Sadalsuud Star Astrology

Fixed star Sadalsuud is of the nature of Saturn and Mercury. It is said to cause trouble and disgrace. [1]

The star Sadalsuud is the “star of mighty destiny”. Its solar nature presages great honor and riches. Some modern astrologers assert that Sadalsuud indicates trouble and disgrace. [2]

β Aquarii. Sa’adalusu’ud, ‘Luckiest of the Lucky’, is one of the two most important stars Aquarius stars, included in every worthwhile astrological list. It is universally recognised as a Sign of Good Fortune for all who have it prominent in their horoscopes, though like all such promitors, it should not be abused. Gamblers especially should beware of taking foolhardy chances when planets in transit or progression on their horoscopes are aspecting it by squares, oppositions and the like.

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]

Sadalsuud rules the right leg just above the ankle 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]

Sadalsuud Star Conjunctions

Sun conjunct Sadalsuud: Occult interests, psychic, wealth through opposite sex involving litigation, domestic harmony. [1]

Moon conjunct Sadalsuud: Reputation through occult matters, respect of friends, favorable for gain, peculiar domestic conditions. [1]

Mercury conjunct Sadalsuud: Social success, favors from opposite sex but some transitory difficulties, retirement owing to abuse of position, sudden loss through speculation, domestic sorrow and trouble. [1]

Venus conjunct Sadalsuud: Strange events, romantic and peculiar marriage entailing separation for government or political reasons. [1]

Mars conjunct Sadalsuud: Difficulties through occult matters. [1]

Similar to Mars at the fixed star Castra and Nashira. This position affects the health. This point causes damage to the bone structure of the right leg. There is pressure at this point that also brings about a chemical change which dissolves the bone, thus causing a ripple affect on the bone structure through the loss of calcium. Later in life, the leg can be shortened somewhat; however, the real problem to the individual is the hot, flashing pain they experience when walking. The pain is sporadic and directly related to the anxieties of the person. Impatience and anxiety are key words here. The high energy factor at this point can not only affect the bone structure, but also the muscle tissue next to the bone. They can become quite impatient and irrational because of the pain they experience, so that the head is affected. Sharp pains can be felt from the leg to the head. Temper tantrums and irrational behavior is often the result, along with shouting and hostility towards others.

These individuals need to apply cool packs to the leg four times per day. Cool teas, such as spearmint and peppermint should be consumed, as well as cool packs consisting of these herbs. Parsley should be taken daily as it will help soothe the area. The diet must include calcium, or calcium taken in small doses every day. Biofeedback would be an excellent therapy for these natives as it will help slow the deterioration of the bone structure through the mental process. Stressful pain is often felt by these natives by the time they reach the age for thirty-five. [4]

Jupiter conjunct Sadalsuud: Litigation, material and social success, difficulties in marriage, may marry abroad or a foreigner. [1]

Saturn conjunct Sadalsuud: Sharp, cunning, dishonest, immoral, cold, unsympathetic, hard-hearted, disgraces an honorable father, hypnotic influence over opposite sex, many intrigues wrecking homes, death through female’s revenge. [1]

This is a critical configuration. It causes the actual decay of the bone at this point of the body. This is a critical point since the entire weight of the body rests on this spot, Jogging would not be possible with these persons. The bone structure here deteriorates through a flaking process, The particles circulate to other parts of the body that can cause infections as well as swelling. Doctors are unable to connect the swelling and infections to the deteriorating of the bone at the lower part of the leg. The flaking of the bone structure leaves it in a ragged state which affects the nerves that can cause infection and swelling of the ankle as they get older. This is not a disease that can be overcome. There is great difficulty in walking and they generally require a cane after the age of forty. These individuals do not know how to live harmoniously with friends, and the more they find fault with others, the more severe the disease becomes. The difficulty with friends is that they become isolated and others do not wish to be around them. The natives need to understand that they are somewhat strange and other people do not comprehend them easily. If they would accept this, the deterioration of the leg would lessen to a great extent. The key here is to live in harmony with others.

Calcium is absolutely necessary in the diet, but it must be in solid form that would require it to be chewed. Cottage cheese, almonds and peaches would be excellent for the diet. Peaches will soothe this area and help distribute calcium to this point. It is important that the calcium in the food be chewed well in order that it be energized to this part of the body. [4]

Uranus conjunct Sadalsuud: Occult interest, very unfavorable for women, sensitive, emotional, vacillating, weak mind, easily influenced, led astray in early life, indiscreet actions, trouble through opposite sex, bad for marriage before middle age, accidental death. [1]

Neptune conjunct Sadalsuud: Mediumistic, good-looking, youthful appearance, success in occupations connected with amusements or ornament, domestic harmony, many moves and changes, peculiar matrimonial conditions, sudden death. [1]

This is not a constant problem to these individuals but it is one that is not understood. It causes an impediment of the tendons at this point, so that when they are walking the ankle can hang up and they are unable to put and weight on the leg until it is revitalized by rubbing or the placement of a warm pack on the area. There is no deterioration at this point, but the impediment is always there and these individuals never know when the ankle will hang up. As they become older, the more accident prone they become due to this problem. This point needs to be rubbed frequently to keep the energy flow moving through it, especially when arising in the morning. There is no cure for this problem. [4]
