Phase 55. Thought into Action (Mem Bet Hey)
Angel: MEBAHIAH (me-BA-hee-YAH) Intellectual Lucidity
Capricorn 1. A man mesmerized as he reads words glowing with light. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Experimental
(Degree Angel: Mebahiah (me-BA-hee-YAH) Thought Into Action, Intellectual Lucidity)
This degree has an ability to see clearly the spiritual message behind any and all information. When he tries though to communicate this to other people he may find it difficult to do so. He needs to realize that others are not on his wavelength, and that he may have to find indirect ways of communicating if he is to be effective at it.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A canopy bed with curtains.” This symbol signifies a private place in which to dream and retreat from the world. It may seem like a strangely introverted symbol for such a social and gregarious sign as Capricorn, but the fact is that unless this very private inward place is established as a base there can be no effective operating out in the world. This degree has a deep rooting within, which supports it greatly in holding fast to its true self. When there is a deep going within, as there is here, there can be a far going without without losing sight of one's core. This is the type of spiritual fortitude that can result from the man of the Omega Symbol taking in the words glowing with light.

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.

Capricorn 3. A reference book on poisons. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Receptive
(Degree Angel: Nemamiah (ne-MAM-mee-YAH) Listening to Your Soul, Discernment)
This degree is fascinated by the many manifestations of negativity, and looks continually for ways to counteract each different type. It is fascinated by the tremendous variety of disharmonies that exist in the world and all the multifarious problems they can create. The knowledge it accumulates can be used to help others in many different ways, but it has to beware of pessimism and cynicism that could potentially accumulate within its own self.
The Chandra symbol for this degree is “A woman sniffing pepper and sneezing violently.” This is a degree of direct and immediate reaction. It is instantly rejecting of anything that it senses might cause it discord. If it is willing to look deeply into itself so as to come to an understanding about why it has the strong reactions it does, it will be able to let go of them and hence clear karma. It is important to remember that all poisons are simply a reflection of fears and other types of negativity inside ourselves.
It also has a strong sense of what is wrong, and which things are toxic and to what extent. This can be very helpful so long as it proceeds to healing and does not become stuck in being addicted to its problems.

A woman wearing many tiny bells. (Chandra Symbol). In rejecting irritants we find ourselves stimulated and clarified.
Capricorn 4. As a cliff erodes, a temple is in danger of collapsing. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Responsible
(Degree Angel: Yeialel (YAY-a-LEL) Letting Go, Mental Force)
Needs change, and when they do, structures that may have been depended on for a long time need to change too, to meet those new needs. That is what this degree is aware of. It taps into undercurrents of feeling and can see how these are eroding the landscape of human thought. At its best its capable of suggesting means of change that take into account the long range and which are practical.
The Chandra symbol for this degree is “Footprints in the snow.” This degree is psychically aware of energy traces that have been left both in this life and ones that linger from other lifetimes. The question is, shall it follow one of these, or strike out on its own. It has the persistent feeling, always in the back of its mind that all this has happened before. This feeling is present so that hopefully it may gain more awareness of why things are unfolding the way they are, and this time either work through them or overcome them, so they can be let go of, clearing the way for further growth.

(Degree Angel: Harahel (HA-ra-HEL) Umbilical Cord, Intellectual Richness)
This degree knows how to combine imagination and reality in a harmonious way. It imbues whatever it touches with its own unique aura, which brings out the vividness and beauty of them, as well as expressing the originality of the self. It is an antidote for dreariness and commonness, for it causes others to realize the spiritual elements at work in everything around them.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Tall dark cypress trees in a cemetery.” This degree is about getting above all death and change so that it can be seen as necessary and important in the whole picture of existence. The uplifting and enduring presence of the cypress trees in the cemetery bring hope and joy to the scene, the same way that the colors used by the photographer in the corresponding Omega symbol also do.
Pleiadian Symbol: Long boats on the way to festivities down river.
Azoth Symbol: People walking in a cool arcade of stone arches.
