1198 Atlantis

_________________________________________________________________

279 Thule:
Thule was a legendary island in the far north, similar to Atlantis, supposedly the center of a lost, high-level civilization. But not all secrets of that civilization had been completely wiped out. Those that remained were being guarded by ancient, highly intelligent beings (similar to the "Masters" of Theosophy or the White Brotherhood).
The truly initiated could establish contact with these beings by means of magic-mystical rituals.
The "Masters" or "Ancients" allegedly would be able to endow the initiated with supernatural strength and energy.
With the help of these energies the goal of the initiated was to create a race of Supermen of "Aryan" stock who would exterminate all "inferior" races.

_________________________________________________________________

2696 Magion:
Mageon, or Magion: the land of the Gnomes
The Land of the Gnomes, or Magion/Mageon, is the area where Gnomelaguardia exists, where the Magonistic Elves dwell, where the horned elves lye, where the voles rage, where the Hob-Goblins live in Hob, and where many other kindoms, including the Dwarvish empire reside. This world has the largest diversity of intelligent species, and the second largest population of all the worlds. Middle Earth and its rapidly breeding humans hold this title. A large skill in Gnommish culture is Magery. You start out as a student, then become a shaman, then become a teacher, or wise man. From there you may become a magician, mage, wizard, necromacer, fortune-teller, sorcerer, herblorist, or astronomer. Magicians eventually learn to teleport, mages and sorcerers learn how to teleport or shape-shift, wizards learn how to control all four elements, fortune-tellers learn how to see past, present, and future, astronomers learn how to use the stars to change charts, herblorists learn how to cure anything and become plants, and necromacers learn how to travel to worlds of the dead. Magion holds an extremely large variety of practicers of magic, and a large understanding of the workings of the tree. By area, Magion is the largest world.

1309 Hyperborea (Norse/Greek):

According to esoterists, Hyperborea was the Golden Age polar center of civilization and spirituality.

****************************************

Hyperborea: Home of the ancient Indo-Europeans. Atlas came from there as well as Apollo and then obviously Artemis and so Leto and the Buto cult. Following the Persians and Aryans back into pre-history we also come to areas around the Caspian Sea and references to lands like Hyperborea, the legendary place of a sunny, green land in a perfect climate at the North Pole. Legends have emerged about entering Inner Earth there.

****************************************

In Greek mythology, Hyperborea was a fabulous realm of eternal spring located in the far north beyond the land of winter. Its people were a blessed, long-lived race free of war, hard toil, and the ravages of old age and disease.
Hyperborea was usually described as a continent-bound land, bordered by the great earth-encircling river Okeanos to the north, and the great peaks of the mythical Rhipaion mountains to the south. Its main river was the Eridanos, which flowed south, drawing its waters directly from the Okean-stream. The shores of this stream were lined by amber-bearing poplar trees and its waters inhabited by flocks of white swans. Blessed with eternal spring, the land producing two crops of grain per year. But most of the country was wild, covered with rich and beautiful forests, "the garden of apollo."
To the south the realm was guarded by the bitterly cold peaks of the near-impassable Rhipaion mountains. This was the home of Boreas, God of the north wind, whose chill breath brought winter to all the lands to the south--Skythia, Thrake, Istria, Celtica, Italy and Greece. The peaks of the mountains were also the home of Griffins (eagle-lions), and its valleys were inhabited by the fierce, one-eyed Arimaspoi tribe. Directly to the south lay Pterophoros, a desolate, snow-covered land cursed by eternal winter.
Hyperborea was a theocracy ruled by three priests of the God ApolloBoreades, were sons or descendants of the north wind Boreas. Their capital contained a circular temple dedicated to the God where hecatombs of asses were sacrificed in his honour. The musical race also celebrated his divinity with a constant festival music, song and dance. The hymns were joined by the sweet song of circling, white Hyperborean swans.
The land appears in several myths. The first of these was the story of Phaethon, the boy who tried to fly the chariot of the sun, but lost control, and was struck down by Zeus with a thunderbolt, His flaming body fell into the Hyperborean river Eridanos, where his mourning sisters, the Heliades, gathered and were transformed into amber-shedding poplar trees. His friend Kyknos, in his grief, leapt into the bitumen lake of Phaethon's fall, and was transformed into a swan. Hyperboreans afterwards leapt in this same very lake as they were approaching death and were transformed into singing white swans. The bird migrated to the Lydian river Kaystros and other places in the south, but remained mute beyond its homeland.
Perseus travelled to Hyperborea and was entertained by its folk when he went in search of certain Nymphs who guarded treasures of the Gods, or else the Graiai, swan-bodied hags who could reveal the location of Medousa.
Perseus' descendant Herakles made the same journey on two separate occassions. The first time was in his quest for the golden-horned deer of Artemis which fled north during the chase. The second time he was seeking Atlas to obtain the golden apples of Hesperides. The Titan stood holding the sky aloft in Hyperborea beneath the heavenly axis around which the constellations revolved. (Later? versions of this story place Atlas in North-West Africa).
Another body of stories connected the Hyperboreans with the founding of several important religious shrines in ancient Greece. In the distant past the God-blessed race was said to have sent many holy prophets and pilgrims into Greece.
On Delos, one story told how the pregnant Goddess Leto travelled south to the island from Hyperborea, accompanied by wolves, where she gave birth to the God Artemis-Eileithyia was summoned from the northern realm to assist with the labour.
After the event, the Hyperboreans despatched pilgrims to the island, five men known as the and maiden-priestesses of the Goddess. However, after several of the maidens were either raped or killed the Hyperboreans ended the pilgrimage, delivering their offerings instead through neighbouring tribes and peoples. Sometimes these are described as passing through Skythia on the Black Sea, at other times through Istria at the northern end of the Adriatic. Within Greece itself the offerings were carried from Dodona to Karystos in Euboia, then Tenos, before finally reaching Delos. The Athenians claimed they came to their town of Prasiai from Sinope on the Black Sea.
The next major shrine connected with the Hyperboreans was the oracle of apollo at Delphoi. The second of the temples built to the God was said to have been built by Hyperborean pilgrims of beeswax and (swan ?) feathers. When the army of the Gauls tried to seize the temple in historical times, phantoms of these prophets were said to have appeared on the battlefield, routing the invading army.
Finally they appear in the myths of the founding of the Olympic Games. It was said that when Herakles (either the Daktylos or the son of Zeus) established the festival in honour of Zeus he decided to adorn the grounds with holy trees. To this end he made a pilgrimage to Hyperborea to obtain sacred wild olives for the shrine.
Perhaps the most famous prophet of the Hyperboreans was a man named Abaris, who was given a magical arrow by the God Apollo on which he flew around the world performing miracles. Some say this arrow was the one which apollo had used to slay the Kyklopes, which he had hidden beneath a Hyperborean mountain.

3811 Karma:

Karma. Karmic connection. Karma can indicate a negative balance or positive balance. Positive Karmic events are sudden strokes of good fortune, chance meetings with a true love and so on. Negative Karmic events are like accidents, heart breaks, exposure to outbursts that seem unfair and financial losses. Retrograde Karma means you dished out more negative karma than positive karma in the mentioned areas.
*Note: 3811 adds up to 13, the date on which this Asteroid was discovered. He who masters 13 is given great power.
****************************************
Karma in the signs:

Karma in Aries: Destined for balance in creative impulses, egotism, self absorption [Did you pay enough attention to self in the past lives?], head wounds [being safe or getting them], argumentativeness, entrepreneurship in business ventures [Did you scuttle someone's business in the past life? Did you motivate to help someone succeed?] , independence and family values reform.

Karma in Taurus: Destined for balance in establishing a family, accumulating possessions, patience in projects [Did you stifle others projects in the past? Did you enable other's projects to proceed speedily in the past life?], enjoying creature comforts [Did you enjoy too much? Too less?], reacting to family survival mechanisms and coming to terms with musical talent.

Karma in Gemini: Destined for balance in the intellectual and communicative plane. Did you talk too much in the past? Was the talk useful or harmful? Did you deceive using fast wit? Did you write enlightening literature or books of facts? This placement also indicates experiences that help the individual guide social reform. A hidden law may help many innocents reclaim dues and one with Karma in Gemini may be destined to research this data and be of so much use to thousands. In the past life he may have been cheated because of ignorance.

Karma in Cancer: Destined for balance in emotions, financial security and basic survival. The Native may not have attained any financial security nor had a decent home life in the past. Karmic debts to the native are in getting money, home, emotional nurturing from the mother figure. Had he abused these, then he may have to pay others financial dues, nurture others and give emotional empathy to others because he did not do so in the past. Treating your mother well can be part of the destiny. This Native in the highest level can pay his dues by initiating child welfare, creche, reforms in maternal care, soup kitchens or be a philanthropist who gives away interest free loans.

Karma in Leo: In the Positive sense, this Native is very likely to have been a total pussycat in the past lives. Time to roar, time to be forced into expressing some creative aspect of Self, to wallow in the ego and enjoy romance and luck in gambling. Negatively aspected or retrograde, this means balancing experiences that cause the ego to suffer, public insults, shut ups, failure in speculation and lack of romance in life due to abuse of personality in the past lives.

Karma in Virgo: Destined to balance health issues, critical studies, routine work. Were you a miserly boss who made workers suffer? Did you neglect your health in the past? Did you work as a nurse who selflessly toiled? Depending on the good or bad of the past and the positive or negative of the present, this can be a very useful placement. Career success is assured for one who builds on the positive karma.

Karma in Libra: One of the most challenging placements. Destined to Balance and balance and balance, mentally or physically.
Every thought that is wrong may instantly be balanced by contradictory evidence. You may judge someone as wicked and proof may come that he is good. Watch out for guilt trips and pricks to the conscience. Best to never judge or label anyone but instead objectively analyze and assess with disclaimers.
Negative karmic experiences here include heart breaks owing to being too flirtatious in the past. Positive debts may mean a wonderful spouse and relationship in this life, wonderful surroundings and so on.

Karma in Scorpio: A rogue occultist or a dedicated surgeon? A black magician or a healer? A monk or a sex maniac/mass murderer? A challenging placement that can help fate plan a powerful destiny or a punishment of sinking to the lowest depths of despair. Emotional control is the ally for this native. Letting emotional hatred go out of control will set up a vicious cycle of karmic debts that never benefit anyone. Forgiveness is a fantastic asset. These natives must master breath control, meditation and some form of social service, at least mentally.

Karma in Sagittarius: Were you a religious fundamentalist or a social reformer? A corporate cheat or a philanthropist? Watch for experiences that balance your clumsiness, your kindness, your luck, your manner of speech and your friendships. If you are unkind in words even if you meant otherwise, the asteroid Karma will still make you feel the other persons emotions at your words. In the highest level, such people can become great religious reformers.

Karma in Capricorn: A very difficult placement. Retrograde and negatively aspected might indicate a corporate white collar criminal or big billionaire conspirator against the masses in a past lifeline. Greedy Ambition and status consciousness that sacrifices ethics and truth leads to humbling balances in this life. The native must practice generosity, inner and outer. He must treat all people with respect and must not be condescending to others. No misdeeds like ratting on fellow employees for promotions, for instant karmic punishment will follow. One must be wary of taxation problems and legal problems.
The Native must balance career and affection to family, and not let career be the only objective in life. Once positive loops are set and old karmic debts erased, this placement can bring large financial rewards. This will then become the new test. Is social service funded with the rewards? Is egotistical reputation concern mellowed? Is Status still given importance or character of people? Is ambition under control or do the past bad habits of power trips raise their ugly head again?
These natives can become Nation Builders or Global Corporate/Financial/Legal Reformers in the highest positive level.

Karma in Aquarius: Destined to balance their capabilities for humanitarian causes and to find guidance for individual reform. Were you a thinker who was too lazy? A mad scientist? An eccentric engineer who burnt his inventions because he did not get a patent? These natives will be prodded in this life with experiences that settle the old debts of neglect and inspire ideas of benefit. Negatively, they may have made many people uncomfortable with unrestrained wildness/rebelliousness in the name of individual freedom and in this life, their freedom may be curtailed. One must be wary of sudden events and accidents if there is a square to Uranus or Mars.
Karma in Pisces: The end of the karmic wheel! A native who could have transcended the highest Spiritual
realms of ecstasy or crawled through life as an alcoholic or drug abuser. This placement may also indicate that the native had mislead others in tpics of spirituality or deceived others by misusing compassion. Positively, this can be a native who was so selfless in thought and deed that this life will give a balance in the form of true knowledge or opening of the third eye/psychic powers and higher states of consciousness. Retrograde Karma here could mean chances of psychiatric illness, schizophrenia and more drug abuse. Great honesty, objectivity and self mastery is needed in this case for setting up the positive karmic loops to enable Neptunian rewards from this Asteroid placement.
Karma Aspects:
Karma squared by Mars or Saturn or Pluto is a typical indicator of negative karma. Karma trine Jupiter or Venus or Sun is a typical sign of positive karma. One must look carefully in the natal chart and come to the conclusion.

2598 Merlin (Anglo Saxon):

Merlin the magician, the mystical, magical wizard of wizards, helps you reawaken to the wise wizard and master magician you are, that we all are, and sometimes forget. He helps you remember that magic is your natural state, the rule rather than the exception to the rule.
Magicians and wizards play with molding, sculpting, shaping, and directing energy, with purpose. It is not for the squeamish. It takes great courage to know you are creator, to be a purposeful and more fully awakened conscious creator.

Merlin Archetype Energy:
We have in our hands, at our very finger tips, electomagnetic energy and the ability to create, shape or mold that energy into any reality we desire. It is the very same energy that creates and flows through the entire infinite cosmos.
Upon our births we came with an incredible force or energy Source. Sometimes we forget how powerful we are. Merlin reminds people to use the power that they already have and are using, to create even more magical lives.
Wizards are aware of their enormous power and make great use of their power by using it intentionally, deliberately, and on purpose. Mystical magicians know the energy they flow...it takes them right to where they want to go. Often, what happens is that people who aren't aware that they are a wizard, flow their energy to where they don't want to go, and that is what creates anything less than a magical life.
Merlin, through the many ways to play, brings into balance the masculine and feminine principles within all of us, both male and female. When we balance the whole of who we are, we come to know our natural state of magic, because we are then operating or functioning as a whole being. When we attempt or try to function or operate with only a part of the whole, we naturally feel less than wholly who we are, which doesn't feel very magical.
If we, as individuals or as a collective whole, integrate and thus apply the information given by Merlin, it can assist us in bringing us back into balance. When we are balanced we come from our center, our third eye point of view, and in that state we can create anything, easily and effortlessly, as life was intended to be.
The Merlin archetype energy is very much that of balancing both the feminine and masculine energy principles, by more fully integrating the feminine principle that has been largely forgotten by most. It assists people who want to get more of the things they desire in life, by going back to where all life begins. It is about going back to the womb of wisdom and the cave of creation, deep within. If one decides to remember all parts of the whole, our natural state of being, magic becomes the rule rather than the exception.
When the feminine part of self is reawakened and remembered, there one will find the realm of magic, wonder - the wizard, the alchemist, seer, sorcerer or mystical magician.
Merlin represents the occult sciences, that of the mystic arts and alchemy, knowing that anything can be changed, as we return to our natural magical state of being. We remember that our outer world is merely a mirror of what we project from within, awake or asleep to the awareness that we are creators, creating with every breath we take and with every beat of our hearts...one moment at a time...as time consists of only one moment.
Where does Merlin and Camelot exist, really? In the land of dreams and visions, where wizards love to play. They bring us to a feeling place that dwells within us, in our imaginative world, the world within, where all magic must begin. This is where we tune into and thus turn the key to creation. We unlock mysteries that tell us why we get what we get in life, and how we can then go about getting what most excites us.
People with strong Merlin placements want to remember the whole of who they are. They have had enough of lack, limitation, hard work, disease, struggle, suffering, and pain. They know there is something else to remember, and want to reawaken the power of the feminine principle. This has nothing to do with separation of the sexes ... but rather the fuller integration of the feminine energetic principle within all of us, both the male and female.
Merlin helps us to return to our power by balancing and thus functioning as the whole being we know we are. This information is so old that it seems all new again. And equally, it comes from our future...all happening in our NOW.
Merlin archetype energy loves word play, coming through in playful riddle, rhyme, and with a rhythm. He has a wonderful kind wise energy about him, and pulls people in, to remember who they really are.
****************************************

In a chart, Merlin can also represent magician's abilities.

8405 Asbolus:

Asbolus was a seer. Asbolus indicates development of and use of full intuitive faculties. It talks about how we handle extremes of adversity and danger as children. Survival and the recognition of having survived. Deep contact with something organic and essential -- the ability to endure and even thrive despite it all. Protection from victimhood. The blessing of protection even when it seems like none is there.

*****************************************
Development of and use of full intuitive faculties.

*****************************************

Ever have one of those moments in which you went against the flash of insight you received? Such situations become more glaring if life tosses back some sort of difficulty, like exactly the one of which you were forewarned. When you feel like leading the charge up some sort of symbolic mountain to take on a perilous task, do you ever ponder what the outcome might be?
Asbolus, another of our Centaur guides, represents the best in intuitive awareness. Asbolus reflects good counsel given and not heeded, or good advice received and not heeded. Usually the results of not heeding such input become immediately apparent. The urge to veto one of those insightful flashes falls under the visionary gaze of Asbolus. The insight just seemed to be a logical projection. There was nothing psychic about it. "What are the odds of that," Asbolus nudges again. The odds seem high at the moment. He urges absolute attentiveness to futuristic impressions. Stop while you're ahead. No need to take on challenges from an unnecessary argument or death-defying tasks, or push your personal limits. Back off, relax and contemplate.
Asbolus further represents the loss of guidance or wisdom because of alcohol. He points out how judgment, physical and otherwise, degrades when intoxicated. His alternative would suggest that when life feels all-consuming, reinvoke a ceremonial situation to clear the mind. This effort restores strong judgment that supports the spirit and reinstates the intuitive faculties to full potency. Regardless, following intuition remains his determined influence.


*****************************************

Laurence Lucas: "Cellular activation in resonance with centre of Earth producing visions, vision of unfolding evolutionary ideal, disconnected from bigger picture causing cynicism, vision not integrated with emotional reality, owning your vision yet understanding and accepting the imperfection of human drama, disillusioned with own faith"

*****************************************

Mark Andrew Holmes: "Asbolus is serious, intense, humorless, dedicated, strident, motivated, fearful, unsettling, bitter, caustic, foggy, and acerbic, and brings about ordeals and pessimism; it signifies conspiracy, mystery and oppression, the drive for accomplishment, the need for reputation and acclaim, for self-realization because of deeds done; on the one hand, impeccability in action, solidness and consistency, the ability to take compliments; on the other, reckless regard for reputation, lack of integrity, inability to take compliments."

*****************************************

Jonathan Dunn: "very bad things" "master of horror" "master of suspense" abuse / abyss"

*****************************************

Juan Antonio Revilla: "preacher, magician. the eagle and the serpent. dreams, mist, fog. clairvoyancy. clinking glass beads. penetrating, profundity. abyss. blindness. hiding, secrets. mystery, conspiracy. taboo, sin, confession. torment, punishment, anguish. bewilderment, bleeding hearts. the light that shines in the darkness. oven, igneous, ash and smoke. fusion, alchemy, density. the mysteries of blood"


_________________________________________________________________

Chiron:

Powerful healing energy, overcoming disabilities and set backs. Healing psychic wounds of rejection, restoring spirit to body.

*********************************************************
Chiron was the wounded healer, or the healer who wounds. His mode of healing works to bring up the hidden issues, overcome denial, offer penance, then go on in greatness. He was one of the immortals, with a God as a father who rejected the son. The mother disowned him because of his ugliness (half man, half horse). With no place to go, Chiron became an avid learner studying with the great ones, devouring all knowledge. Accidentally wounded at an event using ceremonial wine unceremoniously, his immortality became a liability as the healer could not heal his own wound. He persisted in life feeling pain that he, the healer, could not heal. His pain includes parental rejection, unworthiness and in today's terms, soul loss.
Chiron opted to end the eternal pain at all costs. He took a voluntary task in the underworld, coming out with the ability to ascend to the heavens as granted by Zeus (Jupiter). He represents being able to take on healing directly, clearly and intently. He symbolizes our willingness to go into the caves of consciousness and examine our nature. He grieves, then heals. This powerful healer comes before us encouraging the clearing of all things within our psyche. After this occurs the path opens for our spirits to fully fuse with our physical being.
For those people feeling rejected by parents and carrying that banner throughout life, relief is near. Should you be sensing wounds that simply will not leave no matter what is done, a solution stands near. And if feelings of displacement, alienation and disconnection prevail within yourself, the healer has arrived. With the healer, Chiron, the way clears for a stronger sense of self with spirit invested in body. This sense of self works to reestablish healthy relationships with others.

*********************************************************

Transition through awareness. Bringing shadow to the light. Standing out, not fitting any known category, doing things one's own way, and solving the problem oneself. The gift of responding to life's challenges, injuries, difficulties and moments of change through gradually focusing awareness, growth and learning.

Developing great compassion for self and others. Seeking knowledge and truth, wisdom and teachings. Relates to those dedicated to the healing fields.

* A common consense appears to be that Chiron is connected with topics like wounding, illness, healing, shamanism and holism. To my understanding Chiron seems especially connected to turning points in life through the experience of illness, pain, accidents and woundings of any kind, be it physical or psychological. During this events and crises Chiron appears to "investigate" or even "x-ray" our soul and personality to reveal its basic structure with all its deficiencies. Often this marks the beginning of a transformation process, where we cannot get rid of the fatigue but can learn to live with it and develop a higher level of consciousness. In contrary to Saturn, which normally is more connected with patient enduring of "fortune" and "fate" and with the tenacious working towards healing, Chiron tries to give us more inner freedom and understanding for our suffering with the help of a new consciousness and worldview. Chironic therapies are more directed to find the "inner key" for the healing process, which finally helps us to understand the deeper meaning and psychological roots of the painful symptoms and which also help us to rid ourselves from frustration, which often accompanies crises and illnesses. With this we gain an inner relief and relaxation, which accelerates the healing process without deny (which is often the case with Uranus) or fatalistic resignation and depression (Saturn).

* Chironic humour: tendency to sarcasm (first pointed out by the German astrologer Hans-Jürgen Walter in an article about Monty Python). Opens us for the curiosities, unusual point of views, hidden truths and new horizons and dimensions, which are often very paradox and hard to understand for our intellect and ratio by the way. Chiron appears to give us a new level of awareness above earthly and material matters. So it prepares us in some way for Uranus and the outer trans-Saturnian realm in common. Chiron gives us the first glimpse what could be beyond the Saturnian boundaries although we feel often perplexed and disturbed, sometimes also amused.

* Some problematic Chiron: resignated indifference, apathy, agony, emptiness, absence of any humour. Liz Greene's experience is that Chiron is often connected with bitterness: we feel responsible for things we cannot be responsible, similar to the endless world-weariness of Pisces.

* Chiron opens us a door or floodgate through which uncontrollable energies, emotions, invades and overwhelm us (also in synastry, Zane Stein wrote about it)

* Chironic transformations: to find a balance between physical vulnerability and the independence and superiority of the spiritual higher self.

* Confrontation with paradoxes: the "Koan"-effect. Chiron is referring to trans-Saturnian realms, which are confusing us. For example: the effect of synchronicity (as C.G. Jung described so profoundly) of different levels and times (e.g. relativity theory). Time is just another dimension, nothing absolute, like it is for Saturn. A different but also important topic is Chiros vs. Chronos.

* Two sides of the same coin: the healing arts and the arts of war. Everything, which can heal can also kill, it just depends on the dosis, so again we have a connection to the balance-theme (Libra).

* Chiron as a teacher: real and deep mediation of knowledge and experience is only possible from person to person, like a Kabbala, in an intimate and loving relationship between teacher and pupil. The chironic relationship is initiating us into something. It is located exactly in the middle between respect, authority, tradition, high esteem (Saturn) and parity, openess, equality, unconventionality (Uranus) and is often vulnerable and fragile. Real learning is to gain a new consciousness in the moment when we are touched and when something resonates in us.
Music, culture and the arts: healing is often possible only through creative doing, for example in the arts, painting therapy, music therapy ... To free oneself from reality's boundaries through unusual angles, to find access to hidden dimensions and deeper knowledge. The arts on the other hand often give us a feeling for the eternity and holistic point of view of mankind, nature and life.

* To encounter and meet people who are key person for our life, but still can be difficult and imperfect personalities.

* There is a question as to whether Chiron has a deeper connection to Libra: the balance theme and to be in the domicile there, where Saturn is only in its exaltation, Capricorn, which is the domicile of Saturn, has a square to Libra, which could reflect the problematic relationship between the mythological Chiron and its father, Chronos.

* Darrelyn Gunzburg: "The Chironic person has a hard time letting go of old beliefs and, hence, may try to reason away grief. This griefs needs the help of another to be healed."

*********************************************************

The influence of Chiron is thought to partake of both the material and psychological realities of Saturn and the inventive mental perspectives of Uranus; and it can manifest in its expression as either the inherent conflicts between these energies, or their smoother-integrated combination, and the anchoring of Uranian wisdom and understanding in reality. It challenges the individual to bridge the disparity between the Saturnian and Uranian principles, bringing inner transformation and the healing of Saturnian restrictions in the process.

Chiron is believed to signify the ability to heal others; belief in the superiority of one's own knowledge and ways; the challenging of limited established perspectives and views with original or different ones; education and teaching ability; an exaggerated sense of personal suffering and affliction; the expansion of the universal perspective beyond materialism or dualism while retaining its anchoring in matter; freedom from restrictive cultural, parental or societal ideas or codes related to its sign and house placement; the handling of the crisis of adolescence whereby individuation is sought but parental allegiances and family pressures and values remain binding; higher knowledge that can be taught outwardly to the world or inwardly as guidance to the spirit; holistic understanding; liberation through compassion; medicine; the opening of the heart to suffering; rebellious, wilful nonconformity; the search for a cure; the seeking of means to circumvent established rules and codes; self-healing from within; and the union of mind with body and intellect with instinct.

Chiron has also been described as the Rainbow Bridge....the link between the Inner and Outer Planets and it is the identification of the Chironian issues in ones life that assists with the linking between the Inner and Outer Planets and thus the integration of the Soul and Personality .
In psychological terms, Chiron is the Inner Teacher to whom we owe our allegiance. The cluster of astrological ingredients surrounding it may symbolise the tests, disciplines and ordeals which unfold under the tutelage of this Inner Teacher, whose path is Life itself, whether or not this includes following a particular spiritual tradition. Major crises of learning experiences can be reflected by any factor in the chart, but they are likely to be interpreted and processed in a manner congruent with the Chiron configuration. We also have to remember that Chiron represents the Wound/The Wounder/The Healer in our chart.
At present Chiron’s themes in the lives of individuals can be clearly observed to operate most strongly through the Mutable Cross, especially Sagittarius (9th) and Virgo (6th).
Chiron's placement in signs where it is closer to or within the orbit of Saturn stresses its more practical and personal side; while its placement in signs where it is closer to the orbit of Uranus emphasises its more mental and transpersonal side.

When within the orbit of Saturn, Chiron confers the strongest centering in the self; a sense of being unprotected by boundaries from the outside world; sensitivity to the integrated oneness of the universe; a tendency to construct artificial boundaries and defence structures such as intellectualisation, immersion in the collective, or pushing oneself outwards into society, in order to compensate for this insecurity; a tendency to project parental filters onto the transpersonal or divine realm; and sometimes an inclination, whether overtly or subtly, to make demands of others, and to feel the need to be the centre of attention.

When at the orbit of Saturn, Chiron confers an equal connection with the inner (personal) and outer (transpersonal) realms of existence, bringing confusion as to whether one is responding to the outside world or it is responding to oneself. It confers at once the capability to rapidly translate internal changes into outward realities; and a strong intuitive impressionability in response to changes in the outside world.

When outside the orbit of Saturn, Chiron brings a lack of centering in the self, bringing a relative freedom from ego, together with a feeling of having sustained a fundamental loss of some facet of the self or the awareness thereof; the need to regain what is lost; the seeking of learning and development through connection with and involved activity in the outside world; and the aptitude for concretising whatever inspirations and discoveries are made on that journey. If moving towards aphelion (its furthest distance from the Sun), Chiron outside the orbit of Saturn brings greater social involvement. If moving towards perihelion (its closest distance to the Sun), Chiron outside the orbit of Saturn focuses more on the quest for inner rediscovery.

Furthermore, whatever its distance at the moment of birth, if natal Chiron is approaching perihelion, the life direction is shown to favour the outward expression of the existing personal world, while if it is approaching aphelion it favours the intake of transpersonal or spiritual energies.

Aspects to Chiron connect the significations of the aspected planet to an intuitive higher understanding. Harmonious aspects promote the personal search for uniqueness, rewarding it, while inharonious ones manifest as an apparent rejection and inhibition of the expression of the personal vision, mostly stemming from internal conflict and the seeking to present outwardly one's originality and differences from others (in manners and areas indicated by the sign and house placement of Chiron), which frequently manifests antagonistically and irritatingly to others, who therefore show resistance. Afflictions to Chiron can also show limitations to understanding; overreliance on authority or dogma; self-doubt; or spiritual disquiet.

Transits of Chiron manifest in the breaking of rules; connections with the expectations of parents or authorities; delays and restrictions beleaguing desired life changes; interactions with mentors; focusing on issues of healing and being healed; and turning points in life.

In synastry, Chiron promotes exchanges of an educational and healing nature.
Working with the personal issues that Chiron represents in our chart provides a means of grounding ourselves in our humanity and also defining our unique contribution to this transition in which we are all participating in at this time. When the Age of Aquarius is more established perhaps it will then be seen to work through the Fixed Cross, possibly ruling Scorpio and being exalted in Leo.
Some will be more sensitive to Chiron’s energies than others. If there are one or more of the conditions below, Chiron may be considered focal in a particular chart; in this person’s life Chironian themes may be dominant and will be strongly activated when any outer planet transits part of the Chiron configuration:
- Chiron conjunct any of the Angles
- Chiron conjunct or square the Moons Nodes
- Chiron aspecting many planets, especially if the Sun, Moon and/or Asc Ruler are among them
- Chiron focal according to the shape of the chart, such as handle of a "bucket shaped chart", or as the leading planet of a "bowl shaped" chart, or in the middle of a stellium, or in hard aspect to the midpoint of an empty hemisphere or quadrant.
- Sagittarius or Virgo on the MC or ASC
- Chiron in either Sagittarius or Virgo
- A stellium of Planets in Sagittarius or Virgo
The image of Chiron’s Cave, the Chironian, has been suggested for the house in which Chiron is found. This evocative image certainly seems applicable, in that by house, Chiron focuses on those areas where we may feel pain and encounter difficulties, as well as where we seek to express our unique individuality. We may avoid "coming out into the light" of this area of life experience, hiding ourselves away in pain, like Chiron with his incurable wound; we may only be able to enter this domain of life in a supercharged or heroic manner, like Chiron emerging as the Healer and Mentor of Heroes.
Another image for Chiron’s house position is taken from Buddhism where we consider Chiron to be the Inner Teacher, its house and sign often describe important lessons which we are here to learn. These lessons represent the inner goal of the journey, rather than anything external, and involve the Middle Path or ‘right way’. This is not ‘right’ as opposed to ‘wrong’ but rather than which is ‘appropriate’ in order for us to fulfill our individual dharma - our realisation of Universal law and our part in the totality of existence.
Before the Middle Path is found and appreciated, Chiron tends to manifest in a wounded "all or nothing" way. With maturity and surrender, however, a feeling of rightness may come, often having means or overtones of connection with the dharma, with some context larger than ourselves; this is Chiron's gift to us....
In addition, planets aspecting Chiron here represent inner and outer forces with which we must contend, lest they pull us away from the dharma.
Where Chiron is in your chart is where you can’t accept a garden-variety experience of what your culture offers. You’ll have to recognize that would be wounding for you.
The house and sign position of Chiron show several things:

It is an indicator of where we have problems that tend to keep recurring, in one form or another, throughout our lives. Amateur astrologers frequently upset people by telling them something like, "Oh, this is where you're wounded and it will never go away!" It is important to remember that every indicator in the horoscope, including this one, has a positive (as well of a negative) side, and the first thing to remember is: As with any other horoscope factor, Chiron has a positive as well as a negative side. For one thing, it shows where we may teach and help others. And, yes, Chiron problems can be dealt with and solved. It shows where we can do things better for others than we can for ourselves. Chiron shows where we can have an affinity for teaching, but, ironically, that is where we can teach others how to do things better than we can do them ourselves. This can be maddening if that happens to be an area in which we want to excel.

The descriptions of Chiron placements and aspect sometimes look suspiciously like those for Saturn. Both seem to indicate problems and obstacles that need to be overcome. Why should this be, and what, if anything, is the difference between the two? Saturn shows our fears. It is the area where we tend to suffer what is called "bad luck." As a result, this is the area where our defenses are up, where we feel cautious, and where we can get stuck. Frequently, we can get to work here and make the area that was our weak point a tower of strength instead. Chiron's orbit actually crosses the orbit of Saturn, so it should come as no surprise that are some similarities in the effect it has on us. But Chiron's orbit crosses the orbit as Uranus as well. Wherever Saturn is, we have to work long and hard to solve the problems. With Chiron, the problems must also be dealt with by insight (Uranus). The catch is that if we don't follow up these insights with more work (Saturn) the problems come back.

The house position shows the particular area of our life where these things will manifest. The sign position shows how they tend to work out. What follows is a brief introduction to Chiron in the horoscope.
The Real Key to Dealing With Chiron Problems: The only way to get the benefits of the sign and house that Chiron is in, or those of the planets that Chiron aspects, is to confront and deal with your own inner wounds.

Chiron in the Signs:

