Giedi Star Astrology

Fixed star Giedi is of the nature of Venus and Mars. It gives beneficence, sacrifice and offering. [1]

Giedi, the lucky one, has a nature as the Sun and personifies the total nature of the constellation. [2]

What we should expect from Giedi and Dabih strong in a horoscope is that the person having them there will show great patience and trust, Faith, in a crisis, yet with a decisiveness that will take the action needed, not fudge the issue. Of course that means that such people are likely to meet with crises in plenty and, if the aspects be harsh ones, more crises than anyone would wish.

If Saturn or Mars be among the planets thus involved, the strain upon the person may be too much in the end, but the benefics, Jupiter and Venus, will show such a person to be a seemingly inexhaustible tower of strength to others in difficult times. [3]

Giedi rules the center of the calf of the right leg 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]

Giedi Star Conjunctions

Sun conjunct Giedi: Peculiar events, unexpected losses and gains, sometimes great good fortune. [1]

Moon conjunct Giedi: Peculiar and unexpected events, eccentric, public criticism, new and influential friends, valuable gifts, love of respectable women but difficulties and sometimes platonic marriage. [1]

This causes extreme emotional problems. These natives have an extreme emotional chemistry. When this position is poorly aspected by the transiting Sun, these persons will become unstable mentally for two or three days as the aspect becomes exact. It is very difficult to live with a person with this degree, as the mental problems become unbearable at times. There is a restricted energy affecting the balance of their emotional makeup and nervous system. They do become unbalanced and are literally insane for short periods of time. Often they remain secluded as they do not relate very well with the public.

This point is affected adversely with the generation born with Pluto in the sign Leo, an opposition aspect. The result would be an extreme emotional obsession depending on the circumstances. Revenge, hate, or just self-destructiveness is often the result with this Pluto opposition energy. The individual simply tears down one cycle of destruction only to begin another in an entirely different direction. They generally begin the destruction within themselves first in order that they can feel the affect. They then spread this emotional destructiveness to those they can bring into their cycle – people they are able to victimize easily. They involve themselves in sadistic and masochistic games that ultimately results in more resentment so that the emotionally destructive cycle continues throughout the lifetime.

Even though there is no opposition affect by Pluto in the chart, the individual with this position is in a totally unbalanced emotional state. There is not another position that is more difficult emotionally than this fixed star degree. These natives choose this for their incarnation for the reason that there were many imbalances from previous lives that had not been worked out. The energy allows them to be irresponsible in their emotional reactions as they do not care how others are affected by their emotional outbursts. Those involves with these persons consider them irrational and insane and accept them as they are.

The best therapy for those with this position would be for them to work with others who have the same emotional imbalance, as they themselves are helped through service to others. If they chose not to be of service to others, their own emotional imbalance would become more severe, especially when the transiting Sun aspects their natal degree by conjunction, opposition or square. [4]

Mercury conjunct Giedi: Romantic, psychic, vacillating, many love affairs some of which cause notoriety, may elope with married person. [1]

Venus conjunct Giedi: Many strange and unexpected events, peculiar and romantic marriage, may be separated for years from partner through secret government or political reasons of which even native may be ignorant. [1]

Mars conjunct Giedi: Abrupt, aggressive, much criticism, public position. [1]

These natives are concerned with strengthening their calf muscles and legs. They are the persons who would run with weights on their legs and lift weights with their feet and toes. This eventually causes problems with their legs due to the intensity that this is done. The energy is restricted causing an interruption of blood flow to the legs. The legs should be relaxed for periods of time to allow a smooth flow of energy to return. Continued physical activity would subject the native to shin splinters. [4]

Jupiter conjunct Giedi: Government position, preferment in law or Church, marriage abroad, favorable for gain and inheritance. [1]

Saturn conjunct Giedi: Genius but kept down by circumstances, peculiar and occult early environment, birth amidst strange conditions while mother is travelling, many narrow escapes, associated with the stage, rarely marries. [1]

Uranus conjunct Giedi: Peculiar environment, bad morals, strong passions, genial, affectionate, vacillating, small self-confidence, too trusting, peculiar ideas on marriage and religion, ambitious but too weak to rise, bad for domestic affairs and children, if any, though there may be illegitimate ones, violent death. [1]

This definitely is a karmic position. This position deals with the individual’s involvement with groups. They are ones found working with people with mental problems. They choose to be with groups that deal with those who are retarded, or are mentally afflicted in some way. This could include those having difficulty with speech, hearing, and eyesight. These individuals are excellent at rehabilitating other beings. However, this is an important fixed star position as individuals with this placement have chosen to do this in this life. They are given special gifts so they can work with afflicted persons effectively. Natives of this degree who repudiate their chosen karmic destiny will eventually suffer from the same affliction as those they had promised t o help, generally through an accident of some kind. This is a very special position enabling these persons to help other beings so that they can atone for transgressions in a former life. [4]

Neptune conjunct Giedi: Psychic in childhood, never understood by others, cruelty from a parent, many disappointments, peculiar conditions in domestic life, greatly influenced by others, accidents, death in early life or middle age. [1]

    You and your children, as well as your mother, have a great year! 🙂
    My son, Alonso, has this star in his ascendant (3:54). Do you have any comments for this position?

    • I would expect much the same as the general meaning, perhaps like the Sun too. Thanks for your contributions over the years and enjoy 2016!
