Phase 46. Absolute Certainty (Ayin Resh Yud)

Angel: ARIEL (AH-ree-EL) Perciever and Revealer

Scorpio:16 A scientist using gravity waves to communicate with other universes. (Omega symbol) Manifesting/Experimental

(Degree Angel: ALADIAH (a-LA-dee-YAH) Looks Can Kill: Protection from the Evil Eye, Divine Grace)

This degree can form connections with other levels and realms of existence, and can create changes that are surprising, unlikely, or seemingly impossible. There is always a way to go beyond any limits, and the means to do so are close at hand. A tremendous resourcefulness is found here, for this degree is a gateway to the unexpected.

The Chandra symbol for this degree is “Charon ferries the dead across the river Styx.” The land of the dead across the river Styx is as radically different a place from the realm we live in as the other universes with which the scientist communicates. The question is, how to connect. If you’re ready, and the time is right, connection is easy. But fear, and disbelief in the possibility of connecting are what often keep us from connecting. And so this degree is an ambassador who can help others to feel safe and secure as these transitions are made. It senses the existence of these other places, maybe senses that it has been to them before. It intuitively knows there are realms beyond death, and that no limits are absolute. How very uplifting and consoling this is. And often this degree carries out this function as ambassador without even being aware it is what he or she is doing.

Pleiadian Symbol: The volcano goddess laughing.

Azoth Symbol: In wind and rain a funerary tumulus is seen on the steppes.

Seed degree: Libra 8. A rare type of honey imbued with magical healing powers. (Omega Symbol). Love is the universal healing agent, and its effects open us up to new and ever-before-realized possibilities.

A vast junkyard. (Chandra Symbol). To clear away all the detritus and unnecessary elements from our relating allows us to enter into completely new and unexpected areas of connecting.

Fulfillment degree: Capricorn 19. In the night, someone peering into a dark window. (Omega Symbol). Reaching beyond the known into the unknown puts us in touch with uncertainties, but the also possibility of making intimate connection with beings or information which may be come our allies.

A half-eaten piece of bread. (Chandra Symbol). When we leave behind old realms to encounter new ones, we develop a heightened sense of what we need to nurture and sustain ourselves.


In other worlds they heard his playing with gravity, which came to them as a kind of falling which called out to them like a voice echoing through a dark cave. They received his pattern of waves and quickly understood his code. He wished to speak with them, to know if they really existed. Yes, they replied, we are here, we hear you, and we know you think we are far away, but we say to you, we are here, inside you, one of countless universes that are born every moment out of even the slightest impulse of your imagination, a branch of that infinite tree whose roots and branches are one, and that grows simultaneously in every direction at once, not only the directions of which you can conceive, but infinite others beyond your conception. How may we help you?

Scorpio 17. Empty rooms with perfect walls and floors. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Sensitive

(Degree Angel: LAUVIAH (LO-vee-YAH) Banishying the Remnants of Evil, Victory)

When you create an empty space you make a place for something new to come in, and when you do this continuously you maintain a clear, clean place on which the mind can project its imaginings and thereby come to know itself. This degree has a gift for clearing out the past and for staying prepared for whatever is coming toward it out of the future.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “The mountain abode of a hermit.” There’s an ability here to operate at a remove, for obviously not everyone who has this degree goes off to live in the mountains, but all of them do, to some extent, create that abode around them so that they can do what they do without being so affected by the energies of others and the world of humans in general. It means that they bring a freshness to whatever they encounter, and help others to divest themselves of the mental and physical pollution with which they are always having to contend. How clear this mountain air seems to be, how refreshing, and how much its atmosphere seems to give us greater space and freedom in which to move, just as the empty rooms of the Omega Symbol do.

Pleiadian Symbol: A space alien infant given to a woman to be raised.

Azoth Symbol: The king’s retinue on a secret journey.

Seed degree: Libra 20. In a lush, dark forest a unicorn prancing. (Omega Symbol). Finding purity and clarity deep in the inner richness of ourselves inspires us to make a larger clearer space for ourselves in the outer world.

A man with a single horn coming out of his forehead. (Chandra Symbol). Becoming acutely attuned to the power of our own intuition assists us in removing ourselves from all confusing and disturbing energies so that we may commune with the creative intelligence of the universe.

Fulfillment degree: Aquarius 19. Suddenly a woman laughs, now knowing why. (Omega Symbol). Clearing our lives of that which is unnecessary or merely taking up room gives us a space in which to experience joy in its pure form.

Loud crushing noises as a glacier moves. (Chandra Symbol). Retreating from the conflicts of the world we are then freed so that we may experience our own inner conflicts and allow them to sponaneously unwind – even though this may take time and patience.

