You have the capacity to attune to spiritual realities in a constant and patient manner. You project an aura of peace and exaltation into the world, and even when you are busy at work, or grappling with challenges or conflicts, this calm and lucid atmosphere you create is still there, and helps to imbue the people around you with harmony. The more you become aware of this the more you will be able to allow it to happen, and hence the greater its positive effect will be.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A holly bush covered with berries. It is in the snow.” The holly is alive and thriving in the death of winter. This degree has the power to bring vitality to bleak and barren landscapes – to affirm life even in the midst of those forces which are against it. A light is shined into the darkness, persistently and joyfully, helping others to see joy and possibility where none seems to exist.

Pleidian Symbol: Newly hatched birds joyously running and hopping through a meadow.

Azoth Symbol: Runners flexing and warming up their legs.

Seed degree: Sagittarius 5. Psychically attuned to each others bodies, women perform a spontaneous dance. (Omega Symbol). Entering into a deep and subtle rapport with others we come into a higher and purer level of emotion.

Three women materializing out of a fog. (Chandra Symbol). Embracing the completeness of one’s inner feminine wisdom we are able to effectively grapple with the conflict between our higher and lower natures.

Fulfillment degree: Sagittarius 12. Reaching up, a man writes on the sky. (Omega Symbol). Finding peace and clarity by focusing our consciousness on higher realities we are able to connect with the whole of life and to express the purest truth that is within us.

Icicles melting. (Chandra symbol). As we clear such emotions as anger and jealousy we experience a softening and loosening of all pent-up emotions.


High, where air is thin, the water of a small lake had no more awareness of its confinement than it would were it in a vast sea, and from the color that arose from it we saw that the water knew no limit to its own depth either, were there limit or not.

We walked down to the lake’s edge, and because of the altitude I labored at breathing, much like a fish might in water that has grown thin, or which has turned into a heavy mist, though the little air there was to breathe seemed as limpid and clear as I imagine those spaces between stars to be.

It was here I first saw the profound and endless darkness underlying all light, and realized the way darkness loves and supports the sun, and the wind too, and the water as well, and all other things, whose desire causes them to come into, and exist for awhile, in its emptiness.
