TITLE: INTENSE CONCENTRATION ON ONE’S OWN AGENDAS or FINDING WITHIN THAT WHICH ONE CANNOT FIND WITHOUT
You are not about to allow anything to stand in your way. No matter how chaotic life becomes, and no matter what crises may arise, you are able to follow through on your agendas and hold to your center. When enough is enough, though, and its time to change or shift focus, you have the ability to do this as well.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Giant cacti blooming in the desert.” Just as the man of the Omega Symbol refuses to have his reading interrupted by the fire which has broken out in the library, the cacti will not allow their desire to bloom be stopped by their harsh environment. This degree has the ability to thrive and blossom in harsh conditions and/or unsupportive environments. It will find what it needs, figure out a way to sustain itself, learn what it is driven to learn, and bring forth its own unique wisdom, even if this takes some time. This degree is about the deep and thorough assimilation of specifically required wisdom that eventually allows the self to know and be who it is.
Pleiadian Symbol: A sinuous woman in black who is an adept in cat magic. Creative expression of the energies of one’s primal self.
Azoth Symbol: An alchemist in a cave digging out a shining black vein of hematite. The seeking of hidden sources of power within the self.
Seed degree: Sagittarius 30. By time traveling a man takes a photograph of dinosaurs. (Omega Symbol). When we can tap deeply into the past we lose our sense of urgency, for we become aware that the reaching of our goals is inevitable, and that, on a deeper level, we are already there.
The completion of a large Persian rug. (Chandra Symbol). When we come to the end of anything, we realize that the completion always constitutes a flowering of some sort, and is an affirmation of life.
Fulfillment degree: Leo 15. An ancient text, long kept secret, is revealed to the public. (Omega Symbol). Maintaining our focus and learning to be undisturbed by seeming crises, we are able to foster great revelations.
A woman with many different colored rings on her fingers. (Chandra Symbol). When we set our mind on thriving, even in the most difficult of situations, we draw to ourselves those energies which will enhance and strengthen our life force.
Out of the corners of his eyes he saw the flames, and could smell the smoke, and hear the distant sirens. But he was reading “The Complete History of Waterfalls,” wouldn’t that protect him?
