Ras Elased Australis, epsilon Leonis, is a single star in the head of the Lion, constellation Leo. Magnitude 2.98. Spectral type G1 II.

Epsilon Leonis is known as Algenubi or Ras Elased Australis. Both names mean “the southern star of the lion’s head”. Australis is Latin for “southern” and Genubi is Arabic for “south”.

With μ, it was Al Ashfār, the Eyebrows, near to which they lie. It marked the 14th ecliptic constellation of Babylonia, Rishu A., the Head of the Lion. The Chinese knew these two stars as Tsze Fe; while ε, individually, was Ta Tsze, the Crown Prince. [7]

Ras Elased Australis Astrology

ALGENUBI. ε Leonis. A yellow star in the Lion’s mouth. Of the nature of Saturn and Mars, and has been called “He who rends.” It gives a bold, bombastic, cruel, heartless, brutish and destructive nature, but artistic appreciation and power of expression. [1]

ALGENUBI. ξ Leonis. A yellow star in the Lion’s mouth. Spectral class G3. Imparts boldness to its natives, daring, bombastic, cruelty, of a destructive nature and with a strong power of expression. [6]

These stars in Lion’s head; ε Leo, Ras Elased Australis, and μ Ras Elased Borealis; are said to indicate those with an appreciation for language and a power of expression, but also those who may be heartless and cruel. [2]

Ras Elased Australis, the southern star in the Head of the Lion, is credited with properties such as conveying higher spiritual gifts of the Logos to those men who are able to conceive them. In primitive natives this fixed star may become a danger if bound up with a poorly placed Saturn or Neptune. Severe psychological depressions are indicated, and possibly even suicide. In conjunction with a strongly placed Mars, the Lion’s Head will make for feverish diseases, and if conjunct with Uranus, dangers of accidents. Bismarck had this fixed star positioned exactly conjunct his Ascendant; this fact and the part played by other configurations gave this chancellor his mental superiority. [3]

Marking the eyebrow region of the Lion the Ras Elased Australis star gives the quality of looking carefully at a situation before forging ahead. [4]

Ras Elased Australis rules the outer edge of the right kidney. [5]

Constellation Leo

Ptolemy makes the following observations: “Of the stars in Leo, two in the head are like Saturn and partly like Mars. The three in the neck are like Saturn, and in some degree like Mercury. . . . Those in the loins . . . Saturn and Venus: those in the thighs resemble Venus, and, in some degree, Mercury.” It is said that the stars in the neck, back and wing all bring trouble, disgrace and sickness affecting the part of the body ruled by the sign, especially if they happen to be in conjunction with the Moon. By the Kabalists, Leo is associated with the Hebrew letter Kaph and the 11th Tarot Trump “Strength.” [1]

In mundane astrology, Leo Constellation is associated with royal events, especially the ascension or death of kings and queens, the election or death of heads of state, assassinations, uprisings and massacres, currency, and the stock exchange, the Vatican and European Union.

Uranus conjunct Ras Elased Australis: This can be quite destructive, as this planet at this point disrupts the spine and affects the muscle on the right side of the 14th vertebra (7th Dorsal) up to the middle and upper back. There are spams at the outer walls of the kidney on the right side that are sporadic and sharp. There can be a burning sensation on the right side of the body in the back. This causes them to be unbalanced in such a way that they can become paranoid about their loved ones and those close to them. They begin to dominate everyone in their attempt to keep control, and it can become a selfish and violent manipulation, even to the point where they do not want their loved ones in their sight. Women with this configuration would become so insecure that they become paranoid about losing their support and security. Diet cannot help here; however, peppermint tea taken daily would be soothing to that area of the body. [5]

10 thoughts on “Fixed Star Ras Elased Australis

  1. Ras Elased Australis conj’s my MC, and Ras Elased Borealis is at the midpoint of my MC-North Node (which corresponds to Madonna’s birthday, the day Elvis died, and the day I saw Yes).

  2. It conjuncts my north node (20º) which trines with MC, Neptune and vertex ….sounds serious!

  3. Hi Jamie,

    I have a very tight orb Chiron & Earth conjunction to this star which a part of my Uranus, Neptune &Vesta on Dheneb Yod apex which goes out to Chiron & Earth and then out to my southnode on Bellatrix for the base.I have spoken to you previously about this Yod however I’m curious what your throughts are to Chiron & Earth conjunct this star? (It is also within orb of Rad Elased Bor. and opposite my Saturn and Sun conjunction on Nashira.) Would the excerpt on Uranus & the spine etc. have any influence? Also do you think because this star has the nature of Saturn that the opposition to my Saturn would cause too much stress even though my Saturn is placed well on Nashira?

    Also, thank you so much for your concise and vast collection of posts on fixed stars! It’s difficult to find astrology sites with such a great database, and I consult your fixed star collection all the time!

  4. HI Jamie. I have the asteroid Karma conjunct Ras Elased Aus, with my venus and the asteroid bearing my husbands name conjunct those on Ras Elased Bor. The description above doesn’t really fit, any ideas? All are sextile my mars, trine my Saturn, and square my Neptune… in the 8th house.

  5. … and now C/2020 F3 NEOWISE show up at Al Genubi, (and Merak) at Perigee, .69 AU, July 23

    NEOWISE fully rectified to Cosmogenesis ‘New Age Trinity’

  6. There’s something in this part of the sky. A shortcut? if I was a hunting mammal, I would head here.
