(145) Omega/Chandra Symbols: Sagittarius 6 - 10

Phase 50. Enough is Never Enough (Daled Nun Yud)

Angel: Daniel (DA-nee-EL) Eloquence


Sagittarius 6. In a red desert, a lush, green plantation produced by irrigation. (Omega Symbol)Interacting/Experimental

(Degree Angel: Omael (O-ma-EL) Building Bridges, Fertility, Multiplicity
Defeats frustration, despair and depression)

This degree makes the best of what it finds at hand, and can create its own rich and productive environment even in the midst of a harsh or unsupportive outer landscape. When there are forces against which to contend, this degree can be supremely resourceful and find a way to thrive against all odds. Inherent in its energy is a strong denial of poverty consciousness.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A pair of shoes with live wings on each.” When feet can fly then one is not limited to earthly paths but can follow the paths of the air which are ever-changing and free. This limitless and unbounded approach to life is like the lush green plantation of the Omega Symbol, which may be anywhere because it brings its own water to itself rather than having to depend on environment and climate. This degree is light, airy and luxurious. Just as the water of the Omega symbol is made to connect with the plantation, the wings on the shoes of the Chandra Symbol allow one to connect with anything needed or desired that will cause one, like the plantation, to thrive.

This degree is determined to create an oasis, a haven, maybe a little Eden, and to blithely soar above problems and limitations in the process of doing so. This may be, in its lower stages of development, unrealistic, but in higher stages it taps in to the magic of abundance. Which makes sense because, Kabbalistically, its a degree sub-ruled by Taurus.

Pleiadian Symbol: On a ball court children chasing a large soap bubble.

Azoth Symbol: Dance music heard from afar invites people to festivities.

Seed degree: Gemini 9. A ruby growing in a laboratory. (Omega Symbol). Bringing a sense of meaning and purpose to our creativity helps us to find new ways of nurturing others and supporting life.

Wild flowers growing around the ruins of a temple. (Chandra Symbol). Coming back into a state of humbleness and simplicity after the subsiding of grandiose or complex schemes frees us to communicate lightly and swiftly within an expanded reality.

Fulfillment degree: Virgo 21. A geologist studying bands of rock in a cliff. (Omega symbol). Our striving to bring into our life those changes which will fulfill us leads us eventually into a more expanded exploration of how the processes of change work in general.

Dark river and distant bell. (Chandra Symbol). When we allow ourselves to explore beyond the boundaries of the known we enter into obscure spaces, but can be guided through them by attentiveness to our inner guiding light.

Sagittarius 7. A mirror covered with a shroud. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Sensitive

(Degree Angel: Lecabel (LAY-ca-BEL) Finish what you start, Intellectual Talent)

This degree has an instinct for looking beyond appearances into the deep core of things. It cares not for how and what something appears to be, but has a burning desire to know what it really is. There is an ability here to remain uninfluenced by others and to maintain a deep personal integrity. We might title this degree “The Denial of the Surface.”

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Rats with ruby eyes.” Ruby is the gem of the Sun, and so these rat eyes bring illumination to dark places, to seek out anything which will support the process of surviving. In the Omega Symbol no one or anything is allowed to see itself, whereas in the Chandra symbol the eyes of the rats have X-ray vision and can see what is deeply hidden.

There is nothing in the mirror except for the shroud, and then when the shroud is removed the light recreates everything outside the mirror inside the mirror. And so when we are intensely seeking something outside ourselves we must always remember that we are also and most importantly seeking it within ourselves, and when we find it in the inner, it will appear in the outer.

This degree is penetrating, sharp, and acutely observant.

Pleiadian Symbol: A glowing fairy flies into the room of a sleeping maiden.

Azoth Symbol: Books organized by one method and then reorganized by another.

Seed degree: Gemini 21. A healer breaks up adhesions beneath an old wound. (Omega Symbol). Finding and clearing out the stuck and stagnant places within reinforces our ability to stay with the here and now rather than getting lost in reflections and projections.

Wine casks retrieved from an ancient shipwreck. (Chandra Symbol). Drinking deep of the past's magic we are granted penetrating visions of hidden realms.

Fulfillment degree: Libra 21. The sea as still as a mirror. (Omega Symbol). When we are able to let go of illusions, the peace and clarity we attain to attunes us to exalted spiritual realities.

A magician with a live snake for a belt. (Chandra Symbol). Attuning ourselves to our own personal and living wisdom we find ourselves having penetrating insight that can see into the darkness and inspire us with the cleverness to survive and thrive.

Sagittarius 8. Experts arguing over the authenticity of a painting. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Receptive

(Degree Angel: Vasariah (va-SAH-ree-Yah) Memories, Clemency and Equilibrium)

This degree loves to speculate concerning mysteries, and to look more and more closely at anything to gain clues about the nature of reality. Attachment to particular opinions is always found to be restrictive, but when an openness to new ideas is present, this degree has a genius for uncovering new truths and new aspects of anything to which it turns its attention.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “The harsh landscape of the moon with a black sky. The Earth is not visible.” If we can't see the Earth from the Moon then we know we are on the dark side of the Moon – in the land of Hidden Emotions. This very bleak, foreboding image is in the optimistic sign of Sagittarius, and signifies Sagittarius meeting those forces which are most against its positive and upward-looking attitude. To confront and move through these is difficult, and may severely test one's spiritual self-confidence, but this degree is ready and willing to do the work.

