Stories from the Stars

Free Try-Out Edition
for Yo-Yo Ma [Adb], born on 7 October 1955
Text by B.Brady & D.Gunzburg, Copyright © Astrodienst AG 2017
I. Introduction

This short extract allows you to get a taste of your personal horoscope "Stories from the Stars" by Bernadette Brady and Darrelyn Gunzburg. Small samples taken from the individual chapters will give you a glimpse of the horoscope as a whole, which comprises approximately 25-32 pages, and can be ordered as an E-Horoscope or bound booklet in the Astroshop.

The vault of the heavens is a lacework of stars that people find awe inspiring. The starry sky, however, is more than just beautiful. It also carries wisdom contained within stories.

This report explores those stories. It offers you information that enables you to actively work with your stars. Its aim is to help you understand how the stars contribute to your actions, your choices and your attitudes. For by understanding the role of the stars in your life you can step upon a path that allows you to be in greater harmony with them.

This star report contains three sections – the stars that shape your character, the stars that shape your vocation, and the stars that shape the journey of your life.

 

II. The Stars that Shape your Character

This chapter describes certain qualities that your stars contribute to your personality. They show themselves in your life through parans - a connection of this star with your birth chart. The five stars discussed in the full report can be gifts as well as challenges for you to work with and profit from.

This is the starting point for discovering your stars. Your journey begins with focusing on the stars and their myths that add their unique qualities to your character. Star qualities are particular features that contribute to your seed potential. They become apparent as your skills and resources through your life's experiences, for it is only by using them to deal with problems that you discover the potentials they offer you and how you can handle them wisely.

 

image Alcyone in the Pleiades

Alcyone is the small blue-green star which is the main star of the Pleiades. It is part of an asterism of seven stars called The Seven Gods by the Babylonians. Across many cultures these stars were said to contain the power to protect a person from difficulties through magical incantations. Today this magical quality is felt as a deep interest in metaphysical subjects or that which is hidden or secretive. Having this star in your life means that you can use your inner [...]

[..] This is the engine room of your motivation today. You now fight against injustices - for yourself or a member of your family, or for a larger group. As you take this stand, whether in your own private life amongst family or friends, or on a broader social level, you open yourself to criticism. In preparation [...]

In the full version, this chapter discusses five stars and five parans, which are the star's connections to your personal birth chart.

 

III. The Stars that Shape your Vocation

The third chapter of this horoscope gives you information on the stars that are connected with themes you care and feel passionate about in the world, with your vocation.

The themes of your vocation stars are fundamental to your idea of what you stand for and what is important to you and how you spend your life, far more than just your job or career. It could, however, become your career or surface in your life as your passion or a cause to which you devote your free time. Hence your vocational stars suggest how you can lead a meaningful life. Pursuing the themes suggested by these stars may not bring you riches but they will allow you to feel that you are in your proper place, living a life of purpose. No matter what other paths you take in your life, your vocation stars will always pull you back to their themes.

 

image Alphard in Hydra

One of the themes of your vocational drive is shaped by the bright red star in the middle of the Hydra known as Alphard, the 'Heart of the Serpent'. Many cultures have a snake or serpent connected with their creation mythology. For the Babylonians this was the dragon of Tiamat. In the Old Testament it was the snake in the Garden of Eden. In these myths it is the serpent that catalyses crisis and upheaval and thus has to be subdued, slain or crushed. Yet as the story proceeds, [...]

[..] Furthermore, family crisis management, or employment in areas where drama and crisis are part of the fabric of your working life, such as in the emergency ward of a hospital, falls within the domain of Alphard and soaks up your need for and ability to work with intensity. For you are someone who does [...]

In the full version, this chapter discusses two stars and parans.

 

IV. The Star Stories in Your Life

The star stories in this chapter contain different themes and characters that you recognize and identify with, at different times and to different degrees. Knowing them allows you to use their resources consciously rather than following them blindly.

Your star stories are the narrative which provides the stage for your star qualities and your vocation stars. Some of these stories come from the stars and will make themselves apparent through re-occurring patterns of events. Knowing your star stories enables you to be alert at the beginning of the cycle before you find yourself slipping into old habit patterns with their predictable outcomes.

The Explorer: The vision to see and pursue fresh options image

Yours is the star story of a mighty ship that sails around the heavens, and you are its captain who dares to dream. This starry vessel and its commander represent the quest for adventure and it has been sailing in the heavens for a long time. The Egyptian kings used this great ship to journey to the underworld. The Greeks called it the Argo, the vessel captained by the mythic hero Jason to travel to mysterious lands in quest of the Golden Fleece. Christianity turned it into Noah's Ark, the biblical [...]

[..] This can range from being involved with sports and the exhilaration of speed through running, riding horses, driving fast cars or flying planes, or the tension that comes through the enjoyment and love of detective mysteries. For you, the quest for adventure is valued more highly than commitments to [...]

In the full version, this chapter discusses three star stories and four parans.

V. Conclusion

In the face of the starry heavens you may feel that you are small, but by understanding your personal relationship with the stars, you can step upon a path that allows you to gain a greater harmony with them. This harmony can give you insights about what it is to be a part of a living cosmos. As you come to understand your stars through this report, go outside on a clear night and learn to see your stars in the night sky. Visually connecting with them can help you to understand their union with your life.
