Module Twelve/ Day Two - Activity
1) Watch the video first then from the windows in the additional object section of the extended chart selection page, choose a selection of fixed stars you would like to put in your chart. To select more than one hold down ctrl and select three or 4, then click on to show the chart. Take note of the area of life it’s in and any aspects it has especially the conjunction and the oppositions. Then look for additional things that stand out and remember for transits the orbit should be really no more than 1 to 2° for really getting the subtle effects that these stars have in their expression.
One thing to note also is you may find some of the fixed stars degrees in the chart are actually slightly different to their current astronomical positions. It will only be ever so slightly however it sometimes add extra interpretation if they happen to be on the cusp or very close in an aspect to another planet.
2) With the fixed stars you put on your chart do a one-page interpretation for each one.
So for example you would interpret the fixed stars meaning first—and then connect that to the interpretation of the planets wherever they are in the chart that they are officially associated with according to their lore and the text books—and then how its expressed through the sign on the cusp of the house it’s in and wherever its natural planetary ruler is and then the type of activities within the respective house it’s in, and also if it happens to be conjunct another planet. *note: Conjunctions are the only aspect recognized in fixed stars interpretation as stated in most reliable documentation on the fixed stars.
3) Use the fixed stars in “creative astrology” and have some fun with them. Get to see how they have their benefits when they are used creatively. Each with their different expressions can be an invitation to find out more about oneself and gain some extra knowledge and wisdom through what they represent. Remember their meanings are coloured by the conditionings of each culture, so if its “creative astrology” you’re doing you may want to experiment and add some intuitive meanings of your own and observe if they match.
