Phase 15. Long-Range Vision (Hey Resh Yud)
Angel: HARIEL (HA-ree-EL) Purification
Gemini 11. Rain falling on the ocean. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Experimental
(Degree Angel: Haiyael (HA-ee-ya-EL) Prophecy and Parallel Universes, Divine Warrior/Weaponry)
The earth plane is made up of many little parts, which can often seem fragmented and chaotic. You understand innately, though, how all is eventually absorbed into a grand scheme – the play of creative intelligence. You have the ability to look beneath surface ideas and communications into the deeper messages always there beneath every aspect of life.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A stag with golden horns.” Each drop of rain in the Omega Symbol becomes one with all others through merging with the sea. The stag has golden antlers, gold being the metal of the Sun and so the stag merges its highest center, its crown chakra, with the Solar power. This is a degree of tapping into higher levels of awareness as well as the depths of universal consciousness. The question is, what are you going to do with all this richness of awareness that you possess? It is waiting to be used for the lights purposes of healing and the spreading of love and joy – and its up to you to form the vessel of specifics through which to instrument this.
Pleiadian Symbol: Right before the museum closes a man hides in a painting.
Azoth Symbol: A woman plunges into a river and absorbs its renewing spirit.
Seed degree: Leo 3. Walking down the street, a man passes his double. (Omega Symbol). Startled by a vivid perception of ourselves, we become aware that underlying our ephemeral separateness and uniqueness we are an eternal part of universal consciousness.
A rickshaw. (Chandra Symbol). Going so many places and assimilating so many experience, our head becomes heavy with the gold of meaning.
Fulfillment degree: Aquarius 6. Seeing a stone lion in a museum, a young girl asks her parents if they are at the zoo. (Omega Symbol). Merging with the source of life we come to see the aspects of our life that lack aliveness and/or which have becoming overly rigid or predictable, and are able to re-imbue those with new vibrancy.
A gardener with just one leg. (Chandra Symbol). Filled with glorious imaginings, we dedicate ourselves to doing the work it takes to fulfill our vision – no matter how difficult.
Each drop of water dies as it merges with the ocean, the soft shock of its dying awakening memories of other fallings from other skies, and awareness of all other drops of past and future dying their own deaths, each drop magnifying the death of each other. And through the falling rain the ocean echoes with a deep, barely audible sigh, a sigh of pleasure as the rain's myriad deaths fill it ever fuller.
Gemini 12. A single tree growing many different types of fruits. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Sensitive
(Degree Angel: Mumiah (MOO-mee-YAH) Spiritual Cleansing, Endings and Rebirth)
A single idea may be expressed in many different ways, and if we can’t understand it in one context, it will come back to us in another form until we get it. You have this ability to mutate your form of expression giving people multiple options and angles from which to understand what you’re saying, until it be comes completely vivid.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Many huge urns filled with wheat.” Great abundance appears in both of these symbols. The only real danger here is to undervalue what is possessed, to take it to lightly, to not use it, or to misuse it. Otherwise, this is a degree of tremendous prosperity that may be shared with the world. What is needed is to recognize this, and then find a way to distribute it to those in need.
Pleiadian Symbol: An imp is causing all sorts of misprints in a book.
Azoth Symbol: People in a space ship on the verge of beginning a journey to another world.
Seed degree: Leo 15. An ancient text, long kept secret, is revealed to the public. (Omega Symbol). New revelations give birth to a wide array of different interpretations and possibilities.
A woman with many different colored rings on her fingers. (Chandra Symbol). Feeding the spirit with beauty and exalted energy imbues us with the consciousness of prosperity, which draws to us that which will satisfy our physical needs.
Fulfillment degree: Pisces 6. Crystals deep in the earth aware of the sunshine above. (Omega symbol). Realizing that wisdom may manifest in so many different forms, our spirit senses the spiritual light hidden by the illusions of the physical world.
