(157) Omega/Chandra Symbols: Aquarius 6 - 10

Phase 62. Parent-Teacher not Preacher (Yud Hey Hey )

Angel: IAH-HEL (EE-a-HEL) Desire to Know

Aquarius 6. Seeing a stone lion in a museum, a young girl asks her parents if they are at the zoo. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Experimental

(Degree Angel: CALIEL (KA-lee-EL) Fertility, Justice)

The question here is, in what way does life mirror art? This degree desires to make art and life one, which means that all endeavors become art, and that all human activities cease to be mechanical and take on a freshness and aliveness that is ever renewed through the creative spirit. It,s all about inviting the spiritual light into the physical world.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A gardener with just one leg.” The gardener is slows down on the one hand, but has become at least partially disencumbered from being tied to the earth, so that there is room for cosmic forces to enter into the garden. This degree brings something new and unusual to whatever it works with. It opens up systems that have been formerly closed so that exciting and beautiful energies may come through. And through nurturing the garden and bringing it to perfection the self is once again made whole.

Pleiadian Symbol: A ritual drama involving light, music, and stories of the gods.

Azoth Symbol: Beings of high evolution doing what they can to help humanity.

Seed degree: Gemini 11.Rain falling on the ocean. (Omega Symbol). The individual becoming re-absorbed into the universal allows a reconnection with hitherto unsuspected possibilities.

A stag with golden horns. (Chandra Symbol). To carry thoughts of what is eternally beautiful and enduring inspires us to continue in our process of creating.

Fulfillment degree: Virgo 26. Under the full moon a sagging balcony. (Omega Symbol). The realization of how we are limited and confined tunes us in to the support we need.

An old man counting gold coins. (Chandra Symbol). The garden grows into a depository of accumulated riches piled up for those who need them.

Aquarius 7. Someone turns back and looks again: the mountain has disappeared. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Sensitive

(Degree Angel: LEUVIAH (LOO-vee-YAH) Dialing God, Expansive Intelligence/Fruition)

What has seemed so difficult and insurmountable can suddenly vanish. It depends on whether we need it or not, and when we decide we don't, we become free of it. Even the most deeply entrenched beliefs and ways of being are capable of being changed, when we are truly ready to let go of them. It all depends on focus and belief.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A woman burning a book on black magic.” Here is an attempt to protect others from negativity by attempting to deny or ignore it. This degree has strong attitudes concerning what is wrong and right. One of the best results of this is that it provokes others to consider more deeply such moral questions. In the end, though, must come the realization that even negativity can be a tool for evolution.

Pleiadian Symbol: A baby dragon pecks its way out of an egg.

Azoth Symbol: As they descend, mountain streams are finding each other.

Seed degree: Gemini 23. A man attuning to the vibrations of a myriad of different flowers. (Omega Symbol). Realizing how easy the access is to all the forces of the universe, the domination of materiality and its obstructions disappears.

A tunnel created by trees. (Chandra Symbol). Sensing how we are sheltered as we travel our path, we wish to shelter others.

Fulfillment degree: Libra 26.Down the side of a mountain, a stream cascading for hundreds of feet. (Omega Symbol). Letting to of our urge to ascend to the heights we come to realize the joy and value of falling.

A Gypsy cart with a campfire nearby. (Chandra Symbol). After becoming caught in the midst of conflicting concepts and abstractions we come home to something simple and warm.

Aquarius 8. A man experiences much pain and discomfort as wings sprout on his back. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Receptive

(Degree Angel: PAHALIAH (pa-HA-lee-YAH) Victory Over Addictions, Redemption)

The letting go of any personal limitations can be difficult, and can create fear. This degree believes without reservation that people are capable of change, and can be very encouraging of the process of them doing so, no matter how hard it is. To enter into a new way of being requires new abilities and skills, and this degree has a clear sensing of what these are and how to develop them.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A book. The words in it keep changing.” When you quit expecting life to be consistent, everything becomes more interesting. This degree can look at the same thing again and again and each time see something different. This is much truer to how things really are. Its multiple interpretations, when shared, can help others to be more open-minded and flexible in their assessments.

Pleiadian Symbol: A master clothing designer's creations displayed.

Azoth Symbol: Old problems brought up and re-assessed.

Seed degree: Cancer 5.A statue of ice sitting in the desert. It doesn't melt. (Omega Symbol). When we come to a point of deep coolness and stillness we find in ourselves the ability to transcend the physical.

A trap door under a rug. (Chandra Symbol). Discovering the hidden ways out of everything, we realize that life is a process of continual change.

Fulfillment degree: Scorpio 26.A witch dressed in black. Her clothes are turning white. (Omega Symbol). Growing more and more into our true self we find our identity filling with light.

A she-wolf. Her udders full of milk. (Chandra Symbol). When so many possibilities are realized we realize also the richness we have which can be used to nurture others.

Aquarius 9. A medieval cathedral built on the site of an ancient pagan temple. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Responsible

(Degree Angel: NELCHAEL (NEL-ka-EL) Eradicate Plague, Ardent Desire to Learn)

New ideas so often incorporate old ones, and are often nothing more than a new expression of what has come before. This degree realizes this, and rather than being intent on preserving the older tradition, or supporting its new manifestation, it focuses on the fostering of timeless and boundless wisdom, which it desires to embrace to matter what the outer form.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Violets blooming by the barred windows of a dungeon.” This symbol is about making the best of things, about seeing spiritual beauty in whatever situation we're in. There is a purpose to all limitations and as we come to accept both the limitations and what they have to offer us we are eventually released. It is a matter of coming to identify with the violets rather than the prisoner.

Pleiadian Symbol: A mystic symbol comes to life as a multicolored serpent
Azoth Symbol: A rainbow is feeding its colors to a garden.

Seed degree: Cancer 17.A man's shadow moving independently of him. (Omega Symbol). The shadow self takes on a life of its own and is always finding new forms in which to manifest.

A woman working busily at a spinning wheel. (Chandra Symbol).

Fulfillment degree: Sagittarius 26.A candle mysteriously undisturbed by wind. (Omega Symbol). Through all mutations and transformations the light remains steady.

Climbing the steps of the Pyramid of the Sun. (Chandra Symbol). Each phase of the journey carries us higher.

Aquarius 10. A mechanical man is smiling and nodding “yes.” (Omega symbol) Interacting/Inspired

(Degree Angel: YEIAYEL (YAY-ah-YEL) Stop Fetal Attraction, Fame, Renown)

Everything in reality is here because someone said “yes” to it, which is what this degree realizes. And so much of our “yessing” has been of a mechanical, unconscious mindless nature. This degree wants to wake people up so they will know they are not robots, that they don't need to say “yes” to whatever they don't want, and that when you embrace aliveness you find the capacity to change.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A black raven with a bright red head.” This degree has clear perceptions about what needs to be done, what needs to come about. It senses the urgings of spirit, and is willing to do whatever it has to, to allow the force of evolution to express itself. So often the future is resisted because it seems dark and foreboding, but the energy of this degree says “lets get on with it,” and can always figure out a way to do so, no matter now stuck or deeply rutted the situation has become.

Pleiadian Symbol: A flower wilts, shrinks, and disappears.

Azoth Symbol: A man creating an intricate stained glass window.

Seed degree: Cancer 29.A falling leaf gets caught in a spider's web. (Omega Symbol). Realizing where we are stuck we are then able to free ourselves from those energies we have unconsciously given our assent to.

A large school of baby fish swimming in a group (Chandra Symbol). We are able to eventually transcend the automatic responses of group consciousness by tuning in to the calling of higher consciousness.

Fulfillment degree: Capricorn 26.A castle made of clouds appears at sunset. (Omega Symbol). Freeing ourselves from automatic responses we open up to the freedom of creative fantasizing.

A solitary grave in the midst of a corn field. (Chandra Symbol). Following evolutions call we instinctively and spontaneously seek out those places which need healing and releasing.

(156) Omega/Chandra Symbols: Aquarius 1 - 5

Phase 61. Water (Vav Mem Bet)

Angel: UMABEL (OO-ma-BEL) Affinity and Friendship

Aquarius 1. Deciding to die, a vampire walks into the sunlight. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Experimental

(Degree Angel: YEZALEL (YAY-za-LEL) Heaven on Earth, Fidelity, Loyalty, and Allegiance)

This degree is about the sacrificing of personal desires to a higher purpose. When a way of life has worn itself out, its time for a change. The energy of this degree is about overcoming the fear of change, and letting go of old patterns. It wants to bring whatever is hidden to light, and to find a way to fulfill true spiritual needs.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A two-headed calf.” We all have two selves – the conscious, objective self and the unconscious, or feeling self. Or, on an other level, (as Eckhard Tolle describes it), the true self and the pain body. This degree recognizes the divisions that exist within the self, as well as the need to acknowledge and respect all the various aspects of one's being. Whatever parts of ourselves we reject we inevitably come into conflict with, and the only way to resolve this conflict is to reach across our inner divisions and accept every aspect of who we are.

