You are trying to make sense out of your experiences, trying to find the grains of truth, the elements of value amidst all the random input. At worst your world is fragmented, and if so it’s mirroring your inner feelings of fragmentation. You need to always be looking more deeply and closely at what your finding, rather than just always seeking to find more.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A man mixing cement.” You want to find ways to fit things together in a substantial, permanent way, so that the bond is strong and sure. This has its place, but if these tightly fused concepts you’re working with cause you to lose sight of your heart, and the need to give and receive love, you may find yourself wandering in a field, like the man of the Omega Symbol asking, “where is the point?” or “what is the point?”

Pleiadian Symbol: A medium channeling a spirit drawing. Allowing energies from other worlds to flow through one’s being without the intervention of conscious objectivity. This has the effect of inducing energies to converge and integrate – to “cement” together. (See the Chandra Symbol).

Azoth Symbol: A man in a foreign country in disguise. He is entering a site forbidden to outsiders. The ability to slip unnoticed into other paradigms and worlds as a means of learning their hidden inner workings.

Seed degree:Cancer 12. A diamond light enough to float. (Omega Symbol). Not allowing ourselves to feel burdened by the ideal of perfection, we content ourselves with seeking out small truths and other precious items which will eventually reconstitute our spiritual wholeness.

Carefully a surgeon begins the dissection of a corpse. (Chandra Symbol). Once we have deeply looked into the structure of things, we are prepared to effectively put things together to create our own structures.

Fulfillment degree: Gemini 14. The sound of drumming brings everyone into the present. (Omega Symbol). Searching for something, finding it, and continuing to search, since we always want more, we come to realize that what we are looking for is right here and right now

A sorcerer materializes an amethyst cross. (Chandra Symbol). Working with the solid and dense aspects of life leads us, eventually, to embrace the fact that these qualities are illusions and capable of being manipulated by one’s intent.


As he walked, gazing at the ground, he could hear in the creaking of tree branches the taps of artisans hitting the stone, chipping the flint. The cold wind and blue sky were hard and smooth as the stones.

Not so long ago they had been here. Indians, living by the river, making things out of the stones, tools and arrows. He bent to pick up an arrow whose point he saw sticking out of the rich dirt. It was perfect, unharmed. He would put it with the rest of his collection, in a shadowbox where all the arrows pointed in the same direction. And leave the others, still in the ground, to point in all different directions, to whatever times and places they pleased.
