Pallas Athene (often simply Athena), in Greek mythology, is the goddess of wisdom, born from the head of Zeus (Jupiter). Pallas was strong-willed and would act on her own knowledge and wisdom, and preferred artful diplomacy rather than conflict, but was ready to fight if need be. Pallas is commonly called both the Warrior Woman and the Peaceful General. The goddess Athena was derived from the Egyptian Neith, matron of the city of Sais in the Western Nile Delta.

Pallas expresses the artful application of creative intelligence for solution beyond duality’s paradox—from beyond the judgments of one side verses the other. Pallas invites the integration of our past experience in duality—from having been on both sides of the fence at one time or another, and to claim that experience as wisdom. She invites us to use that wisdom as a foundation to express nonjudgmental courageous solution beyond life’s paradoxes created by opposing forces. Mature Pallas expresses from the balance of the masculine and feminine principles, from a unified awareness. She is applier and defender of social justice, and accepts personal responsibility for having co-created one’s experience; i.e. the resolution of victim consciousness. Pallas implores us to look at the apparent paradoxes occurring in our own lives as reflective, like a mirror, of that which is occurring within in our selves.

Pallas imparts the expression of intellect in craft and inventiveness, and an ability to link, unify and bring pieces together. She imparts wonderful perceptual and organizational skills and a capacity for pattern recognition, strategic planning and public relations. Pallas often has a prominent placement in the charts of artists and political reformists.

These images were taken by ESO’s SPHERE (Spectro-Polarimetric High-contrast Exoplanet REsearch) instrument on ESO’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) at the Paranal Observatory, Chile. These strikingly-detailed views reveal four of the millions of rocky bodies in the main asteroid belt. Clockwise from top left, the asteroids are 29 Amphitrite, 324 Bamberga, 2 Pallas, and 89 Julia. Pallas is about 510 km wide, the third largest asteroid in the main belt. (10 Hygiea is the fourth-largest asteroid in the Solar System by volume and mass, 407.12 km).

Pallas issues can express as spiteful withdrawal, which ultimately can manifest as self-sabotage due to judgments about use of power or awry creative / sexual energy. It can also express as righteousness, judgment and invalidation of opposite or alternative views, lashing out with a vengeance. Pallas issues can express as an imbalance in the masculine and feminine aspects of self, such as sexual imbalances, dyslexic and perceptual problems. Pallas governs the Liver / Spleen balance (red / violet), which is reflexed to the equilibrium and dizziness centre of the brain. Pallas significantly effects emotional and physical equilibrium.

Pallas Imbalances can also expesss symptoms such as righteousness and self-importance; judgement and invalidation of opposite or alternative views, arrogance, fear of success, cowardice, inability to discern, rejection of honor or credit . Pallas issues can also manifest as rape, incest, or physical abuse situations created by sexuality imbalances held at a soul level, which can perpetuate confused masculine / feminine principles at the incarnate level, or a denial of sexuality.

Pallas teaches us to participate beyond judgment of this side verses that; beyond victim consciousness. Pallas invites us to honor that we co-create all of life’s experience, and that we have been on both sides of the fence at one time or another in our soul’s embracing incarnational experience. Pallas asks us to claim the wisdom from our past experience in duality, no matter what it was, and to use that experiential wisdom as a foundation of strength to express from. This is to have a solid Ti Chi stance, equally balanced on the left and right (spleen-liver / feminine-masculine). Pallas asks for artistic expression of our creative intelligence for solution beyond duality’s paradox.
