Once the character has chosen the Seat of Power they must then choose one power from the Celestial Powers List. The Power’s Casting Cost must not be more than their FOC DT. <— OLD Rule kept until decided new rule will replace it.

eg. FOC of d4 cannot have a power of more than Casting Cost 4.

The Power must also have the Seat of Power as a source.

As well as this power the Aspect also provides a permanent +1 Modifier to Resist against powers that have the source of the Aspects Seat of Power.

So if Targos had an Aspect of Thea. He would receive a +1 MOD against all Powers that have a Thea Source.
