Fixed Star Antares

The Sun joins Antares on December 2

Fixed star Antares, Alpha Scorpii, is a variable double star in the Heart of the Scorpion, Scorpius Constellation. It is, on average, the fifteenth-brightest star in the night sky. It ranges in brightness from an apparent visual magnitude of +0.6 down to +1.6, although usually near a magnitude of +1.0. Spectral type M1.5Iab-Ib.

The traditional name Antares is from the Ancient Greek Άντάρης, which means anti-Ares, or the rival of Mars, because of its similar color to the red planet. In Babylonian from at least 1100 BCE, Antares was called GABA GIR.TAB, “the Breast of the Scorpion.” In MUL.APIN, (1100 and 700 BC), it denotes the breast of the Scorpion goddess Ishhara. In ancient Mesopotamia, it was Urbat, Bilu-sha-ziri (“the Lord of the Seed”), Kak-shisa (“the Creator of Prosperity”), Dar Lugal (“The King”), Masu Sar (“the Hero and the King”), and Kakkab Bir (“the Vermilion Star”). In Persia Antares was known as Satevis, one of the four “royal stars”.

Antares Astrology

According to Ptolemy, it is of the nature of Mars and Jupiter. Alvidas gives Jupiter sextile Venus, but this is unlikely considering the decidedly martial and malefic nature of the star. It causes malevolence, destructiveness, liberality, broad-mindedness, evil presages and danger of fatality and makes its natives rash, ravenous, headstrong and destructive to themselves by their own obstinacy. [1]

Anonymous of 379 AD said Antares is like Jupiter and Mars. [6] The spectral type M1.5 indicates a Saturn nature.

α Scorpii. A binary star, red and green, on the Scorpion’s body. “The Rival of Mars.” Spectral class MO.  This star gives the native a keen mentality, courage, sudden happenings, unforeseen events, accidents, liberal tendencies, self-destruction, broad-mindedness, and violence. [7]

Antares in the constellation of Scorpio is, as its name Ant-ares says, of Martian nature, but to this Mars nature, powers of Mercury, Jupiter and also Saturn are added. Antares makes people tough, belligerent and pugnacious. This is an important star for military personnel and is said to convey mental alertness, strategic ability and courage and to make daredevils, especially if tied up with the Midheaven, Ascendant, Sun or Jupiter.

According to tradition, Antares is of violent character and is credited with being significant for a violent death, either in battle or by the process of law. On the other hand, danger may come about by fire, weapons or machinery.

Antares was conjunction Ascendant in the birth charts of Ghandi, who died by assassination; General Schleicher, murdered by Hitler; and Helen Keller. A conjunction with the MC has been recorded with boxer Ten Hoff and Bormann, a minister under Hitler. A conjunction with the Sun can be found in the charts of British Prime Minister Churchill, Field-Marshall Kesselring, and the former Reichsarschall Goering. Antares was conjunction the Moon of Copernicus and bound up with the lunar Node and Moon of the philosopher Nietzche, who, at age 45, became an imbecile. The Austrian Kulturphilisoph, Rudolf Kassner, was born when the fixed star was conjunction Mars. Because he contracted infantile paralysis, he had to use crutches all his life. [2]

The prime star of Scorpio is Antares, a name meaning ‘Rival to Mars’. In the night sky, it is often more visible than Mars itself. In Babylon, it was Urbat in the asterism Hurrus, Divine Protector. The Babylonian title brings us to this star’s role as one of the four Archangel stars: Fomalhaut – Gabriel, Aldebaran – Michael, Regulus – Raphael, and now Antares – Uriel. The City of Ur, where Abraham was born, is said to have been the first city to be built after the Great Disaster and was given the name of Earth itself: Urs. That city stood close to the site of later Babylon itself, not too far from modern Baghdad. Uriel, the Archangel not mentioned in the sacred texts made available to the public, was the one who held the secret knowledge of the Great Disaster and only revealed it to those judged able to accept it and still believe in the Divine Goodness in all that befalls us. Again, this is so very Scorpio in nature that one cannot miss or deride its ring of truth.

