Scheat Astrology

Fixed star Scheat has the spectral type M2.5, which indicates the planetary nature of Saturn.

According to Ptolemy it is of the nature of Mars and Mercury; to Simmonite, of Saturn; to other authors, of Saturn and Mercury; and, to Alvidas, of Neptune in square to Saturn or Mars. It causes extreme misfortune, murder, suicide, and drowning. [1]

This star imparts to its natives’ stubbornness, one who can be headstrong of a combative nature. The native gains lose friends and acquaintances, may be unfortunate, of a changeable, almost unpredictable nature, has high enterprise, and may be subject to violence. May become of a controversial nature. Fantasizes. [6]

Scheat is an especially unfortunate star regarding the sea. It was said to indicate danger from that element in the form of tidal waves or violent storms. [2]

Scheat, the Shoulder of Pegasus, is a fixed star of accentuated Saturnian character. Tied up with a malefic, this could lead the native to lose his life in catastrophes such as floods, shipwrecks, mining accidents, airplane accidents or maybe by suicide. In a mundane chart, with transiting MC or Asc in conjunction, an accident or catastrophe may happen. The first atomic explosion, July 16, 1945, saw Scheat conjunct transiting MC and semisquare Saturn. When the severe Alaskan earthquake occurred March 27-28, 1964, Scheat was conjunct Mars square MC and opposite Asc. On the other hand, it is possible for a positive influence to emanate from Scheat, but only for some people and have an effect on their mental creativity if these people are ready to receive such inflow. Scheat has a bad effect only if tied up with malefics. [3]

α and β Pagasi; respectively Markab and Scheat, are both Mars-Mercury stars. Both these stars are true-black malefics in traditional astrology, promising injury by one’s hand or another’s and life imprisonment. We can now see how, in the times of profane use of astrology, this arose. At this far end of the Zodiac, we find it easy to delude ourselves that ‘now we know it all’; we can take our seats with the gods. ‘Markab’ is commonly a ship but may be used for any kind of conveyance, a saddle on a horse included, so off we go in or on it. If we did indeed learn what Andromeda had to teach us at the start of the journey, then fine, we can achieve ‘Great Mastery,’ the occasionally mentioned positive signature of these two stars: all we could wish for, that being the meaning of Scheat (Al Shi’at). But if we started out rightly, then we should have here no need to exhibit that mastery in secular power, nor should we still need to wish for more than we already have and are: ‘My Kingdom is not the world’, as Jesus said so well. So we can easily recognize the quiet, unassuming, untroubled true master from the embattled, imprisoned, pathetic pretender to mastery. [4]

Scheat rules the center of the ball of the left foot. [4]

The three main stars of Pegasus all have a similar astrological influence, those being Scheat, Markab and Algenib. Although Scheat has a nasty reputation in astrology, there are plenty of examples of people with this star prominent expressing the positive manifestations of Scheat. So much depends on the whole chart, the aspects from Scheat and the other stars in the chart.

Constellation Pegasus

Constellation Pegasus the Flying Horse gives ambition, vanity, intuition, enthusiasm, caprice, and bad judgment. It prevails against the diseases of horses and preserves horsemen in battle. According to Ptolemy, the bright stars are like Mars and Mercury. [1]

The constellation portends events concerning ships and the ocean and also changes in the weather. In medieval times, it was said to indicate vain individuals with a great deal of ambition but very poor judgment. [2]

Pegasus, like birds, angels, and most celestial winged creatures, is an allegory for the superior spiritual power that the hero first sought out to aid him in his task, and the Owl represents the wisdom side of that same power. [3]

In mundane astrology, Pegasus is associated with drowning, accidents, catastrophes, earthquakes, tsunamis, storms, floods, shipwrecks, mining accidents, airplane accidents, falling accidents, shooting down from high, horses, jockeys, transportation, communications, space travel, exploration, pioneering, science, invention and heroism.

