You realize that there is an attitude that creates burdens, and an attitude of lightness which sees nothing as a weight on the self. You have the ability to access your spiritual self directly and immediately, and to experience a great infusion of energy and elevation from doing so. This automatically is felt and shared by others – to whatever extent they are able to pick up on it.

The Chandra symbol for this degree is “An anatomist delivers a lecture on the kidneys.” One of the most primal fears is the fear of falling. In Chinese medicine the negative emotion most associated with the kidneys is fear. When we overcome the fear of falling we are crowned king of our physical self for having mastered our fear. The anatomist explores fear in all its many forms, and his exhaustive study eventually exhausts all fear, which, without energy, dies away – as all illusions must and will in the end.

Pleiadian Symbol: White birds swimming on a pond seem to glow in the twilight.  Spiritual truths becoming clear when one achieves a softness and gentleness of focus.

Azoth Symbol: A sage concocts a powerful elixir which heals people suffering from a plague.  Creative resourcefulness in getting to the hidden root of problems.

Seed degree: Pisces 19. A man tilling a field of flax. (Omega Symbol). As we cultivate ways of clearly expressing our spiritual selves, we become able to deeply understand the most life supporting ways of interacting with others.

Palm trees laden with dates. (Chandra Symbol). Through realizing the gifts one carries one comes into an understanding of the essence of the life force. Also, awareness of inner abundance overcomes fear

Fulfillment degree: Virgo 3. A little girl hugs a giant quartz crystal larger than she. (Omega Symbol). Letting ourselves rise above the limitations of the physical realm we are able to innocently embrace the potential of clear rapport with this and other realms.

A woman doing delicate embroidery. (Chandra Symbol). Coming into an understanding of the dynamic interweavings of all relationships, we grow more careful and patient in creating the reality we desire.


At night he would put on the crown and float through the forest. It was an excellent way to avoid fallen logs. The crown’s clear yellow gems sparkled faintly green in the bluish moonlight.

And then one night as he was floating through the forest he realized that he’d forgotten to put on the crown. He supposed that finally the secret kingdom had accepted him as ruler, so that he no longer needed official jewelry.

Azoth Oracle

The disease created great lethargy.  The victims’ dreams were always the same:  they wandered a forest, or desert or labyrinth, but could find no way out.  They always dreamed of twilight, and of pathless seas of trees, or dunes, or corridors which grew wider, or narrower and turned in eery direction, but never ended.

Irnad summoned an angel who gave him a golden ball which unraveled into a thread.  It was the way out.  But how to deliver it to the sufferers?

One night a crow came to him, offering to help, so he gave the crow the end of the thread, and the crow flew away, placing it on the moon which drew the whole of the cord into itself.

On the Moon the cord frayed into millions of strands which rained down on the sufferers  like filaments of golden light, which they grasped and followed.

When asked why the plague had been visited on the sufferers, Irnad said, “To bring out the mazes the people had always been wandering without knowing it, to bring them up into dreams where they could be known.  But they got stuck there.  The gold thread showed the way, but not until the Moon had fermented it.”
