Fixed star Schedir, Alpha Cassiopeiae, is a 2.2 magnitude pale rose star on the left breast of the Ethiopian Queen, Cassiopeia Constellation. The traditional name Schedir comes from the Arabic word صدر (şadr) which means breast. Ulug Beg named the star الـ ذات الكرسي (Al Dhāt al Kursiyy) which means The Lady in The Chair.


Schedir Astrology

Fixed star Schedir, α Cassiopeia, is a giant star of spectral class KO, with bright line spectra. This is a multiple and slightly variable star. The companion star reduces the adverse effectiveness of the main star. The irregularly variable period is about 79 days. The companion star is blue.

This star will generally be used for positive negativities. The star imparts to its natives sorrows in love, good tempered, fame through help of superiors, demon power, mystical preference, outwardly serious but likes the good life. [5]

Schedir is the main star of Alpha Cassiopeia, and has a Saturn nature, lessened by Venus. (slovenly, very immoral, shameless, revolting, mean, sorrows in love. If rising, good-tempered, healthy, gain by industry and marriage. If culminating, improved health, fame by help of superiors.)

This fixed star incorporates serious demeanor with joi se vivre. Should good living transgress reasonable limits the results will be disadvantageous. The Arab name Sader means “bosom of Cassiopeia”. This star is not really considered unlucky, but a certain amount of demonic power seems to be ascribed to it, critical results must be ascribed to Hamal which is only 8′ distant. [1]

Schedir in most spellings is a mishandling of the emphatic Arabic S in Al Sadr, the Breast. It lies at the more acute apex of a large W in the sky which represents the Queen on her throne. There is no Ptolemaic classification for any of her stars, surprising for such a clearly visible figure, but this may be because of Schedir’s near-conjunction with Hamal of Aries. The Queen’s capacity for disastrous bombast suggests the same Mars-Saturn simile we find with Hamal, save for the generous gratitude she showed then to Perseus, so Mars-Jupiter seems the best likeness. The man or woman with this star strong may have great qualities to rule over others, but should beware of letting it go to his/her head. [2]

The ancients believed that Schedir was a signification of makers of jewelry and those who earn their livelihood from the arts, especially as fine craftsmen. [3]

Cassiopeia is of the nature of Saturn and Venus. It is said to give haughtiness, boastfulness and exaggerated pride, but at the same time the power of commanding respect. [4]

  1. Hi Jamie. I’m enjoying your posts lately. This one starts out with a big typo, though. It should read:
    “The fixed star Schedir, at 7 degrees TAURUS in the Zodiac…” not Scorpio.
    Thanks for all the hard work.
