"This vial," continued she, lifting up another from the casket and replacing the first, licking her thin lips with profound satisfaction as she did so,--"this contains the acrid venom that grips the heart like the claws of a tiger, and the man drops down dead at the time appointed. Fools say he died of the visitation of God. The visitation of God!" repeated she in an accent of scorn, and the foul witch spat as she pronounced the sacred name. "Leo in his sign ripens the deadly nuts of the East, which kill when God will not kill. He who has this vial for a possession is the lord of life." She replaced it tenderly. It was a favorite vial of La Corriveau. —Le Chien D'Or, William Kirby

eight types of blue moons. aphetic full moon 22-June 00CP51 (Sun 00CN51) @ 04:13:491122 UT & anaretic full moon 21-July 28CP46 (Sun 28CN46) @ 11:00:139162 UT.

Anaretic Degree. In the field of astrology the anaretic degree is the final degree of any sign, which is 29 degrees 0 minutes to 29 degrees 59 minutes. This degree is considered to be a critical degree, so any planets or celestial bodies placed within that range are likely to display the most extreme attributes of the sign or planet. Generally, when a planet is posited an anaretic degree, it the means that one cannot get enough of whatever it is they way.

Aphetic Place. In the field of astrology and aphetic place is a place in the horoscope that is highly fortunate when the benefic planets, such as the Sun, Venus and Jupiter, are placed therein. These areas are 5 degrees above the Ascendant to 25 degrees below it, 5 degrees below the Descendant to 25 degrees above it, and from 5 degrees before the ninth house cusp to the middle of the eleventh house.

Anareta, n., anaretic, a. (Gr., destroyer). The planet which destroys form; that which kills, if such a term may be applied to a planet that unfavorably aspects the hyleg (q.v.). Anaretic Point. Anaretic Place. The degree occupied by the Anareta.

Apheta: Prorogator. The planet or place that exercises an influence over the life and death of the native. v. Hyleg.

Anareta (or Interfector). The Killing, Interficient or Destroying Planet. A planet that is capable of signifying destruction and therefore offers a threat to the hyleg, ('giver or life'), at birth and by direction. The anareta may be a malefic planet, the lord of the 8th, the almuten of the lord of the 8th, or a planet placed in the 8th house. The terms of the infortunes are called anaretic degrees.

hyleg hi.leg. Astrol. Also 7 hilege, hylech. [Of obscure origin. In Pers. (and Turkish) hailaj, 'a calculation of astrologers by which they obtain evidence of the length of an infant's life', 'a nativity'; said by the Persian lexicographers to be a Greek word, meaning originally 'fountain of life'. The Pers. equivalent is given as kadbanu, lit. 'mistress of the house'. In OFr. yleg, ilech (Oresme, 14th c.). ] Ruling planet of a nativity; apheta (cf. quot. 1706).

Hyleg. The Giver of Life. Said of a planet so located as to have influence upon the longevity of the native. It is one of the most complex and controversial subjects in the field of astrology, but which has fallen more or less in disfavor as the result of the concept that any attempt to predict the time of death is now generally considered unethical. The strongest planet that occupied one of the Aphetic places became Hyleg, and was deemed to be the Apheta, the giver of life. When it had progressed to an aspect to the place of the Anareta, the taker-away of life, the native was presumed to have run his span and death ensued.

The Aphetic places were from the 25th degree of the Eighth House to the 25th degree of the Eleventh House; from the 25th degree of the Twelfth House to the 25th degree of the First House; and from the 25th degree of the Sixth House to the 25th degree of the Seventh House. If the Sun occupied any of these arcs, it became Hyleg. If not, the Moon was the next choice. Lacking either, the planet which had the most dignities at the moment of the Lunation next preceding birth. Otherwise in a Day birth the Ascendant, or in a Night birth Fortuna, became Hyleg. The Anaretic places were those occupied by Mars or Saturn, or by Sun, Moon, or Mercury if aspected by Mars or Saturn. Otherwise the Descending degree. Wilson's Dictionary gives several pages of rules and exceptions, and then characterizes the whole subject as so much rubbish. It merely amounts to a consideration of aspects formed by progressed or transitory planets to birth positions and aspects, with special attention to a prognosis of death - an application of astrological analysis that is generally frowned upon by modern astrologers.

A planet conjoined to Caput Algol, if joined to the Hyleg, was in earlier days deemed to threaten beheading; the modern equivalent is perhaps defeat at the polls.

Arabic Parts Calculator. The Arabic Parts (sometimes referred to as "Lots") have a long and honorable history in astrology stretching far back into antiquity, at least until ancient Greek times. In more modern times their influence has waned, but their peak of development occured during the Muslim scientific rennaisance of the early middle ages, hence their name. Al Biruni, a mathematician, astronomer and Sanskrit scholar, writing in the 11th century, listed a total of 97 Arabic Parts which at the time were widely used for astrological consultations. These parts consist of mathematical calculations of planetary positions (usually 3 planets) which speak to specific areas of interest in the human chart. An examination of these parts enables astrologers to view the "inner" meaning of the horoscope, going beyond the "outer" evaluations indicated by the arrangement of the planets, signs and houses.

The Scapegoat. Tyndale's reading of Leviticus 16:10 renders the Hebrew Azazel as "The goote on which the lotte fell to scape"--most likely intending something like "the goat that was suffered to escape."(FN18) The word scape is defined as an aphetic form of the common word escape, meaning a primitive usage with a missing first vowel or syllable.(FN19) The somewhat archaic term scapegrace, for example, implies a person who has eluded the grace of God. The demonized scapegoat is similarly a creature who has escaped the zone of divine protection (and sacrificial slaughter). {Azazel @ Wikipedia | Azazel @ Jewish Encyclopedia | Song of Azrael}

aphesis :: The loss of an initial, usually unstressed vowel, as in cute from acute. ETYMOLOGY: Greek, a release, from aphienai, aphe-, to let go : apo-, apo- + hienai, to send; see diesis - see double-dagger. Medieval Latin, semitone (which was indicated by a double dagger), from Latin, quarter tone, from Greek diesis, a letting through, from diienai, to send through.

And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.
