MIRACLES HAPPEN WHEN HYGEIA CONJUNCTS ASTEROID ERYNIA IN A NATAL CHART
Welcome back to Karen and Brad’s ongoing tale of Brad’s miraculous recovery from near-death. The tale also includes, in parts one and two, Karen’s joyful determination, as a Hygeia conjunct Sun in in Scorpio in the 3rd house mother, to restore her treasured son to health. Her journey to make her beloved son Brad’s life affirming journey possible included her belief in miracles (Neptune conjunct Hygeia conjunct Sun, all in Scorpio conjunction Venus in Sagittarius) which she communicated endlessly to Brad’s hospital care givers, nurses, doctors, surgeons and probably the cleaners and administrators in Brad’s hospital ward. It has, so far been a three-year, three-month victory against giving up; a victory against leaving Brad in a vegetative state; a victory for her goal of having her son pressing forward medically, so he is walking, talking, eating, happy and living a productive life as a restored and shining Hygeia in Gemini conjunction Erynia, sextile Sun in Leo, trine Jupiter in Aquarius man and much-loved son.
In the short article on “Hygeia, Goddess of Sanitation and Hygeia, the author of Greek Medicine.net maintains that Hygeia is the personification of the value of diet and hygiene in health maintenance and disease prevention and she is the complement to her father/partner Asclepius. The author continues that, “We look to Asclepius for medical miracles in times of crisis…, but we must do all we can to maintain our health and prevent disease ourselves. The body has amazing powers of self-healing if we keep it clean and live in accordance with Nature’s laws.” This is the stage Brad is at self-healing the moment as he is finally able to eat rather than being fed through a tube.
In his book, Spontaneous Healing, Dr. Andrew Weil, (who is a well-known author in the field of Natural Health) classifies diverse methods and attitudes to medicine and health as being either chiefly Ascelepian or Hygeian. He sees most natural, holistic, alternative medical systems are in the Hygeian camp, whereas modern medicine is overwhelmingly Ascelepian. The Hygeian approach, he maintains, is ultimately the most positive and empowering.
Like fellow academic Georgia Petridou, in her article “Asclepius the Divine Healer, Asclepius the Divine Physician: Epiphanies as Diagnostic and Therapeutic Tools”, I have found that Ascelepius and Hygeia are hallmarks of a divine revelation and Brad’s miraculous cure point to Karen and Brad’s strong Hygeia in their horoscopes, with Karen praying to the archangels and meditating with them daily. Brad has the asteroid Ascelepius in Virgo in his sixth house and exactly on his Descendant, giving the indication of a miracle cure as a measure of health.
THESE ARE THE DESCRIPTIONS OF HYGEIA’S POWERS BY ANCIENT GREEK WRITERS
“Virgin Hygeia… mild and kind… [who loves and works with her family, always holds] a serpent, which she is feeding from a cup….,. the goddess of physical health, is [also] the giver or protectress of mental health…”. (Aeschylus. Eumenides, p. 522, 5th century BC)
“Truly blooming health (Hygeia)….” Aeschylus, Agamemnon, p. 1001.ff
“To Hygeia (Health), prolific queen. Hear me, life-bearing Hygeia, of beauteous mien, mother of all; [smiter] of diseases dire, bringer of bliss.” Orphic Hymn 68 to Hygeia (Greek hymns C3rd B.C. to 2nd A.D.)
“Bright-eyed mother, highest queen of Apollon’s (the Sun’s) golden throne, desirable [for health], gently-laughing Hygeia (Health).” Licymnius, Fragment 769, from Sextus Empiricus, Against the Ethicists, Greek Lyric V, C4th B.C.
THE ERINYES BECOMING THE EUMENIDES (but the asteroid is called Erynia.)
Once Athena decreed that the Erinyes would become the Eumenides the former vengeful Dementer-type women who sent wrong doers mad with not a hint of mercy, became benevolent, good-natured, warm, affectionate, tender, loving, compassionate, considerate, thoughtful and beneficent, seeking libations, protective and helpful. Maybe you have Erynia in your horoscope, aspecting your Hygeia. Brad does and this is the past life I saw for him today.
First of all, I sought the time. It was about 12,000 years ago and Erynia today was at 27 Cancer in his fifth house of joy squaring his Mars conjunct Chiron at 27 Libra in his 8th house of past lives and family genetic inheritance. This clearly indicates a turning point.
Secondly, I began looking for Brad’s Erynia past life as his surrogate I picked a Doreen Virtue angel card which said, “SIGNS!” and the reading said, “Look for signs and symbols because the angels are trying to get your attention.” The Mars-Chiron in the 8th house of bridging between dimensions can be old wounded past life or past life energy transformed into new healing energy OR old past life healing ability is about to be given to you, but you must begin to help others and this is soul quest.
