Fixed Star Adhafera [Stellarium]

The Sun joins Adhafera on August 20

Fixed star Adhafera, Zeta Leonis, is a double star in the mane of the Lion, Leo Constellation. Magnitude 3.33. Spectral type F0 II.

Adhafera forms a double star with an optical companion (35 Leonis) that has an apparent magnitude of 5.90. The two stars do not form a binary star system because Adhafera is 274 light-years from Earth, and 35 Leo is only 100 light-years from Earth.

The traditional name Adhafera comes from the Arabic الضفيرة (aḍ-ḍafīrah) which means ‘the braid/curl’.

Constellation Leo

Ptolemy makes the following observations: “Of the stars in Leo, two in the head are like Saturn and partly like Mars. The three in the neck are like Saturn, and in some degree like Mercury. . . . Those in the loins . . . Saturn and Venus: those in the thighs resemble Venus, and, in some degree, Mercury.” It is said that the stars in the neck, back and wing all bring trouble, disgrace and sickness affecting the part of the body ruled by the sign, especially if they happen to be in conjunction with the Moon. By the Kabalists, Leo is associated with the Hebrew letter Kaph and the 11th Tarot Trump “Strength.” [1]

In mundane astrology, Leo Constellation is associated with royal events especially the ascension or death of kings and queens, the election or death of heads of state, assassinations uprisings and massacres, currency and the stock exchange, the Vatican and European Union.

Sun conjunct Adhafera (No orb): This causes a disturbance in the personality by distorting their ability to give and receive love. There is great ambition here and they see everything as a challenge, something that they must subdue and control. The challenge extends to their love affairs, their work – everything. They cannot work for others for very long as these persons would want them out of their way so they could take over. There is no health problem connected with this degree; however, as they get old and are not in a position to challenge anyone, they can go into depression. Since they can no longer be manipulative, they begin to feel useless and become depressive. [2]

Sun conjunct Uranus conjunct Adhafera: This can be the Sun’s influence or the influence of Uranus, and would be similar to the Sun or Uranus at the degree but with both in conjunction, however, they can become extremely over-zealous in pursuing a goal, thus creating far more opposition from others. This, in turn, creates more hostility in these natives. [2]

Uranus conjunct Adhafera (0°30′ orb): The keyword for this placement is “disheartening.” This point creates electrical energies striking out in many combinations that can be used in many different ways. These are the individuals who are always attracted to someone who is not attracted to them. They go after the love and the position in life of someone who is opposed to their controlling and manipulative energies. They are constantly trying to reach a leadership or high position in life but rarely succeed as they seek positions beyond what they are destined to have. They continually reach for something that is unobtainable. A male with this degree could ultimately look for the favors of men since they would be subjected to far more opposition from females. This, however, would not apply to females with this degree. Eventually, these persons give up their attempts for conquest in love situations. Insofar as leadership and direction of others, they could move up to a certain position of leadership in a minor way, but never to a high enough position to satisfy their ego. [2]

  1. My natal Lilith is at 28 Leo. I’m very sensitive to substances, poisons etc. (though I think natal Neptune is involved in that, via opposition to Venus). Must say, many of the Sun conjunction traits show up as well. Wonder if that’s because Lilith is ruled by the Sun in Leo?

    Very interesting, as usual. Love the fixed star delineations, thank you!

    • You may be right there Bp but I have not paid too much attention to Lilith with the fixed stars. I mean I do take note but personally have some trouble deciphering Lilith as it makes up my tightest natal aspect square Moon.