Chiron in Aries: Aries is the sign of selfhood and with Chiron here the sense of self may be weakened. Melanie Reinhart in "Chiron and the Healing Journey" says that sometimes the person feels as if they don't exist and have to take their sense of identity from others. I mentioned this to a friend who had Chiron in Aries opposing her Ascendant, and she said that it was true for her. She frequently felt that way. At the time, she was on her third marriage (there was also one live-in relationship), as she couldn't bear to be alone. Having a partner (opposition to the Ascendant) was the way she dealt with that feeling of non-being.
****************************************
Chiron in Taurus: Taurus is the sign of money and resources and it shows our ability to possess things. It also shows what we instinctively value, including ourselves. This is the sign that gives us our gut level sense of self-worth. Chiron here can give us a miser's urge to hold on to every penny while denying ourselves any of life's pleasures, or a rejection of "those low, materialistic values" and, consequently, a life of poverty. And guess what? Deep down inside, both are the same. They both deny themselves pleasure and enjoyment because they don't value themselves. Of course, as always with Chiron, there is the ability to give good advise to everyone else concerning their material needs and sense of self worth. People with Chiron in Taurus have to learn how to enjoy the basic physical pleasures of life. They won't be able to do this, however, until they deal with their damaged sense of self-worth.
****************************************
Chiron in Gemini: Gemini is communications. Those with Chiron here may talk compulsively, or, on the other hand, seldom speak. Both were, most likely, never listened to as children. The only difference is one keeps trying while the other gave up. This sounds something like Chiron in the third house, and, of course, there are similarities. Remember though, that the sign position shows how something acts while the house position shows where in your life it will manifest. Let's take a look at an example. Suppose you have two horoscopes in front of you. One has Chiron in Taurus in the 3rd house. The other has Chiron in Gemini in the 2nd house. Yes, there are similarities. You could say that both will spend a lot of time talking about money, possessions, and values. Both could be quite good at giving financial advice. What's the difference? The one with the Taurus Chiron in the 3rd house will tend to talk in a slower, methodical, and more practical way because that's how Taurus influences function. They would also tend to give financial advice that is conservative and rock solid. The person with Chiron in Gemini in the 2nd house, by contrast, could just as easily talk about trivial financial matters. Or they may constantly shift from one financial topic to another. They would be more likely to give financial advice that is based on the latest up to date information (or the latest fad). It is always good to keep in mind the difference between where a planet works and how.
****************************************
Chiron in Cancer: The superficial interpretation would be that there were childhood troubles with the mother. Brilliant deduction. Hey, who didn't have some childhood problems with both parents? The real key here is how we dealt with it. The positive part of Chiron in Cancer is that you can be very nurturing. This is a very good position for therapists and caregivers of any sort. The negative side is that you find it difficult to nurture yourself or let others nurture you. Everybody has some degree of difficulty in growing up and severing that psychological umbilical cord with mama. Chiron in Cancer people tend to take a longer time than most to do the job. Once you do this, though, and learn to accept as well as give nurturing, you should be fine. So stop whining and complaining.
****************************************
Chiron in Leo: Chiron in Leo people have the ability to help others with their creativity. They could make good art teachers or art therapists. On the negative side, it could be an indicator that, as children, their creativity was either stifled or over stimulated. Some were blocked or ridiculed, ("Are you kidding? You'll never be a professional baseball player, or musician, or artist") while others were pushed by ambitious parents who liked to live through the child ("Hey, come to the Little League game and watch my kid play third base" or "My child is starring in the school play today"). Children may react by either trying extra hard to please Mommy and Daddy (even if they don't like their particular creative field) or they will shut down and stifle their own creative urge. The treatment for these Chiron problems is to get in touch with your own inner creative child again and relearn how to create for fun.
****************************************
Chiron in Virgo: Virgo in our horoscope shows where we can best deal with details, and how we deal with matters of health and general well being. Chiron placed here can produce a person who is excessively critical, obsessed with insignificant details, and cleanliness. Conversely, they may simply give up the struggle and be absolutely horrible when it comes to organizing, doing a decent job, or keeping clean. Hypochondria is also a possibility, but you could also get a person who neglects their own health while giving excellent advise about it to everyone else. Perhaps there was excessive criticism in their childhood.
****************************************
Chiron in Libra: Relationships are affected by this placement. Libra shows the place in our life where we need (and usually want) to cooperate. With Chiron placed here, one possibility is that we could shun any cooperation and isolate ourselves (shades of the opposite sign, Aries). Another possibility is a partner who manages to open up our old psychological wounds (or causes some new ones). Conversely, the person with this placement could be the one to open other people's old wounds. Lots of times, Chiron in Libra people will desperately want a partner, but once they get one, they will drive them away.
****************************************
Chiron in Scorpio: The issue here is power. Those with Chiron in Scorpio may fear their own power and try to suppress it. Conversely, they may feel powerless and try to cover this up by acting strong (even to the point of being a bully). Sex is only one way this may work out, and yes, having compulsive sex is one possibility. Another is an avoidance of sex because it's too "dangerous" (they may try to dominate me). This would be a perfect placement for a sex therapist who can help everyone else with their sexual problems but cannot help themselves. Inheritance matters may also be a sore point. Problems and upsets would tend to come with it.
****************************************
Chiron in Sagittarius: Sagittarius has to do with our ability to get the "big picture" and our ability to judge. The negative side of the sign is that it may show where we do not listen to anyone else because we already "understand" it all. For instance, if Chiron is in Sagittarius in the 2nd house (money) we may not listen to financial advice from others. We would be too busy giving our own. Always double-check any advice given to you by someone with Chiron in Sagittarius, especially if they claim to be an expert on the subject. Those with this Chiron placement who seem to be more modest and don't try to push their views on you are more likely to be the ones who give good advice.
****************************************
Chiron in Capricorn: Capricorn has to do with our ability to control and organize. Chiron here can make you over organized and compulsively controlling. Conversely, there could be rebellion against being organized at all. As always, Chiron seems to do best when aimed outward, toward others. This is a good placement for an efficiency expert, or for someone whose career involves helping others organize things.
****************************************
Chiron in Aquarius: This can be a sort of Svengali placement. You may have a genius for helping other people express their genius. Aquarius (being an air sign) rules ideas. Its specialty is new, far-out, revolutionary, shocking, and bizarre ideas, the ones that society hasn't caught up with yet. As always with Chiron, someone with this placement may be devoted totally to radical, new systems of thought, or reject them entirely. In both cases, they may not even consider other points of view. The solution lies in remembering that Chiron serves as a bridge between Saturn (everything old and conservative) and Uranus (out with the old, in with the new, and do it damn fast). Don't stick blindly with the old, but don't throw it out before you think about it first. Look for a way to blend the old with the new and you will make a start to dealing with your Chiron in Aquarius.
****************************************
Chiron in Pisces: If you have this placement, make an extra effort to get rid of your unearned guilt. And please don't wander the world looking for people to "save," at least not until you have saved yourself first. Be careful of a tendency to play the "victim" yourself (or, more likely, to BE the victim). You do have the ability, however, to help everyone else be more imaginative and creative. In fact, doing that could be an excellent antidote for dealing with the negative side of this placement.
*********************************************************
Chiron in the Houses:
Chiron in the 1st: Learning appropriate initiative or action.
With Chiron in the 1st, the wounding can occur early in life. For instance, one person with this placement was born with a condition commonly called 'brittle bones'. Because of her delicate state, the doctors advised her mother that the child should not be picked up or held, and in this way, as an infant, she was deprived of a necessary physical solace and closeness. Other placements in her chart indicate a very powerful will, and she bravely worked within the limitations of her handicap to become strong and self-sufficient.
Another example is an artist born with Chiron in Sagittarius in the 1st house conjunct the Ascendant. Severely stricken with an atrophying disease of the nervous system, he nonetheless used what strength he had to teach painting to young people. Although Chiron chose to die, he was rewarded by the Gods for his good work by being made part of a constellation in the heavens for all to see for all eternity. Similarly, although this man died while still in his early thirties, like the immortal Chiron his memory and influence live on through his paintings and the future artwork of those he taught. Both these people personify the wounded-healer/teacher nature of Chiron and serve as a source of inspiration not only for disabled individuals but also for many of the able-bodied people who have known them.
In her study of the charts of sixty-nine healers/therapists Eve Jackson found that eleven of these had Chiron in the 1st.
Chiron in the 1st: “The more I become the more I have to give” is a good way to describe Chiron in the 1st house. With Chiron in the 1st you must learn to grow and evolve by finding a path to personal growth which benefits not only the self, but also others at the same time.
Chiron in the 1st house: Chiron here can make you like a knight in shining armor, always ready to fight for the underdog. Usually, while you are doing this, you are neglecting yourself. You could also be a wise councilor (especially in health matters) but you seem to have trouble taking your own advice. A 1st house Chiron can be a gifted teacher, and, of course, you can teach others how to do something better than you can do it yourself. A neat trick to get around this: Give yourself advice as if you were someone else. Then maybe you will take it.
****************************************
Chiron in the 2nd: Learning appropriate values, or use of resources.
The ability Chiron had to apply spiritual, philosophical and ethical insights to everyday life and practical matters is highlighted with Chiron in the 2nd. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, whose pioneering work in the field of death and dying has been of practical use to both dying people and their families, was born with Chiron in Taurus in the 2nd. Her work came to the fore just as Chiron was returning to its own place in her chart (Chiron's cycle is roughly 50 years).
I have also seen Chiron in the 2nd in the chart of two people who suffered great pain through bankruptcy and financial collapse, and yet used the experience to broaden their philosophical and psychological understanding of life and themselves.
Chiron in the 2nd: This placement can represent issues with security and money. With Chiron in the 2nd, there may be a constant chase for security and/or for more than what one has. Those with Chiron have to get outside the cultural attitude - that security is a defense posture and that security is something we never get - in order to feel connected to what makes you feel secure. A walk out in nature is a good way to feel the life force around you and feel a deeper sense of security.
Chiron in the 2nd house: Chiron teaches and gives advise. The 2nd house is money, possessions, and values. You can show other people how to take care of their money better than you take care of your own. In fact, your own finances could be a mess. Sometimes, this placement can make for a miser, but the money collected never brings any pleasure or get rid of the inner fear that there will be no resources. Most likely, this is because the person has a low sense of self-worth and feels that they don't really deserve any money or possessions. In other cases, they may squander or give away what they have for the same reason. It is important to remember that if there are problems with money or possessions, that these are most likely not the real issue. The sense of self-worth is the key here.
****************************************
Chiron in the 3rd: Learning appropriate communication, thought and speech.
A woman who cured herself of cancer using special diets and visualization techniques is now writing and distributing information about combating the illness in these ways: she has Chiron in Sagittarius in the 3rd house of communication. I have observed this placement in the charts of other people who write on the subject of medicine and healing.
Their wounding may come during adolescence and the growing-up years. Some with this placement may have difficulty fitting into the early schooling situation or have learning or speech difficulties. In a few cases, those with Chiron here had brothers or sisters who were ill or afflicted in some way, and their formative years were marked by the need to be sensitive to their sibling's condition.
Chiron in the 3rd: The way you use your mind and gather information. Where do you get your information – from tv, the internet, movies, pop culture? “You are what you think, you become what you once thought.” Another motto for Chiron in the 3rd: “Think as if all your thoughts where written across the sky for all to read.”
Chiron in the 3rd house: If you don't have any brothers or sisters, you may experience this Chiron placement as a lack, a hole in your life. If you do, then there could be continual problems with at least one sibling. This is a good placement for a voice coach or speech therapist. It is likely that you will be able to teach others to speak better than you do. This placement tends to increase the chance of communication problems of one sort or another. No, it does not guarantee a speech defect. Instead, there could be problems with making oneself understood. In some cases, this could indicate that one wasn't listened to as a child. That could trigger a lifelong quest to "make others listen to me." However, no matter how much they do, there is frequently a feeling that "they are still not listening." The problem is that no matter how much they listen to you now, it doesn't get rid of the pain you felt in childhood when they didn't. Mercury/Chiron stress aspects are likely to produce the same result. Recognizing this is a first step to leaving the pain behind.
****************************************
Chiron in the 4th: Learning appropriate emotional bonds and attitude to family.
If the 4th house is taken to be the father, then he may carry the Chiron projection. The child with this placement may be exceptionally sensitive to his wounds, or view the father as a kind of teacher or mentor. One woman I know with Sun conjunct Chiron in the 4th was, as a young girl, abandoned by her father shortly after her mother died of cancer. This early rejection contributed to her receptivity to the pain, needs and feelings of other people.
It is possible that in the later years of life, those with this placement may develop a latent interest in various forms of healing.
Chiron in the 4th: With this placement, you must find your place on the planet and your connection to Earth. The environment, climate, and vegetation must work together harmoniously, and must be a sacred place for you.
Chiron in the 4th house: Well, just about everyone had some trouble or other in childhood with their parents. Chiron in the 4th house will just make it a little more noticeable. The home itself would tend to be an issue here. Perhaps one is so busy outside the home that they cannot spend much time there, or their work forces them to travel and be away frequently. The father is more likely to have been chronically ill, away from home, or emotionally unavailable. Perhaps there could be a "don't feel at home anywhere" attitude. Chiron in the 4th house might work out in other ways as well. This placement could conceivably show a person who can help everyone else with their home, while their own place is a wreck.
****************************************
Chiron in the 5th: Learning appropriate self expression and creativity.
The 5th house is associated with children and young people, and those with this placement could serve as teachers to the young. One woman with Chiron here overcame heroin addiction and now works helping adolescents with drug problems.
It has already been mentioned that Chiron's house placement may show where our earthly physical drives and desires could conflict with pulls towards something transcendent, pure and divine. I did a chart for a very religious man with Chiron in the 5th who was tortured by sexual desires for pubescent girls and boys. Through psychotherapy and prayer, he has successfully transmuted these urges into constructive channels and expresses his love of children by working as a tutor and counsellor for `problem' adolescents.
Prince Charles is born with Chiron conjunct his Sun in the 5th house of creative self-expression. Eve Jackson quotes from an interview he gave: `Ever since I was a child, I've been interested in medical matters and in the business of healing — I've always wished I could heal: In recent years he has expressed his wholehearted support and enthusiasm (5th house) for holistic medicine.
Chiron in the 5th: This placement indicates being tied to your creativity and/or children. It is important to live a life born out of the heart, to access that creativity by simply jumping into the house energy. You will find that the way culture defines fun won’t fit. Find a higher path in dealing with creativity and/or children than the cultural norm.
Chiron in the 5th house: If you need romantic advice, go to someone who has Chiron in the 5th house. Please don't ask them about their own love life, as that would embarrass them. You can also go to people who have this placement for advise on children, sports and games, gambling, and the stock market. Realistically, one does have to look at the rest of the chart because, after all, about one out of twelve people have this Chiron. And you wouldn't, of course, ask a five-year old who had it for advise. But this placement is generally good for counseling in those areas. Just remember to do as they say, but don't do as they do. Chiron in the 5th house can make for folks who are great coaches, helping players to perform better than they themselves could. It could also show people who are great with kids, but either have chronic troubles with their own, or have none of their own. This can be an indicator that you can train your children to be happier and more successful than you ever could. Watch out though. If Chiron is afflicted, you will drive your kids to succeed in the areas that you would have liked to succeed in but that they don't really like at all. The most frustrating one is the great lover who can always satisfy their partner better than they themselves could be satisfied.
****************************************
Chiron in the 6th: Learning appropriate form of service to others, and respect for the body.
To some degree, Chiron suffered by being trapped in a body he didn't like. I have seen this placement in the charts of a few people who felt uncomfortable or limited within the physical body. One was an unusually tall woman and another a rather short man. However, the kind of psychological adjustments that they had to make contributed to their sensitivity and understanding of the pain of other people. The man in question has worked extensively and productively with handicapped people of all ages.
Recalling Chiron's holistic approach to medicine, this placement shows up frequently in the charts I have seen of therapists who work with the body — those who use neo-Reichian techniques, massage, and herbal remedies, etc.
Since Chiron was so adept in the art of survival skills, it is likely that those with Chiron in the 6th have the potential to master practical crafts such as cooking, sewing or other kinds of useful handiwork.
Chiron in the 6th: This placement indicates attitudes around health, culture and diet. We are in a culture that doesn’t understand food and its relationship to health. Probably the “cultural” diet doesn’t work for you and would need to seek a new diet that would help your spiritual quest.
Chiron in the 6th house: You can always help (or teach) co-workers do the job better than you can do it. Perhaps you are a whiz at helping everyone else get healthy (the 6th house rules health) while you still smoke and eat junk food. Learn to take care of yourself every now and then. Sometimes it works out in the opposite fashion. Someone with a 6th house Chiron might demand that everyone else serve them, and they are usually never satisfied. Of course, obviously, this causes problems too. And oh yes, let us not forget the tendency toward eating disorders. This can also manifest as strange likes and dislikes in the food department.
****************************************
Chiron in the 7th: Learning appropriate relationships.
With this placement, it is possible that the nature of Chiron could be projected onto the partner, who might be seen as obviously wounded, either physically or psychologically. Or it may be that the partner is viewed as a kind of teacher or wise mentor. Conversely, those with Chiron here could act as a teacher to another person.
Chiron's feeling of rejection can come through a relationship if this planet is placed in the 7th. The hurt of a painful separation from a loved one may bring up deep wounds which soften, sensitize and transform even the most hard-hearted people. Or they could experience frustration at the discrepancy between an idealized notion of love and the reality before them.
Chiron in the 7th: This placement indicates the type of relationships that culture says should work for you – that is your wound. Your relationships need to have a higher dimension, have a quest. The relationship would be a vehicle of consciousness growth.
Chiron in the 7th house: This one might spend all of their time taking care of a partner who has some debility. It is also someone who gives great advise on marriage, while their own marriage is on the rocks (or they might not even be married). This can work for business partnerships as well. You can take great care of a partner and teach them how to do the business better than you ever could. Watch out that they don't dump you as soon as they learn all that they can from you.
****************************************
Chiron in the 8th: Learning appropriate attitude to death and sexuality.
Those with Chiron in the 8th may be sensitive to sexual rejection, or feel inadequate or confused about their sexual identity. Strong libidinal drives could conflict with their more spiritual or religious inclinations.
It is likely that they are extremely receptive to any painful undercurrents in the atmosphere, and possess latent healing abilities which they should be encouraged to develop. Some may be able to teach others about the deeper mysteries or subtle dimensions of life. The 8th house is associated with death, and those with this placement may want to study the example of the famous centaur who chose death with peace and equanimity.
Chiron in the 8th: This placement indicates the type of intimacy that culture offers would not be satisfying. You need a deeper type of intimacy, sacred sexuality, tantric sexuality.
Chiron in the 8th house: What a great sex therapist you can be. A more likely scenario is that you have the ability to bring out the sexual best in a romantic partner, while giving yourself the short end of the stick (no pun intended). But the 8th house rules more than sex. You could also get stuck with taking care of partnership resources because "you're so good at it," or, conversely, keep getting partners who want to "take care" of it and do you out of your fair share. Perhaps you become too dependent on money from others for support, or too much of what you earn goes to support others. You might tend to accept other people's values (your family, group or society) too readily. One other thing. The myth of Chiron can actually come alive with this placement. You could have a talent for healing or rehabilitating others, but not yourself.

Chiron in the 9th: Learning appropriate attitude to possibilities.
The 9th house will highlight Chiron's ability to take intuitive and innovative insights and apply these in a practical manner. They are likely to make very capable teachers. The highly respected and deep-thinking astrologer John Addey was born with Chiron in Aries in the 9th house conjunct the Midheaven. Crippled with an incurable form of rheumatism, he worked as a teacher for disabled people. Furthermore, he once remarked that he would have probably been all too happy to spend his days between golf and horses had it not been for his illness which forced him to stay still for a moment and reflect on life. His wound impelled him to turn his attention to the 9th house matters of philosophy and astrology. With the clarity and finesse of the mythological Chiron, Addey related the abstract and theoretical concept of harmonics in a practical way to chart analysis.
Chiron in the 9th: This placement indicates the need to go beyond the education, philosophy and spiritual quest of your culture. Similar to Chiron in the 12th, it is important for you to not accept the political and religious views you grew up with and instead find your own path: your path and quest involves the seeking of something else, something higher.
Chiron in the 9th house: Perfect for a travel agent who sends everyone else on fantastic trips while they are stuck in the office doing the booking, or a publisher or writing teacher who gets everyone else's books before the public, while secretly longing to write and publish their own. Parents with this placement of Chiron frequently tend to push their children to pursue the higher education that they themselves never had a chance to get. Negatively, this could mean forcing them into studying what the parents wished that they had studied, and not what the kids really want. There could also be jealousy here (Saturn) and the parents could actually take steps to deprive their children of higher education.
The 9th house also rules religion. Sometimes this leads to thinking that the fanatic pursuit of some religious doctrine will cure all of one's inner wounds. This could also manifest as obsessive travel or study.
****************************************
Chiron in the 10th: Learning appropriate vocation and participation in society.
Any planet in the 10th will be linked to career and profession. Of the sixty-nine charts of healers /therapists EveJackson studied, fifteen of these had Chiron in the 10th. In short, the person's function in the world could well reflect the healing qualities of the Greek Chiron. Nevertheless, Chiron was unsure where he fitted in — he was half divine and half animal, and those with Chiron here may be uncertain of how they are to fit into society, of the role they are meant to play in the collective scheme of things.
A 10th house Chiron may also describe a feeling of rejection by the mother, and the consequent psychological pain and growth that stems from such an experience. It is also possible that the mother might have carried the Chiron projection — she was seen as wounded or afflicted in some way or conversely mirrored Chiron's healing and philosophical nature.
Chiron in the 10th: The Tenth House is the home of the soul's desire. It's the place where we align purpose and action. Put simply, it's what we most want to be when we grow up, because being "that" will answer a calling deep within. This longing could include the need for material success, but it could just as easily stir a desire for spiritual accomplishment. At times, you might find yourself at a career crossroads. People with Chiron in the 10th often inspire other people. When you push the limits for yourself, it’s possible that you are also setting the bar a little higher for others.
Chiron in the 10th house: Career and public prestige are the battlegrounds with this placement of Chiron. Yes, this is a great placement for running an organization in the medical or healing field, but frequently, no matter what the career, someone with a 10th house Chiron will feel that they are taking care of everybody and everything else except themselves. As usual, there will frequently be an uncanny ability to help everyone else succeed better than they could ever have done themselves. It could also work out the other way. There may be a total rejection of any sort of ambition or responsibility, most likely due to fear of failure. Perhaps the parents pushed you too hard to succeed and really got on your case when you slipped up (or even when you didn't). The other side of the coin is that some parents don't want their children to succeed and always put them down. You can get either reaction to an upbringing of that nature: a compulsive need to achieve or a rejection of any success or responsibility.
****************************************
Chiron in the 11th: Learning appropriate ideals and friendships.
Those with Chiron in the 11th could be involved in the running of various kinds of therapy or healing centres. They might be sensitive to the pain in society and perhaps concerned with helping or teaching those who are oppressed or downtrodden. There may be a nagging fear of rejection or slight within the context of groups and friendships or some hurt incurred through such involvements. Ultimately this pain could act as a catalyst for further self-knowledge and self understanding.
Friends may carry any of the connotations of Chiron — either people involved in the healing /teaching profession or those who are obviously psychologically or physically vulnerable. Those with Chiron here may serve as mentors to their friends, or look to their associates for guidance, direction and support.
Chiron in in the 11th: This placement indicates a deep connection to the psyche and the collective unconscious...but also indicates there are usually blocks to overcome. Here the wound is usually a sense of disconnection, distance, isolation and alienation from people, from the world, and even sometimes from the Universe. This feeling of being unable to fit in may make us reject the tenets of groups or society, but the longing to belong remains.
Often, due to the sensitivity to the collective, people with Chiron in the 11th will be progressive, forward thinking. They may be rejected by groups and society simply because they are ahead of their time. There are shades of 'discovery' here.
When you feel disconnected, try listing the special ways in which you are connected to life, to others, to the world and to the Universe. List the benefits and gifts of feeling alone, isolated and alienated. Also list the ways in which your 'differentness' is a gift and blessing to you and others. Write your thoughts and dreams in a journal.
Chiron in the 11th house: The problem areas are friends, hopes, and wishes. On the one hand, there could be difficulty having or holding on to friends, or a fear of crowds or groups. On the other hand, one may compulsively seek out friends (or join groups, especially groups that want to change society) in order to compensate for inner fears of loneliness. You might get more than your share of "friends" who take advantage and drain you. More often, you give to friends whether they want it or not because this gives you a feeling of control (Saturn). But you could be the drainer here, always asking things of friends in order to compensate for a psychological neediness that never seems to be filled.
****************************************
Chiron in the 12th: Learning appropriate renunciation.
In Eve Jackson's study, Chiron in the 12th is the third most frequent position of Chiron in the charts of healers /therapists. Of these, two distinct groups were noted: those who practised "spiritual healing", such as the laying on of hands or even absent/remote healing, and those who worked primarily with dreams or guided imaging. For those with Chiron in the 12th, unhealed wounds may be buried deep in the unconscious or stem from a difficult pre-natal experience. The psychologist Arthur Janov, author of The Primal Scream, was born with Chiron in the 12th in Aries; he feels that the way to reconnect to one's true power and vitality (Aries) is through releasing these deeply entrenched early traumas.
Some people with 12th house Chirons have had connections with healing or teaching in previous lives. In any case, those with this placement have the potential to tap a rich source of practical wisdom stored in the recesses of their own psyches.
Chiron in the 12th: This placement indicates that your cultural religion probably doesn’t work for you. You have to seek outside, and that seeking is your destiny.
Chiron in the 12th house: As always, Chiron shows where we can do more for others than ourselves. A 12th house Chiron may compulsively try to take care of the poor the sick, and the unfortunate while neglecting their own needs and those of their own family. Conversely, there may be malingering and the person with this placement may themselves always seem in "need" because of one (frequently self-caused) "problem" after another. This placement tends to make a person feel tired and fatigued. If you have this one, be sure to get plenty of rest.

*********************************************************

Chiron in Aspect:

Chiron and the Sun: The effects can be similar to Chiron in Leo (which is ruled by the Sun). Chiron aspects to the Sun can make you feel "special." There is frequently a strong sense of being here for some grand "purpose" or other. There is an ability to help others with their creativity and self-expression, but if you have this aspect, make sure not to neglect your own. Negatively, there could be an increased sensitivity to criticism of any sort. Learn to take it without feeling like you are being attacked or that they all hate you.
****************************************
Chiron and the Moon: When you were a kid, did you have the feeling that your mother wanted to be doing something else instead of take care of you? One of the negative effects of Chiron in aspect to the Sun (mentioned above) is difficulty in accepting criticism. By contrast, with Chiron aspecting the Moon, you can think you are being criticized you even when you are not, and then you react to this imaginary "attack." Of course there will also be the tendency to "mother" others and help them with their emotional expression. Be careful not to smother while you mother.
****************************************
Chiron and Mercury: The positive side of this combination is increased ability to communicate and teach, to stir the minds of others. These aspects can really be inspirational. But, you could feel that you have just communicated brilliantly when you actually didn't. Conversely, you might feel that your communication bombed when it was really right on target.
****************************************
Chiron and Venus: Please try to get some pleasure for yourself in a relationship instead of always helping your partner to open up. Chiron/Venus aspects can make for a great art teacher who (as always with Chiron) can teach their students to create art better than they themselves could ever do. These aspects are also good for giving great financial advice (Venus rules Taurus, the money sign) while one's own handling of money matters is a disaster area.
****************************************
Chiron and Mars: The difficulties here involve aggression and assertiveness. People with these aspects could be ultra aggressive as a cover for feelings of inadequacy, or, conversely, behave passively to conceal inner rage and hostility. To resolve Chiron/Mars problems, the trick is to find a balance point between the two (shades of Libra, the sign opposite Mars-ruled Aries). This is a perfect position for a coach who can teach (Chiron) others how to perform athletic feats that they themselves could never do.
****************************************
Chiron and Jupiter: The stressful aspects (square, opposition, and sometimes the conjunction) can produce a person who has all the answers. Just ask them. The problem is that the crusading tendencies are usually a cover to keep from facing up to one's own inner problems. Conversely, there may be a total lack of faith or optimism. The cure in both cases is to confront the inner wounds that are really underlying the outward behavior. A big danger with this placement is that one can become a guru groupie or a seer sucker. People with Chiron/Jupiter aspects can also have the ability to inspire others more than they can inspire themselves. Indeed, they can fill others with optimism even when they themselves feel pessimistic and depressed.
****************************************
Chiron and Saturn: Saturn organizes and controls. The person with a Chiron/Saturn aspect will tend to be compulsively controlling and over organized. The reason could a fear of letting go, or perhaps they are still trying to please an over restrictive parent. The other side of the coin would be someone who is highly disorganized and sloppy, or seems too fearful or depressed to make a move. A high colonic would be helpful here to remove that lead pipe (Saturn) from their rear end.
****************************************
Chiron and Uranus: This type of person is the one who can say things like: "Be for peace, or I'll kill you!" The tendency is to love people in the abstract, but not in the flesh. They love the ideal of brotherhood and sisterhood of all people. It's relating to actual, live, real human beings that turns them off. This is because relating requires them to show some feelings, a concept they find alien and icky. But feelings and emotions are exactly what have to be worked on here. The Chiron/Uranus individual may produce brilliant works of genius while all the time feeling stupid. More often, they will come up with off the wall ideas that they claim are works of genius. Chiron/Uranus people may be completely "Uranian," constantly mouthing shocking opinions, or they may go to the opposite extreme and be against anything that is new in any way. If they manage to keep themselves grounded, in contact with reality and their own emotions, their true genius can flow freely.
****************************************
Chiron and Neptune: Neptune rules dreams, imagination, and intuition. On the negative side, it shows where we try to avoid any reality that we find unpleasant. Sometimes this can manifest as a rejection of anything "mystical." Or the other extreme could come out and produce someone who can't make a move without consulting a psychic. The intuitive powers may feel blocked. Conversely, they may be active with a vengeance and constantly contradict the "logical" conclusions that are reached. Chiron/Neptune could make for someone who constantly "malingers" and avoids all unpleasant situations (anything requiring work or contact with reality). The alternative is a person who is hard working, "responsible" in a very conventional way, and suppresses their imaginative-creative side. Then, all of a sudden, they become an alcoholic, drug addict, or have a mental breakdown of some sort. They could also fall in "love" with someone who has these problems (or who is a con artist) and get completely drained, even ruined. A perfect example of this comes from the world of literature: the professor that Marlene Dietrich's character ruined in "The Blue Angel." The way to deal with Chiron/Neptune is to strike a balance, to let the Neptune genie out of the bottle in a constructive way, to give vent to the sympathy and imagination without giving up reality. If you've been repressing the Neptune, take a class in art (or better yet, dance). Do some volunteer charity work. If you happen to be the malingering type of Chiron/Neptune, your cover is blown. The malingering is not the real problem. It is the smokescreen you put up to hide your real problems. Wake up and deal with them.
****************************************
Chiron and Pluto: Pluto is like a super version of Mars. One of the main differences is that Mars is usually open and overt, while Pluto rules hidden, subconscious forces that build unseen and then explode with volcanic power. On the negative side, Chiron/Pluto aspects can (like Chiron/Mars) cause one to be an aggressive bully. But Mars will just push others around; Pluto wants to totally dominate. A highly negative example is Francisco Assis, the Brazilian serial killer, who has the opposition of Chiron to his 5th house placement of Pluto. The 5th house rules romance. Let me remind you again that one aspect by itself does not make for a mass murderer. There are very few serial killers in the world, but because Chiron and Pluto both move slowly, almost everyone born in that same year had this aspect, and that could mean over a million people. The reason Chiron/Pluto can cause one to act in a domineering manner is to compensate for subconscious fear of being weak and helpless. The cure for this Chiron Pluto type is to confront their own inner feelings of weakness. Conversely, the Pluto power could be suppressed. The result could be someone who is always getting picked on by bullies, or coming out on the wrong end of power struggles. They are afraid of letting their power out. Most likely, when they were children, any release of that tremendous Pluto force caused their parents to come down hard, and Pluto was pushed underground. The cure here is to recognize and take responsibility for one's own power, and to find ways to let it out constructively. A more positive example of Pluto/Chiron is Jonas Salk, the inventor of the first effective anti-polio vaccine. He did not have an aspect between Chiron and Pluto, but he had the Sun opposite the Chiron/Pluto midpoint. In his case, the positive, healing side of both Chiron and Pluto came out dramatically. Another positive example is George Bernard Shaw, who had Chiron in the 9th house (philosophy, publishing, "higher" mental functions) making a square aspect with Pluto in the 12th house (restrictions, "hidden" things). His Chiron was also opposite the Sun and Venus, so the power came out mostly in intellectual matters.
****************************************
Chiron and the Ascendant: Since the Ascendant is always exactly opposite the Descendant, an aspect to one is also an aspect to the other. This means if you have a Chiron/Ascendant aspect, you must have a Chiron/Descendant aspect as well. As a result, this combination affects the way we start things, our initial approach to the world, and the way people see us (Ascendant). But it also affects the way we relate to others (Descendant). People with Chiron/Ascendant aspects can be great teachers or healers, but there is a wild side that can come to the surface. It becomes easier to "wound" others or be wounded by them. A positive way to use this would be to help others work through their problems. Rona Barrett, the gossip columnist, is a perfect example. She has Chiron in her 10th house (career) in the sign of Gemini (communications) and it is square her Ascendant. She has made a career out of making the wounds of others (Descendant) public (10th house).
****************************************
Chiron and the Mid-Heaven: The Mid-Heaven and the Nadir are exactly opposite each other and have to be considered as one axis. Something aspecting one of them will also aspect the other. A Chiron aspect here could affect the career and public image (Mid-Heaven) and the domestic environment as well (Nadir). Relations with both parents are also affected. If there is a conjunction with the MC, the effect is similar to Chiron in the 10th house, and the career could be in a Chiron related field, such as education. If Chiron makes the conjunction from the 9th house side, then any potential Chiron problems would tend to be suppressed and driven into the subconscious. The result could be success in a career that one thinks they like, but is not really satisfying. A similar situation could occur with the opposition to the Mid-Heaven from the 3rd house. In this case, there could be something about the domestic environment that makes one uneasy. The cure for both of these situations is a constant effort to bring the hidden problems to the surface.
Any Chiron aspect to the Mid-Heaven/Nadir axis will affect relations with both parents, but hey, what else is new? Who doesn't have a bone to pick with their parents at one time or another? The real lesson here is to leave the past in the past and get on with our lives.

1170 Siva (Vedic):

Siva is the Lord of the dance, the all knowing, originally called Rudra, he is identified with Agni, the God of fire. He is male and female and at the same time God of creation, destruction, and maintenance.

Helps in Kundalini Yoga. Assists in awareness of rebirths.

_________________________________________________________________

4227 Kaali (Vedic):

Goddess representing Kundalini; Power and Energy. Helps Kundalini Currents.

Mother Gauri, the present wife of lord Shiva. Lord Shiva in his destructive form is known as Mahakala, and the Divine Mother Gauri is Kali or Mahakali. She is Goddess of transformation via death, which is essential for the renewal and spiritual growth. Through Invoking Kali (Kundalini) you can remove fear of death, the basic insecurity of the first shakra, and other false attachments in order to love unconditionally. She is the first Mahavidya and also known as Adya (the first-born), one of the names used for Kundalini Shakti.

****************************************

Kali (pronounced kah'lee), the Hindu triple Goddess of creation, preservation, and destruction is the animating force of Shiva, the destroyer (lord of the Dance). She is the insatiable hunger of time that births then devours. Skulls, cemeteries, and blood are all associated with her worship. Kali's energy is uncontrollable. After killing two demons, she got drunk on their blood and began dancing on their dead flesh. She danced herself into a frenzy until she realized she almost danced Shiva to death.
The Lessons of this Goddess:
Kali has begun her dance in your life to tell you it is time to face your fears. All that is lurking ominously, eithre buried deep in your inner darkness or close by, needs to be stared in the eye and brought into the ight of consciousness. Are you fears serving you by warning you about dangerous places, things, or people? Or do your fears prevent you from dancing your dance, living your life, creating with Creation? The Goddess comes to tell you that your dance is needed as part of the whole Dance of Creation. Wholeness is nurtured when you reclaim the pieces of yourself that you've given over to fear. Most fears are formless. By naming and witnessing the fear, you gain power. Wholeness is created when you learn to acknowledge your fears and walk through them.

****************************************

Kali is portrayed mostly in two forms: the popular four-armed form and the ten-armed Mahakali form. In both of her forms, she is described as being black in color but is most often depicted as blue in popular Indian art. Her eyes are described as red with intoxication and in absolute rage, her hair is shown disheveled, small fangs sometimes protrude out of her mouth and her tongue is lolling. She is often shown naked or just wearing a skirt made of human arms and a garland of human heads. She is also accompanied by serpents and a jackal while standing on a seemingly dead Shiva, usually right foot forward to symbolize the more popular Dakshinamarga or right-handed path, as opposed to the more infamous and transgressive Vamamarga or left-handed path.
In the ten armed form of Mahakali she is depicted as shining like a blue stone. She has ten faces and ten feet and three eyes. She has ornaments decked on all her limbs. There is no association with Siva.
The Kalika Purana describes Kali as possessing a soothing dark complexion, as perfectly beautiful, riding a lion, four armed, holding a sword and blue lotuses, her hair unrestrained, body firm and youthful.
In spite of her seemingly terrible form, Kali is often considered the kindest and most loving of all the Hindu Goddesses, as she is regarded by her devotees as the Mother of the whole Universe. And, because of her terrible form she is also often seen as a great protector. When the Bengali saint Ramakrishna once asked a devotee why one would prefer to worship Mother over him, this devotee rhetorically replied, “Maharaj, when they are in trouble your devotees come running to you. But, where do you run when you are in trouble?”
According to Ramakrishna darkness is Ultimate Mother or Kali:
My Mother is the principle of consciousness. She is Akhanda Satchidananda; indivisible Reality, Awareness, and Bliss. The night sky between the stars is perfectly black. The waters of the ocean depths are the same; The infinite is always mysteriously dark. This inebriating darkness is my beloved Kali.
-Sri Ramakrishna
Throughout her history artists the world over have portrayed Kali in myriad poses and settings, some of which stray far from the popular description, and are sometimes even graphically sexual in nature. Given the popularity of this Goddess, artists everywhere will continue to explore the magnificence of Kali’s iconography.
Classic depictions of Kali share several features, as follows:
Kali's most common four armed iconographic image shows each hand carrying variously a sword, a trishul (trident), a severed head and a bowl or skull-cup (kapala) catching the blood of the severed head.
Two of these hands (usually the left) are holding a sword and a severed head. The Sword signifies Divine Knowledge and the Human Head signifies human Ego which must be slain by Divine Knowledge in order to attain Moksha. The other two hands (usually the right) are in the abhaya and varada mudras or blessings, which means her initiated devotees (or anyone worshiping her with a true heart) will be saved as she will guide them here and in the hereafter.
She has a garland consisting of human heads, variously enumerated at 108 (an auspicious number in Hinduism and the number of countable beads on a Japa Mala or rosary for repetition of Mantras) or 51, which represents Varnamala or the Garland of letters of the Sanskrit alphabet, Devanagari. Hindus believe Sanskrit is a language of dynamism, and each of these letters represents a form of energy, or a form of Kali. Therefore she is generally seen as the mother of language, and all mantras.
She is often depicted naked which symbolizes her being beyond the covering of Maya since she is pure (nirguna) being-consciousness-bliss and far above prakriti. She is shown as very dark as she is brahman in its supreme unmanifest state. She has no permanent qualities — she will continue to exist even when the universe ends. It is therefore believed that the concepts of color, light, good, bad do not apply to her — she is the pure, un-manifested energy, the Ad-shakti.
In some images she is shown standing on the prone, inert or dead body of Shiva. There is a mythological story for the reason behind her standing on what appears to be Shiva’s corpse, which translates as follows:
Once Kali had destroyed all the demons in battle, she began a terrific dance out of the sheer joy of victory. All the worlds or lokas began to tremble and sway under the impact of her dance. So, at the request of all the Gods, Shiva himself asked her to desist from this behavior. However, she was too intoxicated to listen. Hence, Shiva lay like a corpse among the slain demons in order to absorb the shock of the dance into himself. When Kali eventually stepped upon her husband she realized her mistake and bit her tongue in shame.
The Tantric interpretation of Kali standing on top of her husband is as follows:
The Shiv tattava (Divine Consciousness as Shiva) is inactive, while the Shakti tattava (Divine Energy as Kali) is active. Shiva, or Mahadeva represents Brahman, the Absolute pure consciousness which is beyond all names, forms and activities. Kali, on the other hand, represents the potential (and manifested) energy responsible for all names, forms and activities. She is his Shakti, or creative power, and is seen as the substance behind the entire content of all consciousness. She can never exist apart from Shiva or act independently of him, i.e., Shakti, all the matter/energy of the universe, is not distinct from Shiva, or Brahman, but is rather the dynamic power of Brahman.
While this is an advanced concept in monistic Shaktism, it also agrees with the Nondual Trika philosophy of Kashmir, popularly known as Kashmir Shaivism and associated most famously with Abhinavagupta. There is a colloquial saying that "Shiva without Shakti is Shava" which means that without the power of action (Shakti) that is Mahakali (represented as the short "i" in Devanagari) Shiva (or consciousness itself) is inactive; Shava means corpse in Sanskrit and the play on words is that all Sanskrit consonants are assumed to be followed by a short letter "a" unless otherwise noted. The short letter "i" represents the female power or Shakti that activates Creation. This is often the explanation for why She is standing on Shiva, who is either Her husband and complement in Shaktism or the Supreme Godhead in Shaivism.
To properly understand this complex Tantric symbolism it is important to remember that the meaning behind Shiva and Kali does not stray from the non-dualistic parlance of Shankara or the Upanisads. According to both the Mahanirvana and Kularnava Tantras, there are two distinct ways of perceiving the same absolute reality. The first is a transcendental plane which is often described as static, yet infinite. It is here that there is no matter, there is no universe and only consciousness exists. This form of reality is known as Shiva, the absolute Sat-Chit-Ananada - existence, knowledge and bliss. The second is an active plane, an immanent plane, the plane of matter, of Maya, i.e., where the illusion of space-time and the appearance of an actual universe does exist. This form of reality is known as Kali or Shakti, and (in its entirety) is still specified as the same Absolute Sat-Chit-Ananada. It is here in this second plane that the universe (as we commonly know it) is experienced and is described by the Tantric seer as the play of Shakti, or God as Mother Kali.
From a Tantric perspective, when one meditates on reality at rest, as absolute pure consciousness (without the activities of creation, preservation or dissolution) one refers to this as Shiva or Brahman. When one meditates on reality as dynamic and creative, as the Absolute content of pure consciousness (with all the activities of creation, preservation or dissolution) one refers to it as Kali or Shakti. However, in either case the yogini or yogi is interested in one and the same reality — the only difference being in name and fluctuating aspects of appearance. It is this which is generally accepted as the meaning of Kali standing on the chest of Shiva.
Although there is often controversy surrounding the images of divine copulation, the general consensus is benign and free from any carnal impurities in its substance. In Tantra the human body is a symbol for the microcosm of the universe; therefore sexual process is responsible for the creation of the world. Although theoretically Shiva and Kali (or Shakti) are inseparable, like fire and its power to burn, in the case of creation they are often seen as having separate roles. With Shiva as male and Kali as female it is only by their union that creation may transpire. This reminds us of the prakrti and purusa doctrine of Samkhya wherein prakāśa- vimarśa has no practical value, just as without prakrti, purusa is quite inactive. This (once again) stresses the interdependencies of Shiva and Shakti and the vitality of their union.
Gopi Krishna proposed that Kali standing on the dead Shiva or Shava (Sanskrit for dead body) symbolised the helplessness of a person undergoing the changing process ( psychologically and physiologically) in the body conducted by the Kundalini Shakti.

Kali is depicted in the Mahakali form as having ten heads, ten arms, and ten legs. Each of her ten hands is carrying a various implement which vary in different accounts, but each of these represent the power of one of the Devas or Hindu Gods and are often the identifying weapon or ritual item of a given Deva. The implication is that Mahakali subsumes and is responsible for the powers that these deities possess and this is in line with the interpretation that Mahakali is identical with Brahman. While not displaying ten heads, an "ekamukhi" or one headed image may be displayed with ten arms, signifying the same concept: the powers of the various Gods come only through Her grace.

In the later traditions, Kali has become inextricably linked with Shiva. The unleashed form of Kali often becomes wild and uncontrollable, and only Shiva is able to tame her. This is both because she is often a transformed version of one of his consorts and because he is able to match her wildness.
The ancient text of Kali Kautuvam describes her competition with Shiva in dance, from which the sacred 108 Karanas appeared. Shiva won the competition by acting the urdva tandava, one of the Karanas, by raising his feet to his head. Other texts describe Shiva appearing as a crying infant and appealing to her maternal instincts. While Shiva is said to be able to tame her, the iconography often presents her dancing on his fallen body, and there are accounts of the two of them dancing together, and driving each other to such wildness that the world comes close to unravelling.
Shiva's involvement with Tantra and Kali's dark nature have led to her becoming an important Tantric figure. To the Tantric worshippers, it was essential to face her Curse, the terror of death, as willingly as they accepted Blessings from her beautiful, nurturing, maternal aspect. For them, wisdom meant learning that no coin has only one side: as death cannot exist without life, so life cannot exist without death. Kali's role sometimes grew beyond that of a chaos — which could be confronted — to that of one who could bring wisdom, and she is given great metaphysical significance by some Tantric texts. The Nirvāna-tantra clearly presents her uncontrolled nature as the Ultimate Reality, claiming that the trimurti of Brahma, Visnu and Rudra arise and disappear from her like bubbles from the sea. Although this is an extreme case, the Yogini-tantra, Kamakhya-tantra and the Niruttara-tantra declare her the svarupa (own-being) of the Mahadevi (the great Goddess, who is in this case seen as the combination of all devis).
The final stage of development is the worshipping of Kali as the Great Mother, devoid of her usual violence. This practice is a break from the more traditional depictions. The pioneers of this tradition are the 18th century Shakta poets such as Ramprasad Sen, who show an awareness of Kali's ambivalent nature. Ramakrishna, the 19th century Bengali saint, was also a great devotee of Kali; the western popularity of whom may have contributed to the more modern, equivocal interpretations of this Goddess. Rachel McDermott's work, however, suggests that for the common, modern worshipper, Kali is not seen as fearful, and only those educated in old traditions see her as having a wrathful component. Some credit to the development of Devi must also be given to Samkhya. Commonly referred to as the Devi of delusion, Mahamaya, acting in the confines of (but not being bound by) the nature of the three gunas, takes three forms: Maha-Kali, Maha-Lakshmi and Maha-Saraswati, being her tamas-ika, rajas-ika and sattva-ika forms. In this sense, Kali is simply part of a larger whole.
**************************************
Kali is often regarded as a dark, black and fierce Goddess of death, and as the destructive "Power of Eternal Time". However, to her worshippers in both Hinduism and Tantra she is much more, and represents a multi-faceted Great Goddess responsible for all of life from conception to death. Her worship, therefore, consists of fertility festivals as well as sacrifices (animal and human); and her initiations expand one's consciousness by many means, including fear, ritual sexuality and intoxication with a variety of drugs.
A very apt and poetic description of the Great Mother Kali has been given by Pirsig, who wrote the following:
"Kali, the Divine Mother, is the symbol for the infinite diversity of experience.
"Kali represents the entire physical plane. She is the drama, tragedy, humor, and sorrow of life. She is the brother, father, sister, mother, lover, and friend. She is the fiend, monster, beast, and brute. She is the sun and the ocean. She is the grass and the dew. She is our sense of accomplishment and our sense of doing worthwhile. Our thrill of discovery is a pendant on her bracelet. Our gratification is a spot of color on her cheek. Our sense of importance is the bell on her ankle. The full and seductive, terrible and wonderful earth mother always has something to offer." Pirsig. Zen in the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. p. 329
Although Kali is worshipped throughout India and Nepal, and even in Indonesia, she is most popular in Bengal, where one also finds Kalighat (S: kaligata), her most famous temple just outside Calcutta. (Considering that Calcutta is simply an Anglicized form of kaligata, the city received its very name from the Goddess.)
It has been said that Kali is "the divine Shakti representing both the creative and destructive aspects of nature", and as such she is a Goddess who both gives life and brings death. Clothed only with the veil of space, her blue-black nakedness symbolizes the eternal night of non-existence, a night that is free of any illusion and distinction. Kali as such is pure and primary reality, the enfolded order, formless void yet full of potential.
In time Kali has become such a dominating figure in the Indian pantheon, that many other Goddesses have been assimilated into her, and she herself has been ascribed an ever growing number of aspects and manifestations. Many of these, for example the so-called "One Hundred Names of Kali", are names that begin with the letter 'K'. In their translations, these names define the Goddess much more directly and intimately than any intellectual summary can do.
The One Hundred Names occur in the adyakali svarupa stotra, a hymn to Kali that is part of the Mahanirvana Tantra. What emerges when reading this hymn, is an exposition of Kali in a variety of strikingly different aspects.
We discover:
Kali as revealer, benefactress and embodiment of the Kula school of Tantrics, their teachings, rituals and lifestyle
Kali as merciful helper and destructress of evil, fear, pride and sin
Kali as young, beautiful, swan-like, sensual and attractive woman
Kali as embodiment of desire and liberator from desire, as a free woman who enjoys and lets herself be enjoyed
Kali who enjoys and partakes of drugs and aphrodisiacs (camphor, musk, wine)
Kali who enjoys and encourages the worship of young women (with wine, drugs and sexual play)
Kali as Queen of the holy city Varanasi (Benares) and as lover, beloved and devourer of the God Shiva (the Lord of that city)
Kali as shape-shifter (assuming any form at will)
Kali of terrific countenance, wearing a garland of bones, using a human skull as cup
Kali as dark night, mother and destroyer of time, as the fire of the worlds dissolution

2847 Parvati (Vedic):

Power, Energy, and Enlightenment. The female energy is typically referred to the kinetic energy and resides in the root chakra at the tip of the spinal chord.

Goddess of Love and Devotion
The Goddess Parvati is the 'lover of life' who brings her power and prowess into the world as she infuses it with her magic.
The Story of Parvati:
Even as a young girl Parvati was in love with Shiva. But Shiva, the God of War, was grieving the death of the woman he loved and had turned his back on the world and all its pleasures. He now lived in a dark cave and spent his days in meditation.
Determined to win his affection, Parvati would visit his cave each day to bring him fruit and to sweep the floor of the cave and decorate it with flowers. But Shiva spurned her efforts.
Parvati remained determined. She decided to go into the mountains and become an ascetic herself, thinking perhaps this would win his love.
Parvati wanted a child. But Shiva didn't want to be bothered with offspring so he spitefully gave her a scrap of cloth and told her to make a doll and cuddle it instead.
Hurt by his remark she withdrew to a cave to meditate and get control of her emotions. Grasping the cloth to her breast, Parvati’s tears dropped on it and the cloth grew into the form of Ganesha, her son. She assigned her newly created son to guard over her cave and to keep out all strangers.
In the meantime Shiva began to regret his impulsive act and came to find Parvati and apologize. Ganesha didn’t recognize him and blocked his way. Shiva flew into a rage and beheaded Ganesha.

Parvati represents the part of ourselves that creatively brings forth nourishment even in the midst of what seems to be rejection and disapproval. She is a wonderful affirmation that there are no limits to what a woman can do when she uses her spiritual energy in the pursuit of any goal she chooses.
When we embrace love, Parvati is there to bless us.