This degree carries the message that completely opposite ideas can peacefully co-exist, and actually have the potential to enhance and clarify each other.

Pleiadian Symbol: In the desert a way station to comfort travelers.

Azoth Symbol: Little scavengers seeking morsels.

Seed degree: Aries 11.A hospital for birds. (Omega Symbol). The healing of our hopes allows us to expose all inner shadows to the spiritual light.

Sunlight illuminating dust in the air. (Chandra Symbol). Perceiving the complexity and uncertainty of the physical world gives us a basis for perceiving dualities and dichotomies at work everywhere.

Fulfillment degree: Aries 26. A man sitting at the bottom of a crater. (Omega Symbol). Clearing inner darkness we then become able to be focused and receptive.

The man in the moon smiling. (Chandra Symbol). Completely accepting the dualistic nature of our existence brings peace and fulfillment to our emotional self.

Aquarius 2. An alchemist trying to capture a spirit in a forest. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Sensitive

(Degree Angel: MEBAHEL (May-ba-HEL) Farewell to Arms, Truth, Liberty, and Justice)

This degree is always looking for help in accomplishing whatever project in which it is currently involved, and seeks especially to enlist the support of natural forces. It understands that those forces are at work everywhere, including in each and every one of us. And so it calls out to the pure and natural energies of its fellow humans to work with them in the process of evolutionary change.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A woman strolling in a garden. She is unaware that she is being watched by elves.” The power of nature is all around us and within us, and even though we may not experience it directly we have the potential of tuning into it psychically and deriving immense knowledge and support from it. This degree is aware of the illusive nature of the forces that come together to create our world. It is seeking to contact those forces, but knows instinctively that to do so will take patience, and will require a gentle melding with those energies. By letting go of desires and agendas one can find the whole world ready and waiting to assist one's spiritual growth.

The Omega symbol shows the more aggressive side of the degree, but alludes to the truth that even when this attempt to capture knowledge is overt, it still requires inspiration and openness to the possibilities of the moment.

Pleiadian Symbol: From a blue sky a torrent of rain suddenly begins to fall.

Azoth Symbol: Waking in the night a man realizes a solution to a problem.

Seed degree: Aries 23. A painting with countless layers of paint. (Omega Symbol). Refining, reworking and revising leads to the possibility of capturing the essence of a thing.

A bottle labeled “drink me.” (Chandra Symbol). Through being open to allowing ourselves to change we open to the possibility of entering new realms of reality.

Fulfillment degree: Taurus 26. All over the city, words on scraps of paper flowing through the sewers. (Omega Symbol). When the spirit is captured, so much mental baggage can be let go of.

Grotesque rocks in a sand garden. (Chandra Symbol). Attuning to the spirits of nature we come to appreciate how individualized and unique it is in every aspect.

Aquarius 3. A man in a boat wakes up just in time to avoid a waterfall. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Receptive

(Degree Angel: HARIEL (HA-ree-EL) Long-Range Vision, Purification)

This degree has the ability to be in tune with what is coming – to feel the echoes of future events in the present. It can know when any course that is being followed needs to be changed. It has much insight into the patterns, routines and taken-for-granted programs that people fall into without being aware of their potentially destructive effects, and senses when and how to help others wake up.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A vast ornate Hindu temple depicting hundreds of gods.” Since God is everything, God is both a singularity and a plurality. This degree deeply senses that the universe is a friendly place, a place that is here to help us, and that God is always willing to find, when needed a new manifestation of him/herself to meet whatever needs may arise. The universe is playful, generous and infinitely resourceful, and we also have it in ourselves to be these things.

Pleiadian Symbol: A shipwrecked sailor washes up on a tropical island.

Azoth Symbol: Journeyers reaching a vista overlooking a forested valley.

Seed degree: Taurus 5. In a faint light, a map's coastlines are vague. (Omega Symbol). Allowing ourselves to lose our focus for a time allows us to come back into focus and see more clear what needs to be done.

Tiny porcelain figures of people. (Chandra Symbol). The recognition of unique differences of individuals becomes a basis for seeing the diversity of cosmic forces at play in the universe.

Fulfillment degree: Gemini 26. A man cutting the limb of a persimmon tree to make a wand. (Omega Symbol). As we learn to protect ourselves by meeting the needs of the moment, we grow gradually into the ability to take charge of our own destiny.

A cave with carved walls. It is an ancient temple. (Chandra Symbol). As we perceive more and more the vastness of our outer world, we come to realize that it is a reflection of our inner vastness.

Aquarius 4. After a long journey the source of a sacred river is found. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Responsible

(Degee Angel: HAKAMIAH (he-KE-mee-YAH) Dumping Depression, Loyalty)

This degree has the power to trace anything backwards to understand its source. Other people who engage in this process often don't go far enough, but this degree is intent on origins, and will continually look under anything found to seek its cause and source of support. The highest result of this is the complete cleaning out of negative karmas by clearing them at the root.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Many fireflies at dusk.” The dark may be vast and engulfing, but the light is always there to help us let go of doubt and uncertainty and know we have the power to overcome any and all challenges. This degree is about little, seemingly insignificant things serving as lights, and more importantly about the way our light calls to the light of others, creating mutual enhancement and encouragement and thereb helping us all to always remember who we really are.

Pleiadian Symbol: People lined up to receive hugs from a holy woman.

Azoth Symbol: The crying of gulls over the ocean.

Seed degree: Taurus 17. A book patiently waiting to spill forth its vast and profound knowledge. (Omega Symbol). The book's knowledge flowing forth is the sacred river, whose source we eventually find is ourselves.

A pomegranate broken open. (Chandra Symbol). The possibilities we perceive are seeds of potential that light our path – like fireflies.

Fulfillment degree: Cancer 26. Sounds of laughter coming from many different directions in the forest. (Omega Symbol). To contact the source of the sacred river causes nature to rejoice.

Pastry makers. (Chandra Symbol). The beauty of the fireflies' tiny lights in darkness urges us to create smalls beauties and joys with which to enhance and light the lives of others.

Aquarius 5. Gradually the wind unearths a temple buried in the sand. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Inspired

(Degree Angel: LAVIAH (LAH-vee-YAH) Great Escape, Revelation)

Thought processes can obscure knowledge by twisting it, misreading it, and shifting focus away from what is most important. This degree senses the profound wisdom to be found everywhere, if one can just clear away the debris of meaningless details and ignorance that have buried it. It seeks the purity of divine essence amidst the fogs of negativity, and its persistence finds it, eventually.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Humans worshiping an obese nature goddess.” This degree deeply believes in the abundance of nature, and knows that when we allow ourselves to be receptive to what life is offering us, we can draw to ourselves all that we need. What enhances and supports this process most is sharing this attentiveness to the forces of nature with others. This is what helps us to get back to pure spirituality, and unearths the temple of the Omega Symbol.

Pleiadian Symbol: Many generations of a family speaking to each other across time.

Azoth Symbol: Archives which no one has looked into for many years.

Seed degree: Taurus 29.A man reaches out to touch a marble statue. He feels it smiling. (Omega Symbol). When we acknowledge what we've created we come back into re-atunement with our spiritual self.

A man amuses himself by drawing strange shapes. (Chandra Symbol). Creative experimentation accesses the endless abundance of the divine mother.

Fulfillment degree: Leo 26. In a bookstore, a chance meeting of long lost friends. (Omega Symbol). As we reconnect with spirit all positive and life supporting relationships are brought back into focus.

(155) Omega/Chandra Symbols: Capricorn 26 - 30

Phase 60. Freedom (Mem Zadik Resh)

Angel: MITZRAEL (MITS-re-EL) Internal Reparation

Capricorn 26. A castle made of clouds appears at sunset. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Experimental

(Degree Angel: CAHETEL (KA-heh-TEL) Defusing Negative Energy, Divine Blessings)

This degree senses the universe continually giving it messages, and realizes that if these are not paid attention to they might easily be lost. Life is fragile and needs to be acutely observed as it passes if one is to gain true and deep understanding. What this degree sees is very different from what others see, and its insights can be very helpful to others, for they provide a perspective that is unique and visionary.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A solitary grave in the midst of a cornfield.” Energies of the past may be hidden, but they are lingering. This degree senses what has been forgotten and what needs to be remembered. These memories may be from long ago, in the remote past – other lifetimes, but if we allow ourselves to go there, we find the journey isn't long – we drop into them, for they are not far away – we carrying them in our being. And when the castle of the Omega Symbol appears to us and invites us to enter, we go there and find a means of untying another knot, thereby freeing ourselves more, and allowing the castle, which seemed so forbidding, to evaporate.

Pleiadian Symbol: Tadpoles playing with naiads.

Azoth Symbol: A man is wandering through a map of the universe.

Seed degree: Aquarius 10.A mechanical man smiling and nodding “yes.” (Omega Symbol). We become aware of all those things which we are unconsciously and mechanically taking for granted, and, waking up from these things, we open up to a fabulous realm of imagination where energies quickly form and change.

