Yesterday I was participating in a discussion on death fear during air flights, and I mentioned one of the major significations of the violent death in a natal chart: the influence of the evil star Algol. According to Vivian Robson, who is a contemporary authority on fixed stars, Algol “causes misfortune, violence, decapitation, hanging, electrocution and mob violence, and gives a dogged and violent nature that causes death to the native or others. It is the most evil star in the heavens.”

So, I mentioned that if a natal planet (particularly Sun or Moon) is conjunct with Algol, there is higher risk to suffer violent death and various amputations. 

When I had opened today’s news, I saw an article that immediately attracted my attention: Brazil model Mariana Bridi da Costa lost all limbs.

Here came an astrological hypothesis: her natal chart should have “something on Algol”. I asked my Portuguese friend to check Brazil sites and got the birth date, 18.06.1988. Not only does the girl have Jupiter on Algol (which well can be her ruler of the ascendent if she has Pisces ascending), but also her natal Sun and Mercury in Gemini are afflicted by the current slow and painful opposition of Saturn and Uranus. 

Poor girl.

Update of January 23. Today, a Moscow lawyer was buried, he was shot in the head by a killer. Imagine how I was surprised to see the grave plate with his date of birth, 20th of May - with Sun on Algol! 

In the medieval times, this constellation could mean decapitation by an executioner - now it is just a shot...

Update. Mariana Bridi da Costa died on January 24th.

Update. Charlize Theron had a bad neck trauma that almost decapitated her. She has a natal conjunction of detrimented Mars and Ketu on Algol.

I'm going to die a violent death. Thank you. Have a nice day.

Dude, not to scare you, but am a psychic astrologer with a 100% accuracy rate, and I have never seen a client not die a violent death with a Sun conjunct Algol. I see you dying in a plane crash and your head being decapitated by the actual crash. Check out my blog am heavily into fixed stars . Just deal, it's a quick and relatively painless death. Although I heard your brain stays alive for about three minutes. Look at the poor in Iraq. Who knew? Daniel Pearl for instance. Just be careful. I can probably tell you when you'll be the most vulnerable.

My Sun is in Taurus 26ยบ9'39" so...
What about Juan Pablo II? He has Sun conjunct Algol too. Is there some way to avoid such tragic fate? I believe in the human free will to change anything 9_9

I feel like Algol is a double edged sword and can be focused as a shield and is more of a raw force where caution is needed, like playing with wiring. Algol can be deep and evolving force. Think of the beautiful young Medusa, a mortal, either raped or seduced by the god Neptune in the most sacred temple of Pallas Athena.
It seems like Pallas set Medusa up to be a shield. IN Handel's Messiah evil is chased by Medusa
The feminine has been vilified for thousands of years and may be a bit pissed off.

Dear Heidi,

Thank you for your comment. Yes, there is big power behind Algol. The question is whether Medusa is capable to control herself or not. In practical term, the prognosis is rather negative.

May be so, may be not. She also bestows a gift, if the receiver is ready for it. It is the ability to reflect curses and send them back to their presenter.

Dear Terrie,

Thank you for your comment.

As far as I remember the original myth, the powers of Medusa were not as selective as you like to think.

I´ve got Jupiter conjunct Algol (26 Taurus) in 8th. Moon in Aquarius. According to old texts, I´m going to be decapitated or strangled. I have also Saturn square Uranus. Does that mean I´m going to lose all my limbs??? Scary!!!
