INTRODUCTION

The Circular Temple degree meanings were developed by astrologer John Sandbach. Like the very popular Sabian Symbols the degree meanings presented in John's Book "The Circular Temple" were initially created by intuitively channeling the information. In addition to the channeled material, John has developed a system for understanding patterns in degree meanings which he uses extensively in his consulting practice. He began working with degree meanings and sign segments in the early 1970's and continues to work intensively on them today. John's first book, "Dwadashamsas:  Degree Analyses and Deeper Meanings," on the dwadasamsas (the 12-part divisions of each sign used in Indian astrology), was published in 1978. The study of degrees and variations in astrological meanings in a zodiac sign has been a major part of John's life work. We are fortunate to be able to present to you here the interpretations from "The Circular Temple" with this software. As you can see from the length of them, John has devoted a huge amount of time in developing degree meaning interpretations.

There are actually four separate sets of degree meanings, with a symbolic image for each one: the Omega Symbols (root of the degree), the Pleiadian Symbols (the degree's identity), the Chandra Symbols (how it interacts with the world around it), and the Azoth Symbols (its spiritual goal). Each of these degree meanings describes a different aspect of your personality. The combination of all four symbols gives a detailed picture of how the degree functions in your life. If you're interested in studying the theory of degree meanings, John's book "The Circular Temple" is available on kindle at www.amazon.com.

You will notice that each degree also has a "Seed Degree" and a "Fulfillment Degree." These are zodiacal degrees which have a specific mathematical relationship to the particular degree in question. If you have another planet at a Seed Degree or a Fulfillment Degree, or if another person has a planet at one of these degrees, then that planet acts as a source of inspiration and impetus (Seed Degree) or as a fulfillment of the goals of this degree (Fulfillment Degree).

It is important to synthesize the degree meaning to the planet or other astrological point that is at that degree. For example, the degree meaning for Venus relates to your sense of beauty, art, harmony, and romance, and will bring this energy to whatever degree it occupies.  Always remember that the 6th degree of a sign, for example, extends from 5 deg 00 min to 5 deg 59 min 59 sec of the zodiac sign

Lastly, each degree has an "Omega Oracle" which is a prose poem expressing one facet of the degree's energy.  The Oracle is meant to stimulate your imagination and to assist you in tuning in more deeply to the meanings and messages of the degree.

The Degree Angels given at the beginning of each degree come to us from the Kabbalah.  More information about them can be found in the book "Birth Angels Book of Days" by Terah Cox, available at amazon.com.



 

Circular Temple Degree Meanings



Sun is 6-7 deg Cancer

Degree Angel: NITH-HAIAH (NIT-ha-YAH) Speak Your Mind, Spiritual Wisdom and Magic, Interacting/Sensitive

TITLE:   SEEING THROUGH SUFFERING INTO THE HOPE OF A GREATER REALITY

Omega Symbol: Deep in a mine statues and bas-reliefs carved from salt.

In the darkest areas of consciousness and in the cloudiest of situations you sense the potential for purity and clarity. You know deep in your being that the highest ideals are possible to fulfill. Your energy, therefore, is a potent antidote to depression and despair. How this manifesting of ideals is to be accomplished is for your intuition to discover and your rationality to honor and not obstruct.

Pleiadian Symbol: Dancing in and out of the shadows, two fairies dancing down a lane on a windy night.

A joyous moving through darkness that is freed from the fear of uncertainty. Subtle play that revels in mystery and delightful strangeness.

Chandra Symbol: The Arctic wasteland under the setting sun.

In both the Omega and the Chandra symbols there is an aura of the mystic and cosmic. Here the sign Cancer, which can be so focused on its own little world, takes in the vastness and depth of reality. The hostile environment of the Arctic urges one to find the inner source of life sustenance, as the outer source here has virtually disappeared. The bas-reliefs of salt bless and purify the physical realm, honoring it as a temple of learning and growth. The sign Cancer, which is the sign most attuned to learning and teaching is here focused on contacting and comprehending the deepest and most universal truths. This is nurturing of the soul, at root level.

Azoth Symbol: Mythical stories being communicated through dances.

Deep experiencing of the living reality of truth.  Taking in the visceral feel of cosmic energies and the ability to communicate those to others through actions and other means which transcend words.

Seed Degree: Gemini - 16

A man projecting numbers at someone for the purpose of healing that person. (Omega Symbol). Tuning into the vibrations the are most needed to bring us into harmony takes us deep inside ourselves where we may attune to the healing energies stored there and thus clear any negativity stored in our personality.

A single sunflower wilting and dropping its seeds. (Chandra Symbol). When we naturally release the fullness of our creativity we experience a profound and clear rest - a beautiful sense of emptiness and purity.