Fixed Star Scheat Conjunctions

Ascendant conjunct Scheat: Grave, thoughtful, melancholy, liable to disgrace, much care and anxiety, connected with building, mines and minerals (Saturn nature). [1]

Midheaven conjunct Scheat: Trouble through old people, disgrace, trade losses, deceitful associates, rise followed by fall (Saturn nature). [1]

Cecilia Bartoli 0°33′ (and Saturn), Augusto Pinochet 1°29′

Descendant conjunct Scheat: Alexei Navalny 0°45′, David Duke 0°47′, Bruce Willis 1°03′ (and Sun), Rudy Giuliani 1°09′, Dave Chappelle 1°20′

Part of Fortune conjunct Scheat: Julian Assange 0°05′, Rupert Murdoch 0°18′, Rudolf Hess 0°21′, Louis XVII 0°39′, Bernadette Brady 1°03′

Sun conjunct Scheat: Danger through water and engines, liable to accidents or drowning. [1]

Preferment in astrology, occult, and matters dealing with the public. Success follows disappointments: Natives with this conjunction should exercise caution not to get involved in questionable activities, or else legal entanglement may ensue, some serious, some not so serious, depending upon the nature of the involvement. Potentially dangerous situations could prove disastrous. [6]

Sirhan Sirhan 0°18′ (and Mercury), Bruce Willis 0°24′ (and DC), James McGonagle 0°25′, Brian Mulroney 0°30′, Earl Warren 0°41′, Harvey Weinstein 0°44′, Edgar Cayce 0°44′, Ronaldinho 1°34′, Michelangelo 1°58′.

As an example of the importance of considering the whole chart, James McGonagle (a goalie in Canada’s Junior A Hockey League) tragically died in 2002, aged 19. He crashed his car “danger through engines” and went through the windshield into the water “danger through water….liable to accidents and drowning”. The tight square from watery Neptune (21′) and the Lunar Nodes (06′) made this tough for James. The North Node was conjunct fixed star Menkalinan (14′), “frequently, violent death.” The Sun was also quincunx Pluto (38′). Interestingly, when he died, transiting Pluto was conjunct his Vertex.

Brian Mulroney, the Prime Minister of Canada from 1984 to 1993, has Sun square Mars (33′) and Sun trine Pluto (19′). Neither Mars nor Pluto is on any major star, certainly not the nasty star that James’ North Node was on. The trine to Pluto helped take him to the top of politics. His Sun also sextiles his Midheaven (career) by just 24′. He gained his real power in 1982 when transiting Pluto was on his Vertex, on the most fortunate fixed star Arcturus.

Moon conjunct Scheat: Worry, loss and gain of friends through criticism, danger of accidents and by water. [1]

The native has many friends and/or acquaintances; however, the native is always acquiring new friends or acquaintances. Some of these natives may entertain the idea that ‘friends desert’ them, some of these natives are overly imaginative. Eventually, criticism is directed to the native. The native makes enemies known and unknown, and the native may become controversial. There is the possibility of a tendency towards fantasizing by some of these natives. Possibility of violence or chronic, difficult-to-diagnose or possibly serious illness. Self-destructive tendencies. [6]

John Wayne Gacy 0°15′, Richard Ramirez 0°21′, Kim Kardashian 0°57′ James Woods 1°21′.

Mercury conjunct Scheat: Many accidents and narrow escapes, especially by water, many enemies, trouble through writings, bad for health and domestic affairs. [1]

The native is mentally keen but can be criticized through their actions or statements. These natives always have one last and generally unkind remark or statement. The less advanced natives under this conjunction will tend to belabor or belittle someone, knowingly or unknowingly. The native can become a victim of unfortunate circumstances. There is the possibility of domestic problems with this conjunction. [6]