A black raven with a bright read head. (Chandra Symbol). We become enthusiastic for change and for bringing new energies into the world, and this allows us to acknowledge what has been, and let it be food for the coming cycle.

Fulfillment degree: Scorpio 25. A composer of simple melodies. (Omega Symbol). The fleeting softness of the imagination inspires us to express our hearts with a simple joy that all can relate to.

A doctor experimenting on himself with new drugs. (Chandra Symbol). When we allow the past to be consumed by the creative energies of the present we are inspired to invent new ways to meet the challenges of life.

Capricorn 27. A group of fish at the edge of a pool. They are looking up at someone. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Sensitive

(Degree Angel: HAZIEL (HA-zee-EL) Angelic Influences, Divine Mercy and Forgiveness)

This degree has the ability to look beyond its own frame of reference into other realities and planes of existence. It has a patient, receptive quality, and senses that answers are all around it, waiting to be had if one can only be receptive and make within oneself an empty space in which to receive the knowledge. It manifests a quiet inspiration that can access universal wisdom in a pure form.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A long mirrored hallway lit with candles.” The mirrors and candles allow us to see where we are going, and this degree has a gift for both pointing out the way, and helping everyone to get their bearings more clearly. It knows that no one stays any place for long – unless they need to, and even though they may feel stuck somewhere, they're actually subconsciously loitering and don't know it. And even when we feel lonely in our journey, if we are observant we'll always find mirrors and candles willing to befriend us.

Pleiadian Symbol: Visitors to the hut of a great seer who lives in the mountains.

Azoth Symbol: Knights journeying through a forest in search of a dragon.

Seed degree: Aquarius 22. A master healer is gradually restructuring someone's body. (Omega Symbol). When we tune in to those living forces of wisdom within we find we are able to use that energy to effect profound changes in this world and to help others to open up to higher states of consciousness.

A woman making lace. (Chandra Symbol). Working delicately and lovingly with the intricacies of life we find our way forward become more and more clear as it is illuminated by our intuition.

Fulfillment degree: Sagittarius 25An old book that on one has ever read. (Omega Symbol). The understandings that swim within our subconscious and which are always ready and willing to reveal themselves to our conscious mind are eternal truths that are ever find a new and unique expression through our own utterly unique being.

A small boat with no one in it. It is gradually drifting out to sea. (Chandra symbol). When we can clearly see the way forward we then realize that what we need to enhance our journey is to take care of whatever we are going to use as our vehicle of travel and to meet whatever responsibilities it requires of us.

Capricorn 28. A roomful of people busily cutting diamonds. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Receptive

(Degree Angel: ALADIAH (a-LA-dee-YAH) Looks Can Kill: Protection from the Evil Eye, Divine Grace)

There is a great urge toward perfection here that, rather than being focused, tends to pervade every aspect of one's life – in other words a desire to better and upgrade everything. The ultimate purpose of this is to bring spiritual light into this realm, and to do so, hopefully, in may different ways. At worst, though, the impulses of this degree may manifest as mere obsessiveness that lacks overall coordination and depth of purpose.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A mirror covered with a fine film of dust.” This degree is aware of all those things which can potentially cloud vision. It knows that the only way to keep seeing things clearly is to keep clearing away all the non-essentials, side issues and self projections. It's not an easy task and in fact may seem at times un-doable. It is learning in the current lifetime how to look beyond these obstructions, how to sharpen the picture of anything by listening to one's intuition. And also how to focus on the bigger picture rather than allowing obscuring and distorting details to render vision cloudy. When the diamonds of the Omega Symbol are cut, the light is allowed into them fully, and by the same token the dust on the mirror may be wiped away, which is an unending task, or the inner vision may take over so that the spiritual light may be perceived.

Pleiadian Symbol: Under a gigantic glass dome all sorts of birds, some sitting in trees and others flying.

Azoth Symbol: The return of a man who has been exploring hidden realms.

Seed degree: Pisces 4. Rustic folk gather many types of wildflowers for a celebration. (Omega Symbol). The colors of the wildflowers are the rainbows that the diamond cutters are revealing.

Mushrooms springing up everywhere. (Chandra Symbol). Rapid growth and proliferation leads, inevitably to entropy, and the need to clear away its waste products and bring clarity back to situations.

Fulfillment degree: Capricorn 25. During a ritual, a living woman is wrapped like an Egyptian mummy. (Omega Symbol). When we work to bring beauty into the world and to make a bigger place for the Spiritual Light to shine into our reality, we are automatically inspired to let go of the darkness within and be born into a new life that can more fully embrace the light.

A woman wearing a mask made out of butterfly wings. (Chandra Symbol). In our attempt to see beyond the distortions and illusions of the physical world we come to identify more and more with all that is uplifting, beautiful, and spiritual.

Capricorn 29. At dusk, a woman in a garden picking lettuce. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Responsible

(Degree Angel: LAUVIAH (LO-vee-YAH) Banishying the Remnants of Evil, Victory)

To go out into the world and simply and directly get ones needs met is the genius of this degree. And although the concept of this is simple, the actual playing out of it can be highly complex, for this degree is gifted with a relentless ingenuity and resourcefulness and is able to maintain a coolness, calmness and ease even in the midst of the world's most difficult challenges.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “An architect carefully surveying old ruins” This degree wants to reconstruct the past, if not in actuality at least in the mind, so that it can be clearly seen for what it is.
I'm referring here not just to the historical past in general, but to every souls own past – to all of one's past lives. Essentially, it wants to know exactly what happened and why, and it wants to know this because the past is the road by which we come to the present.

In an ideal world, an endless number of details add up musically to a beautiful and harmonious symphony. This degree is trying to embrace wholeness through studying fragments. It is a challenge that can be accomplished, as long as one avoids becoming lost in a sea of minleiscule bits of evidence. When this degree's creative research works, it magically builds out of the dust realms of imagination and wonder.

At its core this degree seeks something deeply cooling, soothing, simple, and refreshing (see the Omega Symbol), that it can and will eventually find amidst the shards of antiquity. This something sought is the eternal love that has always been there.

Pleiadian Symbol: A seer receives messages from wind sounds, rock patterns, and shadows.

Azoth Symbol: Clouds pausing over a mountain because they are drawn to its energy field.

Seed degree: Pisces 16. A troll living under a bridge. (Omega Symbol). When we fear change, and those forces which we sense will try to stop us from carrying it out, we are impelled to adopt a gentle persistence, a kind of low-key, natural, and guileless approach to life that focus

A peaceful child on a narrow ledge that overlooks a precipice. (Chandra Symbol). When we come to the limit or edge of anything, it impels us to look at how we got there, and through this assessing of the past we are able to find a way out of any restrictive situations that are impeding our growth.

Fulfillment degree: Aquarius 25. The muscles of a dancer's legs quivering in his sleep as he remembers dances. (Omega Symbol). When we adopt a gentle, simple approach to life we find that it has a way of undoing inner knots and pent-up stresses.

A moustache. (Chandra Symbol). Through carefully looking into the past in a detailed way we come to understand ourselves, which fosters the growth of self-confidence and an ability to take charge of our world.

Capricorn 30. A crystal made in a laboratory is buried in the ground. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Inspired

(Degree Angel: HAHAIAH (ha-HA-ee-YAH) Unconditional Love, Refuge, Shelter)

This degree combines the most sophisticated, elaborate and complicated ways of being and thinking with the simplest, most basic and earthly ones. There is always, though, a leaning toward the latter as taking precedence, with the former serving as supports and tools for them. This degree sees through much, and is never seduced, deluded or confused by the complexities the human mind perpetrates. It has a way of finding everything useful, and of being able to cut through any confusion to the simple, real core of the soul's purpose.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Blue morning glories growing up a tall trellis.” The roots of the morning glory are anchored in the ground, from whence they draw the sustenance needed to climb toward the sky. The morning glory cannot make this climb alone – it needs the support of the trellis. This degree is adept at finding the support it needs on this journey, and knows that no outer support will be effective unless the inner support of belief in self is found first.

It is here to teach others that outer authorities can be fallible, can even betray us, potentially, but that the inner authority – the higher self – the holy ghost – is not fallible, for all time is happening at once, and our higher self is that part of our being that has already reached enlightenment. We need only attune ourselves to it, as the blue of the morning glory is attuned to the blue of the sky.

Like the crystal buried in the ground in the Omega Symbol, this degree brings light to the earth.

Pleiadian Symbol: The planning of an angelic city.

Azoth Symbol: When consumed, waters from a spring which comes from a deep cave are causing drinkers to maintain eternal youth.

Seed degree: Pisces 28.A shy poet in hiding. (Omega symbol). When we protect ourselves from the discordant energies of the world of humans, we are able to create more freely and to more easily find ways to positively influence the world in which we live as well as ground ourselves in it.

A hoard of monkeys chattering. (Chandra Symbol). The continuous static that the mind is always producing inspires us to raise our consciousness toward the peacefulness and vast open spaces of spirit where we can be free.

