Aquarius Decan 3 ~ Feb 10 to 19 2023. 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.
Horny Pan Pipers & Judge Mental
This is Aquarius at its most scientific and skeptical, but at the same time is open to explore other realms, it just needs to test them out first. This testing is very marked in everything they do. Aquarian decan 3 test limits, push boundaries and most of all test peoples patience!
Aquarius 21º 47’ ~ Nashira in the fish-tail of Capricornus. 3.8*
Nashira is found in the tail of the sea-goat. Robson says it “It causes overcoming by evil, which is turned to success, and gives danger from beasts.” What a strange interpretation! What beasts? Looks a bit like the transmutation of negative energy from nefarious entities to me. The Ebertins say “Dependent on its position in the chart it will bring a life full of change. According to Arabic tradition this star will make a native become a legal advisor or counselor and will give such a person the ability to hold a position of trust.
This star makes for integrity and justice and gives a knowledge of man. Therefore we see here a refining Saturn influence, this will be achieved if the natal Saturn is well placed.”  The knowledge of man is interesting too. Maybe these folk hold a certain amount of ancient gnosis, so that their ability as a “legal adviser” is more to do with innate ability to apply natural law fairly.
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.
Aquarius 27º 45’ ~ Gienah in the wing of Cygnus the Swan 2.6
Sador is next door to Gienah in the Swans wing. “Christians saw in Cygnus the Cross of Calvary, Christi Crux, or Crux cum S. Helena. This Cross is formed by alpha (Deneb Adige), gamma (this star Sador), eta, and beta (Albireo), marking the upright along the Galaxy, more than 20° in length, zeta, epsilon (Gienah), gamma this star, and delta being the transverse. Gamma marks the center of the Cross” . It is very easy to spot in the sky and to me the constellation really does look like a flying Swan rather than a cross (As Crux very obviously does.)
Manilus talks about the gifts of the arts (Artes.) that the swan brings. “From this constellation shall flow a thousand human skills (artes): its child will declare war on heaven and catch a bird in mid-flight, or he will rob it of its nestling, or draw nets up and over a bird whilst it is perched on a branch or feeds on the ground (swans had a reputation for being hostile to other birds). And the object of these skills is to satisfy our high living……such a man will impart to the birds of the air the language of men and what words mean; he will introduce them to a new kind of intercourse, teaching them the speech denied them by nature’s law.”
Aquarius 29º 10’ ~ Delta Hydrus in Hydrus the male water snake 4.2
Delta Hydrus in Hydrus. It is appropriate we get some mention of water here in the last moments of tropical Aquarius. “The link between hydrogen and water: In 1766-81, Henry Cavendish was the first to recognize that hydrogen gas was a discrete substance, and that it produces water when burned, a property which later gave it its name: in Greek, hydrogen means “water-former.” Let’s end it with farts since Aquarius is an air sign..
”This masculine Hydrus and the feminine Hydra are separate constellations. The etymology for these two constellations are intertwined. The word hydrogen could relate to either or both. Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe. Most of the Earth’s hydrogen is in the form of chemical compounds such as hydrocarbons and water. Hydrogen gas is produced by some bacteria and algae and is a natural component of flatus or flatulence.”
