octavia

FEMININE FORM:
octavius, octavio
LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > italic > latin
ORIGIN:
latin 
NAME ROOT:
OCTō > OCTāVĭUS / OCTāVĭāNUS
MEANING:
This name derives from the Latin “octō > Octāvĭus / Octāvĭānus“, referring to the gens Octavia, a plebeian family at Rome, which was raised to patrician status by Caesar during the 1st century BC. The first member of the gens to achieve prominence was Gnaeus Octavius Rufus. During the Roman era it was customary to give the name “Octavius” in honor of the eighth son. The eighth month in the old Roman calendar, October retained its name (from the Latin "octo", meaning "eight"). Octavius, along with Solutor and Adventor are particularly venerated in Turin, where they dedicated the church of the Holy Martyrs, which houses the relics since 1584. The liturgical memorial is set for 20 November.

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.
