Libra 12. A man gathering seeds from a white morning glory. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Sensitive

(Degree Angel: MIHAEL (MIH-a-EL) Unity, Fertility, Fruitfulness)


Relationships, like everything else, are subject to entropy – are always winding down and dying away. You have a way of being able to keep relationships going by rekindling them, by finding new ways of relating, new ways of generating connection. It is your dharma to be one who maintains and rebirths relationships in their ever-changing cycles of growth.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “The burning of a bough of sage.” The forces of fire release the healing forces of the earth into the air. The sage smoke purifies the aura and the atmosphere. The morning glories of the Omega Symbol signify waking up, soul enlivenment, and their white color signifies a clearing that makes way for a new beginning.

At worst this degree signifies being caught in stagnating relationships that do not further one or enrich one’s life, because they are stuck in old patterns. The Omega Symbol is not “White morning glories,” but “A man gathering SEEDS from a white morning glory.” The man is preparing for the future growth of the morning glories, just as whoever is burning the bough of sage in the Chandra Symbol is preparing the space receiving the sage smoke for whatever is going to happen next. And so if you want change in your relationships, you must prepare for that change, clear away the old energies which are no longer necessary, so that a space is then made for renewal and a new cycle of growth.

Pleiadian Symbol:Black butterflies emerging from a cave and becoming brilliantly colored as they enter the light.

Azoth Symbol: The Moon Goddess, leaving no footprints, walks across the Moon.

Seed degree: Leo 19. A painting is cleaned, revealing colors of otherworldly beauty. (Omega symbol). Becoming more acutely aware of the beauty of the world around us, we accumulate the power to keep our consciousness turned to the highest and clearest messages from spirit.

A hummingbird feeding at a trumpet vine. (Chandra Symbol). As we keep our world free of negative energies and influences, we can see more and more clearly what it is, specifically, that we need.

Fulfillment degree: Pisces 16. A troll living under a bridge. (Omega Symbol).
When we focus on the highest and purest, we are inevitably confronted with changes we need to make, and those energies which stand in the way of us making them.

A peaceful child on a narrow ledge that overlooks a precipice. (Chandra Symbol).
Dispersing discordant influences sets up a force field of protection around us.


(From the Botanica Obscura of Lucidus:). . . For it is known of the wise that various and sundry wandering spirits and elementals will often come to live in the funnels of morning glories, especially those of the white variety, their blooms providing a kind of haven or refuge, as they are most receptive to and collect a pure and fine energy from the sky, which those that inhabit the flowers find both delectable and nourishing.
