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 Alnilam in Orion

Alnilam is the blue-green star which forms the buckle of the belt of the constellation Orion. Orion was called the Great Shepherd of Anu, guarding the great flocks of the sky. Thus the star is symbolically linked with joining or pulling things together. This quality means that you have the ability to take what is already known, and improve or expand the subject in such a way that a new foundation is laid. You want to create bridges between ideas or groups of people to form [...]

[..] You also seem to find the lucky breaks that bring you opportunities to advance in your work, career or in the social arena. You are someone who can make the most of opportunities to catalyse new prospects that allow you to gain in status. This is a gift that appears to come through chance meetings or [...]

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 Markab in Pegasus

Markab is a small white star in the wing of Pegasus, the flying horse. It is the star that forms the saddle of Pegasus and thus represents great solidness and reliability, a point of steadiness and the power to maintain stability under pressure. As a beneficial contact touching your vocation, it gives you leadership skills and the ability to handle crisis, for you can take a balanced approach to drama or change and stay calm while those around you are negatively affected by [...]

Being a rock on which others can stand

Hence this star indicates that, in your vocation, you have leadership skills and the ability to handle crises. You are drawn to work in areas where you are required to access this overwhelming desire to stand firm for your beliefs and principles and to be consistent [...]

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 Seer: Perceiving the tides of life image

This is the star story of a celestial whale, Cetus, which can erupt from the depths of the sea, bringing up sediment and waste that has lain dormant for years. The Greeks saw Cetus connected with Andromeda. In a foolish moment Cassiopeia had claimed that her daughter, Andromeda, was more beautiful than the Nereids and, to pay for this boast, Andromeda was chained to a rock as a sacrifice to the great sea monster. The hero of the story was Perseus, who saved Andromeda by using the severed head of [...]

Laws, rules, and discipline are the themes of this starry story in your life. You experience authority as being subject to political or economic whims and that the effects of such uncertainty brings hardship. This element of insecurity connected with the order of life either makes you a saviour, a person [...]

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.
