Phase 35. Sexual Energy (Kaf Vav Kuf)

Angel: CHAVAKIAH (cha-VA-kee-Yah) Reconcilation

Virgo 21. A geologist studying bands of rock in a cliff. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Experimental

(Degree Angel: YERATEL (YEH-ra-TEL) Silent Partner, Propagation of the Light)

You see how one thing affects another, and how energy builds up in patterns. This intuitive understanding of the past can greatly help you to see where we are now and how we got here. It can also provide us was the key to how to undo or reverse that which needs to be redeemed. You sense all this and use it, though often you may have no idea quite how you do.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is, “Dark river and distant bell.” The dark river makes it difficult to see the currents, or the way ahead. To be carried forward without being able to know where we’re going could evoke fear. The bell, though, calls to us – it’s sound brings hope, and a sense of destination. This degree is compelled to often “work in the dark,” but if the inner voice is faithfully attended to it will guide you into realms of increasing light and clarity.

Pleiadian Symbol: A group of acrobats inventing new routines.

Azoth Symbol: Words written for specific people of future generations.

Seed degree: Sagittarius 6. In a red desert a lush green plantation produced by irrigation. (Omega Symbol). Realizing that we have the power, always, to transcend all limitations, we are able to understanding more deeply the cycles we have been through and how to rise above their restrictions.

A pair of shoes with live wings on each. (Chandra Symbol). Allowing our understanding to fly above the limitations of the rational mind, we hear the call to higher consciousness and are able to successfully navigate all confusions.

Fulfillment degree: Gemini 15. A magician’s tower looms above the surrounding landscape. (Omega Symbol). Seeing deeply and clearly into the past we come into a profound understanding of ourselves that frees us to express our creativity in its purest form.

People gathering salt from the ocean. (Chandra Symbol). Eventually our attentiveness to the ringing of the spiritual bell sets up a vibration that clears all chaos and envelops us in harmony, even in the midst of the clouding illusions.


Surfaces continue to pile up as the sea watches. These are not histories with a remembered beginning, but eras, falling randomly out of a vast, nebulous womb. The geologist keeps counting layers, but the bands grow narrower and multiply, the numbers mumbling something. The sea is behind him, and he imagines it waits for him to finish. But the sea never waits – it is only a place where thirsty water can gather to drink as much rest as it needs.

Virgo 22. A fruit whose seeds always produce a new and different type of fruit. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Sensitive

(Degree Angel: SEHEIAH (say-HAY-ee-YAH) Soul Mats, Longevity, Releases body and mind from negative emotions)

You are highly aware that nothing is ever the same, that, as Heraclitis says, one can’t step into the same stream twice. This means that you bring into this reality a sense of utter freshness that is always and instantaneously renewed. How liberating this can be to people! All you need do is share yourself and your insights, and everyone is renewed.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “ A woman writing with the tip of her fingernail.” No tool such as a pen or a pencil stands between the self and the writing, meaning what is communicated is direct, as close to the self as possible. This degree is capable of great sincerity, and self expression that is vivid, pointed, and acute. There is a great ability here to make oneself heard, to make one’s point. The only thing needed is to clear the self so that the point is undistorted by egotism or any other inner darkness.

Pleiadian Symbol: On a stone gate an insignia on which is found a gryphon, a snake, and an apple.

Azoth Symbol: Bowls of nuts, fruits and grain offered to the Goddess.

Seed Degree: Sagittarius 18. A satyr chasing young maidens who are laughing and screaming. (Omega Symbol). When we give in to our own joy, we are forever surprised at the beauties and wonders that can grow out of it.

Rose petals scattered on a path. (Chandra Symbol). Allowing love to draw us forward in our journey, we discover a wealth of information and guidance coming from within.

Fulfillment degree: Cancer 15. A man in an air-conditioned space suit crossing the desert. (Omega symbol). When we are attentive to our needs and how they change, we are able to be impervious to those forces which attempt to slow us down from fulfilling our destiny.

