"Cygnus was son of Mars..."
Mars is Aries, the sign of the 21st Century Schizoid Man . Cygnus represents Christ, the "son of (fallen) man". Aries, the "Ram", is also (or becomes) the "Lamb" of God (Intuition).
"...Cygnus is also called the Northern Cross with Deneb as its head and Albirio was the foot of the cross. It was only a short step from here to where it was also called the Cross of Calvary."

"The largest known star is Mu Cephei which
has a radius of 11 astronomical units. One astronomical unit is
the distance from the Earth to the Sun - 93 million miles - so this
star would encompass our solar system out to Saturn! Will all remnants
of human existence perish when the time comes for this planet to
disappear into history, as it inevitably will? Just as the organic
basis of our DNA may derive from interstellar pollution (via the
Big Bang) perhaps, one day, we will bequeath our own organic matter
to the universe."

"Andromeda was chained to a rock because her mother, Queen Cassiopeia, had
bragged that she was more beautiful than the sea nymphs, the Nereids. The
nymphs called on Poseidon, the god of the seas, for revenge. Poseidon sent a
monster, represented by the constellation Cetus, to terrorize the coast. King
Cepheus consulted the Oracle of Ammon for advice and was told to sacrifice his
daughter, Andromeda, to the sea monster. Fortunately, Perseus, who had already
beheaded another monster, Medusa, arrived in time to kill the monster and
rescue Andromeda. Perseus' reward was to marry Andromeda."

|Iphigenia was sacrificed to the gods because her father, Agamemnon, had bragged that he was a more proficient hunter than the goddess, Artemis. In her anger, Artemis sent adverse winds to keep the Greek fleet from sailing. King Agamemnon consulted a prophet for advice and was told to sacrifice his daughter, Iphigenia, to appease the goddess. Unfortunately there was no Perseus to rescue Iphigenia.|
"Cassiopeia is a beautiful constellation at the edge of the Milky Way Galaxy
and is associated
with what is known as the Perseus Constellation Family. It is in the zodiacal
sign of the Ram
wherein one finds the stars Shedir, "The Breast," Ruckbah, "The Enthroned," and
Cassiopeia is an enthroned woman, at whose right hand is a star crowned King Cepheus holding his sceptre toward her. Ancient writings describe her as his wife, and she is also referred to in other ancient sources as "The Bride, the Lamb's wife."

"By virtue of this stone the Phoenix is burned to ashes, in which she is
reborn. Thus does the Phoenix molt her feathers, after which she shines
dazzling and bright, and as lovely as before. However ill a mortal man may be,
from the day on which he sees the Stone, he cannot die for that week, nor does
he lose his color. For if anyone, maid or man, were to look at the Grail for
two hundred years, you would have to admit that his color was as fresh as in
his early prime...Such powers does the Stone confer on mortal men that their
flesh and bones are soon made young again. This stone is also called the Grail."

"I have occasionally spoken of a light in the soul which is uncreated and
uncreatable. . . . This
light is not satisfied with the simple, still and divine being which neither
gives nor takes, but
rather it desires to know from where this being comes. It wants to penetrate to
ground, to the still desert, into which distinction never peeped, neither
Father, Son nor Holy
Spirit. There, in that most inward place, where everyone is a stranger, the
light is satisfied,
and there it is more inward than it is in itself, for this ground is a simple
stillness which is
immovable in itself. But all things are moved by this immovability and all the
forms of life are
conceived by it..."
- Meister Eckhart
"In the deeps are the violence and terror of which psychology has warned us.
But if you ride these monsters deeper down, if you drop with them farther over
the world's rim,
you find what our sciences cannot locate or name, the substrate, the ocean or
matrix or ether
which buoys the rest, which gives goodness its power for good, and evil its
power for evil,
the unified field: our complex and inexplicable caring for each other, and for
our life together here.
This is given. It is not learned."
