as medicine can uplift the spirit, and as this energy steps down into the denser levels of ones being, can bring profound healing to the mental, emotional, and physical levels of one’s being.
I have been fascinated for a long time by the many different devices and modalities one can use to perform color healing. One author says to sit in the light streaming through a sheet of stained glass. One company produces a pen that shines colored light through a quartz crystal. I know a practitioner who has a box you look into that projects light into your eyes that shines through slices of different gemstones, depending on what you dial in – ruby, emerald, etc. The problem with all of these techniques is that if you wish to change colors quickly, you can’t. The only technique that allows quick and fluid changes in color is projection of color through your imagination.
Americans like their gadgets, and they definitely feel more comfortable with material, tangible paraphernalia, especially when it looks professional. New Age tools have an allure, and can also impress ones client. But there is no tool like the imagination, even though it isn’t expensive and you can’t show it to a client.
I have spent over four decades studying color and the means of various colors. It’s an extremely interesting and worthwhile branch of knowledge, but when it comes to color healing the ultimate way to select a color is just to go with what feels right, with whatever colors it occurs to you to use at the moment. The intuition is capable of far faster assessment and selection than the rational mind.
The problem is most people lack the self-confidence needed to listen to their intuition, and then to follow through by using the color that comes to them. People have such a fear of being wrong, of not “doing it right,” and of failing that signals from their intuition are drowned out by all these misgivings and apprehensions. If you find yourself having this sort of problem, I recommend that you take the Bach Flower Remedy larch, which helps one to be more self-confident.
Another problem that can happen is that a person who wants to perform color therapy says, “I’m not getting any color at all.” In this case, the best thing to do is to just start the healing work. Set the intent that you are going to project the most needed color, that the Spirit of Healing will select the right color for you, and that you don’t even need to know what the color is. In fact, you could work for a whole lifetime as a color therapist and never once see in your mind what color you are using. Not seeing the color does not mean it’s not there. The healing may be totally effective without your ever being privy to the details of it.
And a very important point is this: you need to allow the color to change, whenever it feels like it, and however it feels like it. When I engage in color healing I often see more than one color at a time, and they often change, sometimes returning to the original color at some point. At other times there is little or no change in the color. The most important thing to remember is that you need to allow the color to do what it wants to do, go where it needs to go, and last for however long it wants to last.
Always see yourself as the vehicle, the conduit. You are channeling the color from Spirit to the person you are working on, and all you need to do is to relax, be open, and let go of extraneous thoughts.
The word “kabbalah” comes from an Aramaic word meaning “to receive.” There are two ways of receiving: (1) receiving for the self alone, which is what the ego wants. This way will always create suffering and cut us off from the light. (2) receiving for the sake of giving. This is the key to attuning to the light and reaching total fulfillment. God is about giving, and if we are to become like God, then we need to overcoming the selfishness of the ego and share what we receive from the universe, be it time, energy, intelligence, money or anything else. Through sharing we dissolve the boundaries of the ego, heal conflict, and affirm the fact that we truly are all one and are all manifestations of God.
The thing I find so interesting about Kabbalah is that it is at root so simple. All you need is love! Now it is true that kabbalah can be very complicated, and for those of you who delight in learning and studying all the details of our miraculous reality, Kabbalah can take you into a very intricate world to show you all the subtle workings of energies.
The fact that Kabbalah is at once totally simple and yet very complicated is mirroried in our own bodies. On a chemical level we are elaborate beings consisting of a myriad of organic compounds all working together in a vast symphony. But on another level you don’t need to understand chemistry, physiology and psychology to smile at someone. Really the simplist definition I can give for Kabbalah is that it’s the art of continually being kinder and kinder to other people! That’s the universal medicine!
Kabbalah tells us there are essentially two kinds of personal light: the light we have already assimilated within ourselves — our inner light, and the light we are yet to take in — the surrounding light, which we have not yet grown into.
Each of use burns with an inner light, but unless we have reached enlightenment there is still a part of our light which we have not integrated into our consciousness. Our task here on earth is to complete that process of taking in an becoming that light so that we are a complete manifestation of it. This is what evolution is all about.
