Libra 5. A flagpole with no flag. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Inspired

(Degree Angel: HAHAHEL (HA-ha-HEL) Self-Esteem, Mission)


You cannot align yourself with any one group – you simply will not limit yourself in that way. You are not aggressively, or even openly rebellious, but you are beyond the usual systems that run the world. It causes you to emit a fresh and open vibration that relates to life in a purely direct way, unencumbered by the past.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A man raising a crop of marijuana.” This degree has a wide open, uninhibited way of relating to the world. It doesn’t think in terms of any relationships having set limits, or even consistent formats. It’s attitude is “lets explore it all, as much as we want, as much as is enjoyable, and when the mood strikes us.” It is the diametric opposite of formal, conservative, and stiff. The flagpole doesn’t need a flag to advertise partisanship. We can run any flag of any country we want to run up it at any time, change them at will, or run up the flag pole just some colored, celebrational flags, to let everyone know there’s a party going on and all are invited.

Pleiadian Symbol: Putting his ear to a coffin a man hears the whispering of poems. You thought something was dead and gone, but you listen closely and you find it speaking beautiful things to you.

Azoth Symbol: A man tuning in to the music of the spheres. The music is and always has been playing. This degree can find the station, and the listening attunes him to the music so that he emanates the harmony that has always been there beneath the static of illusion. It is as if the flag pole of the Omega Symbol is actually a tuning fork.

Seed degree: Taurus 25. A holographic computer. (Omega Symbol). Seeing thing in a complete way, we are able to give up our biases and one-sided allegiances.

Bees returning to their hive. (Chandra Symbol). Sensing our deep connection with others gives rise to a desire help them become more aware of their feelings, relax, enjoy life, and to open up to new experiences.

Fulfillment degree: Leo 16. An angel appears to lost travelers and shows them the right direction. (Omega Symbol). Letting go of the need to limit oneself through partisanship opens one to the possibilities of assistance that cosmic entities have to offer.

A red-faced man, tears running down his cheeks. He is laughing convulsively. (Chandra Symbol). Allowing ourselves to relax and to connect more deeply with our feelings gives us the chance to clear out our emotional body so that greater bliss can be experienced.


It wasn’t just a pole stuck in the ground, but a shaft inviting the imagination of flags. Everyone who looked at it saw different flags of different shapes and colors, some simple, some complex, some perisistent, others momentary. It all depended on what they wanted to be under, and what the wind was willing to flutter.
