Re: Inquiry about Algol and Capulus

I was immediately intrigued by the myth behind Algol,
so I inputted it into my natal chart.
Turns out Algol is in conjunction with my natal Sun by two degrees.
your birthdate is approximately mid-May then

because the suns latitude is zero degrees
and ALGOLS Latitude = +22.25'
clearly then
your sun IS NOT conjunct ALGOL by LATITUDE

your suns declination is approximately 19
meanwhle ALGOLS Declination is +40.57'
your sun IS NOT conjunct ALGOL by declination

and so
your sun is "conjunct ALGOL by longitude"
but neither by declination nor latitude

thus there is no need for concern

I know this is probably a silly question,
but does having Capulus, since it is the nemesis star of Algol,
present with the conjunction between my natal Sun and Algol
possibly lessen the chance of injury often associated with having a strong aspect of Algol in your chart?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I can't seem to find an answer anywhere.
Thank you, and I hope I haven't broken any community rules;
this is actually my first time posting.
CAPULUS is not conjunct your natal sun by LATITUDE
CAPULUS is not conjunct your natal sun by DECLINATION
so no worries