Goddess Parvati
Parvati is a well known Goddess in the Hindu mythology. Goddess Parvati is the divine consort of Lord Shiva, the trinity God. Parvati is also considered as a representation of Shakti or Durga, but the gentle aspect of that Goddess not the fierce one. Maa Parvati is beautifully presented in the Hindu Literature as being beautiful, as a mediator in the conflicts of heaven, as a daughter of the Great Himalayan Mountains and as the divine sister of Goddess Ganga.
The divine motherly love of Parvati is visible with her two children Ganpati and Kartikay. According to the Hindu Belief, Parvati is the second consort of Shiva, the Hindu God of destruction and rejuvenation. Although, she is not different from Dakshayani (Sati), being the reincarnation of that former consort of Lord Shiva.

Parvati - Form of Shakti
Parvati is believed to be one of the many forms of "Shakti". People take her to be the divine sister of Maa Kali, Maa Lakshmi, Maa Saraswati, Durga and all other forms of Shakti. Durga (Goddess beyond reach) and Kali (Goddess of Destruction) are the two fierce but very powerful forms of Parvati.

Goddess Parvati - Other Names
The word Parvati has been derived from a Sanskrit word "Parvat" meaning mountain. So, "Parvati" means "she of the mountains" and suggests that Parvati is the daughter of Himavat (the personification of the Himalayas) and the apsara (fairy) Mena. Lalita, Uma, Gauri, Kali, Durga, Haimavati etc are the other names for Parvati. Amba is the other name of Parvati being the mother of the universe and Ambika, being the 'mother'. As Lalita, she represents the aspect of beauty and magnificence. Lalita Saharanama contains a thousand of her names.

Parvati - Her Symbolism
Goddess Parvati symbolizes noble virtues admired by the Hindu religion. Parvati is the better half of Lord Shiva, the most innocent and the fiercest God in Hindu tradition. The couple together symbolizes both power of renunciation and asceticism and the blessings of marital felicity. There are legends behind the marriage of lord Shiva and Parvati, being a devotee of Shiv-Shambhu. Parvati did a lot of tap in order to get Shiva as her soul mate. Parvati's dedication was really true which made Lord Shiva to marry her.

Fertility, marital felicity, devotion to the spouse, asceticism and power are different virtues symbolized by Parvati. These virtues are highly valued by the Hindu tradition. As per a famous literary work on the Goddess, Saundarya Lahiri, Parvati is the source of all the power in this universe and Lord Shiva gets all his powers from her.

12472 Samadhi (Vedic):
A state of spiritual ecstasy in which consciousness leaves the body." But this is not the whole phenomenon, as the breath stops and so does the beating of the heart. But it is not a form of trance as in the trance state both of these continue. It is claimed that Samadhi is a state attained only by highly Enlightened people--people who have reached Spiritual Illumination. It is a state where the spirit temporarily leaves the body and goes into one of bliss. All the Enlightened Ones who have attained Samadhi describe it as Bliss.
Revelations and enlightenments during meditation.

2815 Soma (Vedic):
Soma Skanda is the result of the union of two potent opposite forces (yin and yang) giving rebirth to the aspirant as an evolved being. This is best described in mythology as the union of Shiva and Parvati resulting in the birth of Soma Skanda and hence results in immortality.
****************************************
Vedic God of plants, healer of disease and bestower of riches. Soma, also the "elixir of life", is the union of the twin currents of kundalini energy in the human body, culminating in higher consciousness.
****************************************
Throughout history great prophets and mystics, as well as scientists and geniuses, have been inspired by transcendental experiences and accessed higher consciousness through the sacred use of intoxicants and hallucinatory drugs.
Soma is an intoxicating or hallucinogenic beverage, used as an offering to the Hindu gods and consumed by participants in Vedic ritual sacrifices.
In ancient Indian religion, an unidentified plant, the juice of which was an offering of the Vedic sacrifices. Its stalks were pressed, and its juice, filtered through wool, was mixed with water and milk. After being offered as a libation to the gods, the remainder of the soma was consumed by the priests and the sacrificer. It was highly valued for its exhilarating, probably hallucinogenic, effect. The plant was believed to have been delivered to the earth from heaven by an eagle. The personified deity Soma was the master of plants, healer of disease, and bestower of riches.
****************************************
In India, the Manava Dharma Shastra (Ordinances of Manu), a code of religious and civil duties, prohibited intoxication on the part of Brahmin priests and made it clear that the soma drink was from a plant, not a mushroom. This plant is sometimes called the "moon plant," and soma was traditionally associated with the moon.
Yoga treatises on meditation suggest that the true soma, or elixir of life, is the union of the twin currents of kundalini energy in the human body, culminating in higher consciousness. Some Hindus believe in kundalini as a latent energy situated at the base of the spine that is activated in normal life in sexual activity, but which may also be drawn upward in subtle channels of the spine to a center in the head, illuminating the consciousness with mystical awareness. The goal of some forms of yoga practice is often referred to as the union of the sun and moon, the fiery and cool kundalini currents in the spinal column. At the junction of these currents, the blissful condition is described as "drinking the soma juice," and the energy flow as "amaravaruni" (wine drinking).
****************************************
According to Hinduism, every part of the cosmos is seen as an action of a god. Time is the endless repetition of the same long cycle where gods, demons and heroes repeat their mythological actions. In Hindu mythology, Soma represents the god of the Moon. He rides through the sky in a chariot drawn by white horses. Soma was also the name of the elixir of immortality that only the gods can drink. The Moon was thought to be the storehouse of the elixir.
****************************************
The moon, born from the eyes of Atri, son of Brahma; made the sovereign of plants and planets.
Soma ran away with Tara (Star), wife of Vrihaspata, preceptor of the gods, and Buddha was their offspring. (Hindu mythology.)
To drink the Soma. To become immortal. In the Vedic hymns the Soma is the moon-plant, the juice of which confers immortality, and exhilarates even the gods.
It is said to be brought down from heaven by a falcon.

****************************************
Soma is an ancient word, going back to the dawn of time. It is used in the Vedas, the sacred chants of what is now called India, to refer to the way that meditation wakes up the senses. Soma refers to the magic of life that is there in a breath, if we really savor it - not just as a metaphor, but as pointing to a quality of prana that is available everwhere.

25290 Vibhuti:

Sacred Ash.
Vibhuti is the sacred ash used in religious worship in Hinduism. The vibhuti ash is generally the residue of cow dung that is burned in a sacred fire (Homa). The main ingredient of Vibuthi is cow dung ash but several other substances prescribed in scriptures are also used. Vibuthi is placed on the forehead as it is considered sacred and holy. Some devotees add a small amount to the tongue to pay respect to the deity.
The ash has several symbolic meanings.
* Placed on the forehead of devotees, it serves as a sectarian mark (tilaka). The practice of smearing holy ash on the forehead also exists in Zoroastrianism and Catholicism.
* In worship connected with Lord Shiva it is a symbol of purity and is one of the main sacraments given at pūjā in all Åšaivite temples and shrines.
* The ash thus serves as a reminder to the believer to cast away selfish and worldly desires that wrap the self in maya, and calls to mind the story of how Shiva burned Kama (the God of desire) to ashes when Kama attempted to break Shiva's focus on the Divine Truth.

Vibhuti can refer to glorious attributes of the divine, and in this context is translated as 'all pervading', 'superhuman power', 'wealth' and so on.

42 Isis (Egyptian):

Egyptian archetypal wife and mother.

The spiritual Mother, cleanse, transformation, alchemy of soul. The mate of Osiris. Picking up the pieces and breathing new life into situations torn by deceit or trauma. Knowing when and how to release that whose time has come.

****************************************
Isis, the Egyptian Goddess of Magic, is considered by many to be the absolute ultimate in Goddesses, and she is referred to as "The Mother of All Goddesses". Isis was an earth Goddess who, of all the Egyptian Goddesses, was the most caring ruler. The mighty Isis served her people as a midwife and physician, teacher and friend.
Isis was a gal who had all the bases covered! The Goddess Isis was such a well-rounded and complete woman that she was called "She of Ten Thousand Names".
Read the beautiful story of the love that refused to die . . . the inspiring legend of the eternal love that the Goddess Isis had for her husband Osiris and how she breathed life into his broken body with her wings.
Isis, the Egyptian Goddess of rebirth, continues to be one of the most familiar images of empowered and complete femininity.

****************************************
Isis, also know as Au Set ("exceeding queen") and Isis Panthea ("Isis the All-Goddess"), was worshipped in many places including Egypt, the Roman Empire, Greece, and Germany. When her beloved Osiris was killed ten dismembered and scattered by her brother Set, Isis searched out teh pieces and reassembled them. She found all but his penis, which she replaced with one of gold. Through use of her magic and healing arts she brought Osiris back to life then conceivedm through his golden penis, the Sun God Horus. When the temples of Isis were turned into Christian churches, Isis with baby Horus on her lap became the Virgin Mary and Jesus.
The Lessons of this Goddess:
Isis has appeared in your life to tell you it is time for mothering. Have you been giving all your mothering energy away without keeping some for yourself? Have you taken on a new project or just had a new baby? Do you feel that something needs extra mothering, but you aren't up to it? Did your own mother or care- giver give you the mothering you needed? The Goddess says that it is important to get the mothering you need in order to heal past wounds. Everyone nned to be mothered, regardless of whether you are a maiden, mother, or crone.
****************************************
The greatest Egyptian Goddess, the embodiment of female divinity. Her Latin epithet was Stella Maris, or "star of the sea". Isis become synonymous with the image of devoted mother and wife and symbolizes all that true and pure in woman -her devotion to Osiris became a legend. She is the Goddess of Moon and Cow is her sacred animal because she nurtures and feeds mankind. The horns of the cow create the base of her crown and represent the moon, upon which set the solar disc- thus, she represents both male and female divine principles.
****************************************
Isis, Egyptian Goddess of Magic and Giver of Life:
Isis, the Egyptian Goddess of rebirth remains one of the most familiar images of empowered and utter femininity. The Goddess Isis was the first daughter of Geb, God of the Earth, and Nut, the Goddess of the Overarching Sky. Isis was born on the first day between the first years of creation, and was adored by her human followers.

Unlike the other Egyptian Goddesses, the Goddess Isis spent time among her people, teaching women how to grind corn and make bread, spin flax and weave cloth, and how to tame men enough to live with them (an art form on which many of us would welcome a refresher course!)

Isis taught her people the skills of reading and agriculture and was worshipped as the Goddess of medicine and wisdom.
****************************************
More than any other of the ancient Egyptian Goddesses, Isis embodied the characteristics of all the lesser Goddesses that preceded her. Isis became the model on which future generations of female deities in other cultures were to be based.

As the personification of the "complete female", Isis was called "The One Who Is All", Isis Panthea ("Isis the All Goddess"), and the "Lady of Ten Thousand Names".

The Goddess Isis, a moon Goddess, gave birth to Horus, the God of the sun. Together, Isis and Horus created and sustained all life and were the saviors of their people.
****************************************
Isis became the most powerful of the Gods and Goddesses in the ancient world. Ra, the God of the Sun, originally had the greatest power. But Ra was uncaring, and the people of the world suffered greatly during his reign.

The Goddess Isis tricked him by mixing some of his saliva with mud to create a poisonous snake that bit him, causing him great suffering which she then offered to cure. He eventually agreed.

Isis informed Ra that, for the cure to work, she would have to speak his secret name (which was the source of his power over life and death). Reluctantly, he whispered it to her.

When Isis uttered his secret name while performing her magic, Ra was healed. But the Goddess Isis then possessed his powers of life and death, and quickly became the most powerful of the Egyptian Gods and Goddesses, using her great powers to the benefit of the people.
****************************************
Isis was called the Mother of Life, but she was also known as the Crone of Death. Her immense powers earned her the titles of "The Giver of Life" and "Goddess of Magic". Her best known story illustrates why she is simultaneously known as a creation Goddess and a Goddess of destruction.

Isis was the Goddess of the Earth in ancient Egypt and loved her brother Osiris. When they married, Osiris became the first King of Earth. Their brother Set, immensely jealous of their powers, murdered Osiris so he could usurp the throne.

Set did this by tricking Osiris into stepping into a beautiful box made of cedar, ebony and ivory that he had ordered built to fit only Osiris. Set then sealed it up to become a coffin and threw it into the river. The river carried the box out to sea; it washed up in another country, resting in the upper boughs of a tamarisk tree when the waters receded.

As time passed, the branches covered the box, encapsulating the God in his coffin in the trunk of the tree.

In a state of inconsolable grief, Isis tore her robes to shreds and cut off her beautiful black hair. When she finally regained her emotional balance, Isis set out to search for the body of her beloved Osiris so that she might bury him properly.
****************************************

The search took Isis to Phoenicia where she met Queen Astarte. Astarte didn't recognize the Goddess and hired her as a nursemaid to the infant prince.

Fond of the young boy, Isis decided to bestow immortality on him. As she was holding the royal infant over the fire as part of the ritual, the Queen entered the room. Seeing her son smoldering in the middle of the fire, Astarte instinctively (but naively) grabbed the child out of the flames, undoing the magic of Isis that would have made her son a God.

When the Queen demanded an explanation, Isis revealed her identity and told Astarte of her quest to recover her husband's body. As she listened to the story, Astarte realized that the body was hidden in the fragrant tree in the center of the palace and told Isis where to find it.

Sheltering his broken body in her arms, the Goddess Isis carried the body of Osiris back to Egypt for proper burial. There she hid it in the swamps on the delta of the Nile river.
****************************************
Unfortunately, Set came across the box one night when he was out hunting. Infuriated by this turn of events and determined not to be outdone, he murdered Osiris once again . . . this time hacking his body into 14 pieces and throwing them in different directions knowing that they would be eaten by the crocodiles.

The Goddess Isis searched and searched, accompanied by seven scorpions who assisted and protected her. Each time she found new pieces she rejoined them to re-form his body.

But Isis could only recover thirteen of the pieces. The fourteenth, his penis, had been swallowed by a crab, so she fashioned one from gold and wax. Then inventing the rites of embalming, and speaking some words of magic, Isis brought her husband back to life.

Magically, Isis then conceived a child with Osiris, and gave birth to Horus, who later became the Sun God. Assured that having the infant would now relieve Isis' grief, Osiris was free to descend to become the King of the Underworld, ruling over the dead and the sleeping.

His spirit, however, frequently returned to be with Isis and the young Horus who both remained under his watchful and loving eye.
****************************************
There are many other variations of this myth . . . in some Isis found the body of Osiris in Byblos, fashioned his penis out of clay. In others the Goddess consumed the dismembered parts she found and brought Osiris back to life, reincarnating him as her son Horus.

In one of the most beautiful renditions, Isis turns into a sparrowhawk and hovers over the body of Osiris, fanning life back into him with her long wings.

Regardless of the differences, each version speaks of the power over life and death that the Goddess Isis symbolizes. . . the deep mysteries of the feminine ability to create and to bring life from that which is lifeless.

To this day the celebration of the flooding of the Nile each year is called "The Night of the Drop" by Muslims. . . for it used to be named "The Night of the Tear-Drop" a remembrance of the extent of the Isis' lamentation of the death of Osiris, her tears so plentiful they caused the Nile to overflow.
****************************************
The Egyptian Goddess Isis played an important role in the development of modern religions, although her influence has been largely forgotten.

She was worshipped throughout the Greco-Roman world. During the fourth century when Christianity was making its foothold in the Roman Empire, her worshippers founded the first Madonna cults in order to keep her influence alive.

Some early Christians even called themselves Pastophori, meaning the shepherds or servants of Isis. . . which may be where the word "pastors" originated. The influence of Isis is still seen in the Christian ikons of the faithful wife and loving mother.

Indeed, the ancient images of Isis nursing the infant Horus inspired the style of portraits of mother and child for centuries, including those of the "Madonna and Child" found in religious art.

The power of the Goddess Isis in the "public arena" was also profound. Her role as a guide to the Underworld, was often portrayed with winged arms outstretched in a protective position. The image of the wings of Isis was incorporated into the Egyptian throne on which the pharaohs would sit, the wings of Isis protecting them.
****************************************
The ancient Egyptian Goddess Isis has many gifts to share with modern women. Isis embodies the strengths of the feminine, the capacity to feel deeply about relationships, the act of creation, and the source of sustenance and protection.

At times Isis could be a clever trickster empowered by her feminine wiles rather than her logic or brute strength, but it is also the Goddess Isis who shows us how we can use our personal gifts to create the life we desire rather than simply opposing that which we do not like.

The myths of Isis and Osiris caution us about the need for occasional renewal and reconnection in our relationships. Isis also reminds us to acknowledge and accept the depths of our emotions.

1923 Osiris (Egyptian):

The spiritual Father, court, retribution, alchemy of spirit. Helps in awakening to past life heroism and past life true love.

Osiris is the Egyptian God of death and the underworld.

1912 Anubis (Egyptian):

Shamanism, dialogue to spirits and with forces of nature. The Messenger, dialogue with spirits, with forces of a nature, healing, guard between the worlds. Helps in awareness of soul journeys/sensing spirits. Traveling through the labyrinth of the soul. Coming face to face with Universal powers.

Anubis, is the Greek name for the ancient God in Egyptian mythology. Prayers to Anubis have been found carved on the most ancient tombs in Egypt, indeed the Unas text (line 70) associates him with the Eye of Horus.
Dogs and jackals often loitered at the edges of the desert, especially near the cemeteries where the dead were buried, in fact, it is thought that the Egyptians began the practice of making elaborate graves and tombs to protect the dead from desecration by jackals. In consequence, Anubis was usually thought of as a jackal, an association reinforced by certain variations of his hieroglyph, which can be translated as young dog. Thus, ancient Egyptian texts say that Anubis, like a jackal, silently walked through the shadows of life and death and lurked in dark places, watchful by day as well as by night.
In art, he was usually depicted as a man with the head of a jackal, and alert ears, often wearing a ribbon, and wielding a whip. On very rare occasions, Anubis was shown fully human, or slightly more frequently as fully jackal. However, Anubis was also depicted as black, rather than brown, the colour of jackals, since black was the colour that the body turned as a result of mummification.
As ruler over the dead, he was given titles such as He who is set upon his mountain, in reference to his sitting atop desert cliffs to guard multiple necropolis, and Chontamenti (also spelt Khentimentiu, and Khentamenti), meaning Lord of the Westerners, in reference to Egyptian belief that the entrance to the underworld was towards the west, since that was the direction in which the sun set. As ruler, he was also said to have been victorious over the dark forces (described as nine bows), which also, naturally, lurk in the underworld, gaining him the title Jackal ruler of the bows.
As king of the underworld, he was also considered to be the one who weighed the heart of the dead against the feather of Maàt (the concept of truth), gaining him the title He who counts the hearts. One of the reasons that the ancient Egyptians took such care to preserve their dead with sweet-smelling herbs was that it became believed Anubis would check each person with his keen canine nose. Only if they smelled pure would he allow them to enter the Kingdom of the Dead.
Embalmer
Following the merging of the Ennead and Ogdoad belief systems, as a result of the identification of Atum with Ra, and their compatibility, Anubis became considered a lesser God in the underworld, giving way to the more popular Osiris. Indeed, when the Legend of Osiris and Isis emerged, it was said that when Osiris had died, Anubis stood down from his position out of respect for Osiris.
Since he had been more associated with beliefs about the weighing of the heart, than had Osiris, Anubis retained this aspect, and became considered more the gatekeeper of the underworld, the Guardian of the veil (of death). As such he was said to protect souls as they journeyed there, and thus be the patron of lost souls (and consequently orphans). Rather than God of death, he had become God of dying, and consequently funeral arrangements. It was as the God of dying that his identity merged with that of Wepwawet, a similar jackal-headed God, associated with funerary practice, who had been worshipped in Upper Egypt, whereas Anubis' cult had centred in Lower Egypt.
As one of the most important funerary rites in Egypt involved the process of embalming, so it was that Anubis became the God of embalming, in the process gaining titles such as He who belongs to the mummy wrappings, and He who is before the divine [embalming] booth. High priests often wore the Anubis mask to perform the ceremonial deeds of embalming. It also became said, frequently in the Book of the dead, that it had been Anubis who embalmed the dead body of Osiris, with the assistance of the other main funerary deities involved - Nepthys, and Isis. Having become God of embalming, Anubis became strongly associated with the (currently) mysterious and ancient imiut fetish, present during funerary rites, and Bast, who by this time was Goddess of ointment, initially became thought of as his mother.
In later times, during the Ptolemaic period, as their functions were similar, Anubis was identified as the Greek God Hermes, becoming Hermanubis. The centre of this cult was in uten-ha/Sa-ka/Cynopolis, a place whose Greek name simply means city of dogs. In Book xi of The Golden Ass by Apuleius, we find evidence that the worship of this God was maintained in Rome at least up to the 2nd century. Indeed, Hermanubis also appears in the alchemical and hermetical literature of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.

1924 Horus (Egyptian):

Horus is one of the important Gods of the ancient Egyptians. He is represented as a falcon-headed God. The ancient Egyptians worshipped a lot of different Gods. However Horus is very powerful and important as he is represented by many forms all meaning kinship and power.
Horus famous story is derived from being the son of Osiris and Isis, the son who avenged his father's death by the hands of his uncle set and thus became , the son God, the ruler and the law. The son of Osiris and Isis, Horus became the ruler of Egypt after Osiris' death. In order to win the throne, Horus had to do battle against his uncle, the God Set.
set was defeated and was relegated to the role of ruler of the chaotic desert lands surrounding Egypt. As a divine ruler, Horus had associations with the living pharaoh. Sometimes depicted as a falcon or a man with a falcon head, Horus was also seen as a sun sky. As the child of Isis, Horus was also worshipped in the form of Harpocrates (Horus-the-child) and is often shown as a child nursing at the breast of Isis. In the Late Period images of Horus the child were placed on small plaques called "cippi," which were used to ward off evil and provide cures from illnesses and snake bites.

This God has several names and several forms with different faces. He is the divine personification of the kingship and the God of the heavens at the same time.
The name Horus comes from the Egyptian word Hor, which translates as 'face'. We find him worshipped as Mekhenti-irry which translates as 'He who has on his brow Two Eyes', the sun and moon representing his eyes. On nights when there is no moon we find him worshipped as Mekhenti-en-irty, 'He who on his brow has no eyes', in this form he was considered the God of the blind.

The followers of Horus invaded Egypt in pre dynastic history, at this time he was venerated as a victorious warlord. He became a part of the state religion and was associated with the sun God, Ra. Horus was so important to the state religion that Pharaohs were considered his human manifestation and even took on the name Horus.

Other Names:

Haroeris (Horus the Elder) An early form of Horus. He was a God of light. His eyes represented the sun and the moon. He was also the brother of Osiris and set. Sometimes he was the son, or the husband of Hathor.
Horus Behudety In the form of Horus of Edfu, he represented the midday sun. This Horus was worshipped in the western Delta and later, as his cult spread south into Upper Egypt, a cult center was established in Edfu. Horus of Edfu fights a great battle against set and an army of conspirators. He is pictured as a winged sun-disk or as a hawk headed lion.

Ra-Harakhte (Horus of the two horizons) This horus was identified with Ra and the daily voyage of the sun from horizon to horizon. The two deities combined to become Ra-Harakhte. He was represented as a falcon or a falcon-headed man wearing the solar disk and double crown or the uraeus and the atef crown.

Harmakhet (Horus in the Horizon) In this form he represented the rising sun and was associated with Khepri. He was also considered to be the keeper of wisdom. He was sometimes pictured as a man with a falcon's head, or a falcon headed lion. But his most recognizable form is that of a sphinx, or as a ram-headed sphinx.
Harsiesis (Horus son of Isis) This Horus was the son of Isis and Osiris. He was conceived magically after the death of Osiris and brought up by Isis on a floating island in the marshes of Buto. The child was weak and in constant danger from the scheming of his wicked uncle set, who sent serpents and monsters to attack him. But his mother, Isis was great in the magical arts and she warded off this evil by using a spell against creatures biting with their mouths and stinging with their tails, and the young Horus survived and grew.

Harpokrates (The infant Horus) As a child he represented the new born sun and was often pictured being suckled by Isis. he was usually represented as a seated child, sucking his thumb, his head was shaved except for the sidelock of youth. Even as a child, he wore the royal crown and uraeus.

Harendotes (Horus the avenger of his father).

Har-pa-Neb-Taui (Horus Lord of the Two Lands).

Heru, Hor, Harendotes/Har-nedj-itef (Horus the Avenger), Har-Pa-Neb-Taui (Horus Lord of the Two Lands).

Patron of: the living Pharaoh, rulers, law, war, young men, light, the sun, many others depending on the particular variant.

Appearance: His most common form is that of falcon-headed man, but he is also shown as a falcon, a lion with the head of a falcon, or a sphinx. He is also shown as a falcon resting on the neck of the pharaoh, spreading his wings to either side of the pharaoh's head and whispering guidance in his ear.
Description: It is nearly impossible to distinguish a "true" Horus from all his many forms. In fact, Horus is mostly a general term for a great number of falcon Gods, some of which were worshipped all over Egypt, others simply had local cults. Yet in all of his forms he is regarded as the prince of the Gods and the specific patron of the living ruler.
As the living king was a Horus, when he died, his successor became the new living image of Horus and the dead king became Osiris, Horus' father. The cyclic renewal of the creation was thus ensured by the constantly renewing monarchy. As the heir of Osiris, Horus also represents all that is just and right. After Osiris was murdered by his brother set, his heritage was claimed by set, who tried to cast aside Osiris' legal heir. With the help of his mother Isis, Horus demands justice and attacks his uncle. When Horus emerges victoriously from his battles with set, Osiris' heritage is given to him, ending the chaos and uncertainty of set's rule. Because of his battles against injustice, Horus is also seen as a protector-God, a God who attacks and destroys evil where- and whenever he can.
As the God of the heavens, he is often represented as a falcon or as a man with the head of a falcon. As such, he is the protector of the heaven and of the sun God Re.

The worship of Horus was brought from the outside by neighboring tribes who invaded and then settled into Egypt. He was their God of war, but was quickly absorbed into the state religion, first as a son of Ra, then changing to become the son of Osiris. He was the protector and guide to the pharaoh and later pharaohs were believed to be his avatar on earth. Horus was also the patron of young men and the ideal of the dutiful son who grows up to become a just man.
The most popular story of Horus is the one in which he grows to manhood to avenge the death of his father Osiris by battling against his cruel uncle Set. In many writings, he is said to continue to battle Set daily to ensure the safety of the world.

Worship: Worshipped widely throughout all of Egypt, even his variant forms were widespread.

Birth & Flight of Horus:
Then there is the myth sometimes called the Birth and Flight of Horus. This tale, found in the Coffin Texts, is a combination of two stories. The first is the birth of Horus, and the second is a very old and fragmented myth that the sun burst out of an egg laid by a primeval being or goose floating on the primordial waters before creation. The Birth and Flight of Horus begins just after Osiris's death. The tone is much more serious than that of the Delta Cycle or the Great Quarrel. The world was being terrorized by Set. Isis dreamed that she would have a son who would avenge her husband's death and asked Atum if this son would be allowed a seat on the sun boat. However, just before the birth, Isis realized that she would be giving birth to a Falcon, not a child. Upon the birth, Atum saluted Horus and told him that he would give him his name after Horus flew to the horizon. While the company was discussing other matters, such as Horus's seat on the boat, Horus flew up on his own, higher than even the "old" Gods who inhabited the constellations. Horus proclaimed to the Gods below that he would, indeed, avenge his father's death. This myth, as mentioned before, combines two others together. According to some sources, there were actually two Gods named Horus. The first, the original Falcon, flew up at the beginning of time upon his birth. The second, son of Isis, was forced to grow up in secret for fear of Set, as described in the Delta Cycle myth. The myth of the Birth and Flight of Horus brings these two Gods into one.

287 Nephthys (Egyptian):

Protective Goddess of the Dead. Nephthys, the Egyptian Goddess, symbolized the transitional nature of death. In one Egyptian myth she helped Isis collect the scattered limbs of Osiris to reconstitute his body.

Among her titles, Nephthys was known as the Sister of Isis, Mistress of the House, Lady of the Body (of the Gods), the Dweller within Senu, Lady of Heaven, Mistress of the Gods, the Great Goddess and Lady of Life. Her major centres of worships were Senu, Hebet, (Behbit), Per-mert, Re-nefert, Het-sekhem, Het-Khas, Ta-kehset, and Diospolites. Her principal sanctuary was at Iunu (On, Heliopolis).
She was depicted as a woman with the hieroglyph of her name (a basket and a house on top of each other) on her head, though she was also sometimes given wings or the form of a bird (the kite), making her a solar deity, as well as a deity of the dead. In the later period, she became the mother of Anubis (the God of the dead) through Osiris.
As comforter, she stood at the birth-bed to offer comfort and help with the birth of new born children - Isis was seen as the midwife. The two sisters were often together, only being able to be told apart by the hieroglyph on their heads. Also, like her sister, she was thought to have great magical powers - she was the Mighty One of Words of Power.
She was the darkness to Isis' light, the bareness to contrast her sister's fertility. Friend to the dead, their protector, she was a beneficial deity who offered both guidance and comfort. Although linked with death and decay, she was also a bringer of life into the world, and rebirth into the land of the dead. Leaving her husband Set, she became a follower of Osiris and a supporter of her sister. In Egyptian art, the twin sisters were almost always shown together. Great of magic, Nephthys was seen as a good Goddess who would give them rebirth in the land of the dead, just as she had helped Osiris to be reborn.
The Witch: Nephthys was associated with the unseen world and Magic, using knowledge of the universal laws of nature, the conscious mind and esoteric powers to manifest one's desires.
Strengths: She is a protective Goddess and represents the cycle of Death and Rebirth.

Weaknesses: The duality of her nature means she is often neglected and misunderstood.
Nephthys's Symbolism: In her funery role Nephthys was often symbolized by a hawk, falcon or a woman with wings outstretched in protection. She is also shown with her Hieroglyphs (a basket and a house) balanced on her head.

Sacred Birds: Falcons and Hawks.
Additionally this Goddess is the protector of the Phoenix whose rise from the ashes symbolises rebith.

5381 Sekhmet (Egyptian):

The Egyptian Goddess principle of spiritual transformation. Helps Egyptian Neuro Magick.

The Goddess of sunset, destruction, death, and wisdom. The cycle of life and death was created when the primeval Goddess Sekhmet-Bast divided into two sisters, Sekhmet and Bast. Wife of Ptah. Het Heret is often depicted as Sekhmet’s “more gentle side”. Sekhmet is typically shown as a black skinned woman with the head of a lioness. Her eyes and hair are often orange or red.
Halloween was originally celebrated as the Feast of Sekhmet and Bast.
Sekhmet is the wise old grand-mother leg of the divine triangle/ trinity. She is called Kali in the east, and she is also known as the destroyer Goddess. She helps us to bring to a close that which does not serve us in our lives. In Astrology she will resonate strongly with Saturn, Pluto, and the asteroid Chiron. She wants renewal and healing for everything and relentlessly creates the conditions for us to keep growing and changing, by moving us out of static patterns and into the dynamic quality of new experience. She is depicted as a woman with the head of a lion. In the tarot she will resonate with the High Priestess card, and the Death Card, and the Queen of Swords, and the Justice or Adjustment card.
She may seem hard on us at times, but it is because we in our drama can be unable to see the rebirth that is always involved with the endings and “deaths” we encounter through our experience here at this octave of conciousness.

****************************************

In Egyptian mythology Sekhmet (also spelt Sachmet, Sakhet, and Sakhmet), was originally the war Goddess of Upper Egypt, although when the first Pharaoh of the 12th dynasty moved the capital of Egypt to Memphis, her cult centre moved as well. As Lower Egypt had been conquered by Upper Egypt, Sekhmet was seen as the more viscious of the two war Goddesses, the other, Bast, being the war Goddess for Lower Egypt. Consequently it was Sekhmet who was seen as the avenger of wrongs, and scarlet lady, a reference to blood. As the one with blood-lust, she was also seen as ruling over menstruation.
Her name suits her function, and means one who is powerful. She was also given titles such as one before whom evil trembles, and lady of slaughter. Sekhmet was believed to protect the pharaoh in battle, stalking the land, and destroying his enemies with arrows of fire, her body being said to take on the bright glare of the midday sun, gaining her the title lady of flame. Indeed it was said that death and destruction was balsam for her heart, and hot desert winds were believed to be this Goddess's breath.
****************************************
Sekhmet (pronounced sek'met), the lion-headed Egyptian Sun Goddess, is known as the destructive aspect of the Sun. Vowing to destroy all humanity in a fit of rage, she went on a killing spree. She was stopped by the intervention of Ra, the high God, who put huge vats of beer mixed with pomegranate juice in her path. Mistaking it for human blood, Sekhmet consumed the drink and became intoxicated. When she woke up, her rage was gone. Red in this painting signifies Sekhmet's scorching, smoldering nature.
The Lessons of this Goddess:
Sekhmet leaps into your life to help you face your anger. Does anger, yours or someone else's, make you feel uncomfortable? Do you fear your anger because you were taught anger isn't nice? or that expressing anger is ugly? Have you repressed or disconnected from it so much so that you don't know how to express it now? Perhaps you've gone beyond anger to rage. Rage is accumulated anger gone out of control. Perhaps you're in a slow boil all the time and don't know how to take the pot from the fire. The Goddess says our anger is part of our power as women. Don't give away your anger. Learn to express it in a way that it can be heard. Learn to transform it so it empowers and energized you. Your path to wholeness will be more vital when you make anger your ally.

5249 Giza (Egyptian):

Represents where in our chart we can access the most ancient storehouse of wisdom. It also represents our specific initial attitude to the pyramids of Giza in this lifeline.

_________________________________________________________________

896 Sphinx (Egyptian):

Secretly guarded knowledge. Sphinx is the guardian of the Pyramids or the keeper of the secrets.

****************************************
The Sphinx apprears in Greek mythology as the monster - a woman's head and breasts, dog's body, lion's paws, wings of an eagle, and the tail of the serpent-who questioned Oedipus. To the ancient Egyptians, she symbolically represented the Nile and its seasons. She was also a manifestation of Hathor, Goddess of birth and death. The Sphinx of Egypt was built as guardian of the horizons, the rising and setting sun. It held the keys to the wisdom gates. In the path to deep knowing, initiates had to confront the challenges that the Sphinx posed.
The Lessons of this Goddess:
The Sphinx will not let yo pass until you respond to her challenge. She asks: "How can you meet a challenge and prosper in all the aspects of your being?" You can let yourself get torn down by challenge, or kicked or pounded or defeated, but how can you take the challenge and use its energy to nurture yourself? Have you been running from challenge all your life and now find you haven't developed the energy or power to face them? Perhaps it's easier to ignore challenge and go on with self-limiting behavior. Or maybe you feel that life is all messed up. Whatever way you have been dancing with challenge in the past has to change. The greatest challenge in living is how you respond to challenges. The Goddess says the only way to wholeness on your path is to meet your challenges face-to-face.

93 Minerva (Roman):
Minerva, Goddess of wisdom, the counterpart of the Greek Goddess Athena. Homer called her 'the blue-eyed Minerva' and by Ovid 'the yellow-haired'.
Minerva was the great Goddess of wise counsel, war and peace, the defence of towns, heroic endeavour, wisdom and ethics, weaving, pottery and arts and crafts. She is an inventor and artisan, the Goddess of order and bringer of civilization. Though a war Goddess, She participates only to defend right order and to bring justice. Her clear thinking and quick mind have brought many benefits to mankind, including the olive and its precious oil. Minerva's gift was the olive tree.
Minerva was probably originally a Goddess of lightning and storms, hence the spear (representing the lightning) and Her famous brilliant eyes. Birds as creatures of the air are Hers as well, especially the owl, with its bright eyes and reputation for wisdom.
Associated with the city and an urbane lifestyle, during peacetime the Goddess Minerva utilized her talents overseeing the progress of civilization, including being the patroness of literature and the arts.
Minerva is associated with wisdom and intuition. Brought in with these attributes are those of logic and applied strategy. It is also creative of original thought, showing artistic ability. Minerva also rules the relationship between father and daughter. It is also representative of the Warrior Woman and the fight to escape from oppressive male domination. On the negative side, it also rules such things as incest and abuse. It is also concerned with science, the code of genetics and with biotechnology.
Minerva is sympathetic to the air signs especially the justice and strategy of Libra and the intelligence and objectivity of Aquarius. She is aligned with the masculine archetypes of Mars and Uranus and close to Jupiter, her father’s realm.
The myths of Minerva remind us that thoughtful planning and the marshalling of our resources can help us reach our goals.
Minerva brings strength and wisdom, and aid in determining the best course - consult Her in a situation when you are not sure whether to use diplomacy or if the time has come to fight.
****************************************
Minerva is the Roman equivalent of Greek Athena. She is the virgin Goddess of wisdom, invention, music (the inventor of music), poetry, the arts, crafts, martial prowess, warriors, healing, medicine and commerce. She came to be identified with the Greek Athena.
She is one of three virgin Goddesses along with Diana and Vesta.
****************************************
Keywords:
artistic, arts and crafts, biotechnology, confidence, conflict, creative, daughter, diplomacy, genetics, healing, horses, immune system, injustice, intelligence, intuition, justice, learning, legal battles, logic, politics, science, strategy, strength, wisdom
Wherever Minerva falls in the birthchart shows the area of life where these talents are likely to be found and in what capacity.
****************************************
Minerva, the Roman and Etruscan Goddess of intelligence, creativity, wisdom, domiestic skills, and handicrafts was the patroness of artisans, of all people whose handiwork was guided by their minds. Her very name comes from the ancient root for "mind". Minerva appears here with her sacred tree, the olive. She wears an aegis, whis is a breastplate edged with snakes and an owl on her headdress which identifies her as a Goddess of death and the deepest mysteries.
The Lessons of this Goddess:
Minerva has come to tell you it is time to examine your beliefs and change them if they do not nurture your wholeness. How are old, outworn, unhealthy thoughts undermining your life, your energy, your happiness? Do you believe what other people think and/or say about you? Aer you still running the tape of negative messages your parents or caregivers gave you when you were a child? Do you believe the worst of yourself, or the best? Are your beliefs too rigid to permit and support your evolution? We all are born with a story. It is our choice whether we want to live the story we were born with or create one that nourishes all we want to be. The Goddess says that wholeness is nurtured when you see yourself with all your parts - both dark and light - and choose your beliefs to serve your highest good.
****************************************
Minerva is thought to be of Etruscan origin, as the Goddess Menrva or Menerva. Later she was equated with the Greek Athena. Minerva was the daughter of Jupiter and Metis. She was considered to be the virgin Goddess of warriors, poetry, medicine, wisdom, commerce, crafts, and the inventor of music. As 'Minerva Medica', she was the Goddess of medicine and doctors. Minerva is believed to be the inventor of numbers and musical instruments.
Adapting Greek myths about Athena, Romans said that Minerva was not born in the usual way, but rather sprang fully armed from the brain of her father; this image has captivated Western writers and artists through the ages. Ovid called her the "Goddess of a thousand works." Minerva was worshipped throughout Italy, though only in Rome did she take on a warlike character. Minerva is usually depicted wearing a coat of mail and a helmet, and carrying a spear.
In the temple on the Capitoline Hill she was worshipped together with Jupiter and Juno, with whom she formed a powerful triad of Gods. Another temple of her was located on the Aventine Hill. The church of Santa Maria sopra Minerva is built on one of her temples.
According to legend, the Queen of Spades playing card depicts Minerva.
****************************************
The wisdom of reflection and strategy.
Extremely sexual and responsive and sexually caring to partners. Sexual negotiation skills. Sex is deeply transformative and regenerative and can go through certain cycles. Honour and respect is number one here. Sex and lust could take over in spontaneous busy days and nights. Profundity in sex. Sometimes sexual obsession. Both partners need to contribute, as control dampens the enthusiasm.
Minerva is the warrior-Goddess, who is making a re-emergence in a number of forms in our culture. Astrologically, she represents political and negotiating skills, having been transformed into a kind of modern lawyer-like warrior.
Defenses and defensiveness can be involved with this asteroid. She is, after all, an armed defender. Righteous, just and true, but defensive about it. So we can look at the placement and aspects of Minerva for some clues about this attribute of who we are and how we react.
Minerva is the Daughter. As Goddess of Wisdom, she is active, creative intelligence that gives birth to thought forms. Here the reproductive energy of Venus is released not through the genitals, but rises like the kundalini serpent to the head where the creative generation of ideas (mental progeny) is born. hence, Minerva represents the principle of creative wisdom.
Her colour is yellow, symbolising the mastery of the intellectual domain, and her mental qualities link her to the element of air.
In the symbolism of the astrological wheel, Minerva corresponds to the Midheaven, where visibly, socially useful accomplishments are realised. Astrologically, Minerva represents one's mental creativity and the capacity to create and control one's reality. When a person becomes clouded by ignorance, Minerva Minerva's cycle takes them through the transformative process of destruction and renewal of their life structures. She teaches the wisdom that the mind's eye contains the seed of manifested form.

****************************************
Minerva is also associated with the arts of healing, health and regeneration. As the Goddess of Victory, first victorious in war and later a victor on the sports field. Minerva signalled victory and as a patron of heroes she was also known as the Goddess of the near, as she was always close to the hero and a staunch supporter of the heroic. As the Goddess of war and defender of her father’s realm Minerva became aligned with the hero as his guide and protector. In mythic portrayals of the hero, Minerva stands behind or beside him as his staunch ally against the monstrous and dark forces. When Minerva appears she encourages us to be heroic and battle the regressive forces of our instinctual nature. It is necessary to reflect on the situation and not react emotionally, detaching enough to formulate a decisive plan of action. On an oracular level the card suggest the need to be the wise warrior and use strategy and cunning. On a divinatory level Minerva suggests the individual may be torn between the head and the heart but Minerva encourages us to be heroic and choose the course that will champion our cause. An enmeshed situation demands reflection, objectivity and disengagement.
Feminine Wisdom: Reflection and meditation develop out of the turmoil of chaos and uncertainty, helping us to become more strategic and deliberate in our actions. Metis is the valued intelligence that guides our instincts and plans strategically and arises into consciousness at exactly the right moment. Minerva discerns and through reflecting on emotionally entangled situations allows consciousness to develop.
****************************************

Minerva shows our ability to recognize patterns, to arrange and re-arrange things.
Minerva in the Signs shows your preferred style for doing these things. Minerva in the Houses shows where you have problem solving ability and pattern recognition ability.

