The 18th Cursed degree

The 18th cursed degree in Astrology

Posted on 

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.

Oracle

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.

Oracle

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/

The Secrets of the Zodiac Degrees! With World Famous Astrologer Nikola Stojanovic introduced by Astro Lada. 

Seven to do’s because it’s Saturn Retrograde

It may take a while till we feel the effects of the Lunar eclipse. But there is a lot still happening.

The SUN conjoined MERCURY March 23 after the eclipse.

This sparks  new energy and new ideas. The eclipse was very close to the Zero degree ARIES world point. This is a true turning point. Ultimately new thinking caps and new bright ideas will emerge.

March 24  Mercury @ 5+ DEGREES ARIES trines Mars in Sagittarius @ 3:45 pm PDT/ 6:45 pm EDT

Under a void-of- course Moon. This is an upbeat pursuit of truth, adventure, travelling, optimism and justice. Be daring, be bold, be passionate. 

It’s GOOD FRIDAY March 25

The archetypal story of an anointed Higher consciousness being, called Yeshua or Jesus, knows he must die and sacrifice himself for a Higher Purpose, traditionally to the Great Mother, as a martyr to bring higher consciousness to the world. The story of death and rebirth is a terribly ancient one, since humans first became conscious. All life is a continuous unending cycle of birth death and transformation.  That is under Saturn’s realm.  Easter in the Bible was tied into the Jewish Festival of Passover which is based on a lunar calendar. Usually the two coincide but this year Passover is very late and begins April 22 on a Full Moon. 

The real meaning of EASTER or OESTRE is an ancient pagan fertility festival tied to Spring.

ISHTAR, ASTARTE , TARA, OESTRE ancient Goddesses of fertility were honored with symbols of hares, sacred to the Moon, the lunar monthly fertility counter, and rabbits which are very fertile. The symbols of eggs and rabbits were taken on as an overlay on ancient festivals by the Christians. Anyone who studied pagan symbolism can easily see this. 

SATURN TURNS RETROGRADE  March 25 @ 16+ SAGITTARIUS, 3:00 am PDT/ 6:00 am EDT/ 10:00 a.m. UT

LORD OF TIME STANDSTILL and begins to slowly turn the Karmic  wheel backwards. 

wheel of Time, Tara Greene Buddhist

The GREAT WHEEL OF TIME BUDDHIST interpretation

WHAT’s IT ALL ABOUT?

We are going into DEJA VU time, as the Great wheel of time slows and appears to revolve backwards until August 14th where Saturn will be at 9 degrees 47 minutes of Sagittarius. Lets think back as to where we are headed in that future and where we were. Saturn was last at 9 degrees 47 minutes of Sagittarius on December 20, 2015, think back what you were doing and what you were planning for 2016.

SATURN in SAGITTARIUS is very optimistic, altruistic, honest to a fault, pursues justice, higher  philosophical perspectives, education and relating to exotic and foreign things, persons and travel. Saturn rules the Patriarchy, authority, the old boys network, history. In Sagittarius this is politics.  Expect a total change in the political run for president now over the next few months. Sagittarius reveals the truth. 

JUPITER’s square to  SATURN right now amplifies the more optimistic side and expands Saturn’s usually cynical bitter restricting influence on any sign. This  is positive and pressuring. As Saturn moves slowly backwards it is like going through a wormhole or time tunnel, we get to go back to the past to change the future. 

Saturn Retrograde gives us tine to mature,to work on things. It’s like the necessary time spent to let the dough rise, or setting a bottle of wine away. You cannot rush when something is ready. Use this time wisely to carefully craft your master plan, because all of Saturn’s energy has to do with long term goals, career, commitments, maturity and plans. 

Some commitments may break up now or at least must be reexamined. Honesty is truly the best currency now. 

We will have to go back to the drawing board where all ideas are conceived and nurture tweak and reset them in stone before they can really begin to be birthed next August. 

Saturn in the TAROT is THE DEVIL #15. Ultimately the DEVIL is the material plane. Temptation. EGO. It is ultimately not real. This can be a good time to revisit what your fears are. Are you being governed by your ego? What devils do you project onto others? This is a pretty hot topic now. 

SEVEN TO DO’s while SATURN IS RETROGRADE

1. Revisit all your goals for 2016.

This is important to do now as there are energy shifts coming in the fall. It’s OK to change your plans.

2. Scrap what you are not fully committed to

Only put your energy into long-term goals that you are really into for the long run. Its better to focus on one higher goal.Draw out what your peak looks like, why you want it and what you expect from it.

3. Re-commit your vows, in a relationship or in your career .

This is a good time to remake vows, personal and relationship. Second that emotion. Saturn rules career, redraw a career mandala or where you see yourself in 7, 14 years. 

4. Ask the advise of a mentor or more mature person’s experience. 

This is good to do now. You will be more open to hearing their advice. Also think about your retirement or any long-term distant goals and how to plan for it.

5. Finish up old legal, tax or educational courses. 

Saturn is the tax man, get any old unfinished business done. Immigration, wills or other legal matters of this sort should be finished over the next few months. Finish up the courses already.

6. Honor your father and any male person who helped you

Visit your dad, and honor him whether alive or dead for the karmic lessons he gave you. For some this may be good and for others painful. If there are old childhood wounds this is a good time to let that pain out. Inner child work is very important.  

Tell someone you respect a male teacher, how they helped impact your life It’s important to tell that person how he helped make a difference in your life. Call him, email or meet in person, or send an old-fashioned letter by mail. 

7. Learn to use your time more wisely.

Time is a very precious commodity and it goes faster these days. Manage it wisely.
