Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Most readers are aware of sun signs and the significance of zodiacal constellations, yet the importance of fixed stars, especially those outside the ecliptic (the plane through which the planets travel), is often overlooked in contemporary astrology. Brady has returned to the art's origins, reviving the ancient meanings ascribed to individual stars in both the northern and southern hemispheres. Fixed stars add their own influences to a person's horoscope (sometimes subtly, sometimes with drastic changes) through "paran" relationships with the planets. A star and planet are paran when they simultaneously occupy certain positions in the sky. Brady has accomplished the daunting task of charting the rising, culmination, and setting of 176 stars. She has researched their mythology in several cultures, and offers an interpretation of how each of the stars can affect a horoscope. While figuring paran relationships can be done with good computer software, such programs do not offer the rich history and revealing interpretations found in Brady's Book of Fixed Stars, and there is also something to be said for consulting charts and the nostalgia of old-fashioned, hands-on astrology. --Brian Patterson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
I'd been avoiding this book probably because I expected working with parans to be difficult. I succumbed to it during a recent chest cold and it turned out to be so clearly and well written that I had no trouble getting my one-track mind off the ecliptic. Brady's discussion of the history, charting methods, and meanings of the stars/constellations are enjoyable and enlightening, often providing a constructive viewpoint where classical interpretations do not. Computers make it unnecessary for astrologers to watch the sky, and this book has encouraged me to change my habits on that count. Unlike many astrology books, this one left me feeling ~better-educated~ and ecouraged me to research further on my own. Very useful for evaluating charts with questionable birth times. Looking forward to seeing what wider use of this method may yield over the next few years. And here's hoping Brady will develop a report module for Solar Fire!

Format: Hardcover
When this book had just come out, I attended Ms. Brady's Fixed Star workshop in Atlanta, May,'98.The lecture given was enthral ling ...Ms. Brady's interest & expertise in her subject were very impressive. Naturally, I signed up to have a Fixed StarReport done by the lady herself, & it has added "oodles" of info to my own charts, etc. Soon I had the book in hand & have been very impressed with it also. Not a beginner's book,perhaps,unless you have an interest in myths/archetypes.SolarFire4 software has the lists, etc., but no written report...you need this book to "read all about it". Beginning/Middle/End of life info can be yours!Which stars are connected to your chart/planets? Find out.. & be amazed!!

Format: Hardcover
Brady's Book of Fixed Stars brings the world of fixed stars to the tropical astrologer. Her method of delineation takes into account the ancient myths associated with the constellations, and her introduction of the ancient technique of star "parans" has consistently shed additional light on natal charts for me. My only quibble is her relying on Barbara Walker's "The Woman's Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets", which is notorious in some circles for wishful thinking and poor scholarship. Nevertheless, this book is an important addition to the astrologer's toolkit.

Bernadette Brady is obviously one of the great teachers of astrologers today in the modern world. The lady is trained in astronomy, astrology, the Christian religion, mythology and obliviously a Wiccan priestess. Those are only a few of her areas of expertise. She has with this book brought the ancient use of the fixed stars back into traditional western astrology. Since writing her books she has graduated with a master's degree in Astrology and Cultural Astronomy from Bath Spa University in England. She is a principal at Astro Logas and is authoress of "Starlight", an amazing astronomy/astrology program.

This book sheds a new light on fixed stars. Bernadette Brady delineates the fixed stars according to their psychological influence. She teaches some very useful new methods, based on (recovered) ancient techniques. Her interpretations are practical and to the point. A must read.
