Seginus Star Astrology

Fixed star Seginus gives a subtle mind, shamelessness and loss through friends and companies. [1]

On the left shoulder of Bootes has the star gamma, γ, Seginus, a word coming from Latin for corn-crop, and thus meaning a reaper or harvester. In some illustrations Bootes hold a reaping sickle in his hand. To the Arabs it is Al Haris, the Guard or Protector. With its Mercury-Saturn simile it emphasizes the protective nature of Bootes, and ourselves. The planetary connotation also shows up well the potential for writing or public speaking in those who have it in their horoscopes. [2]

Seginus rules the nerves of the right kidney in the human body. [3]

Bootes constellation gives prosperity from work, strong desires, a tendency to excess, a fondness for rural pursuits, together with some liking for occultism. [1]

Seginus Star Conjunctions

Moon conjunct Seginus: Preferment by indirect means followed by disgrace and ruin. [1]

Mercury conjunct Saturn conjunct Seginus: This brings difficulty with the flow of energy on the inside of the right kidney. It brings on spasms of the nerves which closes off proper blood flow through this area, bringing on failure of the kidney to function. This necessitates using a dialysis machine in order to enable these natives to function every day. The energy and the nerves become so completely clogged that the kidney cannot function. At first, these persons experience a numbness there, and when the condition becomes critical, they experience excruciating pain which may result in the kidney being removed.

The key here is salt. It is salt in the diet that brings on the problem, and those who consume great amounts of salt will experience the disease very early in life. Another problem is sugar. These persons should eliminate sugar from the diet as they usually have low blood sugar levels and are treated for this condition. Sugar should be replaced by honey in the diet as honey is a natural healer for the body. This condition can also be helped by pepper grass which stimulates the nerves and the flow of energy in this area. Just a small piece of leaf in a salad would be sufficient. [3]

Jupiter conjunct Seginus: Tony Abbott 1°33′.
