Astroschyzy Cycle #14

Cycle #14 :: 01-Feb-2006 to 12-Feb-2006

{Bonorum / Transits}

UPDATE - 01-Feb|22:05 :: (argh) forgot to factor in timezone for new asteroids. redid ephemerides & Cycle #13 & Cycle #14 transits. only difference should involve new asteroids; nothing much changed. however, forgot to include asteroid ETHIOPIA in Cycle #14's new seed released.

Cycle #14 Endpoint: CROCUS

a flower manifests at endpoint: CROCUS ; crocus means "saffron", the most expensive spice in the world. crocus trivia & alchemical symbolism (see also: 26:16, 47:22 & 26:16).

regional note for gunnysack: In South Carolina and adjacent parts of Georgia, it is called a crocus sack, and in the Gulf states, a croker sack, both terms deriving from the word crocus. According to Craig M. Carver, who draws on the research of Walter S. Avis, “Crocus is a coarse, loosely woven material once worn by slaves and laborers and common in colonial New England. It probably took its name from the sacks in which crocus or saffron was shipped.” Though the term crocus sack virtually disappeared from New England by the end of the 19th century, it survives in the South.

Chrocus (also Crocus) was a leader of the Alamanni in the late 3rd century. In 260, he led an uprising of the Alamanni against the Roman Empire, traversing the Upper Germanic Limes and advancing as far as Clermont, and possibly as far as Ravenna, and he was possibly present at the Alamannic conquest of the Frankish town of Mende. {Colonia Eboracensivm : Constantine I}

asteroid CROCUS (737hours) exceptionally slow-rotating; second after GLAUKE (1200hrs).

photo of a Bufo crocus toad; One Piece manga character named Crocus, caretaker and overseer of the lighthouse; Crocus mentioned in Turba Philosophorum (Pound the same, therefore, with its confections, which are the said flower of copper, gold of the Indies whose root is one, and a certain extract of an unguent, that is, of a crocus, that is, fixed exalted alum; cook the four, therefore, permanently for 40 or 42 days. After these days God will show you the principle(or beginning) of this stone, which is the stone Atitos, of which favoured sight of God there are many accounts.).

Hendoku-Iyaku Transit: TRIPAXEPTALIS

{Naming of Asteroids} :: The prize for the most imaginative name goes to (2037) Tripaxeptalis. The name is pure invention but sounds like “triPax-septAlice”, which reflects the fact that its permanent designation is three times that of (679) Pax and seven times that of (291) Alice.

earlier mentioned locating Hendoku Iyaku on the chart. when i bumped into the above i thought locating asteroids Trine (120°) & Septile (51.43°) from TRIPAXEPTALIS. the midpoint between these two locations would be "changing poison into medicine". also check out PAX & ALICE.

TRINE :: SHENZHOU 120º6'35" from TRIPAXEPTALIS @ EON-13 : Stimulation, Determined Activity, Developing, Kernel Issues.

SEPTILE :: TARA 51º28'2" from TRIPAXEPTALIS @ EON-6 : Endurance, Illuminating Intervention, Larger Forces, Crisis of Growth.

MIDPOINT :: ASMODEUS 85º19'22" from TRIPAXEPTALIS @ EON-9 : Lichtung, Ground of Operation, Maturation, Swift Growth. Goetia :: #32-ASMODEUS - The Thirty-second Spirit is Asmoday, or Asmodai. He is a Great King, Strong, and Powerful. He appeareth with Three Heads, whereof the first is like a Bull, the second like a Man, and the third like a Ram; he hath also the tail of a Serpent, and from his mouth issue Flames of Fire. His Feet are webbed like those of a Goose. He sitteth upon an Infernal Dragon, and beareth in his hand a Lance with a Banner. He is first and choicest under the Power of AMAYMON, he goeth before all other.

Turba Philosophorum, see above, mentions Venom of the Philosophers; from the Book of Lambspring: This Surely Is A Great Miracle And Without Any Deception - That In A Venomous Dragon There Should Be The Great Medicine.