(No orb): This causes growth on the left foot, such as warts or types of fungus. There is a disruption of the energy through the lungs and breathing areas of the chest, causing fungus growth in the lungs. Anyone having this configuration should definitely not smoke, or a serious health problem will result. Emphysema, cancer, and other types of lung diseases of a serious nature are a certainty with those who have this configuration if they elect to smoke or otherwise take in foreign matter into the lungs. Natives with this conjunction should drink hot teas such as sassafras, red ginger, ginger root or goldenseal root in small amounts. These teas are purifiers and are too strong to drink continuously. As a preventative, a pinch of one of the teas in a large cup of hot water every other day would be adequate. However, if a disease has already taken hold, ginger root should be taken in small amounts every day, alternating with sassafras tea mixed with ginger root to add to the cleansing properties to the herbs. Combining sassafras with ginger root would ordinarily be too powerful for the body to handle, but in extreme cases, these persons can handle this combination for three days using a teaspoon of each herb in a large cup of hot water. This can be helpful even in the case of cancer or any type of fungus-related disease anywhere in the body. [5]

Mercury conjunct Mars conjunct Scheat: This disrupts the subconscious flow of energy to the brain in addition to the problems that Mercury alone can cause at this point. There is difficulty with nurturing and thought processes. Natives usually succumb to cheat colds, and others notice that they continually have a slight cough. They feel they must be hostile when communicating their thought processes due to the fact that they feel they did not receive enough attention from their mother. Their minds can deteriorate to a raging frenzy and disrupt others at their employment, home, or wherever they are at the time. They can be physically violent and other people do not wish to associate with them because of their disruptive tendencies. This brings on anger, and they live their lives attempting to destroy those things they desire themselves. This is a self-undoing, and it is the way they wish to live their lives. [1]

Venus conjunct Scheat: Evil environment, suffering through own acts, danger of imprisonment or restraint. [1]

Natives with this conjunction tend to create their own problems and even create problems for those associated with them. There is the danger of having some restraint in their lives, possibly something that could change the course of their life. Some of these natives create or live in a poor environment and make no effort to improve themselves. [6]

Drew Barrymore 0°15′, Vincent van Gogh 0°44′ (and Mars).

Mars conjunct Scheat: Many accidents, sickness to native and relatives. [1]

The native, with this conjunction, has high enterprise and is very ambitious, but there can be some combativeness exhibited by the native. The native can also suffer from a variety of misfortunes, or from family upsets or other family conditions. Any recognition will come late. [6]

The danger of death in catastrophes such as floods, shipwrecks, mining accidents, airplane accidents, or maybe by suicide. [3]

(No orb): These individuals experience a slight inflammation through the muscles of the left foot and the bronchial sacs. This may manifest as a boil on the bottom of the foot or in the bronchial area. There can be a persistent cough with mucus, with the problem being difficult to diagnose and to heal. These persons should drink hot peppermint or spearmint teas continuously as it is difficult to draw the infections from the bronchial area. The infected mucus simply drifts to other parts of the body, infecting the intestinal and stomach areas. [5]

Che Guevara 0°20′, Jamison Twins 0°26′, Conor McGregor 0°52′, Vincent van Gogh 1°11′ (and Venus), Prince 1°42′.

Jupiter conjunct Scheat: Many voyages, losses through law, friends and relatives, the danger of imprisonment. [1]

Preferment in business, religion, legal, occult, writings, philosophy and unusual occupations. Natives with this conjunction, with a well-aspected Jupiter and other good horoscopic conditions, can prove successful in any of the above careers and make a name and fame for themselves. Negatively, the same general conditions would apply, however, coupled with this is the possibility of disappointment in business or careers. [6]

Friedrich Nietzsche 1°11′, Louis XVII of France 1°32′.

