TITLE: THE EMBRACING OF WHOLENESS
You have so many thoughts, and perceive so many ideas that it can become very difficult for you to decide where to focus or how to put them all together. You need to not let this overwhelm you. Instead, keep focused on the flow of things, and know that all will get to where it needs to go. There is a spiritual rightness at work beneath all things. The simple intent to stay attuned to it is your magic.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A claw foot holding a ball.” Here is the attempt to grasp wholes, and to overcome the potentially fragmented quality of Gemini, just as in the Omega Symbol what is usually liquid – water – is fixed into a substantial form up which one can ascend to get an overview of the surrounding territory. The struggle is not in trying to put things together – they already have a divine structure and purpose – but to resist the distractions of lesser, trivial things.
Pleiadian Symbol: A sinkhole opens up into the earth. Finding a way in to exploring the physical realm
Azoth Symbol: A book of formulas. The accumulation of root methods and concepts.
Seed degree: Gemini 3. An invisible man wandering in the night. (Omega Symbol). When we perceive to an extent the overall pattern of spiritual realities, we are able to explore the depths of the self more freely and openly.
A dense thicket of brambles surrounding a magic castle. (Chandra Symbol). Sensing the pure aliveness at the center of ourselves, we are able to grasp wholeness – the magic antidote to fragmentation, lack, and incompleteness.
Fulfillment degree: Virgo 6. Talismans buried here and there along the road so that travelers will be protected. (Omega Symbol). Perceiving how we can be substantially supported by our own emotions, we tap in to the protective influences we find on every hand as we journey forward through time.
A banyan tree that creates an entire forest. (Chandra Symbol). From the clarity and eternal completeness of consciousness springs with wonderfully complicated tree of life, ever growing, renewing and expanding.
The cold allowed the water to achieve a stillness it could never attain in the sea. A waterspout arose and froze and a man filled it with stairs and visited the top, where he witnessed the aurora borealis casting its tremulous lights across the white land. The tower patiently absorbed his fear of falling, and even invited him to sleep for awhile in the air, for to traverse the long arctic night required many dreams.
An ancient and neglected book of formulas was found in the Library of Peth. It was nearly 700 pages in length and had been written in exceedingly small script by a careful and meticulous hand. But since it was indicated nowhere in the book what any of the formulas were for, interest in the book soon waned, and it was placed back on its shelf to continue its work of gathering dust.
“I memorized one of those formulas once,” said Irnad, “in the hopes that were I to know it by heart its purpose might be revealed to me. All I can tell you is that I feel the deep familiarity I formed with it changed me, though I cannot tell you how. I would not be the same person I am today had I not carried it with me all these years in my memory. And I love it, I love what it has done to me, what it still does, though I cannot being to describe what that is.” “And so, “ asked a student, “would you care to return to the book and memorize another formula?” “No,” replied Irnad. “First things first. I’m not done with this one.”
