Fomalhaut

The fixed star Fomalhaut is positioned at 3º 52′ Pisces in the southern fish. It is situated in its eye and the fish itself, which is found at the foot of the water bearer. Originally this star was part of the constellation Aquarius as Greek Astronomer Aratus mentions in 270 bc. Fomalhaut is “One large and bright by both the Pourer’s (Aquarius) feet.” To me it makes sense Fomalhaut being part of Aquarius, as then it forms part of the fixed cross of the four Archangels; Michael (Aldebaran), Raphael (Regulus) and Oriel (Antares).Fomalhaut is Gabriel, the human. The others are beasts…

Eric Morse says “Regulus was long considered the supreme of the Four Guardians but the role of Fomalhaut – Gabriel, in the birth of Jesus – must now be said to challenge or actually supplant, with a new stage in human spiritual evolution, the supremacy of the more ‘medical’ Archangel of the Leonine era.”

Regulus is in the process of moving into Virgo, another human. So it too is evolving away from it’s bestial past.

FomalhautIt was Ptolemy who put Fomalhaut in its own constellation of the fish. The Southern fish is nothing to do with the Piscean fishes, although Fomalhaut is said to have an influence similar to Pisces. Confusing isn’t it?…This star is already slipping away from us. Fomalhaut has a very mixed influence in terms of how fortunate it is considered as a star. Rather like Neptune, it can be magical and highly spiritual or just a no good, unscrupulous drunk. All the royal stars have the capability for glory, honor, riches and fame, but they also have the greatest height to fall from. Their incredible power must be used wisely and with integrity.

With Fomalhaut on the AC and in good aspect, it is supposed to give one fame that lasts beyond the grave. Fomalhaut is also said to have the nature of Mercury and Venus, so art and writing are well starred. Out of the four Archangels, Fomalhaut is definitely the poetic artist, magician and most probably a pacifist. The others are all beastly warriors. As ever, this Venusian side to Fomalhaut that makes him a little suspect to a dog-eat-dog world, Robson says… “It is said to be very fortunate and powerful and yet to cause malevolence of sublime scope and character, and change from a material to a spiritual form of expression.” 1. Don’t trust the spaced out angel with the sparkly purple wings then…

Fomalhaut In Astrology

Fomalhaut is enchanted and intoxicated by love and life. This star governs the winter solstice, so like Jesus it contains the hope of being reborn. Fomalhaut has lofty ideals, the kind that believes love will conquer all. Often these people fall hopelessly in love with someone, but the road to them is strewn with trails and obstacles. Romeo probably had Venus on Fomalhaut.

However if Folalhaults hearts are pure then the impossible love is often won. This goes for their everyday life too, these misty-eyed dreamers are often not taken seriously. That is until they are found at  the top of their tree, still gazing wistfully into the clouds, much to the changrin of their contemporaries. These fishes seem to have got there as if by magic, indeed they probably have. I can see why their rivals may be a wee bit suspicious, “by what witchcraft did they get there?!”

For Fomalhaut though, selling it’s soul to the devil is precisely what it cannot do if they don’t want to end up incarcerated. These folk will topple right down into the gutter if they seek fame for their own personal glory. It must all be done for love of their craft and for the benefit of the greater good.

Fomalhauts nemesis is hubris, if they have some sort of saviour complex then the immortal name that this star promises will more likely be that of infamy. I think it is interesting that TV Evangelist Jim Bakker has Fomalhaut just 2 mins off his AC and Guru Osho has it on his MC.

Both had their halos torn off, Bakker by a sex scandal and Osho by various attempts to debunk him. Osho was constantly hounded by the US Police, (arrested for visa application fraud) and his teachings were rejected by his home country. Both these Gurus serve as great examples of Fomalhaut in action.

One of Fomalhauts traits is finding it hard to keep grounded in the physical world. They have a otherworldly, “away-with-the-fairies” demeanour and may find it so painful to be on this planet that the temptation is to take-off altogether with mind-altering substances or pain-relievers.

Some of the celebrities below have had their problems with addiction. John Coltrane’s free-Jazz was spiritual and elevating,but to get their he battled with heroin addiction and alcoholism. In 1957 however, a religious experience was thought to have enabled him to get over his addictions and after his death he was actually worshipped as a deity in various churches in the US. Fomalhaut redemption.

    The late Whitney Huston had Uranus on her desc opp Fomalhaut. Alongside other things, it may have contributed to her self destruct with drugs issue.
    I notice Bobby Brown has Uranus 4 libra so that squares her Fomalhaut. I’ll make further comments about their synastry in the right thread. But for this one, Whitney seems to have shown both sides of Fomalhaut, swinging between her beautiful appearance and voice and her Algol headed mad woman. I know were not supposed to acknowledge progression and fixed stars but her pr AC is conj natal Algol. I can’t help but say how much she resembled a snake headed monster when she was off her face.
    RIP Whitney, what a tough karma you struggled with.

      Fomalhaut……………….

      In Arabic means Foum al-Hout “fish mouth.” Combines Mercurial, Venusian qualities mixed with neptunianskim influence. In keeping with tradition, the effect of this star variable: it ranges from very good to very bad, depending on the overall structure of the space. However, it is considered that a positive effect prevails if there is a relationship with Mercury, because it stimulates the development of intellectual abilities, and promises made in writing and research. The Ascendant and good aspect contributes to fame name that will survive this century. When Venus makes progress in art. The conjunction with Jupiter or meridians contributes to the patronage of the church hierarchy. In combination with the sun or moon, the star has a more pronounced effect.