Saturn conjunct Scheat: Danger of death in infancy, domestic trouble, colds and consumption, death by drowning or accident. [1]

The danger of death in catastrophes such as floods, shipwrecks, mining accidents, airplane accidents, or maybe by suicide. [3]

Kurt Cobain 0°10′, Cecilia Bartoli 0°21′ (and MC), Anthony Hopkins 0°36′, Frida Kahlo 0°38′, Jack Nicholson 1°12′, Joseph Stalin 1°14′, Queen Victoria 1°53′ (and Pluto)

Uranus conjunct Scheat: Deceitful, vacillating, little concentration, psychic, unreliable, involved in difficulties due to own acts, many accidents, death through drowning or by water, especially if in 1st, 6th, 8th or 10th houses. [1]

The danger of death in catastrophes such as floods, shipwrecks, mining accidents, airplane accidents, or maybe by suicide. [3]

(No orb): This causes slight spams through the feet that can be considered nerve disorders for the most part. Rubbing the feet often would be a good habit with any type of oil, and soaking them in warm water with a small amount of baking soda. Drinking a half glass of warm milk in the morning will literally heal the nerves and should be made a daily ritual. [5]

Gabriel Garcia Marquez 0°13′, Marilyn Monroe 0°39′, Elizabeth II 0°58′, Lorraine Warren 1°29′, Hugh Hefner 1°33′

Neptune conjunct Scheat: Prominent in inventive, occult or psychic matters, persecuted, peculiar domestic conditions, many accidents, danger of drowning. [1]

The danger of death in catastrophes such as floods, shipwrecks, mining accidents, airplane accidents, or maybe by suicide. [3]

Ivan The Terrible 0′12, Alan Leo 1°37′

Pluto conjunct Scheat: Danger of death in catastrophes such as floods, shipwrecks, mining accidents, airplane accidents, or maybe by suicide. [3]

(No orb): This position causes the person to have a self-destructive attitude. This is similar to Mercury conjunct Mars at this point, but the self-destructive tendencies are much greater in that they force others to dislike them. They carry out their own self-undoing through various means, like cutting themselves purposely; they burn themselves or commit suicide by jumping in front of a car or train. By doing these things, they feel they are hurting another individual in their life. They have a severe martyr complex to the point of self-destruction. This is an emotional disorder in that they feel they are harming others by harming themselves. No help can be given to these natives as they have set out to do these things in their incarnation. This configuration will occur again when the next age is on the scene. It will not be as powerful at that time as it has been in this age. There will be incarnations by those from this age who have chosen this configuration to experience these things; however, in the next age, others will simply ignore these self-destructive tendencies. In the coming Age of Aquarius, if they wish to injure or destroy themselves, others will pay little attention. The elevation of the minds of people in this new age will allow them to pay scant attention to those who wish to destroy themselves. They would feel that it would be better to rid themselves of such a person rather than become emotional over the self-inflicted injuries or destruction they have brought upon themselves. [5]

Queen Victoria 0°31′ (and Saturn), Walt Whitman 0°36′, Karl Marx 0°52′, Charles Baudelaire 1°52′.

North Node conjunct Scheat: Dr. Phil McGraw 0°13′, Paul Cézanne 0°37′, Ted Kennedy 0°54′, Mariah Carey 1°08′, Tucker Carlson 1°30′.

South Node conjunct Scheat: Percy Bysshe Shelley 0°00′, Bob Dylan 0°00′, George Pell 0°08′, Salvador Dali 1°45′.

Scheat Star in Mundane Astrology

The mythology says Scheat is connected to misfortune and water and the air. I will focus on events related to storms, water, and the air (specifically planes, not spaceships). One more link I found was with industrial disputes. Only looking at Uranus and Saturn conjunct Scheat with orbs under 50′.

Water and Storms: The last time Uranus was on Scheat, the costliest hurricane in history hit America. On September 18, 1926, the Great Miami Hurricane killed over 370 people and left 50,000 homeless. In today’s terms, it cost $157 billion, compared to $99 billion for Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Uranus was conjunct Scheat by 45′. There were no aspects to Uranus as there will be this year. The last time Saturn was on Scheat, a ferry sank off Haiti on 01 April 1996, killing over 200 people. On 08 June 1996, an F5 tornado killed 16 people and caused $100 million in damages in Topeka, Kansas.

