(167) Omega/Chandra Symbols: Pisces 26 - 30

Phase 72. Spiritual Cleansing (Mem Vav Mem)

Angel: MUMIAH (MOO-mee-YAH) Endings and Rebirth

Pisces 26. A writer endlessly revising his work. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Experimental

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

This degree is always moving deeper into the attempt to express itself. It is attempting to overcome the barriers that stand in the way of connecting with other people, and so works with whatever it has as a vehicle of communication, trying now this and now that way of transmitting its ideas. If it can put aside frustration and any feelings of alienation as it approaches this task slowly and patiently, the results can open up new vistas of understanding,

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “The aurora borealis.” This degree focus on the over lighting spiritual forces at work in all situations. It sees everything in an expanded context, as being imbued with overtones and shimmerings of the divine. This awareness is not easy to express, but the mere witnessing of it brings some of this energy into the world around them and helps others to loosen up and lighten up, and to soften the tightness of their focus. Just as the writer of the Omega Symbol through constant revision is trying to allow more and more of his vision to shine through his words, the one who witnesses the northern lights needs to accept into his mundane existence the beautiful iridescence streaming in from the spiritual world.

Pleiadian Symbol: Within the shadowed part of the moon a tiny momentary flare of light is seen.

Azoth Symbol: On a lawn boys chasing a ball that seems to have a life of its own.

Seed degree: Aquarius 12. A man struck by lightning is miraculously unharmed. (Omega Symbol). Having contacted the full force of our inspiration, we now wish to allow it to shine through our works.

A heated argument turns into laughter. (Chandra Symbol). The lightness of laughter opens our perception to the spiritual light.

Fulfillment degree: Scorpio 30. Former reflections appearing on a mirror. (Omega Symbol). Deeper and deeper realizations about what we are doing leading to a synthesis of past energies into the present moment.

A very dark sky, but no rain. (Chandra Symbol). Having seen the promises of what lies beyond, we can now cope with current oppressions.

Pisces 27. A spider searching its web. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Sensitive

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

Whatever we become entangled with by circumstances must be something that we need, for everything is there for us to learn from. This degree know that truth and so is very accepting of anything that comes its way – always trying to figure out the relationship of that thing to itself. Its magic is the ability to transform the seemingly random into the deeply meaningful.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A ritual sand painting.” Here is the desire to bring all of one's vision and aliveness into the moment, without having to worry about the future or what it holds. The sand painting reveals the underlying cosmic patterns of the universe. It shows us something, but because the grains of sand are not fixed, and will be thrown to the winds once the painting is completed, it reminds us that these cosmic patterns it reveals are actually within us – we are living them. Can we, like the spider of the Omega Symbol, search our mind to see if we have captured the meaning of them?

This degree carries the emphatic message that we need to align ourselves with the energies of the moment in the cosmic dance, and not worry about the future, for the present wholly and fully lived will give birth to the most beautiful of futures.

Pleiadian Symbol: A golden moon, newly arisen.

Azoth Symbol: A man, having fainted, returns with the memory of a dream.

Seed degree: Aquarius 24. A helicopter depositing a man on the top of the Great Pyramid. (Omega Symbol). Direct access to spiritual awareness allows us to see our desires and needs in a new way – allows us to understanding what our karma has captured and drawn to us.

A large brown bear picking and eating apples. (Chandra Symbol). Seeking immediate and spontaneous nourishment we come into a realization of the ephemeral patterns of reality, and a greater harmony with them.

Fulfillment degree: Sagittarius 30.By time traveling, a man takes a photograph of dinosaurs. (Omega Symbol). Seeking for something to nurture ourselves we probe deeply into our needs, which carries us to their roots in the past.

The completion of a large Persian rug. (Chandra Symbol). When attachment to set forms is given up, we find within ourselves the freedom to achieve closure where closure is needed and appropriate.

Pisces 28. A shy poet in hiding. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Receptive

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

A very sensitive spirit is here, and a great need to be attuned to the self in a supportive way so that what it needs to express may come forth. This degree seeks to avoid the opinions, input and other static of the outside world so that it may be itself with a complete lack of inhibition. It needs to find a space in which what is within may be coaxed to come forth.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A hoard of monkeys chattering.” The mind is multi-leveled and multi-faceted, never at rest, always playing with ideas. This degree is acutely aware of this, and at best knows how to overcome the stress, distractions, and diversions these monkeys can create.

The two symbols here seem diametrically opposed, for the shy poet is singular, and rather than chattering like the monkeys has chosen to retreat from the world. The poet hides so as to hear his own inner voice. The chattering monkeys are the world. Whether this degree chooses to be a part of the world, or to find a place apart from it, the need is to listen to the higher self, which can be heard in silence, or if one has developed the art of focus and non-attachment, even heard in the midst of the world's chatterings.

Pleiadian Symbol: Statues and fountains at night in a summer garden.

Azoth Symbol: Dawn's first gleams on a golden dome.

Seed degree: Pisces 6. Crystals deep in the earth aware of the sunshine above. (Omega Symbol). Aware of the spiritual light toward which we are ever growing, we are able to let go of the world and its demands and concentrate on the processes of our creativity and imagination.

An Inca chief wearing many emeralds. (Chandra Symbol). Focusing on the great beauty and value of connecting with others we are able to place our consciousness beyond the confusion of the mind's chattering.

Fulfillment degree: Capricorn 30. A crystal made in a laboratory is buried in the ground. (Omega Symbol). The light-filled poems of the poet are placed in the ground to heal the earth, and be discovered by future generations.

Blue morning glories growing up a tall trellis. (Chandra Symbol). The chatterings of the mind are grown beyond as we take on the color of the clear sky and climb beyond the lower frequencies of negative karmic loops.

Pisces 29. A book of healing mantras. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Responsible

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

At its highest this degree senses what is needed in every situation. It realizes that where the focus of attention is placed is where energy will be magnified. We become what we focus on. There is a feeling here for the symbols that recur to us, the ideas that flow through us in repetitive fashion – and the ability to use these as keys to greater understanding and a way off the wheel of karma.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Balinese dancers wearing elaborate gold costumes.” To make everything beautiful, everything important – golden and shining – is the power and the art of this degree. The dancers tell many stories through their movements, but in each story they all wear the same gold costumes, just as in life no matter what role we play we may always bring to it a spiritually elevated, cosmic element. In whatever this degree does there can be a sublime grace and elegance. The need here is to realize that gift and through focusing on it, to magnify it as much as possible.

Pleiadian Symbol: The shifting and modulating of light frequencies creating messages in color.

Azoth Symbol: A line in a drawing is reminding a woman of many things.

Seed degree: Pisces 18.A dressmaker fashioning beautiful gowns for a queen. (Omega Symbol). Searching for the clearest vehicle through which to manifest our spiritual self, our focus on universal truth becomes simpler and purer.

White lilies blooming alone in the shade. (Chandra Symbol). From a cool, clear purity evolves beautiful rituals through which cosmic meaning is expressed.

Fulfillment degree: Aquarius 30.For many years, on an island, people dig deeper and deeper to find a treasure. (Omega Symbol). Continuing over and over to return one's focus to connecting with spirit, one naturally helps others in the pursuit of the goal of evolution.

A large pool filled with white water lilies in bloom. (Chandra Symbol). To envision the grace and beauty shining forth from everything brings to the world an emotional peace and clarity that one desires to share with others.

Pisces 30. A dense forest of organ pipes. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Inspired

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

This degree is aware of the vast number of possibilities in life and of the music that can arrive from all the potential interactions with the universe around it. What is to meet this plethora is the inspiration coming from inside – the music that arises from the self and is played out in lifetimes. The more we allow ourselves to flow the more what is most needed and beneficial for us will come forth from the inside as well as meet us from the outside. This is the truth of this degree.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A large halo in ring formation around the moon.” Pisces is the sign of acceptance, and here in its last degree acceptance reaches completion. So often we think we have accepted something only to find there are deeper levels to which we may go in this process. It is easy to accept what is beautiful and wonderful, but to accept all the rest, the ugly, the sad, the scary, the terrifying, that is where there is so much more of a tendency to reject or deny. This degree thinks in terms of bringing all emotions into the fold of the great and complete family of emotions, and the magic of it is finding that when all are accepted, the spiritual radiance reaches perfection, and we achieve the release for which we have been searching all along.

