Phase 14. Farewell to Arms (Mem bet Hey)
Angel: MEBAHEL (May-ba-HEL) Truth, Liberty, and Justice
Gemini 6. In the far north an ancient tower carved of ice. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Experimental
(Degree Angel: Manakel (MA-na-KEL) Accountability, Knowledge of Good and Evil)
You have so many thoughts, and perceive so many ideas that it can become very difficult for you to decide where to focus or how to put them all together. You need to not let this overwhelm you. Instead, keep focused on the flow of things, and know that all will get to where it needs to go. There is a spiritual rightness at work beneath all things. The simple intent to stay attuned to it is your magic.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A claw foot holding a ball.” Here is the attempt to grasp wholes, and to overcome the potentially fragmented quality of Gemini, just as in the Omega Symbol what is usually liquid – water – is fixed into a substantial form up which one can ascend to get an overview of the surrounding territory. The struggle is not in trying to put things together – they already have a divine structure and purpose – but to resist the distractions of lesser, trivial things.
Pleiadian Symbol: A sinkhole opens up into the earth.
Azoth Symbol: A book of formulas.
Seed degree: Gemini 3. An invisible man wandering in the night. (Omega Symbol). When we perceive to an extent the overall pattern of spiritual realities, we are able to explore the depths of the self more freely and openly.
A dense thicket of brambles surrounding a magic castle. (Chandra Symbol). Sensing the pure aliveness at the center of ourselves, we are able to grasp wholeness – the magic antidote to fragmentation, lack, and incompleteness.
Fulfillment degree: Virgo 6. Talismans buried here and there along the road so that travelers will be protected. (Omega Symbol). Perceiving how we can be substantially supported by our own emotions, we tap in to the protective influences we find on every hand as we journey forward through time.
A banyan tree that creates an entire forest. (Chandra Symbol). From the clarity and eternal completeness of consciousness springs with wonderfully complicated tree of life, ever growing, renewing and expanding.
The cold allowed the water to achieve a stillness it could never attain in the sea. A waterspout arose and froze and a man filled it with stairs and visited the top, where he witnessed the aurora borealis casting its tremulous lights across the white land. The tower patiently absorbed his fear of falling, and even invited him to sleep for awhile in the air, for to traverse the long arctic night required many dreams.
Gemini 7. Poetry which sounds beautiful but makes no logical sense. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Sensitive
(Degree Angel: Eyael (AY-ya-EL) Great Expectations, Transformation to the Sublime)
Logic, which is so compelling and seems so set and clear can be a powerful illusion, for there is always a higher logic, or a different logic which we haven’t taken into account. You are aware of this, and know that what people most need is to listen to the music of their soul and the boundless joy it evokes. This is the guiding force of life.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A table comes to life and runs away.” We sometimes try to make something serve a purpose it doesn't want to serve. Words, too, have a purpose, but in the Omega Symbol they are freed from that purpose to roam in the imagination. This degree is all about giving up expectations and agendas and either letting things be what they will be, or experimenting with them in new, often unorthodox and unexpected ways.
Pleiadian Symbol: Looking down into a well a man sees, far below, his face.
Azoth Symbol: A game of change offering a fabulous prize.
Seed degree: Gemini 15. A magician's tower looms above the surrounding landscape. (Omega Symbol). The creative vision of the whole landscape of self allows us to free our mind of limitation and enjoy the beauty of existence as it is.
People gathering salt from the ocean. (Chandra Symbol). Coming to understand how our emotions are subtly connected to the physical world, we let go of deeply held basic assumptions, which opens us up to life's surprises and miracles.
Fulfillment degree: Libra 6. On a long voyage, many icebergs encountered. (Omega Symbol). Accepting the mysteriousness of beauty and letting go of the need for explanations, we accept problems and challenges as they are, and learn to deal with them gently, rather than head-on.
A baby with two sets of teeth. (Chandra Symbol). Perceiving that everything has a life of its own, and that everything is always more than it seems, we experience a childlike eagerness to assimilate whatever is nourishing from our experiences.
Many of the words had become bored with appropriate relationships and were seeking other, more illicit connections. And definitions, though they had faithfully served, had, over time begun to exude a boredom that made the words contemplate the possibility of distant travels, or even short trips, but in directions that freed them from all maps. They craved to communicate something new, something that irritated the understanding, causing it to wake out of an unknown sleep. And, of course, knowing all the time that there would always be ample worlds left to the pristine beauty of their unsayability..
Gemini 8. A man performing a strange, expressive dance only by moving his hands. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Receptive
(Degree Angel: Habuhiah (he-bU-hee-YAH) Contacting Departed Souls, Healing)
Your very being helps people to be more flexible, to transcend the nightmares and traumas of the past, and to be able to more fully receive from life and give back to it. You have a talent for being able to captivate the attention of others, and through their perception of what you’re doing inspirations are triggered in them that can lead them out of their current life snags.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A chandelier which holds lit candles.” The hands in the Omega Symbol give forth the light of meaning, just as the candles give forth the light by which we can see what is around us. This is a luminous degree, helping others to see their way forward, and giving as much as it can to those in need. It finds within itself what is needed to serve the situation at hand, and can often be surprised at what can come forth from the depths of self at the right moment and when the need arises.
Pleiadian Symbol: The factory machines all stop for a moment. A celestial Choir is heard.
Azoth Symbol: A full Moon brightens the Arctic night.
Seed degree: Gemini 27. Cleaning someone's aura with a quartz crystal. (Omega Symbol). The energy field is cleared, which allows communications to spontaneously flow forth from ones being.
Much food stored in a cool cave. (Chandra Symbol). We do all that we can now, and offer all that can be accepted, knowing that whatever is more than that may be saved for later.
