Fixed star Alderamin, Alpha Cephei, is a 2.5 magnitude blue star in the right shoulder of the King, Cepheus Constellation. The traditional name Alderamin comes from the Arabic الذراع اليمين al-dhirā‘ al-yamīn, which means “the right arm” (of the King). In Chinese, Alpha Cephei is known as 天鈎五 (Tiān Gōu wu, the Fifth Star of the Celestial Hook.)

Fixed star Alderamin is located near the precessional path traced across the celestial sphere by the Earth’s north pole. It will be the pole star in 7500 AD.

Alderamin Star Astrology

Constellation Cepheus gives authority and a sober mind, sometimes making its natives judges or arbitrators, but exposes to cruel and severe trials. If Mars afflicts the luminaries from Cepheus, especially if in an angle, it causes death by hanging, decapitation, crucifixion or impalement. [1]

In classical times Cepheus was said to presage earthquakes and other events that affect large portions of mankind .[2]

The ancient astronomers were Cepheans who made Cepheus the father of their royal family of stars. [3]

  1. You kill two birds with one stone here Jamie, plus the stone is wrapped in a message for the lucky soul that finds it:

    1. The Suns transit of the Vernal Equinox (anunciation) , followed a week later by a transit of Alderamin. Would this make him one of the Magi Kings’ at Epiphany?

    2. Next look at Jamie Bamber’s birthday and place this actors birthtime at the ascendant.