Pleiadian Symbol: A seer, on his back and gazing into the sky, becomes a channel for cosmic messages.

Azoth Symbol: An object of great beauty unearthed.

Seed degree: 30 Pisces is its own seed degree

Fulfillment degree: 30 Pisces is its own fulfillment degree

(166) Omega/Chandra Symbols: Pisces 21 - 25

Phase 71. Prophecy and Parallel Universes (Hey Yud Yud)

Angel: HAIYAEL (HA-ee-ya-EL) Divine warrior/Weaponry

Pisces 21. In a cold, harsh climate, a woman uses magic to create a lush garden. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Experimental

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

This degree is about creating one's own environment for whatever one is trying to accomplish. The forces of nature are eternal and always there when called upon, always willing to assist one if one will simply connect with them and ask for their help. At worst this degree isolates itself in its own dream world. At best it makes the dreamworld a reality and invites others to join in the enjoyment of it.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Pagan fire worshipers dancing at night." This degree brings light into the darkness and encourages others to join in the process of doing so. It is not about to fall prey to fear, depression, or the confusion of uncertainty. Its attitude is, “light a fire, make up a dance, call in the clan.” Even in tragedies and dark dramas it finds something to celebrate, for it knows that inevitably the light will conquer. It also knows that both the dark and light follow complex cycles, that both life and die and are born again. And so even in grim and hash times it is expectant of sparks which will kindle into new flames, providing new excuses for celebration.

Pleiadian Symbol: A wizard is showing a young girl and her dog the way to the cave of the gnomes.

Azoth Symbol: Someone thinks he sees in the distance the ghost of an old man walking across a moor.

Seed degree: Sagittarius 12.Reaching up, a man writes on the sky. (Omega Symbol). Communing with creative intelligence we are able to channel its energies into the physical world to create beauty and food for both ourselves and others.

Icicles melting. (Chandra Symbol). Sharp, jagged, repressed emotions thaw out. It makes us want to light fires and dance.

Fulfillment degree: Gemini 30. From far away, a sailor has brought home a carved idol. (Omega Symbol). The effects of magic suddenly appear, and we are surprised. Now we want to know from what distant realms beyond the usual they have come – what are their mythologies – and who their supporting actors?

Many glass animals on a shelf. (Chandra Symbol). The fire dancers dance away all uncertainty. The dance unwinds all confusion, is full of pure knowing. All becomes transparent.

Pisces 22. All sorts of things trying to distract a man as he engages in a creative endeavor. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Sensitive

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

This degree is about getting slowed down against one's will, which can result in a great accumulation of frustration – unless the right attitude is focused on. The right attitude is to become non-reactive and to allow one's creative impulses to flow with and around the obstructions, and to know that whatever appears to be going against one is there to increase one's focus and ability to be non-attached.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A blacksmith creating an ornate garden gate.” This degree is about making the best of even the most difficult situations. And to do so, of course, one has to go out and find all the most difficult people and situations that can be discovered. At best this degree is a hard worker who is doggedly determined to turn around even the most seemingly unredeemable state of affairs. The dangers here are (1) getting worn out or burnt out – hard working become abuse. (2) Continual failures creating successive layers of frustration until a mountain of it is built up.

The key here is adopting the right attitude. If the attitude is bitter, egotistical, cynical and self-righteous – hard like the blacksmith's iron – the goal will never be reached. If the attitude is loving, and receptive to guidance by higher forces, the iron can be heated and worked, and will yield to fulfilling the blacksmith's creative vision.

Pleiadian Symbol: A scientist discovering new equations that more completely explain the nature of the universe.

Azoth Symbol: Sailors about to be lured off course by the sound of seductive singing.

Seed degree: Sagittarius 24. A man in his imagination inventing flowers, the seeds of which magically appear. (Omega Symbol). Intuiting how easy the creative process is capable of being, we forge ahead with it, becoming eventually immune to everything that thwarts us.

A statue of Isis covered by a transparent veil. (Chandra Symbol). Seeing with our inward eye – although imperfectly – an inner vision of wholeness, we are inspired to patience and dogged persistence in attempting to fulfill that vision.

Fulfillment degree: Cancer 30.A woman with eyes in the palms of her hands and the soles of her feet. (Omega Symbol). The sincerity of our striving draws to us the goddess of mercy who offers to rescue us from the clouds of discord interrupting the flow of our inspiration.

Wild grapes growing everywhere. (Chandra Symbol). What has been arduous, difficult and recalcitrant eventually gives way to unbridled fecundity.

Pisces 23. In a museum, paintings are admiring people as they pass by. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Receptive

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

Everything we think and every product of our imagination has a life of its own. This degree is deeply aware of this fact and acutely senses the aliveness of even those things which materialists think of as inanimate. At best here is a vast and complete rapport with everything, which is the key to unending wealth. We are in the midst of our prosperity – all we need to do is see it and work with it.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Someone lurking in a dark wood. They are waiting for a passerby.” Whatever we refuse to confront in the light of everyday will lie in way for us to grab us when we are most unsuspected and unaware. Because o f fear and apprehension its easy to interpret this symbol as a robber or attacker looking for a victim, but it might also be seen as someone who has a message for us, but who, for one reason or another, has not been able to make contact through the normal channels. At worst this degree may suffer from a continual undertone of apprehension. The antidote to this is to approach life with the attitude that everything that occurs is happening to teach one something. And to know that those parts of ourselves which have not yet been integrated into our consciousness are not enemies, but rather powers waiting to contribute their voice to the chorus which is us.

Pleiadian Symbol: At a séance the room fills with the scent of roses and a consoling female voice.

Azoth Symbol: In the heat of the summer, spiritual lessons quietly offered in the shade.

Seed degree: Capricorn 6. A woman inventing magical perfumes. (Omega Symbol). The scent of the perfumes awakens our sensitivity to formerly unseen realms and their denizens.

An ancient gold scarab lying in the sand. (Chandra Symbol). A precious gift the lurker waits to give to the stranger – or the one known long ago.

Fulfillment degree: Leo 30. A poetess wearing rings with large gemstones in them. She grasps her book of poems. (Omega Symbol). The life of whatever we create eventually gives back to us insights that lift us into the realization of eternal realities.

A woman sprinkling rose water in the four corners of a room. (Chandra Symbol). We come to meet our own karma, and then , whatever the nature of it, we eventually learn to give it the love that will raise us out of attachment to it.

Pisces 24. An empty perfume bottle, the scent completely gone. (Omega Symbol) Interactive/Responsible

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

This degree has an awareness of all the stories that have ever been told, and all the feelings that have ever been felt. It knows that there is ultimately nothing new. Cravings and desires are the materials from which the self creates dramas, and once all the dramas have been exhausted one is free to play the blissful game of consciousness without the burden of attachment.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A spring festival. The participants are in a state of ecstatic frenzy.” When we align with the energy of any particular time or aspect of a cycle, we take on its power. This degree is about being in tune with what is happening and going along with it in a wholehearted, exuberant way. When we give in to the urge to celebrate life we renew ourselves and realign with cosmic order.

It is interesting that the Omega Symbol for this degree alludes strongly to the past, whereas the Chandra Symbol presents a joyous present that looks on the future with hope. Be it past, present or future, this degree is about savoring the moment, be that moment laden with memories, hopes, or simply embracing an immediate joy.

Pleiadian Symbol: Searching for a lost friend a man lands on a remote island.

Azoth Symbol: A man visits his own history in the Akashic Records.

Seed degree: Capricorn 18. A forgotten painting stored in a vault. (Omega Symbol). Pictures of the past, lost to memory leave residues in the imagination.

A black leopard with green eyes. (Chandra Symbol). Fierce and wild desires burst forth, activated by the light of a new cycle.

Fulfillment degree: Virgo 30. A man catching a ripe fruit as it falls off a tree. (Omega Symbol). The vagueness of the past becomes focused in the fulness and completeness of the moment.

