Is it in Jyestha Nakshatra or now moved into Anuradha?

Earlier it was in Jyestha nakshatra, and now moved into Anuradha. (Now at 2020 – Sidereal 15’54 Scorpio – signed owned by Mars and Constellation owned by Saturn)

Navamsa- Scorpio (so the planet gets vargottam status)

Co rulers – Mars, Saturn, Jupiter and Mercury

A Royal Star. The Archangel Oriel, the Watcher of the West. Spirit of adventure, obsession, obstinacy, injuries to eyes, honors, sudden loss, stubborn, suspicious, violent, survivor, several marriages; a self-destructive bent, accidents, unforeseen happenings and a tendency to be a bit too liberal (in the sense of morality), mental alertness, strategic ability and courage and makes dare-devils(rebels, belligerent attitudes, etc). It can give rise in life, but also danger from violence and accidents. The person is often more secretive and private but very penetrating! Scorpio instincts (money, power, sex, war…)

“Robson says: “It causes malevolence, destructiveness, liberality, broad-mindedness, evil presages and danger of fatality and makes its natives rash, ravenous, headstrong and destructive to themselves by their own obstinacy.” Antares or anti-Ares, means the equivalent of Mars. This could be because, like Mars, it shimmers a blazing red colour in the sky and by all accounts its nature is similar to Mars too. Of course Mars is also the traditional ruler of Scorpio too. The Ebertins say “Antares makes people tough, belligerent and pugnacious. This is an important star for military personnel, it is said to convey mental alertness, strategic ability and courage to make daredevils”

Body Parts affected – Eyes, if Asc / Sun / Moon at this orb

Considered as Fortunate Star

It is exactly opposite Aldebaran (integrity in focus) Star in sidereal Taurus and travel in pairs ( Sort of  – Aldebaran and Antares being two sides of the same coin).  – (test of integrity VS obsession / survival)

17. Anuradha: The Star of Success (Scorpio 03 20’ to 16 40’)

Anuradha is symbolized by a lotus flower, reflecting the ability to blossom in any life situation. The primary deity is Mitra, the God of Friendship and Partnership. Anuradha individuals have the great ability to gather people together for social and spiritual activities. The spiritual teacher, Ram Dass has his natal Moon in this nakshatra. Anuradha has a deva temperament with the primary motivation of dharma or right action. The shakti is “the power of worship”. The ruling planet is Sani or Saturn, which gives tenacity and discipline when needed.

Anuradha Career Interests:

Organizational skills, business management.
Travel industry, conference planners.
Actors, musicians, public speakers.
Dentists, surgeons and medical technicians.
Mining Engineers, plumbers.
Criminal lawyers and political leaders.

Anuradha contains three stars in the body of the Scorpion including Alpha Centauri, the closest star to our solar system.

18. Jyeshtha: The Chief or Elder Star (Scorpio 16 40’ to 30 00’)

The symbols for Jyeshtha are an earring and an umbrella. The earring is a symbol of Vishnu’s discus, and the umbrella symbolizes protection and status. Jyeshtha also translates as the “eldest” or “seniormost”. It is related to the eldest sister Alakshmi, who is in the opposition constellation to Rohini, her beautiful sister located in Taurus. Issues with jealously and betrayal can be experienced here. Jyeshtha has a rakshasa nature with artha as the primary motivation. The chief deity is Indra, the King of the Gods. He is the spiritual warrior and “dragon slayer”. The shakti of this asterism is “the power to rise, conquer, and gain courage in battle”. The ruling planet, Mercury, reflects the troubled, yet creative genius of this lunar mansion. Albert Einstein, Friedrich Nietzsche, Howard Hughes and Vincent Van Gogh all had their natal Moons in this nakshatra. It is the nakshatra of the creative eccentric. The sharp Mars-like nature of

Jyeshtha Career Interests:

Self-employed, business managers.
Intellectuals, philosophers, researchers.
Musicians, dancers, modeling.
Military leaders, police detectives, shamans, athletes.
Engineering , mining and exploration.

Jyeshtha is reflected through the fixed star Antares, which is located in the heart of the Scorpion.

