Sagittarius 26. A candle mysteriously undisturbed by wind.

On the promontory of Aornus, a place sacred to the winds — for they blow there continually — burns a candle whose flame is utterly steady and which seems impervious to any disturbance of the air.  Daily this candle is replaced, and though the winds roar forever around it it seems not to notice.

How is this possible?  Irnad says it is not due to any magical properties of the candle, but is rather the winds’ way of acknowledging that this candle is meant for them, is burned as an offering to their power, and honoring the gift offered to them, protect it to show their gratitude.
