Phase 26. Order from Chaos (Hey Aleph Aleph)
Angel: HAAIAH (HA-ee-YAH) Political Science and Ambition
Leo 6. Hidden photos of a deceased woman are discovered. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Experimental
(Degree Angel Name: Nithael (NIT-ha-EL) The Death of Death, Rejuvenation and Eternal Youth)
The past is continually revealing new things about itself as we grow in consciousness and change our perspective on it. You have the ability to shed new light on old truths, and to express taken-for-granted information in such a manner that it comes alive in a new way to people. You help others to see how the past has shaped their personality, and how it can be renewed and reshaped.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A hamster running in a treadmill.” Here we find sheer impulsiveness and a compelling need to exert oneself. There’s little thought about the future or even the significance of its actions, but rather an unquestioning compliance with what it’s instincts are wanting it to do. The simplicity of this can be refreshing, and can help to stir others to action. “I am what I am and I do what I do” is the attitude, and this tends to be expressed in a healthy, direct way. Even within limited or restricted situations, or when thwarted, (I’m presuming the hamster is in a cage), this individual is unflagging, and keeps busy.
Sometimes there is also a tendency to go over and over the same territory, but rather than this causing frustration it often results in seeing things in a new way, for such repetition can lead to a deep comprehension and assimilation of what’s being reviewed. In this way the Chandra Symbol connects to the new photographs of the woman in the Omega Symbol, where new revelations come to light concerning something that one presumed as passed and finished.
Pleidian Symbol: A woman decked out in beautiful finery conversing with another woman who is totally naked.
Azoth Symbol: A glowing meteor speeding through the atmosphere.
Seed degree: Gemini 5. Two people calling to each other across a wide, deep canyon. (Omega Symbol). When we deeply connect with others – especially when it is difficult – we always gain some form of new perspective – which often goes beyond the biases we formerly held.
An immense tortoise with jewels inlaid on its back. (Chandra Symbol). Glimpsing the spiritual treasures we carry with us fills us with hope and enthusiasm and spurs us on to fresh efforts.
Fulfillment degree: Virgo 11. The smell of ancient perfume as an Egyptian tomb is opened. (Omega Symbol). Through gaining new perspectives on the past we are able to psychically merge with its atmosphere and hence understand it more deeply.
A four-year-old girl dressed as a nurse. (Chandra Symbol). Anxious to exercise our powers we innocently plunge into situations, which, though they may seem beyond our capacity, our naivete allows us to perform beautifully.
The photos found in a secret drawer disturbed him at first, for they were nothing like his memory of her. He had fixed pictures of her in his mind, but these newly discovered ones seemed as if they came from another life, one he was not privy to. They seems to assail his own inner pictures, which he felt a need to protect.
Until he realized that she, like all others, was not one person but many, each being a forest of people. And so in his imagination he made room for a new her, and left space, as well, for other versions of her to arise, if they so desired..
Leo 7. The barking of a dog echoes across a moonlit landscape. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Sensitive
(Degree Angel: Mebahiah (me-BA-hee-YAH) Thought Into Action, Intellectual Lucidity
The sharpness of a needle determines how easily it can penetrate skin, and by the same token your penetrating but subtle insights can penetrate the consciousness of those who experience them, and work on them in ways that were unexpected. Using this power for the good of others is your challenge.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A very weak cup of tea.” The barking of the dog permeates the landscape just as the tea does the water. The tea is very bland and subtle – to some it would seem like nothing rearkable. To those who tune in to the faint flavor and fragrance there may be a wonderous experience to savor. The experience of this is cosmic and mysterious, and is felt by this degree to symbolize far more than it outwardly is. The energy of this is much like homeopathy, where, as a substance is reduced physically, its vibration is magnified.
The barking dog’s echoes in the Omega symbol are calling forth deep emotions, as signified by the Moon, and the feelings permeate the landscape, creating an atmosphere that evokes the sublime. And so this degree can be deceptively simple and bland, and yet evoke the grandeur of the infinite.
Pleiadian Symbol: A man’s astral body travels into the sky to see the stars more closely.
