Mounted Star Altair ~ Darkstar Astrology


Constellation Aquila the Eagle runs from 14º Capricorn to 3º Aquarius within the sky so the Solar aligns with these levels roughly from January 6 to 25. Altair is its brightest mounted star at 1º 47′ Aquarius, so in case your birthday is twentieth to twenty fourth January this might be your delivery star. The mighty Eagle has been a potent emblem and totem animal all through historical past.

Three nice (or not so nice) powers have used it as their image, the Roman Empire, the Nazi occasion and extra not too long ago the US of America. Eagles are a pure emblem alternative for a superpower. Who wouldn’t need to be in contrast with an animal recognized for its lengthy life, majestic appears and nice power? The constellation carries a lot of the identical which means.

“The English phrase eagle comes from Latin aquila. The phrase Aquila, eagle, is believed to imply ‘water-colored fowl’ and is said to Latin aqua  -, water, as is Aquarius” [Klein].

It’s fascinating that this star falls in Aquarius Decan 1, as whereas I used to be researching I may see the place a number of the which means for the tropical zodiac definition of Aquarius might have originated.

For instance, the Eagle has the flexibility to see from nice heights however has poor shut up imaginative and prescient. Aquarians are recognized for needing house, however on the identical time are nice visionaries. They are going to be eager humanitarians, however paradoxically can withdraw and freeze-over, if a buddy will get too clingy or demanding of their treasured time.

Constellation Aquilla

“Influences: In keeping with Ptolemy the affect of Aquila is just like that of Mars and Jupiter. It’s mentioned to offer nice creativeness, sturdy passions, indomitable will, a dominating character, affect over others, clairvoyance, a eager penetrating thoughts and talent for chemical analysis.” [2] 

Aquila is the expertise scout. In fantasy, he’s Zeus within the type of an Eagle that noticed the good-looking younger Prince Ganymede. Almighty Zeus having taken the type of the Eagle, snatched the boy by his talons and appointed him to be the lover and cup-bearer (Aquarius once more) to the Gods.

You’ll be able to see Aquila the eagle hovering above the top of the water bearer within the heavens, however he’s depicted carrying the gorgeous youth Antinous in Roman variations of the constellation proven right here. The Greek model has Ganymedes is usually representing the god of gay love, which sits nicely with Uranian-ruled Aquarius, since Uranus is usually considered being the homosexual planet!

A fellow astrologer was of the opinion that every one Aquarian girls had been androgynous and “butch” wanting, presumably due to Uranus’s asexual repute. He may be proper if Aquila is rising since Robson says of the Eagle:

“It has additionally been mentioned to offer a love of swimming (Aqua), and to be related with sure intercourse irregularities, the latter in all probability being best in that a part of the constellation mendacity in Capricorn” [1]

Cupids Dart


I simply see this attribute as being a part of Aquila’s daring and risque nature. After all, the mixture of Mars and Jupiter is sure to create a excessive libido. That intercourse drive with the boldness will consequence within the topic being unashamedly “outre” about their sexuality, whether or not you be a brazen lassie or a raging queen.

Sexuality’s connection to Aquila is sensible if you see that the Kabbalists affiliate it with the Tarot card “The Lovers” and that it additionally has associations with the attractive signal of Scorpio. The Eagle is also a logo for Scorpio as Archangel Oriel. The angelic illustration of Royal star Antares, (Watcher of the West.)

Chilled Aquarius (the Solar Signal) is just not usually famous for the “Robust passions” talked about by Robson above, so after we add Aquila we get an additional spicy layer. Zeus was referred to as the god of lightning.

Hearth is spirit and the eagle was seen because the instrument of calling hearth down from heaven, similar to Zeus/Jupiter’s thunderbolts. Eagles had been launched over the physique of the lifeless Roman Emperor, as a result of they believed that the eagle would carry the deceased soul up into Heaven.

Now once more we will see simply how this pertains to the Aquarian fantasy as Liz Inexperienced associates Prometheus with Aquarius. I believe this all suits so very nicely.

Prometheus possesses Aquila’s boldness, being the daring human who stole hearth from the gods. This can be a humanitarian motion, an act of nice braveness, not for private glory however for the larger good of mankind. In mundane astrology, Anne Wright has discovered an affiliation between the constellation Aquila and the USA, house exploration, kidnapping, and bombs and missiles. “Altair is sweet for development of attorneys and army males” [2]

Thunderbolt Ardour

“It confers a daring, assured, valiant, unyielding, formidable and liberal nature, nice and sudden however ephemeral wealth, and a place of command, makes its natives responsible of bloodshed, and offers hazard from reptiles” [1]

It’s fascinating that the pure enemy of the Eagle is the reptile. However I additionally assume this can be a logo of Altair’s pure urge to rise above the limbic/reptilian mind and resist utilizing that doubtlessly flammable Martian/Jupiter power for gratuitous bloodshed and to puff up its personal ego.

“Altair is related to boldness and motion however this boldness can also be related to human relationships and caring. This star carries the divine hearth of inspiration, which transforms into dedication, the flexibility to attain by risk-taking or by dogged dedication. This can be a star of motion and power and so will naturally motion slightly than inaction. On the identical time, this quest for motion is not only for its personal sake but in addition to serve others” [3]

Altair can be the proper archetype of the male conquerer and awe-inspiring greatness. It’s considerably heroic, however not in a brash Martian means. It’s extra refined, like a chivalrous knight. I’m pondering 3 components Sir Galahad to at least one half Sir Lancelot. In a girl, this is able to be a Joan of Arc slightly than a Boudicca.

Nevertheless, issues can go horribly improper with Altair, as Manilus rightly factors out. Sarah Aldrete the infamous serial killer has it rising, I’m questioning if the state of ones Jupiter defines how this star performs out, since this star is Jupiter in disguise. Sarah has Jupiter on Algol whereas Carl Jung’s Jupiter is on much more lucky Arcturus.
