[vc_toggle title=”(138) Omega/Chandra Symbols: Scorpio 1 – 5″ el_id=”1465432750868-8dd0cf65-49bd”]Phase 43. Defying Gravity (Vav Vav Lamed)
Angel: VEULIAH (vay-OO-lee-AH)
Scorpio 1. A man suspended in the air watches everything from a great height. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Experimental
(Degree Angel: Eyael (AY-ya-EL) Great Expectations, Transformation to the Sublime)
This degree has the ability to stand apart from the world around it and to gain from this a broader perspective and sense of the whole. The positive side of this is that the person has an invulnerable quality – they are somehow beyond the stress and discord of life. The negative side can be an inability to connect. As they learn to connect without being drug down into any lesser state, they eventually come into their power and purpose.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A tunnel through a mountain.” This degree cares not how difficult something may be – it will work to get where it’s going no matter how much effort it has to put forth. It is so very aware of all life’s obstructions, and of everything blocking its path. It also knows that everything is attainable and its desire is always to take the direct approach, even if that means having to tunnel through a mountain.
There’s such a beautiful polarity here between the Omega and Chandra symbols – in the Omega Symbol the man simply hovers over everything as a means of gaining an expanded perspective. In the Chandra Symbol he is deep in the ground. Here in the first degree of Scorpio we finds the heights and the depths – just as the eagle and snake are two different animals associated with Scorpio. It is interesting to note that the negative space of the tunnel is shaped like a snake.
This degree says, “I will not be stopped, I will go where I please, and am willing to pay the price to get to wherever I feel I need to be.
Pleiadian Symbol: Delegates from afar traversing the Avenue of Sphinxes.
Azoth Symbol: In darkness an old woman climbing a circular stairway that she has climbed countless times before.
Seed degree: Aries 8. A man journeying far north to the mouth of a river. (Omega symbol). When we get to the source of our emotions, we are elevated into a broad and expansive vision of ourselves.
A lizard dressed in blue satin and pointed shoes. (Chandra Symbol). A light but highly focused touch allows us to make our way through all obstructions and to penetrate the densities of all difficulties.
Fulfillment degree: Libra 18. Waking in the night a man feels an earthquake. (Omega Symbol). When we see the whole of things through rising above them, we then need to come back to earth and respond to the energy that is deep within.
A woman carefully counting the beans in a jar. (Chandra Symbol). The most difficult and arduous parts of our journey makes us more aware of the signs, symbols and portents along the way, for they are helping messages.
In the uncharted lands of the far western forests there is said to be a mountain which is invisible. The alchemist Tolar Razan has recorded in his journal a week he spent climbing that peak, which, he says, is one of the highest in all the lands. He climbed it as a blind man would, waving a long stick in front of him so that he might avoid its invisible trees and unseen outcroppings of rock.
He also says that at night he found that the invisible branches of the mountain’s trees made an adequate campfire and burned just like visible wood, and with a visible fire, and that as he slept he heard invisible animals approaching to investigate him, though he was not afraid for they seemed only curious and not intent on any harm.
He has recorded that the peak’s summit, though of an extreme altitude, is temperate, the air in fact not being thin, and without the tortures of bitter cold and fierce winds that inhabit visible peaks. He says that the view from the mountain’s top was spacious in the extreme, and obscured at times by clouds above which the summit rose.
After descending the peak he explored its environs and inquired of the locals as to the name of the mountain. They told him, though, that its name was also invisible, and hence not to be pronounced.
Scorpio 2. A lighthouse is moved inland. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Sensitive
(Degree Angel: Habuhiah (he-bU-hee-YAH) Contacting Departed Souls, Healing)
You have an ability to steer through the most confusing and turbulent of emotional waters. You sense where limits are, and when retreat is the only safe action to take. You are drawn to helping other people, especially in exceedingly difficult situations. You are staunch and lofty and can be depended upon, for you’re aware of the power and danger of illusions.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A large stately bronze horse.” You hold on staunchly to your principles, and can be very supportive of the people whose ideas and motives harmonize with your own. You’re aware of power in all its forms and will do whatever you can to maintain your own.
If you use your power to proliferate that which is positive and beneficial to both yourself and mankind it will serve you well. If you fail to do this, though, you will eventually lose it. One of your biggest challenges is your tendency to be unbending. There are many situations in which your stubbornness may serve a positive purpose, but being rigid when you need to be flexible can create some of the greatest problems you will ever encounter.
Pleiadian Symbol: A crystal shatters releasing a cloud of dreams and memories.
Azoth Symbol: A spiritual leader carrying out a solemn public ritual which raises the vibrations of the populace.
Seed degree: Aries 20. Streets littered with many colors of confetti. (Omega Symbol). Once any celebration is over we need to attend to the work of nurturing and protecting anything which provides a vehicle for the manifestation of the spiritual light.
An empty courtyard. (Chandra Symbol). A protected space within allows us to get in touch with our strength, power and durability.
Fulfillment degree: Scorpio 18. Something waking for a moment in a cocoon. (Omega Symbol). When we keep our vibrations entrained on spiritual realities and seek to always be a light for others, both we and others become more and more aware of the transformations taking place within.
People holding hands around a table. One candle is burning in the middle of the table. (Chandra Symbol). Rather than allowing our strength and independence to isolate us, we eventually use it to assist us in communing with others for the sake of mutually reinforcing the manifestation of the light within.
The Lighthouse of Zendar now stands in a vast desert. It once stood on the shore of the Gazdan Sea, which has not existed now for many thousands of years. The alchemist Tamil Razan says that under certain astrological conditions – when Cancer is in the ascendant with Moon waxing in summer, that one may ascend to the lighthouse’s top, and with the aid of a certain herbal formula of his devising which is to be smoked, gaze out on the waters of the ancient Gazdan Sea, for, as he states in his book “The Lives of Liquids,” when bodies of water die they too will often return to the earth as ghosts, the two bodies most likely to take this form being seas and pools of tears.
Scorpio 3. A mysterious food, a small piece of which will satisfy hunger for days. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Receptive
(Degree Angel: Rochel (ro-SHEL) Lost and Found, Restitution)
This degree possesses innate knowledge of what is needed to sustain life, versus what may be desired based on fantasies or addictive needs. There is something highly concentrated about its energy, so that what it may seem to be at first may be quite different from how it is experienced as it unfolds over time. It is hard to get to know, hard to assimilate and may be difficult to understand, but any attempts to do so are well worth the effort, for it has much of value to offer.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Pigs being fed.” We associate pigs with gluttony and over-eating. The Symbol does not say how much they are being fed. Are they being stuffed with as much food as they can possibly hold, or are they being fed a healthy amount? Scorpio is the sign of desire, and over-eating is often an attempt to fulfill oneself when one has been starved or denied in other areas. At its best this degree revels in what is taken in, be it love, a beautiful painting, a sunset, or a bowl of macaroni and cheese. If, though, it is not in deep and sincere touch with its true desires, it may binge chronically in an attempt to get something it never quite gets.
Pleiadian Symbol: Workers without any plans are building a labyrinth.
Azoth Symbol: Alchemists sharing, integrating and refining their formulae.
Seed degree: Taurus 2. A saint’s bones have turned to pure gold. (Omega Symbol). When we contact the deepest most enduring meaning within, we find that it is amazingly nurturing, and has the power to sustain us deeply when we allow it to.
Wilting flowers form a graceful pattern in a vast. (Chandra symbol). The passing away of beauty, when realized as beautiful in itself allows us to be nourished by all the phases of the cycles of birth and death.
Fulfillment degree: Sagittarius 18. A satyr chasing young maidens who are laughing and screaming. (Omega Symbol). A deep fulfillment of our desires allows us to be carefree and to enjoy life to the fullest.
Rose petals scattered on a path. (Chandra Symbol). When we allow ourselves to be satiated we are than able to see the love that is everywhere to be found along our way.
The cakes produced by a certain baker/alchemist of Aab who wishes to remain anonymous are able to satisfy hunger for many days. These cakes are round, about the size of peas and dissolve quickly in the mouth. Travellers who have consumed these say that each one bears a different taste, and that in fact the taste unfolds in the mouth over several days as it continues to change, sometimes seeming like fruits or boiled roots or various herbs or other culinary ingredients.
It is also noted that the effects of these cakes is cumulative, for a certain woman of great age who consumed them for many years in her extensive wanderings has now been without food for three decades, the tastes that still to this day appear and disappear in her mouth, she says, having become a great source of wonder and delight.
Scorpio 4. An albino woman unaffected by the rays of the Sun. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Responsible
(Degree Angel: Jabamiah (ya-BA-mee-YAH) Recognizing Design Beneath Disorder, Alchemy, Transformation)
There is an ability here to repel any and energies coming from outside. In short, the person can be almost impervious to influence. They have a staunch integrity that refuses to be impressed or compelled even by the strongest of powers. They do not buy into what seems to be, for they have the capacity to see beyond appearances into the spiritual reality of things.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A loud roar as a tornado approaches.” The loud roar gives one time to take cover or run away from the tornado. This degree is aware of mental obsessions, compulsions and other consuming forms of negativity, and because it has an internal advanced warning system it instinctively will circumvent becoming involved in many forms of chaos and destructiveness. It knows that sometimes turbulence must be waited out and allowed to dissipate.
It is as unaffected by the mental mind-wind as the albino woman is unaffected by the scorching rays of the Sun. This ability to repel discord can help to set an atmospheric tone that helps others to not fall prey to their own raging mental vortexes.
Pleiadian Symbol: A nude woman holding a candle around which dances a moth.
Azoth Symbol: Sailors approach a lush island that has been calling to them but which is not on their maps.
Seed degree:Taurus 14. A woman making her way to the center of a labyrinth. (Omega Symbol). Finding the center within we attune to the higher light of pure love and tune out the lesser love, which is solely selfish.
An old lady selling bunches of violets on a street corner. (Chandra Symbol). When we humbly and spontaneously offer our beauty to the world we are able to overcome the negative effects of all mental whirlwinds and conflict dramas.
Fulfillment degree:Capricorn 18. A forgotten painting stored in a vault. (Omega Symbol). Detaching ourselves from the force of selfishness, we find within treasures that we have forgotten.
A black leopard with green eyes. (Chandra symbol). The conflicts and chaos that the mind can produce, when overcome, allows us to get in touch with our primal desires and find a way to constructively channel them.
