Asteroids Hekate 100 & Sampo 2091 The Astrologer’s Asteroids   Leave a comment

Sun Moon tree

Night time sharpens, heightens each sensation

Darkness stirs  and wakes imagination

Silently the senses abandon their defenses

Helpless  to resist the notes I write

For I compose the music of the night

Hekate is Goddess of the night, especially moonless starry ones.

“In the deep stillness of the midnight hour … she [Medea] stretched her arms to the stars … O Nox [Nyx the Night], Mother of Mysteries, and all ye golden Astra (Stars) who with Luna succeed the fires of day, and thou, divine triceps Hecate, who knowest all my enterprises and dost fortify the arts of magic.” – Ovid, Metamorphoses 7.162

Hekate Goddess of the night knows all our enterprises, they are written in the stars.  Hekate rules the art of Astrology, natal Hekate highlighted in the chart gives the individual a knowledge / talent and ability to turn to the sky at night for answers.  Hekate rules our ability to use intuition when looking at the natal chart to see the themes played out in that person’s life; through Hekate we gain an insight into the situations past through to present, and experiences of the other person in dealing with those situations.

Slowly, gently night unfurls its splendor

Grasp it, sense  it, tremulous and tender

Turn your face away from the garish light of day

Turn your thoughts away from cold unfeeling light

And listen to the music of  the night

Phantom Of The Opera – Music Of The Night

The Sampo is a legendary device in finnish mythology, one interpretation is that it was a magical astrolabe, the most common interpretation is that it is The World Pillar or World Tree.  The World pillar is a mythical column on which the precession of the Spring Equinox turns.  Sampo highlighted in the natal chart also gives an understanding to astrological principles, and ability to see connection in the heavenly movement of planets to themes of our lives.  Sampo gives us an understanding of the mechanics of the heavenly movements and the skills of the astrologer in respects to drawing up and preparing charts.
