Key Star Alignments

Object Constellation Ecliptic Lon Ecliptic Lat
Polaris Ursa Minor (Alpha) 88.7881 +66.1035
According to Ptolemy the bright stars of Ursa Minor are like Saturn and in some degree like Venus. It is said to give indifference and improvidence of spirit, and to lead to many troubles. By the Kabalists it is associated with the Hebrew letter Tau and the 21st Tarot Trump “The Universe.”
Betelgeuse Orion (Alpha) Kesil 88.9748 -16.0250
Alpha (α Betelgeuze) alone constituted the 4th nakshatra (Hindu Moon Mansion), Ardra, Moist, depicted as a Gem, with Rudra, the storm-god, for its presiding divinity, and so, perhaps, the origin of the long established stormy character of Orion.


By the Kabalists it is associated with the Hebrew letter Aleph and the 1st Tarot Trump “The Juggler.”

Epsilon Crater Crater 176.4673 -13.4702
According to Christian legend, the Holy Grail was the dish, plate, or cup used by Jesus at the Last Supper, said to possess miraculous powers [2]. The word grail is believed to be related to Crater, grail is from Old French graal, grael, from Medieval Latin gradalis, ‘cup, platter’, from Vulgar Latin *cratalis, from *cratus, ‘a mixing bowl’, from Latin crater, from Greek krater.

Hewitt connected it with the Somacup of prehistoric India; and Brown with the Mixingbowl in the Euphratean myth of Istar-Kirke, referring to the words of the prophet Jeremiah:

Babylon hath been a golden cup in the Lord’s hand.

But any connection here would seem doubtful, although the Jews knew it as Cos, a Cup. Hewitt also identifies it with “the Akkadians’ Mummu Tiamut, the chaos of the sea, the mother of heaven and earth, and the child of Tiamut, the mother (mut) of living things (tia)”; but all this better suits Corvus

Zavijava Virgo (Beta) 177.3644 +00.3844
Ptolemy makes the following observations; “The stars in the head of Virgo, and that at the top of the southern wing, operate like Mercury and somewhat like Mars: the other bright stars in the same wing, and those about the girdle, resemble Mercury in their influence, and also Venus, moderately . . . those at the points of the feet and at the bottom of the garments are like Mercury, and also Mars, moderately.” By the Kabalists it is associated with the Hebrew letter Gimel and the 3rd Tarot Trump “The Empress.”
Alkaid Ursa Major 177.1562 +54.3879
Eta (η) Ursa Major, Alkaid, is a brilliant white star on the tail of the Great Bear.

In China it was known as Yaon Kwang, a Revolving Light.


Eta (η Alkaid) is 7° from zeta (ζ Mizar), and 26° from alpha (α Dubhe); and with zeta (ζ  Mizar) forms another pair of Pointers—towards Arcturus. It is noted as marking the radiant of one of the richest minor meteor streams, the Ursids of the 10th of November (The Ursids meteor activity begins annually around December 17th and runs for a week plus, until the 25th or 26th. ).


According to Ptolemy, Ursa Major is like Mars. It is said to give a quiet, prudent, suspicious, mistrustful, self-controlled, patient nature, but an uneasy spirit and great anger and revengefulness when roused. By the Kabalists it is associated with the Hebrew letter Zain and the 7th Tarot Trump “The Chariot.”

Alpha Ara Ara 265.1546 -26.5627
Ara represents the heavenly Altar created by the gods of Mount Olympus to celebrate the defeat of the titans where the gods swore their allegiance to the supreme god Zeus (Jupiter). The smoke from the altar was said to pour out to create the Milky Way. According to another account Ara was the altar on which the Centaur (Centaurus) offered his sacrifice of Lupus. Centaurus is traditionally depicted as carrying Lupus, the Wolf, to sacrifice on Ara, the altar. Ara was also known as the altar that Noah built after the great flood when his ark rested on Mt. Ararat.


“The ram (aries) is either named after the word Ares, that is, after ‘Mars’ – whence we call the males in a flock ‘males’ (mas, genitive maris) – or because this animal was the first to be sacrificed on altars (ara, genitive aris) by pagans. So, the ‘ram’ because it was placed on the altar; whence also this (Sedulius, Paschal Poem 1.115):  The ram is offered at the altar.”