But the research for my Hygeia and the Asteroid books indicated overwhelmingly that the many “Hygeia -Aspecting Erynia” people had experienced Near Death Experiences .
THE ERYNIA PAST LIFE in Brad’s eyes as I am only the surrogate for his spirit: “I see a grove of lilac trees. I see the most beautiful ethereal maidens floating through but suddenly they are attacked by wild men who seek to take the maidens home as wives. They are great hulking brutes. I am one of them.
A giant being appears, a thunder and lightning spirit full of sparks, smoke and fire and horrible noise and he wants to fry us. The maidens run, all bar one who stands her ground and shouts, “Have mercy on them!”
The thunder being turns them into defenseless rabbits, but the girl is angry and hardly meek and mild and she shouts again, “Stop! That one and she points to me. Save him. We will keep him.”
Then the maidens take me to a misty place (sort of teleporting. I was too dazed to know what was happening), clearly a place of immortals. I could glean that much, for they weren’t substantial like humans, but I dared not poke them. In those times when Atlantis still existed everything was God. We were all divine and scared. All was one, all joined, no separation.
It is a dimension of plenty, abundance, a shining, golden place full of pure love, kindliness and mercy. I stay there forever, but occasionally I long to be human again and the longing grows and multiplies and the maiden who helped to me and strokes my brow. “Bar-el”, she says, “We will fulfill your wishes, but there are conditions. She told me and I agreed.
I am returned to the lilac grove, which looks the same, but I have the knowledge I accrued in the otherworld. I spend the rest of my life helping others, especially the violent, brutal ones, because I am still giant, bearded and I look superficially brutal, but if you look more deeply my heart shines and I am alive for all sentient beings.
Occasionally, I go to the lilac grove, and the maiden I met eons ago, from here, appears and teaches me new knowledge.
AESCHYLUS, THE ANCIENT GREEK WRITER WHO HAS KEPT THE EUMENIDES [the asteroid Erynia] IN THE COLLECTIVE UNCONSCIOUS
Around 2,500 years ago the famous Greek writer Aeschylus who wrote the play, Agamemnon. Agamemnon, was the lover of Cassandra and leader of the Greek armies at the Trojan war.
Although Aeschylus wrote 90 plays one of the only ones to survive is The Oresteia Trilogy (Agamemnon, Libation Bearers and The Eumenides.) It is vital to this article that I mention that Aeschylus is said to have described his work as ‘morsels from the feast of Homer,’ as Brad is also known as Homer.
WHAT DOES THE ASTEROID ERYNIA DO? AND WHAT DO ERYNIA AND HYGEIA DO TOGETHER?
The three women, who in ancient Greece were known as the Fates, also known as the Furies, the Greek Erinyes and later the serpent goddess Athena when they were transformed into the “kindly ones” who give beneficence, were then called the Eumenides, in Greco-Roman mythology. Thus, Erynia is the underworld collective chthonic goddess of vengeance transformed into a second chance at life.
In all the horoscopes I have collected, for my book, Hygeia and the Asteroids, people who have the asteroid Erynia aspecting Hygeia, most have Near Death Experiences where beneficent angelic beings cleanse and purify them of their previous karmic problems and them back to life in a miraculous manner.
According to the Greek poet Hesiod, they were the daughters of Gaea (Earth.) They were known as Alekto (Unceasing Anger), Tisiphone (Avenger) and Megaera (Jealous). These three (Fates or Dementers as they would be known in the Harry Potter series) lived in the underworld (the unconscious) and ascended to earth (consciousness) to pursue the wicked.
They were often identified with spirits of the fertility and abundance of the earth.
Clearly, Hygeia and Erynia conjunct in Gemini in the fourth house produce good health from one’s family. They create well-being from being benevolent and compassionate to family and maybe well being as a builder, interior decorator, buying real estate and they have good health from being with mother and family and soul ties with family. In Gemini usually one may have to watch one communication, but also lungs, throat, speech, larynx and do not smoke.
I can tell you because I did Brad’s Hygeia past life. This life is a few hundred years after the Erynia lifetime. This is Brad speaking:
I see whales, giant whales. I am a sailor, not alone, but with men and one woman for luck. We are seeking a mythical fish who is a friend to man-kind. His name is Freed-eee. It could be Fred -eee.
He is my friend from my dreams. Every night he comes to me in my nightly big dreams (for I am an oracle (Hygeia in Gemini quincunx Kassandra in Scorpio in 9th house.) He tells me what I should know. He is a knowledge giver, a wise one, an Atlantean light man, who comes in the guise of a fish, but he is my spiritual guide. The guide of my soul for this life.
