Microscopium Constellation Meaning

Microscopium Constellation [Stellarium]

Constellation Microscopium in the southern celestial hemisphere was formed by Nicolas Louis de Lacaille in 1752. It represents a microscope, which he described as “consisting of a tube above a square box.” [1]

Microscopium spans 10 degrees of the zodiac Sign Aquarius. But in the sky, it can be seen beneath the forelegs of the zodiacal constellation Capricornus. It borders Piscis Austrinus and Grus to the east, Sagittarius to the west, Indus to the south, and Telescopium to the southwest.

Gamma Microscopii, with a magnitude of 4.68, is the brightest star in the constellation. It depicts the eyepiece of the microscope.

  1. Comet Leonard C/2021 A1, discovered January 3, 2021, reaches perihelion January 3, 2022.

    Gamma Microscopium, the eyepiece
    comet Leonard perihelion with July 24, 2023 transit. Note the full One sign precession of the Mean Node. Venus Rx, and Urania, Poseidon and Varuna if you wish to further study the proposed dissolution of toxic Fukishima.

    that lovely gamma eyepiece that winks, Periwinkle.
    this thread describes the genesis of the astrological C/2021A1 Leonard, how it begins with the astrology of mass formation, and ends with the antipode Hunga Tonga–Hunga Haʻapai eruption.

    The maturity of the storied Comet, of any sort, making its way around the Sun, but disturbed enough to disintegrate in the asteroid belt. Further reading at ark-jadczyk.blogspot.com/2023/07/the-cosmic-context-of-greek-philosophy.html

    • Laura Knight-Jadczyk, the author of the three part article, mentions Chelyabinsk meteor as having a personal connection, February 13, 2013, the date her book was published. Which I find astonishing, because we did the Chelyabinsk Meteor blast astrology at Saturn sextile Pluto on May 3rd this year, also with a personal connection.


      As above, so below, find the universe within. Gamma Microscopium in a stellium between progressed Moon and progressed Saturn. This might be one of the better occurrences if you wish to question time travel.

  2. Home of natal Chiron. It doesn’t progress much or is that because it is natally retro?

    Any hoot, this microscopium setup is strange. I am under microscope experience. Like I watching my physical self. Only thing I ever heard about this is when people die and come back some claim they were looking down on themselves. I googled it and there is a condition called depersonalization. Oh no oh no I have a condition. But I remember having this feeling before, but that is always like I am living in a painting feeling. So this is a different take on feeling detached and just my experience of this energy.

    Also have sphinx, pholus, Damocles, and Lachesis conjuncting Chiron and QB1. Amusing tellers to look at life experiences.
