Nashira Star Astrology

Fixed star Nashira is of the nature of Saturn and Jupiter. It causes overcoming by evil, which is turned to success, and gives danger from beasts. [1]

The star Nashira presages the bringing of good tidings. In medieval times this star was dubbed “the fortunate one”. [2]

Nashira has a Saturn influence made good by added Jupiter influence. Depending upon its position in the cosmogram, it will bring a life full of change. According to Arabic tradition, Nashira will make a native become a legal adviser or counselor, and gives such a person the ability to hold a position of trust. This fixed star makes for integrity and justice and gives knowledge of man. Therefore, we see here a refining Saturn influence, this will be achieved if the radical Saturn is well placed. It is interesting that Nashira is to be found in three birth charts of present day atomic physicists. [3]

Nashira, γ Capricorni, is from the Arabic Al Sa’ad Al Nashirah, The Bearer of Good News, and is one of those rare stars reckoned as ‘good’, even by the traditional astrologers. They saw it rightly as an indicator of social popularity and political success for the individual blessed with it on the chart.

Nashira and Sadalsuud  were the focal center of a very good area of the sky which was all about good rulers and successful sheikdoms, Saturn-Jupiter, and good things happened for their people, Saturn-Mercury. And they carried this benefic area onto include the stars Sadalmelik, Good or Lucky King, α Aquarii, and the mighty star of Archangel Gabriel, Fomalhaut, Mouth of the Fish, α Piscis Australis, with its reminiscence of that earlier star Nunki, Edict from the Sea, or freely interpreted, Word of God. [4]

Nashira rules the front of the right leg 7 inches below the knee in the human body. [5]

Constellation Capricornus has a great influence over human affairs portending major changes in such areas as climate and political customs. Along with the sign, the constellation is also noted as the “Mansion of Kings”. Unfavorably situated with regards to lunar eclipses, it indicated major storms, especially at sea. [2]

Nashira Star Conjunctions

Mars conjunct Nashira: Similar to Mars at the fixed star Castra. This position affects the health. This point causes damage to the bone structure of the right leg. There is pressure at this point that also brings about a chemical change which dissolves the bone, thus causing a ripple affect on the bone structure through the loss of calcium. Later in life, the leg can be shortened somewhat; however, the real problem to the individual is the hot, flashing pain they experience when walking. The pain is sporadic and directly related to the anxieties of the person. Impatience and anxiety are key words here. The high energy factor at this point can not only affect the bone structure, but also the muscle tissue next to the bone. They can become quite impatient and irrational because of the pain they experience, so that the head is affected. Sharp pains can be felt from the leg to the head. Temper tantrums and irrational behavior is often the result, along with shouting and hostility towards others.

These individuals need to apply cool packs to the leg four times per day. Cool teas, such as spearmint and peppermint should be consumed, as well as cool packs consisting of these herbs. Parsley should be taken daily as it will help soothe the area. The diet must include calcium, or calcium taken in small doses every day. Biofeedback would be an excellent therapy for these natives as it will help slow the deterioration of the bone structure through the mental process. Stressful pain is often felt by these natives by the time they reach the age for thirty-five. [5]

  1. I have Sun conjunct Saturn on this star trine Jupiter. Would this bring out the more positive influences or does Saturn restrict it?

    • Hi Michelle, good question. I would think that because the star has a Saturn Jupiter nature, Saturn would do well here, especially trine Jupiter. More the business person, statesman, politician, educator, traveler, wise mentor.

  2. Hello Michael,
