This is a much needed textbook on fixed stars and their relationship to the natal planets.
Bernadette Brady (Brady's Book of Fixed Stars, Samuel Weiser, 1998) has a mission - and that mission is to draw astrologers closer to the foundations of their art, bringing the glory and magnitude of the fixed stars into every day astrology, where she firmly believes they belong.
With our light-polluted skies and busy lives, it is easy to practise a form of astrology where we never actually look out at the stars or planets - and in doing so the author shows that we lose vital astrological information about our natal relationship to the heavens.
This book offers rare material on the detailed interpretations of an individual's natal heliacal rising and setting stars; these stars yield insight into the nature of one's soul and spiritual path.
Additionally, the author gives a comprehensive listing of the meaning of every star when combined with all the planets and nodal axis, for natal as well as predictive use. Tables are provided to help the reader find their own key stars for their time of birth allowing them to work with, and embrace, the sky using the methods that were first employed at the dawn of astrology.
