Al Jabhah Astrology

AL JABHAH. η Leonis. From Al Jeb’ha, the Forehead. It is situated in the Lion’s mane. Of the nature of Saturn and Mercury. It gives loss and many dangers, a violent and intemperate nature, and to a military officer danger of mutiny and murder by his soldiers. These characteristics are most marked when the star is rising. [3]

AL JABBAH. η Leonis. A blue white star. Spectral class AOp. This star is in the Lion’s mane. This star imparts to its natives the potential for greatness, but not fame, good judgement, riches, and negatively  foolhardiness, scandals, cleverness, self seeking, many anxious moments. [4]

Al Jabhah rules slightly below the top of the kidneys. The critical point is between this star and the previous fixed star Adhafera. If the Sun or Uranus is in the outside of this midpoint by one degree, they would take on the personality of the star before it. The energies double if one of the planets is directly on this degree. [5]

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.” [3]

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.

Saturn conjunct Al Jabhah: This concerns the person who keeps trying to force their way to the top. No matter which way the person is trying to direct their energy – in love or leadership – there is always another who will beat them out of it. Someone else is picked instead. They keep trying, but are always one step behind. This can be the man who peruses a woman he is fond of, only to lose her to another who has stepped right in and takes her away. This causes them to become introverted with their love feelings and their chance for success, so they decide to live with whoever comes their way even though they may not really care for the person. They would settle for a job position they know they can hold on to and is not threatening to them. Illness here would come from the heart. They have longings for things they want and cannot seem to obtain. They hold all their feelings within, even their feelings for a leadership role. If these natives would just love others in a humanitarian way, they would be able to respond to the love of others and function with this degree. The key here is the love of humanity – the Aquarian type of love. If this is not accomplished, the flow of vitality and blood to the heart is slowly cut off and the heart stops functioning. [5]

Uranus conjunct Al Jabhah: These natives force their attention on those they are pursuing whether it is a love situation or to obtain a desired position. They attract a great deal of attention to themselves through elaborate schemes and also by forcing others to help them. They go out of their way to do great deeds for people in order to win their confidence, and it is to such an elaborate extent that others feel indebted to them. Their manipulative energies are used to reach their objective; however, it eventually turns foul. In extreme cases in the chart of males, they can push a loved one to a point where jealousy might incite another to murder the native. This would be especially true if Uranus was also conjunct the Sun or Saturn at this point. This does affect men more than women; however, there are women who would allow this extreme energy to manifest. [5]

  1. I have Jupiter and Pluto conjunct this star and have felt the “always last” effect my while life. They are square Saturn and opp sun so this is built into my lessons in life.

    The solar eclipse Aug 20 will set this whole thing off as it occurrs opposite my sun. I’m hoping it will break the spell of my birth fate. Set the next few years off in a good direction.
