Dabih Astrology

Fixed star Dabih has the spectral type G9 or K0, which indicates the planetary nature of the Sun and Mars. A refining influence comes from the smaller components with spectral types A0 (Venus) and B8 (Jupiter).

Sun-Mars: Fearless, in tolerant, warlike skill, over-confident, fierce, cruel, vindictive, energetic organizer, danger to the eyes, accidents, violent death. [2]

Venus-Jupiter: Refined, good, high morals, vivacious, sincere, pure, healthy, artistic, fortunate in love and marriage, help through relatives. [2]

DABIH. β Capricorni. A double (but telescopically multiple) star, orange yellow and sky blue situated in the left eye of the Goat. According to Ptolemy it is of the nature of Saturn and Venus; and, to Alvidas, of Uranus and Saturn conjoined in square to Mercury. [2]

DABIH. β Capricorni. A dwarf star of the spectral group F8 and B8. These are double stars, each double of the same spectral class. The native gains recognition, is subject to losses; the native is unfortunate, suspicious, mistrustful, reserved, subject to disappointments. [3]

Dabih has a double spectra and is of the nature of the Sun and Venus combined. [4]

What we should expect from Giedi and Dabih strong in a horoscope is that the person having them there will show great patience and trust, Faith, in a crisis, yet with a decisiveness that will take the action needed, not fudge the issue. Of course that means that such people are likely to meet with crises in plenty and, if the aspects be harsh ones, more crises than anyone would wish. If Saturn or Mars be among the planets thus involved, the strain upon the person may be too much in the end, but the benefics, Jupiter and Venus, will show such a person to be a seemingly inexhaustible tower of strength to others in difficult times. [5]

Fixed star Dabih rules the center of the calf of the left leg. [6]

Constellation Capricornus

Ptolemy’s observations are as follows “The stars in the horns of Capricorn have efficacy similar to that of Venus, and partly to that of Mars. The stars in the mouth are like Saturn, and partly like Venus: those in the feet and in the belly act in the same manner as Mars and Mercury: those in the tail are like Saturn and Jupiter.” By the Kabalists this constellation is associated with the Hebrew letter Yod and the 10th Tarot Trump “The Wheel of Fortune.” [2]

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. [4]

Fixed Star Dabih Conjunction

Ascendant conjunct Dabih: David Bowie 0°00′, Lionel Messi 1°06′, William Butler Yeats 1°23′.

Midheaven conjunct Dabih: Joe Rogan 0°06′, Carl Sagan 0°10′, Alan Turing 0°37′, George Washington 0°43′, Queen Victoria 0°52′, Steve Forbes 1°07′, Marcel Marceau 1°15′

Descendant conjunct Dabih: Joseph Goebbels 0°56′, William Blake 1°03′, Celine Dion 1°03′, Queen Camilla 1°34′.

Sun conjunct Dabih: Reserved, suspicious and mistrustful, loss through friends, responsible public position of trust and authority. [2]

The native is steady, has opportunities to gain responsible positions. Although positive in their attitudes and their approach to their duties, they are reserved and tend to be suspicious. This is more applicable to negative nativities who will encounter obstacles on their road to success. These natives seem to seek ulterior motives, become mistrustful of others and may sustain needless losses. [3]

Allison DuBois 0°44′, Volodymyr Zelenskyy 1°23′

Moon conjunct Dabih: Successful in business but retires under a cloud, favorable for wealth, influential position but scarcely realizes ambitions, trouble through opposite sex, deserved criticism and censure. [2]

The native can find preferment in writings, large projects, government and matters dealing with the public. There could be a tendency towards radicalism with some such natives, and if so, it could engulf them. There is also a tendency towards being of a suspicious nature, mistrustful of others. These natives  can be innovative. [3]

(0°15′ orb): This causes extreme emotional problems. These natives have an extreme emotional chemistry. When this position is poorly aspected by the transiting Sun, these persons will become unstable mentally for two or three days as the aspect becomes exact. It is very difficult to live with a person with this degree, as the mental problems become unbearable at times. There is a restricted energy affecting the balance of their emotional makeup and nervous system. They do become unbalanced and are literally insane for short periods of time. Often they remain secluded as they do not relate very well with the public.