Fulfillment Degree: Aries - 9

A woman ironing white linen. (Omega Symbol). Having found an anchoring of clarity deep inside ourselves we are able to proceed with bringing greater light and harmony to our outer reality.

A fat man in a state of reverie smoking a hookah. (Chandra Symbol). Finding a vast clear space within where we may freely dream dreams, we commune with our imagination, allowing it to find its way into higher realms.

Omega Oracle

Having mined so much salt from this place the people, in thanks, had carved these statues as tributes to the gods of salt and earth. We journeyed there with candles and saw a carved map of the moon held by a naked goddess, and her animal-headed minions, and carved forests, and inscriptions in the Moon's watery language.

And a wind came and blew our candles out, leaving us there to dream in the darkness, which anointed us.


Moon is 18-19 deg Scorpio

Degree Angel: YEZALEL (YAY-za-LEL) Heaven on Earth, Fidelity, Loyalty, and Allegiance, Manifesting/Responsible

TITLE: SPONTANEOUS CONNECTION TO COSMIC FORCES

Omega Symbol: An angel kisses a man while he sleeps.

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.

Pleiadian Symbol: A bird imitating all the sounds of the jungle.

The ability to blend with and mirror the world around you.  Clever, fluid and harmonious interaction with any environment in which you find yourself.  This adroitness of connecting is also shown in the rope going up into the sky of the Chandra Symbol and in the potential taking care of the visitors of the Azoth Symbol.

Chandra Symbol: 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.

Azoth Symbol: Unexpected visitors arrive, needing food and shelter.

The ability to play the role of helping angel as the occasion spontaneously arises.  In any immediate situation of need you can be immensely resourceful and at your finest are always ready to make every attempt to fulfill the requirements of any situation that arises.  And as you do this you find that the universe responds with generousity back toward you.

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.

Omega Oracle

(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 individuals 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 ones 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."


Mercury is 2-3 deg Leo

Degree Angel: Hahasiah (he-HA-see-Yah) No Guilt, Universal Medicine, Manifesting/Receptive

TITLE:   A WILLINGNESS TO GO EVERYWHERE AND ANYWHERE IN SEARCH OF THE SELF

Omega Symbol: Walking down the street, a man passes his double.

You're pulled in may directions. If you jump around from one thing to another too much you may be entertained for awhile, and will maybe elude temporarily what your deep inner self knows it has to do. You need to keep asking yourself, "why am I focusing on this?" You goal is to rein in your curiosity and continually come back to what is important.

Pleiadian Symbol: A female priestess having her head shaved.

The overcoming of outer and superficial forms of self-expression. Exposing oneself to the influences of higher realities, which means the giving up of old ways of thinking.

Chandra Symbol: A rickshaw.

Loving to run here, run there. It can be a means of connecting and synthesizing all into increasing patterns of harmony and progress - if you allow your intuition to guide you where to go next, or it can be just a lot of scrambling around in a desperate effort to avoid those things you really need to look at, and those places you really need to go.

Azoth Symbol: A man teaching the practical application of spiritual principles.

Abstractions used to produce concrete results as a means of channeling the energy of the higher self into physical reality.  This degree works to bridge the gap between the ideal and the real so that the ideal may continually fertilize and refine the real.

Seed Degree: Aries - 29

A woman immersed in healing mud. (Omega Symbol). Deep union with the realm of physical reality we come into an acutely heightened self-awareness.

Dr. Jekyll drinks the potion. (Chandra Symbol). A willingness to experiment, to embark on adventures, and to encounter our shadow self frees up our energy to move and to connect us with a host of destinations.

Fulfillment Degree: Gemini - 11

Rain falling on the ocean. (Omega Symbol). An acute awareness of ourselves in all our uniqueness and distinctiveness helps us to realize eventually how alike we are to each other, and all a part of the vast see of our consciousness.

A stag with golden horns. (Chandra Symbol). Going so many places in search of so many things we find, among so much that is mundane, that which is cosmic, exalted, and sublime.

Omega Oracle

Walking down the street I saw myself ignoring myself. The other me glanced at me quickly and hurried away, fearing, probably, that I'd ask him some too personal question that would make him uncomfortable, or criticize his clothing, which would have been strange, since it was identical to my own.

I might stalk myself, and finding out where I live, wait until I might catch myself coming or going. I wish he wouldn't fear me so - I only want to ask him if he remembers me from the past.


Venus is 2-3 deg Gemini

Degree Angel: Anauel (a-NA-oo-EL) Appreciation, Perception of Unity, Manifesting/Receptive

TITLE:   COVERT PENETRATION INTO MYSTERIES

Omega Symbol: An invisible man wandering in the night.

