Aquarius 27. Love steadies a man’s irregular heartbeat. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Sensitive

(Degree Angel: REHAEL (RAY-ha-EL) Diamond in the Rough, Filial Submission)


Our connections with ourselves and our reality are going through continual subtle adjustments, and this degree is acutely aware of all kinds of disharmonies that arise. It is also aware that the most effective way to realign these disharmonies is through turning one’s attention to feeling the love that is always there. And though it may not realize it’s doing this, this is the magic way it brings harmony to many different situations.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A man laying stones for a path” This degree may take great pains to do something, because it knows that once certain tasks are completed, the foundation is laid for greater ease and smoothness of functioning in the future.

It shows the way, even though the way may be difficult. It is intent on exploring new areas of life and of helping others to experience ideas and places that may have hitherto been hidden or in some other ways difficult of access. The building of these paths, is, as expressed in the corresponding Omega Symbol, an act of love that strengthens the heart of both the giver and the receiver.

Pleiadian Symbol: During a tea ceremony a man briskly mixing tea with a whisk. He’s trying to get the tea to dissolve in the water, to blend the tea into the water so that an even solution results, one that can be easily ingested. This is the merging of earth and water, the full blending of the emotional with the physical, that is, the union of our intuition with the substantial world around us. Neurosis is the schism between the physical reality in which we find ourselves and our inner, emotional world. When the two become harmonized with each other, we lay the stones of the Chandra symbol as an evolutionary path forward.

Azoth Symbol: Blank paper waiting to receive ideas. Openness to be written upon. A receptivity to any forms, any words or shapes that may desire to appear. This mirrors the man of the Omega Symbol’s receptivity to love. The paper manifests a perfect supportiveness.

Seed degree: Aquarius 23.In a catacomb, a room decorated with hundreds of skulls and bones. (Omega Symbol). Sensing how our connectedness with each other transcends all changes wrought by time, we realize the love we share and are vitalized by it.

Ancient runes carved at random on gray rocks. (Chandra Symbol). Perceiving many different thoughts and ideas, we attempt to synthesize them into meaningful patterns so we can make our way forward.

Fulfillment degree: Gemini 28. A house which keeps growing bigger and bigger. (Omega Symbol). Attuning to love we become increasingly aware of the vastness of our inner self.

A cloud in the shape of a rabbit. (Chandra Symbol). The clarity and definiteness of the Chandra Symbol’s path gives us a context from which we can view the vaguer and subtler aspects of reality without losing our way.


To the north of Aab in the land of Nevara there blows a wind in autumn which the wise use as an herb to heal the inability to love.  Those whose life is without love are advised by the alchemists of Aab to travel to Nevara and, at the proper time of the year, to breathe for three days the air that blows down from the mountains through the forests.

This air is said to lodge in the heart where it creates palpitations — not the common ones whose irregularities are random, but ones whose rhythm carries messages that the heart is said to hunger after and which it ingests like a precious food.

After a matter of a few days these palpitations subside, and when these sufferers from love lack return to their homes it is soon after that they invariably encounter  as if by coincidence the love of their life.

Of course many come here seeking, but the winds’ power seems to have no effect on those who suffer romantic addiction, or who have the power of finding love on their own.

Serapis says that the winds are like a grain of sand which enter the heart’s oyster, therein creating a most beauteous and invisible pearl, which, to be appreciated must be given.