The older astrologers had dire and frightening things to say about Antares. For instance, Robson lists “malevolence, and destructiveness…evil presages and danger of fatality,” while also admitting “broad-mindedness, liberality,” the combination of these qualities sounding like the “Mars/Jupiter rulership Ptolemy assigns to Antares. Modern interpreters like Rosenburg says Antares offers the possibility of “power, authority and wealth” but there is also the “tendency to violence, suspicion and self-destructiveness.” Likewise, the nemesis that Brady links to all the Royal Stars manifests in the Antares people “creating drama simply for the thrill of intensity” which can cause the loss of the success of which they are capable.

Antares, Alpha Scorpii, 9°53′ Sagittarius, in between two other stars in the body (media in corpore trium), or Kalb Akrab, the Scorpio’s heart (cor Scorpii), Mars’ rival: according to Ptolemy, Antares is of the nature of Mars and Jupiter, according to Fludd, of the nature of Saturn and Mars, and according to Julevno, of the nature of Mercury and Mars. According to Fludd, Antares gives violence, ambition for power, and greed. According to Robson, it brings about self-destruction through one’s own obstinacy. According to Julevno, it causes success through efforts, followed by ruin and death. This star is almost as evil as Algol, and it is dangerous when it is in conjunction with the Sun, the Moon, the ruler of the Ascendant, the ruler of the 8th House, or when it is dominant on the Ascendant. It is all the more so if it is not well-aspected. If Antares is in very good celestial state, without dissonance, it may nonetheless bring about honour through courage and efforts.

Diana Rosenberg, one of the most knowledgeable fixed star astrologers, knew that Antares had strong connections with the great issues of humankind, especially intolerance, racism and human rights. In their nativities, Julius Caesar, Heinrich Himmler, Winston Churchill and Ayatollah Khomeini had strong Antares placements. History also shows that a prominent, angular Antares in mundane charts indicates extremism, radicalism, acts of terrorism, but also the possibility of natural catastrophes, like earthquakes, storms, or epidemics.”

 

Antares in the constellation of Scorpio is, as its name Ant-ares says, of Martian nature, but to this Mars nature, powers of Mercury, Jupiter and also Saturn are added. Antares makes people tough, belligerent and pugnacious. This is an important star for military personnel and is said to convey mental alertness, strategic ability and courage and to make daredevils, especially if tied up with the Midheaven, Ascendant, Sun or Jupiter.

If associated with Mars, courage is said to become foolhardiness, leading to increased dangers. Natives with this particular configuration have to be prepared at all times for sudden incidents and unforeseen events and potential accidents. According to tradition, Antares is of violent character and is credited with being significant for a violent death, either in battle or by process of law. On the other hand, danger may come about by fire, weapons or machinery. Antares is also said to be unfortunate for the eyes if conjunction the Ascendant, Moon or Sun.

 

Antares’ problem is being driven by high drama, sensation and extremes. Because if this they may find it hard to fine tune or be sensitive to life’s subtleties. If this brave, fearless spirit is channeled in the right way, then its energy can help move mountains. Antares works better in partnership with more laid-back souls who can temper the “devil” inside it. All energies are important in our Universe, it’s just a question of balance. Antares is needed when we get too compliant and accept other’s modus operandi too readily. This red star shakes us out of our complacency.

For the Persians, (who made Antares a royal star), there wasn’t much of the negativity attributed to it later on by the Greeks and Romans. Instead, Antares was very fortunate and gave eminence and achievements for humanity.

“It has been said that “Antares demands we ‘take a stand’ for our truth against the established conditions of our personal lives and against the established order or authority directing our lives when those conditions and that authority are no longer in our best interest nor supporting or evolutionary freedom.” souledout.org.

The main problem for spicy Antares is it’s quite a challenging star to live with at a day to day level, so people with it prominent should try to leave their battle armour outside the front door when they get home. Antares households have lots of spaghetti stuck to their kitchen ceiling, and very well worn bedsprings…

The history of the star: Antares

AntaresAlpha (α) Scorpius, Antares, is a red binary star, fiery red and emerald green, near the center of the constellation Scorpius and was sometimes called “the Heart of the Scorpion”.

