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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
