Download or read book Symbolic Directions in Modern Astrology written by Charles E.O. Carter and published by Astrology Classics. This book was released on 2010-04 with total page 96 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In this book, Charles Carter (1887-1968) seeks a method of astrological forecasting that produces accurate results without the complicated calculations of Primary Directions. To quote Carter, an ideal directional system should fulfil four criteria: 1. No important event should pass without a direction. 2. No direction should pass without an event. 3. Events and directions should correspond narrowly in time. 4. Events and directions should correspond in character. (from page 10) To achieve these goals, Carter examined a number of symbolic systems. Symbolic because they were not based on any actual planetary movement, but rather, were arcs, arbitrarily chosen and then uniformly applied to all factors in the natal chart. In this book, he presents the best of his research. Among the systems of exceptional merit are the One degree, the Naibod (59'8"), the Duodenary (2o30'), the Sub-duodenary (12'30"), the Septenary (4 2/7 o), Novenary (3o20') and the Fractional Measure, which is based on natal aspects. Along the way, Carter's restless mind tackled the subject of death. Here, he discovered what he termed the Measure of Death. He says while it does not always forecast death, the Measure of Death is always present at death. Carter found symbolic directions to have real value in astrological forecasting. His work remains unique. This book was first published in 1929.
Download or read book Astrology and Popular Religion in the Modern West written by Nicholas Campion and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2016-04-15 with total page 291 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book explores an area of contemporary religion, spirituality and popular culture which has not so far been investigated in depth, the phenomenon of astrology in the modern west. Locating modern astrology historically and sociologically in its religious, New Age and millenarian contexts, Nicholas Campion considers astrology's relation to modernity and draws on extensive fieldwork and interviews with leading modern astrologers to present an invaluable contribution to our understanding of the origins and nature of New Age ideology. This book challenges the notion that astrology is either 'marginal' or a feature of postmodernism. Concluding that astrology is more popular than the usual figures suggest, Campion argues that modern astrology is largely shaped by New Age thought, influenced by the European Millenarian tradition, that it can be seen as an heir to classical Gnosticism and is part of the vernacular religion of the modern west.
Download or read book A History of Western Astrology Volume II written by Nicholas Campion and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2009-04-16 with total page 392 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Astrology is a major feature of contemporary popular culture. Recent research indicates that 99% of adults in the modern west know their birth sign. In the modern west astrology thrives as part of our culture despite being a pre-Christian, pre-scientific world-view. Medieval and Renaissance Europe marked the high water mark for astrology. It was a subject of high theological speculation, was used to advise kings and popes, and to arrange any activity from the beginning of battles to the most auspicious time to have one's hair cut. Nicholas Campion examines the foundation of modern astrology in the medieval and Renaissance worlds. Spanning the period between the collapse of classical astrology in the fifth century and the rise of popular astrology on the web in the twentieth, Campion challenges the historical convention that astrology flourished only between the twelfth and seventeenth centuries. Concluding with a discussion of astrology's popularity and appeal in the twenty-first century, Campion asks whether it should be seen as an integral part of modernity or as an element of the post-modern world.
Download or read book Fertility Astrology written by Nicola Smuts-Allsop and published by The Wessex Astrologer. This book was released on 2018-04-19 with total page 230 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Despite incredible and previously undreamed-of advances in modern medicine, for many women the issue of infertility remains a heart-breaking reality. Using a combination of traditional and modern astrological techniques, the author has delved deeply into the charts of hundreds of infertile women, and in many cases has unravelled what might be at the root of the problem. Sometimes it's a matter of location or timing, or it could be psychological issues in the relationship that are causing the block; whatever the reason, the author works closely with the couple - and often the medical profession - to produce results that are frequently positive where there has been no hope before. Although this is an advanced textbook for astrologers, the human element of the case histories is nothing short of inspiring, and from that perspective can be enjoyed by readers with no knowledge of astrology.
Download or read book Jung s Studies in Astrology written by Liz Greene and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2019-09-04 with total page 232 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Winner of the IAJS award for best authored book of 2018! C. G. Jung had a profound interest in and involvement with astrology, which he made clear in virtually every volume of the Collected Works, as well as in many of his letters. This ancient symbolic system was of primary importance in his understanding of the nature of time, the archetypes, synchronicity, and human fate. Jung’s Studies in Astrology is an historical survey of his astrological work from the time he began to study the subject. It is based not only on his published writings, but also on the correspondence and documents found in his private archives, many of which have never previously seen the light of day. Liz Greene addresses with thoroughness and detailed scholarship the nature of Jung’s involvement with astrology: the ancient, medieval, and modern sources he drew on, the individuals from whom he learned, his ideas about how and why it worked, its religious and philosophical implications, and its applications in the treatment of his patients as well as in his own self-understanding. Greene clearly demonstrates that any serious effort to understand the development of Jung’s psychological theories, as well as the nature of his world-view, needs to involve a thorough exploration of his astrological work. This thorough investigation of a central theme in Jung’s work will appeal to analytical psychologists and Jungian psychotherapists, students and academics of Jungian and post-Jungian theory, the history of psychology, archetypal thought, mythology and folklore, the history of New Age movements, esotericism, and psychological astrology.

