(Degree Angel: Lehahiah (Lay-HA-hee-YAH) Forget Thyself, Obedience)
Title: PROFOUND DESIRE FOR COMMUNICATION
You have a knack for finding the way to wonderful places, but will anyone follow you there? Your creativity is of a very specialized sort – don’t let yourself be frustrated if you get negative responses from others concerning it. Do what you do best, and eventually your work will find its ideal place in the scheme of things.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A man talking in his sleep.” The linguist is attempting to be utterly objective about communicating. The man talking in his sleep is being totally subjective. These extremes of communication styles are vehicles through which the spiritual light is attempting to shine. The question is, will anyone understand what you have to say? And the answer is, everybody will understand something different, some will understand completely, others not at all. But no matter what, you have to say what you have to say, so say it – the light works in mysterious ways.
Being the 34th degree of the zodiac, this degree is ruled by Gemini (34=3+4=7 and 7=Gemini in the Kabbalah system), hence the emphasis on communication.
Pleiadian Symbol:In a shadowy place in a forest an iridescent fire arises from the ground. The witnessing of subtle revelations hiding in many obscure and unlooked for places.
Azoth Symbol: A bard sings a haunting lay. Channeling messages which deeply affect the subconscious of others.
Seed degree: Taurus 8. A man lost in a tiny forest. (Omega Symbol). From the intimate exploration of our own psyche a new language is born — one perfectly suited to express our uniqueness.
A very complicated hedge maze. (Chandra Symbol). Exploring the many interwoven corridors of the self we are eventually impelled to give voice to what is deep within us.
Fulfillment degree: Capricorn 3. A reference book on poisons. (Omega Symbol).
Clear communication allows the objectification of toxicity to occur.
A woman sniffing pepper and sneezing violently. (Chandra Symbol). The subconscious is allowed to speak, creating a cathartic purging.
To perfectly communicate — is it possible? The linguist wonders. She decides that if words could only be more specific, then communication could attain a perfect clarity. And so she’s making up words, names for clouds she’s just seen, dictionaries of various names for colors — depending on the time of day, season and weather conditions in which they are viewed, and thousands of words for emotions which all contain an elaborate sequencing of vowells, but no consonants, as well as words invented solely for the purpose of more specifically defining other words.
Eventually she feels she has too many words, and decides to give them away as presents.
People begin receiving anonymous gifts of cornucopias spilling forth endless words, and word pictures big as gargantuan trees bursting with leaves covered with poems that wither, and falling, rot into fertile silences.
Phiarus says the reverberations of songs never die but linger in the air eternally, and even though they become fainter and fainter they also move outward into space. And even though our scientists tell us that sound may not be propagated through a vacuum they are yet to learn this secret: that as songs leave the atmosphere of earth they transmute into a light invisible to the eyes but known by the ears that can in fact move through space, until, eventually even the stars hear them, ingest them, and turning them into light reflect them back.
This is why many of the oldest songs have such a profound effect on the psyche, for when they are sung again the echoes of their former playing are awakened, which carry back into the present the voices of those who in all times sang them.
