TITLE: LIBERATION OF FORMS FROM LIMITS
Omega Symbol: Music, fading into silence, re-emerges as color.
When anything in your life loses energy or momentum – as everything inevitably does – you strive to give it new life by recreating it at a higher level. You have a talent for being able to take in an experience or concept deeply, and then re-express it with greater subtlety and/or clarity so that it becomes more vivid for others. The more you let go of your ego and tendencies toward self-judgment, the more freely and powerfully you can express this talent.
You can find a new means of approach to what you are trying to communicate – a new language in which to say it.
Pleiadian Symbol: Priestesses lounging in the cool shadows deep within a temple
Feeling around oneself an aura of protection and holiness. Spirituality as a relaxed and peaceful state of mind that can be shared with others. You create and enjoy a psychological place of sanctuary and quiet in which both you and others can take refuge. It’s strange to compare this symbol with the corresponding Chandra Symbol, but the secret here is that the ego must be limbered up by the action of the Chandra Symbol as a means of making the Pleiadian symbol possible.
Chandra Symbol: A pie thrown in someone’s face.
If you take yourself too seriously, getting a pie thrown in your face could make you feel like a victim, or like your dignity has been assailed. But if you can keep a light attitude you may see it as just a joke, and nothing important. It’s important for you to not be too rigid, and to realize that everything that happens to you is your karma, so there are no victims. And besides, by being the butt of a joke you are giving to others the gift of laughter and entertainment. There is something about you that is profoundly unserious in the most positive sense. Seriousness can separate and isolate and repress, whereas humor has the power to bring others together and unleash pent-up energy.
Azoth Symbol: A woman being taught magic by two witches.
Learning how to manifest creativity in ways that always takes dichotomies into account. You have to study with two witches because when they disagree you get to see multiple points of view and alternative ways of performing magic. That way you are prevented from taking on a narrow and dogmatic view of reality.
Seed Degree: Gemini – 18
A magician gives to the wind messages that are to be delivered. (Omega Symbol). Trusting that whatever we produce will find its rightful place in the world, we find ourselves becoming psychologically free to experiment with a wide range of possibilities.
A book with blank pages. (Chandra Symbol). When we are open to whatever we may come, we are always surprised by what we draw to ourselves, and by the way it attempts to break down our limited assumptions.
Fulfillment Degree: Aries – 14
A snake wiggling out of its old skin. (Omega Symbol). As we allow ourselves to freely invent and improvise, we overcome the limitations we have imposed on ourselves and come into an exhilarating renewal of our being.
An apple tree -many rotten apples on the ground around it. (Chandra Symbol). Shocked out of our limited focus, we become aware of all the possibilities of new growth around us.
It means that colors can be seen rhythmically, and fugues might be woven in the air. And although the colors found this interesting they much preferred to be freed of all structures except those that arose spontaneously out of their immediate whim.
Sometimes wishing for anchors they sought out spiders who would weave webs along which they could slide their rainbows, or dewdrops out of which they could refract. Broken glass was also a nice place to dart through. All in all, the colors were pleased with the millions of new fingers the keyboard gave them.
Princess Ateh records in her diaries that when she was a young girl her first two teachers in the arts of magic were two witches who came to live at the palace of her parents for the express purpose of imparting to her their precious knowledge. One was always dressed in black and the other in white, but that as her lessons progressed they tended more and more to lose somewhat their colors and to take on various and shifting shades of gray which became more marked the more she mastered her studies.
Eventually as her knowledge progressed these shades of gray began, faintly at first, to take on color which grew more various and iridescent as her lessons proceeded, the witches appearing one day as siamese twins who had only three arms, and then soon after only two legs but still two torsos, and finally a single body with two heads, and then on the day she was told she had completed her studies she found she had only one teacher who had become unicephalic.
