Meta. The soul, or feminine, in man, in its fineness of ability to perceive, or to receive intuitively (fragrant, aromatic, pleasant; the sense of smell bespeaks perception, discrimination, intuition), spiritual understanding and guidance. Even the soul in its seemingly material aspect is intuitive, and is much quicker to feel instinctively and know the truth about things than is the outer reasoning quality, the masculine, in the individual.
