Aquarius 7. Someone turns back and looks again: the mountain has disappeared. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Sensitive

(Degree Angel: LEUVIAH (LOO-vee-YAH) Dialing God, Growing Intelligence/Coming to Completion)


What has seemed so difficult and insurmountable can suddenly vanish. It depends on whether we need it or not, and when we decide we don’t, we become free of it. Even the most deeply entrenched beliefs and ways of being are capable of being changed, when we are truly ready to let go of them. It all depends on focus and belief.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A woman burning a book on black magic.” Here is an attempt to protect others from negativity by attempting to deny or ignore it. This degree has strong attitudes concerning what is wrong and right. One of the best results of this is that it provokes others to consider more deeply such moral questions. In the end, though, must come the realization that even negativity can be a tool for evolution.

Pleiadian Symbol: A baby dragon pecks its way out of an egg. The urge to fully embrace and own one’s power.

Azoth Symbol: As they descend, mountain streams are finding each other. Merging one’s flow with the flow of others.

Seed degree: Gemini 23. A man attuning to the vibrations of a myriad of different flowers. (Omega Symbol). Realizing how easy the access is to all the forces of the universe, the domination of materiality and its obstructions disappears.

A tunnel created by trees. (Chandra Symbol). Sensing how we are sheltered as we travel our path, we wish to shelter others.

Fulfillment degree: Libra 26.Down the side of a mountain, a stream cascading for hundreds of feet. (Omega Symbol). Letting to of our urge to ascend to the heights we come to realize the joy and value of falling.

A Gypsy cart with a campfire nearby. (Chandra Symbol). After becoming caught in the midst of conflicting concepts and abstractions we come home to something simple and warm.


Mount Recondita is one of the most famous places in Peth.  But it is a  place that moves — that appears and disappears.  Mostly it is seen at dawn or dusk in the distance, and if a group of people are together not everyone may see it — maybe all the group will see it, or just one person.  It is a stunning vision — its lower slopes covered with emerald forests and its heights shrouded in the whitest snow, from which descend waterfalls falling hundreds of feet.

Very infrequently Mount Recondita will appear close up — one may turn around and find oneself at its base.  And if one is quick and unhesitating one may rush into its forests, never to return or be seen by anyone again.  This is to be desired, as Recondita is the mountain of bliss.

And how do I know this, for it is certainly not from ever having encountered a person who has taken refuge there.  I know it because I am Serapis, a seer of visions, and I have witnessed it with my own inner eye.
