Cancer 16. A woman dressed in immaculately clean rags. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Experimental

(Degree Angel: Lehahiah (Lay-HA-hee-YAH) Forget Thyself, Obedience)


The outer for you carries no meaning – is just something to be seen beyond. You are unattached to the usual and supposedly normal way of looking at things. You are searching for purity of vision – to be able to see things as they really are, unclouded by anything. You need to focus on this, and share it with others. It will come in glimpses at first, but more and more steadily as you go.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A skull carved out of quartz crystal.” The rags are without style or dirt, the skull, also is timeless and clear. The mind attempts to allow in light to such an extent that nothing is hidden and no shadows exist. Everything passes through, nothing is held, which results in clearness, openness, and the ability to recognize the spiritual aspect in everything. Here is a very great and complete rejection of everything – the result being there is room to receive what comes in with a tremendous openness. A unique protection strategy.

Pleiadian Symbol: A researcher looking through secret archives. A deep delving into mysteries and resourceful in seeking out obscure sources.

Azoth Symbol: In white jugs dew from the sacred mountain. The capturing of the finest possible essence of spiritual energy.

Seed degree: Libra 4.  By accident, a man finds an invisible tower. (Omega Symbol). Being open to the subtle promptings of inspiration leads us eventually to let go of all the limits and boundaries we impose on our identity.

A woman bites into a lemon and makes a face. (Chandra Symbol). When we allow ourselves to completely experience our full reactions to everything, our mind eventually becomes clear and receptive to higher vibrations.

Fulfillment degree: Capricorn 9.   A woman thinks of all the things that have died to make the soil. (Omega Symbol). Letting go of any and all limiting beliefs about self we realize the richness and possibilities for growth that nature offers us.

A woman washes a man’s feet and dries them with her hair. (Chandra Symbol). The clearer and more receptive our mind becomes the more our intuition is allowed to cleanse and purify our rational understanding.


Some stains remained as pale clouds, faded through thousands of washings. Weaves had worn thin, allowing light to saturate the rags. These were tapestries of toil which she now wore on her body. They seemed tired and used up, which made the people sigh when the looked at her. The rags were contented in their retirement, where they might lay at rest against moist young skin and bask in the sun, and look forward to a casual afternoon of fashion photography.
