Aquarius Decan 1 ~ Jan 20 to 30 2017. The weekly horoscope runs as an Egyptian week, ie 10 days. It will start as the Sun moves into a new decan and looks at what fixed stars it hits during the decanate week. The star interpretations are written for those born with their Sun on that degree, but the general mood of the day will carry that flavour too.

Aquarius 0º 56′ ~ Tarazed in Aquilla the Eagle 2.8 *
Tarazed is a bright orange star found in back of the Eagle this and the pale orange star Alshain flank the main star of the eagle Altair. Robson says “No astrological influence was suggested for this constellation by the ancients, but it seems to have been associated with the ideas of passion, love and friendship” . We all know Aquarians in general love their friends. Robson goes on to say “It has also been said to give a love of swimming, and to be connected with certain sex irregularities, catamite-pedophilia associations, involving young boys and older men..”
Aquarius 1º 04′ ~ Sham in Sagitta the Arrow 4.4
Aquarius 1º 15′ ~ Albireo in Cygnus the Swan 3.2
Sham in Sagitta. This constellation depicts the arrow that brought down the eagle (Aquila) “It is said to give a keen mind with ability for abstract thought and teaching or writing, irritability, jealousy and danger of hostility and bodily harm.” Albireo in constellation Cygnus is one of the most beautiful stars in the sky since it twinkles gold and azure. Like the Eagle, this is yet another constellation that represents nymph chaser Jupiter since Zeus took the form of a swan to seduce Leda. Robson says it “It gives a handsome appearance, neatness, a lovable disposition and beneficence in despair.”
Aquarius 1º 47′ ~ Altair in the heart of Aquila the eagle 0.7
Aquarius 2º 25′ ~ Alshain in the back of Altair the Eagle 3.9
Every constellation has a negative side and powerful Aquila is no exception. Regarding the positive sides Robson says “It is said to give great imagination, strong passions, indomitable will, a dominating character, influence over others, clairvoyance, a keen penetrating mind and ability for chemical research.” The main star in Aquila is Altair “It confers a bold, confident, valiant, unyielding, ambitious and liberal nature, great and sudden but ephemeral wealth, and a position of command, makes its natives guilty of bloodshed, and gives danger from reptiles.”
I have written a whole post on Altair. Some of my keywords “Valiant, brave, daring, provocative, pushy, ambitious, inspirational, guiding light, catalyst, booster, motivator, muse, ingenuity, rash, far sighted, visionary, planning ahead, on-the-ball, on-the-money, challenging, rash, hasty, impulsive, fast-as-lightning, fast-paced, chivalrous, sweeping you off your feet, flashy, dramatic…”
Alshain is the beta star in Aquilla but it is not the second brightest. Still it is a lovely pale orange colour. Manilus says of Aquilla generally “The Eagle, soars to the heights, the bird of mighty Jupiter carrying thunderbolts…. This bird brings back the thunderbolts which Jupiter has flung and fights in the service of heaven. He that is born on earth in the hour of its rising, will grow up bent on spoil and plunder, won even with bloodshed; he will draw no line between peace and war…”
“He is a law unto himself, and rushes violently wherever his fancy takes him;…. Yet, should perchance his aggressiveness be enlisted in a righteous cause, depravity will turn into virtue, and he will succeed in bringing wars to a conclusion and enriching his country with glorious triumphs.” This person will need to have a mission in life and be fighting for the greater good, otherwise the negative side of this constellation can be very destructive to themselves and others.
Aquarius 3º 46′ ~ Giedi Prima in the horns of Capricornus the Goat 4.6
Aquarius 3º 50′ ~ Giedi Secunda in the horns of Capricornus the Goat 3.8
Giedi Prima and Giedi Secunda are two stars in the right horn of Capricornus the goat. These stars glow, yellow, ash and lilac. Capriciorn is actually a sea goat with a fishes tail. He is said to be Pan who fled to Egypt chased by Typhon. He escaped by turning his body into partly a goat and partly a fish. “Hence comes a restless quality in their lives and a mind which is often changed and floats this way and that; the first half of the sign is the slave of Venus, and that with guilt involved, but a more virtuous old age is promised by the conjoined fish below.”  Giedi Prima “It gives beneficence, sacrifice and offering.” Giedi Secunda is “ Associated with piety and self-sacrifice.”
