this was supposed to be the answer on previous topic: here the current one.

1) In the formula, only I and I_z is used (and the ladder operators). So (technically) only explicitly one axis is used.

2) Two diagonal elements have the same value. So same value in those two directions, therefore symmetry on the axis perpendicular to those two directions.