The alchemist Piaro Lambeth once generated an homunculus who from birth had been fed only dew collected during the full moon and melons picked only at night and preserved after picking from the rays of the sun. He gave her the name Lunadoria, and she lived her early life in the grotto beneath Lambeth’s house where visitors often came to hear her oracles, which she murmured in some unknown tongue. And even though the visitors never understood the strange words of her pronoucements they found that days later they would dream a clear and vivid answer to their question, which they attributed to the power that her words carried.
One day she asked to leave the grotto and Lambeth consented, feeling that her desire was a sign of her maturing. When she emerged it was noted that even during the day she could not see the sun, and that no matter how much her snow white skin was exposed to sunlight it never showed any signs of burning. And so she wandered the woodlands and the streets of Peth, where she offered her pronouncements to anyone who questioned her.
Being now over 200 years old she appears to have aged in no manner.
Scorpio 5. A sculptor creating large, fragile works of art out of paper.(Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Inspired
(Degree Angel: Haiyael (HA-ee-ya-EL) Prophecy and Parallel Universes, Divine Warrior/Weaponry)
This degree is intent on expressing its creativity without any concern for how it will be received or interpreted. It goes its own way and plays with energies in an uninhibited fashion that is free of tradition, constraints and formal rules. The message is communicates is that all passes and that time and change are not to be feared, but rather savored in the moment..
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “An Egyptian queen with a braided beard” With her beard she is trying to gain credibility and authority by taking on the symbol of power, just as the sculptor cares so little for credibility that he creates works of art in a virtually unmarketable media. This degree realizes the unreasoning and narrow biases of society, and is willing on the one hand to to work within those to achieve its ends, or, when it feels it can afford the price, to ignore societies limited framework and strike out on its own.
At best this degree brings greater self awareness to others and to the world at large. It is an adept and aware social critic, though the medicine it offers society may not be readily taken. It also has a magical ability to inspire confidence in others – confidence that they can be themselves, and that they can effectively cope with the restrictions that society places on them.
Pleiadian Symbol: Sharp rocks splashed, dripping with sea spray.
Azoth Symbol: Many precious objects being heaped on an altar.
Seed degree: Taurus 26. All over the city, words on scraps of paper floating through the sewers. (Omega Symbol). Experiencing all the waste and junk around us, we seek a way to make something positively creative and meaningful out of it.
Grotesque rocks in a sand garden. (Chandra Symbol). When we perceive the way nature is so free in her continual creative experimentation, we allow ourselves to be empowered by our own inner wisdom – which is the same thing as this creative force.
Fulfillment degree: Aquarius 18. A cloud in the middle of an empty sky has lost its way. (Omega Symbol). Allowing whatever we create to be of the moment, and not worrying about whether it will endure, we realize that even if we and what we make evaporate, we will simply reincarnate in another form – in fact in just the form that we need to progress us.
An American Indian woman in a canoe. She is gathering wild rice. (Chandra Symbol). Empowered by our own feminine wisdom we seek in nature that which will nourish both ourselves and others.
In 4197 the sculptor Synosrap Relt finished his 11 year project of creating the 7 story tower made of paper known as the Obelisk of Sandar, which still stands today, after 700 years, in the Grand Park on the outskirts of the city of Peth. It is amazing in its scuptural details and origamic virtuosity, and is said to have more than 1000 gargoyles made solely of folds covering its surface.
The alchemist Tonar Rason, shortly after the tower was erected, enveloped the area in which it stands with several spells – formulas to prevent the stirring of any air, others to make the tower itself impervious to rain, and others to maintain a steady and mild atmosphere surrounding it. To this day the spells still hold and the tower is visited every year by thousands, though none could ascend it due to its extreme fragility until the year 4269 in which the alchemist Durad Ramas installed at its entrance a magic stone of his making, which, if kissed, would render most visitors light as a feather for several hours and hence allow them to ascend the tower, in which they could admire its elegant spiral staircase, elaborate system of vaulting, and rooms in which Relt had placed some of his most inspired sculptures, the most famous being his “War of the Butterflies.”[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”(139) Omega/Chandra Symbols: Scorpio 6 – 10″ el_id=”1465432766001-06afabdd-5057”]Phase 44. Sweetening Judgement (Yud Lamed Hay)
Angel: YELAHIAH (yay-LAH-hee-YAH) Karmic Warrior
Scorpio 6. Unaccustomed to high altitudes a woman breathes deeply and walks slowly. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Experimental
(Degree Angel: Mumiah (MOO-mee-YAH) Spiritual Cleansing, Endings and Rebirth)
There is here an ability to meet the requirements of the environment so that it may be melded with, and taken in in a complete way. As anyone adjusts to the changes they are moving through, the way is prepared for more changes of a higher kind. What is required to activate the best qualities of this degree is patience and focus, and a tuning in to the transformations happening in the moment.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A dancer with eight arms.” The central energy of the Tree of Life has eight arms which connect to all the other energy centers. This dancer is like this energy – engaged in the process of synthesizing all aspects of life into a dynamic whole.
It is not in the nature of this process to ever be completed, for it is a creative flow, never static, and always changing, like a moving kaleidoscope. If this degree accepts this way of being, marvelous and continuous inspirations can flow forth from it. If it tries to be overly consistent or to fit into a mold it will always end up fragmented and frustrated. The key here is to let it all happen, and to never get hung up on criticism, judgement and uncertainty – for the passing moment is meant for better things.
Pleiadian Symbol: A man using his intuition to search for fallen meteors.
Azoth Symbol: An archaeologist carefully wiring together the bones sof a dragon which he has unearthed.
Seed degree: Gemini 8. A man performing a strange expressive dance only by moving his hands. (Omega Symbol). When we attempt to communicate that which is subtle and ineffable we come to the realization that we need to move slowly so that what we are communicating can be assimilated.
A chandelier which holds lit candles. (Chandra Symbol). Our overlighting awareness inspires us to synthesize and assimilate the divergent energy streams in which we live so that we may harmoniously share our existence with others in a mutually nourishing manner.
Fulfillment degree: Pisces 18. A dressmaker fashioning beautiful gowns for a queen. (Omega Symbol). We elevate ourselves and then becoming attuned to that new level of awareness, seek the most captivating ways of expressing our insights so as to enhance their wonder.
White lilies blooming alone in the shade. (Chandra Symbol). Synthesizing so many energies together we finally learn to do this in an increasingly cool, placid and clear manner.
On Denari Plateau the air is so thin that even when the sun is shining the sky is the deep blue of twilight. There grows a certain white flower there called imrath, whose blooms exude a perfume that assists travellers in breathing the thin air, and as, fortunately it grows in abundance there and blooms the year round, those who come to Denari Plateau find that through breathing deeply and walking slowly they are able to withstand the extreme altitude of the place.
It has also been noted that those who spend a sufficient length of time there develop an unusual effect from have imbued their bodies with this perfume: At night, in total darkness they shimmer with a faint, white incanescence, which has been described as similar to the lights of the Aurora Borealis.
Scorpio 7. A poem has disappeared from a sheet of paper. All that is left behind is a few iridescent stains. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Sensitive
(Degree Angel: VEHUIAH (vay-HOO-ee-YAH) Time Travel, Will and New Beginnings)
There is a deep desire here for profound communication, and to express the essence of one’s soul. The way to handle this energy is to freely and joyously attempt communication without becoming frustrated by the limits that time and space place upon it. This degree goes beyond words and any other vehicles of communication until it finally reaches the essence of pure knowing.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A small cave located high in the hills and filled with goat dung.” Former ways of being, with their trials and tribulations, create waste products. If these are scattered about in our consciousness we end up continually stumbling over or stepping into them, which weakens our ability to be present in the moment. The best way to handle these waste products is to gather them together and find a place to store them, so they may break down into fertilizer for the new creative cycles coming in the future.
This degree is about the challenge of letting go of what we’re holding on to so that we may move on. Many times people THINK they have let go of something only to find out later that they’ve merely repressed it. When this degree cannot let go of something it needs to admit the attachment to itself and then find a way to get it out of the way as much as possible, so that it does not disrupt or inhibit its current process. Then, in time, and maybe gradually, the attachment may be released.
The person of this degree is often tempted to mull over remnants of the past, sifting through them for evidence with which to justify himself, or because he thinks by doing so he will gain greater understanding. This activity is usually engaged in because the individual lacks confidence and/or is overly critical of himself, and they may well find that too much digging into and mulling over what has gone before will only reinforce his tie to the past.
Pleiadian Symbol: In ocean’s greenish depths a searcher for pearls.
Azoth Symbol: Deep in a mound an immense white termite queen is giving birth continuously.
Seed degree: Gemini 26. A man cutting the limb of a persimmon tree to make a wand. (Omega Symbol). The slow and gradual strengthening of our will force allows us to distill our expression into something that is intense and yet subtle.
A cave with carved walls. It is an ancient temple. (Chandra Symbol). Deep in our inner self we find enduring truths which express who we are, as well as the fertilizer needed to feed the garden of our soul.
Fulfillment degree: Aries 19. A skeleton dressed in garlands of flowers. (Omega Symbol). Transcending words and obvious meanings we enter a realm of transformation where we find that death and life mutually enhance each other in their cosmic dance.
Someone performing trephination. (Chandra Symbol). When enough has been stored inside us and reached a great enough degree of fermentation we finally experience a breakthrough into much greater sensitivity and receptivity.
A certain poem written by the Poet Cineer Razdan is in need of continual copying to prevent its loss, for the arrangement of the words and the energy with which he has imbued them causes them to begin to turn colors and disintegrate within a few days as they run together, creating pictures that fade and change until after only a matter of hours they have become nothing more than a few iridescent stains.
Mystics have found that each different copy of the poem creates different pictures as it fades away. It is thought by some that these pictures may actually be subtle imprints which come from the reader’s own mind.
Scorpio 8. A woman in a hot bath. Outside, snow is falling. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Receptive
(Degree Angel: JELIEL (Jay-lee-EL) Recapturing the Sparks, Love and Wisdom)
There is an ability here to create one’s own atmosphere around the self and to be so thoroughly immersed in it that one becomes impervious to any harsh or unfriendly conditions in the outer world. There is a need, though, to question one’s motives for ignoring outer reality. At its highest the energy can be used to protect oneself so that creative and spiritual agendas can be carried out. But if this way of being is not serving a higher purpose and is depended on to the point of becoming a crutch, it will result in stagnation, and eventually fail.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A retarded man with white hair. He has an angelic countenance.” This degree is beyond intellect, and even if the person who has a planet in this degree is intellectual they will be detached from such processes, in such a way that the narrowness and biases that create intellectual limits are transcended. Sometimes it will disturb other people that the person of this degree knows things automatically and directly, even when they have had no prior exposure to them, or haven’t taken in much information about them. This ability to directly access truth can be used to nurture others, and help them to realize the existence of other realms of reality.