Antares, the well-nigh universal title for this splendid star, is transcribed from the second-century Greek astronomer Ptolemy’s (Greek) Antares in the Syntaxis, and generally thought to be from {p.365} anti Ares, “similar to,” or the “rival of,” Mars, in reference to its color, — the Latin Tetrabiblos had Marti comparatur; or, in the Homeric signification of the words, the “equivalent of Mars,” either from the color-resemblance of the star to the latter, or because the astrologers considered the Scorpion the House of that planet and that god its guardian. Thus it naturally followed the character of its constellation,— perhaps originated it,— and was always associated with eminence and activity in mankind.

Dutch scholar Grotius (1583-1645), however, said that the word Antares signifies a Bat, which, as Vespertilio, Greek tragic poet Sophocles (496?-406 B.C.) perhaps called it; but the 17th century German astronomer Bayer erroneously quoted from Hesychios (5th century. AD.) (Greek) Antartes, a Rebel, and Tyrannus. The 17th century Dutch astronomer Caesius appropriately styled the constellation Insidiata, the Lurking One.

Others say that it was Antar’s Star,— but they forget the second-century Greek astronomer Ptolemy,—the celebrated Antar or Antarah [Antarah] who, just previous to the time of Muhammad, was the mulatto warrior-hero of one of the Golden Mu’allakat. [Muallaqat. Allen notes: These were the famous seven selected poems of Arabia, said to have been inscribed in letters of gold on silk, or Egyptian linen, and suspended, as their title signifies, in the Kabah at Mecca.]

Our word, however, is sometimes written Antar, which Beigel said is the Arabic equivalent of “Shone”; but the Latin translator of the 1515 Almagest connected it with Natar, Rapine, and so possibly explaining the generally unintelligible expression tendit ad rapinam applied to Antares in that work and in the Alfonsine Tables of 1521; or the expression here may refer to the character of Ares, the god of war. The Rudolphine Tables designated it as rutilans, Pliny’s (23-79 A.D.) word for “glowing redly.”

The Arabians’ Kalb al Akrab, the Scorpion’s Heart, which probably preceded the Kardia Skorpion and Cor Scorpii of Greece and Rome respectively, became, in early English and Continental lists, KelbalacrabCalbalacrabCalbolacrabiCalbalatrab, and Cabalatrab; the Italian astronomer Riccioli (1598-1671) having the unique Alcantub, although he generally wrote Kalb Aakrab.

This star Antares (α Scorpius) alone constituted the 16th manzil (Arabic Moon Mansion), Al Kalb, the Heart, one of the fortunate stations.

But the Chinese included sigma (σ) and tau (τ), on either side of Antares, for their sieu (Chinese Moon Mansion), the synonymous Sin, anciently Sam, sigma (σ) being the determinant; although Brown says that this Heart refers to that of Tsing Lung, the Azure Dragon, one of the four great divisions of their zodiac. They also have a record of a comet 531 B.C., “to the left of Ta Shin,” which last Williams identified with Antares; while, as the Fire Star, Who Sing, it seems to have been invoked in worship centuries before our era for protection against fire. With some adjacent it was one of the Ming t’ang, or Emperor’s Council-hall; his sons and courtiers, other stars, standing close by, to whom Antares, as Ta Who, announced the principles of his government.

The Hindus used alpha (α Antares), sigma (σ), and tau (τ) for their nakshatra (Hindu Moon MansionJyestha, Oldest, also known as Rohini, Ruddy, from the color of Antares, — Indra, the sky-goddess, being regent of the asterism that was figured as a pendent Ear Jewel.

It was one of the four Royal Stars of Persia, 3000 B.C., and probably the Guardian of the Heavens that Dupuis mentioned as Satevis; but, as their lunar asterism, it was Gel, the Red; the Sogdians (an Iranian people) changing this to Maghan sadwis, the Great One saffron-colored. The Khorasmians (east of Persia) called it Dharind, the Seizer; and the Copts (who are now the Christians in Egypt), Kharthian, the Heart.