Air Accidents: The last time Uranus was on Scheat: The first African American to hold a pilot’s license, Bessie Coleman, died after falling 2,000 feet from her airplane on 30 April 1926. On 10 May 1926, two pilots parachuted to safety after their planes collided mid-air at Langley Field, Virginia. The last time Saturn was on Scheat: 03 April 1996, USAF CT-43 crashed in Croatia, killing all 35 onboard, including US Secretary of Commerce Ron Brown. 08 June 1996, an XB-70 Valkyrie and an F-104 Starfighter collided mid-air killing both pilots in Barstow, California. July 28, 1996, the US announced that a Lockheed U-2 spy plane had disappeared over Cuba. On August 6, 1996, Braniff Airlines Flight 250 crashed in Fall City, Nebraska, killing all 42 onboard.

Strikes: The last time Uranus was on Scheat: 03 May 1926, the British general strike in support of coal miners started. Over 1.5 million workers walked out, which led to the government declaring martial law. 19 February 1927, another general strike, this time in Shanghai, protesting the presence of British troops. The last time Saturn was on Scheat: 17 June 1996, Air France workers walked out on strike. 29 June 1996, a sailor’s strike ended in the UK. These last two tie in the “air” and “water” themes of Scheat so well.


Fixed stars evolve through time. Like us and our planet, their basic nature stays the same but slowly changes. As we evolve, the energy of the fixed stars and even the planets find new ways of expression. Scheat wasn’t involved in bringing down airplanes two centuries ago, nor spaceships last century ago. Just as technology is affected, so is our consciousness. We will find newer, higher manifestations of even the most dreaded fixed stars, including nasties like Scheat and Algol.

  1. Hi Jamie,

    I have my little son’s Uranus conjunct Scheat on the border of the 8th House. I am really worried and don’t know how I can help. Is it a true indication for a suicide?

    • Hi Inna, I don’t worry about the outer planets on these stars too much. He shares this will all the kids his age. If anything it would give this generation some special kind of spiritual insight I would think. There may be some mass conscious past life memory of a deluge or large loss of life from a tsunami or flood. I know you worry when you see it on the 8th house cusp. Although most astrologers do use houses, no one agrees on which house system to use, Placidus, Koch, whole houses etc. Each one will give you a different 8th house cusp. Marina uses the Koch house system but I don’t use any at all, and only pay attention to AC/DC, MC/IC.

  2. Thank you very much, Jamie!

    That is a very interesting view on the past life influence. You are right, I thought about how many kids were born during that time in 2010 and certainly a lot of them have this conjunction in the 8th house. Anyways, thank you very much, I feel much better )))

    • I have never sworn by any system! I started with equal because that’s what the Faculty of Astrological studies in London taught, its a good basic system.
      Then I have experimented with, in this order:
      Placidius, Koch, Porphyry, Whole and then back to Koch. I wrote this post when I was mainly using whole signs:

      Whole signs are best used for deep-soul based readings. But I don’t rate them when it comes to looking at transits; Eg when planets or progressed moon enters houses. When I started using Huber’s Escoteric method in 2011, they recommend using Koch. Since I always preferred my own chart with it personally I was happy to go back to it. And then I was blown away a few times with its accuracy in terms of making accurate predictions when the progressed moon entered the twelfth house.(To the DAY!) So that REALLY sold it back to me. I wanted to write a post on the Koch system and why I like it only I never got round to it.
      So now I use Koch AND whole signs. I’m starting to use whole signs again for Dark Goddess, because its more magical and suits it.

      • “swore by” was just my New Jersey roots showing 🙂 Thanks for the info, which of course leaves me a bit confused. Hoch for transits, for non-experts like me, is what I’ll take away…

  3. My Juno is conj. to Scheat! And The first years I felt connected to the goodies of the stars. Though, the last, were nasty.