Fulfillment degree: Pisces 25.On top of a high hill, a circle of standing stones. (Omega Symbol). To return to all that is simple and basic brings a unity and clarity to life, that helps us to remain centered.

People and animals frightened during an eclipse. (Chandra Symbol). When we reach into higher planes of being we experience the shocks of new levels of consciousness, but find out eventually that they are not dangerous or threatening but only there to further awaken us.

(154) Omega/Chandra Symbols: Capricorn 21 - 25

Phase 59. Umbilical Cord (Hey Resh Chet)

Angel: HARAHEL (HA-ra-HEL) Intellectual Richness

Capricorn 21. As a woman moves down a passageway, many hands reach out to touch her. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Experimental

(Degree Angel: SITAEL (SIT-ah-EL) Miracle Making, Construction of Universe/Worlds)

If you keep moving forward, guiding and helping forces will reach out to assist you. There may as well be other forces which will attempt to retard and stop you, but this, too, is good, for it gives you the chance to confront your shadow self, and hence to understanding yourself in a much more complete way. This degree is highly sensitive to anything which might try to stop it or encourage it, and is utterly intent on reaching its destiny.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A stately old house in a ruined condition.” The house may be refurbished, and either updated, or restored in accordance with the historical period in which it was built, or it may torn down, or simply left alone. It is interesting that of these four possibilities there is a tendency for many people to think of them as moral imperatives – that something SHOULD be done, in a certain way. The fact is, the house can be appreciated for what it is, or it can be changed.

The past is the same way – we can appreciate it and accept it for what it is, or we can actually change it, by freeing ourselves from its influence. Whatever we choose to do we will find that as we move through the passageway of time, as the woman in the Omega Symbol is doing, hands will reach out to touch us – to encourage us in our forward movement, or to try to stop us and hold us back. And the interesting thing is that often the hands trying to help us are the ones that are actually holding us back, and the ones seemingly trying to hold us back are found eventually to be the ones that help us forward.

We are always free to respond to this however we want, and are always free, also, to change are responses over time. At its highest this degree is almost completely non-judgmental and willing in every instance to try to chose the way that leads to the highest good for all.

Pleiadian Symbol: Runners relaying a message through the mountains.

Azoth Symbol: Thousands of messages sent by light beams.

Seed degree: 10 Sagittarius 10. A man being followed by a space ship. (Omega Symbol). When we tune in to higher forces attempting to make contact with us we become increasingly aware of how all that we contact serves to either support us and further our cause, or offer us resistance, which in the long run also furthers our cause.

A star turning many different colors. (Chandra Symbol). When we realize that stability and change are doing an eternal dance with each other we are more able to appreciate everything around us, whether it be going through a phase of growth or decay.

Fulfillment degree: Gemini 25.A healer who uses smiles to perform all his healings. (Omega Symbol). Allowing ourselves to be touched by all that passes us attunes us more and more deeply to joy, which is the overflowing of love, the universal healer.

Capricorn 22. Sugar falling slowly through a giant hourglass. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Sensitive

(Degree Angel: SITAEL (SIT-ah-EL) Eliminating Negative Thoughts, Construction of Universe/Worlds)

This degree has a great ability for not wasting time – for realizing that each moment holds possibilities and promises and has something of value to offer. This knowledge is a power antidote against focusing to much on the promises of the future, or the failures of the past. This degree knows how to delightin the present, and how to savor the moment.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A bare altar covered with black velvet.” This degree is receptive to the highest and clearest energy to which it can attune. It has the ability to create empty spaces whose vacuum draws in new energy. It's acutely aware of how basic assusmptions and things we take for granted can block the inflow of new energy and inspiration, and so is always trying to create a space that is clear – a kind of landing pad for visitants. This can require a lot of waiting and patience, but, as the corresponding Omega Symbol shows us, every moment contains sweetness to be savored.

Pleiadian Symbol: The giving up of a famous magical sword.

Azoth Symbol: The fairy court in its formal palace and dressed in all its finery.

Seed degree: Sagittarius 22.
A flamenco dancer. As he stamps his purple boots, small clouds of dust are raised. (Omega Symbol). Such passionate insinuations invite us to taste the sweetness of the moment.

Blackbirds flying out of a pie. (Chandra Symbol). Release the pent-up darkness to create a receptive space.

Fulfillment degree: Cancer 25. An invisible man yearning to feel the sun on his skin. (Omega Symbol). Embracing the sweetness of each moment creates a yearning to enter fully into the reality of the now and to bask in its meaning.

A flock of penguins on an icy beach. (Chandra Symbol). To clear the channels of communication between ourselves and the spiritual light brings us into increasingly intimate kinship and support with all the life-affirming entities around us, be they in a physical body or on other planes.

Capricorn 23. While their bodies sleep, a group of people meet on the astral plane. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Receptive

(Degree Angel: MAHASIAH (mah-HA-see-YAH) Healing, Rectification)

This degree deeply senses that the outer reality is an illusion that hides the true nature of things. It can feel intuitively what is really going on, and even if it is not consciously aware of its powerful psychic ability, it seems, always to be able to sense the truth of what is happening and of how energies are interacting with each other. It has a deep desire to communion with others, and to access the web of connections that unite us all.

The Chandra symbol for his degree is “An old priest using oil to anoint a carved lingam.” We are embodied in the physical and we are built for action. To embrace this fully is to encourage the flow of activity and impulse, to invite creativity. The stone is hard, but the oil is soft, meaning that sexual energy may be at times expressed only as a base and selfish force, but may also be elevated into a way of loving and giving. This degree is about the wise self working with the sexual energy, so that it is guided into evolutionary and life-supporting manifestations. It is then that the people of the Omega Symbol can gain the maximum sustenance from their meetings.

Pleiadian Symbol: A medal struck to commemorate an historical event.

Azoth Symbol: All sorts of flora and fauna spawning in spring.
The life force proliferating in an array of different forms when the right conditions are present.

Seed degree: 4 Capricorn 4. As a cliff erodes, a temple is in danger of collapsing. (Omega Symbol). Unstable conditions, even though they may inspire fear, can also open us up to new levels of experience and new ways of communicating.

Footprints in the snow. (Chandra Symbol). Realizing that everything we do leaves its trace we are inspired to become assertive and proactive so as to create a path for the Spiritual Light to enter the world.

Fulfillment degree: Leo 25. A woman incessantly eating pills. (Omega Symbol). If we can truly take in what we need at all times we develop the power to reach beyond time and space so as to unite with spirits of like mind. On the other hand if we keep trying to get something which we feel we never get, our inner self will find other and alternative ways of getting it.

A circle of neat houses, each one identical. (Chandra Symbol). Affirming the potency of our creative power, we then find a vehicle for it, often something that fits in easily to the world, so that we can work our magic in secret and the world may receive its benefits with a minimum of feeling threatened.

Capricorn 24. Although he is afraid of heights, a man continues to ascend a flight of invisible stairs. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Responsible

(Degree Angel: LELAHEL (LAY-la-HEL) Dream State, Light of Understanding)

This degree is always willing to go with what works, to suspend judgment, and to try out new ways of doing things. In essence, it has a deeply powerful faith, and knowledge that there is so much more to the world than there appears to be. This open attitude, if focused on, can cause it to find much success and advancement, which might be worldly, spiritual, or both.

The Chandra symbol for this degree is “Stalactites and stalagmites almost grown together.” The angels reach down to us, we reach up to them. What comes from above is accumulated below to the extent we can take it in, until there is a meeting. This degree has great faith, and a willingness to keep going, even when the journey seems to be so slow that progress seems imperceptible. Conflicts can be resolved by the two sides gradually drawing together, gradually sharing in small ways, until finally there is a coming together in a deep and genuine point of contact.

Pleiadian Symbol: A woman being interviewed for a position as priestess.

Azoth Symbol: A man giving beggars money and other gifts.

Seed degree: Capricorn 16.
An invisible skull reveals a living human brain, its surface flickering with rainbows. (Omega Symbol). When we are able to allow our powers of imagination and visualization to energize and free our mind we develop the faith needed to reach toward higher states of being.

Dinosaur bones discovered while digging. (Chandra Symbol). Contacting the extremely remote aspects of our own past and the power that resides there we gradually heal all inner schisms and are able to manifest as a whole person.

Fulfillment degree: Virgo 25. A man crawling on his hands and knees through dust keeps finding jewels and other valuable items. (Omega Symbol). When we have found the faith to reach toward the heights of understanding, we come to see that all that is there is mirrored in the little and seemingly insignificant things of this world.

A gold ring in the form of a snake swallowing its own tail. (Chandra Symbol). Through gradually working through the challenges of this world we come to see that we are self-sufficient, and that we have all we need right inside of us.

