(adj)

Meaning

relating to the stars

1st Sample Sentence

In ancient times, it was everywhere believed that an individual's nature was in large part shaped by sidereal influences.

Root

sidus sideris (star, group of stars, constellation) (Latin)

Mnemonics

SIDEREAL is pronounced as SY-DEE-RIAL and not SIDE+REAL, therefore CELESTIAL is a more appropriate suggestion, as it not only rhymes with sidereal, it also has the same meaning-relating to the stars or the constellation. SIDE+REAL. the STARS by our SIDE are REAL
