List of Roman deities

List of Roman deities
A vast number of ancient Roman deities are known by name. The most familiar today are those the Romans identified with Greek counterparts (see interpretatio graeca), integrating Greek myths, iconography, and sometimes religious practices into Roman culture, including Latin literature, Roman art, and religious life as it was experienced throughout the Empire. Many of the Romans' own gods remain obscure, known only by name and function, through inscriptions and texts that are often fragmentary—particularly those who belong to the archaic religion of the Romans dating back to the era of kings, the so-called "religion of Numa," perpetuated or revived over the centuries. Some archaic deities have Italic or Etruscan counterparts, as identified both by ancient sources and by modern scholars. Throughout the Empire, the deities of peoples in the provinces were given new theological interpretations in light of functions or attributes they shared with Roman deities.

Astrology's Future CLICK HERE for the full 26-page article. Summary: With Uranus transiting Aries for the first time since 1927-1934, cookbook astrology would predict a New Birth of astrology's relevance around the world by 2019. As with so many beloved astrological catch-phrases, “New Birth” is vague, generally applicable and perhaps ultimately meaningless in any informative sense. Astrologers historically have enjoyed highlighting significant technological revolutions accompanying Uranus transits: Uranus’ archetype is considered synchronous not just with inventions and technology but with astrology itself. Today’s interconnected Global Mind – the internet – renders the frequency of technological research, discoveries and inventions virtually continuous. But it’s uncertain that humanity will survive to the Age of Aquarius; or, if it does, that astrology will have much to offer survivors. Can Uranus’ transit yet help astrologers forecast the future of astrology itself? What Has Astrology Been?

The Anaretic Degree The Anaretic Degree, sometimes also called the Karmic Degree, is most often referred to as the 29th degree. To better understand its significance, let's break it down mathematically. The full wheel of the zodiac contains 360 degrees and is composed of 12 houses (representing the 12 signs). Thus, each house contains 30 degrees. Each degree within a house is labeled 0-29; therefore, the 29th degree is the last degree that a planet travels through in any house. If you have a planet positioned at the 29th degree in any of the houses of the zodiac in your chart, you could say that planet is stationed at the Anaretic Degree. Your personal astrological chart is a snapshot of the planets in the heavens. Astrologers take the meaning of planets at an Anaretic Degree and encourage people to push themselves in the directions of the planet's characteristics. Below is a list of the meanings of each of the planets when they are positioned at the Anaretic Degree.

Moon Phases Why does the Moon have phases? At the new Moon phase, the Moon is so close to the Sun in the sky that none of the side facing Earth is illuminated (position 1 in illustration). In other words, the Moon is between Earth and Sun. At first quarter, the half-lit Moon is highest in the sky at sunset, then sets about six hours later (3). At the new Moon phase, the Moon is so close to the Sun in the sky that none of the side facing Earth is illuminated (position 1 in illustration). You can create a mockup of the relationship between Sun, Earth, and Moon using a bright lamp, a basketball, and a baseball. When is the Harvest Moon? The full Moon that occurs closest to the autumnal equinox is commonly referred to as the "Harvest Moon," since its bright presence in the night sky allows farmers to work longer into the fall night, reaping the rewards of their spring and summer labors. In fact, each full Moon of the year has its own name, most of which are associated with the weather or agriculture.

ERIS : Greek Goddess of Strife & Discord | Mythology, w/ pictures | Roman Discordia ERIS was the goddess or spirit (daimona) of strife, discord, contention and rivalry. She was often represented specifically as the daimon of the strife of war, who haunted the battlefield and delighted in human bloodshed. Because of Eris' disagreeable nature she was the only goddess not to be invited to the wedding of Peleus and Thetis. When she turned up anyway, she was refused admittance and, in a rage, threw a golden apple amongst the goddesses inscribed "To the fairest." Eris was closely identified with the war-goddess Enyo.

Constellations of Words THE STELLIUM - 4 or more planets in the same House : Lynn Koiner - Astrological Research THE STELLIUM by Lynn Koiner A stellium occurs when 4 or more planets fall in a House. This configuration creates too much energy coming into the activities and affairs of that House. 1st HOUSE: When 4 or more planets fall in the 1st House, so many energies are coming into the personality segment that the individual can change from one day to the next. NOTE: Lyndon Johnson had a stellium in Virgo with Leo rising. 2nd HOUSE: Too much energy in the 2nd House is not good for finances, even though these people can do well salary-wise. 3rd HOUSE: Many planets here can produce a “mental collector” with all sorts of ideas and mental interests. The daughter of one client writes ads freelance but she obsesses over ideas causing mental frustration. An old astrological axiom is that, if the ruler of the 2nd House is part of a 3rd House stellium, the individual has a lot of ideas about making money but NO MONEY! One individual with a Virgo stellium has lupus. I have observed this stellium firsthand.

Astrological symbols Astrological symbols are images used in various astrological systems to denote relevant objects. A number of such images are shown below. History and origin[edit] Symbols for the classical planets, zodiac signs, aspects, lots, and the lunar nodes appear in the medieval Byzantine codices in which many ancient horoscopes were preserved.[1] In the original papyri of these Greek horoscopes, there were found a circle with the glyph representing shine( ) for the Sun and a crescent for the Moon.[2] The written symbols for Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, and Saturn have been traced to forms found in late Greek papyri.[3] The symbols for Jupiter and Saturn are identified as monograms of the initial letters of the corresponding Greek names, and the symbol for Mercury is a stylized caduceus.[3] A. S. Symbols for Uranus and Neptune were created shortly after their discovery. , invented by J. , was suggested by Lalande in 1784. Pluto, like Uranus, has two symbols in use. Meanings of the symbols[edit]

The Complete Node Book: Understanding Your Life's Purpose by Kevin Burk The Complete Node Book: Understanding Your Life's PurposeFrom "Introducing the Moon's Nodes" by Kevin BurkPosted by: DailyOM Introducing the Moon's Nodes The Moon's nodes are probably the most misunderstood points in astrology. Although few astrologers would dispute their importance in the chart, equally few astrologers could offer a modern, supportive interpretation of the nodes, what they represent, and why. As modern astrology moved away from the extremely fatalistic and often very negative traditional style of interpreting the planets, the nodes too received a facelift of sorts to make working with them more empowering. One of the difficulties in coming up with a truly comprehensive understanding of what the nodes represent in the natal chart is that the Moon's nodes are the only points in the chart that do not have an associated Western mythology. Let's review what we know about the nodes so far. Let's look at the Moon first, and get a feel for what the Moon brings to this process.
