TITLE: THE APPRECIATION OF PASSING AND EPHEMERAL MANIFESTATIONS OF BEAUTY AND THE SPIRITUAL ESSENCE INHERENT THEREIN
Even in the darkest and most difficult of situations this degree can feel those forces which are ever present and always ready to guide him. This degree might be named “The Glimmer of Hope,” which is something this degree can always find. Although the outer demeanor here may be soft and passive there is a tremendous underlying confidence which can sneak silently in and inspire other people.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Many iris blooming in a wide variety of colors.” Vast beauty is tapped into here, a beauty which is fleeting and evanescent. This degree is highly creative. Its inspirations are elusive – quickly coming and going. The challenge here is to accept this fragile, passing quality and go with that, to faithfully move with the energy when it’s there, and to not try to capture or contain it in the sense of limiting it or regulating its ephemeral nature.
The secret of this degree is that when we let finally and completely accept the truth that all beauty will pass away, we realize also that beauty is continually being reborn, and then we are able to live within beauty as eternal flux.

A statue of Hermes decked with brightly colored garlands. (Chandra Symbol). Imbuing all our communication with love calls forth from us a spontaneous manifestation of joy and beauty.
It is said by the wise that stars, which carry such potent and endlessly diverse wisdom, will sometimes enter the bodies of small beings such as insects or small animals so as to transmit their energies to humans in a form that is easier to receive, and that often when a particular star
wishes to impart its influence to a certain human it will seek out that person through such a living form, so that its powers may be assimilated by that person subtly, and without the disturbing influence of conscious knowledge.
