Degree Angel: ALADIAH (a-LA-dee-YAH) Looks Can Kill: Protection from the Evil Eye, Divine Grace, Interacting/Sensitive
TITLE: THE NEED TO ACCEPT SITUATIONS OPEN-MINDEDLY, AND FREED FROM ALL JUDGMENTS, TO MAKE THE BEST OF WHAT IS or THE AWARENESS OF WHAT IS LACKING AND THE WILLINGNESS TO COMPENSATE FOR IT
Omega Symbol: A painting that, once it is seen, cannot be remembered.
You’re always ready to start over again, if you have to. You are able to overcome the preconditioning of the past and to look at situations once again with a fresh and unclouded vision. Other people as well as the world itself are continually attempting to compel other people how to be and act. It is your challenge to not allow these projections to subdue the expression of who you really are.
Pleiadian Symbol: Humans and many types of animals carrying out an elaborate dance.
Interacting dynamically and joyously with the wholeness of life and inducing others to join in with one. Creative rapport between all the various aspects of self.
Chandra Symbol: A young girl is sold to a sultan.
This is one of the most obviously negative of all the symbols. This does not mean that this degree is any more positive or negative in its potential than any of the others. Whenever we come across one of these negative images it represents a caution, and means that the person with this degree in their chart is aware of the brand of negativity depicted by the symbol – in this case the potential for people to be supremely selfish in their attempt to dominate others and treat them like objects. How Todd Akin And Paul Ryan Partnered To Redefine Rape Earlier today, Missouri U.S. Senate candidate Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) claimed that “legitimate rape” does not often lead to pregnancy because “the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing. . . This degree is very aware of the coercive and dehumanizing elements in society, and the way that other people often take these elements for granted and as an accepted way of life. It seeks to overcome this tendency, as well as help other people to overcome it too. And, like the painting that can’t be remembered in the Omega Symbol, we need to continually be returning to and looking again at this situation and keep reminding ourselves that it exists and what it looks like if we are ever to change it.
Azoth Symbol: In a darkened room people wait silently and expectantly for a medium to speak.
You’re open to messages coming from spiritual realms, and your expectancy that those messages will be delivered tends to draw them to you. You have as well an ability to evoke that same feeling of receptivity and openness in other people. You’re highly aware of how atmosphere and setting affects communication, and are adept at finding ways to use these to enhance your rapport with other people.
Seed Degree: Sagittarius – 15
Prized possessions are disappearing, one by one. (Omega Symbol). Letting go of and losing whatever we have helps us to continually see everything in a new way.
A tidal wave approaching. (Chandra Symbol). Experiencing profound inner changes that sweep away the structures by which we have always lived help us to see more clearly the needs of other people and to overcome our own selfishness.
Fulfillment Degree: Capricorn – 7
A guidebook to an ancient city. (Omega Symbol). In an attempt to understand more deeply that which we have trouble taking in, we are led to explore the past in a more clear, detailed and profound manner.
A satyr gazing at his reflection in a pond. (Chandra Symbol). To comprehend and overcome the selfish aspects of ourselves and the power struggles we find ourselves in, we look more deeply into our own animal nature, so that it may be recognized for what it is and integrated more harmoniously into our being.
There is, supposedly, a painting in the Museum of Peth that is incapable of being remembered. I wrote down the name of it, “Seekers at Twilight,” and searched for it in the museum archives, but found nothing. Nor has any art historian written of it -how could they? They don’t remember it.
I would describe the painting to you, but as I have forgotten what it looks like, I can’t. This is a painting deeply shrouded in its own secret. All I can tell you, though, is that whoever has seen it remembers it as being of exquisite beauty, breathtaking in fact. But although they vow to go back and look at it again, no one ever does, until, wandering the galleries of the museum they happen to come upon it again.