As to the corresponding Omega Symbol, whatever conclusions the experts come to, the painting in question is what it is, and might be at once a fake – meaning a forgery – and a beautiful painting – even a masterpiece. And even though we can have many different opinions about it, our attitudes and beliefs concerning it do not change the painting itself.

The experts are judges, and whatever judgments they decide upon, it is best ultimately to focus on enjoying the painting, or, if judging is your art form, to enjoy doing that. – for judging can be a form of playful detective work if you make it so, and this is far better then making it the grim, condeming and blaming thing that corresponds to the harshness of the Chandra symbol. Either way, a light and appreciative attitude will help to prevent becoming stuck in the joyless, lifeless environment of the Chandra Symbol.

Pleiadian Symbol: Opals splintering and releasing colors.

Azoth Symbol: Frustrated in their search for higher consciousness, people pursue novelty everywhere in the world.

Seed degree: Cancer 3. In a crowd a man keeps seeing people he thinks he knows but can't remember from where. (Omega Symbol). When we tune in to the eternal nature reflected in the ephemeral and passing things around us, we come to realize that truth has many sides to it.

A set of surgical instruments. (Chandra Symbol). When we carefully and patiently delve deeply into ourselves we find profound and hidden connections to realms beyond the earthly.

Fulfillment degree: Scorpio 21. The wind whirling thousands of loose manuscript pages. (Omega Symbol). Debate is carried to the point of the disintegration of ideas, which can be an experience of freeing and opening up.

A pair of glasses with no lenses in them. (Chandra Symbol). When we are able to get beyond earth-bound concerns we come back to earth and can see more clearly, and are also aware of the limitations and restrictions we have been putting on our experience.

Sagittarius 9. An invisible burden carried on the shoulders. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Responsible

(Degree Angel: Yehuiah (yay-Hoo-ee-YAH) Revealing the Dark Side, Subordination to Higher Order)

All problems are problems because of who we are, and this degree senses this truth deeply, though at times may not know what to do about it. Each burden we carry is actually the burden of karma, which is our psyche. This degree can subtly work with the beliefs of other people to help them lighten their consciousness and to see that it is their beliefs which are the ultimate oppressors.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A man with green skin. He is dressed in leaves.” This degree is not fully invisible, but blends in with nature, and when it is able to do this it experiences a great freedom and expansiveness. It it can just allow itself to be, without the coercion of agendas and the compulsion of what it feels it SHOULD do, a marvelous naturalness emerges that is powerful and so very uplifting that it finally causes the burden of the Omega Symbol to disappear.

Pleiadian Symbol: A woman leading her children up a dark tower.

Azoth Symbol: Grasslands teeming with insects and their sounds.

Seed degree: Cancer 15. A man in an air-conditioned space suit crossing the desert. (Omega Symbol). When we can create our own little world as a means of surviving the bleak and foreboding parts of our soul journey, we can then come to know what it is that oppresses us, and eventually throw it off.

A boarded-up doorway that leads to another realm. (Chandra Symbol). To open up to a greater reality is to affirm ourselves as intimately connected to nature, and hence the owners of a fabulous bounty.

Fulfillment degree: Sagittarius 21. Deep in the jungle travelers discover the ruins of an ancient city. (Omega Symbol). To throw off any burden is, in the balance of things, to also discover a great treasure.

Toads singing at night. (Chandra Symbol). When we tune in to our deep connectedness to nature the vibrations we emanate spontaneously call to kindred souls who are also on our wavelength.

Sagittarius 10. A man being followed by a spaceship. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Inspired

(Degree Angel: Lehahiah (Lay-HA-hee-YAH) Forget Thyself, Obedience)

This degree is constantly being invited to embark on journeys and adventures. If it refuses these offers there will not go away but will continue to pursue the person wherever he goes. The way out of this stress is to give in to the adventure, for it is actually the heart that is calling, and the true self that wants to be found.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A star turning many different colors.” You tend to find one thing that you become fascinated by, and then as you behold it steadily you see many different nuances and facets within it – it becomes to you a symbol of the whole world. You feel that as you look at it it looks at you, that you are being pursued by it, just as the man of the Omega Symbol is being followed by the space ship. This fixity and obsessiveness is your natural way of being, and if you give yourself over to it and set the intention that you wish to learn anything and everything from this experience that will benefit you, it will give you more and more. The challenge here is to take it all in, gradually as it comes, over time, and to not be afraid to move in closer to this source of light, for it is the universe's gift to you, as well as your gift to yourself.

Pleiadian Symbol: In a woman's blond hair flowing in the wind a man sees all sorts of pictures.

Azoth Symbol: God worshiped in the form of a smooth, featureless stone.

Seed degree: Cancer 27. A book of strange and imaginary prophecies. (Omega Symbol). When we tune in to the tremendous possibilities that surround us, we draw to us those forces that can help us to actualize the ones we need most to bring into reality.

A woman giving birth to twins. (Chandra Symbol). When we open up to new possibilities of communication we see far more facets to everything we encounter.

Fulfillment degree: Capricorn 21. As a woman moves down a passageway, many hands reach out to touch her. (Omega Symbol). Making contact with new possibilities we find both energies that come at us for the purpose of holding us back and energies that seek to encourage our progress. Ultimately we find that both of these encourage our progress in the end.

A stately old house in a ruined condition. (Chandra Symbol). When we tune in to the eternal enchantment of cosmic beauty, we then question the need to always be trying to keep things the same, and to always be desperately fighting off the ravages of time.