How do we do this? By finding our limits and pushing against them. For instance, if you have a hard time being generous, then generosity is more a part of your surrounding light, and is something you are working toward becoming. If you are a naturally generous person, then generosity is part of your inner light. By knowing our inadequacies and current limits we become aware of that surrounding light which we are working on becoming.
“The 72 Names of God” is a book by Yehuda Berg. These names of God each have three letters and are derived from three consecutive verses found in Exodus.
The names can be used for healing and blessing and are very powerful. Rather than being spoken, the names are to be visualized. When I visualize one of them I like to see it emanating light in all directions. Of course the more feeling and intensity you put in to the visualization the more effective it will be.
There is one of these names that most strongly corresponds to your own energy. To find out which one it is call 1-800-kabbalah and they’ll be happy to tell you once they have your birthday. To learn more about the 72 names, go to 72.com. At this website, if you click on “free tools” you will be shown a Name of God and a meditation pertaining to it.
Resistance correctly applied is a key to spiritul growth. There is a lot of students I have taught Kabbalah who have had problems understanding this idea of resistance. For one thing, we tend to put a negative connotation on this word. The type of resistance of which Kabbalah speaks, though, is purely positive, in fact wonderful!
Resistance is all about going against any force which holds us down or back. Resistance is what balances the yin and the yang. for instance, water is yin and fire is yang. Put them together and either the water evaporates, if the fire is stronger at the time, or the fire is put out, if the water is stronger at the time. But lets put some resistance into the equation, lets put a steel cooking pan between them, something to resist the fire totally evaporating the water, and to resist the water spilling onto the fire and putting it out. Now we’re cooking!
Resistance is not saying something negative when its come to mind and you have the impulse to do so. Resistance is not eating that piece of chocolate cake just because it’s there. Standing up is an act of resisting gravity. Maybe you know you need to meditate, but it’s easier to just turn on the T.V. Can you resist the impulse to do so, and go ahead and meditate? Resistance engaged in at the right place and time is what makes your spiritual light burn brighter.
One of the most important forms of resistance is that which occurs inwardly — resisting the impulse to place your consciousness in the past or future. The only way to do this is to be in the NOW, to place your awareness in the moment. This act of resistance, repeated over and over can eventually clear all karmas and lead us into higher and higher states of consciousness.
Water. It moves, if flows, it warms, it cools. Water takes on the imprint of the energies around it. Through our intent we can both clear water of the vibrations already in it, and imbue it with whatever thoughtform we want. Because of all the negativity on planet earth water has become polluted. Not just by chemicals and physical toxins, but by psychic toxins as well, our collective worries, fears, and stress.
In Yehuda Berg’s book “The 72 Names of God” there is a name for purifying water. (To learn more of the 72 names see the brief summary in this blog under “The 72 Names of God”). This name consists of three Hebrew letters: vav, mem, and bet. To use this name to purity water visualize the letters in that order — vav, mem, bet, and visualize them from right to left — this is the way Hebrew is read. See the letters as either black or white, or maybe gold, whatever your intuition tells you. Visualize them within a container you’ve filled with water. Use your intent to see those letters glowing within the water and filling it with clarity, cleaning and clearing the water of all impurities, restoring it to its original pristine state. You can do this for a moment or two. or for a few minutes, or longer, whatever you want. Once you have purified your water in this manner you can drink it — it will give you energy and help you in every way. You can also use it for cooking and cleaning. You can also spray it around your house to energize and bless. Use it anywhere and everywhere you would use any other water. If you don’t know what these Hebrew letters look like you can go to http://www.hebrew4christians.com/Grammar/Unit_One/Aleph-Bet/aleph-bet.html and see them. This website is a wonderful source of information, history and lore for the Hebrew alphabet. And by the way, you can also visualize these three letters inside your own body to purify all the water that’s there. And while you’re at it, visualize the whole earth with vav-mem-bet glowing deep through all the oceans.
