Aquarius 4. After a long journey the source of a sacred river is found. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Responsible

(Degee Angel: HAKAMIAH (he-KE-mee-YAH) Dumping Depression, Loyalty)


This degree has the power to trace anything backwards to understand its source. Other people who engage in this process often don’t go far enough, but this degree is intent on origins, and will continually look under anything found to seek its cause and source of support. The highest result of this is the complete cleaning out of negative karmas by clearing them at the root.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Many fireflies at dusk.” The dark may be vast and engulfing, but the light is always there to help us let go of doubt and uncertainty and know we have the power to overcome any and all challenges. This degree is about little, seemingly insignificant things serving as lights, and more importantly about the way our light calls to the light of others, creating mutual enhancement and encouragement and thereb helping us all to always remember who we really are.

Pleiadian Symbol: People lined up to receive hugs from a holy woman. Direct, simple and intimate transmission of the spiritual light.

Azoth Symbol: The crying of gulls over the ocean. The soul’s free and spontaneous expression of its primal aliveness. Pure, vibrant and joyful connecting.

Seed degree: Taurus 17. A book patiently waiting to spill forth its vast and profound knowledge. (Omega Symbol). The book’s knowledge flowing forth is the sacred river, whose source we eventually find is ourselves.

A pomegranate broken open. (Chandra Symbol). The possibilities we perceive are seeds of potential that light our path – like fireflies.

Fulfillment degree: Cancer 26. Sounds of laughter coming from many different directions in the forest. (Omega Symbol). To contact the source of the sacred river causes nature to rejoice.

Pastry makers. (Chandra Symbol). The beauty of the fireflies’ tiny lights in darkness urges us to create smalls beauties and joys with which to enhance and light the lives of others.


Although it has only been reported by one person, all believe that the Iridar River flows from an ancient silver chalice which sits in a small cave in the forests far in the south of Aab.  The one person who saw this with his own eyes is the alchemist Serapis, whose writings have a reputation as pure and untarnished as the Iridar chalice itself.

When he asked of the spirits how the chalice came to be he was told that the goddess Quanaan placed it there so that her tears for all suffering beings might find a place of entry into the world, which would explain the curious fact that the Iridar is the only known saltwater river.
