Telephus #5264 is an asteroid with an orbital period of 11.9 years. The mythology behind this particular asteroid is not terribly clear, as the elements of the story differ so greatly. Telephus was the son of Heracles and princess Auge. Whether it was Telephus' mother or father who put him in a position to be exposed on a mountain top where he ended up being saved and suckled by either a deer or sheep, is not known for sure. As Telephus grew, he became determined to discover his origins and so consulted an oracle. The information he received sent him on a whirlwind of a journey that had him consulting more oracles, fighting and warring, loving and creating some local drama, and finally seeing him revered as a national hero.
One thing the mythologies surrounding this figure have in common is the consulting of Oracles. Telephus was compelled to seek out a trusted Oracle when the going got tough. He believed what he was told and acted accordingly. Telephus did not question anything the Oracle instructed him to do and so was rewarded with experiences saved for those who trust in that that knows best, even if it is not a rational knowing.
Telephus is basically about trust in one's intuitive processes and in the warnings and telling of those who frankly, can see farther and clearer than ourselves. We consult our own modern oracles when we cannot see clearly or need information not tainted by our own wishful thinking or personal judgements. Telephus figures in to my practice a lot when I have a professional intuitive contact me for advice. Often, we can see clearly for others but our own issues are too thick to clearly negotiate through on our own. This are the times when we reach out to one who knows more, can see clearer, or has some wisdom we lack.
Telephus is a fun one to look at in synastry in comparison to another who's teachings, advice or writings we follow. Often, their Mercury, ascendant, Chiron,
Mid heaven, Uranus or Neptune will have a connection to our Telephus.
Telephus in the natal chart in aspect to a planet will tell where a main source of personal intuitive information is coming from. Look to see what house the planet in aspect to Telephus rules to see what area of life is motivating the things of Telephus, look to the house that Telephus falls into to see where the effects of this asteroid show up in our lives.
