Fixed stars are celestial bodies that look motionless in the night sky, in contrast to planets, which move in relation to the stars.
Fixed stars are utilized in astrology to provide further insight into a person's chart and personality qualities.
Fixed stars have a strong influence on zodiac signs and the houses they control. The fixed star Regulus, for example, is associated with the Leo zodiac sign and is considered to provide courage, leadership, and prosperity.
Antares, the fixed star linked with the Scorpio zodiac sign, is thought to provide tremendous passion, ambition, and strong willpower.
Each zodiac sign has its own set of fixed star affiliations, and their placement in a person's astrological chart can reveal their strengths and weaknesses.
Fixed stars can also interact with planetary influences in a person's natal chart to reveal more about their personality and life path.
For example, a person with the fixed star Spica in conjunction with Venus, the planet of love and relationships, may be talented, artistic, and have a high potential for success in creative disciplines.
Similarly, when combined with Mars, the fixed star Algol, connected with the Medusa story and considered a malefic, can signify a person prone to violence and rage.
Fixed star energies can be used in astrology to help with personal development and success.
You may align yourself with fixed stars' energies and use them to your advantage if you understand their effect on your chart.
