Pallas Athene is the Goddess of Wisdom who generates mental and artistic creations from her mind. Sprung from the head of her father Zeus, she represents the principle of creative intelligence. It can symbolize capacity for strategy, quest for clarity and truth, sense of justice, the acquisition of skill and ingenuity in useful arts, and the ability to channel life energy for healing. Just as she can in women, Pallas can signify either a man’s rejection of the feminine within himself, or the drive to integrate the opposite sexual polarity into his psyche. The placement of Pallas can also suggest how a man perceives the strong, independent women in his life. This usually has to do with his sense of his own competence.
Pallas Athena is about discernment, recognizing patterns, father daughter relationships and being in control of your emotions. She also tries to resolve disputes and to restore justice where it is missing.