You have a strong urge to investigate and to roam, and can be fearless and boundless in your searching. Your demeanor is non-threatening to others, and because of this people readily allow you into their world, where you can learn much and potentially offer assistance which they would have accepted in no other way. You can accomplish much in a quiet and unseen manner.

Pleiadian Symbol: In spring old people sitting along garden paths and enjoying the flowers.

You focus on what is fresh, lovely, simple, and innocent. You love to savor the natural beauties of reality with other people.  You reject all that is complicated and difficult, and care nothing for all those promises of future happiness which the world constantly encourages us to chase after.

Chandra Symbol: A dense thicket of brambles surrounding a magic castle.

The brambles are a protection, as is the invisibility of the man in the Omega Symbol. This degree is about relating, and in the process of doing so finding ways to get through barriers of fear and misunderstanding so that one can make deeper connections.

Another aspect of this degree is that it may ward off connections with life and/or other people and not be aware it is doing this. Ultimately it is a way of maintaining one's freedom to be oneself - a kind of filtering device that only allows in what harmonizes with one's own vibrations. This can be positive in that it protects one's energy, but, like all systems of protection it can also, in some contexts restrict personal evolution.

Azoth Symbol: A visionary lies in a dark room as she waits for signs and messages.

The shutting out of the outer to allow the emergence of the inner.  Sometimes this can be difficult to do and can require drastic measures, but you tend to let nothing get in your way when you're attempting to make contact with your inner wisdom.  Notice how this shutting out of outer influences mirrors the brambles that surround the magic castle in the Chandra Symbol for this degree.

Seed Degree: Aries - 27

Over a waterfall gleams a rainbow many thousands of years old. (Omega Symbol). The mist rises, revealing the spectrum of the light. Empowered by it, we let go of all fear and set out to explore the darkness.

A fun house. (Chandra Symbol). Experiencing so many delights and surprises as we journey through the fun house, we come eventually to The Serious House - which is actually a more profound version of the fun house. If we can get beyond the brambles of our fears, hesitations and uncertainties, we may enter it to study the Art of Magic.

Fulfillment Degree: Gemini - 6

In the far north an ancient tower carved of ice. (Omega Symbol). Wandering the depths of ourselves we discover at our core a pillar of clarity from which we may view our own vastness.

A claw foot holding a ball. (Chandra Symbol). The secrets of the Magic Castle - they are transparent and slippery, but once grasped we see that their form is whole and complete, and fits perfectly into our hand.

Omega Oracle

Although he was invisible, when he looked down he could see his footprints forming in the grass as he walked. He wore shoes on his nightly outings, which was not a problem, for anything he put on also became invisible for the time that he wore it. Dawn always brought, gradually, the return of visibility, and a fading of all memories of the night before. Which made him not only invisible in the night, but made his night self invisible to his day self as well.


Mars is 21-22 deg Gemini

Degree Angel: ALADIAH (a-LA-dee-YAH) Looks Can Kill: Protection from the Evil Eye, Divine Grace, Interacting/Sensitive

TITLE:   THE NEED TO ACCEPT SITUATIONS OPEN-MINDEDLY, AND FREED FROM ALL JUDGMENTS, TO MAKE THE BEST OF WHAT IS or THE AWARENESS OF WHAT IS LACKING AND THE WILLINGNESS TO COMPENSATE FOR IT

Omega Symbol: A painting that, once it is seen, cannot be remembered.

You're always ready to start over again, if you have to. You are able to overcome the preconditioning of the past and to look at situations once again with a fresh and unclouded vision. Other people as well as the world itself are continually attempting to compel other people how to be and act. It is your challenge to not allow these projections to subdue the expression of who you really are.

Pleiadian Symbol: Humans and many types of animals carrying out an elaborate dance.

Interacting dynamically and joyously with the wholeness of life and inducing others to join in with one. Creative rapport between all the various aspects of self.

Chandra Symbol: A young girl is sold to a sultan.

This is one of the most obviously negative of all the symbols. This does not mean that this degree is any more positive or negative in its potential than any of the others. Whenever we come across one of these negative images it represents a caution, and means that the person with this degree in their chart is aware of the brand of negativity depicted by the symbol - in this case the potential for people to be supremely selfish in their attempt to dominate others and treat them like objects. How Todd Akin And Paul Ryan Partnered To Redefine Rape Earlier today, Missouri U.S. Senate candidate Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) claimed that "legitimate rape" does not often lead to pregnancy because "the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing. . .  This degree is very aware of the coercive and dehumanizing elements in society, and the way that other people often take these elements for granted and as an accepted way of life. It seeks to overcome this tendency, as well as help other people to overcome it too. And, like the painting that can't be remembered in the Omega Symbol, we need to continually be returning to and looking again at this situation and keep reminding ourselves that it exists and what it looks like if we are ever to change it.

