Fixed Star Asterion

Canes Venatici Constellation [Stellarium]

Fixed star Asterion, Beta Canum Venaticorum, is a single star situated in the Hunting Dogs, Canes Venatici constellation. Magnitude 4.25, spectral type G0 V.

Asterion (Ἀστερίων) means Starry in Greek. Chara (χαρά) means Joy in Greek. Chara originally applied to the “southern dog” but it is now the official name for β Canum Venaticorum.

In 2006, astronomer Margaret Turnbull labeled Beta CVn as the top stellar system candidate to search for extraterrestrial life forms. [1] This is because its spectral type G0 V is very similar to the Suns (G2 V).

  1. Interesting. This is conjunct the sun, moon and jupiter in my natal chart, and i’d like to believe all the good qualities for sure, but is the ‘love of hunting’ metaphoric? I don’t eat other animals and have a problem with those who hunt as a ‘hobby,’ but in other aspects of life, i do go after what i want. And again hounds are protective of what they love.
    I hope this was helpful(ish) feedback.

    • His writing sounds like it is literal but i would expect that for more evolved souls it would be metaphoric. Depends of course, what if you were selected for an episode of Survivor? Could you survive in the wild by catching your own food?

    • Asterion Conjunt my Mars. I also dont eat animals. Hunting is just searching determinedly for someone or something which I feel like is my whole life purpose sometimes, add that with mercury in Sag and I be searching determinedly for far away ideas. My mind is crazy and it influences my action to the point that I go out on expeditions in the mountains and shit searching for answers to life lol

  2. Interesting! This one conjuncts my natal Jupiter and is close enough to my Juno in Virgo the sign of service 😉

  3. It is exactly on my Descendant, so am I drawn to people who show me respect? Certainly, I know I don’t suffer fools gladly!.
