Altair, total freedom of movement

Altair is the brightest star in the constellation Aquila "The Eagle". The arabs called النسر الطائر elnars-el-tair (the great flying eagle), from whom the name Altair derived during the medieval age.
 

It is 16 light years away from the solar system. It has a volume four times greater than the Sun. It occupies the 12th place in the order of brightness of all the stars in the sky. It has an apparent magnitude of +0.76.
 

The rotation period is only 6 hours and 30 minutes and its equatorial peripheral layers move at the speed of 286 km/s, near the containment limit at about 400 km/h. Has one of the higher rotational speeds known, only under the neutron stars and white dwarfs. Due to the enormous centrifugal forces, the star has acquired a flattened form, with an equatorial diameter of 20% higher than at the poles. Its rapid axial rotation, is probably related with its youth: it has an age of only 630 million years old.
 

It has a declination of +8º and it is located at 1º of Aquarius. Photometric observations were made during the sixties and between the years 1999-2001 and 2005-2007.

The quality of the star Altair reminds our Sun and the planet Mercury. The first photometric observations clashed with the popularization of the car as a form of transport, which was not constrained by the fixed routes of the tram or bus; while the following photometric observtions clashed with the appearance of video games as "Beyond Good & Evil" (PS2, 2004), "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas" (PS2, 2004) and "Assassin's Creed" (PS3, 2007), whose main innovation was the concept of "open world" (sandbox), which gives to the player the ability to move with total freedom in the virtual world of the game and act in the environment in many ways.

The creators of the game "Assassin's Creed" (PS3, 2007) were inspired by the mythology of the eagle while designing the protagonist, so that it is also called Altair. The player can move through the streets of the city, climb almost any building and jump from one rooftop to another to arrive to any part. He can also move from one town to another riding a horse.

Like the mythological image of the flying eagle, Altair provides total autonomy and freedom of movement to carry out any matter.

Matt Damon, actor of the "Jason Bourne" movies, has Altair in the cusp of the 2nd House of the Moon-Nodes Horoscope, in trine with Mercury in the 6th nodal House.

Tom Hanks, an actor in the movies "Forrest Gump" (1994) and "Catch Me if You Can" (2002), has Altair in the 11th House of the Moon-Node Horoscope in the Crossing Point of the Ages Progressions (Signs Horoscope / Moon-Node Horoscope), in opposition to Uranus in the 5th nodal House.

Jennifer Connelly, actress of the movie "Labyrinth" (1986), has Altair in the overlap zone of the 1st and 2nd Houses of the Moon-Node Horoscope, in sextile with Neptune in the overlap zone of the 3th and 4th nodal Houses.

Aldebaran, amazing physical skills

Aldebaran is the brightest star in the constellation of Taurus and the 13th most brilliant star in the night sky. It has an apparent magnitude of +0.85 and its color is red orange. It is located at a distance of 65 light years. It has a radius 44 times greater than the sun. If it was situated at the center of the solar system, it would extend to the middle of the orbit of Mercury. Due to its large size, it is 425 times brighter than the Sun, but its density is less than that the Sun.

Comparison between Aldebaran and the Sun
Unlike most of the giant oranges, which at its core are fusing helium into carbon and oxygen, Aldebaran is still in its preliminary stage in which the inert helium core still would be in the process of contract and heat up, causing that, on the whole, the star will expand and increase in brightness. Within only a few million years, the star will reach a luminosity 800 times greater than the Sun, moment in wich will start the burning of helium and will slow down the contraction of the core, which will lead to a drop in its brightness.
Aldebaran is a binary system: the giant star has a distant and companion, Aldebaran B, of magnitude +13,50. It is a red dwarf, whose mass may be only 15 % of the mass of our Sun and its radio the 36 % of the solar radius. Its current separation of Aldebaran is of 609 AU.


In 1997 it was announced the discovery of a giant planet, Aldebaran b, of about 9.5 Jupiter masses, in orbit around the star. The discovery was doubtful and was not confirmed until 2015.
 

