(137) Omega/Chandra Symbols: Libra 26 - 30

Phase 42. Revealing the Concealed (Mem Yud Kaf)

Angel: MIKAEL (MI-ka-EL) Political Authority and Order

Libra 26. Down the side of a mountain, a stream cascading for hundreds of feet. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Experimental

(Degree Angel: Iah-hel (EE-a-HEL) Parent – Teacher not Preacher, Desire to Know)

A feeling of inevitability and momentum is here. The person possessing this degree has a relaxed, vital quality that can enliven and refresh everyone. Others may readily get caught up in his enthusiasm and without trying he can be a leader. When he strives to do anything he interrupts his natural flow, and is at his best when being as spontaneous as he can.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A gypsy cart with a campfire nearby.” Home is wherever you make it, and this degree has the capacitiy to be comfortable anywhere. It has a lack of concern with formalities and the complex ways of the world. It is direct in its approach, and relaxed. This makes all living simpler and more direct. When things get out of hand it knows how to scale down and cut back, while maintaining a joy of living. This helps to relax others who come in contact with it, and to focus more on the here and now rather than worrying about the plans and duties of tomorrow. We are all going where we need to go, and the more we acknowledge this, the easier the path becomes, until it is as easy as water falling off a mountain.

Pleiadian Symbol: Above a deep chasm a group of butterflies flying.

Azoth Symbol: At the end of the day bakers giving their bread to the poor.

Seed degree: Aquarius 7. Someone turns back and looks again: the mountain has disappeared. (Omega Symbol). To come into a realization of what is reality and what is our own projections allows us to fully own our energy and express it freely and openly.

A woman burning a book of black magic. (Chandra Symbol). Desiring to rid ourselves of anything which will retard our evolution, we seek out a heart connection with others of like mind which we can carry with us wherever we go.

Fulfillment degree: Taurus 18. Gently, a man caresses a thorn tree. (Omega Symbol). Relaxing and letting our emotions flow, we are eventually refined by them, and become more and more sensitive to the needs of others.

A woman with hundreds of breasts. (Chandra Symbol). When we find our soul group with which we can unite with for the purpose of giving and receiving support, we find that this loving kindness and nurturing extends without boundary to all who need it.

Oracle

(From “Secret Lives of the Elements,” by Rodulus): “It is a mystery that heavy things such as gravity and rocks can create mist, for when water falls it shatters and rises, and where mountains are steep and high water accumulates, searching for a way down to the sea and finding it; for water has two loves, the love of being with itself which it fulfills in merging with the sea, and the love of being in isolation – as close to itself as possible but yet alone, this latter love fulfilled in those microscopic droplets we call clouds and mist.”


Libra 27. A painting that will not dry. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Sensitive

(Degree Angel: Anauel (a-NA-oo-EL) Appreciation, Perception of Unity)

Nothing is set in stone here – everything can be changed. This degree is refreshingly open and can help others to make changes they may have never thought themselves capable of making. They are difficult, though, to pin down, and can frustrate other people sometimes by their lack of definiteness and certainty. Keeping options open and alive is their forte.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A black leopard beneath a full moon.” This degree has an intense awareness of its own emotional needs, and is determined to get them fulfilled. This only becomes negative when the needs it is aware of are not the true, life-sustaining ones, but rather those that fulfill a dysfunctional agenda.

There is a great awareness here of selfishness, both one's own as well as the selfishness of others. How much better to be aware of this than to deny or repress those impulses! If this degree can realize the great spiritual importance of giving to others, and that karmically this is the only way to ultimately gain self-fulfillment, then the tremendous power of desire it has can be harnessed and used to further the evolution of both self and others.

Pleiadian Symbol: Above a city angels waiting for humans to contact them.

Azoth Symbol: Hidden in books are memory chips which contain other books.

Seed degree: Aquarius 19. Suddenly a woman laughs, not knowing why. (Omega Symbol). Knowing that all is capable of change, and that everything is open, we experience a joy and exhileration which is connected to the whole of life rather than necessarily focused on anything specific.

Loud crushing noises as a glacier moves. (Chandra Symbol). The force and intensity of our own emotions awakens us to the need to find a way of fulfilling them.

Fulfillment degree: Gemini 18. A magician gives to the wind messages which are to be delivered. (Omega Symbol). When we realize that everything is open-ended and capable of change, we do what we have to do and say what we have to say, knowing that the message of it will be delivered to wherever it needs to go.

A book with blank pages. (Omega Symbol). When we get in touch with our deepest needs we are able to understand and hence fulfill them, which clears a space in which are creativity can express itself.

Oracle

A painting of a lake by the edge of a forest has hung in the Museum of Peth for 700 years without drying. When we look in the waters of the lake we find clouds that move, and which mirror the clouds in the sky above. We also find on certain days the paint dulling to gray, and at night the canvas becoming almost black, except on those clear nights when the moon has arisen. In winter the painting often grows white with snow, and sometimes, on rare occassions – mainly in spring – travellers are seen journeying through the forest with its trees in full blossom and sometimes stopping to bathe in the lake or drink of its waters, though when viewers of the painting attempt to get the attention of these travellers they seem oblivious to the museum, or the fact that they are only wet paint.

The paint is even known to make faint sounds, such as the movement of wind through branches or the twittering of birds.

The historian Renaldus has obtained some evidence that the painter, Geramo Daz, made the paint from ground gems which he bound with with a curious nectar extracted from the skin of salamanders. Many have tried to duplicate this formula, but have found that the salamander nectar, though creating glowing, shimmering colors will, over a short space of time burn itself out.


Libra 28. A blind piano tuner. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Receptive

(Degree Angel: Mehiel (MAY-hee-EL) Casting Yourself in a Favorable Light, Vivification, invigoration, enlivenment)

This person lives in their own world, and yet what they do can create harmony in the lives of others. They are intent on clarifying what is going on, and on understanding the nature of things. They are very aware of disharmonies in life, and of how they can be resolved. Their knowledge comes from their intuition – their sense of how things “feel” – , and not from objectivity or rationality.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A single white swan swimming through gray mist.” There is an ability here to put others at ease and to keep situations smooth and flowing, an ability to negotiate and to bring conflict closer to resolution. This degree has an instinct for bringing out the best in other people, and for putting them at ease. Like the blind piano tuner it listens carefully, and hearing subtle disharmonies, corrects them by gently modifying the situation until, step by step, everything becomes clearer.

Pleiadian Symbol: Walking on a rainbow people cross a dark ocean.

Azoth Symbol: In a harbor the colossal statue of a goddess.

Seed degree: Pisces 1. At sunset a petrified forest glows with iridescence. (Omega symbol). Having a sensitivity to the many, glowing shades of meaning that are based in timeless truths, we are able to direct our intention toward the creation of harmony.

A field of dandelions. (Chandra Symbol). Empowered by proliferating joy we are able to move through all situations with a gentle, fluid self-assurance.

Fulfillment degree: Cancer 18.
Gnomes creating beautiful and ornate metalwork. (Omega Symbol). When we find ways of positively using our abilities to create harmony we can then tackle with others the arduous tasks of manifesting our ideas in the physical world, in a way that is both beautiful and useful.

A black child playing with a tiger. (Chandra Symbol). Finding true poise and the self-assurance to move gracefully through the uncertainties of life, we find that our intuitiveness and innocence allows us to deal with even the most dangerous of situations.

Oracle

The blind piano tuner Adrianus of Peth was an adept at creative mistuning. If he knew the work which was to be played on a keyboard, he could tune the keys so that they were subtly out of tune in a way that enhanced the sound of the music, making sad, dolorous works so much more deeply sad by the vague inharmonies of the notes, and joyous works so much more joyous by strange disharmonies that kindled a fiery ecstasy in the ears.

It was noted by listeners that even when the same work was played at different times after he had tuned the keyboard the work never sounded the same, nor, he said, could he ever duplicate the same effect. For the Angels of Sound who guided his hands explained to him that they always had new sounds to bring into the world, and had no time to revisit sounds of the past, which might be revisited only through entering the realms of memory.

And so, with each tuning he created new music, but rather than through notes of his own combining, through notes of his own divising.


Libra 29. In a spiritual text, a man searches for hidden codes. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Responsible

(Degree Angel: Damabiah (da-MA-bee-YAH) Fear of God, Fountain of Wisdom)

There's a tremendous ability here to look beyond the surface, and to penetrate the obvious to find new meanings and insights. What is taken for granted by other people is delved into by this person, who may come up with startling new revelations. The question is, will others relate to what is found. Some may, others may scoff at or feel threatened or not understand the new information. This degree needs to just keep looking and not be diverted by others' reactions.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Servants giving a woman a bath.” This degree knows how to take care of others by helping them to rid themselves of whatever is negative, confusing, or burdening. It is always seeking the deeper meaning of everything. Just as through careful analysis the spiritual text of the Omega Symbol reveals its deeper meanings, through a process of purification the woman of the Chandra Symbol (who is, on one level, the female aspect of god which the Kabblah refers to as the Shekinah) is cleansed of whatever is not her true self.

This degree does not mind playing the role of servant if it serves a purpose. It likes to work with others, and is always willing to rethink anything in the hopes of finding a new perspective on situations or revealing new truth.

Pleiadian Symbol: Underground passageways are connecting the people who need to meet.

Azoth Symbol: A column of water spirals up out of the ocean and rains on the surrounding waters.

Seed degree: Pisces 13. A castle so vast no one has ever explored all of it. (Omega Symbol). Realizing the tremendous scope and range of our being we seek to understand the deeper meaning of what lies within.

A woman imprisoned in a high tower. (Chandra Symbol). A feeling of isolation from both others and the physical world in general creates in us the urge to develop helping relationships with people.

Fulfillment degree: Leo 18. A man walks into the pages of a novel. (Omega Symbol). When we look for meaning outside ourselves, we eventually realize that whatever we find is actually a story of our own making.

A rose bush. Many buds, but no flowers. (Chandra Symbol). As we reach out to help others we create many possibilities for flowering, even though we may have to wait to see their results, and even though many of them may never be actualized.

Oracle

At first he added and subtracted words, using the traditional numbers ascribed to each letter. He tried backwards alphabets, lattices and grids and other patterns. Here and there he uncovered secrets, but only small ones, little shards of wisdom that he knew were insignificant compared to the deeper secrets he could feel hiding within the text.

And then one day as he was reading he seemed to lose himself, and as he did he “saw” into the words, actually entered their world and found it not to be something to figure out, but rather a place through which to wander and enjoy the beauty he found there. So he became an animal of that world and drank of its mysterious waters, waters that quenched his thirst more deeply than it had ever been quenched, and ate the fruits of all kinds which he found as he wandered the forests and plains, each different fruit satiating a different hunger within him.

