The 18th cursed degree in Astrology
Nikola Stojanovic, a famous Serbian Astrologer who just passed away two days ago from Covid-19 apparently, may he RIP said the 18th degree was the “devil or cursed degree” I’ve heard this from other sources too. Note the Sun + Ceres at 18 Aries and Lilith at 18 Taurus on April 8. To find out more about this theory watch video link below.
But in Hebrew the #18 Gematria, using a form of Jewish Numerology, means life. The Hebrew letters that spell CHAI, pronounced High, not Chai like the tea, means Living or wild adds up to 18. I don’t think Mr Stojanovic took this into his account.
Do you have any planets, or angles at 18 degrees? He used the 18 as the degree and didn’t round up as most symbol users do.
Lets see what John Sandback has to say about the 18th degree of ARIES which is read as the 19th degree. But I will include both,
“Aries 18. Sitting in the Lotus posture, a monk’s deceased body is incorruptible. Manifesting/Receptive
(Degree Angel: CALIEL (KA-lee-EL) Fertility, Justice)
You are so able to concentrate on what you’re doing that you can outdo yourself, and through this can open up to new levels of being. You need to be very wary of taking in the advice of others, for something in you knows what it is doing despite your probable inability to explain or justify it. Hanging out between worlds allows you to be a free agent, a go-between, a bringer of light into the realm of darkness.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A jellyfish.” The jellyfish is delicate and vulnerable, unlike the incorruptible flesh of the monk. But what they share is a transparency – literal on the part of the jellyfish, and of a higher, vibrational sort in the monk, who has “seen through” the corruptibility of matter into the shining eternity of the soul, thereby uplifting, refining and perfecting the physical self.
This is not to say that everyone who possesses this degree can do this, but it is to say that this degree brings the awareness of this potential – the ability to know intuitively the nature of matter’s illusion.
Pleiadian Symbol:Deep in the forest Titania’s ancient stone throne covered with moss.
Azoth Symbol: Space aliens inviting some humans to come and see their world.
Seed degree: Libra 25. New words magically appearing in a dictionary. (Omega Symbol). Ever greater and clearer communication carries us into contact with the eternal.
In the midst of a forest, a great circular open area. (Chandra Symbol). A secret space is opened up in which we are protected and can therein become vulnerable and light.
Fulfillment degree: Virgo 2. A table on which many healings have been performed. (Omega Symbol). The transcendence of others provide a groundwork upon which future healings can occur.
A man hanging upside down from a tree. (Chandra Symbol). Finding lightness and subtlety within, we are able to accept our karma and wait patiently for eventual liberation.
For two hundred years he’s been sitting there, on his dais, legs folded, eyes closed, a vague smile on his face. For those who need to be able to see beyond the disintegration of all things, for those who thirst to believe in that realm beyond change. One day he shall suddenly turn to dust, his clothes gently collapsing into a pile. When the legend is ready to be born.
Aries 19. A skeleton dressed in garlands of flowers. Manifesting/Responsible
(Degree Angel: LEUVIAH (LOO-vee-YAH) Dialing God, Expansive Intelligence/Fruition)
You rejoice in change and renewal. You have an immense capacity of making the best of things through your always-fresh approach to experience. You are good at taking old ideas and dressing them up in new attire, and have a refreshing effect on whatever you touch. Your ability to combine practicality with beauty helps to overcome the boredom and dreariness of the world.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Someone performing trephination.” The skull is hard because the brain needs a lot of defending, but any defense system can also become a prison – and so the hardness of the skull needs an opening through which it can connect to a greater reality. Break through the hard crystallized thought forms that we have turned into a wall to defend the brain, and see that death (the skeleton) and life (the flowers) are one, and beautiful.
Pleiadian Symbol: A rug grows larger and larger, sprouting grass, trees, and flowers as it turns into a landscape.
Azoth Symbol: The portrait of a man grows younger and younger.
Seed degree: Scorpio 7. A poem has disappeared from a sheet of paper. All that is left behind is a few iridescent stains. (Omega Symbol). The poem dematerialized reveals by its death the beautiful and refreshing nature of dying.
A small cave located high in the hills and filled with goat dung. (Chandra Symbol). The waste products of old cycles reemerge to fertilize new forms which contain the essence of the old combined with a new vibrancy. This releases the pressure of limited ways of living that has built up within us.
Fulfillment degree: Libra 2. A vast tract of windmills. (Omega Symbol).
To learn to love death and to be thankful for its gifts allows us to embrace and be fully empowered by the breath of life.
An a apprentice medicine man allowing himself to be bitten by a snake (Chandra Symbol). Having made our mind more receptive to new possibilities we let down our defenses and open ourselves to the assimilation of them.
On a spring day a skeleton had become so bored sleeping in a grave that he dug himself out, and finding the cemetery filled with fresh flowers, wove them into garlands and hung them all over his bones, reveling in their beauty. As he was dancing around the cemetery he noticed some mourners who, though they looked his way, seemed not to see him. Their fear of death had made him invisible.”- https://johnsandbach.net/oracle-by-fives/99-omega-chandra-symbols-aries-16-20/
