Fixed Stars and Constellations

A planet between a star and Earth brings out the fixed stars’ potential. The effects are modified by planetary aspects, eclipses and transits. Conjunctions by longitude only.

To find the position of the fixed stars in your chart, you should correct for Precession. Positions used in the fixed star pages are for the year 2000. The precession rate is 1° per 72 years or 0.838′ per year. Move the planets in your horoscope forward to catch up with the positions of the stars for 2000.

If you were born in 1928:
2000 − 1928 = 72
72 × 0.838 = 60
Add 60′ (1°00′) to your planets.

If you were born in 1970:
2000 − 1970 = 30
30 × 0.838 = 25
Add 25′ (0°25′) to your planets.

Spectra of Stars and Planetary Natures

The basic effects of fixed stars are determined by their color. Stars do not have the nature of any of the planets, as provided by information in Ptolemy’s works. This comparison, at best, was very rough and inaccurate. [Rigor, p.241]
