Fixed star Procyon, Alpha Canis Minoris, is a bright white star with a faint yellow tinge in the body of the Lesser Dog, Canis Minor Constellation. The traditional name Procyon comes from the Greek word προκύον (prokyon), which means before the dog, since it precedes the “Dog Star” Sirius as it travels across the sky due to Earth’s rotation.

Procyon is a very fortunate star; known to the Mesopotamians as ‘The Star of the Crossing of the Water – Dog’, as it lies near their River of Heaven, the Milky Way. Procyon foretold wealth and renown, and in all astrology has been much regarded, giving ‘Everlasting of the Right, and Good Effect’. Procyon has a Mars-Mercury nature and therefore makes people hasty, jealous, pig-headed. But it also confers will-power and ability to put thoughts and plans into action.
