Gemini 30. From far away, a sailor has brought home a carved idol. (Omega Symbol)Transforming/Inspired

(Degree Angel: CALIEL (KA-lee-EL) Fertility, Justice)


Everything we need is always near at hand, but sometimes when a distant or remote concept or energy is brought to people, it helps them to see the world around them in a new way, and to realize the completeness of their existence as it already is. You delight in the unusual, and have an instinctive talent for showing others that everything is ultimately strange, unusual, and wondrous.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Many glass animals on a shelf.” The animals signify all the various forces of nature, here clear and full of light. What seems to be simple and common is replete with wonder. This degree attunes to that truth, and lives it in a way that helps others to sense, to whatever degree they can, the magical and cosmic aspects of existence.

In the same way the sailor of the Omega Symbol enriches his environment by going far away from it to find new perceptions, new expressions of eternal truth, which he then brings back to open others to new ways of being. This degree is all about making connections that assist others in getting beyond their limitations and illusions.

Pleiadian Symbol: Women lounging in the mist of ocean spray. The sharing of deep emotions, which has a mutually healing and reviving effect.

Azoth Symbol:  Angels helping humans to perceive and understand more clearly. Openness and attentiveness to the supportive influence of evolutionary impulses.


Seed degree: Pisces 21. In a cold, harsh climate, a woman uses magic to create a lush garden. (Omega Symbol). Through intent, life is nourished and cultivated by our energy, even in places where it would seem that it would not flouish. To carry this out expands our ability to draw to us energies that once seemed remote.

Pagan fire worshipers dancing. (Chandra Symbol). The fire worshippers, through attuning to the fire spirits, come into a crystal clear connection with the various personalities of nature.

Fulfillment degree: Virgo 8. People dragging a beached whale back into the ocean. (Omega Symbol). Through finding the energy that is needed in our environment and willing it to manifest there, we help everything to find the environment it needs to be safe, secure, and flourish.

A man thinking up names for colors. (Chandra Symbols). Perceiving with clarity the many aspects of nature, we allow our imagination to communicate them through poetry.


A tentacled god, carved from black basalt, has come to New England. And now in the night elderly matrons have dreams of being mermaids cavorting with lusty mermen in ocean depths.

The effigy of stone has grown greener and brighter since his arrival, and it is no wonder, for he knows now that it was the Older Gods who drew him to this place. His presence is needed here, where he might infest the good people of New England with ocean darkness.

Azoth Oracle

From “Angelic Links,” by Aztarthus Varsithius): “Angels are the very soul of cleverness, for their ways of communicating with humans are unlimited, new methods being constantly created. I must state emphatically that nearly all thoughts, impulses and actions that humans experience are affected by the angelic hosts, though it is very few humans indeed who may receive these signals with total clarity.

“Angels communicate continuously, though the layers upon layers of dark shrouds that envelop most humans means that the light of angels is perceived only dimly and their messages misinterpreted. We do have hope though, for in the very process of living these shrouds are eventually either worn away or consumed in the light’s fire.”
