Phase 9. Angelic Influences (Hey Zayin Yud)
Angel: HAZIEL (HA-zee-EL) Divine Mercy and Forgiveness
Taurus 11. A man jumping into a river, melting, and flowing away. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Experimental
(Degree Angel: Hahahel (HA-ha-HEL) Self-Esteem, Mission)
You can unite so intensely with the experience of the moment that you become it and disappear. The intensity of this can threaten other people, but don’t allow that to stop you. You have an irresistible urge to take things to the farthest degree possible – its wonderful, transformative, and exhilarating. Follow it faithfully to wherever it takes you.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A woman with flames for hair.” Here is a merging with fire, as the Omega Symbol is a merging with water in the Omega Symbol. One would think that the woman’s head would burn up, but it doesn’t. this degree knows that we can withstand more than we think we can, and that there is no reason to fear intensity. If we give in to the intensity of our vision what is burned away is heavy karma that has kept us from manifesting our true self.
Pleiadian Symbol: Fairies enshrouding a garden in mist.
Azoth Symbol: Suddenly a vista from the past opens up.
Seed degree: Leo 2. On the surface of water, flecks of dust floating. (Omega Symbol). Connecting to the countless subtle messages the universe is always sending us, we are inspired to find vehicles through which to channel the energies of the spiritual light.
A horn of brass to be used as a hearing aid. (Chandra Symbol). The more closely and intently we listen to ourselves the more we become attuned to our own unique creative vision.
Fulfillment degree: Pisces 3. Just before a wedding, a purifying rainstorm. (Omega Symbol). Imprinting our positive intent onto our life in a general way imbues all our relationships and encounters with an harmonious, life-giving tone.
An eye gazing out of the top of a pyramid. (Chandra Symbol). Focusing on pure love allows us to perceive more clearly the patterns of the universe and the way they all fit together.
The water in him is aware of other waters, the faraway seas and the river which is close, just beyond his bedroom window.
At night as he sleeps the water in him listens to the river, his veins and arteries are carrying the echoes of it through his heart.
Now he is running over the grass in the full moon toward the river’s bank.
Leaping he extends vastly toward the sea, bifurcates, becomes tributaries, brooks and waterfalls.
At last, relieved, he has become the river.
Taurus 12. In a sacred precinct, many prayers tied around rocks and hanging from trees. (Omega Symbol)Transforming/Sensitive
(Degree Angel: Mikael (MI-ka-EL) Revealing the Concealed, Political Authority and Order)
You understand that ultimate protection is the result of the continual accumulation of positive intent and loving energy reflected in everything you do. You are adamantly focused on your optimistic outlook, and emanate this energy even when you may outwardly seem to be manifesting something else. No matter what you do, it is the inherent harmony of your being that nourishes the world.
The Chandra symbol for this degree is “A very old elephant.” The elephant is in tune with the ways of the earth. It is full of acceptance, unhurried, willing to take life as it comes. It is deeply attuned to the ways of nature, just as those people in the Omega Symbol who have filled the rocks and trees with their prayers are seeking to align their own energies with nature.
Pleiadian Symbol:A stream of visitors viewing ancient artifacts.
Azoth Symbol: Idlers going wherever the river takes them.
Seed degree: Leo 14. Toward the center of the galaxy, the concentration of stars becomes denser and denser. (Omega Symbol). Focusing on our inner brightness we project it outwardly to bless all we encounter.
Fields of jasmine flowers. (Chandra Symbol). Filled with joy and hope we are able to be true to the unique wisdom we carry in a steady, patient manner.
Fulfillment degree: Virgo 4. A woman boiling clothes in a cauldron with shavings of lye soap. (Omega Symbol). We set our positive intents and then go about the business of purifying and clearing our reality.
A small piglet dressed in baby’s clothes. (Chandra Symbol). In touch with our innate wisdom we accept the reality that when we express it in its pure form the world will inevitably see us as strange, and that those willing to look deeper will see this strangeness as a reflection of their own uniqueness.
Within seeds are formulas for the plants they will grow, and within prayers are formulas also. Seeds need water and soil and heat. What do the prayers need? What grows from a prayer? You are looking at it – all around you is what grew from prayers – even you – you grew from a prayer. The universe is praying constantly and endless varieties of seeds appear to fulfill those prayers.
The universe itself is a seed, fed by light and sustained by darkness, from which illusions grow, illusions that draw us onward toward ourselves.
Taurus 13. A fruit that smells terrible but tastes wonderful. (Omega Symbol)Transforming/Receptive
(Degree Angel: Veuliah (vay-OO-lee-AH) Defying Gravity, Prosperity)
You are aware of the truth that what anything seems to be on first encountering it might be very different from what it really is. You are willing to further pursue things that might have initially repelled you, or which seem unlikely to yield any fulfillment. Through openness, patience and persistence you can find much of great value that you might otherwise have never explored.
The Chandra symbol for this degree is “A treatise on imaginary creatures.” This treatise is an exploration of possibilities, a reorganizing of known elements into new patterns and possibilities. What results might be grotesque, or beautiful, or both, just as the fruit of the Omega Symbol is at once repelling and yet delicious. Nature is constantly experimenting and it is our destiny to do so as well.
Pleiadian Symbol: Sacred artifacts being secretly vacated from a city.
Azoth Symbol: Bright sunlight on white daisies.
Seed degree: Leo 26. In a bookstore, a chance meeting of long-lost friends. (Omega symbol). Encountering in life those things we hold dear, we are made aware of the fears and conflicts which thwart our fulfillment.
