Stories from the Stars

Free Try-Out Edition
for Joseph McCarthy [Adb], born on 14 November 1908
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 Alphard in Hydra

Alphard is the bright red star in the middle of the Hydra known as 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, it is clear that a new order has arisen in the world. Alphard captures [...]

Focused intensity about ideas

For you, the strong passion of Alphard touches your Moon, so the rage or the frustration of Alphard is embedded in how you engage with the world, emotionally and physically. You are naturally apprehensive of the world, the environment or people, and you anticipate difficulties. This concern [...]

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 Acumen in Scorpio

The qualities of Acumen are carried into your vocation, your deep interest. Acumen is a small white nebula in the tail of Scorpio and it is associated with the sting that can erode. The quality associated with this star is therefore dealing with, or at times being the perpetrator of, attacks. These attacks can be either physical in nature, or can take the form of strong criticism of your ideas or your spiritual values. If you try to retaliate, these attacks only strengthen, [...]

[..] It is your instinct to speak out against injustices and if this means you endanger or compromise yourself, you will do so. You are an activist and you willingly put yourself on the line to represent the challenging idea. Whether taking a stand against what you consider to be an unjust situation within [...]

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.

Looking for Eternity: The scorching fire of creativity image

This story is of a star that is so bright the Egyptians called it The Scorcher. The name of the star is Sirius and its story is about the refusal to accept endings and the creation of something that lives on. The Egyptian version of the story was of a widow, Isis, who would not acknowledge her husband's death. Instead she found his body and, with her magical powers, breathed enough life into it for them to make love. From this union of life and death a child was born and this child, named Horus [...]

[..] Like these women in your family you are devoted to your children and willingly sacrifice your own life in order for their talents to shine; or you are keen to help promote a cause. Yet you are not seeking personal glory, as you believe it is far nobler to contribute to, enable, and empower another person [...]

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.
