Ophiuchus Constellation [Stellarium]

Fixed star Han, Zeta Ophiuchi, is a single star near the left knee of the Serpent Holder, Ophiuchus Constellation. Magnitude (V) 2.57, spectral type O9.5 V.

The traditional name Han comes from the Chinese state of Han, 韓. The star ζ Ophiuchi itself is called 天市右垣十一, Tiān Shì Yòu Yuán shíyī, which means the Eleventh Star of Right Wall of Heavenly Market Enclosure.


Han Astrology

The spectral class O9.5 suggests a planetary nature of the Moon and, to a lesser extent, Jupiter.

Of the nature of Saturn and Venus. It brings trouble and disgrace. [1]

ζ Ophiuchi. A small bluish-white star. Spectral class 09. This star imparts to its natives fame, high preferment, wealth, honors, and negatively self-created problems, shamelessness, and disgraceful actions. [5]

Han, ζ Ophiuchi, is an unfortunate choice of name since it comes from old political Chinese astrology, nothing to do with our system. Rukba, the Knee, is where it is, but the title has not often been used. With its Saturn-Venus simile, it continues the theme of putting the knowledge to useful purpose and hints at added strength from the proximity of Antares within the same degree. [2]

Han rules the right side of the spine and the center of the right buttock. [3]

Constellation Ophiuchus

According to Ptolemy is like Saturn and moderately like Venus. It is said to give a passionate, blindly good-hearted, wasteful and easily seduced nature, together with little happiness, unseen dangers, enmity, strife and slander. Pliny said that it occasioned much mortality by poisoning. This constellation has also been called Aesculapius and is held to rule medicines. By the Kabalists, it is associated with the Hebrew letter Oin and the 16th Tarot Trump “The Lightning Struck Tower.” [1]

Ophiuchus was noted in classical times as the constellation of those who had the power of discovering healing herbs and skill in curing the bites of poisonous serpents. In a genearthical chart, the constellation denoted prudence and wisdom. [4]

Mercury conjunct Han: The native has a keen mentality, expressive, and somewhat jovial, but generally develops into becoming a private person. Negatively, their problems will be self-created, of an endless nature, even involving legal entanglement. [5]

(2°00′ orb): This is similar to Mercury at Acrab, but it is more painful at this degree. The sciatic nerve slips out of position, and there is a blockage of energy flow to the nerves. A shortage of energy at this point causes a slight crippling at the spine and buttocks. These natives will usually have problems with the sciatic nerve and are unable to squat down to the floor. They cannot get into this position easily as there is a pull on the nerves and spine where they feel sharp pains up the spine. Rubbing oil on the buttock and spine area would be very helpful. [3]

Mars conjunct Han:

The native is energetic, fearless and may be diplomatically ambitious. Shameless. [5]

(4°00′ orb): This is similar to Mars at Acrab, except that the energy at this point is totally ego-oriented. The problems at the Graffias point are, for the most part, brought out through the subconscious. At this degree, Mars is pure ego, and the native actually enjoys conquering situations. They are very aware of what they are doing to others. They enjoy conquering a woman who is having a relationship with a friend. This would also apply to a woman with this position. To them, the enjoyment is in making the conquest, which is a great game for them, and their ego inflates further as they watch the other person become the loser in the game. These are the persons who can complete a task before anyone else and then brag about it so they can keep their egos inflated. They are the individuals who can be found competing in games where targets are used, such as archery, darts, and knife throwing. [3]

Saturn conjunct Han (3°00′ orb): This causes restriction of the nerves, bringing sharp pains through the right side of the spine. This also affects the ego in that they are unable to participate in any type of athletics or similar events in order to build their ego. They generally have a slight limp and cannot walk with an even gait. They do not have good balance or a good aim and enjoy games as an observer or helper rather than as a participant. They simply do not have the ego drive to win. These persons can be found helping those who are participants, such as a batboy in baseball or caddy to a well-known golfer. Thus, they can brag about working for a popular or famous person. This makes them feel less fearful in their own inadequacy. [3]
