TITLE: NEW AND STARTLING PERCEPTIONS
Things in the physical realm can often seem very unclear – impenetrable. Sometimes just a slight change of attitude, or viewing things from a different angle, or with a new set of beliefs can cause what is happening to become clear and legible. You are a natural interpreter, and so can help others to understand what is going on through your unique way of seeing.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A young woman notices the handsome man has fangs.” In both of these symbols something new is perceived that wasn’t before. This degree has highly unique perceptions and so can offer a new and different perspective on many things. It’s especially aware of any dangers afoot, and of hidden motives that others harbor. It may be, though, that this degree’s perceptions are not accepted by other people – maybe because others are in denial, or possibly because these perceptions reveal subconscious motives that the person is not aware of, or maybe for other reasons as well. And so in some contexts it might be better to keep these insights to oneself until the time and/or the context is right to reveal them.
There is also here the danger of jumping to the wrong conclusions as to the meaning and nature of what one perceives, or of misinterpreting data or projecting onto it one’s own fears and desires.
Pleiadian Symbol: A pterodactyl soaring to get a better look at the stars. A powerful and primitive urge to transcend one’s environment to get a clearer perception of cosmic realities.
Azoth Symbol: A group of friends perform folk songs. The ability to smoothly and easily shift the awareness of others toward greater joy and beauty.
Seed degree: Cancer 21. A man milking a poisonous snake of its venom so that he can make an antidote.(Omega Symbol). Finding solutions to problems within the problems themselves gives us an alignment to nature that unfolds the understanding of its deepest secrets.
High up on a mountain an eagle’s nest. (Chandra Symbol). Ascending to a place of spiritual power, we are then able to see things more clearly for what they really are.
Fulfillment degree: Capricorn 6. A woman inventing magical perfumes. (Omega Symbol). We assimilate the wisdom of the secret text and then are able to invent methods to disseminate its vibrations.
An ancient gold scarab lying in the sand. (Chandra Symbol). When we realize our animal nature and are able to control its power without repressing or denying its existence, we find that we’ve retrieved a precious and wise part of ourselves that was previously lost.
It all depends on the filters desired. Meanings overlay meanings, all hiding each other. But he desired to know, to understand. Which spontaneously gave rise to the glasses that made everything invisible except for the meaning he was seeking. Because knowing required limiting, required a carving into reality that cut out that specific, exquisite shape he had always yearned for in his imagination.
A group of musicians met at Irnad’s round tower on every full moon to perform traditional songs of Aab. And it was occasionally at these meetings that as they sang into the night they might find their melodies shifting and changing until a new song emerged. None of them of them knew the words of it, and yet they sang them anyway, as if a spring had suddenly opened up in their memory, and words and music flowed forth from some underground source. Irnad was always ready with his pen and his shorthand to write them down, and one among the musicians whose memory was keen would always afterward recall the music and make note of it on paper.
In this way the known songs which they sang would lead them to the unknown and forgotten songs, which were born forth like butterflies from cocoons of the past, to be shared and sung again by the peoples of Aab.