It pointed out to the Babylonians their 24th ecliptic constellation, Hurru, of uncertain meaning, itself being Urbat according to an astrolabe discovered in the palace of Sennacherib and interpreted by the late George Smith; Brown, however, assigns this title to stars in Lupus (Lupus adjoins Scorpius). Other Euphratean names were Bilu-sha-ziri, the Lord of the Seed; Kak-shisa, the Creator of Prosperity, according to German Orientalist Peter Jensen (1861-1936), although this is generally ascribed to Sirius; and, in the lunar zodiac, Dar Lugal, the King, identified with the god of lightning, Lugal Tudda, the Lusty King. Naturally the inscriptions make much of it in connection with the planet Mars, their UI Suru, showing that its Arean association evidently had very early origin; and from them we read Masu (?) Sar, the Hero and the King, and Kakkab Bir, the Vermilion Star. Brown identifies it with the seventh antediluvian king, (the Greek word) Euedoranchos, or Udda-an-χu, the Day-heaven-bird.

In Egyptian astronomy it represented the goddess SelkitSelk-t, or Serk-t, heralding the sunrise through her temples at the autumnal equinox about 3700-3500 B.C., and was the symbol of Isis in the pyramid ceremonials (Isis, perhaps the Moon, is identified with a number of stars). Renouf included it with Arcturus in the immense figure Menat.

[Star NamesTheir Lore and Meaning, Richard Hinckley Allen, 1889].


This is one of the four key stars in the heavens, also called archangel stars. Michael (Aldebaran) watcher of the East. Gabriel (Fomalhaut) watcher of the South. Raphael (Regulus) Watcher of the North. Oriel (Antares) Watcher of the West. At one time they marked the two Equinoxes and two Solstices. Aldebaran marked the zero Aries point in 3044 BC, Antares marked zero Libra 3052 BC, Fomalhaut marked zero Capricorn, 2582 BC, Regulus marked zero Cancer 2345 BC. As one of the four Royal stars of Persia its name was Satevis; but, as their lunar asterism, it was Gel, the “Red” the Sogdians changing this to Maghan sadwis, the “Great One” saffron-colored. [The angel associations come from Eric Morse, The Living Stars, p.35. Allen’s explanation of these four stars on page 256 of Star Names]

These four stars have been characterized as Horses, reflected both in the famed Four Horsemen of Apocalypse (Revelations 6) and Chariot Horses in the Book of Zechariah. [Dr Eric Morse, The Living Stars, p.56.]


Antares as Antar’s Star, Antarah or Ántara

Allen (Star Names,p.365) says “Others say that Antares was Antar’s Star, and referring to the celebrated Arabic hero Antar, or Antarah“.

This refers to Ántara who portrays the “Heart of the Scorpion” as in the Manilius’ representation of the Scorpion character. “By virtue of its tail armed with its powerful sting, the Scorpion creates natures ardent for war and active service, which rejoices in plenteous bloodshed and in carnage more than in plunder”.

The hero Ántara lived just previous to the time of Muhammad; he died 615 AD at age 90; and was the mulatto warrior-hero of one of the Golden Mu’allakat. Son of an African slave woman and an Arab sheikh, Ántara was the bravest warrior of all of the Arabs. As a lowly slave himself he was spurred to greatness by love for his noble cousin ‘Abla. He had his chance when the fortunes of war turned against the tribe. With the enemy closing in on their encampment, his father called him to battle. He followed the call and soon proved himself the most valiant warrior in Arabia. In doing so he held his family to the ancient rule that only a free man with full rights may join in battle. The rule freed him of the taint of slavery and entitled him to marry his beloved. He was a poet of the first rank; his most eloquent poem can be seen on this website page; “Ántara’s Ode,” where he tells ‘Abla and the world of his love for her and of the victories that made him worthy of her hand.

The Lunar Mansions

Antares (α Scorpius) alone constituted the 16th manzil, Arabic Moon Mansion, Al Kalb, the Heart, one of the fortunate stations.

Influences the 16th Arabic Moon Mansion Al Kalb: Causes discord, sedition, conspiracy against princes and rulers, and revenge from enemies, but frees captives and helps building.