Minerva in the Signs:
Minerva in Aries: Charges right in. If the problem needs a quick, dynamic solution, you're the person to ask. This is a good placement if there is some sort of competition (or better yet, a battle) involved. Aries is an innovator and loves to be on the cutting edge. Albert Einstein had Minerva in Aries in the 10th house.
****************************************
Minerva in Taurus: If the problem is going to take a long time to solve, ask this person to handle it for you. With Minerva in Taurus, the problem solving and pattern recognizing abilities increase if you feed them.
****************************************
Minerva in Gemini: This one can work on two or more problems at a time. In fact, if they don't, they might get bored. There tends to be an especially strong ability to deal with words, to arrange and rearrange them in different patterns.
****************************************
Minerva in Cancer: The pattern recognition and problem solving abilities focus around domestic matters and emotional concerns. This is also a good placement for a therapist to have, or someone in a profession that requires nurturing in some way, such as a nanny. The sign of Cancer also governs hotels and restaurants. If you happen to work in those fields, Minerva in Cancer will be a great help in organizing, arranging, and problem solving.
****************************************
Minerva in Leo: It's SHOWTIME! This tends to be a creative placement and is very good for anyone in the arts. But in any profession, things will be arranged and problems solved in dramatic, attention-getting ways.
****************************************
Minerva in Virgo: Good ability to see tiny (even microscopic) patterns and solve problems to the 10th decimal place. Consequently, this would be a good placement for any profession that requires great attention to detail.
****************************************
Minerva in Libra: Good ability to see patterns in social situations. There also tends to be increased skill in handling social problems, so this is a good placement for a mediator. Libra, in addition, rules beauty and art. If you have Minerva in Libra, you probably (unless there are afflicting aspects) have good artistic taste, as well as an ability to know what accessories match the outfit you're wearing.
****************************************
Minerva in Scorpio: A really good placement for a therapist, detective, spy, or criminal! Scorpio loves to go deep into the underworld and come back with riches. If there is a subtle, secretive way of solving a problem, you will be the one to find it. Minerva in Scorpio can also make you obsessed with finding solutions to problems, or figuring out a secret and obscure pattern. Of course, it is also good at finding the best way to heal and rehabilitate, and is excellent for helping others manage their money and resources. If the rest of the chart agrees, there will also be the potential for changing the values of any group that you belong to, including the society in which you live.
****************************************
Minerva in Sagittarius: Don't bother looking for small patterns. Leave that for the Minerva in Virgo people. You have to get the big picture, see the large-scale patterns, and then teach others about what you've found.
****************************************
Minerva in Capricorn: This placement of Minerva is good for organizing things and making them more efficient. It definitely has a material bent and prefers to work on problems that have to do with practical matters.
****************************************
Minerva in Aquarius: This placement can solve the most difficult problems in ways that are startling and unusual. The patterns that it makes are either insane or touched by genius. If everyone agrees that a particular arrangement is the "right one" or that a certain problem has a well-accepted solution, you can count on the Minerva in Aquarius person to come up with something completely different.
****************************************
Minerva in Pisces: If other chart factors agree, this placement of Minerva can make for a good artist, designer, or any work that requires imagination. The main drawback is that there is a tendency to dream instead of do.
****************************************
Minerva in the Houses:
Minerva in the 1st House: Minerva here gives superior ability to see patterns and solve problems, especially if it is within eight degrees of the Ascendant and in the same sign.
****************************************
Minerva in the 2nd House: This placement is good for organizing money and possessions. It can also give the ability to recognize financial trends. Remember though, that the 2nd house also deals with what we value, and Minerva placed here simply helps to organize and arrange those values, whatever they may be. This includes those who reject money and preach a life of poverty. But I'll bet that the few possessions they have are well organized.
****************************************
Minerva in the 3rd House: This is the house of communications and short journeys. Minerva here makes it easier to solve problems while you are walking around the neighborhood, taking short trips, or communicating. The problems you deal with are more likely to concern immediate, day-to-day matters.
****************************************
Minerva in the 4th House: If you have a difficult problem to figure out, go home. Minerva in the 4th house means that your ability to see patterns and solve problems is greatest when you are in the house. Since the 4th house also shows the last third (or so) of our life, your problem solving abilities will probably become stronger with age.
****************************************
Minerva in the 5th House: This is good for your creativity. Artists with this placement would tend to have a good sense of form. In sports and games, Minerva in the 5th house is good for working out strategy. In matters of gambling and speculation, there will be a tendency to find patterns rather than just blindly rolling the dice. When it comes to children, this placement can make it easier to think up all sorts of new games and activities for them.
****************************************
Minerva in the 6th House: The daily work activity is where the pattern spotting ability comes into play. This can be a good placement for finding new ways to arrange and rearrange things on the job. It also favors jobs that demand the ability to deal with patterns.
****************************************
Minerva in the 7th House: The tendency with Minerva in the 7th house is to attract marriage and business partners who are good at recognizing patterns, solving problems, and arranging things. But it frequently happens that the person with Minerva in the 7th house finds it easier to do these things when there is someone else around. The other person doesn't even have to say a word. Just having another person there will make it easier for a Minerva in the 7th house person to solve problems and see patterns.
****************************************
Minerva in the 8th House: A good placement for those engaged in healing professions, including therapists (the 8th house rules rehabilitation). It is also favorable for those who manage other people's money. The 2nd house rules your values. The 8th house, which is opposite, rules the values of the groups to which you belong. Minerva in the 8th house increases the chance that the patterns you see may change those group values.
****************************************
Minerva in the 9th House: This is the house of higher education and philosophy. You may tend to be more concerned with large-scale problems than day-to-day matters. An excellent placement for a college professor or a diplomat (the 9th house rules long journeys and foreign places).
****************************************
Minerva in the 10th House: This is the house of career and the "public." If you are having trouble solving a problem while at home, get out of the house. Minerva in the 10th house will tend to increase pattern recognition and problem solving abilities in connection with the career. Albert Einstein, who made a career with his ability to see patterns, had Minerva placed here.
****************************************
Minerva in the 11th House: Once again, it becomes easier to solve problems and see patterns if there are other people around. In this case, it's friends. But a group of people would do as well. There could also be a tendency to attract friends who are clever at solving problems.
****************************************
Minerva in the 12th House: The 12th house shows what we may suppress. Someone with Minerva placed here may hold back their own problem solving and pattern recognition abilities. On the other hand, this could indicate increased ability to analyze and handle the restrictions of others. So it is also should be good for those whose work deals with "restrictions," such as therapists and social workers.
****************************************
Minerva in Aspect:
Minerva Aspecting the Sun: This person will tend to be good at problem solving and pattern recognition. If the aspects are harmonious (conjunction, sextile, or trine), these abilities will tend to be easily accepted both by the person themselves and those around them. If the aspects are stressful, then the solutions and patterns they come up may cause a clash with authority figures.
****************************************
Minerva Aspecting the Moon: These folks can be just as good as those with Sun/Minerva aspects at problem solving and pattern recognition. The difference is the process will be more instinctive and less conscious. Stressful aspects (square and opposition) can show a clash between the problem solving abilities and the emotional needs (similar to stressful Moon/Mercury aspects). The harmonious aspects (conjunction, sextile, or trine) tend to have an easier interchange between the intellectual abilities of Minerva and the instincts of the Moon. Albert Einstein, for example had the trine.
****************************************
Minerva Aspecting Mercury: The harmonious aspects (conjunction, sextile, or trine) are excellent for solving problems and communicating the solutions so that they will be accepted. This is an excellent position for anyone who has to work with words for a living (I have the sextile myself). The stressful aspects could indicate difficulties in communicating the results of your problem solving and pattern recognition. The house and sign positions will indicate the areas where this would be the biggest problem.
****************************************
Minerva Aspecting Venus: Another good placement for an artist. The harmonious aspects (conjunction, sextile, or trine) link the Venusian love of beauty with the pattern recognition ability of Minerva. The stressful aspects (square and opposition) could lead to blockages in this area. The pattern recognition ability has problems integrating with the artistic sense. There could also be a tendency to be excessively critical (Minerva) of those with whom we are romantically involved (Venus).
****************************************
Minerva Aspecting Mars: Not bad for a military strategist or the coach of a sports team. If there is a conflict (Mars) this combination can help you figure out (Minerva) how to win. In fact, any task requiring lots of energy, physical activity, or will power can be rearranged and improved with this aspect. The harmonious aspects (conjunction, sextile, or trine) can smoothly integrate physical activity with the intellect. The stressful aspects (square and opposition) can indicate a tendency to rush to judgment when solving problems. These aspects also make it more likely for one to argue when the solutions they come up with are not immediately accepted.
****************************************
Minerva Aspecting Jupiter: With the harmonious aspects (conjunction, sextile, or trine) there is no problem getting the big picture. This increases the ability to recognize big patterns and solve large-scale problems. The stressful aspects (square and opposition) can easily give someone an over-inflated opinion of their own intellect. Many people with a stressful aspect between these two are always right and never wrong. Just ask them!
****************************************
Minerva Aspecting Saturn: The effect of Saturn, like Jupiter, is to focus on the big picture. Saturn though, tends towards pessimism rather than optimism, and caution rather than opportunity. When it comes to problem solving, those with Minerva/Saturn aspects will tend to take their time. Learning is also slowed down because the effect of Saturn is to fear mistakes. Once something is learned, however, it will likely be learned well. The harmonious aspects (sextile and trine) simply add a cautious and practical streak to problem solving and pattern recognition. The stressful aspects (conjunction, square, and opposition) put obstacles in the way. Someone with these may feel stupid (even if they are really brilliant). To develop their problem solving and pattern recognition abilities, they (more than anyone else) have to practice, practice, practice. It also wouldn't hurt if they worked to boost their self-esteem.
****************************************
Minerva Aspecting Uranus: The patterns you see will tend to be unusual and highly original. The solutions to problems will be, well, different. The effect of Uranus is to make us believe that "If everybody does things this way, it must be wrong." If the aspect is a stressful one (conjunction, square, or opposition), the ideas they come up with may shock others. The harmonious aspects (sextile and trine) can be just as original when it comes to problem solving and pattern recognition, but are less likely to cause people to be upset.
****************************************
Minerva Aspecting Neptune: Neptune rules dreams (and illusions). The harmonious aspects (sextile and trine) between Minerva and Neptune increase imagination and are very good for artists. But scientists can benefit from this as well because of the increased powers of visualization that it confers. The stressful aspects (conjunction, square, and opposition) can get lost in imagination. This combination can make it difficult to tell the difference between reality and delusion.
****************************************
Minerva Aspecting Pluto: Those with this combination can notice things that seem hidden to most others. This is a good combination for a doctor, therapist, detective, or spy. The harmonious aspects (sextile and trine) are good for solving problems connected with healing or personal growth, "transformation" in general. They are also good those who deal with large sums of "other people's money" (venture capitalists, for instance). The stressful aspects (conjunction, square, and opposition) tend to cause intense concentration on problems to the point of obsession.
****************************************
Minerva Aspecting the Ascendant: Any aspect will tend to increase the mental side of your nature, particularly the problem solving and pattern recognition abilities. This is especially true of the conjunction aspect. The harmonious aspects (sextile and trine) will, in addition, make it easier to solve problems together with others (there will also be an aspect to the Descendant). The opposition to the Ascendant is really a conjunction to the Descendant, so Minerva placed here could attract partners who are good at problem solving and pattern recognition. Conversely, your own abilities in these areas could come out more strongly when there is someone else around, especially a partner. The square aspect will tend to bring problems when it comes to solving problems with others.
****************************************
Minerva Aspecting the Mid-Heaven: Problem solving and pattern recognition will tend to be an important part of the career. One or both parents were likely to have been strong in these areas. If the aspect is a square, then they might have tried to over-organize your life while raising you.

78 Diana (Roman):

The daughter of Zeus and Leto. Her twin brother is Apollo. She is the lady of the wild things and protector of the young. She became associated with the moon. She is a virgin Goddess, and the Goddess of chastity. She also presides over childbirth, which may seem odd for a virgin, but goes back to causing Leto no pain when she was born. The cypress is her tree. All wild animals are scared to her, especially the deer.

****************************************
Diana (whose name simply means "Goddess") is the Roman Goddess of the wild places who protects women and girls, especially virgins. Like the Greek Artemis, with whom the Romans identified her, she loves forests and the hunt, is the patroness of childbirth, and is associated with the light of the moon. The Romans recognized three aspects of her - as the Moon-Goddess, they called her Luna; as an underworld deity of Magic, Hekate; and as the huntress-Goddess, Diana.
On the shores of Lake Nemi, a famously beautiful lake in a volcanic crater not far from Rome, Diana Nemorensis ("of the Grove") had a temple in a forest on the lake's shores. Her priest at this temple became so by plucking the golden bough (a branch covered with the sacred mistletoe) from the wood and then killing the former priest in single combat. In his turn, however, he too could be slain by another.
In Gaul, she was identified with Nemetona, "Goddess of the Sacred Grove", and considered the consort of Mars. She was also associated with Nemesis, the Greek Goddess of Fate, and in this aspect is shown with an apple bough and cider bowl. Diana's feast day is August 13th.
****************************************
In transit: It indicates a time of transformation, symbolized by the frog She holds. The wild places of the world are calling you, and through their ancient beauty you will be changed.
In synastry: Free-flowing, sensitive sexuality, with a strong need for individual expression and freedom. Making love in sheltered natural places in the open will suit Diana. Initial shyness, so imagination and sensitivity to understand and cater to physical and emotional vulnerabilities will help. Music or words can also be helpful, and ensuring safety.
Attunement to animals and nature; belief in hunter-prey dynamics; feeling “chased;” elusive, hard-to-find or difficult-to-pin-down behaviors and reactions.

16 Psyche (Roman/Greek):

Psyche means soul. In a chart, it can indicate telepathic and clairaudient abilities, and an intuitive understanding of someone’s inner world, or "psyche".

Pallas Athene (Greek):

Rules wisdom and artistic abilities. It helps the Pineal Gland. Wisdom, strategy, knowing what action to take and when. Being a warrior of principles and peace.

****************************************
Keywords:
artistic, arts and crafts, biotechnology, confidence, conflict, creative, daughter, diplomacy, genetics, healing, horses, immune system, injustice, intelligence, intuition, justice, learning, legal battles, logic, politics, science, strategy, strength, wisdom
Wherever Pallas falls in the birthchart shows the area of life where these talents are likely to be found and in what capacity.

****************************************
Pallas Athene (Greek):
The wisdom of reflection and strategy.
Extremely sexual and responsive and sexually caring to partners. Sexual negotiation skills. Sex is deeply transformative and regenerative and can go through certain cycles. Honour and respect is number one here. Sex and lust could take over in spontaneous busy days and nights. Profundity in sex. Sometimes sexual obsession. Both partners need to contribute, as control dampens the enthusiasm.
Athene is the warrior-Goddess, who is making a re-emergence in a number of forms in our culture. Astrologically, she represents political and negotiating skills, having been transformed into a kind of modern lawyer-like warrior.
Defenses and defensiveness can be involved with this asteroid. She is, after all, an armed defender. Righteous, just and true, but defensive about it. So we can look at the placement and aspects of Pallas for some clues about this attribute of who we are and how we react.
Pallas Athene is the Daughter. As Goddess of Wisdom, she is active, creative intelligence that gives birth to thought forms. Here the reproductive energy of Venus is released not through the genitals, but rises like the kundalini serpent to the head where the creative generation of ideas (mental progeny) is born. hence, Pallas Athene represents the principle of creative wisdom.
Her colour is yellow, symbolising the mastery of the intellectual domain, and her mental qualities link her to the element of air.
In the symbolism of the astrological wheel, Pallas Athene corresponds to the Midheaven, where visibly, socially useful accomplishments are realised. Astrologically, Pallas Athene represents one's mental creativity and the capacity to create and control one's reality. When a person becomes clouded by ignorance, Pallas Athene's cycle takes them through the transformative process of destruction and renewal of their life structures. She teaches the wisdom that the mind's eye contains the seed of manifested form.

****************************************
Pallas or Pallas Athena or Pallas Athene, also known as Minerva, is associated with wisdom and intuition. Brought in with these attributes are those of logic and applied strategy. It is also creative of original thought, showing artistic ability. Pallas also rules the relationship between father and daughter. It is also representative of the Warrior Woman and the fight to escape from oppressive male domination. On the negative side, it also rules such things as incest and abuse. It is also concerned with science, the code of genetics and with biotechnology.
Pallas Athena is sympathetic to the air signs especially the justice and strategy of Libra and the intelligence and objectivity of Aquarius. She is aligned with the masculine archetypes of Mars and Uranus and close to Jupiter, her father’s realm.

PALLAS ATHENA: THE WISDOM OF THE WARRIOR
Reflection and Strategy
The architectural masterpiece, the Parthenon, was dedicated to the Goddess whom the classical Athenians cherished. Pallas Athena was their advocate for law and order, the teacher of household arts like spinning, weaving, and cooking, as well as their protector and defender. As their Goddess of war she helped the Greeks defeat Troy, the Athenians repel the Persians; as their Goddess of useful and decorative arts she inspired them to build exceptional monuments and temples. The Goddess of merciful justice transformed the law courts and at the dawn of the fifth century she inspired the democratic shift in Athenian politics. Athena was the revered Goddess of the Athenians who celebrated her birthday each year with a great festival and procession through the Agora up to the Acropolis.
As a multi-tasked Goddess many images are associated with Pallas Athena but it is the owl that reminds us of her wisdom. Her intelligence is ‘bright-eyed’ and sharp, focused on the immediate, located in the present, aligned with the head and not the instinct. Pallas Athena embodies the rational and encourages left-brain thinking. Her wisdom controls the instincts, learning to direct them into heroic pursuits to eradicate what is dark and primitive. She is civilising and organising, bringing culture and cultivation to mankind. Justice and law are part of her new order replacing retaliation and revenge.
Strategic, reflective and controlled her craft and skill is mirrored in the multiplicity of devices she offered man, the fertility of her ideas and the usefulness of her inventions and techniques. As Pronoai she is ‘before knowing’ embracing forethought and strategic thinking. As a warrior queen she was born from the forehead of her father Zeus, fully armoured and mature, suggesting that the wisdom of Goddess had been reborn into a new order. As father’s special daughter Pallas Athena mirrored the rational intelligence and counsel of Zeus. Metis, the mother of Athena, was an ancient Goddess of wisdom known as Wise Counsel or Cunning Intelligence. She knew the feminine mysteries, the intelligence articulated by the heart and the inner world of instinct and intuition. From her Pallas Athena inherited another kind of wisdom: the wisdom of intuitive knowing often experienced in the belly as a ‘gut instinct’. It is a knowing that may speak through symptoms or disease, through creativity or craft, or radiate through stillness and tranquillity or even erupt in anger or hostility. It is a wisdom born out of an intimate connection between mind and matter, a fluid way of being the ancient Greeks knew as sophia.
Athena is a proud daughter born from a power struggle between her powerfully dominant father and her intuitively wise mother. Consciously Athena only knows her father’s way and the new order. Born of man, like Eve, this myth is often cited when tracing the emergence of ‘father-right’ from the long held tradition of ‘mother-right’. The daughter is now aligned with the sky father who colludes in rejecting the earth mother. The tables have turned in the familial pattern and now it is father and daughter colluding against mother, no longer mother conspiring with her youngest son against the father. When Athena emerges she reflects the need for logic and rationality rather than feeling and instinct. Her path follows the reason of the head, aligned with her father, not the impulse of the heart, the vulnerable feminine side that she has not been nurtured by.
Like Eve, Athena’s feminine legacy is not so easily erased. Both their myths contain the image of the snake, a sacred symbol of their legacy of feminine wisdom, healing and regeneration. By the classical period Athena’s wisdom became subjugated to Zeus. Shaped by the masculine wisdom becomes linear, logical and rational. Metis is no longer acknowledged as her other parent. The internal wisdom of cycles, intuitive knowing and the complexity of intrapsychic understanding becomes concealed under Athena’s armour.
Athena is also associated with the arts of healing, health and regeneration. As Athena Nike she was the Goddess of Victory, first victorious in war and later a victor on the sports field. Athena signalled victory and as a patron of heroes she was also known as the Goddess of the near, as she was always close to the hero and a staunch supporter of the heroic. As the Goddess of war and defender of her father’s realm Athena became aligned with the hero as his guide and protector. In mythic portrayals of the hero, Athena stands behind or beside him as his staunch ally against the monstrous and dark forces. When Pallas Athena appears she encourages us to be heroic and battle the regressive forces of our instinctual nature. When we choose Pallas Athena it is necessary to reflect on the situation and not react emotionally, detaching enough to formulate a decisive plan of action. On an oracular level the card suggest the need to be the wise warrior and use strategy and cunning. On a divinatory level the card suggests the individual may be torn between the head and the heart but Pallas encourages us to be heroic and choose the course that will champion our cause. An enmeshed situation demands reflection, objectivity and disengagement.
Feminine Wisdom: Reflection and meditation develop out of the turmoil of chaos and uncertainty, helping us to become more strategic and deliberate in our actions. Metis is the valued intelligence that guides our instincts and plans strategically and arises into consciousness at exactly the right moment. Pallas Athena discerns and through reflecting on emotionally entangled situations allows consciousness to develop.
****************************************

From Bob Marks: Pallas shows our ability to recognize patterns, to arrange and re-arrange things.
Pallas in the Signs shows your preferred style for doing these things. Pallas in the Houses shows where you have problem solving ability and pattern recognition ability.

Pallas in the Signs:
Pallas in Aries: Charges right in. If the problem needs a quick, dynamic solution, you're the person to ask. This is a good placement if there is some sort of competition (or better yet, a battle) involved. Aries is an innovator and loves to be on the cutting edge. Albert Einstein had Pallas in Aries in the 10th house.
****************************************
Pallas in Taurus: If the problem is going to take a long time to solve, ask this person to handle it for you. With Pallas in Taurus, the problem solving and pattern recognizing abilities increase if you feed them.
****************************************
Pallas in Gemini: This one can work on two or more problems at a time. In fact, if they don't, they might get bored. There tends to be an especially strong ability to deal with words, to arrange and rearrange them in different patterns.
****************************************
Pallas in Cancer: The pattern recognition and problem solving abilities focus around domestic matters and emotional concerns. This is also a good placement for a therapist to have, or someone in a profession that requires nurturing in some way, such as a nanny. The sign of Cancer also governs hotels and restaurants. If you happen to work in those fields, Pallas in Cancer will be a great help in organizing, arranging, and problem solving.
****************************************
Pallas in Leo: It's SHOWTIME! This tends to be a creative placement and is very good for anyone in the arts. But in any profession, things will be arranged and problems solved in dramatic, attention-getting ways.
****************************************
Pallas in Virgo: Good ability to see tiny (even microscopic) patterns and solve problems to the 10th decimal place. Consequently, this would be a good placement for any profession that requires great attention to detail.
****************************************
Pallas in Libra: Good ability to see patterns in social situations. There also tends to be increased skill in handling social problems, so this is a good placement for a mediator. Libra, in addition, rules beauty and art. If you have Pallas in Libra, you probably (unless there are afflicting aspects) have good artistic taste, as well as an ability to know what accessories match the outfit you're wearing.
****************************************
Pallas in Scorpio: A really good placement for a therapist, detective, spy, or criminal! Scorpio loves to go deep into the underworld and come back with riches. If there is a subtle, secretive way of solving a problem, you will be the one to find it. Pallas in Scorpio can also make you obsessed with finding solutions to problems, or figuring out a secret and obscure pattern. Of course, it is also good at finding the best way to heal and rehabilitate, and is excellent for helping others manage their money and resources. If the rest of the chart agrees, there will also be the potential for changing the values of any group that you belong to, including the society in which you live.
****************************************
Pallas in Sagittarius: Don't bother looking for small patterns. Leave that for the Pallas in Virgo people. You have to get the big picture, see the large-scale patterns, and then teach others about what you've found.
****************************************
Pallas in Capricorn: This placement of Pallas is good for organizing things and making them more efficient. It definitely has a material bent and prefers to work on problems that have to do with practical matters.
****************************************
Pallas in Aquarius: This placement can solve the most difficult problems in ways that are startling and unusual. The patterns that it makes are either insane or touched by genius. If everyone agrees that a particular arrangement is the "right one" or that a certain problem has a well-accepted solution, you can count on the Pallas in Aquarius person to come up with something completely different.
****************************************
Pallas in Pisces: If other chart factors agree, this placement of Pallas can make for a good artist, designer, or any work that requires imagination. The main drawback is that there is a tendency to dream instead of do.
****************************************
Pallas in the Houses:
Pallas in the 1st House: Pallas here gives superior ability to see patterns and solve problems, especially if it is within eight degrees of the Ascendant and in the same sign.
****************************************
Pallas in the 2nd House: This placement is good for organizing money and possessions. It can also give the ability to recognize financial trends. Remember though, that the 2nd house also deals with what we value, and Pallas placed here simply helps to organize and arrange those values, whatever they may be. This includes those who reject money and preach a life of poverty. But I'll bet that the few possessions they have are well organized.
****************************************
Pallas in the 3rd House: This is the house of communications and short journeys. Pallas here makes it easier to solve problems while you are walking around the neighborhood, taking short trips, or communicating. The problems you deal with are more likely to concern immediate, day-to-day matters.
****************************************
Pallas in the 4th House: If you have a difficult problem to figure out, go home. Pallas in the 4th house means that your ability to see patterns and solve problems is greatest when you are in the house. Since the 4th house also shows the last third (or so) of our life, your problem solving abilities will probably become stronger with age.
****************************************
Pallas in the 5th House: This is good for your creativity. Artists with this placement would tend to have a good sense of form. In sports and games, Pallas in the 5th house is good for working out strategy. In matters of gambling and speculation, there will be a tendency to find patterns rather than just blindly rolling the dice. When it comes to children, this placement can make it easier to think up all sorts of new games and activities for them.
****************************************
Pallas in the 6th House: The daily work activity is where the pattern spotting ability comes into play. This can be a good placement for finding new ways to arrange and rearrange things on the job. It also favors jobs that demand the ability to deal with patterns.
****************************************
Pallas in the 7th House: The tendency with Pallas in the 7th house is to attract marriage and business partners who are good at recognizing patterns, solving problems, and arranging things. But it frequently happens that the person with Pallas in the 7th house finds it easier to do these things when there is someone else around. The other person doesn't even have to say a word. Just having another person there will make it easier for a Pallas in the 7th house person to solve problems and see patterns.
****************************************
Pallas in the 8th House: A good placement for those engaged in healing professions, including therapists (the 8th house rules rehabilitation). It is also favorable for those who manage other people's money. The 2nd house rules your values. The 8th house, which is opposite, rules the values of the groups to which you belong. Pallas in the 8th house increases the chance that the patterns you see may change those group values.
****************************************
Pallas in the 9th House: This is the house of higher education and philosophy. You may tend to be more concerned with large-scale problems than day-to-day matters. An excellent placement for a college professor or a diplomat (the 9th house rules long journeys and foreign places).
****************************************
Pallas in the 10th House: This is the house of career and the "public." If you are having trouble solving a problem while at home, get out of the house. Pallas in the 10th house will tend to increase pattern recognition and problem solving abilities in connection with the career. Albert Einstein, who made a career with his ability to see patterns, had Pallas placed here.
****************************************
Pallas in the 11th House: Once again, it becomes easier to solve problems and see patterns if there are other people around. In this case, it's friends. But a group of people would do as well. There could also be a tendency to attract friends who are clever at solving problems.
****************************************
Pallas in the 12th House: The 12th house shows what we may suppress. Someone with Pallas placed here may hold back their own problem solving and pattern recognition abilities. On the other hand, this could indicate increased ability to analyze and handle the restrictions of others. So it is also should be good for those whose work deals with "restrictions," such as therapists and social workers.
****************************************
Pallas in Aspect:
Pallas Aspecting the Sun: This person will tend to be good at problem solving and pattern recognition. If the aspects are harmonious (conjunction, sextile, or trine), these abilities will tend to be easily accepted both by the person themselves and those around them. If the aspects are stressful, then the solutions and patterns they come up may cause a clash with authority figures.
****************************************
Pallas Aspecting the Moon: These folks can be just as good as those with Sun/Pallas aspects at problem solving and pattern recognition. The difference is the process will be more instinctive and less conscious. Stressful aspects (square and opposition) can show a clash between the problem solving abilities and the emotional needs (similar to stressful Moon/Mercury aspects). The harmonious aspects (conjunction, sextile, or trine) tend to have an easier interchange between the intellectual abilities of Pallas and the instincts of the Moon. Albert Einstein, for example had the trine.
****************************************
Pallas Aspecting Mercury: The harmonious aspects (conjunction, sextile, or trine) are excellent for solving problems and communicating the solutions so that they will be accepted. This is an excellent position for anyone who has to work with words for a living (I have the sextile myself). The stressful aspects could indicate difficulties in communicating the results of your problem solving and pattern recognition. The house and sign positions will indicate the areas where this would be the biggest problem.
****************************************
Pallas Aspecting Venus: Another good placement for an artist. The harmonious aspects (conjunction, sextile, or trine) link the Venusian love of beauty with the pattern recognition ability of Pallas. The stressful aspects (square and opposition) could lead to blockages in this area. The pattern recognition ability has problems integrating with the artistic sense. There could also be a tendency to be excessively critical (Pallas) of those with whom we are romantically involved (Venus).
****************************************
Pallas Aspecting Mars: Not bad for a military strategist or the coach of a sports team. If there is a conflict (Mars) this combination can help you figure out (Pallas) how to win. In fact, any task requiring lots of energy, physical activity, or will power can be rearranged and improved with this aspect. The harmonious aspects (conjunction, sextile, or trine) can smoothly integrate physical activity with the intellect. The stressful aspects (square and opposition) can indicate a tendency to rush to judgment when solving problems. These aspects also make it more likely for one to argue when the solutions they come up with are not immediately accepted.
****************************************
Pallas Aspecting Jupiter: With the harmonious aspects (conjunction, sextile, or trine) there is no problem getting the big picture. This increases the ability to recognize big patterns and solve large-scale problems. The stressful aspects (square and opposition) can easily give someone an over-inflated opinion of their own intellect. Many people with a stressful aspect between these two are always right and never wrong. Just ask them!
****************************************
Pallas Aspecting Saturn: The effect of Saturn, like Jupiter, is to focus on the big picture. Saturn though, tends towards pessimism rather than optimism, and caution rather than opportunity. When it comes to problem solving, those with Pallas/Saturn aspects will tend to take their time. Learning is also slowed down because the effect of Saturn is to fear mistakes. Once something is learned, however, it will likely be learned well. The harmonious aspects (sextile and trine) simply add a cautious and practical streak to problem solving and pattern recognition. The stressful aspects (conjunction, square, and opposition) put obstacles in the way. Someone with these may feel stupid (even if they are really brilliant). To develop their problem solving and pattern recognition abilities, they (more than anyone else) have to practice, practice, practice. It also wouldn't hurt if they worked to boost their self-esteem.
****************************************
Pallas Aspecting Uranus: The patterns you see will tend to be unusual and highly original. The solutions to problems will be, well, different. The effect of Uranus is to make us believe that "If everybody does things this way, it must be wrong." If the aspect is a stressful one (conjunction, square, or opposition), the ideas they come up with may shock others. The harmonious aspects (sextile and trine) can be just as original when it comes to problem solving and pattern recognition, but are less likely to cause people to be upset.
****************************************
Pallas Aspecting Neptune: Neptune rules dreams (and illusions). The harmonious aspects (sextile and trine) between Pallas and Neptune increase imagination and are very good for artists. But scientists can benefit from this as well because of the increased powers of visualization that it confers. The stressful aspects (conjunction, square, and opposition) can get lost in imagination. This combination can make it difficult to tell the difference between reality and delusion.
****************************************
Pallas Aspecting Pluto: Those with this combination can notice things that seem hidden to most others. This is a good combination for a doctor, therapist, detective, or spy. The harmonious aspects (sextile and trine) are good for solving problems connected with healing or personal growth, "transformation" in general. They are also good those who deal with large sums of "other people's money" (venture capitalists, for instance). The stressful aspects (conjunction, square, and opposition) tend to cause intense concentration on problems to the point of obsession.
****************************************
Pallas Aspecting the Ascendant: Any aspect will tend to increase the mental side of your nature, particularly the problem solving and pattern recognition abilities. This is especially true of the conjunction aspect. The harmonious aspects (sextile and trine) will, in addition, make it easier to solve problems together with others (there will also be an aspect to the Descendant). The opposition to the Ascendant is really a conjunction to the Descendant, so Pallas placed here could attract partners who are good at problem solving and pattern recognition. Conversely, your own abilities in these areas could come out more strongly when there is someone else around, especially a partner. The square aspect will tend to bring problems when it comes to solving problems with others.
****************************************
Pallas Aspecting the Mid-Heaven: Problem solving and pattern recognition will tend to be an important part of the career. One or both parents were likely to have been strong in these areas. If the aspect is a square, then they might have tried to over-organize your life while raising you.

Wherever Athene falls in the birthchart shows the area of life where these talents are likely to be found and in what capacity.

****************************************
Goddess of war and peace, wisdom and ethics, arts and crafts. Athene was the state Goddess of Athens. She is an inventor and artisan, the Goddess of order and bringer of civilization. Though a war Goddess, She participates only to defend right order and to bring justice. Her clear thinking and quick mind have brought many benefits to mankind, including the olive and its precious oil. According to legend, She contested with Poseidon for the control of Athens. Poseidon struck a rock on the Akropolis with His trident, and a spring of salty water flowed forth. Athene's gift was the olive tree, and in the temple of the Erechtheum on the Akropolis both the trident-mark and the tree are there to this day.
Athene was probably originally a Goddess of lightning and storms, hence the spear (representing the lightning) and Her famous brilliant eyes, which earned Her the epithet Oxyderkes, the Bright-Eyed. Birds as creatures of the air are Hers as well, especially the owl, with its bright eyes and reputation for wisdom.
Athene brings strength and wisdom, and aid in determining the best course--consult Her in a situation when you are not sure whether to use diplomacy or if the time has come to fight.
Some of Her epithets include: Polias ("of the City"), Parthenos ("Virgin"), Promachos ("Champion"), Ergane ("Worker"), and Nike ("Victory").
****************************************
ATHENE (or Athena) was the great Olympian Goddess of wise counsel, war, the defence of towns, heroic endeavour, weaving, pottery and other crafts. She was depicted crowned with a crested helm, armed with shield and spear, and wearing the snake-trimmed aigis cloak wrapped around her breast and arm, adorned with the monstrous head of the Gorgon.
****************************************
Athena was the ultimate career woman. As Goddess of war, Athena was a superb warrior; her presence on your side assured a bit win. The Goddess Minerva was her counterpart in Roman mythology.
The Goddess Athena was a superb strategist and many of the Greek myths recount tales of her help given to various Gods, Goddesses, and heroes as they went into battle or faced seemingly impossible tests. But the Goddess Athena liked using her wisdom in the role of judge, much preferring to negotiate and problem-solve to keep the peace.
She was also known as Athena Goddess of Crafts". The Goddess Athena was celebrated as the patron of weavers, potters, goldsmiths, sculptors, musicians, and horsemen. She was also credited with the inventing the first sailing ship, the yoke and the bridle, as well as the flute and trumpet.
Associated with the city and an urbane lifestyle, during peacetime the Greek Goddess Athena utilized her talents overseeing the progress of civilization, including being the patroness of literature and the arts.
The myths of Athena remind us that thoughtful planning and the marshalling of our resources can help us reach our goals.
****************************************
The wisdom of reflection and strategy.
Extremely sexual and responsive and sexually caring to partners. Sexual negotiation skills. Sex is deeply transformative and regenerative and can go through certain cycles. Honour and respect is number one here. Sex and lust could take over in spontaneous busy days and nights. Profundity in sex. Sometimes sexual obsession.

She knew the feminine mysteries, the intelligence articulated by the heart and the inner world of instinct and intuition. From her Athene inherited another kind of wisdom: the wisdom of intuitive knowing often experienced in the belly as a ‘gut instinct’. It is a knowing that may speak through symptoms or disease, through creativity or craft, or radiate through stillness and tranquillity or even erupt in anger or hostility. It is a wisdom born out of an intimate connection between mind and matter, a fluid way of being the ancient Greeks knew as sophia.
Athene is a proud daughter born from a power struggle between her powerfully dominant father and her intuitively wise mother. Consciously Athene only knows her father’s way and the new order. Born of man, like Eve, this myth is often cited when tracing the emergence of ‘father-right’ from the long held tradition of ‘mother-right’. The daughter is now aligned with the sky father who colludes in rejecting the earth mother. The tables have turned in the familial pattern and now it is father and daughter colluding against mother, no longer mother conspiring with her youngest son against the father. When Athene emerges she reflects the need for logic and rationality rather than feeling and instinct. Her path follows the reason of the head, aligned with her father, not the impulse of the heart, the vulnerable feminine side that she has not been nurtured by.
Like Eve, Athene’s feminine legacy is not so easily erased. Both their myths contain the image of the snake, a sacred symbol of their legacy of feminine wisdom, healing and regeneration. By the classical period Athene’s wisdom became subjugated to Zeus. Shaped by the masculine wisdom becomes linear, logical and rational. Metis is no longer acknowledged as her other parent. The internal wisdom of cycles, intuitive knowing and the complexity of intrapsychic understanding becomes concealed under Athene’s armour.
Athene is also associated with the arts of healing, health and regeneration. As Athene Nike she was the Goddess of Victory, first victorious in war and later a victor on the sports field. Athene signalled victory and as a patron of heroes she was also known as the Goddess of the near, as she was always close to the hero and a staunch supporter of the heroic. As the Goddess of war and defender of her father’s realm Athene became aligned with the hero as his guide and protector. In mythic portrayals of the hero, Athene stands behind or beside him as his staunch ally against the monstrous and dark forces. When Athene appears she encourages us to be heroic and battle the regressive forces of our instinctual nature. When we choose Athene it is necessary to reflect on the situation and not react emotionally, detaching enough to formulate a decisive plan of action. On an oracular level the card suggest the need to be the wise warrior and use strategy and cunning. On a divinatory level the card suggests the individual may be torn between the head and the heart but Athene encourages us to be heroic and choose the course that will champion our cause. An enmeshed situation demands reflection, objectivity and disengagement.
Feminine Wisdom: Reflection and meditation develop out of the turmoil of chaos and uncertainty, helping us to become more strategic and deliberate in our actions. Metis is the valued intelligence that guides our instincts and plans strategically and arises into consciousness at exactly the right moment. Athene discerns and through reflecting on emotionally entangled situations allows consciousness to develop.
****************************************
Athene shows our ability to recognize patterns, to arrange and re-arrange things.
Athene in the Signs shows your preferred style for doing these things. Athene in the Houses shows where you have problem solving ability and pattern recognition ability.

