Editorial Reviews

Review

Blaschke is an excellent teaching writer. He knows exactly how to introduce his material in small, precisely measured increments, cite his authorities with clarity and brevity, and guide the reader through virtually frustration free assimilation and mastery of progression theory and application. After reading this book and working within the guidelines presented, many of us might begin to wonder why we had not learned these techniques sooner. The answer is that there probably weren't enough teachers or writers of this man's caliber available when we first began the study and practice of astrology. -- Joan Star, Geocosmic Magazine

I was completely delighted with this book and his findings and I love his metaphysical and spiritual approach to the subject. Robert has covered all the elements that are needed in the understanding and use of progressions, making it easy for any student or seasoned astrologer to incorporate them into their work...I highly recommend this book. It should be in every astrologer's library. This book is a very pleasing and enlightening read! -- Lynda Hill, FAA Journal- Australia

In this interesting and useful book Robert Blaschke describes how he combines secondaries, tertiaries and minors - the three progression cycles of a day for a year, a day for a lunation and a lunation for a year - into a single approach for prediction and counseling purposes...I can recommend this book. The ideas and the writing are fresh and stimulating. There is much in it that can aid the astrologer in his or her practice. -- Ken Gillman, Considerations Journal

There are not many books on the market on progressions. This is the only one that I know of that discusses progressions from a philosophical and metaphysical perspective. This is a highly original work, one that doesn't rehash what is found elsewhere but rather builds on it. What you will find in this book is a very well-thought-out framework for linking secondary, tertiary, and minor progressions. Blaschke believes that secondary progressions correspond to the physical body, tertiaries to the emotional body, and minor aspects to the mental body...definitely worth checking out. -- Donna Van Toen, NCGR memberletter

Format: Paperback
This is a very needed and profound book that looks at the technique of progressions with new eyes. The author advocates that the three main astrological progressions types are not three interchangeably useable techniques, but aspects of the same experience unfolding in different times in the mental, astral and physical planes of manifestation, the physical being the latter in time.From this he states that all the events that can occur in the life span of an 84 year old, have already occurred in the progressions in the first 6 and 1/2 years of life, highlighting an equivalent to Childhood Development Theory in traditional Psychology within the astrological framework. He also writes about triggers that activate progressions into being, reminding astrologers of the work of CEO Carter, retrieving some fundamental laws delineated by this great astrologer. Many other aspects of progressions are covered ( there is an excellent section on retrogradation of progressed planets) and the book , probabily not suited for the beginner, is refreshing in its insight and spark. My feeling is the Blaschke might well be the "Steven Arroyo" of the 21st century, combining impeccable technique with penetrating insight into human nature. I am anxious to read his next book.

Format: Paperback
Robert Blaschke has done a very good job on giving us a very detailed overview of all different sorts of progressions and their connections. His book makes it clear that astrology is a very complex art indeed and I doubt if any astrologer will find the time to try to unfold the progressions for every client in such a thorough way as is explained in this book. Nevertheless Robert Blaschke has done it and with the help of the computer one can gain time. Sometimes I find this book too thorough, too detailed, combining too much sorts of progressions (secondary, tertiary, minor). Delineating gets difficult (you know the proverb about the wood and the trees...). Anyway if you look for a book about progressions read this one !

Format: Paperback
Robert Blaschke has begun his Astrology: A Language of Life book series with a well-written exploration of an area that once considered, becomes a fascinating adventure. By providing a straightforward way of intrepreting (and predicting) the birthchart over time, Robert opened a new world for me. Progressions covers the subject in a way that captured my imagination and led me into a new interpretative world.

... for a thorough grounding in the interpretation of the various forms of progressions. Blaschke keeps his eye on the ball of the fundamentals (what progressions are formally) while elaborating techniques that are consistent and detailed. This book shows what can be done from an interpretive perspective when methods are well-founded in the structure of the astrological symbols/grammar being used.

The subject needs more books like this one, even if the wealth of methods presented is more than an astrologer is likely to use in normal practice.

Format: Paperback
The forward by Rob Hand says it best when he mentions the over-abundance of beginner astrology books,this book starts to fill the void on the other end of the spectrum. Book I in Blaschke's series is a must-have for any advanced student of astrology wishing to dive into the world of progressions and Blaschke's complex view of their relationship with spirit-matter. Aside from that, this book is a treasure chest of fine tuned, detail-oriented astrological method.

I would not reccomend this book for beginning or intermediate astrology enthusiasts, but it is a must have for advanced students.
