Even though classified as the beta star of Cetus, it is in fact brighter than α Cetus, Menkar.

Deneb Kaitos Star Astrology

Fixed star Deneb Kaitos causes self-destruction by brute force, sickness, disgrace, misfortune and compulsory change. [1]

Its property is that of Saturn. Associated with it are inhibitions and restraint in every way, psychologically and physically. [2]

It has the alternative name from an earlier Arab source: Difda, Frog, strictly the Second Frog, Difda’l Thaniya, the First Frog having been the star we know as Fomalhaut. In some cultures, frogs are said to be warners of what lies before us, probably because they inhabit bogs and croak at our approach. Fomalhaut os the star of the Divine Messenger Gabriel, generally announcing a good event to come, but a whale more often uses the slap of its huge tail upon the sea to sound a warning to its companions for several miles around it. Ptolemy gives this star the simile of Saturn, which fits the theme perfectly.

The problem with a whale slapping its tail to tell other whales something is that it sounds its presence to human whale-hunters too, to its great peril, even if we are supposed now to have stopped whaling. Making big waves without thought of the consequences is all too familiar an Arian problem, and people with this star less than well aspected on their charts really do bring trouble upon themselves very easily by speaking too much too soon. But if well aspected, we find people who are great at initiating new projects and ideas. [3]

Deneb Kaitos star rules the back of the head, the eyes and cerebellum in the human body. [4]

Constellation Cetus

The Whale is like Saturn. It is said to cause laziness and idleness, but to confer an emotional and charitable nature, with the ability to command, especially in war. Makes one amiable, prudent, happy by sea and land, and helps to recover lost goods. [1]

13th Chinese Lunar Mansion – 室 (Shì) Encampment

Associated with a ceremonial pyre in which victims are immolated, a temple where a sacrificial flame burned, or a house where various sacrificial offerings are stored. Al building will be beneficial. All kinds of good fortune accrue to the instigator of schemes.

Favors are bestowed by officials for work done. Family meetings and the transmission of knowledge to the youngest bring luck and harmony. Heaven will shower its bounteous gifts on the person designated by this sign.

[1] This affects the eyes, particularly the right eye of a male and the left eye of a female.

The cure cannot come through surgery or other medical means. [4] John Wayne Bobbitt 0°19′

    • Thanks so much for the feedback Maria. There is so little especially about interpretations for planets conjunct stars. The more comments the better for everyone.

      • umm…Pioneer, reckless, headstrong, violent temper, many quarrels

        Pioneer could be (people around me tend to say that I am)
        reckless no I meditate thounsand of times things before making a decision (maybe the opposition of natal saturn helps)
        headstrong definitely…and that’s probably what saves me when I face obstacles
        Violent temper …definitely no …I can have time to time a short temper but never violent ( could my saturn oppostion moom have a say here?)
        many quarrels ….many questions here! with who? …Family? Mother? House? Women?….I do have disagreements but I am very patient so people need to push my bottons

        Could it be understood as how other people react to me when a planet activates by transit this star?

        Thanks !!!

        • Maybe Venus sextile Jupiter takes away any violent traits. Same with Sun conjunct MErcury improving communication skills to avoid arguments. That”s just a quick scan of aspect. All the other fixed stars have to be taken into account. Where there are contradictions you can work out which factor is the stronger.

  1. Hey, sooo It’s conjunct my saturn and now i’m scared that i’m going to go blind hahahah, guess i better be a good person right?

  2. I have this fixed star conjunct my natal Chiron 2°33′. This year is my Chiron return. Bad? does not begin to describe the chain of events. I feel like I die every day, feel like I will literally die soon.

    • Jezi, wow, me, too – this fixed star is conjunct my natal Chiron at 2°25′… which is retrograde, and intercepted, and conjunct my North Node, to boot… And I’m also in my Chiron return year… Please know that you’re definitely not alone in this torture… I can relate… Stand strong… Do not let this overcome you.
