Degree Angel: MELAHEL (MAY-la-HEL) Sharing the Flame, Healing Capacity, Manifesting/Inspired




Omega Symbol: A statue of ice sitting in the desert. It doesn’t melt.


You are able to go your own way with such persistence that you completely ignore anything which is not supportive to your agendas. You don’t fit in, but this can be a tremendous blessing, offering to others a vision of new and freer ways of being. The problem is that sometimes you won’t let yourself feel things you’ve denied or are afraid of. You must in time come to terms with these.


Pleiadian Symbol: Coming to a fork in the road a man has a surprising realization.


Becoming aware of potential choices heightens one’s perception. New opportunities as amazingly fructifying forces.  The inspiration to think outside the box.


Chandra Symbol: A trap door under a rug.


A secret escape route – a need to hide sometimes, to get away from it all, to seek retreat in a place of privacy where the self can be the self and rest for a time from having to always resist the coercions of the world.


The statue of ice refuses to be dominated by the sun, refuses to meet the expectations of what it should do. A tremendous resistance in this degree, a tremendous desire and ability to be true to oneself and maintain one’s integrity, either by out-and-out disobedience to seeming laws and inevitabilities, or by simply disappearing.


Azoth Symbol: Characters from various books are laughing and joking with each other.


The making of friendly and loving connections between totally different conceptions of reality – which enrich both of them.  Reaching across seemingly unbreachable boundaries.


Seed Degree: Taurus – 22


A man drinking a tonic that causes rainbow colors to spread throughout his body. (Omega Symbol). To drink in the gentle vibrations of the spiritual realm makes us impervious to the harsh vibrations of the physical plane.


A blindfolded woman who sees the future. (Chandra Symbol). When we can see how karma is playing itself out we open up to new potentials that were formerly hidden.


Fulfillment Degree: Aquarius – 8


A man experiences much pain and discomfort as wings sprout on his back. (Omega Symbol). Becoming stronger in our ability to deny the compulsions of our ego, we find we are suffering consciously, and for a purpose, and that it is leading to our freedom.


A book, the words in it keep changing. (Chandra Symbol). Realizing possibilities that were formerly hidden, we come to see that our whole story is capable of being rewritten at any time and in any manner we so desire.


Omega Oracle


People argued over whether the statue was actually carved of clear quartz, or was truly fashioned of ice. For if it were of ice, why did it not melt? But, said others, quartz is not continually moist to the touch as this statue is, quartz does not drip water as this statue does. And yet for all its dripping over the centuries the statue never melted, always seemed the same, and was cold to the touch.


Travelers crossing the desert all knew of it, and, weary of their journey would come to kiss and lick its surface and place their cheeks against it, to drink in a little of its moisture and be comforted by its coolness.
