2019 certainly is a bumper year for books on fixed stars!

Another book that was published in February 2019 that escaped my attention:

Fixed Star, Sign and Constellation Magic by Christopher Warnock (2019)

From the Amazon description:
Quote:
In Fixed Star, Sign and Constellation Magic, Christopher Warnock, a noted traditional astrologer and a leading astrological magician, explains the history and practice of the magic of the fixed stars, signs and constellations. Included are original images by the contemporary esoteric artists Robert Place and Nigel Jackson of the 15 key talismanic fixed stars from the descriptions in the original medieval and Renaissance sources. Also included are medieval and Renaissance images of the talismanic constellations and of the 12 Zodiacal signs. These images along with the step by step instructions allow readers to pick astrologically auspicious times and create their own fixed star, sign and constellation talismans. The book also includes appendices with many medieval and Renaissance original sources on the fixed stars, signs and constellations including sections from Cornelius Agrippa's Three Books of Occult Philosophy, Picatrix and the complete Hermes on the 15 Fixed Stars.

Thank you, I'm proud that my Mercury is pretty much where is Eric Burdon's on Algol Very Happy
The interesting moment also in his chart is that his Mars ruling 5th house and squares stellium at Algol. Usually Venus, Mercury, Saturn associates with musicians but in his case hard Mars aspects contributed to his achievements.

thanks yurly for the additional insights! i have venus on algol, or thereabouts.. i was fascinated with what binary starts are.. perhaps there are different cycles within cycles and our generalizations fall flat from time to time.. either way eric burdon was a real pioneer in the music world and an inspiration for many.. he was going and participating in the blues before any of the later folks were.. the whole blues rock format - of which i am doing a gig today - has a lot to thank eric burdon for as i see it.. cheers james

By the way my Venus is around 2Taurus and that's suppose to be at another malefic star location nearby(not royal though). Forgot name of that star, just remember that Pamela Anderson has some angle there, IC or MC Very Happy

Eric Burdon's chart has IsisTranspluto in 1 degree Leo 18 minutes. So early in his life it would have transited the antiscia of those planets near Algol, such as the antiscion of Venus in 4.5 degrees Leo. IsisTranspluto transiting an "open" Venus in particular would have been very painful. To Mercury it may have adversely affected his ability to learn at school.

His Moon is 15.5 degrees Scorpio, antiscion 14.5 degrees Aquarius, so the transit of IsisTranspluto to his "closed" Moon from around 1967, one degree applying, should have had a very beneficial affect on his life. As his Moon is 45 degrees to his Moons Nodes, this would be influenced by important beneficial contacts, people he met.

The second pair of transits of IsisTranspluto to his Venus, Mercury, Uranus etc from about 1996 when it was 24.5 degrees Leo, one degree applying, should have been positive for the areas that were so painful in his early childhood.

Only Neptune aspects his chart angles. If either of the chart angles was as low as 9 degrees of the mutable signs, it would make more sense as the Moons Nodes and Moon would aspect his chart angles. The Moons nodes aspecting chart angles is an indicator of fame. Maybe he was born a few minutes earlier than the time shown on the Astrodatabank chart, making either the Ascendant or Midheaven 9 degrees of Sagittarius/Virgo?

His Venus, Mercury and Uranus aspect Pluto and also Mars, though Mars and Pluto don't aspect as the orb is too big, but connected through Venus, Mercury and Uranus. Presumably it is this pattern in his chart which gave him his great talent as well as a lot of pain in very early childhood.

I suppose you could add the layer of information that these planets are conjunct Algol, but they tell their tale quite well even without it, and that they are affected by the conjunction of IsisTranspluto and Pluto in the early 1940's, which was the hallmark of the holocaust as well as the second world war, intense energies.

Hello Everyone,

Just to say Oscar Hoffman's new book on fixed stars was published last month. Its entitled: Fixed Stars in the Chart : Constellations, Lunar Mansions and Mythology

I haven't got my copy yet but will be looking forward to reading this work soon.
