Pisces 21. In a cold, harsh climate, a woman uses magic to create a lush garden. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Experimental

(Degree Angel: Anauel (a-NA-oo-EL) Appreciation, Perception of Unity)


This degree is about creating one’s own environment for whatever one is trying to accomplish. The forces of nature are eternal and always there when called upon, always willing to assist one if one will simply connect with them and ask for their help. At worst this degree isolates itself in its own dream world. At best it makes the dreamworld a reality and invites others to join in the enjoyment of it.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Pagan fire worshipers dancing at night.” This degree brings light into the darkness and encourages others to join in the process of doing so. It is not about to fall prey to fear, depression, or the confusion of uncertainty. Its attitude is, “light a fire, make up a dance, call in the clan.” Even in tragedies and dark dramas it finds something to celebrate, for it knows that inevitably the light will conquer. It also knows that both the dark and light follow complex cycles, that both life and die and are born again. And so even in grim and harsh times it is expectant of sparks which will kindle into new flames, providing new excuses for celebration.

Pleiadian Symbol: A wizard is showing a young girl and her dog the way to the cave of the gnomes. The ability to find just the help one needs to proceed on one’s path. Connection to sources of wisdom for the purpose of guidance concerning the nature of physical reality and how to deal with it. The innocent seeking of darkness to learn its mysteries.

Azoth Symbol: Someone thinks he sees in the distance the ghost of an old man walking across a moor. The acute awareness of loneliness, loss and separation, and realization of the fact that this simple awareness actually contributes to a healing of it. The old man of this symbol is like the desolation of the cold, harsh climate of the Omega Symbol, and the one seeing the old man is like the woman who creates the lush garden. Both symbols are about bringing love and caring to desolation.

Seed degree: Sagittarius 12.Reaching up, a man writes on the sky. (Omega Symbol). Communing with creative intelligence we are able to channel its energies into the physical world to create beauty and food for both ourselves and others.

Icicles melting. (Chandra Symbol). Sharp, jagged, repressed emotions thaw out. It makes us want to light fires and dance.

Fulfillment degree: Gemini 30. From far away, a sailor has brought home a carved idol. (Omega Symbol). The effects of magic suddenly appear, and we are surprised. Now we want to know from what distant realms beyond the usual they have come – what are their mythologies – and who their supporting actors?

Many glass animals on a shelf. (Chandra Symbol). The fire dancers dance away all uncertainty. The dance unwinds all confusion, is full of pure knowing. All becomes transparent.


The weather was bleak and sunless, rainy and cold, for she lived in the Northern Wastes..  And so she knew that if she was to have a garden it must be she who became a climate for the planets.  She searched within herself for sunlight and rich soil  and gentle moisture, and found it, and bringing it forth she created a world outside herself from the world within her.  It was an act of seeing, perceiving, and she imbued the plants with her seeing and they too began to see beyond the world in which they found themselves, and grew in the power of this.

And from this she learned that weather creates walls, but that walls might be imbued with doors through which what was beyond could be let through.
