Consenting Stars

Stars forming configurations for good or evil. In Judges v. 20 we read that “the stars in their courses fought against Sisera,” i.e. formed unlucky or malignant configurations.

... Scourge the bad revolting stars
That have consented unto Henry's death.

Shakespeare: 1 Henry VI., i. 1.
