The Sun joins Mira on April 21

Fixed star Mira, Omicron Ceti, is a 3.0 magnitude variable binary red giant star located in the neck of the Whale or Sea Monster, Cetus Constellation.

Although known in ancient China, Babylon or Greece, Johannes Hevelius gave it the name Mira in 1638, Latin for wonderful or astonishing.


Mira Astrology

STELLA MIRA. ο Ceti. The ‘wonderful star’. Color spectral M6, orange-red. It is the show object in the heavens as a variable of long period. It changes its magnitude from 1.7 to 9.6 in 332 days. The last  maximum recorded was the 1st of December 1897 when it was a magnitude of about 3.0. Its maximum magnitude is from 1.7 to 5.0 and its minimum from 8 to 9.5. It is generally at its brightest for about 2 weeks. This star imparts to its natives success, materialism, notoriety, self destruction, the ability to conquer, enduring to the end, melancholy, boldness, demon power. The influence of Mira would be at its greatest when it is at maximum magnitude, once every 332 days. [1]

Mira, Omicron Ceti. Mira stands for Stella Mira, the “marvelous star” in the Tail of the Whale. It is a double star, given this name because of its changing lights, which go from 2 to 10 in variation of light in 332 days. Its nature corresponds to Saturn and Jupiter. Connected well and with a well-placed Saturn, and otherwise well aligned, it means prudence, perseverance, versatility, progressive spirit and endurance in solving difficult problems. This fixed star in unhelpful connections will bring as results failures, fiascoes and enmity, especially with Saturn transits; when linked with the Moon, melancholy will then appear. Linked with Mercury, it will mean a lessening of spiritual forces. In critical situations, suicide is indicated. [2]

Fixed Star Mira

Stella Mira, Wonderous Star, and Collum cet, Neck of the Whale, are alternative titles for ο Ceti. The first name comes from its extraordinary variability in brightness, from visible magnitude 1.7, by far the brightest in Cetus at certain times, to 9.5, needing a telescope to see it at all. The period of variability is about 330 days. Its proximity to Mirach (β Andromedae) does give us now a hint of the Sea Monster, with more than a hint that the monster was heading for trouble rather than a meal. A whale’s neck contains its remarkable spouting organ, another feature which signals inadvertently its presence to the hunters. Seen in another way, the whale looks very impressive, as does this star, even terrifying, but is in fact a gentle creature, and quite vulnerable in modern times. The Monster, too, is really all size, noise and puff when the chips are down as we shall see when we tell the story of Andromeda. Ptolemy did not classify this star, but Mars-Saturn, a gun with the safety-catch stuck, fits well. The well-aspected man will avoid fighting where Taurean peace will do him better service. Others may find they have rushed in needlessly and without a weapon any better than “sound and fury”. [3]

Constellation Cetus

According to Ptolemy this constellation is like Saturn. It is said to cause laziness and idleness, but to confer an emotional and charitable nature, with the ability to command, especially in war. Makes one amiable, prudent, happy by sea and land, and helps to recover lost goods. [4]
