Gemini 25. A healer who uses only smiles to perform all his healings. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Inspired

(Degree Angel: YEZALEL (YAY-za-LEL) Heaven on Earth, Fidelity, Loyalty, and Allegiance)


Ones attitude is actually a seed from which grows the whole of one’s karma. Even at your most disattuned you are aware, no matter how faintly, of the light that is always trying to come through. Your bliss comes from being able to always give in to what is happening, thereby letting divine love do its work.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A cave in deep ocean waters.” The cave is a great abyss, dark and hidden, and maybe full of dangers. It is what we fear inside ourselves – the unknown. But the smile is the ultimate protector, the perfect guardian angel that keeps us from harm. The 25th degree of all signs is tremendously cosmic – the problem with these degrees is always how to bring down their fabulous energy into this material world. This is the sign of Gemini, the sign of communication, and here we find that the ultimate vehicle of communication is THE SMILE. The smile brings light into the depths, and through this light we illuminate and express the divine consciousness within.

Pleiadian Symbol: An old, twisted tree, leafless, on which flowers of many colors are blooming. Ancient wisdom reborn in ever new and variegated forms. That which has become old and worn out blossoming into new life.

Azoth Symbol: The stars of a galaxy feeling the exhilaration of their combined movement. Empathy with the cosmic forces of the universe.

Seed degree: Capricorn 21. As a woman moves down a passageway, many hands reach out to touch her. (Omega Symbol). When we move forward, we find so much reaching out to help us, and come eventually to realize that though the expressions of love are many and complex, they all grow from a single, simple root.

A stately old house in a ruined condition. (Chandra Symbol). Outer forms, as they gradually decay and pass away can potentially reveal the deep inner truths that have hidden within them.

Fulfillment degree: Aries 8. A man journeying far north to the mouth of a river. (Omega Symbol). To share more and more the energy of love takes us to our source.

A lizard dressed in blue satin and pointed shoes. (Chandra Symbol). Delving deeply into the cave in the ocean we find a primal creative energy that imparts to us an almost inexpressible understanding of the mysteries of life.


Emotions are of the element of water, and smiles are light which shines through the waters of our being.  The healer Tomias Robard searched and found within himself the heart of the smile, and learned to circulate this through the bodies of his patients.  He saw where there waters had dried up, where others of them had frozen, become stagnant, or burdened with shadows and through he light of his smiling brought waters to parched inner lands, melted with the heat of his smile frozen waters, cleaned stagnation by smiling waters into fountains and lightened the burden of shadows.

He explained that smiles are made by lips from which come forth words and into with go food to feed the body, as words may feed the spirit of others.  And that the smile, in its crescent form, is the shape of the New Moon, whose crescent points upward as a cup, inviting the light from above to descend into it.

Azoth Oracle

For of stars it may be said that they all have a deep love for each other, and suffer not the isolation that our eyes see as we gaze at them. For stars, though vastly separated feel an affectionate closeness to each other and rejoice in following each others paths.

From this we learn that love is of a circular nature and always moving, and that the path of light, though seeming to be straight, always follows the path of an infinite circle that embraces with joy the illusion of darkness which conceals the spiritual light, for it is such illusion that allows the physical light to be witnessed.
