Menkalinan Star Astrology

Fixed star Menkalinan is of the nature of Mars and Mercury (high enterprise, combative, destructive. If rising, rash, very obstinate, ruined by headstrong and precipitate conduct. If culminating, changeable in business). It causes ruin, disgrace, and frequently violent death. [1]

Menkalinan is of a Venusian nature, Robson asserts that it causes ruin, disgrace, and frequently, violent death. If so, it would be a result of excess pleasure-seeking. [2]

Menkalinan is in the Head of the Charioteer and is basically of a Jupiter character with a blend of weak influence of Mars and Venus character. Only when really in good aspect is this fixed star rated as a positive acting one. Badly positioned, this star will be most unhelpful. [3]

Great initiative and enthusiasm but caution and objective second thoughts are needed because of impulsiveness and recklessness. [4]

Menkalinan rules the last vertebra at the bottom of the spine (Seventh Lumbar) in the human body. [5]

Constellation Auriga

Auriga is one of the most fortunate constellations in the sky, but may still portend earthquakes if situated unfortunately as regards a solar eclipse. This constellation culminating in a chart presages honors, especially in the field of military and political endeavors. A modern astrologer might add sports whenever ancients mentioned military honors. [2]

According to Ptolemy, the bright stars are like Mars and Mercury. The constellation is said to give self-confidence, interest in social and educational problems. Happiness, but danger of great vicissitudes. The native is fond of country life and may be a teacher or have the upbringing of young people. [1]

5th Arabic Manzil – Al-Haq’ah

Helps the return from a journey, the instruction of scholars, building, and gives health and goodwill.

With Moon: Begin war but do not sow or undertake any good.

Governs frontiers and literature. Good for constructions, all kinds of new projects, labor relations and industry. Industry is the keynote for this mansion, and it favors jobs related to culture and communications, so long as they are done with rigor and creativity.

It also governs executions, murders, sudden death, fortresses, and decapitations, depending upon where it is found in the horoscope. Bad for trading, closing projects, marriage contracts, weddings, and funerals. The fates vary according to one’s actions, as in the previous mansion.

Mars conjunct Uranus conjunct Menkalinan: This point would be very difficult, especially if both planets were on the degree. These persons experience sharp pains all up and down the spine like unharnessed electrical energy. They do not understand what is happening to them, and at times, it disorientates them and they cannot wander around alone. There are ho, fiery flashes that go up through the spine to the head, and the only way to control this is to use cool packs up and down the spine – not cold, just cool. Cool herbs such as peppermint and spearmint can be crushed, mixed and made into an ointment. Vaseline would be helpful as it would help the electrical flow through the spine by regulating the different energies. [5]
