Virgo 15. A man wearing paper wings jumps off a cliff and soars through the sky. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Inspired

(Degree Angel: NELCHAEL (NEL-ka-EL) Eradicate Plague, Ardent Desire to Learn)


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.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “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 it. If you become intimidated by your own gifts you may hold them back, save them up for a rainy day which may never come. It is important that you use what you have, that you share your wealth of ideas and abilities with others, without allowing your 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.

Pleiadian Symbol: A lace handkerchief suffused with lavender scent.  The ability to rise about negative atmospheres and breathe one’s own air of refinement and beauty.

Azoth Symbol: In a forest quartz crystals hanging from trees.  Clear receptivity to the messages of nature, which gives us the faith and lightness to soar.

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 awoke.
