Libra 17. The unwrapping of a mummy. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Sensitive

(Degree Angel: NANAEL (NA-na-El) No Agenda, Spiritual Communication)


What has been long closed can be re-opened by this degree. What has been hidden can be revealed. It is always possible to penetrate the surface and go deeper. The result can be a new perspective on the past, which can give one a deeper perspective on present situations. To do this, though, may require the overcoming of taboos, as well as a slow, gradual approach.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A very bored woman who is listening but falling asleep.” Consciousness is like the wrappings of the mummy – it contains and confines the dream self. Dreams have a life of their own, and are intent on living it, and when any focus we try to maintain is too denying of dreams, they eventually blur the edges, loosen the moorings and undermine our logic and objectivity so that they may find room in which to grow and unfold.

This degree is about automatically and instinctively moving toward those places here what was lost and what needs to be healed and reintegrated into the self is waiting for redemption. All relationships have a way of magnetizing to themselves what they need for the sake of evolution, and this degree has an instinctive knowing of how to give in to this.

Pleiadian Symbol: A man who has the ability to transfer information simply by touching someone.Communication through the power of direct and profound contact freed from explanation. Direct transmission of essence. The boredom of the woman of the Chandra Symbol can lead to this immediate transference of information.

Azoth Symbol: A woman guiding someone else through the realms of dream. Adroit navigating in the emotional realm by distinguishing between truth and illusion and by being able to understanding the meaning inherent in the inventions of the imagination.

Seed degree: Libra 19. An innovative dancer performing a strange ballet. (Omega Symbol). Allowing the self to move freely uncovers that which is hidden in the self.

Young boys picking and eating cherries off a tree. (Chandra Symbol). The joy of living leads us to reject those involvements which hold no real interest for us.

Fulfillment degree: Leo 17. A giant squid sleeping in the ocean depths. (Omega Symbol). Uncovering that which is hidden in ourselves leads to the deep realization of how very unique we are.

Elegant black women sitting on a porch and fanning themselves (Omega Symbol). The rejection of meaningless and uninteresting experience assists us in uncovering our own unique beauty.


Someone turns over in her sleep, feeling her lifetime of long ago as halfway around the world they unwrap the one that was her.

We’ve left bodies everywhere, most of them only a skull or a bone now, or a speck of dust the wind blows in our face.

But this body was special. They had prepared it to live through eternity. In her sleep she sighs for her former self, and it, well, it is smiling, and has been for a long time.
