Virgo 3. A little girl hugs a giant quartz crystal larger than she. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Receptive

(Degree Angel: HAZIEL (HA-zee-EL) Angelic Influences, Divine Mercy and Forgiveness)


No matter how wise and mature you may be there is an innocent part of you that is able to embrace the utter clarity of simplicity. The soul can become overburdened with memories, desires, and karmas, but you know how to release all this cleanly and clearly. The energy you bring into the world is very healing and necessary.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A woman doing delicate embroidery.” This degree is capable of quiet precision and focus. The woman of the Chandra symbol performs a task which requires control and carefulness. The little girl of the Omega symbol is acting in the opposite way as she spontaneously expresses her feelings. This degree is capable of both ways of acting, but in whatever it does it is always gentle and restorative.

Pleiadian Symbol: Tall guardians from a faraway star. The protecting and stabilizing of one’s highest hopes and visions, which may manifest in the smallest actions of refinement and beautification as occur in the Chandra symbol.

Azoth Symbol: Boat makers selecting the best trees. Refined and careful preparation for all journeys of consciousness. Thoughtful, precise work, with consideration given to future needs.

Seed degree: Aries 30. A crown which causes one to levitate. (Omega Symbol). Overcoming the heaviness of the physical world, we are able to innocently and directly embrace the clarity of the universe, and the messages it has to give us.

An anatomist delivers a lecture on the kidneys. (Chandra Symbol). Understanding more and more clearly how everything relates to everything else, we are inspired to express ourselves in a way that is careful and patient, yet which does not repress our energies.

Fulfillment degree: Sagittarius 13. Sitting for her portrait, Mona Lisa feels as if millions of people are watching her. (Omega Symbol). The more we innocently embrace clarity, the more we find ourselves in rapport with the whole universe.

An embalmer at work on a mummy. (Chandra Symbol). Carefully and beautifully expressing ourselves, we are able to uncover and look into much that has been hidden.


Stones engage in much waiting, especially those that live in the ground. The waiting of stones knows no anticipation, but is filled with the enjoyment of eons spent circling a star, and sometimes observing the rise and fall of life above, or maybe occasionally the novas of suns, or collisions of galaxies.

After being dug from the mine and transported into the sunlight the crystal awoke, and even though the sleep had been for millions of years the waking was effortless, for clear stones fill with light instantly, their ground-blindness healed in the blink of an eye.

Then, only a short time later – several years – the little girl appeared and the destined hug occurred. It was the universe’s way of saying “thanks.”
