Metaphysical meaning of Ashteroth-karnaim (mbd)
Ashteroth-karnaim, ash'-te-roth-kärna'-;m (Heb.)--horned Ashteroth; Astarte of the two horns; Ashteroth of two peaks.
Meta. A state of consciousness in man that attributes double honor, authority, exaltation, and power to purely intellectual understanding and capacity. In this state of thought man does not recognize that God instead of intellect is the source of intelligence. The intellect borrows all its real light from Spirit, just as the moon, which has no light of its own, reflects light from the sun. (Ashteroth refers to the moon, or intellect, while karnaim--two horns or peaks--suggests exaltation and power.)
