Default Demon Star Algol and Beheadings

There have been a lot of beheadings lately...

I came across this video from Steve Judd, astrologer, talking about the star named "Algol", the Demon Star. Algol deals with beheadings, losing your head, Perseus, Gorgons, Medusa, Hydra and so forth. Algol also stands for Alcohol.

Interesting stuff.

The name Algol derives from Arabic ra's al-ghūl : head (ra's) of the ogre (al-ghūl) (see "ghoul"). The English name "Demon Star" is a direct translation of this. In Hebrew folklore, Algol was called Rōsh ha Sāṭān or "Satan's Head". A Latin name for Algol from the 16th century was Caput Larvae or "the Spectre's Head".

In astrology, Algol is one of the most unfortunate stars. Ptolemy referred to it as "the Gorgon of Perseus" and associated it with death by decapitation: mirroring the myth of the hero Perseus’ victory over the snake-headed Gorgon Medusa. Historically, it has received a strong association with violence across a wide variety of cultures. Medieval Arabic commanders tried to ensure that no important battle began whilst the light of Algol was weak.
