5.0 out of 5 stars An innovative look at progressions, October 9, 2000
By 
This review is from: Progressions (Astrology: A Language of Life, Vol. 1) (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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thorough, May 2, 2000
This review is from: Progressions (Astrology: A Language of Life, Vol. 1) (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 !

5.0 out of 5 stars A thorough and innovative work!, September 6, 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Progressions (Astrology: A Language of Life, Vol. 1) (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.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the one I recommend, August 6, 2007

... 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Advanced Astrology Students, December 19, 2008
By 
This review is from: Progressions (Astrology: A Language of Life, Vol. 1) (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.
