Robert Hand wrote this book back in the 1970s. At that time, composite charts were new to America and to most of the Western world. Although John Townley is the person who is actually credited with bringing the technique to our shores, both Townley and Hand (who have also written the introductions for each other's groundbreaking texts) have pretty much structured the foundation of our contemporary knowledge on the subject. But there are differences to be noted in Hand and Townley's approach.
The most important distinction for me is that Hand describes a pretty unique method of using what's known as the "150 degree rule" for estimating composite midpoints for planets that are approaching a perfect opposition. Although many astrologers use the "150 degree rule" to correct errors that frequently arise in computer generated charts in which calculations yield such impossibilities as say Mercury and Venus oppositions, Hand alone tackles this problem for the other remaining personal planets that can appear as oppositions when you might want to consider them conjunctions. Hand suggests "if the planets in the two natal charts are more than 150 degrees apart, you should use both midpoints" (p 32) in your analysis. The reason for this is that "the two midpoints are nearly equal in strength." (12) This means you will treat the two planets more like an axis than a specific point, which is similar to the way in which we interpret the moon's nodes. This technique, which Hand explores with far greater depth than I can in this review, appears to be unique to Robert Hand. He uses it in his chart interpretations for the cases of Fred and Mary, and Freud and Jung, which are located in the chapter entitled "Case Studies.

Format: Paperback
I found this book to be a fantastic resource for someone such as myself who does not know the technical side of astrological aspects, or how to read the symbols in an astrological chart. When I read: "Composite Moon Trine Composite Jupiter" I didn't have a clue as to what that meant, UNTIL I was able to read what this configuration is all about in the easy-to-understand explanations given in this wonderful book.
As astrological aspects in composite charts are important when entering into any type of relationship, be it romantic, business, family, etc., this book is a great help to see how two people will interact with each other on many levels.
I can tell you that the composite chart interpretations I was given in this book were all astoundingly accurate. This is a great tribute to the exhaustive knowledge, research, and care that went into this book. Highly recommended!

Format: Paperback
This book will definitely let you know if your spouse or lover is the one for you. Before I got married I bought this book to analyze me and my husband's composite chart. Every explanation that Mr. Hand gave for our composite aspects and planetary and house positions were absolutely correct. I really wanted to know if my husband and I were going to be together for a long time. After reading the book, I'm very secure about my marriage and I am confident that my husband and I will be together for a long time. This book will show you the good and the bad parts about a relationship. I recommend it to anyone who is considering marriage.

With the exception of Marc Robertson, Robert Hand is the finest Astrologer I've had the privilege to read so far. He uses common sense compiled with the knowledge of Eastern/Western beliefs. His mid-point work and analysis is not only down to earth but very accurate. He includes variables, too, that are exciting to research on your own. His work is something you don't want to put down because you are bored or not getting any satisfaction. When people ask how I understand so much, I tell them. I've been an Astrologer for over 30 years so I know what I'm talking about.

It's an eye opener. I have studied the stars since I was 17.
Still @ it all these years later.
This particular book, won't be removed from
My shelves anytime soon.
You'll find yourself going back to it time after time!

Robert Hand is one of the greatest astrologers of our times, to be sure. He is a bit dour but if you can get past this ALL of his works are treasure troves of arcane knowledge. If you want an erudite, no nonsense approach to interpreting the Universe, this is the line of books for you. If you want silly,inaccurate "foo-foo" astrology based on general sun signs for the millions and roughly "guesstimated" and slapped together via monthly lunations or the daily movements of the moon, the web is plagued with this sort of rubbish. This is why astrology has gotten a bad rap - astrologers like Robert Hand restore credibility to an ancient and highly accurate science, when practiced correctly.

I have found his observations on composite charts to be extremely helpful and enlightening. Regardless of the current verdict on whether or not composites "work", I can attest to their validity in determing the theme or feeling of a relationship, from experience. This book is a valuable resource in helping to understand the energy at play when two people interact. I highly recommend it.