This point is affected adversely with the generation born with Pluto in the sign Leo, an opposition aspect (born 1939 to 1942). The result would be an extreme emotional obsession depending on the circumstances. Revenge, hate, or just self-destructiveness is often the result with this Pluto opposition energy. The individual simply tears down one cycle of destruction only to begin another in an entirely different direction. They generally begin the destruction within themselves first in order that they can feel the affect. They then spread this emotional destructiveness to those they can bring into their cycle – people they are able to victimize easily. They involve themselves in sadistic and masochistic games that ultimately results in more resentment so that the emotionally destructive cycle continues throughout the lifetime.

Even though there is no opposition affect by Pluto in the chart, the individual with this position is in a totally unbalanced emotional state. There is not another position that is more difficult emotionally than this fixed star degree. These natives choose this for their incarnation for the reason that there were many imbalances from previous lives that had not been worked out. The energy allows them to be irresponsible in their emotional reactions as they do not care how others are affected by their emotional outbursts. Those involved with these persons consider them irrational and insane and accept them as they are.

The best therapy for those with this position would be for them to work with others who have the same emotional imbalance, as they themselves are helped through service to others. If they chose not to be of service to others, their own emotional imbalance would become more severe, especially when the transiting Sun aspects their natal degree by conjunction, opposition or square.

Susan Miller 0°30′, Nancy Spungen 1°10′, Phil Spector 1°19′, Joe Exotic 1°36′

Mars conjunct Dabih: Great ambition, energy, high position but danger of reversal, domestic disharmony. [2]

These natives are ambitious, but can be stubborn. They can be successful, gain recognition. There is the possibility of romantic, domestic or family problems. [3]

(0°15′ orb): These natives are concerned with strengthening their calf muscles and legs. They are the persons who would run with weights on their legs and lift weights with their feet and toes. This eventually causes problems with their legs due to the intensity that this is done. The energy is restricted, causing an interruption of blood flow to the legs. The legs should be relaxed for periods of time to allow a smooth flow of energy to return. Continued physical activity would subject the native to shin splinters. [6]

Jupiter conjunct Dabih: Hypocrisy, dishonesty, high legal or ecclesiastical preferment but danger of reversal, domestic disharmony. [2]

Saturn conjunct Dabih: Melancholy, studious, recluse, restless and nervous, writer, accumulates wealth in a miserly fashion, often lives alone but danger of separation and divorce, wrapt up in some great sorrow, long life. [2]

(0°15′ orb): This causes the deterioration of the bone structure at the calf of the left leg. There is a restriction of energy at this point so that calcium is not absorbed in this part of the body. The result is a slight decay in the bone structure from the top of the calf to the bottom of the left leg near the ankle. Malformation occurs where the bone deteriorates so that small cavities appear on the skin surface where the bone has dissolved. The individual will notice a dull ache through the calf of the leg because of the lack of support from the bone structure there. A slight collision of the leg with an object can cause a crack in the bone, even though it would not be severe enough to cause a bruise. These individuals must learn how to heal themselves by working with these energies through spiritual endeavors. A simpler form of this process is biofeedback which can be understood by most people, but it works slower than spiritual healing. [6]

(0°15′ orb): This definitely is a karmic position. This position deals with the individual’s involvement with groups. They are often found working with people with mental problems. They choose to be with groups that deal with those who are retarded, or are mentally afflicted in some way. This could include those having difficulty with speech, hearing, and eyesight. These individuals are excellent at rehabilitating other beings. However, this is an important fixed star position as individuals with this placement have chosen to do this in this life. They are given special gifts so they can work with afflicted persons effectively. Natives of this degree who repudiate their chosen karmic destiny will eventually suffer from the same affliction as those they had promised to help, generally through an accident of some kind. This is a very special position enabling these persons to help other beings so that they can atone for transgressions in a former life. [6]

  1. Moon conjunct Dabih and Dejanira. Very frighteinig what you say.

  2. Why is this star called “the butcher” ??? I cannot find this mars-venus character in the above descriptions but i have understood that it can be a difficult star emotionally and in relation to others…

  3. …maybe mars-saturn-moon or moon-pluto signature ??? I.e. concerning the sado-masochism described above…

  4. I have a client with their Moon conjunct this star and he claims that it is exactly on point, but that the seclusion he must undertake is about every 4-5 months, where he does go insane and to keep from killing people, himself, or causing a huge dramatic event…..he goes camping alone and doesn’t tell anyone, doesn’t take his phone etc. His moon is outside the 15 min orb that the above text refers too. Appears that his mother was also like this.
