Gemini 12. A single tree growing many different types of fruits. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Sensitive

(Degree Angel: Mumiah (MOO-mee-YAH) Spiritual Cleansing, Endings and Rebirth)


A single idea may be expressed in many different ways, and if we can’t understand it in one context, it will come back to us in another form until we get it. You have this ability to mutate your form of expression giving people multiple options and angles from which to understand what you’re saying, until it be comes completely vivid.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Many huge urns filled with wheat.” Great abundance appears in both of these symbols. The only real danger here is to undervalue what is possessed, to take it to lightly, to not use it, or to misuse it. Otherwise, this is a degree of tremendous prosperity that may be shared with the world. What is needed is to recognize this, and then find a way to distribute it to those in need.

Pleiadian Symbol: An imp is causing all sorts of misprints in a book. The disarranging of order so as to open up new possibilities and greater awareness.

Azoth Symbol: People in a space ship on the verge of beginning a journey to another world. A constant readiness for new and great adventures. Utter openness to new experiences and the ability to impart that quality to others.

Seed degree: Leo 15. An ancient text, long kept secret, is revealed to the public. (Omega Symbol). New revelations give birth to a wide array of different interpretations and possibilities.

A woman with many different colored rings on her fingers. (Chandra Symbol). Feeding the spirit with beauty and exalted energy imbues us with the consciousness of prosperity, which draws to us that which will satisfy our physical needs.

Fulfillment degree: Pisces 6. Crystals deep in the earth aware of the sunshine above. (Omega symbol). Realizing that wisdom may manifest in so many different forms, our spirit senses the spiritual light hidden by the illusions of the physical world.

An Inca chief wearing many emeralds. (Chandra Symbol). Realizing how much we have to give we recognize our own importance (beyond our ego’s selfish need to feel important) and for the sake of helping others focus on forming the connections with people that will allow us to share what we have. (Note: Emerald is the gem of the planet Mercury in Indian astrology, Mercury being the planet of communication and connection).


Trees are, by nature sleepers,and in the sleep of their long lives they dream leaves and fruits which they shed as they fall back asleep, only to wake again to more dreams of leafing and fruition.

Except for the tree that woke and realized that in waking it might consciously dream whatever it desired. And so it began to dream of everything it could conceive. It became, itself, in its waking, the essence of all dreams. And such is how it became the meeting place of the dreams of all trees.

Azoth Oracle

In a meadow near his round tower Irnad built a space ship out of branches, twine, and bolts of colored silk. On a summer afternoon he invited certain carefully selected people to go with him on a voyage to a far world.

After drinks and conversation in which he was careful to answer none of the participants questions as to where they were going, he had them all lie down on pillows in the space ship and began reading to them from Farquarus’ “Complete Explication,” an exceedingly dry book of reasoning and detailed, laborious logic that ran on for nearly a thousand pages.

Soon all his voyagers were asleep. “For,” he said to himself, “it is known by the wise that there is no sleeping potion more powerful than abstract reasoning. Logic is, most certainly, the mind’s best pain killer.”

He then slept also, and toward sunset, when they all awoke, he bid them farewell, and to enjoy their new land.

Of course, at first the participants all thought it a joke – Irnad was a notorious prankster. Until they looked around them and felt a strange and subtle difference everywhere. Colors seemed clearer, problems that had worried them seemed to have disappeared. Familiar friends and family seemed newly met, though they had lost no memory of them. Their senses had come alive and through them they awoke to the aliveness of the world around them.

Many burned with a desire to go on one of Irnad’s voyages, and he embarked on many more of them, though no one ever knew when they would occur, or who he would ask to join him.
