FIXED STARS NATAL ASTROLOGY PROGRAM by Dr. Randall C. Roffe
INTRODUCTION TO FIXED STARS
This program printsinterpretations for conjunctions of planets (listed by house rulers),ascendant, midheaven, and other house cusps to over 60 major "fixed" starsand star clusters, all distant suns in their own systems. Called"fixed" because of their unchanging constellation patterns, againstwhose backdrop the planets move, these stars are the brightest stars we see atnight. Bright stars generally not used for interpretation are those over 45degrees north or south of the ecliptic path; and in "crowded" areasof the heavens, only the most powerful stars are selected for interpretation.
Many of these starsinterpreted here form part of the familiar zodiacal constellations, and many ofthem are also our nearest neighboring star systems, being in most cases lessthan one hundred light years away. Interpretation of fixed stars is the key toreconciling the tropical signs and the precession of the zodiac, thus understandingthe relationship of astrology to the visible sky.
Thesestars affect your life, personality and expression
moststrongly of all celestial bodies beyond the planets.
