Aries 1. A treasure map tattooed on someone’s back.

At night he sleeps in moonlight, and laying on his stomach dreams he journeys across the vastness of his own back, exploring the map tattooed there. But where is the X that marks the spot? He finds all the rivers, mountains, forests and other features the tattoo artist has drawn there, but where is the treasure hidden?  Closing his eyes, he listens. In moonlight he hears the treasure, steadily beating.

Azoth Oracle

Colored sheet lightning flickering in the depths of an opal.

Opal is a most wet stone, being an imprisonment of water in crystal, captured by lightning, which over many centuries enters the ground repeatedly, forcing dew into opal’s dungeon.

Or, as others believe, opal is excrement of salamanders, those beings of fire whose shyness impels to hide in caves.

Serapis says both be true: That salamanders consume lightning which enters the ground, and by ingesting it excrete rainbows, which, having been turned into stone (called by the wise “Shit of Salamander”), are hence by this process rendered enduring, becoming the delight of the Gods.


Omega Symbol: A treasure map tattooed on someone’s back. Strong instincts can guide you to wherever you need to go. Follow your impulses and doesn’t try to figure anything out or justify yourself. Keep disengaging from involvements that slow you down so that you may be free to follow your own unique path.

Pleiadian Symbol: A mermaid and an octopus lovingly embracing.  Love and acceptance toward whatever one encounters in the depths of one’s subconscious Ability to experience an emotional rapport with those who are very unlike oneself.

Chandra Symbol: A man repairing and extending a stone wall in the spring. The Omega symbol is about a PLACE where a treasure is located. The Chandra is about the creating of a PLACE by building a wall around it, which is a means of defining that place and maybe enlarging it (the stone wall is being extended). The SELF is the treasure, and the way to the SELF is embedded in the self itself.

CONFRONTATION WITH THE MATERIAL WORLD is what is needed for the newborn self to affirm a place in which to be and to grow and to discover the inner treasure.

Azoth Symbol: Colored sheet lightning flickering in the depths of an opal.  Intuitively sense all the vast potentials lurking within the limits of the physical realm.
