Phase 49. Happiness (Vav Hey Vav)
Angel: VEHUEL (Vay-hoo-EL) Elevation, Grandeur
Sagittarius 1. A woman who writes so much in her diary she has no time for anything else. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Experimental
(Degree Angel: HAHEUIAH (ha-HOO-ee-YAH) Overcoming Jealousy, Protection)
A highly inward degree, full of complex thoughts and feelings and an endless array of impulses and reactions. When driven by neurosis, chaotic and confusing and running in circles, but if one can track with the guidance of the higher self they will be lead to all those places within that need to be healed. Attunement to spirit finds the way forward.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A woman manacled in solid gold chains.” If you are going to be bound to something, it is important to be connected to something truly meaningful, and not just meaningful to the little ego. This degree feels its connections with the world to be important. It has a deep need to be bound and tied to something it feels has meaning. At worst it may confer that sense of importance on things which are negative, dysfunctional and which retard its spiritual progress. But if it ties itself to those things which can eventually free it by fostering its growth, then it will have truly fulfilled its deepest needs.

The famous diarist Tanasia Ralaam is thought of as one of the great writers of her age. Her diaries were published as she wrote them, each volume consisting of a five year period of her life. And although she never went anywhere outside her own abode her days were filled with
fantasies of all the things things she might do, all the people she might meet, the friends and romances she might have, and far places she might travel.
At her death her papers were found to contain nearly 100 years of advance diaries which speculate in great and vivid detail on the future life she might have had, had she not died.

Even in the darkest and most difficult of situations this degree can feel those forces which are ever present and always ready to guide him. This degree might be named “The Glimmer of Hope,” which is something this degree can always find. Although the outer demeanor here may be soft and passive there is a tremendous underlying confidence which can sneak silently in and inspire other people.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Many iris blooming in a wide variety of colors.” Vast beauty is tapped into here, a beauty which is fleeting and evanescent. This degree is highly creative. Its inspirations are elusive – quickly coming and going. The challenge here is to accept this fragile, passing quality and go with that, to faithfully move with the energy when it's there, and to not try to capture or contain it in the sense of limiting it or regulating its ephemeral nature.
The secret of this degree is that when we let finally and completely accept the truth that all beauty will pass away, we realize also that beauty is continually being reborn, and then we are able to live within beauty as eternal flux.

It is said by the wise that stars, which carry such potent and endlessly diverse wisdom, will sometimes enter the bodies of small beings such as insects or small animals so as to transmit their energies to humans in a form that is easier to receive, and that often when a particular star
wishes to impart its influence to a certain human it will seek out that person through such a living form, so that its powers may be assimilated by that person subtly, and without the disturbing influence of conscious knowledge.
Sagittarius 3. No one is sure if the journey has ended. (Omega Symbol) Manfesting/Receptive
(Degree Angel: YERATEL (YEH-ra-TEL) Silent Partner, Propagation of the Light)
This person has a genius for connecting everything, for weaving the various parts of life together into a whole that is unlimited because it knows no end. The impulse to forward movement is relentless, the person always desiring to go further, sometimes without even being sure of what the goal is. This may wear out those who yearn for a stopping place, and frustrate those who seek closure, but the discoveries made by the restlessness found here can be priceless.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Clouds overhead seen in a reflecting pool” Here are surfaces onto which illusions are projected, creating a feeling of great depth that reflects a great height, and all filled with passing nebulousness. This is an extremely imaginative degree, which allows anything possible to be envisioned. It is the antidote to neat little ways of being that are cut and dried, and like the uncertainty of its corresponding Omega Symbol it refuses to put up any permanent walls.
Confusing it well may be, but to see confusion as negative is a value judgement of the rational mind. We might call this degree “The glories of confusion,” and find that out of confusion truths of the most fantastic shapes and sizes are continually being born.
Or again we might say that the Path of Confusion is just as valid a way as any other to reach higher consciousness.

Fulfillment degree: Gemini 21. A healer breaks up adhesions beneath an old wound. (Omega Symbol). When we maintain our openness to the possibilites of further change we find ourselves drawn to those old stuck places iin our being which may have become so taken-for-granted that our awareness had lost touch with them.

Once they had found where the treasure was supposed to be, they realized that what the treasure was was something intangible, and so leaving they went their separate ways, each wondering if they carried the treasure with them, some feeling almost certain they did, others waiting for a sign or some internal shift that might announce its presence.
And yes, eventually over many years all of them decided they had received something from their quest, some ineffable essence which continued to mutate, and to change them as it did, and which they occasionally felt they had found for a moment within themselves, but which would then allude them again, impelling them to seek ever further.

As long as this degree focuses on what it needs to do and lets go of any apprehensions concerning the ramifications of its actions, it can live true to itself.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A young prince undressed to bathe in a pool.” The young man puts himself in a vulnerable position by taking away all the barriers between himself and nature. He then enters the water, the sacred womb of the mother to be refreshed, cleansed and purified. This degree is about seeking direct experience by divesting oneself of preconceptions and social conditionings, and by also letting go of assertiveness and agendas so as to have a full experience of what's right there in front of one.
It's not easy to give oneself completely over to the feminine. It requires a lot of macho courage and gutsiness.

Fulfillment degree: Cancer 21. A man milking a poisonouw snake of its venom so that he can make an antidote. (Omega Symbol).

He spoke, morning and evening, for several hours each day, telling what he knew, imagining questions coming from non-existent students, and then answering them, the questions often leading off into other topics and other realms of knowledge. He know not the bounds or limits of his knowing, for as he spoke he learned more, the knowledge rising to the surface like water from a bottomless spring.
Centuries later the room where that happened became a place where students came to sit, bookless, their eyes closed, absorbing the reverberations which still could be felt faintly echoing from the walls, and which awakened in them other, hidden springs.

(Degree Angel: Reiyel (RAY-ee-YEL) Removing Hatred, Liberation, Helps to remove obstacles and impediments, and to live in a universe without boundaries)
Here is an ability to track with the feelings and impulses of other people, to feel a deep rapport between the self and others. This fosters a sense of connectedness and encourages the mutual release of pent-up energies. There's an ability to both guide and to be guided and this give and take generates an intimacy that dissolves the illusion of the self's limits.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Three women materializing out of a fog.” The woman are the goddesses of the past, present, and the future, they are also the weavers of the great and endless tapestry of fate. They come out of nowhere and everywhere. The ego self finds these three women terrifying, for their fatalistic pronouncements are not to be disobeyed. But the spiritual self knows them as teachers of the highest order. Dreams are one of their most potent teaching tools.
And while they work it may seem that not much is going on in the outer world, for their workings proceed deep within, to heal the root of karma. This is an irrational and mystic degree. If it tries to follow the agendas and ways of the world, misery and suffering will be the result. If it cuts loose and flows with the inner magic, freedom, potency and pure knowing will arise.
