Ursa Minor Constellation [Stellarium]

The Sun joins Polaris on June 19

Fixed star Polaris, Alpha Ursae Minoris, is a 2.0 magnitude multiple star located at the tip of the tail of the Little Bear, Ursa Minor Constellation. Although appearing to the naked eye as a single point of light, Polaris is a triple star system, composed of the primary, a yellow supergiant designated Polaris Aa, in orbit with a smaller companion, Polaris Ab; the pair is in a wider orbit with Polaris B. α UMi A Spectral type F7Ib.

The modern name Polaris comes from the Latin word for near the pole. The ancient name Cynosūra comes from the Greek word κυνόσουρα which means the dog’s tail. It is very close to the north celestial pole, making it the current northern pole star.

Polaris Astrology

The spectral class F7 suggests a planetary nature of Mercury and to a lesser extent Sun.

Polaris is of the nature of Saturn and Venus. It causes much sickness, trouble, loss of fortune, disgrace and great affliction, and may give legacies and inheritances attended by much evil. [1]

The Pole Star is the main star of the small Bear situated on the Tail, has a Saturn nature, combined with qualities of the Sun and Venus. It might seem strange to include this fixed star here, as its latitude is about 60° and therefore placed far outside of the ecliptic in which the planets move. Measured on the ecliptic, it is situated closely conjunct with Alpha Orionis, Betelgeuse, the main star of Orion. [3]

α Ursae Minoris. A double star, spectral class F8, yellow and white, in the tail of the Bear. This star imparts to its natives’ many problems, illness, romantic, domestic, and other losses. Native continually strives to get ahead, and make gains. Native is shameless and can be of a revolting character, subject to tragedies and chronic, difficult-to-diagnose or possibly serious illness. A continual delaying action plagues some of these natives. Recognition comes late. [6]

The Chinese considered the Pole Star as “the great honorable Lord of the Heavens.” In a relevant position in the natal chart, it gives spiritual powers to the bearer, who will be highly respected. The Pole Star serves as a guide and indicator. If it is conjunction planets in the angles, the native will have a good sense of discretion and is able to follow his or her instincts. The native clearly recognizes his or her aims and will pursue and achieve them. [3]

Polaris, α Ursa Minoris, the Pole Star, is not as bright as we may think, It is still easy to find by following up a line through the lower and upper stars at the end of the pan part of the Dipper. Ptolemy gives it a Saturn-Venus rating, entirely right for the star which serves so well to guide us in our wanderings, and that is just what it tells us about people when we find it strong on their horoscopes. According to its aspects, they are excellent or not so good at receiving and giving guidance but give it they always will, and to any and all who will listen. [4]

Polaris rules the pancreas. [5]

Constellation Ursa Minor

According to Ptolemy the bright stars are like Saturn and in some degree like Venus. It is said to give indifference and improvidence of spirit, and to lead to many troubles. By the Kabalists it is associated with the Hebrew letter Tau and the 21st Tarot Trump “The Universe.” [1]

Astrologically both Bears were said to presage an evil influence. They are particularly injurious as regards to the affairs of nations and kings. [2]

  1. Hello Jamie:
    Your blog/site has the most advanced features among similar blogs. Thank you. I am now very scared of Polaris. One of my friend’s natal planets is at 28-29 degrees Gemini. I am very CONCERNED for her.

    If you had Jupiter in one of your important houses 1st /2nd /6th for career and work, what would you do?

    What seeds would you sow? I am telling friends and family to read your posts and go on interviews.

    How many interviews/tasks should one schedule for good days like 26th or the 29th of this month if they have planets in Virgo?

    Will many dilute the power?

    I am requesting advice for a strategy. I would be very very grateful if you could please shed some light.

    • You really need to find the exact degree of the planet and take into account precession correction because there are 3 stars near each other in this region.

      I don’t use houses, only the cardinal point like AC and MC.

      For strategy, see your yearly and monthly horoscope. Follow the links to transits and moon phases and you can ask a question on those links if you need.

  2. I just learned of Polaris conj my AC 29 degrees 24 min Gemini, along with Betelgeuse of course and Menkalinan. I am not familiar with Polaris energies in relation to my AC. Any impressions are greatly appreciated!

  3. Hi I am desperate to know my fixed star issues, I am not sure if I am polaris or andromeda. I was born april 18 1970 at 730am 1 w50 52 n30

  4. Hi Jamie. I have this conjunct my MC 28.34 please tell me how this might play out, thanks very much. Leas

    • Hi Mans. IC is Imum Coeli, Latin for ‘bottom of the sky’. It is at the bottom of your chart opposite the Midheaven. It represents your roots, history, home and family, ancestors, repressed memories, genetic memory, and past incarnations.

      • Thanks for the explanation,I found no information in this article about Polaris in conjunction with Imum Coeli how it manifests?

        • I add every interpretation I can find. For the rest, I add celebrities so one day someone else can work it all out.
