An Achilles heel is a deadly weakness in spite of overall strength, that can actually or potentially lead to downfall. While the mythological origin refers to a physical vulnerability, metaphorical references to other attributes or qualities that can lead to downfall are common.
==========================================
Achilles
In Greek mythology, Achilles (also Akhilleus or Achilleus; Ancient Greek: Ἀ) was a Greek hero of the Trojan War, the central character and the greatest warrior of Homer's Iliad, which takes for its theme the Wrath of Achilles.

Achilles also has the attributes of being the most handsome of the heroes assembled against Troy,[1] as well as the best.

Later legends (beginning with a poem by Statius in the first century AD) state that Achillies was invulnerable in all of his body except for his heel. These legends state that Achilles was killed in battle by an arrow to the heel, and so an "Achilles' heel" has come to mean a person's principal weakness.

In Greek mythology, Achilles was a Greek hero of the Trojan War, the central character and the greatest warrior of Homer's Iliad, which takes for its theme the Wrath of Achilles. Here is a flash game based on Achilles.

I liked the character

His mother was Thetis. She was one of the Nereids which were sea goddesses, daughters of Nereus and Doris. He

His father was King Peleus of Pythia. He was the son of Aeacus who was the son of Zeus and Aegina. Aegina was the daughter of a a river god. Therefore, Achilles was the great grandson of Zeus and the great great grandson of a rivergod.

His mentor was Chiron

He fathered Neopotolemus aka Pyrrhus with Deidoamia

It was at the wedding of Peleus and Thetis, Eris threw the golden apple that inadvertently led to the Trojan War.


He was shot in the heel by Paris. The arrow was guided by Apollo.


my Achilles is in 26'11 Capricorn in 5th
trine Juno in 26'26 Virgo in 1st


Geocentric North Achilles Node in 6'01 Aquarius in 11th
square Sun in 5'20 Scorpio in 2nd
sextile Saturn in 5'08 Gemini R in 9th


Heliocentric Achilles in 6'04 Aquarius
square Earth in 5'20 Taurus

Heliocentric Achilles Nodes in 16'13 Aquarius/Leo
sextile/trine Heliocentric Mercury in 17'01 Sagittarius

cool

but Heliocentric Nodes very slowly

all heliocentric nodes of all objects move up to 1 degree per century

they are collective energies

They wouldn't be significant in synastry


on contrast, geocentric nodes of asteroids return to their positions yearly
that also goes for the nodes of Mercury,Venus,and Mars

Achilles is conjunct natal Mercury in Leo in the 8th house. For some reason many greco-roman asteroids conjunct my Sun and Mercury in the 8th house, Like Apollo, Pandora and Orcus, and I guess Achilles as well...

I'm not too keen on asteroids, so can't possibly comment.

I have 1st ruler in 10th, which can find a link between ambition, social standing, and affinity for your mother.

The 12th can indicate an Achilles heel astrologically. Capricorn is on the cusp, which would relate well to my own 1st ruler in 10th house placement.

Chart ruler is the ruler of your AScendant.

Yes, it is fine for me. Although in a great position natally, it's about to oppose most of my planets. Just another 40 or so years till the conjunction to most them planets. I can wait.
