TITLE: JOY AND EXALTATION AS FUEL FOR THE SOUL or PIERCING THE ILLUSION THAT SOME THINGS ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN OTHERS
You are constantly aware of the inherent joy and wonder of life, and want others to always keep that in the forefront of their consciousness as well. Even when life is difficult and chaotic, with no end of troubles in sight, you have a strong knowing that if we can all keep celebrating, eventually we will have more and more reason to do so.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A fire breathing dragon the size of a mouse.” Because all things are equal in the sight of God, there are no such things as details – everything is important. You often feel that certain things are of high significance which most other people deem to be of no consequence. What you need to do is not allow the value judgments of other people to cause you to question or deny your feelings. There is a deeper, spiritual reason why you feel these things to be important, and they need to be attended to in whatever manner you feel would be best.
One of the biggest problems here is that the more one focuses on small things the more one finds of them. And so there is a necessity to always be asking yourself which details are the most important to you, which are calling to you in the loudest and clearest voices.
Pleiadian Symbol: Youths riding the backs of dolphins. Playful connection to the power and wisdom inherent in one’s emotions.
Azoth Symbol: In an old house many rooms that have been shut up for years. The sensing of places within the self that need to be redeemed and retrieved. It is connecting with our joy that allows us to do this.
Seed degree: Scorpio 12. A woman with a collection of rocks shaped like hearts. (Omega symbol). Becoming aware of the different varieties of heaviness weighing down the heart, the healing power of our attention magically transforms into a joy which we feel a deep need to share.
A young man with a frail body, but a beautiful and noble face. (Chandra symbol). As we become more and more deeply identified with our spiritual ideals we are guided to find our own unique way to bring them into manifestation in the physical world.
Fulfillment degree: Aries 15. An hourglass in which the sand has become stuck. (Omega Symbol). The deep and full sharing of joy with others carries us beyond the limitations of time into the blissful realization of eternity.
A man with pointed ears. (Chandra Symbol). Acknowledging the minute, fire-breathing dragon, we learn to listen deeply to the promptings of spirit and the voices of nature.
They leave music behind them as they progress, and the echoes of dances, a celebration rising in the forest, filling the trees with festival. What matters their destination, or if the forest has paths, or that there is no holiday or feast day which they celebrate? They revel, anyway and forever, feeding the forest with their joy.