Fulfilled he lay down in the moonlight of this new world and slept.

And even when he returned to his own familiar world, he realized that he was different. He had become a part of the book.


Libra 30. A small pale moon in the afternoon. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Inspired

(Degree Angel: Manakel (MA-na-KEL) Accountability, Knowledge of Good and Evil)

This degree has a tremendous awareness of feelings, both their own and others'. This awareness is subliminal, manifesting as an instinct for reading the needs, desires and fears of others. At its highest this degree manifests a kindness and gentleness which, rather than being generic is intimately tailor-made to soothe and heal each individual person encountered.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A black rooster.” The rooster is black so it can absorb the maximum amount of light from the rising sun. It is also the darkness which greets the light, and which , through contrast, intensifies the knowledge and understanding of the light.

The Moon of the Omega symbol is most usually associated with night, but here we see it in daytime, just as the rooster, which is normally associated with the inception of day is here black, a color associated with night. This degree is about bringing the night into the day and the day into the night, that is, making the unconscious more conscious while allowing unconscious elements to enter into the conscious realm. At its most realized, this can be tremendously enriching, for as this barrier between conscious and unconscious is crossed and recrossed again and again, it wears away – until wholeness is the result.

And so the sign Libra ends by focusing on one of the most important of all relationships – the relationship between who we are – as signified by the conscious self, with who we are becoming – as signified by all those elements in the unconscious yet to be fully integrated into our being.

Pleiadian Symbol: A tiny implant secretly placed in a man's head. It is filled with vast stores of knowledge.

Azoth Symbol: A spaceship preparing to make a jump through a wormhole.

Seed degree: Pisces 25. On top of a high hill, a circle of standing stones. (Omega Symbol). Keeping our conscious focused on higher realities while remaining rooted in the physical causes us to gradually become more and more aware of the plane of emotions and how its energies move.

People and animals frightened during an eclipse. (Chandra Symbol). A sudden disruptions of patterns allows us to become more aware of the new cycles that we are being compelled toward.

Fulfillment degree: Virgo 18. A woman playing the didgeridoo. (Omega Symbol). We find a way to give voice to the music which is inside, and this opens us up to the secrets buried within.

Eyeglasses which cause one to see rainbows. (Chandra Symbol). As we become more aware of the changes that need to happen in our consciousness, we eventually become aware of their great beauty and glorious potential.

Oracle

(From the book “Unseen Marvels Revealled,” by Enar the Vague:) “It is to be remembered that a moon seen in the afternoon radiates moonlight, even though the overbearing rays of the sun intermix with it, rendering this special type of moonlight unseen, at least by the conscious eye. It is this hidden lunar effluvia which the wise refer to as “The Shadowed Light.”

“It is said that such moonlight, mixed with and hidden in sunlight is changed in a way that makes it more readily absorbed by the eyes and taken into the astral body, where over time it may accumulate, forming within certain unseen oceans that remain miraculously hidden even though they are vast.”

(136) Omega/Chandra Symbols: Libra 21 - 25

Phase 41. Self-Esteem (Hay Hay Hay)

Angel: HAHAHEL (HA-ha-HEL) Mission


Libra 21. The sea as still as a mirror. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Experimental
(Degree Angel: Nemamiah (ne-MAM-mee-YAH) Listening to Your Soul, Discernment)

When the mind is stilled, emotional turbulence subsides and the vast depths of the subconscious can be experienced. This degree of Libra can bring other people to a much deeper awareness of every aspect of their consciousness. They impart to the world around them a clarity that is transcendently healing, even if many people can only experience it for moments at a time.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A magician wearing a live snake for a belt.”The snake divides the body unto upper and lower halves which signify spirit and matter. The snake signifies wisdom, hence this image has to do with the interaction of spirit and matter as it happens cyclically – the process of spirit incarnating, losing self awareness, regaining some of it, returning to spirit to assimilate what it has learned, and returning to matter to learn more.

It is the constant turbulence of the phenomenal world that keeps our consciousness shrouded in illusion. This degree has a deep desire to see beyond this turbulence to the still sea of the Omega Symbol. At its best it is able to see all relationships in the context of the evolutionary process, and to tap into the deepest meaning that lies beyond all outer conflict and confusion. In essence, this degree has the power to look beyond surface distortions to glimpse the core meanings of all its connections.

Pleiadian Symbol: A group on the beach watching ships returning laden with treasure.

Azoth Symbol: Beings who survive by changing their form.

Seed degree: Sagittarius 7. A mirror covered with a shroud. (Omega Symbol). Letting go of outer appearances we are able to tune in to the ever present silence in which we perpetually dwell.

Rats with ruby eyes. (Chandra Symbol). When we vividly perceive the overall patterns of existence we find ourselves relating to the world in a creative and passionate manner.

Fulfillment degree: Sagittarius 17. A flame dancing at the top of a man's head. (Omega Symbol). Tuning in to the inner stillness allows a clear vision of our spiritual self to emerge.

A monkey dressed in a brocade coat. (Chandra Symbol). Deeply attuned to our inner wisdom we are able to play and to take on roles that feel like they suit the needs of the moment.

Oracle

The sea has been known sometimes to become completely still, remaining as clear as a mirror even in the presence of wind. This phenomenon seems to arise from the sea itself as a kind of intent which allows starlight to enter it more completely. In fact, some observers have suggested that the sea has a need for starlight as a nutrient and will still itself in this way to fulfill that need. If this be the case, it is most intriguing to wonder what might be the nature and characteristics of a sea starved of starlight. Possibly researchers will one day build a little sea to study the effects on it of starlight deprivation.


22. A man avoiding moonlight. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Sensitive

(Degree Angel: Yeialel (YAY-a-LEL) Letting Go, Mental Force)

This degree knows the profound value of keeping a goal in sight, and of maintaining objectivity without repressing or denying one's feelings. The emotions are respected and allowed be what they are, but can be overcome, ignored or put aside if they become obstructions to what one is trying to accomplish. If one can let go of any and all fears of what the subconscious holds, then the greatest powers of this degree can be accessed.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “An ancient glass vial perfectly preserved.” This vial is protected from time and the elements. To avoid moonlight, as the man doers in the Omega Symbol, is to avoid vulnerability, but to do this not through becoming hard and resistent but through creating a protective aura around oneself within which one may maintain sensitivity and delicacy.

To be protected the vial must have been buried in the ground or in some other way hidden, or valued and handled with care by generations of people. However this protection has occurred, what has come down to us is something beyond current fashions and attitudes, and without modification – meaning without compromise. This degree signifies ways of being that transcend what is passing, and a timeless sensitivity that when shared with others, can reawaken their sensitivity.

Pleiadian Symbol: Butterflies and dragonflies around a fountain splashing in sunlight.

Azoth Symbol: The discovery of old letters which contain a solution to a long-unsolved mystery.

Seed degree: Sagittarius 19. An old abandoned garden, everything under a blanket of ivy. (Omega Symbol). When we allow life to take its course without our intervention we are made more aware of our own emotional needs and are more careful and conscious in the handling of them.

A monstrous sea creature dead, washed up on the beach. (Chandra Symbol). To perceive what secretly lies in our own depths inspires us to preserve and protect those parts of ourselves which are beautiful and valuable.

Fulfillment degree: Capricorn 17. A man stretching slowly and carefully in many different directions. (Omega Symbol). A heightened awareness of our emotional self allows us to see where are stresses are to find ways of alleviating them.

A gold ring baked into a cake. (Chandra Symbol). Honoring and protecting our sensitivity leads us to fortuitous and felicitous discoveries.

Oracle

At night he always stayed inside, in his hut with no windows, and always burned candles. Even so, he could feel, on clear nights, the moonlight bathing his roof and walls, the feeling of it rising inside him and flooding into his eyes, making them cold, so that he had to stare into a candle to warm them.

If only, he thought, he could turn into a shadow, then he might go out into the night and enjoy it, his shadow self absorbing and digesting the moonlight, his blind shadow eyes safe from it. Yes, that's it, he thought, I must become the night, for then I can contain the moon inside me rather than be engulfed by it.


Libra 23. A young boy leading a giant ox. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Receptive

(Degree Angel: Harahel (HA-ra-HEL) Umbilical Cord, Intellectual Richness)

With this degree innocence must lead, and must be allowed to predominate. When there is any problem with advancing, the use of extreme subtlety and gentleness will urge the stuck place to release and hence allow for forward motion. Goodness can find its own way forward as long as it accepts itself and refuses to be distracted by advice from those who are merely projecting their own agendas onto it.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A tremendous boulder hovering over the ocean.” Gravity, in one context of symbolism can signify selfishness – for it draws to itself in compelling manner anything and everything. Here gravity has been transcended, we have overcome the selfish aspect of our emotions, as symbolized by the sea. There is here a wonderful lightness of being, but not the iinsubstantial lightness of smoke, but rather lightness with the weight of a boulder, meaning lightness that is in no way superficial. This degree has the ability to be light and airy while still accessing depth and seriousness. It is a way of relating that goes far beyond the usual and the expected.

Pleiadian Symbol: At dawn an anchorite ringing an ancient bell hanging in a tree.

Azoth Symbol: Rites held under a sacred tree.

Seed degree: Capricorn 1. A man mesmerized as he reads words glowing with light. (Omega Symbol). Tapping in to the power of spiritual truth provides us with great support for dealing gently and innocently with the physical world.

A canopy bed with curtains. (Chandra Symbol). Retreating into the comfort and safety of deep privacy we find that the silence within heals us of all burdens and heaviness.

Fulfillment degree: Aquarius 17. In the distance, a smoldering mountain. (Omega Symbol). When we deal gently with the heaviness and cumbersomeness of life we find, eventually a deep release, and are able to profoundly access creative energy.

An old woman drying herbs. (Chandra Symbol). When we take a gentle, light and non-judgmental approach to reality we find we are able to use the bountiful gifts of nature to our own advantage as well as the advantage of others.

Oracle

(From the “Natura Resplendens” of Timarus:) “The picture of a young boy leading a giant ox down a country road signifies the soul guiding the forces of the physical body. The weight and density of the ox is ponderous, and it is the nature of the ox to be stubborn, resistive and unmoving. But it perceives the sweetness and gentleness of the boy as a glowing light which it loves and is willing to follow wherever it may lead. And so the wise tell us to love our bodies, and I add to their saying by exhorting you to be cherishing also of the love that your body has for you.”


