I cannot put this book down. And I absolutely must read the previous volumes. Then I will read this Vol 4 again!
Because it is a transcription of a seminar there are references to the previous volumes, expecting the reader to have knowledge of what came before. Yet it is very informative on its own.
Astrology claims we are primarily our sun-sign yet when dealing with personal issues it always seems the focus is on an outer planet's aspect to our inner planets. In isolation.
Understanding how an individual's planets in sign, house & aspect are integrated is difficult because of seeming contradictions. By looking at these 3 planets as psychic components of the personality the authors add personality & character to the planets. My Ah-Ha moment was this statement by LG "One simple definition of Mars is that it is the fighting principle for the Sun, and in a sense the fighting principle for all the inner planets which lie within its orbit." I now have an image of a armored (or amour-ed) warrior defending the Queen (or King) filled w/ nuance of character flaws and strengths.
Of course the planets are discussed in many other forms: mythology, current beliefs, audience participation and reference charts. The author's blending of the spiritual, the science of psychology, and the purely personal makes for a valuable resource in understanding and tolerance. The subtitle "Building Blocks of Personal Reality" is misleading as the work actually removes the block-concept and helped me to see a more cohesive personal whole. 3 down 9 to go.
You do need to be familiar with basic astrological, and even psychological, terms, but it's written in a clear manner, and has a good number of useful examples.
A must have!!!!!
How we should get to know and listen to that core part of ourselves.

This took us through a world unrelated in the name of "archetypes". I thought it was more like "crap". It was also quite difficult to navigate to what you wanted to find. Read morePublished on January 29, 2013 by Alibi
