Pisces 26. A writer endlessly revising his work. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Experimental

(Degree Angel: Habuhiah (he-bU-hee-YAH) Contacting Departed Souls, Healing)


This degree is always moving deeper into the attempt to express itself. It is attempting to overcome the barriers that stand in the way of connecting with other people, and so works with whatever it has as a vehicle of communication, trying now this and now that way of transmitting its ideas. If it can put aside frustration and any feelings of alienation as it approaches this task slowly and patiently, the results can open up new vistas of understanding,

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “The aurora borealis.” This degree focus on the over lighting spiritual forces at work in all situations. It sees everything in an expanded context, as being imbued with overtones and shimmerings of the divine. This awareness is not easy to express, but the mere witnessing of it brings some of this energy into the world around them and helps others to loosen up and lighten up, and to soften the tightness of their focus. Just as the writer of the Omega Symbol through constant revision is trying to allow more and more of his vision to shine through his words, the one who witnesses the northern lights needs to accept into his mundane existence the beautiful iridescence streaming in from the spiritual world.

Pleiadian Symbol: Within the shadowed part of the moon a tiny momentary flare of light is seen.

Azoth Symbol: On a lawn boys chasing a ball that seems to have a life of its own.

Seed degree: Aquarius 12. A man struck by lightning is miraculously unharmed. (Omega Symbol). Having contacted the full force of our inspiration, we now wish to allow it to shine through our works.

A heated argument turns into laughter. (Chandra Symbol). The lightness of laughter opens our perception to the spiritual light.

Fulfillment degree: Scorpio 30. Former reflections appearing on a mirror. (Omega Symbol). Deeper and deeper realizations about what we are doing leading to a synthesis of past energies into the present moment.

A very dark sky, but no rain. (Chandra Symbol). Having seen the promises of what lies beyond, we can now cope with current oppressions.


Tandar Arsak, one of the greatest writers of Aab, thought he had written only one novel, “The Seer,” but in fact readers consider that he has written at least seven.  Let me explain:

Tandar endlessly revised his work, and always preserved his earlier manuscripts.  As he continued to change the names of characters and their personality traits, as well as his story lines, the new drafts gradually changed over time so much that they ceased bearing any resemblance to his original story.

The number of drafts he wrote of “The Seer” was 216.  Today one can obtain the publications of draft 7, 32,48, 93, 168, 193 and 216 of this book, and unless one knew Tandar’s method of working would think that each of these novels is completely separate and different from the others.

This is why Tandar is often referred to as “The Mutator.”
