Capricorn 9. A woman thinks of all the things that have died and rotted to make the soil. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Responsible

(Degree Angel: ANAUEL (a-NA-oo-EL) Appreciation, Perception of Unity)


This degree realizes the richness of life and seems to know how to enrich anything in which its involved. Its helps others to be more aware of the constant presence of change in life, and hence a need to completely savor and enjoy the moment. It tunes people into the tremendous abundance around them, and helps them to tap it.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A woman washes a man’s feet and dries them with her hair.” The rational (male) mind is supported here by the feminine. Feet signify understanding, here purified and cleansed of all darkness by the great mother. So often objectivity manifests in a cold, detached way that actually separates itself from life. This degree is trying to bring it back into wholeness by always injecting everything with love and forgiveness, with being soft and giving everyone as many breaks as they need. And it realizes that playing a secondary role is, yes, humbling, but if it is for a higher purpose, never demeaning.

Pleiadian Symbol: A winged fairy hovering and playing a tiny harp.

Azoth Symbol: A man alone for many months is absorbed in writing a novel.

Seed degree: Cancer. 16A woman dressed in immaculately clean rags. (Omega Symbol). Purified and beyond the limitations of style, we see the vastness of the cycles of life and death.A skull carved of quartz crystal. (Chandra Symbol). An utterly clear mind then becomes capable of perceiving the panoply of nature.

Fulfillment degree: Gemini 24. A man who heals water, be it in lakes, rivers, the ocean, or a glass. (Omega Symbol). When the masculine is healed it provides a basis for clearing and re-energizing all emotions, thereby healing the feminine.

A nude man with a tail. (Chandra Symbol). The man whose feet have been purified is now able to get back in touch with his animal nature.


A famous female alchemist of Aab, Maara Mirir, was said to be able to take a handful of soil in her hand and by holding it to her ear hear the voices of years gone by, and the voices of plants that had dwelled in the meadows and gardens of former times. In this way she learned many unsuspected healing properties of plants, who she said, had grown wise enough to tell her of their powers by laying in the earth for so many years.