Ptolemy classified Antares as a Mars-Jupiter type, and all astrologers have noted it as an indicator of success in war and high command therein, but not forgetting that one’s opponent may have the support of Aldebaran, the star opposite to this one, and star of Archangel Michael, commander of the Heavenly Host itself! What does tend to show up when these two stars are both engaged on the horoscope is a conflict, either the starting date of the war or the natal charts of the leaders, is that peace rarely ensues before the total and crushing defeat of one side or the other. And it is a war that escalates to huge proportions, even to a world scale, as aggressive Mars is precedence over expansive Jupiter would imply.

But war is not the only outlet for the symbolism of Antares, and it indicates just as often the individual’s great store of energy and optimism to undertake ventures that others could not attempt. According to the planets involved and the house on the horoscope where Antares is found, such ventures can include anything from sports achievements and exploration of Antarctica or the Moon to diplomacy of the most hazardous kind or scientific research at the extremes of human knowledge and ability. [3]

Antares rules the right side of the third vertebra from the bottom (fifth lumbar). [5]

Agrippa1531 corScorpii.png  Antares is one of the 15 Behenian Fixed Stars. Its image is a man armed with a coat of mail, or a scorpion. It gives understanding and memory, helps against evil spirits, and the power to drive them away and binding them. Rules sardonyx, amethyst, long aristolochy and saffron. [1]

Constellation Scorpius

The Scorpio was the dreaded symbol of darkness in the region of the Euphrates. Comets in this region of the sky were said to portend plagues of “reptiles” (read as locusts or other insects harmful to agriculture). In Classical Scientific Astrology, the fruitful nature of Scorpio was mentioned. This attribute also applies to the constellation. The constellation of the Scorpion has been considered unlucky from earliest antiquity. [2]

Sun conjunct Antares: Pretended religion, insincere, honor and riches ending in disgrace and ruin, military preferment, the danger of treachery, violence committed or suffered, fevers and sickness, injuries to the right eye, violent death. If rising or culminating, great honor through violence attended by difficulties and casualties. If with Mars also, pestilential disease. [1]

Mental alertness, strategic ability and courage to make daredevils. Unfortunate for the eyes. [2]

This is a great ‘caution’ conjunction! Natives can gain high preferment, and suddenly, the rug can be pulled from them – natives from less than desirable environments can have sudden and unexpected violence either thrust upon them or they will be the perpetrators. There may be many honors, but there is the danger of violent situations to or around the native. This conjunction gives to those who deserve it. Generally, this conjunction can produce grandly liberal persons. The native can gain high honors, riches, gain preferment in writing, martial, and politics. Possible legal problems, which could be endless. [7]

Moon conjunct Antares: Popular, broad-minded, interested in philosophy, science and metaphysics, liable to change religious opinions, influential friends, favorable for business and domestic matters, active in local affairs, great power, honor and wealth but benefits may not prove lasting, the danger of violence, sickness, drowning or assassination. Liable to blindness or eye injuries, especially if at the same time Mars or Saturn are with Regulus. If Saturn is with Aldebaran, there is the danger of a violent death, probably by hanging; but if Mars is with Aldebaran, death by a stab, blow or fall, especially if in angles. [1]

High preferment in occult, martial, sports and matters dealing with public affairs. The native gains influential friends who will come to their assistance. Possible to change religious opinions and affiliations. This conjunction is good for business matters. There is the possibility of chronic, difficult-to-diagnose or possibly serious illness with this conjunction. The negative nativities will be more affected by self-destruction and violence. Generally, any benefits the native receives under this conjunction are not of a lasting nature; however, there is the possibility of great power, authority, and wealth. [7]

Unfortunate for the eyes. [2]

A splendid and illustrious life; great, distinguished and opulent nature. [6]

Moon and Ascendant or Midheaven conjunct Antares: Honor and preferment but many dangers and calamities. [1]

Mercury conjunct Antares: Suspicious, wrongfully accuses friends, unpopular, uses ecclesiastic influence in business, money obtained slowly and with much difficulty, the danger of sickness to the native and his family, and death of a relative at home or away. [1]

The native may develop a suspicious attitude and, if so, can wrongfully make accusations. More advanced natives will make use of humor to offset this negative factor in this conjunction. If the native is religious, they will make use of their religion for business purposes. These natives, of a negative nature, can be plagued with many problems. [7]

Venus conjunct Antares: Insincere, dishonest, energetic and able but selfish. [1]

Positive nativities are able, selfish and energetic. They gain friends because of their knowledge and capabilities. Negative nativities have the same traits but are subject to impulsiveness, sudden decisions, and possibly self-destruction. Both positive and negative nativities are subject to domestic and romantic problems. This conjunction can bring the native to the brink of self-destruction unless the native is strong enough to avoid and recover from disaster. Generally, they require assistance. [7]

Erwin Rommel 0°36′, Jimi Hendrix 1°21′, Diego Maradona 1°24′, Jimmy Page 1°54′, Vespasian 2°13′.

