Scorpio 21: The wind whirling thousands of loose manuscript pages. (Omega Symbol)Interacting/Experimental
(Degree Angel: HARIEL (HA-ree-EL) Long-Range Vision, Purification)


Chaos can rewrite reality, and sometimes that is a good thing. This degree knows when to let chaos have its due. We think that things need to be prioritized in a certain way – that’s our story. But when the plot of our story get ripped apart and re-ordered, a new story can emerge, which reveals new and unsuspected aspects of the self.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A pair of glasses with no lenses in them.” This degree is about seeing directly, although, as the lens-less glasses show, it’s not that simple. Because the lenses are missing the focus here is on the frames and not on what we’re seeing, and the fact of the matter is that it is how we frame things that determines what we see. And the more we look beyond the transparent lenses which are distorting what we’re seeing – often without us even knowing it – the closer we will come to seeing the truth.

By shuffling all the pages, the wind in the Omega Symbol allows us to see the manuscript in a new way, a way that does not follow the usual sequence of cause and effect – a way that may seem fragmented, but which allows us to put it together in new ways. This degree is about being aware of how we limit what we see, and through a renewal of our looking finding new ways of seeing and thereby learning more about what we’re looking at than we ever thought we could.

Pleiadian Symbol: An Egyptian pharaoh wanders into New York City. Crossing boundaries into unknown territory, and to be free of expectations when doing so.

Azoth Symbol: Small animals searching the forest for food.  The desire to connect with nature for the purpose of finding nourishment, and this engaged in as a group effort.  Awareness of immediate need.

Seed degree: Sagittarius 8. Experts arguing over the authenticity of a painting. (Omega Symbol). Debating over the nature of reality leads eventually to the realization of alternate possibilities and the potentially freeing nature of chaos.

The harsh landscape of the moon with a black sky. The earth is not visible. (Chandra Symbol). To explore the most hidden areas of the subconscious leads to a realization of the limitations we place on all experience, and a desire to free ourselves from their strictures.

Fulfillment degree: Gemini 20. Night in the museum, shadows seem to be moving in the paintings. (Omega Symbol). When we allow our mind the freedom to freely invent we see all sorts of possibilities in those things which we formerly thought unchangeable.

A bull stung by a scorpion. (Chandra Symbol). When we become aware of the limitations we place on our experience, our dogmatic mind-set is pierced by the force of creativity and transformation and hence opens up into a myriad of new realizations.


Taras Bahir, mystic of Aab had worked for many years channelling a book which, once finished, he found to be incomprehensible. On his way to the tower of Serapis where he hoped to show the manuscript to the old alchemist who was notoriously clever at solving mysteries, he was assailed by a wind which tore the manuscript from him and scattered it through the forest. Carefully he retrieved it, page by page, over 2000 of them.

When he finally arrived that night at the abode of Serapis it was found that the pages were now in an order which clearly detailed several centuries of the ancient Aabian history which had formerly been unknown to historians.
