Taurus 11. A man jumping into a river, melting, and flowing away. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Experimental
(Degree Angel: Hahahel (HA-ha-HEL) Self-Esteem, Mission)
TITLE: SUBMITTING TO THE FLOW
You can unite so intensely with the experience of the moment that you become it and disappear. The intensity of this can threaten other people, but don’t allow that to stop you. You have an irresistible urge to take things to the farthest degree possible – its wonderful, transformative, and exhilarating. Follow it faithfully to wherever it takes you.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A woman with flames for hair.” Here is a merging with fire, as the Omega Symbol is a merging with water in the Omega Symbol. One would think that the woman’s head would burn up, but it doesn’t. This degree knows that we can withstand more than we think we can, and that there is no reason to fear intensity. If we give in to the intensity of our vision what is burned away is heavy karma that has kept us from manifesting our true self.
Pleiadian Symbol: Fairies enshrouding a garden in mist. A gentle softening and easing of all processes of growth, which eventually allows one’s thoughts to experience the purifying fires of the Chandra Symbol.
Azoth Symbol: Suddenly a vista from the past opens up. The potential of understanding and releasing karmic accumulations.
Seed degree: Leo 2. On the surface of water, flecks of dust floating. (Omega Symbol). Connecting to the countless subtle messages the universe is always sending us, we are inspired to find vehicles through which to channel the energies of the spiritual light.
A horn of brass to be used as a hearing aid. (Chandra Symbol). The more closely and intently we listen to ourselves the more we become attuned to our own unique creative vision.
Fulfillment degree: Pisces 3. Just before a wedding, a purifying rainstorm. (Omega Symbol). Imprinting our positive intent onto our life in a general way imbues all our relationships and encounters with an harmonious, life-giving tone.
An eye gazing out of the top of a pyramid. (Chandra Symbol). Focusing on pure love allows us to perceive more clearly the patterns of the universe and the way they all fit together.
The water in him is aware of other waters, the faraway seas and the river which is close, just beyond his bedroom window.
At night as he sleeps the water in him listens to the river, his veins and arteries are carrying the echoes of it through his heart.
Now he is running over the grass in the full moon toward the river’s bank.
Leaping he extends vastly toward the sea, bifurcates, becomes tributaries, brooks and waterfalls.
At last, relieved, he has become the river.
In a special room in the library of Peth are shelves of history books with no word in them. Instead, when a book is opened one finds oneself looking into a window onto the past. There is a whole 20 volume history of Rome here that shows the coronation of emperors, daily life at the baths, the flogging of slaves, foreign battles being fought, sumptuous dinners and every other imaginable scene of Roman life. The denizens of these pictures seem not to know they are being watched, and sometimes the picture fades away. But if one turns the page one finds another scene being enacted before one’s eyes.
The Historian Delabrius Ronar has recorded many conversations he overheard from these books, though he says his research was long and tedious, as so much of what he heard was not worth repeating.