Mars conjunct Antares: Detrimental habits powerfully affecting the life, quarrels with friends and relatives, fairly favorable for gain. If, at the same time, the Moon is with Aldebaran, there is the danger of death by sword or hanging. [1]

The native is subject to being misunderstood by their friends and relatives and is subject to differences, but not of a lasting nature. Self-destruction is possible. Natives should learn not to get involved in senseless controversy. [7]

If associated with Mars, courage is said to become foolhardiness, leading to increased dangers. Natives with this particular configuration have to be prepared at all times for sudden incidents and unforeseen events, and potential accidents. [2]

This brings brutality, and the person is in a rage over many things. This individual can even feel the rage at the bottom of their spine as this energy comes up the spine, causing energized adrenal glands. They are enraged over the philosophies of society, such as the court system, religious disciplines and the government. They are enraged over any limitations, those limiting structures in the home, work, the government, religions and the military. They do not understand what their problem really is. They just know they are angered at everything. They respond to incidents that are trivial to others with chaos and aggression. They are especially destructive to those close to them, for they are the ones who receive the greatest anger. These natives are never in a calm state and will literally beat anyone down who gets in the way. They do not feel any remorse or sorrow after hurting another being; they absolutely lack compassion. [5]

Jupiter conjunct Antares: Great religious zeal, real or pretended, ecclesiastical preferment, a tendency to hypocrisy, benefits through relatives. [1]

High preferment in martial, politics, religion, finance and all matters dealing with the public. These natives have a tendency to be hypocritical. They can exhibit great zeal, pretended or not. [7]

Mental alertness, strategic ability and courage and to make daredevils. [2]

Heinrich Himmler 0°36′ (and Uranus, MC), Alan Turing 0°37′, Nero 1°51′, Nicolaus Copernicus 2°08′

Saturn conjunct Antares: Materialistic, dishonest through circumstances created by the environment, religious hypocrisy, many disappointments, loss through quarrels and legal affairs, trouble through enemies, many failures, hampered by relatives, unfavorable for domestic matters, much sickness to and sorrow from children. If, at the same time, the Moon is with Aldebaran, the danger of death by sword or hanging. [1]

(1° orb): This planet restricts mobility, and these natives generally end up walking with a cane. Their nerves are usually shortened so that one leg is slightly shorter than the other, causing them to walk with a limp. This is painful, but the cane offers support so that the pain is bearable. They eventually have more pain due to an imbalance of the spine caused by an interrupted blood flow at that point. Taking small amounts of garlic daily would help the nerves through the area and stimulate the energy flow. Deep within themselves, these people do not like to participate in daily activities. They do not like to help others, and there is a subconscious dilemma that brings on this blockage. They like to feel they are too good or too self-righteous and above others to participate in normal day-to-day activities. These persons use their restrictions in mobility to place themselves above others. [5]

Uranus conjunct Antares: Abnormal and extreme ideas, hypocritical, lies and exaggerates, extremely socialistic, incites to riot, lawlessness and anarchism and in danger of imprisonment on this account, occasional poverty, disharmony with relatives, more than one marriage, unfavorable for children, violent death. [1]

This causes spasms through the sciatic nerve and down through part of the thigh. It is not painful, but it is unstable as the person will shake slightly when they try to put weight on that side. Hops would be of great help and should be taken three times per week in an herb tea such as chamomile, which would relax the muscles. [5]

Neptune conjunct Antares: Shrewd, cunning, unbalanced and mentally unsound, secretive but apparently candid, dishonest, a tendency to theft, economical, untruthful, strange religious ideas, evil environment, gain through hard work, sudden and unexpected death brought about by treachery or through enemies who will escape retribution.

