Pisces 7. An open-air library, the books magically impervious to the elements. (Omega Symbol) interacting/sensitive
(Degree Angel: VEHUEL (Vay-hoo-EL) Happiness, Exaltation, Sublimity)
TITLE: CONFIDENCE IN SPIRITUAL KNOWING
This degree feels an inner spiritual certainty that cannot be shaken, broken, or worn away. It never forgets the truth it knows, and knows that anything one truly has can ever be taken away. It feels in its heart that knowledge is not something that is every really lost, but something that eternally is – beyond time. The light of truth impervious to all shadow and darkness its its reality.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A candle burning. There is a ring of salt around it on the floor.” The candle, like the library of the Omega Symbol, is protected, in this case from discord and any dimming of its light. This degree is extreme in its ability to hold on to a focus and/or a sense of purpose, and to ward off anything that might attempt to disturb, frustrate or negate that purpose. It deeply understands that truth is ultimately incapable of corruption, and that even though its manifestations may change, truth itself is a light to be tuned in to and rekindled with each new beholding of it.
Such a steady symbol may seem strange for a degree which is Kabbalistically ruled by Gemini – a very flexible, wavering sign. The message is, that to communicate (Gemini) the faith of Pisces requires this clarity of focus and dedication to the light.
Pleiadian Symbol: Fragments of an antique colossus lying on a beach. Awareness of the vastness of the self and of the need to reintegrate all the lost and hidden parts of it.
Azoth Symbol: A space alien implants a microchip in a sleeping man’s leg. The sensing of hidden or secret connections that we all have with a greater reality.
Seed degree: Gemini 24. A man who heals water, be it in lakes, rivers, the ocean, or a glass. (Omega Symbol). As water is receptive to any and all vibrations, it is realized as nature’s original library.
A nude man with a tail. (Chandra Symbol). Our primitive instincts and our vulnerability are a manifestation of the spiritual light, and, ironically, a source of protection.
Fulfillment degree: Aries 29. A woman immersed in healing mud. (Omega Symbol). To try out and experiment with knowledge gained from the library of eternal truths, we are compelled to immerse ourselves in the great testing ground of the physical plane.
Dr. Jekyll drinks the potion. (Chandra Symbol). Steadily focused on the light, we then find in ourselves the power to investigate our own inner darkness.
The library of Chandar is not housed in a building but exists in the open air. It stands on a beautiful pavement of inlaid stars and complex geometic patterns, which is fully visible since the shelves of the library are invisible, as are the books and their bindings. It is only the ink of the pages of the books of the library of Chandar that is visible, the words seeming packed densely together and hovering in neat rows in the air.
Scholars and seekers coming here always bring with them a sheet of white paper, which they place behind the page they are reading so as to be able to see the words, elsewise the words on the invisible page would appear to blend in with the pages that follow them.
It has been noted that the books are indestructible, that no amount of force can tear the page from a book, that no rainstorm, hurricane, earthquake or flood can harm these books, for they have, over time, experienced all these forces unharmed.
The library is vast and said to hold some 50,000 volumes. No one has any idea whatsoever as to where and how these books were printed, or the invisible shelves manufactured.
What most disturbs researchers, though, is an inexplicable fact: occasionally, though infrequently, misspellings will be found in one of these books, though a few of the wise say that each seeming misprint is actually purposeful, and secretly alludes to other and hidden meanings.
