The Hero’s journey, Perseid Meteor Shower

The Perseid Meteor showers are annual very prolific meteor  showers appearing to us to be emanating from the Constellation Perseus. They peak tonight August 12 and tomorrow.

In Greek Mythology Perseus was the legendary founder of Ancient Mycenae and to the Perseid dynasty of Danaans, was the first hero. He was a hero who defeated various archaic monsters which are psychological complexes personified and archetypal symbols which became the founding myths of the Twelve Olympians.
Perseus beheaded the Gorgon Medusa whose head was crowned with dreadlocks as she was an African Amazon which was misinterpreted as snakes. Although serpent power was connected to Goddess tribes. He also rescued and  saved Andromeda who was chained to a rock from the sea monster Cetus. Perseus was the son of the mortal Danaë and the god Zeus. He was also the great grandfather of Heracles, also a son of Zeus.

The hero's Journey Tara Greene

Perseus Cycle 7, The Doom Fulfilled, 1888 by Edward Burne-Jones 

The modern-day Percy Jackson books for teens and films is a modern take on the ancient myths.

Joseph Campbell, author of many books most famously The Hero with a Thousand Faces described the Ancient archetypal stories that are repeated over and over again everywhere in the world from ancient camp fires in caves to the big screen Hollywood blockbuster of today and tomorrow. Harry Potter, Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Lord of The Rings, aall the marvel comic characters, Superman, Batman, and Aladdin, are part of these stories

The Hero/ Heroine’s journey is this:

The Hero/heroine is introduces in his EVERYDAY World where they receive the CALL TO ADVENTURE.  At first RELUCTANT, to cross the first gateway or threshold. Eventually the hero/heroine meets with Tests, allies and enemies. They reach the   darkest most forbidden and scariest place, usually a labyrinth, Hell, or other Nightmarish place. Here they must face the Supreme Ordeal. The hero/heroine seizes the sword, Grail, jewel, Lamp or other treasure and is then pursued back to their place of origin. The hero/heroine is resurrected and transformed by the experience of facing the Dragon, defeating the giant, escaping the whale, tomb, or near death.  They return to their ordinary world with a treasure, boon, Elixir or benefit to offer the world.

 During the peak of the Meteor shower tonight and until Friday, the as above, so below symbols are to make  wishes to be the hero/heroine of your own life; to be more courageous in facing your own demons and shadows where you eventually discover the treasure within.

This also ties in with Saturn still hanging in there at 28+ degrees Scorpio. Saturn is the dragon, our own internal projected demons/daemons. I am struggling with my own Saturn stuff here. So please patience is a Saturnine virtue. We may do the belated support group on Google.

Jupiter Direct Astrology,Thor and his sexy hammer, Are you ready to rock on?

FAST RELIEF is 5 days away. Your best laid intentions gone nowhere? Your sex life bombed? Didn’t get the raise?

Been having a harder time sticking with your diet?  Conquering an addiction or life just feels like  my 14-year-old daughter says.

” IT SUCKS TO BE YOU.”

seem’s like you’re an upended turtle that  nada is moving forward?

BLAME IT ON JUPITER’s RETROGRADE motion since Oct 5, 2012 that’s why.  Just like Mercury Retrograde,  Jupiter does that nasty too.

It’s hard to get ahead when Jupiter/ THOR  is Retrograde.

Thor/Zeus/Jupiter astrology

THOR in Viking mythology is a personification of Jupiter, aka Zeus, throwing lightning bolts to the Greeks. 

THOR, the BIG  hammer guy, is popping up as a cultural hero again. SUPER HERO for our age

Jupiter is MR. BIG, ruler of sign Sagittarius and Pisces traditionally. Jupiter rules OPTIMISM. Good humour, luck, abundance,honesty 

Ask yourself 

Have things been more serious while Jupiter is Retro in your life?  Has your sex life bombed? 

What do Retro Gods do? Hang out in God caves, lounge with their sport buddies, tell big jokes and smoke big cigars, bowl,carouse,

RETROGRADE JUPITER holds back all the actions Jupiter rules- such as

Jupiter rules the LIVER, the largest organ in the body,  therefore de-toxing,

arteries, pelvis, thighs, a euphemism for sex,cholesterol, gout, weight problems,cataracts, intoxication. sports, publishing, higher law, education, philosophy, travel, adventure, generosity,  fertility, animals,  gotta have it all, spirituality, religion, compassion, bliss,creativity, the arts.

Lawyers are Jupiter ruled, they are supposed to be honest; athletes, philanthropists, Santa Claus is a Jupiter type figure. 

Didn’t get that expected raise lately?

Did you have a lean Xmas?

All you hard to hold down Sagittarius and floaty Pisceans  are frothing at  the bit for THOR to get Thundering again.

Check out where the damage has been in your natal chart- where  are Sagittarius and  PISCES  in your natal chart. Houses? aspects?

 You can go to ASTRODIENST – http://www.astrodienst.com a very reliable free  European site.

Jupiter in Gemini is weak as he is in the opposite sign of the one he ruled. THOR WEAK? 

Jupiter turns DIRECT Jan 30 @ 3:37 am PST/ 6:37 am EST at 6 degrees 19 minutes of the TWINS

If you are  SAGITTARIAN, a PISCES  or a GEMINI you should feel THOR’s hammer start to rock with Thunder

and sparks of lightning beginning to fly!

It will take until April 25 for Jupiter to pass 16 degrees 25 minutes of Gemini where it left off last Oct.

So use the forward Jupiter action to work in the shadow period with full plans to BIRTH your new projects on that date and after in April.

Writers, artists, collective spiritual work, imagers, photographers, publishers,teachers the  re-writing of laws are all in the agenda NOW.

Your usually optimistic bouncing ball, buoyant humored self  will be back soon…

JUPITER WILL BE SWIMMING IN YOUR POOL SOON CANCER’s 

CANCER peeps it will be your BEST YEAR in 12, when Jupiter enters the MOST FEMININE motherly nurturing sign on JUNE 26.

I can’t wait to hammer the road ahead out.