Supersensible beings appearing as geometric forms. (Chandra Symbol). Abundant joy transmutes into a connection with the patterns of nature and with the consciousness working through them.

Pisces 25. On top of a high hill, a circle of standing stones. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Inspired
(Degree Angel: Eyael (AY-ya-EL) Great Expectations, Transformation to the Sublime)

There is a point where human striving has to give in to pure receptivity, and at that point what may have seemed so very difficult to accomplish is found to be effortless. This degree is capable of direct attunement with the light and is able to uplift and refine even the heaviest and darkest of frequencies. It might be called “lightness of being.” It's ultimate challenge is how to communicate this lightness to others in a way they can take in.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “People and animals frightened during an eclipse.” The shock of the unexpected can wake us up so that we see our reality in a new way. There is nothing to be afraid of here, but the people and animals do not know this, until, after only a few minutes normality returns. And it is to be remembered that even though solar eclipses only happen about twice a year, this degree lives continually in that state of surprise that the eclipse has produced. It is always tapping in to the strangeness of life, and the energies at work beneath the surface and beyond the pale that our perceptions have set up.

Because of this ability to tap in to a greater reality this degree can subtly (and sometimes quite overtly) shock others into new awarenesses. And those awareness have to do with bringing that which was unconscious (The Moon) into alignment with the consciousness (The Sun), so that insight is gained into the hidden aspects of self. All of this happening quite spontaneously and surprizingly.

Pleiadian Symbol: At the river, singing and purification by water.

Azoth Symbol: A beautiful city suffused with an emerald glow.

Seed degree: Capricorn 30. A crystal made in a laboratory is buried in the ground. (Omega Symbol). To bless and heal the earth invites help from the spirits from above.

Blue morning glories growing up a tall trellis. (Chandra Symbol). Climbing ever higher we experience the shock of convergence of who we thought was ourselves with our true self.

Fulfillment degree: Libra 30. A small, pale moon in the afternoon. (Omega Symbol). Focusing and exalting our energies, we come eventually into the realization of the nature of subtlety.

A black rooster. (Chandra Symbol). The convergence of the darkness with the light awakens us to possibilities that transcend the normal and expected.

(165) Omega/Chandra Symbols: Pisces 16 - 20

Phase 70. Recognizing Design Beneath Disorder

Angel: JABAMIAH (ya-BA-mee-YAH) Alchemy (Transformation)

Pisces 16. A troll living under a bridge. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Experimental

(Degree Angel: Yeialel (YAY-a-LEL) Letting Go, Mental Force)

This degree seeks a simple, independent and often isolated existence on the periphery of human endeavors. It knows how to get along with little, and avoids complexities that might get in the way of its intensely inward focus. It has highly unique gifts and knows how to work silently and unobtrusively to make special contributions to the world – contributions that may be beyond the comprehension of others.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A peaceful child on a narrow ledge that overlooks a precipice.” This degree finds itself in limiting, confining situations, but rather than struggling against these takes an innocent, calm approach to them, often simply observing them and waiting. And often, this serene attitude and attentiveness will dissolve problems that seemed at first insurmountable. The precipice could be threatening, and so could the troll under the bridge. If we wish to cross the bridge, or descend into the precipice, or remove ourselves from it, we must be sensitive to what the situation requires, to what we need to do to to make the desired transition. This degree, subruled by the cautious sign of Capricorn, might be called the degree of “patient outworking.”

Pleiadian Symbol: A river of ideas and images entering our reality.

Azoth Symbol: Someone finding new and meaningful arrangements of numbers.

Seed degree: Libra 12.A man gathering seeds from a white morning glory. (Omega Symbol). Finding tiny grains of hope which offer us expanded consciousness in the future, we are then ready to face whatever fears we might encounter in our process of evolving.

The burning of a bough of sage. (Chandra Symbol). Purifying the atmosphere and dispersing all disharmonious thoughts we are ready to innocently and openly address current challenges.

Fulfillment degree: Capricorn 29.At dusk, a woman in a garden picking lettuce. (Omega Symbol). Having overcome whatever has obstructed our path forward we are able to emotionally refresh ourselves, rest, and take nourishment.

An architect carefully surveying old ruins. (Chandra Symbol). Simply and innocently observing the life we find ourselves in we become more and more acutely aware of the past and how it has shaped the present moment.

Pisces 17. Getting on his hands and knees, a man uses a piece of white chalk to draw a circle around himself. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Sensitive

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

This degree has an intuitive sense of how to protect itself and how to filter out influences that might be disturbing or disruptive to it. It is always able to find a space in which to work, and has a special gift for clearing the atmosphere so that room is made to do whatever needs to be accomplished. And if it follows its impulses, the result will always be magic working through it.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A kangaroo and her baby who looks out from the mother's pouch.” When a baby kangaroo is born it immediately crawls into the pouch, which is like a second womb, and which contains a nipple that it immediately affixes itself to. And so for kangaroos birth is a slow, gradual process that happens in states. It is the opposite of a creature like the horse, who falls out of the womb and within minutes is standing up. The image signifies that this degree at its highest experiences the universe as a great mother who eternally offers safety and protection. It may feel isolated and different from others, but with usually no sense of alienation. It knows that we are all children who are being raised and taken care of by a reality that is utterly intent on our reaching enlightenment.

Pleiadian Symbol: People dressed in a vivid array of colors come together to celebrate spring.

Azoth Symbol: Someone helping a distraught woman to open to angelic love.

Seed degree: Libra 24.Gemstones buried in the ground in the pattern of the constellation Orion. (Omega Symbol). The deep inner wisdom that has been with us through all our incarnations will, if allowed to, show us how to take action to protect and support ourselves in this life.

A chameleon with moving pictures appearing on its back. (Chandra Symbol). Being willing to relate to life in all possible ways and allowing ourselves to completely interact with everything and everyone we encounter, we grow into the ability to see the world as our mother, and ourselves as the mother of our world

Fulfillment degree: Aquarius 29. An old poetess eating green melon in a shady garden. (Omega Symbol). Inscribing ourselves in a circle of protection we are then free to be our true self, live our deepest wisdom, and partake of the beauty of nature.

The sound of dripping water echoes through a great stone room. (Chandra Symbol). Experiencing intimate union with the divine mother we spontaneously become acutely sensitized to the depths of all emotions – both our own and others.

Pisces 18. A dressmaker fashioning beautiful gowns for a queen. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Receptive

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

This degree may be thought of as an ambassador of the feminine energy, in that it helps others to be aware of the sustaining, nurturing and fructifying consciousness of the universe. It is able to bring forth beauty in a manner that is healing and soothing to others, and even if and when it seems modest, always has an undercurrent of directing the awareness of others to the glories of nature.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “White lilies blooming alone in the shade.” There are so many things in the world to confuse and distract us and to cause us to lose our way. This degree has a magical ability to return to a pristine place of clarity, simplicity and beauty. It does this by turning its focus away from all outer discord, and by letting go of goals, agendas and desires. And even though it may at times only be able to do this for a moment, it is enough to imbue any situation with a new peace, a new sense that there is a light that shines beyond the nightmare and which, if we will only be receptive to it, can guide us out of any and all quagmires of darkness.

Pleiadian Symbol: An immense geodesic dome.

Azoth Symbol: A drawbridge interrupting traffic.

Seed degree: Scorpio 6.Unaccustomed to high altitudes, a woman breathes deeply and walks slowly. (Omega Symbol). Gradually and patiently taking into ourselves ever higher vibrations, we eventually find vehicles in our lives for the expression of them.

A dancer with eight arms. (Chandra Symbol). The more vividly the dance of karma is experienced, the more we purify, soften, and fill with light.

Fulfillment degree: Pisces 29.A book of healing mantras. (Omega Symbol). Working to more completely express the sublime and the cosmic we become ever freer and more creative in the expression of love, sympathy, and all positive emotions.

Balinese dancers wearing elaborate gold costumes. (Chandra Symbol). From a place of innocence and simplicity we perceive all of life as a mysterious ritual dance.

