Menkalinan Astrology

Fixed star Menkalinan has the spectral type A1, indicating a pure Venus planetary nature.

Anonymous (379 AD) said Menkalinina has a Jupiter-Saturn nature. [6] Robson said Mars and Mercury. Rigor said Class KO which is like Mars. Ebertin said Jupiter with a blend of weak Mars and Venus.

MENKALINAN. β Aurigae. A bright yellow star situated on the right shoulder of Auriga. From Al Mankib dhi’l Inan, the Shoulder of the Rein-holder. Of the nature of Mars and Mercury. 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]

MENKALINANA β Aurigae. A yellow star in the right shoulder of Aurigae. “The Shoulder of the Rein Holder.” Class KO. The native is energetic, combative, can be destructive, very obstinate, headstrong. Of a changeable nature. NOTE: This star when aspected to negative nativities creates turbulence, ruinous actions, disgrace. When the nativity is well aspected, it can bring the native some degree of success. The stars basic effects are covered by Al Hecka, Polaris and Betelgeuse. [7]

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]

Fixed star Menkalinan rules the last vertebra at the bottom of the spine (Seventh Lumbar). [5]

Constellation Auriga

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 (changes of circumstances effecting one’s life). The native is fond of country life and may be a teacher or have the upbringing of young people. By the Kabalists Auriga is associated with the Hebrew letter Samech and the 15th Tarot Trump “The Devil”. [1]

Auriga is one of the most fortunate constellations in the sky, but may still portend earthquakes if situated unfortunately as regards a solar eclipse. [2]

Mars and 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]
