While I was reading about astrology on internet, I come across this very nice book Cheiro's Book of Palmistry, Numerology and Astrology... This is a great book. Explains everything very nicely from scratch. You will easily find an e-book for this.

All d best
Happy Reading

William Lilly's work was NOT the first astrological textbook written in English

Check out Peter Stockinger's NEW TRANSLATION

Lightbulb Re: Astrology Book Recommendations

Hello, I see this thread as one of the most useful for astrologers. I want to introduce you a book by a slovak scientist E. Pales. I'm a beginner astrologer and it helped me to understand a lot. In fact, I'd never get to know astrology and other spiritual basics without this book.

I basically recommend this book to everyone, not only to astrologers. It's name is Angelology of History (in english yet available only in a shortened brief version called Seven Archangels: Rhythms of Inspiration in the History of Culture and Nature). This book is not only about history even thought this world can be understood best through the history. The book is about everything: about the world, the universe, the human, nations, countries, nature, history, architecture, painting, music, fashion, literature, incarnation, astrology, angels, wars and dinosaurs.
When I had decided to obtain the book and heard that the author spent like twenty years by writing it, I was asking myself how can anyone spend so much time just by working on a single book. After I had read the book I was asking myself how the hell it took him only twenty years? It contains a huge amount of information. Carefuly organized information, which add to each other. If you like finding links and you're interested in mentioned topics, it is a „must have“. Links such as why a huge number of inventions emerge in one era, one must hurry not to be overtook by other inventors. At other times during a particular decade several brilliant musicians appear in just one city or in one country where noone like them in several hundreds years before or after them. At other times wars break out throughout the whole world, the plague comes, expressionism and red colour is put into practice in art, pointed caps, shoes and masculine clothing comes into fashion, a style of flames is put into practice in architecture, people start to eat more meat and human values change in the way that the biggest honor is to be brave in a fight. And on the end of such era it is like a bell's ringing for the whole world thus there comes piece and another spirit of era comes into play. Those spirits of era (I don't know if the word „ghost“ wouldn't fit better here since english is not my first lang.), according to author's theory, don't influence only a human behavior but also influence nature (evolution of species and of all living, outbreaks of diseases, natural disasters, clima etc.). Trends in issues about which we usually think that have nothing in common appear here. These spirits of eras are something like inspirational forces, are 7 of them (archangels of 7 basic astrological planets) their eras are of the same lenght and their influences overlap. Such eras have fractal character thus the highest level era takes millions of years (on this level recognized according to the current rulling sign) and it is divided into shorter and shorter eras – the shortest have 354 and 72 years and they repeat periodically. For example: Of the same character as mentioned war era (Martial period )is the Cretaceous of Mesozoic when extreme predators evolved also dinosaurs prepared best for defence (Scorpio era).
It also states that not only historical eras have their spirits, but also each continent and nation have their own unique spirit (an elaborated knowledge of Tetrabiblos). It's for example the reason why bodily parameters change at people who have moved to an other continent. And human nations don't have only their spirits but also unique missions, e.g. a mission of jews was to create the best body possible for entry of Jesus. Jews are (or were) inspired by the same force which makes drawing in of the attention of the spirit towards matter and thus its strongly focused on physical reality (the Archangel of the Moon) – manifests itself in eras when the white colour and realism dominate in art, novels start in literature, rationalism plus empirism starts in science and foremost the materialism everywhere.

To be more precise the book is a scientific study with all neccessary requirements. Although it is written by a comprehensible language to be clear to everyone. Argumentation goes on fluently and systematicaly so it won't let you swimm in any abstract notions. The author makes conclusions regularly which are often contradicting the modern science. However, his conclusions are much more reasonable.
Furthermore he doesn't stop at discovering and describing such links, he continues on towards incarnation, life after death, angels (individual unconciousness) their superiors (collective unconciousness) and angel hierarchies, about which he speaks as they're really existing. Same in the case of demons and archdaemons. The influence of such an archdaemon is well shown and characterized in a thrilling chapter about the last Martial era of 1917-1989.

Pales' work is not publicly well know because it's a total overkill for many scientists (it can hurt the Catholic Churche too). It's also a strong incentive for society where peope aren't interested in spirituality. The evolution of the human soul and foremost the immortal spirit is the main theme of Pales' works.

