The Sun joins Procyon on July 18

Fixed star Procyon, Alpha Canis Minoris, is a bright white star with a faint yellow tinge in the body of the Lesser Dog, Canis Minor Constellation. The traditional name Procyon comes from the Greek word προκύον (prokyon), which means before the dog, since it precedes the “Dog Star” Sirius as it travels across the sky due to Earth’s rotation.

Procyon Star Astrology

Fixed star Procyon is of the nature of Mercury and Mars. It gives activity, violence, sudden and violent malevolence, sudden preferment by exertion, elevation ending in disaster, danger of dog bites and hydrophobia, and makes its natives petulant, saucy, giddy, weak-natured, timid, unfortunate, proud, easily angered, careless and violent. Two cases are on record of death or injury by dog bite in which Procyon and Sirius are involved.

Agrippa1531 Canisminor.png  Procyon is one of the 15 Behenian Fixed Stars. Its image is a cock, or three little maids. It gives the favor of the gods, spirits and men, power against witchcraft, and preserves the health. Rules the stone Achates, flowers of marigold, pennyroyal. [3]

Procyon is a very fortunate star; known to the Mesopotamians as ‘The Star of the Crossing of the Water – Dog’, as it lies near their River of Heaven, the Milky Way. Procyon foretold wealth and renown, and in all astrology has been much regarded, giving ‘Everlasting of the Right, and Good Effect’. Procyon has a Mars-Mercury nature and therefore makes people hasty, jealous, pig-headed. But it also confers will-power and ability to put thoughts and plans into action. According to tradition there is also a tendency to a hot temper and impudence. Rise and success are found with it, but fall from high position later, is indicated. Enterprises created in haste therefore do not last. People who “want to go through the wall with their head” only cause injury to themselves. Procyon gives drive and a good sharp mind. Linked with positive stellar bodies, success is made greater, but the native, in order to avoid a fiasco, has always to take care not to be imprudent. Especially dangerous is Procyon configured with Mars and Pluto. With the Sun, a valiant demeanor is indicated. [4]

Procyon star rules just below the left eye in the human body. [5]

  1. I have found this star Procyon often to be conjunct one of the stars in horoscopes of men who are homosexual. Do you know what stars suggest homosexuality? I don’t know if the stars of old ever suggested female bisexuality, etc. Have you found any stars that suggest sexual preference. thanks

  2. Alcyone might figure. I’m busy casting charts where the sexual problems are highlighted. But I still find Procyon prominent in homosexuality. Venus square Saturn often is figured as well. or Venus opposition Saturn or Mars as well. But nothing for Lesbians. thanks
