Weekly Fixed Stars ~ Birthdays February 19 to 28

Pisces Decan 1 ~ Feb 19 to 28 2018. 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.

The tarot card associated with this decan is the 8 of cups “Much inner and outer work needs to be done. You might feel the need to withdraw from the rat race to focus on what is of true worth and to hear your inner voice. The Eight of Cups does not imply that your Personal Journey will be easy as many superficial and shallow layers will have to be peeled away before you will find your Personal Truth and Spiritual Core.” ~ teachmetarot .

Muses, Fairytales & The Bohemian Dream

This zone is a bohemian artists dream, where one can catch the muses and write inspiring music, art, and poetry. Here one can absorb, blend into the landscape and be receptive to the flow of inspiration from the collective. But oh so sensitive, there can be the problem of feeling other peoples pain. Pisces decan 1 are great empaths, but prone to self-medication when they take on too much of other peoples woes.

February 19/20

Pisces 1º 53’ ~ Enif in Pegasus the Flying Horses nose.* 2.5

Enif is found in Pegasus’s nose and has its head firmly stuck in the clouds. Robson says the constellation as a whole “gives ambition, vanity, intuition, enthusiasm, caprice and bad judgment.” Noonan says “The constellation portends events concerning ships and the ocean and also changes in the weather. In medieval times it was said to indicate vain individuals with a great deal of ambition, but with very poor judgment.” For Enif specifically it brings “Danger in battle.” [1]

February 21/22

Pisces 3º 46’  ~ Sadalmelik in Aquarius’ right shoulder. 3.2
Pisces 3º 52’  ~ Fomalhaut in Pisces Austrinus the Southern Fish. 1.5

Sadalmelik in Aquarius’s shoulder is known as the ‘Luckiest of the Lucky’ and this seems to play out in general for this decan. Somehow these people just seem to float into fortune without making any great effort, much to the chagrin their industrious Saturnian friends. These cats always fall on their feet.

Strangely Robson seems to think this star “causes persecution, lawsuits, extreme and sudden destruction and the death penalty.” What I make of this is that this stars’ talents might attract envy, and they could be targets from those who have a more nefarious agenda and they could be set up as criminals. But I think the ‘death penalty’ scenario is taking that a bit too far. Having this on the south node though could point to a past life execution for high treason.

Fomalhaut as one of the archangel stars that can be extremely fortunate, but only if it uses its gifts with integrity and for the greater good. Otherwise Fomalhaut can be corrupt, fall into sorcery and be disgraced. That’s the feeling of the whole decan really. Water needs to be kept flowing since it can absorb negativity more than any other element and of course stagnant water becomes toxic very quickly.

Robson says Fomalhaut “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.” The Ebertins say “According to tradition, this star is of quite variable effect, either very good or very bad, depending on the overall cosmic structure. It is assumed, however, that the helpful influence is the greater one… Tied up with either Sun or Moon, the influence of Fomalhaut is said to be quite marked.” I have written a whole post dedicated to Fomalhaut.

February 23

Pisces 5º 20’  ~ Deneb Adige in the heart of Cygnus. 1.2

Deneb Adige insures that the artists among them make gains from their talent seeing this star has a fortunate influence over artistic or scientific pursuits. “To prove this, it is interesting to find several well known artists and writers, who could make good money with their art, be it manifold activities in the acting art or achieving record sales of their printed works.” This star is also known for unsteady affections being a late developer. They retain their childlike wonder at the world long past midlife, this may be because they have managed not to bare much responsibility for others, they travel light and float high. Robson says Deneb Adige gives “an ingenious nature and a clever intellect that is quick at learning.” [2]

February 24

Pisces 6º 50’  ~ Biham in Pegasus the Flying Horses head. 3.7

8 Of CupsBiham in the head of Pegasus, the other star in this constellation has no specific meaning. Anne Wright says “Pegasus is the winged white horse, son of Poseidon in the shape of a horse. At birth Pegasus sprang forth from the bloody neck of the Gorgon Medusa (Algol) when she was beheaded by the hero Perseus.”

Pegasus was birthed out of a wound, so there is the theme of the wounded healer about him emphasised by Manilus at the end of this paragraph “Pegasus the winged Horse will appear and gallop aloft in the heavens. It will bring forth people endowed with swiftness of movement and limbs alert to perform every task. One man will cause his horse to wheel round in caracoles, and proudly mounted on its back he will wage war from on high; horseman and soldier in one.”

Manilus goes on to say “Another will possess the ability to rob the racecourse of its true length such is his speed that he will seem to dissemble the movement of his feet and make the ground vanish before him. Who more swiftly could fly back from the ends of the earth as messenger or with light foot to the earth’s ends make his way?  He will also heal a horse’s wounds with the sap of common plants, and will know the herbs which bring aid to an animal’s limbs and those which grow for the use of man.” Pegasus is also concerned with swift messaging, so in modern terms, this would mean the internet.

February 25

Pisces 7º 00’  ~  Gamma Sculptor  in Sculptor 4.5
Pisces 7º 14’  ~ Beta Sculptor in Sculptor. 4.4

There are two stars in constellation Sculptor here. I threw them in because although they are not particularly bright, they do add to the artistic theme of this decan. Sculpting has both the attributes of Saturn  clay) and Jupiter (creator) which rule this decan. “Pygmalion is the name of a sculptor who created an ivory statue, or sculpture, named Galatea (‘milk-white’), and fell in love with it. He offered the statue presents and prayed to Venus, Venus brought the statue to life…Sculptor contains the south galactic pole of the Milky Way.” ~ Anne Wright. Yes these subjects can sure put their love on a plinth.

February 26/27/28

Pisces 8º 52’  ~ Skat in Aquarius’ shin bone. 3.5

Skat in Aquarius is found on the shin bone of the water bearer. It is another one of the prophetic stars in the list, it also gives “good fortune and lasting happiness and also it is said to indicate safety in a deluge”. It’s another one of the stars that give luck with the opposite sex. I think this section looks great for marrying into wealth. Here we might find the glamorous, charming trophy spouse. On the more ethical side this might allow someone to be free to pursue their art through having a very wealthy and supportive partner.