Pleiadian Symbol: At night the moon finds places to dance.
Azoth Symbol: A man lays in bed calmly listening to a poltergeist.
Seed degree: Cancer 2. A man with no navel. (Omega Symbol). When we let go of our need to depend on anything outer we find within a deep nourishment that protects us even in the midst of the most non-life-supporting environments.
A bunch of iron keys. (Chandra Symbol). We have all that we need to open all doors and when we realize this we come into a synthesis of our innocence and our wisdom.
Fulfillment degree: Taurus 19. A bottle of gold dust gathered from many places over many years. (Omega Symbol). Meaning extracted from many different experiences and sources is synthesized together and creates an inner assurance that is joyful, nurturing, and warm, and which protects us from the hostile forces of life.
A crown turns into goat horns. (Chandra Symbol). Expressing our wisdom in a simple and unabashed way, and giving up the need to intellectually and objectively justify ourselves becomes a source of true empowerment.
In the high mountains North of Peth is a hot springs known as the waters of Kelaar which flows forth into a realm of ice and snow. For the delight of travellers alchemists versed in the transplantation of weather have surrounded it with a small piece of jungle no more than100 paces in diameter. (And by the laws of weather transplantation there must exist somewhere, deep in some far off jungle a small patch of land shrouded in eternal snow).
It was here that the lady poet Jaralia loved to bathe in the warm, mineral rich waters as she gazed through the surrounding thicket of ferns and palms into the falling snow that could just be glimpsed beyond. In her famous autobiography she states, “My heart is like these waters of Kelaar, arising from unknown depths and flowing forth into their small lush land, an island arising in the midst of a realm of vast desolation.”
Scorpio 9. Looking through a microscope, a man sees a woman waving at him. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Responsible
(Degree Angel: SITAEL (SIT-ah-EL) Miracle Making, Construction of Universe/Worlds)
What seems far away is actually very close, and if one looks more deeply into what is near there is much to be found and appreciated. The distant galaxies may seem impersonal, but it is to be remembered that they are looking back, and if we could see them clearly, we would feel the deluge of smiles raining down on us. Intimacy and loving connection is something we can have any time and anywhere, as long as we allow ourselves to feel its call.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A hand with six fingers.” Five is the number of the microcosm and six is the number of the macrocosm. So this hand with six fingers is depersonalized – it becomes not the hand of an individual, but the hand of the universe. Of course it belongs to an individual, but the universe works through it, and does so wonderfully – as long as the individual does not repress the urge to give.
If this person does not believe in themselves they may hesitate in carrying out the will of the universe. The solution to this potential problem is to not make self-confidence an issue. Even if one is uncertain and unsure, the act of giving can still occur. No effort toward being kind is ever wasted.
Pleiadian Symbol: A dentist performing a difficult root canal.
Azoth Symbol: Several thick volumes of dream journals which are filled with writings and drawings.
Seed degree: Cancer 14. In an old display case, a collection of rare mineral specimens. (Omega Symbol). Whatever we collect in life is actually an attempt on our part to communicate with something, which will eventually acknowledge this and reach out to us to heal our separation.
A dried up stream bed covered with smooth rocks. (Chandra Symbol). When our sharp edges are worn away we are able to offer the world the wonderful bounty of the universe, which is channeled through us.
Fulfillment degree: Gemini 19. The Golden Fleece hanging in a garden. (Omega Symbol). Making contact with the deepest and subtlest levels of our being, we find, in these seemingly tiny and insignificant things, a tremendous wealth and a magical power.
Strange creatures peeking out from behind trees. (Chandra Symbol). When we allow ourselves to give and receive in an utterly open manner we become attuned to all the helping spirits of nature.
It is the semi-mythical alchemist Sarad Masheesh who is said have discovered those races of beings which he called “The Extremely Little People,” some of whom delight in living on the skin of larger beings, while others, mermaid-like, delight in cavorting in the bloodstreams of animals, while others might take up residence in a candle flame where they may build cities and recite inaudible epics but at a speed so fast and a size so diminuative that none may hear nor see.
Scorpio 10. In a field of dandelions, a yellow dragon appears. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Inspired
(Degree Angel: SITAEL (SIT-ah-EL) Eliminating Negative Thoughts, Construction of Universe/Worlds)
The common and ordinary are so very unusual, but of course, as we learn to see this, even the unusual even becomes usual! This degree is inexplicably strange and extremely unique, but yet carries with it an aura of innocence and blithe normality. There is a wonderful amalgamation of joy and power, which, as we come to understand it, we see is actually pure joy intensified into utter potency.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “ On a human nose a wart turns into a diamond.” Dandelions and warts are common, and considered by many to be ugly, whereas dragons and diamonds are rare, wondrous and special. The special alchemy of this degree is turning the mundane into the precious by seeing it as precious.
And at a higher level even those things which we consider tragedies, failures and mishaps have about them something beautiful in the way they are so personally tailored as learning experiences. To see them in this way is the special power of this degree, a power which is redemptive and liberating.
Pleiadian Symbol: A stranger having supper with a group of friends.
Azoth Symbol: Heavy winning and losing at a gaming table.
Seed degree: Cancer 26. Sounds of laughter coming from many different directions in the forest. (Omega Symbol). Realizing the joy that is everywhere around us we become greatly empowered and centered in a light, yet potent manner.
Pastry makers. (Chandra Symbol). To offer to others that which is beautiful and special helps them to see the beauty of their own so-called imperfections.
Fulfillment degree: Cancer 19. A man memorizing Chinese characters. (Omega Symbol). As we attempt to find a way to communicate all the subtleties and complexities we feel inside us, we become more aware of of the meaning of the universe, as well as its (the meaning’s) plasticity and universality.
An opossum comes out into the moonlight. (Chandra Symbol). Finding beauty even in those things which are usually considered as imperfect or ugly, we increase our connection to our emotional self and a deep, instinctive understanding of its needs and workings.
In Baklan, where the dandelions bloom so thickly in spring that no grass is to be seen anywhere it is said that the combined forces of so many millions of blooms can at times generate pollen breathing dragons who, though short lived, will terrorize the land by exhaling noxious yellow clouds on their victims, relief only coming when these monsters turn white and feathery, and then having come to this vulnerable state are slain by a breeze.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”(140) Omega/Chandra Synmbols: Scorpio 11 – 15″ el_id=”1465432786847-23118a7d-8ef8″]Phase 45. The Power of Prosperity (Samech Aleph Lamed)
Angel: SEHALIAH (say-HA-lee-YAH) Motivation and Willfulness
Scorpio 11. Shadows of trees lying over a vast lawn. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Experimental
(Degree Angel: MAHASIAH (mah-HA-see-YAH) Healing, Rectification)
Everywhere death and darkness are integrated into life, and life accepts them as part of itself – so why shouldn’t we? Knowledge manifests in an endless number of forms and through an endless number of vehicles. We walk into and through it every day. This degree mirrors the beautiful and vast complexities living within simplicity.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Gnarled twisted trees against an overcast sky.” Trees symbolize knowledge, and here without leaves the knowledge has been stripped down to its core ideas. The overcast sky means the Sun, which is the conscious self, is obscured, thereby allowing the more intuitive feminine side to come forth. Note that it is not “Gnarled twisted trees against a full moon.” which would signify the feminine in full force. Instead there is daylight – elsewise we wouldn’t see the trees.
The trees may be dead, but they also may be dormant. Either they will leaf out into new manifestations of knowledge, or if dead will rot and fall – which will also allow new manifestations of knowledge to grow, but in a more complete way – that is, from the root.
Either this degree gets hung up on the dreariness of the scene, or knows that all barrenness is part of a process of cyclic change, and so is to be welcomed as a prelude to a re-flowering. At any rate, this degree can have an acute intuitive sensitivity to poverty in all its forms and what it has to teach.
Pleiadian Symbol: Dolphins carrying a shipwrecked man to safety.
Azoth Symbol: The spirits of cats roaming in the night.
Seed degree: Leo 8. An old medicine man with eyes like a snake’s. (Omega Symbol). A vision which penetrates into the secret heart of existence perceives the reflection of higher realities into this one.
A young woman sits at a piano and improvises beautiful music. (Chandra Symbol). Spontaneously expressing what is within us we come to perceive both our inner clarity and inner cloudiness.
Fulfillment degree: Leo 19. A painting is cleaned, revealing colors of otherworldly beauty. (Omega Symbol). Perceiving the workings of higher realms in this one we are able to cast off anything which occludes our brightness.
A hummingbird feeding at a trumpet vine. (Chandra Symbol). Perceiving our own lack, and our state of being cut off from higher forces impels us to seek out the specific energies that will nourish us.
On the estate of Shandar to the north of Peth is a vast treeless lawn that was, in centuries past admired for the great size and comely shape of its ancient trees, which eventually died. It is said that sometimes in early spring, before other trees have leafed out, that the shadows of these long dead trees may still be seen on sunny days, covering the lawn, and that the finer upper limbs may even be seen to be moving gently in the wind.
It is in a like way that forms existing in higher realms may sometimes cast their shadows into this one, so that we may know of their nature by indirection.
Scorpio 12. A woman with a collection of rocks shaped like hearts. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Sensitive
(Degree Angel: LELAHEL (LAY-la-HEL) Dream State, Light of Understanding)
This degree is looking for something – a repeated pattern in reality, a synchronicity. And it will find it. The question is, what does it mean? And why is it sought? When the hardness of the heart is cleared, meaning can then flow through all of reality. Our obsessions are our hard places – and we need to follow them until they yield their secrets.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A young man with a frail body, but a beautiful and noble face.” The contrast between “heart” and “stone” in the Omega Symbol mirrors he contrast between “beautiful and noble face” and “frail body” in the Chandra Symbol. This degree is always aware of the difference between what the most spiritual aspect of the self wants, versus the limitations imposed on those desires by the physical world. The challenge of this degree is to not allow the physical limits to dominate, and also not to retreat from the physical world. Spirit can transform matter, and even though the task may often seem arduous, it is of tremendous benefit both to spirit as well as matter.
