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.  Freely moving with others into a higher spiritual state.

Azoth Symbol: A man falling asleep feels his fears melting away.  Giving in to the reality of one’s safety in the universe.

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.

Azoth Oracle

There is a demon who lives in the foothills of the Iridar Mountains and who takes the form of a cave.  He usually looks like a rather small one into which a traveler wanders, but as he explores further he finds many passageways which draw him onward deeper and deeper into chambers both vast and small and endless branching tunnels.

At last, fearing that he might not be able to find his way back he tries to return, but the cave is mutable and continually changes his shape.  Eventually the travellers loses his light and find himself wandering endlessly in the dark, which delights this deamon for he feeds on fear.

Some unlucky travelers eventually die of fright in the unlimited bowels of this demon.  The lucky one’s exhaust themselves and falling into a deep sleep wake to find themselves in a meadow far from the Iridar Mountains.

There are ones who have gone to look for this cave, but it has never been found.  The cave is little interested in such people, who have a deficit of fear and prefers, rather,to appear at will to the anxious and apprehensive, who it considers rich morsels to satisfy its appetites.

Irnad has said of this cave, “It is merely a nothing which we fill with our something.”
