Star/s [DeVore]

Stars were classified by the ancients as "fixed stars" to distinguish them from the "wandering" stars — which, when their orbits were discovered, became known as planets, in that they revolve in a plane. Stars have a proper motion of their own, but owing to their remoteness this motion could be measured only by observations taken over a protracted period-far in excess of a mere lifetime. There is no reason why the term should not now bc abandoned in favor of the simple designation of "star."

By some astrological authorities the stars are credited with an influence of their own, when in conjunction and parallel with a planet, either at birth or in transit. A star of the first magnitude on the Ascendant or Midheaven at birth is said to indicate that the native will become illustrious within his sphere of life-a "star" in social, political, or commercial life. The two large stars, Aldebaran and Antares, which are in the tenth degree of Gemini and Sagittarius, respectively, when directed to the angles of the horo- scope, are said to produce periods of severe stress. They are deemed more powerful when in the angles.

Those who include the stars in their delineations appear to agree that the influence is entirely confined to a close conjunction with a birth planet to within from 2° to 5° in Longitude, and 1° in Latitude, and that it has no influence by aspect. Certain individual degrees-of the zodiac appear to possess specific influences, and these may have some connection with stars which tenant these degrees, even when untenanted by planets. Further confirmation of this theory is to be found in a work by Salmon, wherein he divided each sign into six Faces of 5 degrees each, "because in every sign there are various stars of differing natures." v. Degrees, Individual.

Stars visible to the unaided eye number less than five thousand. Those near Polaris can be seen only in the Northern Hemisphere, while the Southern Cross and nearby stars can be seen only from the Southern Hemisphere. The following list of important stars visible in the Northern Hemisphere are listed in alphabetical order, giving the longitudes under which they will be found in degree order under Degrees, Individual, where further data may be found.

[The following list from ASTROPHYSICAL DIRECTIONS is substituted for the original DeVore list.]

This list is in alphabetical order. The same list of stars follows in zodiacal sequence.

Star of Bethlehem [Astro*Index]

Several theories have been advanced as to the nature of the `star' which appeared at the birth of Jesus of Nazareth. The triple conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn on the dates BC7 MAY 29, BC7 SEP 29, and BC7 DEC04 would hardly have gone unnoticed. A pulsar (PSR1913+..) has been discovered which might offer another possibility.

Star of Bethlehem [DeVore]

Commonly conjectured to have been the conjunction of Saturn, Jupiter and Mars which occurred about 2 B.C. It is supposed that the astrologers, the "wise men of the East," were endeavoring to locate a child born at the point in terrestrial latitude 4nd longitude from which this triple conjunction would occur in the same celestial latitude and longitude, and in the midheaven of that particular geographical location. As this was one of the grand mutations (q.v.) it was presumed that a child born at the exact place and hour that would posit this important satellitium (q.v.) at the cusp of the Tenth House, would be marked by Destiny to become the initiator of a new epoch in world history. It may be that the legend of the manger was devised as a record of a birth, connotated to this grand conjunction in 2 B.C.

Star of David [Astro*Index]
