Aries 26. A man sitting at the bottom of a crater. Transforming/Experimental

(Degree Angel: HAAIAH (HA-ee-YAH) Order From Chaos, Political Science and Ambition)


You may often find yourself focusing on something and not knowing why. When this happens, rather than trying to ignore it you need to actually focus on it, for the universe is trying to tell you something. Underneath all the layers of outer distractions exist deeper wells of being which you need to explore.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “The man in the moon smiling.” The crater of the Omega Symbol is in the shape of a cup – it is a place where the earth has received a message from outside its sphere. This degree is acutely receptive, and all it takes to bring it to its highest manifestation is to focus on that which is worthy of being received – that which is nourishing to one’s being. The man in the Moon smiling signifies the alchemy of joy and love, which has the capacity to burn away the dross of whatever is received, leaving in tact the pure food of truth to be taken in as sustenance.

Pleiadian Symbol: Jars of spices and bars of gold and silver heaped in a closet.  The sensing of hidden wealth and resources.

Azoth Symbol: After birth, a group of baby rabbits huddle together sleeping.  The ability to enter into new experiences in a gradual, soft way.

Seed degree: Aquarius 1. Deciding to die, a vampire walks into the sunlight. (Omega Symbol). Giving in to deep cravings for change we find ourselves drawn toward those places in ourselves which need to be healed.

A two-headed calf. (Chandra Symbol). Perceiving the dualistic nature of all values we lighten up emotionally and are more willing to accept the flow of life.

Fulfillment degree: Taurus 3. A woman at a crossroads. She buries something and then prays. (Omega symbol). When we listen intently to the voice of our inner being we are drawn to where we need to be and more and more willing to let the burdens of the past fall away.

A sleepwalker. (Chandra Symbol). At attitude of softness, gentleness and acceptance allows our instincts to direct us to wherever we need to go.


When he looked up there was only sky. The crater’s walls were smooth, like a cup, which made him feel like dregs, like a tea leaf which someone might look down on and read. It was here a meteor had struck the earth. The air was silent, and yet seemed still to faintly reverberate with that long ago celestial violence.

It was peacefully exciting.

Azoth Oracle

In the Museum of Peth three baby rabbits huddles together sleeping.  198 years ago they were born in captivity on a farm in the countryside near the town of Trin.  After birth they nursed their mother for three days, and then falling asleep together, never woke.

In the nearly two centuries they have been in the Museum they have not aged, and appear wonderfully healthy, stirring, sometimes in their sleep or huddling closer together.

When asked if he might explain this mystery Irnad said, “These three rabbits run and play with their mother, but in fields not of our knowing, their physical bodies anchored here like  the roots of a tree in the unseen world of soil so that the leaves and branches beyond might enjoy the wind and sun of another realm.

“In fact, they are the spirits of three fairies who, loving physical bodies have chosen to be in them and stay attached to them here as they wander and explore in other lands.”
