TITLE: QUEST FOR SOURCE, or ACUTE AWARENESS
You are inherently a truth seeker, always looking for the spiritual energies at work under all life’s experiences. You’re willing to go along with whatever life has to offer, because you sense the force of evolution at work everywhere, as it guides us toward higher consciousness. You need to seek the privacy in which you can journey into your inner space and re-attune to your spiritual power.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A lizard dressed in blue satin and pointed shoes.” A salamander – a fire elemental – spirit of creativity dressed in the color of Sagittarius, color of the sky’s far spaces. The feet signify understanding, the shoes pointed, meaning the understanding is acute, penetrating. North is the direction of spirit and journeying to the north we encounter this creative spirit and commune with its wisdom. This is the seed degree of Scorpio.
Pleiadian Symbol: A flock of winged serpents cavorting in the air. The free and untrammeled play of various aspects of wisdom interacting with each other.
Azoth Symbol: Palms bending and twisting in a hurricane. Rooted in the truth of one’s being, and holding fast and flexible amidst the roar of outer life and incessant surging of the mind.
Seed degree: Gemini 8. A healer who uses only smiles to perform all his healings. (Omega Symbol). The simplicity of love guides us to the spiritual source of life.
A cave in deep ocean waters. (Chandra Symbol). Through a profound exploration of our own depths we encounter the spirit of cosmic and eternal fire.
Fulfillment degree: Scorpio 1. A man suspended in the air watches everything from a great height. (Omega Symbol). Returning to source we drink the waters of expanded vision.
A tunnel through a mountain. (Chandra Symbol). Pure, clear understanding, sharp and penetrating, pierces through all illusions and obstructions.
Water looks to collect – seeks wholeness – the sea, where it may rest for awhile, immersed in itself, before it ascends, becomes clouds, takes up tenancy in pools, mirrors itself in drops, being separate and yet not. The man wonders, when he arrives at the mouth of the river, what will it have to say?
To the far south of Peth the palm trees on the Cipafic sea are known to suddenly begin to writhe violently, their fronds whipping about even in still air. It is from this that inhabitants know a hurricane is coming soon, and also know that they have ample time to prepare for it. For this reason they are known as the Psychic Palms of Aab, and by some as Guardians Against the Anger of Air and Waters.