Pleiadian Symbol: On a platform in the sky two people are waltzing.
Azoth Symbol: Rising through earth, water, and air, a traveler is exploring.
Seed degree: Leo 20. An herb which if over-consumed, causes one to die of laughter. (Omega Symbol). To flee emotions too often by retreating to the realm of laughter can have a petrifying effect on the emotional body. Conversely, laughter engaged in therapeutically helps to tune us in to the hearts’ burdens so they may be cast off.
A black pearl hidden in an oyster. (Chandra Symbol). To contact with wisdom hidden within creates in us an identification with our spiritual self.
Fulfillment degree: Taurus 20. A man performing a complicated weaving pattern from memory. (Omega Symbol). We gather together those things which hold meaning from us, and eventually we are able to synthesize them into a completeness.
A fork in the road with a blank signpost. (Chandra Symbol). Identification with the spiritual self provides us with an inner direction that can overcome all outer confusions as to where we should go.
Every day she wandered the forests of Aab and searched for heart-shaped rocks. And the rocks knew they were sought, and wanted to be with her, so would call to her without her consciously hearing them, and guide her footsteps to the places where they waited.
And after many years , when her house was filled with heart-shaped rocks of many colors and sizes there came a turning point – a dream in which she heard the forest speaking to her, telling her that the time of giving had come.
And so the next morning she took a few of her rocks with her, and entering the forest asked of it where she must go, and which rock to choose, to find the perfect place for it, so that the heart of the forest might be rekindled and magnified for others who would come there to partake of its magic.
Daily she took more rocks with her into the forest, and each day felt the forest awakening more and more, and the presence of more spirits, who had come to bask in the forest’s newfound life.
In several years her work was complete, her house empty of rocks, the forest filled with new magic.
In later times they called her Anara of the Heart, for like a heart she had received, and given.
Scorpio 13: An acupuncturist who activates points simply by holding a needle above them. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Receptive
(Degree Angel: ACHAIAH (a-KA-hee-YAH) DNA of the Soul, Patience)
Here is a tremendous subtlety that is empowered by intent and instinct. This degree is very gentle, and carries much healing energy. It has an ability to clearly and acutely identify where energy is being disrupted by blockages, and knows instinctively that the direct and/or overt approach to clearing these is often what won’t work. There are other ways – always – and this degree is privy to them.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Someone tells a joke and no one laughs.” This image begs the question, “What happens next?” One possible scenario is that the person who told the joke feels abashed, ridiculous, even guilty, or inappropriate. Another scenario is that the person tries another joke and sees if the other people will like that one. Or maybe jokes are forgotten and the subject is changed altogether.
This is a “try it and see” degree.
Pleiadian Symbol: An alchemist reworking a formula.
Azoth Symbol: The voice of one deceased is heard in the stillness.
Seed degree: Virgo 2. A table on which many healings have been performed. (Omega Symbol). When the healing energy has been built up over time it can be activated with a minimum of force.
A man hanging upside down from a tree. (Chandra Symbol). When one is deeply attuned to spiritual realities the responses one gets from the outer world can be unexpected.
Fulfillment degree: Libra 19. An innovative dancer performing a strange ballet. (Omega Symbol). Being able to tune in to and direct the subtle energies of healing opens one up to a realm of creative expression that can release all pent up energies and held karmas.
Young boys picking and eating cherries off a tree. (Chandra Symbol). When one does not get the reinforcement one expects from the outside world, new, simple and joyous means are found with which to connect with others.
( From Usar the Variable’s book “Cities of the Iridar.”): It is known of certain acupuncturists of the city of Saalem on the Iridar river that they possess needles of fine crystal in which live the 72,000 solar color beings called “Those of the Rainbow.” And that by simply holding the tip of these needles above certain places on the surface of the body these beings perceive what is needed of them and enter into the body of the one being healed, penetrating it as a exceedingly fine and unseen radiance, which is perceived only by certain seers trained to do so, and that this light moves and shimmers through the sick one as it seeks out shadows, discords and other plagues, thereby returning to the spirit its ascendancy over those fleshly illusions.
Scorpio 14. A white marble foot glows pink as it turns into flesh. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Responsible
(Degree Angel: CAHETEL (KA-heh-TEL) Defusing Negative Energy, Divine Blessings)
Understanding is only cold and impersonal when it is fueled by fear. When it is combined with the heat of love it comes alive, is released from its limits, and is renewed. This degree is about waking up, and waking others up, especially waking them to what they already know but have forgotten, and waking them to their connection with the whole universe.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Women dressed in black. They are wailing and mourning.” The fact that there is more than one woman in the symbol signifies the giving and receiving of support in the process of mourning. If this process is deeply and fully engaged in it will lead to the rebirth signified by the Omega Symbol of this degree. What is of critical importance to realize here is that if the act of mourning is not deep and full enough it might must become a habit, a place where one becomes stuck. Completely submerging oneself in the act of mourning, though, as signified by the fact that the woman are clothed in black, is what will cause one to be able to release it and move on to renewal, as signified by the “rope going up into the sky” of the fulfillment degree.
Pleiadian Symbol: A sacred running carrying a message to the mountains.
Azoth Symbol: An astrologer looking for a major conjunction of planets.
Seed degree: Virgo 14. A collection of diamonds of many different colors. (Omega Symbol). Being able to turn any energy into something positively has a deeply enlivening effect on whatever one creates.
A long steel screw. (Chandra Symbol). Strong and deep attachments eventually lead to mourning until they are released.
Fulfillment degree: Scorpio 19. An angel kisses a man while he sleeps. (Omega Symbol). When we soften our consciousness so that we may perceive that everything is alive, we are visited by and receive the love of the angels.
A rope going up into the sky. (Chandra Symbol). When we share our grief wit others in a complete way, we lighten ourselves so much and create such a connection with the divine that we are able to rise above the heaviness of the physical world.
Hindar’s famous Sculpture “The Dryad of Menum” was a portrait of Enard Travaal’s love, Deralia, who had died tragically, struck down by a meteor. Every year many come to witness in the Museum of Peth the foot of the statue turning pink on the anniversary of Deralia’s death as it comes to life, often the toes wiggling and stretching before the foot one’s again turns back into marble.
The Historian Renad Fazar has pointed out that in Travaal’s diaries he mentions that in his palace this statue was displayed on a high pedestal, and that frequently Travaal would kiss the foot of it, his love, Fazar supposes, accumulating there and over time imbuing the statue with a faint life.
Scorpio 15. Intently and faithfully a man observes his own breath. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Inspired
(Degree Angel: HAZIEL (HA-zee-EL) Angelic Influences, Divine Mercy and Forgiveness)
The greatest creative act is to merge with the present moment as it moves through time. To be in the present is to be in the process of letting go, because what we hold onto is always the past, or a fear bracing against the impact of the future. And letting go is death, the joyous relief of dying, which must be embraced if we are to live fully. This is the wisdom of Scorpio 15.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A woman with a gold tooth.” Defects and weaknesses when finally and completely worked through become strengths. The tooth has decayed, but the decayed part is replaced by something more perfect than the original tooth. This degree is about embracing one’s own weaknesses and vulnerabilities, and realizing that they are not just something one has to live with, but can be overcome, especially if one is willing to be patient and attentive, as the man of the corresponding Omega Symbol.
Pleiadian Symbol: Inside an hourglass children playing.
Azoth Symbol: A man seeking the truth behind a complex and confusing situation.
Seed degree: Virgo 26. Under the full moon, a sagging balcony. (Omega Symbol). When we instinctively perceive that which is no longer supporting us, it impels us to come vividly into the present so as to re-engage ourselves with our own life force.
An old man counting gold coins. (Chandra Symbol). Carefully assessing what it is we posess, we attempt to use it to heal and balance ourselves.
Fulfillment degree: Sagittarius 19. An old, abandoned garden, everything under a blanket of ivy. (Omega Symbol). Through living more and more completely in the moment we learn to allow much of life to live itself without our manipulation or intervention.
A monstrous sea creature dead, washed up on the beach. (Chandra Symbol). When we work to overcome our weaknesses and heal and balance ourselves, the process of doing so automatically brings up everything in ourselves that we need to make contact with.
He followed his breath as it wandered in and out of his body. It explored him like an unknown country, a breath without memory, for every moment it was born anew. And as it discovered his hidden realms he discovered them also, for he rode the breath into old, dark territories, places in his body where memories lay dormant, memories that woke as the breath moved through them, dissolvede them and carried them away in its exhalations. It was the work which the breath had been waiting to perform, patiently, for all these years.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”(141) Omega/Chandra Symbols: Scorpio 16 – 20″ el_id=”1465432803760-59a5e335-0440″]Phase 46. Absolute Certainty (Ayin Resh Yud)
Angel: ARIEL (AH-ree-EL) Perciever and Revealer
Scorpio:16 A scientist using gravity waves to communicate with other universes. (Omega symbol) Manifesting/Experimental
(Degree Angel: ALADIAH (a-LA-dee-YAH) Looks Can Kill: Protection from the Evil Eye, Divine Grace)
This degree can form connections with other levels and realms of existence, and can create changes that are surprising, unlikely, or seemingly impossible. There is always a way to go beyond any limits, and the means to do so are close at hand. A tremendous resourcefulness is found here, for this degree is a gateway to the unexpected.
The Chandra symbol for this degree is “Charon ferries the dead across the river Styx.” The land of the dead across the river Styx is as radically different a place from the realm we live in as the other universes with which the scientist communicates. The question is, how to connect. If you’re ready, and the time is right, connection is easy. But fear, and disbelief in the possibility of connecting are what often keep us from connecting. And so this degree is an ambassador who can help others to feel safe and secure as these transitions are made. It senses the existence of these other places, maybe senses that it has been to them before. It intuitively knows there are realms beyond death, and that no limits are absolute. How very uplifting and consoling this is. And often this degree carries out this function as ambassador without even being aware it is what he or she is doing.
Pleiadian Symbol: The volcano goddess laughing.
Azoth Symbol: In wind and rain a funerary tumulus is seen on the steppes.
Seed degree: Libra 8. A rare type of honey imbued with magical healing powers. (Omega Symbol). Love is the universal healing agent, and its effects open us up to new and ever-before-realized possibilities.