    • Thanks so much for your input on the fixed stars Carmen. This is exactly what I was hoping for by posting them. Should be a valuable resource in years to come.

  1. I loved this article until reading the conjunctions. WRONG! Not One thing is true just saying!

    • Maybe not in case of yours.. but don´t you forget, what´s right or wrong, fits to you, to your own experiences or not depends on the rest of your birth chart..

    • Good to hear Holly. Robson is usually good but he is the only astrologer who ever went into such detail about conjunctions to the fixed stars. This is the main reasons I wanted to post these articles so people could add comments. Over time it should be helpful.

  2. Sorry if my english isn´t that perfect.. I´ve got the Antares on my ascendant..with a very tight orb.. I could tell you so many things about me and my life, I could even write a book about it.. You would be scared, dear Jamie Partridge ,about yourself, or about what you know about this constellation..Btw.. Bruce Lee was said to have the Antares on the ascendant also but not that tight as in case of mine..Thank you so much for this wonderful, highly interesting report about it..

  3. i have antares sandwhiched between my sun and mercury and i have a scar on my right eyeball from surgery,
    I I don t know much about fixed stars, only just starting reading about them, aim to research further

    • So it will be well under one degree orb when you correct for precession. I’m assuming you are older than 15 🙂

  4. I have Saturn conjunct Antares, 1 degree orb,
    Venus conjunct Aldebaran, partile,
    Pluto conjunct Regulus, 1 degree orb.

  5. Ah, ok Jamie, you need some real feedback. So, Saturn – Antares, sorrow through children – true in my case…..although I work hard on transforming the sorrow in more love towards my son….but I also have Sun conjunct Pleiades.

    Next: do not like to participate in daily activity – very, very true, I like seclusion, not buzzing out there, I am not on any social media thing either, I write only on astro sites, like yours.

    Next: do not help other – by far not true, in fact my helping skills are so deep seated in me that I attract people which need my help. Most of the time I help ungrateful people, but I don’t care too much….

    The leg thing – not true in my case, I hope in nobody’s

    Religious hypocrisy – I have no religion – my religion is Universe, Soul, Spirit. It is true that I look down in a quiet way on people which are enrolled in any religion. However I, myself I was into religion once upon a time.

    Materialistic – I tend to be more and more, but I am also extremely generous.

    Here you are, I gave you some feedback on Saturn conjunct Antares.

    Happy New Year!

  6. Hi Jamie

    I noticed Antares conjunct Part Fortune is unfortunate. What if it is in a composite or synastry chart?

    • Only guesses but I would think it’s also unfortunate. That would take a lot of research of relationships to get an idea. I will be happy just to add some celebrity conjunction for these fixed star pages.

  7. hi Jamie, great article, thks for sharing. now what a view, my progressed Mer stations on Antares, hopefully you can say also something positive to that aspect! I am a 5 times Virgo, that makes Mer very important, 🙂 thks

    • This should be interesting. I have not researched progressed planets with the stars. Is Mercury stationing direct or retrograde?

  8. …also thinking that all points of a chart are of oneself and have an axis and the possibilty to flow on these…so will keep on having an eye on Aldebaran…nice Sunday!

  9. Hi Jaime. Thanks for your great website. Please could you give some indication of the meaning of Pluto conjunction Antares. (It’s at 8.20 degrees) Someone I know has that, opposite my name asteroid (at4 degrees Gemini), and we are not friends now for some time. His behaviour worries me a lot.

    • Hi Maria, I would go with the general description of the star and perhaps a bit like with Saturn. Antares does seem to me to be like Pluto and perhaps that is why people say Pluto rules Scorpio and the 8th House. But it is the stars in the Stinger which are most like Pluto, Antares is more Mars-Pluto to me.

      • Pleas pleas pleas Antares pluto i need to know more,There’s nothing on it anywhere!!!!!THANK YOU

        • Yes it is frustrating. The best way to gain some understanding is to look at your generation to see any similarities in general with what you read about Antares.

  10. thank you Jamie for such a thorough reading of this star. Antares is the mid-point of my Sun and Moon in Sagittarius. I did have to have laser surgery on my eyes for a particular form of narrow-angle glaucoma which I was diagnosed with in my late 40’s. Of course August 24 2016 MARS and SATURN conjunct smack on this degree. I know it is related to the archangel Uriel of which there doesnt seem to be that much clear info. I love that book The Living Stars.

