Taurus 30. Beings from many dimensions attracted to an immense white flame. (Omega Symbol)Transforming/Inspired

(Degree Angel: Mitzrael (MITS-ra-EL) Freedom, Internal Reparation)


You sense a pure, central force radiating through the whole universe, and though you may not conceive of it consciously in these cosmic terms, your attitude communicates the feeling that nothing is by itself important, that everything is important in its highest spiritual context, and that we are all truly one, traveling in the same direction toward the white flame of enlightenment.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Snakes at rest on a rock in the sun.” The highest part of us all is attracted to the spiritual light, just as the snakes collect to enjoy the light and warmth of the sun. Snakes symbolize wisdom, and wisdom, or truth, attracts more wisdom and truth. This degree is indescribably rich, the question is, can the person who has this in their chart accept all this, for the only way to contain it is to let go of limits and surrender to the infinite.

There is an ability here to connect to any and all past lives, for these are what we HAVE (Taurus’ verb is “I have”). As this degree releases itself from all caught and stuck places in these pasts it eventually can come into and share the vast fortune that is the summary of Taurus.

Pleidian Symbol:  Strange exotic birds have gathered at the ruins of an old palace. Mutual acknowledging of the beauty of each individual’s uniqueness and purpose while yet respecting the limitations and values of former states of being.

Azoth Symbol:  A yellow diamond in a setting which depicts both the Sun and Moon. Innate knowledge that the conscious and unconscious, the yin and the yang, combine to form a higher, totally synthesized meaning and purpose.

Seed degree: Pisces 20. A truck stop specializing in Gnostic texts. (Omega Symbol). We break through all barriers that divide separate realities, and enter into a deep, timeless and transcendent sharing of the light with all beings.

A perfect black cube sits alone in the desert. (Chandra Symbol). Sensing our containment and isolation in a non-supportive environment, we transcend it to enter into an interdimensional communication with a vast array of consciousnesses.

Fulfillment degree: Pisces 5. Dyers at work with many vats of different colors. (Omega Symbol). From the pure white flame of spirit we extract the many beautiful vibrations with which to serve all needs and delight the world.

Thousands of gold nuggets glistening at the bottom of a clear stream. (Chandra Symbol). Knowing of the riches that are strewn everywhere along are path, we are able to be at peace and bask in the passing, temporal light.


Do all these beings from far-flung places come to visit the flame because they are cold? Or because they crave its light? Doubtful. More probable is that the flame is a place of meeting, a nexus of clarity, just as white is the meeting place of colors.

See how each being merges with the flame, and then emerges from it clearer and brighter, ready to return to its home.

And see, too, at the top of the flame those sputtering shadows emanating from the tip, like a foreboding gas – I wouldn’t look at those strange colors if I were you – as the flame’s blinding, acidic purity carries on its process of digestion.

Azoth Oracle

Tamara Zinar, being terribly afraid of eclipses had Irnad fashion for her a ring set with a great yellow diamond which he had alchemically imbued with a certain knowledge. For exactly seven days before an eclipse was to occur the diamond’s bright yellow would dull to deeper and deeper shades of gray until it turned black. Immediately after the eclipse occurred the black would begin to become lighter and lighter until it was once again restored to its pristine yellowness. In this way Tamara would know when to hide herself in her apartments, shut all the windows and soothe herself with candles, or put on her blindfold so she might be consoled by her blindness.

I have heard tell of a similar ring made of opal, which during lunar eclipses turns a deep indigo, and also sings faint songs which can be heard if the ring is held closely to the ear. I am not sure who owns this ring, or its whereabouts, but I imagine it was not made for the same purpose as Irnad’s diamond, for who has ever heard of anyone fearing lunar eclipses?