A boarded-up doorway that leads to another realm. (Chandra Symbol). When we allow the messages inside us to come forth, we are always carried toward those inner regions which need exploration and redemption.


To enter into seeds he had to first make himself small, to return to the seed from which he grew, and then to become even smaller, so that he might enter the seed’s world. It was a way of looking at what would grow out of different seeds, of assessing what might might serve his needs and hence be planted, and what might be left to other forces.

These particular seeds, though, were different. When he descended into one he found himself in a galaxy where myriads of new seeds, each one different, floated. As he gazed into this kaleidoscope of potential he realized what he’d found: the fabled Seed of Seeds.

Virgo 23. A library is burning. A man therein continues to read. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Receptive

(Degree Angel: Reiyel (RAY-ee-YEL) Removing Hatred, Liberation, Helps to remove obstacles and impediments, and to live in a universe without boundaries)

You are not about to allow anything to stand in your way. No matter how chaotic life becomes, and no matter what crises may arise, you are able to follow through on your agendas and hold to your center. When enough is enough, though, and its time to change or shift focus, you have the ability to do this as well.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Giant cacti blooming in the desert.” Just as the man of the Omega Symbol refuses to have his reading interrupted by the fire which has broken out in the library, the cacti will not allow their desire to bloom be stopped by their harsh environment. This degree has the ability to thrive and blossom in harsh conditions and/or unsupportive environments. It will find what it needs, figure out a way to sustain itself, learn what it is driven to learn, and bring forth its own unique wisdom, even if this takes some time. This degree is about the deep and thorough assimilation of specifically required wisdom that eventually allows the self to know and be who it is.

Pleiadian Symbol: A sinuous woman in black who is an adept in cat magic.

Azoth Symbol: An alchemist in a cave digging out a shining black vein of hematite.

Seed degree: Sagittarius 30. By time traveling a man takes a photograph of dinosaurs. (Omega Symbol). When we can tap deeply into the past we lose our sense of urgency, for we become aware that the reaching of our goals is inevitable, and that, on a deeper level, we are already there.

The completion of a large Persian rug. (Chandra Symbol). When we come to the end of anything, we realize that the completion always constitutes a flowering of some sort, and is an affirmation of life.

Fulfillment degree: Leo 15. An ancient text, long kept secret, is revealed to the public. (Omega Symbol). Maintaining our focus and learning to be undisturbed by seeming crises, we are able to foster great revelations.

A woman with many different colored rings on her fingers. (Chandra Symbol). When we set our mind on thriving, even in the most difficult of situations, we draw to ourselves those energies which will enhance and strengthen our life force.


Out of the corners of his eyes he saw the flames, and could smell the smoke, and hear the distant sirens. But he was reading “The Complete History of Waterfalls,” wouldn’t that protect him?

Virgo 24. A satyr sleeping standing up. Roots are growing from his hooves into the ground. (Omega Symbol)Interacting/Responsible

(Degree Angel: Omael (O-ma-EL) Building Bridges, Fertility, Multiplicity
Defeats frustration, despair and depression)

You have the ability to always be in touch with the earth, with practicality, with what is. You also have the power of feeling at home wherever you are, and of using any and all situations for personal sustainment and learning. You are tremendously patient, and will do whatever it takes to accomplish your tasks, no matter how long this may take or how complicated the road may become.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A silver trident.” Here is combined the trident, which is the symbol for the planet Neptune, and the metal of the moon, which is silver. This degree has to do with the refining and perfecting of the intuition, and also the ability to nurture and serve an ideal. There is a conflict here between Virgo’s desire to be accurate, clear and precise, versus the need to listen to emotions, instincts, and the psychic self. These two sides of one’s being can seem to be at war with each other, but it is through their interaction that both sides are empowered.

This degree always wants to go deeper into the meaning of existence, just as the roots on the bottom of the satyr’s foot are growing deep into the ground. It will analyze something from every angle possible, it will get into finer and finer details of whatever it is dealing with. It may discover new things that have never been found or considered before. But ultimately it always need to realize that the intellectual mind is just a tool, and that its rightful place is as a tool to serve a reality greater than itself, and which can only be merged with, rather than ever completely objectified.