With Moon transiting here: sow seeds, travel and go to war. [Robson*, p.73.]


The Hindus used alpha (α Antares), sigma (σ), and tau (τ) for their 16th nakshatra (Hindu Moon MansionJyestha, Oldest, also known as Rohini, Ruddy, from the color of Antares, — Indra, the sky-goddess, being regent of the asterism that was figured as a pendent Ear Jewel.

Influences of the 16th Hindu Moon Mansion Jyestha: Ruled by Mercury. A sharp asterism belonging to the serving caste and favorable for punishment, torture, imprisonment, exorcism, mesmerism and separation or union when containing the Moon. Those born on the lunar day will be valiant, wealthy, famous, well born, somewhat dishonest, fond of travelling and in a high position. With Moon here at birth native will be cheerful, irascible, charitable, but will have few friends. Rules deserts and the right side of the body. [Robson*, p.82.]

The astrological influences of the constellation Scorpius

Ptolemy makes the following observations: “The bright stars in the front of the body of Scorpio have an effect similar to that produced by the influence of Mars, and partly to that produced by Saturn: the three in the body itself . . . are similar to Mars and moderately to Jupiter: those in the joints of the tail are like Saturn and partly like Venus: those in the sting, like Mercury and Mars.” By the Kabalists Scorpio is associated with the Hebrew letter Oin and the 16th Tarot Trump “The Lightning-Struck Tower.” [Robson*, p.60-61.]

The astrological influences of the constellation Scorpius given by Manilius:

“The Scorpion presides over arms” [Manilius, Astronomica, 1st century AD, book 4, p.253]

“By virtue of his tail armed with its powerful sting, wherewith, when conducting the Sun’s chariot through his sign, he cleaves the soil and sows seed in the furrow, the Scorpion creates natures ardent for war and active service, and a spirit which rejoices in plenteous bloodshed and in carnage more than in plunder. Why, these men spend even peace under arms; they fill the glades and scour the woods; they wage fierce warfare now against man, now against beast, and now they sell their persons to provide the spectacle of death and to perish in the arena, when, warfare in abeyance, they each find themselves foes to attack. There are those, too, who enjoy mock-fights and jousts in arms (such is their love of fighting) and devote their leisure to the study of war and every pursuit which arises from the art of war.” [Manilius, Astronomica, 1st century AD, p.239-240].

The astrological influences of the star Antares

According to Ptolemy it is of the nature of Mars and Jupiter. Alvidas gives Jupiter sextile Venus, but this is unlikely considering the decidedly martial and malefic nature of the star. It causes malevolence, destructiveness, liberality, broad-mindedness, evil presages and danger of fatality and makes its natives rash, ravenous, headstrong and destructive to themselves by their own obstinacy. [Robson*, 136.]

A Mars nature, in which the powers of Mercury and Jupiter and Saturn are also added. Antares makes people tough, belligerent and pugnacious. This is an important star for military personnel and is said to convey mental alertness, strategic ability and courage and to make dare-devils, especially if tied up with the MC, Ascendant, Sun or Jupiter. If associated with Mars, courage is said to become foolhardiness, leading to increased dangers. Natives with this particular configuration have to be prepared at all times for sudden incidents, unforeseen events and potential accidents. According to tradition, Antares is of violent character and is credited with being significant for a violent death, either in battle or by process of law. On the other hand, danger may come about by fire, weapons or machinery. Antares is also said to be unfortunate for the eyes, if in conjunction with the Ascendant, Moon or Sun and this has proven to be the case by later researchers. [Fixed Stars and Their Interpretation, Elsbeth Ebertin, 1928, p.70-71.]

If Rising: Riches and honor, violence, sickness, benefits seldom last. [Robson*, p.137.]

If culminating: Honor, preferment and good fortune. [Robson*, p.137.]

With Fortuna or its dispositor, poverty. [Robson*, p.137.]

With Sun: Pretended religion, insincere, honor and riches ending in disgrace and ruin, military preferment, danger of treachery, violence committed or suffered, fevers and sickness, injuries to the right eye, violent death. If rising or culminating, great honor through violence attended by difficulties and casualties. If with Mars also, pestilential disease. [Robson*, p.137.]

