Aries 21. A woman drying flowers and carefully preserving their colors. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Experimental

(Degree Angel: NELCHAEL (NEL-ka-EL) Eradicate Plague, Ardent Desire to Learn)


You hold on to all that is beautiful in life. Your stamina and high-mindedness help you to survive in even the most difficult of situations. You are intent on magnifying the good and looking beyond the discord and negativity of life. Your very essence is an encouragement to others, for it lights the way through difficult times.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Pastel flags fluttering in the breeze.” Both symbols pertain to uplifting the soul, the wind carrying the prayers and blessings of the flags to those who need hope, and the woman preserving the memory of the flowers so that we may remember there are more flowers to come, new cycles of life to arise.

Pleiadian Symbol: A mysterious piece of unusual color and shape appearing on a chess board.  A surprising opening up of the limits of any game, just as the flowers of the Omega Symbol are carried beyond their seeming limits.

Azoth Symbol: A pirate hands a woman a large gold coin.  Openness to receiving gifts from unexpected sources.

Seed degree: Sagittarius 1. A woman who writes so much in her diary she has no time for anything else. (Omega Symbol). Realization of the potential depths and multifacetedness of experience naturally results in the desire to proliferate what is beautiful and spiritually enriching.

A woman, manacled in solid gold chains. (Chandra Symbol). Perceiving the meaning and value of what confines us, we become like the wind, carrying the colors of hope to others.

Fulfillment degree: Sagittarius 2. Waking at night, a man sees a firefly in the darkness of his bedroom. (Omega Symbol). Working to hold on to what is beautiful, we come into a greater appreciation of the ephemeral.

Many iris blooming in a wide variety of colors. (Chandra Symbol). The joys of the mind substantiate into the beautiful manifestations of our creativity.


In past lives she had been skilled in the art of mummification. Mummifying flowers was much more difficult, for colors preferred to inhabit living flesh, rather than a lifeless tomb. She performed her work by talking to the colors – by telling them of future eyes to which they would bring joy, and future imaginations, which they would brighten.

For the sake of joy and imagination the colors decided to stay, at least for awhile.

Azoth Oracle

Piers Alzan, notorious pirate had come by a gold coin which was said to be a part of a great treasure, which he sought for many years but never found.  He gave it to his love, the Lady Taria Tsarkhan, who, fearing the wrath of her husband fled to the far north.  It was in a village on the shores of the Caladan Sea that  she found herself overwhelmed by a strange, persistent obsession to board a boat headed for the Northern Wastes.

Finding a ship to take her there she arrived on the desolate shore she was abandoned in the icy wastes. It was here that a most marvelous event occurred: The coin began to glow white hot, and rising into the air became like a little sun, and for a several miles around her, which stretched to the nearest mountains, the ice melted, and all manner of grasses, herbs flowers and fruit-bearing trees sprang forth from the land, along with birds and deer and streams full of fish, creating a miniature paradise.

Her lover, Alzan, knowing of the coins secret power came within a few days to where she was, and the two of them lived in contentment and bliss in their secret retreat, which the wise say is yet concealed somewhere in the Northern Wastes, though sailors have never found it.
