d16 150 150 John Sandbach

Aries 16. To rejuvenate himself, a man is partially buried in the earth. Manifesting/Experimental

(Degree Angel: HAKAMIAH (he-KE-mee-YAH) Dumping Depression, Loyalty)


You are able to connect to earthly existence in a direct, full manner. When things have become too confusing, complicated, or too lost in realms of speculation and fantasy you know how to reground back into physical reality. Through your intense and periodic reconnection with the physical world you renew yourself and those that you touch.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Three sculptured birds: one black marble, one white marble, one solid gold.” Fullness and completeness of thinking (the Chandra Symbol’s three birds) can only reach its full potency when there is a complete grounding of the mind. To say it another way, contact with the earth realm provides the mind with a laboratory, a place to grow and experiment and to see how thoughts and concepts play out. This is the essence of alchemy – rejuvenation through repeated immersion in the physical (“…buried in the earth”), experiencing consequent cycles of death and rebirth until oneness with the light is attained..

Pleiadian Symbol: The spirits of gems rising out of the ground at dusk.  A deep awakening of creative potentials.  Glorious liberation from confining densities.

Azoth Symbol: Warmth and love spreading both ways from a handshake.  Seemingly casual connection becoming a vehicle for deep love and intimacy.

Seed degree: Libra 1. An apothecary shop in which herbal concoctions and other medicines appear as needed. (Omega Symbol). Realizing many different ways in which all situations can be furthered and harmonized creates in one a desire to apply those ways directly to the physical world.

A group of fat Italian ladies preparing bread. (Chandra Symbol). When we receive the nurturing we need form earth, we are then ready to soar like birds.

Fulfillment degree: Cancer 2. A man with no navel. (Omega Symbol). When one relates to the whole array of earth energies one transcends any specifically limited needs for earth connection.

A bunch of iron keys. (Chandra Symbol). To soar freely and hence expose oneself to the universe at large causes a great array of potentials to open.

  Omega Oracle

With just my arms and head sticking out of the ground I have become a plant. I feel my toes elongating and growing hair roots, my fingers spouting leaves. My eyes are disappearing, in fact, all my features are melting away, becoming the center of a flower. You know, flowers actually do have faces, although they are invisible, for they’re meant to be seen with something other than the eyes.

Azoth Oracle

The great sages Imbar and Aspeth had never met, for they lived a great distance from each other, Imbar in the east and Aspeth in the west.   Both of these sages were known for their warmth and charity, and their devotion to healing through the power of love.  When the two had reached a very great age they were invited to a grand convocation of Wise Ones in Aab, to which both journeyed.

It is said that when they first met each shook the others’ hand and that many who witnessed this touch saw a light emanating from it, a glow full of colors clear as a northern rainbow.

From that moment on both their right hands continued to glow in this manner, and the healing powers of these hands was much magnified and potentized and sought out by those who suffered.

It is due to this event that thereafter both sages were known as “Seer of the Single Hand.”
