Capricorn 19. In the night, someone peering into a dark window. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Responsible

(Degree Angel: VEHUIAH (vay-HOO-ee-YAH) Time Travel, Will and New Beginnings)


There’s a deep curiosity here – a desire to understand the private lives and deepest innermost worlds of other people. This degree is investigative and often secretive. It has the ability to be unobtrusive even to the point of invisibility. And, hopefully what will result will be discoveries and uncoverings that will heal and advance the world.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A half-eaten piece of bread.” Will the rest of the bread be eaten, or has one had enough? This degree is about being aware of what is required to sustain life, and of knowing the difference between necessary nourishment versus indulgent gratification. It is a degree that promotes simplicity and economy in all things – a paring down to the barest essentials, in an attempt to reveal the minimum that is needed for survival.

It asks, “what can be done away with, and what is indispensable?” Often the dividing line between these two things is not clear, and can be easily distorted by fears and and desires. Which is why this degree so often, then, becomes the person of the corresponding Omega Symbol, who peers into the darker corners of the psyche in an attempt to discover the truth.

Pleiadian Symbol: A child carefully carrying an immense stack of books.  The power of innocence to wield knowledge.

Azoth Symbol: Small animals cautiously investigating each other.  Primal, direct encounter and sensitivity to potential threat.  Approach to others through one’s instinct. 

Seed degree: Scorpio 16. A scientist using gravity waves to communicate with other universes. (Omega Symbol). To attempt to connect with other realities eventually gives rise to the impulse to explore directly, even when danger may lurk and when we may not be able to clearly see our way toward what we’re exploring.

Charon ferries the dead across the river Styx. (Chandra Symbol). To go through any death experience always helps us to understand better what we do and don’t need, and what will and won’t nurture us.

Fulfillment degree: 25 Aries. A man studying a sequence of random numbers. (Omega Symbol). Our curiosity leads us into the search for recurrence, meaning, and messages in whatever we encounter.

Bees returning to their hives. (Chandra symbol). Finding satiety brings us back to our home and to communion with whatever beings we come to identify as our family.


In ancient Peth the unknown was a faceless God who was said to stalk at night and peer into the windows of those who slept.  If one wanted to encounter the unknown in dreams the wise advised that it was best to sleep in total darkness, as a means of inviting this faceless (and nameless god — only referred to as “She”) –into one’s dreams.