Azoth Symbol: In a darkened room people wait silently and expectantly for a medium to speak.

You're open to messages coming from spiritual realms, and your expectancy that those messages will be delivered tends to draw them to you.  You have as well an ability to evoke that same feeling of receptivity and openness in other people.  You're highly aware of how atmosphere and setting affects communication, and are adept at finding ways to use these to enhance your rapport with other people.

Seed Degree: Sagittarius - 15

Prized possessions are disappearing, one by one. (Omega Symbol). Letting go of and losing whatever we have helps us to continually see everything in a new way.

A tidal wave approaching. (Chandra Symbol). Experiencing profound inner changes that sweep away the structures by which we have always lived help us to see more clearly the needs of other people and to overcome our own selfishness.

Fulfillment Degree: Capricorn - 7

A guidebook to an ancient city. (Omega Symbol). In an attempt to understand more deeply that which we have trouble taking in, we are led to explore the past in a more clear, detailed and profound manner.

A satyr gazing at his reflection in a pond. (Chandra Symbol). To comprehend and overcome the selfish aspects of ourselves and the power struggles we find ourselves in, we look more deeply into our own animal nature, so that it may be recognized for what it is and integrated more harmoniously into our being.

Omega Oracle

There is, supposedly, a painting in the Museum of Peth that is incapable of being remembered.  I wrote down the name of it, "Seekers at Twilight," and searched for it in the museum archives, but found nothing.  Nor has any art historian written of it -how could they?  They don't remember it.

I would describe the painting to you, but as I have forgotten what it looks like, I can't.  This is a painting deeply shrouded in its own secret.  All I can tell you, though, is that whoever has seen it remembers it as being of exquisite beauty, breathtaking in fact.  But although they vow to go back and look at it again, no one ever does, until, wandering the galleries of the museum they happen to come upon it again.


Jupiter is 11-12 deg Cancer

Degree Angel: Omael (O-ma-EL) Building Bridges, Fertility, Multiplicity Defeats frustration, despair and depression, Transforming/Sensitive

TITLE:   EXTREME SUBTLETY AND CAREFULNESS IN DELVING INTO LIFE

Omega Symbol: A diamond light enough to float.

You seek what is perfect, and rather than being frustrated by the flaws you find everywhere around you you need to realize that all is already perfect - the perfect situation and circumstances for your personal growth. Perfection needs to be something that uplifts other by giving them a beautiful, clear, and light-filled picture of spiritual realities, rather than a burden which only serves to make one feel limited and inadequate.

Pleiadian Symbol: A woman breast feeding a baby is seeing in her mind its former incarnations.

The vision of the hidden sources of whatever one gives birth to and fosters. The process of nurturing opens one up to an intuitive realization of the soul's journey.

Chandra Symbol: Carefully a surgeon begins the dissection of a corpse.

This image is about research into the structure of life - the attempt to understand the function of various aspects of existence and how those functions relate to each other - as well as what can go wrong with the system.

How radically this contrasts with the lightness and perfection of the Omega Symbol. The message is that in the realm of the material and imperfect we find, it we look closely enough the light, purity and harmony of the spiritual, that is always trying to shine through. This degree strives toward perfection, and knows, intuitively that to find it will take patience and much careful looking.

The 12th degree of all the signs is always about learning to let go of the burden of one's fears and worries and to have faith that the universe is perfectly set up to assist in one's growth. The message here is that there is no ultimate security in the physical plane, but if one can embrace the perfection that exists beyond it, one can find the enduring security that Cancer is always striving for.

Azoth Symbol: In the dark depths of the ocean a glowing fish encountered.

The perception of marvelous understandings hidden deep in the subconscious, and the possibility that these may rise to the surface, like the diamond of the Omega Symbol. This is what the surgeon of the Chandra Symbol is seeking.

Seed Degree: Leo - 16

An angel appears to lost travelers and shows them the right direction. (Omega Symbol). Through allowing in the generosity of the universe we become increasingly generous ourselves, meaning that we grow impervious to confusion and discord.

A red faced man, tears running down his cheeks. He is laughing convulsively. (Chandra Symbol). Allowing our system to purge itself of heaviness, sorrow, and other negative emotions, we are able to come into a deeper understanding of the inner workings of our own being.

Fulfillment Degree: Virgo - 9

In a freshly plowed field, a man searching for arrowheads. (Omega Symbol). Sensing the presence of perfection underlying everything, we become content with the small things of life, and desire to recapture the lost sparks of light, which are those energies that have been wasted on negativity.

