Princeps Astrology

Fixed star Princeps has the spectral type G8, indicating the planetary nature of the Sun.

PRINCEPS. δ Boötis. A pale yellow star situated in the spear-shaft of Boötis. Of the nature of Mercury and Saturn. It gives a keen studious and profound mind with the ability for research. [3]

TSIEH KUNG. δ Boötis. A yellow giant star. Spectral class G4, 116 light years distant. This star gives the native a keen mentality, resourceful, somewhat of a fearful nature, conservative, studious. [4]

Princeps is another marker of our capacity to protect and be protected, but with a good hint of our role as Regent princes, and of the Crown that is ours for doing the job well. [5]

Princeps rules four inches below the navel. [6]

Constellation Boötes

According to Ptolemy the influence of the constellation is like that of Mercury and Saturn, though the star Arcturus is like Mars and Jupiter. It is said to give prosperity from work, strong desires, a tendency to excess, a fondness for rural pursuits, together with some liking for occultism. The Kabalists associate it with the Hebrew letter Teth and the 9th Tarot Trump, “The Hermit”. [3]

Mercury conjunct Princeps: These natives are endowed with penetrating minds, this conjunction is good for gain. The native can be full of discontent, almost fearful, created by circumstances and resulting in situations that could create legal problems, and in some cases imprisonment. [4]

(1°00′ orb): These persons have an extremely keen and sensitive response to everything around them. They communicate on the extra-sensory level, and have those “gut” feelings that dominate their existence. They never make a mistake when following their feelings, and are usually in touch with these feelings even though they do not realize it. They can perceive and judge situations quickly when it is necessary to do so. No matter what information they wish to obtain, they know just how to locate the information they need. The one drawback here is that they are unable to explain just how they were able to get the information or material. It would do well for them to have a partner who can log exactly the method they used to obtain the information or material. These individuals would make excellent employees for research or investigation agencies, as they would enjoy that type of work. [6]

(0°30′ orb): This planet distorts the sexuality of the person. They can be over-sexed or under-sexed depending on what planets aspect this point. This can sometimes be quite destructive as they are very much obsessed with sex for the sake of sex. These persons use objects to excite themselves in many different ways, causing many injuries to themselves as they do not know when to stop. They are obsessed with the genital area even though they may not have an intimate relationship with anyone. This affects both men and women, and their obsession would bring difficulties with others who are close to them. This is a karmic position, for in a prior life, they abused others, and now they are abusing themselves. [6]

  1. Why am I not surprised, I was researching this Star, googled it and your page was on the top. Someday people will realize that the heavens influence our life. Take care Jamie, you are the best!!

  2. Venus conjunct princeps, opposite moon in Taurus conjunct sedna.

    Moon is the apex of a tight yod between Mercury & Pluto in libra and Neptune in sag. Makes venus the boomerang yod

    All confusing to piece together

    • Sure is Richy, Just take it step by step when working on a yod. Start at fully understanding your Mercury Pluto conjunction then the sextile. End up finally at Venus which is where you express all those intense emotions. How you love yourself and others.

    • That’s an interesting one Melissa. I wold expect very caring and loyal and, given the description for Mars perhaps some kinkiness, not sure about that though. Would be good for you to come back at some stage and give some feedback.

      • Thanks for the input. Caring and loyal, yes. Kinkiness, not so, perhaps because of my generation. I was born 9/10/1946 at 9:20 a.m. in Ashtabula, Ohio. Been married six times so I do have trouble maintaining a relationship. Guess I was born too independent. Have a great day.

  3. This must be my sun star, as my sun in Scorpio is just about in orb to this star. Izar seems to be out of orb. I was starting to think that I didn’t have a sun star. With the rate of precession, it makes my sun approx 1.44 degrees Scorpio.

    • I’m very much into research – that’s why I usually go to bed late! I’m often up till late doing any kind of research that interests me. I’m also very protective – I don’t know if this star means that the individual is protective or/and protected. I’m protective over family, friends and animals. I would say that I’m studious, as I love learning and absorbing new knowledge. I have a need for mental stimulation. I haven’t got the patience to hang about in the company of a person who hasn’t got much to say. I think this star could also mean that the Princeps individual loves other people with a profound and interesting/knowledgeable mind. Like attracts like.

    • Yes this star is within orb. To correct for precession you just need to add 0°10′ to your planets.

  4. I have a peregrine Mars conjunct Princeps and sex is a form of emotional and spiritual intimacy with another in my eyes. The above description reminds me of a scene from the exorcist movie, it does not seem to be a description that I can relate to. Maybe sex is a symbolism, possibly for another meaning?

    • Good to hear from you about this interpretation. I’m sure other with Mars hear will welcome it too. The more comments the better because it is rare that authors actually have these conjunctions themselves.

  5. Hi pablo then maybe you want a deep transformation of the world and play a leading role with that. Maybe….

  6. Pedro – This star seems to be good for leaders but with hints to plutocratic, manipulative and hidden agenda behaviour (Clinton, Putin, Noriega). Together with pluto at your midheaven you have to be careful not to misuse political power i would say…

  7. Is there any particular influence of Pluto conjunct Princeps? There’s nothing above for Pluto, just celebs. Thanks

    • Hi Russell. I have included all the planetary conjunction that have been written about. I am adding celebrities to help someone in the future add more interpretations, or me if I have time.
