Journal for Star Wisdom 2010
The Journal for Star Wisdom includes articles of interest concerning star wisdom (Astrosophy), as well as a guide to the correspondences between stellar configurations during the life of Christ and those of today. The guide comprises a complete sidereal ephemeris and aspectarian, geocentric and heliocentric, for each day throughout the year. Published yearly, new editions are available beginning in November for the coming new year.
According to Rudolf Steiner, every step taken by Christ during his ministry between the baptism in the Jordan and the resurrection was in harmony with—and an expression of—the cosmos. The Journal for Star Wisdom is concerned with these heavenly correspondences during the life of Christ. It is intended to help provide a foundation for cosmic Christianity, the cosmic dimension of Christianity. It is this dimension that has been missing from Christianity in its two-thousand-year history.
Readers can begin on this path by contemplating the movements of the Sun, Moon, and planets against the background of the zodiacal constellations (sidereal signs) today in relation to corresponding stellar events during the life of Christ. In this way, the possibility is opened for attuning, in a living way, to the life of Christ in the etheric cosmos.

Peter Treadgold (1943-2005) was the creator of Astro and Astrofire, the computer programs he designed and wrote for research into Astrosophy. The programs are used by many researchers around the world, and Astrofire is a particularly far-reaching creation, opening up extraordinary possibilities for research. It contains a database of birth and death dates of historical personalities, as well as a star catalog with more than 4,000 stars. It is this program by means of which the monthly ephemeris pages are produced for the Journal for Star Wisdom. Read more about "Astrofire" at the Sophia Foundation website.
Thank you for sharing your perspective. As so often happens, when encountering different points of view, we are asked to rethink our own. Your letter has asked just that. In taking in your opinions and investigating our differences, I have found an even deeper alignment with the mission of the Starfire group and the Journal for Star Wisdom.
Those in the Starfire group who were students of Willi Sucher have shared the fruits gathered from their personal relationships with him. This has deepened my understanding of our collective mission. So many of you were gifted with Willi's noble example: to leave others in freedom and by all means to continue doing research. Willi's statement that he had “only scratched the surface” leaves all his students with a great deal of work yet to be done.
I am grateful for your willingness to express your point of view. Together we strengthen the possibilities so endless in scope. It is my experience that differences create a chaos into which higher truths may reveal themselves. This, of course, demands that our egos remain free of attachments. If truth is our common aim, we are walking with Christ. I believe that is what Willi, above all else, would be asking of his students.
It is my prayer that our differences are grasped as opportunities lest we fall into the divisiveness that entombs greatness.Sincerely,
Claudia McLaren Lainson