Athene in the Signs:
Athene in Aries: Charges right in. If the problem needs a quick, dynamic solution, you're the person to ask. This is a good placement if there is some sort of competition (or better yet, a battle) involved. Aries is an innovator and loves to be on the cutting edge. Albert Einstein had Athene in Aries in the 10th house.
****************************************
Athene in Taurus: If the problem is going to take a long time to solve, ask this person to handle it for you. With Athene in Taurus, the problem solving and pattern recognizing abilities increase if you feed them.
****************************************
Athene in Gemini: This one can work on two or more problems at a time. In fact, if they don't, they might get bored. There tends to be an especially strong ability to deal with words, to arrange and rearrange them in different patterns.
****************************************
Athene in Cancer: The pattern recognition and problem solving abilities focus around domestic matters and emotional concerns. This is also a good placement for a therapist to have, or someone in a profession that requires nurturing in some way, such as a nanny. The sign of Cancer also governs hotels and restaurants. If you happen to work in those fields, Athene in Cancer will be a great help in organizing, arranging, and problem solving.
****************************************
Athene in Leo: It's SHOWTIME! This tends to be a creative placement and is very good for anyone in the arts. But in any profession, things will be arranged and problems solved in dramatic, attention-getting ways.
****************************************
Athene in Virgo: Good ability to see tiny (even microscopic) patterns and solve problems to the 10th decimal place. Consequently, this would be a good placement for any profession that requires great attention to detail.
****************************************
Athene in Libra: Good ability to see patterns in social situations. There also tends to be increased skill in handling social problems, so this is a good placement for a mediator. Libra, in addition, rules beauty and art. If you have Athene in Libra, you probably (unless there are afflicting aspects) have good artistic taste, as well as an ability to know what accessories match the outfit you're wearing.
****************************************
Athene in Scorpio: A really good placement for a therapist, detective, spy, or criminal! Scorpio loves to go deep into the underworld and come back with riches. If there is a subtle, secretive way of solving a problem, you will be the one to find it. Athene in Scorpio can also make you obsessed with finding solutions to problems, or figuring out a secret and obscure pattern. Of course, it is also good at finding the best way to heal and rehabilitate, and is excellent for helping others manage their money and resources. If the rest of the chart agrees, there will also be the potential for changing the values of any group that you belong to, including the society in which you live.
****************************************
Athene in Sagittarius: Don't bother looking for small patterns. Leave that for the Athene in Virgo people. You have to get the big picture, see the large-scale patterns, and then teach others about what you've found.
****************************************
Athene in Capricorn: This placement of Athene is good for organizing things and making them more efficient. It definitely has a material bent and prefers to work on problems that have to do with practical matters.
****************************************
Athene in Aquarius: This placement can solve the most difficult problems in ways that are startling and unusual. The patterns that it makes are either insane or touched by genius. If everyone agrees that a particular arrangement is the "right one" or that a certain problem has a well-accepted solution, you can count on the Athene in Aquarius person to come up with something completely different.
****************************************
Athene in Pisces: If other chart factors agree, this placement of Athene can make for a good artist, designer, or any work that requires imagination. The main drawback is that there is a tendency to dream instead of do.
****************************************
Athene in the Houses:
Athene in the 1st House: Athene here gives superior ability to see patterns and solve problems, especially if it is within eight degrees of the Ascendant and in the same sign.
****************************************
Athene in the 2nd House: This placement is good for organizing money and possessions. It can also give the ability to recognize financial trends. Remember though, that the 2nd house also deals with what we value, and Athene placed here simply helps to organize and arrange those values, whatever they may be. This includes those who reject money and preach a life of poverty. But I'll bet that the few possessions they have are well organized.
****************************************
Athene in the 3rd House: This is the house of communications and short journeys. Athene here makes it easier to solve problems while you are walking around the neighborhood, taking short trips, or communicating. The problems you deal with are more likely to concern immediate, day-to-day matters.
****************************************
Athene in the 4th House: If you have a difficult problem to figure out, go home. Athene in the 4th house means that your ability to see patterns and solve problems is greatest when you are in the house. Since the 4th house also shows the last third (or so) of our life, your problem solving abilities will probably become stronger with age.
****************************************
Athene in the 5th House: This is good for your creativity. Artists with this placement would tend to have a good sense of form. In sports and games, Athene in the 5th house is good for working out strategy. In matters of gambling and speculation, there will be a tendency to find patterns rather than just blindly rolling the dice. When it comes to children, this placement can make it easier to think up all sorts of new games and activities for them.
****************************************
Athene in the 6th House: The daily work activity is where the pattern spotting ability comes into play. This can be a good placement for finding new ways to arrange and rearrange things on the job. It also favors jobs that demand the ability to deal with patterns.
****************************************
Athene in the 7th House: The tendency with Athene in the 7th house is to attract marriage and business partners who are good at recognizing patterns, solving problems, and arranging things. But it frequently happens that the person with Athene in the 7th house finds it easier to do these things when there is someone else around. The other person doesn't even have to say a word. Just having another person there will make it easier for a Athene in the 7th house person to solve problems and see patterns.
****************************************
Athene in the 8th House: A good placement for those engaged in healing professions, including therapists (the 8th house rules rehabilitation). It is also favorable for those who manage other people's money. The 2nd house rules your values. The 8th house, which is opposite, rules the values of the groups to which you belong. Athene in the 8th house increases the chance that the patterns you see may change those group values.
****************************************
Athene in the 9th House: This is the house of higher education and philosophy. You may tend to be more concerned with large-scale problems than day-to-day matters. An excellent placement for a college professor or a diplomat (the 9th house rules long journeys and foreign places).
****************************************
Athene in the 10th House: This is the house of career and the "public." If you are having trouble solving a problem while at home, get out of the house. Athene in the 10th house will tend to increase pattern recognition and problem solving abilities in connection with the career. Albert Einstein, who made a career with his ability to see patterns, had Athene placed here.
****************************************
Athene in the 11th House: Once again, it becomes easier to solve problems and see patterns if there are other people around. In this case, it's friends. But a group of people would do as well. There could also be a tendency to attract friends who are clever at solving problems.
****************************************
Athene in the 12th House: The 12th house shows what we may suppress. Someone with Athene placed here may hold back their own problem solving and pattern recognition abilities. On the other hand, this could indicate increased ability to analyze and handle the restrictions of others. So it is also should be good for those whose work deals with "restrictions," such as therapists and social workers.
****************************************
Athene in Aspect:
Athene Aspecting the Sun: This person will tend to be good at problem solving and pattern recognition. If the aspects are harmonious (conjunction, sextile, or trine), these abilities will tend to be easily accepted both by the person themselves and those around them. If the aspects are stressful, then the solutions and patterns they come up may cause a clash with authority figures.
****************************************
Athene Aspecting the Moon: These folks can be just as good as those with Sun/Athene aspects at problem solving and pattern recognition. The difference is the process will be more instinctive and less conscious. Stressful aspects (square and opposition) can show a clash between the problem solving abilities and the emotional needs (similar to stressful Moon/Mercury aspects). The harmonious aspects (conjunction, sextile, or trine) tend to have an easier interchange between the intellectual abilities of Athene and the instincts of the Moon. Albert Einstein, for example had the trine.
****************************************
Athene Aspecting Mercury: The harmonious aspects (conjunction, sextile, or trine) are excellent for solving problems and communicating the solutions so that they will be accepted. This is an excellent position for anyone who has to work with words for a living (I have the sextile myself). The stressful aspects could indicate difficulties in communicating the results of your problem solving and pattern recognition. The house and sign positions will indicate the areas where this would be the biggest problem.
****************************************
Athene Aspecting Venus: Another good placement for an artist. The harmonious aspects (conjunction, sextile, or trine) link the Venusian love of beauty with the pattern recognition ability of Athene. The stressful aspects (square and opposition) could lead to blockages in this area. The pattern recognition ability has problems integrating with the artistic sense. There could also be a tendency to be excessively critical (Athene) of those with whom we are romantically involved (Venus).
****************************************
Athene Aspecting Mars: Not bad for a military strategist or the coach of a sports team. If there is a conflict (Mars) this combination can help you figure out (Athene) how to win. In fact, any task requiring lots of energy, physical activity, or will power can be rearranged and improved with this aspect. The harmonious aspects (conjunction, sextile, or trine) can smoothly integrate physical activity with the intellect. The stressful aspects (square and opposition) can indicate a tendency to rush to judgment when solving problems. These aspects also make it more likely for one to argue when the solutions they come up with are not immediately accepted.
****************************************
Athene Aspecting Jupiter: With the harmonious aspects (conjunction, sextile, or trine) there is no problem getting the big picture. This increases the ability to recognize big patterns and solve large-scale problems. The stressful aspects (square and opposition) can easily give someone an over-inflated opinion of their own intellect. Many people with a stressful aspect between these two are always right and never wrong. Just ask them!
****************************************
Athene Aspecting Saturn: The effect of Saturn, like Jupiter, is to focus on the big picture. Saturn though, tends towards pessimism rather than optimism, and caution rather than opportunity. When it comes to problem solving, those with Athene/Saturn aspects will tend to take their time. Learning is also slowed down because the effect of Saturn is to fear mistakes. Once something is learned, however, it will likely be learned well. The harmonious aspects (sextile and trine) simply add a cautious and practical streak to problem solving and pattern recognition. The stressful aspects (conjunction, square, and opposition) put obstacles in the way. Someone with these may feel stupid (even if they are really brilliant). To develop their problem solving and pattern recognition abilities, they (more than anyone else) have to practice, practice, practice. It also wouldn't hurt if they worked to boost their self-esteem.
****************************************
Athene Aspecting Uranus: The patterns you see will tend to be unusual and highly original. The solutions to problems will be, well, different. The effect of Uranus is to make us believe that "If everybody does things this way, it must be wrong." If the aspect is a stressful one (conjunction, square, or opposition), the ideas they come up with may shock others. The harmonious aspects (sextile and trine) can be just as original when it comes to problem solving and pattern recognition, but are less likely to cause people to be upset.
****************************************
Athene Aspecting Neptune: Neptune rules dreams (and illusions). The harmonious aspects (sextile and trine) between Athene and Neptune increase imagination and are very good for artists. But scientists can benefit from this as well because of the increased powers of visualization that it confers. The stressful aspects (conjunction, square, and opposition) can get lost in imagination. This combination can make it difficult to tell the difference between reality and delusion.
****************************************
Athene Aspecting Pluto: Those with this combination can notice things that seem hidden to most others. This is a good combination for a doctor, therapist, detective, or spy. The harmonious aspects (sextile and trine) are good for solving problems connected with healing or personal growth, "transformation" in general. They are also good those who deal with large sums of "other people's money" (venture capitalists, for instance). The stressful aspects (conjunction, square, and opposition) tend to cause intense concentration on problems to the point of obsession.
****************************************
Athene Aspecting the Ascendant: Any aspect will tend to increase the mental side of your nature, particularly the problem solving and pattern recognition abilities. This is especially true of the conjunction aspect. The harmonious aspects (sextile and trine) will, in addition, make it easier to solve problems together with others (there will also be an aspect to the Descendant). The opposition to the Ascendant is really a conjunction to the Descendant, so Athene placed here could attract partners who are good at problem solving and pattern recognition. Conversely, your own abilities in these areas could come out more strongly when there is someone else around, especially a partner. The square aspect will tend to bring problems when it comes to solving problems with others.
****************************************
Athene Aspecting the Mid-Heaven: Problem solving and pattern recognition will tend to be an important part of the career. One or both parents were likely to have been strong in these areas. If the aspect is a square, then they might have tried to over-organize your life while raising you.

432 Pythia (Greek):
The Pythia was the priestess at Apollo's oracle in Delphi. The name comes from Python, the dragon that was slain by Apollo. The Pythia operated as a vehicle for Apollo's will to be known to those on earth. A believer would make a sacrifice and present a question to a male priest. The male priest would then present the question to the Pythia. The Pythia sat on a bronze tripod in the adytum, or inner chamber of Apollo's temple. In this sacred chamber the spirit of Apollo overcame the Pythia and inspired the prophecy. Some mythic traditions say the Pythia's trance was induced by vapors from a chasm below the temple or from chewing laurel leaves. Continuing his role of a middleman, the priest would interpret the Pythia's response for the questioner.
****************************************
The Delphic Oracle By Eloise Hart
The Oracle of Apollo at Delphi was one of the world's most intriguing and unusual establishments. Within that ancient temple-sanctuary located beneath the "Shining Rocks" of Mount Parnassus, the God Apollo spoke through a Pythia, or human priestess, and offered inspiration and guidance to all who sought his aid. For over a thousand years, before and after the time of Christ, the great and less great came to consult him. Pythagoras went there, and stayed to train a Pythia to serve as voice of the God. Herodotus also went there to record what was said. Plutarch served as priest of Apollo for many years. The great lawgivers Lykurgos and Solon obtained suggestions for laws which made their city-states models of justice and freedom. Oedipus, King of Thebes, consulted the Pythia and so did Alexander the Great. Croesus, King of Lydia, sent envoys as did innumerable others of the Greek, Roman, and Christian world. Today tourists travel regularly to Delphi even though the God is silent and few believe, as the ancients did, that divinities communicate with mortals. Yet, in examining the procedures and responses of this most respected of oracles, one wonders if we are wise to close our minds to the possibility of there once having been this form of divine assistance.
Legends tell us that Delphi and its environs had long possessed a mystic power. Diodoros Siculus, Greek historian of the 1st century B.C., for example, wrote -- whether as fact or fiction we cannot be sure -- that a herdsman, following his goats into a rugged glen suddenly became wondrously inspired and saw the future before him. His goats also were affected, gamboling about and bleating oddly. Others even now mention feeling "something" uplifting; and Plutarch, when officiating at the temple at Delphi, explained that "not often nor regularly, but occasionally and fortuitously, the room in which they seat the God's consultants is filled with a fragrance and breeze (pneumatos) as if the adyton were sending forth the essences of the sweetest and most expensive perfumes" (Moralia, 437c).
The area of Delphi originally was called Pytho and belonged to Gaia, Goddess of Earth. She and her daughter, Themis, are believed to have spoken oracles ages ago. In the Odyssey, Homer (c. 800 B.C.) has Agamemnon consult the deity there about his prospects in a war against Troy. Earlier, or later than this -- legends are vague about time sequences -- Apollo is said to have journeyed south from the Hyperborean "Land of Truth and Virtue," and arriving at Pytho (Delphi) he slew the great python-dragon that guarded the site and thereon established a sanctuary. This, in the language of myth, suggests that Apollo, a semidivine teacher using the name of the God, revitalized the old and declining serpent- or wisdom-mysteries at Delphi. As representative of Zeus, he offered advice on personal, civil, and sacred matters through Pythias or priestess-prophetesses -- advice that was highly esteemed by the many who visited the Apolline centers, whether at Delphi, at Klaros and Grynia, at Thebes in Boeotia, or elsewhere.
Archaeological findings indicate that the first sanctuary of Apollo at Delphi was erected in the 8th century B.C. This may have been the fabled "first three temples of baywood, beeswax and feathers, and bronze" which were destroyed by fire and rebuilt of stone. The crumbling columns and statues one sees there today are apparently the ruins of temples, treasuries, and theater built during the 4th century B.C. However, centuries earlier, Delphi had become a well-established oracular center whose dignity of procedure, and wisdom of pronouncement drew multitudes. Its prestige continued during the entire golden era of Hellenic culture. This was a time when there flourished a galaxy of enlightened men and women whose lives and achievements in the fields of the arts and sciences have become ideals of human endeavor. Solon and Thales lived then, as did Pindar, Aeschylus, Aristophanes, and Euripides, Pericles, Herodotus, Demosthenes, Phidias, Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle. But these wonder-days declined and with them the flow of Apollo's inspiration. His oracles functioned less often and finally, by the 4th century A.D., when the Roman emperor Theodosius ordered all oracles closed and forbade divination, the God had already withdrawn. When the emperor Julian asked how he could help restore the Pythia to power, Apollo replied: "Tell the emperor that my hall has fallen to the ground. Phoibos [Apollo] no longer has his house . . . nor his prophetic spring; the water has dried up" (Fontenrose, p. 353). Earlier, when Emperor Augustus had asked: "Why is the Oracle silent?" he was told: "A Hebrew boy, a God who rules among the blessed bids me leave this house . . . So go in silence from my altars" (op. cit., p. 349).
What has been recorded of the procedure followed at these oracular centers is fragmentary, possibly because it was so well known no one felt the need to describe it. Centuries later reliable writers culled what they could, while others filled in details from imagination. All agree, however, that young girls were selected and carefully trained so that they could transmit the high inspiration of the God without in any way marring its purity and meaning. Later it was found prudent to use married women -- who were required to live apart from their husbands before and during their oracular duties. In fact, even those who consulted the Pythia were expected to practice chastity, and also to undergo purification, offer sacrifice, approach the holy precincts with reverence and trust and, when waiting in the vestibule, to remain silent, thinking pure thoughts.
The Pythias, keenly aware of the sanctity of their responsibility, endeavored to live accordingly. They purified themselves in various ways, such as drinking from the crystal waters of the Castalian spring, and wearing simple garments as shown in vase-paintings on Greek pottery. On the days of consultation the prophetess burned bay leaves and barley meal on the altar and mounted the "high seat," as the tall tripod was called. Once seated and attended by a priest, she waited for the divine afflatus or "breath" to infill her. When she was ready, inquirers were escorted into her presence one at a time. They either asked their questions orally or in writing. She answered them "directly and clearly." Accounts of these sessions mention that "the enquirer spoke directly to the Pythia (or to the God) and that then the Pythia (or the God) responded directly to him," unless the consultant had been sent by someone not present. In such case the response was copied by the priest who sealed it in an envelope, and gave it to the envoy to deliver to the consultant (op. cit., p. 217). When the sessions were finished the Pythia departed, feeling, as Plutarch says, "peaceful and composed."
It is well when examining the God's pronouncements to bear in mind that what has come down to us may or may not be authentic, or carry high inspiration. Some messages undoubtedly were so lofty and private they were treasured in silence, others have suffered through translation and interpretation, and a few may be pure fiction composed long after Delphi had ceased to function. Thus, like the original recipients, we would be wise to test each statement against our inner judgment.
A general procedure was followed: first, the Pythia announced that Apollo himself was the speaker and therefore the message should be heeded. Then she, as the God, expressed concern for the consultant, e.g., "Happy is this man who enters my house. . . ." Next, she answered the query proposed, and finally gave a message that challenged the recipient's judgment and intuition. As Herakleitos declared: "Nowhere or ever did the God of Delphi either reveal or conceal. He indicates only" (Fragment 93).
An example of this type of pronouncement is that received by a Scythian prince who had asked how he would die and was told that a mus (mouse) would cause his death. Forewarned, the prince not only had his houses cleared of mice but refused anyone named Mus to approach him. He died from an infected muscle in his arm, having overlooked the fact that the Greek word for muscle is also mus.
The majority of questions asked of Apollo concerned personal affairs, though some, from statesmen, sought guidance as to what laws or reforms would benefit their state, or sanction to build a temple, found a city, establish a colony, declare war, or make peace. On occasion the oracle found it necessary to deflate an ego as, for instance, when a wealthy magistrate, after sending Delphi a sizable offering, asked: "Pray tell me, who is the most pious man alive?" Apollo told him it was a peasant who had offered a handful of barley.
The earliest oracles are believed to have been given some time between the 9th and 7th centuries B.C. to the Spartan king Lykurgos who on two or three occasions sought advice on how best to govern his unruly subjects. The responses he received enabled him to establish a constitutional government whose benefits were unique in the history of the Greek city-states. We quote from Diodorus Siculus two examples of quasi-historical responses (Fontenrose, pp. 270, 272):
Q7 [Request for good order.]
R. You, Lykurgos, dear to Zeus and all the Gods, enter my temple. I don't know whether to call you God or man, but I rather think God. [You have come in quest of good order. I shall give you an order such as no other city has (Diodoros)].
Q9 What shall the rulers do to rule well and the citizens to obey?
R. There are two ways opposite to each other, one leading to the house of freedom, the other to the house of slavery. Lead the people on the road that goes through courage and harmony; avoid that which leads through strife and ruin.
Thus encouraged, Lykurgos established a council of Elders or Senate, and an Assembly, and when the new constitutional order was functioning smoothly he instituted further reforms sanctioned by Delphi. He was, in fact, so successful in bringing divine law within human reach, that after his death his countrymen built a temple in which they and future generations could pay tribute to this man who in character and wisdom was equal to a God.
The best known Delphic injunction was carved into the lintel at the Temple of Apollo: GNOTHI SEAUTON, Know Thyself. These words may have originated in Apollo's response to a question Chilon of Sparta asked: "What is best for man?" The reply, "Know thyself," is similar to the one believed to have been given to the Lydian king, Croesus, when he was told that he must know himself if he would live most happily. Croesus, a man of action and not philosophical, took this to mean that he should know his own strength, know what he wanted, and should rely on his own judgment. Others have found deeper meaning in these words, taking the "self" to mean the higher self, the true Self; to imply that as man is the microcosm of the macrocosm, he who knows himself knows all.
Many who consulted the oracle missed the God's meaning. Still, Apollo gave help through inspiration and the gentle guidance of ideas, without coercion or any interference in an individual's free will. Nor was there ever any appeal to egoism.
Philosophical responses are recorded:
Q. -- Does the soul survive death or does it vanish?
R. -- While the soul is bound to the body, it yields to mortal ills.
But when it finds release at the body's death, it goes entirely to the sky, always ageless, and remains forever whole. For this is the ordinance of divine providence (Fontenrose, p. 428).
And when asked how men can become good, and Godlike, Apollo said: "By acting rightly like the Gods, and telling the truth" (Davis, p. 26).
These responses give an idea of the quality of guidance offered at Delphi, and they dispel the erroneous idea that has somehow arisen that the prophetess was in any way intoxicated or in a mediumistic trance. H. W. Parke denies such ideas unequivocally in his A History of The Delphic Oracle (pp. 21-2), saying: "Geologically it is quite impossible at Delphi where the limestone and schist could not have emitted a gas with any intoxicating properties." Nor did any ancient writer mention such fumes. The idea that the Pythia was intoxicated or that she entered a cavern evidently came from the Romans who, when they rose in power, applied to Delphi the features they were familiar with both in the cave-sanctuary of Klaros and the grotto at Cumae. Later writers, unfamiliar with the geological and procedural differences, picked up this explanation and in some cases romanticized it.
Another misconception is that the Pythia's messages were ambiguous and incoherent. Joseph Fontenrose (pp. 223-4) carefully examined the genuine responses and found them unusually clear and direct. What ambiguity he found may have been put there, he believes, by the poets who at one time attended the sessions and wrote the responses in hexameter verse. They, not the Pythia, added the metaphors, riddles, and pompous phrasing. When their services were discontinued, the responses came through again as clear and understandable as originally.
Plutarch, an initiate and careful biographer, explained how the Pythia transmitted the inspiration of Apollo:
the prophetic priestesses are moved [by the God] each in accordance with her natural faculties . . . As a matter of fact, the voice is not that of a God, nor the utterance of it, nor the diction, nor the metre, but all these are the woman's; he [Apollo] puts into her mind only the visions, and creates a light in her soul in regard to the future; for inspiration is precisely this. -- Moralia, "The Oracles at Delphi," V, 397d
Plutarch also rejected the idea that the God in any way possessed the body of the prophetess or that there was mediumship involved. For him the Pythia's inspiration was her reception of divine force, for she had been trained to receive "the inspiration without harm to herself " (op. cit., 438c), and could receive it safely only when she was rightly prepared. An example is often cited of an ill-prepared priestess who was forced against her will and better judgment to enter the adyton and respond to a questioner. She gave a response, but suffered acutely, collapsed, and died a few days later.
The idea that the Pythia was in a trance condition may have come from a misunderstanding of how the Greek words mania and pneuma were used in connection with oracles. While today the term mania refers to various forms of hysteria and insanity, to the ancient Greeks it meant ardor, rapture, enthusiasm, i.e., being infilled with a God. The word pneuma was used for "air," "vapor" and, philosophically, for "soul" and "spirit." When the Pythia mounted the tripod she received, according to Strabo, the pneuma, the divine "breath" or afflatus, a word defined as a divine imparting of knowledge and power and of inspiration, meaning in this case the divine wisdom or breath of Apollo.
Initiates of the Greek Mystery schools were familiar with the idea, having themselves undergone arduous moral, psychological, and mental training and purification in preparation for the sacred experience of transcendent Reality. In similar fashion, the Pythias, by subjugating a portion of their nature, were able to receive and pass on to others something of this import and wonder.
Has this oracular gift been withdrawn from mankind? Many are asking today if it is still possible to receive such inspired advice. Perhaps it is: if we take to heart Apollo's injunction, Know thyself, and turn inwards for counsel. What we make of that counsel, however, is our challenge. Lykurgos used what he received to raise the level of Greek thought and conduct. Croesus, blinded by ambition, misunderstood, and destroyed his kingdom. Others found in the words of the God whether they came through oracle-priestess, prophet, or their own inner source -- guidance of a very high order.

34 Circe (Greek):
Circe, daughter of the sun, was a sorceress best known for her ability to turn men into animals with her magic wand. The daughter of Perse and Helios, and whose daughter is Aega (Goddess of the sun) she is remembered for her encounter with Odysseus and his men, and renowned for her knowledge of magic and poisonous herbs.
When Odysseus and his men landed in Aeaea, his crew later met with Circe and were turned into pigs. Circe's spells however had no effect on Odysseus who earlier was given an herb by Hermes to resist her power. Circe realizing she was powerless over him lifted the spell from the crew and welcomed them in her home. After about a year when Odysseus leaves she warns them of the sirens they will encounter on their journey. Circe and Odysseus also bore a child together named Telegonus who later ruled over the Tyrsenians.
Circe also has the powers for spiritual purification as she purifies the Argonauts for the murder of Apsyrtus.
In Greek mythology, Circe is a Queen nymphe, witch, enchantress or sorceress living on the island of Aeaea.
Circe's father was Helios (or Helius), the God of the sun and the owner of the land where Odysseus' men ate cattle, and her mother was Hecate the Goddess of magic and the moon ; she was sister of two kings of Colchis, Aeetes,and Perses, and of Pasipae, mother of the Minotaur. Circe transformed her enemies, or those who offended her, into animals through the use of magical potions. She was renowned for her knowledge of drugs and herbs.

Circe, The Goddess with Sorceress Powers
The name 'Circe' seems to be related to the English words 'circle' and 'circus'. They are derived from the Indo-European 'sker-3', 'To turn, bend'. One possibility is that her name relates to the gyre of a hawk and thus she is related to bird Goddesses. But it may also relate to the transformations that she performs and relates more to the fact that with her wand she turns men into pigs. The second part of her name may relate the the Indo-European 'ke-', 'To sharpen, whet'. This may reference the point of her wand. Thus her name may mean 'Turner (with the point of her wand)'
Circe is a Goddess, the daughter of the Sun and the sister of Aeetes, the king of Colchis, the land of the golden fleece. She lives on the island of Aeaea which is located to the west as far as Colchis in in the east. Homer indicates she is the daugher of Helios and Perse She was able to purify the Argonauts for the murder of Apsyrtus, the brother of Medea. When Odysseus landed on the island where she lived, she turned some of his men into beasts. Odysseus managed to escape her enchantment, and through a show of force managed to rescue his men and share her bed. He and his men then receive her hospitality for over a year. Later she bore Odysseus a son, Telegonius.
Circe is a temptress who proves that conquering sometimes just involves a show of force. To us she looks like a beautiful witch, but it is important to remember that she is not. She is, according to Homer, a Goddess. She is also an aunt of Medea. In the Odyssey Homer says, "And we came to the isle Aeaean, where dwelt Circe of the braided tresses, an awful Goddess of mortal speech, own sister to the wizard Aeetes. Both were begotten of Helios, who gives light to all men, and their mother was Perse, daughter of Oceanus."
Power over nature can be obtained in several ways. You can have knowledge of nature's ways. You can seek the power of a God or Goddess. Or, if you are a deity, you just do what you want, though often your power is limited to a realm. A witch uses the power of a deity, usually the devil. Ancient Greeks had no notion of the Devil but there was a whole pantheon of deities available. Homer seems to think Circe is a Goddess in her own right. Hermes says to Odysseus, "And I will tell thee all the magic sleight of Circe. She will mix thee a potion and cast drugs into the mess; but not even so shall she be able to enchant thee; so helpful is this charmed herb that I shall give thee, and I will tell thee all. When it shall be that Circe smites thee with her long wand, even then draw thou thy sharp sword from thy thigh, and spring on her, as one eager to slay her. And she will shrink away and be instant with thee to lie with her." Later Athena uses a similar wand to transform Odysseus. This clearly is the tool of a Goddess. But what Goddess has need of drugs and herbs? These have more relation to a knowledge of nature. Charms, of course, relate to a pact between a mortal and a deity. Thus, in this one scene we encounter all the ways of interacting with nature, and Circe seems both mortal and Goddess-like.
She could be well described as a beautiful witch as I have discussed earlier. But refering to her as a witch is confusing. It is interesting to note that the word 'witch' has Indo-European roots and is related to the word 'weik-2' which is related to concepts of magic. The word 'magic' is also Indo-European and comes from the word 'magh-1', 'To be able, to have power'. What was associated with this power was not originally in the hands of a hero but more likely a priestess of Indo-European religion. The power that a priestess invokes is not a material power but a spiritual one. Our word 'spell' refers to an incantation while the Indo-European word 'spel-3' means just 'To say aloud, recite'. Of course what the priestess says aloud are petitions to a deity whose action is desired. The model for Circe may be a priestess, but in fact she is a Goddess. She has no need to petition as she is a Goddess and should be able to act like one.
The concept of potion is more complex. The word 'potion' is also from Indo-European 'poi-1', 'To drink' and 'ag-', 'To drive'. The word 'ag-' became the word 'action' and strictly 'potion' comes from 'poi-1' and 'action' with the 'ac' of action dropped. So a potion is a drink that does something. There is reality here because there are plenty os substances that can act by bring drunk. Poisons, drugs, and alcohol are all examples. Whether a spell or a potion is involved there are realistically expected actions and ones that are unrealistic. It is in the realm of unrealistic expectation that magic is involved. These are hoped for actions that would require divine intervention.
The word 'wand' is also Indo-European from 'wendh-', 'To turn, wind, or weave'. Originally twigs were woven so a trig, as something that was woven, became a wand. But a wand is used in a transformation ceremony. When the men are touched by the wand they are transformed to pigs. So the turn can be interpreted as turn into.
Plainly Circe performs what is obviously magic and she seems to need spells, potions, and a wand. But because she is truely a Goddess none of these are truely necessary. Even so Circe has provided a model that is widely followed in art where a witch or a soceress is portrayed.
"She-Falcon"; Dark Moon Goddess; Fate-Spinner. Called the deathbird (kirkos or falcon). As the circle, or cirque, she was the fate-spinner, weaver of destinies. Ancient Greek writers spoke of her as Circe of the Braided Tresses because she could manipulate the forces of creation and destruction by knots and braids in her hair. The isle of Aeaea was a funerary shrine to her; its name is said to come from the grief wail. Associations: Physical love, sorcery, enchantments, procognitive dreams, evil spells, vengeance, dark magick, Witchcraft, and cauldrons.

****************************************
Circe (sometimes pronounced Kirkê --- properly prounced in traditional ancient Greek as Sur'-see):
Her origins and myths are plenty in Greek mythology. In one She is said to be the daughter of the Sea Nymph Perseis and the Sun God Helios, in another she is said to be the daughter of Goddess Hecate and Hermes. Her associations with Goddess Hecate are plentiful, from maiden servant, to student, to selling Her soul to Hecate in return for Hecate's magick.

In all myths of Goddess Circe, She is known as powerful Sorceress and Enchantress of magick. With flaming red hair She is portrayed brewing and offering potions with wand in hand, flying on a magick staff or holding a crystal ball. She lived on the enchanted island of Aeaea off the coast of Italy, where she lured sailors with Her song. It was said by many the island itself was magickal as it's name was the same backwards as it was forward and once upon Her shores the sailors would be lost forever. Goddess Ceres took many lovers and many a tale warned of their fate as swine after She had her fill of them.
In translation Circe means falcon and in many myths She is associated with the bird of prey. It is said She would circle her victims as She enchanted them and offered Her potions of hallucinations. Tales of trees dancing and the ground shaking to confuse and distort the path kept many a sailor from grounding on Her Island. How Goddess Circe must have laugh as she toyed with any who dare challenge the sanctuary of the Goddess. Other stories told about Goddess Circe marrying a Prince to gain ruler-ship over a kingdom near the Black Sea then poisoning him to rule alone. Once Her subjects discovered Her crime Goddess Circe fled in exile to an enchanted island where she lured and was scorned by many lovers.
One lover who scorned Her for another woman resulted in Her wrath turning him into a woodpecker and yet another tale resulted in the other woman being turned into a serpent.
The most famous tale of all is of Odysseus, hero of Homer's epic poem, who with his crew was sent into uncharted waters by the wrath of Poseidon while returning home from the Trojan War. Of course the tale is spun not in favor of the Goddess Ceres but Odysseus. It is said his men were turned into swine and only by winning the heart of the Goddess was he able to convince Her to undo Her evil magick and free his men. Of course the story goes on to tell of the many children Goddess Circe bore with Odysseus and the journey he was allowed into Hades under Her guide. Great wisdom was Odysseus granted on a journey that would have been impossible without Her magick. A little controversy there in opposition of the evil or good of Goddess Ceres.
In other myths not only did She turn men into beast but women who foolishly crossed her into serpents as well. We can only believe this must be the words of those who feared Her powers opposed to other myths where immorality came with the transformation and it was shape shifting and magick that was witnessed. The women not serpents at all but Priestesses under Her training.
Other tales of Goddess Circe tell of a compassionate Goddess whose beauty was intoxicating as She sat upon a throne in a purple robe and golden veil singing and weaving. Many describe Her Island as paradise and Her attendants as nymphs or priestesses who tended the plants and flowers of Her herbarium. That it was as Avalon, a sanctuary to all that sought the Mysteries.
Witches embrace the powerful Goddess and Sorceress that is Goddess Circe. She who could darken the heavens by hiding the moon or the sun behind summoned clouds, She who could give illusion to Her enemies and have men lust after Her as pigs and She who tended the Maidens in the mysteries of witchcraft.
Goddess Circe has withstood the twisted tales of time as Goddess has in Her many aspects, let us embrace Her power to choose and protect her fate. Let us mirror her choice to live in magick and enchantment for the mysteries are ours as daughters of Goddess Circe.
As Goddess Circe spins Her magick let us be reminded of the magick of potions and incantations we possess. As She would ride upon Her magick staff let us take to the astral planes on our broom and tend our own enchanted island.
****************************************
The witch Circe, whose hair resembled flames, lived in Aeaea, an island which could be located off the western or eastern coast of Italy, where she was brought by her father Helius. The name of this elusive island is what some call a palindrome, for it is the same when read backwards or forwards.
Some of those who visited Aeaea have told that Circe, who lived in a house made of stone in the middle of a clearing in a forest dell, used to sit on a throne wearing a purple robe and a golden veil. They said that her attendants were Nereids and Nymphs, whose only task to sort out the plants and flowers of Circe's herbarium, and put them in separate baskets.
Besides supervising them Circe, while singing beautifully, wove delicate and dazzling fabrics, which is one of the Goddesses' favorite occupations. Others have said that Circe was attended by four maids, one who threw covers over the chairs, another who drew silver tables up to the chairs, placing golden baskets on them, another who mixed the wine, and a fourth who fetched water and lit up the fire to warm it.

100 Hekate (Greek):

An oracle prophetess who spoke to those on the other side, and relayed the messages (a medium). Indicator of psychic and mediumistic abilities.

****************************************

The Goddess Hekate:
As a triple Goddess, Hecate represents Maiden, Mother and Crone; mind, body and spirit; and birth, life and death. As Mistress of the Night, She represents the three stages of the lunar cycle of New, Full and Dark. Hecate symbolizes the dark within us, the part of our psyche we refuse to acknowledge. Many ignore the wisdom, the strength and the truth of Hecate because our fear of the darkness is so strong. Hecate is associated with the dark side of the moon, but this is the true Moon. The Moon has no light of its own, only reflected light from the sun. Dark is the Moon's true color as is Hecate's. Although most see Hecate as the third phase of the moon, She is actually a Triple Goddess in her own right. She is Hecate the maiden, Hecate the Mother, and Hecate the Crone. Hecate can be called upon during any moon phase, as She is the One and the Three. In pronouncing her name, in the Greek language the "H" is silent. So, to properly pronounce her name is "E-CA-TA" or "e-CO-ta."
In Her maiden aspect, she stands for new beginnings. She can also be called upon when you need to look at something in a new, fresher way....a way that you have never looked at it before. You turn to Her when the moon begins to first wax. In Her Mother aspect is a time to turn to Her when you need nurturing and protection like any mother would give. Turn to Her when the Moon is Full. In Her Crone aspect, it is a time to turn to for protection, wisdom and magick. However, please bear in mind that Hecate is not a Goddess full of tenderness and compassion with white lace and linen. She is also more prone to be stern with you if you brought a situation upon yourself. However, Her wrath is swift and just to those who cause harm to a follower of Hers, because those who seek Her, honor Her and do not fear Her are in Her protection and She does not take lightly to those who cause them harm. She does not tolerate nor does She coddle. Turn to another Goddess if you seek this. Her actions are swift and without frills. So, when you do call upon Her, be prepared for Her swift actions and changes because it might not be what you expected.
Hecate teaches us an important lesson, which is that the feminine should be valued for itself, not because it brings sexuality or power, but because deep within it there is an eternal wisdom. Hecate is also the High Priestess, the keeper of the Mysteries. Hecate is not the priestess who seeks the inner knowledge, but High Priestess who has found it and imparts it to others.
Hecate, who sits enthroned before the Veil of the Temple as the High Priestess, the card in the Tarot which is ruled by the Moon. To reach daylight on the other side of the Veil, we must all become at one with the Dark Mother of the night. Whether it be Hecate guarding the home or of the temple, She will avert evil and provides protection.
The Goddess Hecate is also known as the liberator of women, as she sets women free from the bonds created by man. That is why the Christian Church put Hecate down and created her as the Goddess of evil and destruction. During Medieval times, pagans were being tortured based on their belief in the Goddess. Patriarchy reigned and the fear of feminine power caused the Church to demonize Hecate. She was made infamous as the crone; old, wrinkled, ugly, warts protruding from her nose and chin, mysterious, dark and loathsome. Many mistakenly call Her the destroyer, but She is not for if you destroy something, that something is forever gone. You cannot bring something back that has been destroyed. It has been said that the Goddess's service is perfect freedom. She is the liberator because She is manifest in our deepest drives and emotions, which always and inevitably threaten the systems designed to contain them. She is love and anger, which refuse to fit comfortably into the social order. To be "free from slavery" once meant that, within the ritual circle, all were equal, whether they were peasant, serf, or noble in the outside world. Slavery today could be mental and emotional as well as physical: the slavery of fixed perceptions, of conditioned ideas, of blind beliefs, of fear. Witchcraft demands intellectual freedom and the courage to confront our own assumptions. It is not a belief system: it is a constantly self-renewed attitude of joy and wonder to the world. Hecate enforces feminine independence from masculine influences and this deals in all things including the religion known as Wicca. Wicca is heavily influenced by the male God. The Sabbats are centered around the male God. The word Wicca is a male term....a term connected to the Goddess religion.
In today's society, we hide our elderly (or look right through them as if they do not exist) our sick, and our poor so e can pretend to be immune to such human conditions. But Hecate reminds us of the truth. She sees through the facade of societal amenities. She is not deceived by social standing, education or titles and wealth. Instead, She is impressed only by what is in the heart! She is patroness to those of the heart.
Hecate originally was a Thracian and pre-Olympian Goddess. Zeus bowed down to her antiquity by granting to Hecate alone a power shared by Zeus, that of withholding from humanity anything she wished. He also "granted" her the powers of the heavens, on Earth and the underworld......as if She did not have these powers already. He gave her nothing which She did not already have. Of all the Goddesses, she was the most markedly triple and the most complex. She was Goddess of the Wild Hunt. She was to Greeks and Romans, especially the Goddess of the crossroads. Statutes of Her stood there, and food offerings –"Hecate’s Supper" – were taken there at dead of night, on the eve of the full Moon. Her annual festival on August 13 was a propitiatory one, to avert the harvest-destroying storms which the Moon is apt to send at around that time. She also haunted graveyards and the scenes of crimes–as a Goddess of expiration and purification.
Hecate is the Darksome Mother, in both the positive and in the negative sense. To those that dare to welcome Her, she brings creative inspiration. She is Hecate Antea, the Sender of Nocturnal Vision, and, typically of a Moon Goddess. She is Hecate Trivia, Goddess of the Crossroads.
One of her symbols is the torch, for the Dark Mother also holds the light which illuminates the Unconscious and reveals its treasures. With Her torches she guides those who are seeking the mysteries. The light from these torches will lead those wishing to understand the mysteries.
In the Tarot, She is the Threes and the High Priestess; Her gems are star sapphire, pearl, moonstone, and crystal; Plants are the yew tree, cypress, opium, poppy, almond, mugwort, hazel, moonwort, civet, menstrual blood, camphor, garlic, aloes, all sweet virginal odors; Tools are the cauldron, the besom, knives, the key; animals are the dogs and horses, black cats. The owl is Her messenger. Her chariot is pulled by dragons. Hecate’s colors are silver and black.
Through Hecate’s Cauldron, we must look at our true self, the nature of our motives and the results of our actions, because only through Her cauldron can we truly be reborn in becoming a better person than we were before. Only when we look into Her dark cauldron can we see the light.
Hecate, and none but She, is Queen of all living things. It is through Her that all things live or die. She is the laughing maiden, the living mother, and the black hag of death. She is the three and the one. She smiles and the radiance of the moon, whether it be full or dark, is everywhere for there is no power like Her power and no living thing can withstand Her power. For She is anticipation. She is the fulfillment. She is death. Hear her words, children, worship and be glad for if you seek Her, She is with you always. She was with you in the beginning and shall be with you at the end.
****************************************
Often depicted as a "hag" or old witch stirring the cauldron. Hecate, the Greek Goddess of the crossroads has been denigrated in status from Goddess to witch in current times. The reasons are explained more fully in the full version of Hecate's story. (see the link at the bottom of this page.
The Greek Goddess Hecate was the only one of the Titans who Zeus allowed to retain authority once the Olympians had defeated them.

She was given the position within the new regime of being the guardian of the households and the protector of all that was newborn. This Goddess of witchcraft was once highly revered and had great influence in the pantheon. Only with Hecate was Zeus willing to share the tremendous power of giving mortals anything she wished (or, if she please, the power of withholding it).
The reclusive Hecate (who was called the 'Queen of the Night') often enjoyed nightly jaunts, accompanied by her hounds and sometimes by a following of "ghosts" and others who were social outcasts.
The Goddess Hecate was known (and also feared) as the protector of those who were oppressed and also those who tended to live a bit "on the edge". Her role in the Underworld, the land of the sleeping and the dead, undoubtedly made her feel more tolerant of those who most would shun out of fear or misunderstanding and more comfortable in their company.
Not surprisingly since Hecate had great influence in the "spirit world", appeals were often made to her for assistance in keeping one safe. She was known as a protector of young children, shepherds, and sailors. In addition, the Goddess could be counted upon to help those who were dying, easing their transition into the "Otherworld" and helping them prepare for a return in their next life.
Hecate is a Goddess who helps us make transitions and new beginnings, especially ones that were not planned. As a magical Goddess at home in the spirit world, she helps keep us in touch with our spiritual selves.

114 Kassandra (Greek):

In Greek mythology Cassandra was the daughter of Hecuba and Priam, the king of Troy, and the sister of Hector and Paris. She was blessed with the gift of prophecy. After angering the love-struck Apollo, Cassandra was cursed so that no one would believe her or her prophecies. She foresaw that the Trojan horse was a trick but was ignored and her city was destroyed because of it. From then on she knew she would be taken by Agamemnon and would help to bring about the fall of his household. She also foresaw her death and some of the events that occurred afterwards.

****************************************

CASSANDRA: THE PROPHETIC SOUL
Embracing the Vision
Cassandra stood on the walls of Troy and watched Paris’ ship enter the harbour. Her brother had returned from Sparta having seduced Helen away from her homeland to bring her to live in Troy as his wife. With the blessings of Aphrodite Paris and his lover Helen had snuck away from her palace undetected and sailed across the Aegean to Asia Minor. A dark cloud shrouded the ship as it anchored. When Cassandra watched her brother and Helen disembark and approach the city gates she was flooded with images of Troy’s destruction, filling her with an ominous and terrible feeling. Possessed by this eerie perception she uttered a warning to the crowd that was gathered at the gates to welcome the couple. From deep inside she divined the future: Helen’s entrance into the city would lead to its destruction. Ignoring Cassandra and her prophecy the crowds turned away to welcome the new royal couple into their city. Time and time again her message was rejected and ridiculed. Ten years later a similar scenario would unfold. Cassandra would warn the Trojans not to accept the wooden horse into their city. Once again no one would heed her accurate predictions. The Greeks, angry at Helen’s abduction, sacked Troy and left the city in ashes.
Cassandra was one of the daughters of the royal family of Troy, a sister to both Paris and Hector and twinned to her brother, Helenus. When the twins were infants they accompanied their parents to the temple of Apollo to celebrate a festival in honour of the oracular God. During the ritual the twins fell into a deep sleep. Two temple snakes slithered into their basket as they slept and bit them on their ears injecting the gift (or poison) of prophecy into them. From that day both Cassandra and Helenus were known for their prophetic nature.
Having the gift of sight Cassandra entered the temple to serve Apollo being called to her vocation as his Pythia, the voice of the oracular God. However Apollo fell in love with her and demanded she reciprocate his desire. But Cassandra refused to consummate the relationship preferring to worship the God in spirit, not body. Enraged Apollo found a way to avenge her rejection. Knowing he could not retract the gift of prophecy that he had given her when she was so young he cursed her so no one would ever believe her prophecies. The God begged her for one kiss and Cassandra consented. As she opened her mouth to kiss the God Apollo breathed his curse into her insuring others would no longer value her prophetic vision. He turned his back on her, condemning Cassandra to see the perilous future yet never able to be understood or believed. Cassandra, cursed by the narcissistic God for rejecting him, was later violently assaulted by Ajax upon the altar of Athena when the Greeks were ransacking Troy. After the sack of Troy the leader of the Greek fleet Agamemnon took her as his slave back to his palace of Mycenae. As she approached the mammoth walled city her images of destruction became more and more intense. Racked by the violent visions she screamed a warning for Agamemnon to not enter the palace foreseeing his brutal murder at the hands of his wife. In her heart she also knew that entering the city with him would result in her own death.
Cassandra personifies the medial woman whose intuitive faculties and understanding of the unconscious patterns are not welcomed in an ordered rational society. She sees what others are too fearful to see and exposes the inevitable patterns that underpin the situation. In an atmosphere of control and denial Cassandra is marginalised and demeaned becoming the projective reflection of the fear of chaos and uncertainty. Disbelief and ignorance render her wisdom impotent. When dark feelings, dread or grief are repressed in the atmosphere Cassandra is the medium of their expression. Her curse is that she is not identified with her feelings leaving her unable to connect or be understood. Her feelings are identified as autonomous ravings abandoning her to the sidelines of society. In a psychological context Cassandra’s ego identity has collapsed through her symbiotic alliance with the unexpressed shadow lurking in the atmosphere. Cassandra is able to sense what is taboo and unlived but unable to remain separate from it.
Cassandra represents the archetype of medial knowledge. Unlike the ancient world there are no longer sanctuaries or sacred places to honour her way of knowing. When the card appears it suggests the need to be aware and respectful of collective messages that arise in us even though they may not be understood or valued by others. She reflects the need to be aware of our medial skills and intuitive knowledge and seek training to help strengthen the ability to use this skill and not be overwhelmed by it. When Cassandra appears she encourages the individual to find a voice for the medium through understanding the symbols, images, signs and omens of unconscious language. She embodies the ancient ways of knowing in a culture that no longer values prophecy and divination. Her knowledge is not objective but oracular. To embrace Cassandra we must abandon logic, separateness and rationality and enter into the irrational world where meaning is revealed through feeling and connectedness. However Cassandra reminds us that in a scientific and ordered society our knowing may be rejected. Cassandra encourages us to have the strength of our convictions and a strong and healthy identity about our beliefs. When the card is chosen we may be seeking a message of guidance but the answer is all around us: in the rustling of the leaves, the flight of the birds, the synchronous movement of the planets, slips of the tongue or in the dream world.
Feminine Wisdom: Oracular knowing springs out of the collective through an unconscious and unbound participation with everything in the environment. When boundaries are blurred and the veil between the worlds is lifted we enter into a participation mystique with the spirits of the world beyond us and may be called to act as a vessel for their message.
****************************************

Apollo fell in love with Cassandra, the sister of Troilius, and daughter of Hecuba and Priam. He seduced Cassandra on the promise that he would teach her the art of prophecy, but having learnt the prophetic art she rejected him. Apollo, being angry of her rejection punished her, by declaring her prophecies never to be accepted or believed.

