Sadalmelik Star Astrology

Fixed star Sadalmelik is of the nature of Saturn and Mercury. It causes persecution, lawsuits, extreme and sudden destruction and the death penalty. [1]

Of the solar spectra, Sadalmelik is the “lucky one of the king(dom)”, but can portend danger and cause persecution and even death. [2]

Sa’ad Al Malik, α Aquarii, but in fact now marginally less bright than β, is another Saturn-Mercury type, like Sadalsuud, and with very similar meaning for us. Perhaps it is rightly now the less bright of the two, in these days when good fortune for kings is expected to be no more important, at best, than the same for everyone else. Yes, it is an indicator of the most brilliant success and favor for those in authority, and a sign that they will put it to good use if they have it well aspected.

But any Saturn-Mercury simile is surely a note of warning for any would abuse good fortune or be miserly about sharing it, a warning reiterated by the proximity of the Archangel star Fomalhaut only 24’of arc later in longitude. People doing well in high places will do yet better to remember that they are being watched from places higher still, watchers who no doubt have an unbiased interest in the well-being of everyone, king and commoner alike, in the case of the advance of the entire human species and the planet it dwells upon.

Nashira and Sadalsuud were the focal center of a very good area of the sky which was all about good rulers and successful sheikdoms, Saturn-Jupiter, and good things happened for their people, Saturn-Mercury. And they carried this benefic area onto include the stars Sadalmelik, Good or Lucky King, α Aquarii, and the mighty star of Archangel Gabriel, Fomalhaut, Mouth of the Fish, α Piscis Australis, with its reminiscence of that earlier star Nunki, Edict from the Sea, or freely interpreted, Word of God. [3]

Sadalmelik rules the heel of the right foot in the human body. [4]

Constellation Aquarius appears to have some rule over the virtue of temperance. The beauty of Ganymedes and his flight through the air also link it to the ideas of personal charm and aviation with which it is certainly connected. [1]

The constellation of Aquarius is traditionally the place of good fortune. It indicates full-flowing rivers and springs and portends a sufficient amount of water for agricultural requirements. When in mutatine rising (Sun in 12th house conjunct Ascendant) or in vespertine setting (Sun in the 7th house conjunct Descendant) aspect to the Sun the indication is for rains (but not floods). In medieval astrology Saturn in the constellation of Aquarius meant that mankind was completely dominated by this planet. While none of the named stars are of the Saturnian spectra, the house of Saturn can be expected to exert its influence throughout the constellation. [2]

This causes a distortion of the ego. These persons delude themselves into believing they are something they are not. They cannot differentiate between illusion and reality. They can literally be the wanderers, roaming over the earth. They are generally confined to institutions early in life as their relatives do not know what to do with them. They continually wander without caring whether or not they have anything to eat or that they may be injured in some way. This is a very heavy karmic position. In a former life, they were harsh and mistreated others who were mentally retarded. They were cruel and took advantage of those who were unable to take care of themselves. So in this ife they are at the mercy of everyone, and are subject to the cruelty of those who are frustrated over their mental imbalances. [4]
