* Taurus-28


Degree Angel: Yeialel (YAY-a-LEL) Letting Go, Mental Force, Transforming/Receptive




Omega Symbol: A man channeling a set of degree symbols.


You intuitively understand how energy works, and perceive overall patterns in life in all their complexity. You may find it difficult, though, to enter directly into experience, for you often can’t decide where or how to jump in. You need to learn how to put aside thought and act spontaneously – even if it means at times stumbling or falling.


Pleiadian Symbol: A nude youth handing a rose to a vestal virgin.


Innocent and direct love expressed toward anything which maintains and protects the spiritual flame. A simple and vulnerable expression of affection which honors the spiritual essence of the other person.


Chandra Symbol: A man making candles out of beeswax.


The candles spread light, just as the degree symbols spread knowledge. Each candle might be different and unique, just as each degree symbol is. What is of value (Taurus) is light and understanding, and just as candles burn away and more are needed, new symbols reveal new truths. And so this degree serves something that is eternal and beyond time – wisdom as a manifestation of spiritual light – and through candle making serves that manifestation of spiritual light as it becomes physical light in the material world. There can be much patience here. The degree feels fulfillment when it finds a meaningful goal to focus on and to which it can steadily and faithfully apply its talents.


Azoth Symbol: A ritual gathering to celebrate the completion of a gigantic labyrinth.


Acknowledging and appreciating the meaning and purpose behind complexity.  You celebrate with others the elaborate twists and turns of life, and encourage others to move through unknowing and confusion with grace and ease, keeping always in mind that any and every event and challenge, as well as every seeming dead end and false turn is carefully and perfectly placed in their path as just the right learning experience they uniquely need to further their own evolution.


Seed Degree: Aquarius – 26


The sound of the ocean kept in a small box. (Omega Symbol). Sensing the vastness contained in the smallest of things, we perceive that all reality is filled with a meaningful play of symbols.


Dragonflies around a stagnant pool. (Chandra Symbol). Perceiving the darkness and decay of the world, and yet being able to lightly hover above it, we are impelled to find ways to share the light with others.


Fulfillment Degree: Capricorn – 5


A photographer hand-coloring a landscape. (Omega Symbol). The degree symbols bring new colors to the world, so that we are able to free our imagination to see existence in new ways.


Tall dark cypress trees in a cemetery. (Chandra Symbol). Illuminating the darkness the light makes us aware of a more deeply enduring spiritual knowledge whose roots are deep in the earth and whose branches reach to heaven.


Omega Oracle


Doors, portals, and passageways of all sorts were opening, like flowers in a spring garden. He strolled through worlds that passed like clouds, and the worlds echoed each other, creating memories that condensed dewdrops out of the mist – crystalline eyes, looking with surprise on these places that ever renewed themselves in unexpected ways. And amongst these worlds he found many homes which he loved to return to for a moment, but then soon was compelled to leave, for the vacuum of the dark unknown sucked him onward.