Libra 24. Gemstones buried in the ground in the pattern of the constellation Orion. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Responsible

(Degree Angel: Mitzrael (MITS-ra-EL) Freedom, Internal Reparation)

This degree has the ability to bring harmony to any and all situations. An inner guidance is at work here, even if it isn't consciously recognized. What cannot be accomplished quickly or directly can be covertly urged in many different ways, which can eventually break through blockages in relationship. Nothing here happens fast, but given time it can happen in a full, complete way.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A Chameleon with moving pictures appearing on its back.” The chameleon symbolizes the fire elementals known as salamanders. This degree has the ability to relate to anything and everything in every way possible. At it highest it is a universal healer, and can turn everything into a medicine simply by reflecting it and thereby heightening the self-awareness of others. There is a great lack of stability here, but the question is, is stability always something to be desired? When stability is let go of then the forces of creativity and change are allowed to come in and transmute situation.

The Omega Symbol of this degree alludes to the fact that there is a hidden quality to this degree, and just as the gemstones are hidden through being buried, the chameleon disappears beneath what it reflects.

Pleiadian Symbol: Out of a cocoon more and more butterflies emerging.

Azoth Symbol: A table of the movements of invisible planets.

Seed degree: Capricorn 13. Singing and dancing in a desert oasis. (Omega Symbol). When we strive to create joy even in the most barren of environments we find that doing so puts us in touch automatically with higher beings who wish to help us.

A very old wrinkled brown paper sack. (Chandra Symbol). Using what we have to the fullest we grow so flexible that we can be in effortlessw rapport with the world around us.

Fulfillment degree: Pisces 17. Getting on his hands and knees, a man uses a piece of white chalk to draw a circle around himself. (Omega Symbol). When we connect with higher beings we draw a magic circle around ourselves in which we stay centered.

A kangaroo and her baby, who looks out from the mother's pouch. (Chandra Symbol). Staying in sympathetic rapport with the environment around us allows us to see what needs nurturing, and to offer it our support and protection.

Oracle

A unique clarity of vision allows him to ascend a magic tower and by looking down at the earth through a special telescope of his own making to view gems and other sparkling objects buried in the ground at a distance of several miles all around him. From ancient times they called this region the Star Fields, the reason for the name long forgotten, until he rediscovered it.

Mapping the gems he realizes that the tower is located at the center of Orion's heart, the stars of the mythical hunter above mirrored in the earth below.

Mighty Orion, who had wished to kill all the wild animals of the earth. But Gaia, their mother, being desirous of protecting her brood, sent him the Scorpion.


Libra 25. New words magically appearing in the dictionary. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Inspired

(Degree Angel: Umabel (OO-ma-BEL) Water, Affinity and Friendship)

This degree enlarges awareness, and makes way for new ideas to be introduced into a milieu in a smooth way, so that people experience a minimum of discomfort that might otherwise accrue from the process of change. In all relationships new points of connection can appear which can enrich interaction immeasurably. Everyone's power to communicate is stretched and expanded, which increasingly opens up more possibilities to be explored.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “In the midst of a forest, a great circular open area.” This is a place to hide, to commune secretly with others, and to be protected as this happens. This degree has the power of touching everyone it meets in an intimate and ineffable way that is often subliminal and unsuspected. The words appearing in the dictionary of the Omega Symbol are new ones which we need to communicate new ideas, enhancing the depth of our interaction with others.

This degree is all about finding a space in which to connect, and has the ability to do this swiftly and instinctively – to just be there where the other person is in intimate rapport, offering escape and relief from the world's narrow focus. It is through going to this place of deep communion and then returning that we are rejuvenated and hence able to deal with our own world with greater clarity and perspective.

Pleiadian Symbol: Writing keeps disappearing faster than it can be read.

Azoth Symbol: One who has lost his sense of direction consults an oracle.

Seed degree: Capricorn 25. During a ritual, a living woman is wrapped like an Egyptian mummy. (Omega Symbol). When we allow ourselves to be reborn, we find that our new self needs a new means of communication.

A woman wearing a mask made out of butterfly wings. (Chandra Symbol). When we allow our identity to become permeated with beauty we find we are able to enter with others into a secret place of deep intimacy.

Fulfillment degree: Aries 18. Sitting in the Lotus posture, a monk's deceased body is incorruptible. (Omega Symbol). When we transcend the cycles of birth and death we open to a limitless realm of communication with the divine that happens via an infinite language.

A jellyfish. (Chandra Symbol). When we feel deep inside ourselves that we are protected, we are then able to become completely vulnerable and therefore completely receptive to the spiritual light.

Oracle

Some of these new words when pronounced correctly would leave strange tastes on the tongue, or cause birds to sing or dogs to bark in response. Others caused sudden lapses of memory so that everything looked like something being seen for the first time, all the pronouncer's senses having been disencumbered from the past.

It was frequently found that certain people would find a new word and fall hopelessly in love with it, walking around as if in a state of trance and whispering their new found word over and over.

This is the phenomena which in time came to be called “The Poetic Conspiracy.”

(135) Omega/Chandra symbols: Libra 16 - 20

Phase 40. Speaking the Right Words (Yud Yud Zayin)

Angel: YEIAZEL (YAY-ah-ZEL) Divine Consolation and Comfort


Libra 16. After many revisions, a poem is thrown away. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Experimental

(Degree Angel: Imamiah (ee-MA-mee-Yah) Passion, Expiation of Errors)

All seeming failures are experiments that provide a basis for future success. This degree is intent on communicating its deepest feelings, and willing to come at this from many different angles. What is of greatest importance here is ones attitude: non-attachment will protect against frustration, and if patience is maintained, much can be learned from all attempts to express oneself. The result will be empowered communication.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A woman: The lower half of her body is a serpent.” This degree is focused on allowing its deep instinctive impulses to manifest. It craves to live life with the whole of itself, rather than denying the primitive aspects of its being. It feels a deep connection to nature, and knows that the forces of nature working through it must be given expression, for they are bound to express themselves eventually – all efforts to repress them being ultimately doomed to failure.

And, as the image of the Omega Symbol shows, this expression is not always easy. The poet of this symbol must sometimes acknowledge that a particular experiment has failed, and rather than settling for producing something that is deficient in life energy, it is often best to give up and make a fresh start, in the hopes that through this the magic will come forth, and the inner serpent wisdom will find its way into the world through the conduit of words.

Pleiadian Symbol: At the shore a flight of stairs disappearing into the water.

Azoth Symbol: Wind Gods directing a cloud dance.

Seed degree:Libra 7. The Great Wall of China making a huge shadow. (Omega Symbol) The limitations we have set up for ourselves become a basis for letting go of those creative experiments which we decide to be unsuccessful.

A group of old ladies gossiping excitedly. (Chandra Symbol). Mutual stimulation through communication sensitizes us to an awareness of our primal nature.

Fulfillment degree: Cancer 17. A man's shadow moving independently of him. (Omega Symbol). Whatever in life we reject always comes back to us in another form so that we may integrate its energy into our being.

A woman working busily at a spinning wheel. (Chandra Symbol). Attuning ourselves to our primal nature provides us with energy that can fuel creative endeavors.

Oracle

Words appear and disappear in the poem, and as they do the poem is always a different one. The changing poem becomes a trickle of poems which flows out of the realm of all possible ones. And like most poems the poems evaporate as they appear, until finally, abandoned by every word they subside, some of them, possibly, appearing to the dreaming ear occasionally as a vague, scented mist.


Libra 17. The unwrapping of a mummy. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Sensitive

(Degree Angel: Nanael (NA-na-El) No Agenda, Spiritual Communication)

What has been long closed can be re-opened by this degree. What has been hidden can be revealed. It is always possible to penetrate the surface and go deeper. The result can be a new perspective on the past, which can give one a deeper perspective on present situations. To do this, though, may require the overcoming of taboos, as well as a slow, gradual approach.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A very bored woman who is listening but falling asleep.” Consciousness is like the wrappings of the mummy – it contains and confines the dream self. Dreams have a life of their own, and are intent on living it, and when any focus we try to maintain is too denying of dreams, they eventually blur the edges, loosen the moorings and undermine our logic and objectivity so that they may find room in which to grow and unfold.

This degree is about automatically and instinctively moving toward those places here what was lost and what needs to be healed and reintegrated into the self is waiting for redemption. All relationships have a way of magnetizing to themselves what they need for the sake of evolution, and this degree has an instinctive knowing of how to give in to this.

Pleiadian Symbol: A man who has the ability to transfer information simply by touching someone.

Azoth Symbol: A woman guiding someone else through the realms of dream.

Seed degree: Libra 19. An innovative dancer performing a strange ballet. (Omega Symbol). Allowing the self to move freely uncovers that which is hidden in the self.

Young boys picking and eating cherries off a tree. (Chandra Symbol). The joy of living leads us to reject those involvements which hold no real interest for us.

Fulfillment degree: Leo 17. A giant squid sleeping in the ocean depths. (Omega Symbol). Uncovering that which is hidden in ourselves leads to the deep realization of how very unique we are.

Elegant black women sitting on a porch and fanning themselves (Omega Symbol). The rejection of meaningless and uninteresting experience assists us in uncovering our own unique beauty.

Oracle

Someone turns over in her sleep, feeling her lifetime of long ago as halfway around the world they unwrap the one that was her.

We've left bodies everywhere, most of them only a skull or a bone now, or a speck of dust the wind blows in our face.

But this body was special. They had prepared it to live through eternity. In her sleep she sighs for her former self, and it, well, it is smiling, and has been for a long time.


Libra 18. Waking in the night, a man feels an earthquake. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Receptive

(Degree Angel Name: Nithael (NIT-ha-EL) The Death of Death, Rejuvenation and Eternal Youth)

The force of evolution will inevitably induce the release of any illusions which stand in its way. When these releases come, the extent to which we benefit from them depends on our reactions to them. If we can flow with them and allow their force to loosen and clear whatever in us we are ready to let go of, we will receive maximum benefit from their healing potential. This degree acutely senses change and knows how to subtly foster it.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A woman carefully counting the beans in a jar.” Through this simple act of quantification this degree seeks a sign, a portent that manifests in the numerological significance in the number of beans. This is one of the simplest and homeliest of all the symbols, but it contains more than what appears on the surface. For the beans have a limited number, and yet planted and allowed to grow and produce through an indefinite and potentially infinite number of cycles they are unlimited. And so this degree is about perceiving the infinite within the seemingly limited reality around oneself, and this simple act of perception actually fosters the infinite's healing force.

In both the Omega and Chandra symbols of this degree very little action is taken on the part of the people involved. In the Omega it is a mere witnessing, in the Chandra it is only the act of counting. The minimization of DOING here magnifies the potency of BEING and witnessing, which subtly enhances and supports the forces of evolution.

Pleiadian Symbol: Lost children are found many years later. They haven't aged.

