Capricorn 2. A painting which causes those who see it to become silent. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Sensitive

(Degree Angel: POYEL (poi-YEL) Dispelling Anger, Fortune and Support)


This degree knows how to induce receptivity in other people, that is, how to get them to receive information more deeply, through catching them off guard.. Often without knowing it it has a compelling presence and can trigger thoughts and awareness in other people which it didn’t mean to. It can open up new and unexpected ways of seeing.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A wisdom tooth that has been removed from someone’s mouth. It is plated with gold.” This is an image of the essentializing of truth, the distilling of wisdom down to its simplest, most concentrated form – like the painting of the Omega Symbol that is so compelling as an experience it silences all debate, speculation and criticism. This degree is about cutting away the dead wood of knowledge – paring down to what is clear. What we think we know is so often very different from what we really know. But when stress is great enough and crisis occurs, we find out the difference between the two, and the eternal is clearly separated from the illusory. The truth of this degree is that we eventually we realize that we are the wisdom we seek.

Pleiadian Symbol: A mysterious colored window used to contact other worlds.

Azoth Symbol: An idea, like a tree, branches out in many different directions.

Seed degree: 22 Aries. A gentle, mild-mannered author who writes horror stories. (Omega Symbol). When we exorcise our fears we can come to a much deeper appreciation of the significance of what we’ve created in our life.

Puppets coming alive at night. (Chandra Symbol). When our imaginings take on a life of their own we are able to gain deep insight into ourselves.

Fulfillment degree: 23 Scorpio. A man repairing damaged inlays of precious stones on the Taj Mahal. (Omega Symbol). Entering the silence we return with a renewed ability to preserve and perfect all that is most beautiful and wonderful in our life.

A collection of dolls. (Chandra Symbol). Attuning to the deepest and purest wisdom allows us to see how personality works and to discern all its multifarious manifestations.


I am unable to tell you the name of a great masterpiece in the Museum of Peth, for it causes all those who see it to become silent, to such an extent that no historians have ever mentioned it or described it. It is a most miraculous phenomenon that a created object has the power to repel both praise and criticism. I have travelled to Peth many times to view it, and have sat before it for hours, studying its subtleties.

All I may tell you about it is that the silence it creates in the mind of the beholder seems to have the power to transfer itself to all other perceptions experienced by the one having viewed it, for many have reported that by looking at it, all facets of their world become freed (at least for a time) of words and thoughts, so that they glow, as if a new reality had been born through them.
