- Attributes - Wise-compassion
- Source - Constellation of the Dragon, via Libra.
- Method - Twelve cosmic Identifications.
- Hierarchy - The sixth.
- Symbol - A green dragon issuing from the center of a blazing sun. Behind the
sun and over-topping it can be seen two pillars on either side of a closed door.
- Quality gained - Luminosity.
