Leo 13. Hidden passages in a house. Over time, their secret has been forgotten. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Receptive

(Degree Angel: Umabel (OO-ma-BEL) Water, Affinity and Friendship)


You have in you the means to surprise other people, and to do so in such a way that can open them up to a greater reality and get a clearer perception of the vastness of their inner being. You are especially perceptive when it comes to seeing how people are put together and how they hide from themselves. Your revelations can help them to rediscover lost parts of themselves.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A man painting scenes on a ceiling” Looking all the time at the walls, we forget the ceiling – until we look up, just as we forgot the hidden passages of the Omega Symbol. The painting on the ceiling creates the illusion of space and thereby overcomes the limitations and confinements of the roof and ceiling, just as the hidden passages overcome the limitations imposed by the more commonly used and obvious passages in the house. This degree is about creating more space, more possibilities, more options, finding new ways, knowing there are no enduring limits to what may happen or be accomplished. Talents and abilities abound, and this person knows they don’t just abound in oneself, but are also in everyone else, albeit often latent, hidden, or denied.

Pleiadian Symbol: An old man on a porch which looks out over a stormy sea.  Perceiving with wisdom the illusions created by emotional turbulence.

Azoth Symbol: An enlightened one experiencing the eternal absolute underlying the ever-changing phenomena of physical existence.  Perceiving of reality from one’s silent and clear core which is what reveals greater realities.

Seed degree: Leo 29. A tiny poisonous frog with a brightly colored body. (Omega Symbol). Desiring to ward off whatever is threatening to us we eventually come to realize that the best way to do this is to retrieve and reintegrate the lost parts of our being from which we have become cut off.

A broken sword. (Chandra Symbol). Feeling our own powerlessness we seek empowerment from connection with higher powers.

Fulfillment degree: Aries 12. Before the end of a movie a man leaves the theater. (Omega Symbol). Finding and reintegrating those lost parts of ourselves we find we are no longer attached to the stories we have been telling ourselves to attempt to explain and justify who we are.

An old woman hears the stars talking to her at night. (Chandra Symbol). Continually turning our attention to higher realities we eventually are able to communicate directly with them.


In her little cottage one day she happen to press on a certain stone in the pantry which opened a door to a grand marble stairway lined with candelabras and pedastaled statues and liveried servants awaiting her commands. So she put on her best dress and lifting her skirts ascended the first flight, where a great sunburst of stained glass shone on the landing.

Turning the corner, and completing her ascent she found herself in her little bedroom with its rug of rags, and a bunch of wildflowers on the nightstand by her bed, with its patched coverlet, and a linden tree blooming, just outside the window.

The next day, when she pressed the stone to see the staircase once again, she found only a narrow hallway filled with cobwebs.
