Aquarius 22º 19′ ~ Beta Grus in Grus the Crane 2.2
Aquarius 23º 07’ ~ Kitalpha in Equuleus the Foal 4.1
Kitalpha is found in the constellation of Equuleus the Foal. This horse was said to be a gift to one of the Gemini twins. The foal is positioned just behind the Pegasus and is comprised of just a horses head without a body (Who’s thinking of the godfather here?) This must give a tendency to live in the head. Robson says it “It gives friendship and sagacity (discernment, good judgment) but frivolity and love of pleasure.” George Noonan says “Ancient astrologers asserted that those born under these stars will be famous charioteers, teamsters or courier scouts. They may also be veterinarians in keeping with the Mercurial nature of its major star.”  No gangsters then.
Aquarius 23º 24’ ~ Sadalsuud in the left shoulder of Aquarius 3.1
Aquarius 23º 33’ ~ Deneb Algedi in the fish-tail of Capricornus 3.0
Sadalsuud in the left shoulder of Aquarius and known as the ‘Luckiest of the Lucky’. Aquarius is supposed to symbolise Ganymedes, a beautiful young male who was swooped upon and carried away by Jupiter’s Eagle. The Gods wanted good-looking cup-bearers to serve them. I guess these young studs thought it was an honor. Robson seems to think this star also causes ‘trouble and disgrace.’
Which might be related to whatever other services the young cup bearers had to provide the gods. Sadalsuud’s influences seem to cause domestic trouble, difficulties in marriage, intrigues, home wrecking, ‘peculiar marital conditions..’ etc… Maybe after serving gods, rustling up dinner for a mere human might seem a little lack lustre. This star feels chosen in some way, but feeling special can stir up envy from others.
Deneb Algedi is next door to Nashira in the fish-tail of the Goat, The ‘Fortunate one’ and ‘Bringer of good news’ It seems to sway between one extreme to another as Robson finds “It is said to cause beneficence and destructiveness, sorrow and happiness, and life and death.” Deneb Algedi is also known as the “Judicial Point of the Goat”. The goat has a strong air of authority and can be quite judgemental and critical of others who do not share their high standards.
Aquarius 24º 50’ ~ Sador in the breast of Cygnus the Swan 2.3
Sador is found in the breast of Cygnus the Swan “Cygnus gives a contemplative, dreamy, cultured and adaptable nature. The affections are ill regulated and unsteady, the talents develop late. There is some love of water and swimming and the arts.” Jupiter’s Eagle snatched Ganymede (Aquarius), and the Swan is yet another bird associated with nymph-chasing Jupiter. This time the swan is one of Jupiter’s famous animal disguises. Jupiter took the form of a swan to seduce Leda Queen of Sparta Like with the foal (See Feb 10) there is a connection to the Gemini twins here too as Leda after sleeping with both her husband and Jupiter on the same night, gave birth to two eggs. One egg was fathered by Jupiter and contained Pollux the dark twin while the other egg was fathered by Leda’s husband and contained Castor the mortal twin. Inspiration in the arts seems to be fuelled by this twin influence of human imagination combined with divine inspiration.
