Achernar Star Astrology

Fixed star Achernar is of the same influence as Jupiter. It is symbolized as the Cherub and Sword and gives success in public office, beneficence, and religion. [1]

Achernar, on the End of the Eridanus River, possesses a Jupiter nature with a dash of Mars-Uranus character. Well placed, it promises happiness and success by giving good morals, faithful adherence to one’s religious beliefs, or a philosophical inclination. According to tradition, Achernar is credited with bestowing high offices in the church, especially if conjunction Jupiter. [3]

Achernar star rules the center of the left foot in the human body. [4]

Constellation Eridanus, with the exception of Achernar, is like Saturn. It gives a love of knowledge and science, much travel and many changes, a position of authority, but danger of accidents especially at sea and of drowning. [1]

This constellation portends rain. Modern astrologers claim that the constellation gives a love of knowledge and science, but there is no support for this contention in classical astrology. Eridanus does, however, indicate events concerned with rivers and streams. Ptolemy states that the star at the end of the river has a nature like that of Jupiter, and the other stars in the constellation have an influence akin to that of Saturn. [2]

Mercury conjunct Achernar (0°30′): These individuals accomplish many things. This creates an expansion of the psychic through the subconscious. They are always in communication with the spiritual realm. When asking a question of their spirit guides, the answer comes to them immediately. There is no waiting even though it may be a question from their own ego subconscious, or a question asked by another. The answers are given immediately. They can be psychics for the public or it can be used for their own benefit. There can be difficulty with earthbound and mundane matters so that they need someone who can take care of these functions for them. They generally seek out a partner who wants to be needed and who can take care of those earthly necessities for them. It is difficult for them to take care of their own physical needs and they require a partner who is more on the mundane level. [4] Rupert Murdoch 1°37′, Edgar Cayce 1°49′, Abraham Lincoln 2°17′

Venus conjunct Achernar: Edgar Cayce 2°10′

Mars conjunct Achernar (0°15′): This is a stressful energy to the body, as it can affect the adrenal glands and diaphragm. These individuals will notice that there is a problem with the left foot which is caused by the tissue surrounding the bone structure of the foot. The tissue tends to become inflamed, thus separating slightly from the bone structure. In turn, there is an excessive heating of the adrenal glands which produces an excess supply of adrenalin. The individual becomes very argumentative and impatient with others. There is no physical contact here generally, but there would be continuous bickering and arguments about everything. The individual may also have an uncomfortable feeling in the left foot which is always slightly irritated. The diaphragm becomes irritated and swells slightly thus losing its elasticity. The individual feels a burning sensation that is similar to heartburn and the condition is irreversible. If these persons can learn to love others and can force themselves to get along with people, the symptoms can be relieved to a large extent, but in any event, there is nothing medical or dietary that can restore this area.

Uranus conjunct Achernar: Marie Antoinette 1°20′

Neptune conjunct Achernar (0°15′): This configuration causes a disturbance in the immune system affecting all the glands in the body. The native is susceptible to disorders of the entire endocrine system so that diseases can develop almost anywhere in the body. The entire body is weak and they have little energy. These individuals should never take any drugs or medication of any kind as they can pick up almost any disease, especially the long-term diseases such as cancer. They are subject to infections of the blood and are susceptible to diseases such as leukemia. The diseases all begin in the central part of the body, and spread throughout the glandular system. The condition can be helped to a great extent through the consumption of parsley every day at every meal including parsley tea. Parsley vitalizes and strengthens the immune system. Pomegranates are especially favorable for these individuals as well as oranges, especially the portion inside the skin, every other day. It should be noted that if cancer is a problem with an individual with this degree, look to the adrenal glands for the inception of the disease. The disease is then spread to other areas. The diaphragm can also initiate the disease as well, but more than likely it will be the adrenal glands. [4] Vincent van Gogh 0°59′
