Virgo 11. The smell of ancient perfume as an Egyptian tomb is opened. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Experimental

(Degree Angel: LAVIAH (LAH-vee-YAH) Great Escape, Revelation)


You have the power to tap into energies in a direct way and to grasp situations immediately. You deeply feel what is going on around you, and know that most of it has to do with ties to the past that have created chronic stuck places. At your best you are able to help others to release these energy knots so that they may move on.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A four-year-old girl dressed as a nurse.” The Omega symbol portrays something very old, and the Chandra Symbol something very young. But the scent of ancient perfume envelops immediately us in the energy of the past the moment we encounter it, and the mere presence of the four-year-old girl dressed as a nurse has an immediate healing effect on us. This degree signifies the magic of tapping directly and spontaneously into the wavelength of healing, and merging with our inner wisdom.

Pleiadian Symbol: As a youth ages he grows to look less and less like his mother. The gradual separation from all models as a way of progressively finding one’s own identity.

Azoth Symbol: Birds thought to be extinct are seen flocking in trees high in the mountains. As one elevates one’s consciousness one reconnects to forgotten aspirations and desires.

Seed degree: Leo 6. Hidden photos of a deceased woman are discovered. (Omega Symbol). As we tap more and more clearly into the past, the wholeness of it eventually opens up to our intuition.

A hamster running in a treadmill. (Chandra Symbol). Feeling a strong urge to exercise the powers we feel inside ourselves, we allow ourselves to innocently take on roles in which we can be of service to those around us.

Fulfillment degree: Leo 14. Toward the center of a galaxy, the concentration of stars becomes denser and denser. (Omega Symbol). Tapping into the energies of the past always tends toward carrying us into the heart of meaning.

Fields of jasmine flowers. (Chandra Symbol). Allow the healing energies of our love and innocence to come forth spontaneously from ourselves, we generate a powerful joy that energizes and gives hope to others.


The breathing stops for a moment, for fear that with the next breath the perfume might have vanished, might have been only some hallucination born of anticipation and long digging and darkness. But when he continues to breathe he finds that the scent had both vanished and lingered, the way the faintest of winds does on a lake, just before the surface has grown too dark to observe.

A strangely fresh smell, like the scent of a body that has journeyed all night and has developed the faintest residue of perspiration mixed with morning fog. Like all of the greatest perfumes its fragrance unidentifiable, the only ingredient his nose able to detect with any certainty being starlight.
