The Sun joins Dschubba on November 25

Fixed star Dschubba, Delta Scorpii, is a binary star on the right claw of the Scorpion, Scorpius Constellation. The name Dschubba comes from the Arabic word jabhat, meaning forehead (of the scorpion). It was once called Iclarkrav, a translation of the Arabic word Iklil al Akrab, meaning the Crown of the Scorpion. Yet another name, Isidis, probably comes from the Egyptian Isis.

Dschubba Star Astrology

Fixed star Dschubba it is of the nature of Mars and Saturn. It causes sudden assaults, malevolence, immorality and shamelessness. [1]

Acrab and Dschubba, both in constellation Scorpio, and positioned next to each other, are supposed to correspond to a Mars character with a blend of Saturn characteristics. Dr Koch is of the opinion that both these stars are doubtful; the effect of these two stars has yet to be researched more fully. According to tradition, these fixed stars are credited with giving the ability for research, especially into things of a particularly secret and hidden nature. For this to be, however, further influence of the sign Scorpio and planets Mercury and Uranus have also to be present; preferably these stellar bodies would be positioned on the Midheaven or Ascendant and be near another stellar body pointing to mental capabilities. In lower types, however, a tendency to falsehood and treason can be noted. Both stars are a poor augury for material wealth. There will be difficulties, impediments, or loss, dependent upon the position these stars  have in the cosmogram. In mundane maps, there is an indication of mass catastrophes should Mars, Saturn or Uranus be in this first degrees of Sagittarius, especially if in an angular position. [2]

δ Scorpii is better named as either Isidis or Dschubba. The origins of both names are obscure but the first probably connects with the Egyptian goddess Isis; the second looks like a pretty amateurish Germanic corruption of Al Jabbah, the Forehead., which is where we find it on the Scorpion. Since that name has already been used for a star in the forehead of Leo, we shall do better to keep it here as Dschubba, the clumsy spelling notwithstanding. The Babylonian title Qabu sha Rishu Aqrabi, Centre of the Head of the Scorpion, confirms our ‘guess’ at the Arabic title before it was transliterated by Herr Somebody, but a still earlier Mesopotamian culture had it as Jia Jan Ju Sur, which seems to have meant the Forbidden Tree of Life in Eden. So again we find this Constellation luring us back to look at our own origins as a species of living creature.

Ptolemy classes it as a Mars-Saturn star, not a very delightful combination, yet one which makes certain sense when we remember that a scorpion’s armament is at the rear, not in the head where this star is. It is in fact a fighter of very great skill, and that characterizes Mars-Saturn perfectly. Anyone with Dschubba strong in their horoscope is likely to show a patient and wary approach to any situations, but this will belie the skilled determination which will then be brought to bear. Scorpio is famous for the surgeons born in it and this star shows up just the qualities which they need to have. The same applies to generals, policemen, private investigators and secret service agents, many of whom have Dschubba well placed and aspected. In research of all other kinds too, it distinguishes the real adept. [3]

Dschubba and Acrab in the forehead were given the natures of Mars and Saturn by Ptolemy. However, both are B-type stars and should have a nature of Jupiter. In classical times some astrologers considered Dschubba to have the effect of Mercury. [4]

Constellation Scorpio was the dreaded symbol of darkness in the region of the Euphrates. Comets in this region of the sky were said to portend plagues of “reptiles” (read as locusts or other insects harmful to agriculture). In Classical Scientific Astrology the fruitful nature of Scorpio was mentioned. This attribute also applies to the constellation. The constellation of the Scorpion has been considered unlucky from earliest antiquity. [4]

This interrupts the nervous system slightly at the hip. These are individuals who do not know when to close their mouths. They get into situations through their incessant speaking without understanding that they are insulting or injuring another. Physically, they feel a tingling sensation in the hip area that may travel up the spine. This is not a serious disorder but as the individual ages, there can be a lack of circulation in this area. Rubbing the left hip and buttock area with any oil can correct the problem, This especially affects the female gender. [5]

Venus conjunct Dschubba: Quiet, reserved, jealous, selfish, favorable for gain. [1]

Mars conjunct Dschubba: Immoral, criminal, violent, evil environment, sudden or violent death. [1]

These individuals love contests, and this configuration energizes the playfulness of the spirit in a way that is unacceptable by others. This could be a person involved in sports who would go to extreme limits in their chosen field. This extreme playfulness would extend to anything physical, including sex. They love to inflict injury on an opponent when they are in a combative sport such as boxing or wrestling. They go beyond limits in weight-lifting and automobile racing. Their highly energized system can cause engine malfunctions in their automobile. In school, they would be the ones who continually study to a far greater degree than would be necessary. In prestigious positions they would be the fiery and aggressive types such as the “hell and damnation” preachers who preach goodness on one side but do the opposite in their own personal lives. [5]

This represents poor circulation in the hip area. It causes energy at this point to be sporadic this affecting the nerves and blood flow. This is not a constant problem and can be relieved by drinking small amounts of ginger root; that is, only a pinch of ginger in a large cup of hot tea twice per week/ Ginger is quite powerful and should be taken only in very small amounts. [5]

Neptune conjunct Dschubba: Active mind, weak character, easily led, ruined through opposite sex, organizing ability, high position but subsequent disgrace, accidents from fire, water and electricity, death by accident or by human hands. [1]
