Phase 63. Appreciation (Ayin Nun Vav)
Angel: ANAUEL (a-NA-oo-EL) Perception of Unity
Aquarius 11. A man clearing out his own aura. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Experimental
(Degree Angel: MELAHEL (MAY-la-HEL) Sharing the Flame, Healing Capacity)
The truth at work here is, if you take care of the generalities, the specifics will fall into place. This degree knows that problems always need a medium in which to grow, and that medium is the joyless self, the fearful self, and the self drained of energy. So lets bring in more joy, more contact with our spirit and more light for the betterment of us all.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Crows eating the corn that a farmer has sown.” If you turn conflict of interests into power struggles complete with victimizer and victim you will never be happy. This degree is aware of forces which thwart its efforts, and is learning to find ways of overcoming this obstacle through negotiation and being sensitive to the needs of others, so that all can thrive and work together. When we learn how to support ourselves inwardly by focusing on the spiritual light – which is always loving and giving – we naturally draw to ourselves outer forces that mirror that light and hence are willing to take care of and support us.
Pleiadian Symbol: A poet sleeping in the midst of his poems which are scattered everywhere around him.
Azoth Symbol: At sunset a shepherd watches his peaceful flock.
Seed degree: Leo 11. A man using both hands is writing several stories simultaneously. (Omega Symbol). Such a build up of so many different energies makes us aware of the need to clear our aura and reboot our energy system.
A boy removing a thorn from his foot. (Chandra Symbol). The healing of one's understanding allows one to attune to the forces of nature.
Fulfillment degree: Aquarius 26.The sound of the ocean kept in a small box. (Omega Symbol). Clearing our aura we are then calm and focused enough to sense the inner sea.
Dragonflies around a stagnant pool. (Chandra Symbol). Detaching from what has hurt us, we may then lightly hover above it to observe and understand.
Aquarius 12. A man struck by lightning is miraculously unharmed. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Sensitive
(Degree Angel: HAHEUIAH (ha-HOO-ee-YAH) Overcoming Jealousy, Protection)
This degree can manifest a lightness of attitude that protects it from almost anything. It has an innate understanding that it is one's own karma which is dangerous, and not anything outside the self. And so karma may become a protection when one is truly working to clear negativity, for life will always support that process, no matter what the outer circumstances.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A heated argument turns into laughter.” It is a wonderful thing to be serious and passionate about life, but not good when, through our attachment we turn what is important to us into a burden. This degree is about knowing and focusing on what is important to us, while learning to carry it lightly. When we attune to the greater spiritual reality from which our consciousness has arisen, we inevitably come to know the joy of pure being.
Pleiadian Symbol: An escalator carrying people far into the sky.
Azoth Symbol: A man learning several different ways of meditating.
Seed degree: Leo 23. A secret race of beings carrying on a hidden existence among humans. (Omega Symbol). Tapping into that which is hidden we become suddenly and surprisingly inspired.

Fulfillment degree: Pisces 26. A castle so vast no one has ever explored all of it. (Omega Symbol). Realizing that we live in a safe universe we then find the freedom to explore the vastness of the universe of ourselves.
The aurora borealis. (Chandra Symbol). When the laughter dies away we are left with an afterglow of cosmic color.
Aquarius 13. An artist mixes various flower and gem elixirs into her paints. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Receptive
(Degree Angel: NITH-HAIAH (NIT-ha-YAH) Speak Your Mind, Spiritual Wisdom and Magic)
No matter what one experiences in life, there is always another level of influence happening, a subtler and finer level of energies at work. This degree knows this, and understands the need to acknowledge and creatively work with that level, as a means of making more positive anything that ones does. Nature is always ready to provide the materials to make life more wonderful for us all.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A lidless granite sarcophagus. It is empty.” This degree has a profound ability to completely let go of the past and to approach the future with no expectations. If, on the other hand it allow fear to take over, it can feel caught between a past it cannot go back to and a future it feels it can't enter because it has no map to it. The Symbol has an empty hollow quality, which melts away when one realizes the freedom and openness it also carries. This degree can look at life in completely new ways – just as the energies of gems and flowers in the Omega Symbol allows the artist to paint paintings that show the world in new ways.
Pleiadian Symbol: The air suddenly turns cool as winds rise.
Azoth Symbol: In the spiritual realm a temple where many souls come to commune with each other.
Seed degree: Virgo 5.With a loud explosion, a tiny black hole collides with earth. (Omega Symbol). Realizing that tiny things can have an immense impact one is inspired to work with subtleties and the hidden aspects of nature.

