Asteroid Bilkis was named after the Queen of Sheba. One of my minor Mars-in-Virgo irritants is when people refer to the Queen of Sheba as if her name was Sheba. Sheba was her realm. Bilquis was her name. It is also spelled Bilkis and it is as an asteroid, number 585, currently at 11 Virgo.
Her actual life story – like that of many of the ancient queens – has become merged with religious texts, folklore, myth, and bias from historians – but she was said to be wise, dazzling, just and the subject of the only (?) vaguely erotic bit in the Christian Bible, the Song of Songs.
So…where is YOUR asteroid Bilquis?