Azoth Symbol: In he ruins of an ancient city an undiscovered passageway into an immense network of caves.

Seed degree: Scorpio 1. A man suspended in the air watches everything from a great height. (Omega Symbol). Being able to elevate ourselves above everyday experience so that we may gain a clearer perspective on life, we are able to feel those energies at work in the depths of ourselves.

A tunnel through a mountain. (Chandra Symbol). Persistently finding a way through that which obstructs us, we learn to read the portents and signs that are everywhere around us.

Fulfillment degree: Virgo 17. A scientist discovers the secret of time travel. (Omega Symbol). The instabilities of life are finally perceived as means of overcoming seemingly adamant limitations.

An old bald woman talking to her dog. (Chandra Symbol). Finding significance everywhere we look we are willing to let go of logic and rationality, so that we are allowed free communion with our instincts.

Oracle

What he thought was an inner trembling turned out to be an outer trembling. The earth was shivvering as if cold, or as if it had had a vague, unpleasant dream.

Abruptly the quivvering subsided.

Falling back asleep he thought for a moment of tidal waves, of interrupted waterfalls, of rivers changing their course, of stones succumbing to gravity. Below him he felt the earth thinking of stars. This is what it always did to calm itself.





Libra 19. An innovative dancer performing a strange ballet. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Responsible
(Degree Angel: Mebahiah (me-BA-hee-YAH) Thought Into Action, Intellectual Lucidity)

This degree is aware of the potentials that lie within itself and all of us, and strives to find ways of expressing these that go beyond words. The regularization and standardization of expression can weaken its impact, but when new forms of it are found it can wake the being up to a startling and vivid realization of the pure essence of what is being expressed.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Young boys picking and eating cherries off a tree.” In both these symbols fun is being had, but this degree signifies much more than just having fun. The cherries are nourishing, and the dance is allowing the release of pent up energies that clear and refresh the being. This is a Libra degree of Libra and so carries the quality of Libra doubled. It is also the 17th time a degree sub-ruled by Libra has occurred, 17 being the number of Venus. And so here is a pure and beautiful relating just for the sake of relating that touches us in delightful ways that creates an unwinding of energies which have restricted us, and a reconnection to the inner child.

Pleiadian Symbol: Gypsies holding secret rites at a spring deep in a cave.

Azoth Symbol: A glowing wreath of golden laurel leaves.

Seed degree: Scorpio 13. An acupuncturist who activates points simply by holding a needle above them. (Omega Symbol). Using our intent to move energy opens up new and exciting possibilities of communication.

Someone tells a joke and no one laughs. (Chandra Symbol). When one form of fun doesn't seem to catch on, we find other forms that people can more readily relate to.

Fulfillment degree: Libra 17. The unwrapping of a mummy. (Omega Symbol). Allowing ourselves free, creative, and expressive movement, we unravel the obstructions of our pain body

A very bored woman who is listening but falling asleep. (Chandra Symbol). Staying attuned to that which is simply fun and enjoyable assists us in the rejecting of all meaningless involvements.

Oracle

A dance choreographed for eyeballs, and fingers, and the muscles which cause the hair to stand on end. Jagged, spastic movements help to break the ice and loosen old concepts. It includes glances, running down mountains, and the herding of scarves through wind. Inwardly the troupe of blood corpuscles help to give it a sense of flow, and return. At the end the heart claps wildly.


Libra 20. In a lush, dark forest a unicorn prancing. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Inspired

(Degree Angel: Poyel (poi-YEL) Dispelling Anger, Fortune and Support)

A magic purity that lives in its own hidden realm is felt by anyone who contacts this degree. The perception of truth is clarified and deepened and the wonder of the universe is accessed. How enriching this is, even though the one enriched may not be aware of the source of this eternal, mystical energy. The only goal is to let it be its wonderful self as much as you can.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A man with a single horn coming out of his forehead.” This is a Scorpio sub-ruled degree, the horn being like the stinger of the scorpion. The horn is located on the 6th chakra on the forehead, a place where the force of the imagination and intuition are focused. We might think of this degree as signifying the power of the imagination, and the truth that whatever our inner vision projects we eventually manifest – and will inevitably share with others.

Imagination can be a very passive thing, at worst falling prey to any negative thought forms it takes in. And so this degree has to be careful to maintain the purity that is symbolized by the unicorn, for the force of its imagination will most definitely have a powerful effect on others, for good or for ill, all depending on where the focus is placed.

Pleiadian Symbol: People are learning just by being in close physical proximity to a great teacher.

Azoth Symbol: A jester, clowns, and musicians entertaining revelers.

Seed degree: Scorpio 25. A composer of simple melodies. (Omega Symbol). Allowing the creative spirit to give direct and spontaneous voice to its songs carries one into the realm of pure spirit, where truth dances.

A doctor experimenting on himself with new drugs. (Chandra Symbol). A willingness to experiment and to embark on new adventures can open one up to the power of one's intuition.

Fulfillment degree: Scorpio 17. Empty rooms with perfect walls and floors. (Omega Symbol). Attuning deeply to the truth found within provides us with a space in which to freely live and grow, and helps us to appreciate the transformations happening to us.

The mountain abode of a hermit. (Chandra Symbol). When we tune in to the power of our intuitive vision we find ourselves vibrationally removed from the chaos and static of the world.

Oracle

A white unicorn is made no grayer by the deepest of forest shadows. There is a part of green that is always asleep in the densest of forests and it is here that the unicorn loves to cavort, here where it can prance by the light of its own brightness. A dance that wards off eyes, but is seen by any heart that wanders deeply enough into the forest.

(134) Omega/Chandra Symbols: Libra 11 - 15

Phase 39. Diamond in the Rough (Resh Hey Ayin)

Angel: REHAEL (RAY-ha-EL) Filial Submission


11. In a Tibetan monastery, hundreds of candles burning. (Omega Symbol)Transforming/Experimental

(Degree Angel: Asaliah (a-SA-lee-YAH) Global Transformation, Contemplation)

In the darkest of passages through life there is kept burning the lights of helping influences, if we can only maintain our contact with them. You are always aware, somewhere in your being, that where you put your attention is the key to moving beyond the illusion of physical reality. You sense that where you place your focus is what can ultimately change everything.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Tea leaves that form a pentagram.”
The tea leaves have settled after the tea has been consumed, leaving a pentagram. This is a meaningful coincidence. This degree is about perceiving order and finding meaning in the seemingly random occurrences of life. These meaningful coincidences are a way of connecting with the divine, as are the candles of the Omega Symbol. To gain the most from this degree you need to be aware of these signs as they come to you, and be sensitive to your intuition and instincts, so as to tune in to the spiritual forces that are in so many ways making themselves known.

The pentagram signifies the life force, harmony, and health – organizing forces always there and always wanting to imprint themselves on our lives. There is only one spiritual light, but it manifests in many forms, as signified by the hundreds of candles of the Omega Symbol.

Pleiadian Symbol: A holy man lecturing to a group of mountains.

Azoth Symbol: Men meditating as they walk repeatedly around the walls of an ancient city.

Seed degree: Leo 7. The barking of a dog echoes across a moonlit landscape. (Omega Symbol). The free and uninhibited expression of feeling is focused, through intent, as a vehicle for bringing the spiritual light into the physical world.

A very weak cup of tea. (Chandra Symbol). Perception of the subtleties of the world tunes in to significant signs and portents.

Fulfillment degree: Aquarius 16. Cliffs hundreds of feet high that stretch for many miles along a shoreline. (Omega Symbol).
A concentrated focus on positive energy lifts us above the turmoils of the world so that w may experience a deeper understanding of the conflicts at work in this world.

Ground up gemstones to be used as medicine. (Chandra Symbol). Perceiving the harmonies at work beneath all of nature, we take on the arduous task of assimilating their energy.

Oracle

In the center of each candle flame an enlightened being sits, spine aligned to the black wick as they feel the flame drawing the fuel into itself where it turns into light. Outside, the moon hangs so still and clear that if you look up to it and gaze steadily you may see in great detail the vast seas of dust laying there, far beyond the reaches of any wind.


Libra 12. A man gathering seeds from a white morning glory. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Sensitive


Relationships, like everything else, are subject to entropy – are always winding (Degree Angel: Mihael (MIH-a-EL) Unity, Fertility, Fruitfulness)
down and dying away. You have a way of being able to keep relationships going by rekindling them, by finding new ways of relating, new ways of generating connection. It is your dharma to be one who maintains and rebirths relationships in their ever-changing cycles of growth.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “The burning of a bough of sage.”
The forces of fire release the healing forces of the earth into the air. The sage smoke purifies the aura and the atmosphere. The morning glories of the Omega Symbol signify waking up, soul enlivenment, and their white color signifies a clearing that makes way for a new beginning.

At worst this degree signifies being caught in stagnating relationships that do not further one or enrich one's life, because they are stuck in old patterns. The Omega Symbol is not “White morning glories,” but “A man gathering SEEDS from a white morning glory.” The man is preparing for the future growth of the morning glories, just as whoever is burning the bough of sage in the Chandra Symbol is preparing the space receiving the sage smoke for whatever is going to happen next. And so if you want change in your relationships, you must prepare for that change, clear away the old energies which are no longer necessary, so that a space is then made for renewal and a new cycle of growth.

Pleiadian Symbol:Black butterflies emerging from a cave and becoming brilliantly colored as they enter the light.

Azoth Symbol: The Moon Goddess, leaving no footprints, walks across the Moon.

Seed degree: Leo 19. A painting is cleaned, revealing colors of otherworldly beauty. (Omega symbol). Becoming more acutely aware of the beauty of the world around us, we accumulate the power to keep our consciousness turned to the highest and clearest messages from spirit.

A hummingbird feeding at a trumpet vine. (Chandra Symbol). As we keep our world free of negative energies and influences, we can see more and more clearly what it is, specifically, that we need.

Fulfillment degree: Pisces 16. A troll living under a bridge. (Omega Symbol).
When we focus on the highest and purest, we are inevitably confronted with changes we need to make, and those energies which stand in the way of us making them.

A peaceful child on a narrow ledge that overlooks a precipice. (Chandra Symbol).
Dispersing discordant influences sets up a force field of protection around us.

Oracle

(From the Botanica Obscura of Lucidus:). . . For it is known of the wise that various and sundry wandering spirits and elementals will often come to live in the funnels of morning glories, especially those of the white variety, their blooms providing a kind of haven or refuge, as they are most receptive to and collect a pure and fine energy from the sky, which those that inhabit the flowers find both delectable and nourishing.


