The Hidden Symbolism in the Details of the Medusa-Perseus Myth

2 min

Today Venus perfects her conjunction to Capulus, the fixed star representing the handle of Perseus' blade that cut off Medusa's head (fixed star Algol). In the earliest versions of the Greek myth of Perseus and Medusa there are some telling details that clue us into hidden symbolism.

One of the projects I've chosen to flesh-out this year is updated understandings of the fixed stars for our modern times, especially stars that are over hyped as either terrifying or some kind of beacon of goodness. All stars are dimensional with several possibilities.

This spans from natal chart delineations to magical implications. I'll especially emphasize their creative, healing, apprenticeship possibilities because it is desperately needed in these times of uncertainty.

I want to empower nuanced, healthy relationships to the fixed stars.

Simultaneously the Moon is applying to perfect a conjunction with Saturn, who is conjunct fixed star Deneb Algedi--making a square to Venus.