Pisces 19. A man tilling a field of flax. (Omega Symbol) manifesting/responsible

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

This degree emanates the energy of emotional healing, helping others to clear traumas and other heavy frequencies out of the astral body. It tends to do this with little conscious awareness of what it is doing, but the result is helping others to become more in touch with their inner self in a soft, gentle manner which brings renewal and reconnection with the light of spirit.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Palm trees laden with dates.” Here is immense sweetness and rich nourishment flourishing in the desert. This degree carries within itself a wondrous abundance that manifests in may different forms – intuitive insight, understanding, compassion, and the ability to uplift others being a few of them. All this degree needs to do is to distribute these gifts, to not repress them, or question their value, but simply to share what the spiritual light has provided.

Pleiadian Symbol: A teacher interrupting his brilliant pupil's piano playing.

Azoth Symbol: Little whirlpools of dust in the twilight.

Seed degree: Scorpio 18. Something waking for a moment in a cocoon. (Omega Symbol). Tuning in to the process of change at work in our lives, we are drawn increasingly to finding ways to cultivate and enhance it.

People holding hands around a table. One candle is burning in the middle of the table. (Chandra Symbol). Through communion with others in a light-filled manner, we discover all sorts of nourishment, gifts, and possibilities.

Fulfillment degree: Aries 30. A crown which causes one to levitate. (Omega Symbol). Pain, suffering, and darkness are gradually eliminated and eventually we are surprised at our own lightness.

An anatomist delivers a lecture on the kidneys. (Chandra Symbol). As we realize more and more the abundance at our disposal, we are able to clear our emotions and let go of fear.

Pisces 20. A truck stop specializing in Gnostic texts. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Inspired

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

A sense here of being complete out of touch with what is around oneself, but this being a very life supporting thing, for one is functioning as a portal to other realms. What this degree has to offer may often be overlooked or rejected by others, but tends to not elicit strong negative reactions because it is so otherworldly as to be incomprehensible. To those in need of what it has to offer there is wonderful refreshment and relief in knowing that this fabulous other universes exist and can be visited.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A perfect black cube sits alone in the desert.” This degree is dedicated to being itself without compromise, and doing this has most likely produced some degree of isolation from the rest of the world. The question is this: what is the value of such isolation? On the one hand, it can be a very effective way to maintain purity, and to encourage others to maintain their own integrity also. It can also evoke curiosity in others, which, as they pursue this individual who has so isolated himself can learn much about their own self. On the other hand, this isolation can be just a form of rigidity born out of fear, pride, haughtiness, etc.

The truck stop of the Omega Symbol together with the gnostic texts it's selling represents the clashing of two extremely different worlds. This may be unseemly, and jarring. It may amount to nothing – the gnostic texts may remain unsold and have to be returned to the publisher or thrown in the dumpster out back. But at least someone tried something radically different. Maybe even if this fails it might be better than blank perfection sitting alone in the desert. The fact is, as this degree evolves it will inevitably experiment with both paths.

Pleiadian Symbol: Under a tree a table laden with nuts, berries, and other natural and raw foods.

Azoth Symbol: Clouds taking on strange patterns that seem to mean something.

Seed degree: Scorpio 30. Former reflections appearing on a mirror. (Omega Symbol). The past intrudes into the present, creating curious and exciting clashes and juxtapositions.

A very dark sky, but no rain. (Chandra Symbol). Letting go of forebodings, expectancies and frustrations we accept the truth that amidst the seeming bleakness of the universe a perfect, karmic organizing principle is at work.

Fulfillment degree: Taurus 30.Beings from many dimensions attracted to an immense white flame. (Omega Symbol). A strange and unique juxtaposition of energies opens us up to commune with each other for the purpose of fulfilling a higher purpose.

Snakes at rest on a rock in the sun. (Chandra Symbol). Achieving a deep centering within ourselves by realizing our own completeness and adequacy, we are free to share with others of like mind and bask in the light of awareness.

(164) Omega/Chandra Symbol: Pisces 11 - 15

Phase 69. Lost and Found (Resh Aleph Hey)

Angel: ROCHEL (ro-SHEL) Restitution

Pisces 11. Three undines guarding a golden treasure at the bottom of a river (Omega Symbol). Transforming/Experimental

(Degree Angel: Nanael (NA-na-El) No Agenda, Spiritual Communication)

This degree focuses on issues of temptation and desire. It is continually asking itself why it wants what it wants, and hence is unsure of it's desires. This is the first manifestation of “Leo” energy in Pisces. The little ego, based on selfishness and the illusion of limitation, must be dissolved so that the greater ego may assert itself as a pure mirror reflecting the love and joy of the spiritual light into the physical realm.

The river is time. The place where the golden treasure lies is the present moment. The three undines are the self as reflecting all time – past, present, and future.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A high, crumbling wall. It is part of a ruin and covered with ivy.” The wall was probably a part of something lofty and grand – maybe a cathedral. Now it is a support for the ivy. Is this function less noble? Which role that the wall has played has created has enhanced the world most?

This degree is all about letting things be and then seeing what becomes of them. It realizes that many human agendas, although they style themselves noble and of great importance, are actually quite narrow and false – mere pretensions of the ego. It may be just as beautiful to see things fall apart as to strive to build them up. The outer cathedral, when eventually lost to the ravages of time, can encourage the exploration of the eternal inner cathedral. This is one of the golden treasures guarded by the undines, resting in eternity at the bottom of the river of time.

Pleiadian Symbol: Men seeking a fabled sage are traveling deep into the forest with lanterns.

Azoth Symbol: The Moon pulling on the liquids in the bodies of sleepers.

Seed degree: Leo 12.In the basement of a house, a secret escape tunnel. (Omega Symbol). As we seek passages through which to move forward, we are surprised by discovering unexpected riches along the way.

The mouth of the Amazon river. (Chandra Symbol). Our emotions merge with the sea of emotions we share with all other conscious beings, and in doing so we grow more and more to appreciate the beauty of what has passed away and what is vibrantly alive now.

Fulfillment degree: Leo 29. A tiny, poisonous frog with a brightly colored body. (Omega Symbol). It is through becoming one with the treasures of the moment that we can come to terms with the tiny, poisonous frog – who is our ego.

A broken sword. (Chandra Symbol). Using the lessons derived from what was as a support, we come to love and accept ourselves as we are, and also to transmute those parts of ourselves ready for change.

Pisces 12. A fantastic archaeological find is being kept secret. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Sensitive

(Degree Angel Name: Nithael (NIT-ha-EL) The Death of Death, Rejuvenation and Eternal Youth)

The past houses secrets which, if they could be known might have a transformative effect on the present. This degree is aware of how the self is always keeping secrets from itself – it is a technique the ego uses to try to maintain the structure it imposes on reality. There's a persistent desire here to allow all secrets to be revealed, and to open up the treasure house of the past, even at the risk of threatening the ego.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A woman asleep in a ring of flames.” One of the places in literature where this image is found is in the last part of “Die Valkure,” where the Valkerie Brunhilde
is placed in a ring of flames by the kind of the Gods, Wotan. She is to sleep there until a person with the requisite courage comes who has the power to rescue her. She, like the archaeological find of the Omega Symbol is, in a sense, being kept secret where she sleeps, high on a mountain.

On another level, this woman is the Shekinah, the Kabbalistic female spirit of one's own wisdom, each one of us being the hero who will eventually pass through the frightening flame barrier of our own ego to wake her and unite with her.

Through total rest, through deep sleep and merging with pure being an alchemy is allowed to work and to draw to itself whatever will awaken it to a new world.

This degree may experience an intense yearning, but not be able to define what it is that it yearns for. It carries within itself a secret which, in lower stages of development, it may not even be aware of. The secret is the knowledge that the perfection one seeks is there, waiting, within, and will inevitably be discovered. This is the source of the mysterious patience and hope this degree brings to whatever it contacts.

The archaeological find of the Omega Symbol is actually your true self, which in fact you never lost, but which, until enlightenment, you're keeping secret from yourself.

Pleiadian Symbol: A professor of symbology explaining a ritual.

Azoth Symbol: A horn used to convey messages over long distances.

Seed degree: Leo 24. A drowning man turns into a fish. (Omega Symbol). That such a magical thing can happen is kept secret by the narrowness of our mind, only revealed when the mind is ready to let go of its limits.

