Syrma Astrology

Fixed star Syrma has the spectral type F6, indicating the planetary nature of Mercury.

Basically, the yellow group is fortunate for success, material matters, careers, leadership ability, the ability to conquer, mental keenness, a demanding person, one who is thoughtful, serious person, brings on melancholy, one who is a hard worker, a determined person, an adventurer, a private person, a rise followed by a fall, one who is enduring, a sincere person, a self centered person, causes self destruction and possibly turbulence. [3]

According to Al Bīrūnī, the Arabs considered Iota Virginis the most fortunate of their lunar stations, adding that the horoscope of the Prophet lay here, and that the date of the birth of Moses coincided with it. [4]

Iota Virginis, Syrma, or Surma by its Greek titles, Al Ghafar by its more meaningful name in Arabic. The significance of this star and title lies firstly in the heavy personal responsibility which is implicit in the occult questing and acquisition of spiritual power seen in Khambalia and secondly in the Islamic concept of Istighafar (the act of seeking forgiveness from Allah). [5]

Constellation Virgo

Ptolemy makes the following observations; “The stars in the head of Virgo, and that at the top of the southern wing, operate like Mercury and somewhat like Mars; the other bright stars in the same wing, and those about the girdle, resemble Mercury in their influence, and also Venus, moderately); those at the points of the feet and at the bottom of the garments are like Mercury, and also Mars, moderately.” By the Kabalists it is associated with the Hebrew letter Gimel and the 3rd Tarot Trump “The Empress.” [6]

This constellation is indicative of an abundance in harvest and a fruitfulness of agriculture in general. But when prominent in the charts of eclipses it portends events concerning kings (heads of state) and in this regard can be an ill omen indeed. [7]

  1. what if jupiter conjunct syrma it is in my natal chart can you explain it

  2. I imagine Sun conjunct Syrma means you display these traits (depending on how your sun in interacting with other bodies.) Cool stuff!

  3. jamie what do you think about jupiter on fixed start syrma in a natal chart how it will effect the individual

  4. Well as I have taken a couple weeks to understand history, politics, religion and how we all got to where we are at as of today, with considerations of the most radical of Islam having planned this as you’ve all pointed out, then today on Oct. 28, 2023 we are to ask God forgivance, to also consider this Eclipse season as it began in Libra, for balance. What we do not wish to see, as it is most unfortunate with Lunar Station and the opposing Moon in Taurus conjunct Sheratan, we must seek spiritual peace. Moon at Sheratan destruction by fire, war, earthquake, opposite Sun, Mars, Mercury, what I feel is quite horrific in possibility, I for one will look not to the Moon (can’t see it anyway) but to the Sun and call for peace and understanding. Scary times.
