In the past ancient astrologers and now modern astrologers use the Fixed Stars as part of their delineation technique in horoscopes. The fixed stars were used specifically in mundane astrology, or the astrology that forecasts world events and were not usually applied to personal or natal horoscopes. An interesting modernism has been to incorporate the use of the fixed stars in natal readings. Essentially the effects or the quality of the Fixed Stars (all astrological observation actually as astrology was the precursor to modern astronomy) are drawn from millenium of observation and are described as having the temperament or quality of the 7 planets in our solar system. The energy or essence of the outer planets of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are not used. And the Fixed Stars’ relevance is equated with the planet it is connected with in an individual’s horoscope or an important degree within the natal figure. Thus,the fixed star is more effective when conjunct, meaning standing with a natives’ natal planet or if the Fixed Star rises with the native’s ascendant, the ascendant being determined by the time of birth or when the fixed star is culminating with the “midheaven” or in lay terms, adjacent to the house of profession, public profile or prominence. The fixed stars are observed in the charts of rich and famous and frequently, the infamous!
A fixed star conjunct a natal planet is like adding the spice in a bowl of chili. The essence or quality the natal planet is enhanced by the Fixed star that would otherwise have been masked, or subdued.The conjunction with a Fixed Star, for better or worse fortifies whatever it is associated with. The Fixed Stars all have their own kind of character, yet are frequently described in terms our planetary understanding. For example the royal star, Regulus is described as being a benevolent star with the nature of Jupiter and Mars. For instance, Jupiter conjunct the royal star Rigel, especially and only if in close proximity, by this I mean within minutes of corporeal conjunction of one another, the native will receive accolades for writing, will gain celebrity and fame for their writing acumen and this will be long lasting, one of an enduring fame.
It can be quite a revelation to have your Fixed Stars delineated, and if you are interested in a comprehensive look at the Fixed Stars in your horoscope and who knows it may just be your fate to win the lottery as promised by the Fixed Stars! Book an appointment and I would be more than happy to look at your lucky Star!
