Seeing beyond the opaqueness and density of the physical realm we encounter a spiritual level replete with free-form, flowing beauty. This degree’s imagination is fueled by that realm. The most difficult thing for it to do is to find a way to express this in physical form. The necessity for a creative outlet is very great, and the only way to find this is through experimentation.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Dinosaur bones discovered while digging.” This degree unearths what is ancient. It is the revealer of a greater reality. This often happens by accident – it just seems to be magnetized to hidden things which can can greatly expand our understanding of our own past and of who we really are. It can be inspired to do wonderful things with these findings, but is far more likely to be able to make the most of these treasures if it can let go of all former assumptions and allow its finer sensitivities to track with the flowering of new paradigms.

Pleiadian Symbol: Dancers sweating and stripping off clothes as they work out.

Azoth Symbol: A witch giving someone an apple from her orchard which is imbued with health-enhancing properties.

Seed degree: Libra 10. A ginseng root in the shape of a human being. (Omega Symbol). The desire to completely heal the self carries us eventually into the realization that the key to doing so lies in our imagination and our ability to work with the Light.

A hand with perfectly manicured long nails. (Chandra Symbol). To pursue the desire for personal beauty leads us eventually to see the deep and ancient motives behind this.

Fulfillment degree: Capricorn 24. Although he is afraid of heights, a man continues to ascend a flight of invisible stairs. (Omega Symbol). To become in full contact with our imagination gives us a faith that supports us in reaching toward the divine.

Stalactites and stalagmites almost grown together. (Chandra Symbol). To dig deeply into the past eventually leads to realizingthe connection between our heights and our depths.


A certain Alchemist of Taruz had to power to make both his face and his skull invisible. He used this ability to frequently test the progress of his students, for when he allowed them to see in his brain they witnessed there the everchanging colors of his thoughts as they moved across his brain like the Aurora Borealis in the night sky, which are the thoughts of God.

After a time of observing he then asked them to tell him what they saw. He found that the more advanced of his disciples were able to translate the colors they observed into words that more or less accurately described what he had been thinking. The most advanced ones had the power to translate his inner colors spontaneously into the most beautiful and mysterious poetry.
