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.

(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.

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.

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.

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.
