(Degree Angel: PAHALIAH (pa-HA-lee-YAH) Victory Over Addictions, Redemption)
TITLE: FREEDOM FROM THE PAST AND ABILITY TO ACTUALIZE THE FUTURE
You are able to place your consciousness beyond the usual conditioning of the world and to stay intensely focused on whatever goals you adopt. Other may sometimes see you as without feeling and disconnected, when if fact, you are super connected, but not necessarily to the expectations of others.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A bunch of iron keys.” The independence of the man with no navel is similar to the bunch of iron keys, which provide a way to go beyond any barred doors one may find. This degree is always capable of finding a way through – “no navel” signifies a self-reliance that can always find within itself a way to overcome any obstacle. The degree feels a persistent urge to reach some particular goal, and will always be able to find a way to do so through tremendous patience and resourcefulness.
Pleiadian Symbol: A man standing on the top of an invisible mountain. Trust in the elevating power of the hidden forces of the universe.
Azoth Symbol: Before crossing the desert a man is buying camels. Enlisting help and support in the furthering of one’s spiritual journey.
Seed degree: Aries 16. To rejuvenate himself, a man is partially buried in the earth. (Omega Symbol). Returning to the womb of the earth mother, our connectedness becomes total, rather than concentrated into a singularity.
Three sculptured birds: one black marble, one white marble, one solid gold. (Chandra Symbol). To find freedom on all levels leads to the opening of many possibilities.
Fulfillment degree: Scorpio 8. A woman in a hot bath. Outside snow is falling. (Omega Symbol). Becoming completely empowered to nurture ourselves, we find emotional warmth even in the midst of outer coldness.
A retarded man with white hair. He has an angelic countenance. (Chandra Symbol). Moving through one door after another – one trial after another – we are released more and more from the limits of mind and logic, our thoughts become clear, and we find ourselves connected to the helping forces of the universe.
They called navels “the scar of history.” When he tried to remember his own history he followed it back into a grayness where it evaporated like mist disappearing in sunlight.
He wanted to feel connected, and feared that if he had come from nowhere he might also go nowhere, if he hadn’t been born, might never die.
“Peace,” whispered the Great Mother, “I have only temporarily stolen your history, so that you might have time to grow strong enough in your individuality to have it back.”
Special camels are sold by an alchemist who lives in Zuratan, a small village on the edge of the Gobar desert. These camels are highly prized, but not expensive, as the alchemist who breeds them only desires that they be sold to the right person, and refuses many who come to buy one.
These camels bear a special property: After journeying a short way into the desert a trickle of waters appears to the left side of them, and as they forge onward becomes a clear brook gurgling over stones and stretching into the distance. If the traveler looks behind him he sees that the brook disappears as he continues to walk. In this way both travelers and camels may cross the desert with ample water as well as a path which leads them where they are going, a path which dries up once the destination is reached.