    I know that Daniel, as an angel, is working with me to get a better marriage (to be able to be in one… there are so much trouble in my chart: Lillith op moon, juno in a very harsh zone betw. pisces and aries, just to mention a few…

    Oh well, is not that I really understand, but at least, I can share that I don´t! Mhhh!


    Thankyou, as always, for the insights!


  4. I have Scheat conjunct my Pisces Sun 27deg59 in 8th House. I wanted to go off-planet, not so much suicide, in March 2009 and November 2012. I have always been a strong swimmer in the enclosed pool, but on my first lesson in open water in the Red Sea in diving gear I discovered I had a fear of drowning. Most convenient! My lungs felt as if they were collapsing. My young Israeli instructor began to scream at me. I screamed back which calmed me down. I’m a soft-spoken, self-effacing charmer in the Piscean way but when I’m pushed, my raging Medusa side is invoked. After I got my licence, I never went diving again. Although I had always been fine snorkelling and skin diving before and since. I also have a similar fear of enclosed places like low caves and tunnels. Even crawling through an innocuous fabric tunnel while at play group with my daughter paralysed me. Death by horse chariot may seem irrelevant in our age… but I have (or had) a horse and cat allergy to the point of near-anaphylactic shock, hyperventilation, hives. I couldn’t have chosen a better setting the second time it happened. I was in Petra, Jordan, on one of these horse carriages used for touring the ruins. Just after the Roman-period amphitheatre carved into the rock.

    • PS: Past life de-programming appears to have cleared the phobias and allergies.

  5. thankyou for this article and people responding with their Scheat aspects. i would like to seemore research done on this.
    yes i too have Scheat in prominence conjunct moon by exact degree in 1oth house of natal chart 29.00 my sun is 21 degrees. way too much to tell of continual drama trauma crisis existential suffering tragedy and rebirth

  6. Hi Jamie,
    My newborn daughter has the Scheat on the 2nd house Cusp, to be honest I started worrying on the finance bit and then (alas) I realized that Uranus is like 4 degrees away only in Aries, I am now wondering whether due to the star moving relative position that is an actual Uranus conjuction, please – please – please advise, as this is super worrying,
    many thanks,

  7. Hello, Does Scheat have any influence when conjunct
    to the South node?

      • Anyone know where I can obtain a decent image of scheat specifically – I’ve been looking online and I can’t find one – maybe it doesn’t exist?

  8. You will not believe this ‘Scheat:’ On Feb 3rd, the day we found out my live-in boyfriend and soulmate Harry had brain cancer, and the day he (his kids forced him to) dumped me for his kids–asteroid Amor #1221 was exact on our composite AND Davision Amor Return–at “the weeping degree,” 29′ Pisces ON Fixed Star Scheat!!!! (1)
    “According to Ptolemy it is of the nature of Mars and Mercury… It causes extreme misfortune, murder, suicide, and drowning…
    With Venus [closest to Amor energy]: Evil environment, suffering through own acts, danger of imprisonment or restraint.” (2)
    Sounds more than appropriate! Harry was supporting me because I lost my job due to illness, (Neptune transit square Neptune) and arranged for me to be given $50k when he was unable to. His brother said the money is all gone, and gave me $15k only if I signed a gag order. So I’m bursting but have to restrain my love for Harry to run to his side. I am respecting his wishes to make up with his kids, whom he feels guilty about. They ran him over (they’re just like him!)
    Also, on April 14th, Harry and my progressed composite chart’s Moon will conjoin prog comp asteroid Themis at 15′ Sag, 1′ from my prog Sun, at the opening of my 5th house of love affairs; justice 😛
    On March 3rd, the day Venus crosses my Descendant, (the degree of the Sun the day we met), Pluto will be on my progressed N Node of the Moon…!!!! Cray cray.
    I saw our comp/prog and Davison Amor on the fixed star Scheat, but tried to believe it would turn out ok 😛
    This site says Scheat is at 28′ Pisces, but I checked, in 1972 it entered 29′

    • Wow Lisa, thanks so much for sharing something so personal. This sure supports the use of fixed stars in relationships charts too. I hope things turn out OK for you through all this.

