Phase 3.Miracle Making (Samech Yud Tet)
Angel: SITAEL (SIT-ah-EL)
Aries 11. A hospital for birds. Transforming/Experimental
(Degree Angel: LAUVIAH (LO-vee-YAH) Banishing the Remnants of Evil, Victory)
You carry a powerful spirit of hope. No matter how difficult life becomes you are able to keep renewing your spirit as well as help others to do the same. You know what you need to realign yourself with spirit, and can make a come back from even the most dreadful and trying of situations. This is a precious gift.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Sunlight illuminating dust in the air.” When matter disintegrates it turns to dust, and then is small enough to be carried into the air, to fly, like a flock of birds, soaring to receive the light of the Sun. What was heavy and dark becomes buoyant and infused with light. It is the future of us all, the Seed of Aquarius containing what will be, a vision of glory beyond the illusion of death.
Pleiadian Symbol: A flickering fire creates the illusion of laughter as it reflects off a golden effigy.
Azoth Symbol: From a slowly moving swan rippling circles spread out over a pond.
Seed degree: Leo 1. A magician inventing many new techniques. (Omega Symbol). Opening to the array of magical possibilities our wings are healed, readying our spirit for soaring to greater heights.
A divorced husband and wife enjoying each other’s company. (Chandra Symbol). Acknowledging and accepting our separateness from each other, each particle of life takes on a golden hue of meaning.
Fulfillment degree: Aquarius 1. Deciding to die, a vampire walks into the sunlight. (Omega Symbol). The spirit is healed, allowing all imperfect and unreal imaginings to find the light and be reabsorbed into it.
A two-headed calf. (Chandra Symbol). Witnessing so many seemingly opposing values, we eventually come to see value in everything, from the most glorious, brightest star in the sky, to the tiniest mote of dust on which it shines.
Candles burn all night in the bird hospital, their flames fluttering like wings. The doctors have lit these candles, for they are imbued with sky magic – the trembling flames bring life back into wings.
The flames enter the birds’ dreams and carry them high into a vast blue. It is the sky that heals them, brought there by the mysterious fluttering flames, anchored to their candles by little pieces of sky.
Aries 12. Before the end of a movie, a man leaves the theater. Transforming/Sensitive
(Degree Angel: HAHAIAH (ha-HA-ee-YAH) Unconditional Love, Refuge, Shelter)
You know when to quit, and when to abandon projects or lines of activity that are no longer serving you. You have an open-endedness that allows you to enter into experience in a free and flexible manner, avoiding all entanglements that will waste time or needlessly use up energy. This can frustrate other people’s expectations, but in the long run will often do them good.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “An old woman hears the stars talking to her at night.” The sky full of stories – stories streaming into the earth from every direction, every possible story imaginable. It is why the man leaves the theater – he already knows the story and all its possible endings. The goal is to not become hung up on any one story, but to absorb the wisdom that flows through them all like a divine nectar.
Pleiadian Symbol: A group of spirits flying through the sky toward their home in the north.
Azoth Symbol: A man falling asleep feels his fears melting away.
Seed degree: Leo 13. Hidden passages in a house. over time, their secret has been forgotten. (Omega Symbol). When we overcome our attachment to outcomes we are then allowed to explore the forgotten and neglected parts of ourselves.
A man painting scenes on a ceiling. (Chandra Symbol). The ceiling turns into the sky, and we find that what we have created is speaking to us and whispering ancient secrets.
Fulfillment degree: Pisces 1. At sunset, a petrified forest glows with iridescence. (Omega Symbol). We realize that nothing is ever ended, that even in an opal the drama of light is being enacted.
A field of dandelions. (Chandra Symbol). When what is vast, cosmic, and infinitely far away speaks to us, we find that, mysteriously, it tells us simple truths we have been living with all along.
He’s already seen this movie. Wasn’t he the one who made it? No. But he’s almost sure that he’s the actor playing the lead. He can’t remember making this film. It’s hard to focus on the plot when his curiosity will not let go of these questions. Burning to answer them, he leaves the theater, before the movie ends, to find a mirror so he can see if he is, in fact, the actor on the screen.
Aries 13. A breeze carries a soap bubble thousands of miles. Transforming/Receptive
(Degree Angel: YEZALEL (YAY-za-LEL) Heaven on Earth, Fidelity, Loyalty, and Allegiance)
The purity of your your sensitive and beautiful vision is what protects you. Where others might fail, you succeed because of a high integrity and innocence. Your lightness of being is your best defense against challenges, emergencies and crises. Your ability to keep going can sometimes be astounding.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “The wind blows white sheets hung on a line to dry.” In the Omega Symbol a far traveling, in the Chandra symbol a going nowhere, but sun and air renew and purify the sheets which have been washed clean of the multicolored stains of many dreams – to create a blankness on which new dreams may appear, swirling like the rainbows on the surface of the soap bubble.
Pleiadian Symbol: A crowd of people sensing a sudden shift in group karma.