Pleiadian Symbol: A little girl hugging a puppy.

Azoth Symbol: A feeling of deep connection among a small group of friends.

Seed degree: Capricorn 12. Mold growing on a diamond. (Omega Symbol). When we give up the idea that we are in any way imperfect, we are able to accept the world around us and take in the nourishment and secrets it has to offer.

A beautiful, erotic fat woman eating chocolates. (Chandra Symbol). Binging and excess will always lead to a rejection of those states, and a coming into a consciousness of refinement and clarity.

Fulfillment degree: Virgo 15. A man wearing paper wings jumps off a cliff and soars through the sky. (Omega Symbol). When you can allow yourself to connect deeply with the earth and with physical reality, you are then able to explore the realm of ideas and thinking without getting lost or crashing back to reality.

A man inherits a vast fortune. (Chandra Symbol). Deeply connecting with our own psychic powers, we realize what endless potentials they hold, which creates in us a desire, eventually, to use them to advance both ourselves and others.


One of the most gratifying aspects of being a satyr is this tendency to turn into a tree during the night. Sometimes in dreams his arms raised and multiplied, sprouting leaves and attracting birds who built nests. In the morning it was always thoughts of roaming that shrunk the roots and smoothed, once again, his skin.

Virgo 25. A man crawling on his hands and knees through dust keeps finding jewels and other valuable items. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Inspired

(Degree Angel: Lecabel (LAY-ca-BEL) Finish what you start, Intellectual Talent)

You sense that you are going to get where you are going – that even if the journey gets diverted, somehow it will eventually get back on track. And it the meantime there are so many little side trips that can be made, so many treasures to be discovered and learned from – and that all this could never happen if you only set sights on the goal ahead and tried to race toward it.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A gold ring in the form of a snake swallowing its tail.” Since we are the journey there is, ultimately, no place to go, for we are already there. But, of course, the illusion of the journey persists, and so we keep going forward. And when we arrive at any seeming place of completion we realize that it is not just a completion but the beginning of another journey – and eventually as we keep taking these journeys we realize that all journeys are the same journey, and that this journey is always toward ourselves.

This degree is about learning from oneself, and realizing that there is nothing we lack, that we have every possibility of completely caring for, nurturing, fulfilling and completing ourselves. It is also about returning to things again and again and extracting ever finer layers of meaning from them.

Pleiadian Symbol: A woman dressed in mourning, smiling behind her transparent black veil.

Azoth Symbol: In the night someone is softly singing in their sleep.

Seed degree: Capricorn 24. Although he is afraid of heights, a man continues to ascend a flight of invisible stairs. (Omega Symbol). When we allow ourselves, on faith, to rise above the darkness of this world, we come to realize that the higher spiritual realities are actually reflected in all those seemingly insignificant things that have been underneath our feet all the time.

Stalactites and stalagmites almost grown together. (Chandra Symbol). We move, gradually and inevitably toward union with that which will fulfill us, and when we finally experience that union we realize that it is ourselves who are our own fulfillment.

Fulfillment degree: Libra 15. Young girls harvesting the choicest leaves of green tea. (Omega Symbol). When we patiently find our own way and tune out the coercions of the world around us, we are free to bring caring and sensitivity to our every act.
Prehistoric paintings on the walls of a vast chamber of a cave. (Chandra Symbol).

Observing life with care, delicacy, and sensitivity, we bring a cosmic vibration to all our relationships.


He wondered if the dust was a kind of magic soil that could spontaneously generate such treasures. As he peering into it, moving it aside with his hands he found more and more items the longer he looked. Was it his own eyes that were growing these precious things? No, he realized, it was the slowness of his movement which kept slowing ever more – his own patience, of which he had only begun to realize the vastness, and the untold realms of wealth therein.
