Armus Astrology

Fixed star Armus has the spectral types A4 and F2, indicating the planetary nature of Venus and to a  lesser extent, Mercury.

ARMUS. η Capricorni. Situated in the heart of the Goat. Of the nature of Mars and Mercury. It gives disagreeableness, contemptibleness, instability, shamelessness, nagging and a troublesome and contentious nature. [1]

ARMUS. η Capricorni. A small star in the Goat’s heart. Color: Orange-red. Spectral class M. This star imparts to its natives a contentious nature, shamelessness, a degree of instability, small troubles. [2]

Armus, η Capricorni is at 12°44′ Aquarius, and the name (Latin) means Shoulder, its position in the figure. It is a Mars-Mercury type by Ptolemy. Like all Capricorn stars, it features prominently with those people who engage in statesmanship, politics, religious and humanitarian causes, and this includes the kind of author and poet who consciously writes with the social impact of his work in mind. After the steady falling-off of initiative, from Giedi (or really from Altair before it) to Bos, we find Armus returning to the fray with great vigor. The image of the Shoulder symbolizes well the willingness of Armus people to ‘shoulder the burden’ at times of crisis. [3]

Fixed star Armus rules the front of the left leg 7 inches below the knee. [4]

Constellation Capricornus

Capricorn has a great influence over human affairs portending major changes in such areas as climate and political customs. Along with the sign, the constellation is also noted as the “Mansion of Kings”. Unfavorably situated with regards to lunar eclipses, it indicated major storms, especially at sea. [5]

There is pressure at this point that also brings about a chemical change which dissolves the bone this causing a ripple affect on the bone structure through the loss of calcium. Later in life, the leg can be shortened somewhat, however, the real problem to the individual is the hot, flashing pain they experience when walking. The pain is sporadic and is directly related to these persons’ anxieties. They experience this difficulty throughout the life.
