Phase 65. Fear of God (Daled Mem Bet)
Angel: DAMABIAH (da-MA-bee-YAH) Fountain of Wisdom
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. This degree is adept at carrying out delicate procedures and of keeping all the strands of its motives and needs straight. It is one who brings people and situations together in an attempt to produce something harmonious and bleautiful – a degree of great refinement.
Pleiadian Symbol: Children playing amongst scattered and diverse toys.

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.

(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.
Azoth Symbol: At a spinning wheel dreams and visions are being spun into realities.

Fulfillment degree: Aries 28.An artist's studio. Many unfinished paintings everywhere. (Omega Symbol). Releasing patterns of stress frees us of the need to complete anything that is not ready to be completed.
A wreath of laurel placed on the head of an old man. (Chandra Symbol). The male has conquered himself without repressing himself, so that he has been able to use his energies creatively and for the support of all life, and receives a prize for doing so.
