Fixed star Izar, Epsilon Boötis, is a binary star located on the waist of the Plowman, Boötes Constellation. Magnitudes 2.37 + 5.12, spectral types K0 II-III + A2 V, colors orange + blue-white.

The traditional and official name Izar is derived from the Arabic إزار ʾizār, a kilt like undergarment.   It has also been called Pulcherrima, which is Latin for Loveliest.

In 1973, the Scottish astronomer and science fiction writer Duncan Lunan claimed to have managed to interpret a message caught in the 1920s by two Norwegian physicists that, according to his theory, came from a probe orbiting the Moon and sent there by the inhabitants of a planet orbiting Epsilon Boötis. The story was even reported in Time magazine.[1]


Izar Astrology

The main component of fixed star Izar has the spectral type K0, indicating the planetary nature of Mars. It is twice as bright as the secondary compent, with the spectral type A2 indicating a Venus nature.

Of very deep meaning to us is the star Izar, ε Boötis. From long before the present, the constellation system was recognized, Epsilon Boötis was revered by ancient Peoples, especially in Africa and South America, as a star from which their ancestors had first come to this planet. Since it is 150 lightyears away, the story is unlikely to say the least. But it is quite uncanny that this binary star’s components are in relationships to each other almost exactly as Sun and Phaethon must have been before the Great Disaster began. It is reasonable to suggest, then, that early astronomers discovered the kinship of the Izar binary to our own former state, and that their findings were announced by the media of the time, not as “This is like what we came from’, but ‘This is where we came from’. We can imagine the popular press doing the same now. The notion certainly took very deep root in us for, while the name Izar is merely Arabic for girdle, its position on the figure, the word is frequently associated with Czar, Shah and other such terms for father-figure to the community.Early western students of astrology confused the name Izar, which can be also be spelled Mizar, the Mirach, the name of β Andromedae, but this is in itself that kind of ‘inspired mistake’ which points again to the theme of Izar as a source of life to us, and a point from which to look forward, as we saw with β Andromedae itself. The result is that those with Izar strong for them do have both the keen interest in our origins, and a protective nature that wants to see us go safely on into our future development as a life species. Ptolemy did not apply himself to Izar, so far as we know, but a Saturn-Venus quality would seem entirely appropriate. [2]

Boötes Constellation

According to Ptolemy the influence of the constellation is like that of Mercury and Saturn, though the star Arcturus is like Mars and Jupiter. It is said to give prosperity from work, strong desires, a tendency to excess, a fondness for rural pursuits, together with some liking for occultism. The Kabalists associate it with the Hebrew letter Teth and the 9th Tarot Trump, “The Hermit”. [3]

  1. It’s strange how ironic this universe can be! I haven’t read about this star in connection with my own chart but found it interesting to see that my natal moon is conjunct Izar by 0°02′ and I have natal Venus conjunct Saturn too! Hmm! ????

  2. My MC is in 1*00′ orb but separating ( actual: Libra 27*17′). Still, it is definitely note worthy as I often almost,always, feels like the mature love in my partnerships- I somehow always see the truth n had to bear the burden to help my partner evolve personally n spiritually. Saturn n Venus= maturing love n being serious of all things related to all universal love themes’ (self-love, loving everyone, loving life, loving the universe, loving all God’s creatures, loving enough to respect self n others,etc.) Obviously, it is NOT the instant all knowing intuition knowledge of Neptune/ Pisces.. unless u do have planets/angles conjunct then it’s another story.. so it does seem to come slow n build slow n even stronger( making you feel most intriguingly unexpected n surprised as the years go by ) making u feel more enriched.. Rich in love as u deepen so much more as one evolves further along that line where u seek the origins. It’s this weird mystery u keep seeking(or your unconscious self calling for it.. ) in life n beyond the senses’ n reading n relating all the life experiences/thoughts/perceptions back to self n the result is wanting to take some actions to help others gain that understanding so too THEY can further themselves in actualization n being complete. But of course it’s not entirely just this that causes my way of thinking; I have sun,moon,mercury,Pluto n yikes north node all conjunct in close proximity(within 5*00′) applying towards This fixed Star on my MC.. Phew* Sorry. It’s overwhelming n pardon my overwh- (stopping here.)

  3. Apologies on commenting about the ‘ come slow, build slow.. ‘ as it was really meant for Arcturus since I had just read up on it..

  4. Delightful story on Epsilon Bootis Jamie. Something a little different than the usual fare. What takes me here to investigate Izar is a configuration between Asteroid Bennu, Uranus, Chiron, and Izar yod. When Uranus made its ingress in Aquarius on Jan 11, 1996.

    Here’s another weird tale: for some reason i kept in my data base two astro charts of the Alien Crab Claw encounter with Lousianna fishermen back in October 1973.. one of these encounters was when the Sun was at 25 deg Libra, only three degrees away from Izar

  5. Izar and Pallas conjunct at the May18 full moon 28♎️ with Haumea 25♎️52. Lifting of the veil, sextile Galactic Centre, with Sedna at the apex, Moon and Earth at the boot, Heliocentric view of course, yesterday’s Full Moon was and is about changes to the Sun.

  6. Is this where the saying; the veil is thinnest at All Hallows, comes from? Sun’s transit over Izar?

  7. Beautiful hummingbird – “Izar is a benevolent star” – seems like depends on what you make of it – i just say hitler (ac) , netanjahu (sun), jim jones , el chapo guzman (midheaven)…
