Taurus 22. A man drinking a tonic that causes rainbow colors to spread throughout his body.(Omega Symbol)Interacting/Sensitive

(Degree Angel: Imamiah (ee-MA-mee-Yah) Passion, Expiation of Errors


The man of this symbol drinks a spiritual tonic. To fully assimilate it he needs to keep drinking it over and over, each time taking it in more deeply. All suffering in his life is there to remind him of a need to allow the integrating and harmonizing forces of the spiritual light to enter his being. His challenge is to be receptive to those energies so that they may fully suffuse him, refining and uplifting him as they clear out all negative karma.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A blindfolded woman who sees the future.” What she sees can only be one of two things: either the further perpetration of karmic bondage, or further liberation through spiritual evolution. The Omega Symbol signifies the ability to both heal and nurture the self, the Chandra Symbol the ability to tune out the outer world so that the direction in which energy is moving can be felt. The Chandra Symbol may allude to the lack or weakness of one type of sense perception (outer blindness) that is made up for by the person having another sort of perceptiveness )iinward seeing). This person does not see what others see, and hence their insights can be of great value because they offer a new direction and perspective on experience.

The Omega symbol knows what it needs, and, if this instinct is listened to and followed, the ability to find a means to meet those needs.

Pleiadian Symbol: A yellow butterfly fluttering over a vast ocean. The ability to be light and clear even while realizing the vastness and scope of the emotional realm. The soul’s awareness of the depth of itself.

Azoth Symbol: A gem cutter’s tools carefully sharpened and polished. A fine clarity in fostering the manifestation of the light.

Seed degree: Sagittarius 14. A man communicates in graceful sign language. (Omega Symbol). Communicating gently and with the whole of our being we create within ourselves a healing energy that enlivens us deeply.

A terrarium filled with carnivorous plants. (Chandra Symbol). When we tune in to the unique needs of every situation we become increasingly aware of the direction our actions are taking us.

Fulfillment degree: Cancer 5. A statue of ice sitting in the desert. It doesn’t melt. (Omega Symbol). Becoming saturated with the spiritual light we become increasingly impervious to the forces of destruction.

A trap door under a rug. (Chandra Symbol). Sensing the direction in which we are headed we search for alternative possibilities which are often not obvious.


An elixir of flower nectars and mists, of golden rains and dark sleets and mountain snows, an elixir of waters and light, the waters providing the light with a body where it might open into the fullness of its color. His throat a ravine down which the light and water rushes into a cave of marvels, each color drawn to heal a different ray of darkness. For darkness, too, has its own dark rainbow.

Azoth Symbol

A certain gem cutter of Peth uses only a light which shines from his eyes to cut gems. He says, though, that the problem with doing this work is that his eyes become dimmed by invisible clouds which arise from the gems when they are cut, obscuring his vision. And so every few days he must take up a cloth imbued with jewelers rouge and polish his eyes back to their original brightness, a task which, he says, causes him no pain and which actually he enjoys doing. He also says that the gems create in his eyes a visual dullness which he sharpens occasionally by staring into lightning during thunderstorms.