Photometric observations were made in the years 1921, 1978, 1993, 2000, 2007, 2011 and 2015.

Because of its closeness to the ecliptic, it is frequently hidden by the Moon.
  
It has a declination of +16º and is located at the grade 9º of Gemini.
 

The name Aldebaran comes from Arabic, al-dabarān الدبران, whose meaning is "The Follower".
 


Aldebaran is a star that reminds the quality of the planet Mars. Unlike in athletics, where a physical test is established, for which it has been tried repeatedly, Aldebaran gives an amazing degree of skill in physical actions for which there is no precedent, for example in a struggle against another living being, or during an unexpected physical accident.

Etamin, intuitive understanding of the physical universe and its natural laws

Etamin is the brightest star in the constellation of the Dragon. It is a giant orange, located in the head of the constellation. Has an apparent magnitude of +2,24 and it is located at 148 light-years away from the Solar System, but it comes toward us; so that, within 1.5 million years ago, it will be just 28 light years far and then it will be, along with Sirius, the brightest star in the night sky. Its radius is 50 times larger than that of the Sun and its luminosity is 600 times greater than that of the Sun.In 1728, James Bradley, while trying to measure the parallax of this star, discovered the aberration of light caused by the speed of the motion of the Earth in relation to the speed of light coming from the stars. This discovery proved the Copernican theory that the Earth revolves around the Sun.

It has a declination of +51º and it is located at the degree 27º of Sagittarius.

The name of Etamin comes from Arabic Al Rās al Tinnīn, whose meaning is "snake".
 


Etamin is related with intuitive understanding of the physical universe and its natural laws, through extrasensory perception.

Albert Einstein, which formulated the Theory of Relativity, has Etamin in Sagittarius and in the 6th House. In the House Horoscope forms a square with Uranus in the 3rd House.

Edgar Cayce, seer who performed physical and spiritual readings in a state of deep trance, has Etamin in Sagittarius and in the cusp of the 5th House. In the Signs Horoscope forms a trine with Chiron in Aries, while in the House Horoscope forms a triseptile with Pluto in the cusp of the 10th House.

Spica, inner strength to cope with the difficult moments in life

Spica is the brightest star in the constellation Virgo. Has an absolute magnitude of +1.04 and it is at 250 light years from Earth. It is a binary system, whose components orbit between them every four days. The tidal forces distort the ellipsoid form, according to the variations of gravitational interaction.The close proximity between them (0.12 AU), also causes the collision of strong stellar winds send out by each one of them, which scatters the light rays and generates intense X-ray The overall brightness is around 12000 times more than the sun. Has a high rotation speed: 199 km/s.

Because of the nearness to the ecliptic (2º), Spica can be hidden by the Moon and sometimes by planets. In November 2009, Venus came very close to Spica (3.5º); the last occultation occurred in November 1783. Between 1966 and 1970, there were important photometric observations.


It has a declination of -11º and it is located at the degree 23º of Libra.

The name Spica derives from Latin spica virginis (virgin ear of grain). Due to its separation from the closest stars, in Arabic was called Azimech, السماك الأعزل al simak al a'zal, which meant 'the Undefended'. In Egypt was known as 'the bearer of the Lute'; and in China, as 'the horn' or 'the pointer'.


The quality of the star Spica reminds the planet Jupiter. It is related with the inner strength that allows to cope with the difficult moments in life, overcoming despair with patience and hope. 


In traditional astrology, the quality of the star Spica is associated with the planets Venus and Mars, due to the fact that relationships can overcome couple crisis, reaching maturity and fullness, like in the movies "The Painted Veil" (2006) and "The Longest Ride" (2015).


Nicholas Sparks, author of the book "The Longest Ride" (2013), has Spica in Libra in the 8th Moon-Node House, in trine with Jupiter in Gemini in the 12th Moon-Node House, and in trine with the Black Moon in Aquarius in the 4th Moon-Node House.