212 Medea (Greek):
Medea was a devotee of the Goddess Hecate, and one of the great sorceresses of the ancient world. She was the daughter of King Aeetes of Colchis, and the granddaughter of Helios, the sun God. Medea is known in most stories as an enchantress and is often depicted as being a priestess of the Goddess Hecate or a witch.
****************************************
Medea Goddess of Ritual and Healing:
Medea, a princess of Colchis, was known as the 'wise one' for her skill of healing and proficiency at using drugs and herbs.
Medea's ancestors were linked to both the Sun and healing long before Apollo became the God associated with these realms. Helios, Medea's grandfather, was the Sun God of the old order, born a Titan's son.
AUNT CIRCE THE SORCERESS
Her aunt Circe was a sorceress, a magician, herbalist and healer who knew the ancient ways of plants and spices and how to cast spells.
Circe had trained Medea as a young woman in the arts of sorcery, magic and herbalism, teaching her how to mix potions, direct spells and rearrange matter. Medea was also a priestess in the temple of Hecate, honouring the Goddess of the dark night and magic. Hecate guided her instincts.
As a medical intuitive she knew the magical properties of herbs, the appropriate plants for healing, homeopathic tinctures and the process of preparing and administering these remedies in her caldron. As the surrogate of Hecate Medea knew the timing of the lunar cycle and how to draw down the moon when ritual and ceremony was needed.
BETRAYAL
However, Medea was unable to withstand the unholy alliance of the Goddesses Hera and Athena who petitioned Aphrodite to conspire with them and cause the princess to fall in love with Jason.
Medea became enchanted by Eros and fell in love with the Greek hero, who had come to Colchis to retrieve the Golden Fleece. Medea helped Jason achieve this impossible task with the help of special ointments, incantations and timing. Medea enabled Jason, her heroic/lover, to succeed at the trials set before him but in helping Jason be successful Medea had to betray her family and flee her homeland.
On their flight from Colchis Medea visited her aunt Circe who absolved her of her betrayal and eventually Medea arrived at Jason's birthplace, at the foot of Mount Pelion in Thessaly.
MAGIC SKILLS
When she arrived in her new homeland Medea used her great skill at the arts of magic and herbs to rejuvenate Jason's father but also used her sorcery to trick the king's daughters into unintentionally killing their father. To prepare for this procedure Medea disappeared for nine days collecting the special drugs and herbs that she needed.
As the Moon swelled she gave sacrifices to her Goddess Hecate, then used drugs to help Aeson, Jason's father, fall into a deep sleep. She then cut his throat to let the old blood run out, dismembered him, putting the pieces in a caldron with the liquid herbs she had prepared.
Jason's father emerged from the caldron rejuvenated, forty years younger. Medea's spell captured the daughters of Pelias, the wicked uncle of Jason who had usurped his rightful claim to the throne. The daughters also wished to rejuvenate their father and Medea said she would perform the task again. The daughters prepared their father by dismembering him; however, this time Medea did not put the herbs in the caldron and their father never emerged.
MURDERER
Having been responsible for the murder of the king Medea and Jason once again were forced to escape. While fleeing Medea's herbal bag broke open, spilling her drugs seeding the plains of Thessaly with an abundance of healing and magical herbs. As the first sorceress to perform rituals in Thessaly Medea is the seminal figure behind the region being known as 'the land of the witches'. Her myth intimates that she introduced woman's herbal knowledge from Asia Minor into Greece.
When Medea is prominent in a birth chart she reveals the need to explore the ancient feminine traditions of herbalism, witchcraft and magic ritual. Intuitively we know the natural cycle of the body and what it needs to be well.
Medea reminds us to honour the ancient custom of relating to the plant world, the wisdom of nature and the powerful healing and transforming properties embedded in the natural world.
Instinctually the witch is the impulse that draws us to remedies and potions at the right time and is the urge to create ritual and ceremony to evoke the powers of the Goddess.

258 Tyche (Greek):

Greek Goddess of Fortune, Luck and Fate. Lucky chance.

Tyche was the Goddess or spirit of fortune, chance, providence and fate. She was usually honoured in a more favourable light as Eutykhia, Goddess of good fortune, luck, success and prosperity.
Tyche was represented with different attributes. Holding a rudder, she was conceived as the divinity guiding and conducting the affairs of the world, and in this respect she was called one of the Moirai (Fates); with a ball she represented the varying unsteadiness of fortune--unsteady and capable of rolling in any direction; with Ploutos or the horn of Amalthea, she was the symbol of the plentiful gifts of fortune.
Nemesis (Fair Distribution) was cautiously regarded as the downside of Tyche, one who provided a check on extravagant favours conferred by fortune. The pair were often depicted as companions in Greek vase painting. In one vase Nemesis (Indignation) with her arm around Tyche (Fortune) points an accusing fingure at Helene, who Aphrodite has persuaded to elope with Paris.
****************************************
The personification of chance or luck. Tyche was represented with different attributes: with a rudder, she was conceived as the divinity guiding and conducting the affairs of the world, and in this respect she is called one of the Moerae; with a ball she represents the varying unsteadiness of fortune; with Plutos or the horn of Amalthea, she was the symbol of the plentiful gifts of fortune. Tyche was worshipped at Pharae in Messenia; at Smyrna, where her statue, the work of Bupalus, held with one hand a globe on her head, and in the other carried the horn of Amalthea; in the arx of Sicyon; at Aegeira in Achaia, where she was represented with the horn of Amalthea and a winged Eros by her side; in Elis; at Thebes; at Lebadeia, together with agathos daimôn; at Olympia, and Athens.
****************************************
A nymph, one of the playmates of Persephone.
****************************************
Tyche is either one of the Oceanids (daughters of Oceanus and Tethys) or a Moira, one of the Moirae (Fates).
****************************************
Tyche was the personification of luck or chance.
She was often depicted with a rudder, guiding the affairs of the world, or with a ball to represent the fact that she was unpredictable and could "roll" in any direction at her whim.
Her surname was Automatia, which indicated that she managed things according to her own will without any regard to what an individual deserved or desired.

7 Iris (Greek):
Iris was the Goddess of the rainbow, the messenger of the Olympian Gods. She was often represented as the handmaiden and personal messenger of Hera. Iris was a Goddess of sea and sky - her father Thaumas "the wondrous" was a marine-God, and her mother Elektra "the amber" a cloud-nymph. For the coastal-dwelling Greeks, the rainbow's arc was most often seen spanning the distance beteween cloud and sea, and so the Goddess was believed to replenish the rain-clouds with water from the sea. Iris had no distinctive mythology of her own. In myth she appears only as an errand-running messenger and was usually described as a virgin Goddess. Her name contains a double meaning, being connected both with iris, "the rainbow," and eiris, "messenger."
Iris appears in ancient Greek vase paintings as a beautiful young woman with golden wings, a herald's rod (kerykeion), and sometimes a water-pitcher (oinochoe) in her hand. She was usually depicted standing beside Zeus or Hera, sometimes serving nectar from her jug. As cup-bearer of the Gods Iris is often indistinguishable from Hebe in art.

19521 Chaos (Greek):

Khaos (or Chaos) was the first of the Protogenoi (primeval Gods) to emerge at the creation of the universe. She was followed in quick succession by Gaia (Earth), Tartaros (the Underworld) and Eros (Love the life-bringer).
Khaos was the lower atmosphere which surrounded the earth - invisible air and gloomy mist. Her name khaos literally means the gap, the space between heaven and earth. Khaos was the mother or grandmother of the other substances of air: Nyx (Night), Erebos (Darkness), Aither (Light) and Hemera (Day), as well as the various emotion-affecting Daimones which drifted through it. She was also a Goddess of Fate like her daughter Nyx and grand-daughters the Moirai (The Fates).

128 Nemesis (Greek):

Nemesis was the Goddess of indignation against, and retribution for, evil deeds and undeserved good fortune. She was a personification of the resentment aroused in men by those who commited crimes with apparent impunity, or who had inordinate good fortune.
Nemesis directed human affairs in such a way as to maintain equilibrium. Her name means "she who distributes or deals out". Happiness and unhappiness were measured out by her, care being taken that happiness was not too frequent or too excessive. If this happened, Nemesis could bring about losses and suffering. As one who checked extravagant favours by Tyche (Goddess of Fortune), Nemesis was regarded as an avenging or punishing divinity.
In myth Nemesis was particularly concerned with matters of love. She appears as an avenging agent in the stories of Narkissos and Nikaia, whose callous actions brought about the death of their wooers. In some versions of the Trojan War, she was the mother of Helene, and is shown in scenes of her seduction by Paris pointing an accusing finger at the girl.
Nemesis was often sometimes depicted as a winged Goddess. Her attributes were apple-branch, rein, lash, sword, or balance. Her name was derived from the Greek words nemêsis and nemô, meaning "dispenser of dues." The Romans usually used the Greek name of the Goddess, but sometimes also called her Invidia (Jealousy) and Rivalitas (Jealous Rivalry).
Nemesis is most commonly described as a daughter of Night, though some call her a daughter of Erebus or of Oceanus. Nemesis is a personification of the moral reverence for law, of the natural fear of committing a culpable action, and hence of conscience, and for this reason she is mentioned along with Aidôs, i. e. Shame. In later writers, as Herodotus and Pindar, Nemesis is a kind of fatal divinity, for she directs human affairs in such a manner as to restore the right proportions or equilibrium wherever it has been disturbed; she measures out happiness and unhappiness, and he who is blessed with too many or too frequent gifts of fortune, is visited by her with losses and sufferings, in order that he may become humble, and feel that there are bounds beyond which human happiness cannot proceed with safety. This notion arose from a belief that the Gods were envious of excessive human happiness. Nemesis was thus a check upon extravagant favours conferred upon man by Tyche or Fortune, and from this idea lastly arose that of her being an avenging and punishing power of fate, who, like Dike and the Erinyes, sooner or later overtakes the reckless sinner. The inhabitants of Smyrna worshipped two Nemeses, both of whom were daughters of Night. She is frequently mentioned under the surnames Adrasteia and Rhamnusia or Rhamnusis, the latter of which she derived from the town of Rhamnus in Attica, where she had a celebrated sanctuary. Besides the places already mentioned she was worshipped at Patrae and at Cyzicus. She was usually represented in works of art as a virgin divinity, and in the more ancient works she seems to have resembled Aphrodite, whereas in the later ones she was more grave and serious, and had numerous attributes. But there is an allegorical tradition that Zeus begot by Nemesis at Rhamnus an egg, which Leda found, and from which Helena and the Dioscuri sprang, whence Helena herself is called Rhamnusis. On the pedestal of the Rhamnusian Nemesis, Leda was represented leading Helena to Nemesis. The Rhamnusian statue bore in its left hand a branch of an apple tree, in its right hand a patera, and on its head a crown, adorned with stags and an image of victory. Sometimes she appears in a pensive standing attitude, holding in her left hand a bridle or a branch of an ash tree, and in her right a wheel, with a sword or a scourge.

638 Moira (Greek):
Greek Goddess of Fate. Moira is the name of a single Goddess of fate in Greek mythology. Together the three Goddesses were known as the Moirai. The Fates are Clotho who is depicted with a spindle Lachesis depicted with a scroll or globe, and Atropos depicted with a pair of scales or shears.

97 Klotho (Greek):

Greek Goddess Clotho is the youngest of the three Fates, but one of the oldest Goddesses in Greek mythology. She is a daughter of Zeus and Themis. Each fate has a certain job, whether it be measuring thread, spinning it on a spindle, or cutting the thread at the right length. Clotho is the spinner, and she spins the thread of human life with her distaff. The length of the string will determine how long a certain person's life will be. She is also known to be the daughter of Night, to indicate the darkness and obscurity of human destiny. No one knows for sure how much power Clotho and her sisters have, however; they often disobey the ruler, Zeus, and other Gods. For some reason, the Gods seem to obey them, whether because the fates do possess greater power, or as some sources suggest, their existence is part of the order of the Universe, and this the Gods cannot disturb.

273 Atropos (Greek):

In Greek mythology, Atropos was one of the three Moirae, the Fates, the female deities who supervised fate rather than determine it. Atropos was the fate who cut the thread or web of life. She was known as the "inflexible" or "inevitable" and cut this thread with the "abhorred shears." She worked along with Clotho, who spun the thread, and Lachesis, who measured the length. They were the daughters of Zeus and Themis (the Goddess of order.) It is not clear whether the fates were superior to Zeus or if he was subject to them as mortals were. The Roman name of the fates are Nona, Decuma, and Morta.

1862 Apollo (Greek):
Greek God of Music. Also the God of Prophecy and oracle. God of healing, teacher to Chiron and Father of Asklepios.
****************************************
The God of music, playing a golden lyre. The Archer, far shooting with a silver bow. The God of healing who taught man medicine. The God of light and truth, who can not speak a lie. One of Apollo's daily tasks is to harness his chariot with four horses an drive the Sun across the sky. His tree was the laurel. The crow his bird. The dolphin his animal.
****************************************
In a relationship, if one person's Apollo is conjunct the Sun, Moon, Venus, Mars or Ascendant of the other person, the love the Apollo person receives is unbelievable. It is sometimes to the point of worship.
In a relationship, if one person's Apollo is conjunct the Sun, Moon, Venus, Mars or Ascendant of the other person, the love the Apollo person receives is unbelievable. It is sometimes to the point of worship. This can be especially true in a parent-child relationship. A case in point: a woman does not really like children and barely tolerates her own. However when she has her third child, the baby has Apollo exactly on the woman's Virgo Moon. The mother adores the child, loves it, and cannot believe that she can feel so strongly toward the child.
On the negative side, in a long-term relationship the planet person may grow weary of worshipping the Apollo person, and begin to resent some of the very qualities he once idolized. As you might imagine, in the above example, the mother found herself regretting the way she had spoiled this child, once he reached adolescence!
By house it seems to denote a place where you feel that it is your right to expect your own way, and often where you take for granted some particular personal rights you have always respected. If these are transgressed you can be totally dumbfounded, unable to believe that such a thing has occurred. And you may not have any idea how to rectify the situation.
Keywords: fixation, intensity, crisis-mastery, exaltation, commitment, challenge. The liabilities - especially with conjunctions - are tunnel vision, blind spots, irrational awe, imbalance, obsession.

He was also closely connected with bringing dreams to mortals. Hermes is usually depicted with a broad-brimmed hat or a winged cap, winged sandals and the heralds staff (kerykeion in Greek, or Caduceus in Latin). It was often shown as a shaft with two white ribbons, although later they were represented by serpents intertwined in a figure of eight shape, and the shaft often had wings attached. The clothes he donned were usually that of a traveler, or that of a workman or shepherd. Other symbols of Hermes are the cock, tortoise and purse or pouch.

3361 Orpheus (Greek):
Orpheus was a legendary singer and musician in Greek mythology. Indeed, many stories about Orpheus focus on his ability to enchant audiences with a song. From his exploits with the Argonauts, to his most memorable myth - that of rescuing his wife Eurydice from the Underworld - Orpheus dazzled listeners with his mellifluous voice in tale after tale. To learn more about this master musician, read on.
According to some sources, Orpheus was the son of the God Apollo and the Muse Calliope. These parents - a God of music and the Muse of epic poetry - help to explain the origin of Orpheus's extraordinary musical gift. And the power of this God-like gift for song was undeniable. The ancient poets Aeschylus and Euripides both tell of how Orpheus used his talents to charm wild animals, trees, and rocks.
Even Hades, the stern and gloomy God of the Underworld, was not immune to the haunting magic of Orpheus's singing. For in one of the most compelling stories about Orpheus, the musician descends to the dark Underworld and begs Hades to release his wife Eurydice from the realm of the dead. After explaining how his young bride was accidentally killed, Orpheus uses his powers as a musician to persuade Hades to let him bring Eurydice back to the land of the living. In Ovid's version of the story, the God of the Underworld agrees to the request, with one condition - Orpheus must not look upon Eurydice until they both reach the surface of the earth. However, the enthusiastic bard forgets this warning and glances at his lovely wife just before they are free of the Underworld. At this moment, Orpheus once again loses his wife.
The story now takes an even more tragic turn. After losing Eurydice for a second time, Orpheus wanders the earth in despair. The musician loved his wife desperately, and wants nothing to do with women. A group of Thracian Maenads, however, take revenge on Orpheus and tear him to pieces. But there is a poetic note to this sad ending. It is said that even after his death, the head of Orpheus floated down the Hebrus river, singing a beautiful and enchanting song of lost love.
****************************************
Orpheus, king of the Ciconians, is counted among the Argonauts. Orpheus practised minstrelsy and by his songs moved stones and trees, holding also a spell over the wild beasts. He descended to the Underworld in order to fetch his dead wife, but had to return without her.
Orpheus, whom Apollo taught to play the lyre, travelled to Egypt where he increased his knowledge about the Gods and their initiatory rites, bringing from that country most of his mystic ceremonies, orgiastic rites, and his extraordinary account of his descent to the Underworld.
Orpheus became famous because of his poems and his songs, excelling everyone in the beauty of his verse and music. He also reached a high degree of influence because he was believed to have discovered mysteries, purification from sins, cures of diseases, and means of averting divine wrath.
Some say that Orpheus introduced a cult of Dionysus that was very similar to the cult of Osiris, and that of Isis, which resembles the cult of Demeter. But others affirm that he praised all the Gods except Dionysus.
The Aeginetans worshiped Hecate, and in her honor celebrated every year mystic rites which, they said, had been taught to them by Orpheus. And the Lacedaemonians asserted that it was Orpheus who had taught them the cult of Demeter Chthonia (of the Lower World).
Orpheus married Eurydice, but she, while strolling through the grass with a group of naiads, was smitten in the ankle by a serpent, which shot its poison into her body and killed her.
Having mourned her to the full in the upper world, Orpheus decided to fetch her, and for that purpose he descended to Hades through the gate of Taenarus.
Having descended to the Underworld, Orpheus accompanied his words with the music of the lyre, and it is told that not only the spirits wept but that also the Erinyes were wet with tears. He also entranced Persephone by his songs, and persuaded her to help him in his desire to bring back to life his dead wife. And so even Hades himself was persuaded to let her go.
However, the God promised to do so only if on the way up Orpheus would not turn round until he came to his own house. But thoughtless Orpheus forgot, and when he turned round and looked at his wife, she instantly slipped into the depths again. In this manner Orpheus lost her a second time.

4341 Poseidon (Greek):

The Greek equivalent of Neptune, Poseidon represents psychic phenomena, abilities and awareness.

****************************************

God of the sea, also called the Earthshaker, since he was thought to cause earthquakes, Poseidon was the son of Cronus and Rhea and brother of Zeus and Hades. He was the husband of Amphitrite, with whom he had Triton. He also had children with his many mistresses, for example the Cyclops, Pegasus, Thesus and Orion.
Originally, Poseidon was the God of water, but later became a sea-God as well as the ultimate master of the wells and rivers. His temples were usually situated by the sea, the remains of one of them can still be seen at Cap Sounion, not far from Athens. He was the patron God of the Ionians.
In art Poseidon was pictured with a trident and the dolphin was his animal.
Poseidon was also the horse-God, and the ancient Greeks would sacrifice horses to him and sink them into the sea. He was also connected to bulls.
During the Trojan wars he sided with the Greeks since a king of Troy had refused to pay him for building the city walls, but he an enemy of Odysseus after he had killed his son Polyphemus the Cyclop.
Poseidon had wanted to be the protector of Athens, and in a competition with Athena about the city, he offered a spring to the Athenians.
When the people drank the water they had to spit it out since it was salt, Poseidon being a sea-God. He lost to Athena who had given Athens the olive tree.
The ancient Greeks celebrated the God through the Istmian Games which were held every two years.

In Roman mythology Poseidon is called Neptune. He also had the following epithats:
Aegaeus, Asphaleius, Cuerius, Damatites, Epactaeus, Epopsius, Gaeaochus, Genethlius, Heliconius, Hippius, Hippocurius, Isthmus, Lechaeus, Onchestius, Patros, Petraeus, Samicus, Samius, Taenarius.

14827 Hypnos (Greek):

Hypnos (or Hypnus) was the god or spirit (daimon) of sleep. He resided in Erebos, the land of eternal darkness, beyond the gates of the rising sun. From there he rose into the sky each night in the train of his mother Nyx (Night). Hypnos was often paired with his twin brother Thanatos (Peaceful Death), and the Oneiroi (Dreams) were his brothers or sons.
Hypnos was depicted as a young man with wings on his shoulders or brow. His attributes included either a horn of sleep-inducing opium, a poppy-stem, a branch dripping water from the river Lethe (Forgetfulness), or an inverted torch.
****************************************
Hypnotic abilities, getting info from with the unconscious while sleeping.

****************************************

God of sleep and dreams. Indicates where/how you are hypnotic and/or dreamy. Can indicate talent for hypnotism/trance inducing.

****************************************

In another interpretation, Hypnos represents the mind of the white Buddha Vairocana (ether element) who has his equivalent in the Hindu god Brahma and his different Nirvana-levels. What a coincidence between three world religions. To break the magical circle of death and rebirth, it is a main goal of Buddhist psychology to merge one's mind completely with the Clear Light. In failing this the mind is in danger of following the reverse process back into the elements and senses, dualistic thinking, illusionary dream pictures, etc., looking for rebirth and coming under the influence of Morpheus and the 'World af the Young Gods'. So the highest goal af Buddhist yogis is to train their minds in reaching the meditative balance (Samadhi, Mahamudra, Tzogchen, Tao) learning certain techniques of dream yoga, working with the inner elements, trying to bring together the Kundalini energy into the heart chakra, using sexual visualizations or deity mandalas, losing the fear of death, trying to pre-experience the different Bardos.
Through the discovery of Hypnos we have found a very important, if not the most important, key which enables one just by simple calculation to find suitable times for coming into contact with states of enlightenment - in the truest sense of the word. The energies of Pluto, Neptune and Uranus transits invoke more certain levels of archetypes of the Sambhogakaya or dream states, enforce mind activities of special chakras or initiate ego transformations, but they don't lead to direct experiences of Emptiness. Following my own experiences with Hypnos, which in many cases didn't occur during meditative training, I found that it is possible, even for 'non-believers', to verify empirically different Bardo states which are the very fundaments of the Indo-Tibetan depth psychology. There is a surprisingly strong intercultural connection between the esoteric teachings of the East and the West, between Hesiod's 'Theogony' and 'The Tibetan Book of the Dead'.
Besides the most important esoteric value caused by the core of the comet Hypnos, he also effects very strongly the exoteric developments by his tail. Therefore the study of Hypnos is equally important for all kinds of astrologers, scientists, meditation practitioners, psychologists, etc.. Following Hypnos needs a lot of encouragement and bravery because he catapults you out of the usual orbit of your ego's thinking and feeling habits. In a philosophical sense he might even question the status of the ego itself. He is capable of bringing it to a standstill and of conquering time and space. In this way he can be seen equally as an enemy as well as a helpful friend to our Western culture which is based upon an exaggerated ego-cult and an extreme Nirvana-fear. This ego-cult can cause a lot of suffering and wrong views and needs a revision and careful investigation by our modern thinking. 'To be and not to be, that is the answer.'

3671 Dionysus (Greek):

Dionysus or Dionysos was the God of wine and inspired madness, and a major figure of Greek mythology. He represents not only the intoxicating power of wine, but also its social and beneficial influences. The geographical origins of his cult were unknown, but almost all myths depicted him as having "foreign" (i.e. non-Greek) origins.
He was also known as Bacchus and the frenzy he induces, bakcheia. He is the patron deity of agriculture and the theatre. He was also known as the Liberator (Eleutherios), freeing one from one's normal self, by madness, ecstasy, or wine. The divine mission of Dionysus was to mingle the music of the aulos and to bring an end to care and worry. Scholars have discussed Dionysus' relationship to the "cult of the souls" and his ability to preside over communication between the living and the dead.
In Greek mythology Dionysus is made to be a son of Zeus and Semele; other versions of the myth contend that he is a son of Zeus and Persephone. He is described as being womanly or "man-womanish". Dionysus had an unusual birth that evokes the difficulty in fitting him into the Olympian pantheon. His mother was Semele (daughter of Cadmus), a mortal woman, and his father Zeus, the king of the Gods. Zeus's wife, Hera, a jealous and vain Goddess, discovered the affair while Semele was pregnant. Appearing as an old crone, Hera befriended Semele, who confided in her that her husband was actually Zeus. Hera pretended not to believe her, and planted seeds of doubt in Semele's mind. Curious, Semele demanded of Zeus that he reveal himself in all his glory as proof of his Godhood. Though Zeus begged her not to ask this, she persisted and he agreed. Mortals, however, cannot look upon a God without dying, and she perished. Zeus rescued the fetal Dionysus, however, by sewing him into his thigh.
A few months later, Dionysus was born.In another version of the same story, Dionysus was the son of Zeus and Persephone, the queen of the underworld. A jealous Hera again attempted to kill the child, this time by sending Titans to rip Dionysus to pieces after luring the baby with toys. Zeus drove the Titans away with his thunderbolts, but only after the Titans ate everything but the heart, which was saved, variously, by Athena, Rhea, or Demeter. Zeus used the heart to recreate Dionysus and implant him in the womb of Semele, hence he was again "the twice-born". Sometimes people said that he gave Semele the heart to eat to impregnate her.
The rebirth in both versions of the story is the primary reason he was worshipped in mystery religions, as his death and rebirth were events of mystical reverence. This narrative was apparently used in certain Greek and Roman mystery religions.
****************************************
The God of wine, mysteries, and the theater He invented wine and spread the art of tending grapes. He has a dual nature. On the one hand bringing joy and divine ecstasy. On the other brutal, unthinking, rage. Thus, reflecting both sides of wines nature. If he choses Dionysus can drive a man mad. No normal fetters can hold him or his followers. He was accompanied by the Maenads, wild women, carrying rods tipped with pine cones. While other Gods had temples the followers of Dionysus worshipped him in the woods. Here they might go into mad states where they would rip apart and eat raw any animal they came upon. Dionysus is also one of the very few that was able to bring a dead person(his mother) out of the underworld. The festival for Dionysus is in the spring when the leaves begin to riper on the vine. It became one of the most important events of the year. It's focus became the theater. Most of the great Greek plays were initially written to be performed at the feast of Dionysus. All who took part writers, actors, spectators were regarded as scared servants of Dionysus during the festival.

79 Eurynome (Greek):
Eurynome was easily the most important Goddess of Pelasgian myth. She was the Great Goddess, Mother, Creatrix, Ruler, called the Goddess of All Things.
Eurynome was born from Chaos, and her first work was to separate the water from the sky. When she had accomplished this, she began to dance across the water. It was a beautiful, sensual dance of creation. As she danced, she danced South, and she danced faster and faster until a wind grew behind her. Eurynome caught the wind between her hands and rubbed it into a snake. The snake, called Ophion, watched as the Goddess danced and danced to keep herself warm. He saw Eurynome dancing across the waves and was filled with lust. He coiled his body around the Goddess seven times and made love to her as she danced.
Impregnated by Ophion, soon the Goddess lay the Universal Egg. Ophion wrapped his body around it seven times at Eurynome's bidding. As it opened, the earth spilled forth, born populated with animals and plants.
At this point the Mother ascended to Mt. Olympus and began to watch her children take shape. When she ascended, the serpent Ophion followed her as the Goddess's consort. Eurynome had no problem with this, but when Ophion began to swagger and boast that he alone was responsible for the creation of the world, Eurynome kicked all his teeth out as she threw his butt out of heaven.
Next, Eurynome created the Seven Planetary Powers, putting a Titaness and a Titan over each. Theia and Hyperion were given the Sun and the power of illumination; Phoebe and Atlas were given the Moon and the power of enchantment; Dione and Crius were given the planet Mars and the power of growth; Metis and Coeus were given the planet Mercury and the power of wisdom; Themis and Eurymedon were given the planet Jupiter and the power of law; Tethys and Oceanus were given the planet Venus and the power of love; and Rhea and Cronus took the planet Saturn with the power of peace.
The first person was a different story. In this tradition, the first human was the man Pelasgus who sprang from the soil of Arcadia (soon followed by others). They made little huts and ate acorns and wore pig-skin tunics.
These myths are ancient myths. According to the theory of a matriarchal prehistory, there were no Gods or priests, only one mother Goddess and her priestesses. Part of the reason for this was that fatherhood was not clearly understood. People believed that women could be impregnated by the wind or from eating something. Eurynome was only one of the Goddess's names. Eurynome, "wide wandering," refers to her as the moon traveling across the sky, by the Sumerians she was called the "exalted dove," or, Iahu. The Eurynome cult spread all over the Mediterranean and was really a base for most of the religions of the area.
In the Titan cults that preceeded the Olympic cults (Classical mythology), Eurynome was the daughter of Oceanus the Titan. She was a Titaness married to the Titan Ophion. But in this version, though Eurynome still ruled heaven, Ophion ruled as an equal. The two ruled together on Mt. Olympus until Cronos replaced Ophion and Rhea replaced Eurynome.
By the time Classical mythology came around, Eurynome had shrunk to being one of Zeus' many loves (mother of the Charites) and a gentle Oceanid, a far cry from the All-Powerful Creatrix.
****************************************
Eurynome was the Titan Goddess of water-meadows and pasturelands, and one of the elder Okeanides. She was the third bride of Zeus who bore him the Kharites, three Goddesses of grace and beauty. Eurynome was also the Goddess of the river Neda in Arkadia, and the mother of Asopos, a nearby stream. Her name was derived from the Greek words eurys "wide," "broad," and nomia "pasturelands."
****************************************
Eurynome, or "wide wandering", is the Pelasgian (pre-Hellenic people of Greece) Great Goddess of all things. She divided the sky from the sea and, while dancing on the waves, created the north wind. The north wind grew lustful, so she seized him in her hands and formed a serpent she called Ophion. Eurynome made love with Ophion and then assumed the form of a dove to lay the universal egg out of which all creation came. Ophion, not content with being a creation of Eurynome and then cocreating with her, boasted that he was the supreme creator. Eurynome knocked out his teeth and banished him.
The Lessons of this Goddess:
Eurynome dances into your life to tell you it is time for ecstasy. Ecstasy is here for you in all its fullness, exuberance, and rapture. How can you give yourself ecstasy, that deeply nourshing, intensely joyful place? One way is by healing the wounded parts of yourself. Your wounded parts take up emotional space within you. Once healed, the space they previously occupied becomes available for ecstasy. The more space within, the more room for ecstasy. Another road to ecstasy is to open to it. To give yourself permission to call it in, feel it, and revel in it. For those of us who have experienced little joy in our livesm the conscious decision to court, seduce, and entice ecstasy ensures it will come. The Goddess says that when you make the decision to dance with ecstasy, all life challenges you with the opportunities to facilitate that dance.

157 Dejanira (Greek):
Dejanira (Latinized in Greek, 'man-destroyer' or 'destroyer of her husband') is a figure in Greek mythology, best-known for being Heracles' third wife and, in the late Classical story, unwittingly killing him with the Shirt of Nessus.
Dejanira is the daughter of Althaea and Oeneus ('wine-man' and thus civilized), the king of Calydon, and the sister of Meleager. She also was said to have become the mother of Macaria (who saved the Athenians from defeat by Eurystheus).
One version of a late Classical tale relates that she was of such striking beauty that both Heracles and Achelous wanted to marry her and there was a contest to win her hand. Her father had already betrothed her to the fearsome river God Achelous, horned and bull-like. Dejanira was not passive, however. "This Dejanira drove a chariot and practiced the art of war", noted Apollodorus (Library and Epitome, book i, 8:1), but she wanted nothing to do with her suitor, who was able to take the form of a speckled serpent, a bull-headed man, or a bull. Robert Graves interpreted the association with war as a relationship with the pre-Olympian war Goddess, Athene, who was an orgiastic bride in many local sacred marriages to kings who may have been sacrificed. Heracles, the greatest hero of the dawning Classical Olympian world of deities and men, had to defeat the river God to win her as his bride.
In another version of her tale, Dejanira is instead the daughter of Dexamenus, king of Olenus. Heracles violates her and promises to come back and marry her. While he is away, the centaur Eurytion appears, demanding her as his wife. Her father, being afraid, agrees. Heracles appears in the nick of time and slays the centaur, claiming his bride.
The central story of Dejanira, however, concerns the Tunic of Nessus. The wild centaur Nessus attempted to kidnap Dejanira as he was ferrying her across the river Euenos, but she was rescued by Heracles, who shot the centaur with a poisoned arrow. As he lay dying, Nessus lied to Dejanira, telling her that a mixture of olive oil with the semen that he had dropped on the ground and his heart's blood would ensure that Heracles would never again be unfaithful.
Dejanira believed his words and kept a little of the potion by her. Heracles fathered illegitimate children all across Greece and then fell in love with Iole (also called Omphal). When Dejanira thus feared that her husband would leave her forever, she smeared some of the blood on Heracles' famous lionskin shirt. Heracles' servant, Lichas, brought him the shirt and he put it on. The centaur's toxic blood burned Heracles terribly, and eventually, he threw himself into a funeral pyre. In despair, Dejanira committed suicide by hanging herself or with a sword.

1009 Sirene (Greek):
The Sirenes (or Sirens) were three sea nymphes who lured sailors to their death with a bewitching song. They were formerly handmaidens of the Goddess Persephone. When the girl was secretly abducted by Hades, Demeter gave them the bodies of birds, and sent to assist in the search. They eventually gave up and settled on the flowery island of Anthemoessa.
The Seirenes were later encountered by the Argonauts who passed by unharmed with the help of Orpheus, the poet drowing out their music with his song. Odysseus also sailed by, bound tightly to the mast, his men blocking their ears with wax. The Seirenes were so distressed to see a man hear their song and yet escape, that they threw themselves into the sea and drowned.
The Seirenes were depicted as birds with either the heads, or the entire upper bodies, of women. In mosaic art they were depicted with just bird legs.
****************************************
Sirenes are mythical beings who were believed to have the power of enchanting and charming, by their song, any one who heard them. When Odysseus, in his wanderings through the Mediterranean, came near the island on the lovely beach of which the Sirens were sitting, and endeavouring to allure him and his companions, he, on the advice of Circe, stuffed the ears of his companions with wax, and tied himself to the mast of his vessel, until he was so far off that he could no longer hear their song. According to Homer, the island of the Sirens was situated between Aeaea and the rock of Scylla, near the south-western coast of Italy. Homer says nothing of their number, but later writers mention both their names and number some state that they were two, Aglaopheme and Thelxiepeia; and others, that there were three, Peisinoë, Aglaope, and Thelxiepeia, or Parthenope, Ligeia, and Leucosia. They are called daughters of Phorcus, of Achelous and Sterope, of Terpsichore, of Melpomene, of Calliope, or of Gaea. Their place of abode is likewise different in the different traditions, for some place them on cape Pelorum others in the island of Anthemusa, and others again in the Sirenusian islands near Paestum, or in Capreae. The Sirens are also connected with the legends about the Argonauts and the rape of Persephone. When the Argonauts, it is said. passed by the Sirens, the latter began to sing, but in vain, for Orpheus rivalled and surpassed them ; and as it had been decreed that they should live only till some one hearing their song should pass by unmoved, they threw themselves into the sea, and were metamorphosed into rocks. Some writers connected the self-destruction of the Sirens with the story of Orpheus and the Argonauts, and others With that of Odysseus. Late poets represent them as provided with wings, which they are said to have received at their own request, in order to be able to search after Persephone, or as a punishment from Demeter for not having assisted Persephone, or from Aphrodite, because they wished to remain virgins. Once, however, they allowed themselves to be prevailed upon by Hera to enter into a contest with the Muses, and being defeated, they were deprived of their wings. There was a temple of the Sirens near Surrentum, and the tomb of Parthenope was believed to be near Neapolis.

382 Dodona (Greek):
Dodona is situated in northwestern Greece, in the region of Epirus. This ancient sanctuary and oracle of Zeus dates back as far as the third millennium BCE when the "earth mother" was worshipped here.
Early in the second millennium BCE the worship of the "holy beech tree" sprang up (in other versions an oak tree) today the oak tree is preferred as the oak is sacred to Zeus. During the 13th and 14th centuries BCE the worship of the Pelasgian God Zeus was beginning to be established in Dodona, and the original earth Goddess was renamed "Diona" and subsequently became the wife of Zeus (Dias). They both lived among the branches of the holy tree, where the seer-priests interpreted what the God spoke from the rustling of the leaves.
In the early period there were no buildings as such and according to Homer's epic poem the Iliad, (circa 750 BCE) the priests "slept on the ground, with unwashed feet". But Herodotus wrote (circa 435 BCE) that priestesses had replaced the male priests. " These priestesses called themselves doves" (peleiades), this probably comes from the legend of two priestesses from Thebes in Egypt, who were abducted by Phoenicians, to escape they turned themselves into two black doves and flew away. One landed in Libya (and established a similar sanctuary to that of Dodona). When the black dove alighted on a branch of a tree in Dodona it spoke in a human voice, demanding that an oracle be established there. (Another mythological story, this from "Jason and the Argonauts", says that Jason's ship "the Argo" had the gift of prophecy, as the prow had been carved by Athena from an oak tree which was taken from the wood beside the sanctuary of Zeus at Dodona.)
In the early fourth century BCE a small temple was built in honor and worship of Zeus, and in the third century the Epirote king Pyrrhus had put together a building program and also inaugurated a festival to be held every four years, with athletic and musical competitions, the building program included various auxiliary buildings, also a wall to protect the oracle and holy tree, around the same period the temples of Heracles and Diona were built, as well as the first theatre which had a stone floor and wooden proscenium. Although Dodona became the religious and political center of northwestern Greece it was never as influential as the oracle of Apollo at Delphi. An invasion by the Aetolians ( 219 BCE) destroyed the buildings of the Dodona oracle, but were rebuilt by the Epirotes with the help of king Philip V of Macedon. The temple of Zeus was made bigger and more splendid, as were those of Heracles and Diona, and in addition a stadium was built.
During the Roman conquest the sanctuary of Dodona was once again destroyed (167 BCE) later to be rebuilt in 31 BCE by the Emperor Augustus. The Dodona oracle was used by supplicants until early in the Christian era when the holy tree was cut down (CE 391) and the oracle ceased functioning.

3989 Odin (Norse):
Odin, (also known as Woden or Wotan), was the chief God of Germanic mythology. As the oldest of the Gods, he was treated by the other Gods as their father and considered to be the most learned God.

Odin's areas of control were: wisdom, learning, knowledge, magic, wit, poetry, death and warfare.

Odin was often portrayed as the grey-bearded old man with one eye, his face hidden by a hood or a broad brimmed hat, because he had cast an eye into Mimir's well in return for a drink of its "immense wisdom". Even after losing an eye, Odin's love of wisdom was so profound that he was prepared to sacrafice himself to plumb its depths. He gained insight by hanging himself for nine days from Yggdrasil, the cosmic tree (imagery: think of the movie Conan when he was tied to the Tree of Woe). This voluntary death, and his subsequent resurrection by means of magic gave Odin greater wisdom than anyone else. It is possible that the obvious parallel between this myth and the Crucifixion gave Christianity a head-start in northern Europe.
****************************************
The chief divinity of the Norse pantheon, the foremost of the Aesir. Odin is a son of Bor and Bestla. He is called Alfadir, Allfather, for he is indeed father of the Gods. With Frigg he is the father of Balder, Hod, and Hermod. He fathered Thor on the Goddess Jord; and the giantess Grid became the mother of Vidar.
Odin is a God of war and death, but also the God of poetry and wisdom. He hung for nine days, pierced by his own spear, on the world tree. Here he learned nine powerful songs, and eighteen runes. Odin can make the dead speak to question the wisest amongst them. His hall in Asgard is Valaskjalf ("shelf of the slain") where his throne Hlidskjalf is located. From this throne he observes all that happens in the nine worlds. The tidings are brought to him by his two raven Huginn and Muninn. He also resides in Valhalla, where the slain warriors are taken.
Odin's attributes are the spear Gungnir, which never misses its target, the ring Draupnir, from which every ninth night eight new rings appear, and his eight-footed steed Sleipnir. He is accompanied by the wolves Freki and Geri, to whom he gives his food for he himself consumes nothing but wine. Odin has only one eye, which blazes like the sun. His other eye he traded for a drink from the Well of Wisdom, and gained immense knowledge. On the day of the final battle, Odin will be killed by the wolf Fenrir.
He is also called Othinn, Wodan and Wotan. Some of the aliases he uses to travel icognito among mortals are Vak and Valtam. Wednesday is named after him (Wodan).
Old Norse: Odínn
****************************************
Odin (or, depending upon the dialect Woden or Wotan) was the Father of all the Gods and men. Odhinn is pictured either wearing a winged helm or a floppy hat, and a blue-grey cloak. He can travel to any realm within the 9 Nordic worlds. His two ravens, Huginn and Munin (Thought and Memory) fly over the world daily and return to tell him everything that has happened in Midgard. He is a God of magick, wisdom, wit, and learning. He too is a psychopomp; a chooser of those slain in battle. In later times, he was associated with war and bloodshed from the Viking perspective, although in earlier times, no such association was present. If anything, the wars fought by Odhinn exist strictly upon the Mental plane of awareness; appropriate for that of such a mentally polarized God. He is both the shaper of Wyrd and the bender of Orlog; again, a task only possible through the power of Mental thought and impress. It is he who sacrifices an eye at the well of Mimir to gain inner wisdom, and later hangs himself upon the World Tree Yggdrasil to gain the knowledge and power of the Runes. All of his actions are related to knowledge, wisdom, and the dissemination of ideas and concepts to help Mankind. Because there is duality in all logic and wisdom, he is seen as being duplicitous; this is illusory and it is through his actions that the best outcomes are conceived and derived. Just as a point of curiosity: in no other pantheon is the head Deity also the God of Thought and Logic. It's interesting to note that the Norse/Teutonic peoples also set such a great importance upon brainwork and logic. The day Wednesday (Wodensdaeg) is named for him.