Chi Scorpius 266.6897 -15.6464
Although nominally in the zodiac, the sun actually occupies but nine days in passing through the two portions that project upwards into Ophiuchus, so far south of the ecliptic is it; indeed, except for these projections, it could not be claimed as a member of the zodiac.


In early China it was an important part of the figure of the mighty but genial Azure Dragon of the East and of spring, in later days the residence of the heavenly Blue Emperor; but in the time of Confucius it was Ta Who, the Great Fire, a primeval name for its star Antares; and Shing Kung, a Divine Temple, was applied to the stars of the tail. As a member {Page 362} of the early zodiac it was the Hare, for which, in the 16th century, was substituted, from Jesuit teaching, Tien He, the Celestial Scorpion.

Cebalrai Ophiuchus (Beta) 265.5570 +27.9377
Out of the twenty-five days, from the 21st of November to the 16th of December, which the sun spends in passing from Libra to Sagittarius, only nine are spent in the Scorpion, the other sixteen being occupied in passing through Ophiuchus.


The Serpent-holder generally was identified with Asklepios, Asclepios, or Aesculapius, whom King James I described as “a mediciner after made a god,” with whose worship serpents were always associated as symbols of prudence, renovation, wisdom, and the power of discovering healing herbs. Educated by his father Apollo, or by the Centaur Chiron, Aesculapius was the earliest of his profession and the ship’s surgeon of the Argo. When the famous voyage was over he became so skilled in practice that he even restored the dead to life, among these being Hippolytus.


Hippolyte. After his members were drawn in sunder by four horses, Esculapius at Neptune’s request glued them together and revived him.


W – Pisces (Juncture Equator, Ecliptic & Horizon) Ecliptic Lon 356.6376 Ecliptic Lat +01.4565

Key Star Alignments

Object Constellation Ecliptic Lon Ecliptic Lat
Al Pherg Pisces 356.8083 +03.4176
By reason of precession this constellation is now the first of the zodiac, but entirely within its boundaries lies the sign Aries; the vernal equinox being located in a comparatively starless region south of omega in the tail of the southwestern Fish, and about 2° west of “a line from alpha Andromedae through gamma Pegasi continued as far again.” This equinoctial point is known as the First of Aries, and the Greenwich of the Sky; and from their containing it, the Fishes are called the Leaders of the Celestial Host.


Eta (η) Pisces, Al Pherg, is a double star in the cord near the tail of the Northern Fish.

Legend: Venus and her son Cupid while sitting on the bank of the Euphrates suddenly saw Typhon, the enemy of the Gods, approaching them. They leapt into the river and were saved from drowning by two fishes, who were afterwards placed in the heavens by Venus in gratitude for their help. [Robson*, p.57.]

Influences: Ptolemy makes the following observations: “Those stars in Pisces which are in the head of the southern fish have the same influence as Mercury, and, in some degree, as Saturn: those in the body are like Jupiter and Mercury: those in the tail and in the southern line are like Saturn, and, moderately, like Mercury. In the northern fish, those on its body and backbone resemble Jupiter, and also Venus in some degree: those in the northern line are like Saturn and Jupiter.” By the Kabalists Pisces is associated with the Hebrew letter Pé and the 17th Tarot Trump “The Stars.” [Robson*, p.57.]


Matar Pegasus (Eta) 355.9321 +35.1082
Eta (η) Pegasus, Matar, is a star in the right knee of the Winged Horse.

On the left forearm, is the Matar of Whitall’s Planisphere, from Al Sad al Matar, the Fortunate Rain; as such, however, omicron (ο) was included with it.

[Star Names, Their Lore and Meaning, Richard Hinckley Allen, 1889].

Legend: Pegasus was born from the blood of Medusa (see Algol) after Perseus had cut off her head, and was afterwards tamed and ridden by Bellerophon. Being weary of earthly affairs Bellerophon attempted to fly to heaven but fell off, and Pegasus continued his course, entered heaven and took his place among the stars. [Robson*, p.56.]

The constellation portends events concerning ships and the ocean and also changes in the weather. In medieval times it was said to indicate vain individuals with a great deal of ambition, but with very poor judgment. [Fixed Stars and Judicial Astrology, George Noonan, 1990, p.22.]

