Stories from the Stars

Free Try-Out Edition
for Norman Mailer [Adb], born on 31 January 1923
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 Alkes in Hydra

Alkes is a small orange star in the cup which sits on the back of the Water-snake, the Hydra. Alkes to the Greeks was considered to be the Cup in which Icarus stored his sacred wine, as well as the prophetic Well of Apollo. In this sense the constellation of the Cup represented for many cultures the concept of the Sacred or Holy Cup, such as the Well of Apollo, the Celtic skull used as a prophetic drinking vessel, the Cauldron of Bran, the Holy Grail of Christian mythology, and [...]

[..] It could be that you carry a family name or display some aptitude that is a feature of your family's profession, such as an artistic gift which was reflected in the stories of an ancestor. Hence the way that others see you or remember you is associated with this family pattern. The struggle that can [...]

In the full version, this chapter discusses five stars and six 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 El Nath in Taurus

El Nath is a bright, blue-green star in the tip of the horn of the charging bull of Taurus. This place on the horn is the weapon of the bull, the sharp end of an attack. It was viewed as the Cosmic Bull's force and the ancients gave it power over the waters, or blood, of life. Now it symbolises forceful action which destroys the old and creates a new world order. To the Phoenicians, the bull-god was called Father of Men and was given the title of El, meaning bull. He was also [...]

[..] Having El Nath's quality as part of your life-passion gives you a desire to bring ideas or plans into being, to create a new order, a different way of doing something. You want to devote your time to giving life to something. This can lead you into such professions as police work, a crisis health worker, [...]

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.

Sibling Rivalry: Struggling with the light and the dark image

This is a story of the twins of the heavens. They have many different names but the Greeks knew them as Castor and Pollux, the two brothers that make up the constellation Gemini. They are symbolic of all polarities, the point of balance between black and white, the fragile nature of competition, and the understanding of antithesis. One twin is blessed living an uncomplicated life, never worried by internal conflict and full of self-assurance and optimism. The other twin is destined to wrestle with [...]

[..] You see imbalances in the world, injustices to yourself or to a loved one, or people who appear to be deprived while surrounded by those who are privileged. This is the flavour of the twins in your life and it propels you to bring reform and change to groups who are under-resourced, blocked, impaired [...]

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.
