You know how to focus energy, to collect it and pattern it for maximum intensity so that it can become a healing force. You can’t figure out how to do this, you just need to allow your desire to create to manifest, and it will spontaneously occur. There is much latent knowledge you carry within you. Your task is to tune into it and allow it to flow.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “An alchemical text written on parchment.” In this symbol we find formulas for healing and evolution, in the Omega Symbol we find a person who has taken in and become versed in these formulas, so that he might practically employ them. This degree is about understanding the different qualities inherent in different vibrations, together with learning how they combine together. Here is the attempt to understand processes, and then to use that understanding creatively to solve problems and, hopefully, advance the self spiritually. The negative potential here is that the person must keep the Higher Purpose in mind, and not get caught up in mere tricks, or serving the selfishness and greed of the lower self.

Pleiadian Symbol: Rabbits in elegant dress dancing with each other at a masked ball.

Azoth Symbol: A seer has a vision of the Light’s ever-present and all-seeing eye.

Seed degree: Gemini 28. A house which keeps growing bigger and bigger. (Omega Symbol). Seeing the way in which potentials infinitely proliferate, we choose from a vast array of possibilities those energies which we wish to amplify.

A cloud in the shape of a rabbit. (Chandra Symbol). Tuning into the fleeting manifestations of subtle energy forces we attempt to see eternal laws at work behind them, and to find a way to express those laws.

Fulfillment degree: Taurus 9. Bats streaming out of a cave at dusk. (Omega Symbol). Our magical intent draws forth the abundant life of energies dwelling deep inside us.

A talkative woman with tape over her mouth. (Chandra Symbol). We study so deeply and acutely the formulas and laws of existence that we come to a pint of realizing that theories must now be put aside to allow inspiration to arise out of the silence and guide us.


He imagined his talismans as maps which charted the landscapes of desire, miniature worlds whose influence would compel the world around them to move into clearer, higher atmospheres. His geometries became vessels filled with his intent. He chanted into his talismans the names of forces which would bring harmony to the wearer, or the home in which they were hung. Plants, creatures, stones and stars and beings of the lands of twilight gathered round to help him as he worked.

Azoth Oracle

From Ocularis’ “The Way of Gazing”): “The Spiritual light, being everywhere, sees everything, though suffering the illusion of blindness we wander within our lives, knowing not that we perfectly see. This is called the phenomenon of the dark lid, a shadow which lies over the eye, keeping it closed so that it may not see itself.

“Blessings to all those who come to awakening, to the fluttering of that shadowy lid as it opens, for all are coming to see, no matter how long their sleep, or dream of blindness.”
