Seginus Astrology

SEGINUS. Y Boötis. A small star situated on the  left shoulder of Boötes. Of the nature of Mercury and Saturn. It gives a subtle mind, shamelessness, and loss through friends and companies. [1]

Y Boötis. A yellowish-white star. Spectrum class A7. This star imparts to its natives a keen mentality, subtleness, shameless, and a wide acquaintance. Negatively it imparts a tendency towards making sudden, often fatal decisions, self-destruction, and cruelty. [4]

On the left shoulder of Bootes has the star gamma, γ, Seginus, a word coming from Latin for corn-crop, and thus meaning a reaper or harvester. In some illustrations Bootes hold a reaping sickle in his hand. To the Arabs it is Al Haris, the Guard or Protector. With its Mercury-Saturn simile it emphasizes the protective nature of Bootes, and ourselves. The planetary connotation also shows up well the potential for writing or public speaking in those who have it in their horoscopes. [2]

Seginus rules the nerves of the right kidney. [3]

Constellation Boötes

Bootes gives prosperity from work, strong desires, a tendency to excess, a fondness for rural pursuits, together with some liking for occultism. [1]

Mercury conjunct Saturn conjunct Seginus: This brings difficulty with the flow of energy on the inside of the right kidney. It brings on spasms of the nerves which closes off proper blood flow through this area, bringing on failure of the kidney to function. This necessitates using a dialysis machine in order to enable these natives to function every day. The energy and the nerves become so completely clogged that the kidney cannot function. At first, these persons experience a numbness there, and when the condition becomes critical, they experience excruciating pain which may result in the kidney being removed. The key here is salt. It is salt in the diet that brings on the problem, and those who consume great amounts of salt will experience the disease very early in life. Another problem is sugar. These persons should eliminate sugar from the diet as they usually have low blood sugar levels and are treated for this condition. Sugar should be replaced by honey in the diet as honey is a natural healer for the body. This condition can also be helped by pepper grass which stimulates the nerves and the flow of energy in this area. Just a small piece of leaf in a salad would be sufficient. [3]

2 thoughts on “Fixed Star Seginus

  1. Trumps Jupiter is adversely aspected which doesn’t denote a judicious mind or concern for others, According to Rigor, he could make sudden, often fateful decisions and is cruel. Some think he is brilliant, I think he’s a fool,

  2. I found Anderson Coopers chart with Seginus conjunct both his ascendant and Mars in Libra. He truly has a gift for public speaking and his Libra ascendant adds to his appeal to the public. However, what you see is not always what lies beneath an suave outer personality.
