Learning the Greek Alphabet Oracle: Upsilon
Updated: May 11
Welcome back to the Learning the GAC series. This week we move on to the 20th letter, Upsilon!
The affair holds a noble undertaking. - Apollonius Sophistes
Upsilon is a symbol that tells us that there is work to be done, but that it is meaningful and important work. This symbol represents some problem that needs to be resolved, or some deed that needs to be undertaken. Taking action in this instance is honorable and virtuous. This symbol almost feels like the opposite of Sigma. Instead of being told to stop, we’re told to take action, and that moving forward with our work is a good decision. It’s one of the symbols that gives us direction in how we should proceed in instead of just giving us insight into the current situation.
A poem to help memorize the meaning of Upsilon could be:
The work ahead.
It is virtuous.