Azoth Symbol: A pattern used to generate energy.
Seed degree: Gemini 17. Deep in a cave a large albino snake. (Omega Symbol). Feeling the pure power of wisdom within, our instincts feel an irresistible urge to voice it.
A magic coin that has only one side. (Chandra Symbol). Sensing the illusory nature of the phenomenal world we leave it behind us more and more and enter a realm of imaginative subtleties that more clearly express spiritual realities.
Fulfillment degree: Libra 11. In a Tibetan monastery hundreds of candles burning. (Omega Symbol). To feel the intensity of our emotional yearning and to allow ourselves to express it spontaneously leads us eventually to a desire to focus the spiritual light in the darkness around us and to do what we can to keep it burning.
Tea leaves that form a pentagram. (Chandra Symbol). Through experiencing the subtleties of the energies around us we come to recognize patterns of harmony inherent in them that weave them all together into a whole and living pattern.
In the night he arose to look out the window at the frost-covered fields where the moon shone, the barking of a dog billowing through its own echoes like a wraith crossing into the reflection of a cloudy mirror.
And the barking, as it continued turned the whole night into a dog’s gigantic, hollow throat, through which cold billows of barking rolled, the moonlight, having just newly fallen to earth, surprised at what she found there, filling her with such noise.
Leo 8. An old medicine man with eyes like a snake’s. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Receptive
(Degree Angel: Poyel (poi-YEL) Dispelling Anger, Fortune and Support)
You have the ability to mesmerize other people, to capture there attention and compel them to listen to you. At worst, though, you may fear your own power and try to supress it. You need to maintain your center – focus on what you want to communicate, and allow others to react as they are going to without trying to control how they take in their perceptions of you.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A young woman sits at a piano and improvises beautiful music.” Here is an ability to be spontaneous, and if a mistake is made, or if inspiration falters this degree just flows onward, and doesn’t allow the inner critic to interrupt the flow. This requires a great deal of focus, like the penetrating eyes of the Omega Symbol. And when this degree allows what is inside to flow out, it encourages others to do the same – to connect with their own inner wisdom and creativity. When the ego can be moved out of the way for awhile – which this degree has the power to do – wonderful and surprising things can come into being.
Pleiadian Symbol: A new religion re-embodying ancient principles.
Azoth Symbol: Bright flashes of electricity flashing through the atmosphere.
Seed degree: Gemini 29. A biologist doing intensive research on mold. (Omega Symbol). Through looking into the deepest subtleties of life we are able to see the wisdom inherent in everything around us.
A garden planted solely with shade plants. (Chandra Symbol). Letting go of having to have a conscious purpose and reason for living we are abler to be spontaneous and to express our creativity in an unselfconscious manner.
Fulfillment degree: Scorpio 11. Shadows of trees laying over a vast lawn. (Omega Symbol). Looking deeply into the world we perceive with our spiritual vision the subtle and ephemeral patterns of meaning and purpose that overlay everything.
Gnarled twisted trees against an overcast sky. (Chandra Symbol). When we allow what is in us to come forth spontaneously, we come inevitably to inner places which need healing. (Or, on another level, the expression of beauty always desires to be more than just mechanical and superficial, and when it is sincere and genuine will always draw us toward exploring our shadow side).
When you looked into his eyes all you saw was yourself, but at first you couldn’t understand what you were looking at, for the shadows inside you that were so much a part of you and so familiar as to be hidden, were now seen in his eyes.
Some found this frightening and shunned him. Others wanted to enter those eyes, or at least peer into the darkness there, which seemed as no other darkness ever seen before, and yet like an ancient home to which they were finally and unexpectedly returning
Leo 9. A gigantic sleeping Buddha carved of stone.(Omega Symbol) Interacting/Responsible
(Degree Angel: Nemamiah (ne-MAM-mee-YAH) Listening to Your Soul, Discernment)
You have a very great ability to just be yourself, and simple as this seems, it oddly enough can cause problems, for the question is, who are you, really? What seems so obvious can actually be quite unknowable, for what appears as your surface can only reflect the tiniest part of your essence. The truth is, your image is just an image, but one that everyone, including yourself, can learn much from, for it fosters greater self-awareness.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A solid gold egg.” Here is an acute awareness of perfection, which, by contrast also invokes an equally acute awareness of what is wrong and where the flaws and inadequacies lie. This degree deeply senses what furthers evolution and what thwarts it. Any tendency here to idealize the self will result in suffering. But any tendency to attune more and more finely to the eternal perfection that has always been within will nourish both the growth of self and others.