    • best of luck Tara. I believe you should not worry about dates for surgery, even if the transits look bad. I love that book to, we need more of this style of approach to the stars.

  11. I just started studying the 4 archangel stars again. Great website Jamie. I went to a lecture by Dr Morse in 90/91. Caledonia rd in London, then i went to his house and had a reading.Still have the tape.He had some very interesting ideas about the fall of man. 19• scorpio, the acursed degree of the acursed sign.

  12. What does it mean for me in my chartI have Mars in Sagittarius at 9 degrees and I cannot find a job for nothing especially since Saturn and Mars are retrograde in Sagittarius and stationed at 9 degrees. When shall I get or the best time to apply for jobs. I was bormln March 19, 1969 at 9:00 a.m. Central time.

    • See Mars conjunct Antares Benita. You also have Mercury square Mars as the most challenging aspect in your chart so patience is needed with everything. Work on that aspect and you should notice a big improvement in communicating and applications.

  13. My Part of Fortune is conjunct this star. It says “poverty.” But I imagine that other aspects and stars can counteract this.

  14. In 1988, ’91(repeatedly) and around the time of this July’s full moon, I had a run-in with unexpected incidents that could have caused the loss of eyesight in one or the other. Somehow, the description of Moon conjunct Antares strikes a bell with me (intuitively).
    Were these incidents connected to some link with Antares? Am a Saggitarius decan 3, 19th Dec. ’72 0240 hours.

    • You have Mercury conjunct Antares by about 2 degrees orb. When you give time of birth you also need to give place of birth so we can find your Ascendant. But you do not have Moon anywhere near Antares. Your Sun conjunct fixed star Etamin “Right Eye of the Dragon”. Your Sun is also conjunct stars around it which are connected to blindness.

  15. Dear Jamie, I’m lucky that I found Your site! Thanks for sharing the knowledge! I’m on research: the big “meeting” on 24 August seems really important for me as well. I was born with conjunction of: Jupiter-Uranus-Antares on Saggitarius 9:22′ (wich means I always feel like in the birth canal…) My question relates to the “housing”: I would like to know, wich areas of life/houses are affected by this big transit: 1 or 2. or all? Please check out if you have time for this. I need more informations to understand, what’s happening with me. Something magical 🙂 Thank You!! Esther 1983.02.23 23:25 Budapest, Hungary

    • You asked the wrong person Esther because I don’t use houses at all, not even signs. But using Placidus I see your conjunction is in the first house. It will b e about Jupiter Uranus issues in all areas of life though. Travel, belief, philosophy, university, morals, spirituality and mysticism. Mars Saturn will push something out of that birth canal, a higher awareness no doubt.

  16. Hey mr. Partridge,I’m still A bit New to these fixed stars ,I noticed that I have Neptune and Mars in Sagittarius,Could you tell me What conjunction they have with antares?. + Any other fixed stars that stand out. 10-15-80 Thanks!

  17. Dear Jamie, please it is not clear for me if this aspects of Antares refers to the natal or transit chart.

  18. Hi jamie, i got antares conjunct my sagitarius MC 9 degrees 50′, and my mc opposite my jupiter in gemini 4 degrees 51′ , i hardly get what i wanted especially education and career. what should i do? 27yo guy

  19. Wow! My daughter Mars is conjunct Antares at 9 degrees! With Pluto in the mix (7 Sagittarius)….she’s definitely ruthless. My son’s ascendant is also exactly conjunct Antares and so is my mother’s Venus! Apparently a big star in the family.

    • I often find a common star occurring within families. What is really really interesting is to look back at ancestors and see the links through time. I was lucky because my father got right into genealogy and got copies of birth certificates from way back in Scotland where they recorded the time of birth.

  20. I left a reply up above cause i’m not sure how these things work but like i asked pleas pleas write something on antares conjunct pluto it would mean the world.Thanks

    • Like I said, it is best left up to your generation who live it every day. The best I could do is work out a list of celebrities with Pluto on Antares and look for a common theme. I am in the process of doing this for all the stars so I will remember Antares is a priority.

  21. What about Antares conjunct natal vertex exact and also North Node? Any ideas about this?

    • For the Nodes you can combine the influence of the Sun and Moon with the fixed stars. Same for Vertex but add the Ascendant description too.

