Art 2008: Arachne’s Thread
Arachne’s Thread, paper collage by jude cowell (c) 2008 (with images from the 90s)
Usually Ariadne is the one following a thread in mythology, but here it’s Arachne. After all, Arachne’s type of spinning needs thread, too!
The asteroid Arachne’s heliocentric North Node is located at 25 Capricorn, yet this very night her transiting position is 10Libra18.
Traveling nearby (13Lib06) is the starry asteroid, Astraea, keywords: ‘justice’ and ‘law.’
As you may know, this is the same neighborhood of the zodiac as US natal Saturn from July 4, 1776–a planet which also is associated with law and with authority and control as ruler of Capricorn. (Wait a minute–is this a thread I see before me?)
Along with Uranus, Saturn, Urania, Chiron, and Mercury, Arachne may be used in charts as a very specific significator for the internet and the http://www. Her main keywords are: ‘web; network; entanglement’ and of course there is very much the spidery flavor to this lady.
Kind of like spiders crawling all over your blog and website, yes?
