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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
