Fixed stars are just stars.
(Fixed stars vs. wandering stars, aka planets).
I don't know much about Algol.
Here's what a book of mine says, though -
"Caput Algol in 24 Taurus is considered to be the most evil of all fixed stars. If you notice a planet in a chart at 24 Taurus, or Caput Algol's current position, it is worth taking extra safety procautions in life because it can mean being more suspeptible to accidents."
(Although the referrence was to Algol conjunct a -natal- planet.)
Is Algol at 22 Taurus now? The book didn't give the current degree.
I have to wonder... on a forum like this, is \"What\'s your sign?\" an innocent question or still a pathetic pick-up line?