The Ultimate Sin
A Great Rabbi said that the Ultimate Sin is not having fun. God wants us to enjoy life. Maybe the reason that Eve ate that apple in the first place is that she got bored and wasn’t having any fun any more.Have you had fun today?Fun is often trivialized, but in spiritual terms it’s serious business. People of the current world spend a lot of time, energy and money trying to have fun, but I think they often don’t achieve their goal. It’s hard to have fun when you’re carrying around bundles of worries. The solution? Stop worrying! I know it’s easier said than done, but the attempt to cease worrying is one of the noblest pursuits there is. Remember: the soul doesn’t worry. Only the ego can worry. You may think you can have fun yesterday or tomorrow, but the truth is, you can only have fun now. The ego delights in the past and future. In fact, the Ego is afraid of now! The ego loves to live in nostalgia (past), guilt and remorse (past), fears (which are fantasies about the future), and idealized visions of what could be (future). Drop it all and drop in to the present. Try some cheap, spontaneous fun!
God is not a CEO
Many people think, “why would God be interested in my little problem when there are so many others in the world who have far more dire problems than I, and so many bigger challences he/she has to address?” This question is based on a misconception. God is not a CEO working within a limited time frame and with limited resources. The head of a multimillion dollar corporation would not be expeccted to worry about how sharp the secretary’s pencils are — because that CEO probably has a very tight schedule. There are only 24 hours in a day, and the more important you are the more important your time is! This is how relativistic reality works — it’s all about limits.But the sages have told us that God is infinite.Let’s say we’re going to visit a place that is an infinite number of miles away from earth. The fact is, that if we take ten paces toward that place we’re no closer to it than if we travel 50 million light years toward it. So in those terms ten paces and 50 million light years are equal. And by the same token God is just as concerned about the life of a blade of grass as he/she is about the whole earth. God has enough caring to go around, and far more than that — more than is possible for us to even conceive.The Kabbalists tell us that everything we do is important. Smiling at someone as you pass them on the street sends powerful waves of love through the spiritual realms. Every thought you think generates energy that is having an effect on the spirit realms.Our physical reality is what Kabbalists call the 1 percent realm, in contradistinction to the 99 percent realm which is the realm of spiritual realities, other universes, abode of angels, etc. It’s easy to get so embroiled in this 1 percent realm that we slip into thinking it’s all there is — that we are limited by time and space, that there’se not enough to go around. The truth is that if we allow ourselves to become a conduit for the spiritual light we realize that all limitations are ultimately illusions, that we can access infinite love, wisdom and power. And that everything matters.As one Kabbalist said, each and every blade of grass his its own individual angel that watches over it.
Problems: What are they?
There was a man with lots of problems. He didn’t get along with his wife or his kids. He had health challenges. He didn’t like his job. His employer didn’t like him. He felt like everything in his existence was a mess.So he decided to go to a famous Rabbi, a holy man who had deep spiritual insight, and to ask the Rabbi why he had all these problems, and how he could get rid of them.When he got to the Rabbi’s house the Rabbi was with someone else and the Rabbi’s wife showed the man to the parlor and asked him to wait. There was a comfortable chair in the parlor and a warm fire (it was winter), and the man sat down in the chair and soon fell asleep.And he had a dream: In the dream he saw a host of beautiful angels marching past him in a solemn procession. Thy were glowing with light and he was mesmerized by their glory. He saw they were proceeding into a dark wood.And after them he saw a host of dark demons marching, ugly, nasty-looking creatures. There was a lot of them, and they were following the angels into the dark wood.This all made him very curious so he followed the demons and angels deep into the wood until they came to a great circular open area in the midst of which was a gigantic balance scale.All the angels climbed into the right-hand pan of the balance scale until the pan was near full and touching the ground. Then the demons began to climb into the left-hand pan. As they were doing so the man began recognizing the demons. Each one of them had been given birth to by a negative deed which the man had committed in his past. If he looked at any single demon he could even begin to remember which negative deed it was.Turning to the angels he realized that he had given birth to them also through his positive deeds. As he watched the demons crawl into their pan he saw the pan growing heavier and heavier, and as they weighed the angels down, their pan began to rise into the air. “Oh no!” thought the man “I am witnessing my own judgement!”But then a most wondrous thing happened. A motly host of beings burst through the trees into the open circle. They were dressed very colorfully in a variety of clothes. They ran over to the pan which was loading up with demons and began pulling them off one by one. “Who are these strange people?” thought the man. And as he looked at them he realized that these beings were his problems. There was his hernia, all dressed in red. And that one there who was all in tatters were his bills he couldn’t pay. And that one there was obviously the embodiment of his problems with his wife. And that dark one there was his depression. And he realized that all of his problems, every one of them were actually his allies, were helping him to clear negativity, were neutralizing his bad karma.And just then the Rabbi’s wife came in and woke him and said, “The Rabbi can see you now.””Oh,” said the man, “Uh, well, that’s O.K. I think I found the answer to my question. I know the Rabbi’s time is valuable, so I think I’ll be on my way. But thanks anyway.”

