The word Alhena is usually translated as Brand, or Mark, on the right side of a camel’s, or horse’s, neck, as defined by the Persian astronomer Al Biruni (973-1048 A.D.)
This star has been seen as a challenging gift by the ancients.
The following insights are inspired by the book Starlight Elixirs and Cosmic Vibrational Healing
Alhena has the ability to rapidly change ways of thinking that shift perception. This helps with the ability to see things in a whole new way bringing greater consciousness to any situation. This supports the decision-making process and supports the chakras in the feet.
This star has the ability to change plant and animal structures rapidly. When ever a planet is near and especially during a total solar eclipse this process is magnified. Alhena supports perseverance when the going gets tough raising our vibration by expanding our perspective including seeing new ideas that promote progress.
From the 1st Century AD by Manilius
“From the Twins come less laborious callings and a more agreeable way of life, provided by varied song and voices of harmonious tone, slender pipes, the melodies inborn in strings and the words fitted thereto: those so endowed find even work a pleasure. They would banish the arms of war, the trumpet’s call, and the gloom of old age: theirs is a life of ease and unfading youth spent in the arms of love. They also discover paths to the skies, complete a survey of the heavens with numbers and measurements, and outstrip the flight of the stars: nature yields to their genius, which it serves in all things. So many are the accomplishments of which the Twins are fruitful.” [Manilius, Astronomica, 1st century AD. p.281.]