Pegasus the winged Horse will appear and gallop aloft in the heavens. It will bring forth people endowed with swiftness of movement and limbs alert to perform every task. One man will cause his horse to wheel round in caracoles, and proudly mounted on its back he will wage war from on high; horseman and soldier in one. Another will possess the ability to rob the racecourse of its true length such is his speed that he will seem to dissemble the movement of his feet and make the ground vanish before him. Who more swiftly could fly back from the ends of the earth as messenger or with light foot to the earth’s ends make his way?  He will also heal a horse’s wounds with the sap of common plants, and will know the herbs which bring aid to an animal’s limbs and those which grow for the use of man.” [Manilius, Astronomica, 1st century AD, book 5, p.350-353.]

Chi Eridanus Eridanus 356.4708 -57.4708
There is much in the Euphratean records alluding to a stellar stream that may be our Eridanus, — possibly the Milky Way, another sky river; yet it is to the former that the passage translated by Fox Talbot possibly refers:

Like the stars of heaven he shall shine; like the River of Night he shall flow;

and its title has been derived from the Akkadian Aria-dan, the Strong River (-dan means river). George Smith thinks that the heavenly Eridanus may have been the Euphratean Erib-me-gali.

Its hither termination at the star Rigel gave it the title River of Orion, used by Hipparchos, Proclus, and others; and Landseer wrote: the stars now constellated as Erydanus were originally known in different countries by the names of Nile, Nereus, and Ocean, or Neptune.

Alnitak Orion Zeta 084.9015 -25.2911
Zeta (ζ) Orion, Alnitak, is a triple star, 2.5, 6.5, and 9, topaz yellow, light purple, and gray, on the east end on the Great Hunter’s waist.

Alnitak, or Alnitah, for this, the lowest and the eastern-most star in the Belt, is from Al Nitak, the Girdle.

This star along with Alnilam and Mintaka form the Belt of Orion. The three lotus of the Tree of Life.

Epsilon (ε Alnilam), zeta (ζ Alnitak), and delta (δ Mintaka), form the Belt of Orion.

One of the most obvious features people see in the sky is the three stars that form the “belt” across the middle of Orion; three stars in a row that appear to us of almost equal size and of equal distance from each other; Mintaka, the westernmost star in the belt, comes from the Arabic word for “belt”, Alnilam, the center star in the belt, means “a belt of pearls” and Alnitak, the eastern-most star, means the girdle.

The early Hindus called them Isus Trikanda, the Three-jointed Arrow; but the later transferred to it the nakshatra (Hindu Moon Mansion) title, Mrigashiras.

The native Australians knew the stars as Young Men dancing a corroboree, the Pleiades being the Maidens playing for them; and the Poignave Indians of the Orinoco, according to Von Humboldt, as Fuebot, a word that he said resembled the Phoenician.

Kabalists associate it with the Hebrew letter Aleph and the 1st Tarot Trump “The Juggler.”

Al Hecka Taurus 085.0049 -02.1936
The two Horns of the Bull, Al Hecka is on the tip of south horn, iota is on the south horn El Nath on the north tip.


Zeta (ζ) Taurus, Al Hecka, “The Bull’s southern Horn”, this star marks the tip of the southern horn of the Bull.


Al Hecka was the determinant star of the 7th ecliptic constellation of Babylonia, Shur-narkabti-sha-shutu, the Star in the Bull towards the South, or the Southern Star towards the Chariot (Auriga).

Reeves gave it, with others near by, as the Chinese Tien Kwan, the Heavenly Gate.

Legend: Jupiter, assuming the form of a bull, mingled with the herd when Europa, with whom he was infatuated, and her maidens disported themselves on the sea-shore. Encouraged by the tameness of the bull Europa mounted it, whereupon the God rushed into the sea and bore her away to Crete. According to other accounts Taurus represents Io whom Jupiter turned into a cow in order to deceive his wife Juno. [Robson*, p.62-63.]

Influences: Ptolemy makes the following observations: “Those stars in Taurus which are in the abscission of the sign resemble in their temperament the influence of Venus, and in some degree that of Saturn . . . the stars in the head (except Aldebaran) resemble Saturn, and, partly, Mercury; and those at the top of the horns are like Mars.” By the Kabalists Taurus is associated with the Hebrew letter Aleph and the 1st Tarot Trump “The Juggler.”

