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.
