Astrology meant the study of all light in the heavens: wandering stars, fixed stars, shooting stars, or hairy stars (comets).
We call the “wandering” stars planets today because the root Greek word planētēs means wanderer.
“Fixed” stars are the stars that form the constellations.
In addition to carrying the symbolism and mythology of the constellation they are members of, they also have individual symbolic meanings.
Traditionally, the fixed stars have a very fated reputation. However a more modern perspective is to see them as additional psychological motivation and energy accompanied with gifts and/or abilities awaiting development and exploration.
To expand your understanding of your personal connections to the fixed stars and their constellations and how they can inspire and empower you, investigate my Star*Profile reading.