77 Frigga (Norse):
Norse counterpart of Juno. The Norse Goddess of Marriage. Wife of Odin, the supreme Norse God. Frigga also has to do with committed relationships.
Frigga was the Goddess of love, marriage, and destiny. She was the wife of the powerful Norse God Odin. A sky Goddess, responsible for weaving the clouds (and therefore for sunshine and rain and the fertility of the crops), she was also responsible for weaving the fates, as well as a 'seer', one who knew the future though she could never change it.
Frigga (also known as Frigg, The Beloved) was the Goddess of love, marriage, and destiny. She was the wife of the powerful Norse God Odin, The All-Father.
A sky Goddess, responsible for weaving the clouds (and therefore for sunshine and rain and the fertility of the crops), she was also responsible for weaving the fates.
She was known as a seer, one who knew the future though she could never change it.
Frigga is credited with the development of runes as a tool for divination. Runes are stones marked with signs which, when selected, tell what "issues" you are currently confronting in your life and where you need to head to find the answers you seek.
A loving mother, Frigga's ability to see into the future caused her great pain as she foresaw the death of her beloved Baldur.
Even though she knew that she could not change his destiny, she simply couldn't just sit by and watch so the frantic Goddess extracted a promise from all things that they would play no role in his death. Unfortunately she overlooked one thing, the mistletoe plant, which seemed too insignificant to approach.
And this was the unraveling of her plan.
For when the malevolent trickster Loki discovered her oversight, he fashioned a dart made of the poisonous plant and, in a cruel trick, placed it in the hand of Baldur's brother Hodor who was the God of Darkness, and offered to guide his hand while teaching him to shoot darts.
And so he did, guiding the arrow directly into Baldur's heart. Frigga's tears of mourning were so bounteous that the hapless plant that had caused his death took pity. From then on it would bear milky white berries that were formed from her tears.
In some versions of the myth, the story of Baldur ends happily. He is brought back to life, and the Nordic Goddess Frigga is so grateful that she reverses the curse she had placed on "the baleful plant", changing it to a symbol of peace and love and promising a kiss to all who passed under it.
The Nordic Goddess Frigga is a Goddess who keeps us in touch with our intuitive nature and helps us make transitions and new beginning.
And as a Goddess of love and divination, Frigga helps keep our lives in alignment with our spiritual selves.

****************************************

Frigga (Frigg, Fricka), Odin's wife, was considered to be the Mother of all; and protectoress of children. She spins the sacred Distaff of life, and is said to know the future, although she will not speak of it. Some believe that Friday was named for her instead of Freya (see above), and there is considerable confusion as to "who does what" among the two.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
76 Freia (Norse):
Norse counterpart of Venus. Freia is the Norse Goddess of Love.
****************************************
The northern Europeans called their lusty Goddess Freya, which means, "mistress", and gave her name to the sixth day of the week, Friday. She was the ruling ancestress of the elder Gods, or Vanir. She and Frigga are two aspects of the Great Goddess, Freya being the maiden aspect and Frigga the mother aspect. Freya didn't discriminate in her choice of lovers: All Gods were fair game. When Freya appeared draped in her feathered cloak and wearing nothing but her magic amber necklace, none could resist her.
The Lessons of this Goddess:
Freya is here to assist you in honoring your sexuality. It is time to connect with that vital, primal, spiritual, regenerating energy and express it, whether or not you have a partner. It's about being fully present in your body. Not just the shoulders or head but the clitoris, anus, breasts, and feet. It's about allowing yourself to feel vibrant, electric energy in your sex organs and use that energy to animate your being.
Have you been feeling that sexuality is too enormous or frightening or taboo to deal with? Do you fear that living and loving your sexuality will keep you from being a "nice person"? Have the messages learned in your adolescence kept you from exploring your sexuality? (If living your sexuality brings up fear, you may want to work with Kaali, or consult a therapist) Have you been too busy to take time to give to yourself sexually? Do you feel that sex requires a partner and if you aren't with one you can't enjoy your sexuality? The Goddess says that when you live your sexuality, you open to the dynamic energy that flows through all creation. When you close down, close off, close up, you limit your possibilities for connecting with Goddess energy, which brings you greater vitality. Your path to wholeness needs to include all your partsm and your sexuality is an important piece of you.
****************************************
Norse Goddess of love and fertility; as well as the moon, the sea, the earth. She invented the runes. Cat is her sacred animal.
Freya was a warrior Goddess, a Valkyrie, and also the Goddess of sensual love. Though this captivating Goddess had numerous lovers, she was the wife of the mysterious Norse God Od.
Freya was a spectacular beauty known for her appreciation of romantic music and stunning floral arrangements. That was her softer side; she was also known as the Goddess of war and death.
As leader of the Valkyries, she had considerable power. She had the right to claim half the souls of the bravest warriors who died in battle. Actually going onto the battlefield, she would gather them up and take them back with her to spend the after-life in her home in perpetual rest and recreation. A sweet and generous woman, she always invited their wives or lovers to come and live with them.
The other half of the heroic warriors, who belonged to Odin, would be gathered up by the Valkyries and taken to Valhalla where they were able to live in comfort and honor.
She was also called upon to comfort those who were dying, to ease their transition into Valhalla (the "otherworld"), serving as a guide and companion on the journey to Valhalla for many Viking heroes who had died nobly.
When Freya and the Valkyries rode forth on their missions, their armor caused the eerily beautiful flickering light that we know as the Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights.
Freya's name was "The Lady" or "mistress", and may be the source of our name of the fifth day of the week, Friday. With her twin brother, Fryr ("The Lord"), these divine twins were the Norse deities of untamed nature.
Freya had many other lovers, although she deeply loved her consort Od. (Remember, monogamy had not been invented yet and infidelity was the social norm.) Aphrodite's amorous escapades pale by comparison with those of Freya, whose unbridled sexuality was legendary.
Usually depicted as a strawberry blonde with stunning blue eyes, none could resist her. To make matters even worse, like the Greek Goddess Aphrodite, she possessed apparel that made her irresistible to men. . . a magical necklace reputedly made of amber and rubies that was called a "brisling" or "brisingamen".
The Goddess Freya's passions were abundant, vigorous, and unrestrained. Clothed or not, she is usually shown in sensual poses.
She is often depicted riding her golden chariot through the skies, the chariot pulled by two large blue cats who were a gift from the Norse God Thor.
In archetypal psychology, dwarves often represent the parts of self that we have neglected or even rejected.
The Goddess Freya reminds us to explore and acknowledge all of our emotions, longings, and traits, even those we wish we didn't possess.
****************************************
Freya is considered to be the Goddess of Love and Beauty, but is also a warrior Goddess and one of great wisdom and magick. She and her twin brother Freyr are of a different "race" of Gods known as the Vanir. Many of the tribes venerated her higher than the Aesir, calling her "the Frowe" or "The Lady." She is known as Queen of the Valkyries, choosers of those slain in battle to bear them to Valhalla (the Norse heaven). She, therefore, is a psychopomp like Odhinn and it is said that she gets the "first pick" of the battle slain. She wears the sacred necklace Brisingamen, which she paid for by spending the night with the dwarves who wrought it from the bowels of the earth. The cat is her sacred symbol. There seems to be some confusion between herself and Frigga, Odin's wife, as they share similar functions; but Frigga seems to be strictly of the Aesir, while Freya is of the Vanic race. The day Friday (Frejyasdaeg) was named for her (some claim it was for Frigga).
****************************************
According to Norse Mythology - The Myths and Legends of the Nordic Gods by Arthur Cotterell, Freyja is the daughter of the sea God Njord and sister of Freyr. She is an important fertility Goddess and a member of the Vanir, one of the 2 branches into which the Germanic Gods were divided. After a war the Vanir seem to have been supplanted by the younger Aesir, who were led by Odin. When peace was agreed between the two sides, Njord went with Freyr and Freyja to Asgard, where they lived with the Aesir as a token of friendship.

Both Odin and Freyja took an interest in the heroic dead, dividing the slain between them at the end of every battle. Odin's share went to live in Valhalla, while Freyja's lived in her hall, Sessrumnir.

Freyja flew over the earth, sprinkling morning dew and summer sunlight behind her. She shook spring flowers from her golden hair and wept tears which turned to gold or to amber at sea.

It is possible that Freyja's lost husband Odur, or Od, of whom nothing is known but his name, was in fact Odin. For she was the Goddess of lust as well as love, a suitable partner for Odin who was the father of battles.

Freyja was said to be a sorceress who could fly in a falcon's skin and some traditions state that on her arrival in Asgard she taught the Gods the spells and charms of the Vanir (the group of Gods and Goddesses that is older than those of the Aesir).

Freyja's greatest treasure was the Brisings' necklace. The Brisingamen neckalce was crafted by four dwarfs with such artistry that it glittered like a constellation of stars in the night sky. Around Freyja's lovely neck it became an emblem of the fruits of the heavens and earth. She in her turn, produced treasures for the earth whenever she cried and Freyja wept profusely, especially during her search for her husband, Odur. When her tears fell on rock, they turned to gold. When shed at sea they turned to amber. It is said that she obtained the necklace by sleeping with the 4 dwarfs.
According to another source: The Magical Pantheons (ISBN:1-56718-861-3) is says Freya, a triple Goddess, had many attributes. She was considered a Goddess of fertility and of wealth, but also a Goddess who went to the land of the dead (or underworld), in the guise of a falcon. She would return from the underworld with prophecies. From a Kabbalistic perspective, the journey of Freya resembles the journey through Daath. Though she has some Venusian qualities, she also has some Jovian traits as well. She was the guardian of feminine magic who was always ready to unleash magical forces if it please her. Freya was a skilled warrior, as well as a Goddess of love. This seems to correspond well with the name for Chesed-Gedulah (Greatness).
According to The Rune Mysteries by Silver RavenWolf and Nigel Jackson (ISBN: 1-56718-553-3)

Freyja (Frau Frie, Farujo) - is the Golden Bride of the Vanir, and is the Supreme Goddess of the Northern Mysteries, mistress of the inner seith-fire and the religion of Wikkerie (Witchcraft). She is quite similar to Odinn, as she follows the shamanistic ways, possesses psychic abilities, and can shapeshift. As the Goddess of love, she governs sexual attraction and emotional interaction, and blesses them with herr Venusian energies. Freyja embodies the quality of Sacred Heat and the warmth of the love that unites all opposites in the world. She often appears in a wanton role in the myths. She is the Otherworld Goddess to whose abode souls travel to be renewed after death. In mediaval German tradition, she is Frau Fri, or Dame Venus, whose sacred mountain, the Venusberg, was the entrance to the Elven realms, and the geomantic Vulva of the Earth.

She is associated with the lynx, the extinct Caspian Tiger, and the witches' cat. Freyja is said to wander at night accompanied by silver-gray hares. Hers is the sacred necklace of gold called the Brisingamen, the circle of sunfire whose round is the solar year. She also possesses a shamanic Feather-Skin for traveling in the form of a hawk. Freyja rules the constellations of the Lady's Wain (Ursa Minor) and Freyja's Girdle (Belt of Orion). This Goddess favors amber, and some say that the famed Brisingamen necklace consisted of both amber and gold.
According to Silver RevanWolfe and Nigel Jackson Freyja corresponds to Venus, and her sacred day is Friday.
Other accounts say that Friday is really Frigga's day as is Venus.

However, According to a book called Creed of Iron, Freyja is associated with Monday (Moonday - which ties in with the High Priestess Tarot card). The pale moon representing the female energy of Freyja controlled Moonday and the destinies of travellers at sea, who, by wearing white garments and ornaments of silver and pearl might guarantee a safe voyage (sic - this ties in with Niord being a God of the Sea and that he is Freyja's Father. Also, the moon controls the seas/tides so there is that association as well between Father and Daughter).

Also according to Creed of Iron Freya is associated with the number 9, the color Violet, the astrological sign of Cancer (sic-another water/Niord association). On page 118 it says the name 'moon' means 'the measurer' or one who metes out time with her phases and movements (sic - this reference ties into Freya as the Daughter of Time). The word 'mon-th' in its origin means 'a measurement of the moon.' Nine is the 'holiest of numbers and the root of psycho-cosmic powers; it lends to any purpose. It is the number of life eternal and death enduring. Nine transforms what it touches, yet it remains eternal within itself. Its use abounds in myth and legend, symbolized in the Knot of the Slain and the nine worlds of the Yggdrasill.

Walpurgisnacht is known as May Eve or Beltane and according to Teutonic mythology the ceremonies of this pagen festival were held in honor of Frey and Freyja on April 30th. Also, Winter Nights October 14-15th is Freyja's feast. It marks the end of the harvest, brings focus to the bounty and honors the Goddess Freyja. The cattle who could not make it through the winter were sacraficed and the meat eaten or preserved for the winter months.

894 Erda (Norse):

The Goddess of earth and the mother of the three Norns. She has the ability to see the future and possesses great wisdom; on more than one occasion, we see Wodon asking for and receiving advice from Erda.

Seer; knowing the orgin and outcome of everything.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
1130 Skuld (Norse):

Skuld is one of the three Norns or Fates of Norse mythology, who sit beneath the great ash-tree Yggdrasil and spin the thread of destiny.
Yggdrasil is the World-tree of Norse mythos, representing the Axis Mundi (axis of the world) or Divine Center, and the Tree stretches from the Underworld to the Heavens, connecting all the Nine Worlds. Though an ash, Yggdrasil is evergreen, symbolizing its strength and changelessness, and the ash's habit of dropping its leaves in autumn while still green--i.e. they don't fade or change color - may have influenced the choice of tree.
Yggdrasil has three great roots that connect with different realms, and each have a corresponding sacred spring. The first root reaches to Niflhel, the Underworld, over which the Goddess Hel presides, and the spring is called Hvergelmir, the source of the primordial rivers. The second root connects with the land of the frost giants, Jotenheim, and the spring that rises there is called Mimir, the Well of Wisdom. The third root finds its way to the heavens, and its spring is that of the Norns. The spring is named Urd after the wisest and eldest sister, and They use it to water Yggdrasil.
The Norns are originally from the land of the Giants. Their names are Urd or Urdi ("Fate", or "That Which Was", the Norn of the Past), Verdandi or Verthandi ("Present" or "That Which is Becoming", from the same verb as Urdi's name) and Skuld ("Shall-be", or "She Who is Becoming"). They represent inexorable Fate - men and Gods alike are bound by their pronouncements. It is likely that originally there was only one, Urdi, whose name is cognate with the Anglo-Saxon wyrd, a word which became English "weird", still used as an archaic word for "fate". Later Verdandi and Skuld were added, perhaps through influence of the Greek triple Moerae or Fates.
It is said that the two eldest Norns set happy fortunes for people, while Skuld, the youngest, often changes their decrees to more tragic outcomes. Skuld as the last of the three is the Norn who fixes the length of the thread of life, or, by some accounts, unravels what Her sisters have made. She is shown veiled, as the future is unknowable. She is sometimes considered a water spirit or even a Valkyrie, one of the swan-maidens who foretell the destiny of warriors (the word valkyrja means "she who chooses warriors destined to die in battle"). She rides out with the Valkyries Gunnr and Róta to choose who shall be killed.
The Norns tend to Yggdrasil, watering it and keeping it healthy. Though four stags (with the Tolkien-y names of Dáin, Dvalin, Duneyr and Durathrór) are always nibbling at Yggdrasil's buds and new leaf-shoots, the Norns keep it green and growing.
Skuld sometimes indicates uncertainty and the unknowable future. Some things you just have to wait for; though sensible preparation is always a good idea, sometimes you just can't tell what is coming next.

167 Urda (Norse):

Urd is one of the three Norns or Fates of Norse mythology, who sit beneath the great ash-tree Yggdrasil and spin the thread of destiny.
Yggdrasil is the World-tree of Norse mythos, representing the Axis Mundi (axis of the world) or Divine Center, and the Tree stretches from the Underworld to the Heavens, connecting all the Nine Worlds. Though an ash, Yggdrasil is evergreen, symbolizing its strength and changelessness, and the ash's habit of dropping its leaves in autumn while still green--i.e. they don't fade or change color - may have influenced the choice of tree.
Yggdrasil has three great roots that connect with different realms, and each have a corresponding sacred spring. The first root reaches to Niflhel, the Underworld, over which the Goddess Hel presides, and the spring is called Hvergelmir, the source of the primordial rivers. The second root connects with the land of the frost giants, Jotenheim, and the spring that rises there is called Mimir, the Well of Wisdom. The third root finds its way to the heavens, and its spring is that of the Norns. The spring is named Urd after the wisest and eldest sister, and They use it to water Yggdrasil.
The Norns are originally from the land of the Giants. Their names are Urd or Urdi ("Fate", or "That Which Was", the Norn of the Past), Verdandi or Verthandi ("Present" or "That Which is Becoming", from the same verb as Urdi's name) and Skuld ("Shall-be", or "She Who is Becoming"). They represent inexorable Fate - men and Gods alike are bound by their pronouncements. It is likely that originally there was only one, Urdi, whose name is cognate with the Anglo-Saxon wyrd, a word which became English "weird", still used as an archaic word for "fate".

949 Hel (Norse):

Norse Goddess of Death and Rebirth.
The Goddess of the dead and the afterlife was Hel (Holle, Hulda), and was portrayed by the Vikings as being half-dead, half alive herself. The Vikings viewed her with considerable trepidation. The Dutch, Gallic, and German barbarians viewed her with some beneficence, more of a gentler form of death and transformation. She is seen by them as Mother Holle; a being of pure Nature, being helpful in times of need, but vengeful upon those who cross her or transgress natural law.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

4484 Sif (Norse):

Wife of Thor. Goddess of the Harvest.

The Rites of Odin by Ed Fitch, published in 1990 by Llewellyn has this to say: "The Goddess who was consort to Thor, and who was famed for her long, beautiful golden hair with which she preferred to work her magic and her enchantments. She is patroness of harvests and the comfortable wealth that comes from them."

The Cassell Dictionary of Norse Myth and Legend by Andy Orchard has this more lengthy description: "Mother of the archer-God Ull and (apparently later) wife fo the God Thor and mother of Thrud. Despite her evident closeness to the Gods, she is a notable omission from the lists of of Goddesses or Asynjur given by the 13th Century Icelander Snorri Sturluson. Sif appears in numerous poetic periphrases or Kennings, usually with reference to either Thor or Ull, or in the form of 'Sif's hair', evidently a kenning for gold. Snorri alone explains the kenning, at first glance little more than a compliment to a famous beauty, in literal terms, relating a tale of mischief of Loki, and the ingenuity of the Black Elves:

Loki Laufeyarson, out of sheer malice, once cut off all of Sif's hair, and when Thor heard of it, he grabbed Loki and was about to break every bone in his body until he promised to have the black elves make a head of hair for Sif from gold, one that would grow like real hair.

The emotionally charged triangle of Sif, Loki and Thor is all the more evident in the eddic poem Lokasenna, when Sif tries to placate Loki in the midst of his malicious wrangling: "Then Sif approached, offered Loki mead from a crystal cup and said: 'Hail now, Loki, accept this crystal cup, full of antique mead. Better find one woman, among the AEsir's sons, who is without fault.'

He accepted the horn and drank it down: 'You'd be the one, if only you were wary and cautious with men; but I know someone, it seems to me, who made you unfaithful to Thor, and that one was crafty-wise Loki."


And finally Northern Mysteries and Magick by Freya Aswynn and published in 1998 by Llewellyn has this to say about Sif:
"Sif, the second wife of Thor, is the lady with the corn-gold hair. Some sources state that she has the gift of prophecy, although this is not mentioned in the Eddas. From older Germanic sources it has been stated that Sif is a swan maiden and can assume this form. Having been married once to Orvandil, she can also be seen as one of the Elder race of Gods. Sif signifies summer Fertility and corn, hence Loki's cutting of her hair is interpreted as a fire destroying a corn field. Sifs name is cognate with the German sippe, meaning "kith and kin." From this we may assume that, like Frigga, Sif is a Goddess associated with peace and friendship in a happy family, and with conjugal fidelity. Runes compatible with sif are Berkana and Inguz."

3990 Heimdal (Norse):

Guardian of the Rainbow Bridge.
Heimdall is the handsome gold-toothed guardian of Bifrost, the rainbow bridge leading to Asgard, the home of the Gods. The rainbow bridge seems to be a common symbol in many religious traditions other than Norse Heathenism. In the Vedic tradition, it represents the Antakaranha of humanity (connection between the body and the soul). Other traditions see it as a message from the Gods, or a Bridge between the Gods and Mankind. This would tend to indicate that the Norse/Germanic people were aware of the presence of an overshadowing Soul for each individual, as well as a group or tribal intelligence. It is Heimdall who is to sound the signal horn to the Aesir that Ragnarok, the great destruction (or transformation?) is beginning.

256 Walpurga (Norse):
Keywords:
- a "white Goddess" who brings fertility, occult knowledge, and protection, but who is herself besieged by the forces of tumult, death and chaos
- divination, spellcraft, oracular activities, and other sorts of witchcraft
- bonfires, which are set upon sites of significance for both Godly and human activites
- processions and gatherings of "witches" upon famous witch-mountains, which may be assumed to be demonizations of former Heathen holy wights, wise-women, and hallowed sites
- forcible casting-out of Winter, illness and that which is worn out, by the May-King and/or Queen and their green-bedecked and licentious troops, bringing in their wake marriages and fertility of crops, beasts and mankind
- dancing, merry-making, and loosening of the usual rules governing sexual behavior
- blessing-processions, with sacred objects and offerings, around fields and villages, bringing fertility and protection from bad weather
****************************************
The Goddess Walpurga, or Waldborg, is an ancient Goddess of fertility who was known and worshipped in Germany long before the saint. She is the original European "Queen of the May", and possibly the sister of Eostre. The more arcane rites associated with her worship are conducted on the Eve of May Day, or "Witches Night". The tamer, more festive celebration of Spring would then ensue the next morning, on May Day proper.

Her name, often spelled anomalously, has been often misinterpreted as Wæl - Burga, "Stronghold of the Slain". A closer look at the archaic German spelling Walborg, gives a clue as to the original meaning, "Forest-Defense" or even "Forest-hill". Interestingly, the former interpretation seems to provide insight into her nature and function, whereas the latter describes prescisely where her followers chose to gather in old times to worship her! This being said, we will henceforward refer to the Anglo-Saxon Goddess asWealdbeorh, for clarity.

The Myth of Wealdbeorh

Folklorist EL Rochholz describes the Goddess as carrying a three-cornered mirror with which she could fortell the future, as well as a spindle. These objects are imbued with deep symbolism in Germanic mythology, and hint at a connection with Wyrd, and also with other ancestal Goddesses andIdesi, or matrons. The spindle is symbolic of both houshold industry and fertility, as it is used in the spinning of flax into cloth. She is also described as being a "white Goddess", crowned and shod with fire.
Regarding her feast-day, Grimm tells us:

"We know that all over Germany a grand annual excursion of witches is placed on the first night in May, i.e. on the date of the sacrificial feast and the old May-gathering of the people. On the first of May, of all days, the periodical assizes continued for many centuries to be held; on that day came the merry May-ridings, and the kindling of the sacred fire: it was one of the highest days in all heathenism. ...The witches invariably resort to places where formerly justice was administered, or sacrifices were offered. ...Almost all the witch-mountains were once hills of sacrifice, boundary-hills, or salt-hills."

German folk-lore tells that Waldborg is pursued by the Wild Hunt, and in her flight she is said to give her favor to those who shelter her. There is a tale concerning this, that that while fleeing the Wild Hunt, Wealdbeorh came upon a farmer and begged him to hide her in a sheaf of grain. When the Wild Hunt had passed the next morning, the Goddess was gone, but the farmer's fields had been sprinkled with gold! To this day, the sheaf of grain remains a symbol of Wealdbeorh. With the coming of warm weather, Wealdbeorh's power waxes, and even today in the Harz Mountains of Germany, it is customary to leave the windows of the home open during May, so the "White Queen of the May" could take refuge inside.

Of course, the Goddess does have her "dark side" as well. In addition to the public festivities on May Day, it is said that sorcerors and wise-women had their own part to play in the Spring Festival, giving birth to the ominous tales of Walpurgisnacht, or Witches Night. These sorcerors would gather on hilltops in the forests of Germania, and enact fertility rites, as well as divining the future. Bonfires would lit upon the hilltops, the "Fires of May", a tradition that persists in Germany to this day, where Walpurisnacht is considered to be a more ominous night than Halloween.

3258 Somnium:
Somnium (Latin for The Dream) is a fantasy written between 1620 and 1630 by Johannes Kepler in which a student of Tycho Brahe is transported to the Moon by occult forces. It is considered the first serious scientific treatise on lunar astronomy. Carl Sagan and Isaac Asimov have referred to it as the first work of science fiction.
Somnium began as a student dissertation in which Kepler defended the Copernican doctrine of the motion of the Earth, suggesting that an observer on the Moon would find the planet's movements as clearly visible as the Moon's activity is to the Earth's inhabitants. Nearly 20 years later, Kepler added the dream framework, and after another decade, he drafted a series of explanatory notes reflecting upon his turbulent career and the stages of his intellectual development. The book was edited by his heirs, including Jacob Bartsch, after Kepler's death in 1630, and was published posthumously in 1634.

2522 Triglav (Slavic):
Triglav (literally threehead) is a complex Slavic mythology, similar in nature to the Trinity in Christianity. Often Triglav is the same deity as Troyan.
Triglav is a unity of three Gods. The exact members of the trinity vary by place and time. Earlier Triglav included Svarog, Perun and Dajbog. Later Dajbog was replaced by Svetovid or by Veles. Triglav is usually described as a fusion of these Gods. More rarely he is their son. Triglav may also be a unity of lesser Gods (Lesser Triglav). Usually each member of Triglav is a ruler of a single realm, such as heaven or underworld. In some legends Triglav is veiled completely, so holy that he cannot see the evil deeds of men. He rarely appears around mortals.
The God Triglav simulacrum had three golden heads; a veil covered his eyes and mouth. The priests said that if he did not see and speak, he could ignore the human sins. Triglav is depicted as a three-headed man sometimes with bands of (gold) blindfolds over his eyes, or a man with three goat heads. The three heads represent his three dominations: Heaven, Earth and the Underworld. Some priests said that Triglav has three heads because he rules all three kingdoms (sky, earth and hell) and has a binding over his eyes so he could not see people's sins. His eyes are said to possess great power (that's why all eyes on his statues are covered).
Triglav is associated within some mythos as being the God of Heaven, Earth and the Underworld. He is the highest God of all said oracles at Szczecin, Poland, where several Triglav temples existed. He was interpreted from the behavior of a black horse. His temple was encircled by a sacred hurst and grassland, in which a black horse pastured. The horse was used for presages. This happened in such a manner: the horse was led through nine lances, fixed in the soil; if he did not touch one, the presage was favourable, and vice versa.

1930 Lucifer (Roman):
The name 'Lucifer' means light-bearer.
In Roman astronomy, Lucifer was the name given to the morning star (the star we now know by another Roman name, Venus). The morning star appears in the heavens just before dawn, heralding the rising sun. The name derives from the Latin term lucem ferre, bringer, or bearer, of light." In the Hebrew text the expression used to describe the Babylonian king before his death is Helal, son of Shahar, which can best be translated as "Day star, son of the Dawn." The name evokes the golden glitter of a proud king's dress and court (much as his personal splendor earned for King Louis XIV of France the appellation, "The Sun King").

Lilith:
Lilith is one of the most ancient aspects of the Great Goddess.
She inhabits the astral or psychic plane, the middle region around the spine which connects the snake (kundalini) and the bird (consciousness).
Lilith show that the energies of destruction can be transmuted and taken up into creative destructuring of the old civilization, already outgrown.
Imagine Lilith as the deep-rooted Shekinah, like the roots of the tree seeking sustinance in the soil, while Sophia is the sky-reaching branches and fruits.
Lilith challenges both men and women to connect with their instinctive passion for life, for this natural force if denied, unfulfilled, caged or exiled, turns destructive.
Lilith is sometimes referred to as the "hand of Innana" or the "mirror opposite of Innana", also, "the Maid of Desolution" who dances in the ruins of cities and "the little girl left out". Other names include: Anthichthon, Agrat, Mahalat and Druj.

Also associated with the fixed star Agol in the constellation of Perseus, the most evil star, also called the eye/head of Medusa.
****************************************
Lilith was originally the Sumerian Queen of Heaven, A Goddess older than Inanna. The Hebrews took the Goddess and transformed her into the first wife of Adam, who refused to lie beneath him when having intercourse. She insisted that because they were created equal, they needed to have sex equally. When Adam refused, she left him. Thereafter, in Jewish mythology, she was described as a demon.
The Lessons of this Goddess:
Lilith appears to tell you to take back your power.. Where are the places you have lost or given away your power? What beliefs do you hold that deny your power? Have you been told that powerful women never find mates? Or that women can't have power because that would make them unfeminine? Have you been teased, shunned, ostracized by others when you've stepped into your power? Are you afraid of misusing your power to dominate or maniputlate? The Goddess says that the way to wholeness for you now lies in acknowledging that you're not connecting with your power, then second coming to terms with and accepting your power.
****************************************

The Dark Goddess:

In the beginning was the Great Goddess, and the Goddess was the Earth, and the Earth was the Goddess. The origins of the cult of the Great Goddess lie hidden in the dim twilight of prehistoric time. The Goddess ruled for hundreds of thousands of years. In the course of time, the Mother-Goddess was overthrown and driven under, and the triumph of the most patriarchal of archetypes - Jahwe, God the Father, Allah - was complete in the Judaic, Christian and Moslem worlds. It was only in the tamed form of Mary, Mother of God, that some aspects of the Mother Goddess were permitted to survive. Various Black Madonnas in ancient sanctuaries still bear witness to her.
The wealth of information available on Lilith indicates considerable fascination and interest in this mythological figure, with numerous versions of her story in both Hebrew and Sumerian. Consort to both the devil and God himself, she is enigmatic and mysterious.
Probably the earliest version of Lilith is from Mesopotamia in the 13 -15th centuries BC where she was the Goddess of Death in the form of an owl. She was called Lilith because it means "screech owl". The version of Lilith we know today is as the first wife of Adam, before Eve, although she is not mentioned in the Bible or in ancient Hebrew religious writings. This version seems to come from a medieval writing that purports to be part of Hebrew writings but is not. The writer probably took the older legend and Christianized it by making it part of a Bible story. Lilith became the woman from hell, the anti-female. As the first wife of Adam she refused to be subordinate to him. She refused to lie beneath him in sexual relations. She wanted to lie side by side or on top. When he tried to force her she used her powers to fly away. This part of her story has interested many women today. They like to think of Lilith as a feminist heroine, saying she was courageous and asserting her equality. However, in the original myth she was more a symbol of the psychologically damaged. If you interpret the Liliths in a chart as heroic or admirable it will not be accurate. The Liliths in your chart operate as places where you are having trouble, where you don't fit in with the norm.

According to Hebrew mythology, Lilith was Adam's first wife and was created equal to Adam, created from the ground in the same way that he was. Being his equal, she refused to be subordinate and ultimately left the Garden of Eden. She is the original woman, who refused to be subjugated to a man's desires. After Adam refused to have her as his equal, she ran off in a rage and left the Garden of Eden. Some accounts say that she flew away. After leaving Eden she lived in caves near the Red Sea where she took up with demons she desired and mated with many of them. At first, Adam was upset and prayed to God to bring her back. God sent three angels named Sanvi, Sansanvi, and Semangilaf to get her to go back to him but she didn't obey, so God started killing her children at the rate of 100 per day. She went mad with grief and, it is said, she would come in the night for her revenge, taking other people's babies and killing them, and giving men wet dreams to sap their strength. Lilith was also a threat to pregnant women and was blamed for causing miscarriages. Thus, she is known as a demoness, the killer of infants in their cradles. Amulets were worn to ward her off (amulets with inscriptions for protection against Lilith are found in museums to this day all over the world).
"Said the Holy One to Adam, 'If she agrees to come back, fine. If not she must permit one hundred of her children to die every day.' The angels left God and pursued Lilith, whom they overtook in the midst of the sea, in the mighty waters wherein the Egyptians were destined to drown. They told her God's word, but she did not wish to return. The angels said, 'We shall drown you in the sea.'
"'Leave me!' she said. 'I was created only to cause sickness to infants. If the infant is male, I have dominion over him for eight days after his birth, and if female, for twenty days.'
"When the angels heard Lilith's words, they insisted she go back. But she swore to them by the name of the living and eternal God: 'Whenever I see you or your names or your forms in an amulet, I will have no power over that infant.' She also agreed to have one hundred of her children die every day. Accordingly, every day one hundred demons perish, and for the same reason, we write the angels' names on the amulets of young children. When Lilith sees their names, she remembers her oath, and the child recovers."
Painful issues surrounding children, birth, unsuitable sexual partners and parts of your life where you just can't function like others do are Lilith issues.
There is nothing more demonstrative of female energy and power than that of giving birth. Lilith sabotages this positive expression of female energy as much as she's a proponent of lust versus love. For example, women who have been subjected to unpleasant birth experiences in hospitals where they are forced to follow unnatural routines, usually devised by men, have encountered a form of Lilith's energy. Lilith is the perpetrator of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), abortion, and any type of infanticide. This could even include the increased practice of imposing cesarean sections when a vaginal birth could be safely accomplished, sometimes simply for the doctor's convenience, which not only takes the power of giving birth away from the woman but has been shown to result in more infant deaths than vaginal births. Lilith is vicious and vengeful in the most destructive way, particularly targeting her wrath on women who personify Eve's attitude of submission and the human children they bear.
When Lilith refused to return to Adam, submissive Eve was created from his rib and given to him as his new wife. Lilith was very upset, jealous and angered and, according to some versions of the myth, Lilith turned herself into a snake and returned in the form of a serpent to the garden of Eden where she tempted Eve to eat the apple. It's interesting to note that a substantial amount of artwork represents the infamous snake as part female. Sexual being that she is, is it any wonder that she's personified as the dispenser of the forbidden fruit?
"Awake, O thou whom my soul loveth and come,
Come into my garden, where the spices flow out.
Come into your garden and eat the pleasant fruits.
Come to the temple for the holy rites of love.
Set me as a seal upon thine heart.
Set your soul free."

Her prophecy:
I hurt. I am ill. What is this place where the children live in cement boxes and eat chemicals for food? The land is burning with the raging fires of war. My trees are cut down, ruthlessly uprooted; animals thanklessly consumed; my life blood spilled out for greed. I cannot live here. I must go.... But the flood plains of my heart will pour out over the land and you will hear my voice in the howling winds and the hurricanes in the earthquakes and the volcanoes!
She is also described as:
"A female tiger. She is magnificent, powerful. We treat her with respect, awe, carefully so as not to arouse her anger. She can hurt, but we are allowed to stroke her. Somehow she is surrounded by a round enclosure, trapped. A number of male cats come in and rape her. She is covered in blood after the second. After that, she is left encaged, her heart destroyed. Anyone who approaches her is stopped by a terrible, hateful, warning snarl. She is dangerous, ferocious, destructive, defensive. Why such a royal upbringing to be led to this fate?"
****************************************
In the Sumerian version, recorded on clay tablets around 2000 BC, Lilith was a handmaiden of Inanna whose task was to retrieve men from the fields and bring them to the temple at Erech for sacred, sexual customs. She was also portrayed as "the dark maid" who built her home in the trunk of Inanna's hallupu tree, which the queen had rescued from the Euphrates River where it had been uprooted by the South Wind. Hoping to grow it to maturity and then use the wood for a throne and a bed, she tended the tree lovingly. However, ten years later when she hoped to harvest the tree, according to the translation made by Samuel Kramer, this is what happened:
"But in the meantime, she found to her dismay that her hopes could not be fulfilled because during that time a dragon had built its nest at the foot of the tree, the Zu-bird was raising its young in the crown, and the demon Lilith had built her house in the middle. But Gilgamesh, who had heard of Inanna's plight, came to her rescue. He took his heavy shield, killed the dragon with his heavy bronze axe, which weighed seven talents and seven minas. Then the Zu-bird flew into the mountains with its young, while Lilith, petrified with fear, tore down her house and fled into the wilderness."
****************************************
Other traditions claim that she became a succubus, a winged woman with talons for feet. Many claim the verse found in Isaiah 34:14 of the Old Testament refers to Lilith when it mentions a screech owl, an alternate translation of her name. There are apparently numerous references to her in the Talmud and Hebrew mystical beliefs as well.
****************************************
Lilith is frequently associated with witchcraft and the dark arts, another manifestation of her power. There is no simpler example of this than the story of Snow White. Here we have the evil step-mother/Queen who's trying to destroy the competition, an innocent girl who represents not only beauty, but righteous womanhood, with an apple, no less; no symbolism there. Even more interesting is the fact that the evil Queen was conversing with a mirror since some myths associate Lilith with ruling the land on the other side of the mirror. Note how Snow White used feminine kindness and charm to control seven, miniature men. Another one with Lilith overtones is Sleeping Beauty. Also Endora, Samantha's mother, in the 1960s TV series, "Bewitched."
Lilith magnifies revenge, rage, witches, psychics, the temptress and the shadow. She affects dreams, especially sexual ones, and is an influence in trances, hypnotism, the channeling of entities, interdimensional beings, and possession. During the medieval period, Lilith was the woman of the witches. In the last centuries she has been connected the femme fatale - the sexually powerful woman.
Lilith often represents the dark and frightening side of a woman: the archetype of "other women", the temptress, the femme fatale. She's stainless steel estrogen with a razor's edge, a virtual vortex of lustful, sexual energy with the intense desire to fulfill her driven desires. Any threat or discipline imposed on her sexual self-_expression is violently repelled and rejected. Her hatred of men is clearly reflected in the biblical tale of Salome, daughter of Herod, and her means for causing the horrific death by decapitation of John the Baptist.
Lilith is frequently adopted as a patroness by militant women's liberation movements whose goal is to emasculate men. We're not talking about women's rights or fairness here, but the premise that males are the enemy. She uses her sexuality to get what she wants and to manipulate the opposite gender. These are the women that use sexual favors to get through school or obtain high corporate positions. It's feminine mystique gone bad as Lilith abhors sex in it's proper place as a means of emotional _expression between two caring partners and/or to create life.
This is the opposite pole from the stance maintained by Juno as the representation of the dedicated wife. Lilith has an untamed, ferocious quality while Juno, no matter how enraged or vindictive she becomes, has a certain civilized restraint that Lilith never displays. When Zeus cheated on Juno, her revenge was certainly violent, but it didn't have the visceral, destructive edge of Lilith's, whose resentment was more intense. Juno had been betrayed by her husband, who went off bedding other women, but that was who and what Zeus was. Monogamy wasn't in his vocabulary and being controlled, much less giving into his wife's demands, wasn't an option. Zeus personifies the male reaction to female control whereas Lilith personifies the female reaction to male control. Juno was vengeful because she cared. Lilith is all about destructive revenge and she doesn't care if she's in the middle of the detonation as long as her targets suffer sufficient misery as well.
Lilith's female passion is the opposite pole of the power of creation. She represents sexual pleasure for pleasure's sake as well as everything men feared in the feminine domain, which led to Jewish, Moslem, and Christian cultures all condemning sexual pleasures, except as necessary for procreation. When you consider Middle Eastern rituals of female circumcision, it's hard to miss the Lilith overtones in that sordid practice. It's the difference between the life giving power of the Sun versus the destructive power of a nuclear bomb. As with all characteristics, your greatest strength and greatest weakness are simply the positive and negative manifestation of the same trait.
****************************************
The name Lilith is derived from the old Semitic word for night, "lel" or "lelath", in Arabic "laylah," which also means "ghost" or "spectre" in Hebrew. She is associated with the Death card in Tarot. She is also associated with the Owl, representing secrecy and wisdom, and she is frequently connected with cats.
Lilith is one of the dark Goddesses, like Isis, Persephone, Hecate, Athena, Minerva and Kali, expressing the feminine power of the divine creative, transformative force. She was known to the Chaldean astrologers; the Egyptians called her Nephthys. If we follow their trail back in time, down to the roots to find the source of their darkness, of the fear and negative side they typically represent in mythologies, we often discover not only a major shift in the collective human image of the feminine, but also some deep undercurrent, some hidden essence that needs to be acknowledged and healed in our personal lives.
Lilith is perhaps best understood in contrast to her counterpart, the visible Moon, Luna. Luna receives her self-fulfillment and self-definition through the nurturing of others. Lilith is self-fulfilled and self-defined. Luna represents the visible emotions; Lilith is those emotions which remain hidden or secret. Lilith lives behind-the-scenes, usually undetected. She can be sneaky or deceptive, but she can also indicate our ability to be subtle, to guide and manage events and people without being intrusive. She is our ability to be private, and her placement in the chart will tell you what the native feels most secretive about. As a Moon, Lilith is also associated with mothering, but she is the strength of a mother protecting her cubs. Luna is soft and kind and nurturing. Lilith is strong, a disciplinarian, and will kill any who threaten the well-being of her offspring. Lilith is protective and self-protective.
She protects herself from her own toxic emotions, becoming the guardian of shame, guilt, hatred, vengefulness, bitterness, envy, jealousy. We look for Lilith in our charts to discover which defense mechanisms we employ to hide our wounding.

There are 3 astrological points with the name Lilith: Black Moon Lilith, Dark Moon Lilith and 1181 asteroid Lilith. They are all called Lilith because the way you interpret them in a chart is related to the Lilith story.
The various astrological forms of Lilith will indicate how and where this raw, female energy is released. Lilith is somewhere in everyone's chart, but its location and aspects to other planets and asteroids determine her power, just like any other astrological entity. Frater RIKB has written a comprehensive essay on Lilith that also includes tabulated data on the location and aspects to Lilith of various women who were famous and powerful. This fascinating treatise demonstrates that Lilith energy, like any other, can be used in a powerful yet nondestructive manner. The house placement is very apropos, with many of those whose feminism was expressed via the written word having Lilith in the 9th House of publication.