A man mixing cement. (Chandra Symbol). Having looked deeply into the inner workings of things - including ourselves - we fee an intense desire to - put the fragments of life back together in a meaningful way.

Omega Oracle

The inner traveler Tinarus speaks of diamonds so light that they bear only the vaguest connection to gravity. They are found on a certain hidden island that wards off explorers, for the island resists all thought and perception, and so is never seen by passing travelers.

Tinarus says that beings from the star called Shenkar are the ones who grew this island to be as a womb to hold these miraculous gems, which the island is devoted to both concealing and protecting. It is said that the purpose of these gems is to draw into themselves and digest a part of the heaviness of our world, so that we may be, at least to an extent, unburdened of our darkness.

Occasionally by the action of an earthquake or volcano or the undermining of a cliff by the perpetual pounding of surf one of these diamonds is dislodged and floats away, wandering the ocean until it washes up far from its home on one of the coasts we know.

Tinarus says that even when a diamond of this island enters in this manner our world that it is never found, for it becomes invisible, and is only to be seen occasionally in dreams, where it finds a new home in which to work its magic, but is hardly ever remembered.


Saturn is 29-30 deg Pisces

Degree Angel: Mumiah (MOO-mee-YAH) Spiritual Cleansing, Endings and Rebirth, Transforming/Inspired

TITLE:   ALL-INCLUSIVE EMPATHY PLAYED OUT IN EVERY PASSING CONNECTION

Omega Symbol: A dense forest of organ pipes.

This degree is aware of the vast number of possibilities in life and of the music that can arrive from all the potential interactions with the universe around it. What is to meet this plethora is the inspiration coming from inside - the music that arises from the self and is played out in lifetimes. The more we allow ourselves to flow the more what is most needed and beneficial for us will come forth from the inside as well as meet us from the outside. This is the truth of this degree.

Pleiadian Symbol: A seer, on his back and gazing into the sky, becomes a channel for cosmic messages.

You can be a conduit for limitless possibilities.  You turn your attention outward, away from the earth, though the fact that the seer of the symbol lays on the earth means that you have the capacity to be thoroughly grounded, which gives you the power to deliver to the world the messages that come to you from beyond.  You can enhance this power of yours by keeping yourself as clear as possible and continuing to work to clear your own karma.  Of course the messages you receive can help you to do this.

Chandra Symbol: A large halo in ring formation around the moon.

Pisces is the sign of acceptance, and here in its last degree acceptance reaches completion. So often we think we have accepted something only to find there are deeper levels to which we may go in this process. It is easy to accept what is beautiful and wonderful, but to accept all the rest, the ugly, the sad, the scary, the terrifying, that is where there is so much more of a tendency to reject or deny. This degree thinks in terms of bringing all emotions into the fold of the great and complete family of emotions, and the magic of it is finding that when all are accepted, the spiritual radiance reaches perfection, and we achieve the release for which we have been searching all along.

Azoth Symbol: An object of great beauty unearthed.

The retrieval and restoration of lost treasures and wonders.  You bring valuable things to light, often ones that were long-forgotten or lost and which, once re-discovered, enrich humanity.

Seed Degree: 30 Pisces is its own seed degree.

Fulfillment Degree: 30 Pisces is its own fulfillment degree.

Omega Oracle

In the country house of the great eccentric Palsano Farad is a vast gallery filled with organ pipes of all sizes and shapes.   All of them are black and are made from the resin of a rare tree that grows in the remote forests of Yeldith.   This resin, when refined, yields a dense and highly elastic substance which pulsates as if it were alive, expanding and contracting as if it were breathing.

Palsano found by fashioning this substance into pipes that the pipes drew in air on their own, and when it was expelled, would emit a tone, just as a regular organ pipe would.

Palsano made many ranks of these pipes, ones that sounded like horns, others violins, some like human voices, others with a chiming timbre and even ones with a tone as clear as glass.   When the pipes were placed together it was found that they all seemed to be aware of each other and would begin to speak amongst themselves, creating a music that was ever shifting, changing and evolving.   And as well, the pipes seemed to be aware of whoever was listening to them, for when various people entered this gallery the music would change and would seem to reflect the aura and energy field of the listener.

Many musicians and composers over time came to the great organ of Palsano and there received much inspiration from listening to the pipes speak to each other. And it was also found that the music of Palsano's organ had healing properties and could ease the suffering of any and every illness.

Please excuse this rather complicated answer.  I realize that your original question was, "Why is it that the great organ of Palsano has no keyboard?"


