Dheneb Star Astrology

Fixed star Dheneb is of the nature of Mars and Jupiter. It gives ability to command, liberality, success in war and beneficence. [1]

Dheneb has a typical Martian character giving the ability to command, and success in martial arts. [2]

Deneb Aquilae, Tail of the Eagle, is a Mars-Jupiter star like Altair. The difference in interpretation usually observed is less inclination to glare down one’s underlings, as in that first flush of promotion, a more assured feel for the job, and a better reputation thus gained in whatever office one holds. Negatively there may be a slight lack of effort needed to achieve something that really should be an easy target. [3]

Dheneb star rules three inches below the back of the left knee in the human body. [4]

Constellation Aquila has a similar influence to that of Mars and Jupiter. It is said to give great imagination, strong passions, indomitable will, a dominating character, influence over others, clairvoyance, a keen penetrating mind and ability for chemical research. It has always been associated with the sign Scorpio. [1]

Aquila or the Eagle portends changes in the weather and is indicative of those with a penetrating mind and clairvoyance. Ptolemy says that its stars are of the nature of Mars and Jupiter, but the brightest stars have the spectra of Mars and Venus. [2]

In mundane astrology Aquila rules the U.S.A., space exploration, bombs and missiles.

Sun conjunct Dheneb: These are the persons who have the vitality and inclination to do good work at any job they are assigned. They will literally take work home with them so that they may receive recognition for their efforts. They do make wonderful workers and are especially good when they take their job seriously, and recognition for their good works and achievements has a great meaning for them. It is for this reason that taking work home with them or working weekends does not bother these individuals.

Jupiter conjunct Dheneb: This manifests as achievements. With this placement, the natives are happy-go-lucky business people. They particularly enjoy careers in construction so that they can build extremely large buildings. They are not interested in residential construction of single family homes but rather huge complexes such as shopping malls, large office or apartment buildings. They are extremely capable in this type of career. As far as career is concerned, they are never under stress. But, they do have one problem and that is the inability to complete a project on time. They have a tendency to miscalculate completion dates and seldom complete the construction on the date agreed upon. They simply are not concerned with completing their work on time. Women with this degree are drawn to governmental positions with authority. They are drawn to careers where there is a structure, and without too much variation, so they can climb up from pay scale to pay scale and thus feel secure in their position. This gives them the opportunity to receive a certain amount of recognition. [4]
