You have a very great ability to just be yourself, and simple as this seems, it oddly enough can cause problems, for the question is, who are you, really? What seems so obvious can actually be quite unknowable, for what appears as your surface can only reflect the tiniest part of your essence. The truth is, your image is just an image, but one that everyone, including yourself, can learn much from, for it fosters greater self-awareness.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A solid gold egg.” Here is an acute awareness of perfection, which, by contrast also invokes an equally acute awareness of what is wrong and where the flaws and inadequacies lie. This degree deeply senses what furthers evolution and what thwarts it. Any tendency here to idealize the self will result in suffering. But any tendency to attune more and more finely to the eternal perfection that has always been within will nourish both the growth of self and others.

Pleiadian Symbol: Molten glass being wrought into fantastic forms.  Clarity moving into multiform manifestations.

Azoth Symbol: An elaborate assemblage of symbols turns into a world.  The interconnecting of energies into a living wholeness.

Seed degree: Cancer 11. A hidden treasure waiting to be found. (Omega Symbol). Knowing that all we need is stored within we are able to be at peace with the way life is – whatever it is.

Monstrosities in glass jars at a side show. (Chandra Symbol). From experiencing seeming failures we come to a deeper and deeper understanding of life and a realization that everything has meaning and purpose.

Fulfillment degree: Sagittarius 11. A woman perceives her seemingly mundane world as beautiful and mysterious. (Omega Symbol). As attachment is let go of we come to see beyond the illusions that desires have created and perceive instead the spiritual ramifications of everything.

A string of pearls. (Chandra Symbol). When we allow ourselves to completely and truly be ourselves, life is ultimately softened and simplified in such a way that we perceive the harmony and accord between all its various parts.


When they covered him with gold leaf they were very careful and gentle in their work so as not to wake him. He could feel them giving him a new skin of gold, and was happy to receive their ministrations and love, all the time keeping his eyes closed, and continuing to appear as if he slept, and at times smiling faintly, for the application of the gold tickled, and the way the sun shone upon it brought a lovely warmth to his stone body.