Gamma Lepus Lepus 085.0663 -45.8162
The German Hase, the Portuguese lebre, the Italian Lepre, and the French Lievre, is located just below Orion and westward from his Hound (Canis Major).

It was Lagos among the Greeks —Lagoos in the Epic dialect, — Aratos characterizing its few and faint stars by the adjective glaukos. With the Greeks of Sicily, the country noted in early days for the great devastations by hares, the constellation was leporis (hare), whence came the fanciful story {Page 265} that our Hare was placed in the heavens to be close to its hunter, Orion. Riccioli enlarged upon this in his Almagestum Novum: “Quia Orion in gratiam Dianae, quae leporine sanguine gaudebat, plurimum venatu leporis gauderet.”

The Arabians adopted the classical title in their Al Arnab, which degenerated into Alarnebet, Elarneb, and Harneb; and the Hebrews are said to have known it as Arnebeth; but the early Arabs designated the principal stars —  alpha, beta, gamma, and delta —  as Al Kursiyy al Jabbar and Al ‘Arsh al Jauzah, the Chair of the Giant (Orion) and the Throne of the Jauzah (Orion). Kazwini, repeating this, added, in Ideler’s rendering, Gott weiss wie sonst noch, which Smyth assumed to be Ideler’s comment thereon; but it was merely his translation of Kazwini’s Arabic formula, God is the Omniscient, used when a writer did not wish to come to a decision. Smyth further wrote of it:

‘Abdr rahman Sufi designates the throne — one of the many which the Arabs had in their heavens, although a squatting rather than a sitting people — almuakhkherah, the succeeding, as following that formed by lambda, beta, psi Eridani and tau Orionis.

Al Sufi also cited the occasional Al Nihal, the Thirst-slaking Camels, for the four bright stars, in reference to the near-by celestial river (Eridanus).

Those biblically inclined saw here the Magdalen in tears; or Judas Iscariot; and, in the earlier record, the patriarch Jacob; Isaac with the wood for the sacrifice; the Hebrew sinner gathering sticks on the Sabbath; or Cain driven from the face of the earth to the face of the moon. This appeared even with Dante, Chaucer, and Shakespeare, for the first had in the Paradise:

But tell me what the dusky spots may be

Upon this body, which below on earth

Make people tell that fabulous tale of Cain;

{Page 268} and in the Inferno:

Touches the ocean wave Cain and the thorns.

In A Midsummer Night’s Dream Quince says:

Or else one must come in with a bush of thorns and a lanthorn and say, he comes to disfigure, or to present the person of moonshine;

and Chaucer described the figure as

Bearing a bush of thorns on his back

Which for his theft might clime so near the heaven;

although Milton, from a higher plane of thought, wrote that the sinful wandered

Not in the neighboring moon as some have dreamed.

The Salish Indians of our northwest coast tell of a toad which, pursued by a wolf, jumped to the moon to escape his unwelcome attentions.

N – Camelopardalis (The Camel)

RA 12h 11m 41.27s DEC +81 37 20.2, Ecliptic Lon 110.6212 Ecliptic Lat +65.5967, Multiple star HD105943

The Egyptians used a hieroglyph in the shape of a giraffe to indicate ‘to prophecy’, ‘to foretell’.

Isidore sees the word Britain as a cognate of Latin brutus, heavy, which is from the root *gwere1. ‘Briton’ is derived from Brutus (according to Geoffrey of Monmouth) “Initially expanding a Welsh legend that traces Briton origins to the wanderings of Brutus and his band of Trojans” [3]. A giraffe can kill a lion with a brutal kick.

rom Star Names: Their Lore and Meaning, 1889, Richard H. Allen

Camelopardalis or Camelopardus, the Giraffe, the French Girafe and Italian Giraffa, is long, faint, and straggling like its namesake. It stretches from the pole-star (Polaris in Ursa Minor) to Perseus, Auriga, and the Lynx, the hind quarters within the Milky Way.

It was formed by Bartschius, who published it, in outline only, in 1614, and wrote that it represented to him the Camel that brought Rebecca to Isaac [the Torah says Rebecca sees Isaac and falls off her camel]. Was it from this that Proctor attempted to change its title to Camelus ? — an alteration that seems to have been adopted only by Mr. J. Ellard Gore in his translation, in 1894, of Flammarion’s Astronomic Populaire. Weigel used it with Auriga to form his heraldic figure, the French Lilies.

