22 November 2014
Saturn and the New Moon will oppose Algol, a bright [eclipsing binary] star in the constellation Perseus. Details:
Saturn (26 degrees) Scorpio opposes Algol (26 degrees Taurus) 5:53 GMT
New Moon (26 degrees) Scorpio opposes Algol (26 degrees Taurus) 10:53 GMT
What is important about the fixed star, Algol?
Throughout history, Algol has been given various gruesome aliases, like: The Demon Star, Blinking Eye of Medusa, The Raging One, Satan’s Head, Spectre’s Head, Piled Up Corpses, etc.
This bright star in the constellation Perseus represents the right eye of Medusa, the serpent headed Gorgon, decapitated by Perseus. The story, or myth, of Medusa is a tragic one indeed. Medusa suffered the ultimate act of brutalisation, betrayal and vindictiveness.
According to the Roman poet Ovid, Medusa was originally a ravishingly beautiful maiden and “the jealous aspiration of many suitors”. Poseidon’s lust was strong and he raped Medusa in Athena’s temple; the enraged Athena transformed Medusa’s beautiful hair to serpents and made her face so terrible to behold that the mere sight of it would turn onlookers to stone. She was never to touch a man again. In Ovid’s telling, Perseus describes Medusa’s punishment by Minerva (Athena) as just and well earned. In most versions of the story, she was then beheaded by the hero Perseus.
Algol has been said to represent: beheadings or removal of the head, face or mask. It also represents heads of state, extreme violence and sickness. Clearly, through the ages, astrologers have been trying to tell us something about this star.
The last time Algol was in alignment, on 7 September (Mars in Scorpio), there were extremely significant implications around the World in the news: very public beheadings (Overseas and in the UK) and also the Summit meeting of NATO Heads of State and Government in Newport, Wales.
As mentioned, Algol has been said to represent: beheadings or removal of the head, face or mask and heads of state.
Anyone keeping up with current world news will know that these events are occurring increasingly at this time: beheadings – either faked or real, or both. Why would anyone fake a beheading? It’s beyond me but we at least know that Governments are capable of faking WMD’s, to force through agendas for war, sadly the Biggest Business on planet Earth right now.
So, the question we might ask is: Are we witnessing an external influence manifesting in our physical reality and forcing gruesome acts upon us or something equally as sinister. Is a power on Earth making sure that these events play out at this time as part of a ritual? You can be sure that astrology is usually always employed during an occult ritual for maximum power and effectiveness. One example of which would be 11 September 2001, where the astrological alignments (signs in the Heavens) were, quite frankly, staggering.
I will not be making any predictions about what the 22 November (22-11) will bring, or the days and weeks in its wake, excuse the pun! However, I will add the following points to consider:
- 22-11 is a powerful ritualistic number
- Saturn (death) is opposing Algol in Scorpio (death)
- New Moon will also oppose Algol
- Pluto (Scorpio ruler) is at 11 degrees Capricorn (Saturn’s House) – a mutual reception in astrology
- The glyph for Pluto (death) is decapitated – the only glyph in astrology with its head separated.
If dark occult practitioners, probably at the levels of control higher than government, appear to be using the energy involved to create fear through decapitations (faked or legitimate) then I am afraid to say that is nothing new under the Sun. Believe it or not, they have always done so and will continue to do so until their own Heads (of State or otherwise) are removed.
For the wise and astrologically aware amongst us, this energy must be used to tame the tortured dark feminine aspect in all of us. We all hold the tormented archetype of the Medusa within us. We have all at one point in our lives felt abused, betrayed or completely broken. This is the correct way to be working with this energy.
Algol, a binary eclipsing star giving it the title ‘The Blinking Eye‘
The name Algol derives from Arabic رأس الغول ra’s al-ghūl : head (ra’s) of the ogre (al-ghūl) (see “ghoul”). The English name “Demon Star” is a direct translation of this.
The Hebrews knew Algol as Rosh ha Satan, Satan’s Head, English writer John Chilmead (circa 1639) as Rosch hassatan, the Devil’s head; but also as Lilith, Adam’s legendary first wife.
A Latin name for Algol from the 16th century was Caput Larvae or “the Spectre’s Head”. Hipparchus and Pliny made this a separate, though connected, constellation.
The Greek astronomer, Ptolemy, catalogued it as ton en gorgonio o lampros, “the bright one of those in the Gorgon’s head”.
The Chinese gave it the gruesome title Tseih She, the Piled-up Corpses.
The word Alcohol derives from Algol. Alcohol induces the alter ego and the hidden self / suppressed half. When one consumes alcohol they are said to be “off their heads” or “out of their heads”.
There is significant evidence that we live in a computed programmed simulation known as The Matrix. Saturn and the Moon have often been cited as possible outposts where a super-computer type intelligence may be operating from, seems far-fetched?
Well, by now you may be aware that this reality is not quite as ‘natural’ as we have been led to believe. This matrix (web) consists of a ‘Super Computer-like’ patterning and framework. If you watch proceedings carefully enough you will notice the patterning and structure all around you, even in nature: Cyclical and repetitive sequences, prompts and commands…
With best wishes and intentions,
