The Sun joins Polaris on June 19

Fixed star Polaris, Alpha Ursae Minoris, is a 2.0 magnitude multiple star located at the tip of the tail of the Little Bear, Ursa Minor Constellation. The modern name Polaris comes from the Latin word for near the pole. The ancient name Cynosūra comes from the Greek word κυνόσουρα which means the dog’s tail. It is very close to the north celestial pole, making it the current northern pole star.

Polaris Star Astrology

Fixed star Polaris is of the nature of Saturn and Venus. It causes much sickness, trouble, loss of fortune, disgrace and great affliction, and may give legacies and inheritances attended by much evil. [1]

The Pole Star is the main star of the small Bear situated on the Tail, has a Saturn nature, combined with qualities of Sun and Venus. It might seem strange to include this fixed star here, as its latitude is about 60° and therefore placed far outside of the ecliptic in which the planets move. Measured on the ecliptic, it is situated closely conjunct with Alpha Orionis, Betelgeuse, the main star of Orion.

The Chinese considered the Pole Star as “the great honorable Lord of the Heavens.” In a relevant position in the natal chart it gives spiritual powers to the nearer, who will be highly respected.  The Pole Star serves as a guide and indicator. If it is conjunction planets in the angles, the native will have a good sense of discretion and is able to follow his or her instincts. The native clearly recognizes his or her aims, and will pursue and achieve them. [3]

Polaris, α Ursa Minoris, the Pole Star, is not as bright as we may think, It is still east to find by following up a line through the lower and upper stars at the end of the pan part of the Dipper. Ptolemy gives it Saturn-Venus rating, entirely right for the star which serves so well to guide us in our wanderings, and that is just what it tells us about people when we find it strong on their horoscopes. According to its aspects, they are excellent or not so good at receiving and giving guidance, but give it they always will, and to any and all who will listen. [4]

Polaris rules the pancreas in the human body. [5]

Constellation Ursa Minor is like Saturn and in some degree like Venus. It is said to give indifference and improvidence of spirit, and to lead to many troubles.  [1]

Astrologically both Bears were said to presage an evil influence. They are particularly injurious as regards to the affairs of nations and kings. [2]

Polaris Star Conjunctions

Sun conjunct Polaris: Many troubles and evils. [1]

These persons will have a difficult time absorbing calcium properly, with the result that they experience indigestion. The problem is not usually related to the pancreas. The difficulty in digesting calcium creates an additional problem with the skeletal part of the head. There would be a continuous imbalance here in spite of the amount of calcium taken. The indigestion would continue as well as the thinning of the skeletal part of the head where they feel sensitive areas about the head. Eating fruit will help somewhat, but they will continue to have these problems. [5]

Sun conjunct Saturn conjunct Polaris: With both the Sun and Saturn at this point, there would be complete bone damage throughout the body, including a weakness in the knees and shoulders. It does ultimately affect the teeth and jaws. [5]

Moon conjunct Polaris: Hatred of the vulgar, ill-will of women and danger from thieves. [1]

Saturn conjunct Polaris: These individuals will experience many weak areas about the body. They are unable to assimilate the foods they eat, so that they experience many different illnesses and weaknesses. The nervous system is usually damaged, affecting the arms and legs. There is an aching they cannot pinpoint, or they would feel that their skin is too tender and highly sensitive. They will experience aches through the arms and legs. [5]

Uranus conjunct Polaris: Hillary Clinton 1°55′.

  1. Hello Jamie:
    Your blog/site has the most advanced features among similar blogs. Thank you. I am now very scared of Polaris. One of my friend’s natal planets is at 28-29 degrees Gemini. I am very CONCERNED for her.

    If you had Jupiter in one of your important houses 1st /2nd /6th for career and work, what would you do?

    What seeds would you sow? I am telling friends and family to read your posts and go on interviews.

    How many interviews/tasks should one schedule for good days like 26th or the 29th of this month if they have planets in Virgo?

    Will many dilute the power?

    I am requesting advice for a strategy. I would be very very grateful if you could please shed some light.
    Sincerely,
    Aaron

    • You really need to find the exact degree of the planet and take into account precession correction because there are 3 stars near each other in this region.

      I don’t use houses, only the cardinal point like AC and MC.

      For strategy, see your yearly and monthly horoscope. Follow the links to transits and moon phases and you can ask a question on those links if you need.
