Phase 27. Silent Partner (Yus Resh Tav)
Angel: YERATEL (YEH-ra-TEL) Propagation of the Light
Leo 11. A man using both hands is writing several stories simultaneously. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Experimental
(Degree Angel: Harahel (HA-ra-HEL) Umbilical Cord, Intellectual Richness)
When you try to control anything, you find that you lose the power of being in the moment and true to yourself. You need to give up control and allow whatever needs to to flow out of you. This can be scary to do, and if you pull back in midstream and try to reassert control you’ll find yourself stuck in an endless loop. Trust in the deepest layer of your creative urges is the way out of the problem.
The Chandra symbol for this degree is “A boy removing a thorn from his foot.” Something is bothering you and you're trying to understand it. This may be something you're angry about, maybe something you can't stop thinking about. It's impeding your forward motion. There's a need to stop what you're doing and investigate it. The stopping and focusing on one thing of this symbol is the opposite of the Omega Symbol, where there is a moving forward and a multiple focus. To remove the thorn you may have to dig deeper. You may be writing all those stories in the Omega Symbol because you are trying to keep yourself so busy that you can avoid the pain of the thorn.
In this degree there is always something the person is very sensitive to, and a need to locate and understand that sensitivity. Something is wanting to come out of you the thorn of the Chandra Symbol and the stories of the Omega Symbol. So let them.
Pleiadian Symbol: In the jungle people and monkeys climbing and swinging on vines.
Azoth Symbol: A milk maid feeding her cows.
Seed degree: Leo 5. Through narrow winding streets a man is following a mysterious woman. (Omega Symbol). As we seek and more deeply find our shadow self we realize that our existence is not just one thing, but rather layers of things all happening simultaneously and beyond ultimately beyond the complete grasp of the rational mind.
A seemingly young man, but with gray hair. (Chandra Symbol). When we are able to see the inequalities between the various aspects of our development we become gradually more balanced, and capable of healing our own understanding by removing whatever false beliefs impede both it and our forward movement.
Fulfillment degree: Aquarius 11. A man clearing out his own aura. (Omega symbol). As we increasingly let go of control and let out the stories and dramas stored in our pain body we are imbued with an ever fresher and life-affirming vibrancy.
Crows eating the corn a farmer has sown. (Chandra Symbol). When we clear from ourselves the energies of hurt and anger we come to see how we are in conflict with nature and seek ways to harmonize with it more fully.
The eight pens tied to his fingers wave like branches, and even though the air is still in the bedroom where he lays, it is as if a breeze were moving his hands over the pages he fills with words, pens scraping against paper, like wind moving branches against a dark window, plots and descriptions and dialogues unwinding onto the page like balls of thread dropped out of nowhere.
Who is writing? he wonders, but only occasionally, for he's more entranced with the stories and visions themselves, as they find their way onto the pages, taking on bodies of ink, drying in the candlelight, page after page turning and filling with fresh words, tarnishing ever so slightly, softening to a silvery sheen at their first exposure to air.
Leo 12. In the basement of a house, a secret escape tunnel. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Sensitive
(Degree Angel: Mitzrael (MITS-ra-EL) Freedom, Internal Reparation)
When you grow tired of playing a particular role in life you need a way out of it, so that you may escape into the freedom of your eternal self. When you do so you find new strength and energy, that you can bring back with you to enrich yourself and the world. You can be a master of creative escapism, used therapeutically.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is, “The mouth of the Amazon River.” Your consciousness flows out into the universal consciousness. You merge with the sea of being. If you do not give up your ego with its limitations, you will suffer, but if you can let yourself be expansive, generous, and in rapport with creative intelligence you will find bliss. It simply requires faith in the workings of the universe and confidence in your ability to link to those workings.
Pleiadian Symbol: Wandering a lawn people watch the stars appearing.
Azoth Symbol: Golden teeth gleaming as a man laughs.
Seed degree: Leo 17. A giant squid sleeping in the ocean depths. (Omega Symbol). Desiring to be ourselves and to be able to inhabit a realm that is friendly to us we seek out means of both hiding and escaping from situations that don't support our integrity.
Elegant black women sitting on a porch and fanning themselves. (Chandra Symbol). Overcoming pretenses and transcending issues of power and control we eventually merge our own stream with that of the collective consciousness.
