Algorab Star Astrology

Fixed star Algorab is of the nature of Mars and Saturn. It gives destructiveness, malevolence, fiendishness, repulsiveness and lying, and is connected with scavenging.

Algorab is one of the 15 Behenian Fixed Stars. Its image is a raven, snake or negro dressed in black. It makes the wearer angry, bold, courageous and a backbiter, gives bad dream, the power of summoning or driving away evil spirits and protection from winds and the malice of men and devils. Rules stones of the color of black onyx, burr, quadrangles, henbane, comfrey, and the tongue of a frog. Algorab rules the right kidney in the human body.

Can indeed show up the more troublesome side of Libra, a variation on the truth when an excuse looks to be safer, but is not always found to be so – as the Crow discovered. Not a significant star when well aspected, but can be a nuisance if aspects or planets involved are hard ones.

Algorab, in The Crow, has a Saturn-Mars nature and is said to be a hindrance, especially when other Saturnian influences are predominant. Delays and restraint are indicated to come about by fiascoes, losses, wrong handling of matters and enmity in general. Constellation Corvus is like Mars and Saturn. It is said to give craftiness, greediness, ingenuity, patience, vengefulness, passion, selfishness, lying, aggressiveness, and material instincts, and sometimes causes its natives to become agitators.
