Libra 3. A painting upside-down in a museum. No one notices the mistake. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Receptive

(Degree Angel: REHAEL (RAY-ha-EL) Diamond in the Rough, Filial Submission)


You see things always in a way that is new and different from the norm. Somehow the usual assumptions and biases that most people take for granted just don’t stick to you. This is a wonderful quality, and can manifest as great insight. Do not allow the negative reactions of others to cause you to doubt what you have to give.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “An inaccurate, imaginative map of the world.” When there’s something you don’t know you can always make it up, and through doing this can access what’s inside you by a process of projecting it on the outside world. The challenge here is to not get reality confused with one’s speculations. As more information comes in the map can always be modified toward a more accurate and detailed picture. There is a great value, though, in speculation before facts are known, for it stimulates further exploration, which is something this degree very much loves to do.

Pleiadian Symbol: The Sun rises into a parallel universe. Meaning and purpose intensified to such an extent that it creates a complete transformation in the world, and/or one’s perception of it.

Azoth Symbol: On an altar a bowl full of darkness and a bowl full of light.  An all-inclusive receptivity that is open to experiencing the energetic interplay between dualities.

Seed degree: Taurus 1. To cleanse them, crystals are placed in a stream. (Omega Symbol). Through uniting with the present we come into greater clarity, which gives us a new perspective on everything.

A red garnet ring. The garnets glow. (Chandra Symbol). Eagerness to live and to grow impels us to project our imagination onto the territory that lays before us.

Fulfillment degree: Gemini 16. A man is projecting numbers at someone for the purpose of healing that person. (Omega Symbol). Freed from the usual way of looking at things we are able to tap into the realm of pure vibration and explore its possbilities.

A single sunflower wilting and dropping its seeds. (Chandra Symbol). The products of the imagination either grow into something, or serve to fertilize future cycles of growth.


(This actually happened. It was at the Chicago Art Institute. The painter is Edwin Dickinson  The name of the painting is “The Fossil Hunters”).
Two people, laying on a bed, each facing the other’s feet. Spectators viewed them from above.

Even short dreams can change one into a fossil, making the night last millions of years, which, in the long run can provide a far sounder sleep.
Vaguely sensing their reversal they assumed the crust of the earth had only trembled a little in its own slumber.

Such slight interruptions only serve to intensify comfort.
