Both astronomically and astrologically speaking, every star is the source of all matter in its own system. Planets, comets and meteors are the by-products of the birth of a star.
Constellations have an astrological influence of their own. Actions of the fixed stars are more akin to a sharp and precisely timed caffeine shot. A star acts like so: suddenly raises you to extreme heights then suddenly drops you to the opposite extreme.
The stars also point at your resonance with others, especially in cases when the Moon is conjunct to a fixed star.
I’ll use my personal fixed Star as an example: orb 0° Spica conjunct my moon in Libra 23’5°. The moon in my chart sits right on top of this star at my birth. Both highs and lows are given with this attribute: Spica gives success, renown, riches, a sweet disposition, love of art and science…but also unscrupulousness, unfruitfulness and injustice to innocence. Success, wealth and honour from Mercury, Venus or Jupiter people.
This example shows that stars do favor certain planetary energies and clash with others.
You can at any point embody the positives or negatives of a fixed Star aspecting your chart: depending on your own self awareness.
Usually the influence of that Star depends on the Orb (closeness) and aspect (exact angle from personal planet)
