Nashira Astrology

Fixed star Nashira has the spectral type F0, indicating the planetary nature of Mercury.

NASHIRA. γ Capricorni. Situated in the tail of the Goat. From Al Sa’d al Nashirah, The Fortunate One or Bringer of Good Tidings; or, according to Bullinger, the Record of Cutting Off. According to Ptolemy it is of the nature of Saturn and Jupiter; and, to Simmonite, of Saturn. It causes overcoming by evil, which is turned to success, and gives danger from beasts. [1]

NASHIRA. γ Capricorni. Class FOp. A small star in the tail of the Goat. “The Fortunate Bearer of Good Tidings.” The ability to turn adversity to success, a conservative person, pious, and evilness. [2]

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

Fixed star Nashira rules the front of the right leg 7 inches below the knee. [5]

NOTE: In Fixed Stars and Their Interpretation by Elsbeth Ebertin on page 74, Gamma Capricorni is called “Deneb Algedi on the Back of the Goat, formerly called Nashire I.” But based on the listed degree and the example charts, it is definitely fixed star Deneb Algedi, Delta Capricorni.

Constellation Capricornus

Capricorn 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. [3]

Mars conjunct Nashira (2° orb): 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 effect 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 keywords 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 of 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,
    I have allotments of luck in 21’38 Aquarius,
    triangle with Uranus in Libra 23’01 ..
    As I interpret

  3. My Father has his sun on this star…and he was able to hold positions of trust..even while not being exactly trustworthy. He had amazing luck in his life..having his college and medical school paid for by Grandparents and have the political shelter of a Catholic University. He was blessed with money and respect…most of his life. He drank away his respect eventually..and he has other major problems in his chart…but
    he turned his blinding success into disgrace (Sadalhud 23aqu24) ..causes disgrace if the “fortune” is abused. I have heard that my father was very true and idealistic when he was younger..but being a doctor made his ego..incredibly repulsive, and he loved to flaunt his wealth, and eventually use wealth as power and to buy him worse and worse behavior…

    But his Moon conj Uranus, conj Saturn aligned with Algol on his IC…didn’t really help much with the stability..
