Composed of essays from 14 different astrologers, the book is a delightful gumbo of different perspectives and topics. What I found remarkable was that within every category (mundane, natal, traditional, etc), the essays were all extraordinarily competent. This is not a book of "young people finding their footing"- the essays here are all the product of years of blood, sweat, tears and insight.
Due to my practice and proclivities, I was immediately drawn to the essays on mundane and traditional astrology, which I found highly gratifying. Yet as I explored essays outside of my defined areas of interest, I was pleasantly surprised to find myself learning from perspectives I do not usually consider.
As a full time astrologer myself, I often get the "I've heard this all before" feeling when I crack open a new astrology book. Not this time. Yet not only does the material feel fresh to a veteran such as myself, I also felt that I could suggest many of these essays to a student of astrology without worrying that it would go over their head. The book not only touches on a wide range of topics, it also speaks on a variety of levels. A rare and difficult feat, with kudos due to the editors, as well as the writers.
In summation, I am confident in heartily recommending "Astrology: The Next Generation" to both grizzled astrology buffs and green students of the arte. Bravo!
These 14 rising stars are prolific writers and presenters at national and international conferences. They are
also largely self-published because waiting for a publishing house to recognize and approve your work could
take forever--and there's no time to waste. The writers in this collection have an average
of several books to their name and over ten years of professional experience. They are self-starters and self-promoters for good reason--they know their stuff.
Frank C. Clifford, the man behind the idea of collecting these new voices was first introduced to astrology in his teens and at age 31 took over running the London School of Astrology. His essay "The Sun, Moon & Midheaven in Vocation" offers a new view of combining the influences of these three factors with clear examples. I feel inspired to try this technique with clients after reading Clifford's essay. Clifford's advice to "follow your chart and your heart" resonates strongly with my work in helping clients to move toward authentic and meaningful work. His phrase that describes despair as "Coming from choosing to be someone other than ourselves" is one I believe and will certainly adopt in vocational consulations.
Maurice Fernandez, another astrologer who began his professional work in his early twenties has accumulated over 20 years of experience in teaching, lecturing and writing two substantial books since his beginnings in the field.Read more ›