Understanding and finding Lilith's position in your natal chart is very important. It can help you become aware of your "dark side" and bring self defeating patterns and unhealthy behavior to light. This is what I call your "sensitive point." If you have Lilith conjuncting your sun, moon, rising sign or midheaven of your chart you grab attention when you walk into a room. You are capable of hypnotizing people with your personality. your magnetism is strong.
Lilith's placement in the chart is especially important to women, and represents the power of the original woman. In a woman's chart, Lilith represents which part of life the woman plays a strong role in. Lilith is very evident and dominant in charts of powerful, creative women; Those who are quite successful yet vulnerable and sensitive. Many have unconventional relationships. For women Lilith represents the power she has in her chart. In female nativities, a strongly placed Lilith shows consciousness of one's instincts, and confident governance of one's sexuality and childbirth needs; while more negative manifestations of the placement of Lilith can be social isolation stemming from unorthodox manners of functioning, and unsuitable sexual partners.
In a man's chart, Lilith reveals the type of woman he fears and the type that can drive him over the edge, often to despair. Men...have you ever met a woman that drove you over the edge? She was your Lilith and I bet she shows up in your chart! The ideal position for Lilith in a male chart has an effect that would attract strong and beautiful to him. In a man's chart, Lilith often indicates the area in which he'll have to deal with power issues with women. For example, in the 4th House it may mean he has an extremely domineering or just plain bitchy mother and/or wife. In the 10th House, he may have to deal with powerful women in his career. As expected, it can also be a factor in sexual preference. Obviously someone who either hates or fears someone of the opposite gender is going to have a hard time sustaining a healthy relationship with one, and an afflicted Lilith in the birth chart could certainly push someone in that direction. In a man's chart, Lilith's placement will reveal the hidden power struggles or other issues he may have, resolved or unresolved, with the women in his life. For men, Lilith may also represent hidden powers struggles and unresolved issues with the women in his life. In male nativities, a strongly placed Lilith attracts the individual to equal, fair relationships with strong females, who in turn are attracted to such types as him.
For both sexes Lilith shows us what we are most secretive about. Look for Lilith in your chart to see what defense mechanisms you use to hide any emotional wounding. By making peace with and embracing our own darkest emotions, we can integrate ourselves. Lilith is one of the keys in astrology which can help us attain that goal. Lilith is about unfilled wishes. She represents the suppressed shadow side of our personality, our agony and painful experiences. If she is acknowledged and understood, we can gain much from her because then we can see what it is we need to change about ourselves. Lilith can lead us to self rejuvenation and release.
Lilith has a strong influence on synastry. Lilith in everyone's chart represents sexual passion. A Lilith-influenced relationship will be wild and untamed, just as she is. Those involved will have an incredibly strong sexual attraction to one another and nothing will keep them apart. Nothing. More often than not, these affairs don't end well, either, as Lilith goes off laughing into the night. (Myths frequently mention her laugh.) Remember the movie "Fatal Attraction?" Transits can do the same thing. Logic will absolutely not apply and nothing anyone tells them will have any effect on deterring the lovers unless they drag one or both of them off somewhere and lock them up until it passes. If the relationship was triggered by a transit and it continues when the transit has receded, the parties involved will basically have to start all over to make it work, as they'll probably both be different people than they were when they met. As they stand in the rubble that remains of their life their memory of the entire thing is likely to be "Damn, that was hot, but what was I thinking?"
________________________________________________________________
Black Moon Lilith (Lunar Apogee):
Perhaps the most subtle and intriguing of the three Liliths, Black Moon Lilith (BML) is not a physical body but an abstract, geometrical point, like the Ascendant or the Vertex. It is the second center of the Moon's elliptical orbit around the Earth. An ellipse has two centers, rather than one like perfect circle. The Earth is one center and Black Moon Lilith is the other. Another way to describe this point is as the apogee of the Moon's orbit - the place where it is the farthest from Earth.
Black Moon, that point in space about which the Moon revolves, has been compared to Earth's shadow sister. It doesn't physically exist in a material sense, yet according to Kepler's Laws of planetary motion, it is an important point in the Moon's orbital dynamics. No one can tell you why, only that it is, and if you want to wax philosophical about it, you could even speculate that the second focus is a spiritual center that controls the unseen parts of our emotional makeup whereas the visible Moon controls the part we express. It could even be compared to a reflection, similar to the other side of the mirror, Lilith's domain, of those parts of us we keep suppressed and hidden, those fantasies we'd never admit to having so as to maintain our civilized facade.
Since the Moon has an elliptical (oval) orbit and a wobbly one at that, the distance the Moon is from the Earth varies. The lunar apogee is the mathematical point in the sky where the Moon is farthest from the Earth. In the Moon's orbit of the Earth it periodically reaches its closest distance (Lunar Perigee or "Priapus") and then its furthest distance (Lunar Apogee). The longitude of its apogee is known as Lilith or Black Moon Lilith. The reason this point is called Lilith is because in the Lilith story she was acting out the difficult (distant) part of the Moon, in murderous rage, vindictiveness, and insanity. Lilith in this sense is a much more major astrological consideration than either the 1181 asteroid Lilith or the 'dark Moon' Lilith. The glyph for Black Moon Lilith is a black crescent pointing east, similar to a 3rd quarter Moon, but with a cross underneath.
The geocentric period of apogee Lilith is about nine years. There are two different locations that vary up to 30 degrees, based on how Black Moon Lilith is calculated. One is the "true" position, the other its "mean" position, similar to the way the Moon's nodes are calculated as "mean" or "true". But in the case of the Black Moon there can be as much as 30 degrees difference between the mean and true so it is possible for them to be in different signs or houses. The mean Black Moon moves about 39 degrees per year or about 3 degrees 8 min per month and does not retrograde. The true Black Moon retrogrades a lot and can move anywhere from 9 degrees to well over 70 degrees per year. It also can move up to 4 degrees per day or stay at the same degree for several days. Deciding which to use is easier if you look at charts of people you know where the mean and true are in different signs and houses. The true is the more accurate placement but an ephemeris for it has only been available for about 10 years so not as much work has been done using it. The ephemeris for the mean has been available for about 100 years and astrologers in Europe have been using it almost that long. That's why you see the mean used more in articles and books. Some have professed better results with the mean position, though others find the true position shows up more; the conservative approach would be to assume they both have bearing. The differences between them, as far as astrological delineation is concerned, are undoubtedly subtle and haven't as yet been identified.
It appears that the mean version relates strongly to synastry whereas the true version relates more to the person's Natal Chart and any aspects to cusps and other heavenly bodies.

Psychologist Robert Sardello, author of Facing the World with Soul, tells a story of Sophia, the feminine divine essence, always seeking union with the Spirit of God. The light of God was so brilliant, she was moving toward that, attracted to it. Then she was distracted by an equally bright light. She found herself trapped inside Earth, incarnated in physical matter, that is equally as divine. This central flame is the heart of Earth and sustains the spiritual life of Earth, as the materiality of earth nurtures and sustains our bodies. This flame reaches out from the center of Earth through all living beings, ever longing to merge with the Spirit of God. Found in the darkness, we seek her in the deepest recesses of our Selves. This is the impulse for the sacred inner marriage.
The center of gravity between the Earth and Moon is inside the Earth. As part of the Earth-Moon system, Black Moon is a point or energetic vortex intimately bound to the center of the Earth. Black Moon and Earth are the two centers or the double center, around which the Moon orbits. Lilith is a twin to the core energy of the Earth, the deep heart of fire. This is the central fire that feeds and sustains our Earth bodies. The creative vitality of the Sun gives life to the Earth and fuels this central core fire. The center of gravity between the Moon and Earth is within the Earth. It is as if Black Moon pulls away from that center and brings the Moon closer to the Sun, Black Moon being the furthest point of the Moon from Earth.


As a center point of the Moon's orbit, Black Moon Lilith works in relationship with the Earth-Moon system and with the Sun. As a second center of reference, she gives a sense of rhythm to the Earth, taking the dynamics of relationship beyond the personal Moon-Venus energies into subtle dimensions that are essential to our reasons for being on and of Earth. Representing the closest reach of the Moon to the Sun, she is also a reference point in our personal lives that brings us into relationship with the heart of our Sun-fueled experience on Earth, an emotional intelligence informed by the wisdom of earthy instinct. Since our culture has lost, even rejected as Lilith was rejected, this kind of natural wisdom is more difficult to tap into and trust.
In this regard, Black Moon Lilith can have a strong impact of relationship dynamics. Relationships that involve Lilith energy are initiatory, soul-to-soul meetings that open into a deeper center where personal and impersonal experience merge. Can we trust this energy that is unraveling our edges, tapping into such a deep well? Can we trust ourselves?
The Black Moon point is where we are lured into the mystery. She insists that we feel through, let go, surrender to something essential and transparent in us that is primary, the bedrock beneath the shifting sands, the passion of the soul. It is a corridor into the heart through which we are lured to discover our deepest truth, the longings and yearnings of our souls and thereby leading us to the deeper truth within our heart, the longings and yearnings of our souls.

In Unremembered Country, Susan Griffin beautifully articulates the essence of this core energy:
"As I go into the Earth, she pierces my heart. As I penetrate further, she unveils me. When I have reached her center, I am weeping openly. I have known her all my life, yet she reveals stories to me, and these stories are revelations and I am transformed. Each time I go to her I am born like this. Her renewal washes over me endlessly, her wounds caress me; I become aware of all that has come between us, of the noise between us, the blindness, of something sleeping between us. Now my body reaches out to her."

Black Moon Lilith symbolizes a central motivating factor that is subtle, unseen but felt. This Lilith taps into an urgent desire of the soul that seeks dramatization in life and will brook no denial. In a time such as ours of potent change, the Black Moon, with its underlying creative life force and spiritual impulse, illumines the inner pathway with the most heart for each seeker of Truth and Love.
Black Moon Lilith Keywords:
danger, darkness, deceit, destruction, devious, devouring, dreams, emptiness, enchantress, envy, fears, guilt, hatred, imagination, isolation, jealousy, magic, marriage-wrecker, mystery, night, poison, secrets, seduction, shame, the "other woman" who thinks a man needs rescuing from the "chains" of his partner, vengefulness.
The placement of Black Moon Lilith shows the area of our lives where we can be inspired to find a completely new or alternative way to express and define the personal empowerment emanating from our feminine nature. It indicates where a cycle of destruction and release of old images can result in a renewed sense of personal freedom and power. It can bestow great rewards if we are willing to pay the painful price of letting go. One must make a difficult choice or a sacrifice to overcome the urge to conform. Black Moon Lilith signifies the emotional intelligence informed by the wisdom of earthly instinct. It is where we are lured into our more self-centered illusions for the purpose of purging negative desires. An energy vortex that cuts through the veils of illusion with the sword of truth. Black Moon Lilith is where we are lured into our more self-centered illusions for the purpose of purging negative desires, thereby leading us to the deeper truth within our hearts, the longings and yearnings of our souls. Black Moon Lilith represents our deepest (often unconscious) fears and illusions; something we can hardly control or cannot control at all; very often it is where the wrong seems so right (positive aspects) and vice versa (negative aspects).
Black Moon Lilith/Lunar Apogee is believed to be a point of instinctive and emotional intelligence, whereby individuals can gain contact with and feel their inner heartfelt truths and soul longings and passions. Since at Lilith the Moon is more distant from the Earth than usual, the Sun gains relative prominence, and Lilith is also associated with the unveiling of illusions, the illumination of self-defeating behaviour patterns, the exorcism of self-centred desires, and the coming into closer contact with Earth wisdom. A strongly placed Lilith favours art, creativity, detachment from social norms, emotional sensitivity and vulnerability, an uncompromising will, and unconventional relationships. Natal apogee Lilith retrograde is thought to offer past life indications judged by its sign and house placement.
These things do not only apply to women, they apply to men as well, as the Black Moon is also their feminine side.

Only conjunctions and oppositions to apogee Lilith within a three degree orb are considered in interpretation. Such aspects to Sun, Mercury or Venus in females are thought to heighten the _expression of their sexuality in their public image; those to the Moon can indicate difficulties connected with pregnancy and childbirth; and those to Mars favour the _expression of independence, sometimes attracting opposition from men.

Transits from apogee Lilith bring pain and uncomfortable, uncontrolled emotions in matters connected with the transited planet, and sometimes manifest as vengefulness.

Black Moon Lilith has a strong impact on relationship dynamics. In synastric contacts, apogee Lilith brings a sense of soul connection characterised by a mergeance of personal and impersonal attributes, but with an inclination towards intensity, the uncovering of deep-seated desires, and some danger of obsessiveness and pain. A darker and more hidden sexuality, a promise of high levels of sexual satisfaction by allowing hidden self/ fantasies to emerge in sexual _expression. This one can take you to the best sex you have ever had, yet veering toward the more positive energy of this is advised, so treat each other with respect.
________________________________________________________________
Dark Moon Lilith:
Unlike Black Moon Lilith, Dark Moon Lilith, that mysterious, unconfirmed second satellite of the Earth, is a real body in the sky, a second Moon to the Earth that doesn't reflect light, hence the name Dark Moon. There is some controversy over whether it is really there since it can only be seen as a spot moving across the Sun. However, there have been sightings since the 1600's as detailed in Delphine Jay's book, Interpreting Lilith. Dr. Georges Waltemath, an astronomer, documented it in 1898 and came up with calculations which gave it an orbit of 119 days around the Earth.
The glyph for Dark Moon Lilith is a zero bisected by a diagonal line from bottom left to top right that extends beyond its limits.
Dark Moon Lilith is like a sphere of dust, absorbing light rather than reflecting it. She holds in her darkness. Sister of our Eve-like Moon, they are like the bright Sumerian Goddess Inanna and her dark sister, Ereshkigal, exiled in the underworld. After her honeymoon fails to provide the happily-ever-after romantic dream, Inanna descends to her sister's realm, the underworld of the unconscious where the rejected Ereshkigal cries in pain and anger. The Dark Goddess takes one look at her luminous, beautiful sister who has gathered all the light and fixes her with the eye of death, freezing the growth of consciousness in the paralysis of repressed pain. Giving _expression to the pain in some form releases us from our (often self-imposed) imprisonment in negative emotions. Lilith shows us the way, but she does not come out gently from behind her veil of night.
Dark Moon Lilith also symbolizes the objective thinking approach, objectivity, and a creative instinct that seeks impersonal _expression through aesthetic, creative, mental or spiritual outlets. Dark Moon Lilith can be interpreted similarly to the other Liliths. Delphine Jay says Dark Moon Lilith is a place where you must operate impersonally because operating personally there will never be successful. According to Delphine Jay's research, the effect of Dark Moon Lilith is distinctly impersonal rather than subjective as with the Moon. Whereas the reflective Moon represents personal, subjective feelings, the Dark Moon represents a primal, objective, impersonal instinct that seeks identification beyond the physical and emotional realms. "This is the way it must be," she says clearly and definitively, like one of the Fates, the triple Goddesses of Karma. When her _expression is denied or self-centered, she can be quite negative; when the emotional content is channelized into higher centers, she adds power to creative, mental or aesthetic _expression, even to spiritual practice. "Lilith strictly symbolizes the objective thinking approach. Anything less is unsuccessful." The Dark Moon point is where we are lured into our more self-centered illusions for the purpose of purging negative desires and grow beyond our habitual patterns of early Moon conditioning.
The Dark Moon specializes talent and greatly sharpens the mind, releasing a unique social talent by house position and a specialty interest by sign that seeks outlet as, in or through the vocation. When negative, Dark Moon Lilith brings susceptibility to strange influences, unusual fascinations, infatuations and/or compulsions.
Dark Moon Lilith rules a more sophisticated creative desire than the Moon. It appears to be a mode of transmission for the awakening and impersonalizing influence of Uranus and the transformational ray of Pluto and describes the impersonal needs of the social-collective self. It is an emotionally maturing force, and indicates where one must overcome naive or childish expectancies. Dark Moon Lilith moves one to extremes, either positive or negative. It represents raw urges that are for the most part hidden in the personal orientation lest the individual expose part of him/herself that he/she does not understand, making one vulnerable or to appear strangely different.
The Dark Moon is also representative of the darker, negative side of our nature. It is the hidden depths that we know exist yet we prefer not to acknowledge. It is subtle on the surface, yet profound beneath. It is the foundations of our personality and the shocking truth that we often deny and project onto others instead - the refusal to see what is really within ourselves, the subtle refusal to see what part we may have played in some unpleasant drama of our lives, and how we ourselves have manifested our fears. It is the kind of thing that we intrinsically know we have to deal with: to confront the darker side in order to progress unhindered, yet most often we try to ignore it. It is the deeper truth that we are forever in search of within ourselves. Probably the best use we can make of the Dark Moon is to explore our hidden depths, realise that we all have that darker side and go within to resolve that which ultimately hinders us. The Dark Moon is representative of the negative traits of guilt, shame, hatred, envy, and vengefulness, and is often brought about by personal wounds and hurts. It is the true dark side of things we try to hide..
There is another side of the Dark Moon astrologically. Carl G Jung, the famous psychoanalyst described something that he called the "anima". The anima is a man's image of the ideal woman and also the feminine side of his personality. For a woman it is the image of the ideal man and the masculine side of her personality. So the dark moon in a birthchart will represent these ideals too.
Dark Moon Lilith could represent that potentially tangible part of us that leaks out occasionally. Just as Dark Moon Lilith has only shown her face to a select few, this could represent that side of us that we only reveal in isolated moments of intimacy. This Lilith could be manifested through such things as ripping your lover's back to shreds during a screaming orgasm, then compassionately treating it with hydrogen peroxide when sanity returns.
It is also representative of the enchantress or the seducer, one who lures another by use of sexuality or devious means. The kind who tempts another by implying that the grass is greener on the other side, that they can "rescue" someone, but it is in reality for their own selfish gain.
The Dark Moon Lilith also has associations with motherhood, like her counterpart the Moon. With Lilith however, the instinctive nurturing is replaced by a strong protection of her offspring to the point that she would kill if necessary any that threatened them or caused them harm. She is also reactive against the ties involved with motherhood and the emptiness that mothers sometimes feel by isolation and the perceived lack of individuality that accompanies it.
The manner in which the Dark Moon plays out will be of the character of the sign in which it is posited and with overtones of the ruling planet of that sign. For example, if your Dark Moon is in Aries, it will act in the manner of Aries with overtones of Mars.
"The Dark Moon describes our relationship to the absolute, to sacrifice as such, and shows how we let go. In transit, the Dark Moon indicates some form of castration or frustration, frequently in the areas of desire, a powerlessness of the psyche, or a general inhibition. On the other hand, it shows where we question ourselves, our lives, our jobs, and our beliefs. I feel this is important, since it gives us the opportunity to 'let go' of something. The Dark Moon shows where we can let the Whole flow into our selves, without putting an 'I' in the way, without putting up a wall in the form of ego. At the same time, it doesn't indicate passivity - on the contrary - it symbolizes the firm will to be open and trusting, to let the Greater World flow through one, relying entirely on the great laws of the universe, on that which we name God. To prepare us for this opening, the Dark Moon creates a necessary void."

1181 Asteroid Lilith:
1181 asteroid Lilith has a geocentric period of about four years. The symbol for asteroid Lilith is a stylized hand, signaling warning, greeting, or blessing. The hand is one of the most ancient symbols used by humans, seen on petroglyphs and in cave drawings. Eastern images of Gods and Goddess show hand gestures, called mudras, that convey meaning. Perhaps the meaning of Lilith¹s hand signal depends on how one approaches her. Its glyph represents the upturned palm of a hand, which could be either rejecting or expecting something different. It takes about 5 years for 1181 asteroid Lilith to travel through all 12 signs, since it does retrograde a lot. It orbits the Sun in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.
In the classic book, Asteroid Goddesses, Demetra George and Douglas Bloch discuss the mythology of asteroid Lilith in relation to issues of suppressed rage, resentment, sexual manipulation and self-exile. She is a fiercely independent Goddess who refuses to submit to the assumed authority of another, who refuses to compromise her beliefs. As the original, first wife of Adam, created from the same God Power and the same Earth, she demanded an equal relationship. She asks us to deal with confrontation and issues of equality in relationship.

The asteroid seems to represent split off, demonized aspects of the feminine, the result of long standing cultural projections that percieve feminine roles and attributes as shameful, untrustworthy and dangerous; also issues surrounding motherlessness and adoption/mentoring. Our personal Lilith placement may show where we struggle with social judgments that define how the feminine qualities should be expressed in order to "fit in." It is the point where we may most need to cast off socially-imposed role models of the feminine that deny her true instinct and vitality. These cultural definitions define us, but are not us. Here we may not be seen clearly. A prominent 1181 asteroid Lilith placement in the birth chart may indicate a person who does not fit the cultural stereotype, leading to some kind of exile from the community.
1181 asteroid Lilith can represent/indicate:
- conflict resolution (sometimes the incapability to attain this)
- divided loyalties
- favoritism
- issues of personal and sexual power
- domination (particularly in male nativities) and violence
- doubts over the integrity or loyalty of partners
- female sexual assertiveness, fantasies, independence and lust
- a lack of sexual commitment
- love triangles
- manipulative relationship behaviour
- a non-submissive disposition, particularly with regard to gender roles for women
- negotiation and compromise ability; repressed anger (sometimes leading to vindictive behaviour)
- personal independence; resentment arising from rejection
- rivalry for affection, commitment or fidelity; sexual expectations or criticism; subterfuge in relationships
- an uncompromising stance over beliefs
- the use of sex as a weapon of vengeance or domination
1181 asteroid Lilith, is often cited as influencing relationships. It has to do with all aspects of difficult sexual relationships. This is where our attitudes toward sexuality, power, or rage at its suppression, violently refusing to be subordinate, or using it for manipulation reside. Refusal to compromise one's beliefs in a destructive manner are also in this realm. Regardless of how correct the principle may be, there are ways to get what you want without being blatantly destructive, but this is not the approach taken by a Lilith personality. Lilith doesn't care if her means are self-destructive, only that they make a statement. Eve ultimately got her way, but did so by using her feminine wiles in a far less threatening manner. In synastry, aspects to Lilith indicate the necessity for those involved to negotiate compromises; and potential sexual difficulties arising from anger, fear, suspicion or rejection.

Afflicted, Lilith can signify the inability to reach consensus before issues of power can be resolved; perceptions of femininity as being 'bitchy' or evil (particularly in male subjects); or even sexual abuse.

Transits to Lilith bring issues of comparison, competition, preference or rejection to the fore, often with some activity keeping partners relatively apart temporarily, leading to feelings of neglect and jealousy. They can also provoke confrontations with gender role stereotypes. When activated by transits, eclipses or progressions, Lilith placed strongly natally can manifest as a period of sexual disinterest or involvement in love affairs.
________________________________________________________________
Algol: The Lilith Star:
Lilith has given her name to yet a fourth astronomical entity, Algol: The Lilith Star. The star Algol in the constellation Perseus, has a reputation as the most evil star in the sky. Most often envisioned as the Eye or Head of Medusa, Algol was also called Lilith by Hebrew star watchers. Such an Eye perceives "with an objectivity, like that of nature itself and our dreams, boring into the soul to find the naked truth, to see reality beneath all its myriad forms and the illusions and defenses it displays," writes Sylvia Pereira as she describes Ereshkigal's sword-like glance of death. When the Sumerian underworld Goddess fixes her gaze upon us, our illusions about ourselves are stripped. Our motivations are bared. We see the truth and stew in our own juices, as we let go of self-deceptions and illusions. As the Wolf said to Little Red Riding Hood, "All the better to see you with, my dear."

Stellar Lilith, in the realm of the fixed stars, is located at 25 Taurus 28 in relation to the zodiac and culminates, or reaches its height in the sky, at 18 Taurus. Both of these points are potent Algol degrees, creating another kind of Lilith corridor. You may have your own position for Algol rising or setting, depending on where you were born. This star brings us into a large mythic drama, that involves Perseus and Andromeda, Cassiopeia and Cepheus, Pegasus and Cetus. The well-known Greek story has more ancient roots in Ethiopia and Libya, in the prehistory of the Amazon culture and the High Priestesses of Africa, revealing more dimensions of the power of the Great Mother.

________________________________________________________________
The Trinity of Lilith:
The three Liliths are intriguing as a mirror of the triple Goddess - and the star Algol brings the trinity into a fourth dimension. Essentially Tantric, Lilith in her several forms transforms subjective to spiritual. Her impersonal energy opens transparent areas of the mind, not clouded by the weight of collective Judgement or limitations of ego identity. The three aspects vibrate at different frequencies, in chords and octaves, opening channels to clear and spiritualize the emotional body. The cycle of our Lilith experience is initiated by the asteroid Lilith, developed by the Dark Moon Lilith and completed by the Black Moon Lilith.
1181 Asteroid Lilith is not connected to the Moon as are the other two Liliths. It has an orbit of somewhat over four years and is the most embodied, a verified object with an official number. Asteroid Lilith about repressed elements that want full embodied _expression, relating to issues of sexuality, anger, assertion and conflict resolution.

Dark Moon Lilith has the fastest orbital cycle, like a cloud passing across the Sun. With its very existence veiled in shadow, Dark Moon relates to highly individualized soul desires that are denied personal satisfaction for higher _expression on social/spiritual levels.
Black Moon Lilith is an energy vortex, an ancient pathway into incarnation and sword of truth. Its orbital cycle of eight years, ten months, coordinates with the Moon¹s nodal cycles. Black Moon has deep instinctive intuition, will and desire power that can weave matter out of ether. Perhaps that why she comes in dreams, when our bodies and rational minds are asleep. Our thoughts are then turned off and she can whisper her secrets in images and even, perhaps, transport us to other realms. She is a weaver of the etheric and the physical, like the warp and woof of the loom. She weaves together the collective and the personal, as the myth becomes our experience to regenerate.
The Lilith Star: Algol, brings the energy into another dimension. Seemingly immortal in the ancient field of fixed stars, it contains a collective dimension of Lilith, that fixes her Eye on us dispassionately, winking mysteriously.

Lilith In The Signs:

LILITH IN ARIES often causes an extreme strive for autonomy, leading to problems in partnerships, because you are very interested in partnerships. Perhaps you are changing restlessly possible life partners without committing yourself, because there is always anything wrong with them. With flirts you are courageously, quickly and also successfully, possibly tending to one nite stands. Partnerships and sexual matters can be of uncertainty. You are fair, fighting for justice and peace.
Lilith in Aries is straight-forward about her sexuality and may use it to feel powerful. Applied in a negative manner, there may be temper tantrums or bratty behavior.
****************************************
LILITH IN TAURUS gives extraordinary love for the beauty and big emotional activity. You look for your security needs in a relationship, contacting others by flirting. With gifts and properties others can attract you, and probably you achive material security in a partnership. But you maybe get disturbed by the material dependence then, and your emotional harmony turns out of the balance.
Lilith in Taurus may hide money or possessions, and there will be a great deal of secrecy regarding finances. This can also indicate miserliness, or a refusal to share one's resources with others.
****************************************
LILITH IN GEMINI usually causes a strive for independence, particularly in intellectual areas. Perhaps you dedicate yourself to the beautiful literary arts or work in the public relations area. You have a diplomatic and psychological feeling and can entertain your fellow beings very well. Probably you tend to superficialnesses and your objectivity is limited sometimes, because you can get enticed and bounded by ideas easily. You possibly like to change your fellow beings, especially partners, if possible without their and even sometimes your own knowledge. In this position emotions can be suppressed unnoticed or converted to rationalities.
When Lilith hides herself among the twins, she may exhibit a chameleon-like ability to be whoever she must be at the moment, hiding her true thoughts and feelings. If used improperly, the native may be considered "two-faced" or be a vicious gossip.
****************************************
LILITH IN CANCER urges you to create domestic and family peace. You like to meet many people in your home in order to have expanded meals with them, whereby you take part in discussions very emotionally and with psychological knowledge. In family matters you are inclined not to recognize things or situations correctly, or you don't want to admit situations and circumstances because you get enticed by unrealistic opinions very easily.
Hidden emotions may come out in ways that affect the physical health. When expressed in ways that are healthy, Lilith's influence here makes the native a powerful parent, or an activist for the protection of children. When negative, there may be chronic or psychomatic illness, or the tendency toward martyrdom.
****************************************
LILITH IN LEO produces strong entertainment urges. Without any problems people can attract you to go to parties, where you then set yourself on stage. You also want to participate in bets and speculations, though your intuition tells you rather to leave your hands of it. You create harmony and peace, know how to flirt and to manipulate people to general well-being. You are probably well-known due to your charming character.
Lilith in Leo wants to be admired, but she'll never admit it. In creative _expression, she will do things her own way and never feel obliged to explain herself. Taken to extremes, she becomes the prima donna, demanding and unforgiving.
****************************************
LILITH IN VIRGO blurrs the objectivity and lets you express criticism at wrong places perhaps. You simply don't want to commit yourself, are very orientationless regarding occupation and partnership. Other people may get confused by you, because this confusive position produces paradoxes in almost all areas of life. You perhaps tend hopelessly between commitment and autonomy urge, between social contacts and retreat. On the other hand, psychological and analytic abilities are almost unsurpassably strong, and your intuition beats everything. Unfortunately the possibility exists that you are not conscious about your abilities, or that you don't want to admit them.
Lilith in Virgo will often make the native very secretive or repressed in their sexual _expression, and there will be much attention to hygiene and health-related details. When negative, Lilith in Virgo can be very cold and aloof, or extremely critical of the habits of others..
****************************************
LILITH IN LIBRA makes one fair, diplomatically and harmony-striving. You like to flirt and manipulate your fellow beings with well-meaning intention. You permanently go into and break or let brake partnerships, because you vary between commitment and thirst for autonomy. The cause could be that you don't want to admit your wrong conceptions about fellow beings, or you don't want to see their real characters. Surely also belongs to it, that you may consider yourself completely different, contrary to the others, or that you are simply misjudged. You are of wisdom and intuition, as well as psychological ability and music love, but you may not have knowledge about it all. You wish to receive emotional loyalty from your life partner, and you want to be accepted emotionally. Probably you have very high requirements in partnerships and wish well working interpersonal relations to yourself.
Lilith in Libra may find herself concerned with the legalistic side of power. She is a defender of women here, supportive of laws that curtail abuse or sexual crimes. Taken to extremes, Lilith in Libra may be vindictive against those she perceives to be offenders, and in relationships may be clinging, jealous or manipulative.
****************************************
LILITH IN SCORPIO may let you be enticed by sexual attractions easily, whereby you subordinate yourself to a more powerful partner or in reverse, or it comes to a mutually making the most of power. In this position the danger exists that you don't recognize these powers at all, the own or those of the others. You have to deal with setbacks, accidents and symbolic as well as real deaths, although there are usually opportunities to avoid it before any danger appears. You are maybe addicted to dangers because you want to exceed borders. Possibly you had to make experiences with death in the childhood, but can see the death as an inevitable part of the life due to your large psychological regeneration ability now.
There are some astrologers who believe that Lilith is the co-ruler of Scorpio, along with Pluto. When placed here, she is powerfully sexual, hypnotic, seductive and wise. When under a negative influence, she can become bitter, vengeful or obsessed.
****************************************
LILITH IN SAGITTARIUS surely confronts you with the temptations of education journeys. If there is something to learn somewhere, you are quickly at place and you won't leave out a single opportunity to travel. Your contact to fellow beings is, due to your knowledge and psychological understanding, rather missionary and manipulative, but always with well-meaning intention. You are popular in a certain way because you try to apply diplomacy and fairness. At all your optimism and all the generosity you spread out, it could come to the situation that other people take advantage of you, or that you misjudge fellow beings.
Lilith in Sagittarius may hide her emotions beneath a facade of humor or a mask of "niceness." She may keep her personal philosophies secret from others, keeping her own counsel. In the negative, this placement can indicate haughtiness, self-righteousness, and prejudice.
****************************************
LILITH IN CAPRICORN lets you hardly resist to the temptations of fame, status and power. You could bring yourself into large difficulties, because you misjudge the actual naturenesses of these characteristics, or you don't want to admit them at all. Problems in partnerships are usually resulting therefore in this position. You could tend to change your fellow beings and, in addition, to suppress their inner values completely. You look for autonomy, but perhaps won't necessarily also grant it to others.
Lilith in Capricorn will hardly ever share any emotions, and these natives may seem unapproachable. Achievement and status will be the method employed to feed the hidden need for emotional contact. At its extremes, here is the anal retentive who must control everything.
****************************************
LILITH IN AQUARIUS lets you misjudge your friends easily. Probably you have completely wrong conceptions of them or of what your friends think about you. You strive for autonomy with manipulative methods and psychological tricks, reject all too tight interpersonal relations and consider partnerships and relations rather as friendships. You surely hardly tend to commit yourself, although you want to to express any certain inner urge. Your fairness, tolerance, global thinking and humanity are noticeable, and you may argue with degenerated art or queer music styles. Though your intuitivity is remarkable, you could tend to a nonperception of the mentioned things.
Lilith in Aquarius will probably mask the hidden emotions with a series of ever-changing kaleidoscopic surface emotions, and will seem fascinating and elusive to others. The native may be chimerical, fluttering like a fairy from one situation to the next. At its worst, Lilith in Aquarius is irresponsible, remote, and refuses to listen to others.
****************************************
LILITH IN PISCES can produce almost high-grade blurryness and impressingness. Perhaps you go voluntarily in dependence, also separatingnesses and an excessive social activity characterizes you. Possibly you repudiate yourself and don't recognize your internal needs or you don't want allow them to yourself. Fantasy, art sense and inspiration are very strong here. In addition, this position shows the danger to succumb to illusions and surrealities again and again. Possibly the whole life does not appear to you as real, but as virtual.
Lilith is already secretive, and doubly so in Pisces. This is usually the person who has emotional wounding buried so deeply that they don't even know it themselves. Lilith's placement here may instigate behaviors which even the native finds baffling, and is often associated with passive-aggressive and unconscious behavioral patterns.
________________________________________________________________

Lilith In The Houses:

LILITH IN THE 1st HOUSE lets you always fight impulsively and initiatively for liberalism and fairness. You have ingenuity and foam over with energy in relations, partnerships and public-referred interests. With sexual adventures you can get enticed easily and if someone offers a leading role to you, you take it without thinking. In this position there is a tendency to come into problematic situations repeatedly, and also to understand the life life-worthy only as a kind of nonstop action.
****************************************
LILITH IN THE 2nd HOUSE directs efforts on hedonistic activities and the acquisition of property. Quickly you succumb to material temptations, and you accumulate properties. You probably don't recognize the problems coming along with that, or you don't want to admit them at all, you don't react, but look for harmony and have a sense of art. Perhaps you regret it soon, if you commit yourself in a partnership, especially if you went into financial dependence.
****************************************
LILITH IN THE 3rd HOUSE can cause misunderstandings and misjudgings while looking on yourself or on other persons. Perhaps it is not clear to you, how much independence you need, or you even don't want to admit that at all. Therefore you terminate relationships when they become seriously, or you go into a relationship, but get very unhappy with it. You don't want to commit yourself and you also need mental liberty. You feel safe with informal contacts, to which you are looking intensively for, and you can get tempted to meetings without problems.
****************************************
LILITH IN THE 4th HOUSE looks for fulfilment in family, home and homeland. Probably you suffer from the missing autonomy, anyhow you don't get lucky. You gladly invite to meals and meet the whole family to communicative happenings. You strive for harmony and diplomacy, but are inclined to misjudge your fellow beings.. Possibly there is discord between understanding and feeling.
****************************************
LILITH IN THE 5th HOUSE spreads charisma, but possibly lets you misjudge your children. It can lead to fatal misunderstandings, if you don't use your intuition and wisdom with children. Maybe it comes to manipulations on one side or even mutually. You are maybe a phoney and like to set yourself on stage. Gladly you surround yourself with luxury and look for harmony, need a lot of freedom. You easily succumb to the temptation to take part in speculations.
****************************************
LILITH IN THE 6th HOUSE often lets you succumb to rational temptations of perfection, correctness and hygiene. On the other hand also an irrational, intuitive attraction shows up. A fight between understanding and feeling could occur here. Perhaps you internally hate all the perfection and such things. You may misjudge the reality frequently, and you take the liberty to place criticism without the necessary objectivity at the same time. Your psychological understanding is very noticeably and perhaps you find your healing in helping other people, in healing and in sympathy for others. In partnerships and relations it could come to a conflict between your thirst for autonomy and an urge to commit yourself to the other. If your public life gets too stressful you may tend to retreat from it for a while.
****************************************
LILITH IN THE 7th HOUSE causes a fight between a commitment urge and a strive for independence. Perhaps you are able to analyze your own psychological situation in every detail, but you succumb to the temptation to change nothing, showing the same behaviors again and again, of which you know exactly that you harm yourself. Gladly you manipulate your fellow beings with best intentions and flirts are your speciality. Also, you love the music and show your mediating, always fair and harmony-referring nature.
****************************************
LILITH IN THE 8th HOUSE brings you in contact with power. Perhaps you don't notice it at all, or you don't want to admit that people use their power. There is also the possibility that you misjudge your own power by suppressing others. Possibly you expose yourself consciously to dangers or get enticed to dangerous and or sexual activities. This position usually brings contacts with deaths and losses in early years. By your internal wisdom you understood with the years that death is a part of the life.
****************************************
LILITH IN THE 9th HOUSE makes optimistically, generous and gives interest in philosophy and religion. You strive very intensively for education and overload yourself with knowledge. There is the possibility, that others misjudge you or take advantage of you, or you negate your abilities or don't want to admit them. You need a lot of independence and are characterized by honesty, fairness and love for justice. You gladly are missionary and make use of your psychological understanding. Possibly others misunderstand you, and there exists a danger of getting enticed by very high and honourable, but not daily ideals making you appearing as unworldly and queer to your fellow beings. You would never say no to an education journey and immediately get into the airplane, also, the temptation of an emigration is very big here, whereby the danger of idealizing the destination of the emigration exists, and you may later realize to have been a victim of an illusion. If you meet your probably permanent desires to travel far away by just doing it, you may come in contact to many interesting people, and thus you will be able to extend your horizon.
****************************************
LILITH IN THE 10th HOUSE lets you gladly manipulate other perople. You strive for fame, power and status, but may not recognize the side effects of these things or you recognize them, but suppress or don't admit them at the same time. The result can be problems, restrictions and in the long run bitterness and discords, which you consider as an interference factor in your life surely. Either you don't accept that another one has power over you, or you are not consciously about others that use their power to your disadvantage at all. And thus you surely are in conflict with leading persons permanently, if you are aware of this, because you need very much freedom, and therefore you also could avoid partnerships or allow them to be on a friendship level only. Probably your demands are much too high, and you overload yourself with responsibilities within the areas of partnership and public relations. This position tempts to taboo breakings, to a questioning of conventions and undemocratic social structures.
****************************************
LILITH IN THE 11th HOUSE brings strong autonomy efforts. You are very tolerant and open to unusualnesses, surely have strange, but very creative artistic attitudes and prefer open partnerships, that others would rather consider as friendships only. You look for adventurous friendships, but could tend to misjudge the kind of your friends natures, or you don't want to admit them. Intuition and wisdom are nevertheless very strong, as well as your inventor talent. You like to present your eccentric nature.
****************************************
LILITH IN THE 12th HOUSE seems to create an urge for illusions, fantasies and intoxication conditions. You are probably susceptibly to drugs and easily impressable. On the other hand, this position gives a very strong creative and inspirative capability. You vary between social contacts and retreats to isolation, are engaged excessively in the social area and help sympatheticly wherever it is necessary, whereby you also might neglect yourself. Perhaps a tendency exists, to walk through the life without a self, because you negate, don't recognize or want to admit your own needs.

very impressive indeed, and nice to have compiled at a single URL

I've just been looking into the Dacian (Dacia, latter day Carpathia/Romania) dieties and I'm disappointed to find only one of them on the astro.com list:
(46) Hestia
"Also known as Hesta, Vesta: former Priestess of Bendis, deified as Goddess of the Hearth, of Family and of the Sacred Fire "

...redundant in a sense, however, another potential point of contact with Vestal qualities and principles

here's more info on (pre-Greco-Roman) Dacian religion, with a list of early Central European dieties that the asteroid naming establishment seems to have overlooked --but if anyone knows where to find #s for any of them, please share them with us.

*********************************
from: www.seachain-aroon.com/index.php

Dacian Goddesses and Gods

The Dacian religion is very hard to understand by outsiders.

Considered henotheistic by some, trying to approach it from this point of view it just gives room for even more confusion.

The Dacians were primarily worshiping the "Supreme Divinity", the "Supreme God", the "Supreme Principle", who is undefinable, un-named, unfathomable by the mere human mind. In a way it can be similar with the Hindu concept of Brahma (as in the Supreme Cosmic Spirit).

The human mind does not have the capacity to fully comprehend the Supreme Principle, and they can only understand it by fragments and pieces - thus the facets of this Supreme Power, facets we name Gods and Goddesses. This special theology made the Christianization of the territory of the former Dacian Empire have such an unexpected result - not smother the ancient pagan tradition, but be englobed in it, and still celebrated in our days in an intricate intertwining of ancient rituals and traditions of milennary ancestry under both their ancient names and the newer Christian names.

The Dacian Gods and Goddesses all live in the Underworld of the Ancients. From this point of view they could be all considered chtonic divinities, but that wouldn’t be accurate, as the “Underworld” is not exactly a world under or below the Earth, but a parallel plane world would be a more accurate description. And many of them are at the same time divinities of the Underworld AND divinities of the Sun or Sky.

Gebeleizis
Also known as Nebeleizis or the Thracian Zbelsurdos. God of the Sky, of Thunderstoms, of Weather.

Derzelas
Also known as Darzos or the Thracian Knight: God of Health, of Grapevine, of the Underworld, of the Sun, of War. Appears often as the lover/husband of Bendis.

Bendis
Goddess of the Forest, of Hunt, of War (in some representations), of the Moon and of Magic.

Hestia
Also known as Hesta, Vesta: former Priestess of Bendis, deified as Goddess of the Hearth, of Family and of the Sacred Fire

Zalmoxes
Also known as Zamolxis, Zalmoxis: former priest of Gebeleizis, deified as God of the Underworld (in later times he takes over all the attributes of Gebeleizis)

Dros
Also known as The Lord of the Night or the Stag-God, Ion the Magnificent: God of the Night, Song and Magic. Appears often as the lover/husband of Bendis.

I must say Tigerlily, the lack of response to all your work must come from a state of awe more than anything.
You've left little to be said but a massive thankyou for taking the time to compile the basic essences of most of them....

Thankyou muchly

I think that it would help to give little explanation about how each of those objects,points relate to psychic, witchcraft, magick, and occult.
I am scratching my head about a lot of those listed

I'm going to just put the important aspects.
