Fixed Star Cor Caroli

Canes Venatici Constellation [Stellarium]

The Sun joins Cor Caroli on September 17

Fixed star Cor Caroli, Alpha Canum Venaticorum, is a 5.6 magnitude binary star system that 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 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 contains 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 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]

The star Cor Caroli has a most benefit reputation as regards the heads of state. It was said to have shown with particular brilliance when Charles II returned to London on May 29, 1660. [3]

Constellation Canes Venatici
