How Seeing the Truth Can Set Us Free
Mercury and the Sun are transmitting a powerful stream of cosmic light and love information to help us see the truth.
I was blown away by John Sandbach’s degree symbols for the Sun in Sagittarius today. Especially the symbols for 22 Sagittarius (see below) — which encapsulate the work we’ve been doing to rewrite our life stories in the Book of Spells group.
We are operating from the premise that most (if not all) of the self-sabotaging, destructive, and shame-based patterns we find within ourselves are not ours. They were implanted in us (as part of the trip of being born on Earth at this time) by the parasitic forces that have enslaved humanity for centuries in order to feed themselves on our pain and negative emotions.
The more we fully realize that our pain and our problems are caused by our belief in and adherence to a narrative that is not true, the more quickly we can reclaim our inner authority and create the life we desire.
Sagittarius is all about embracing the truth and setting ourselves (and our world) free. The parasitic narrative says: I am to blame because my “sin” or my inherently defective nature is the reason for my lack of love, health, money, success, etc. etc.
Why do we believe this lie? Partly because it is enforced through what Eckhart Tolle calls “the pain-body.” Tolle calls this a ‘psychic parasite’ that we inherit upon being born on Earth.
But simply revoking our agreement to adhere to this story of our weakness, sin, and powerlessness can enable us to make radical and lasting changes in our world.
Through nothing other than shifting our perspective to see the Parasite and the “pain-body” for what they are, we open ourselves to allowing the full light of our Divine selves to stream through into the world.
Omega & Chandra Symbols
The Sun is in the 21st degree of Sagittarius until about 3:15 pm (New York time).
The Omega symbol for 21 Sagittarius is:
Deep in the jungle, travelers discover the ruins of an ancient city.
John Sandbach writes: “Even when engulfed by darkness, uncertainty and alienation, our own kind is out there, calling to us, sending us messages of hope and encouragement, if only we can let ourselves hear it. To realize such things, progressively as we evolve is as miraculous as the discovery of the ancient ruins of the Omega Symbol.”
This afternoon the Sun moves into the 22nd degree of Sag, which Mercury (retrograde) is currently activating. The Sun and Mercury will make exact conjunction in this degree at 8:47 pm EST, two hours before the Libra Moon completes her opposition to Uranus (the Enlightener) in Aries.
In his interpretation of the Chandra symbol for this degree, Sandbach says:
“There are dark energies we were never meant to take in. In this degree, suddenly and surprisingly they release, and in a way that is harmless, even humorous and delightful. In the original nursery rhyme there were four and twenty of them, twenty-four being the number of the soul’s complete journey. And so this is not just a partial release of what Eckard Tolle calls the “pain body,” but gradually and eventually a complete release of it.”
The Omega symbol for 22 Sagittarius is:
A flamenco dancer. As he stamps his purple boots, small clouds of dust are raised.
The degree angel for this degree is AA Ariel: “Absolute Certainty, Perceiver and Revealer”.
“A passionate and insistent self-expression is found here. This degree has the ability to stir up energy and to bring transformation to situations by provoking others to see them in a new way. It helps others to get back in touch with what they’re really feeling, and to go ahead and express themselves. Affirming once again the ground of our being, self-assurance is renewed and we’re ready to move on.”
Interestingly, these two degrees function as each other’s seed degree. I don’t fully understand how Sandbach’s ‘seed degrees’ are calculated yet, but this is the first time I’ve encountered this with adjacent degrees.
I encourage you to read John Sandbach’s full interpretation for these degrees on his blog.
