Here are are all of the posts on Asteroid Circe in one place. The prompt? This…
“I rise then and go to my herbs, I create something, I transform something. My witchcraft is as strong as ever, stronger. This too is good fortune. How many have such power and leisure and defense as I do?”
Circe has always seemed to cop far too much blame for the turning the men of Odysseus into swine. Granted, i tend to automatically side with witches. But, from what i gather, it wasn’t that difficult to transform them into pigs, you get my meaning. A bunch of marauding men turning up to interrupt one’s idyll? Some of them were probably already half way there.
And then of course, there is the fact that Circe had a dalliance with a married man for god knows how long. Again, whatever. Who hasn’t been hanging out peacefully on their ‘island’ with their animals, herbs, essential oils and some absorbing projects on the go and then wham – a married dude washes up? Literally in this case. Telling tales of there being “an arrangement” and an emergency existential crisis that could potentially be relieved via an ejaculation. Cut to Penelope lighting a candle in her shrine-for-hubby-coming-home soon. Or, alternatively, Penelope was gay all along and was not even noticing the years fly by.
Asteroid Circe Is Affiliated To Black Moon Lilith and to Witch Queen Hecate
Anyway, Asteroid Circe – number 34 – is currently at 23 Libra and spends 2018 going between Libra, Scorpio and Sagittarius. In your birth chart, Circe shows interest in – yes – sorcery, the craft, herbs, scent and animal liberation.
Circe makes frequent appearances in the Horoscopes – because (1) she seems to be relevant, despite being but an asteroid and (2) she is in opposition to Uranus on and off for most of this year. Despite being from a completely different pantheon, her solo isolationist witch status lends her an affinity with Lilith and also to Hecate, of course.