The Chinese located seven asterisms within its boundaries: Hwa Kae, the State Umbrella, extending beyond Camelopardalis; Luh Kea, a term in {Page107} anatomy; Shang Ching, the Higher Minister; Shang Wei, the Higher Guard; Shaou Wei, the Minor Guard; Sze Foo, the Four Official Supporters of the Throne; and Yin Tih, Unostentatious Virtue.

Argelander enumerates 84 naked-eye stars, and Heis 138; these culminating in the middle of January.

[Star Names: Their Lore and Meaning, Richard H. Allen, 1889.]

S – Hydrus (The Male Water Snake)

Hydrus was first published by Bayer, must not be confounded with the ancient Hydra. It lies between Horologium and Tucana; the head adjoining the polar Octans, the tail almost reaching the magnificent star Achernar of Eridanus.

The French know the figure as 1’Hydre Male; and the Germans as der Kleine Wasserschlange.

Out of this, with Tucana and the Lesser Cloud, Julius Schiller made his biblical constellation Raphael.

The Chinese formed from the stars of Hydrus, with others surrounding it, four of their later asterisms: Shay Show, the Serpent’s Head, marked by epsilon and zeta; Shay Fuh, the Serpent’s Belly, towards Tucana; Shay We, the Serpent’s Tail, entirely within the boundaries of Hydrus; and Foo Pih, of unknown signification, marked by gamma, a red 3.2-magnitude, specially mentioned by Corsali in his account of the Magellanic Clouds.

In it Gould catalogues 64 stars from 2.7 to 7th magnitudes.

The 2.7-magnitude lucida theta, in the tail, is of a remarkably clear yellow hue, and the nearest conspicuous star to the south pole, although 12° distant.

[Star Names: Their Lore and Meaning, Richard H. Allen, 1889.]

E – Serpens

The starry Serpent

Southward winding from the Northern Wain (Ursa Major),

Shoots to remoter spheres its glittering train.


Serpens, the Serpent, is le Serpent in France, il Serpente in Italy, and die Schlange in Germany, probably is very ancient, and always has been shown as grasped by the hands of Ophiuchus at its pair of stars delta, epsilon, and at nu, and tau – Ophiuchi. The head is marked by the noticeable group iota, kappa, gamma, phi, nu, rho, and the eight little stars all lettered tau, and consecutively numbered, 10° south from the Crown and 20° due east from Arcturus; the figure line thence winding southwards 15° to Libra, and turning to the southeast and northeast along the western edge of the Milky Way, terminating at its star theta, 8° south of the tail of the Eagle (Aquila) and west of that constellation’s delta.

Of the four stellar Snakes this preeminently is the Serpent, its stars originally being combined with those of Ophiuchus, although Manilius wrote

Serpentem Graiis Ophiuchus nomine dictus dividit;

but it now is catalogued separately, and occasionally divided into Caput and Cauda on either side of the Serpent-holder.

The Greeks knew it as Ophis Ophioukhou, or simply as Ophis, and familiarly as Erpeton and Egkhelus (eel), respectively the Serpent and the Eel; the Latins, occasionally as Anguilla, Anguis, and Coluber; but universally as Serpens, often qualified as the Serpent of Aesculapius, Caesius, Glaucus, Laocoon, and of Ophiuchus; and as Serpens Herculeus, Lernaeus, and Sagarinus.

The 1515 Almagest and the Alfonsine Tables of 1521 had Serpens Alangue, thus combining their corrupted Latin with their equally corrupted Arabic, as often is the case with those works. It also was Draco Lesbius and Tiberinus, and, perhaps, Ovid’s and Vergil’s Lucidus Anguis.

In the astronomy of Arabia it was Al Hayyah, the Snake, — Chilmead’s Alhafa; but before that country was influenced by Greece there was a very different constellation here, Al Raudah, the Pasture; the stars beta and gamma,{Page 375} with gamma and beta Herculis, forming the Nasak Shamiyy, the Northern Boundary; while delta, alpha, and epsilon Serpentis, with delta, epsilon, zeta, and eta Ophiuchi, were the Nasak Yamaniyy, the Southern Boundary. The enclosed sheep were shown by the stars now in the Club of Hercules, guarded on the west by the Shepherd and his Dog, the stars alpha in Ophiuchus and Hercules.

