Stories from the Stars

Free Try-Out Edition
for John Sack [Adb], born on 24 March 1930
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 Betelgeuse in Orion

Betelgeuse is the bright red star in the right shoulder of Orion. To the Egyptians, Orion was the constellation that represented a god, the symbol of the victorious pharaoh smiting his enemies. The pharaohs were considered to be the mortal flesh of this great constellation and upon their death they returned to these stars. Betelgeuse, being the right shoulder of the pharaoh, represented the pharaoh's glorious victories in battle and his power and ability to rule the Egyptian [...]

[..] Now you take on projects that are challenging, sometimes tedious, perhaps even physically arduous. This could be in your work as an architect or builder, in sport requiring long hours of training, or even as a musician where muscles need to be trained over many hours of practice. This requires long-term [...]

In the full version, this chapter discusses five stars and seven 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 Rukbat in the Archer

Rukbat is a small blue-green star in the knee of the left front leg of Sagittarius the Archer. Rukbat in essence symbolises steadiness and reliability. With this star linked to your vocation it gives you a persistent steadfastness in the pursuit of your vocational dreams. You will be drawn to matters to do with history or tradition and will immerse yourself in exploring the old ways of approaching a topic or examining a subject's lost conventions. You could find yourself [...]

[..] However, this very steadiness can also be a tie that binds you fast to an idea long after it has outlived its usefulness, keeping you holding on when the time to let go has long passed. This reduces your ability to be flexible and to make the most of life's opportunities. This could develop into family [...]

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.

Self-Sacrifice: Salvation through service image

The main character of this star story is Berenice, a young Greek woman deeply concerned for the safe return of her beloved husband from the battlefield. To ensure his protection, Berenice sacrifices her hair to Aphrodite, the goddess of love. The goddess is so touched by this selfless act that she not only grants Berenice her wish and returns her husband unharmed but also places the sacrificed hair into the sky as a constellation. Berenice's act of surrendering her hair may seem minor and unimportant [...]

[..] You find comfort in prayer, aligning yourself with the everyday expression of what you believe in, not in a grand manner but from a quiet devotional approach, and you want to be involved in helping others find that same comfort and nourishment. Alternatively, you focus your life by committing yourself [...]

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.