With Moon: Popular, broad-minded, interested in philosophy, science and metaphysics, liable to change religious opinions, influential friends, favorable for business and domestic matters, active in local affairs, great power, honor and wealth but benefits may not prove lasting, danger of violence, sickness, drowning or assassination. If in 1st or 10th houses, honor and preferment but many dangers and calamities. Liable to blindness or eye injuries especially if at the same time Mars or Saturn be with Regulus. If Saturn be with Aldebaran, danger of a violent death probably by hanging; but if Mars be with Aldebaran death by a stab, blow or fall especially if in angles. If a malefic be with Aldebaran in the 4th, 7th, 11th or 12th houses, death by a sudden sword-thrust, stab or fall (operations can be substituted for stabs nowadays). [Robson*, p.137.]

With Mercury: Suspicious, wrongfully accuses friends, unpopular, uses ecclesiastic influence in business, money obtained slowly and with much difficulty, danger of sickness to the native and his family, and death of a relative at home or away. [Robson*, p.138.]

With Venus: Insincere, dishonest, energetic and able but selfish. [Robson*, p.138.]

With Mars: Detrimental habits powerfully affecting the life, quarrels with friends and relatives, fairly favorable for gain. If at the same time the Moon is with Aldebaran, danger of death by sword or hanging. [Robson*, p.138.]

With Jupiter: Great religious zeal real or pretended, ecclesiastical preferment, tendency to hypocrisy, benefits through relatives. [Robson*, p.138.]

With Saturn: Materialistic, dishonest through circumstances created by environment, religious hypocrisy, many disappointments, loss through quarrels and legal affairs, trouble through enemies, many failures, hampered by relatives, unfavorable for domestic matters, much sickness to and sorrow from children. If at the same time the Moon is with Aldebaran, danger of death by sword or hanging. [Robson*, p.138.]

With Uranus: Abnormal and extreme ideas, hypocritical, lies and exaggerates, extremely socialistic, incites to riot, lawlessness and anarchism and in danger of imprisonment on this account, occasional poverty, disharmony with relatives, more than one marriage, unfavorable for children, violent death. [Robson*, p.138.]

With Neptune: Shrewd, cunning, unbalanced and mentally unsound, secretive but apparently candid, dishonest, tendency to theft, economical, untruthful, strange religious ideas, evil environment, gain through hard work, sudden and unexpected death brought about by treachery or through enemies who will escape retribution. [Robson*, p.138.]

 

Conjunctions to Antares

Antares was conjunction Ascendant in the birth charts of Ghandi, who died by assassination; general Schleicher, murdered by Hitler; Helen Keller. A conjunction with the MC has been recorded with boxer Ten Hoff and Bormann, minister under Hitler. A conjunction with the Sun can be found in the charts of British Prime Minister Churchill, Field-Marshall Kesserling and the former Reichsarschall Goering. Antares was conjunction the Moon of Copernicus, and bound up with the lunar Node and Moon of the philosopher Nietzch, who at age 45, became an imbecile. The Austrian Kulturphilisoph, Rudolf Kassner was bornwhen the fixed star was conjunction Mars. because he contracted infantile paralysis, he had to use crutches all his life.

This individual can even feel the rage at the bottom of their spine as this energy comes up the spine causing energized adrenal glands. They are enraged over the philosophies of society, such as the court system, religious disciplines and the government. They are enraged over any limitations, those limiting structures in the home, work, the government, religions and the military. They do not understand what their problem really is, they just know they are angered at everything. They respond to incidents that are trivial to others with chaos and aggression. They are especially destructive to those close to them for they are the ones who receive the greatest anger. These natives are never in a calm state and will literally beat anyone down who gets in the way. They do not feel any remorse or sorrow after hurting another being: they absolutely lack compassion.

