Virgo – 15
Degree Angel: NELCHAEL (NEL-ka-EL) Eradicate Plague, Ardent Desire to Learn, Transforming/Inspired
TITLE: TRUST IN THE SUPPORTIVE NATURE OF THE UNIVERSE
Omega Symbol: A man wearing paper wings jumps off a cliff and soars through the sky.
You have your own ways of doing things, and those are the right ways for you, but it can sometimes be difficult for you to find and use your own ways, as others are often telling you that your methods won’t work. Actually your methods are perfectly suited to you, and when coupled with your enthusiasm and self-confidence they will always carry you to your desired destination. The secret to success for you is to listen to yourself. You can be supported by things that may seem flimsy or dubious, and you can derive power from a lightness of attitude and approach.
Pleiadian Symbol: A lace handkerchief suffused with lavender scent.
You rise above negative atmospheres and breathe your own self-made air of refinement and beauty. You protect yourself from toxic atmospheres, especially by focusing on what is pure, cultured and uplifting. You bring to the world around you a magic beauty which can drown out all that is oppressive and ugly.
Chandra Symbol: A man inherits a vast fortune.
Your problem is not prosperity – you have so much to work with. The problem is what are you going to do with what you have? If you become intimidated by your own gifts you may hold them back, try to save them up for a rainy day which may never come. It’s important that you use what you have, that you share your wealth of ideas and abilities with others, without allowing questions about whether or not you’re doing the right thing to stop you from experimenting. Remember: there is always something to learn from a failed investment.
On the other hand it is also important that you do not render your gifts worthless by wasting them on unfulfilling or unrewarding endeavors. This symbols seems so much like what everyone wants, but a very great responsibility goes with it, for it can create much karma – either for good or ill.
Azoth Symbol: In a forest quartz crystals hanging from trees.
You are clearly receptive to the messages of nature, which gives you and others the faith and lightness to soar. You can take what you finds around yourself and use it to enhance the positivity and power that is already there.
Seed Degree: Virgo – 24
A satyr sleeping standing up. Roots are growing from his hooves into the ground. (Omega Symbol) When we are deeply and harmoniously grounded in physical reality it gives us a secure basis for exploring higher realities.
A silver trident. (Chandra Symbol). The cleansing and clearing of our intuitive perception allows us to see the riches we already possess.
Fulfillment Degree: Sagittarius – 14
A man communicates in graceful sign language. (Omega Symbol). Reaching into higher realities we find things we desire to communicate, and, realizing that these go beyond words, we increasingly allow our every act and gesture to become the communication.
A terrarium filled with carnivorous plants. (Chandra Symbol). Realizing the wealth we possess, we come to realize that using it to support life requires sensitivity to needs and careful selectivity.
If the man is the size of a dragonfly. If the cliff is three inches high. If he becomes a citizen of the wind. If gravity could make an occasional exception. If a swarm of butterflies creates an updraft.
We watched his flight, and running to where he’d landed in a field, we saw that he was also made of paper, but turned to flesh as he woke.
The reason that the sky is always clear over a certain part of the Forest of Teloth is that the denizens who live near there have hung all of the trees of the region with quartz tied to strings which dangle from the trees branches. This part of Teloth Forest is known to be the home of a great many salamanders as witnessed by the thousands of small caves found everywhere, salamanders being very partial to carrying out their lives in caves.
Their force keeps the sky free of clouds so that all day long the sun may shine through the trees and entering the quartz crystals cause them to scatter rainbows everywhere into the forest shadows.
“But if they’re forever hiding in their caves what care they if rainbows are dancing outside their doors?” asked Magrena.
“Salamanders are blind,” said Irnad. “They’ve given up their eyes so that they might better see the inner light, and even though they cannot see the rainbows of our world they live in a world of inner rainbows nourished by the ones we know.”