Uranus is 16-17 deg Virgo

Degree Angel: MELAHEL (MAY-la-HEL) Sharing the Flame, Healing Capacity, Manifesting/Sensitive

TITLE:   PROFOUND ABILITY TO OVERCOME LIMITATION or TRANSCENDING OF MENTAL BOUNDARIES

Omega Symbol: A scientist discovers the secret of time travel.

Your mind is freed from the rigid limits imposed by process, so that ultimately you're able to go back and change anything. You can see beyond the accepted and ordinary and by doing so gain a very broad perspective on existence. People, though, can be quite attached to limits, because boundaries make them feel safe. So you need to be careful about when, where and how you share what you know - so that it does the most good. Your power lies in being able to find alternate pathways to the solution of any problem.

Pleiadian Symbol: Lava, as it flows into the sea, is creating new land.

The spontaneous solidifying of creative impulses into tangible manifestations.  The power to shift that which is full of energy but inconstant and unpredictable toward something solid and dependable that can be used in the physical world.  The forging of new territory.

Chandra Symbol: An old bald woman talking to her dog.

The woman's baldness signifies a mind freed from rational thought. She communicates with her dog through pure instinct, and receive back the dog's messages. In the past, when a little girl, she had the instinctive nature of the dog, which became later overlaid with intellect and objectivity, which has now faded away, returning her to her former state and allowing her to recontact her own animal nature directly. This is, in essence a sort of time travel - returning to the past in the future.

This degree is about reconnecting with the ground of one's being, and communing with one's source. Doing so creates a clearer perception of the way one has developed and the course that's been taken. It is a way of both assessing and grounding one's overall evolution.

Unfortunately the insights of this degree may be denigrated, scoffed at, or trivialized by others and this can result in a lack of trust in the value of one's own instincts. A naked simplicity of thought may in the end come to be realized as great profundity.

Azoth Symbol: In the far north, sailors come to an uninhabited island that is strangely warm.

Even in the midst of hostile or unsupportive circumstances one finds and shares with others places that are inviting and nurturing.  Through doing this one eases the hardships of the spiritual journeys of both oneself and others.  A gift for coming upon the unexpected which happens because of one's ability to be openminded.

Seed Degree: Libra - 18

Waking in the night, a man feels an earthquake. (Omega Symbol). A deep intuitive awareness of the subtle shifts going on in the collective reality allows one to perceive the bigger patterns at work in life, and the ways they might be changed for the better.

A woman carefully counting the beans in a jar. (Chandra Symbol). Knowing that those facts which may seem unimportant to others could be meaningful to the self, we set up a rapport with those beings and energies with which we feel a heart connection.

Fulfillment Degree: Aquarius - 14

During the rain, a bird is heard singing. (Omega Symbol). Understanding more and more deeply the workings of process as it unfolds through our evolution, we sense the joy of growth even in the midst of seeming sorrows.

In a pyramid a dark passageway filled with scorpions. (Chandra Symbol). Engaging in open-minded rapport with our animal self, we are drawn to those places within whose power needs to be integrated into our wholeness.

Omega Oracle

It is not a machine that one needs so as to move at will through time, but only a realization. When we came here we promised to obey certain rules, one of them being that we would all move through time at the same time together - in a polite and orderly fashion. To break such a promise is well nigh impossible for most, for it would inevitably give rise to unendurable horror and guilt, that is, if one were to do it before moving through the doors of death first.

Actually, all this observation of protocol and strictness in adhering to rules is unnecessary, if one can simply do it in a silent, graceful manner, and preferably rather sharply, like a needle moving through a tapestry.


Neptune is 19-20 deg Scorpio

Degree Angel: MEBAHEL (May-ba-HEL) Farewell to Arms, Truth, Liberty, and Justice, Manifesting/Inspired

TITLE: THE COLLECTION AND PROTECTION OF KNOWLEDGE AND WISDOM

Omega Symbol: A man who carries large sacks of books with him wherever he goes.

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.

Pleiadian Symbol: At the play's beginning a dark and empty stage.

The ability to create something out of nothing, or at least out of very little.  Often times things which need to happen don't happen because there's no space for them to happen in, and knowing this you approach life with an open, inviting attitude which can make a space in which creative energies can interplay as they unfold.

Chandra Symbol: 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.

Azoth Symbol: The diamond shield of a mythical king of old.

Potent defense against anything which might attempt to defeat your purpose.  You have the power to muster a nearly unassailable certainty, and such pure self-assurance allows you to proceed through the world with great audacity.  As long as you place this shield of yours in the service of high-minded and spiritual endeavors you will find that you can always depend on it.

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.

Omega Oracle

Salurius Exal, professor, orator and peripatetic lecturer could go nowhere without his extensive library, so invented a method of shrinking books, several large 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 be read only 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.