Libra 13. As he matures, a man’s paintings grow simpler and simpler. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Receptive

(Degree Angel: Vehuel (Vay-hoo-EL) Happiness, Elevation, Grandeur)

You’re trying to communicate something very definite, though you may not know exactly what it is. Or, even if you do, it may not be capable of being summed up in a few words. If you keep trying to say what’s in your mind you will find over time that what you wish to say will come forth from you with increasing clarity. It’s a manner of enjoying the effort without trying too hard.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Men and women in white towels in a steam bath talking and sweating profusely.”
The man of the Omega Symbol has cleared out everything superficial in his paintings, just as the people of the Chandra Symbol are clearing their bodies of impurities and their minds of whatever is burdening them. This degree has a beautiful way of being at once diplomatic – a Libra quality – while yet direct, clear, open, and fresh. It imbues the Libran charm with the freshness and vitality of Aries. We might call this degree “healing through sharing.”

Pleiadian Symbol: Children watching sylphs floating through the air.

Azoth Symbol: On a winter day a maid has arisen to prepare a house for others' awakening.

Seed degree: Virgo 1. Late at night, someone comes home and slowly ascends the stairs. (Omega Symbol). Becoming clearer and clearer in our expression impels us to turn within so as to experience more deeply the energies at work in our consciousness.

A volcano erupting at night. (Chandra Symbol). As we release what it is inside us and find encouragement in the outside world for doing this, we finally a reach a point of deep, spontaneous clearing.

Fulfillment degree: Aries 17. A man is riding a horse north as he searches for the Kingdom of the Fairies. (Omega Symbol). Clearing away all that is extraneous, we come, eventually, to the realm of magic.

A bodiless head asleep on the breach. (Chandra Symbol). Sharing in a cathartic way with others carries us, eventually, into a deep, comtemplative state.

Oracle

A castle by a lake and the dark shadows of each leaf shifting under summer clouds. This is not simple, said the people, these paintings are complicated. Who is in the castle? And who is that man asleep by the lake? Look more closely, said the painter, and you will see through the castle walls, into the very denizens that live there, and you will dream the dreams of the man asleep by the lake if you will only look more closely. Gaze into my simplicity.


Libra 14. A storm raging in Antarctica. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Responsible

(Degree Angel: Daniel (DA-nee-EL) Enough is Never Enough, Eloquence)

You tap deeply into the stuck places of both yourself and other people. You can pinpoint what is wrong in an extremely acute way, and can see how dysfunctions grow and proliferate. At your best you are able to just let what you see play itself out, and without having to do much in an outer way knowing that your caring observation of all this is will actually bring healing energy to the situation.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A Chariot pulled by four elephants.” This image has a slow, stately quality which is seemingly the diametric opposite of its corresponding Omega Symbol, which is fierce and harsh. Antarctica is at the extreme bottom of our globe, and signifies the deep subconscious, as well as our spiritual foundation. Tremendous forces are always at work here. It is not a place that is welcoming to the body, but it IS a place full of the beauty of nature and hence welcoming to the mind and imagination.

The chariot of the Chandra Symbol is not getting any place fast, but it most certainly is traveling steadily and patiently. The nice thing about going so slow is that you miss very little and have time to enjoy the passing scenery. Impatience will not make the chariot move faster, just as there is no way to turn back the storm raging in Antarctica. Why try? Just be with it all – there is a potent alchemy in doing just that.

Pleiadian Symbol: In bright sunlight an empty street and and a shadow disappearing around a corner.

Azoth Symbol: By sound an energy therapist mends a broken leg.

Seed degree: Virgo 13. A meteorite with the edges worn smooth. (Omega Symbol).
Having learned how to deal with the world in a soft, gentle manner, we are able to confront the most intense forces of nature without losing our balance.

A man with hair on his back. (Chandra Symbol). As we become more and more sensitized to our own power, we find we are able to move toward goals in a stable, patient, and grounded manner.

Fulfillment degree: Taurus 17. A book patiently waiting to spill forth its vast and profound knowledge. (Omega Symbol). Attuning to the depths of our inner powers we find ourselves in possession of a wealth of wisdom we may access.

A pomegranate broken open. (Chandra Symbol). Slow and steady progress leads to abundant fruition.

Oracle


In the full moon the fierce wind is howling, raging, the snows gigantic tentacles lashing the landscape, gales pouring down the mountains, as waves of the sea crash onto cliffs of ice.

And peacefully angels walk through the garden's raging perpetual winter, admiring the storm that is in full bloom, their hair and gowns gently flowing in their own mild breeze which follows them everywhere they go.


Libra 15. Young girls harvesting the choicest leaves of green tea. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Inspired

(Degree Angel: Hahasiah (he-HA-see-Yah) No Guilt, Universal Medicine)

You know how to take the time and careful, personal, artful effort to bring out the very best in a situation, and thereby to create maximum enjoyment of it by both yourself and other people. This helps others to feel all of life more vividly and fully, and to slow down and see with far greater clarity what is truly most important to them. A beautiful skill executed wonderfully.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “ Prehistoric paintings on the walls of a vast chamber of a cave.” The cave has preserved the paintings by protecting them from wind, rain, ice, snow and erosion. Deep within you are these beautiful pictures that have been there from time immemorial. It is wonderful they have been protected and are preserved. But it is also wonderful to share them with others. The challenge here is to invite others into your world so that you may share yourself with them in a deep way. You are seeking a vivid, transcendent way of relating, a way that overcomes all limits and which touches others deeply. It is only difficult to do this if you allow self-doubt to stand in the way. If you are willing to let go of uncertainty and immerse yourself totally in being who you are, magical connections with others will spontaneously arise.

Pleiadian Symbol: A spiral path that never seems to come to an end.

Azoth Symbol: A theoretical mathematician inventing formulae simply for the sake of their beauty.

Seed degree: Virgo 25. A man crawling on his hands and knees through dust keeps finding jewels and other valuable items. (Omega symbol). Looking deeply into life we find those things of great value that help us to bring loving care into all that we do.

A gold ring in the form of a snake swallowing its own tail. (Chandra Symbol). Realizing the repetitive nature of all cycles we come to see the deeper meaning and purpose of that which we continually repeat.

Fulfillment degree: Gemini 17.Deep in a cave a large albino snake. (Omega Symbol).
Giving loving and careful attention to all that we do creates in us an attunement to a pure source of deep inner wisdom.

A magic coin that has only one side. (Chandra Symbol). Perceiving the ancient imprints that exist in the deepest layers of our unconscious, we are able to see more clearly the one-sidedness of our thinking and how all thoughts are illusions.

Oracle

They call the tea “ancient emerald lily.” The tea bushes are wild, and so old the girls that harvest them must stand on little ladders to pick the smallest leaves that appear in spring at the tips of the branches.

On a dark winter day we discovered a tin of it on a shelf and brewed it, and a mist rose out of the pot which was scented pale green like the spring mists of an old Chinese forest.

(133) Omega/Chandra Symbols: Libra 6 - 10

Phase 38. Circuitry (Chet Ayin Mem)

Angel: HAAMIAH (HE-AH-mee-YAH) Ritual and ceremony


Libra 6. On a long voyage, many icebergs encountered. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Experimental

(Degree Angel: Mikael (MI-ka-EL) Revealing the Concealed, Political Authority and Order)

You do not operate by agendas, for you are always aware that everything is changing, and so the path ahead also changes. You sense the feelings of everyone around you, especially the emotional places of blockage and pain, and know how to move with and through these in a smooth, almost invisible manner. You have the potential of getting a tremendous amount of things accomplished, albeit usually slowly and gradually.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A baby with two sets of teeth.” This degree has a great desire to take in nourishment from all its relationships. It's question is always “of what value is this encounter to me – what can I give to it, and what can I get from it?” It senses the spiritual truth that nothing comes its way that is not for the purpose of furthering its spiritual development, and so it is eager to assimilate experiences, to “chew on” them so as to get the most nutritional benefit out of them possible. It doesn't like let go of anything until it understands it, or at least feels it has gotten something of what it needs from it.

All of this is carried out in a very innocent, open manner that will inevitably lead to the problems alluded to by the icebergs of the Omega Symbol, but which can benefit the soul tremendously.

Pleiadian Symbol: A wandering landscape searching for a canvas on which to dwell.

Azoth Symbol: At land's end a high rock and on it a tower.

Seed degree: Gemini 6. In the far north an ancient tower carved of ice. (Omega Symbol). Going to a place of stillness and calm where we can view existence from a higher perspective gives us the energy and focus needed to thread our way through life's difficulties and challenges.

A claw foot holding a ball. (Chandra Symbol). When we have been able to intuitively grasp the essence of knowledge in all its perfection, we next seek out ways to assimilate it so that it become a part of us. And we feel a drive to do this in such a way that we do not become one-sided in our experience of it, but are always maintaining a sense of the mystic duality of all truth.

Fulfillment degree: Virgo 16. A woman cutting the thorns off roses. (Omega Symbol). Having moved through so many difficulties and learned the art of avoiding obstructions, we feel a need to facilitate the flowering of love and to protect others from potentially dangerous influences.

A jar of camphor crystals. (Chandra Symbols). Our innocent desires to deeply assimilate experiences and to understand how everything has two sides develops in us the power to ward off all discordant influences.

Oracle

It should have been a frightening experience, its dangers harrowing, but, luckily, the ship was a ghost ship.

And, since it had no schedule to maintain, it was free to stop at any and all icebergs that captured the travelers' fancies, allowing them to disembark and sun themselves on the melting slopes, or bask in the deeps of night in moonlight, which was, in the open sea and on the bergs, at its most oceaniclly bluest.


Libra 7. The Great Wall of China making a huge shadow. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Sensitive

(Degree Angel: Veuliah (vay-OO-lee-AH) Defying Gravity, Prosperity)

You are aware of all the limits around you as well as within you. On the one hand you are intensely concerned with maintaining your own integrity by holding out all that might try to compel you to be other than what you are. On the other hand you can become quite frustrated with the restrictions you find everywhere. Your acute awareness of all life’s edges and boundaries can make you feel inpossibly limited but it can also imbue you with the ability to relate in a highly clear and focused manner.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A group of old ladies gossiping excitedly.” The ladies of this symbol are talking about limits – the limits of decency, the limits imposed by social mores, about people pushing and transgressing limits, and about the limited information they have as well as the desire to have more of it. And, of course, the wall in the Omega Symbol represents a great edifice devoted to limits that is casting its shadow over everything. Relationships are all about interacting within limits. It is a testing of our limits to see where they are and maybe to push them back to make more room for ourselves. It is through encountering, assessing and working with these limits that we come to know ourselves as well as others more clearly, and, based on this, define a path forward.

Pleiadian Symbol: A baby phoenix crawling forth from the ashes of its parent.

Azoth Symbol: A pictographic inscription in a tomb.

