d12-cancer 150 150 John Sandbach

* Cancer-12


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




Omega Symbol: A diamond light enough to float.


You seek what is perfect, and rather than being frustrated by the flaws you find everywhere around you you need to realize that all is already perfect – the perfect situation and circumstances for your personal growth. Perfection needs to be something that uplifts other by giving them a beautiful, clear, and light-filled picture of spiritual realities, rather than a burden which only serves to make one feel limited and inadequate.


Pleiadian Symbol: A woman breast feeding a baby is seeing in her mind its former incarnations.


The vision of the hidden sources of whatever one gives birth to and fosters. The process of nurturing opens one up to an intuitive realization of the soul’s journey.


Chandra Symbol: Carefully a surgeon begins the dissection of a corpse.


This image is about research into the structure of life – the attempt to understand the function of various aspects of existence and how those functions relate to each other – as well as what can go wrong with the system.


How radically this contrasts with the lightness and perfection of the Omega Symbol. The message is that in the realm of the material and imperfect we find, it we look closely enough the light, purity and harmony of the spiritual, that is always trying to shine through. This degree strives toward perfection, and knows, intuitively that to find it will take patience and much careful looking.


The 12th degree of all the signs is always about learning to let go of the burden of one’s fears and worries and to have faith that the universe is perfectly set up to assist in one’s growth. The message here is that there is no ultimate security in the physical plane, but if one can embrace the perfection that exists beyond it, one can find the enduring security that Cancer is always striving for.


Azoth Symbol: In the dark depths of the ocean a glowing fish encountered.


The perception of marvelous understandings hidden deep in the subconscious, and the possibility that these may rise to the surface, like the diamond of the Omega Symbol. This is what the surgeon of the Chandra Symbol is seeking.


Seed Degree: Leo – 16


An angel appears to lost travelers and shows them the right direction. (Omega Symbol). Through allowing in the generosity of the universe we become increasingly generous ourselves, meaning that we grow impervious to confusion and discord.


A red faced man, tears running down his cheeks. He is laughing convulsively. (Chandra Symbol). Allowing our system to purge itself of heaviness, sorrow, and other negative emotions, we are able to come into a deeper understanding of the inner workings of our own being.


Fulfillment Degree: Virgo – 9


In a freshly plowed field, a man searching for arrowheads. (Omega Symbol). Sensing the presence of perfection underlying everything, we become content with the small things of life, and desire to recapture the lost sparks of light, which are those energies that have been wasted on negativity.


A man mixing cement. (Chandra Symbol). Having looked deeply into the inner workings of things – including ourselves – we fee an intense desire to – put the fragments of life back together in a meaningful way.


Omega Oracle


The inner traveler Tinarus speaks of diamonds so light that they bear only the vaguest connection to gravity. They are found on a certain hidden island that wards off explorers, for the island resists all thought and perception, and so is never seen by passing travelers.


Tinarus says that beings from the star called Shenkar are the ones who grew this island to be as a womb to hold these miraculous gems, which the island is devoted to both concealing and protecting. It is said that the purpose of these gems is to draw into themselves and digest a part of the heaviness of our world, so that we may be, at least to an extent, unburdened of our darkness.


Occasionally by the action of an earthquake or volcano or the undermining of a cliff by the perpetual pounding of surf one of these diamonds is dislodged and floats away, wandering the ocean until it washes up far from its home on one of the coasts we know.


Tinarus says that even when a diamond of this island enters in this manner our world that it is never found, for it becomes invisible, and is only to be seen occasionally in dreams, where it finds a new home in which to work its magic, but is hardly ever remembered.