Sunrise over Stonehenge. (Chandra Symbol). Becoming conscious of the beautifully balanced cosmic patterns in which we live, we perveive the the inner goddess latent within ourselves and yearn for her awakening.

Fulfillment degree: Virgo 29. Pagans purifying themselves beneath a waterfall. (Omega Symbol). Letting go of searching out secrets, we give our curiosity a rest and allow the cleansing forces of nature to renew our spirit.

A witch preparing magic mushrooms. (Chandra Symbol). Drawing on the spirit of the inner goddess sleeping within us, we work with the forces of nature to create healing.

Pisces 13. A castle so vast no one has ever explored all of it. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Receptive

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

This degree deals with issues of where to focus and how much to take in. It is aware that all limitations are ultimately illusions, and that whenever needed any situation may be opened up to allow in the cosmic perspective that is always seeking entry. When one is ready to explore further, the doors to “further” appear and open.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A woman imprisoned in a high tower.” This image seems to be the exact opposite of the Omega Symbol – the woman confined in such a small space compared to the unimaginably vast castle. As you may recall, the Omega Symbol carries a 4th house vibration, and therefore signfies the nature of the degree AT ROOT, whereas the Chandra Symbol is how it relates to the world around it – a 7th house vibration. And so here we find something that is at root vast but which relates to the world outwardly as a kind of prison. The message here is that the self is, at root limitless – the limitations we seem to find ourselves bound by are actually of our own creation.

And those limitations are not necessarily to be done away with – they are for a purpose – to help us have a focus in life. This degree senses the vastness of itself but knows also that it must find a focus, which means a confinement, and this confinement is in a tower, meaning it is seeking higher realities. The more these higher realities are assimilated, the more the self can explore its vast reaches without get lost or disoriented.

Pleiadian Symbol: On the anniversary of a famous battle a legendary sword is glowing.

Azoth Symbol: Drinking an elixir of dandelions a man feels deep tensions within him relaxing and dissolving.

Seed degree: Virgo 6.Talismans buried here and there along a road so that travelers will be protected. (Omega Symbol). Someone has gone down these paths and corridors before us. Attuning to their creative spirit and love we find the courage to explore further.

A banyan tree that creates an entire forest. (Chandra Symbol). Overwhelmed by the single tree that is a forest, we use the tower as a way of getting above it so that we may better perceive its wholeness.

Fulfillment degree: Libra 29.In a spiritual text, a man searches for hidden codes. (Omega Symbol). Continuing to explore ourselves further and further, we come to realize that we are not just what we thought ourselves to be, but a foreign country as well where we may find treasures galore.

Servants giving a woman a bath. (Chandra Symbol). Realizing our own estrangement from the world helps us to see the need for both giving and receiving support in the process of renewing spiritual energy.

Pisces 14. Unconcerned with how he is going to escape, a man explores an infinite library. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Responsible

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

This degree knows that there is no end to knowledge – no end to what can be learned from any event or situation. The universe is holographic – its completeness is found in even the smallest part of it. And so there is no need for closure, but only a continual taking in and assimilating of the wisdom that each experience offers.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “After a feast, much uneaten food remains on the plates.” These two symbols, like the two of 13 Pisces, are also opposites. The man of the Omega Symbol is a glutton for knowledge – so much so that he would risk his life to gain a little more. On the other hand, the guests of the Chandra Symbol who have engaged in the feast have been sensitive to when they have consumed enough, and have left uneaten food on the plates.

This degree is aware of its own appetites and what goads them. The desires of this degree are highly generalized – it wants everything, but nothing in particular tends to stand out more than any other thing. The real appetite here is the craving for life and experience, a craving to become one with the world and to take in life deeply. And this is the key: it is not the quantity consumed, but the degree to which it is assimilated. When this degree allows itself to do anything completely, when it surrenders to complete merging with whatever it takes in, then it can feel that wonderful sense of satiation on all levels.

Pleiadian Symbol: A medicine woman wearing the talismans of her totem animals.

Azoth Symbol: Deep in a cave a young boy discovers a fire elemental.

Seed degree: Virgo 18. A woman playing the didgeridoo. (Omega Symbol). Attuning to the breath of life, a whole realm of knowledge opens up.

Glasses which cause one to see rainbows. (Chandra Symbol). Perception of the subtler levels of reality invites one to a feast of fulfillment.

Fulfillment degree: Scorpio 29. Through a doorway, nothing but empty, blue sky in all directions. (Omega Symbol). Embracing the vastness of knowledge eventually leads to the realization of utter freedom.

Pisces 15: On a high hill above a river, the ruins of a castle. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Inspired

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

This degree is a resister of the compulsions and agendas of others people and the world. It has the ability to remove itself from the ongoing flow of time so that it may seek out rare and unusual experiences, and explore that which has been left behind or abandoned. It is the soul archaeologist, studying the remains of memory to unearth and retrieve precious treasures.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Many kinds of fruits arrayed on a silver tray.” Here again we find the sharp contrast between Omega and Chandra Symbol which we found in both the 13th and 14th degrees of Pisces. The fruits are juicy – a very pure, high vibration food. They are on a gleaming silver tray, silver being the metal of the moon, which signifies nurturing and the abundance of nature. On the other hand the castle of the Omega Symbol is old and dead and gone and left behind as the river flows onward. And yet the vision of it there high on the hill is food for the soul and the imagination.

This degree has a sense of the glorious richness of life and the need to be sensitive to the whole spectrum of one's own personal cravings, for they will tell the self what kinds of foods and experiences are needed as personal nourishment.

Pleiadian Symbol: A ballet master choreographing a complex ensemble.

Azoth Symbol: A bright polished sword is maintained untouched and unused.

Seed degree: Virgo 30.A man catching a ripe fruit as it falls off a tree. (Omega Symbol). The gift of the present moment tunes us in to the deeper meanings of the past.

Supersensible beings appearing as geometric forms. (Chandra Symbol). The denizens of other planes of reality communicate to us through harmonious designs which then take on the form of whatever we need for our own sustenance.

Fulfillment degree: Sagittarius 29. A house full of strange, disorienting angles and perspectives. (Omega Symbol). The past calls to us, and causes us to see the present in new, unexpected ways.

The ritual slaughtering of a lamb. (Chandra Symbol). Realizing the abundance the universe offers to us, we're impelled to give back to life by sharing what we have. pure mirror reflecting the love and joy of the spiritual light into the physical realm.

Phase 68. Contacting Departed Souls (Chet Bet Vav)

Angel: HABUHIAH (he-BU-hee-YAH) Healing

Pisces 6 Crystals deep in the earth aware of the sunshine above. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Experimental

(Degree Angel: Mihael (MIH-a-EL) Unity, Fertility, Fruitfulness)

Even when one cannot be in direct contact with the spiritual light, just to think of it evokes it, and attunes us to it even if we are aware of it or not. This degree has a tremendous sense of hope that it naturally communicates to others simply through the strength of its faith. It has an acute sense of the separation that exists between spirit and matter, but deeper than this a knowing that that separation is an illusion.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “An Inca chief wearing many emeralds.” Emerald is the traditional Vedic gemstone for the planet Mercury. In this degree we find an abundant power to communicate, which most usually operates at subliminal levels, meaning that the person triggers valuable and important thoughts in others, and functions as a go between between the forces of nature and other people. There's a richness of connectedness here with a wonderful array of many different thoughts, ideas, and ways of looking at life. This person carries a soothing aura, one that invites relationship and connection and which supports the healing of all schisms in the patterns of connectedness.

Pleiadian Symbol: The emperor's retinue appears in elaborate gold regalia.

Azoth Symbol: A wizard touches a crystal ball to his forehead, attuning it to his third eye.

Seed degree: Gemini 12. A single tree growing many different types of fruits. (Omega Symbol). To realize that knowledge and sustenance can manifest in so many different forms increases one's ability to find light in the midst of darkness.

Many huge urns filled with wheat. (Chandra Symbol). The connectedness which the self has to offer life is actually a spiritual food that can nourish all with whom we share.

Fulfillment degree: Pisces 28. A shy poet in hiding. (Omega Symbol). Protected from the outer light, we go deep into ourselves to create beauty out of the inner light.

