Capricorn 9. A woman thinks of all the things that have died and rotted to make the soil
TITLE: COMPREHENDING AND HENCE BEING LIBERATED FROM THE WEIGHT OF THE WORLD
A famous female alchemist of Aab, Maara Mirir, was said to be able to take a handful of soil in her hand and by holding it to her ear hear the voices of years gone by, and the voices of plants that had dwelled in the meadows and gardens of former times. In this way she learned many unsuspected healing properties of plants, who she said, had grown wise enough to tell her of their powers by laying in the earth for so many years.