Capricorn 25. During a ritual, a living woman is wrapped like an Egyptian mummy. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Inspired

(Degree Angel: ACHAIAH (a-KA-hee-YAH) DNA of the Soul, Patience)

This degree innately realizes that sometimes it needs to completely let go of an old way of being and be reborn anew. The problem is, that old energies from a past existence, if not cleared sufficiently will come back to limit and oppress one until they are cleared away. And so this process of dying to the old and being reborn may have to happen multiple times until the clearing finally occurs.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A woman wearing a mask made out of butterfly wings.” This degree wants to be accepted by others, and to look good. There are two ways this can manifest: (1) a self-idealization that manifests in outer trappings that are put on in an attempt to feel safe and comfortable and socially appropriate, and (2) a continual and persistent identification with the soul's purity and spiritual aspirations so that everyone you contact is radiated with an elevated energy that disperses the heavy depressive vibrations of this illusory, physical world. Only number 2 will lead to self-fulfillment.

The woman of the Omega Symbol is wrapped, like a butterfly, in a chrysalis, so that she may emerge from it as a higher being.

Pleiadian Symbol: A merchant has his assistants unroll an immense rug of intricate deisgn.

Azoth Symbol: In the middle of a bustling city a man walks alone among tombstones and mausoleums.

Seed degree: Capricorn 28. A roomful of people busily cutting diamonds. (Omega Symbol). As we provide a place for the light to appear, we find we become that place.

Fulfillment degree: Libra 25. New words magically appearing in a dictionary. (Omega Symbol). Taking on higher and finer energies, we find new ways of expressing the light.

In the midst of a forest, a great circular open area. (Chandra Symbol). When we are able to identify with the higher aspects of our being we find that life provides us with a safe, secure place in which to create, life and grow.

Phase 58. Letting Go (Yud Yud Lamed)

Angel: YEIALEL (YAY-a-LEL) Mental Force

Capricorn 16. An invisible skull reveals a living human brain, its surface flickering with rainbows. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Experimental

(Degree Angel: Jabamiah (ya-BA-mee-YAH) Recognizing Design Beneath Disorder, Alchemy, Transformation)

Seeing beyond the opaqueness and density of the physical realm we encounter a spiritual level replete with free-form, flowing beauty. This degree's imagination is fueled by that realm. The most difficult thing for it to do is to find a way to express this in physical form. The necessity for a creative outlet is very great, and the only way to find this is through experimentation.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Dinosaur bones discovered while digging.” This degree unearths what is ancient. It is the revealer of a greater reality. This often happens by accident – it just seems to be magnetized to hidden things which can can greatly expand our understanding of our own past and of who we really are. It can be inspired to do wonderful things with these findings, but is far more likely to be able to make the most of these treasures if it can let go of all former assumptions and allow its finer sensitivities to track with the flowering of new paradigms.

Pleiadian Symbol: Dancers sweating and stripping off clothes as they work out.

Azoth Symbol: A witch giving someone an apple from her orchard which is imbued with health-enhancing properties.

Seed degree: Libra 10. A ginseng root in the shape of a human being. (Omega Symbol). The desire to completely heal the self carries us eventually into the realization that the key to doing so lies in our imagination and our ability to work with the Light.

A hand with perfectly manicured long nails. (Chandra Symbol). To pursue the desire for personal beauty leads us eventually to see the deep and ancient motives behind this.

Fulfillment degree: Capricorn 24. Although he is afraid of heights, a man continues to ascend a flight of invisible stairs. (Omega Symbol). To become in full contact with our imagination gives us a faith that supports us in reaching toward the divine.

Stalactites and stalagmites almost grown together. (Chandra Symbol). To dig deeply into the past eventually leads to realizingthe connection between our heights and our depths.

Capricorn 17. A man stretching slowly and carefully in many different directions. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Sensitive

(Degree Angel: Haiyael (HA-ee-ya-EL) Prophecy and Parallel Universes, Divine Warrior/Weaponry)

This degree gently tests limits, feeling them out carefully to get a clear understanding of them. It is naturally adept at working within limits, and stretching them in a controlled way. It realizes that when inflexibility and rigidity is encountered one must proceed with care and smoothly, and that to reach beyond barriers may require patience and persistence.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A gold ring baked into a cake.” This degree discovers gifts everywhere being delivered by the universe. Just as the ring is concealed in the cake, so many of these gifts are not visible or knowable at first. Life must be taken in and digested, and then in the process of doing so the gold ring emerges.

The ring is of gold, the metal of the Sun, the planet which signifies that which meaningful and enduring. These gifts of gold are to be found everywhere – they are simply not noticed most of the time. This degree wants to exhort everyone to “Notice! Notice!,” for gold mines are discovered in the most unlikely of places.

We can do far more with what life presents us with than we are aware of – this is the message of this degree.

Pleiadian Symbol: A Moon Goddess stepping into a sacred pool.

Azoth Symbol: A group of notebooks of creative ideas that belonged to a famous author.

Seed degree: Libra 22. A man avoiding moonlight. (Omega Symbol). The desire to overcome the potentially negative effect of our emotions impels us eventually to clear our rigidities and restrictions.

An ancient glass vial perfectly preserved. (Chandra Symbol). To protect our sensitivity from damaging influences supports us in seeing the unexpected opportunities and gifts that life is always offering.

Fulfillment degree: Aquarius 24. A helicopter depositing a man on top of the Great Pyramid. (Omega Symbol). When we keep our being limber both physically and psychologically we often find that seemingly arduous and difficult tasks can become effortless. Also, when we let to of limiting beliefs we create circumstances which facilitate our needs.

A large brown bear picking and eating apples. (Chandra Symbol). Faith in the flow of gifts constantly coming from the universe encourages us to enjoy simply and directly the fruits of existence.

Capricorn 18. A forgotten painting stored in a vault. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Receptive

(Degree Angel: Mumiah (MOO-mee-YAH) Spiritual Cleansing, Endings and Rebirth)

This degree is inherently patient and knows that it may take a long time before its gifts are appreciated. Its also aware that when people are exposed to something again and again over a long period they can begin to take that thing for granted, and so sometimes its best to hold back what one has to offer until the time is right to bring it forth.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A black leopard with green eyes.” The painting is stored in the dark, the leopard is a creature of the dark. Green is the color of emeralds, the gem of Mercury, the planet of communication. The artist's painting was painted to communicate something, but not it is not doing that – it dwells in the dark. Until it can communicate once again – open its eyes to the light, and reaffirm its power, which is like that of the leopard's.

Sometimes when something is hidden it is a good thing – later, when it is re-revealed we may see it with fresh eyes. This degree knows the power of waiting for the right time to act, the right time to bring forth its ideas. It uses the power of darkness and silence to enhance what is eventually and finally communicated.

Pleiadian Symbol: A glorious dragon of many colors embroidered onto a flag.

Azoth Symbol: A speaker intuiting what her audience needs to hear.

Seed degree: 4 Scorpio 4. An albino woman unaffected by the rays of the sun. (Omega Symbol). When we cease to allow the obvious to overpower our consciousness we become aware of hidden treasures everywhere.

A loud roar as a tornado approaches. (Chandra Symbol). The intensity and power of overpowering thought forms give rise to potent desires and a deep, burning desire to communicate and connect.

Fulfillment degree: Pisces 24.An empty perfume bottle, the scent completely gone. (Omega Symbol). What has been lost is come to be seen as something that may be translated into the present via the imagination, or completely let go of to make way for whatever new is to come.

A spring festival. The participants are in a state of ecstatic frenzy. (Chandra Symbol)

Capricorn 19. In the night, someone peering into a dark window. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Responsible

(Degree Angel: VEHUIAH (vay-HOO-ee-YAH) Time Travel, Will and New Beginnings)

There's a deep curiosity here – a desire to understand the private lives and deepest innermost worlds of other people. This degree is investigative and often secretive. It has the ability to be unobtrusive even to the point of invisibility. And, hopefully what will result will be discoveries and uncoverings that will heal and advance the world.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A half-eaten piece of bread.” Will the rest of the bread be eaten, or has one had enough? This degree is about being aware of what is required to sustain life, and of knowing the difference between necessary nourishment versus indulgent gratification. It is a degree that promotes simplicity and economy in all things – a paring down to the barest essentials, in an attempt to reveal the minimum that is needed for survival.

It asks, “what can be done away with, and what is indispensable?” Often the dividing line between these two things is not clear, and can be easily distorted by fears and and desires. Which is why this degree so often, then, becomes the person of the corresponding Omega Symbol, who peers into the darker corners of the psyche in an attempt to discover the truth.

Pleiadian Symbol: A child carefully carrying an immense stack of books.

Azoth Symbol: Small animals cautiously investigating each other.

Seed degree: Scorpio 16. A scientist using gravity waves to communicate with other universes. (Omega Symbol). To attempt to connect with other realities eventually gives rise to the impulse to explore directly, even when danger may lurk and when we may not be able to clearly see our way toward what we're exploring.

Charon ferries the dead across the river Styx. (Chandra Symbol). To go through any death experience always helps us to understand better what we do and don't need, and what will and won't nurture us.

Fulfillment degree: 25 Aries. A man studying a sequence of random numbers. (Omega Symbol). Our curiosity leads us into the search for recurrence, meaning, and messages in whatever we encounter.