If at the same time the Moon is with Aldebaran, danger of death by sword or hanging.  This planet restricts mobility, and these natives generally end up walking with a cane. Their nerves are usually shortened so that one leg is slightly shorter than the other causing them to walk with a limp. This is painful, but the cane offers support so that the pain is bearable. They eventually have more pain due to an imbalance of the spine caused by an interrupted blood flow at that point. Taking small amounts of garlic daily would help the nerves through the area and stimulate the energy flow. Deep within themselves, these people do not like to participate in daily activities. they do not like to help others, and there is a subconscious dilemma that brings on this blockage. they like to feel they are too good or too self-righteous and above others to participate in normal day-to-day activities. These persons use their restriction in mobility to place themselves above others.  Paul Cézanne 0°03′, M. C. Escher 0°39′, Megan Fox 2°17′

In the sky, Antares and Aldebaran are like the Primeval Psychopath and Enlightened Buddha respectively. Antares reminds Aldebaran that while he may be enlightened and at one with the universe, he is not God and Antares can still **** up his day. Conversely Aldebaran reminds Antares that he can live like a civilized being and still be happy.

Antares is the star of Uriel, one of the four Archangels who is described as being “as pitiless as a demon”.

It is like Aldebaran has built up this perfect state of meditation, this perfect worldview and his monastery is working like a fine tuned clock and he’s just about to achieve nirvana but coincidentally happens to be just a few miles north of the Great Wall and Genghis Khan just happens to be riding directly toward his precious little monastery.

When astrologers refer to Antares as the Anti-Ares it doesn’t mean Antares is anti war as in a pacifist who will not fight. It means Antares has the gall to wage war on war. Antares is a ruthless conqueror, not a pacifist. He puts down dissent by force and imparts a will to fight just for the heck of it. Seeing other people having the privilege of conquering upsets Antares who believes that privilege belongs to them alone.

Where Ares encourages the clash of competition and strife, Antares wants to end it all. Think of World War 2 when the US dropped nukes on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. That was an Antares moment.

To the Chinese, though, this region of space is their Azure (blue or green) Dragon, or “The Dragon of the East”. The region of Antares is called Ming Tang–“Hall of Light”–by them, as well as being “The Emperor’s Council Hall”. Antares itself is called the Fire Star, and is said to represent the Emperor. It is said the Azure Dragon has his tail in the Milky Way (the great Mother of Substance and Life) and “emerges from His home in the Celestial River [Milky Way] as he prepares to descend to Earth, to confer great blessings on the sages who do Him reverence.” Far from being a dark, brooding and sometimes malevolent influence, the Chinese saw the Dragon of the East as the “wise and majestic incarnation of the awesome power and infinite splendour of Nature.” Scorpios, stand proud!

To the occultist and to esoteric astrologers, Scorpio rules the 4th Creative Hierarchy (counting from the bottom up), named the Human Hierarchy. It is also called “The Initiates”, “The Lords of Sacrifice”, and it is literally the kingdom in Nature made up of the higher Selves of all humanity, operating from the plane of Intuition, or Buddhi. This last section may mean little to some readers. Suffice it to say that, far from representing the lower and murkier aspects of the human family, Scorpio actually resides over that part of each of us which truly makes us who we are–pure love and omnipotent consciousness–true Angelic beings, fully self conscious in the spiritual sense and conferring initiatory status up to the rank of Adept of the Great Law. This last sentence holds the key to the mystery of death and of transmutation in Scorpio, for it is the death of the lower nature and its replacement with or overshadowing by the full expression in its place of the “Christ within each of us” (which is the Solar Angel–the Angel of the Presence)–The Word made Flesh. “For these things you have seen me do, you will do also, and even greater.”

