Zubenelgenubi – A Star Gate to the New World?

Cayelin K Castell 201

Jupiter stationed direct on July 10 at 10:04 am PDT within 2 degrees of Zubenelgenubi, aligns exactly with this star on August 13 and stays within 10 degrees until October 15, 2018.

Jupiter, in its 12 year cycle, began 2018 between the stars of Zubenelgenubi and Zubenelshamali. Mars was with Zubenelgenubi January 1 and Jupiter on January 6, both aligned with Zubenelshamali and near Zubenelgenubi.

Jupiter can only be in this part of the sky every 12 years and Mars every 2 years or so. Mars and Jupiter won’t be together in this area of the sky until November 24, 2053 when Jupiter and Mars are together at 20 Scorpio.

Jupiter expands our vision of possibilities and Mars is about taking action to bring these visions into form. Without action – it doesn’t matter how magical or amazing our vision is – it isn’t going to manifest. Mars and Jupiter together is a great combination for activating this Stargate.

If you have planets angles or Nodes near 15 Scorpio 17  (within at least 3 to 6 degrees) then you have a personal connection with Zubenelgenubi and the Scales of Justice (what just IS) representing the balance between yin and yang, male and female, Heaven and Earth. Zubenelgenubi is my personal star as it was rising at the moment of my birth!

Zubenelshamali is around 19 Scorpio 35 marking the other pan in the constellation of the Scales. These stars are linked with the principles of natural law (or cosmic law) going beyond the limits and rules of human law.

In recent times, the Scales of Justice have reflected human judgment, including perspectives on what is right and what is wrong. This suggests your point of view is wrong if it doesn’t match the point of view of the dominant culture that is intent on controlling and enslaving you. If you do not share an accepted perspective in any given group or tribe then you might be threatened, banished, cast out, imprisoned, silenced, tortured, killed.

New Perspectives on Zubenelgenubi
This star now marks the seasonal time of the Cross-Quarter between the September Equinox and the December Solstice representing the mid-point swing between seasons meaning this star is undergoing a major evolution as we evolve our understanding and experience of Zubenelgenubi along with the star marking the other side of the scales, Zubenelshamali.

Starlight Elixirs and Cosmic Vibrational Healing by Michael Smulkis and Fred Rubenfeld suggests Zubenelgenubi is designed to assist individuals in finding peace in their relationships by balancing the forces of aggression and control. These aggressive and controlling forces cause disruption and damage.

Zubenelgenubi is about finding inner harmony and independence while also strengthening our relationship with our spirit guides. This star also supports a more conscious connection with our twin flame usually located in other dimensions of reality – hence the additional value of accessing the star gate portal both Zubenelgenubi and Zubenelshamali represent.

Zubenelgenubi also has the ability to support experiences of deep self acceptance through self-nurturing and self-love while bringing forth new concepts and ideas for relating.

In the late 1990’s at a sacred site in Nevada under dark skies with a group learning the night sky, I had a clear direct personal experience of  Zubenelgenubi and Zubenelshamali representing a Stargate to other realms and dimensions where life is more easily experienced as balanced and loving. Where what JUST IS truly is Justice for all. These stars represent the weighing of the  heart with the mind – where ideally these two are in equal balance.

The Paradox of Accepting what JUST IS.
When we release the need to judge others (including ourselves) and learn to accept what IS, we gain the power to radically change our life experience because we stop attracting what it is we are judging. Carl Jung summed it up saying, “What we resist—persists.” Judgment along with denial and emotional control keep us locked into a limited narrow range of experience. Releasing the judgments we hold opens a space within, where greater love and magic is experienced.

Embracing guidance for how to proceed with the heart weighed in balance with the mind (the feather of Maat) these stars open a portal or gateway into a world of peace, plenty, love and ecstatic bliss. This balanced realm of heart and mind expressed easily through humanity long ago and has been lost. It is time to reclaim it!

