your daily demon: barbatos

This infernal grand duke rules thirty legions of spirits with four subordinate companies of kings in his control—governing from today through 29 April, when the Sun is in Sagittary (☉♐︎, the constellation of the Centaur within Taurus). Formerly of the angelic rank of Virtues, this demon that presents as a wizened, bearded man as his name implies (Latin barbatus), retains insight of all things past, present and future and holds the office of interpreting the singing of birds and other animal calls and cries and seeing through the enchantment of other. Barbatos is countered with the angel Cahetel.
