Last time I checked (this afternoon), all these stellar alignments
that I listed for the 18th were still in force (orb <= 1 00'), so
I'm listing them again, with additional alignments now in effect.

>("It causes peril, dignity, piety, usefulness and acquisitiveness,
> Foramen (Eta Carinae)
and gives danger to the eyes."--Robson)
>(I think this is in Virgo the Virgin's left thigh.
> Heze (Zeta Virginis)
Where a police officer's nightstick would normally be found is
against the left thigh [if he or she is right-handed]).
>(Robur Carolinum: "It is said to give a frank, honorable, generous,

hospitable and steady nature."--Robson)
>("Called Mare Ass, A Resting Place, and the Ending or Stop."--Robson)
> Asellus Australis (Delta Cancri)
>("It gives patience, beneficence, courage, and makes its natives
> Asellus Borealis (Gamma Cancri)
heroic and defiant leaders."--Robson)
>("It...causes disease, disgrace, adventure, insolence, wantonness,
> Praesepe (M-44 Cancri)
brutality, blindness, industry, order and fecundity; and makes its
natives fortunate though liable to loss through others..."--Robson)
>("Gives...perverted tastes and mental depravity."--Robson)
> Skat (Delta Aquarii)
> Alnair (Alpha Gruis)
> Saturn Nebula (NGC 7009 Aquarii)
> Rasalhague (Alpha Ophiuchi)
>(there's been a lot of talk about how best to salvage New Orleans
> Atria (Alpha Trianguli Australe)
and the "right" way to deal with the threat of natural disasters
lately; Vladimir Yushchenko is also having to deal with criticism of
the way he's chosen to govern Ukraine lately, and Afghanistan just
held its first parliamentary election in many years)
Toliman (Alpha Centauri)
("beneficence, friends, refinement, honor."--Robson.
Rigor says this star gives a fatalistic attitude.)
(located in Chamaeleon the Chameleon's tail)
(trying to adapt oneself to the environment?)
Miaplacidus (Beta Carinae)
(Looks like it's located in the hold of the Ship Argo, or possibly
in the forecastle [the crew's quarters].
means "placid waters," according to some.
Many may be wishing for "calm waters" right now.)
>(at the end of the River Eridanus opposite Achernar, that is, the
> Cursa (Beta Eridani)
source of the river)
[getting to "the source" or "the bottom" of something? like exactly
how the response to Hurricane Katrina was messed up?]
Hasseleh (Iota Aurigae)
(I think this is in Auriga the Charioteer's left foot.
I don't know if this has any relevance, but there was once an Irish
writer named Christy Brown [a man] who had severe cerebral palsy and
published a book called *My Left Foot*, which was the part of his
body he used to write it, the only part of his body he was able to
control. It was made into a movie starring Daniel Day-Lewis as Brown.
Brown used his left foot to paint as well as write and was
reportedly quite brilliant; not bad for a guy who couldn't talk and
was thought retarded until he was ten.
Hassaleh: Someone hobbled making maximum use of their meager
IC 2118 Eridani (the Witch Head Nebula, a diffuse nebula located
near Cursa--closer to Psi Eridani, actually)
(in pop culture and legend, witches can either utter curses or
positive spells; in real life, to work effective magic[k] requires
skill and planning.
The politics of how to deal with natural disasters dominates the
news here in the US, and in Germany, Gerhard Schroeder is having to
try and put together a governing coalition to keep his job as
Sirius (Alpha Canis Majoris)
"It gives honor, renown, wealth, ardor, faithfulness, devotion,
passion and resentment, and makes its natives custodians, curators
and guardians. It also gives danger of dog bites..."--Robson.
To borrow concepts from Bernadette: Great deeds; getting burned.)
Dziban (Psi Draconis)
(a double star in the Dragon's body [on the Dragon's back].
Not sure what this means in the context. Riding the dragon, maybe?)
>("freedom, love of movement...new ideas, or headstrong stubborness."
> North Node
> Alpheratz (Alpha Andromedae)
--*Brady's Book of Fixed Stars*, pp.51, 53)
>("The greatest benefits and success will come by gentle
> Alderamin (Alpha Cephei)
determination rather than dramatic action."--*Brady's Book of Fixed
Stars,* p. 104)
>(at the tail of Corvus the Crow)
> South Node
> Algorab (Delta Corvi)
> Tso-Hia (Eta Corvi)
(News of substandard living conditions in hurricane shelters along
the Gulf Coast of the US has given way to concern about sex
offenders and other criminals among the refugees from New Orleans;
also, in Europe a child pornography ring has been busted.)
