    Truly, the full Moon conjuncting Medusa's Head is not a good omen. Literally around us we see our politicians "turned to stone" and either going totally in one way or another so as to be totally out of touch!

    Algol (β Per / Beta Persei), known colloquially as the Demon Star, is a bright star in the constellation Perseus.


    The Arabic name, "al Ghul" (related to our word "ghoul"), means "the demon," from a longer phrase that refers to the demon's head. In Greek mythology, Algol represents the Medusa's head with which Perseus turned Cetus to stone, the star considered an "unlucky" one for centuries. As regular as clockwork, every 2.867... days, the brightness of the star plummets from mid second magnitude (2.1) to the dim end of third (3.4, just 30 percent of normal), the whole event (including recovery) taking only a few hours.
