Editorial Reviews

From the Author

When I wrote this book, there was very little material available about how to apply classical methods to a reading, whether that reading was predominantly classical or modern in scope. This book was designed to allow the modern astrologer to "sample" classical methods, without feeling the need to jump completely into classical without trying it out. Thus, it is not a complete compendium of classical methods, but a series of stand-alone pieces which can enhance any reading.

About the Author

Lee has a Ph.D. in Botany from Rutgers University. She is author of The Ultimate Asteroid Book (1988), Essential Dignities (1989), The Book of Rulerships (1992), Classical Astrology for Modern Living (1996), The Martial Art of Horary Astrology (2002), Astrology of Sustainability (2011), Traditional Medical Astrology (2011), Classical Solar Returns (2012) and a translation from the French of Papus' Astrology for Initiates . Her correspondence courses, Classical Studies (horary, natal, electional, medical, gaming, mundane and advanced horary), bring classical astrology to the forefront as an astrological system. Dr. Lehman was a Professor and Vice President for Academic Affairs at Kepler College.
She served the astrological community as Research Director for NCGR from 1987-1999, as UAC Board Treasurer from 1990 -1999, and as UAC Program Chair for UACs 1995 and 1998. She is a Life Member of the National Council for Geocosmic Research (NCGR), the International Society for Astrological Reasearch (ISAR), and the American Federation of Astrologers (AFA).

Lee was the recipient of the 1995 Marc Edmund Jones Award, and the recipient of the 2008 Regulus Award for Education. Along with Esoteric Technologies, Lee has created two software report writer programs written specifically for the classical astrologer: Solar Writer/Medicus, for medical questions and decumbitures; and Solar Writer/Classical, for natal delineation in the matter-of-fact style of the Renaissance astrologer. She has developed the innovative add-on to Cosmic Pattern's Sirius: Who Wins, which captures the rules of Bonatti for warfare for use in researching the outcome of sporting events. Her Perennial Herbal takes ancient astrological herbalism onto the web.

This book is not for beginners or people who are new to Astrology. If you are already conversant in the subject and want to broaden your knowledge of more classical methods of interpretation, then this is a good book. The author has a maddening habit of using rather technical terms like "Sidereal Zodiac" without pausing to explain what they mean. I bought this book in hopes I could read her other book, "Essential Dignities" where I found you're supposed to already know key concepts because she doesn't give any explanation of them whatsoever. But there's useful stuff in here on Astrological topics that are not very much in use nowadays, but probably should be. The book is a bit arcane, but for a serious student of Astrology, I would have to recommend it.
