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 Dubhe in Ursa Major

Dubhe is the bright white star in the middle of the back of the great bear, Ursa Major. Ursa Major is the bear which has watched over the earth since time began, appearing to walk upon the land as it rotates around the North Pole. The central characteristic of this bear is her persistence and reliability. For eons she has faithfully marked out the seasons and generated stories of cyclic renewal. At a personal level, to have this star quality means that your life is woven [...]

[..] You consider your home to be sacred, not for its outward appearance but for its protective energy, and all your strength will be brought to the fore if you sense that it is under threat. Your slow steady approach to your ideas or to those you love is directed towards building them a home, a safe place. So reach [...]

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 Agena in Centaurus

Your vocation is touched by Agena, a blue-green star below the left knee of the Centaur's leg. It is in the constellation Centaurus, also known as Chiron, who orbits around the South Pole. Centaurus carries a spear and moves toward Ara, the altar, to make a sacrifice to the gods. His story is that of a being both a healer and a teacher who heals his own personal wound through sacrifice. Agena represents one side of this sacrifice, which is also one approach to healing, and [...]

Working with grassroots groups

What you are drawn to, what you want to give your energy to, is people, not a single individual but rather groups of people. They may be your family, your immediate community, the tribe, or on a larger field it could be the people of a nation or a global village, linked [...]

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 Shadow Walker: Living with both destruction and achievement image

Your life is touched by a star story that captures the tension, passion, and dynamics of two different forces. One side of this story features the ancient figure of a woman who is deeply angry at injustices, and willing to take on the world in any context to correct such wrongs. This is the star Algol and she represents a force that can be both supportive and destructive. Her theme is focussed obsession, and she will guard the ones she loves with her life. This obsessive energy can rise like kundalini [...]

[..] You are fascinated by other people and deeply curious about social stories. You have an insatiable desire for historical and anthropological knowledge and you form friends from many different communities and ethnicities, willingly exploring their journeys. Yet this response is not simply about gathering. It is [...]

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