Pallas, the Guardian Deity of Athens

I feel compelled to shout this from every roof top imaginable, Pallas is right here with us.

Pallas, the guardian deity of Athens.

Snow-capped Olympus shook to its foundation.
The glad earth re-echoed her martial shout.
The billowy sea became agitated.
Helios, the sun-god, arrested his fiery steeds.
Course to welcome this wonderful emanation.
Pallas was at once admitted into the assembly of the gods.
Henceforth took her place as the most faithful and sagacious of all her father's counsellors.

The myth of Pallas Athena described by Homer in one of his hymns.

Pallas = creative intelligence and strategy.
Intelligence relates directly to the ability to perceive patterns.

The interrelatedness of concepts.

The more objects a juggler can keep in the air, the more skilled he is.
The more concepts a person can correlate simultaneously the smarter they are.
Visualize the whole,  take it apart and reassemble it in your mind.
Without the aid of physical parts, you can recreate it in reality.

  1. Great Article!

    I have the same placement (Very tight Pallas conjunct Ascendant) in Gemini, also Retrograde.

    Pattern recognition, ability to see the bigger picture, dexterity are all the things that come to mind with an Pallas/Ascendant placement.
    Also, regarding physical appearance, I’ve read that an androgynous appearance is quite common? Maybe it’s the balance of masculine and feminine energies…

    I have a few opposing planets in the 6th & 7th house (Venus, Neptune,Mercury, Uranus)

    I’ve concluded that I ‘see’ and understand things differently than those around me but growth and development comes from respecting other people’s views and beliefs.

    Keep up the great work 🙂
