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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