Seed degree: Gemini 19. The Golden Fleece hanging in a garden. (Omega Symbol). Sensing deeply our own destiny, which is the attainment of enlightenment, we become acutely aware of all that restricts us, encloses us, and prevents us from achieving freedom.

Strange creatures peaking out from behind trees. (Chandra Symbol). Sensing the great variety of nature spirits living everywhere, we are stimulated to exchange information with others in the hopes of more completely understanding the hidden energies at work all around us.

Fulfillment degree: Libra 16. After many revisions, a poem is thrown away. (Omega Symbol).Understanding all the various ways we are affected by obstructions and limitations helps us to abandon, when we need to, those projects which, although we have learned from them, we no longer need to pursue. Another way of expressing this is that limitations always teach us non-attachment.

A woman: The lower half of her body is a serpent. (Chandra Symbol).
The mind's curiosity leads it eventually into the realm of profound intuitive wisdom – a power to be respected, and which one must beware of misusing.

Oracle

He walked away as the sun set, leaving the wall's shadow behind him, knowing, as night drew on, it would eventually catch up and, overtaking him, engulf his own shadow, the two shadows growing gigantic as the merged with each other, and with the night.

The space between stars teaches us the vastness of all shadows.


Libra 8. A rare type of honey imbued with magical healing powers. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Receptive

(Degree Angel: Yelahiah (yay-LAH-hee-YAH) Sweetening Judgment, Karmic Warrior)

Rather than seeing anything as just one thing, you are aware that in all things are many different subtle elements, in short that everything is connected to everything. And so that which we want we already have – maybe not in the exact form we want, but at least in its essence. We actually lack nothing – its all there, everything, both inside and outside us. Your emanation of this truth can subtly imbue others with an aura of peace.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A vast junkyard.”
When what is ugly and/or useless is discarded then one can see what is beautiful and meaningful. This degree is all about seeing what trash is, and why it is trash, as a basis of perceiving the eternal, the enduring – the Gold of the Alchemists. It is so wonderful to collect all the trash together and put it in one place, out of the way. It's what keeps things beautiful. This is a Cancerian degree of Libra – it nurtures (Cancer) relationships (Libra) by continually removing the detritus from them so that they can be clear, and so that their best qualities can be appreciated. This is the true sweetness of the honey of the Omega Symbol, which can magically heal.

Pleiadian Symbol: Secretly a torch burns for thousands of years in the ruins of an ancient city.

Azoth Symbol: An archangel coordinating the efforts of his angelic band.

Seed Degree: Cancer 1. A potter at work. (Omega Symbol).
To contain energy so that it may be positively used, rather than allowing it to merely dissipate helps us to relate to others in a nurturing manner.

Rainbows slowly moving across a white wall. (Chandra Symbol).
To come in contact with pure beauty helps us to clear the junk from our lives, both within ourselves and in our world, so that we are no longer oppressed by what is useless and/or meaningless.

Fulfillment degree: Scorpio 16. A scientist using gravity waves to communicate with other universes. (Omega Symbol). Deeply reconnecting ourselves with the sweetness and healing power of nature grounds us in such a way that we are able to greatly expand our awareness.

Charon ferries the dead across the river Styx. (Chandra Symbol). Letting go of all we don't need, we are ready, then, for momentous transitions.

Oracle

(From the Ars Magica of Elucidus:) . . . There is a certain kind of flower whose scent causes a temporary loss of memory, so that one can never find them again, unless one has the great fortune of coming upon them by chance, which will always be in the far wilds, in places remote from human habitation. It is the pollen of these nameless flowers which yields a most potent honey, possessing vast powers of healing. For all wounds are a type of memory.


Libra 9. A healer who knows the secret of working with people’s breath. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Responsible

(Degree Angel: Sehaliah (say-HA-lee-YAH) The Power of Prosperity, Motivation and Willfulness)

You are aware of the way sadness and addictive attachment to the past robs us of our vividly relating to the present. You are always willing to begin again, to start over, to recapture the magic of the moment. And not just for yourself – you have the capacity to communicate this movement toward joyous and refreshing release from the past to those around you.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A cook fixing vegetable soup from a myriad of ingredients.”
The healer of the Omega symbol works with the breath, which is one thing that affects everything. The cook makes a multi-ingredient soup, which is one thing containing many things. So many things play into relating. This degree knows that in any relationship certain ingredients must dominate. If the pepper dominates, many people will not like the soup. If the flavors are balanced, the soup is wonderful – and many enjoy it.

This degree likes to use many different topics and types of energy for the purpose of relating, and experiments with trying to find the right mix that is the most flavorful. The free coming and going of energies in this process is much like breathing, which takes in and distributes energy, and, if one is sensitive to the restrictions and limitations of the process and flows with wherever the energy seems to want to go, can be wonderfully rejuvenating.

Pleiadian Symbol: In the middle of the night three portraits converse with each other in whispers.

Azoth Symbol: A carved marble ear has washed up on the beach.

Seed degree: Cancer 13. Wind blowing through an old Pan's pipe. (Omega Symbol).
Tuning in to the seemingly random energy flows of nature, we see that they are actually a part of us, and that simple awareness of them can magnify their harmonizing potentials.

Many voices singing different songs at the same time. (Chandra Symbol).
The myriad songs of nature, heard, can be selected from to create a mixture a nourishing food for the self.

Fulfillment degree: Sagittarius 16. A magician's wand sprouting golden leaves. (Omega Symbol). Becoming attuned to our own flow brings new life to the magic of our being.

A man shearing sheep. (Chandra Symbol). The meeting of inner needs provides us with a basis for being able to meet outer needs.

Oracle

From the Ars Magica of Elucidus:) . . . Breath is wind. It is the soul's creation of vacuums which stirs the air, creating breath. And that which we call wind, or living air, though unseen, becomes a vehicle of existence for much else that is seen, such as mists, smokes, fogs, and the circulations of blood, which lose all movement when deprived of breath.

The greatest secret of breath is that it has a life of its own, being a faithful friend to the one who breathes, capable of performing any feat of healing and possessing powers much greater than commonly known. For breath may be sent on far journeys both inside and outside the self, to accomplish the miraculous.


Libra 10. A ginseng root in the shape of a human being. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Inspired

(Degree Angel: Ariel (AH-ree-EL) Absolute Certainty, Perceiver and Revealer)

Rather than compartmentalizing life, you are aware of its wholeness, and of how anything and everything we encounter can heal us, if we will let it. You never relate to others in a mechanical or taken-for-granted way. You see each moment of relating to life as an experiment which can be an opening to release and liberation.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A hand with perfectly manicured long nails.” The ginseng root is said to be able to help the whole body, because the root is shaped like a whole body. The hand like the body, has five appendages and has on it reflex points that can help the whole body. At best we find with this degree refinement and balance – an ability to relate in a delicate and careful way. There's strong desire here to do what is appropriate. If this is used to serve a spiritual purpose this degree can be adept at communicating an idea in such a smooth way that it is easily taken in by the other person.

Always remember that the hand is the organ of giving. If this degree allows all of its actions to grow out of the spirit of giving, it will create much good karma and find the fulfillment it seeks. If, on the other hand, the focus is on looking good and hence conforming too much to the expectations of others, it will find itself burdened with a constant undercurrent of frustration.

Pleiadian Symbol: Torrential rapids descending into an utterly still and crystal-clear lake.

Azoth Symbol: A tree suggests to a man that he use one of its branches for a walking stick.

Seed degree: Cancer 25. An invisible man yearning to feel the sun on his skin. (Omega Symbol). Being able to feel, intuitively, the purpose of life grounds us in wholeness.

A flock of penguins on an icy beach. (Chandra Symbol). Giving and receiving support in the midst of difficult circumstances extends our abilities in general to give and receive.

Fulfillment degree: Capricorn 16. An invisible skull reveals a living human brain, its surface flickering with rainbows. (Omega Symbol). Deep and complete grounding gives us an anchor that allows us to enter into higher realms in a sustained and balanced manner.

Dinosaur bones discovered while digging. (Chandra Symbol). We come to perceive that that which is seemingly refined and sophisticated has its roots in ancient and deeply primitive energies.

Oracle

(From the Ars Magica of Elucidus) . . .Just as a ginseng root, humans grow in darkness, finding around themselves all the nutrients they need, though often unaware of the great extent of this truth. And like the root of ginseng they are held for a length of time in a certain place, made fast by the density around them, their souls yearning for greater freedom of movement, light, and the vastness of space, but compelled by their higher knowing to hold fast in darkness, growth always requiring a time of waiting.

And all the while in the unseen above them their leaves and flowers open to the sun, thriving and flourishing, this process being fed by that which happens to the root, in confinement, working deep in the soil.

(132) Omega Chandra Symbols: Libra 1 - 5

Phase 37. The Big Picture (Aleph Nun Yud)

Angel: ANIEL (AH-nee-EL) Breaking the Circle


Libra 1. An apothecary shop in which herbal concoctions and other medicines appear as needed. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Experimental

(Degree Angel: Aniel (AH-nee-EL) The Big Picture, Breaking the Circle)

Desire and need combined with pure intent can create their own fulfillment spontaneously. The secret here is that the point of power is in the present, which is beyond the fear (whose roots are always in the past) and hope (which focuses on the future). You have the power of spontaneous manifestation of the exact energy that the present calls for.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A group of fat Italian ladies preparing bread.” This degree has an ability to find the easiest most direct ways of relating to the world around it, and to other people in particular. It wants everyone to feel nourished, included, and to have a good time. It mixes so very well with all other types of energies and degrees, and functions as a kind of lubricant that makes everything run more smoothly through an ease of connecting that is inviting. It has about it a simple and elusive beauty, that, like the medicines of the Omega Symbol can mutate into what will best serve the purpose of enhancing interaction.

Pleiadian Symbol: A butterfly becoming transparent, its wings shimmering with rainbow colors.

Azoth Symbol: Tall, thin men traveling on unicycles.

Seed degree: Aries 7. An old man admiring a portrait of himself as a youth. (Omega Symbol). Appreciating the processes wrought by time, we eventually are able to overcome the constraints of time, and to find that what we need is distant in neither time nor space.

A double-headed eagle, the heads face in opposite directions. (Chandra Symbol). When we come to understand the dualistic nature of power, we are inclined to work with others in bringing nourishment to those immediately around us.

Fulfillment degree: Aries 16. To rejuvenate himself a man is partially buried in the earth. (Omega Symbol). The gifts bestowed on us by the spiritual light are used to help us connect more harmoniously to the earthly realm.

Three sculptured birds: one black marble, one white marble, one solid gold. (Chandra Symbol). Through giving to others and helping to meet their needs our life takes on greater freedom and meaning in all ways.

