Bos Star Astrology

Fixed star Bos is of the nature of Saturn and Venus. [1]

Oculus and Bos, π and ρ Capricorni respectively, are only 28′ apart. The first name is Latin for Eye, its position in the figure, while Bos means Ox. It is a little curious that this name turns up in Latin, for it is only known otherwise in that way as the Chinese asterism Kien Niew (Ox). Ptolemy, sensibly considering these two stars as effectively one, rated them as of the nature of Saturn-Venus, so that they virtually extend the range of Dabih before them. But they are a bit further from Giedi, so there is less of a Martian quality. Horoscopes with these well aspected, therefore, will show an ease of command in state, church or business, but with a tendency towards conservatism, and perhaps a lack forward-looking vision in times of crisis. [3]

Bos rules the front of the left leg 4½ inches below the knee in the human body. [4]

Constellation Capricornus has a great influence over human affairs portending major changes in such areas as climate and political customs. Along with the sign, the constellation is also noted as the “Mansion of Kings”. Unfavorably situated with regards to lunar eclipses, it indicated major storms, especially at sea. [2]

Bos Star Conjunctions

Mercury conjunct Bos: A clever and piercing intellect. [1]

This gives the individual an extremely quick mind. They have quick flashes of insight that is beyond the normal, and a piercing intellect that enables these persons to grasp a given situation instantly. They are clairvoyant and can invent almost anything their mind focuses upon. However, there is a danger here in that their insight and inventive ability can actually help others misuse the information by creating those things that bring destruction and harm to the world. In a positive way, they can change the lives of people through their chosen fields that would generally encompass electricity, radiation, magnetism, mechanical and other professions closely aligned to these areas. Rarely do they become involved with other energies, such as coal, water and so on, preferring to stay with electrical-type energies. Their keen insight is strictly impersonal and does not extend to analyzing individuals. It is a more detached and abstract thereby giving them the ability for scientific and inventive discoveries. They dislike large groups for the most part, and prefer to work alone. Women are excellent at working with children for they can invent or put together things that appeal to the young. [4]

Mars conjunct Bos: This position affects the health, It causes damage to the bone structure of the left leg. There is pressure at this point that also brings about a chemical change which dissolves the bone this causing a ripple affect on the bone structure through the loss of calcium. Later in life, the leg can be shortened somewhat, however, the real problem to the individual is the hot, flashing pain they experience when walking. The pain is sporadic and is directly related to these persons’ anxieties. They experience this difficulty throughout the life. Cool packs with mint herbs on the leg will help as well as consumption of mint teas. In addition, they must learn to control their anxieties and impatience. Impatience and anxiety is the key here. If not controlled, the circulation at this point can be affected as well as the nerves. The diet of these persons must nclude calcium, or calcium taken daily in small amounts. [4]

  1. So spot on – I have exact Bos – Mercury conjuction in 10th house. Yes, I’m working with electricity and clairvoyant energies.
