Ras Elased Australis Star Astrology

“Of the nature of Saturn and Mars, and has been called “He who rends.” It gives a bold, bombastic, cruel, heartless, brutish and destructive nature, but artistic appreciation and power of expression.” [1]

“These star in the Lion’s head; ε Leo, Ras Elased Australis, and μ Ras Elased Borealis; are said to indicate those with an appreciation for language and a power of expression, but also those who may be heartless and cruel.” [2]

“Credited with properties such as conveying higher spiritual gifts of the Logos to those men who are able to conceive them. In primitive natives, this star may become a danger, if bound up with a poorly placed Saturn or Neptune, severe psychological depressions are indicated and possibly even suicide. In conjunction with a ‘strongly’ placed Mars, the Lion’s Head will make for feverish diseases and if conjunct with Uranus, dangers of accidents are present. Bismarck had this fixed star positioned exactly conjunct his Ascendant; this fact as well as the part played by other configurations gave this chancellor his mental superiority.” [3]

Marking the eyebrow region of the Lion the Ras Elased Australis star gives the quality of looking carefully at a situation before forging ahead into it. [4]

The fixed star Ras Elased Australis rules the outer edge of the right kidney. [5]

Ras Elased Australis Star Conjunctions

Saturn conjunct Ras Elased Australis: Hillary Clinton 1°20′.

Uranus conjunct Ras Elased Australis: This can be quite destructive, as this planet at this point disrupts the spine and affects the muscle on the right side of the 14th vertebra (7th Dorsal) up to the middle and upper back. There are spams at the outer walls of the kidney on the right side that are sporadic and sharp. There can be a burning sensation on the right side of the body in the back. This causes them to unbalanced in such a way that they can become paranoid about their loved ones and those close to them. They begin to dominate everyone in their attempt to keep control, and it can become a selfish and violent manipulation even to the point where they do not want their loved ones in their sight. Women with this configuration would become so insecure that they become paranoid about losing their support and security. Diet cannot help here; however, peppermint tea taken daily would be soothing to that area of the body. [5]

  1. Ras Elased Australis conj’s my MC, and Ras Elased Borealis is at the midpoint of my MC-North Node (which corresponds to Madonna’s birthday, the day Elvis died, and the day I saw Yes).

  2. It conjuncts my north node (20º) which trines with MC, Neptune and vertex ….sounds serious!