Five white cubes have sat on the coast line of the Avradan Sea for centuries. Each one is a hollow cube in which exists a room with perfectly smooth walls and floors, and two large doorless doorways on walls opposite each other.

The cubes are in no patterned arrangement but seem randomly scattered along a half mile of shoreline. They are known to be at least 4000 years old, but show no signs of wear, and exhibit no cracking, pitting or marring of any kind on their surface either inside or outside. The walls are approximately nine inches thick and the rooms vary in dimension, the smallest one being about 10 feet square, the largest 15 feet square. They are referred to as The Rooms of Idaro, named after a small city several miles from them. Only one historian has ever claimed knowledge of their maker, but says he had sworn never to reveal it.

It has been noted that certain people throughout history have become obsessed with visiting these rooms and sleeping in them, claiming they receive something from them which is needed in the extreme, but which they cannot define or even describe.

The Alchemist Serapis says he believes they emit some form of therapeutic energy to everyone, but that only certain people are aware enough of what this is to be consciously attracted to it.

All I know is that when I visited them it was a profound pleasure to sit within, on a cloudy day, and observe for hours the gradually shifting shadows as I listened to the surf.

Scorpio 18. Something waking for a moment in a cocoon. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Receptive

(Degree Angel: HAHAIAH (ha-HA-ee-YAH) Unconditional Love, Refuge, Shelter)

All of existence is the way it is for a reason, and this degree senses this – feels within itself the stirrings of something more expanded which is to come. There is a great sensitivity here, especially to the limitations and restrictions of life. It yearns for something more and its yearnings will persist until it gives in to its impulse to transform.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “People holding hands around a table. One candle is burning in the middle of the table.” We connect, and in this case we need only hands to do it. We don’t need to speak the same language, or agree on anything except holding hands. What is at the center of this simple act of connecting is the candle – the spiritual light. The relationship of this to the Omega Symbol is that the circle of hands are like the cocoon and the candle within it equates with whatever is awakening for a moment in the cocoon. It is not time for a full awakening, but the awakening is near, or else there would not be this momentary awakening.

This degree awakens the spiritual light in others, and does so by the simple act of connection. Done over and over, these little sparks of awakening accumulate, and will finally result in the great awakening.

Pleiadian Symbol: Bells on horses’ feet sounding through falling leaves.

Azoth Symbol: Bees pollinating a sunflower.

Seed degree: Scorpio 2. A lighthouse is moved inland. (Omega Symbol). When we nurture and protect the guiding spiritual light within ourselves we find new energies stirring within us that impel us toward higher consciousness.

A large stately bronze horse. (Chandra Symbol). Connecting with others for the purpose of focusing more intently on the spiritual light puts us in touch with a tremendous inner and enduring power.

Fulfillment degree: Pisces 19. A man tilling a field of flax. (Omega Symbol). The urge toward further growth and to overcome that which restricts us leads to emotional healing and an urge to dedicate the self to whatever will further it.

Palm trees laden with dates. (Chandra Symbol). Through connecting with others for the purpose of expanding the light, we discover much to nourish us and provide us with abundance.


The race of fairies known as the Isindar have no capacity to reproduce of their own, and even though they enjoy all the delights of sensual experience the women among them are incapable of becoming pregnant.

It was Isopus Pan who discovered the secret of why the Isindar do not die out. There is a cave in the far northern wilderness of Peth where dwells a giant spider who captures humans who are compelled there, sometimes over great distances, according to Pan, by some magic force.

This spider, rather than preying on those humans wraps them in a coocoon and hangs them in its cave where they live in suspension for a number of years, finally emerging from their wrappings with fully developed organs of flight and forgetful of their former histories. It is these beings with their beautifully colored and iridescent wings who we have come to know as the Isindar Fairies.

Scorpio 19. An angel kisses a man while he sleeps. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Responsible

(Degree Angel: YEZALEL (YAY-za-LEL) Heaven on Earth, Fidelity, Loyalty, and Allegiance)

There is a tremendous receptivity here to the love coming from higher forces. Even in the midst of darkness this degree carries a subtle light that encourages everything it touches. Even if the person carrying the energy of this degree is mired in negativity, there is always an undercurrent of remembrance of the help and guidance that is always reaching out to us.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A rope going up into the sky.” Here is a thread connecting us to something higher. What is it anchored to? It must be something far above us which we cannot see. It takes a lot of trust to climb the rope. This degree either has a lot of trust and is willing to climb the rope, or is constantly aware of it, constantly tempted by it, until it accepts the challenge. The Chandra Symbol asks the question “will we be safe if we ascend?” and the Omega Symbol answers, “Yes!”

