Taurus 1. To cleanse them, crystals are placed in a stream.(Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Experimental

(Degree Angel: Lecabel (LAY-ca-BEL) Finish what you start, Intellectual Talent)


You’re always table to take a fresh, clean, clear approach to life, reentering into the flow around you once again, as washed of preconceptions as you are able to be. Others need to witness you doing this so they might also learn how to do it. It is such a beautiful, simple approach to life, and laden with such power.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A red garnet ring. The garnets glow.” The word “garnet” means seed. The glowing seed is ready for planting, for grounding, so that what is hidden within it may manifest in the outer. This degree reveals the life force in its pure and simple impulse to grow and unfold – to become freed enough from the past and its preconceptions to be able to enter into a new cycle of growth – to reveal what’s inside.

Pleiadian Symbol: In mountain pines in spring the sound of rushing water.  A freeing up of clear and pure energy.

Azoth Symbol: Melodies from a stringed instrument recall the beauty of ancient times.  Realignment of the emotional body by reminding it of all that is noble and wondrous.

Seed degree: Aries 2. A man shown a hidden portal to the underworld.(Omega Symbol). After saturation in heavy earth frequencies the living waters return us to clarity.

Old stone steps descending into darkness. (Chandra Symbol).
We desend into the darkness to find the hidden fires of life there, waiting for us.

Fulfillment degree: Libra 3. A painting upside-down in a museum. No one notices the mistake. (Omega Symbol). Deeper grounding brings, at first, disorientation — a needed prelude to reorientation.

An inaccurate,imaginative map of the world. (Chandra Symbol). A magic seed of desire planted in the earth grows a tree of imagination that reinvisions everything.


Hands lay crystals on the bed of a stream. Petrified water they are, stones through which light passes, invisible except for edges and fractures. The water flows around and past them, a soft, continuous abrasion polishing to nothingness what is already smooth, the light trickling through them. Silently the still crystals witness the flow as they gradually disappear.

Azoth Oracle

The lute of Chazal had been passed down through generations and was miraculous in that it never needed tuning, but was always in perfect pitch when Reedaar picked it up to play.  This most famous musician of Aab said that he never meant to play melodies on it, but that the lute possessed him, taking over his long white fingers and causing them to bring forth songs that no one could remember ever having heard.

Reedaar said that when he had first met the lute it had told him it was a repository of forgotten melodies which it had gathered from the air, for all air yet reverberates with all the songs it has ever received.  It called Reedar “the Blank One,” and said it had been looking for him for many ages.

“And why do you give me such a name?”  asked Reedar.  “Because,” answered the lute, “you contain with you the emptiness through which you might allow my voice to sing.”

And so Reedar took up the lute and gave back to Aab through his playing all the lost songs which had been stored in the hidden chambers of memory.
