Most readers are aware of sun signs and the significance of zodiacal constellations, yet the importance of fixed stars, especially those outside the ecliptic (the plane through which the planets travel), is often overlooked in contemporary astrology. Brady has returned to the art's origins, reviving the ancient meanings ascribed to individual stars in both the northern and southern hemispheres. Fixed stars add their own influences to a person's horoscope (sometimes subtly, sometimes with drastic changes) through "paran" relationships with the planets. A star and planet are paran when they simultaneously occupy certain positions in the sky. Brady has accomplished the daunting task of charting the rising, culmination, and setting of 176 stars. She has researched their mythology in several cultures, and offers an interpretation of how each of the stars can affect a horoscope. While figuring paran relationships can be done with good computer software, such programs do not offer the rich history and revealing interpretations found in Brady's Book of Fixed Stars, and there is also something to be said for consulting charts and the nostalgia of old-fashioned, hands-on astrology. --Brian PattersonFrom the Back Cover:
Brady's Book of Fixed Stars is the newest, most complete book on fixed stars since the publication of Vivian Robson's Fixed Stars and Constellations in Astrology. In this single volume, Brady provides:
-- Paran Maps and Star Phases for over 60 stars.
-- New insights into the natal use of fixed stars, as well as their use in mundane astrology.
-- Extensive appendices of Heliacal Rising and Acronychal Setting graphs and tables to help astrologers find rising or setting dates for any given location.
-- A listing of 176 stars with their 21st-century Ptolemaic precessed positions versus their commonly-considered positions based on Ulugh Beg's methods.
Brady melds modern techniques with Egyptian and early Greek procedures and mythology so astrologers can apply these techniques to modern chart interpretation. Her methods open a window on the field of fixed stars, revealing how a major star in a person's chart indicates the stage of life in which it is active, and how it reveals the person's life journey through the mythology that the star represents.
