Aldebaran

Aldebaran

The female deer star, Aldebaran. In legends told to be the original home star of the Giants and the divine eye in the sky. It is also written in Sanskrit that the female deer is the female aspect of Brahma (the creative force of the cosmos), the female Logos. Aldebaran is also the Behenian star associated with my birthstone garnet. Aldebaran is additionally associated with milk thistle which produces methemoglobin when eaten by some animals. Interestingly, methemoglobin is found in people with blue skin, a trait frequently exhibited among my ancestors, and a recessive trait among my people today. So, my blue people are children of the red star Aldebaran.
