Algorab is a infamous darkish star discovered within the constellation Corvus the Crow. Algorab has a status for being devilish, however is that this fame justified? On this article I take a look at the mythology behind it, what different astrologers have mentioned about this star, and supply some examples of its power in these born below its affect.
The parable goes that the solar god Apollo despatched the raven with a cup (Constellation Crater) to get some water for his feast. Alongside the best way, this raven was distracted by some stunning figs on a tree and misplaced observe of the time he was feasting on them. When the crow abruptly remembered his message, he picked up a passing snake (Constellation Hydra) and used it as an excuse for not filling the cup as requested.
One other fable says “The Raven was given the duty by Apollo to keep watch over Apollo’s pregnant lover Coronis. The raven delivered the unwelcome information to Apollo that she was having an affair with another person. Apollo in anger cursed the raven, and its colour modified from its former silver hue to its current black. ~ A crow
Extra concerning the zodiac signal; “Corvus is much like Mars and Saturn. It’s mentioned to bestow crafty, greed, ingenuity, persistence, revenge, ardour, selfishness, lies, aggressiveness and materials instincts, typically inflicting the natives to turn out to be agitators. [1.] I wish to add that they’re nice gossipers, journalists and paparazzi. Generally they profit from the misfortune of others.

The moon home Hasta comprises all the celebs of Corvus. Hasta means hand and likewise laughter. The crow’s croak resembles the cackle of an evil feminine. The moon right here creates mad genius or brings out the bottom vibration within the crow. The moon on Algorab in keeping with Robson: “born native shall be lively, resourceful, shameless, cruel and a thief and drunkard.” [2.] Though I am certain this place can be utilized in an advanced manner, maybe as an exorcist.
Agrippa on Corvus;
“makes a person choleric, daring, brave, filled with ideas, a slanderer, and causes mischievous desires; (?!) it additionally provides the facility to drive away and collect collectively evil spirits; it’s helpful in opposition to the wickedness of males, devils, and winds.” 
In magic, Corvus is used to drive away evil spirits. The wings have a double position. One is the shadow of the opposite. The issue is you can by no means inform what’s ‘good’ and what’s ‘unhealthy’. I might say battle hearth with hearth. It takes crow to beat a nasty crow.
Algorab The Behenian star?
Algorab is Corvus’ most notorious star, despite the fact that it isn’t the brightest. There may be additionally some thriller and confusion between Corvus’ two essential stars, Gienah (left, Gamma Corvus) and Algorab (proper, Delta Corvus).
In fifteenth century star maps, Gienah is marked as being on the appropriate and never on the left. That is necessary as a result of solely considered one of these stars is classed as a Behenian star, which has magical properties and is utilized in medieval magic.
Wiki mentions the title Giena at 13º Libra 23′ from Agrippa’s 1531 version, which is definitely Algorab’s present place. Nevertheless, Christopher Warnock calls the place for Gienah 10º 44′ for his ‘Wing of Corvus Rising’ Talisman.
The star Algorab has a horrible status, however is Algorab really Algorab? Someplace down the highway their names had been switched. Algorab in keeping with Robson “signifies destructiveness, malice, devilishness, disgust and mendacity, and is said to scavengers.”
Extra interpretations of Algorab: “A Mars-Saturn star that may present the harder facet of Libra, a variation on the reality when an excuse appears safer.”  and at last of the Ebertins “Delays and reluctance are attributable to fiascos, losses, mishandling of instances and enmity generally. Accidents or accidents which can be tough to keep away from.” 
In medieval magic, Algorab is used with “Burdock seed, leaves and roots, with the tongue of a frog, positioned and so forth. It makes folks indignant, hateful, daring and slanderous, causes unhealthy desires, drives away demons and protects males from demons and evil winds .”
Is Algorab magic or evil?
Is one star evil and the opposite magical? The confusion solely provides to the Crow’s devious status as a complete. The truth that ‘devilishness’ is related to magic displays the age-old worry of prophetic energy. Nevertheless, we should always not merely dismiss this as Christians’ exaggerated worry of witchcraft.
Wanting on the proof, there seems to be no important distinction between Gienah and Algorab of their supposed views ‘malice’. Each Annie Besant and Helena Blavatsky each had their moons on Gienah. This provides the star extra credibility because the magical star of Behen, as each girls had been main figures of the theosophical society.
I think about that these ladies had been branded as ‘witches’ by mainstream Christian society of their time (late nineteenth century). Rosenberg brings up “witch hunts” in her Gienah interpretations, in addition to non secular fanatics. Generally, I really feel like all the celebs of Corvus have a witchy vibe, however particularly once they align with the moon.
