Boyd’s Bible Dictionary:

(strew). All the heavenly bodies, except sun and moon, called stars by Hebrews (Gen. 15:5; Psa. 147:4). The “star in the east,” seen and followed by the “wise men,” and designed to announce the birth of the Messiah, was, according to some, wholly phenomenal, and to others, natural. Stars symbolize rulers and princes (Dan. 8:10); angels (Job 38:7); ministers (Rev. 1:16-20). Christ is “the bright and morning star” (Rev. 22:16).
