Deuteronomy 14:1. To be considered a “Son of God” you need to have a soul form the highest level or achieve such state through the correction process, which could take many life times.
The benefit of that state is the ability to get out of slavery, which is the main attribute of this existence.
Rabbi Shimon was such person. He could control reality at will. He even passed away at his own time and by the request of the creator. A good son can ask whatever he wishes and the father will fulfil it.
The angel of death couldn’t have access to Rabbi Shimon. The Zohar bring a story when Rabbi Shimon order the angel of death to leave one of his students.
As we go down below that level, we have greater distance from the Light. The good news is that through the Zohar we can connect to the soul of Rabbi Shimon and come closer to his protection powers.
The more we are with the light, the better we have control over our lives and lessen the influence of negativity.
Most of us are slaves to the system with less freedom to choose our path.
Astrology can help us finding the right path but only by increasing the light in and out of us we can improve our lives.