Pluto is 16-17 deg Virgo

Degree Angel: MELAHEL (MAY-la-HEL) Sharing the Flame, Healing Capacity, Manifesting/Sensitive

TITLE:   PROFOUND ABILITY TO OVERCOME LIMITATION or TRANSCENDING OF MENTAL BOUNDARIES

Omega Symbol: A scientist discovers the secret of time travel.

Your mind is freed from the rigid limits imposed by process, so that ultimately you're able to go back and change anything. You can see beyond the accepted and ordinary and by doing so gain a very broad perspective on existence. People, though, can be quite attached to limits, because boundaries make them feel safe. So you need to be careful about when, where and how you share what you know - so that it does the most good. Your power lies in being able to find alternate pathways to the solution of any problem.

Pleiadian Symbol: Lava, as it flows into the sea, is creating new land.

The spontaneous solidifying of creative impulses into tangible manifestations.  The power to shift that which is full of energy but inconstant and unpredictable toward something solid and dependable that can be used in the physical world.  The forging of new territory.

Chandra Symbol: An old bald woman talking to her dog.

The woman's baldness signifies a mind freed from rational thought. She communicates with her dog through pure instinct, and receive back the dog's messages. In the past, when a little girl, she had the instinctive nature of the dog, which became later overlaid with intellect and objectivity, which has now faded away, returning her to her former state and allowing her to recontact her own animal nature directly. This is, in essence a sort of time travel - returning to the past in the future.

This degree is about reconnecting with the ground of one's being, and communing with one's source. Doing so creates a clearer perception of the way one has developed and the course that's been taken. It is a way of both assessing and grounding one's overall evolution.

Unfortunately the insights of this degree may be denigrated, scoffed at, or trivialized by others and this can result in a lack of trust in the value of one's own instincts. A naked simplicity of thought may in the end come to be realized as great profundity.

Azoth Symbol: In the far north, sailors come to an uninhabited island that is strangely warm.

Even in the midst of hostile or unsupportive circumstances one finds and shares with others places that are inviting and nurturing.  Through doing this one eases the hardships of the spiritual journeys of both oneself and others.  A gift for coming upon the unexpected which happens because of one's ability to be openminded.

Seed Degree: Libra - 18

Waking in the night, a man feels an earthquake. (Omega Symbol). A deep intuitive awareness of the subtle shifts going on in the collective reality allows one to perceive the bigger patterns at work in life, and the ways they might be changed for the better.

A woman carefully counting the beans in a jar. (Chandra Symbol). Knowing that those facts which may seem unimportant to others could be meaningful to the self, we set up a rapport with those beings and energies with which we feel a heart connection.

Fulfillment Degree: Aquarius - 14

During the rain, a bird is heard singing. (Omega Symbol). Understanding more and more deeply the workings of process as it unfolds through our evolution, we sense the joy of growth even in the midst of seeming sorrows.

In a pyramid a dark passageway filled with scorpions. (Chandra Symbol). Engaging in open-minded rapport with our animal self, we are drawn to those places within whose power needs to be integrated into our wholeness.

Omega Oracle

It is not a machine that one needs so as to move at will through time, but only a realization. When we came here we promised to obey certain rules, one of them being that we would all move through time at the same time together - in a polite and orderly fashion. To break such a promise is well nigh impossible for most, for it would inevitably give rise to unendurable horror and guilt, that is, if one were to do it before moving through the doors of death first.

Actually, all this observation of protocol and strictness in adhering to rules is unnecessary, if one can simply do it in a silent, graceful manner, and preferably rather sharply, like a needle moving through a tapestry.


Ascendant is 6-7 deg Libra

Degree Angel: VEULIAH (vay-OO-lee-AH) Defying Gravity, Prosperity, Interacting/Sensitive

TITLE: AWARENESS OF LIMITS AND OF WHAT THEY SHUT OUT

Omega Symbol: The Great Wall of China making a huge shadow.

You are aware of all the limits around you as well as within you. On the one hand you are intensely concerned with maintaining your own integrity by holding out all that might try to compel you to be other than what you are. On the other hand you can become quite frustrated with the restrictions you find everywhere. Your acute awareness of all life's edges and boundaries can make you feel impossibly limited but it can also imbue you with the ability to relate in a highly clear and focused manner.

Pleiadian Symbol: A baby phoenix crawling forth from the ashes of its parent.

Complete dissolution and then rebirth. This mirrors the endless rekindling of interest seen in the old ladies gossiping excitedly of the Chandra Symbol - their excitement over what they talk of rekindles their youth.

Chandra Symbol: A group of old ladies gossiping excitedly.