  22. Hello Mr. Jamie I have my Part of Fortune Conjunct Antares = Poverty is this really true, I’ve been looking for a job quite a while now things are just going very crazy in my family and immediate environment. Can you possibly tell me a little of whats going on right now in my life. Aug 19 1994 Denver, Co Really need some “Expert Advice” and you sound very enlightening. Thank you.

    • I cannot justify this interpretation. In time I will add more celebrities to the list of conjunctions to help us out.

    • Depends what is meant by poverty, will you sacrifice material gain for more important and worthwhile things in your life, maybe that choice is not unique to antares, most sacrifice for a greater good. In fact unless you sacrifice it will not be a greater good for you. Antares is the heart of the scorpion, the heart of living a life with personal meaning, the heart of what we are willing to starve for, be tortured for, be jailed for and to die for. Its message is simple what do you value enough to die for, what is more important than your comfort and your life? That can be love or that can be change like Gandhi or MLK. but whatever it is, it always requires a sacrifice for how else would we understand its value and importance to us. To have the heart of the scorpion is to have the capacity to make the ultimate sacrifice but the choice is always ours. Personally this Mars conjunct Antares would always choose the sacrifice and the life worth living o ver existence in comfort but you my friend are always entitled to different perspective for there are no truths but our own and none of us are capable of choosing what is right for another person.

  23. I actually have Neptune conjunct Antares, and I find the majority of the description does not fit me. Wait, I could be being dishonest and untruthful. They are both conjunct my MC/Mid-heaven, if that makes a difference. Perhaps because they are culminating? (read elsewhere)

    • Hi Rav. Yes, Antares conjunct Midheaven is very fortunate. A star on a very personal point like Sun, Moon, Ascendant or Midheaven will trump an outer planet conjunction.

      • Fortunate in what way? It appears there isn’t a whole lot of information out there, at least that my Google skills is uncovering. Thank you for your response and input!

  24. hi mr jamie .. i have sun in 13 sag 11’14” .. is it conjunct Antares ?

  26. I know someone with Saturn conjunct Antares by minutes… Bitch to the max. Makes so much sense now. ”these persons use their restriction in mobility to place them-selves above others”… hear hear

  27. I’m a 10 degree Sagittarius and Antares was at 9 degree Sag in my birth date. I also have Mars conjunct Pluto in Scorpio. My early life was rife with violence, abuse, trauma, and danger. Sun conjunct Antares sounds so foreboding in this description but I have also been on a lifelong quest of self-mastery. Can this… Will this aid me, or will I end up getting assassinated before that? 😉

  28. Hey Jamie!. I have Neptune in Sagittarius in my first house. I was wondering if this influence would strongly apply to me?

  29. Hi!… thanks for this work. My moon is 11degrees 15 min Sag… I can agree with the Antares conj. the moon description… very spot on… it is what I am know for…. but, just wondering about the Pluto conj. Antares?….

  30. My native Sun is at 10 degrees Sagittarius and Mars at 8 degrees Sagittarius, 2nd house. Obviously both conjunct Antares. Today’s full moon is conjunct all of them. Should I worry or look forward to all of them? Thanks

  31. Astrosplained, I confirm you finding about Saturn-Antares Conjunction to be so True. Understand that my son didn’t behave this way when he was little. He became so B.2t_Max after the last 12 years returning from Mil. Svc. So Knucklehead.

  32. Astrosplained, that proves that our internal planets move as we grow older. Not fixed as most astrologers assumed. They affect our gene and DNA. I see these on Scienctific Astro-Tools.

  33. Hi Jamie. Do I have anything to worry about with Antares. My birthday is 12. 29. 1956. I was born in Miami Fla at 2:27 am. My Saturn is at 9 degrees sagg. Moon at 6 degrees sagg and Venus is at 11 degrees sagg. Seems like there is something coming up with Antares. Also if it makes a difference in regards to Antares my Mars is in Aries at maybe 12 degrees. Scorpio ascendant and Neptune close to ascendant. Little worried so if you shed a little light on this I would much appreciate it. Thank you. Cynthia

    • Hi Cynthia. Your Moon and Venus are not within orb of Antares but Saturn is very close by only 0°09′. Mars trine Saturn does make a difference because it gives you more energy, patience and determination to succeed. This is a very helpful aspect because it does lessen the challenging influence of Antares on Saturn.