A Few More Details about Zubenelgenubi
Zubenelgenubi (zbənɛləˈnbi) sometimes written as Zuben Elgenubi, is from an Arabic word that is translated as the Southern Claw referring to a time when these stars were considered to mark the Claws of the Scorpion. Other names for this star are Kiffa Australis (or Elkhiffa Australis) a Latin translation of another Arabic term al-kiffah al-janūbiyy meaning southern pan (of the scales).  Many other names have been connected to this star in many different cultures with many different interpretations of what the stars of the Scales symbolized.

Tuning into this Stargate and having your own direct relationship is the best way to understand the energies available to you from this area of the sky.

In 2016, the International Astronomical Union put together a catalogue standardizing proper names for stars approving Zubenelgenubi for α² Librae on 21 August 2016 as it is now written in the IAU Catalog of Star Names. Zubenelgenubi (currently located at 15 Scoprio) is 77 light-years  from the Sun and is the brightest star in the constellation of the Scales. Zubenelgenubi is within 0.33 degree from the ecliptic so it can be easily occulted by the Moon and more rarely by planets.

The next occultation of a planet over this star is the 10th of November 2052 by Mercury.
In October of 2021 the Moon begins a series of Occultations that will last into February 2023 over Zubenelgenubi.

The first date is when the Occultations begins and the Second Date is the last one in the Series occurring about every 9 to 9.5 years.

Zubenelgenubi and the constellation of the Scales it occupies – is not visible for about a month from around October 31 to November 23 when it is within the beams of the Sun.

On November 6, 7, and 8, the Sun rises with this star, also currently marking the zodiacal Cross Quarter of 15 degrees Scorpio or the exact half way point between the September Equinox and the December Solstice. See the November Cross-Quarter Swing Between the Worlds.

More about Zubenelgenubi 

Zubenelgenubi sits midway between the red royal star Antares in the constellation of the Scorpion and the blue-white star Spica of the Divine Feminine in the constellation of the Virgin Priestess, suggesting this star marks a between point. Zubenelgenubi is between Antares and Spica and also between the September Equinox and the December Solstice. If we consider we are also at a Great Turning of the Cosmic Wheel this is another indicator of the importance of this time as a between place between a great ending and a great beginning.

The ancient Sanskrit word for the constellation where Zubenelgenubi is located is Tula, the name for the ‘Holy Land’ or Promise Land. In William Henry’s book, The Peacemaker and the New Key of Life Tula is defined as “the place of Peace.”

Tula is a place and a process of becoming. In Tula our thoughts, desires or fears will become instantly ‘real’. What is in our hearts cannot remain hidden. What is felt in the heart is what is seen in the world. Only love can flow through our hearts in Tula. ~William Henry

Egyptian ScalesWhen planets are passing Zubenelgenubi they are also near its companion star Zubenelshemali marking the other pan of the Scales forming a gateway or stargate access to the realm of Tula, the Promise Land reminding us of the ancient prophecies that speak of a Promise Land or Golden age.

This fits with the constellation of the Scales also known for weighing the heart of the dead to determine their next path or next life. The Scales are also a symbol of balance, truth, and justice, reminding us moderation and prudence are always worthy actions. If the heart is heavier than the feather of Ma’at that person will return to this world. More about the Scales (a.k.a. Libra) HERE

  1. Hi there, Cayelin, from Texas,

    Your discussion of “The Paradox of Accepting what JUST IS” was lucid, like crystal clear water from a mountain stream. I understand it completely, from world travel experiences and relationships. I have experienced such moments what I call….”WHOA, What was all that all about?!!” and then I laugh and shout at the Heavens! I look forward to the coming Mars-Jupiter Scorpio conjunction energy. I was incarnated with Mars-Scorpio 18.25, squaring Pluto-Leo 19.26, both sesquiquadrate Sun-Aries 2.42. Looking back, I have always been the voyager. Reviewing the maps, I trust my wandering will continue.

    Many blessings for you this new year.