Bees returning to their hives. (Chandra symbol). Finding satiety brings us back to our home and to communion with whatever beings we come to identify as our family.

Capricorn 20. A host of angels in conference. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Inspired

(Degree Angel: JELIEL (Jay-lee-EL) Recapturing the Sparks, Love and Wisdom)

This degree can be very adept at figuring out the best way to proceed, and how to maker the best and most efficient use of the resources at hand. Sometimes the best way to get where one is going is not the most seemingly direct or obvious one. This degree is aware of the need that often arises to let go of personal agendas and the dictates of the ego, and focus on following the flow of cosmic harmony as it unfolds.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Many different perfumes carried by a breeze” These scents mingling in a breeze are an image of complexity that can be nearly impossible to analyze or define. This degree is always catching wiffs of things, passing fragments that can be very beautiful and uplifting. It fulfills its highest ability when it moves instinctively with these vibrational eddies without trying to take them apart or figure them out. Everything is always trying to work itself out – it is the ego that holds everything back. Step aside from the ego for a moment and these lovely resonances are picked up which can lead to the most marvelous and unexpected places. This is what the host of angels of the Omega symbol are is trying to tell us.

Pleiadian Symbol: As a choir sings, angelic voices join in.

Azoth Symbol: A small enclave of a secret society that has existed for centuries.

Seed degree: Scorpio 28. A man who speaks only in meter and rhyme. (Omega Symbol). When we align ourselves with and express the rhythm and harmony we feel we attune ourselves to a higher consciousness and the help and support it offers.

A building: the only part of it left is the cornerstone. (Chandra Symbol). The ability to perceive the essential quality of anything leads us into the ability to perceive how these qualities blend as well as the subtleties and overtones of these blends.

Fulfillment degree: 25 Taurus 25. A holographic computer. (Omega Symbol). To perceive how higher forces work together to create harmony gives us an ever fuller and completer picture of the reality in which we live.

Bees returning to their hive. (Chandra Symbol). To experience the subtle beauties of the unseen realms creates such satisfaction in us that we feel we have come home to a connectedness with our soul family.

(152) Omega/Chandra Symbols: Capricorn 11 - 15

Phase 57. Listening to Your Soul (Nun Mem Mem)

Angel: NEMAMIAH (ne-MAM-mee-YAH) Discernment

Capricorn 11. A gothic novel creates a dark, mysterious atmosphere. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Experimental

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

Definiteness is always confining or limiting in some way. This degree has the ability to create an expansiveness through indefiniteness, an openness that provides a field in which the imagination can thrive. This also allows the contents of the subconscious to come forward, with a consequent purging and healing of the emotional body. Most of this usually happens in a highly subtle, unconscious way.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A young boy joyously kisses a fat old lady.” This degree loves life as it is, and has a zest for encountering things as they are and then moving forth from there, by bettering what can be bettered, but accepting what is not likely to change. It can be contented, even happy, even in circumstances which are restrictive and lacking of opportunity, for it knows within itself that whatever is there is what needs to be there for now, and so without expectations it is free to relish what is.

The message it has to impart is that when we have little, a little becomes a lot when we can truly alow ourselves to appreciate it.

Pleiadian Symbol: Wild birds flocking around temple ruins.

Azoth Symbol: A man using colored lights to read a palimpsest.

Seed degree: 10 Leo. A man who sees stars invisible to others. (Omega symbol). When we are able to perceive that which others do not notice it induces us to bring a subtly of intensity and feeling into all we do.

Sunrise over Stonehenge. (Chandra Symbol). The new expressing vibrant love for the old brings new live to ancient truths.

Capricorn 12. Mold growing on a diamond. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Sensitive

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

No matter how difficult or discordant things become outwardly, deep inside this degree is impervious to negativity. It can manifest a strength of purpose and self-consistency that is unshakable, and can enter into difficult and highly stressful situations to do what it needs to do without becoming polluted by surrounding discord. At its highest it is a dedicated and constant channeller of the spiritual light. And although it holds to perfection as an ideal, it is aware and accepting of any imperfections that are either of no consequence and/or which it cannot change.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A beautiful, erotic fat woman eating chocolates.” I am reminded of William Blake's proverb, “The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom.” To indulge oneself is to look for fulfillment, and indulgence will only continue if fulfillment is not found. And so what is needed is a purer, deeper indulgence that finally transcends addiction. Often if what is forbidden is embraced it can then be fully let go of. Accepting and who one is, together with one's weaknesses and vulnerabilities can be what finally allows one to shed them.

Pleiadian Symbol: A botanist explaining the structure of flowers.

Azoth Symbol: A man sensitized to the energies that each particular star emanates.

Seed degree: Leo 22. A giant temple with many layers. It is in the shape of a mountain. (Omega Symbol). The multilayered truths and vastness of the spiritual realms, when clearly perceived render us impervious to any and all negativity and illusion.

An alligator swims slowly through a swamp. (Chandra Symbol). When we find we are truly and completely in our own element, we need to beware loving it to the point of indulgence and the creation of stagnation.

Fulfillment degree: Virgo 24. A satyr sleeping standing up. Roots are growing from his hooves into the ground. (Omega Symbol). Accepting the co-existence of both perfection and imperfection allows us to unite our energies deeply with those of the physical world, so we can derive from it the nurturing needed by our spirit.

A silver trident. (Chandra Symbol). If we are conscious and aware in the satisfaction of cravings we learn more about their true nature and are hence able to purify and clear our emotional bodies.

Capricorn 13. Singing and dancing in a desert oasis. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Receptive

(Degree Angel: Eyael (AY-ya-EL) Great Expectations, Transformation to the Sublime)

This degree has the capacity to create its own small world out of seemingly nothing, and to find a way to enjoy life even in situations where the potential to do so seems remote. Its makes do with what it has, and will often even seek out limiting or desolate situations so that it may exercise its resourcefulness and ability to generate happiness.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A very old wrinkled brown paper sack.” This degree works hard and wants to get a lot done. It can be tremendously productive. It needs, though, to make sure it does this with kindness and gentleness, so that it does not overburden itself and become worn out. It is intensely in need of improving anything with which it becomes involved, and if this can be balanced with a continual regenerating of its own energy it will find that its projects will thrive and flourish to a much greater extent.

Pleiadian Symbol: A flame talking to a poet.

Azoth Symbol: A man dreams of the Lords of Karma.

Seed degree: Virgo 4. A woman boiling clothes in a cauldron with shavings of lye soap. (Omega symbol). Through continually purifying and clearing whatever discord has come to cling to us frees us to experience the full effects of our joyfulness so that it may create happiness in the bleakest of environments.

A small piglet dressed in baby's clothes. (Chandra Symbol). The realization of our inherent uniqueness and strangeness, and of our animal nature shining through every attempt at civilization impels us to find a use for who we are, and of ways we can be an instrument to facilitate the fulfillment of needs.

Fulfillment degree: Libra 24
Gemstones buried in the ground in the pattern of the constellation Orion. (Omega Symbol). To express happiness and joy blesses the environment with deep, enduring, and uplifting energy.

A chameleon with moving pictures on its back. (Chandra Symbol). The more experiences soften us up the more we are able to clearly perceive the environment around us and learn to deflect its discordant energies.

Capricorn 14. A woman restoring an ancient textile. (Omega Symbol)

(Degree Angel: Habuhiah (he-bU-hee-YAH) Contacting Departed Souls, Healing)

This degree is a retriever of the beauties of the past, a refurbisher and re-energizer of whatever has lost its glow or momentum. It is capable of careful and tedious work, and will always do the best it possibly can to insure that its productions are vivid and of high quality. Rather than thinking in terms of placing its personal stamp on what it does, it is more intent on maintaining the integrity of whatever it works on.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Beads carved from human bone.” The beads signify all our former incarnations, whose energies and memories we carry with us wherever we go, whether we consciously realize it or not. Just as there are holes in the ancient textile of the Omega Symbol, there are holes in our energy field caused by parts of ourselves which need to be brought forth to further our current journey, but which the limits of our present personality are not allowing through. To restore this textile means to let ourselves be receptive to these healing and balancing energies, so as to allow through what is already there and which has always been there.

Pleiadian Symbol: In a crypt a bas-relief of a woman holding a lotus by its stem.

Azoth Symbol: The star Sirius rises in the east.

Seed degree: Virgo 16. A woman cutting the thorns off roses. (Omega Symbol). When we remove whatever stands in the way of love we find we are working to reweave the beautiful fabric of life.

A jar of camphor crystals. (Chandra Symbol). Clearing the air of vibrations brings contact with the eternal peace and silence that allows us to see the vast cosmic scope of who we really are.

Fulfillment degree: Scorpio 24. Gold turning into lead. (Omega Symbol). As we come to see the past more and more clearly we see that every step in our process is ultimately of equal importance, which helps us to overcome the striving after meaning – for it is, was, and always will be there.

Coca bushes growing wild in the Andes Mountains. (Chandra Symbol). When we tune in to our past lives we find there exactly what we need to carry on with our present journey.

