Aries 20. Streets littered with many colors of confetti. Manifesting/Inspired

(Degree Angel: PAHALIAH (pa-HA-lee-YAH) Victory Over Addictions, Redemption)


You have the ability to bring a vibration of celebration into all aspects of everyday life. You are communicating to people how to renew themselves and how to blossom out of their set patterns and routines. It is important to not become frustrated if your message sometimes isn’t heard. You are on a different wavelength from other people – many can not embrace the joy and enthusiasm for life that you can. But don’t let this stop you, for people need the exuberant energy you have to offer.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “An empty courtyard.” Before change can happen there must be a place prepared inside so that the new may enter. Celebration is the acknowledgment that something important has occurred and that it should be honored. But once the celebration is over the way is clear for the next step of the journey, blessed with the colors of the recent triumph.

The confetti lying in the streets is about what is over, the empty courtyard is about what is coming, and this degree stands at the cross-roads of that time of renewal, acknowledging the past, open to the future.

Pleidian Symbol: A young girl feeding diamonds to a flock of baby phoenixes.  Nurturing the possibilities of rebirth and transformation.  The colors emanating from the diamonds echo the colors of the confetti in the Omega Symbol.

Azoth Symbol: By intuition a healer chooses the proper remedy.  Giving in utterly to the impulse to achieve wholeness and harmony.

Seed degree: Scorpio 19. An angel kisses a man while he sleeps. (Omega Symbol).
To give free rein to our joy creates an immediate connection with higher beings who wish to communicate their love for us.

A rope going up in the sky. (Chandra Symbol). When we allow ourselves to connect with higher vibrations we find a protected space in which we may be protected from the conflicts of earthly existence.

Fulfillment degree: Scorpio 2. A lighthouse is moved inland. (Omega symbol).
Embracing the joys of life eventually makes one aware of the need to protect the light one has to share with others from destructive influences.

A large, stately bronze horse. (Chandra Symbol). To find our peaceful and protected center apart from the outer world connects us directly to our personal power.


The celebrations were over and cars were running over the colored confetti. The rainbows had been thrown from high buildings, glittering down onto the parade. Now the thousands of pieces strewn everywhere were merging with the rest of the city’s trash and dirt. But even as they were increasingly obliterated, they left behind a residue of joy that all felt, even those who weren’t aware of it.

Azoth Oracle

Irnad said, “People are always looking for remedies to heal them, but remedies look even harder for people.

The problem is, the aspects of people which need to be healed hide themselves, and can sometimes be as elusive as carefully concealed treasures, or the secret tombs of magicians.

And so I, being a healer, am a private detective in the employ of the remedy.  When a patient comes to me it is I who stalk the source of the discord, and, once it’s discovered, the remedy too is always there asleep at its core, and only needs to be awakened.”
