Polis Star Astrology

Fixed star Polis is of the nature of Jupiter and Mars. It gives success, high ambition, martial desires, horsemanship, keen perception and domination. [1]

Polis is a fortunate star portending success, ambition and truthfulness. [2]

This Jupiter-Mars star shows up in a horoscope with almost the regal qualities of mighty Regulus. Only this star, Polis will indicate more of the high office in spiritual life, Pope, Iman, Archbishop, or at least a prominent Theologian, than in the temporal world of kings and statesmen. Unfavorably aspected, however, it may show more the self-styled pretender to dignity, or the one who on gaining appointment fails to meet expectations. If better aspected, but not aided by Sun or 10th, say, then we still have someone whose interest and knowledge of things spiritual may be both keen and profound. [3]

Polis rules the right leg above the knee in the human body. [4]

Constellation Sagittarius was the House of Jupiter, that planet having appeared here at the Creation, although this honor was shared by Aquarius and Leo. Nor did Jupiter monopolize its possession, for it also was the domicile of Diana. Thus the constellation was known as Dianae Sidus. It inclined to fruitfulness, a character assigned to it as far back as the Babylonian inscriptions; and was a fortunate sign. Yellow was the color attributed to it, or the peculiar green sanguine. [5]

It is a fortunate and fruitful constellation indicating events pertaining to kings or a large portion of mankind. Ptolemy states: “The stars at the point of the arrow have an effect like that of Mars and the Moon; those on the bow and at the grip of the hand like that of Jupiter and Mars; the cluster in the forehead like that of the Sun and Mars; those in the cloak and in the back resemble Jupiter, and to a lesser degree like Mercury; the stars in the feet have a nature akin to that of Jupiter and Saturn; and the quadrangle upon the tail like Venus, and to a lesser degree like Saturn.” [2]

Polis Star Conjunctions

Sun conjunct Polis: This is development of career. There is a blessing here in that they will accomplish their career goals. They have a great talent for accomplishment and are always at the top of the list in career achievements, even though it may be the housewife. Work would be the best in her chosen career. [4]

Mars conjunct Polis: This causes slight chips in the bone just above the knee. There is a fiery energy here that causes the pitting of the bone which increases as the person ages. The damage is irreversible. These persons experience a rheumatic pain throughout this area. A cool, wet towel will keep this heated energy from being too destructive. Small amounts of calcium and consumption of fruits would also be very helpful, as well as almonds and sunflower seeds. Almonds here would be highly recommended. [4]

Saturn conjunct Polis: This does not cause a health problem, but creates a very hard worker. They do not have the same talents as the position of the Sun on this degree. They must struggle to work harder to accomplish their goals, but they slowly proceed onward and eventually, will reach a point where they do not proceed further, usually just below the top position where they find their niche and work hard to support those above them. They are well-liked for their work ethic and are very necessary in the positions they have chosen for themselves. [4]

  1. Do you interpret the nodes on fixed stars as well? I have south node conjunct Polis. I am trying to figure out what it means!?!?

  2. I have Jupiter retrograde conjunct Polis in a tight orb (0 deg 40 min) also conjunct the midheaven but with a broader orb (2 degrees). I feel like that is meant to powerfully impact my life. I just hope it is in a positive way.

    • Oh definitely with Jupiter so close. I would say you have Jupiter conjunct Polis too. Always extend orbs when you have a conjunction like that.
