Pisces 5. Dyers at work with many vats of different colors. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Inspired

(Degree Angel: ASALIAH (a-SA-lee-YAH) Global Transformation, Attunement to Divine Order)


This degree likes to work with a wide spectrum of vibrations. It is very imaginative, and wants to bring its inner visions down into physical reality. It is looking to make the world a brighter place and to transmute all negative emotions into their spiritual counterparts, fear becoming faith, anger love, and sadness joy. It seeks to remove the veil of drabness from everyday life to allow the wonder of nature to shine forth.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Thousands of gold nuggets glistening at the bottom of a clear stream.” When you allow emotions to flow forth and be whatever they want to be, letting to of any attachment to them, but without repressing them, they can wash away confusion and disillusion and leave behind the realization of what is truly important and of value. This degree is about allowing cleansing processes to happen. It is also about allowing meaning to emerge from life by joyously going one’s own way spontaneously until all becomes clear.

Pleiadian Symbol: The feeding of the poor at a soup kitchen. Finding where need exists and then fulfilling it. This is what generates the karmic wealth of the Chandra Symbol.

Azoth Symbol: A bridge that has been difficult to build is in its final stages of completion. Triumph over the challenges inherent in making difficult connections, just as the stabilizing of the colors of the rainbow happening in the Omega Symbol is an arduous task – the task of connecting the world or spirit – the colors, to the world of matter – the fabric.

Seed degree: Taurus 30. Beings from many dimensions attracted to an immense white flame. (Omega Symbol). Renewing our connection to spirit we return to the world replete with the possibilities of creative potential.

Snakes at rest on a rock in the Sun. (Chandra Symbol). Having Aligned our wisdom with our spiritual purpose we find we naturally generate great abundance.

Fulfillment degree: Aquarius 28. The entrance to a vast complex of caves beneath a mountain range. (Omega Symbol). Exploring the depths of the material plane we discover a whole rainbow of energies with which to color our world.

A tapestry loom On it is a half finished tapestry. (Chandra Symbol). Realizing how open to creative possibility our world is, we find a whole array of meaning and beauty in all the various directions we might proceed.


The fabrics of Yonara are known for their subtle and vivid colors.  Even when these fabrics fade the colors they take on are as unusual and striking as they were when the fabrics were young.

The dyers of Yonara are extremely secretive concerning their formulas, but it has been reported by those who have secretly observed them at work that they place in their vats the rainwater of far off places, the saliva of wismen, the feathers of rare birds, lumps of gold from a sacred river, wings of fairies, ashes of certain mummies and dew collected under specific astrological influences, as well as stones from the ruins of certain sacred temples, lumps of dung said to be the feces of dragons, tears cried at dawn, strips of parchment on which incantations are written, gemstones (diamonds being often employed), and a wealth of other, sundry and highly curious ingredients.

And although other dyers scoff at these reports (which they deign to be mere rumors and fantastic hyperbole) the wise tell us that colors love to feed on an infinite variety of foodstuffs and that when fed what they crave will wax potent and grow into their greatest power.
