Sapientia

Sapientia

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Sapientia, asteroid 275 (the 275th asteroid to be discovered, on April 15, 1888), is approximately 108 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 4.6 years. Its name is a personification of a Latin word for wisdom. If other elements of an natal chart concur, Sapientia shows wisdom with respect to the matters indicated by its sign and house position. When afflicted, it may suggest false wisdom. When prominent in a chart (e.g., conjunct the Sun or the ascendant), it may show a wise person or an individual who seeks wisdom.

Estas circunstancias simbolicas del lenguaje de lo sagrado se potencian en la lengua culta de Agustin toda vez que la expresion latina Sapientia (sabiduria) contiene en su raiz etimologica una relacion con el sentido del gusto, y por ende con el acto primordial de la alimentacion y nutricion, como una base fundamental no solo de la vida organica, sino tambien de los rituales religiosos de todos los tiempos y que se encarna tambien en el misterio cristologico del 'verbo que se hizo carne'.
