* Taurus-5


Degree Angel: Chavakiah (cha-VA-kee-Yah) Sexual Energy, Reconciliation, Manifesting/Inspired




Omega Symbol: In a faint light, a maps coastlines are vague.


Your uncertainty is like an open door, allowing in new possibilities. If you are unsure of what you are doing, it’s OK, because your apt to find more than what your looking for. Things are worth more and are of deeper significance than they look, and its your destiny to seek out the hidden richness that is all around you.


Pleiadian Symbol: Tears falling into a seemingly bottomless chasm.


Emotional release that continually becomes more and more profound. Realization of the feeling of emptiness with a resulting sadness about this, but the potential of eventually becoming full and whole as the process of release continues. As the tears fall into the chasm we become empty of tears, but have created a fructifying ocean.


Chandra Symbol: Tiny porcelain figures of people.


The tiny porcelain figures are a collection of personality types, characters from plays, novels and history, as well as mythology. People who have been, could be, might be. We’re trying to understand all the different possible types and kinds of humanity, trying to get a feeling for the limits and boundaries of consciousness – it’s coastline. What this creates in us is a rich, imaginative and endlessly inventive inner life that ultimately helps us to transcend the limits of personality as well as help others to become freed of the burden of personality by seeing themselves as denizens of a dream or fairytale.


Azoth Symbol: A hidden compartment in a box.


The sensing of deeper and deeper layers of concealed energies.  You thought something was empty, but then you look beyond the boundaries of its seeming emptiness and you find things secreted there.  You know that precious things are stored away everywhere, and patiently and artfully and with much sleuthing you open up their hiding places to discover their contents.


Seed Degree: Taurus – 20


A man performing a complicated weaving pattern from memory. (Omega Symbol). Patterns deeply ingrained in the mind eventually give way to a softer focus (because we become tired of them, bored with them, or just plain through with them), which opens us up to new possibilities.


A fork in the road with a blank signpost. (Chandra Symbol). Not knowing which way to go (and/or giving ourselves the permission to be arbitrary or experimental in our choice of direction), we are free to try on different identities, or to base our actions on what we think others might do.


Fulfillment Degree: Aquarius – 3


A man in a boat wakes up just in time to avoid a waterfall. (Omega Symbol). Softening our focus allows us to see with greater clarity the needs of the moment.


A vast ornate Hindu temple depicting hundreds of Gods. (Chandra Symbol). Seeing so many different types of beings we come to realize that they are all divine manifestations of consciousness.


Omega Oracle


The mapmaker studies himself in a mirror. He’s curious about coastlines, even his own. Dusk has come and he can hear the waves breaking against his outline, which is becoming indistinct. It’s dark now, and he’s fallen asleep, dreaming himself into other shapes, ones he can never quite make out.