A vast junkyard. (Chandra Symbol). To clear away all the detritus and unnecessary elements from our relating allows us to enter into completely new and unexpected areas of connecting.
Fulfillment degree: Capricorn 19. In the night, someone peering into a dark window. (Omega Symbol). Reaching beyond the known into the unknown puts us in touch with uncertainties, but the also possibility of making intimate connection with beings or information which may be come our allies.
A half-eaten piece of bread. (Chandra Symbol). When we leave behind old realms to encounter new ones, we develop a heightened sense of what we need to nurture and sustain ourselves.
In other worlds they heard his playing with gravity, which came to them as a kind of falling which called out to them like a voice echoing through a dark cave. They received his pattern of waves and quickly understood his code. He wished to speak with them, to know if they really existed. Yes, they replied, we are here, we hear you, and we know you think we are far away, but we say to you, we are here, inside you, one of countless universes that are born every moment out of even the slightest impulse of your imagination, a branch of that infinite tree whose roots and branches are one, and that grows simultaneously in every direction at once, not only the directions of which you can conceive, but infinite others beyond your conception. How may we help you?
Scorpio 17. Empty rooms with perfect walls and floors. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Sensitive
(Degree Angel: LAUVIAH (LO-vee-YAH) Banishying the Remnants of Evil, Victory)
When you create an empty space you make a place for something new to come in, and when you do this continuously you maintain a clear, clean place on which the mind can project its imaginings and thereby come to know itself. This degree has a gift for clearing out the past and for staying prepared for whatever is coming toward it out of the future.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “The mountain abode of a hermit.” There’s an ability here to operate at a remove, for obviously not everyone who has this degree goes off to live in the mountains, but all of them do, to some extent, create that abode around them so that they can do what they do without being so affected by the energies of others and the world of humans in general. It means that they bring a freshness to whatever they encounter, and help others to divest themselves of the mental and physical pollution with which they are always having to contend. How clear this mountain air seems to be, how refreshing, and how much its atmosphere seems to give us greater space and freedom in which to move, just as the empty rooms of the Omega Symbol do.
Pleiadian Symbol: A space alien infant given to a woman to be raised.
Azoth Symbol: The king’s retinue on a secret journey.
Seed degree: Libra 20. In a lush, dark forest a unicorn prancing. (Omega Symbol). Finding purity and clarity deep in the inner richness of ourselves inspires us to make a larger clearer space for ourselves in the outer world.
A man with a single horn coming out of his forehead. (Chandra Symbol). Becoming acutely attuned to the power of our own intuition assists us in removing ourselves from all confusing and disturbing energies so that we may commune with the creative intelligence of the universe.
Fulfillment degree: Aquarius 19. Suddenly a woman laughs, now knowing why. (Omega Symbol). Clearing our lives of that which is unnecessary or merely taking up room gives us a space in which to experience joy in its pure form.
Loud crushing noises as a glacier moves. (Chandra Symbol). Retreating from the conflicts of the world we are then freed so that we may experience our own inner conflicts and allow them to sponaneously unwind – even though this may take time and patience.
Five white cubes have sat on the coast line of the Avradan Sea for centuries. Each one is a hollow cube in which exists a room with perfectly smooth walls and floors, and two large doorless doorways on walls opposite each other.
The cubes are in no patterned arrangement but seem randomly scattered along a half mile of shoreline. They are known to be at least 4000 years old, but show no signs of wear, and exhibit no cracking, pitting or marring of any kind on their surface either inside or outside. The walls are approximately nine inches thick and the rooms vary in dimension, the smallest one being about 10 feet square, the largest 15 feet square. They are referred to as The Rooms of Idaro, named after a small city several miles from them. Only one historian has ever claimed knowledge of their maker, but says he had sworn never to reveal it.
It has been noted that certain people throughout history have become obsessed with visiting these rooms and sleeping in them, claiming they receive something from them which is needed in the extreme, but which they cannot define or even describe.
The Alchemist Serapis says he believes they emit some form of therapeutic energy to everyone, but that only certain people are aware enough of what this is to be consciously attracted to it.
All I know is that when I visited them it was a profound pleasure to sit within, on a cloudy day, and observe for hours the gradually shifting shadows as I listened to the surf.
Scorpio 18. Something waking for a moment in a cocoon. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Receptive
(Degree Angel: HAHAIAH (ha-HA-ee-YAH) Unconditional Love, Refuge, Shelter)
All of existence is the way it is for a reason, and this degree senses this – feels within itself the stirrings of something more expanded which is to come. There is a great sensitivity here, especially to the limitations and restrictions of life. It yearns for something more and its yearnings will persist until it gives in to its impulse to transform.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “People holding hands around a table. One candle is burning in the middle of the table.” We connect, and in this case we need only hands to do it. We don’t need to speak the same language, or agree on anything except holding hands. What is at the center of this simple act of connecting is the candle – the spiritual light. The relationship of this to the Omega Symbol is that the circle of hands are like the cocoon and the candle within it equates with whatever is awakening for a moment in the cocoon. It is not time for a full awakening, but the awakening is near, or else there would not be this momentary awakening.
This degree awakens the spiritual light in others, and does so by the simple act of connection. Done over and over, these little sparks of awakening accumulate, and will finally result in the great awakening.
Pleiadian Symbol: Bells on horses’ feet sounding through falling leaves.
Azoth Symbol: Bees pollinating a sunflower.
Seed degree: Scorpio 2. A lighthouse is moved inland. (Omega Symbol). When we nurture and protect the guiding spiritual light within ourselves we find new energies stirring within us that impel us toward higher consciousness.
A large stately bronze horse. (Chandra Symbol). Connecting with others for the purpose of focusing more intently on the spiritual light puts us in touch with a tremendous inner and enduring power.
Fulfillment degree: Pisces 19. A man tilling a field of flax. (Omega Symbol). The urge toward further growth and to overcome that which restricts us leads to emotional healing and an urge to dedicate the self to whatever will further it.
Palm trees laden with dates. (Chandra Symbol). Through connecting with others for the purpose of expanding the light, we discover much to nourish us and provide us with abundance.
The race of fairies known as the Isindar have no capacity to reproduce of their own, and even though they enjoy all the delights of sensual experience the women among them are incapable of becoming pregnant.
It was Isopus Pan who discovered the secret of why the Isindar do not die out. There is a cave in the far northern wilderness of Peth where dwells a giant spider who captures humans who are compelled there, sometimes over great distances, according to Pan, by some magic force.
This spider, rather than preying on those humans wraps them in a coocoon and hangs them in its cave where they live in suspension for a number of years, finally emerging from their wrappings with fully developed organs of flight and forgetful of their former histories. It is these beings with their beautifully colored and iridescent wings who we have come to know as the Isindar Fairies.
Scorpio 19. An angel kisses a man while he sleeps. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Responsible
(Degree Angel: YEZALEL (YAY-za-LEL) Heaven on Earth, Fidelity, Loyalty, and Allegiance)
There is a tremendous receptivity here to the love coming from higher forces. Even in the midst of darkness this degree carries a subtle light that encourages everything it touches. Even if the person carrying the energy of this degree is mired in negativity, there is always an undercurrent of remembrance of the help and guidance that is always reaching out to us.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A rope going up into the sky.” Here is a thread connecting us to something higher. What is it anchored to? It must be something far above us which we cannot see. It takes a lot of trust to climb the rope. This degree either has a lot of trust and is willing to climb the rope, or is constantly aware of it, constantly tempted by it, until it accepts the challenge. The Chandra Symbol asks the question “will we be safe if we ascend?” and the Omega Symbol answers, “Yes!”
Maybe the angel kisses the man while he sleeps because were he conscious his limiting belief system might not allow the kiss to happen due to not accepting the reality of the angel, or not accepting that he is deserving of such a kiss. Even if he is not consciously aware of this kiss delivered while he sleeps, he takes in its pure loving energy, and this helps him to find the confidence to climb the rope.
Pleiadian Symbol: A bird imitating all the sounds of the jungle.
Azoth Symbol: Unexpected visitors arrive, needing food and shelter.
Seed degree: Scorpio 14. A white marble foot glows pink as it turns into flesh. (Omega Symbol). That which was only a concept moves toward becoming a living reality, which awakens us to the community of higher beings in which we dwell.
Women dressed in black. They are wailing and mourning. (Chandra Symbol). When we allow the energy of sadness to find a way out of our being, we ourselves find a way into higher levels of consciousness. Also, giving into transformation causes the transformation to become ever more pure and intense.
Fulfillment degree: Aries 20. Streets littered with many colors of confetti. (Omega Symbol) Giving in to transformation has a deeply renewing effect on our mind and ability to communicate with others.
An empty courtyard. (Chandra Symbol). When we get above the illusions of this world, even to a small extent, we find an inner sanctum within that allows in light, air, and provides us with a place to re-energize ourselves.
(From Valdarius’ book, “Little Known Facts Concerning Angels.”): “As the mouth is an organ which is used in both speech and the taking in of nourishment it has been noted that those individual’s blessed in their sleep by Angelic Kisses may often go for many months without food, for it seems that nutritive residues from the Angels mouths will, through absorption, provide enough sustenance to the one kissed to last this long. It has also been noted that these individuals, when trying to speak after being kissed can form no words but only open their mouths to emit strange and beautiful melodies, which are words in the language of Angels but untranslatable into the language of humans except by those seers who have long cultivated an acute sense of inner hearing.”
Scorpio 20: A man who carries large sacks of books with him wherever he goes. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Inspired
(Degree Angel: MEBAHEL (May-ba-HEL) Farewell to Arms, Truth, Liberty, and Justice)
There is an accumulation of knowledge here, but can it be used? This degree needs to actualize its wisdom in the immediate world around it, rather than just passively holding what it knows. There is a tendency for the mind to become a barrier to growth and forward movement. The way out of this is to let go of what you think you know, and go spontaneously with where your instinct takes you.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A serpent wrapped around an immense egg.” So much life and wisdom in the books of the Omega Symbol, and so much of the same in the immense egg of the Chandra Symbol. And both the man of the one and the serpent of the other feel as if they have to protect this life and wisdom. Of course wisdom and truth can never be destroyed, but the forms in which they manifest can be – this is what is being protected. We might call this degree “The Guardian of Truth.” Carrying all those books is a burden, but at the right place and the right time this person will be prepared for he will be able to reach in his sacks and pull out what is needed. This is what makes all this inconvenience worth it. And when the egg is ready to hatch, the serpent will then be able to relax his coils and allow the new life to unfold and take wing.
