Capricorn 23. While their bodies sleep, a group of people meet on the astral plane. (Omega Symbol (Nadir)) Interacting/Receptive

(Degree Angel: MAHASIAH (mah-HA-see-YAH) Healing, Rectification)


This degree deeply senses that the outer reality is an illusion that hides the true nature of things. It can feel intuitively what is really going on, and even if it is not consciously aware of its powerful psychic ability, it seems, always to be able to sense the truth of what is happening and of how energies are interacting with each other. It has a deep desire to communion with others, and to access the web of connections that unite us all.

The Chandra symbol (Descendant) for his degree is “An old priest using oil to anoint a carved lingam.” We are embodied in the physical and we are built for action. To embrace this fully is to encourage the flow of activity and impulse, to invite creativity. The stone is hard, but the oil is soft, meaning that sexual energy may be at times expressed only as a base and selfish force, but may also be elevated into a way of loving and giving. This degree is about the wise self working with the sexual energy, so that it is guided into evolutionary and life-supporting manifestations. It is then that the people of the Omega Symbol can gain the maximum sustenance from their meetings.

Pleiadian Symbol (Ascendant): A medal struck to commemorate an historical event.

Azoth Symbol (Midheaven): All sorts of flora and fauna spawning in spring.

The life force proliferating in an array of different forms when the right conditions are present.

Seed degree: 4 Capricorn 4. As a cliff erodes, a temple is in danger of collapsing. (Omega Symbol). Unstable conditions, even though they may inspire fear, can also open us up to new levels of experience and new ways of communicating.

Footprints in the snow. (Chandra Symbol). Realizing that everything we do leaves its trace we are inspired to become assertive and proactive so as to create a path for the Spiritual Light to enter the world.

Fulfillment degree: Leo 25. A woman incessantly eating pills. (Omega Symbol). If we can truly take in what we need at all times we develop the power to reach beyond time and space so as to unite with spirits of like mind. On the other hand if we keep trying to get something which we feel we never get, our inner self will find other and alternative ways of getting it.

A circle of neat houses, each one identical. (Chandra Symbol). Affirming the potency of our creative power, we then find a vehicle for it, often something that fits in easily to the world, so that we can work our magic in secret and the world may receive its benefits without creating undue fear.


At night the soul sees in the dark and feels along the threads that connect it to many others.  These threads are like the lines that depict roads on a map.  Souls follow these lines to each other, gathering the way mist gathers into dewdrops.

I came to an ancient abandoned city high in the mountains where a swift brook flowed through the rocks amidst a green meadow.  Here wandered naked people, some in groups, some alone, who talked or who held hands silently.  Some sat under trees and studied strange documents together while others sought the privacy of a ruined temple to share a secret communion.

And I knew there were many other meeting places like this one, yet different in an endless variety of ways, places that are born and which die, generated according to the desires of the souls who inhabit them.

In this particular place, freed from time, souls give and take, merging with each other in a never-ending afternoon.

Waking in the morning some remember, others not at all, some feeling only a vague inexpressible residue of their encounters.

Those who remember most yearn to revisit these places, but although all are destined to know them consciously and remember them clearly, few have yet come to realize they are forever and always there.
