The 3rd Face Of Aquarius

 Moon’s Fixed Stars ~ Deneb Algedi & Sadalsuud

Moon Sadalsuud  “Reputation through occult matters, respect of friends, favourable for gain, peculiar domestic conditions.” 

Moon Deneb Algedi “Great difficulties in everything, success after patient plodding but final loss of position” “A story-teller, the use of story to promote greater awareness of humanity. One who is drawn to myths or stories that heal and teach.” [1]

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 honour. Robson seems to think this star also causes “trouble and disgrace.” which might be related to whatever other services the young full moon august 2019cup 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 lacklustre. 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.

Full Moon August 2019 Aspects

Moon opposite Venus will bring a bit of zest to what otherwise would be a soft, compliant, custard-pie combination. Having the two most feminine bodies in astrology in opposition makes for an interesting tug of war between glamorous, but impossibly-vain lovers and caring, self-sacrificing mothers.

Moon opposite Venus could well feel torn between her loving mothering duties and satisfying her sensual desires. When this happens, one end of the opposition gets projected. For example; career women and/or feminists opposing traditional/religious women. This will give us a strong polarity between the mistress and the wife at this Full Moon August 2019. There is definitely a kind of courtesan theme with both the Sadalsuud star and this aspect.

Moon opposite Venus does not go without its heartache. Sometimes these folk can suffer from bleeding heart syndrome, where their devotion knows no bounds, which can leave them feeling too drained. Their unconditional love is admirable, but they need to make sure they maintain a balance between how much they give and receive.

Full Moon Tarot Card

swords of 7The tarot card associated with decan is the seven of swords. This card is about plotting and can be quite sneaky. Successive past lives may have placed the native into such dire circumstances that they may have resort to breaking the law to survive. These folk learnt to live by their wits and built up a persona of the charming rogue.

“Being resourceful, thinking on your feet and trying to outsmart your opponent or competitor is part and parcel of everyday life and there are times  when we all have to try to get into someone’s head to find out what it is that makes them tick….  They spend a long time getting to know their opponent by watching and analysing their tactics so that they can go out and play a psychological game.” ~ Teachmetarot.

This fits with the ‘testing’ tendencies that this decan displays generally.