Oracle

An alchemist invented an apothecary shop which mirrored completely the realm of disease. Anyone who entered it immediately reflected their essence onto the mind of the shop, which generated herbs and compounds as an echoing of felt needs. The shop held all the answers and solutions one could ever desire.

What was curious was how few people came to the shop, and of those few who came and took home the medicines, how many of the medicines were placed on a shelf somewhere and forgotten.

So the shop, always desirous of improving the potency and efficacy of its products began focusing on other medications, such as songs, weather, and memory clusters which it harvested out of people and distilled into custom-made homeopathic essences.

Illusions, properly selected and harvested, were also found to be highly salutory.


Libra 2. A vast tract of windmills. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Sensitive

(Degee Angel: Haamiah (He-AH-mee-YAH) Circuitry, Ritual and ceremony)

You pick up on a wide variety of different thoughts that are continually passing through the minds of others, and tune in to the currents of thought forms affecting humanity as a whole. Rather than falling prey to the chaos and negativity that this sea of thoughts so often carries, you are good at finding the positive, life supporting currents within it and amplifying these. Your forte is the ability to put seemingly aimless energy to some sort of good use that benefits all.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “An apprentice medicine man allowing himself to be bitten by a snake.” You see the potential value of attempting to relate to difficult people and situations, and even if you are consciously trying to avoid such encounters something in you will either draw them to you or seek them out for the purpose of learning something that it is very necessary for you to learn. You are very aware of how the defensiveness of people can cause them to be hostile or destructive in how they connect with others, but you also know how to defuse this so that relationships can improve in significant way.

Pleiadian Symbol: As one climbs steps they turn into water which flows upward.

Azoth Symbol: Crows gathering in late autumn twilight.

Seed degree: Aries 19. A skeleton dressed in garlands of flowers. (Omega Symbol). Giving in to the processes of change and realizing their beauty opens us up to unexpected possibilities of communication.

Someone performing trephination. (Chandra Symbol). Opening up one's mind brings a fearlessness in encountering new experiences.

Fulfillment degree: Taurus 16. At the bottom of a gorge, a river turbulent with rapids. (Omega Symbol). Allowing ourselves to freely connect with others frees up emotional restrictions, energizing our feeling body.

A young girl and boy explore a perfume counter. (Chandra Symbol). Confronting our fears always opens us up to new experiences containing possibilities of greater fulfillment.

Oracle

The windmills tall and white, each with three arms, thousands of windmills and thousands of arms, each one resisting and slowing the wind a little. The wind, though, loves to die just as much as it loves to be born, it will wear itself down a little by pushing the blades, running through them like hair through a comb, the blades straightening the long strands of wind, but only for a moment, until it tangles once again, and laughs its inaudible laugh, which makes the trees laugh too, audibly.


Libra 3. A painting upside-down in a museum. No one notices the mistake. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Receptive

(Degree Angel: Rehael (RAY-ha-EL) Diamond in the Rough, Filial Submission)

You see things always in a way that is new and different from the norm. Somehow the usual assumptions and biases that most people take for granted just don’t stick to you. This is a wonderful quality, and can manifest as great insight. Do not allow the negative reactions of others to cause you to doubt what you have to give.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “An inaccurate, imaginative map of the world.” When there's something you don't know you can always make it up, and through doing this can access what's inside you by a process of projecting it on the outside world. The challenge here is to not get reality confused with one's speculations. As more information comes in the map can always be modified toward a more accurate and detailed picture. There is a great value, though, in speculation before facts are known, for it stimulates further exploration, which is something this degree very much loves to do.

Pleiadian Symbol: The Sun rises into a parallel universe.

Azoth Symbol: On an altar a bowl full of darkness and a bowl full of light.

Seed degree: Taurus 1. To cleanse them, crystals are placed in a stream. (Omega Symbol). Through uniting with the present we come into greater clarity, which gives us a new perspective on everything.

A red garnet ring. The garnets glow. (Chandra Symbol). Eagerness to live and to grow impels us to project our imagination onto the territory that lays before us.

Fulfillment degree: Gemini 16. A man is projecting numbers at someone for the purpose of healing that person. (Omega Symbol). Freed from the usual way of looking at things we are able to tap into the realm of pure vibration and explore its possbilities.

A single sunflower wilting and dropping its seeds. (Chandra Symbol). The products of the imagination either grow into something, or serve to fertilize future cycles of growth.

Oracle

(This actually happened. It was at the Chicago Art Institute. The painter was Edwin Dickinson).

Two people, laying on a bed, each facing the other's feet. Spectators viewed them from above.

Even short dreams can change one into a fossil, making the night last millions of years, which, in the long run can provide a far sounder sleep.

Vaguely sensing their reversal, they assumed it was only the crust of the earth moving a little, in its own sleep.

Such slight interruptions only serve to intensify comfort.


Libra 4. By accident, a man finds an invisible tower. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Responsible

(Degree Angel: Yeiazel (YAY-ah-ZEL) Speaking the Right Words, Divine Consolation and Comfort)

It is so easy to get sucked down into the quagmires and illusions of physical reality. You, though, have a magic way of being able to always get above it all, to elevate yourself and to pull others up with you. How can you be so positive and see through things so acutely, they all wonder. Its just a gift that you have brought from former lifetimes.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A woman bites into a lemon and makes a face.” This degree has strong reactions to stimuli. It's always wanting progress to happen in relationships, wanting the other person to openly express reactions, wanting differences to be clearly defined, and, if possible, resolved. It figures that if it focuses on what is wrong, then maybe it can be resolved. The problem is, no support or encouragement for these desires may be forthcoming from the outside world.

This degree needs to realize that all experiences are just a projection of itself – that all conflicts can be resolved inwardly, and that one is not dependent on the outside. When this is realized, oddly enough, the outside then tends to become easier to deal with, and more likely to be supportive.

Pleiadian Symbol: Deep in a cave gnomes sitting around a flickering fire.

Azoth Symbol: A convoy of humans landing on a new planet.

Seed degree: Taurus 13. A fruit that smells terrible but tastes wonderful. (Omega Symbol). Overcoming any aversions we may have to those things which will nourish us, we gain a new, unique and expanded perspective on our world.

A treatise on imaginary creatures. (Chandra Symbol). The intensity of our reactions to the world seeks new and more vivid ways to express itself.

Fulfillment degree: Cancer 16. A woman dressed in immaculately clean rags. (Omega Symbol). When we rise above the territory in which we find ourselves and hence gain an an expanded perspective on our true place in the world, our identity is cleansed of attachments as well as the need to be something just because others want us to be that.

A skull carved out of quartz crystal. (Chandra Symbol). When we allow ourselves to express openly and directly our reactions to life, rather than storing those reactions in our being where they will for stress patterns, we clear out our consciousness and develop, eventually, a crystalline perceptivity, and receptivity to the spiritual light.

Oracle

Glad he'd been walking so slowly, admiring the vista, for he ran into it, bumping his forehead.

He felt for and found a door. He noticed the steps were made of wind, sturdier than one might think, and circular. He ascended so high the sky grew black, but he could still breathe – a little piece of blue sky had followed him up, enveloping his head like a cloudless aurora.

Looking out he viewed the curvature of the earth, cities and seas. A miraculously stable tower, at least for the moment. He called it the Great Antiquity of the Present.


Libra 5. A flagpole with no flag. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Inspired

(Degree Angel: Hahahel (HA-ha-HEL) Self-Esteem, Mission)

You cannot align yourself with any one group – you simply will not limit yourself in that way. You are not aggressively, or even openly rebellious, but you are beyond the usual systems that run the world. It causes you to emit a fresh and open vibration that relates to life in a purely direct way, unencumbered by the past.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A man raising a crop of marijuana.” This degree has a wide open, uninhibited way of relating to the world. It doesn't think in terms of any relationships having set limits, or even consistent formats. It's attitude is “lets explore it all, as much as we want, as much as is enjoyable, and when the mood strikes us.” It is the diametric opposite of formal, conservative, and stiff. The flagpole doesn't need a flag to advertise partisanship. We can run any flag of any country we want to run up it at any time, change them at will, or run up the flag pole just some colored, celebrational flags, to let everyone know there's a party going on and all are invited.

Pleiadian Symbol: Putting his ear to a coffin a man hears the whispering of poems.

Azoth Symbol: A man tuning in to the music of the spheres.

Seed degree: Taurus 25. A holographic computer. (Omega Symbol). Seeing thing in a complete way, we are able to give up our biases and one-sided allegiances.

Bees returning to their hive. (Chandra Symbol). Sensing our deep connection with others gives rise to a desire help them become more aware of their feelings, relax, enjoy life, and to open up to new experiences.

Fulfillment degree: Leo 16. An angel appears to lost travelers and shows them the right direction. (Omega Symbol). Letting go of the need to limit oneself through partisanship opens one to the possibilities of assistance that cosmic entities have to offer.

A red-faced man, tears running down his cheeks. He is laughing convulsively. (Chandra Symbol). Allowing ourselves to relax and to connect more deeply with our feelings gives us the chance to clear out our emotional body so that greater bliss can be experienced.

Oracle

It wasn't just a pole stuck in the ground, but a shaft inviting the imagination of flags. Everyone who looked at it saw different flags of different shapes and colors, some simple, some complex, some perisistent, others momentary. It all depended on what they wanted to be under, and what the wind was willing to flutter.

(131) Omega/Chandra Symbols: Virgo 26 - 30

Phase 36. Fear(less) (Mem Nun Daled)

Angel: Menadel (Meh-na-DEL) Inner/outer work


Virgo 26. Under the full moon, a sagging balcony. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Experimental

(Degree Angel: Vasariah (va-SAH-ree-Yah) Memories, Clemency and Equilibrium)

You are aware, both in yourself and others, of a great accumulation of feeling that has happened over time, we well as the need to unburden ourselves from this. We all need to explore the hidden parts of ourselves, but we can’t do this all at once – it would be too overwhelming. And so you know how to proceed gradually, and if you keep in tune with your instinct it can tell you how to do this.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “An old man counting gold coins.” Gold is the metal of the Sun, and, of course, each coin is shaped like the Sun. The sun signifies meaning and purpose, and here we find many meanings, many purposes, which add up to a richness, a wealth, an abundance – which goes beyond the singular meaning and purpose of our own Sun, which is just one among billions of other Suns.