A fire burns at the bottom of an old well. (Chandra Symbol). A deeply held inward fire blazes forth into flames of creative imagination.
Fulfillment degree: Libra 4. By accident, a man finds an invisible tower. (Omega Symbol). As we become more aware of what attracts and what repels us we gain an expanded overview of the terrain of ourselves.
A woman bites into a lemon and makes a face. (Chandra Symbol). The denizens of our imagination emerge from the cave of our psyche and allow us to experience the intensity of our feelings and reactions.
It was the serpent who told her how good it tasted. Could she believe him? She smelled death in the fruit, the stench of rot. But she craved something new-a taste
of adventure. and even if the serpent lied to her, she could always spit it out. To break the law did,’t she actually have to eat the fruit? Just a little piece on the tongue-that was legal wasn’t it? There’s a way to find out…
Taurus 14. A woman making her way to the center of a labyrinth. (Omega Symbol)Transforming/Responsible
(Degree Angel: Yelahiah (yay-LAH-hee-YAH) Sweetening Judgment, Karmic Warrior)
There are things in life that magnetize you. Sometimes you don’t even know what they are, but will feel compelled to keep going, almost like a bloodhound trailing a scent. If you try to deny this urge to seek you will experience inner discord until you give into it. You need to be free enough of all commitments to follow these inner urges, if you are to fulfill your destiny.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “An old lady selling bunches of violets on a street corner.” What you have to offer the world may seem simple, modest, even common, but has about it the energy of spiritual regeneration and can help others to re-attune to their evolutionary direction – often without even knowing that it is your energy that has catalyzed this. You carry a wisdom that is more profound than it may seem on the surface and which helps exceedingly to remind others of why they’re here. This truly concerns coming back to the center of one’s labyrinth.
Pleiadian Symbol: A child building a little sand castle on the beach.
Azoth Symbol: A sage looking up toward the summit of a mountain.
Seed degree: Virgo 8. People dragging a beached whale back into the ocean. (Omega Symbol). Sensing our own deepest needs we move through all the twistings and turnings of ourselves toward our center.
A man thinking up names for colors. (Chandra Symbol). Trying to express the subtleties of our vision we eventually give up complexity and opt for a sweetly simple giving of upliftment and beauty to others.
Fulfillment degree: Scorpio 4. An albino woman unaffected by the rays of the Sun. (Omega Symbol). When we find our meaning and purpose deeply and completely, the ego falls away and we no longer need to defend ourselves against the goading influence of selfishness.
A loud roar as a tornado approaches. (Chandra Symbol). Innocently and simply offering what we have to the world draws to us forces to purge our karma.
The labyrinth is just a pattern on a floor, drawn with lines to indicate the corridors. As she walks them she can see the center, knows that at any moment she might step over the lines, ignore the labyrinth’s patttern and move directly to the labyrinth’s heart.
But she’s enjoying the twists and turns, enjoying the long journey. And besides, she sees up ahead a lodging house where she can spend the night before continuing her adventure.
Taurus 15. A platinum crucible. (Omega Symbol)Transforming/Inspired
(Degree Angel: Sehaliah (say-HA-lee-YAH) The Power of Prosperity, Motivation and Willfulness)
The purpose of a platinum crucible in scientific terms is that platinum has an extremely high melting point, and so therefore can be used to melt substances which also have a high melting point but one that is lower than platinum. In other words, the essence of platinum has an extreme resistance to heat.
You are a highly receptive person, and are learning in this lifetime how to let the negativity that you accumulate be burned away by the fires of your love. You need to learn how to maintain emotional peace and tranquility even in the midst of the energetic turbulence swirling around you. As you perfect this, your being expresses more and more the transmutative power of peace.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “His best friend sings a song at his funeral.” Love heals the fear of change. The constancy of love is like the platinum crucible which can withstand the fires of transformation. The secret of this degree is that through losing what we have again and again we come to learn what it is we truly have, which is identical with who we truly are – eternal beings.
Pleiadian Symbol: An invisible man shrouded in clothing.
Azoth Symbol: A coven of elders sharing a meal during the full moon.
Seed degree: Virgo 20. Worshipers circumambulating a sacred stone. (Omega Symbol). Devoting ourselves to working with the challenges of the material world, wwe become receptive to whatever deep and profound transmutations need to occur.
The expanse of the Himalayas in the distance. (Chandra Symbol). The grandeur and sublimity of spiritual realities impels us o thank the world for beauty which has passed and to accept its passing, knowing within ourselves that we are eternally connected to it.
Fulfillment degree: Sagittarius 4. A great teacher lecturing in an empty classroom. (Omega Symbol). Faithfully supporting the process of change we hold to our path and our truth even when it seems non-productive.
A young prince undresses to bathe in a pool. (Chandra Symbol). Letting go of the past and acknowledging our enduring connection to love, we are able to engage with our emotional sself more directly and vitally.
(From Aandar’s Secrets of Alchemy): . . .”A bowl which shines so smoothly and brightly it appears as a mirror. It is platinum, a metal that hides in minute amounts in gold, for the purpose of anchoring it in these lower realms. For gold is a potent fire, that otherwise might burn that which it desires to enliven, were it not for platinum’s protection. And so, to soften gold’s fearful dragon, this barely discernible touch of pure cold, given by platinum, soothes gold’s fierceness, and creates for it a womb wherein it may more fully incubate its wonders.
“It is for this reason the sages have said that a tiny grain of blue ice lies, unmelted, at the center of the Sun.”
