Format: Paperback
"Essays on Astrology" contains a wonderful collection of essays by Robert Hand that was published in 1982. The Table of Contents is as follows:
1. The Moon, The Four Phases of the Feminine
2. The Wave Theory of Astrology
3. Mercury, the Modulator
4. Handling the Malefics
5. Geocentric Latitude: Some Second Thoughts
6. On Creating a Science of Astrology
7. A New Approach to Transits
8. Crises of Human Growth
9. Astrology's Second Dimension: Declination and Latitude
10. Symbols of the Father Complex
11. Dodekatemoria: An Ancient Technique Reexamined
12. The Ascendant, Midheaven and Vertex in Extreme Latitudes
13. The Age and Constellation of Pisces
Although I enjoyed all the essays in this book, some real standout titles include: "The Moon, The Four Phases of the Feminine," which discusses a comprehensive schema for interpreting the moon in relation to mythological feminine archetypes; "Crises of Human Growth," which covers such themes as Saturn Returns and the Midlife Crises; and "Symbols of the Father Complex," which covers the father archetype signature (not the male parent). This book is very hard to find, and these essays are as thought provoking now as when they were first published over twenty years ago. The one drawback is that you will benefit more from this text if you have some fundamental understanding of astrology; since I would classify this text as advanced, yet easy to read. All in all, this is a great classic astrology text to add to your collection.

This is some heavy stuff. If you are really, really into astrology I would say go ahead, but otherwise you run the risk of it being Greek.