  34. My son has Pluto conj Antares in his 10th…and his Mars is in his 8th house…

  35. I have pluto conjunct antares in 8th house can you give a explanation on the energies?

  36. jamie i am not getting by ascendant on fixed star antares; it says riches and honors and in last lime benefits seldom last the last line is about benefits or about riches which will also not last

  37. This troublesome character has Mars conjunct Antares plus conjunct Neptune 29 degrees Sc0rpio. A cast of characters along with other troubles gives extreme misfortune, anger ,cruelty, extreme stubbornness. Mars conjoin Neptune gives shrewdness, cunning, unbalanced, secretiveness, dishonest, tendency to theft, untruthful, evil environment, and enemies. This character sees a troublesome thief and liar , hopefully, gone once and for all. Always read the fixed stars along with the planets. Some foxes fool some people who he always plays on his sympathy.

  38. I have Pluto conjunct Antares at 8°42′ Sagittarius (orb 1°04′)
    I will look at the things going on in my life to find information about it.

  39. I read a lot about Antares conjunct part of fortune meaning poverty, but could it be only for a portion of time? Or is it a lifelong thing? My family used to be poor, not that we are super rich now but I earn a reasonable amount of money. Both antares and my part of fortune are in my 10th (not conjunct with MC)

    Did you post people’s income to show us that not having Antares conjunct POF is not the only thing that indicates poverty?

    • I posted the incomes to try and disprove that Antares conjunct Part of Fortune leads to poverty. I plan to use this method to test the more unfortunate interpretations of older fixed star astrologers. We have such powerful astrology software to apply a more scientific method of analysis.

  40. Antares is directly conjunct my jupiter (9 degrees) and within its orb is also my moon at 7 degrees. I also have aldebaran conjunct my mercury (10 degrees), which opposes jupiter and anteres.

  41. I have Antares exact on my ascendent too. I actually like it. It makes me a warrior and I always fight for What I believe in and for just cause. In the end it’s one of the 4 ROYAL fixed stars for a reason, no need for all this doom and gloom

  42. Hello i have Antares conjunct 12 degree Sagittarius rising and i don´t really know what that means.

  43. My friend is a hero of the war in Croatia (’91-‘ 95) a true living legend. Unprecedentedly brave! A controversial but honorable and honest person, he says everything to others in faces, no matter how embarrassing it is. Warriors value him, politicians fear him. He was the youngest major in the war. And he still is at 51 years old, because he didn’t let the politicians buy him. I don’t know exactly what time he was born, but according to the date (November, 14.1971) he has a triple conjunction, Jupiter, Mercury and Venus at 11° Sagittarius with Antares at 9°.

    • Dear Damir plz read my comment on antares below…also i have to say what about so called “war heros” ? Or should i call them war criminals ? If you think like this then Prigoschin also is a hero of war for many nationalist russians and further on ss-soldiers as the founder of nazi-organisation “odessa” after WW2 Otto Skorzeny rescuing mussolini…these were all men of extreme violence and also very outspoken persons therefore prigoschin was killed by putin…so what ? Dog eats dog or what ? Violence and murder is what it is and i dont have to justify it under witch fucking flag or ideology it is done…do think your ante pavelic and ustascha were beter then what serbs did under milosevic in 90s ??? Come on…plutonic murder, extinction, turning life to death and labeling this as “heroic” ? Really ? Then you can call Himmlers SS also “heroic” organisation wih their sun conj. saturn in scorpio…It is antares/mars/pluto energy death and underworld so i dont have to justfy the deeds of all those ideologic mass murders of any kind of nation…greez from “germany”

      • And what about german “war hero” Hans-Ulrich Rudel – a very similar case like Skorzeny….?

    • That would be interesting! Probably good timing to as I have some life threatening aspects coming in August in my chart according to a Sidereal astrologer that I consult. Thank you for your interest. Cynthia

  44. Lucky “Strike” Luciano, Al Capone, Mafia, CIA, FED, Skull & Bones, the biggest military power of the entire world to rule it, holocaust of the first nation people, 30 million slaves from africa on their cotton fields etc. etc… and on the other side a bigot “GODs Own Country” that every year has no money for it’s own people….guess WHO ? Sagittarius Ascendent with ANTARES on it…guess who…LOL, if only there were no VICTIMS of their f***ing policy..