This degree may often do things which seem impractical, or unnecessary, but it senses something others don’t sense, and need to follow these inklings and meet their requirements. Also it needs to develop the ability to go ahead and use what it has, even when it seems there isn’t much outer support for doing so.
Pleiadian Symbol: At the play’s beginning a dark and empty stage.
Azoth Symbol: The diamond shield of a mythical king of old.
Seed degree: Scorpio 26.A witch dressed in black. Her clothes are turning white. (Omega Symbol). Moving toward the light in a grounded way that always keeps physical realities and practicalities in mind, we find ourselves tremendously prepared to help others because of the wealth of information which is ours.
A she-wolf. Her udders full of milk. (Chandra symbol). Contacting an inner primal urge to nurture others we come to realize the profound possibilities we hold within and feel a need to make sure they too are nurtured and protected.
Fulfillment degree: Taurus 20. A man performing a complicated weaving pattern from memory. (Omega Symbol). Feeding our mind with so much information we finally assimilate from it what we most need, and then use that to intuitively engage in the act of creation.
A fork in the road with a blank signpost. (Chandra Symbol). When we are deeply in tune with the wisdom of the life force we realize that it creates its own path rather than having to follow any pre-determined ones.
Salurius Exal, professor, orator and peripetic lecturer could go nowhere without his extensive library, so invented a method of shrinking books, several larg sacks of them hauled in a cart by his donkey, in all comprising several thousand texts. Each book, now only the size of a walnut, had print so fine that it could only be read by the Idani, a race of elves known for their acute vision.
One of these beings, a certain lad named Farquar, accompanied him on his journeys wherever he went and was always ready to search for needed references of quotes, and read to Salurius or his audiences in a high-pitched and piping though nevertheless melodious and perfectly clear voice.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”(142) Omega/Chandra Symbols: Scorpio 21 – 25″ el_id=”1465432823612-1f099016-2c2d”]Phase 47. Global Transformation (Ayin Shin Lamed)
Angel: ASALIAH (a-SA-lee-YAH) Contemplation
Scorpio 21: The wind whirling thousands of loose manuscript pages. (Omega Symbol)Interacting/Experimental
(Degree Angel: HARIEL (HA-ree-EL) Long-Range Vision, Purification)
Chaos can rewrite reality, and sometimes that is a good thing. This degree knows when to let chaos have its due. We think that things need to be prioritized in a certain way – that’s our story. But when the plot of our story get ripped apart and re-ordered, a new story can emerge, which reveals new and unsuspected aspects of the self.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A pair of glasses with no lenses in them.” This degree is about seeing directly, although, as the lens-less glasses show, it’s not that simple. Because the lenses are missing the focus here is on the frames and not on what we’re seeing, and the fact of the matter is that it is how we frame things that determines what we see. And the more we look beyond the transparent lenses which are distorting what we’re seeing – often without us even knowing it – the close we will come to seeing the truth.
By shuffling all the pages, the wind in the Omega Symbol allows us to see the manuscript in a new way, a way that does not follow the usual sequence of cause and effect – a way that may seem fragmented, but which allows us to put it together in new ways. This degree is about being aware of how we limit what we see, and through a renewal of our looking finding new ways of seeing and thereby learning more about what we’re looking at than we ever thought we could.
Pleiadian Symbol: An Egyptian pharaoh wanders into New York City.
Azoth Symbol: Small animals searching the forest for food.
Seed degree: Sagittarius 8. Experts arguing over the authenticity of a painting. (Omega Symbol). Debating over the nature of reality leads eventually to the realization of alternate possibilities and the potentially freeing nature of chaos.
The harsh landscape of the moon with a black sky. The earth is not visible. (Chandra Symbol). To explore the most hidden areas of the subconscious leads to a realization of the limitations we place on all experience, and a desire to free ourselves from their strictures.
Fulfillment degree: Gemini 20. Night in the museum, shadows seem to be moving in the paintings. (Omega Symbol). When we allow our mind the freedom to freely invent we see all sorts of possibilities in those things which we formerly thought unchangeable.
A bull stung by a scorpion. (Chandra Symbol). When we become aware of the limitations we place on our experience, our dogmatic mind-set is pierced by the force of creativity and transformation and hence opens up into a myriad of new realizations.
Taras Bahir, mystic of Aab had worked for many years channelling a book which, once finished, he found to be incomprehensible. On his way to the tower of Serapis where he hoped to show the manuscript to the old alchemist who was notoriously clever at solving mysteries, he was assailed by a wind which tore the manuscript from him and scattered it through the forest. Carefully he retrieved it, page by page, over 2000 of them.
When he finally arrived that night at the abode of Serapis it was found that the pages were now in an order which clearly detailed several centuries of the ancient Aabian history which had formerly been unknown to historians.
Scorpio 22: A mountain of old shoes. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Sensitive
(Degree Angel: HAKAMIAH (he-KE-mee-YAH) Dumping Depression, Loyalty)
This degree has weathered so many journeys, has been to so many places, and not only have widely different paths been traveled, but the same paths have also been traveled over and over. It comes to the point that there is no longer any place to go. The shoes may be removed, for we find we have arrived, and the destination all along has been ourselves.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A rug woven out of rags.” The clothes are our outer coverings, hence, how we appear outwardly. These outer appearances keep wearing out, so we get new ones and they wear out and eventually we have a bunch of rags. All these appearances are supports for our understanding, that is, something for it to stand on, for Pisces rules the feet and signifies understanding. The other major covering of the body, outside of clothes, is shoes, which show up in the Omega Symbol. So much has worn out. Doesn’t it wear you out? No, it only wears out the part of you that wasn’t real to begin with – the real you is eternal and can’t wear out.
Its good to wear out all these outer coverings – go ahead, wear them out, use them up – they are truly grist for understanding’s mill.
Pleiadian Symbol: Lurkers waiting to observe a bird once thought to be mythical.
Azoth Symbol: A man hears an excited message with clarity and patience.
Seed degree: Scorpio 26. A witch dressed in black, her clothes are turning white. (Omega Symbol). When we first ground ourselves we are able to then take in more of the light and then can cast off old forms of understanding so that we may take on newer and clearer ones.
A she-wolf. Her udders full of milk. (Chandra Symbol). Our need to nurture others impels us to get beyond the limits and restrictions of all appearances, and to transform them into supports for our understanding of the truth of who we really are.
Fulfillment degree: Cancer 20. A keyboard which plays colors. (Omega Symbol). So many ways to understand things have been moved through and worn out – due to their limitations – until we arrive eventually at a glorious synthesis of harmonious, living, and vibrant joy that colors our whole life with its beauty.
Many brightly colored tropical fish. (Chandra Symbol). When we are able to derive support from all we have ever been, we enter a realm where we find the expression of truth unique to every situation, and constantly varied in its manifestation.
Tura Mountain in the south of Aab is the place where traditionally all the people of Aab take their worn out shoes, which they leave there on rocks, under trees and in any places they might care to do so. Visiting the mountain one is awestruck with the number of shoes one finds there, for it seems that Aab, which is a sparsely populated realm could not have spawned so many denizens, even given the great length of its history.
No one is quite sure of the exact reason for the time honored tradition of shoe burial, but Zingar Reth gives the most plausible and generally accepted explanation. He says that feet signify understanding, and since the soul comes into the physical plane to advance its understanding, it is where it touches the earthly realm, mainly with the feet, that generates this symbology.
The number of potential understandings are endless, and understanding of one sort amplifies all others, hence the urge to bring together understandings so that their multifarious nature may come ever more closely to reflect a wholeness.
Scorpio 23. A man repairing damaged inlays of precious stones on the Taj Mahal. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Receptive
(Degree Angel: LAVIAH (LAH-vee-YAH) Great Escape, Revelation)
This degree is very intent on protecting what it feels is of value. It can be patiently obsessive and one-pointed. There’s a selflessness here, for that which is protected is not just for the self, but for the world, ultimately. The Guardian of Memories wants to keep alive the most exalted aspects of the past, by rekindling their wondrous fire to uplift us all.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A collection of dolls.” This degree is into the subtleties of how things look and feel, rather than whether they make sense or fit into the protocols of logic and reason. It is very aware of how everything is supposed to be according to what other humans have to say about it, and is also aware that these outer forms are no more than outer forms, and that what humans have to say about anything are no more than opinions. Here is great ability to imagine, to fantasize, and by doing so to get back into the real essence of things, which, if followed faithfully, can clear away all distortions and bring human energy once again back into alignment with nature.
Pleiadian Symbol: In twilight a forest alive with all sorts of creatures, some physical, others denizens from other planes.
Azoth Symbol: Trees ripped from the ground by a violent storm.
Seed degree: Capricorn 2. A painting which causes those who see it to become silent. (Omega Symbol). Finding catalysts that heighten self awareness helps to restore our attunement to our spiritual self and its beauties and wonders.
A wisdom tooth that has been removed from someone’s mouth. It is plated with gold. (Chandra Symbol). To realign ourselves with our innate wisdom helps us to better understand the nature of our own identity and to realize that we may change it if we so desire.
Fulfillment degree: Leo 20. An herb which, if over-consumed, causes one to die of laughter. (Omega Symbol). To honor the past and protect whatever in it is beautiful and noble is a wonderful endeavor, as long as we do not become overly attached to history. When we allow the beauties of the past to recreate themselves in the present so that they shine forth in the moment, we are able to experience the joy of the Now.
A black pearl hidden in an oyster. (Chandra Symbol). To fantasize about so many different types of people and so many various personalities leads us to delve into a deep and mysterious question: Who, exactly, are we?
The Taj Mahal serves as one of the primary connecting points between the realms of Earth and Aab. And even though the builder of the Taj Mahal knew not the name of Aab, it was his subconscious desire to connect these realms that inspired him to build this most glorious edifice.
For centuries the same family who created the inlays on the Taj are the ones who pass on to their sons and daughters the skills to keep it in repair. And in repairing these designs not only they are repaired, but the connection to the realm of Aab is also rekindled and kept alive. Of course the Taj is not the only connecting point to Aab, and certainly not the only connecting point on earth which connects to realms other than Aab, these locations of connection being multifarious. And so the streams between realms continue to flow between each other, enlivening all realms with the magic of their waters.
