God has called His children stars. This is recorded in Job.
Job 38:7 When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God
shouted for joy?
Read: Luke 20:36 (kjv). The short answer is yes.
The term sons of God, is almost ways attributed to directly created beings in the OT , like Adam and the angels (messengers).
In The New Covenant, the term takes on a different meaning by our new nature in Jesus Christ.

Are these stars angels? (verse 4*):
Revelation 12 is a heavy subject.
I'll try to summarize only the verses you brought up.
And rightly divide it so the subject is apparent and understood.
Revelation 12 covers a very long history of time.
From the world that then was, to the current age, and the events leading into The Lords Day (2 Peter 3).
Revelation 12:1-4 (kjv)
1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with
the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of
(This woman is Israel. A crown of Twelve stars representing those 12 tribes. The sun and moon fixes this as a zodiac representation
(Psalms 19 ;Genesis 1:14 kjv) meaning this was Gods plan in the making Long before it was enacted and eludes to events Before The Foundation Matthew 13:35

2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to
(The child is Jesus Christ, labor pains that bring about the birth of a the age of Salvation)
3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red
dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his
(This goes way back to the world that then was standing in and out of the water, recorded in Genesis 1 (Not to be confused with Noah's flood which only pertains to this current second age). Peter briefly touches upon this in 2 Peter 3).
Pay attention to the seven crowns upon his heads. This is a similar description to the First Beast of Revelation 13 but its not the same .
That multi-headed world political system that Satan will use. So Revelation 12:3 has a different set up suggesting Satan at some distance past used a similar system to draw Gods children away from Him. That would be before, the recorded events of the creation of this age). Consider reading Ezekiel 28.
4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did
cast them to the earth: *and the dragon stood before the woman which
was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was
( Casting to the earth is akin to birth. As Christ would teach all must be born, to participate in His Spirit of Salvation John 3.
Satans actions in the world that then was , caused God to end that way of life (Jeremiah 4:19-27 to wit all fossil remains belong), and brought in this second age of Salvation where all must be born of women.
Apparently one-third is an exact number.
Factor in all the people living today,
all that have died up until this point, the possible number yet to be born before this second age concludes ,
and (those who wont be born we can exclude) .One-third of all Satan deceived once before.) Its Logical that, God is saving the one-3rd to be born at the tail end of this age, for When Satan is here in his new system, proclaiming to be God and Messiah, that these same people can be tested before we go into The Lords Day. And yet he must continue a short space after.
- and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
(This is self explanatory The woman being Israel, specifically two tribes Christ would come through, Satan's attack on Israel from Eve in garden to the fallen angels on the daughters of Adam in Genesis 6 on, to causing David to number his armies, Herod of Judea ordering the execution of all male children two years old and under in Bethlehem etc.
All attempts to prevent Christ from entering this world. Even attempting to tempt Christ in the wilderness; finally entering Judas to betray Christ. Satan's attempts to thwart Gods plan to Save His children. Us.
But it plays into Gods plans Genesis 3:15; Hebrews 2:14 kjv.