Maybe the angel kisses the man while he sleeps because were he conscious his limiting belief system might not allow the kiss to happen due to not accepting the reality of the angel, or not accepting that he is deserving of such a kiss. Even if he is not consciously aware of this kiss delivered while he sleeps, he takes in its pure loving energy, and this helps him to find the confidence to climb the rope.

Pleiadian Symbol: A bird imitating all the sounds of the jungle.

Azoth Symbol: Unexpected visitors arrive, needing food and shelter.

Seed degree: Scorpio 14. A white marble foot glows pink as it turns into flesh. (Omega Symbol). That which was only a concept moves toward becoming a living reality, which awakens us to the community of higher beings in which we dwell.

Women dressed in black. They are wailing and mourning. (Chandra Symbol). When we allow the energy of sadness to find a way out of our being, we ourselves find a way into higher levels of consciousness. Also, giving into transformation causes the transformation to become ever more pure and intense.

Fulfillment degree: Aries 20. Streets littered with many colors of confetti. (Omega Symbol) Giving in to transformation has a deeply renewing effect on our mind and ability to communicate with others.

An empty courtyard. (Chandra Symbol). When we get above the illusions of this world, even to a small extent, we find an inner sanctum within that allows in light, air, and provides us with a place to re-energize ourselves.


(From Valdarius’ book, “Little Known Facts Concerning Angels.”): “As the mouth is an organ which is used in both speech and the taking in of nourishment it has been noted that those individual’s blessed in their sleep by Angelic Kisses may often go for many months without food, for it seems that nutritive residues from the Angels mouths will, through absorption, provide enough sustenance to the one kissed to last this long. It has also been noted that these individuals, when trying to speak after being kissed can form no words but only open their mouths to emit strange and beautiful melodies, which are words in the language of Angels but untranslatable into the language of humans except by those seers who have long cultivated an acute sense of inner hearing.”

Scorpio 20: A man who carries large sacks of books with him wherever he goes. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Inspired

(Degree Angel: MEBAHEL (May-ba-HEL) Farewell to Arms, Truth, Liberty, and Justice)

There is an accumulation of knowledge here, but can it be used? This degree needs to actualize its wisdom in the immediate world around it, rather than just passively holding what it knows. There is a tendency for the mind to become a barrier to growth and forward movement. The way out of this is to let go of what you think you know, and go spontaneously with where your instinct takes you.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A serpent wrapped around an immense egg.” So much life and wisdom in the books of the Omega Symbol, and so much of the same in the immense egg of the Chandra Symbol. And both the man of the one and the serpent of the other feel as if they have to protect this life and wisdom. Of course wisdom and truth can never be destroyed, but the forms in which they manifest can be – this is what is being protected. We might call this degree “The Guardian of Truth.” Carrying all those books is a burden, but at the right place and the right time this person will be prepared for he will be able to reach in his sacks and pull out what is needed. This is what makes all this inconvenience worth it. And when the egg is ready to hatch, the serpent will then be able to relax his coils and allow the new life to unfold and take wing.

This degree may often do things which seem impractical, or unnecessary, but it senses something others don’t sense, and need to follow these inklings and meet their requirements. Also it needs to develop the ability to go ahead and use what it has, even when it seems there isn’t much outer support for doing so.

Pleiadian Symbol: At the play’s beginning a dark and empty stage.

Azoth Symbol: The diamond shield of a mythical king of old.

Seed degree: Scorpio 26.A witch dressed in black. Her clothes are turning white. (Omega Symbol). Moving toward the light in a grounded way that always keeps physical realities and practicalities in mind, we find ourselves tremendously prepared to help others because of the wealth of information which is ours.

A she-wolf. Her udders full of milk. (Chandra symbol). Contacting an inner primal urge to nurture others we come to realize the profound possibilities we hold within and feel a need to make sure they too are nurtured and protected.

Fulfillment degree: Taurus 20. A man performing a complicated weaving pattern from memory. (Omega Symbol). Feeding our mind with so much information we finally assimilate from it what we most need, and then use that to intuitively engage in the act of creation.

A fork in the road with a blank signpost. (Chandra Symbol). When we are deeply in tune with the wisdom of the life force we realize that it creates its own path rather than having to follow any pre-determined ones.


Salurius Exal, professor, orator and peripetic lecturer could go nowhere without his extensive library, so invented a method of shrinking books, several larg sacks of them hauled in a cart by his donkey, in all comprising several thousand texts. Each book, now only the size of a walnut, had print so fine that it could only be read by the Idani, a race of elves known for their acute vision.

One of these beings, a certain lad named Farquar, accompanied him on his journeys wherever he went and was always ready to search for needed references of quotes, and read to Salurius or his audiences in a high-pitched and piping though nevertheless melodious and perfectly clear voice.