Spontaneous movement has the power to heal all illnesses. Many cultures have methods of spontaneous movement therapy – this type of bodywork can be found throughout history in many times and places. The purpose of this book is to encourage you to engage in spontaneous movement, and support you in healing yourself through this wonderful method.
Illness is always caused by an imbalance in the energy field. An organ or joint is either suffering from trapped energy, or is not receiving enough energy flow. The Chinese, in their wonderful simplicity say that energy does four things: it flows up, it flows down, it comes in, it goes out. Wherever it is impeded in these four movements, we tend to develop pathology, be it minor or major
Spontaneous movement allows ones physical energy system to clear trapped energy. This is more likely to happen gradually than quickly, because the body is a creature of habit, and responds more readily to habits being changed in small increments over time than it does to sudden shifts. Therefore you must give spontaneous movement a chance to heal you by doing it regularly over an extended period. I don’t think of spontaneous movement as something I’ll just do for awhile, but as a part of my lifestyle which I’ll do until I die.
Sudden shifts, though, can and will happen WHEN YOUR BEING IS READY FOR THEM. Don’t try to make them occur. DON’T FORCE ANYTHING. Just let the spontaneous movement happen.
The biggest problem with spontaneous movement that I have found is that when I suggest to someone that they engage in it, the person is often too inhibited to allow the spontaneous movement to be effective. Most people have developed a relationship to their body which is highly patterned and deeply fixed. We tend not to be aware of this, for our body is our environments, and as Marshall Mcluhan says, “environments are invisible.”
One way to help a person over their entrenched psycho/physical patterns is to suggest that they engage in EXPERIMENTAL MOVEMENT, that is, PLAY WITH THEIR BODY – try out different movements. See how many movements you can think of to perform. Think of how many ways you can move your body. And as you this be aware of how some of them will feel much better to engage in than others. These are the ones you need.
You are best off moving slowly and fluidly at first. Slowly because when you’re being slow its easier to be aware of the physical feelings you are having as you move, and fluid, that is, not pausing, because you are then less likely to be consciously controlling the movement through choices.
I thought a long time about writing this book before starting it. I wasn’t sure what structure to give the book, but then decided that the book needed to be structured in the same way as spontaneous movement – spontaneously, as it unfolds.
Your body is a vast entity. It is a universe. It contains all your karma and your past lives. Your physical body is only a part of your body, actually a small part. As I describe to you some of the many possibilities of spontaneous movement I don’t want you to feel overwhelmed. Don’t try to do too many things at once. Stay with what you’re doing in the moment, and relish the release! Spontaneous movement is where fun and healing meet!
My suggestion is to start with just your head and neck. The neck is made to move in many directions, it is a being which loves flexibility. In astrology it is ruled by the sign Taurus, whose negative characteristic is stubbornness and rigidity. The challenges of living can certainly make a neck rigid. As we try to hold out against the difficulties and negativities we have to deal with, our neck can so easily go stiff.
As you move your neck slowly and fluidly you will experience places of restriction. These painful areas are boundaries of movement, where your body is telling you that this is a place of tension. Respect that message and proceed lovingly.
Here is one of the most important points in this book: YOU NEED TO BE AWARE OF THE TYPE OF PAIN YOU ARE EXPERIENCING WHEN YOU MOVE SPONTANEOUSLY. This is the key to your success. There is a pain which actually feels good. The good pain is your body telling you that you are helping it. An example of this good pain is getting up in the morning and stretching. You do this because your body wants to do it, because it feels right and good.
Listen to your body. When you feel a place of restriction, gently stretch into it. Try either holding the stretch, or you might try backing off from it and repeating the same stretch again, maybe even a number of times.
John Barnes, who is an authority on stretching says that you may hold a stretch anywhere from 90 seconds to 5 minutes! Always remember though, if your body says STOP, or THAT’S TOO MUCH, then stop.
