Fixed Stars: Modern Interpretations of Ancient Wisdom

On FIXED STARS: Don’t want to look at the fixed stars because there’s so much doom and gloom? Ancient interpretations are not always relevant for today. Modern interpretations are necessary.

Example: Many of the fixed stars say “blindness” will occur. Do we interpret that as literal or metaphorical? If literal, we have better technology today, as well as scientific knowledge, health care, glasses, etc. so if an ‘eye issue’ crops up, modern techniques can help avoid out and out ‘blindness’. Remember when things are written. Even though some things are timeless, time changes things.

I’ve got Sag on the 11th, and 12th house and Jupiter in the 9th with Neptune in the 10th (hard to receive credit where and when it’s due until much later in life — this also shows up in a couple of my fixed stars such as Thuban and Zosma), Mars in the 7th squaring my MC, inconjunct AC, and square Saturn!

Fixed star Algol, Taurus: The Sexual, Emotional, & Psychological Drives of Heterosexual Men with Algol

 

 

Fixed Star Algol

For those that follow the Astrogasm blog but not my VirgoVault blog, I thought I would point out an important article on Algol and the Medusa Myth that I recently wrote up.

My astrology, which may be noteworthy to this article, include: Virgo the Virgin stellium in the 8th house of Scorpio (sex, death, psychology, etc). Moon, Mercury, Venus, Pluto, Vesta, and South Node. Mercury and Pluto, not conjunct, reside in the 8th. Uranus Libra straddles the 8th and 9th with Medusa conjuncting it. Minerva and Athene are in my 7th house conjunct my Sun which is conjunct my Mars. Neptune is in my 10th.Pallas is in my 2nd house in Pisces and conjunct my North Node. I have Algol, as a degree, in my 4th house. It is not conjunct anything though the closest conjunction would be with Saturn, if it were in orb.

The main players in this story are:

  • Medusa, Virgin Priestess of Athena (Vestal Virgin) — assigned Virgo, then transformed into Scorpio
  • Neptune (aka Poseidon), Rapist or Seducer — assigned Pisces
  • Minera (aka Athena),Virgin Goddess — assigned Scorpio
  • Mother, the missing water sign — assigned Cancer

The Heterosexual Man and the Fixed Star, Algol

Divorce & Break-up Aspects in Astrology

I took at look at search terms and “divorce aspect” came up. I have only written about Venus Square Uranus but there are other divorce aspects. The aspects below would indicate a short relationship, for better or worse. Don’t ignore the truth, it is right in front of you.

Natal aspects, by transit, or solar return.

Venus Square Uranus — Overcoming electric or love that shocks.  Easy come, easy go. This especially applies for couples who haven’t been together or married a long time.

Venus Opposition Saturn — Long time love is no longer wanted. This especially applies for couples who have been together or married a long time.

Venus Square or Opposition Chiron – The love you have together basically leads to pain — love hurts.  After awhile, the couple may shelve the relationship.

Pluto in or on the angles (1,4,7,10)  — Pluto destroys what no longer deserves to live. You can end the connection and start over again or completely get rid of it – the choice is yours.

Saturn in or on the angles (1,4,7,10) — Staying together is hard.  You have to go through many tests, trials, and tribulations to stay together. If you’re hard working, you’ll make it.

Uranus Opposition Uranus — Did you get too comfortable in your marriage? Is it time for a change? Uranus is going to sweep you away from the dull-drums and give you a roller coaster of a good time.  Will that be with the one you committed too or someone else? Again, it’s your choice.

Can you think of any others?!

There are asteroids, Arabic parts, and fixed stars that could indicate it as well.

Psychopath Astrology by Astrologer, Marina Darkstar (My Response)

In response to Marina’s most awesome article about Psychopath indicators showing up in Astrology.


Hi Marina,

Fabulous article — yet again!

Mars direct is a great time to write about or contemplate this topic. It’s been bubbling over in my mind ‘again’ so I’m so happy to see you’ve written about it as it’s very interesting to read!

I first wanted to tackle the topic last summer when the Cardinal T-square (Mercury, Uranus, Pluto) was activated but it’s such a HUGE subject. I wonder if you felt like you were opening up a can of worms when you delved into it.

I have a number of charts I’ve been working on for an article about the “Astrology of Bullying” and bullies are often sociopathic.

Anyway, with the research I’ve done so far — I can support your assertion that “Black Moon Lilith (also Pluto) in aspect to the AC” is a strong indicator especially if it’s on the DC and 1° or less.

And it seems that the opposition with Moon and Pluto (and BML) comes up the most as it relates to potential psychopathy.

Like you mentioned, not every native who has these signatures is a psychopath. And in fact, they may be a fighter of psychopaths, treat, or attract them so I’m glad you ended the article with that. It’s a sensitive topic, for sure.

Warm regards,
Abella

I’d also like to mention that my research indicates that Pluto in aspect to Mars and/or Mercury can also indicate sociopathic traits.  Saturn and Uranus can also be nasty beasts, attacking human life. Just remember, there’s good, neutral, and bad in EVERYTHING. No black and white.  Just because you or someone you know has this doesn’t mean they are disordered.  They may have an edge but that doesn’t mean they have a full-on personality disorder that affects their relationships, and life.

Describing the Effects of Algol by Astrologer Michael Wolfstar

I was looking for some thoughts about “Juno Conjunct Algol” (didn’t find any) and came across this well-written article by astrologer Michael Wolfstar. He’s been able to express Algol in a way that many other astrologers have not.

Here’s an excerpt:

In traditional astrology, Algol is associated with violence, death, alcoholism, and losing one’s head, both physically and metaphorically, as in going insane. In modern times, astrologers see Algol as the carrier for the collective rage of suppressed female power. Maria Shriver announced her separation from the Governator last week, and this event helps illustrate how Algol works in practice. – Michael Wolfstar

By the way,  I believe “Algol Conjunct Juno” relates to having a partnership ended through abuse (Juno = marriage, partnership, tough love), an abusive marriage, or severe disrespect of dominant female energy in a partnership.

Michael Wolfstar can also be found at Neptune Cafe serving up some delicious mundane astrology (world news, events, celebrity readings) and teaching cosmic tidbits (such as asteroids) here and there.  I think professional and advanced astrologers can appreciate his work.

This has long since bothered me: Unknown …

This has long since bothered me: Unknown people will frequently engage me, learn from me, and then buy from someone else. I’m starting to ask why but the sting is still there. With Formalhaut Conjunct North Node in the 2nd, my destiny (my present) is to act with integrity when making my own money. However, my self-esteem gets a brutal kicking when I’m looked over. I feel used and stuck.
