Virgo 24. A satyr sleeping standing up. Roots are growing from his hooves into the ground. (Omega Symbol)Interacting/Responsible

(Degree Angel: OMAEL (O-ma-EL) Building Bridges, Fertility, Multiplicity
Defeats frustration, despair and depression)


You have the ability to always be in touch with the earth, with practicality, with what is. You also have the power of feeling at home wherever you are, and of using any and all situations for personal sustainment and learning. You are tremendously patient, and will do whatever it takes to accomplish your tasks, no matter how long this may take or how complicated the road may become.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A silver trident.” Here is combined the trident, which is the symbol for the planet Neptune, and the metal of the moon, which is silver. This degree has to do with the refining and perfecting of the intuition, and also the ability to nurture and serve an ideal. There is a conflict here between Virgo’s desire to be accurate, clear and precise, versus the need to listen to emotions, instincts, and the psychic self. These two sides of one’s being can seem to be at war with each other, but it is through their interaction that both sides are empowered.

This degree always wants to go deeper into the meaning of existence, just as the roots on the bottom of the satyr’s foot are growing deep into the ground. It will analyze something from every angle possible, it will get into finer and finer details of whatever it is dealing with. It may discover new things that have never been found or considered before. But ultimately it always need to realize that the intellectual mind is just a tool, and that its rightful place is as a tool to serve a reality greater than itself, and which can only be merged with, rather than ever completely objectified.

Pleiadian Symbol: A little girl hugging a puppy.

Azoth Symbol: A feeling of deep connection among a small group of friends.

Seed degree: Capricorn 12. Mold growing on a diamond. (Omega Symbol). When we give up the idea that we are in any way imperfect, we are able to accept the world around us and take in the nourishment and secrets it has to offer.

A beautiful, erotic fat woman eating chocolates. (Chandra Symbol). Binging and excess will always lead to a rejection of those states, and a coming into a consciousness of refinement and clarity.

Fulfillment degree: Virgo 15. A man wearing paper wings jumps off a cliff and soars through the sky. (Omega Symbol). When you can allow yourself to connect deeply with the earth and with physical reality, you are then able to explore the realm of ideas and thinking without getting lost or crashing back to reality.

A man inherits a vast fortune. (Chandra Symbol). Deeply connecting with our own psychic powers, we realize what endless potentials they hold, which creates in us a desire, eventually, to use them to advance both ourselves and others.


One of the most gratifying aspects of being a satyr is this tendency to turn into a tree during the night. Sometimes in dreams his arms raised and multiplied, sprouting leaves and attracting birds who built nests. In the morning it was always thoughts of roaming that shrunk the roots and smoothed, once again, his skin.
