Heartaches 9: Magic Lesson 3 Comments My, my, Gandalf, you’ve certainly changed. Very exotic. What does that spell mean?? Google Translate has it as being Latin, meaning “Open the add table succor shield” Somehow I don’t think that’s right. Terra is Earth the planet or earth the ground, Ianus is the same as Janus (the two-headed god of the new year) because the Latin I was pronounced as a J, (so I don’t know how he’s being criticized for saying a J instead of an I…) and as for the rest I can only speculate. Perhaps since aperito is like aperture (Let’s see, Google, what does aperture mean when it’s not on a camera? Oh, a slit or a hole) it might mean something about opening… so aperito terra could mean “I open the earth”(as in an earthquake, I’d wager). Adaugeo sounds like adage, which is a saying… maybe “I speak of Janus”? Contego could be context… or setting… and traba is almost definitely work because it looks just like the Spanish word trabajo. I… set work? Set at work? Set the scene for work? Sooo… I open the earth I speak of Janus I prepare to work Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