Scorpio 24. Gold turning back into lead. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Responsible
(Degree Angel: CALIEL (KA-lee-EL) Fertility, Justice)
This degree realizes that life is an ongoing process of constant change, and so any goal is never an end in itself. What is important is what we do with what we have, how we use it, and not the mere act of obtaining it. That which is desired and acquired is eventually lost or rendered worthless unless it is recycled in the service of evolution.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Coca bushes growing wild in the Andes Mountains.” The coca bush yields substances which, if ingested help one to sustain oneself physically at high altitudes, signifying that this degree knows how to maintain energy at a high level, and how to survive and thrive as it goes to even higher levels.
In the Omega Symbol the lead that has been transmuted into gold cannot sustain the vibrational level of gold – it obviously has not been stabilized at that level – and so it drops back down into the vibration of lead. The point is, when we make changes, we cannot live in that changed state until we can bring enough of ourselves into it to be in it more than in the old state. That’s where chewing the coca leaves come in – to help us attune to a new atmosphere and a new way of being.
In traditional alchemy when there was a failure all the old texts tell the alchemist to go back and do it again – to keep trying, because as you get better and better at making any transformation, eventually the change will steady itself and hold to the new way. This is a very persistent degree, a degree of hope, and of knowing that whatever it takes is exactly what it’s going to expend to move forward.
Pleiadian Symbol: Visitors to the cave of a holy man.
Azoth Symbol: Healers returning to a place where they may recharge their energy.
Seed degree: Capricorn 14. A woman restoring an ancient textile. (Omega Symbol). Through healing the fabric of our lives we become aware that importance ultimately does not exist in just one part of it, but in the whole of it, and the way it relates to the whole of the universe, and ultimately, in the process of the whole.
Beads carved from human bone. (Chandra Symbol). In touching the lives of all who came before us we can find sustenance to continue our own journey into higher territory.
Fulfillment degree: Virgo 20. Worshipers circumambulating a sacred stone. (Omega Symbol). When we realize that every step of every process is an integral part of the whole, we come to honor the physical for the great opportunities it provides us for understanding and growth.
The expanse of the Himalayas in the distance. (Chandra Symbol). Finding what we need close at hand, we learn to use it for our own support, which helps to keep us focused on higher spiritual realities.
In the Museum of Peth there is displayed a ring fashioned of a most rare and peculiar metal. Its ore was mined in the Eluthar region, famous for its opals. It was there, among the densest lode of opal deposits ever discovered that tiny gold nuggets were found also, of a strange, faintly shimmering color which was thought to have been caused by millenia of exposure to the opals.
When the alchemist Kanir Rendar fashioned a ring out of these gold nuggets it was found to attain to a state of pure gold at every New Moon, and by two weeks later during the Full Moon to have turned to pure lead.
For many years it was worn by Princess Zarabar of Dandria, the famous eccentric, who used its magic to delight and surprise her companions, for by every New Moon the ring caused her to appear as a beautiful young girl, and then by the time the Moon had become full she had turned into a wizened old crone.
Scorpio 25. A composer of simple melodies. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Inspired
(Degree Angel: LEUVIAH (LOO-vee-YAH) Dialing God, Expansive Intelligence/Fruition)
This degree has a simple and direct way of expressing itself that is beautiful, memorable, and which can make a vivid impression. It has to do with the removal or reduction of complexities that then allows the true essence of a thing to shine through. This gives the world a clarity that is revealing and refreshing – a window into the realm of spirit.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A doctor experimenting on himself with new drugs.” Here is a doctor who is utterly dedicated to his patients and wants to know firsthand the effects of his treatments. There’s much fearlessness here, as well as curiosity, together with a determination to innovate. This symbol seems so drastic compared to its Omega Symbol counterpart, though the Omega Symbol makes us aware that there is a side to this symbol of joy and beauty. The simple melodies are healing and magical formulas in the form of note sequences that summon the elementals and angels of healing.
The doctor of the Chandra Symbol is protected by his loving intent, which surrounds him with powerful nature spirits.
Pleiadian Symbol: A lost knight finds a hidden doorway into a mountain.
Azoth Symbol: An unknown language is being decoded.
Seed degree: Capricorn 26. A castle made of clouds appears at sunset. (Omega Symbol). Witnessing the beautiful and imaginative imagery of nature as it passes inspires us to express ourselves in a limpid way that touches the hearts of others.
A solitary grave in the midst of a cornfield. (Chandra Symbol). Hidden energies in ourselves that need to be released impel us, eventually, to experiment with new experiences in an attempt to find new roads to healing ourselves.
Fulfillment degree: Libra 20.In a lush dark forest a unicorn prancing. (Omega Symbol). The simple and beautiful melody that spontaneously comes from us takes us to a place of rest and rejuvenation where we meet the purity and truth of ourselves.
A man with a single horn coming out of his forehead. (Chandra Symbol). The courage to try new things for the purpose of bringing healing into the world ultimately have a powerfully potentizing effect on our intuition.
The Codex of Aramono in the Library of Peth consists of a line of musical notes written on 13 staves to a page and densely covering 1706 pages. The notes are separated into groups periodically by a red line, into what is assumed to be separate melodies, the longest of these being 27 notes and the shortest 8.
Alchemists have been researching these notes for many centuries and have found that some sequences call particular birds, reptiles, insects and other fauna, while many other sequences evoke a different strong emotion in the one hearing it, that appears to be unique to that sequence. Other sequences will cause the same dream to be had the next night by anyone who hears it. The diverse and varied effects of many of the sequences have been recorded, but the uses of most of the others is still unknown.
The Lady Alchemist Serita has devised a system of therapy whereby she picks certain of these sequences to heal her patients. According to her the selection is made on a purely intuitive basis, though no one else who has attempted the same procedure has ever been able to duplicate her extreme success in this protocol.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”(143) Omega/Chandra Symbols: Scorpio 26 – 30″ el_id=”1465432840367-d37b8cb8-3931″]Phase 48. Unity (Mem Yud Hay)
Angel: Mihael (MIH-a-EL) Fertility, Fruitfulness
Scorpio 26. A witch dressed in black. Her clothes are turning white. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Experimental
(Degree Angel: PAHALIAH (pa-HA-lee-YAH) Victory Over Addictions, Redemption)
This degree can completely immerse itself in whatever it is doing, but never allows itself to get stuck in one way of looking at life or one way of being. It’s willing to try anything and everything, but rather than doing this randomly there is a complete immersion in something before moving on. In this way it comes to a deep understanding through having experienced the polarities at work in anything.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A she-wolf. Her udders full of milk.” This symbol might allude to the she-wolf that suckled Romulus and Remus, the founders of Rome. If you are denied nurturing from your parents, you may always seek it from nature in a wilder, purer form. The she-wolf has food to give, and it may be given to her cubs, or to other creatures in need of it. This degree may signify situations of giving and receiving that are unusual, unexpected, experimental, and potentially fruitful for both the giver and the receiver. The black clothes of the witch of the Omega Symbol are heavy, for black is a heavy color. But her clothes are turning white, becoming lighter, just as when the she-wolf gives her milk she too will become lighter.
The witch is moving from a yin, or passive state, into a yang, or active state. Her black absorbs all the colors, but when she has completely turned white it will reflect all the colors. This degree is heavy with food to give, heavy with what it has absorbed, and needs to emanate what it is full of, to give what it has, without letting worries about who gets it or what they do with it or what they think about it to stop the giving.
Pleiadian Symbol: At night the fires of wanderers dot the planes.
Azoth Symbol: An old ruler decides to turn his kingdom over to his daughter.
Seed degree: Aquarius 8. A man experiences much pain and discomfort as wings sprout on his back. (Omega Symbol). Overcoming the tremendous drag of habits and their intimate connection to limiting beliefs we gradually and inevitably lighten our burden, taking every step at the exact moment we are ready to.
A book, the words in it keep changing. (Chandra Symbol). To go back and continually rethink things can be a profoundly enriching experience that fills us with new energies and gleanings that we feel a need to give to others as a form of nurturing.
Fulfillment degree: Scorpio 20. A man who carries large sacks of books with him wherever his goes. (Omega Symbol). When we ourselves become light nothing else that is truly of value ever seems like a burden.
A serpent wrapped around an immense egg. (Chandra Symbol) Feeling a deep need to nurture others guides us toward an understanding of the mysterious and forever self-renewing fountain of life, and the spontaneous, instantaneous wisdom it offer to those ready to receive it.
There is a witch who lives in the forests of Aab who keeps her name secret, and who is known for wearing shadows rather than clothes. To stabilze these shadows so that they may be depended on as protection from the elements she has devised a way of spinning them into an exceedingly fine, dark thread and then weaving them into a cloth that, though nothing could be more thin and insubstantial is utterly opaque and of an engulfing blackness.
And though she is rarely seen and quite secretive, those who report the occasional sighting of her say that as these garments of hers have worn threadbare over the centuries they have become more and more stained with glows and other various and diverse lights that have built up into such brightness that she has chosen to live in a cave to conceal her effulgence from passing travellers and those who may wander through the forest.
Scorpio 27. At a country fair, some people are clothed, others are nude, all wear flowers. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Sensitive
(Degree Angel: NELCHAEL (NEL-ka-EL) Eradicate Plague, Ardent Desire to Learn)
Love and joy and a deep connection with nature are of this degree. It has the ability to bring primitive elements back into society, elements that are warming and emoting and very enriching. It accepts life as it is and people as they are and is looking to create a celebrational communion wherein all people can be themselves with no sense of threat or feeling that they need to conform.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Three blue robin eggs.” In Kabbalah, three is the number of Jupiter, the planet of growth, enthusiasm, and generosity. Blue is the color of Sagittarius, the sign of transcendence, and of perceiving the wholeness of life. These three robin eggs signify a vision of the wholeness and completeness of life, expressed purely and simply. All difficulties, all obstructions and frustrations are seen through, or brushed aside by this vision of the completeness of life.
This degree accepts what is hidden (the bodies of the clothed people in the Omega symbol), as well as what is revealed (the nude people), the flowers they wear are their loves and joys, and this is what unites them.
It seems that this degree cannot be negative, at worst it might only lie unused within one’s being. But even at that, like the robin eggs, it will inevitably hatch – and its birth can antidote much negativity.
Pleiadian Symbol: A troup of strange dreams enters the sleeping city.