Fulfillment degree: Pisces 11. Three undines guarding a golden treasure at the bottom of a river. (Omega Symbol). Finding a way out of limitations and restrictions we seek out the realm of magic and the spiritual gifts it has to offer.
A high, crumbling wall. It is part of a ruin and covered with ivy. (Chandra Symbol). Letting go of our limited notions of ourselves we merge with the universal consciousness, which creates in us an acceptance of life as it is, and of the passing of time, and a willingness to use our own past and memories as a support for our life in the present.
Secret journeys to destinies unknown. He never wondered how the tunnels got there, arched and bricked and always clean and going to unimaginably distant places. Sometimes he heard waters above him, and the songs of whales and knew he was traveling under a sea – which would explain the tunnel's having descended for miles and miles, after which he would then reascend, sometimes into cities, ancient ones abandoned in impenetrable jungles or maybe cities of the future sprouting thousands of skyscrapers like weeds in a meadow.
The underground journeys never tired him. It was only after he returned that an unendurable weariness overcame him, lying in his bed, yearning to delve again back into the ground.
Leo 13. Hidden passages in a house. Over time, their secret has been forgotten. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Receptive
(Degree Angel: Umabel (OO-ma-BEL) Water, Affinity and Friendship)
You have in you the means to surprise other people, and to do so in such a way that can open them up to a greater reality and get a clearer perception of the vastness of their inner being. You are especially perceptive when it comes to seeing how people are put together and how they hide from themselves. Your revelations can help them to rediscover lost parts of themselves.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A man painting scenes on a ceiling” Looking all the time at the walls, we forget the ceiling – until we look up, just as we forgot the hidden passages of the Omega Symbol. The painting on the ceiling creates the illusion of space and thereby overcomes the limitations and confinements of the roof and ceiling, just as the hidden passages overcome the limitations imposed by the more commonly used and obvious passages in the house. This degree is about creating more space, more possibilities, more options, finding new ways, knowing there are no enduring limits to what may happen or be accomplished. Talents and abilities abound, and this person knows they don't just abound in oneself, but are also in everyone else, albeit often latent, hidden, or denied.
Pleiadian Symbol: An old man on a porch which looks out over a stormy sea.
Azoth Symbol: An enlightened one experiencing the eternal absolute underlying the ever-changing phenomena of physical existence.
Seed degree: Leo 29. A tiny poisonous frog with a brightly colored body. (Omega Symbol). Desiring to ward off whatever is threatening to us we eventually come to realize that the best way to do this is to retrieve and reintegrate the lost parts of our being from which we have become cut off.
A broken sword. (Chandra Symbol). Feeling our own powerlessness we seek empowerment from connection with higher powers.
Fulfillment degree: Aries 12. Before the end of a movie a man leaves the theater. (Omega Symbol). Finding and reintegrating those lost parts of ourselves we find we are no longer attached to the stories we have been telling ourselves to attempt to explain and justify who we are.
An old woman hears the stars talking to her at night. (Chandra Symbol). Continually turning our attention to higher realities we eventually are able to communicate directly with them.
In her little cottage one day she happen to press on a certain stone in the pantry which opened a door to a grand marble stairway lined with candelabras and pedastaled statues and liveried servants awaiting her commands. So she put on her best dress and lifting her skirts ascended the first flight, where a great sunburst of stained glass shone on the landing.
Turning the corner, and completing her ascent she found herself in her little bedroom with its rug of rags, and a bunch of wildflowers on the nightstand by her bed, with its patched coverlet, and a linden tree blooming, just outside the window.
The next day, when she pressed the stone to see the staircase once again, she found only a narrow hallway filled with cobwebs.
Leo 14. Toward the center of a galaxy, the concentration of stars becomes denser and
denser. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Responsible
(Degree Angel: Iah-hel (EE-a-HEL) Parent – Teacher not Preacher, Desire to Know)
You’re aware that angels are everywhere – whether you call them that or not. You might just think of these energies as goodness, or beauty, or joy. Conscious of it or not, you are a messenger for the angels, and all you have to do is to give into it, let it happen, and above all keep at it, even if at times your messages are heard only faintly or not at all.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Fields of jasmine flowers.” Jasmine flowers enhance self-esteem as well as physical and sensual attraction, and is administered homeopathically to bring back energy. The density of the stars in the Omega Symbol are like the density of the jasmine blossoms in the fields. The truth of this degree is that we all have each other as great resources of learning, wisdom, joy and delight. And since we become what we focus on, all we need to do is keep focusing on the loving connections that are everywhere around us.
