August 7, 2009: Moon, Jupiter, and Fomalhaut

EarthSky displays a map of the night time sky for August 7, 2009, showing the alignment of a waning gibbous Moon, Jupiter, and Fomalhaut.

Find out why Fomalhaut, one of the four Royal Stars of Persia, is called "the loneliest star"!

Brady's Book of Fixed Stars gives Fomalhaut's key phrase as: being humanitarian and poetic, and indicates that if Fomalhaut is linked to planet in your natal chart, you must be very clear and honest with yourself about the motives for your goals - and that 'personal glory' should not be your driving force.

Clues are given by the character of the planet in contact: Jupiter with ideals and expansion, Mercury with communications, thinking, and plans, Venus with relationships, romance, and values, etc.

Another side of this Star is the 'bittersweet madness of the poetic mind challenged to remain in the physical world.' This relates on one level to the child stolen by fairies who must fight to return to the mortal world!

Fomalhaut is one of the great Stars of the heavens and will definitely affect your life if it links to your chart....there may be fairies there...
