The constellation Hercules was culminating, with Venus, on Evel Knievel's
Greeks called the figure "Engonasin" - here's part of what Manilius (ca 10
AD) had to
say about Engonisin:/Hercules
. If perchance his mind is moved to consider a profession, Engonasin will
inspire him with enthusiasm for risky callings, with danger the price for
which he sells his talents: he will plant firm feet on a horizontal
tightrope; then, as he attempts an upward route to heaven (on a sloping
tightrope), he will repeatedly slide back from footholds newly gained and,
suspended in mid-air, he will keep a multitude in suspense upon
August 7, 1974, when tightrope artist Phillipe Pettit walked a line strung
between New York's World Trade Center towers, Neptune was aligned with 59
Herculis, and the NNode with 70 Herculis!)
Evel Knievel's MC was Kornephoros, Beta Herculis.
Manilius' material is just amazing.
