      Interesting - I'll have to check that out! One of the four
      narcolepsy charts in Rodden's American Book of Charts has
      Mercury at 24 Scorp - it's 1913, so precession-correction
      brings it to 25 +; another has the NNode at 22.5 Scorp, it's
      1901, so add precession and you get 24 Scorp. One has Sun 27
      Leo, area of the Lion's head (that's how it works - the sky
      figures relate to body parts!)

      Wow, Judy - your story affirms that this is indded a very "head-y" area:

      We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars...
      -Oscar Wilde (SNode here), Lady Windemere's Fan

      Wild-Beast Lupus combines with a coil of shaman Ophiuchus'
      huge Serpent here, and both share these longitudes with
      stars of Ts'ang-Loung, the huge, ancient Chinese Dragon and
      our Draco, the Dragon (the writhing Nâkhâsch qadmôn - "Old
      Serpent" of the Phoenicians), that encircles the boreal
      pole. Domineering, drawn to power and the sheer enjoyment of
      wielding it, these children-of-the-beasts bring a sense of
      adventure and discovery to all they do, sometimes taking
      excessive risks. Drawn to all that is weird, wild and
      dramatic, their extravagant and unrestrained imaginations
      combine with a deep sensuality and a keen awareness of the
      beast within. Often cultured and intellectual, with a love
      of study and learning, they tend at the same time to be
      activists, implementing deeply-held beliefs, determined to
      live up to them and to bring about universal awareness of
      the need for changes in society and culture. A streak of
      arrogance lurks just under the surface; there is often a
      sharp edge to their personas, and they do not suffer fools
      gladly. Most here are extremely sensual, and sexuality plays
      a central part in their lives and personal identities.
      Natural organizers, directors and drillmasters, they are
      often polymaths: favored fields include astronomy,
      astrology, medicine (esp surgery and public health issues),
      the military (esp air and motorized warfare innovations),
      aviation, mathematics, philosophy, mysticism, the occult and
      psychic research, art (esp sculpture) and literature, with a
      particular gift for poetry and imagery. Given their
      proximity to these wild sky-creatures, the stars of Libra's
      scales-of-the-law have a hard time keeping order and
      balance, and sometimes they lose the struggle, reverting to
      their ancient role as the claws of the Scorpion: criminals,
      murderers and mass killers are found under these stars
      (Lupus was "The Beast of Death," and Manilius associated
      Hercules with risk-taking, craftiness, desertion, deceit,
      terrorism and street thugs), as well as those trapped in
      prisons, and/or alcohol or drug dependencies. Serpents,
      however, because of their ability to shed their skins and
      grow new ones, are known for their powers of change and
      regeneration, and these stars offer great potential for
      reform and renewal. This is a place where the worlds of man
      and nature, man and animals collide and/or interact, and it
      is the task of those with planets here to employ the fierce,
      creative energies of the beast within without allowing it to
      take control, with an issue of daring and audacity vs
      caution, apathy or lack of willingness to take risks. Under
      the Scales, there may be scandals or problems caused or
      precipitated by government interference. Here the healing
      Serpent, together with the bright Scales of Justice, right
      hand of Centaurus and strong right arm of Hercules offer
      strength, willpower and a determination to seek justice and
      right wrongs. Head, brain and prostate ailments; accidents,
      esp to head, arms, hands, addictions. Fires (including some
      huge conflagrations), explosions, storms, high winds,
      floods, shipwrecks, fogs and disasters caused by weather,
      violence, murder, massacres, meteorite falls, animal
      encounters and animal attacks (the Lupus Loop is opposite
      Algol, Beta Perseii)