A hoard of monkeys chattering. (Chandra Symbol). Eternal ideas find expression through a vast array of different vehicles. Keep faithfully tuned in to these eternal truths, we become impervious to the confusions and chaotic machinations of the mind's nervous energy.

Pisces 7. An open-air library, the books magically impervious to the elements. (Omega Symbol) interacting/sensitive

(Degree Angel: Vehuel (Vay-hoo-EL) Happiness, Elevation, Grandeur)

This degree feels an inner spiritual certainty that cannot be shaken, broken, or worn away. It never forgets the truth it knows, and knows that anything one truly has can ever be taken away. It feels in its heart that knowledge is not something that is every really lost, but something that eternally is – beyond time. The light of truth impervious to all shadow and darkness its its reality.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A candle burning. There is a ring of salt around it on the floor.” The candle, like the library of the Omega Symbol, is protected, in this case from discord and any dimming of its light. This degree is extreme in its ability to hold on to a focus and/or a sense of purpose, and to ward off anything that might attempt to disturb, frustrate or negate that purpose. It deeply understands that truth is ultimately incapable of corruption, and that even though its manifestations may change, truth itself is a light to be tuned in to and rekindled with each new beholding of it.

Such a steady symbol may seem strange for a degree which is Kabbalistically ruled by Gemini – a very flexible, wavering sign. The message is, that to communicate (Gemini) the faith of Pisces requires this clarity of focus and dedication to the light.

Pleiadian Symbol: Fragments of an antique colossus lying on a beach.

Azoth Symbol: A space alien implants a microchip in a sleeping man's leg.

Seed degree: Gemini 24. A man who heals water, be it in lakes, rivers, the ocean, or a glass. (Omega Symbol). As water is receptive to any and all vibrations, it is realized as nature's original library.

Fulfillment degree: Aries 29. A woman immersed in healing mud. (Omega Symbol). To try out and experiment with knowledge gained from the library of eternal truths, we are compelled to immerse ourselves in the great testing ground of the physical plane.

Dr. Jekyll drinks the potion. (Chandra Symbol). Steadily focused on the light, we then find in ourselves the power to investigate our own inner darkness.

Pisces 8. Through a microscope, a scientist observes a deadly virus. (Omega Symbol) interacting/receptive

(Degree Angel: Daniel (DA-nee-EL) Enough is Never Enough, Eloquence)

This degree knows that when we can really see negativity clearly, see into the inner workings of our own illusions, we are on the road to clearing them. It is willing to have and intimate contact with all kinds of discord, and through going into the deepest subtlest layers of the structure of these things moves progressively toward a complete healing of them.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A gypsy peasant woman sings a mournful chant.” To give voice to all the sorrow and suffering of our soul is to begin the process of releasing it. This degree feels there is energy trapped in the self which needs to come out, energy of a toxic sort which can be alleviated through expressing it. It is because we do not deeply and completely embrace our pain that it stays with us. On the other hand, if we embrace it without letting go of it, we will continue to retain it. The magic is in the full embrace, the full realization of the nature of our feeling that finally allows us to accept it and relax out of it. And as we allow ourselves to empathize with others expressing their pain, ours can be released simultaneously with theirs. Knowing that others deeply and intuitively understand what we are feeling is a way of healing unto itself.

Pleiadian Symbol: A monk blowing a conch shell.

Azoth Symbol: Materials and workers assembled, a pause before beginning the great task.

Seed degree: Cancer 6. On a dull, overcast day, a pool reflects a clear, blue sky. (Omega Symbol). Just as the pool sees the blue sky beyond the clouds, the scientist comes to see the spiritual purpose behind the deadly virus.

The Medusa's head with writhing snakes for hair. (Chandra Symbol). When we come to deal with what we couldn't formerly look at, we are ready to engage in the process of release.

Fulfillment degree: Taurus 29. A man reaches out to touch a marble statue. He feels it smiling. (Omega Symbol). In an attempt to comprehend the various manifestations of pain and suffering, we realize more and more that the world we have created is there to actually lead us eventually into perfect bliss.

A man amuses himself by drawing strange shapes. (Chandra Symbol). Releasing the past and its sorrows impels us to create new sources of pleasure and delight.

Pisces 9. A ghost peacefully coexisting with a family in a house. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Responsible

(Degree Angel: Hahasiah (he-HA-see-Yah) No Guilt, Universal Medicine)

A lack of judgement is here, and an acceptance of the needs of others, no matter what they may be. Also included is a lack of fear of what is unknown based on the belief that the universe is an inherently safe place. Where one might expect discord or conflict this degree knows that being deeply accepting can create an environment of harmony and peace in which all life can partake.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Dusk. A vampire awakens.” Until we can awaken those areas of ourselves that need healing we exist in a state of suspension. This degree senses how to turn the consciousness away from the outer, objective world, and allow the unredeemed energies of the subconscious to come forth. It is acutely sensitive to desires, and able to contact them without judgment, rationalization, fear, or anything else that might distort them and make them seem other than what they are. The fact is, that what we run away from we give power to, whereas what we are willing to completely own and accept eventually loses its negative charge and becomes integrated into our being.

When the ghost of the Omega Symbol is ready to move on, it will.

Pleiadian Symbol: A pale naked man on a horse journeying through the forest.

Azoth Symbol: A man covered with all sorts of ornaments.

Fulfillment degree: Gemini 29. A biologist doing intensive research on mold. (Omega Symbol). When we learn to co-exist with our own past in an unattached manner we come into a deeper and deeper understanding of the forces of change and decay as necessary elements in our personal evolution.

A garden planted solely with shade plants. (Chandra Symbol). As we see what it is within us that is resisting the light, we are able to allow in gradually more and more light, which balances and moderates our growth.

Pisces 10. A group of people practicing levitation. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Inspired

(Degree Angel: Imamiah (ee-MA-mee-Yah) Passion, Expiation of Errors)

Here is the knowledge that our belief system creates an environment that influences others, and that when we liberate our beliefs from limitations it can stimulate the manifestation of creative powers in both ourselves and others. What makes it more possible to rise above the heaviness of the physical realm is to connect with others with whom we can share mutual support in the process of growing lighter.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “An old witch on a windy promontory. She is calling to the sea.” Many people tend to think the forces of nature are impersonal, but in fact, they are directly aware of each individual. They are a part of us, and we of them, and only seem as strangers to us when we make ourselves strangers to ourselves by denying what is within. This degree is about communing with nature, not in a quiet, soft way, but directly and we might almost say, confrontatively.

Pleiadian Symbol: A man soaring through the clouds on a glider.

Azoth Symbol: As a man sleeps, an eye in his forehead opens.

(162) Omega/Chandra Symbols: Pisces 1 - 5

Phase 67. Great Expectations (Aleph Yud Ayin)

Angel: Eyael(AY-ya-EL) Transformation to the Sublime
Pisces 1. At sunset, a petrified forest glows with iridescence. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Experimental

(Degree Angel: Veuliah (vay-OO-lee-AH) Defying Gravity, Prosperity)

This degree is aware of the multifarious forms through which knowledge manifests. It deeply senses the eternal realities that hide in passing forms. What is most difficult for it is to focus on any one thing, for in its world energies flow together and can seem to it so formless as to be inexpressible. The way out of this frustration is to embrace the all and move with the passing shimmerings of each moment.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A field of dandelions.” This degree has a joyful appreciation of the common and ordinary, and an understanding that all aspects of the human species shared reality have come to be due to having survived and outlived so many other ideas and ways of being that have been cast aside or minimized over time. In other words, there is an instinct for comprehending how the
mainstream of society represents the strongest and most persistent motivations of the race. To try to find and support what is most positive and spiritual in this is the goal of this degree. It is the Piscean sympathy shining forth most directly, spontaneously, and universally, like the sunshine of countless stars in a galaxy of dandelions.

Pleiadian Symbol: Hundreds of merchants of all sorts of exotic items in a crowded bazaar.

Azoth Symbol: Gifts falling from heaven, some being caught in grateful hands, others disappearing just before they hit the ground.