  9. I’ve got this star conjunct my natal Mars. I almost drowned a couple of times when I was a kid, before I learnt how to swim and also had many accidents! Broken wrist twice, may sprains to my wrist, sprained ankles, many scrapes on the knees and elbows! I think that the effects of this star were more prominent in my childhood in regards to accidents. I’d say that I’ve had quite a bit of misfortune in my life and oddly have had to stop other people committing suicide a couple of times. One lad was trying to run in front of a car and another was my friend. I brought the lad home with me and gave him some dinner, then he was off on his way and I had to convince my friend not to, because of the detrimental effect it would have on her kids. She said that she would leave them a suicide note and that they’d understand, but I would not except that. I also had to stop her from poisoning her partners mother. I don’t know if that’s anything related to this star as it would of been murder. Maybe the fact that I’ve witnessed these kind of things in my life have some kind of relation to the star? I don’t know. Oh and I witnessed a family member threatening to commit suicide years ago (when I was a child), which I found very distressing.

    • This is often the case, not only with this star but also Algol, probably some others too. Actually even some challenging aspect patterns like Thor’s Hammer. The violence or misfortune can manifest in those around you. It is still part of your life and you are deeply affected by it. You can also evolve just like the fixed stars evolve, to a higher spiritual manifestation. This has also been noted with Algol and I’m sure many other challenging stars.

      • Yes, I’d say this is definitely true. A lot of misfortune. But I started to evolve quite a bit around 21 when I started travelling. I had time to think and reflect on events in my life from when I got into unfortunate situations (relationships etc) in the first place. I think that’s true too – that we can evolve with the Stars, just like we have to evolve with challenging planetary aspects. Maybe the misfortune of this star could also be karma too? I don’t know… My name equals the karmic number 8 (Saturian). But then my birthday is a karmic reward number. Going off track a bit, but I think that maybe sometimes we have to receive karma from the stars, planets and numerology numbers.

        • This might be a karmic placement and if so Mars would relate to past life violence which is a tricky area. War is usually kill or be killed. Then there are mercy killings and the other person may not realize you are being kind at that moment.

          • We’ll find out the truth about everything when we come to the end of our lives and our spirit goes to the other side. All truth will be revealed.

  10. I have a Scheat conjunction with Mercury and the bit about the left foot and lungs is spot on. I’ve used ginger root for a few years now to help reduce inflammation and increase circulation. Very odd, reading that.

    • ‘I have a Scheat conjunction with Mercury and the bit about the left foot and lungs is spot on’. Ditto, Leelo. Also oddly, I had to stop smoking against my will in late December 2016: cigs just tasted vile. The prospect of smoking still makes me shudder. But I shall be doing those teas. (I bought a bit of ginger root not long ago. Again odd.) All the best.

  11. Jamie, what would you say natal Chiron conjunct Scheat means? Chiron being “the wounded healer” in following Melanie Reinhardt’s (and others’) teachings.

  12. Yesterday on 19 march, i had a birthday. So, my sun is in 28.59 degree in pisces. And so…. my sun is conjunct with Scheat and opposite pluto. Sextil saturn, moon and mars,square jupiter and trine neptune. So much aspects with my sun….in 9th house.

    • Tell me what to expect in my life with this conjunction of scheat and sun? Is this so very bad?

  13. Happy birthday, Mimi! We were born on the same day: my Sun, at 28’38” of Pisces conjunct Scheat in the 10th house, is pretty much in the same spot as yours. But it is being squared by transiting Saturn, which is opposite my natal Ascendant square Sun. And transiting Pluto is conjunct my Moon. How does transiting Pluto opposite Sun/Scheat feel? (I can assure you that Saturn square Sun/Scheat feels pretty harsh)

  14. I have this star on my Descendant. My sun and more personal planets also make contact with other fixed stars but I’m curious about this position concerning the houses of my birth chart. Can someone please elaborate?