Naomi Watts, actress of the movie "The Painted Veil" (2006), has Spica in Libra in the 6th Moon-Node House, in opposition to Saturn in Aries in the 12th Moon-Node House, whom it is in quincunx to Pluto in Virgo in the 7th Moon-Node House, and whom it is in sextile with Neptune in Scorpio in the 5th Moon-Node House.

Betelgeuse, ability to work under a lot of pressure

Betelgeuse is a red supergiant star type, located in the constellation of Orion. It is the 9th brightest star in the sky, with an absolute magnitude of -5.5. It is located 640 light years from Earth. Its mass is about 20 times that of the Sun and its size about 600 times greater. If it was located at the center of our solar system, its size would extend beyond the orbit of Mars.

At the end of its life, Betelgeuse will explode as a supernova of type II.

It is surrounded by a complex nebula, formed by silicates and galactic dust, expelled by the star during stellar flares, which extends to a distance of about 400 AU. In 2010 observations, a weak magnetic field was detected on the surface of Betelgeuse, with the form of dynamo, generated by the massive movements of convection. Something that was already suspected since the year 2002, on the basis of computer simulation models.


It has a declination of +7º and it is located at the degree 28º of Gemini.

Its original name derives from the Arabic الجوزا يد yad-jawzā, which means 'the hand of Jauza'. During Middle Ages, when the name of the star was transcribed to latin, it became "Bedalgeuze". During the Renaissance, it is thought that its original name could have been "Bayt al-jauza", which in Arabic means "the shoulder of Jauza", which led to the current form: "Betelgeuse".

In mythology it is associated with heavy rain and storms.

The quality of the star Betelgeuse reminds to our Sun and the astrological aspect of square. It is related with the ability to work under a lot of pressure, so that, as far as possible, the ongoing activities can be carried out with relative normality, in spite of the fact that the strain of the situation is extraordinary, like in the movie "Crimson Tide" (1995) and at the end of the movie "The Sum of All Fears" (2002).

Tracy Marks, author of the book "Planetary Aspects: An Astrological Guide to Managing the T-Square", has Betelgeuse in Gemini on the cusp of the 10th Moon-Node House, in square with the Crossing Points of the Age Progressions (Signs Horoscope / Moon-Node Horoscope), and in trine with Jupiter in Aquarius in the 2nd Moon-Node House.

Keanu Reeves, actor of the movie "Speed" (1994), has Betelgeuse in the Ascendant of the Moon-Node Horoscope (with Saturn in the cusp of the 5th Moon-Node House).

Akira Toriyama, author of the manga "Bola de Dragon" (1984), has Betelgeuse at the Descendant of the Moon-Node Horoscope.

Procyon, ability to create a method or system

Procyon is the most brilliant star of the constellation Canis Minor, with an apparent magnitude of +0.50. It is located at a distance of 11 light years from Earth. It has a radius twice as large as the sun.

It is a binary subgiant that has begun to expand. His companion is a weak white dwarf located at 15 AU, with an eccentric orbit that ranges from 9 UA to 21 UA (equivalent to the distance of Saturn and Uranus from the Sun). Photometric observations were made in 1979, 1999-2000 and 2004.

It has a declination of +5º and is located at 25º Cancer.

The name Procyon derives from the Greek προκύον (Prokyōn), which means "before the Dog" (Syrian was the Star of the Dog). In the Mesopotamian mythology, Procyon was known as Nagar the carpenter, an aspect of Marduk, involved in the construction and organization of the celestial sky.

Procyon
is a star that reminds the quality of the planets Saturn and Pluto. It gives the ability to create a method or system.


Bruno Huber, astrologer who created the Huber method, has Procyon in cancer in trine with Venus in Scorpio.

Lev Vygotsky, researcher of developmental psychology and founder of the cultural-historical psychology, has Procyon in Cancer in trine with the Sun, Uranus and Saturn in Scorpio.
