Phase 67. Great Expectations (Aleph Yud Ayin)
Angel: Eyael(AY-ya-EL) Transformation to the Sublime
Pisces 1. At sunset, a petrified forest glows with iridescence. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Experimental
(Degree Angel: Veuliah (vay-OO-lee-AH) Defying Gravity, Prosperity)
This degree is aware of the multifarious forms through which knowledge manifests. It deeply senses the eternal realities that hide in passing forms. What is most difficult for it is to focus on any one thing, for in its world energies flow together and can seem to it so formless as to be inexpressible. The way out of this frustration is to embrace the all and move with the passing shimmerings of each moment.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A field of dandelions.” This degree has a joyful appreciation of the common and ordinary, and an understanding that all aspects of the human species shared reality have come to be due to having survived and outlived so many other ideas and ways of being that have been cast aside or minimized over time. In other words, there is an instinct for comprehending how the
mainstream of society represents the strongest and most persistent motivations of the race. To try to find and support what is most positive and spiritual in this is the goal of this degree. It is the Piscean sympathy shining forth most directly, spontaneously, and universally, like the sunshine of countless stars in a galaxy of dandelions.

Pisces 2. From deep in the earth, the sound of a waterfall (Omega Symbol). Manifesting/Sensitive
(Degree Angel: Yelahiah (yay-LAH-hee-YAH) Sweetening Judgment, Karmic Warrior)
In all life situations this degrees senses a greater reality and hidden energies that are influencing the here and now. It has a strong and persistent knowing that what we are all doing here in the realm of physicality is of extreme importance, and is a key to spiritual fulfillment. Its highest calling is its role as a patient learner who listens to the world around it and hears the voices of spirit calling.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A man turning into a werewolf.” Through giving in to one’s animal instincts one can most easily come to understand and guide them. Here is a need to take an often extreme and periodic break from the rigors of being encased in a social framework, a need to throw off all repression and dive into one’s deepest desires. This, in and of it self is healthy, as long as the person doesn’t fall prey to thinking that these primal energies are victimizers dominating the self and which cannot be resisted, or chanelled into life giving and spiritual actions. At worst there may be a secret love, here, of being out of control, but when this is admitted, the inner wolf may be befriended and trained without breaking its spirit.

Pisces 3. Just before a wedding, a purifying rainstorm. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Receptive
(Degree Angel: Sehaliah (say-HA-lee-YAH) The Power of Prosperity, Motivation and Willfulness)
This degree knows that if it is going to enter into connections with other people and the world around it it needs to let go of all fear, all assumptions, and all beliefs in limitation. This is a tremendous thing to ask of itself, and even though it may not be able to carry out this agenda all at once there is a continual cleansing here as a prelude to engaging in relationships in the clearest way possible.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “An eye gazing out of the top of a pyramid.” This degree is always seeing things in terms of their highest spiritual aspect, and even when in the thick of suffering, drama and illusion there is always this overtone of crystalline clarity. It is simply a manner of learning to focus on this which will, over time gradually elevate and strengthen the spirit more and more.

Pisces 4. Rustic folk gather many types of wildflowers for a celebration. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Responsible
(Degree Angel: Ariel (AH-ree-EL) Absolute Certainty, Perceiver and Revealer)
This degree has in its nature a fullness and completeness that invites everything into anything which it does. The result is a great blending of the energies of nature that manifests as a lushness of expression, and everything done and entered into with a feeling of great abundance of possibility and opportunity. It is a potent antidote against the belief in poverty and lack.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Mushrooms springing up everywhere.” In the right environment certain life forms find exactly what they need to grow. This degree knows that so many problems can be solved simply by seeking out the exact type of environment they need. This principle is a clear explanation of how so much negativity has come to be accumulated on planet earth – these negative forces have been carefully and systematically cultivated. And so positive, spiritual forces may be cultivated in the same way.
This degree often feels the urge to make changes or modifications in various aspects of its reality, and should follow these, rather than allowing too many questions to cause doubt and hesitancy. There is here an ability to read needs, even ones of the most subjective sort, needs of an outer, obvious nature as well as subtle, vibrational needs.
It tends to approach everything indirectly, being, in a sense, more concerned with the atmosphere around a thing rather than the thing itself. The results of this can be immensely fruitful.

Fulfillment degree: Capricorn 28.A roomful of people busily cutting diamonds. (Omega Symbol). The ephemeral celebration involving the colors of the wildflowers reflects the diamonds’ eternal celebration of color. The work of play becomes the play of work.
A mirror covered with a fine film of dust. (Chandra Symbol). A cycle of proliferation must always be followed by a process of clearing and refreshing, to make ready for the next cycle. Fecundity increases the awareness of entropy.
Pisces 5. Dyers at work with many vats of different colors. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Inspired
(Degree Angel: Asaliah (a-SA-lee-YAH) Global Transformation, Contemplation)
This degree likes to work with a wide spectrum of vibrations. It is very imaginative, and wants to bring its inner visions down into physical reality. It is looking to make the world a brighter place and to transmute all negative emotions into their spiritual counterparts, fear becoming faith, anger love, and sadness joy. It seeks to remove the veil of drabness from everyday life to allow the wonder of nature to shine forth.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Thousands of gold nuggets glistening at the bottom of a clear stream.” When you allow emotions to flow forth and be whatever they want to be, letting to of any attachment to them, but without repressing them, they can wash away confusion and disillusion and leave behind the realization of what is truly important and of value. This degree is about allowing cleansing processes to happen. It is also about allowing meaning to emerge from life by joyously going one’s own way spontaneously until all becomes clear.