    Michael

    • Thank you so much Michael and Happy New Year Blessings to you too! I am so glad what I wrote about the Paradox was clear because I certainly have had my doubts about how clear I am being these days! I imagine this Mars Jupiter thing is already activating you and Jupiter will continue to expand your enthusiasm and quest for passionate meaning through out its journey through Scorpio! As well as the Stargate of Zubenelgenubi and Zubenelshamali (closest to your Mars) will inspire your journey even more! 🙂

  2. Cayelin, my Sun is located at 17.46 Scorpio, the exact degree of the Mars Jupiter conjunction on January 6! Love your article. We have such similar ideas. Anything you can add about Zubenalschmali?

    • Happy New Year Jo, Thank you for sharing that we have similar ideas as I so imagine we do!
      Zubenelshamali is the balance point to Zubenelgenubi so they share a lot of similar energy. Something you can tune into and see if you get answer about is to figure out (for you) if Zubenelshamali is weighing your heart or you knowing? I suspect is different for all of us depending on our personal connection to these stars? 🙂

  3. Aloha beautiful Cayelin — greetings from Natasha on the Big Island! 🙂
    My Moon/Neptune conjunction is at 15 Scorpio, so am thoroughly enjoying your article.
    Someone shared it on Astrology Hub where I am currently contributing, bringing me to your website and your work. Thank you dear!
    If you are heading to Hawaii any time soon, please let me know, would love to see you and connect!
    Blessings
    Natasha Alter

    • Thank you so much Natasha for taking the time to give feedback about Zubenelgenubi Article (my most personal and favorite star). Sounds like we have a connection there as that is the star that was rising when I was born and where Moon and Neptune were for you. How cool is that? Have you been seeing Jupiter right beside Zubenelgenubi in the morning sky? So stunning.

      I am hoping to get to Hawaii this coming year and will keep you posted. I love the BIG Island. Where are you located there? Hope your Holy Days are magical and Fun. Many Blessings to you. Cayelin

      • Cayelin, would love to see you on the Big Island! I live right next to the retreat center where Daniel and you were holding workshop for the Venus transit. Am also very close to the lava field for start viewing!
        A question for you: you write in your article “This star also supports a more conscious connection with our twin flame usually located in other dimensions of reality – hence the additional value of accessing the star gate portal both Zubenelgenubi and Zubenelshamali represent.”
        How did you receive this information? Somewhere in the deep layers of my intuition I have known for a while that my Twinflame might not be found on this planet… and sort of making peace with that internally. But at the same time I am fully open for a most profound, fulfilling, conscious, enlightening, spiritual relationship in this lifetime….. any wisdom you could pass on to me in this dilemma as the Zubenelgenubi Priestess?

        • Happy New Year Natasha,

          I would so love to see you again. I am dreaming into that possibility. Woohoo!

          The information about the Twin Flame connection comes from the book Starlight Elixirs and Cosmic Vibrational Healing. In my experience you can have a Twin Flame relationship in this reality (though that is more likely extremely rare). It is more likely you will have a significant and meaningful relationship with others who are not your Twin Flame but perhaps more like a soul mate. I do see many get hung up on the Twin Flame thing and its not helpful.

          The rest of the information I shared about these stars are more personally coming from my own experience of tuning into this part of the sky.

          I hope that helps?

          • Hi ladies! I am the one that shared this article on Astrology Hub. Cayelin, I love your work! I, too, have connections to this star (my Venus Star Point is 15° Scorpio, Vertex 14° Scorpio and Uranus 21° Scorpio). Looking forward to connecting more to this star! Looking forward to your webinar tonight Cayelin 😊

          • Yay Ellen. Excited to have you join us tonight. Thank you for sharing my article on Zubenelgenubi. I so appreciate that! 🙂
            We will be looking at Venus a little different than the Star Points as described by Arielle Guttman though her approach is also a worthy investigation. Do you know if you have Morning Evening or an Underworld Venus Star Phase? Simply said how far is Venus from the Sun and is Venus rising before or after the Sun? Jupiter and Mars are still with the Stars of the Scales most notably Zubenelshamali today where your Uranus is closest!!!