Pleiadian Symbol: Molten glass being wrought into fantastic forms.
Azoth Symbol: An elaborate assemblage of symbols turns into a world.
Seed degree: Cancer 11. A hidden treasure waiting to be found. (Omega Symbol). Knowing that all we need is stored within we are able to be at peace with the way life is – whatever it is.
Monstrosities in glass jars at a side show. (Chandra Symbol). From experiencing seeming failures we come to a deeper and deeper understanding of life and a realization that everything has meaning and purpose.
Fulfillment degree: Sagittarius 11. A woman perceives her seemingly mundane world as beautiful and mysterious. (Omega Symbol). As attachment is let go of we come to see beyond the illusions that desires have created and perceive instead the spiritual ramifications of everything.
A string of pearls. (Chandra Symbol). When we allow ourselves to completely and truly be ourselves, life is ultimately softened and simplified in such a way that we perceive the harmony and accord between all its various parts.
When they covered him with gold leaf they were very careful and gentle in their work so as not to wake him. He could feel them giving him a new skin of gold, and was happy to receive their ministrations and love, all the time keeping his eyes closed, and continuing to appear as if he slept, and at times smiling faintly, for the application of the gold tickled, and the way the sun shone upon it brought a lovely warmth to his stone body.
Leo 10. A man who sees stars invisible to others. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Inspired
(Degree Angel: Yeialel (YAY-a-LEL) Letting Go, Mental Force)
You tap into worlds and realities that are beyond the scope of usual human perception. What you can from this can be used to enrich the knowledge and understanding of people – if they are open to your insights. The problem is, they may not believe you, because they aren’t perceiving what you’re perceiving. The way to resolve this dilemma is to express your ideas in a way that is not so forthright, and in a form that is more acceptable to others, or to use your insights and ideas to further yourself, without being concerned about what others believe or won’t take in.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A man putting olive oil all over his body.” This degree is about making the connections between itself and the outside world smoother, so it can move through the world with greater ease, and minimize the negative reactions which might come toward it from other people. They have a strong need to be independent and true to self, but to do so in a non-abrasive way, in the hopes that their special gifts will be accepted as much as possible. They have an ability to slip out of situations which are unnecessarily limiting, or which don’t allow them to contribute what they uniquely have to offer. Slipping and sliding through the world makes life easier, and minimizes the need for compromise.
Pleiadian Symbol: At predawn a valley enveloped in mist.
Azoth Symbol: Dreams vaguely beginning to appear on a screen.
Seed degree: Cancer 23. A man thanking all his books for the wisdom they have imparted to him. (Omega Symbol). Wisdom is alive, and when we love it it returns our love by offering us ever more subtle insights.
A man putting together pieces of broken pottery. (Chandra Symbol). As we heal and mend what is broken we find an increasing smoothness and evenness coming into our life, which makes it easier to move through all situations.
Fulfillment degree: Capricorn 11. A gothic novel creates a dark, mysterious atmosphere. (Omega Symbol). Carrying inside us deep and special insights impels us to help others to sense the sublimity and vastness of existence.
A young boy joyously kisses a fat old lady. (Chandra Symbol). As we make the connections between ourselves and the outside world smoother and smoother we are able to reach across polarities and differences in a loving and bright manner.
He wasn’t sure why he had been given the gift of seeing these invisible and radiant points in the night sky. He could feel and actually see their radiance entering others at times, when it was needed, even though those being filled with this invisible starlight were not aware of it. All the stars were continually seeking out those who needed to receive their own individual and unique light, and sometimes by a general consensus of a group of many millions of stars whole galaxies would gently trickle into a chakra or other orifice of someone who had sought their light without knowing it.
