Text by B.Brady & D.Gunzburg, Copyright © Astrodienst AG 2018
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 Hamal in the Ram

Hamal is a distinct orange star at the base of the right horn of Aries the Ram. Hamal is a forceful star of action and this star's quality gives you strength of independence, will, and determination. Hamal also indicates that you are a person who is focused and direct, but if your action is blocked, you can become frustrated and angry, for you have a hot temper. You find authority figures difficult to handle and your personal philosophy is that actions speak louder than words. So your [...]

An investigative nature

You have Hamal in paran with your Mercury, so you see these vulnerabilities in the ways people communicate, for this star influences how you think and talk, and what interests you. As a child you were either encouraged to be an independent thinker and to read widely or blocked [...]

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 Procyon in Canis Minor

Procyon is a bright green star in the hind parts of the little dog, Canis Minor. Canis Minor is known as the sitting dog or small dog and was associated with Gula, the Babylonian goddess of healing. In the northern hemisphere Procyon rises before Sirius, and thus its main claim to fame is the fact that it heralds the rising of Sirius, the brightest star in the sky apart from our sun. As it comes before Sirius, The Shining One, it suggests a quick rise to success or fortune. It is, [...]

[..] In finances this makes you a good trader, maintaining diversity and moving quickly from one opportunity to the next. Financial activity, however, is not the only option open to you, for Procyon is about transition, and although this applies to notions of money and fame, success and failure, it is also [...]

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 Royal Family: Power through dignity image

This is the story of two monarchs, King Cepheus and Queen Cassiopeia, both of whom orbit close to the North Pole star. It is a story of sovereignty, the journey of finding self-respect and the struggle that goes into maintaining it against opposition or conflict. These two starry shapes have been associated with the idea of royalty since antiquity, and their story is your story, woven into your life and through the lives of your family members. This King and Queen were once in perfect balance. The King [...]

It is the celestial queen in this starry story who touches your life, so love and the desire for unity are virtues that you hold dear. You were born into a family whose foundation rested on pride and dignity or else your family was aware of its position in the community. This self-possession was built [...]

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