Fixed Star Pálida Astrology

Fixed Star Pálida [Stellarium]

Pálida is a star on the right arm of the Southern Cross, constellation Crux.
Pálida is a Portuguese word meaning “Pale (one)“. In China it is Shí Zì Jià sì, “Fourth Star of Cross“. Indigenous Central Australian tribes include Pálida in their Iritjinga, “Eagle-hawk“.

Constellation Crux gives “perseverance, but many burdens, trials and responsibilities, together with much suffering and many hardships. In connection with rulerships of countries it may be noted that Brazil was named the Land of the Holy Cross by the discoverer Cabral on May 1st 1500, and that the constellation Crux has been represented on the postage stamps of that country” [Fixed Stars and constellations in Astrology, Vivian E. Robson, 1923, p.41.]
