The Sun joins Thuban on August 31

Fixed star Thuban, Alpha Draconis, is a binary star system in the tail of the Dragon, Draco Constellation. Magnitude 3.67, spectral type A0IV + A1V. Despite being the Alpha star, Thuban is much fainter than Etamin, the brightest star in the constellation.

The traditional and official name Thuban is derived from the Arabic word ثعبان thuʿbān (‘large snake’, e.g., a python or a legendary draconian serpent). It is sometimes known as the Dragon’s Tail and as Adib.

According to British conspiracy theorist David Icke, Alpha Draconis is the origin of blood-drinking, shape-shifting reptilians who lurk in underground bases on Earth and plot against humanity (with the aid of powerful figures, including royalty). [1]

Thuban Astrology

Fixed star Alioth has the spectral types A0 and A1, indicating the planetary nature of Venus.

SPECTRAL CLASS A: These bluish-white stars give great honors, artistic appreciation, unexpected gains, good fortune, riches, good judgment, sociableness, creativeness, idealism, and impulsiveness. Challenging aspects cause wantonness, indiscretion, scandals, foolhardiness, destructiveness, cleverness, many anxious moments and a self-seeking nature. [2]

The star Thuban (α-Dra) was the pole star 3000 years ago. It was called the “Judge of Heaven” during the reign of the first Saragon king of Akkad, and it can be seen from the bottom of the central passage of the Great Pyramid of Cheops. [3]

Having the fixed star Thuban in your astrology chart shows a depth of character. Artistic skills and a passion for all the arts are found. Living a life where your talents are regularly seen and heard is a pathway offered here. Singing, preaching, writing and general leadership are all promising with Thuban in your astrology chart. Thuban does also indicate a hard time with family. Situations where a lack of understanding and compromise spoil the mood for reconciliation. Although with patience, the Thuban star energy will take over, and all love connections grow due to the complications. On the shadow side of Thuban if the star’s energy is used negatively, it backfires on us. If our intentions with our fellow man are not honest and forthcoming an anger sets in. Creating mistakes and broken promises. Be sure to handle all things in this time calmly with gratitude. Remind yourself the universe is testing you, and act accordingly. Caught in a pattern of forces over which we have no control and are restless for change, this energy is best focussed on analyzing the current situation. Travel opportunities and finances are favored, especially if others are included. Just don’t be a slave to the addiction of emotional highs and lows… since this will isolate and divide. [4]

Constellation Draco

According to Ptolemy, the bright stars are like Saturn and Mars. Draco gives an artistic and emotional but somber nature, a penetrating and analytical mind, much travel and many friends but danger of robbery and of accidental poisoning. It was said by the Ancients that when a comet was here, poison was scattered over the world. By the Kabalists, it is associated with the Hebrew letter Mem and the 13th Tarot Trump “Death.” [5]

The early astrologers called Draco “The Poisonous Dragon.” The constellation is especially hurtful to mineral resources and presages the pollution of rivers and the air. The Moon’s Nodes are named after this constellation. The Dragon’s Head (North Node) and the Dragon’s Tail (South Node) refer to the Moon’s undulating course symbolized by the twisting of the Dragon about the North Pole. [3]

  3. If you are an historian, what is interesting about Thuban is its position at 0°Virgo38′, when HERNAN CORTEZ shows up in Mexico, 1519, 500 years ago. Were the conquistidors looking for gold and silver?

    The first chronicle by the Aztecs, April 21, 1516…. 500 years later, April 21, 2019, we now see Regulus at 0°Virgo04, star Phecda 0°Virgo45′ and Comet Gault at 0°Virgo36 station direct.

    • Few corrections. The first chronicle by the Aztecs, of Cortez arrival, was April 21, 1519.

      And Today, Regulus is at 0°Virgo06′. Phecda and Gault are conjunct, so if anyone has more detail on Phecda beyond Jamies Phecda page, I would like to hear from you.

  4. I was looking at housing market and demographic data and was surprised to learn age 32/33 is the median age for first time buyers.

    Subtract this age from 2019 and the year of birth is 1986/87. What sprunge to mind immediately was the Harmonic Convergence in 1987. Wiki has a good overview: the Aztec calender, Cortez, a good helping of astrology, but no charts…. and the date of the Next harmonic convergence, March 3, 2019.

    • Hi Klaus. I had included all the interpretations I could find published by fixed star astrologers. Maybe one day someone can collate all the information to work out the missing ones. I still add celebrities to these fixed star pages regularly. I am also in the process of adding tags for star types (double, binary, variable, spectral class) which will help wih filling in the gaps.
