The Romance of the Stars was an anthology of symbolic fiction by Bessie Leo, the wife of leading early 20th century British astrologer Alan Leo, who was herself an accomplished theosophical astrological thinker. The component stories were designed to illustrate astrological principles. Several of them are prefixed with astrological figures representing the birth charts of their leading characters.
