Gemini 3: An invisible man wandering in the night. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Receptive
(Degree Angel: Anauel (a-NA-oo-EL) Appreciation, Perception of Unity)
TITLE: PENETRATION INTO MYSTERIES
You have a strong urge to investigate and to roam, and can be fearless and boundless in your searching. You have a way of being non-threatening, and because of this people will allow you into their world, where you can learn much and potentially offer assistance which they would have accepted in no other way. You can accomplish much in a quiet and unseen manner.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A dense thicket of brambles surrounding a magic castle.” The brambles are a protection, as is the invisibility of the man in the Omega Symbol. This degree is about relating, and in the process of doing so finding ways to get through barriers of fear and misunderstanding so that one can make deeper connections.
Another aspect of this degree is that it may ward off connections with life and/or other people and not be aware it is doing this. Ultimately it is a way of maintaining one’s freedom to be oneself – a kind of filtering device that only allows in what harmonizes with one’s own vibrations. This can be positive in that it protects one’s energy, but, like all systems of protection it can also, in some contexts restrict personal evolution.
Pleiadian Symbol: In spring old people sitting along garden paths and enjoying the flowers. Renewal of self by focusing on freshness, beauty, simplicity, and innocence.
Azoth Symbol: A visionary lies in a dark room as she waits for signs and messages. The shutting out of the outer to allow the emergence of the inner.
Seed degree: Aries 27. Over a waterfall gleams a rainbow many thousands of years old. (Omega Symbol).
The mist rises, revealing the spectrum of the light. Empowered by it, we let go of all fear and set out to explore the darkness.
A fun house. (Chandra Symbol). Experiencing so many delights and surprises as we journey through the fun house, we come eventually to The Serious House – which is actually a more profound version of the fun house. If we can get beyond the brambles of our fears, hesitations and uncertainties, we may enter it to study the Art of Magic.
Fulfillment degree: Gemini 6. In the far north an ancient tower carved of ice. (Omega Symbol). Wandering the depths of ourselves we discover at our core a pillar of clarity from which we may view our own vastness.
A claw foot holding a ball. (Chandra Symbol). The secrets of the Magic Castle – they are transparent and slippery, but once grasped we see that their form is whole and complete, and fits perfectly into our hand.
Although he was invisible, when he looked down he could see his footprints forming in the grass as he walked. He wore shoes on his nightly outings, which was not a problem, for anything he put on also became invisible for the time that he wore it. Dawn always brought, gradually, the return of visibility, and a fading of all memories of the night before. Which made him not only invisible in the night, but made his night self invisible to his day self as well.
In a locked room in the Temple of Nasheg lies Thirana, a mystic, who continually receives signs and messages, and has for over 300 years. They never bring her anything to eat or drink – when she came to this room she asked not to be disturbed. Every year or so a priest quietly opens the door to look in on her. There a candle still burns, one that has never been replaced, and which has never burned down, the light of its flame shining on her breathing, ageless form.
Irnad tells us that Thirana is most certainly receiving visions, and that they are in fact being shown to those for whom they are meant, but only in dreams, some of which the dreamer remembers, sometimes vividly, sometimes vaguely, while others share the fate of certain precious gems hidden in the earth, which will never see the light of consciousness.
Never will Thirana record her visions, or collect them into a book, for each vision she sees is meant only for one particular individual, who receives them secretly, never knowing from where they came.
“Visions are drawn to her,” said Irnad, “They find their way to her, enter her, and through the focus she imbues them with they find their path to their destination. “It is why I have named her The Lens.”
