Oculus Star Astrology

Fixed star Oculus 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]

Oculus star rules two inches below the center of the calf of the left 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]

Oculus Star Conjunctions

Sun conjunct Oculus: There is a slight lack of energy flow to the lower part of the calf. This manifests as an imbalance similar to gout thus causing the person to walk with a stiff gait. They are not able to properly manipulate the lower part of the leg so that the stiffness is reflected in the way they walk. [4]

Moon conjunct Oculus: Nicholas Culpeper 0°23′

Mercury conjunct Oculus: A clever and piercing intellect. [1] Jeane Dixon 0°56′, Jamison Twins 0°59′

Jupiter conjunct Oculus: Princess Diana of Wales 0°55′

Saturn conjunct Oculus: This is similar to Saturn at Dabih. It is somewhat more severe in that deterioration occurs far more rapidly. They are unable to put weight on their leg because of the dull ache, and support is required at times. These individuals should wear shoes with foam rubber soles. A tight bandage around the leg is not recommended as the energy flow is even more restricted. [4]