Fulfillment degree: Scorpio 6.Unaccustomed to high altitudes, a woman breathes deeply and walks slowly. (Omega Symbol). To take in the subtleties of communication we need to learn to be patient, and proceed as slowly as is necessary.
A dancer with eight arms. (Chandra Symbol). As we focus on the spiritual light, we find ourselves moving under the impulses of its coreography, and moving with a flow that transcends rational thought and decision.
The dance being choreographed for hands alone allowed him to sit peacefully on clouds or lotuses as he danced. He enjoyed watching his hands, being always surprised and delighted to see what they would do next, and he learned much from them as they spoke to each other in the language they made up as they went along. Instinctively his hands knew the art of giving and receiving, the flow into and out of their source.
And then closing his eyes the hands, too decided to rest for awhile, as they laid themselves, one on top of the other, facing upward, in his lap.
Gemini 9. A ruby growing in a laboratory. (Omega Symbol)Interacting/Responsible
(Degree Angel: Rochel (ro-SHEL) Lost and Found, Restitution)
When we don’t have what we need we can always make what we need. Purpose is something that is a spiritual constant, but which on the physical plane is always being recreated in a new form. You are a tremendously resourceful person, and can help people to see that they can get whatever they want and need – all it takes is connectedness to source.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Wild flowers growing around the ruins of a temple.” What was such an effort before now can manifest simply, because it was so well-learned previously. Here the seemingly modest and humble carries within it a spiritually deep and powerful vibration. In the Omega Symbol the ruby comes into being far faster than it would have, had it grown naturally. Ruby, in classical Vedic astrology is the gem of the Sun and so carries the energy of the heart. and signifies meaning and purpose – which comes to life in the laboratory, bringing in warmth and vitality, just as the wildflowers bring back to life the spiritual energies once focused in the temple which is now ruined. This is a degree of the rebirth of love, joy, and meaning, which emerges whenever our aspirations and sense of direction have become worn out (the temple ruins), or too cold and removed from the heart (the scientific laboratory).
Pleiadian Symbol: Sharp, tiny darts whose tips have been dipped in flower elixirs.
Azoth Symbol: A man travels through a dreary land under a louring sky.
Seed Degree: Cancer 9. A man shaking dew off of orchids into a glass vial. (Omega Symbol). Capturing the vital essences of nature, we are able to work them them to find countless new modes of creation.
A skeleton playing a flute. (Chandra Symbol). To accept changes and joyfully partake of the transformations they bring attunes us to a simple approach to life that respects and acknowledges the past and rekindles the spiritual fire within.
Fulfillment degree: Sagittarius 6. In a red desert, a lush, green plantation produced by irrigation. (Omega Symbol). Becoming co-creators with nature we are able to establish sources of nourishment even in the most barren of environments.
A pair of shoes with live wings on each. (Chandra Symbol).
To simply be ourselves and affirm our life imbues us with an understanding that frees us from all heaviness and oppression.
The scientist has found ways to compress time, but the crystals he grows are unaware of this. They think they've spent thousands of years in the laboratory, for what is time to beings who breathe light? The ruby grows bigger and pinker and is faintly aware of the ground which it is not in, and the missing darkness, awarenesses rather curious, oddly pleasant, and nourishing to the vividness of its color. (Rubies are unable to worry – certainly the universe is a vast place and stranger things have happened there).
Gemini 10. Magic glasses which allow one to read a secret text. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Inspired
(Degree Angel: Jabamiah (ya-BA-mee-YAH) Recognizing Design Beneath Disorder, Alchemy, Transformation)
Things in the physical realm can often seem very unclear – impenetrable. Sometimes just a slight change of attitude, or viewing things from a different angle, or with a new set of beliefs can cause what is happening to become clear and legible. You are a natural interpreter, and so can help others to understand what is going on through your unique way of seeing.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A young woman notices the handsome man has fangs.” In both of these symbols something new is perceived that wasn't before. This degree has highly unique perceptions and so can offer a new and different perspective on many things. It's especially aware of any dangers afoot, and of hidden motives that others harbor. It may be, though, that this degree's perceptions are not accepted by other people – maybe because others are in denial, or possibly because these perceptions reveal subconscious motives that the person is not aware of, or maybe for other reasons as well. And so in some contexts it might be better to keep these insights to oneself until the time and/or the context is right to reveal them.
There is also here the danger of jumping to the wrong conclusions as to the meaning and nature of what one perceives, or of misinterpreting data or projecting onto it one's own fears and desires.
Pleiadian Symbol: A pterodactyl soaring to get a better look at the stars.
Azoth Symbol: A group of friends perform folk songs.
Seed degree: Cancer 21. A man milking a poisonous snake of its venom so that he can make an antidote.(Omega Symbol). Finding solutions to problems within the problems themselves gives us an alignment to nature that unfolds the understanding of its deepest secrets.
High up on a mountain an eagle's nest. (Chandra Symbol). Ascending to a place of spiritual power, we are then able to see things more clearly for what they really are.
Fulfillment degree: Capricorn 6. A woman inventing magical perfumes. (Omega Symbol). We assimilate the wisdom of the secret text and then are able to invent methods to disseminate its vibrations.
An ancient gold scarab lying in the sand. (Chandra Symbol). When we realize our animal nature and are able to control its power without repressing or denying its existence, we find that we've retrieved a precious and wise part of ourselves that was previously lost.
It all depends on the filters desired. Meanings overlay meanings, all hiding each other. But he desired to know, to understand. Which spontaneously gave rise to the glasses that made everything invisible except for the meaning he was seeking. Because knowing required limiting, required a carving into reality that cut out that specific, exquisite shape he had always yearned for in his imagination.
