Sabian Symbols: A veiled prophet of power
This universal idea is best expressed through planets in
Capricorn 7 (6° - 7°)
Typically inhabiting the margins of society, some people are
gifted to see what is coming and announce it to their group
Whether it is a small family or a world religion, a group that exists has its own identity and purposes, which are above and beyond the individuals that comprise the group. There is a ‘group soul’ acting as the group consciousness and communicating its perceptions and plans in some symbolic form. This is the ‘god’ of the group whose face is the collective projection of group members and whose earthly voice is carried by those whose openness, faith and sensitivity enable them to be a medium for its messages.
A VEILED PROPHET SPEAKS, SEIZED BY THE POWER OF A GOD

Few learn to see what is the essential nature of existence; these people succeed
Supremacy occurs when we have something like wealth, knowledge, skills, connections or a position of importance. For example, we find that reading the future has power. The veiled prophet of power is a person who keeps quiet about their inner facility to know what others cannot know about what is to come to pass.
For us to feel a sense of self-fulfilment, we need to achieve something in life. We need to demonstrate our skills and principles, and particularly our ability to overcome challenges. Each personality approaches this very differently because of the myriad differences in experience and background. Yet, in each and every case, there is a vast potential of untapped inner resources to call upon.
We must be careful and learn how to distinguish true values from false. Since this ability is not intuitively obvious, and must be determined mostly by trial and error, there is real danger of unhelpful alignments with inappropriate people and situations.
The strains and turmoil that life throws up are constant and often almost too much to bear, yet we must endeavour to persevere, and in so doing develop mastery. Without challenges, there is no grit to stimulate the need for such a high degree of capability, yet it is a profoundly important quality and well worth the heavy price we have to pay for it.
An exceptional ability arises – the gift of being able to organise effort along any given line of accomplishment. Achievement is no longer a mystery; it is a series of well-understood steps in a given direction of focus, motivated by singular will.
Also, it becomes perfectly clear to us what it is that motivates others around, and indeed the extent of their will to achieve. This veiled insight into the machinery of power has prophetic qualities; we can see, with greater clarity, what must be, and we can see this earlier than most people.
We can learn what the essential nature of existence is. It is that life itself responds fully and adeptly to all of the psychological and physical requirements of anyone, provided they have the passion and insight to expect – truly expect – resolution of their needs and desires.