The men think this giant mythical fish is real. I have lucid dreams and I tell my fish Fred-ee about the men.
Barr-el, he calls me. I will appear to your men as a giant rainbow fish. That will make them happy. I am overjoyed and everyone sees him. He is as giant as the whales. He tells them things about their soul quest and they are happy beyond belief. I love Fred-ee. He is so full of love.
BRAD’S NATAL CHART
Brad has a fan/funnel chart with Saturn in Aries in his 2nd house. This indicates that he Saturn in Aries which indicates that he:
- Has a great deal of inherent common sense, which he will learn gradually?
- Maybe frustrated with the delays and frustrations of the energy and drive of normal Aries,
- Has a strong need for security,
- seeks immediate gratification and quick fixes, thus these painful years in hospital have taught patience,
- is a trail-blazer, is dependable and organized, may act childishly at times, which by now is a thing of the past. By watching his mother, the doctors, surgeons, dieticians, the physiotherapists, social workers and the compassionate caregivers, in short, the team of people devoted to saving and improving his life the immaturity would have disappeared,
- a man battles for what his beliefs,
- a man who considers things deeply
He also has Saturn in his 2nd house which means that,
- He is thrifty and a hard worker,
- Success comes slowly to him so he practices gratefulness meditation,
- Because of a poor background he has, in his early life build a house and gathered security
He has a Pisces ascendant which matches Karen’s Sun in Neptune. Thus, with his Mercury in Virgo opposite he matches his pragmatic, organized, utilitarian ways of thinking to his spiritual beliefs (Pisces beliefs.)
His Jupiter is trine Hygeia in Aquarius in his 12th house, so he is a friend to mankind and can influence the collective.
His Neptune is in Capricorn 28 degrees in his 11th house of hopes and dreams squaring Chiron conjunct Mars. He is a fisherman.
Brad had no clear aspect configuration,
BUT BRAD HAS TWO LARGE SQUARING STELLIUMS:
Hygeia 16, Hades 17, Noemi 15 and Erynia 15 degrees 24 minutes in GEMINI IN HIS 4TH HOUSE
HADES can mean deterioration, but it is in the charts of many healers and activists and amazons when its conjuncts or aspects Hygeia.
NOEMI : Hank Friedman states that there are a few possibilities with asteroid Noemi: The name Noemi is derived from the Hebrew Naamah, meaning “pleasant, delightful”. Consequently, Noemi may give a gracious, amiable and congenial nature. Maybe a position of social prestige may be attained. With Hygeia you would gain well being from being a friend to others and soul wise you have come in as a sociable, likeable person.
Mercury 13, Anubis 15, Black Moon 16, North Node 20 and Venus 20 degrees of VIRGO in his 7th house.
MERCURY. We all know that Mercury is communication, the throat chakra and short term travel. Mercury is a psychopomp and can travel between the world of Earth, heavenly realms and the underworld like Hecate. He is Hermes the alchemical god and the alchemist.
ANUBIS The asteroid Anubis , the jackal headed was the son of the Nepthys and Osiris a god of death and the underworld. He was the god of death, mummification, embalming, the afterlife, cemeteries, tombs, and the Underworld. Besides having a similarity to Hades he is clearly a god of the Bardo or afterlife (life between lives.)
THE BLACK MOON . The Black Moon looks at your (Jungian) shadow and forces you spiritually to become your soul core or essence regardless of your qualifications, career, wealth or social standing.
NORTH NODE is our soul’s intended pathway in this lifetime and one can use the gifts from the south node past lives, but not fall back into the negative behaviours of the south node. In his past lives Brad lived Piscean lives and usually indicates means escaping reality in some way or being a
VENUS is clearly love, our attractions and values.
What I can see here are possible indications of near death (Anubis and the Black Moon), and actually going to the underworld, but being saved from death by love (Venus) and his mother’s practical detailed work of endless positive communication (Mercury) with hospital staff and communication and brain neurological functioning and diet, all to keep Brad’s recovery evolving. The north Node in Virgo seems to be the nuts and bolts functioning of healing and hospital procedures and Brad’s mother becoming an expert here to save him.
ERYNIA AND HYGEIA definitely save the day and the beings from Brad’s past lives in his Erynian and Hygeian lives may well have intervened. The maiden from Brad’s Erynian life may well be his soul partner because NOEMI is also an indication of marriage, partnership and with Hygeia conjunct Noemi this may be a soul union forever. I must go back to find her name.
The crux of the whole chart is Mercury, because it rules Virgo and Gemini and Brad must keep communicating on an earthly and heavenly level.
I hope that you enjoyed this article.
Karen and Brad I send my love and I give to all who read this my blessings and a hug,