Capricorn 15. An angelologist explains the sacred hierarchies. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Inspired

(Degree Angel: Rochel (ro-SHEL) Lost and Found, Restitution)

This degree is aware of how to access the help that the universe makes available to all beings. To receive this help one has to first understand the manner in which it is structured – the limitations and priorities that need to be followed, and the specific ways in which all the different energies work. It is all in the process of finding one's way toward pure consciousness which is union with God.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A woman wearing a necklace of skulls.” If only focused on seeking power and denying those fears inside which need to be released this degree will merely perpetuate old karmas until the cycle is worn out. On the other hand, if it can rise above such ego impulses it has a tremendous ability to deeply heal and clear its own being as well as catalyze others to do the same.

The woman wearing the necklace of skulls is the goddess Kali, a dark angel who helps us to befriend all the hidden and lost pieces of ourselves.. Until her tests are met, we cannot fully attune to the sacred hierarchies of the Omega Symbol.

The challenge of this degree is to find the right use of its inborn ability to lead – a way that serves the will of the highest, as well as to fuse compassion and forgiveness with its innate potency.

Pleiadian Symbol: Butterflies and flowers appearing magically to comfort convalescents.

Azoth Symbol: Candlelight glowing on a gold-leafed screen in a dim room.

Seed degree: 28 Virgo 28. A baby experiments with different sounds its mouth can make. (Omega Symbol). Such innocent and direct attempts to give voice to what is within becomes a way of accessing and comprehending the divine.

Autumn leaves pressed in a book. (Chandra Symbol). Whatever we have collected from the past becomes distilled into a body of memories that, if we can enter into its mysteries is found to contain all the wisdom of the universe.

Fulfillment degree: Sagittarius 24.A man in his imagination inventing flowers, the seeds of which magically appear. (Omega Symbol). Comprehending more and more deeply the structures of harmony that pervades the universe we see more and more clearly that the possibilities of creativity are limitless and self-proliferating.

A statue of Isis covered by a transparent veil. (Chandra Symbol). When we overcome the fear of death and realize that it is necessary to the fostering of life, we are able to see through the veil that hides the face of nature.

(151) Omega/Chandra Symbols: Capricorn 6 - 10

Phase 56. Dispelling Anger (Pey Vav Yud)

Angel: POYEL (poi-YEL) Fortune and Support

Capricorn 6. A woman inventing magical perfumes. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Experimental

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

This degree has an instinct for how to blend energies in such a way as to produce specific effects. Its knowledge is highly non-objective and comes primarily from inspiration and an ability to sense what the result of these blends will be. When expressing the self, subtle emphasis is placed in just the right way to create a desired sensation. The feeling is reminiscent of Japanese aesthetics.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “An ancient gold scarab lying in the sand.” Here things that are simplified to their essentials in such a way that they carry a Piscean quality of indefinable wonder. This degree expresses eternal truths in a condensed format, and often in such a hidden way that even though the essence of magic comes through, it lingers there in a way so subtle and transparent that it can't be clearly defined or directly seen. The scarab carries an aura about it that recalls the mystery and sublimity of antiquity – just as the perfumes of the Omega Symbol do.

Pleiadian Symbol: Logs of sacred trees being finished to become columns in a temple.

Azoth Symbol: Women of court walking softly so as hot to disturb the lotus blossoms.

Seed degree: 10 Gemini. Magic glasses which allow one read a secret text. (Omega Symbol). It takes these magic glasses to see the scarab in the sand – the scarab being, actually the condensation of an ancient text.

A young woman notices the handsome man has fangs. (Chandra Symbol). And now she must work with his dark, predatory side – so she's going to need some magic perfumes.

Fulfillment degree: Pisces 23. In a museum, paintings are admiring people as they pass by. (Omega Symbol). To work with the combining and blending of energies leads to new realms, startling results, and new communications.

Someone lurking in a dark wood. They are waiting for a passerby. (Chandra Symbol). These perfumes and ancient magics need someone to grab.

Capricorn 7. A guidebook to an ancient city. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Sensitive

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

This degree is good at pointing out the structures of things to other people, and at clarifying information. It wants others to understand the significance of things, and to see how the past has produced the results of the present. It is especially adept at bringing forth lost or forgotten information which can enrich present knowledge.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A satyr gazing at his reflection in a pond.” To peer into one's animal side looking back at you from the depths of the subconscious, and to befriend it – this is what this symbol is trying to do. If you try to deny or ignore this energy, you will always be drawn back to it, as it will be drawn to you. If you try to civilize it, it will elude you. If you are timid or fearful, the vision of this primitive you can be frightening. The more you can own it and love it, though, the stonger you will connect yourself to the joy and power of your earth being. The challenge is to accept and not complexify – to make friends with and integrate this wild inner being. Then you will deeply have learned the secrets of the ancient city of the Omega Symbol.

Pleiadian Symbol: A man secretly writing down his visions.

Azoth Symbol: In a river people washing away the imprints of memories.

Seed degree: Gemini 22. A painting that, once it is seen, cannot be remembered. (Omega Symbol). And so you have to keep looking again until you see your satyr self in the pool.

A harp which plays itself. (Chandra Symbol). The satyr and its reflection play on each other, making fable music in the forest.

Capricorn 8. A river passes through a deep, narrow canyon full of shadows. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Receptive

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

In times of hardship this degree keeps on going. There is a complete acknowledging of and a conforming to limitations – a continual compromising as it moves on through confining or frustrating situations by doing whatever has to be done to maintain a forward flow. A gentle, flexible interaction with the world's densities is its power.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A snake charmer.” The only way you can charm the snake is to get in tune with it. This is not about having power over the snake, it is about melding to its consciousness and following its dance. This degree is adept at following the dances of others, at tracking with them in such a way that discord and misunderstanding are let go of – at least for awhile, so that an exchange of energies can occur – which always promotes deep understanding.

Pleiadian Symbol: Birds of many different colors flying out of a window.

Azoth Symbol: A taste awakens memories of summer fields and groves.

Seed degree: Cancer 4. People watching fireworks at a distance. (Omega symbol).A glimpse into exalted spiritual wonders makes us more aware of the darkness and limitations around us, but also supports a heightened ability to flow through these challenges with acceptance.

Weeping willows by a pond. (Chandra Symbol). To come into deep connectedness with one's own emotions is to eventually be able to work with their power.

Fulfillment degree: Taurus 24. A man cataloging thousands of different types of microbes. (Omega Symbol). It difficult and confining situations we are compelled to tune in the hidden underpinnings of them.

A man with no mouth. (Chandra Symbol). The attempt to track with the flow of one's vital energy teaches one to cease thinking and to act spontaneously.

Capricorn 9. A woman thinks of all the things that have died and rotted to make the soil. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Responsible

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

This degree realizes the richness of life and seems to know how to enrich anything in which its involved. Its helps others to be more aware of the constant presence of change in life, and hence a need to completely savor and enjoy the moment. It tunes people into the tremendous abundance around them, and helps them to tap it.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A woman washes a man's feet and dries them with her hair.” The rational (male) mind is supported here by the feminine. Feet signify understanding, here purified and cleansed of all darkness by the great mother. So often objectivity manifests in a cold, detached way that actually separates itself from life. This degree is trying to bring it back into wholeness by always injecting everything with love and forgiveness, with being soft and giving everyone as many breaks as they need. And it realizes that playing a secondary role is, yes, humbling, but if it is for a higher purpose, never demeaning.

Pleiadian Symbol: A winged fairy hovering and playing a tiny harp.

Azoth Symbol: A man alone for many months is absorbed in writing a novel.

Seed degree: Cancer. 16A woman dressed in immaculately clean rags. (Omega Symbol). Purified and beyond the limitations of style, we see the vastness of the cycles of life and death.A skull carved of quartz crystal. (Chandra Symbol). An utterly clear mind then becomes capable of perceiving the panoply of nature.

Fulfillment degree: Gemini 24. A man who heals water, be it in lakes, rivers, the ocean, or a glass. (Omega Symbol). When the masculine is healed it provides a basis for clearing and re-energizing all emotions, thereby healing the feminine.

A nude man with a tail. (Chandra Symbol). The man whose feet have been purified is now able to get back in touch with his animal nature.

Capricorn 10. Many strange and diverse objects are seen floating down a river. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Inspired

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

Vivification, invigoration, enlivenment)
This degree has a lack of attachment to life and the world. It has the ability to move freely through life and to visit many places (both physically actual as well as inner emotional states) that others would not allow themselves to experience due to fear of so much change. What may seem to be chaotic behavior on the part of this degree is often seen as quite meaningful on a closer look, and part of a regimen of highly individualized learning.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A man astride a horse is drinking in its energy and power.” This degree is always aware that we are continually taking from nature, feeding on it and using it to fulfill our own purposes. If this is carried out in a respectful way, and to sustain rather than to merely indulge ourselves we find that nature is always there ready to give.

