(Degree Angel: ACHAIAH (a-KA-hee-YAH) DNA of the Soul, Patience)
TITLE: THE SENSING OF TREASURES HIDDEN EVERYWHERE
You have a strong urge for adventure, and where that adventure will take you can be surprising and completely unforeseen. There can be abrupt changes of direction that you can’t account for, but which you strongly feel the urge to make. Something is calling to you, and you will not be at peace until you give it your attention and follow it wherever it calls.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Strange creatures peeking out from behind trees.” The Golden Fleece is something marvelous, and the strange creatures are something you didn’t expect. This degree connects to the realm of miracles – without even trying to do so. When life is lived without a minimum of expectations, marvelous discoveries can be made. The strange creatures peeking out from behind trees are beings that are usually hidden who are trying to make contact because they sense the kinship and receptivity of this degree. Here are spontaneous and often surprising encounters with the unexpected, and new and unimagined opportunities arising because of them.
Pleiadian Symbol: A book that only allows itself to be opened by certain people. The rejection of side issues and anything else that might divert one in a quest for that which is truly needed and important.
Azoth Symbol: At the tip of Africa a ship is deciding whether to go north or south. The ability to know when to stabilize oneself at one’s present level, and when to seek new and unknown territory.
Seed degree: Scorpio 9. Looking through a microscope, a man sees a woman waving at him. (Omega Symbol). When you notice tinier and tinier things and feel them loving and wanting to connect with you, you find yourself suddenly beholding a treasure you’ve been searching everywhere for.
A hand with six fingers. (Chandra Symbol). Until the moment of enlightenment we aren’t aware that we are holding in our hands the universe’s perfection – but as we catch glimpses of this we tap increasingly into the universal aliveness of everything everywhere.
Fulfillment degree: Libra 7. The Great Wall of China making a huge shadow. (Omega symbol). As we seek the fulfillment of our desires we come to realize the extend and power of the limitations we’ve created for ourselves.
A group of old ladies gossiping excitedly. (Chandra Symbol). Picking up on so many different possibilities lurking everywhere, we exchange information and speculations as they occur to us, hoping to find something that will further our fulfillment.
There it hung, the magic fleece that he’d journeyed so far to obtain and take home with him. Who could say why people wanted such things, why they were so relentlessly compelled to own them? He knew in his heart that the fleece was of another world, and he felt that maybe by possessing it he might somehow form a connection with it through which he could enter that other world. At the same time, though, he knew that such hope was in vain, for that realm was already within him, and to find it he must make an even more perilous journey through the unknown territory of his own being, if he was to ever find the real Fleece of Gold.
But, being weary of searching, and desperate to feel a moment of triumph, he grasped the one in front of him hanging on the tree – the other, illusionary fleece – and shivered as he felt a breeze from the future stir through it as he stole from the garden.
There is an island just off the tip of Africa which is not on any map, and which is visible to only a few, those few being the ones who use Antarctica as a special haven where they go to cleanse and refresh their imagination.
The Alchemists who engage in this special journey to the clinic of Antarctica always stop first at this Island, called Ipenia, where they leave their physical bodies to sleep, and, their astral bodies now ready to embark on other, special ships docked at Ipenia, set out for the Antarctic coast.
It is most exhilarating to feel the fierce winds of Antarctica blowing through one’s astral body, to swim in the cold blue bays, and to journey with no need of food across the white wastes where the only thing that grows is rainbows.
“A most amazing and salubrious excursion,” remarked Irnad. “It’s truly wondrous how a little whiteness washes the world away so that it can come back fresh.”