To the Hebrews, as to most nations, this was a Serpent from the earliest times, and, Renan said, may have been the one referred to in the Book of Job, xxvi, 13; but Delitzsch, who renders the original words as the “Fugitive Dragon,” and others with him, consider our Draco to be the constellation intended, as probably more ancient and widely known from its ever visible circumpolar position.

The biblical school made it the serpent seducer of Eve, while in our day imaginative observers find another heavenly Cross in the stars of the head, one that belongs to Saint Andrew or Saint Patrick.

Serpens shared with Ophiuchus the Euphratean title of Nutsirda, the Image of the Serpent; and is supposed to have been one of the representatives of divinity to the Ophites, the Hivites of Old Testament times.

The comparatively void space between nu and epsilon was the Chinese Tien Shi Yuen, the Enclosure of the Heavenly Market.

[Star Names: Their Lore and Meaning, Richard H. Allen, 1889.]

W – Monoceros HD45433

Monoceros, the Unicorn, is das Einhorn in Germany, la Licorne in France, and il Unicorno or Liocorno in Italy, lies in the large but comparatively vacant field between the two Dogs (Canis Minor and Canis Major), Orion, and the Hydra, the celestial equator passing through it {p.290} lengthwise from the Belt of Orion to the tail of the animal, just below the head of Hydra. Proctor assigned to it the alternative title Cervus.

Its 4.6-magnitude S, or Fl. 15, marks the head of the figure, facing towards the west.

This is a modern constellation, generally supposed to have been first charted by Bartschius as Unicornu; but Olbers and Ideler say that it was of much earlier formation, the latter quoting allusions to it, in the work of 1564, as “the other Horse south of the Twins (Gemini) and the Crab (Cancer)”; and Scaliger found it on a Persian sphere.

Flammarion’s identification of it with the still earlier Neper has already been mentioned under Microscopium.

Monoceros seems to have no star individually named, but the Chinese asterisms Sze Fuh, the Four Great Canals; Kwan Kew; and Wae Choo, the Outer Kitchen, all lay within its boundaries.

It contains 66 naked-eye stars according to Argelander, — Heis says 112, — and is interesting chiefly from its many telescopic clusters, and as being located in the Milky Way.

It comes to the meridian in February, due south from Procyon.

alpha, the lucida, is Fl. 30, of 3.6 magnitude.

Ptolemy extended the constellation somewhat farther to the east than we have it, the feet being carried into the modern Libra, and the stars that Hipparchos placed in the shoulder shifted to the side, to correct, as he said, the comparative distances of the stars and members of the body. Upon our maps it is about 52° in length, terminating on the east at lambda and mu, and so is the longest of the zodiac figures. It is bounded on the north by Leo, Coma Berenices, and Bootes; on the east by Serpens and Libra; on the {Page 466} south by Hydra, Corvus and Crater; and on the west by Leo, Crater, and Corvus.

While the beautiful Spica is its most noteworthy object to the casual observer, yet the telescope shows here the densest nebular region in the heavens, in the space marked by its beta (Zavijava), eta (Zaniah), gamma (Porrima), delta (Auva), and Denebola of Leo; while other nebulae are scattered all over this region of the sky. Sir William Herschel found here no less than 323, which later search has increased to over 500, — very many more nebulae than naked-eye stars in the constellation. Argelander gives 101 of the latter, and Heis 181.

It is for these four stars in Virgo, forming with epsilon (Vindemiatrix) two sides of a right-angled triangle open towards Denebola, gamma (Porrima) at its vertex, that Professor Young uses his mnemonic word Begde to recall their order. They extend along the wings through the girdle, and were the Kennel Corner of the Barking Dogs of the Arabs, often considered as the Dogs themselves.

Von Zach, of Gotha, rediscovered here on the last day of the first year of this century the minor planet Ceres, whose position had been lost some time after its discovery by Piazzi on the previous New Year’s Day; Olbers repeating this, and independently, the next evening, the first anniversary of the original discovery. Here, too, Olbers found, on the 28th of March, 1802, another minor planet, Pallas, the second one discovered, and appropriately named, for the thirty-first of the Orphic Hymns described this goddess as “inhabiting the stars.”

The sun passes through the constellation from the 14th of September to the 29th of October; and during this time

the Virgin trails No more her glittering garments through the blue.


