limit module import to only certain symbols?

Say I have the following module named "mymodule"

import string
var1 = 'a'
var2 = 'b'

And I want to import its symbols into another script:

from mymodule import *

This will import 3 symbols (string, var1, var2)

Is it possible to limit it so that import * will only import specified
items? So that:

from mymodule import *

Would import only var1 and var2?
