The fixed star Alphard sits at 27 degrees Leo in the Hydra constellation. This in itself is fearsome! It is the heart of the Hydra snake, poison in its blood. It is also known as the ‘backbone’ of the snake and ‘the solitary one’. Those with Alphard in an exact or within 1 degree conjunction of their personal planets or angles are given the energy of Alphard. This energy revolves around poison- this can mean physically or metaphorically. It casts trouble and disruption in the natives life. It gives raw, intense emotion that is often hurled rather than kept inside. Symbolically, it uses its fangs when it feels needed- and with strong emotions, the need may be often. There is also a point to be made about self control and Alphard. There may be low self-control which can lead to immoral actions and trouble. On a positive side, Alphard can give the native innate wisdom regarding human nature and a deep appreciation for music or art.
