Sadalmelik Astrology

Fixed star Sadalmelik is of the nature of Saturn and Mercury. It causes persecution, lawsuits, extreme and sudden destruction and the death penalty. [1]

α Aquarii. A yellow star on the right shoulder of Aquarius. Spectral class G. A supergiant star. Scandalous actions by the native, a tendency to lie, subject to lawsuits, persecution, sudden violence, honors and preferment, acquisitive and conservative. [5]

Of the solar spectra, Sadalmelik is the “lucky one of the king(dom)”, but can portend danger and cause persecution and even death. [2]

Sa’ad Al Malik, α Aquarii, but in fact now marginally less bright than β, is another Saturn-Mercury type, like Sadalsuud, and with very similar meaning for us. Perhaps it is rightly now the less bright of the two, in these days when good fortune for kings is expected to be no more important, at best, than the same for everyone else. Yes, it is an indicator of the most brilliant success and favor for those in authority, and a sign that they will put it to good use if they have it well aspected.

But any Saturn-Mercury simile is surely a note of warning for any would abuse good fortune or be miserly about sharing it, a warning reiterated by the proximity of the Archangel star Fomalhaut only 24’of arc later in longitude. People doing well in high places will do yet better to remember that they are being watched from places higher still, watchers who no doubt have an unbiased interest in the well-being of everyone, king and commoner alike, in the case of the advance of the entire human species and the planet it dwells upon.

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. [3]

Sadalmelik star rules the heel of the right foot in the human body. [4]

Constellation Aquarius

Ptolemy makes the following observations: “The stars in the shoulders of Aquarius operate like Saturn and Mercury; those in the left hand and in the face do the same: those in the thighs have an influence more consonant with that of Mercury, and in a less degree with that of Saturn: those in the stream of water have power similar to that of Saturn, and moderately to that of Jupiter.” By the Kabalists Aquarius is associated with the Hebrew letter Nun and the 14th Tarot Trump “Temperance,” over which virtue the constellation appears to have some rule. The beauty of Ganymedes and his flight through the air also link it to the ideas of personal charm and aviation with which it is certainly connected. [1]

The constellation of Aquarius is traditionally the place of good fortune. It indicates full-flowing rivers and springs and portends a sufficient amount of water for agricultural requirements. When in mutatine rising (Sun in 12th house conjunct Ascendant) or in vespertine setting (Sun in the 7th house conjunct Descendant) aspect to the Sun the indication is for rains (but not floods). In medieval astrology Saturn in the constellation of Aquarius meant that mankind was completely dominated by this planet. While none of the named stars are of the Saturnian spectra, the house of Saturn can be expected to exert its influence throughout the constellation. [2]

Gains made by some of these natives might not be of a lasting nature, and although such natives will be industrious, they will encounter difficulties from time to time. They should try to avoid any legal involvements which could prove costly to some such natives while others will gain considerable prestige. Such natives can expect to make some gains working for, or in conjunction with large corporations. [5]

This is a conjunction for fame, but whether or not the native can handle it is another matter. The native will find high preferment, will have high enterprise, be very energetic and can be quite outspoken, even difficult if the conjunction is to a negative Mars. [5]

This causes a distortion of the ego. These persons delude themselves into believing they are something they are not. They cannot differentiate between illusion and reality. They can literally be the wanderers, roaming over the earth. They are generally confined to institutions early in life as their relatives do not know what to do with them. They continually wander without caring whether or not they have anything to eat or that they may be injured in some way. This is a very heavy karmic position. In a former life, they were harsh and mistreated others who were mentally retarded. They were cruel and took advantage of those who were unable to take care of themselves. So in this life they are at the mercy of everyone, and are subject to the cruelty of those who are frustrated over their mental imbalances. [4]

There can be some criticism expected, but this will not affect their popularity. Negative nativities must beware of legal difficulties or involvements from which they would emerge the loser. [5]

  1. It may also, in the current of good will turning the tables, place the power and resources in the hands of the truly noble who have honoured their quest and earned the rite of passage to be such, it is best to not allow ones conscious gemini logic to be part of thinking it “knows this” rather using the mercurian virgo depths of pure logic, to remain compassionate and not be involved in any way shape or form of ones own, not even thinking it, as this will incure a karmic responsibility in how this plays out, because it constitutes judgement and the wishing of ill will, for which there is always a “payment” due to its underhanded spite.

    • It is the passage of the sun by this fixed star I understand ancient astrongers referred to as the “ides of March” the ideas or imaginings during the dreaming thus dreamtime of Pisces, before Mars is in charge again, passionate in love and hungry to be grateful for good nourishment or angry and hungry for war, between ones own emotional & mental mindset and the new conscious expression of it, either just is love or just isnt.

      • In case my strange perception and link with the ancients & alchemy (Jupiter conjunct IC as the focal point of a yod with my Mercury in 9th house Cancer and my Pluto in 10th house Virgo opposite Chiron in Pisces) transforming ones mundaness of mind, into a flow of the golden ray of love.

  2. So I have Saturn at the penultimate degree of Capricorn in 3rd house, it is the 22nd Feb and I am offering communication, on what I am responsible and a learned authority on (10th house) which is of course and only ever can be, myself and my heartfelt calling 😉

    • Btw, my Saturn is also the focal point of a yod with my Cancer Sun and my 10th house north
      Node, thats 2 yods crossing over each other on diagonals, forming like a “w” or an upside down crown, must be Cassiopia lol!

  3. Interesting Nashira and saturn-mercury is mentioned here with this star. I have Sun with Saturn on nashira and Mercury on this star.
