Unicorn in the Stars

“The sign of the hour for those with
The eyes to see, the mind to know…
When the word, image or sound
Is mentioned. It’s a sign…to watch…”

“A season of signs…unicorns…dreams…
Lights in the sky…”

From: “The Lore of the Unicorn” by Odell Shepard
Published 1930

Shepard interprets the capture of a unicorn:

“In its simpler versions this interpretation likens the unicorn directly to Christ: its one horn is said to signify the unity of Christ and the Father; its fierceness and defiance of the hunter are to remind us that neither Principalities nor Powers nor Thrones were able to control the Messiah against His will; its small stature is a symbol of Christ’s humility and its likeness to a kid of His association with sinful men. The virgin is held to represent the Virgin Mary and the huntsman is the Holy Spirit acting through the Angel Gabriel. Taken as a whole, then, the story of the unicorn’s capture typifies the Incarnation of Christ.”