      Neptune Fomalhaut (April 18-July 24): Neptune Fomalhaut’la become a part of, see it as very important and distinctive. Since this star, Royal Star is one of four important. Berdadette Brady for Fomalhaut, said: “The other three, that Royal Star, these stars are also promises of success, but people will not catch on because of the star. This star, associated with ideals and dreams. Ideals and dreams scams, can great personal happiness achieved. But the corrupt ideals and dreams, then it will be great losses and confusion. Provides great creativity and inspiration. People who have a mystical power and glory only for himself but for other uses will bring great success. Person of influence of this star is required to act honestly “Alvidas:” .. This star is said to be very happy and powerful, but also can lead to great evils, and the way that material can be maneviye “So this time, we like the noble and idealistic own purposes, something very important. In this way, and, more happily, and the ideal can be served. From the material, rather than move to a process of spiritual profit from what is important. So we wait for the material fallible luck.

      When I first saw this post I didn’t even know she had died! One wonders what orb to give these fixed stars. If we use Robson’s criteria “For a 1st magnitude star, 7’30″ and William Lily 5º for 1st and 2nd Mag stars. As as 1st mag star Whitney would’ve had Fomalhaut rising! Plus is a royal star so I reckon that strengthens the case. Certainly so true of her.
      Looking at the rest of her chart everything supports it. I note she has a Lilith/Neptune conjunction. Forbidden fruit, but also musically gifted. Refined voice. She also has Pluto/Mercury in the 7th on Zosma. Victim or Saviour of her spouse… Transits on the outside Mars retrograde square her MC. Transiting Nodes square her Pluto/Mercury on Zosma conjunction. Transiting Pluto square Mars. You cant see on this chart but she actually has a Yod to Eris from Lilith/Neptune sextile Pluto/Mercury.

      ALSO: Neptune/Lilith on Alphecca in the crown! (The Diva) ” domestic disharmony and peculiar features in connection with marriage, not very favorable for children, many changes, much travel by water in early life, many enemies, liable to heart ailments, SUDDEN OR VIOLENT DEATH. [Robson*, p.132.]

      There was also the Lunar Eclipse in December on her IC the “End of the matter”. Fundamental change from the roots up. Unfortunately with Whitney she didn’t change her lifestyle, so the inevitable happened. Hoedus II…… “These abandon themselves to playful sport and nimble activity, and spend their youth in fickle loves. Though honor never inspires them to shed their blood, LUST OFTEN DRIVES THEM TO DO SO, and their base desires cost even their lives; to perish thus is their least disgrace, since their triumph is a triumph of vice.” Manilus

      How wretched. – I’m struck by the heart ailments bit -broken heart mist have contributed to her problems – but my Chinese doc who is a genius told me that people who sing a lot weaken their hearts and are always at risk of heart atack. This may be an over abundance of emotion, as great singers seem to be able to magnify joy and pathos.

      Re: Progressed angles & the fixed stars
      I share Robson’s (Vivian Robson: “Fixed Stars and Constellations in Astrology”) view that when angles, Lots or planets progress to the place of the star, the star has a modifying effect. HOWEVER, as with progressions (and profections and SR’s) in general, NOTHING that is not already indicated (as potential) in the radical (natal) chart, can result from the progression, so, for example, unless Algol already had a relationship established in the natal chart, the progression to Algol of an angle or planet would not bring into play a major Algol effect that would suddenly change the trends and directions seen in the natal chart. It would have a certain modifying effect, but would not spin the life in a brand new direction; same goes for all the stars (in my understanding of this subject)

      I CANT HELP BUT SEE THE FIXED STARS AS A RELEVANT FACTOR IN THE OBSERVATION OF THE PROGRESSED CHART.I AM PLAYING CLOSE ATTENTION TO MY PROGRESSED CHART AS I SEE IT HOLDING THE POTENTIAL OF REWARDS OR CONSEQUENCES FROM THE LESSONS LEARNED,OR NOT,FROM THE GRAND CROSS OF THE NATAL,IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE SAME AS THE CROSS IS WITH ME TILL THE LAST BREATH.

      I’M LOOKING AT SOME MAJOR SHIFTING IN MY PROGRESSED OF SOME MAJOR STARS TO CRITICAL POINTS,WHERE IN MY NATAL THEY DO NOT HAVE SUCH PLACEMENTS.EMPHASIS IN THE NATAL WAS INTENSE RE:ASPECTS/ANGLES/PLANETS,BUT NOW THE STARS HAVE MOVED ON TO SOME OF THOSE POINTS & I’M LOOKING FOR ANSWERS.WILL THERE BE A AN OBSERVABLE EFFECT IF THERE WAS NONE IN THE NATAL?

      WHAT DETERMINES THE OUTCOMES….?SPINS THE LIFE IN A NEW DIRECTION….?NO MATTER THE CHART……?THE SAME AS IT EVER WAS.THAT WHICH WE ALL HAVE…..THE WILL TO CHOOSE TO GO BEYOND OUR LIMITATIONS WE HAVE CREATED AND GROW/EVOLVE NEW POTENTIALS.

      Excellent chart! Chiron is on Fomalhaut right now too. Exact on February 7, which would have been when Marina started her research. Most interesting given the religious theme seeing Chiron representing Christ.

    A friend has sun at 4 Pisces 29′, square Neptune. Everything you say is true about the magic, creativity, idealism and pursuit of love but brought down by inescapable childhood abuse, drink, drugs and self destruction.

      Yep, Fomalhaut beautifully put in a nut-shell there. It’s a tough one and sad for your friend. Is there any chance of redemption there? I’m thinking of Johnny Cash.

      There is always hope in the presence of an human angel, just as courageous as a non human angel :) Never fear the good you see but just be weary of the falsities of the devil and the reward will be like nothing on earth :)

    Funny that Michael, the Archangel of the element of FIRE and of (Mercury-ruled) Hod on the Tree of Life AND the Angel of the last decan of Aquarius is associated with TAURUS.