Fulfillment degree: Aries 27.Over a waterfall gleams a rainbow many thousands of years old. (Omega Symbol). Allowing beauty and wonder to shine forth in everything we do we fuse with the ever-renewed and ever-eternal light.
A fun house. (Chandra Symbol). Leaving behind thoughts of death and confinement we explore life as an experience of continual joy and surprise.
Aquarius 14. During the rain, a bird is heard singing. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Responsible
(Degree Angel: HAAIAH (HA-ee-YAH) Order From Chaos, Political Science and Ambition)
This degree has the ability to maintain a cheerfulness and joy no matter what the outer circumstances of life may be. It sees the potential good in everything, and in times of darkness and uncertainty can uplift the spirits of others. It has a direct connection to the life force and a deep sensing that all is ultimately for the purpose of furthering evolution and fostering the good.
The Chandra symbol for this degree is “In a pyramid a dark passageway filled with scorpions.” We could become afraid to progress at all, for fear we will make a misstep, but the result of this will be endlessly waiting in the dark. Stepping lightly, carefully and intuitively into one's darkest places for the purpose of clearing them is the forte of this degree. When danger is met with confidence and the belief that we are spiritually protected, then any passage can be negotiated and an end to it found.
Pleiadian Symbol: A caravan takes a shortcut through caves.
Azoth Symbol: A woman finds a lock of hair she kept, but can't remember whose it is.
Seed degree: Virgo 17. A scientist discovers the secret of time travel. (Omega Symbol). To be freed of the restrictions of both past and future is to find joy (the singing bird) even in the midst of sadness (the rain).
An old bald woman talking to her dog. (Chandra Symbol). As we build a relationship with our instinctual self we gain the skills needed to navigate treacherous passages.
Fulfillment degree: Taurus 27. A greenhouse full of tropical plants set in a snowy landscape. (Omega Symbol). Finding joy even in the midst of seeming sorrow we develop the power to thrive and manifesting vibrant aliveness even in the midst of cold and desolation.

Aquarius 15. A geisha applying her makeup. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Inspired
(Degree Angel: YERATEL (YEH-ra-TEL) Silent Partner, Propagation of the Light)
This degree has the ability to play a role as a means of being an integrated part of the world around it. There is a love here of ritual, and of carefully and fully taking on the part to be enacted. And all this for the purpose of revealing a cosmic, exalted energy secretly existing in the seemingly mundane, so that the everyday taken-for-granted world is imbued with mystery and wonder.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A jade burial suit.” A self-consistency is maintained here that seems on the surface regular and smooth. This degree chooses a way of being and holds to it – not because they are inherently rigid or dogmatic, but as a means of trying to make sense out of existence. They tend to have strong opinions and a willingness to express them, but are inherently non-argumentative, and beyond any desire to engage in conflict. They are strongly drawn, sometimes obsessively, to very particular ideas and endeavors, and it is through pursuing these with all the steadiness that their desires demand, that they eventually come to a deep knowledge of who they really are.
This degree is about protecting one's vulnerability so that inner exploration may be safely engaged in.
Pleiadian Symbol: Two crows in a tree watching lovers below embrace.
Azoth Symbol: A man cataloging asteroids and giving names to the nameless ones.
Seed degree: Virgo 29.Pagans purifying themselves beneath a waterfall. (Omega Symbol). Clearing our emotional body in the fresh-flowing waters of joy we are then ready to play our role in the world.
A witch preparing magic mushrooms. (Chandra Symbol). To journey within and learn from the deeply buried inner riches of the self requires one to be impervious to the assaults and promptings of the outer world (the jade burial suit is what offers the protection).
Fulfillment degree: Gemini 27. Cleaning someone's aura with a quartz crystal. (Omega Symbol). Identifying with an exalted role (the geisha) we are able to release all those energies not in alignment with our true self.
Much food stored in a cool cave. (Chandra Symbol). Having resisted so many outer compulsions, conflicts and distractions (by wearing the jade burial suit) we discover within ourselves tremendous amounts of nourishment.