Azoth Symbol: Nature Devas fecundating a landscape.
Seed degree: Leo 25. A woman incessantly eating pills. (Omega Symbol). Through doing whatever we have to to take care of ourselves, we find we’ve somehow survived the journey.
A circle of neat houses, each one identical. (Chandra Symbol). Becoming one with everything we are able to let go of isolation and specialness and are refreshed and cleansed by the experience.
Fulfillment degree: Aries 2. A man shown a hidden portal to the underworld. (Omega Symbol). Having come so far and finding ourselves still intact, we are now ready for the journey into our depths.
Old stone steps descending into darkness. (Chandra Symbol). Through cleansing and clearing our souls we have turned ourselves into a light that is now ready to journey into the deepest darkness.
The air within the soap bubble was from a faraway time, a glorious age of beauty and wonder. The magician had instructed the air that its presence was needed elsewhere, to seed a far off place with new magic. The air understood. For vast distances of time and space the colors on the bubble enjoyed their swirling, protecting the magic air, until they found that lost place needing their breath, and the bubble popped.
Aries 14. A snake wiggling out of its own skin. Transforming/Responsible)
(Degree Angel: MEBAHEL (May-ba-HEL) Farewell to Arms, Truth, Liberty, and Justice)
When life becomes to confining to you you push against it until you experience a breakthrough. You will not let anything thwart your growth. This molting you do is quite automatic, and you will only cause severe suffering to yourself if you resist it. Growth is exhilarating, especially when you support yourself in the process of it.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “An apple tree – many rotten apples on the ground around it.” The rotten apples and the snake’s dead skin are what has been cast off. The skin is a remnant of the growth and expansion of wisdom, which will always be generating new skins as it evolves. The rotten apples manifest the luxurious abundance of the creative urge as it relentlessly casts its seeds of inspiration into the physical world.
Pleiadian Symbol: A conversation interrupted by the writhings of a snake.
Azoth Symbol: Wise people discussing the best way to instrument changes in society.
Seed degree: Virgo 7. Music, fading into silence, re-emerges as color.(Omega Symbol). The music of light invites us to shed more darkness and emerge ever brighter.
A pie thrown in someone’s face. (Chandra Symbol). Letting go of taking yourself too seriously you are now ready to drop your creativity onto the world, allowing it to be picked up, eaten, or its seeds to sprout, or, by rotting away to provide the soil of being with even more richness.
Fulfillment degree: Taurus 2. A saint’s bones have turned to pure gold. (Omega Symbol). Shedding more and more skins of darkness we finally arrive at the golden core.
Wilting flowers form a graceful pattern in a vase. (Chandra Symbol). Witnessing the profusion of nature we come to see that the manifestations of beauty are endless, and encompass even the realms of death and dying..
A gray snake feels a burning, an itching that seems to coil around it. Giving in to the writhing dance within it feels itself begin to escape itself, as it emerges from itself, coming out covered in glorious, iridescent color and shimmering pattern.
And when the colors eventually die once again, as it is in the nature of colors to do, and the snake is engulfed in grayness once more, new colors will awaken with it and again push themselves to the surface.
Aries 15. An hourglass in which the sand has become stuck. Transforming/Inspired
(Degree Angel: HARIEL (HA-ree-EL) Long-Range Vision, Purification)
You are able to transcend time – that is, to get beyond its compulsions. This allows you go go deeply into whatever calls to your attention, and to experience the timelessness of the moment. By looking beyond time you can bring the feeling and vibration of eternity into whatever you do.
Herein lies the power of waiting, the power of stopping to make space for the light to enter.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A man with pointed ears.” This is another way of stopping the flow of time – by an acute listening. The points of the ears point to the sky and can hear angelic voices and cosmic messages coming into the earth plane. The messages are timeless. The ears hear into the heart of the universe, into the message that is deep within the message.
Pleidian Symbol: An old magician forming golems out of clay.
Azoth Symbol: The search for dark matter.
Seed degree: Virgo 19. A procession of dancers and musicians joyously moving through a forest. (Omega Symbol).The procession of joy follows its route into timelessness.
A fire breathing dragon the size of a mouse. (Chandra Symbol). Tiny things of tremendous significance which exhale the sparks of spiritual possibilities – these are what the ears are craving to hear.
Fulfillment degree: Gemini 2. The Golden Fleece hanging in a garden. (Omega Symbol). Transcending time, we discover the magical treasure we’ve been seeking.
A collection of large dried leaves, each one bearing an inscription. (Chandra Symbol). Deeply, sharply listening we hear the book of nature and read, with our instinct, its multifarious messages.
It would appear that the sand in the hourglass is hesitating, but of course we know that sand does not hesitate. It is time that hesitates, and the sand only waits for time. Usually time is regular in its passage, for it desires to support our expectations, but for the dreamer who has given up many expectations, time rather enjoys postponing gravity and enjoying the freedom of uncertainty.
