Re: Astrology Book Recommendations

Hi Unukalhai!

Thanks for your SR-related book recommendation! I just checked content of this book on Amazon web site and it really looks interesting.
Unfortunately, there is no way that I could find this book in bookstores in Sarajevo, but I will find some way to order it.

Thanks a lot!

Lela

Re: Astrology Book Recommendations

That is a daunting subject! So Many good books to choose from. Pick a subject or an author and explore it, one at a time so it's not overwhelming.
All the suggestions are great. I would definitely get a book on the Sabian Symbols. Dane Rudhyar's "An Astrological Mandala" is excellent.
Also, I particularly like the work on Karma, past lives and Pluto by Judy Hall, a talented Brit.
Good luck. I know you will amass a great collection and come to love it.
You might check ebay for anyone selling collections, one never knows.
Check for occult book stores in the larger cities, as well.

Re: Astrology Book Recommendations

Hmmm, well, I've just ordered Liz Greene's 'Barriers and Boundaries' and Celeste Teal's 'Planetary Triggers.'

I recommend:

The Luminaries - Liz Greene

This really gave me insight into my horrible T.Pluto cj Moon, which has been going on for two years. The book sat beside my bed for most of that time.

Astrology of Fate - Liz Greene

An intellectual read that's fab to dip in and out of that I was lucky enough to find in a charity shop years ago.

The Horary Textbook - John Frawley

A very good guide to casting horaries written in Frawley's usual Terry Prachet style.

The Luminaries is the book I most often lend to people though.

Re: Astrology Book Recommendations

"Born on a Rotten Day," is such a good book! I highly recommend it as a funny read -- it's not going to help with natal charts or anything, but it is hilarious.

Post Re: Astrology Book Recommendations

Hello Everyone

I recently read a good book entitled "Astrology for Beginners: A Simple Way to Read Your Chart" and I think it fills a necessary void. It shows you how to to read your birth chart without having to learn all the intricacies of astrology. It gives you lots of interpretive material including the meaning of your chart pattern - something few books even go into.

When I first discovered astrology I wanted to understand my own birth chart but I really didn't want to undertake a serious study of astrology. While there were plenty of books teaching in-depth astrology, there was nothing that simply explained the birth chart. Well now there is. The publisher is Llewellyn and the author is J Hampar.

Re: Astrology Book Recommendations

If I had to walk aound with only one astrology book it would be Betty Lundsted's "Astrological Insights Into Personality." I have around 160 astrology books and that book is still great. I can reread what she says about Sun signs and aspects of mine over and over again and always find something I missed before.

Re: Astrology Book Recommendations

I've owned hundreds of astrology books over the years, and have reviewed quite a few.

I currently own only two astrology (physical) books:

"Christian Astrology" by William Lilly (Regulus facsimile edition)
"The Combination of Stellar Influences" by Reinhold Ebertin

I also think they are the best two books for beginners to start with.

Re: Astrology Book Recommendations

How to be a Great Astrologer - is an excellent book, It's a book on the aspects, and there is a good chapter on the Nodes. The book is precise and I refer to it a lot, when I don't want to sift forever through other books. He analyzes the aspects separately.

A quote: [deleted overly long quote in violation of forum rules - Moderator]....

Archetypes of the Zodiac - by Kathleen Burt - Offers a broader understanding of the signs, mythology, eastern philosophies, Jungian archetypes. The book has great depth, and it's not what you have read in other books.

Re: Astrology Book Recommendations

Kudos!

Some very good recommendations here!

But I would put at the top of the list, Liz Greene, anything by her, but especially "Saturn, A New Look At An Old Devil".

More than anyone she coalesced the traditional jargon into a modern, people oriented, psychological view of the mystical and mythical.

Of course Robert Hand, Noel Tyl, Jeff Green and others mentioned have been great in teaching me, but Liz put it all in focus.

Re: Astrology Book Recommendations

I've already started a thread here on his correspondence course, but I can't recommend this book enough!

Carl Payne Tobey was a little known astrologer who made many significant discoveries in astrology. No one I've found has even so much as heard of him, and I've seldom seen him mentioned in any other astrology books, nor any of his methods.

He is most notable for discoveries like the Leo/Clockwise count to the zodiac, which associates the first house (personality) to Leo, instead of Aries, and counts the opposite direction, ending with Virgo.

He is also responsible for the rediscovery of the Secondary Ascendant, vital to the Secondary Chart.

I recommend this book to anyone who wants a new look at astrology. It includes chapters on the Secondary Chart, Coincidence, Aspects and, of course, every sign and house. He was a user of the equal house system.

Carl Payne Tobey was a mathematician, abstractionist, and scientific mind who approached astrology with skepticism, and was convinced by evidence!


And yes, I originally recommended this book 6 months ago and am only now elaborating on it. Click the link on his name for an interesting biography, and check out Carl Payne Tobey's Correspondence Course FREE online!

Re: Astrology Book Recommendations

Hi,

I'm looking for a very easy to understand, not too technical book on understanding and interpreting progressions. I have a good selection of books but not really anything covering progressions in any depth. One thing I don't want is anything t heavy and technical, or that introduces another 1000 techniques that I am not ready for yet!

I'd value your input as to which of the following books might be most appropriate for me..

The Art Of Predictive Astrology-Carol Rushman
Identifying Planetary Triggers-Teal
Predicting Events With Astrology-Teal
Delineation of Progressions
Progressions by Robert P. Blaschke

Thanks

Would these books help me understand and interpret progressions - they look quite technical and I am imagining they are not written in the most light hearted of ways but I could be wrong.
