Review

"Astrologer, Psychotherapist, teacher and author Greg Bogart is without a doubt one of the finest astrologers and writers of our time. Seamlessly blending astrology, psychology and spirituality, with his daily experience as a psychotherapist, this author's latest outstanding book is a true feast for our heart, soul and mind and without a doubt, will prove to be be a classic text in the field of psychological soul based astrology for many years to come. Offering a compassionate and comprehensive insight into working consciously with astrology as a therapeutic tool for our greater development and unfolding, the wealth of interesting case studies illustrate the author's clear delineation of astrological techniques, presenting easily applicable understanding to all areas of life, including individuation, relationships and vocation. With six extensive sections, this book plummets the depths whilst also remaining easily readable and digestible throughout, helped by the author's humble and generous sharing of relevant experiences from his own life.

This deeply insightful book is ideal for anyone who seeks meaning and understanding amidst these great changes and beyond. I highly recommend it as a core text for all astrologers as well as for counselors, therapists, psychologists, teachers and healers. This book is truly life enhancing." -Margaret Gray, MSW D. Psych. Astrology, The International Astrologer



"Consciousness, wisdom, and healing are all achieved through synthesis. In this fine new work, Greg Bogart has given the reader just that--a synthesis of astrology, psychology, and a beautiful panoply of spiritual teachings infused throughout the text. Bogart has also achieved something quite special, an integration of the work and perspective of one of the founding fathers of modern astrology, Dane Rudhyar. Rudhyar lives on through one of his most devoted students in a form that is of benefit to all serious practitioners of our celestial art and science." --Alan Oken

"You are going to totally love this book if you are serious about mastering the art of astrology, and if you are interested in how all thinking, both conscious and unconscious, interfaces with planetary alignments." --Michael Lutin, author of SunShines: The Astrology of Being Happy

Format: Paperback
The book Planets in Therapy, by Greg Bogart, is a great book. Many astrology books are called "cookbooks", giving you only "recipes" for planets, signs, and aspects. But this is a book about processes, as well as information on prediction, analysis, and a little cookbook type information. Everything has been included that anyone could possibly need to do a good consultation or learn more about astrology. This book is informative, and yet, it is easy to understand. Reading this book is like reading an entrancing story. It is not a dry tome. I have been a professional astrologer for years and I found things in this book that will improve my work, as well as my own life.

There are excellent discussions on signs, planets, houses, aspects, transits, progressions and even solar arcs, and there is a good chapter on predictions. Included are stories of how planetary events affect real people. He explains what they are and how to use them. There is an easy to understand chapter on Dane Rudhyar and his writings, including Rudhyar's Lunation Cycle. I especially like this section since Rudhyar's writings are often obscure and hard to understand.

He emphasizes the importance of engaging a client in the session and encouraging give and take. I have been doing this for years, even though I was trained in the old "meat and potatoes" way. The therapeutic way is the best way to balance out astrology. Many psychologists are quietly using astrology in therapy with incredible success. The information in this book will help you become a therapeutic astrologer. Being able to predict events is wonderful, but you don't want you, your friends, or your clients to go home wondering, "now what I do with this information about my life; what do I do when the event happens?

Format: Paperback
"Planets in Therapy" advances a 21st-century astrological model integrating the wisdom of astrology, psychology, and spirituality. Simply put, I wish this book had been available when I began to study astrology 40 years ago.

Fundamental astrological principles are defined with a rare clarity and precision that is essential for students who inevitably struggle with the challenge of "how to find the person in the chart" ... trying to figure out how all the random pieces fit together and interact with each other in a holistic identity. Following an eloquent explication of core principles, the book ventures into an illuminating exploration of the complex and multidimensional dynamics of synthesis.

Bogart's lifelong dedication to research, active consulting practice, and extensive training in psychotherapeutic disciplines enables him to deliver actionable insights that are truly life-changing to clients. He shares empirical observations about how astrological energies actually do operate in our lives, as opposed to the abstract conjecture and hypothetical musings so pervasive in the frustrating rhetoric of other astrological content.

This is a book that can be read on many levels. The beginning student will be equipped with all the relevant information to approach a reading. Serious students will deepen their understanding of archetypes-in-action by developing symbolic sight. And professional astrologers will be heartened by Bogart's unwavering dedication to advancing astrology as a 21st-century healing modality.

Written in an entertaining and conversational style, Planets in Therapy is like reading animated notes from an astrologer's casebook -- intimate, authentic, and engaging.

You'll certainly find yourself within the pages of this captivating book.

Presenting an approach to therapeutic astrology that has its roots in Jungian psychology and in the humanistic and transpersonal astrology taught by Rudhyar' whom Dr. Bogart corresponded with regularly in the early 80's, the purpose of this book is to `consider how astrology's archetypal symbolism and precise time measurements can aid us in emotional healing and the creation of more resilient and loving relationships'. This is amply fulfilled.

With the first three parts of the book covering Psychological, Transpersonal and Therapeutic Astrology, Dr. Bogart easily moves into the issue of astrology and mental health.