So much may be accomplished with all this meaning and purpose. The goal here is to be aware of it all, to be aware of the wealth that we may draw on, and to help others to be aware of it. This degree can be very adept at healing poverty consciousness. It is interesting that the Omega Symbol of this degree alludes to the planet which is the polar opposite of the Sun – the Moon – and that the Omega Symbol alludes to poverty and lack of support. The balcony wants to lift us up, but it has become weakened by time and the elements. Emotional fulfillment, though – as symbolized by the full Moon – is possible, if we can become aware of the weakness of our supports and know how to rebuild and strengthen them – and this degree does.

Pleiadian Symbol: A worshiper lighting sandalwood incense in a temple dedicated to Ganesh.

Azoth Symbol: People carrying bundles of kindling from a forest.

Seed degree: Aquarius 6. Seeing a stone lion in a museum a young girl asks her parents if they are in the zoo. (Omega Symbol). The girl senses aliveness in this seemingly non-living museum object. Her instincts tell her the truth – everything is alive, and when we realize this we become capable of seeing what in us needs support and repair, which we can accomplish if we act on our inner sensings.

A gardener with just one leg. (Chandra Symbol). Lack and difficulty can lead us to deeper and deeper realizations of all that we have.

Fulfillment degree: Scorpio 15. Intently and faithfully a man observes his own breath. (Omega Symbol). Freeing ourselves of the heaviness of the past and its oppressive memories we guide our consciousness always back to the present moment, which is the source of all healing.

A woman with a gold tooth. (Chandra Symbol). Clearly assessing what we have we eventually go beyond the satisfaction of mere ownership and find ways of using it to restore our power in a real way.

Oracle

She peered out the door at the balcony, yearning to step onto it and enter the moonlight. She knew, though, that it could not support her, at least not until she had passed from this world and could then view the moon from it as a spirit, divested of her shadow's heaviness.

Virgo 27. A cup made from a skull. It is filled with dark wine. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Sensitive

(Degree Angel: Yehuiah (yay-Hoo-ee-YAH) Revealing the Dark Side, Subordination to Higher Order)

The mind can generate such debris in its continual playing around. You know that this debris can be like fertilizer. We can’t get away from it, for if we struggle against it we will only set up a conflict between ourselves and it. The best way to handle this is to allow ourselves to feel what we are feeling, and to the depth we’re feeling it. This will ultimately release and purify the mind.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “The magician disrobes. He has no sex organs.” The lack of sex organs here signifies the transcendence of duality and the overcoming of separateness. There is a tremendous ability here to see beyond the outer, to use the analytical power of Virgo to cut through surfaces and find the truth. The skull of the Omega Symbol signifies the past, and the wine within it is the wisdom and learning to be gained from completely assimilating what the past was trying to teach us.

At its highest this degree has the ability to take in the past so deeply that it can then overcome dualities and fully arrive, as if by a miracle, at the present, where, looking with an unclouded vision it sees things that may have gone long unrecognized.

Pleiadian Symbol: A famous geisha performing the tea ceremony.

Azoth Symbol: Transparent fish swimming in a sea of vivid blue.

Seed degree: Aquarius 18. A cloud in the middle of an empty sky has lost its way. (Omega Symbol). When we give up our need to cling to agendas and embrace the inevitability of death, we are able to contact our deepest passions.

An American Indian woman in a canoe. She is gathering wild rice. (Chandra Symbol). Taking from nature the nourishment it offers to us, in an attitude of grateful acceptance, provides a basis for letting go of the dualistic pulls of identity, so that we may simply be ourselves, and thereby discover our inherent magic.

Fulfillment degree: Sagittarius 15. Prized possessions are disappearing, one by one. (Omega Symbol). When we allow ourselves to become immersed in our deepest passions, we lose the need to own anything, for we become one with all of nature.

A tidal wave approaching. (Chandra Symbol). It is duality itself that is the basis of all our attachments, and once it is let go of, vast and sweeping changes will inevitably occur.

Oracle



Virgo 28. A baby experiments with different sounds its mouth can make. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Receptive

(Degree Angel: Lehahiah (Lay-HA-hee-YAH) Forget Thyself, Obedience)

You innocently try out things and experiment with energy, and in doing so you can open up new paths of communicating. The most difficult thing is to keep doing this without judging it or allowing the reactions of other people to divert or stop you. Life is a piece of equipment – a very large, elaborate and mysterious one, and you’re determined to explore it.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Autumn leaves pressed in a book.” Here is a reminder that all things are going to die, and based on this a need to continually correct one's course by ridding it of whatever doesn't support personal evolution. Both this symbol and its accompanying Omega Symbol have about them a feeling of simplicity – a quality not usually associated with Virgo. It is here that Virgo turns its attention to the need to clear out what is unimportant and continually reform its existence so that it is more closely a clear expression of who one really is – just like the baby keep re-forming its mouth to see what sounds can be made.

Facts and information can actually build up as a kind of garbage which then requires Virgo's purifying aspect.

Pleiadian Symbol: Moonlight reflecting off the shiny head of an old man.

Azoth Symbol: A city that can hide in and be called forth from a magical gem.

Seed degree: Aquarius 30. Because they're sure a treasure is there, people dig on an island for many years. (Omega Symbol). Innocent curiosity, when allowed to express itself becomes a potent force of seeking that always tends to engage others in its process.

A large pool filled with white water lilies in bloom. (Chandra Symbol). The purity and beauty of our feelings can create an attachment to the past, but can also – if we allow ourselves to experience them deeply and totally, help us to appreciate all phases of life, including its decline and passing.

Fulfillment degree: Capricorn 15. An angelologist explains the sacred hierarchies. (Omega Symbol). Innocent experimentation with our own creativity helps us to perceive more and more clearly how the spiritual light is structured to uplift us in every way.

A woman wearing a necklace of skulls. (Chandra Symbol). The memories we have hidden away inside us eventually accumulate to the point that we become aware of the vast expanses of time through which we have lived and will live, which allows us to eventually let go of fear and attachment.

Oracle

Some of the sounds were the blue of young skies, others the pink of dawn, or the yellow of baby chicks. In the morning of words the vowels glowed with pleasure and wonder, even the sad ones were clear as water trickling over glass. The consonants shyly apppeared, like flower buds. Noises, the prima materia of random sound in which swam the wiggling, squirming seeds of all stories, happy to be alive.


Virgo 29. Pagans purifying themselves beneath a waterfall. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Responsible

(Degree Angel: Chavakiah (cha-VA-kee-Yah) Sexual Energy, Reconciliation)

You know that the world is there for us to use for our own growth, and that if we do this in the right way it is harmless to the universe, and supports all of life. You have a great ability to make use of what is there in ways that can be joyous and simple. Your approach to existence is refreshing and generous, which can generate much magic power to nurture us all.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A witch preparing magic mushrooms.” Mushroom grow up very quickly, and rot very quickly as well. The witch is aware of this – aware that things must be used in their immediacy, that every moment is soon to die, but in its flowering has a potency and usefulness which can be employed. Trying to be perfect can be lethal in that it can inhibit one and thereby cause one to lose the myriads of opportunities that are continually passing.

This degree is about overcoming the minds tendency to want to dominate and instead attuning to and moving with energy directly.

Pleiadian Symbol: A long sought after formula is finally found in a rare old book.

Azoth Symbol: An explanation of a hidden reality.

Seed degree: Pisces 12. A fantastic archaeological find is being kept secret. (Omega Symbol). After trying to maintain control over the self through repression, the ego gives up and immerses itself in the healing flow of nature.

A woman asleep in a ring of flames. (Chandra Symbol). Our life sleeps in the center of our being, waiting for our consciousness to move through the healing flames that will burn away the ego so that we may merge totally with our power. This then, becomes the basis of a full, creative employment of our inner wisdom.

Fulfillment degree: Aquarius 15. A geisha applying her makeup. (Omega Symbol). Clearing and cleansing our energy fields, we are ready to consciously take on the creative role we have chosen to play in life.

A jade burial suit. (Chandra Symbol). When we practically use our wisdom by tuning in to the spiritual needs of the moment we build up around ourselves a protective force field that assists us in keeping focused on our work.

Oracle

They put aside their feathers by the pool, and entered naked the falling water. The goddess cooled them, her white hair falling from the high rocks, her splashing washing away the dark footprints of demons who had journeyed through their auras.

Her lover the light always came to play in her, and they, as they bathed washed themselves with his sparklings and shadows. Sighing, the rocks' bellies rose and fell, yielding their hardness to her and growing soft beneath her touch.


Virgo 30. A man catching a ripe fruit as it falls off a tree. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Inspired

(Degree Angel: Menadel (Meh-na-DEL) Fear(less), Inner/outer work)

Is life easy, or is it work? It all depends on what we need. If you try to get out of work that you need to do, something will always pull you back to it. If you tune in, though, to the generosity and fullness of the universe, you can truly transcend the need to work and find the abundance of the universe open up to you. It’s all about your beliefs.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Supersensible beings manifesting through geometric forms.” These forms are just forms until these spirits come into them. And so life is nothing but a vast collection of many different types of forms. But what is most important is the consciousness moving within the form. The specific forms singled out here are regular, symetrical, perfect ones, ones that bring spiritual energy into the physical realm. You have the capacity to tune into spiritual energies and your ultimate challenge is to do this with more and more focus and to move with wherever those energies take you. In this you are not just being responsible to any one thing, but to everything – to the evolution of all.

Pleiadian Symbol: The locating of a particular frequency which, once tuned in to proliferates a wondrous harmony into the atmosphere.

Azoth Symbol: A woman senses the interconnected and simultaneous growth of everything.

Seed degree: Pisces 24. An empty perfume bottle, the scent completely gone. (Omega Symbol). Overcoming our deep yearning for the beauty and joy of the past, we eventually find a fullness and ripeness in the moment.

A spring festival. The participants are in a state of ecstatic frenzy. (Chandra Symbol). Our happiness and joy draws to it beings who, through their harmonizing influences assist us in finding a higher and more enduring bliss.

Fulfillment degree: Pisces 15. On a hill above a river the ruins of a castle. (Omega Symbol). Sensing that every moment is pregnant with a wealth of possibilities, we are then able to decide which ones we are going to explore, and which allow to pass us by – ultimately without worrying about the rightness of our actions or needing to justify our choices.

Many kinds of fruits arrayed on a silver tray. (Chandra Symbol). The angels who bring harmony and clarity to our world offer us many different kinds of spiritual foods, that express many forms of beauty and love.

Oracle
From the sky food entered his hand. He sat under the tree, in Paradise, thinking that the golden fruit hanging above him was eternal, and therefore inedible – which it was. But the tree had taken pity on him, and conferring mortality on its fruit, offered it to him. It was the Tree of Knowledge, which, since his original parents had already eaten of it, could no longer harm him, for he'd inherited an immunity to its poison.

Eating it he learned that some laws, like some fruit, are mortal, and hence subject to both death and transformation.
