Capricorn 15. An angelologist explains the sacred hierarchies. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Inspired

(Degree Angel: ROCHEL (ro-SHEL) Lost and Found, Restitution)


This degree is aware of how to access the help that the universe makes available to all beings. To receive this help one has to first understand the manner in which it is structured – the limitations and priorities that need to be followed, and the specific ways in which all the different energies work. It is all in the process of finding one’s way toward pure consciousness which is union with God.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A woman wearing a necklace of skulls.” If we only focus on seeking power and denying those fears inside which need to be released this degree will merely perpetuate old karmas until the cycle is worn out. On the other hand, if it can rise above such ego impulses it has a tremendous ability to deeply heal and clear its own being as well as catalyze others to do the same.

The woman wearing the necklace of skulls is the goddess Kali, a dark angel who helps us to befriend all the hidden and lost pieces of ourselves. Until her tests are met, we cannot fully attune to the sacred hierarchies of the Omega Symbol.  The necklace of skulls is the repetition of the continual cycle of birth and death, the angelic hierarchies are the means through which to progressively and eventually transcend this cycle.

The challenge of this degree is to find the right use of its inborn ability to lead – a way that serves the will of the highest, as well as to fuse compassion and forgiveness with its innate potency.

Pleiadian Symbol: Butterflies and flowers appearing magically to comfort convalescents.  Our illnesses and dysfunctions open the possibility of connecting to helping influences that can uplift and evolve us. 

Azoth Symbol: Candlelight glowing on a gold-leafed screen in a dim room.  Amidst darkness we come to perceive the gentle glow of purpose and meaning presenting itself to our consciousness.

Seed degree: 28 Virgo 28. A baby experiments wit h different sounds its mouth can make. (Omega Symbol). Such innocent and direct attempts to give voice to what is within becomes a way of accessing and comprehending the divine.

Autumn leaves pressed in a book. (Chandra Symbol). Whatever we have collected from the past becomes distilled into a body of memories that, if we can enter into its mysteries is found to contain all the wisdom of the universe.

Fulfillment degree: Sagittarius 24. A man in his imagination inventing flowers, the seeds of which magically appear. (Omega Symbol). Comprehending more and more deeply the structures of harmony that pervades the universe we see more and more clearly that the possibilities of creativity are limitless and self-proliferating.

A statue of Isis covered by a transparent veil. (Chandra Symbol). When we overcome the fear of death and realize that it is necessary to the fostering of life, we are able to see through the veil that hides the face of nature.


Timar Azod, Peth’s greatest authority on angels, says that the angelic kingdoms, like fire, manifest in a tremendous array of magnitudes.  And so there are the angels of which we have all heard, such as Metatron, who are so vast that to journey from their head to their foot would take many lifetimes, even if one were to travel at the speed of light.  At the other extreme there are angels being born all the time who are the size of sparks.  These latter angels are born of such things as smiles, or small kind acts, or even a passing thought of love, or the admiration of a flower.

And so all of us have the power to create angels, all of whom are undying, and who follow us throughout our lives, protecting and guiding us, even in the realms that we reach beyond death.