This book was released on 2010-09 with total page 308 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The year before he wrote his famous book on fixed stars, Vivian Robson (1890-1942) wrote this one. In it, he put the distillation of four years intense work, spent in the British Museum Reading Room, where he studied very nearly every astrology book ever written, in English and Latin. To this day, he is virtually the only man to have ever undertaken a study of this magnitude.What makes the Student's Text-Book of Astrology unique is its unparalleled wealth of detail. Topics include Personal Appearance, Character and Mind, Health and Accidents, Finance, Occupation, and much more. For each, Robson gives specific rules of judgment and then supplies aphorisms collected from many ancient sources. The result is one of the most comprehensive astrology books ever written.." . . [I]n private conversation he would talk for hours on the science of which he was a master. Indeed, his knowledge, not only of astrology but of many other sciences, was phenomenal; and few who enjoyed his conversation could fail to go away with an enhanced knowledge of whatever subject had been under discussion.He will be remembered best by his two chief books, A Student's Text-book of Astrology and The Fixed Stars and Constellations in Astrology. Of these the former is deservedly popular and the latter is a classic, containing as it does a mass of information dating from the days of Greek mythology up to modern times." - C.E.O. Carter "I have heard him converse knowledgeably on a dozen and one different subjects. I really believe he knew something about everything, but so far as astrology was concerned his versatility showed forth in a phenomenal knowledge of his subject. To converse on astrology with him, even if only for one short hour, was inevitably to gain something new and valuable in the way of experience and information." - Dorothy Ryan In this Memorial Edition, Obituaries by Charles Carter and George H. Bailey; Prof. Hugh S. Torrens' monograph, Curator Turned Astrologer; an Appreciation, by Dorothy Ryan; an Afterword by the publisher, David R. Roell, a newly prepared index, Robson's Death Certificate, and more. The finest of all of Vivian Robson's books, back in print at last.

Download or read book Science of Astrology written by Ben Fitch and published by eBookIt.com. This book was released on 2016-07-23 with total page 350 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Science of Astrology: X-rays of The Divine has been written to provide readers with a general foundation in astrology and to address subject matter which is either absent or given insufficient coverage elsewhere; meanwhile explanations of rulership, exaltation and debility are excluded here, not least because the more elaborate parts of these systems seem to have been established rather arbitrarily. An understanding all of the technical explanations in this book is not required to have a good understanding of astrology; at the same time the mathematics used to illustrate physical laws here is not exhaustive. In Science of Astrology: X-rays of The Divine, the traditional system of horoscope construction is acknowledged and explained; however a new system of horoscope construction is introduced – one which represents the ecliptic in the form it takes independently of the Earth’s daily motion, at the same time as accommodating the season and standpoint of the observation. According to the new system, a new system of house distribution has been devised and ascendant and descendant points are given to the Moon. The new system, expounded in the chapter Mapping the Zodiac is intended to exist alongside the traditional system; however for simplicity it is used independently throughout the book. Other original subject matter in this book includes the incorporation of childhood location changes into the horoscope and the role of orbital resonance in informing planetary aspects. Science of Astrology: X-rays of The Divine begins with an explanation of the basic physical laws of the solar system which is intended to help enthusiasts adopt a more scientific approach to the study of astrology; the research presented towards the end of the book is intended to impress upon sceptics the value of the horoscope as a signifier of natural phenomena. Although the ephemeral conditions of meteor and extreme weather events are notable for their singularity rather than for any features which can be specifically attributed to the phenomena they accompany, there are certain astrological features which are distinctly recognisable among recorded cases of earthquake activity and it is possible that astrology will eventually form a part of preventative strategies in this field. Research is also presented which concerns the relationship between IQ and the planet Mercury. Just as for disciples of psychology or genetics the ardent practitioner of astrology is prone to adopting a two-dimensional view of his or her subject; as the practitioner become more calculating, they also become less amenable to other manifestations of truth. Clearly, to understand human nature and to render a true service to humanity, the practitioner must adopt a holistic view. The book is named Science of Astrology: X-rays of The Divine because just as how an x-ray reveals the skeleton of an organism, so astrology reveals the bare outline of God’s design. And just as how too much exposure to x-rays imperils the health of the organism, so can too great a study of this outline make the practitioner oblivious to the manifestations of the living God – that which exists beyond the dead indices of the celestial bodies. Hermes Trismegistus recognised the relationship between terrestrial events and the configuration of celestial objects and sought to render certain influences more enduring by soliciting their investment in inanimate objects. These objects were then assumed to promulgate the conditions extant at their inception. Part of Science of Astrology: X-rays of the Divine is concerned with the establishment of rituals, or active prayers, designed to ameliorate or relieve constitutional weakness or tension. Illness often has its origin in bad habits so by staging a ritual for a moment which is fortuitous to the individual, the individual can be emboldened to enact the necessary abnegation. If a ritual, be it direct naturopathic intervention or abstention from unhealthy practices, is staged to coincide with ephemeral conditions which offer reinforcement or stability to weaker or unstable elements of the constitution – upon interaction with the nativity, the ritual becomes as a talisman and reinforces the assimilation of the lesson prefigured by the ritual. Of course, the moment will be special whether or not it is deliberately ascribed ritual significance, but by consciously assigning an appropriate ritual to a fortuitous moment, the exertions of the intellect can be aligned to the exertions of the will.
