Fixed Stars in my Natal Chart

Dating back to antiquity, there are approx. just a few 100's of the thousands of fixed stars used in astrology currently, and used according to their brightness and latitude.

Fixed Stars in my Natal Chart

Post by Sharkman » Mon Oct 21, 2013 1:44 pm

I have noticed that the astrology program that I am using lists three "Fixed Stars" in my chart. I am curious to know how to interpret their potential influence in my overall natal chart. Also would also like to know how to interpret their additional influence when looking at my transit chart.

Hi Sharkman,

'Fixed Stars' have many 'meanings', much of which are 'basic'.

If you really want to go into this matter, I recommend Bernadette Brady's book: 'Brady's Book of Fixed Stars', Pub: Samuel Weiser, Inc., 1998.

Warning: it isn't simple, such as is Ebertin - Hoffman's "Fixed Stars and their interpretation" - which is helpful with regard to the positions of many fixed stars, in which the interpretations are based on older texts.

admin,

Thank you for the response. I am pulling up links on-line for as much information as i can and as time permits. I just thought that it was interesting that one of the programs I am using shows them in my chart.

I am particularly interested in learning more about the Fixed Stars Regulus, Antares, Aldebaran and Fomalhut and references to Caput Mortuum (Medusa's Head) in the Perseus constellation.

Admin,

I am plotting them on my natal chart and I'll let you know what I find. I am starting with what I believe are described as the "Royal Stars" in some of the ancient cultures, Regulus (North/ Raphael), Fomalhut (South/ Gabriel), Aldebraran (East/ Michael), Antares (West/ Auriel-Oriel), the Watchers.

Because they lie close to the ecliptic I think that they may have some "maginfying" influence if their orbs lie within close proximity to my natal planets. Not sure yet what those influences may be, but it seems that they may exhibit certain influences that may similar to planets. I'm still doing a lot of reading and trying to intuit what information I'm gleaning. Trying not to over think it, more like feel the impressions of what I'm seeing and studying.

There are other "Fixed" stars that lie further away form the ecliptic in other constellations that may have less "influence" because of their proximity to my natal planets also, but I am uncertain at this point what to make of it all.

I have discovered that some astrologers use "fixed" stars in their readings of charts. I'm very interested in gaining a more clear understanding of these observations.

Hi, I would like to ask about fixed stars too! it is alleged that the 23th degree of scorpio is influenced by fixed stars. But I am confused because I don't know if I should take into account the fixed star Agena which lies on the 23 47'' of scorpio, or the fixed star Serpens which is on the 22th? could you tell me finally if the 23 th is good or bad?

Fixed stars are a study all of their own and it is easy to get caught up with them as they are fascinating. I gave up on this some time ago as the problem is that most texts still describe them as either ‘really BAD’ or ‘really GOOD’. However, I would recommend “Brady’s Book Of Fixed Stars” by Bernadette Brady, published by Samuel Weiser, which is very comprehensive to say the least.

You might like to look at this site (if you haven’t already done so): http://www.constellationsofwords.com/st ... phabet.htm which lists the stars with diagrams and descriptions.

‘Serpens’ isn’t a star per se, it’s a group of stars http://astrologyking.com/constellation-serpens/ with specific stars therein.

Do continue with this and please tell us what you discover along your way. Just don’t get caught up with ‘good’/’bad’. :roll:

Best,
