Sass Access Denied

I was following the Sass tutorial video, and tried to access the test.scss data, which I saved on my desktop, through console, but somehow this message popped up, and I am not quite sure how I should fix this....

aois-air:Desktop aoiasano$ /Users/aoiasano/Desktop/test.scss -bash: /Users/aoiasano/Desktop/test.scss: Permission denied

It will be super helpful if any of you can help with this!

Thank you!

it just means your user account has no permissions to access this file from terminal.

i could tell you exactly how to modify permissions OR you can find out yourself (it's best to know what your doing when using terminal) by doing Console Foundations deep dive in section Users and Permissions Jim Hoskins explains everything you need to know about permissions!
