We can see that Toxic Masculinity has begun to fall. The Harvey Weinstein now James Toback and expect many more men in power to be called out and fall from power as WOMEN speak out to rebalance sexual abuse by men in power everywhere in the world. Yes the return of the Divine Feminine is on its way. What women want is equality in relationships and love.

The force of evolution will inevitably induce the release of any illusions which stand in its way. When these releases come, the extent to which we benefit from them depends on our reactions to them. If we can flow with them and allow their force to loosen and clear whatever in us we are ready to let go of, we will receive maximum benefit from their healing potential. This degree acutely senses change and knows how to subtly foster it.
Chandra Symbol “A woman carefully counting the beans in a jar.” Through this simple act of quantification, this degree seeks a sign, a portent that manifests in the numerological significance in the number of beans. This is one of the simplest and homeliest of all the symbols, but it contains more than what appears on the surface. For the beans have a limited number, and yet planted and allowed to grow and produce through an indefinite and potentially infinite number of cycles they are unlimited. And so this degree is about perceiving the infinite within the seemingly limited reality around oneself, and this simple act of perception actually fosters the infinite’s healing force.
In both the Omega and Chandra symbols of this degree very little action is taken on the part of the people involved. The minimization of DOING here magnifies the potency of BEING and witnessing, which subtly enhances and supports the forces of evolution.
Pleiadian Symbol: Lost children are found many years later. They haven’t aged.
What he thought was an inner trembling turned out to be an outer trembling. The earth was shivering as if cold, or as if it had had a vague, unpleasant dream.
Abruptly the quivering subsided.
Falling back asleep he thought for a moment of tidal waves, of interrupted waterfalls, of rivers changing their course, of stones succumbing to gravity. Below him, he felt the earth thinking of stars. This is what it always did to calm itself.”

This degree is inherently patient and knows that it may take a long time before its gifts are appreciated. Its also aware that when people are exposed to something again and again over a long period they can begin to take that thing for granted, and so sometimes its best to hold back what one has to offer until the time is right to bring it forth.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A black leopard with green eyes.” The painting is stored in the dark, the leopard is a creature of the dark. Green is the color of emeralds, the gem of Mercury, the planet of communication. The artist’s painting was painted to communicate something, but not it is not doing that – it dwells in the dark. Until it can communicate once again – open its eyes to the light, and reaffirm its power, which is like that of the leopard’s.
Sometimes when something is hidden it is a good thing – later, when it is re-revealed we may see it with fresh eyes. This degree knows the power of waiting for the right time to act, the right time to bring forth its ideas. It uses the power of darkness and silence to enhance what is eventually and finally communicated.
Pleiadian Symbol: A glorious dragon of many colors embroidered onto a flag.
A spring festival. The participants are in a state of ecstatic frenzy. (Chandra Symbol)”