A single white swan swimming through gray mist. (Chandra Symbol). Attuned to our inherent power and joy we come into a poise that carries us through all uncertainties.

Pisces 2. From deep in the earth, the sound of a waterfall (Omega Symbol). Manifesting/Sensitive

(Degree Angel: Yelahiah (yay-LAH-hee-YAH) Sweetening Judgment, Karmic Warrior)

In all life situations this degrees senses a greater reality and hidden energies that are influencing the here and now. It has a strong and persistent knowing that what we are all doing here in the realm of physicality is of extreme importance, and is a key to spiritual fulfillment. Its highest calling is its role as a patient learner who listens to the world around it and hears the voices of spirit calling.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A man turning into a werewolf.” Through giving in to one's animal instincts one can most easily come to understand and guide them. Here is a need to take an often extreme and periodic break from the rigors of being encased in a social framework, a need to throw off all repression and dive into one's deepest desires. This, in and of it self is healthy, as long as the person doesn't fall prey to thinking that these primal energies are victimizers dominating the self and which cannot be resisted, or chanelled into life giving and spiritual actions. At worst there may be a secret love, here, of being out of control, but when this is admitted, the inner wolf may be befriended and trained without breaking its spirit.

Pleiadian Symbol: A mole sleeping cozily in its burrow.

Azoth Symbol: At a dinner people enjoying what their garden has produced.

Seed degree: Aries 24. Beautiful, expressive lines flowing out of a pencil. (Omega Symbol). Letting inspiration flow forth we begin to hear the deeper surgings of our inner world.

A harp which plays itself. (Chandra Symbol). Giving expression to what is within, we make contact with our animal nature.

Fulfillment degree: Scorpio 28.A man who speaks only in meter and rhyme. (Omega Symbol). Attuning to the liquid nature of our energies, we allow them to express as pure flow.

A building: the only part of it left is the cornerstone. (Chandra Symbol). Realizing our animal nature enables us to see the simple foundations of everything around us.

Pisces 3. Just before a wedding, a purifying rainstorm. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Receptive

(Degree Angel: Sehaliah (say-HA-lee-YAH) The Power of Prosperity, Motivation and Willfulness)

This degree knows that if it is going to enter into connections with other people and the world around it it needs to let go of all fear, all assumptions, and all beliefs in limitation. This is a tremendous thing to ask of itself, and even though it may not be able to carry out this agenda all at once there is a continual cleansing here as a prelude to engaging in relationships in the clearest way possible.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “An eye gazing out of the top of a pyramid.” This degree is always seeing things in terms of their highest spiritual aspect, and even when in the thick of suffering, drama and illusion there is always this overtone of crystalline clarity. It is simply a manner of learning to focus on this which will, over time gradually elevate and strengthen the spirit more and more.

Pleiadian Symbol: Hundreds of fallen columns in a lost city.

Azoth Symbol: A man with wings like a dragonfly.

Seed degree: Taurus 6. A man charges water with healing energy. (Omega Symbol). The healing water is dispersed everywhere and blesses all of our relating.

A witch's ritual dagger. (Chandra Symbol). Higher vision is the basis for effectively cutting through all layers of discord and illusion.

Pisces 4. Rustic folk gather many types of wildflowers for a celebration. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Responsible

(Degree Angel: Ariel (AH-ree-EL) Absolute Certainty, Perceiver and Revealer)

This degree has in its nature a fullness and completeness that invites everything into anything which it does. The result is a great blending of the energies of nature that manifests as a lushness of expression, and everything done and entered into with a feeling of great abundance of possibility and opportunity. It is a potent antidote against the belief in poverty and lack.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Mushrooms springing up everywhere.” In the right environment certain life forms find exactly what they need to grow. This degree knows that so many problems can be solved simply by seeking out the exact type of environment they need. This principle is a clear explanation of how so much negativity has come to be accumulated on planet earth – these negative forces have been carefully and systematically cultivated. And so positive, spiritual forces may be cultivated in the same way.

This degree often feels the urge to make changes or modifications in various aspects of its reality, and should follow these, rather than allowing too many questions to cause doubt and hesitancy. There is here an ability to read needs, even ones of the most subjective sort, needs of an outer, obvious nature as well as subtle, vibrational needs.

It tends to approach everything indirectly, being, in a sense, more concerned with the atmosphere around a thing rather than the thing itself. The results of this can be immensely fruitful.

Pleiadian Symbol: At land's end a woman regretfully turns back.

Azoth Symbol: Wonderful paintings discovered in a junk store.

Seed degree: Taurus 18. Gently a man caresses a thorn tree. (Omega Symbol). Honoring the needs and sensitivities of nature, we are then able to harmoniously draw on it to intensify our own joy.

A woman with hundreds of breasts. (Chandra Symbol). Realizing the tremendous nurturing capacity of nature brings forth in us a spontaneous creativity.

Fulfillment degree: Capricorn 28.A roomful of people busily cutting diamonds. (Omega Symbol). The ephemeral celebration involving the colors of the wildflowers reflects the diamonds' eternal celebration of color. The work of play becomes the play of work.

A mirror covered with a fine film of dust. (Chandra Symbol). A cycle of proliferation must always be followed by a process of clearing and refreshing, to make ready for the next cycle. Fecundity increases the awareness of entropy.

Pisces 5. Dyers at work with many vats of different colors. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Inspired

(Degree Angel: Asaliah (a-SA-lee-YAH) Global Transformation, Contemplation)

This degree likes to work with a wide spectrum of vibrations. It is very imaginative, and wants to bring its inner visions down into physical reality. It is looking to make the world a \brighter place and to transmute all negative emotions into their spiritual counterparts, fear becoming faith, anger love, and sadness joy. It seeks to remove the veil of drabness from everyday life to allow the wonder of nature to shine forth.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Thousands of gold nuggets glistening at the bottom of a clear stream.” When you allow emotions to flow forth and be whatever they want to be, letting to of any attachment to them, but without repressing them, they can wash away confusion and disillusion and leave behind the realization of what is truly important and of value. This degree is about allowing cleansing processes to happen. It is also about allowing meaning to emerge from life by joyously going one's own way spontaneously until all becomes clear.

Pleiadian Symbol: The feeding of the poor at a soup kitchen.

Azoth Symbol: A bridge that has been difficult to build is in its final stages of completion.

Seed degree: Taurus 30. Beings from many dimensions attracted to an immense white flame. (Omega Symbol). Renewing our connection to spirit we return to the world replete with the possibilities of creative potential.

Fulfillment degree: Aquarius 28. The entrance to a vast complex of caves beneath a mountain range. (Omega Symbol). Exploring the depths of the material plane we discover a whole rainbow of energies with which to color our world.

A tapestry loom On it is a half finished tapestry. (Chandra Symbol). Realizing how open to creative possibility our world is, we find a whole array of meaning and beauty in all the various directions we might proceed.

Aquarius 26. The sound of the ocean kept in a small box. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Experimental

(Degee Angel: Haamiah (He-AH-mee-YAH) Circuitry, Ritual and ceremony)

In the smallest and seemingly most unimportant of situations there are cosmic elements at work, And even though many feelings may seem shallow or bland, there are hidden depths to everything that is felt. This degree is aware of that and has the ability to enter the depths of both its own and others' subconscious, to help get in touch with what needs to be contacted.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Dragonflies around a stagnant pool” The contrast here is between what is heavy and rotting versus what is light and airy. The buoyant and delicate aspect of this degree's nature is able to transcend those places where obstructed energy has created a quagmire. It accepts fermentation and spoilage as a natural process that has its place in the scheme of things, and in the midst of such darkness can maintain a detached and observing mode. It knows that we become what we identify with.

(Degree Angel: Rehael (RAY-ha-EL) Diamond in the Rough, Filial Submission)

Our connections with ourselves and our reality are going through continual subtle adjustments, and this degree is acutely aware of all kinds of disharmonies that arise. It is also aware that the most effective way to realign these disharmonies is through turning one's attention to feeling the love that is always there. And though it may not realize it's doing this, this is the magic way it brings harmony to many different situations.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A man laying stones for a path” This degree may take great pains to do something, because it knows that once certain tasks are completed, the foundation is laid for greater ease and smoothness of functioning in the future.

