Fomalhaut Star Astrology

It is situated in its eye and the fish itself, which is found at the foot of the water bearer. Originally this star was part of the constellation Aquarius as Greek Astronomer Aratus mentions in 270 bc. Fomalhaut is “One large and bright by both the Pourer’s (Aquarius) feet.” To me it makes sense Fomalhaut being part of Aquarius, as then it forms part of the fixed cross of the four Archangels; Michael (Aldebaran), Raphael (Regulus) and Oriel (Antares).Fomalhaut is Gabriel, the human. The others are beasts… The Horror-Scope of Algol - by Nick Kollerstrom. Algol. From p.332 of Star Names, Richard Hinckley Allen, 1889.


[A scanned copy can be viewed on this webpage] Beta (β) Perseus, Algol, is a bright star positioned on the severed head that Perseus is carrying. It is an eclipsing binary; every 68 hours and 49 minutes this Demon Star ‘blinks’ for roughly 8 hours as the dimmer star of the pair passes between the brighter and the earth.

The 13th century Persian astronomical writer Al Kazwini mentioned it as Al Firk, but, although thus found on the Borgian globe, the German astronomer Ideler (1766-1846) thinks it a mistake of that author, as a single star cannot represent a Flock, which Al Firk signifies.
