Ascella Star Astrology

Fixed star Ascella is of the nature of Jupiter and Mercury: religious mind, thoughtful, philosophical, writer on religious or similar subjects. It gives good fortune and happiness. [1]

Ascella rules below the right knee in the human body. [2]

Constellation Sagittarius was the House of Jupiter, that planet having appeared here at the Creation, although this honor was shared by Aquarius and Leo. Nor did Jupiter monopolize its possession, for it also was the domicile of Diana. Thus the constellation was known as Dianae Sidus. It inclined to fruitfulness, a character assigned to it as far back as the Babylonian inscriptions; and was a fortunate sign. Yellow was the color attributed to it, or the peculiar green sanguine. [5]

It is a fortunate and fruitful constellation indicating events pertaining to kings or a large portion of mankind. Ptolemy states: “The stars at the point of the arrow have an effect like that of Mars and the Moon; those on the bow and at the grip of the hand like that of Jupiter and Mars; the cluster in the forehead like that of the Sun and Mars; those in the cloak and in the back resemble Jupiter, and to a lesser degree like Mercury; the stars in the feet have a nature akin to that of Jupiter and Saturn; and the quadrangle upon the tail like Venus, and to a lesser degree like Saturn.” [2]

Ascella Star Conjunctions

Sun conjunct Ascella: Good fortune and lasting happiness. [1]

This is similar to the Sun in Nunki except that it is even more fortunate, with more glory to the individual. The natives are high achievers who are publicly acclaimed. They can take anything and place it in a position that would obtain the best results. This can be in commercial ventures, or strategic military equipment and maneuvers, such as placing artillery in the best position for accuracy and effectiveness. In the chart of a female, it would bring great frustration for they have the same ability as a male but are not given the opportunity to achieve the same rank. They could set up tactical maneuvers on a pattern to show the best positions for offensive or defensive weapons, but as females, would not attain the recognition of achievement that males would receive with this planetary position. [2]

Moon conjunct Ascella: New and influential friends, valuable gifts, love of respectable women. [1]

Mars conjunct Ascella: This causes a disturbance in the knee, but this is not a serious problem. the difficulty would be only a dull ache in the right knee which would simply need to be rubbed to relieve the problem. [2]

  1. Hey Jamie, I love your site! Do fixed Stars have any influence when conjunct to House cusps? Thank you!

    • Good question Nelson. Only for the cardinal points: AC, IC, DC, MC. I also use Part of Fortune and possibly the Vertex point. Most of the major fixed stars have interpretations for rising and culminating, some have then for setting too.

  2. Sorry for leaving so many questions..but this one is really the one that interests me a lot!
    It’s conjunct my ascendant. I wonder if it’;s Good or bad?

      • Thank you very much for all of your help! 🙂 I am not very optimistic about it.
        My NN is conjunct Spiculum, Alcyone straight on sun, Zaurak on Venus, etc. But I love very much your input about Acrux and Ascella, makes me a bit hopefull that it can;t be all black.
        I especially like Acrux 😀
        Great site! Have a good day!

  3. I have my midheaven at 13 degrees 44′ orb Capricorn. So I guess fixed star Ascella is conjunct my midheaven. Is that a good thing?

    • Yes, definitely conjunct. When there is no specific interpretation for your planet or point then go with the general description. A positive influence. Think about the planetary nature of the star, in this case Jupiter Mercury. So you career or calling in life (Midheaven) should be intellectual, philosophical. Anything from a secretary to Uni professor.

  4. Oh and I also have Sirius conjunct my 4th house ic in cancer. Don’t know what these mean.

    • Again, so specific interpretation but IC is your breeding, ancestry, genetics, previous incarnations. Sirius here would be honorable, well bred, loyal and perhaps some fame.

  5. Hello Jamie:), I have my North Node conjunct this star(1st house) and also an asteroid named Kaali. What does this mean?
