You may conclude that this “star” is a physical event and not spiritual warfare.
Wormwood would be an asteroid or comet falling upon the waters, polluting the water that leads to death.
Maybe this represents a nuclear reactor fracture, heating up the core and water that runs into the surrounding waters (Tokyo 2011, Chernobyl 1986). The result is spoiling water and soil, killing and destroying life in its path.
I don’t think so, and here is why.
Please read Revelation Chapter 9:1-11 for another “star” that falls upon the earth.
This is clearly not physical/visible but spiritual/ demonic.
The name of this “star falling from heaven” is the principality/power over the bottomless pit, Abaddon (named in verse 11).
This “star” is the king/ruler over the “locusts” described in verses 3-10. Those locusts are demons from where Abaddon is the ruler – the Abyss.
Abaddon is the destroyer (Proverbs 27:20). But these locusts (demons) cannot kill the humans, as the men/woman pray for rocks to fall upon them.
Wormwood is from the principality and power corner of the universe that brings Abaddon – one of Lucifer’s chief rulers (principalities and powers). Abaddon is another one of those stars cast out/down with Lucifer.
Consider these verses in regards to “stars” and you will see a pattern: Isaiah 14:12-20, Daniel 8:9-11, Jude 1:13, Revelation 6:13 and 12:3-4. I trust you will conclude that it is more likely the stars of Revelation are not a comet or an asteroid but demonic.
Revelation contains a great deal of spiritual warfare language – principalities and powers -coming to earth (allowed by God), carrying out wrath – much like the Death Angel released over Egypt.
The Death Angel (could that be Abaddon the destroyer?) passed over the children of Israel (with the blood of a lamb, per God’s protection), killing the firstborn of Egypt (the unrighteous).
Therefore, it is my interpretation that the evil/demonic spirit of Wormwood will fall upon anyone’s soul holding bitterness, rooted in any un-forgiveness and resentment towards others.
Those souls holding bitterness receive all the more from this “falling star”.
