Fixed Star Tejat Posterior Astrology

Fixed star Tejat Posterior gives force, energy, power and protection. Of the nature of Mercury and Venus (courteous, affable, orderly, elegant, sweet-tempered, lovable, refined, artistic, honor and riches.) Also called Dirah, from Al Dirah, the Seed or Branch. Symbolically called the Abused or Beaten One. [1]

Tejat Prior, η Gemorium, has a hybrid Arabic-Latin name meaning the Underneath Front (star). Within two degrees of it on Castor’s foot is Tejat Posterior, μ Gemorium, the Underneath Rear star, naturally. Bye the bye, Tahat is a better pronunciation. Posterior also goes by the names Dirah and Nuhaiai.

Both Tejats are Mercury-Venus stars by Ptolemy: thus again, we find that quality which we saw in Alhena, the ability to express ideas in reasonable and acceptable ways which win because of their manifest intelligence. Some commentators have, as usual when they mention almost any star, drawn attention to the capacity found in these three to capitalize on the popularity one may gain from the ease of the ‘public appeal’ quality latent in them, and to use it for unscrupulous ends. But this is doubtful if there is any advantage at all in human affairs which may not be abused, if one is so minded, so why single out this one for special condemnation?!

All three stars, the two Tejats and Alhena, fill the first 10°, or Decan, of the Cardinal Sign Cancer, into which they entered in 1349, 1621 and 1755 A.D. respectively. Each of these dates, within a year or two, was significant in the rise of European thought and literature from the Renaissance onwards. [3]

Tejat Posterior rules the center of the chest. [4]

Constellation Gemini

Gemini is said to cause trouble and disgrace, sickness, loss of fortune, affliction and danger to the knees. [1]

Those born within Gemini will be crafty in the good sense of the word, in all their works and in all their tasks. Among them will be writers, mathematicians, astronomers, and famous sages. They will be truthful individuals and moderate in their fear of God. In terms of children, the Gemini are specially charged with the production of twins. Gemini was given the name “many-faced” in ancient times because it denotes not only twins, but three or more children at a single birth.

The Gemini produces a generous and chaste personality. Individuals excelling in games and fond of philosophy and astronomy are also indicative of Gemini, as are also those who are magnanimous, munificent, and (sometimes) violent. Modern astrologers attribute the following to the Gemini: clever, intuitive, restless, heartlessness, undependability, inquisitive, lack of perseverance, and sometimes too clever. Classicists say that the Geminian follow the professions of kings, calculators, teachers, hunters, dancers, musicians, painters, and tailors. The Modernists add: journalists, novelists, lecturers, linguists, commercial travelers, and pupils. [5]

Astrologers assigned to this constellation guardianship over human hands, arms, and shoulders; while Albumasar held that it portended intense devotion, genius, largeness of mind, goodness, and liberality. Considered the House of Mercury and a fortunate sign. Chinese astrologers asserted that if this constellation were invaded by Mars, war and a poor harvest would ensue. [2]

5th Arabic Manzil – Al-Haq’ah

Helps the return from a journey, the instruction of scholars, building, and gives health and goodwill.

With Moon: Begin war but do not sow or undertake any good.

22nd Chinese Xiù – 井 (Jǐng) Well

This is the head of the Phoenix. Associated with beauty, water, navigation at sea, hygiene, cleaning, repairs, and refurbishments. Because of the association of cleanliness with Godliness (virtue), this mansion also presides over law and order, moral uprightness and cleansing of moral wrongs.

The luck in this mansion is said to vary because of the conflict of the elements involved. Labor is rewarded, while idleness is sanctioned. It is good for taking exams, tending to herbivorous animals and all types of industriousness. It is very good for gardening and widows. Bad for funerals because of the risk of epidemics and sudden death, though, and all projects in progress should be worked on instead of being put aside.

Saturn conjunct Tejat Posterior: This planet causes delay for these persons in finding security in the home. They are usually raised by selfish parents who lack the nurturing element that is necessary for the child. It is not that the parents lack the resources to supply the child with what it needs, it is simply that the parents wish to express their selfishness. The child may receive the basic necessities, but more often than not, the deprivation is worse. As the child matures, it begins to feel worthless, and as an adult, they would feel deprived and irritated with their childhood. The tendency would be to dwell on the injustices of their parents and thereby reflect on that part of their life often. This can affect these persons physically through stomach problems. Food would not digest properly in the stomach causing a breakdown of the tissues there. [4]

  1. Hello Jamie, what is your take on the natal sun conjunct this fixed star? Thanks for your input!

  2. I also have this star conjunct my natal sun, in the 12th house. If it symbolizes abused or beaten one, I imagine that in my natal chart, it is to cast light (sun) on the wounds that are hidden subconsciously, ones I need to face and overcome. Possibly to help others as well. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

    • Hi Tracey, my sun is located in the 6th house on this star. It squares my Aries Saturn in the 4th and the description provided of the star and Saturn by Jamie above resonates with me. As does ‘abused and beaten’ to some degree.
      I have battled one form of health issue or another much of my life. Nothing life threatening, but always enough to make life miserable (e,g, asthma, allergies, immune system/nervous system issues, etc). The stomach is problematic and good organic, non inflammatory food and exercise imperative. I was a chronic workaholic until almost 50 but have been learning to take it easier since then.
      An aneretic Chiron in Pisces straddles my IC squaring my sun. I have been searching for the gifts in the wound (to offer to others) for what seems like forever, and with varying success. My sun is sextile my conjuncted north node and part of fortune… and so I keep the faith.
      Astrology helps the self development process. I think our natal chart tells the whole story. Opening ourselves to understanding the story it becomes clearer bit by bit. Sometimes when I hear specific truths important to me, I see it in my minds eye in the form of a picture of a planet, house, asteroid, fixed star connection within my natal chart.

  3. Jamie,

    I am trying to look into my partner’s strange stomach problems. The only stars that I see with stomach issues prominent in his chart are Jupiter and the Earth.

    Jupiter at 2*00″ Cancer – slightly out of orb with Tejat Posterior
    Earth at 3*13″ Libra – within orb of Zaniah

    Currious about:
    “Saturn conjunct Tejat Posterior: …This can affect these persons physically through stomach problems. Food would not digest properly in the stomach causing a breakdown of the tissues there.”

    Do you think a harshly aspected Jupiter (Jupiter square Sun) could develop these same problems, even though it is slightly out of orb? The abuse part isn’t very accurate.


    Earth (which would also be squaring Jupiter) conjunct Zaniah:
    “Mars conjunct Zaniah: …This causes difficulty with the lining of the small intestine.”

    Do you think these conjunctions to both of these stars could be the indicator of the stomach issues?