Most people love to receive massage. Spontaneous movement is giving yourself an internal massage. And in fact self massage is another facet of spontaneous movement. As you stretch your neck you may reach up and massage it .
There is a chiropractor who has based a whole therapeutic system around stretching the neck forward and then with both hands gently pulling it down toward your chest. Try this, and then as you do it gently move the neck from side to side.
As you move your neck in all directions, try opening your mouth, stretching your jaw. Move it from side to side. Your tongue can stretch out – it too can go in many directions. When you stick your tongue out as far as you can you automatically constrict your throat, which massages your throat. This is a traditional yoga exercise to alleviate sort throat. As you do this you may what to open your eyes as widely as you can, as if you were surprised, and also stretch all your fingers out as far as you can.
The muscles of your face can also make many motions. Raise and lower your forehead, pucker your lips, make funny faces! Half of all the acupuncture meridians either begin or end on the face, and through massaging your face you can stimulate them.
The facial muscles are used to give social signals – smiling, frowning, recognition, as in a wink. It is social unacceptable to contort the face in all sorts of directions. This is one of the greatest inhibiting factors to spontaneous movement – the fact that we are all instilled with the idea that we aren’t supposed to move our bodies when we don’t have a purpose to do so. Moving the body randomly is something a child does until they grow up enough to learn to “be still.” When children engage in all sorts of random movements they are releasing pent-up energy, giving themselves some intuitive therapy. An adult can recapture the ability to do this.
For spontaneous movement to have a therapeutic effect the movements needn’t be big or drastic. Subtle, small movements can have much healing power. It can be hard for people to believe this, especially Westerners.
A lovely example of the power of subtle movement is cranial sacral therapy. In this healing modality the therapist makes very gentle and light contact with the patient and simply tracks with and supports the subtle and oftentimes almost imperceptible movements that his or her body is making. The results can be profound, healing all sorts of problems, from skeletal misalignment to difficulties with organ functioning.
Your body is always moving in an attempt to heal itself. If you can listen to it and allow it to engage in these movements, great healing can be the result.
Movement increases circulation, both of blood and chi, and it is smooth, unimpeded circulation that rids us of infection and can correct problems of misalignment.
I said earlier that spontaneous movement is giving yourself an internal massage. It can also be giving yourself in external massage as well. For instance, you can massage your face with your hands. You can tap your face with your fingers. How much sinus trouble would be helped simply by tapping the sinus areas with the fingers! Slap your cheeks. Pull your ears! Slap your neck up and down from the bottom of it to your skull, back and forth! Directly behind the bottom of your ears is an important acupoint called gall bladder 20 which helps the low back, ears and eyes, and which calms nervous energy. Slap in this vicinity.
I’ve studied a lot about acupoints and anatomical features of the subtle anatomy, but as I write I’m going to try to bring as little as possible of this into what I’m telling you, because I don’t want you to intellectualize the activity of spontaneous movement, or to try to figure out what you need. Such activities are fine, but my goal is to get you to move, and to do it in the way that a poet writes — from your soul! Experimentally! You can’t do anything wrong when you spontaneously move. Can a grain of sand in the desert be out of place? Ha ha! And even if it is out of place, the wind will make sure to put it back where it belongs!
If you’re ever sore from doing spontaneous movement, it could be either because you did too much, pushed your body too far, or maybe because you are going through a process of detoxification. When you are moving spontaneously, you are feeding yourself with fresh energy as you release old, stagnant energy. If you overfeed yourself, that is, try to make the process of release happen too quickly, you can get energy indigestion. Listen to your body, for it will tell you how fast it wants to go.
Have you thought of spontaneously moving your vocal chords? Let’s see what they do! Do they have some funny sounds to make? Some words to say? Remember, your conscious mind doesn’t have to be involved with this, or try to make those words or sounds make sense. Let the sounds out, and see what comes out.
Here is a fun exercise: Say a bunch of two letter words that consist of a consonant and a vowel, for instance bo, me, do, la, ja, ha, ro, etc. You may chant or sing these rhythmically, at any speed you want. Just enjoy the texture of the consonants, and the way all the different sounds feel. Repeat the ones you like best. You can also make up nonsense words, or say any words that come to your mind, be they single words or whole sentences.
