glyphs were designed by Zane B Stein as possible symbols for 1994 TA. Several of my fellow astrologers and I agree that Pylenor is the name that best suits this body.
We do not know the exact moment 1994 TA was discovered, but we do know that the photographic plate was shot on October 2, 1994, and that the body was discovered later the same day as the plate was studied. Its discovery position was 18 Aries 31. (The Sabian Symbol for this degree is "A magic carpet of oriental imagry.")
1994 TA has an orbit of around 69.2 years, and orbits (like Chiron) between Saturn and Uranus. It currently reaches Perihelion at 21 CAP 52, and its North Node is at 20 Leo 12.
It?s inclination to the ecliptic is 5.4, (Chiron's is 6.9), and the orbital eccentricity is 0.301 (Chiron's is 0.379.) It seems to be one of the smallest Centaurs.
There is not a lot of mythology about Pylenor, but the most common story connects him with Pholus and Chiron. When the wild Centaurs smelled the wine in Pholus home, and went on a rampage trying to get at it, Heracles used his Hydra-blood-poison-tipped arrows to begin killing them before they over-ran the place. Pholus met his demise as a result of one of Hercules' Hydra's-blood poison-tipped arrows...in an attempt to aid his fellow centaurs, Pholus attempted to pull a poisoned arrow from the wounded centaur, Pylenor, whereupon he accidentally dropped the arrow piercing his own foot. Pylenor did not die right away, but made it to the river Anigrus, where he tried to wash the poison away. From then on, the river was tainted, always having a very peculiar, nasty odor.
Thus, Pylenor washed his wounds in the river, and made the river "unclean" due to the odour of these wounds and his blood... there is something of redemption in this imagry. Also, I feel that Pylenor is connected to the idea of "Unclean by association."
A few possible keywords include: poison, infection, exposed wound, cleansing the wound. I think it also refers to the necessity, at times, of applying toxic substances in small quantities in order to help stimulate a person's antibody creation or healing processes.
His name, I understand, means "mountain pass", which may be seen as the region between Saturn and Uranus.