N – Pisces

Pisces, the Fishes, are the German Fische, the Italian Pesci, the French Poissons, the Anglo-Norman Peisun, and the Anglo-Saxon Fixas. The Alfonsine Tables of {Page 337} 1521 had Pesces, and the Almagest of 1515 Echiguen, Bayer’s Ichiguen, a word that has defied commentators unless Caesius has explained it as being a corruption of Greek Ichthues.

And here fantastic fishes duskly float,

Using the calm for waters, while their fires

Throb out quick rhythms along the shallow air.

—  Mrs. Browning’s A Drama of Exile.

  • My MoonPurva Ashadha

     ‘The Invincible Star’

    (13º20′-26º39′ Sagittarius)

    Purva Ashadha is the potential energy of the devotional inspiration received from the root Truth found in the previous constellation Mula.  It is symbolic of the river’s water rushing to merge with the ocean.  It is at the heart of Sagittarius where there is a great desire which energizes and invigorates our spirit to act upon our truth.  Purva Ashadha forms a pair with the next constellation (Uttara Ashadha) which are the stars of the bow and arrow of Sagittarius.  Purva Ashadha’s stars are the “pulled back” bow taking aim at a target showing the quality of strategy and discernment that is bestowed upon these individuals.   The winnowing basket (which separates the wheat from the chaff) is another symbol used for this constellation, again showing a good discriminating intellect but also the tendency to be judgmental, an elitist and a separatist.

The Cardinals

N – Cassiopeia the Ethiopian Queen aligned with Gamma Cassiopeia.
Gamma (γ) Cassiopeia, Cih, is a on the Ethiopian Queen’s chair.

It was the Chinese Tsih, a Whip.

This was the first star discovered to contain bright lines in its spectrum, in 1886.

S – Crux aligned with Mimosa Beta Crux
The cross is not only a Christian symbol, it was also a Mexican symbol. It was one of the emblems of Quetzalcoatl, as lord of the four cardinal points, and the four winds that blow therefrom. Quailties – Inventive mind, intuition and wisdom, a grasp for the inner nature of one’s fellow man. The gift of successful investigation of the hidden side of things. A deeply religious nature connected with mystical and theosophical interests.

E – Monoceros aligned with Orion Delta

W – Aquila the water eagle heart Agar

Z – Sculptor NGC 613

N – Coma Berenices M64 Black Eye Galaxy also known as Sleeping Beauty, guess what she’s awake <3

N – Hercules aligned with Eta Hercules

S – Caelum the graving tool or sculptors chisel, also known as ‘the Heavens’ or celestial

E – Sextans Uranae a navigational tool, relative to Sex and value 6

W – Aquarius aligned with Eta Aquarius. Aquarius is ruled by the planet Uranus and Uranus brings change

Zenith – Auriga the charioteer, Erichthonius was according to some legends autochthonous, ‘born of the earth’, Erichthonios, referred to as the ‘beneficent autochthon‘ [8]. Automedon was the charioteer of Achilles. The automobile is the modern counterpart of the chariot, ‘auto-mobile’, ‘self-propelling’, from Greek autos, ‘self’. Socrates (Phaedrus 246a – 254e), uses the Chariot allegory to explain his view of the human soul. One horse being well-behaved and the other troublesome, and some souls have difficulty controlling the black horse, even with the help of the white horse [9]. “Aristotle spoke of autarkia – having your origin in yourself. Capacity for self-movement implied divinity and immortality. The divine or immortal element in us is ‘auto-kinetic’ or, as we say today, ‘automobile'” [10] From Greek autos, ‘self, same, spontaneous; directed from within’, we get the words auto-, autism, automatic, autopsy (‘a seeing for oneself’), authentic.


Nadir – Crater, the Cup, is often considered a part of the threefold constellation; Hydra, Corvus and Crater. It relates to the myth [Ovid’s Fasti, 2.243-66] that Apollo sent a Raven (Corvus) to fetch water in the god’s cup (Crater). The raven got back late because he waited at a fig tree for figs to ripen before returning. He brought back a Water-snake (Hydra), along with the water-filled cup (Crater), and told Apollo that the Hydra had caused the delay. Apollo was not deceived by the lie and placed the Raven (Corvus), the cup (Crater), and the Water-snake (Hydra) among the stars, where the Water-snake guards the water from the thirsty Raven.
