Canes Venatici Constellation [Stellarium]

The Sun joins Cor Caroli on September 17

Fixed star Cor Caroli, Alpha Canum Venaticorum, lies in the Southern Hound of the Hunting Dogs, Canes Venatici constellation. The name Cor Caroli means Charles’s Heart , and was named in the 17th century to honor the King Charles I of England who was beheaded in 1649.

Being a recently added constellation, the naming of the stars has become very confusing, with Asterion referring to the hound which does not contain the star Asterion. The southern hound is called Chara and containes α Cor Caroli and β Asterion. Chara is Greek for Joy, or Dear, and has also been called “dear to the heart of her master”. The northern hound is called Asterion and contains M51 Copula. Asterion means Starry.

Cor Caroli



Cor Caroli Star Astrology

Fixed star Cor Caroli was originally named Chara, leader of the two dogs by Hevelius. When one sees such confusion enter the scene right at the inception of a constellation, one can only marvel that there is such amazing consistency about the more ancient figures in the sky. Cor Caroli has the same Saturn-Venus qualities as Asterion and Copula, which can signify great respect given to the individual for services well given. [1]

Constellation Canes Venatici

Canes Venatici gives a love of hunting and a penetrating mind, making those born under it faithful, keen, clever and fond of speculation. [2]

12th Arabic Manzil – Al Sarfrah

Gives prosperity to harvest and plantations, hinders seamen, good for the bettering of servants, captives and companions.

With Moon: Travel, navigate, sow, plough, marry and send messengers.

27th Chinese Xiù – 翼 (Yì) Wings

This is the wing of the Phoenix. This mansion coincided with the time
of the Grand Assembly when the Emperor customarily gave speeches and praise, followed by a Grand Concert. This mansion is thus associated with music and the arts.

Modern portents are very gloomy, though. The modern auspices are chronic illnesses and calamities befalling both spouses of marriages on this day. Those who take on outside work come home to find themselves cuckolded. It presages a child having to leave the country. It is inauspicious for paying homage to one’s ancestors. It is a mansion denoting pomp and official ceremony.
