Cycle #23 End-point: SUPERBUS

Lucius Tarquinius, for his excessive pride surnamed Superbus, after he had caused his own father-in-law Servius Tullius to be cruelly murdered, and, contrary to the Roman laws and customs, not requiring or staying for the people's suffrages, had possessed himself of the kingdomThe Rape of Lucrece, William Shakespeare

added asteroid SUPERBUS because i thought it referred to a computer bus. can't determine who/what it was actually named for, but best bet is Lucius Tarquinius Superbus, "the legendary seventh (and the last) king of ancient Rome". from its founding in 753 BC the Regnum Romanum was a monarchal government with kings selected by an Interrex, approved by the Senate & accepted or rejected by the people. then an augur conducted the auspices to determine the divine will confirming the king-elect's "priestly character" & he was finally vested with Imperium, the power to do what was in the best interests of the state (see fasces & schneefälle).

Lucius Tarquinius Superbus (superbus = "the proud" or "the arrogant"), son of Priscus (fifth Roman king) & son-in-law of Servius (sixth Roman king). Servius' reign became unpopular to the patrician order & ended with a conspiracy led by his daughter Tullia & her husband Tarquinius. Tarquinius' reign marked by violence, murder & terrorism. he destroyed all Sabine shrines & altars from the Tarpeian Rock. nearly completed the Temple of Jupiter started by his father Priscus (see: Aedes Iovis Optimi Maximi Capitolini, Rosette from the ancient Temple of Jupiter, Temple of Jupiter Capitolinus & Capitoline Triad: Jupiter, Juno Moneta, Minerva). finally a revolt sparked by Sextus Tarquinius' (Tarquinius's son) rape of Lucretia & her suicide lead to Tarquinius' expulsion & the end of the Roman Kingdom & the establishment of the Roman Republic (see asteroids #281-LUCRETIA & #6240-LUCRETIUS CARUS).

Hendoku-Iyaku Transit: TRIPAXEPTALIS {14LE26}

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.The Naming of Asteroids

MIDPOINT :: 1996_GQ21 {10SC08Rx} — 85º42'5" from TRIPAXEPTALIS @ EON-9 : Lichtung, Ground of Operation, Maturation, Swift Growth

Long-range SDO 1996_GQ21 is a scattered disc object with a greater orbit than Neptune discovered 12-Apr-1996 by Nichole M. Danzl [1][2] (at Steward Observatory; see also asteroid #10720-DANZL); GQ21 has 2/11 resonance with Neptune. astrologically: Along with Hylonome, GQ21 is the door to nagual, or our hidden self (source).

SEPTILE :: GOTHA {06LI09} — 51º43'10" from TRIPAXEPTALIS @ EON-6 : Endurance, Illuminating Intervention, Larger Forces, Crisis of Growth

TRINE :: IRANI {14SG14Rx} — 119º48'31" from TRIPAXEPTALIS @ EON-12 : Maturation, Cosmic Intent, Higher Spin, Catalysing

TRIPAXEPTALIS currently transiting Leo 14°.

 • GOTHA {06LI09} is Septile (51º43'10") TRIPAXEPTALIS & represents Alice
 • IRANI {14SG14Rx} is Trine (119º48'31") TRIPAXEPTALIS & represents Pax
 • 1996_GQ21 {10SC08Rx} is the midpoint between GOTHA & IRANI & represents Hendoku-Iyaku

MoonCat explains different astrological aspects: Trines (360/3=120°) make up the 3rd harmonic & considered harmonious; Septiles (360/7=51.43°) are the 7th harmonic & considered mystical. the midpoint is a Bi-Novile aspect (360/9=40° | 40° x 2 = 80°): novile = 40°, bi-novile = 80°, quad-novile = 160°. numerologically, 3+3+3=9 & resonates with the novile aspects, or the 9th harmonic.

generally, EON phase for triPax asteroid is EON-13, EON phase for septAlice asteroid is EON-6 & EON phase for midpoint asteroid is EON-9 (which fits since EON-9 represents the ground of operation). if closest triPax asteroid less than 120° (as it is during this cycle) phase is EON-12. if closest septAlice asteroid less than 51.43° phase is EON-5

this is an interesting spread of asteroids. i picked GOTHA to represent Goth (named for Gotha, Germany) & picked IRANI to represent Iran (named for 2003 ISEF winner).

Delphic Oracle

The ruler whose prophesy occurs at Delphi, it neither gathers nor hides, but gives hintsFragment 93, Heraclitus

an Augur refers to a priest in ancient Rome or the eighth month of the Zork calendar. in ancient Rome, augurs took auspices by studying the flight of the birds to interpret the will of the gods — a central function of Roman society. "Who does not know that this city was founded only after taking the auspices? That everything in war and in peace, at home and abroad, was done only after taking the auspices?" (Livy).

the word inauguration comes from augurare, "to act as an augur, predict". however, an augur did not predict "but through his augury he finds signs on whether or not a course already decided upon meets with divine sanction and should proceed".
