(Degree Angel: LELAHEL (LAY-la-HEL) Dream State, Light of Understanding)
TITLE: REACHING UPWARDS IN A FOCUSED AND CERTAIN MANNER
This degree is always willing to go with what works, to suspend judgment, and to try out new ways of doing things. In essence, it has a deeply powerful faith, and knowledge that there is so much more to the world than there appears to be. This open attitude, if focused on, can cause it to find much success and advancement, which might be worldly, spiritual, or both.
The Chandra symbol (Descendant) for this degree is “Stalactites and stalagmites almost grown together.” The angels reach down to us, we reach up to them. What comes from above is accumulated below to the extent we can take it in, until there is a meeting. This degree has great faith, and a willingness to keep going, even when the journey seems to be so slow that progress seems imperceptible. Conflicts can be resolved by the two sides gradually drawing together, gradually sharing in small ways, until finally there is a coming together in a deep and genuine point of contact.
Pleiadian Symbol (Ascendant): A woman being interviewed for a position as priestess.
Azoth Symbol (Midheaven): A man giving beggars money and other gifts. The recycling of energy to those who need it and from a consciousness of wealth and generosity.
Seed degree: Capricorn 16.
An invisible skull reveals a living human brain, its surface flickering with rainbows. (Omega Symbol). When we are able to allow our powers of imagination and visualization to energize and free our mind we develop the faith needed to reach toward higher states of being.
Dinosaur bones discovered while digging. (Chandra Symbol). Contacting the extremely remote aspects of our own past and the power that resides there we gradually heal all inner schisms and are able to manifest as a whole person.
Fulfillment degree: Virgo 25. A man crawling on his hands and knees through dust keeps finding jewels and other valuable items. (Omega Symbol). When we have found the faith to reach toward the heights of understanding, we come to see that all that is there is mirrored in the little and seemingly insignificant things of this world.
A gold ring in the form of a snake swallowing its own tail. (Chandra Symbol). Through gradually working through the challenges of this world we come to see that we are self-sufficient, and that we have all we need right inside of us.
There are at least 12 invisible Towers in the forests and fields of Peth. I say “at least,” for there are many others rumored to exist which are yet to be found.
A certain man named Barthus had decided to conquer his fear of heights by ascending one of the tallest of these invisible edifices. As he ascended its invisible steps higher and higher he grew more and more terrified, shaking so badly that when he reached the top he lost his footing and fell off the pinnacle. Much to his shock he floated as gently to the ground as the feather of a bird.
A few others, who were bold and daring enough, jumped from the tower to see if they might also be gently borne down like Barthus, and they were.
Over time it was found that repeated engagement in this activity gave one the ability to hear the secrets of earth spirits by putting his ear to the ground, and thus the hiding places of many treasures and rare minerals were discovered by those fearless, patient and persistent enough to trust the tower.