This is a Scorpio degree of Leo, and hence signifies the regenerative powers inherent in allowing our being to express the spiritual light.
Pleiadian Symbol: Tiny balls of multicolored lights flickering through a forest.
Azoth Symbol: Mist condensing on wildflowers.
Seed degree: Virgo 11. The smell of ancient perfume as an Egyptian tomb is opened. (Omega Symbol). To be able to intuitively grasp the essence of things and to deeply tap into the past leads us to an ability to connect with all the various intelligences of the universe.
A four-year-old girl dressed as a nurse. (Chandra Symbol). The innocent desire to be of service in helping to heal the world proliferates a vibration of joy and strength all around one.
Fulfillment degree: Taurus 12. A man making talismans for protection. (Omega Symbol). Tapping in to all the positive energies of the universe we are impelled to find a means to use them to defend ourselves from the forces of darkness and chaos.
A very old elephant. (Chandra Symbol). Continuing to immerse ourselves in joy and spiritual certainty, we eventually accumulate a great store of wisdom, power, and patience.
The galaxy bloomed, throwing forth its pollen of light. For many centuries he stood gazing in space, watching the galaxy unfold as it swirled. To witness such a garden took great patience, and cost much time, which he could have spent living on one planet or another, inventing other lives and loves for himself. But he felt all the eons were well worth watching this entertainment.
Moving closer he found the stars falling around him like snow, the blizzard of light growing denser as the black hole at the galaxy's center drew him into itself, reducing him as he sped toward it, to an infinitely tiny seed of ecstasy.
Leo 15. An ancient text, long kept secret, is revealed to the public. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Inspired
(Degree Angel: Anauel (a-NA-oo-EL) Appreciation, Perception of Unity)
You are the ancient text – something valuable and special, something that people can admire, marvel at, and learn from. It’s important, though, to not get too bound up in outer accolades – for the glory that you are can, like a match, ignite the glory in other people, uplift them and attune them to their spiritual self. That is your highest task.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A woman with many different colored rings on her fingers.” Here is wealth and abundance, a tremendous potentiality. This is a Gemini degree, hence the image of hands. Gemini is a sign of giving and helpfulness, as well as diversity. What you do with what you have to give is the key to your success. If your primary focus is on gaining attention and feeding your own ego, you will weaken the power of your gifts. If you refine and perfect your abilities and focus on the needs of others, you will, in the long run generate even more wealth and abundance for you. This is the essence of the ancient wisdom revealed in the Omega Symbol.
Pleiadian Symbol: A play produced at a castle featuring lost travelers encountering denizens of a dark wood.
Azoth Symbol: An engineer's tools neatly arranged.
Seed degree: Virgo 23. A library is burning. A man therein continues to read. (Omega Symbol). Focusing on our personal intentions and being unfazed by outer circumstances and their demands, we eventually come to profound realizations which we have arisen because we have prepared ourselves for them.
Giant cacti blooming in the desert. (Chandra Symbol). In our desire to create beauty in a realm of desolation we gather to ourselves those energies which will uplift and inspire both ourselves and others.
Fulfillment degree: Gemini 12. A single tree growing many different types of fruits. (Omega Symbol). When new wisdom is revealed we realize that it is simply a new expression of the old, eternal wisdom, dressed in no clothes so that we may achieve a deeper appreciation of it.
Many huge urns filled with wheat. (Chandra Symbol). Appreciating the beauty of higher and eternal realities impels us to find a means of translating them into a form that can be consumed as food in the physical world.
Many people bought a copy of the recently revealed text and read it, anxious to find new, astounding revelations therein. Almost all were perplexed by the the words, which seemed more like a curtain than a revelation – a curtain that hid something within – something they could sense, but that remained persistently elusive in their minds.
Like a stone polished by a river the text was smooth, softly reflecting the light surrounding it, and seemed, well, usual, average, common – like just any other stone the river had left behind.
Eventually most forgot the text, the original put to sleep in the archives, the copies migrating to attics and used book shops. Such is the fate of galaxies, which the eye reduces to grains of invisible dust in the night sky.