It shows the way, even though the way may be difficult. It is intent on exploring new areas of life and of helping others to experience ideas and places that may have hitherto been hidden or in some other ways difficult of access. The building of these paths, is, as expressed in the corresponding Omega Symbol, an act of love that strengthens the heart of both the giver and the receiver.

Aquarius 28. The entrance to a vast complex of caves beneath a mountain range. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Receptive

(Degree Angel: Yeiazel (YAY-ah-ZEL) Speaking the Right Words, Divine Consolation and Comfort)

This degree is intent on exploring the inner workings of life – to learn what is underneath things. It questions the purpose and validity of goals, and realizes that beneath all striving and desire are other, deeper motives which the person being influenced by them may not even be aware. It seeks out the least obvious aspects of experience, for the purpose of reaching a wholistic picture by searching for the missing or abandoned pieces.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A tapestry loom. On it is a half finished tapestry.” This degree is aware of how everything is open and subject to change. Even those things which we think are done may be modified, or completely transformed. This is a highly imaginative degree and is at its most powerful when allowed to continually envision alternate ways of doing anything, rather than being pinned down and limited to one way. It realizes how stifling the following of methods and systems can be, and is always able and willing to share insights that open up everything to new possibilities.

It's all about realizing that no agendas are necessarily the right ones, or set in stone. Some wish to scale the mountain's heights – some which to delve deeply under them.

Aquarius 29. An old poetess eating green melon in a shady garden. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Responsible

(Degree Angel: Hahahel (HA-ha-HEL) Self-Esteem, Mission)

The old poetess is the wise woman who through the magic of her poems expresses the mysteries of the universe. In the gentle, protected sanctuary of the shaded garden she renews her inspiration through taking into her being the ripeness and fullness of nature. This degree is about attuning to the ancient feminine wisdom within and allowing it to find the intimate connection with the elemental kingdoms that nourish it.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “The sound of water echoes through a great stone room.” Present here is an amplified sensitivity to the flow of emotion and the ability to perceive all the subtleties and complexities of feeling moving through both self and others. The stone room provides a sanctum which shuts out the outer world so that one's listening to the voices of the water may become focused and acute.

In the Omega Symbol the color green, the shadows, and the melon are all soothing nourishing, and refreshing elements, as is the sound of the water in the Chandra Symbol. In both symbols sensitivity is amplified so that we may appreciate the many beautiful subtleties of our world and be enriched and refreshed by them.

Aquarius 30. For many years, on an island, people dig deeper and deeper to find a treasure. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Inspired

(Degree Angel: Mikael (MI-ka-EL) Revealing the Concealed, Political Authority and Order)

This degree knows that the treasure of enlightenment will be found, and when knowledge is certain then faith is strong and so one finds the energy to keep going in pursuit of the ultimate fulfillment of all desire. This degree has the power to keep others focused and on track in the pursuit of any goal, and fosters hope and a continual regeneration of motivation among its fellow travelers.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A large pool filled with white water lilies in bloom.” The danger of the preceding Omega Symbol is that it could be productive of immense frustration. The corresponding Chandra Symbols seems anything but frustrating, seems, in fact healing, refreshing and relaxing. Even though this degree will go to almost any lengths to find what it is looking for, it always senses the ever-present truth that fulfillment is simple, and is a state of being that has always been there. And therein lies the mystery: how do you attain to that which you already are?

This degree has a beauty to share with others that is enlivening and wondrous, though often not consciously appreciated or apprehended. Nevertheless its effects are communicated like a perfume so subtle as to be nearly undetectable.

Aquarius 21. A numerologist at work on a tropical island. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Experimental

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

This degree has a great desire to understand the workings of the universe. At its best it is able to relate universal principles to the flow of life around it, and to see those principles at play in all the processes of nature. At its highest this becomes a deep and dynamic understanding of life that can be shared with others. It needs to beware, though, of isolating itself by focusing too intently on the life of the mind, to the neglect of the connecting with the real and tangible transmutations going on around it in the here and now.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A beautiful woman dressed in white. She is wearing a large silver crescent on her head. The crescent is pointing upward.” This degree is capable of great receptivity to the messages coming in from its higher self. It is often through no longer being able to tolerate the disappointments and disillusions of life that we look beyond the material world around us and seek alignment with a higher, subtler energy. This degree always feels that urge underlying everything, and is always willing to encourage others to also attune to spiritual truth. The phenomenal world is lush and chaotic, like the tropical island of the Omega Symbol, but within it there is always that part of ourselves which strives to tune in to the order, design, and harmony of it all.

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

The power of this degree is its understanding of how limitations can be changed gradually. To effect this change requires an understanding of the nature of those limitations and an intuitive sense of how to approach them, where their weaknesses are, and how to dialog with any system. Here is the master negotiator who respects the integrity of whatever they are working with, and who can achieve far-reaching results by acknowledging what is and and then working with it.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A woman making lace.” Here we find patience as well as the ability to concentrate and to perceive the overall patterns of whatever we are dealing with.

Aquarius 23. In a catacomb, a room decorated with hundreds of skulls and bones. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Receptive
(Degree Angel: Chavakiah (cha-VA-kee-Yah) Sexual Energy, Reconciliation)

This degree is about remembering the past and drawing sustenance from feeling fellowship with all those souls who have gone before and who have worked together to fulfill a goal. This degree gains sustenance from a feeling of connectedness with humanity that transcends any limitation imposed by religion, ethnicity, race philosophical persuasion – or even death. Love is the true connector.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Ancient runes carved at random on gray rocks.” The questions are, what do these runes mean, do they relate to each other, and if so, how? This degree senses the vastness of the group it belongs to, which includes the current human focus of everyone who has ever lived, as well as infinite other possibilities from far distant places, including other universes. It has a deep knowing that all limits are temporary and illusions. It often tries out many different ways of relating to the world, and welcomes the seemingly random encounters it has as opportunities to connect with the greater collective consciousness. Rather than feeling special in an exclusive, it knows that everything and everyone is special.

Pleiadian Symbol: A gorilla conversing in sign language.

Aquarius 24. A helicopter depositing a man on the top of the Great Pyramid. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Responsible

(Degree Angel: Menadel (Meh-na-DEL) Fear(less), Inner/outer work)

What is difficult becomes easy with help, and this degree is open to help from any and all sources. It knows that the access to anything can be immediate if the support is there, combined with confidence in the belief of this fact. Here is a desire to facilitate the process of everyone's unfoldment and therefore an antidote to destructive competitiveness.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A large brown bear picking and eating apples.” Here is a refreshingly direct gratification of self, which is both innocent and healthy. It may, though, be unacceptible to those who want a more formal, civilized approach to life, and who expect this large brown bear to justify its actions. This degree teaches us that everything can be made much easier and simpler than we've thought, though to do so there may be a price to pay in terms of intimidating others or going against what they think proper.

Pleiadian Symbol: As he is writing his memoirs a man recalls a long-ago love affair.

(Degree Angel: Aniel (AH-nee-EL) The Big Picture, Breaking the Circle)

Everywhere we look in life we are seeing through shadows of the past. This degree is strongly aware of this, and is looking to disperse those shadows so that we might see clearly what is here and how, disencumbered of the distortions of memory. This degree has a way of making needed connections to advance the process of understanding what is going on, and a gift for seeing where energy needs to be focused to achieve maximum benefit for all.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A moustache.” This is one of the simplest of all the symbols, and signifies male maturity. All healthy males eventually come into this maturity physically speaking, but as a symbol, what the moustache alludes to is spiritual maturity, that is, the ability to take spiritual initiative in the world and to wield spiritual power. The worst characteristics of the male are selfishness (in terms of the desire for sexual gratification, among other things), and the obsessive need to dominate, with its sub-need to be right. When this degree comes into alignment with its true nature, it is careful to reign in selfishness, as well as to know when dominating is the best thing and when softness and giving way to others is what's more needed. When these challenges are mastered, then the most cosmic aspects of Aquarius are allowed to manifest.

Pleiadian Symbol: A butterfly, the two halves of it having completely different patterns and colors.
