Map of Tokyo, Japan for The image of Hydra standing beside Virgo as she is about to bring forth her baby is a powerful and deeply troubling one. The occurrence of a dramatic meteor storm radiating from Hydra’s tail on the eve of the birth of Virgo’s son, when little of the coma-baby remained inside her womb, would have been truly extraordinary. The Birth In verse we return to the focus of verses ? that is, Virgo’s delivery of her child. According to verse a, she proceeded to give birth to a son, a male child, who will rule all the nations with an iron scepter. Evidently, the cometary baby had now, inally, descended to the point where the whole of it rose after the rising of Virgo’s vaginal opening. Her baby could therefore be regarded as born. Of course, that seemed to imply that the baby on the earth whom the cometary baby represented was born at that very time. Map of Tokyo, Japan 2016.