It's neccesary to say that the described principles aren't author's discovery. It's an ancient wisdom and he elaborates it, proves it scientificaly by statistics and connects together many branches of sciences. He is also not the only one who works with these ideas. Such principles appear e.g. in works of R. Sheldrake.
Ideas of spiritual influences were publicly known before Darwin's theory became popular (almost at the end of Moon's rule in 1879). But before publishing his book Darwin noticed that he is well aware that all the species were created by the God and his inspirational forces so he doesn't even expect to be succesful with the theory. So the idea is not so long forgotten.

If you're interested and wanna more info feel free to ask. I also apologize for mistakes I certainly did since my english is not superb.

Re: Astrology Book Recommendations

One of my favorites for beginners:
The Astrologer's Handbook - with complete instructions for interpreting any natal chart and step by step instructions for casting your own by Frances Sakoian and Louis S. Acker

It's really great and I find myself returning to it often.

Also, I apologize if this was already suggested! I scanned through and didn't spot it so I thought it was worth adding.

THIS IS THE LINK:

Re: Astrology Book Recommendations

I read this awesome astrology books years and years ago, and I would like to revisit it, but I can't rememeber....
I thought maybe it was rudhyar.... It just explained each sigh very theroughly, and then showed how the next sign arose from the one before. Very earthy explainations... explaining how seasonal and cyclic and evoltutionary the revolution of the signs is. Great Book, does it sounds familiar to anyone?

Re: Astrology Book Recommendations

Well, I'll try it... But I don't remember it being about Sabian symbols at all, the book I read way back when. It was only about astrology signs and nothing else. Maybe it wasn't him, because it wasn't very esoteric or abstract, like his so often are... It just explained the signs as they arise from the previous one. I'm pretty sure it was a male author. I read it the year 2000 or abouts... but it was older than that....

Re: Astrology Book Recommendations

At your level of learning, you might want to look at Demetra George's Astrology and the Authentic Self.

It's a fusion of trad and modern, and mostly it teaches you how to pull all the disparate parts of the horoscope into some kind of coherent whole.

Re: Astrology Book Recommendations

I am a newbie student in Astrology, and was given this book.

The Manual of ASTROLOGY by Sepharial

It seems a pretty old book but written in clear manner, and handy for referencing in most topics of the subject. I will keep using this book even after I getting more newer books.

Re: Astrology Book Recommendations

The only real astrology sources that you'll get are, for me, the traditional ones

Read William Lilly's Christian Astrology. With all of the volumes combined, you get about 900 pages of astrological work. Also, JupiterASC showed me a pretty good astrology book

Re: Astrology Book Recommendations

Just ordered

The Inner Sky
The Changing Sky

by Steven Forrest

These books seemed a bit too verbose to my liking, but seemed written for starting Astrology students like me , and also getting excellent reviews for novice Astrology readings, hence felt right books for me.

The Lilly's books are in my future To Buy list. The free eBook by Valen in the link seems also nice. Managed to download it. Thanks.

Re: Astrology Book Recommendations

Steven Forrest's books have arrived, and I have finished reading The Inner Sky in 2 days. It was a good read, and I enjoyed reading it.

I am now reading The Changing Sky, and it looks also excellent for studying Transits and Predictions. I recommend them highly.

Re: Astrology Book Recommendations

"Introduction to Traditional Natal Astrology" by Obert is a good place to start, in learning the basics of the traditionalist approach.

Re: Astrology Book Recommendations

Also check out Robert Hand's "Whole Sign Houses"-the book that first talked about the original whole sign house format, and which led me into experiments which demonstrated (to me) the superiority (accuracy wise) of the whole sign house format over all other house system models...

Thank you for your recommendation. I will check them out soon.
Do you use the Whole Sign Houses for every type of charts? - even Horary?

I worked with Planets in Composite back in the early '80s and went from there into the work of John Addey, doing a whole range of harmonic charts, but I eventually went back to synastry. Interestingly, my favorite book of Hand's from the psychological astrology period is Planets in Youth since it isn't just applicable to childhood, but has quite a bit of "meat" in it for general chart delineation. I haven't caught up to his traditional stuff yet.

I still have not read single thing about relational astrology or synastry or composite chart stuff. As far as these topics are concerned, my mind is literally "tabula rasa".

I was planning to start with Steven Forrest's Skymates books, then move up to Rob Hand or Arroyo.
