TITLE: THE INFINITE CONTAINED
You live in your own world, which is lush and fertile. You tend to be conflicted concerning whether or not you want to connect with the outer world, or stay inside. Your goal is to share yourself with others, but with as little compromise as possible, so that the integrity and wonders of your richness is preserved – even if some people have difficulty understanding them.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A very complicated hedge maze.” To lose oneself in a maze or a forest means that a search will have to occur – and just imagine what others things are waiting to be found as you seek yourself! You might become frustrated if you focus on your confusion and uncertainty of direction, but if you can relax and focus on all the twistings and turnings of your journey and trust in the fact that there is something to learn from every single thing that happens, you will find untold riches that await your discovery.
This degree is about the agendas of the soul eclipsing the agendas of the ego. When you don’t know where you’re going or what you’re doing, it may be because a part of yourself that’s beyond your conscious ken has taken over.
Pleiadian Symbol: A solitary wheel rolling through a forest. Free exploration of the hidden.
Azoth Symbol: Inspired by a landscape a poet composes an ode. Desire to capture the essence of wonder and to make it come alive within the imagination.
Seed degree: Gemini 26. A man cutting the limb of a persimmon tree to make a wand. (Omega Symbol). Having enlisted the forces of nature to assist us in expressing our creativity, we travel deep inside ourselves to explore our own inner richness.
A cave in deep ocean waters. (Chandra Symbol). Having found a place of sacredness deep inside ourselves we are ready to explore the complexities of our being.
Fulfillment degree: Taurus 4. A linguist invents a perfect language. (Omega Symbol). Caught in our self-made dilemmas we realize that the only way out is to perfect our ability to communicate with self.
A man talking in his sleep. (Chandra Symbol). The logical mind, lost in its maze, is exhausted, allowing the intuitive self to find its voice.
He stands on the edge of the forest shadows gazing out over the smooth sunlit lawn toward the castle of his birth.
He knows that as soon as he turns around and looks back into the forest he will forget the lawn and castle and once again fall under the spell of the forest’s vastness.
But he isn’t ready to leave, the green shadows beckon to him, and the emerald dream of being lost in the sea of leaves.
As a youth the poet Milon was a shepherd and wrote twelve odes which describe the landscape in which he tended his flock. Each of these odes describe the land at different times of the year and at different hours of the day.
Reader and listeners who have experienced them find something ineffable and mysterious in their music, for the very sounds of them have been known to cause one to enter visions so intense that they become lost to the world around them and seem for a time to dwell in an aura of pure mystery in which the spirits of nature envelop and immerse them in realms of distant memory.
