Aspects in Astrology: A Guide to Understanding Planetary Relationships in the Horoscope - Sue Tompkins 2002

Amazon Synopsis: Illustrates how aspects can offer a profound depiction of an individual and his or her destiny.

  • Contains comprehensive sections full of interpretations for every planetary combination.
  • Concepts are explained through the use of actual birth charts and diagrams.
  • A core textbook at the Faculty of Astrological Studies in London.

Aspects are an essential piece of the astrological puzzle when it comes to interpreting and using the information that astrology can give us. It is not enough to know the placement of the planets on the horoscope. It is the relationships between the stars and planets that let us grasp the destiny of the individual. Aspects describe the drama of our lives--the complex configurations that influence what will happen to us over time.

Sue Tompkins, a fellow of the Faculty of Astrological Studies in London, shows how to interpret aspects when doing daily astrological readings. She uses the lives of real people to plot the aspects and offers examples of every possible planetary combination.

Detailing the influence of oppositions, trines and elemental trines, and cardinal, mutable, and fixed crosses, Tompkins shows how aspects provide the energy in the chart that transforms the horoscope into something symbolizing an alive and vital human being. With Aspects in Astrology, Tompkins provides both the novice and the experienced astrologer the evidence and concrete methods needed to grasp the vast knowledge offered to us by our horoscope.

For the first time, Adrian Duncan shows how to empower clients and create transformation by harnessing horoscopes.

Duncan has created an innovative manual that masterfully guides astrological practitioners and interpreters through every aspect of working with clients. Going beyond astrology simply as a diagnostic tool, Astrology: Transformation & Empowerment shows how to harness perception and sensory states to create positive change in one interpretive session!

Part 1, "Setting the Scene," explains how to read the client before reading their chart. Body language, mind reading, and the elements are touched upon. Part 2, "The Major Players," depicts specific planetary combinations and what they entail in regard to emotional responses, relationships, and the future. Finally, Part 3, "Transformation Methods," teaches ways to expand awareness of the problem at hand, reframe the reading, expand sensory skills, and discover new communications systems.

Making the Gods Work for You: The Astrological Language of the Psyche - Caroline W. Casey 1999

Amazon Synopsis: Making the Gods Work for You presents internationally renowned author Caroline W. Casey's remarkable doctrine of Visionary Activist Astrology. In this reverently irreverent mystery school disguised as a book (in which each of the planetary gods is a professor), we are invited to think of our lives as spiritual detective novels. For example, Venus teaches us that our affinities and quirks are clues to our unique mission and contribution to the world. The astrological language of the psyche is a tool for deciphering and revitalizing this sense of mission. Casey teaches you how to expand your range of intimacy with the ten parts of yourself represented by the planets, here called gods. You will learn how to use this language to reverence and feed the forces of your psyche that connect you to very real external forces. This book intends to catalyze a movement to engage the imagination of all people with a sense of humor and a desire to do collaborative good in the world.

Expanding on the ideas first presented in her popular audiotape series, Inner and Outer Space, Casey explores the archetypes at the heart of human relationships, aspirations, and spiritual quests. In an engaging narrative enlivened by stories, fables, exercises, and meditations developed through her work as an astrological counselor, she provides a practical system of personal and collective liberation. Making the Gods Work for You provides us with innovative principles to live by and rituals inviting us to become active, dynamic participants in the dance of life. We can then become increasingly conscious players on the team of creation, capable of sharing our gifts with the world at this crucial historical time.

True As the Stars Above - Neil Spencer 2002

Amazon Synopsis: What do Princess Diana, Ronald Reagan, Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes, Winston Churchill, William Shakespeare and the leaders of the Third Reich have in common? They all consulted astrologers. Why? How does astrology work, and if scientists like Richard Dawkins go out of their way to rubbish it, why has it never been so popular? Most books on astrology have either been how-to manuals, cheap guides to the year ahead, or forbidding academic tomes on subjects like the transits of Pluto - until now.

True as the Stars Above is a irreverent, intelligent defense of astrology, and an examination of the extraordinary role it has played in the past and still plays today. Among some of the revelations in the book: Margaret Thatcher sought astrological advice after the Brighton bomb. A significant number of the world's major financial institutions have an astrologer or two on their payroll. British intelligence employed an astrologer during WWII because they were convinced Hitler was doing the same. Ronald Reagan's Chief of Staff (to his fury) was forced to keep a colour coded calendar, with green for good days, red for bad days and yellow for 'iffy' days, in line with the views of Nancy's astrologer. This is astrology demystified, whether it's the ongoing row over statistical evidence for astrology; the myth of The Age of Aquarius; computer dating by star sign or why Gone With The Wind's Scarlett O'Hara is definitely an Aries.
