Virgo 26. Under the full moon, a sagging balcony. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Experimental
(Degree Angel: VASARIAH (va-SAH-ree-Yah) Memories, Clemency and Equilibrium)
TITLE: THE ASSESSMENT OF BOTH THE POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE ASPECTS THAT ONE HAS ACCUMULATED, or THE REALIZATION OF WHERE SUPPORT IS LACKING AND THE ABILITY TO INSTINCTIVELY TUNE IN TO WHY IT IS LACKING.
You are aware, both in yourself and others, of a great accumulation of feeling that has happened over time, as well as the need to unburden ourselves from this. We all need to explore the hidden parts of ourselves, but we can’t do this all at once – it would be too overwhelming. And so you know how to proceed gradually, and if you keep in tune with your instinct it can tell you how to do this.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “An old man counting gold coins.” Gold is the metal of the Sun, and, of course, each coin is shaped like the Sun. The sun signifies meaning and purpose, and here we find many meanings, many purposes, which add up to a richness, a wealth, an abundance – which goes beyond the singular meaning and purpose of our own Sun, which is just one among billions of other Suns.
So much may be accomplished with all this meaning and purpose. The goal here is to be aware of it all, to be aware of the wealth that we may draw on, and to help others to be aware of it. This degree can be very adept at healing poverty consciousness. It is interesting that the Omega Symbol of this degree alludes to the planet which is the polar opposite of the Sun – the Moon – and that the Omega Symbol alludes to poverty and lack of support. The balcony wants to lift us up, but it has become weakened by time and the elements. Emotional fulfillment, though – as symbolized by the full Moon – is possible, if we can become aware of the weakness of our supports and know how to rebuild and strengthen them – and this degree does.
Pleiadian Symbol: A worshiper lighting sandalwood incense in a temple dedicated to Ganesh. Focusing on, honoring, and supporting the possibility for the removal of all blockages. Fostering harmony by expecting it.
Azoth Symbol: People carrying bundles of kindling from a forest. The active process of finding and obtaining fuel for one’s creative fires.
Seed degree: Aquarius 6. Seeing a stone lion in a museum a young girl asks her parents if they are in the zoo. (Omega Symbol). The girl senses aliveness in this seemingly non-living museum object. Her instincts tell her the truth – everything is alive, and when we realize this we become capable of seeing what in us needs support and repair, which we can accomplish if we act on our inner sensings.
A gardener with just one leg. (Chandra Symbol). Lack and difficulty can lead us to deeper and deeper realizations of all that we have.
Fulfillment degree: Scorpio 15. Intently and faithfully a man observes his own breath. (Omega Symbol). Freeing ourselves of the heaviness of the past and its oppressive memories we guide our consciousness always back to the present moment, which is the source of all healing.
A woman with a gold tooth. (Chandra Symbol). Clearly assessing what we have we eventually go beyond the satisfaction of mere ownership and find ways of using it to restore our power in a real way.
She peered out the door at the balcony, yearning to step onto it and enter the moonlight. She knew, though, that it could not support her, at least not until she had passed from this world and could then view the moon from it as a spirit, divested of her shadow’s heaviness.
