Mounted Star Algol, Medusa’s Head ~ Birthdays Might 15 To 19. A True Darkstar!


The pinnacle of Medusa from Greek mythology is represented by the notorious Algol fastened star at 26º Taurus. The Solar aligns with this star from round Might fifteenth to nineteenth. So in case your birthday falls close to these dates you might discover recurring Algol themes in your life.

As a part of constellation Perseus, Algol was regarded by the ancients as essentially the most evil star within the heavens, however is its popularity warranted? If Algol was actually so malevolent then we’d discover it frequent in serial killers. We simply don’t discover it there. Algol is nevertheless current in some dictators and it’s also true that Algol has a reference to demise and ache.

The medical time period Algology means the research of ache. “You will be unable to disregard struggling and horror, or brush it apart… The Algol placement on a chart insists upon a confrontation and assimilation of those harsh facets of human expertise on this lifetime.….

Algol, like different stars, confers duties upon us which, if comprehended and accepted, supply nice rewards of energy and creativity. These stellar challenges are to not be feared, however understood and utilized in a optimistic method.”  Diana Rosenberg [1].

Algol is located within the constellation Perseus, the place this hero is depicted slaying the gorgon Medusa’s head off. Algol is positioned within the brow of Medusa. I like to think about it as her third eye. The ancients mistrusted Algol’s blinking and inexplicable 8 hour disappearances. But it surely seems it’s a binary star, eclipsing itself each 3 days.

Mysterious certainly and solely provides to its attract. The poor star seems to die, however then it’s reborn. Medusa’s deathly look is impressed by the looks of a corpse, the pores and skin dries and tightens over the bones of the face making the eyes large, broad and staring.

Demon Alcohol

The Arab phrase for alcohol means “the Demon”. Alcohol comes from the phrase Algol. Alcohol disintegrates and dries us out, so it actually petrifies. It turns us into zombies, we free our heads and our sovereignty. It’s straightforward for a dictator to brainwash a nation of drunks. On the similar time crime can be fuelled by alcohol, giving us a false sense of bravado. Morals grow to be loosened.

“The shaft of the abyss, from which smoke rises like an ideal furnace, reeks of alcoholThat girl of the Apocalypse of Saint John, wearing purple and scarlet and adorned in gold, valuable stones and pearls, drinks alcohol. She holds a golden cup in her palms filled with abominations and the filthiness of her fornication. That’s the nice whore whose quantity is 666.” [2]

Algol threads the superb line between life and demise, insanity and knowledge. Wine could make you heat and sociable at events or flip you right into a lecherous fiend. It may be a fact serum, but it might probably make you inform the filthiest lies.

When alcohol pierces our aura it might probably let in these evil spirits, they take possession of us, we have now been invaded. Within the Greek fantasy, being invaded by Poseidon (Neptune) was precisely what occurred to Medusa within the first place.

Neptune is in fact additionally related to alcoholics and the blurring of boundaries between worlds. So the God of the ocean raped Medusa, however what’s extra horrifying was Pallas Athena siding with the Gods in condemning her. This essential a part of the story is usually ignored.


Medusa Delusion

Medusa began out as a temple Virgin. She was lovely, charming and admired for her superb, lengthy, shiny hair. Poseidon, overcome by lust, ravished her within the temple. Pallas Athena was not amused so she cursed Medusa for defiling her sacred grounds.

Out of jealousy or perhaps simply to show she was one of many boys, Pallas turned Medusa into the hideous serpent headed gorgon with the petrifying stare she is known for. Courageous Perseus succeeded in decapitating her and returned her head to Pallas Athena to be used as a robust defend in battle, the Aegis.

Medusa grew to become much more highly effective after her demise (see Diana), collectively along with her rival Pallas Athena she grew to become invincible. Perhaps there’s a message right here, when former adversaries are united they grow to be stronger.

Algol can be undoubtedly a star of transformation. The blinking binary star goes from mild to darkish in cycles, like Persephone. So she is one other resurrection Goddess and like Persephone, she was additionally raped by a God…

The serpents in Medusa’s hair join her to the Ophiuchus constellation (the snake charmer) also called the drugs man.

I wrote that “Medication comes from the identical root as Medusa, the title of the sorceress Medea additionally comes from this root. The blood from Medusa’s left facet was toxic and the proper facet was used to heal.”

So the paradox once more, in the event you dabble in shamanism it might probably kill you or enlighten you. Medusa’s blood additionally gave beginning to Pegasus, the place lies one other story about hubris. Each the Lilith star and the Lilith constellation of Ophiuchus have the darkest popularity throughout the fastened stars. And each function…serpents. What is it about serpents?

With Ophuichus the serpent is about linking sexuality to enlightenment, and that appears to fret Christianity. With Algol it’s extra about taking that knowledge and turning into your personal god. Now science is the fear. Nowhere is that this Medusa hubris extra evident than within the medical occupation, the place we have now docs taking part in god with genetics.

Algol Key phrases

Creating monsters, Frankenstein, splicing, cosmetic surgery, mutation, genetic manipulation, taking part in god, bizarre heads, uncommon hair, irregular intercourse drive, perversion, warped thoughts, exaggerated manner, deformities, a creation that turns into damaging to it’s maker, regeneration, montaging, efficiency versus impotence, brewers droop, hanging, gorgeous, spine-tingling, thoughts blowing, getting out-of-your-head, thoughts over matter, ultra-creative, being your personal god, soothing ache, caring for the struggling, haunting voice, talking for the under-dog, exorcising ones demons, working with the shadow.

Algol guidelines heads of states and beheading, it guidelines treason and changing one ideology with one other. The pinnacle comprises the mind so it’s about knowledge and naturally snakes within the hair signify increased data, even antennae additionally.

Even the product of Medusa, Pegasus signifies far out concepts means forward of their time. I believe Algol can be about data that blows your thoughts. That is the place Algol turns into horrific, when our intelligence evolves faster than our consciousness.

Algol & Artists *

Algol is distinguished amongst those that work in the mass media. Once more we get a reference to Medea, drugs, anti-venom, snakes.