Doing exercises of this nature encourages the unconscious aspects of your being to express themselves and can trigger the release of pent-up energy.
When I was around 25 years old I was seeing a doctor, an osteopath, who gave me an article he thought I might be interested in. It was about another osteopath who had put together a room with padded walls and a sort floor. He had done this to give his patients a room in which they could be alone to engage in spontaneous movement. The room was totally private – it had no windows, and had been soundproofed – in case a person wanted to scream or make other loud noises in it.
The doctor found that patients with incurable illnesses, as well as patients who weren’t responding to any of the other treatments he offered were greatly benefited by going in this room and doing exactly whatever their impulses told them to do.
The question is, since this treatment was effective, why didn’t it catch on? Why aren’t many practitioners using this technique?
The same doctor who had given me the article on this technique said that he had known a number of other osteopaths who had learned homeopathy and who had stopped practicing it after awhile. “Why did they do this?” I asked, “is it because it didn’t heal the patient?” “No!” was the answer I received, “it is because it was too effective, because it worked too well! The cured patients didn’t come back. Homeopathy was bad for business!”
Years later I was taking a shiatsu class and the teacher gave us a hand out on a Chinese therapy known as “Re-do,” which is spontaneous movement therapy. This is identical to what the aforementioned osteopath with his padded room was engaging in.
The only difference is that in the practice of “re-do” you start out with two preliminary exercises to warm you up: First you sit in a chair and as you inhale you twist your whole spine to one side as you turn your neck and look behind you. Then you let out your breath you come back to a forward facing position. Next you inhale again and twist around in the other direction, then letting your breath out and coming back to the forward facing position. You do this over and over, twisting one way and then the other, for a number of times. This helps to limber up the spine before you engage in the spontaneous movement.
Next you spread your arms wide above your head as you lean back and take a deep breath in, and then as you exhale you lean all the way over from the waist and put your arms between your legs and your hands on the floor. You repeat this movement again several times. Once you’ve done this you flow into the spontaneous movement, doing whatever you want.
The three positions for engaging in spontaneous movement are: (1) lying down, (2) standing, and (3) seated. The value of lying down is that you don’t have to maintain your balance. A bed is good, as well as a carpeted floor or a floor mat. The down side of using a bed is that if you get too spontaneous, you could fall off, and so you’ll need to control yourself — at least a little!
A great spontaneous exercise to do in bed involves working on the hara, which is the area between the pelvic bone and the ribs, that is, the whole abdomen and all those organs below the diaphragm.
A good time to do this exercise is in the morning before you get up. Simply press all around on your belly! It’s just that simple. When you find a place that is sore or sensitive, gently massage it. You may also press down and hold. Don’t, though, cause yourself discomfort. Go at this in an easy, gentle manner. This exercise can stimulate all your internal organs, and as you work on your large and small intestines absorption of nutrients can improve, and elimination can be enhanced.
By the way, as you work on the hara its best to proceed in a clockwise position, as this is the directional flow of your colon.
When we engage in spontaneous movement in a standing position we can allow the i[[er limbs to have full mobility, stretching the shoulder muscles and joints, and bringing greater flexibility and freedom to the whole arm.
A great stretch for the arm is to hook the fingers over the high ledge of a doorway and allow oneself to hang a little bit. You can also bend the fingers backwards and place them against a wall, pushing against it to stretch the arm.
Do not assume that spontaneous movement is only for affecting the body. Our body is a reflection of our personality, as we release the pent-up stress in it an inevitable reaction will occur in our emotional and mental bodies. This is a wonderful process, for our body is a mirror of the other aspects of our being. Our body allows us to know ourselves, if we will just observe what is going on in it – turn our attention to what we are feeling.
The Tibetans have a meditation discipline known as dzogchen. Dzogchen is not practiced for a certain time each day, but is meant to be practiced all the time. It is the continuous attunement to the void, to the source of all existence. It is living in the moment.
✴ Here is a complete listing of the mutated Sabian Symbols which I have recently channeled. If you’re wondering why the thirty degrees of each sign is number with roman numerals rather than regular ones, its because I have no idea how to turn off the numbering system of my word processing program, which screws up in a variety of different ways when I try to number with regular numerals. I hope all of you gain meaningful insights from applying these to your charts. And, of course, as always, I’d love to hear your responses.