Azoth Symbol: A piercing noise startles someone out of a reverie.
Seed degree: Aquarius 20. Wind carving sand patterns in the desert. (Omega Symbol). Letting communicating happen naturally and spontaneously we are able to relate to others with whatever level of formality, distance, or intimacy that feels required in the moment.
A fine silk thread strung across a chasm. (Chandra Symbol). Tuning in to a fine, subtle, and intuitive level of communication we find ourselves able to impart a sense of new life, hope, and transcendence to others.
Fulfillment degree: Sagittarius 20. A clear yellow gem fallen from heaven. (Omega Symbol). To relate to others in an atmosphere of openness and joy that leaves behind all fear induces us to spontaneously see the beautiful and eternal purposefulness of the universe.
The changing of water into wine. (Chandra Symbol). Simple hope and an innocent and effortless connection to life becomes a path to the healing of emotions and the creation of miracles.
The Flower Festival is celebrated every year in Aristar, a small village north of Peth, for it is in this region at the time of the first New Moon after the beginning of spring that flowers from all times of the year bloom for a short while in immense profusion. It is said that this is the work of Flora, queen of the flower spirits, who induces this blooming so that celebrants may have flowers to wear during the Festival’s three days of revelling. It is she also who is responsible for the flowers losing none of their freshness during this time, for the blooms worn by the participants neither wilt nor fade in the slightest until the Festival’s end.
It is traditional for some of the revellers to wears clothes and others to go naked, depending on their desires, for the festival is an affirmation of the beauty of both the hidden and the revealled.
Scorpio 28. A man who speaks only in meter and rhyme. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Receptive
(Degree Angel: YEIAYEL (YAY-ah-YEL) Stop Fetal Attraction, Fame, Renown)
This degree turns everything into poetry. Nothing is average or prosaic unless it is made or seen that way. This degree has a way of lifting any and all experience to a higher level by finding the beauty in it. This is often done unconsciously, but even if the person is not aware of it, the effect is still transporting, and revealing of the cosmic aspect of all phenomena
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A building: the only part of it left is the cornerstone.” Everything passes away eventually, even something as seemingly durable as a building. The cornerstone marks the place it was – it preserves the memory of that structure. Our imagination may rebuild that building, and/or we may actually rebuild it in physical reality, or build a structure that is different but in some way like it, or which bears some of the essence of the the older, defunct form. The heaviness and endurance of the cornerstone seems so different from the man who speaks only in meter and rhyme, yet so much poetry grows out of older forms that are not much read anymore, and poetry tends to condense language, just as the cornerstone is a condensation of the energy that was the building.
This degree has a gift for essentialization and for what we might call “reconceptualization,” that is, the ability to rethink and rebuild things, and all for the purpose of allowing the soul to take on a new vehicle of expression.
Realize, too, that the man of the Omega Symbol is not carefully writing and revising his poetry, but is expressing himself directly and spontaneously in poetic form, that is, thinking on his feet.
Pleiadian Symbol: A man sleeping in a forest wakes to the distant fanfare of fairy trumpets.
Azoth Symbol: A man learning how a vast library is organized.
Seed degree: Pisces 2. From deep in the earth the sound of a waterfall. (Omega Symbol). From the depths of feeling arises a rhythm that flows out as the soul’s music given voice to.
A man turning into a werewolf. (Chandra Symbol). Merging with our instinctive, animal self, we are able to align our being with that which is most basic and essential.
Fulfillment degree: Capricorn 20. A host of angels in conference. (Omega Symbol). To allow all of our communication to be suffused with beauty attunes us to the synthesizing and harmonizing forces of the universe.
Many different perfumes carried by a breeze. (Chandra Symbol). When we are able to return to the basic impulses that have given rise to all the constructs of our life, we clear our consciousness in such a way that we are able to perceive the play of subtleties all around us.
“The Far Islands” is an epic poem of 30,000 lines written, or recited, rather, by the Poet Elorious. Knowing that he would create this work – but not where or when — he spent ten years in preparation for its emergence by speaking only in meter and rhyme.
And then, on April 18th of the year 3641 he attended a feast at King Eran the VI’s palace and was asked to entertain in the evening. Spontaneously he began telling the story of Aandar and the Far Islands, which was continued far into the night, and then over the next few evenings as well, a scribe renowned for his swiftness at recording words in a shorthand of his own invention writing each line down as it was spoken.
If not for this amazingly adept scribe, whose name was never recorded by the historians, Elorious’ magnificent poem would have never come down to us.
Scorpio 29. Through a doorway, nothing but empty, blue sky in all directions. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Responsible
(Degree Angel: MELAHEL (MAY-la-HEL) Sharing the Flame, Healing Capacity)
This degree opens doorways to greater freedom and expanded realities. It has a deep awareness of all limitations and a sense of the way out of them, and even if the step through a door into a greater reality cannot be taken at a particular time, at least there can be a looking through that door – a seeing into what is beyond so it may be appreciated and possibly entered into later. We might call this degree “The Freeing Power of Death.”
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “ An umbilical cord.” when there is an intensity and fullness of connection there can be intimate and profound giving and receiving. Umbilical cords were made to be severed, leading to the complete freedom within the universe that is signified by the “blue sky in all directions.”
The severing of the umbilical cord can be a joyous release, or it can be terrifying and alienating, just as the blue sky can feel wonderfully open and free, or cold and empty. Its all about whether or not we’re projecting love or fear onto the situation.
Pleiadian Symbol: After an earthquake priceless artifacts are being carried away from a museum.
Azoth Symbol: Messages hidden in all the measurements of an ancient city.
Seed degree: Pisces 14 Unconcerned with how he is going to escape, a man explores an infinite library. (Omega Symbol). If we give in completely to our curiosities and obsessions we find that eventually they play themselves out and leave us free.
After a feast, much uneaten foods remains on the plates. (Chandra Symbol). When we are truly aware of the abundance of the universe, we grow beyond any current forms of dependence.
Fulfillment degree: Aquarius 20. Wind carving sand patterns in the desert. (Omega Symbol). When we realize the freedom and openness in which we dwell, we are able to be relaxed and gentle in our communication and searching.
A fine silk thread strung across a chasm. (Chandra Symbol). When we realize that we will be able, ultimately, to overcome all dependencies we open to the perception of all the subtleties of connections we may make that have the power to span any and all gulfs.
(From the book “Strange Entrances,” by Ethelric the Dubious): “A hidden doorway was discovered by accident in the study of a certain deceased Alchemist whose relatives have requested that his name remain anonymous. When this doorway was opened there was found to be nothing beyond it but blue, cloudless sky to be seen in all directions. The sky was competely devoid of features – no Sun, Moon or passing birds marred its perfection, and even when night came the sky beyond the door remained the same blue.
“A certain bold investigator actually stepped through the door and found himself freed of gravity as he floated in space. When he turned back he saw the door and the room he had come from, but with no other supportive edifice surrounding it. Swimming through blue to see what was behind the door he found nothing but more blue. When he returned to the door and stepped back into the study he glowed with a faint blue radiance which lasted for several hours.
“News of the room spread fast and excited crowds came to see it, and can attest to its reality, though it faded in just three days, as if it had been nothing more than a flower, leaving behind it a wall of stone.”
Scorpio 30. Former reflections appearing on a mirror. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Inspired
(Degree Angel: HAHEUIAH (ha-HOO-ee-YAH) Overcoming Jealousy, Protection)
we have seen or experienced persists in an eternal realm – since the past is still happening, still accessible, and because there is no end to parallel universes, everything is capable of being changed. This is a degree of pure creativity that draws on any and all sources as material for what it creates. It is extremely perceptive and receptive and whatever it takes in it continually reconfigures into new patterns from which new experiences and understandings can be drawn.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A very dark sky, but no rain.” Usually water is below earth,due to gravity. Here it hovers above earth. Will the rain fall on us, or will it move on and fall on someone else? If this rain does not fall, later, another rain will. And when the clouds blot out to a degree the brightness of the Sun, which signifies the conscious mind, we are able to feel what we feel more clearly, for the rational function is not so much present to equivocate, justify, or explain. This is an ominous symbol, but what it is an omen of may be something wonderful, for rains cause seeds to open up and plants to grow. Like all of the last degrees of each sign this degree is highly complicated and multileveled. It feels many energies at work, and can guess what is to come, but never knows for sure. It knows that nothing is ever completely what it seems, and may even be completely what it doesn’t seem. When it quits second-guessing situations, and fully learns that its feelings of foreboding are solely its own projections, then it can enter fully into the exciting instability and creativity of the moment, and flow inspirationally with whatever happens.
Pleiadian Symbol: A man in a death’s head mask sitting quietly in a dark tree.
Azoth Symbol: An alchemist carefully weighing the ingredients of a formula then casually throwing in other ones.
Seed degree: Pisces 26. A writer endlessly revising his work. (Omega Symbol). To go over and over something can distort seeking what exists in the here and how. On the other hand, refining and perfecting whatever we are doing can help us to learn from the past and to see how it has contributed to the growth of our consciousness.
The aurora borealis. (Chandra Symbol). To have seen the wonders of the spiritual heights frees us from any fears of what may seem ominous or threatening in the moment.
Fulfillment degree: Pisces 20. A truck stop specializing in gnostic texts. (Omega Symbol). Stored knowledge and memories, when needing to be healed will find a way to break into our field of consciousness in ways that often go beyond taken-for-granted notions of what should be, and will interrupt our current tasks and focus with new, profound and unexpected insights.
A perfect black cube sits alone in the desert. (Chandra symbol). A complete surrender to the processes of change and transformation will make us deeply aware of our limitations and self-imposed isolation, which can be, ultimately, a good thing if we allow this realization to reconnect us with the light.
The mirror was found among the effects of a certain old duchess of Aab when she died. At first it seemed like a normal mirror, but the one who bought it came to realize, after experimenting with it, that the mirror was shy, but that once it came to know and like certain individuals, its owner being one of them, it would show its former reflections – faces that had once looked into it, for instance, or what seemed to be the passing scenery along roads on which the mirror had travelled during its owner’s journeys.
And as the mirror got to know her better and grew more fond of her it seemed also to delight in making her appear young and beautiful, even as she grew into old age, and enjoyed as well adorning the faces of those it detested with warts, wrinkles, horny protuberances, and a host of other uncomely distortions.[/vc_toggle]
