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 more than six 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 Alpheratz in Pegasus

Alpheratz is a bright blue-green star that is both the head of the princess, Andromeda, and the navel of Pegasus, the flying horse. It captures the shift from the fixed or jammed state of the princess who is chained to a rock to that of the speed and freedom of the flying horse. The symbolism of horses is deep within humanity. For thousands of years it represented the fastest way a person could travel. Today that speed is embodied in the world's fastest vehicles: cars, [...]

Seeking independence and self-reliance

The inspiration and speed of Alpheratz combines with your Sun and links your sense of being to both a state of fixedness and the speed of the flying horse. You are therefore seen by others as a person who can break out of a jammed situation, or resolve an old [...]

In the full version, this chapter discusses more than six 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 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 Dark Hero: Struggling with compulsions image

Woven into your life is a star story linked to the world of edges. Its themes are of success and achievement acquired only after a journey of personal reflection, thus it is a story of transformation. It is encapsulated by the great scorpion in the sky, the constellation Scorpius, which guards the gateway to the West, the realm of the underworld. All who pass through this domain have to undergo a journey where their old self dies only to be reborn. This transformation of the self is your story and [...]

[..] Your natural skill lies in knowing how things are engineered and the principles that are at the heart of the matter. You are fascinated with physical buildings, bridges, and even cities, and why they are constructed in this way, how each part interlinks with another to provide a solid edifice that will [...]

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