Fixed Star Kaus Borealis Astrology

Fixed star Kaus Borealis is located at the top of the Archer’s bow. Ptolemy states that the stars “on the bow and at the grip of the hand like that of Jupiter and Mars”. Robson interprets this as: High ambition, pride, love of power, grandeur of view, If rising, military honors. If culminating, high ecclesiastical honor, martial preferment, prosperity in business. [1]

The Bow of the Archer has a Jupiter-Mars nature and is specially credited with promoting mental stimuli, enterprise and a sense of justice. Natives who are influenced by this star are promoters of idealistic and humane ideas if this fixed star is conjunct Ascendant, Midheaven, Sun, Moon or Jupiter. [2]

Kaus Borealis, λ Sagittarii, is a hybrid of Arabic and Latin, coming from Al Qaus Al Shamali, the Northern (star in the) Bow. At some earlier time, this and several others stars near it were associated with keeping Ostriches, of which there seemed to be a herd in this part of the sky (perhaps on the ground too), and the names Al Rais Al Na’ ams or Al Thalimain still turn up in some literature. But the Archer and his bow are now firmly established, so we stick with Kaus Borealis for our purposes here. Ptolemy does not appear to have included this star, having so many to chose from in this Constellation, but if he had then he could well have classed it as a Mercury-Mars type. It does conveys a sense of strength and flexibility combined and this often shows up in the horoscopes of people who can put great force behind their reasoning, yet be somewhat more flexible than those described under Polis. [4]

Said to have been associated with the great goddess Istar. [3]

Constellation Sagittarius

Sagittarius was the House of Jupiter, that planet having appeared here at the Creation, although this honor was shared by Aquarius and Leo. Nor did Jupiter monopolize its possession, for it also was the domicile of Diana. Thus the constellation was known as Dianae Sidus. It inclined to fruitfulness, a character assigned to it as far back as the Babylonian inscriptions; and was a fortunate sign. Yellow was the color attributed to it, or the peculiar green sanguine. [5]

It is a fortunate and fruitful constellation indicating events pertaining to kings or a large portion of mankind. Ptolemy states: “The stars at the point of the arrow have an effect like that of Mars and the Moon; those on the bow and at the grip of the hand like that of Jupiter and Mars; the cluster in the forehead like that of the Sun and Mars; those in the cloak and in the back resemble Jupiter, and to a lesser degree like Mercury; the stars in the feet have a nature akin to that of Jupiter and Saturn; and the quadrangle upon the tail like Venus, and to a lesser degree like Saturn.” [3]

  1. This star is on the MC of the Paradise California incorporation chart..and on the days of the destructive fire..Saturn was transiting perfectly the MC…while Pluto (deadly) conj Vesta (fire) was in the 10th house of the Paradise Chart.
    Interesting the chart seems to say that the Government (Saturn)..was the head of the archer…sending energy weapon fire…down on Paradise..causing deadly fire…where people were burned in their cars..while nearby trees on both sides of said car…were unburned…hmmmm..

      • I have a few planets sitting in this section of the sky if you want to take a look. Dec.15th 1988,12:53 pm, Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada.


      • Oh I just saw your reply.. Paradise California Nov 27 1979 and I muscle tested 3:25 pm for when this was incorporated. Then the fire was Nov 11th/12th 2018..but check wiki..then the synnastry between these charts shows…the trouble.

        The Wikipedia article is the “Camp Fire” says the fire started on the 8th..but Paradise was suddenly hit with fire at the same time that the city water was turned off. (the time that the water was turned off..would be a good chart)..

  2. this star usually makes some humorous people but that are also very mocking in a certain way, not sure if i like that more than i dislike it

  3. Ha ha I have this conjunct my Moon and I lived on an Ostrich ranch!
    I tend to mimic more than mock. 😉

    • Hi Lou. I still get amazed by things like this even though they happen so often. It’s beautiful really.
