Scorpio 14. A white marble foot glows pink as it turns into flesh. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Responsible

(Degree Angel: CAHETEL (KA-heh-TEL) Defusing Negative Energy, Divine Blessings)


Understanding is only cold and impersonal when it is fueled by fear. When it is combined with the heat of love it comes alive, is released from its limits, and is renewed. This degree is about waking up, and waking others up, especially waking them to what they already know but have forgotten, and waking them to their connection with the whole universe.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Women dressed in black. They are wailing and mourning.” The fact that there is more than one woman in the symbol signifies the giving and receiving of support in the process of mourning. If this process is deeply and fully engaged in it will lead to the rebirth signified by the Omega Symbol of this degree. What is of critical importance to realize here is that if the act of mourning is not deep and full enough it might must become a habit, a place where one becomes stuck. Completely submerging oneself in the act of mourning, though, as signified by the fact that the woman are clothed in black, is what will cause one to be able to release it and move on to renewal, as signified by the “rope going up into the sky” of the fulfillment degree.

Pleiadian Symbol: A sacred runner carrying a message to the mountains. The arduous task of being a go-between when making connections are difficult.  The perceiving of higher meaning at the root of all communication.

Azoth Symbol: An astrologer looking for a major conjunction of planets.  Sensitivity to the timing within cycles of openness and renewal.

Seed degree: Virgo 14. A collection of diamonds of many different colors. (Omega Symbol). Being able to turn any energy into something positively has a deeply enlivening effect on whatever one creates.

A long steel screw. (Chandra Symbol). Strong and deep attachments eventually lead to mourning until they are released.

Fulfillment degree: Scorpio 19. An angel kisses a man while he sleeps. (Omega Symbol). When we soften our consciousness so that we may perceive that everything is alive, we are visited by and receive the love of the angels.

A rope going up into the sky. (Chandra Symbol). When we share our grief wit others in a complete way, we lighten ourselves so much and create such a connection with the divine that we are able to rise above the heaviness of the physical world.


Hindar’s famous Sculpture “The Dryad of Menum” was a portrait of Enard Travaal’s love, Deralia, who had died tragically, struck down by a meteor. Every year many come to witness in the Museum of Peth the foot of the statue turning pink on the anniversary of Deralia’s death as it comes to life, often the toes wiggling and stretching before the foot one’s again turns back into marble.

The Historian Renad Fazar has pointed out that in Travaal’s diaries he mentions that in his palace this statue was displayed on a high pedestal, and that frequently Travaal would kiss the foot of it, his love, Fazar supposes, accumulating there and over time imbuing the statue with a faint life.