  15. My natal asteroid Child is 24° pisces (4th house) my daughter has p.of fortune 21° and uranus 26° 6th house.

    My natal asteroid karma is 28° pisces 5th house close conjunct p.of fortune conjunct venus aries 0° 5th house.
    My progressed IC now is 29° pisces..
    I have felt an emotional loss and the tears keep flowing afterwards it seems to create order and structure again.
    It is square my progressed (1st house) lilith sagittarius 28° conjunct galactic center..
    Dont know what that means…

  16. Only conjunctions, and very tight ones at that, are relevant to fixed stars, fellow commenters. That is assuming any of this that we’ve studied for so long is relevant at all.

    • I would also think this would apply in a synestry chart if its tight or as a transit or progression ?

  17. It should be worth noting that the last time Uranus was conjunct Scheat, the record-breaking Tohoku earthquake and tsunami of 11 March 2011 happened, with radioactive consequences that continue even today.

    • Interesting observation ! That’s how astrology is done ! I personally like to concentrate on conjunctions where you can observe the marriage of the 2 or more energies combined , and then work out from there to the other geometrical positions.
      One of the’ theme’ possibilities for the Uranus / Taurus transit is the potential for sudden earth changes , is one of my interpretations.Could Scheat be a trigger ? I m not familiar with this ; asteroid ?

  18. I have a dear friend who lost his way by taking drugs. His Mercury is conjunct Sheat in his 12th house. He also smokes. Each year since he has succumbed to using I have seen his health sorely declined. What is even more disturbing is to see his mind becoming less lucid and rational. I have seen this star in other charts which hasn’t contributed much good unless there are favorable stars contradicting unfavorable tendencies. However, evil stars in one’s 23th house is a bad omen.

  19. I have venus conj scheat on asc and sqr mon 0.13 cancer but apart from 3 unsuccessful relationships my creativity has sustained me once the moon rubbish got sorted out and cleared 🙂

  20. I found this star at the top of the chart of Francois Duvalier, Papa Doc in square to his mars in Capricorn and square Jupiter and Neptune in Cancer. Papa Doc was a brutal dictator and killer and ruled Haiti with an iron hand. Not only was he cruel but he showed no concern for the life of anyone including children. He captured in his killings a baby but whose life laid in secret through Papa Doc life. What is eerie is that this soulless dictator enjoyed studying the occult along with experimenting with Voodoo.
    I believe the evil character of man is shown in possible connection with some stars. However, such a finding leaves more deeper questions regarding both Evil and the nature of a loving God.

  21. the sun in Pisces conjunct Scheat:: This star was found on Scheat in opposition Pluto conjunct Denebola . This character also had Castor conjunct Ascendent and Mar conjunct Antares. This character I felt even before read his chart that his chart reveals a troublesome and violent character who may also have been in imprisonment. This jerk is fooling family friend but he’s just a bad and evil jerk who I need to get him out of our life. I never fail to read when something is up, especially when I read the fixed stars. The Sun in opposition to Pluto is trouble but joining evil stars brings more unpleasant surprises.

  22. I do too, mimi: exact conjunct, so ‘Danger through water and engines, liable to accidents or drowning’. I have never driven a car, and I swim only in the shallows. (Perhaps I knew intuitively what I have just learned from Jamie.) I still can, of course have an engine-related accident, or drown. So far I have done neither. I am 77 years old, and easily pass for 20 years younger. The very hard punches have hit my Moon, not my Sun.

  23. Titan sub incident/accident June 2023. Close Neptune aspecting Pluto, Sun, Merc.
    Clearly and sadly it wasn’t a good time to risk this tour to the remains of the Titanic.
