I have very little memory of taking Latin back in my Undergrad class and was wondering if anyone will help or have suggestions. I want to make a motto for my family crest. I like the idea that we are stardust but want to also be general so that the saying may have other possible meanings. So far I have come up with the Phrase "Ex astris, ad astra surrexerimus" Me figuring it out piece by piece: "Ex astris," to be "From the stars" Astra being in O-Declension and plural I wasnt sure there is a future perfect version(I think?) Implied meaning "(We) from the stars" "ad astra surrexerimus" to be "we will arise to the stars" surrexerimus is the future perfect, active, plural, first person of surgo from what I can tell would mean "we will arise" astra in this context is future and again in O-Declension that means it doesnt have a time-based tense (correct me if wrong). I am not sure of the sentence structure as "Ex astris, surrexerimus ad astra" would be more the literal translation from English. I am thinking the action word is at the end with Latin though, correct? I may be completely wrong too... so I appreciate any response.
