Capricorn 7. A guidebook to an ancient city. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Sensitive

(Degree Angel: UMABEL (OO-ma-BEL) Water, Affinity and Friendship)


This degree is good at pointing out the structures of things to other people, and at clarifying information. It wants others to understand the significance of things, and to see how the past has produced the results of the present. It is especially adept at bringing forth lost or forgotten information which can enrich present knowledge.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A satyr gazing at his reflection in a pond.” To peer into one’s animal side looking back at you from the depths of the subconscious, and to befriend it – this is what this symbol is trying to do. If you try to deny or ignore this energy, you will always be drawn back to it, as it will be drawn to you. If you try to civilize it, it will elude you. If you are timid or fearful, the vision of this primitive you can be frightening. The more you can own it and love it, though, the stonger you will connect yourself to the joy and power of your earth being. The challenge is to accept and not complexify – to make friends with and integrate this wild inner being. Then you will deeply have learned the secrets of the ancient city of the Omega Symbol.

Pleiadian Symbol: A man secretly writing down his visions.

Azoth Symbol: In a river people washing away the imprints of memories.

Seed degree: Gemini 22. A painting that, once it is seen, cannot be remembered. (Omega Symbol). And so you have to keep looking again until you see your satyr self in the pool.

A young girl is sold to a sultan. (Chandra Symbol). She must look into the ancient guide book of her karma to free herself from bondage.

Fulfillment degree: Aries. 24. Beautiful expressive lines flowing out of a pencil. (Omega Symbol). When we assimilate the ancient city which is ourself, we may then allow to flow from it wonderful expressions.

A harp which plays itself. (Chandra Symbol). The satyr and its reflection play on each other, making fable music in the forest.


The only tourists who came to the city of Rintaal were those who had lived there in former lives. And it so happened that every time one of them were given the magical guidebook to that city, what they found in it was a history of their own past life in the city, showing the places they lived, and telling the details of their life there.

Some of the travellers to Rintaal began to have memories and recognitions when they read the guidebook and saw the sights, while others only found the experience to be like the reading of a mythical fable of some strange and distant person who had lived long ago.
