Omega Symbol: Deep in a cave, a large albino snake.


You sense a pure wisdom deep within yourself, but it can be illusive, and difficult to express. You are highly attuned to the mystery and wonder of existence, and refuse to allow it to be watered down or rationalized, or portrayed as lesser than it is in any way. Your purpose is to stay tuned to spiritual realities, even in the midst of the tremendous pressure which The Mundane exerts.


Pleiadian Symbol: In the mental body a web of golden light flickers with energy.


You sense deeply meaningful ideas in their latent form, and are trying to find a way to communicate them.  You can feel into the meaning behind things but to express exactly what it is can be challenging.  Eventually you come more and more to see that these beautiful truths you are witness to are most clearly and vividly expressed through poetry, actions, and non-verbal means guided intuitively.


Chandra Symbol: A magic coin that has only one side.


You can’t spend this coin. It’s just a surface with nothing behind it. It’s like everything else – just an illusion. You’re aware of the insubstantial nature of most everything that we hold to be precious. And being aware of this you seek that which has an enduring and eternal value, finding it, at last, in pure consciousness which has transcended attachment to any relative, lesser and illusory values – those bought and sold with one-sided coins. This is the pure wisdom of the albino snake of the Omega Symbol for this degree.


Azoth Symbol: A holy man with closed eyes is hovering in the air and gently smiling.


Gentle and patient detachment from the limits of one’s surroundings as a means of allowing spiritual energies to enter into the physical realm.  You thirst for attunement to your spiritual self and in those moment when you find it your whole world takes on a radiant harmony.  It is this that you seek to eventually and completely stabilize within yourself.


Seed Degree: Libra – 15


Young girls harvesting the choicest leaves of green tea. (Omega Symbol). To nurture the forces of nature lovingly, gently and delicately for the purpose of harvesting their magical gifts brings us into attunement with the pure serpent wisdom deep inside us.


Prehistoric paintings on the walls of a vast chamber of a cave. (Chandra Symbol). The magic coin becomes a doorway leading into the deepest chambers of our psyche where we view the ancient and mysterious memories recorded there.


Fulfillment Degree: Leo – 7


The barking of a dog echoes across a moonlit landscape. (Omega Symbol). The albino serpent, guardian of lunar wisdom, dreams in her cave. And her dreams, needing a voice, become the barking of a dog, whose barking resonates in the dreams of all dreamers. It is the vastness of our hidden self calling to us.


A very weak cup of tea. (Chandra Symbol). Seeing ever more clearly the illusory and ephemeral nature of interactions in the outer world we spontaneously find ourselves tuning into the finer and finer essences of things as we draw closer and closer to the limitless absolute – the realm of pure being without qualities.


Omega Oracle


The cave was a refuge from the Sun, a place where one could listen to the voices of stars even when daylight filled the above, a temple consecrated to night.


A sanctum where no flames burned, but where the white snake listened, always, to the moonlight, the thought of moonlight burning in its dark dream. It was only fitting that the keeper of shadows should be white.