Wisdom and Initiation

The Romans had insight into this great constellation when they named Antares Cor Scorpionis— The Heart of the Scorpion. The Australian aborigines, too, showed their wisdom in naming that constellation Djuit–the Crocodile. Throughout the archives of the Ancient Wisdom initiates and beings of great wisdom have been called by reptilian names–“Serpents of Wisdom”, “Dragons of Wisdom”, “Crocodiles”–to name but a few. Even the Garden of Eden had its serpent, which granted forbidden (esoteric) knowledge to the ignorant souls who dwelled therein. The sign Scorpio confers wisdom to all who come under her influence. Even in the Greek mythology the Scorpion, whose sting killed Orion, the Hunter or Celestial Warrior, was a profound symbol of Wisdom and Initiation. Orion itself is the symbol for the would-be initiate, at war with his/her lower nature, or on the eternal quest for higher Truth, seeking to “take the kingdom of Heaven by force” and desirous of gaining knowledge through rebellion instead of acquiescence–a purely human trait. The sting of the Scorpion ends that struggle, producing the death of the lower nature and bringing to the seeker or warrior that for which they have striven–the Wisdom of the Ages. Liberation from the constraints of ignorance is the prize. “Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose.” as the popular song lyric goes.

The Egyptians, too, had their spiritual symbolism around the Scorpion and the sign Scorpio. Their ancient priests and healers were called the “Charmers of Selket”, and were dedicated to the service of Selket, the Scorpion goddess, which was also one of the many manifestations of their goddess Isis. Antares was thus a star sacred to Isis. The aspect of death in Initiation actually confers healing to the applicant for Initiation and refers to the death of all that hinders the access to the higher worlds for the Initiate. Sometimes that can actually mean a physical death, but it usually just feels like it instead, because there is so much that is wiped away in so short a period of time. Every person born in the sign Scorpio or heavily under her influence thus carries somewhere within their psyche the concepts of struggle toward some higher Goal, of the need to prevail over the aspects of their nature or those things or people outside them that impede them in that struggle or quest and the sure and certain knowledge that sometime, somewhere and in some way they will be tested as to their mettle–and that they must triumph. There is no middle ground for the Scorpio. Perhaps this is why they are often seen as difficult people.

Within the heart of every Scorpio pulses the passion for the higher Life and for liberation from the baser elements of life, however that may manifest. Every Scorpio seeks in some way to attain to a higher state of being. It is the basic drive behind the sign. It is also the strongest drive within any human being, regardless of how it might and often does get perverted and thwarted. But, it is particularly so for a Scorpio. This basic urge for union with the Divine within each of us is also that which gives rise to the sex drive, the 2nd most powerful force in the human nature, for it, too, is a basic drive which causes us to strive toward union and to be more than who we are alone.

So, when we encounter the Scorpio in the throes of some struggle and dark despair, spare a thought for what they might actually be trying to achieve. And, when you find yourself in times of trouble, it may pay you to seek out one of your beloved Scorpio friends or family members. You may just find they have the answers that you seek, or that they can at least point you in the right direction–and, if you are lucky, you might just get a memorable story to go along with it. Nothing else quite brings out the best in Scorpios like a good struggle, especially if they can fight alongside someone else for a common goal, and especially for the betterment of others.

Antares, through Scorpio, brings us the full passion of what our lives are truly meant to be. The trouble is that we too often do not see the truth of our lives. If we do not, then experience in Scorpio will surely set the record straight, and we all go through that at some point. Whether it is the passion of sex with one’s beloved, the heat of the field of battle, the drama of life and death in emergency services, the struggle for people’s souls in the field of religion, or just the daily battle to get through the day, Scorpio brings its tests and also its gifts. Whatever we decide upon as a direction in life is ultimately tested. As the esoteric astrologer knows, the decisions of Libra lead directly to the tests of Scorpio when the life is geared toward the Spirit.

The Crown of Human Achievement

The crown of human achievement is not to be found in the material constructs of humanity, nor in the outer world of human affairs. True human achievement shows itself in the fullness of our being, wrought through the pain of our struggles over lifetimes and in the gradual dominion that we show over our lower nature until, at the appointed day, we become as the great Teachers of all of the great world Religions and spiritual disciplines as we transform our crown of thorns, worn as a symbol of our sacrifice for all those for whom we toil, to become finally the Crowned Serpent of Wisdom. Then we descend from our true domain in the heaven worlds and emerge on earth to confer our blessings to all who would listen with open hearts and minds. At that point our little self is lost in the blaze of the Solar Angel, merges with it and the Heart of the Scorpion then bestows His blessing upon us, showing us that the Way is not so hard and that the rewards of life eternal and supernal are ours would we but take up call and make the needed sacrifices.
