-there is also a male power of Tresum, the sun power, per Diana

-Grace tells Van that she will be able to read the book when she’s ready, the text will be ‘released’ to her
-female energy is moon and water; male energy is sun and fire
-Libra Solstice: power over time itself (Diana); an Avatar of power may right what’s wrong (Ambrosius); three nights from now an Avatar will stand on the Tresum stone at solstice and get a chance to go back in time and change one thing for the better (Diana); Rite of the Libra Solstice - to achieve the Libra Solstice, the Avatar most bring power beyond the individual; the bonded Aspirant supplies the power of the Tresum community... (Van reading from the parchment)
-being an heiress of Tresum is about obeying your Avatar until it’s your turn to be obeyed (per Grace)
