Aquarius Constellation [Stellarium]

The Sun joins Albali on February 1

Fixed star Albali, Epsilon Aquarii, is a 3.8 magnitude star in the left hand of the Water Bearer, Aquarius Constellation. The traditional name Albali comes from the Arabic word البالع (albāli‘) which means the swallower. Another name for this star was Nir Saad Bula, from the Arabic term نير سعد ألبلع (nayyir sa’d al bulaʽ), which means the brightest of luck of the swallower. The Latin translation is Lucida Fortunæ Dissipantis.

Fixed Star Albali Astrology

Fixed star Albali is of the nature of Saturn and Mercury (profound liar, thief, blackguard, scandal and slander). “The stars in the shoulders of Aquarius operate like Saturn and Mercury; those in the left hand and in the face do the same”. [1]

Albali is indicative of danger and can cause persecution and even death, but is also said to give good fortune. [2]

Albali, the Lucky Swallower, ε Aquarii, is effectively the first star of the Constellation. With its companions μ and ν, it lies above the α and β stars of Capricorn, seeming to ‘swallow up’ their light with its own brightness and so accounting for its name. It lies just 1°51′ short of Armus, so it can be taken to show a quality of helpfulness and extra energy to whatever Armus itself signifies on a particular chart. [3]

There may be an influence from Neptune as the helio planetary South Node of Neptune is only 0°03′ from Albali at 11°46′ Aquarius.

Constellation Aquarius

Ptolemy makes the following observations: “The stars in the shoulders of Aquarius operate like Saturn and Mercury; those in the left hand and in the face do the same: those in the thighs have an influence more consonant with that of Mercury, and in a less degree with that of Saturn: those in the stream of water have power similar to that of Saturn, and moderately to that of Jupiter.” By the Kabalists Aquarius is associated with the Hebrew letter Nun and the 14th Tarot Trump “Temperance,” over which virtue the constellation appears to have some rule. 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]