An Inca chief wearing many emeralds. (Chandra Symbol). Realizing how much we have to give we recognize our own importance (beyond our ego's selfish need to feel important) and for the sake of helping others focus on forming the connections with people that will allow us to share what we have. (Note: Emerald is the gem of the planet Mercury in Indian astrology, Mercury being the planet of communication and connection).
Trees are, by nature sleepers,and in the sleep of their long lives they dream leaves and fruits which they shed as they fall back asleep, only to wake again to more dreams of leafing and fruition.
Except for the tree that woke and realized that in waking it might consciously dream whatever it desired. And so it began to dream of everything it could conceive. It became, itself, in its waking, the essence of all dreams. And such is how it became the meeting place of the dreams of all trees.
Gemini 13. With each breath another new and unknown smell is detected. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Receptive
(Degree Angel: VEHUIAH (vay-HOO-ee-YAH) Time Travel, Will and New Beginnings)
Every single thing we encounter in life has many implications, many layers and meanings. You are capable of seeing things in depth, and of always looking at the world with fresh eyes. Because of this you can help people overcome the dreariness and boredom of life and see that they live in a world of strangeness, enchantment, and wonder.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Garlic hung at the window for protection.” Garlic, of course, is the traditional protection against vampires, and so this degree is about protecting oneself form any forces that might seek to dissipate or drain one's energy.
These two symbols are complementary opposites – the Omega Symbol signifies being open to the multifarious energies surrounding oneself, whereas the Chandra Symbol isolates and protects the self from parasitic influences. We have to first expose ourselves to the whole of life before we can be aware of what we wish to connect with and what we wish to be separated from. This degree signifies both of those processes.
Plieadian Symbol: A man and his piano levitate as he performs a rhapsody.
Azoth Symbol: A collection of coins and medals from a people who mysteriously disappeared.
Seed degree: Leo 27. A man draws a picture on the surface of a lake. (Omega Symbol). When we communicate with our own emotional self, we enter into the vibration of the astral plane, where everything is always changing, flowing and manifesting in a new way – like the patterns in moving water.
A beaded curtain. (Chandra Symbol). Knowing that we can protect ourselves from energies which might harm us, our barriers can then become flexible so as to allow in those influences which harmonize with us.
Fulfillment degree: Aries 7. An old man admiring a portrait of himself as a youth. (Omega Symbol). The ever-changing manifestations of consciousness allow us to appreciate the process of our own evolution.
A double headed eagle,the heads face in opposite directions.(Chandra Symbol). When we are able to protect ourselves from those forces which might vampirize us, we come into a realization of our own power, and of both the potentially positive and negative uses of it.
Symphonies of the nose, downloaded with each breath. And as he continued to read the ever-changing smells he realized he had entered the perfumer's library. Here were stored the scents of summer evenings, moonlit gardens, and spring pageants, where a million petals had rained and scattered. And here also were even the odors of back alleys with their drifts of refuse, for even the rotten notes of death and decay might be faintly used by the master to sharpen the edge of a fragrant summer rose. It was curious and engaging reading these invisible books that suddenly appeared and disappeared, and in which he encountered many strange and unfamiliar words that tickled his nose as it attempted to pronounce them.
Gemini 14. The sound of drumming brings everyone into the present. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Responsible
(Degree Angel: JELIEL (Jay-lee-EL) Recapturing the Sparks, Love and Wisdom)
You’re always aware of what’s going wrong with communication – what’s not getting through, and you can be very persistent in continuing to try to hear others and make yourself understood. Steadily you seek out the blockages to communication and try to understand them, and as you do your connectedness becomes richer, stronger, and progressively more healing to both yourself and others.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A sorcerer materializes an amethyst cross.” The cross signifies the present moment – one of the crosses lines symbolizing the past and the other the future, and where they cross being the NOW. The amethyst signifies clarity of mind. In the Omega symbol the sound of the drumming brings clarity of mind GRADUALLY, whereas in the Chandra Symbol the clarity of mind happens instantaneously. Either way it happens, this symbol can wake others up, and help them to see everything in a fresher, clearer light by merging with the present moment, which is the place of freedom, power, and release.
