Castor Astrology

Castor, Alpha Geminorum, 20°22' Cancer, the star on the head of the Western Twin (in capite Gemini praecedentis), or Apollo, from Ras-Algeuze: according to Ptolemy, Castor is of the nature of Mercury, according to Leowicz, of the nature of Mercury and Jupiter, and according to Julevno, it is of the nature of Mars, Venus, and Saturn, and it. The most important stars from Gemini, in the order of magnitude are: Castor, Pollux, Alhena, Wasat, Mebsuta and Tejat. 13.1 Castor – 200 Cancer 24′, Pollux – 230 Cancer 22′ Castor is the brightest star from Gemini, located in the head of northern twin, Pollux the second brightest star from Gemini, located in the head of the southern twin.

Mars retrograde may be over, but it isn’t really finished until Mars has exited the “retrograde patch,” that span of 0-to-19 degrees of Fixed signs he’s been in for the last 2 months. So themes of anger management, self-assertion and the need to be a hero will pervade the atmosphere through May 17 and I’m continuing my thread about the virtues of a hero as told through classical Greek and Roman mythology. Today’s heroic virtue is alliance—that connection that people develop when they’ve gone through battles together. The best example I can think of is the myth of a pair of brothers called Castor and Pollux.

Legends of Castor & Pollux: “I’ve Got Your Back, Brother”
Castor and Pollux were identical twin brothers, born of a single egg after their mother Leda had an encounter with Jupiter in the form of a swan. Yep. Classical mythology is full of this kind of stuff—it’s best not to take it too literally. Castor took after mom and was mortal while Pollux took after dad and was immortal. The boys grew up together and did everything together, despite the huge rift between them—that Castor was always destined for death while Pollux was going to live forever.

The Twins engaged in battle side by side on many occasions, including the Trojan War, which was fought over their stunning sister Helen. During one battle Castor was slain and fell right next to his brother. Castor’s soul was carried away to the underworld, as inevitably happens to all mortals. Pollux was inconsolable and begged their father Jupiter to take his immortality, so that he might join his twin in the underworld. Jupiter relented and placed the two devoted brothers among the stars as the constellation Gemini.

Heroic Virtue #4: Alliance
We joke about male bonding, but there is a special connection formed between warriors who hold each others’ lives in their hands. It is a bond that can last a lifetime and does not lessen with the passage of time. It is not a sexual bond, nor a familial one, but a bond of brotherhood or sisterhood forged between two who are not related. It is a bond of shared experience and stress.

But to gain a brother, you must be a brother. If you can be an ally and you can win an ally to your side, you are rich indeed. Without alliance, you must fight your life’s battles alone.

What does it mean to have someone’s back?
Do you have a comrade-at-arms that you can absolutely depend on?
Whose back have you got? Who can depend on you?

Here is a list of the most common fixed stars and their interpretation that are used in astrology charts.

Castor Astrology

The fixed star needs to be within one degree and in conjunction to one of your personal planets to have impact. Also realize that these intense meanings are not to be taken literally, such as for Caput Algol, the fixed star of beheading. If you have Algo on your Venus, for example, then you could be prone to “lose your head” when it comes to love affairs. The 4 Persian Royal Fixed stars used to be at the solstice and equinox points, however due to the precession of the equinox they are now at different positions.

The important fixed stars used in chart interpretation.
