Fixed Star Sinistra Astrology

Fixed star Sinistra gives an immoral, mean and slovenly nature. It is of the nature of Saturn and Venus (slovenly, very immoral, shameless, revolting, mean, sorrows in love). [1]

The last important star of Ophiuchus is Sinistra, ν Ophiuchi, and simply the Latin for left (hand), holding the tail of the snake. Sinistra has a Saturn-Venus theme of intelligence and healing. [2]

Sinistra star rules the middle of the right thigh. [3]

ν Ophiuchi is a dwarf orange star. Spectral class K in the left hand of Ophiuchus. This star imparts to its natives good business abilities, leadership qualities, a contentious nature, small troubles, dominance, turbulence. [5]

Constellation Ophiuchus

According to Ptolemy is like Saturn and moderately like Venus. It is said to give a passionate, blindly good-hearted, wasteful and easily seduced nature, together with little happiness, unseen dangers, enmity, strife and slander. Pliny said that it occasioned much mortality by poisoning. This constellation has also been called Aesculapius and held to rule medicines. By the Kabalists it is associated with the Hebrew letter Oin and the 16th Tarot Trump “The Lightning Struck Tower”. [1]

Ophiuchus was noted in classical times as the constellation of those who had the power of discovering healing herbs and skill in curing the bites of poisonous serpents. In a genearthical chart the constellation denoted prudence and wisdom. [4]

19th Arabic Manzil – Al Shaulah

Helps in besieging cities, taking towns, driving men from their places, destruction of seamen and captives.

With Moon: Buy cattle, hunt but do not marry.

6th Chinese Xiù – 尾 (Wěi) Tail

Fortunate for building and negotiating marriages (which resulted in rich descendants), inheritances and education. This Chinese lunar mansion denotes the finding of hidden treasure and promotion to high office. Succession, the heir-apparent and the women’s apartments where he is brought up. That which separates wood from water. Victory and success are around the corner.

Venus conjunct Sinistra: The native may become brash, using a rough cover to conceal their true emotions; they are not the warmest people in the zodiac. Their rough exterior may create enmity. Some of these natives have, a tendency to ride ‘rough shod’ over their acquaintances, friends. The native can develop a tendency towards self destruction, unusual emotional involvement, and there is the possibility of turbulence with this conjunction. [5]

This is not a health problem but it is concerned with the joviality of a person. It is the jovial type individual who overindulges in many things. They would be considered the happy-go-lucky person who does not particularly care what others think or say about them. They do not care what type of situation they are in. They are plain, simple and happy type beings who are very uncomplicated. They would just as likely sit in a pig sty to eat their dinner with their dog out of the same plate. They prefer to eat in a slovenly manner that others find totally unacceptable. Karmically, these individuals were tied to strict social circumstances in a prior life and were now given this break in order to fully relax from social amenities in this life. These persons are likable beings, but others are unable to take them to any social events as it would prove to be quite embarrassing. [3]

Saturn conjunct Sinistra: This is a restriction of happiness. It is the opposite to Venus at this degree. These persons are usually very serious beings and experience difficult personal problems. They are very structured and self-righteous, but not from a religious standpoint. They are simply very serious with anything they attempt. There is no laughter in their system. Seriousness extends to the simple task of preparing a small meal. Others who try to be jovial around these individuals are doomed to failure as those with this planetary position cannot feel a sense of joviality within themselves. There is no serious health problem here except that they do have weak thighs and therefore do not go into any type of sports but stay at home and ponder over the serious situations manifesting around the world.

  1. Lustful, wanton, infamous, scandalous, addicted to sorcery -fair comment in all cases, but poisoning no- although I did give food poisoning to my best friend and the object of my lust with a slovenly germ infested fridge cake – so spot on there.

  2. El Chapo..has Narcisuss R 37117. (29 SAG10 (with Sinestra)..conj his MC 29 Sag 20
    I USE a pendulum to get the time…

  3. Well, I have Saturn conjunct Sinistra and Venus explanation fit me better. I’m very humorous, to the point of being silly. Maybe because of a trine to Leo – Regulus Moon?

    Or perhaps I judge myself silly by my inner critic.