Pleiadian Symbol: Deep in a cave on the moon a dreamer dreams of prehistoric jungles.
Azoth Symbol: Journeyers trekking through mountain snow.
Seed degree: Virgo 9. In a freshly plowed filled, a man searching for arrowheads. (Omega Symbol). Searching avidly for what is outside ourselves we either find it or we don't, but either way we are eventually led to an awareness of the here and now.
A man mixing cement. (Chandra Symbol). As we continue to engage in the arduous task of putting things together, we eventually come to realize that through our intent and creative visualization we can bring into reality whatever we so desire.
Fulfillment degree: Taurus 7. A man cleansing his aura with pink light. (Omega Symbol). To come into the present is to always find a release through the healing and renewing power of love.
A large ruby inscribed with a prayer. (Chandra Symbol). The word “amethyst” means in Greek “not drunk,” that is alert and clear. Manifesting alertness and clarity we find purpose (Ruby=Sun=purpose) that is blessed by our positive intent.
They rode on a wave of rhythm that carried them forward. It excited them, the expectation that it had to come to somewhere, to find a destination that it seemed inevitably compelled toward. The patterns of the rhythm created a wake of memory behind them and a vista of probability ahead. But the wakes and the vistas, where did they meet?
And then one of them who listened instantly realized without warning that the destination had been there all along, had never been left, had always been the silence out of which, and into which, the rhythm streamed -- the present's black hole, infinite at the center of time's whirling galaxy.
Gemini 15. A magician’s tower looms above the surrounding landscape. (Omega Symbol)Transforming/Inspired
(Degree Angel: SITAEL (SIT-ah-EL) Miracle Making, Construction of Universe/Worlds)
You’re always aware of what’s missing in communication, of what is being left out, implied, or avoided due to fear or bias. You are always trying to get a broader, wider perspective on communication, by bringing in just the right notes and energies to it to open it up further and bring in the most needed messages from spirit.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “People gathering salt from the ocean.” Water flows to the lowest level, and salt is a mineral used for grounding. The magician's tower rises up above the surrounding land. This degree seeks, through looking high, far, and deep, that which is essential, that which connects us all at core, so that our communication may be based on an awareness of what unites us in seeking the common goal of enlightenment. It is then that the exchange of ideas clarifies, becomes harmonious and meaningful and rises above the illusions of separation and conflict.
Pleiadian Symbol: Words from a conversation drift up into the sky and are carried away by winds.
Azoth Symbol: Drummers creating complex overlays of rhythms.
Seed degree: Virgo 21. A geologist studying bands of rock in a cliff. (Omega Symbol). Realizing the accumulated meanings of the past we are able to rise above them and gain an expanded overview of how the spiritual realities create and interact with our physical reality.
Dark river and distant bell. (Chandra Symbol). Continuing to flow through time we sense certain forces to which we are attuned calling to us, and are able, eventually to see and understand those forces in a deeper, clearer way. Or, put another way: At first we may follow our bliss only uncertainly and darkly, but if we continue faithfully to follow it, we connect eventually to universal consciousness by coming into a deep understanding of who we really are.
Fulfillment degree: Gemini 7. Poetry which sounds beautiful but makes no logical sense. (Omega symbol). When we allow ourselves to build our own tower of magic from which to view the world, we grow into being able to appreciate the mystery of beauty without requiring any explanations in which to keep it caged.
A table comes to life and runs away. (Chandra Symbol). When we come to realize that our physical life is actually a distillation of our emotional body, we perceive that all matter is alive, and that everything is always surprising when limiting assumptions are let go of.
His tower seemed precariously high, for it wasn't a common architecture that held it together, but a glue made of clouds. It had no stairs – he simply dreamed his way to the top when he wished to view the surrounding landscape. And instead of doors the portals were hung with special curtains the sylphs had woven for him, curtains which held in the warmth of winter fires, and in summer maintained a cave-like coolness.
A tower to view the forest's green clouds below. A tower to touch the higher winds that passed.
