LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > hellenic > greek
ORIGIN:
greek 
NAME ROOT:
KAíNUMI / KéKASMAI ANḗR ‎/ ANDRóS > KASSáNDRA
NATIVE NAME ROOT:
KAíNUMI (Καίνυμι) KéKASMAI (κέκασμαι) ANḗR ‎(ἀνήρ) ANDRóS ‎(ἀνδρός) KASSáNDRā ‎(Κασσάνδρᾱ)
MEANING:
This name derives from the Ancient Greek name “Kassándrā ‎(Κασσάνδρᾱ)”, composed of two elements: “kaínumi (Καίνυμι) kékasmai (κέκασμαι)” (excell, surpass, transcend) plus “anḗr ‎(ἀνήρ) andrós ‎(ἀνδρός)” (man “adult male). In turn the name means “the one who shines and excels over man (a person who makes predictions which are never believed but turn out to be true)”. In Greek mythology, Cassandra was the daughter of king Priam and queen Hecuba of Troy. Her beauty caused Apollo to grant her the gift of prophecy. Kassandros son of Antipatros; (350–297 BC), was a Greek Hellenistic king of Ancient Macedon (305–297 BC), son of Antipater, and founder of the Antipatrid dynasty. He was the namesake of his paternal uncle, Cassander.

Chakra Number:
8: The number of the Chakra "Etheric Body"

At the base of the skull or Cerebellum and is also found to be linked to the causal chakra just above the crown chakra to the left in the etheric body. This center enables the individual to achieve advanced out-of-body projection, etheric projection, spiritual perception, and spiritual wisdom. I use the word spiritual here because these abilities and ideas are larger than the self and the earth and is were the ability of remote viewing resides.

Color meaning:

Black is the color of the hidden, the secretive and the unknown, creating an air of mystery. It keeps things bottled up inside, hidden from the world. In color psychology the meaning of the color black is protection from external emotional stress. It creates a barrier between itself and the outside world, providing comfort while protecting its emotions and feelings, and hiding its vulnerabilities, insecurities and lack of self-confidence. In times of fear and uncertainty black contains the energy of the threatening unknown. In a positive state, black is seen as a restful emptiness into which anything may emerge and disappear once again. It is also mysterious, providing a sense of potential and possibility.