The ladies of this symbol are talking about limits - the limits of decency, the limits imposed by social mores, about people pushing and transgressing limits, and about the limited information they have as well as the desire to have more of it. And, of course, the wall in the Omega Symbol represents a great edifice devoted to limits that is casting its shadow over everything. Relationships are all about interacting within limits. It is a testing of our limits to see where they are and maybe to push them back to make more room for ourselves. It is through encountering, assessing and working with these limits that we come to know ourselves as well as others more clearly, and, based on this, define a path forward.

Azoth Symbol: A pictographic inscription in a tomb.

Indelible images continually recalling the past. Deep and enduring remembrance. The Great Wall of the Omega Symbol may be the wall that separates the past from the present, just as the pictographic inscription evokes the past in the present.

Seed Degree: Gemini - 19

The Golden Fleece hanging in a garden. (Omega Symbol). Sensing deeply our own destiny, which is the attainment of enlightenment, we become acutely aware of all that restricts us, encloses us, and prevents us from achieving freedom.

Strange creatures peaking out from behind trees. (Chandra Symbol). Sensing the great variety of nature spirits living everywhere, we are stimulated to exchange information with others in the hopes of more completely understanding the hidden energies at work all around us.

Fulfillment Degree: Libra - 16

After many revisions, a poem is thrown away. (Omega Symbol). Understanding all the various ways we are affected by obstructions and limitations helps us to abandon, when we need to, those projects which, although we have learned from them, we no longer need to pursue. Another way of expressing this is that limitations always teach us non-attachment.

A woman: The lower half of her body is a serpent. (Chandra Symbol). The mind's curiosity leads it eventually into the realm of profound intuitive wisdom - a power to be respected, and which one must beware of misusing.

Omega Oracle

He walked away as the sun set, leaving the wall's shadow behind him, knowing, as night drew on, it would eventually catch up and, overtaking him, engulf his own shadow, the two shadows growing gigantic as the merged with each other, and with the night.

The space between stars teaches us the vastness of all shadows.


MC is 7-8 deg Cancer

Degree Angel: HAAIAH (HA-ee-YAH) Order From Chaos, Political Science and Ambition, Interacting/Receptive

TITLE:   EVOCATION OF SPIRITUAL FORCES

Omega Symbol: A man versed in the art of making charms and talismans.

You know how to focus energy, to collect it and pattern it for maximum intensity so that it can become a healing force. You can't figure out how to do this, you just need to allow your desire to create to manifest, and it will spontaneously occur. There is much latent knowledge you carry within you. Your task is to tune into it and allow it to flow.

Pleiadian Symbol: Rabbits in elegant dress dancing with each other at a masked ball.

The gentle and innocent enactment of rituals and outer forms as a species of play. The ability to take on delightful and unusual roles while remaining one's own natural self behind them. The realization of inherent simplicity hidden within complexity.

Chandra Symbol: An alchemical text written on parchment.

In this symbol we find formulas for healing and evolution, in the Omega Symbol we find a person who has taken in and become versed in these formulas, so that he might practically employ them. This degree is about understanding the different qualities inherent in different vibrations, together with learning how they combine together. Here is the attempt to understand processes, and then to use that understanding creatively to solve problems and, hopefully, advance the self spiritually. The negative potential here is that the person must keep the Higher Purpose in mind, and not get caught up in mere tricks, or serving the selfishness and greed of the lower self.

Azoth Symbol: A seer has a vision of the Light's ever-present and all-seeing eye.

Tuning in to a higher perception that frees one from all confusion and uncertainty.  This eye is the ultimate and living talisman upon which the work of the alchemist of the Omega Symbol is based.

Seed Degree: Gemini - 28

A house which keeps growing bigger and bigger. (Omega Symbol). Seeing the way in which potentials infinitely proliferate, we choose from a vast array of possibilities those energies which we wish to amplify.

A cloud in the shape of a rabbit. (Chandra Symbol). Tuning into the fleeting manifestations of subtle energy forces we attempt to see eternal laws at work behind them, and to find a way to express those laws.

Fulfillment Degree: Taurus - 9

Bats streaming out of a cave at dusk. (Omega Symbol). Our magical intent draws forth the abundant life of energies dwelling deep inside us.

A talkative woman with tape over her mouth. (Chandra Symbol). We study so deeply and acutely the formulas and laws of existence that we come to a pint of realizing that theories must now be put aside to allow inspiration to arise out of the silence and guide us.

Omega Oracle

He imagined his talismans as maps which charted the landscapes of desire, miniature worlds whose influence would compel the world around them to move into clearer, higher atmospheres. His geometries became vessels filled with his intent. He chanted into his talismans the names of forces which would bring harmony to the wearer, or the home in which they were hung. Plants, creatures, stones and stars and beings of the lands of twilight gathered round to help him as he worked.
