Asterion Star Astrology

Canes Venatici Constellation [Stellarium]

Fixed star Asterion, Beta Canum Venaticorum, lies in the Southern Hound of the Hunting Dogs, Canes Venatici constellation. Being a recently added constellation, the naming of the stars has become very confusing, with Asterion referring to the hound which does not contain the star Asterion.

The southern hound is called Chara and containes α Cor Caroli and β Asterion. Chara is Greek for Joy, or Dear, and has also been called “dear to the heart of her master”. The northern hound is called Asterion and contains M51 Copula. Asterion means Starry.

In 2006, astronomer Margaret Turnbull labeled Beta CVn as the top stellar system candidate to search for extraterrestrial life forms. [1]

Asterion Star Astrology

Fixed star Asterion has the same Saturn-Venus qualities as Cor Caroli and Copula, which can signify great respect given to the individual for services well given. [2]

Constellation Canes Venatici gives a love of hunting and a penetrating mind, making those born under it faithful, keen, clever and fond of speculation. [3]

  1. Interesting. This is conjunct the sun, moon and jupiter in my natal chart, and i’d like to believe all the good qualities for sure, but is the ‘love of hunting’ metaphoric? I don’t eat other animals and have a problem with those who hunt as a ‘hobby,’ but in other aspects of life, i do go after what i want. And again hounds are protective of what they love.
    I hope this was helpful(ish) feedback.

    • His writing sounds like it is literal but i would expect that for more evolved souls it would be metaphoric. Depends of course, what if you were selected for an episode of Survivor? Could you survive in the wild by catching your own food?

  2. Interesting! This one conjuncts my natal Jupiter and is close enough to my Juno in Virgo the sign of service 😉
