Fixed star Terebellum, Omega Sagittarii, is a 4.7 magnitude star on the rump of the Archer, Sagittarius Constellation. The traditional name Terebellum is a Latin translation from the Greek word τετράπλευρον (tetrápleuron). Ptolemy  originally used this term for a quadrilateral of 4th magnitude stars, all within two degrees of each other:

Omega Sagittarii, at the northeast corner.

Terebellum Star Astrology

Fixed star Terebellum gives a fortune but with regret and disgrace, cunning, a mercenary nature and repulsiveness. [1]

Terebellum rules three inches below the right knee in the human body. [2]

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]

Terebellum Star Conjunctions

Mars conjunct Terebellum: This is not an easy position. It creates an extremely aggressive individual who is ready to take over any situation whenever the opportunity presents itself. They seize every opening that would enable them to be in a top position. Their true love is large machinery, and in the military they can be found around tanks, or something equivalent, that can go over rocks and crevices and around mountain areas. They become very aggressive in nature, and will get rid of anyone who may get in their way. They will pull another down who tries to keep them from reaching their goal, even if it takes deceit to accomplish it. They do exceedingly well in positions that require aggressive or militant behavior. These persons are not generally the well educated type, so that they seldom reach the very top position, but they do get very close to the top for the most part. This is a frustration for them in addition to the fact that there would be nobody left to pull down after they reach the highest level their ability takes them.

This can apply also to a female with this fixed star degree; however, they go about it in a more devious manner. In both the chart of a male or female, they can develop severe headaches due to the frustration when they are being threatened or if another is attempting to pull them down in status. The headache would be felt from the top of the forehead to the back of the head. [2]

Uranus conjunct Terebellum: This is a strange energy point. This planet causes many conflicts in that these individuals can become very popular or very unpopular very quickly. Here is the person climbing up the ladder of success when all of a sudden the ladder is pulled out from under them. It is generally due to a shake up in their organization and is not due to personal reasons. It is generally a change in the structure of the company or organization so that they are reduced in rank to accommodate a vacant position. The change could also result in a sudden promotion due to an unexpected vacancy. They are always involved when there is a change in the organization and seem to be the ones chosen to make the change. The changes are seldom made smoothly. [2]