A savage Dragon lives in the forest, Most venomous he is, yet lacking nothing: When he sees the rays of the Sun and its bright fire, He scatters abroad his poison, And flies upward so fiercely That no living creature can stand before him, Nor is even the Basilisk equal to him. He who hath skill to slay him, wisely Hath escaped from all dangers. Yet all venom, and colours, are multiplied In the hour of his death. His venom becomes the great Medicine. He quickly consumes his venom, For he devours his poisonous tail. All this is performed on his own body, From which flows forth glorious Balm, With all its miraculous virtues. Hereat all the Sages do loudly rejoice.

Hunting the Blacke Toad:

One of the earliest appearances of the Toad symbol in alchemical literature and iconography seems to be that in the works of George Ripley, in which it plays a very prominent, or even central, part. His short poem The Vision [2] describes an alchemical process veiled in symbols. The Toad first drinks "juice of Grapes" until it is so filled up that "casts it Venom" and "begins to swell" as a result of poisoning. Then the Toad dies in its "Cave" and the usual sequence of colour changes follows: black, various colours, white and red. Thus the Venom is changed into powerful Medicine.

On the Prima Materia:

Materia Prima et hujus vocabula - The philosophers have so greatly admired the Creature of God which is called the Primal Matter, especially concerning its efficacy and mystery, that they have given it many names, and almost every possible description, for they have not known how to sufficiently praise it. ++ 4. Venom, Poison, Chambar, because it kills and destroys the King, and there is no stronger poison in the world.

Lions of Medieval Alchemy:

Below are selected comments from Jung, Marie-Louise von Franz, and Johannes Fabricius regarding medieval depictions of the alchemical lion, with illustrations from Fabricius's book The Medieval Alchemists and Their Royal Art. ++ C. G. Jung: The lion has among other things an unmistakable erotic aspect. Thus the "Introitus apertus" says: "Learn what the doves of Diana are, who conquer the lion with caresses; the green lion, I say, who in truth is the Babylonish dragon who kills all with his venom (Fabricius 1976, p. 298).

In veils that wreathe its absence with shimmering
His own Shade this a guardian poison still
To breathe in always even though it kill.

The Tomb of Charles Baudelaire, Stéphane Mallarmé

A throw of the dice will never eliminate chance.

new asteroid announced 02-Feb, 2006 BP147 — i'm gonna nickname him GROUNDHOG. Punxsutawney Phil says six more weeks of winter; Groundhog Day, my favorite movie.

{Trojan Asteroid Patroclus: Comet in Disguise?} MAUNA KEA, Hawaii (February 1, 2006) Like the hollow wooden horse hiding Greek warriors in the Trojan War, could an entire population of asteroids be masquerading as comets? Observations of the binary Trojan asteroid (617) Patroclus taken at the W. M. Keck Observatory on Mauna Kea have astronomers wondering if asteroids caught in the gravitationally neutral zone of the Sun-Jupiter system might actually be ancient comets and space dust ... Asteroid Patroclus was previously believed to be a single object about 150 kilometers (90 miles) in diameter, but recent observations from the Gemini North telescope in Hawaii found that Patroclus is actually comprised of two objects, making it the first binary Trojan asteroid to be discovered. The discovery of a binary asteroid was not as surprising as the fact that the two objects are nearly identical in size. Dr. Marchis’ team found the larger piece is 122 kilometer (76 miles) wide at its largest point, and the similar-sized partner is 112 kilometers (70 miles). The two pieces orbit their center of mass every four days, separated by a distance of about 680 kilometers (423 miles). The names of these objects are associated with the heroes of Homer’s Iliad. The asteroid Patroclus was named after the best friend and companion to Achilles, the main character of the story and Greek hero of the Trojan War ... The story of Patroclus may be even more complex: As Patroclus encountered the planet Jupiter several billion years ago, it may have gotten a little too close to the mighty planet. The tremendous gravitational forces of Jupiter, which are three times stronger than that of Earth, may have split the small and porous body in half through an effect known as “tidal splitting.”

asteroid #617-PATROCLUS added to 827 List during Cycle #13. binary asteroid PATROCLUS is at JUPITER's L5 Lagrange point (60° behind Jupiter); Greek, son of Menoetius, Achilles' best friend and/or lover, mother probably PHILOMELA; PATROCLUS one of Helen of Sparta's unsuccessful suitors taking part in an oath to defend the chosen husband; during the Trojan Wars, PATROCLUS killed SARPEDON & killed by Hector.
