(Degree Angel: Rochel (ro-SHEL) Lost and Found, Restitution)
TITLE: THE DESIRE TO CAPTURE THE MEANING AND ESSENCE OF THE MOMENT
Whatever we become entangled with by circumstances must be something that we need, for everything is there for us to learn from. This degree know that truth and so is very accepting of anything that comes its way – always trying to figure out the relationship of that thing to itself. Its magic is the ability to transform the seemingly random into the deeply meaningful.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A ritual sand painting.” Here is the desire to bring all of one’s vision and aliveness into the moment, without having to worry about the future or what it holds. The sand painting reveals the underlying cosmic patterns of the universe. It shows us something, but because the grains of sand are not fixed, and will be thrown to the winds once the painting is completed, it reminds us that these cosmic patterns it reveals are actually within us – we are living them. Can we, like the spider of the Omega Symbol, search our mind to see if we have captured the meaning of them?
This degree carries the emphatic message that we need to align ourselves with the energies of the moment in the cosmic dance, and not worry about the future, for the present wholly and fully lived will give birth to the most beautiful of futures.

Fulfillment degree: Sagittarius 30.By time traveling, a man takes a photograph of dinosaurs. (Omega Symbol). Seeking for something to nurture ourselves we probe deeply into our needs, which carries us to their roots in the past.

(From an early discourse of Irnad the Wise, known in his youth as Irnad the Relatively Astute): “For the soul is like a spider, in that it fashions a web of conditions, circumatances and events for itself, in which it might trap nourishment, that food being understanding, which, when consumed might grow into wisdom.
“But even when the soul finds itself in its self created web it might come to think that it itself is trapped, or might not recognize as food whatever else has been caught therein. and unlike the simple spider the human web is vast, and must be searched dilligently and assiduously to discover that for which it hungers.”
