Gemini 18. A magician gives to the wind messages that are to be delivered. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Receptive
(Degree Angel: LELAHEL (LAY-la-HEL) Dream State, Light of Understanding)
TITLE: FAITH IN THE HARMONIZING FORCES OF THE UNIVERSE
You have the power of being unattached to the outcome of your communications, of giving them to the world so that whoever wants or needs them may partake of them. You use ideas and words to nurture others, knowing that when the time is right everyone will pick up on the messages they need. Your open-mindedness stimulates others to be more open minded, so they may let go of their obstructive preconceptions.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A book with blank pages.” You cannot tell the wind where to go or pre-determine its destination. The messages of the Omega Symbol will get to where they need to go by the workings of karma and destiny. There is great freedom and possibility here. There is a lack of accumulation here, or an ability to look beyond (focus beyond) accumulation, and so the freedom that emptiness and openness allows. When there is this degree of non-attachment the person, like the wind, is free to change direction at will, and to allow definitions and identities to be loose, flowing and light-filled.
Pleiadian Symbol: Chinese characters appearing in the air as men speak to each other. Ability to read into rich and subtle subtexts as one communicates.
Azoth Symbol: Forgotten words of wisdom suddenly at the right time recalled. Allowing the simple force of spiritual truths to enter into and clarify one’s experience.
Seed degree: Libra 27. A painting that will not dry. (Omega Symbol). Knowing that change is always possible we remain elastic and open, so that messages may flow to the beings that need them.
A black leopard beneath a full moon. (Chandra Symbol). The intensity and fullness of our passions needs the book’s blank pages as fields on which to express themselves.
Fulfillment degree: Virgo 7. Music, fading into silence, re-emerges as color. (Omega Symbol). When we trust that we will be connected to whatever it is we need to experience, we find ourselves opening to higher and subtler realms of perception.
A pie thrown in someone’s face. (Chandra Symbol). Inevitably, someone has soiled the pristine blank pages with an inkblot, or maybe a masterpiece, but in any case if we are to give up suffering we must give up this ridiculous need for purity, and allow ourselves to play with the pages and ink.
The question is, can the wind be trusted? We only experience the wind in passing, and even when we go with it, for awhile, say on an ocean voyage, it always races ahead – we never know its ultimate destination, being unable to keep up with it.
The magician was convinced that the wind could not be trained, but, being able to read its desires, he could sense the places to which they pulled it, and adjusted his messages accordingly.
“How is it,” asked a student of Irnad, “that you are so often quoting verbatim long passages of so many different texts? How can you have memorized so much?”
“We memorize everything we ever see,” replied Irnad. “My memory is no better than anothers’. I will say, though, that for years I spent great effort on conscious forgetting, that is, clearing the turbulence of unnecessary memories out of my psyche, so that all my memories might rest until I needed them. When I finally cleared enough space in my mind a friend of mine who happens to be an angel installed in me a most efficient search engine. When memories are allowed to settle and sleep it clears the mind. Then they may be awakened when their services are required.”