  45. AND: Antares must also have a plutonian quality as it is the heart of scorpio of tropical sign scorpio pluto is chief of the underworld…gangsta nation…so USA has also pluto in second house opposite mercury in the eight house witch is also plutonic. So what about the high ambitions of sagittarius ? Pseudo-humanistic and greedy world domination bigotry, not peaceful at all (every year provoking new wars, coup d’etats, civil wars in OTHER countries) Also masters of propaganda (mercury-pluto). Hidden agendas and societies…Violent and lying freemasonery..(neptune conj. midheaven) Tell me more i have to know about plz…

  46. Klaus, if your ranting is Moon conjunct Galactic center, Progressed Henge Proclamation, and want to share operations with Andrew Tate, kicking (Nike) around a few heads (Aries) to make friends and influence people (Carnegie)…

    • No it is’nt but i know putin has galactic center with mars… further on you speak in riddles i don’t quite understand paul ..

      • Putin, I hear he was a good cabby, quietly delivering the Zeitgeist (guest of the light) like all of Klaus’ disciples jetting into the fray with their pseudonyms and budgets…

        And the Cure? It’s Monday, by Friday you’re in love with the artwork.

        • Paul, i got no budgets, disciples and trollz BUT those who make this f**cking “Zeitenwende” THEY have…also i got no weapons and over 30 different secret agencies like usa to secure world domination with military and propaganda….
          i can stand for myself in my opinion and i don’t need pseudonyms…keep da frequency clear so don’t make nebulous hints here cuz i am not Putins Troll and can think for myself ok ?! Also i did not mention Putin as a “warrior of light” so what do you mean ? I don’t care cuz deciding between satan and luzifer is never a good option…the only thing that bothers me is that people down anywhere have to pay the f***ing price for the policies of their rulers…do you really think there is much difference between russia and america and the so called “west” concerning that ? And what should be that friday’s summa cum laude “artwork” mission accomplished of american policy you think of ? A world wide paradise called “new age” ? You think their “opus magnus” will be “a global promised land” ? Hahaha…saturn-pluto in capricorn 2020 speaks not for that…reaching for total control eh…3rd world war etc. …And aquarius doesn’t change that fact cuz then you get intelligence serving the rulers…robots, AI,internet, sattelites and so on….saturn is the master of the world and uranus only gives him new ideas in reaching total control. And from pluto the ruthlessness…that will be the “cure” you get on friday becoming cyborg slaves of NWO who get a chip in the head after birth so they don’t need to control media for their mk-ultra brainwashing…and they will sell us that as a “benefit” for our daily lifes….have a nice day if you can…

  47. I was born the day before that, November 13, 1971, and I have that same triple conjunction on Antares. I’m also a Scorpio sun. I have no warlike tendencies, I hope I don’t go blind or senile ( I do worry about this). I also have Pluto/moon conjunction in Libra and Mars in Pisces. I think those two things mitigate my warlike tendencies. I would love to embrace the heart of the scorpion as I have many planetary energies up in the mid-heaven surrounding the Scorpius constellation. But this interpretation of Antares has me scratching my head, and I’m not sure how much I resonate with all the deceiving and subterfuge. I have secrets, yes, as a scorpio, but my secrets don’t involve power over others. Help me out here….

    • Hi tammy don’t worry too much about that…some people may rule their stars but there are astrologers who say mostly people react on their astrological matrix on the primitive level and therefores predictable…this is not meant to be nosy cuz everyone is on a way and must make experiences with these energies anyway…we should not think we have total control over destiny and ourselves just cuz we do astrology and think how conscious we are…also as you mentioned you have complexity inside your soul so at one time you can be very scorpio and otherwise your pisces turns out which then makes you sorry if you did too much powerplay before…further on in libra pluto can turn out as an “harmony dictator” where you avoid and despise anger and agressiveness and have the fixed idea of a world and relationships whithout conflicts. Mars in pisces as the traditional first ruler of scorpio supports this. Maybe i could bring some thoughts to you…soul is a theatre whith many players…
