Alpha Scorpiids: Artemis: Guardian of Africa

Alpha Scorpiids: Artemis: Guardian of Africa
As I took my dogs out for a leak at 3 am on 21 April, I saw the most amazingly clear Scorpio right above me in the sky. While gazing at it in awe, a meteor (shooting star) shot right through the hook part between the heart and the tail. I have never witnessed anything more beautiful. If you live in South Africa and you can bare the cold weather, step out in the early morning hours, especially on 15 May when it will peak, wait for Artemis to shoot you a star, and make that wish, it will surely come true.

When you wish upon a star, makes no difference who you are, anything your heart desires will come to you. (Disney Movie Song).

Meteor Showers:
Exert an enormous influence on the weather /presage major world events /bring about surprising and unexpected events.








It dawned on me that Africa, especially Southern Africa, is under the powerful protection of Scorpio and its guardian Artemis, protector of animals.

The 'shooting star' is part of the Alpha Scorpiids, close to Antares the heart of the Scorpio. This galactic mansion is known for its protective qualities, its ability to hide things only to later expose it to set things right.





Scorpio Facts:

Stars:
Scorpius constellation lies in the Southern sky near the centre of the Milky Way. It is the most Southern Constellation ruled by Mars (some say Pluto). Its ruled by the element of fire. Its number is 9 and its lucky number is 12. Antares, the heart of the Scorpio is strongly under the influence of Mercury which makes it changeable and communicative (including with the spirit world).

Scorpio's brightest stars:
Crown: δ Sco (Dschubba) - its 2nd brightest star.
Heart: α Sco (Antares) - brightest star - Greek Άντάρης, meaning 'like Mars', warrior, royal star.
Tail: λ Sco (Shaula) and υ Sco (Lesath), also known as 'the cat's eyes'.

Mythology
Orion, the hunter, boasted to goddess Artemis and her mother, Leto, that he would kill every animal on the earth. Although Artemis was known to be a hunter herself she offered protection to all creatures. Artemis and her mother Leto sent a scorpion to deal with Orion. The pair battled and the scorpion killed Orion. So animal killers and abusers, beware!
The contest caught the attention of the king of the gods Zeus, who later raised the scorpion to heaven and afterwards, at the request of Artemis, did the same for Orion to serve as a reminder for mortals to curb their excessive pride. The two constellations lie opposite each other in the sky, and Orion is said to be fleeing from the scorpion as it sets just as Scorpius rises.

Origins
*Sumerians called it GIR-TAB, which means “the scorpion,” some 5,000 years ago.
*Babylonians saw it as the creature with the burning sting or constellation MUL.GIR.TAB. They saw the Scorpion's claws as the Scales (Libra).
*Indonesians saw this constellation as a swan or a coconut tree.
*In Ancient Greece, Libra was considered to be claws of Scorpius (Chelae Scorpionis), with a set of scales held aloft by Astraea (represented by adjacent Virgo - west). These constellations were divided by the Romans.
*Chinese saw Antares as the heart of the Azure Dragon.




Guardian Angel: Archangel Michael - Guardian of the South and Element of Fire. Chief of the Archangels, Angel of Justice, Strength and Protection.



Astrology
Sidereal (Vedic) Astrology (observable and measurable) places the Scorpio from 16 November until 16 December. Scorpius corresponds to the nakshatras Anuradha (crown), Jyeshtha (heart), and part of Mula (tail).
Tropical Astrology (imaginary) places it between 23 October and 21 November.


Astronomy
The Sun rises through Scorpio for just one week, from 23 November – 30 November. This area covers the crown of the Scorpio. The heart and tail of Scorpio now falls under Ophiuchus (1 - 17 December) that has stepped into Scorpio's place on the ecliptic as the heart and tail of Scorpio has dropped way below the ecliptic. People who thought that they were Sagittarius (Western Astrology - imaginary and non-observable) are actually Ophiuchus (heart of the Scorpio), the serpent wrestler also known as Serpentarius.