The strange and diverse objects floating down the river in the Omega Symbol are all those things which captivate us, one after the other, as we experience the world around us flowing through time. The best relationship to have with all this passing stuff is to take what we need from it, use whatever we are inspired to use for whatever we need it for, and let the rest flow on – for others downstream to use, as needed. This degree carries just this kind of pragmatic and yet spiritual attitude – when its living in tune with its dharma.

Pleiadian Symbol: A bird sent by angels to lead sailors out of dangerous waters.

Azoth Symbol: The print of a rabbit's foot left in the soft mud of a garden.

Seed degree: Cancer 28. Words streaming from a magician's eyes and filling a blank book at which he is gazing. (Omega Symbol). When we are able to directly access the contents of our subconscious we are then presented with the creative challenge of what to focus on, which is always based on the meanings that we find in anything that holds our attention, and the changes those meanings go through as time passes.

A tremendous cave on the bank of a river. (Chandra Symbol). When we allow ourselves to explore our own depths we always find that doing so increases and intensifies our personal power.

Fulfillment degree: Cancer 24. A man building a structure meant to look like the ruins of a temple. (Omega Symbol). When we're able to experiences all that is passing by our imagination is stimulated, creating a desire to recapture higher, nobler, more glorious states.

A single crumbling Corinthian column (Chandra Symbol). When we merge with our personal power we are able to stand on our own, and to detach from the superficiality of outer appearances.

(150) Omega/Chandra Symbols: Capricorn 1 - 5

Phase 55. Thought into Action (Mem Bet Hey)

Angel: MEBAHIAH (me-BA-hee-YAH) Intellectual Lucidity

Capricorn 1. A man mesmerized as he reads words glowing with light. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Experimental

(Degree Angel: Mebahiah (me-BA-hee-YAH) Thought Into Action, Intellectual Lucidity)

This degree has an ability to see clearly the spiritual message behind any and all information. When he tries though to communicate this to other people he may find it difficult to do so. He needs to realize that others are not on his wavelength, and that he may have to find indirect ways of communicating if he is to be effective at it.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A canopy bed with curtains.” This symbol signifies a private place in which to dream and retreat from the world. It may seem like a strangely introverted symbol for such a social and gregarious sign as Capricorn, but the fact is that unless this very private inward place is established as a base there can be no effective operating out in the world. This degree has a deep rooting within, which supports it greatly in holding fast to its true self. When there is a deep going within, as there is here, there can be a far going without without losing sight of one's core. This is the type of spiritual fortitude that can result from the man of the Omega Symbol taking in the words glowing with light.

Pleiadian Symbol: The king of an unknown land sends a letter to the known world.

Azoth Symbol: The heart of a house is located, cleared of discordant energy, and strengthened.

Seed degree: 10 Aries. In many different places a man keeps seeing the same number. (Omega symbol). This recurring coincidence is attempting to draw one back to one's spiritual core.

Roots of a tree entwined around the nude statue of a woman. (Chandra Symbol). A deeper and clearer understanding of the feminine principle strengthens one in one's most inner sanctum.

Fulfillment degree: Libra 23. A young boy leading a giant ox. (Omega Symbol). Being centered in oneself makes it possible to direct one's power and to control it with gentleness and caring.

A tremendous boulder hovering over the ocean. (Chandra symbol). When one deeply connects to one's core life is connected to in a lighter, freer, more elevated manner.

Capricorn 2. A painting which causes those who see it to become silent. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Sensitive

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

This degree knows how to induce receptivity in other people, that is, how to get them to receive information more deeply, through catching them off guard.. Often without knowing it it has a compelling presence and can trigger thoughts and awareness in other people which it didn't mean to. It can open up new and unexpected ways of seeing.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A wisdom tooth that has been removed from someone's mouth. It is plated with gold.” This is an image of the essentializing of truth, the distilling of wisdom down to its simplest, most concentrated form – like the painting of the Omega Symbol that is so compelling as an experience it silences all debate, speculation and criticism. This degree is about cutting away the dead wood of knowledge – paring down to what is clear. What we think we know is so often very different from what we really know. But when stress is great enough and crisis occurs, we find out the difference between the two, and the eternal is clearly separated from the illusory. The truth of this degree is that we eventually we realize that we are the wisdom we seek.

Pleiadian Symbol: A mysterious colored window used to contact other worlds.

Azoth Symbol: An idea, like a tree, branches out in many different directions.

Seed degree: 22 Aries. A gentle, mild-mannered author who writes horror stories. (Omega Symbol). When we exorcise our fears we can come to a much deeper appreciation of the significance of what we've created in our life.

Puppets coming alive at night. (Chandra Symbol). When our imaginings take on a life of their own we are able to gain deep insight into ourselves.

Fulfillment degree: 23 Scorpio. A man repairing damaged inlays of precious stones on the Taj Mahal. (Omega Symbol). Entering the silence we return with a renewed ability to preserve and perfect all that is most beautiful and wonderful in our life.

A collection of dolls. (Chandra Symbol). Attuning to the deepest and purest wisdom allows us to see how personality works and to discern all its multifarious manifestations.

Capricorn 3. A reference book on poisons. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Receptive

(Degree Angel: Nemamiah (ne-MAM-mee-YAH) Listening to Your Soul, Discernment)

This degree is fascinated by the many manifestations of negativity, and looks continually for ways to counteract each different type. It is fascinated by the tremendous variety of disharmonies that exist in the world and all the multifarious problems they can create. The knowledge it accumulates can be used to help others in many different ways, but it has to beware of pessimism and cynicism that could potentially accumulate within its own self.

The Chandra symbol for this degree is “A woman sniffing pepper and sneezing violently.” This is a degree of direct and immediate reaction. It is instantly rejecting of anything that it senses might cause it discord. If it is willing to look deeply into itself so as to come to an understanding about why it has the strong reactions it does, it will be able to let go of them and hence clear karma. It is important to remember that all poisons are simply a reflection of fears and other types of negativity inside ourselves.

It also has a strong sense of what is wrong, and which things are toxic and to what extent. This can be very helpful so long as it proceeds to healing and does not become stuck in being addicted to its problems.

Pleiadian Symbol: A man drinks in the essence of a forgotten dream.

Fulfillment degree: 23 Sagittarius. Strange tools no one knows how to use. (Omega Symbol). All seemingly negative things are eventually perceived as tools of learning, resulting in the challenge of finding out from them exactly what it is we need to learn.

A woman wearing many tiny bells. (Chandra Symbol). In rejecting irritants we find ourselves stimulated and clarified.

Capricorn 4. As a cliff erodes, a temple is in danger of collapsing. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Responsible
(Degree Angel: Yeialel (YAY-a-LEL) Letting Go, Mental Force)

Needs change, and when they do, structures that may have been depended on for a long time need to change too, to meet those new needs. That is what this degree is aware of. It taps into undercurrents of feeling and can see how these are eroding the landscape of human thought. At its best its capable of suggesting means of change that take into account the long range and which are practical.

The Chandra symbol for this degree is “Footprints in the snow.” This degree is psychically aware of energy traces that have been left both in this life and ones that linger from other lifetimes. The question is, shall it follow one of these, or strike out on its own. It has the persistent feeling, always in the back of its mind that all this has happened before. This feeling is present so that hopefully it may gain more awareness of why things are unfolding the way they are, and this time either work through them or overcome them, so they can be let go of, clearing the way for further growth.

Pleiadian Symbol: For a journey down river people turn into eels.

Azoth Symbol: In the night a prehistoric caveman hears the ticking of a clock.

Fulfillment degree: Capricorn 23. While their bodies sleep, a group of people meet on the astral plane. (Omega Symbol).

Capricorn 5. A photographer hand-coloring a landscape. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Inspired

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

This degree knows how to combine imagination and reality in a harmonious way. It imbues whatever it touches with its own unique aura, which brings out the vividness and beauty of them, as well as expressing the originality of the self. It is an antidote for dreariness and commonness, for it causes others to realize the spiritual elements at work in everything around them.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Tall dark cypress trees in a cemetery.” This degree is about getting above all death and change so that it can be seen as necessary and important in the whole picture of existence. The uplifting and enduring presence of the cypress trees in the cemetery bring hope and joy to the scene, the same way that the colors used by the photographer in the corresponding Omega symbol also do.

Pleiadian Symbol: Long boats on the way to festivities down river.

Azoth Symbol: People walking in a cool arcade of stone arches.

Seed degree: Taurus 28. A man channeling a set of degree symbols. (Omega Symbol). When we creatively embrace the whole of life and allow ourselves to experience its completeness, we naturally bring our own individual beauty to everything that we become a part of.

A man making candles out of beeswax. (Chandra Symbol). Finding ways to share our light with other people moves us toward a deeply rooted and grounded way of supporting all spiritual seeking.

Fulfillment degree: Aquarius 23. In a catacomb, a room decorated with hundreds of skulls and bones. (Omega Symbol).

Seeing death for the natural process that it is, and realizing that it provides us with a powerful way of assisting us in our spiritual growth, we are freed to live a more casual, spontaneous existence in which we savor all of life's mysteries.
