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 Alcyone in the Pleiades

Alcyone is the small blue-green star which is the main star of the Pleiades. It is part of an asterism of seven stars called The Seven Gods by the Babylonians. Across many cultures these stars were said to contain the power to protect a person from difficulties through magical incantations. Today this magical quality is felt as a deep interest in metaphysical subjects or that which is hidden or secretive. Having this star in your life means that you can use your inner [...]

A commentator on social ills

This judgemental, insightful star reaches into your life through your Mars, your motivation and energy. This combination fuels your anger at what you see as social ills or imbalances in the world around you. You are motivated to correct them. This emerges from your early [...]

In the full version, this chapter discusses five stars and more than eight 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 Bellatrix in Orion

Bellatrix is a bright blue-green star in the constellation Orion. To the Egyptians Orion was god. It was from Orion that the Pharaohs emerged; they were his physical flesh and upon their death they returned to him. Bellatrix in the left shoulder of Orion is called, in some sources, the Amazon Star or the Female Warrior and, in others, the Conqueror or the Roaring Conqueror. All the stories around this constellation Orion are about effectiveness and power and the ability to [...]

[..] You want to devote your life to helping people who are fallen heroes; you are a nurse to the soldier who has been wounded in battle, a sports therapist who works with injured athletes, or a counsellor to those whose life circumstances have pushed them down. They are the wounded heroes, the non-glamourous [...]

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.

Sensing the Divine: Yearning for the enchanted world image

This is the story of two celestial birds, the heavenly swan, Cygnus, and the vulture that carries Orpheus' lyre in its beak, the same lyre which could tame wild animals. With these birds' ability to fly between earth and sky, they bridge worlds - the mundane practical world and the virtual world of dreams, desires, and wholeness. The swan, it was said, flew so high it was thought to reach the realm of the immortal gods, while the vulture carried the souls of the dead to heaven for eventual rebirth. So with [...]

[..] You care deeply about humanitarian or animal welfare issues and take an active stand in supporting such work. Whether you pursue this interest through direct action or through music or the arts, the driving force behind you is one of compassion or environmental concern. If, however, this is thrown out [...]

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