"What are the degree symbols? Are they archetypes in the collective unconscious? Are they the divine ideas of Plato and the neoplatonists?" --Martin Goldsmith, author of The Zodiac by Degrees - 360 New Symbols

Astrology is the fascinating science and art that delves into who we are, why we are here, and why we do what we do. A lesser known component of Astrology is the degree symbols. When viewing an astrological chart, there are 360 tiny lines that intersect with the circumference. Each line is reprented by a degree, and there are 30 degrees within each Sign. Since there are 12 signs in the Zodiac, this adds up to 360 symbols. The degree symbols are not glyphs; rather, they are a symbolic picture of an individual's personal mythology and orientation.

If you were to have a chart generated by software or somewhere online, you'd be given the specific natal location of the Sun, Moon, Ascendant, planets, and so on. You'd also be given the degree of the placement. For example, according to my natal chart, the Sun is in 14 degrees Scorpio and the Moon is 18 degrees Aquarius. Whether using an astrology book or a generated report, the most information you're usually given would be the meaning of the Moon in Aquarius in the 11th House.

This is obviously more detailed and helpful than just an explanation for Moon in Aquarius! However, there is a discipline within Astrology that gets even more specific, and that is the realm of the 360 symbols. These ancient symbols are most commonly known as the Sabian symbols, but there are other symbolic systems that exist. Most Astrologers shy away from the 360 degree symbols, feeling that it only further complicates Astrology, or, that the Sabian symbols have been accurate at times, but largely hit-and-miss.

WOW!!!

Of the 4-5 books on individual degree interpretation I've seen these last 35-yrs, this one is head, shoulders & torso above the rest.

I could see the points being made with Dane Rudhyar's poetic imagery in his fabulous "Astrological Mandala" these last 31-years since that gem was first published.

I've had the pleasure of meeting both Dane Rudhyar and Martin Goldsmith. Martin is most definitely more understandable.

I rectified my wife's natal chart and she acknowledged that Martin's assessment of her rectified Ascendant degree was on target.

Martin's delineations in Zodiac by Degree is to the awesome pinpoint. I was amazed by his accurate details.

Goldsmith's only psychological astrology rivals are Jefferson Anderson (Sun Signs/Moon Signs), Garth Allen (Taking the Kid Gloves Off Astrology), and the 2 Jungian babes: Liz Greene (Britain) & Karen Hamaker-Zondag (Netherlands).

(I was born in San Diego, just blocks away from where Alan Leo and his psychic collaborated on his Sabian Symbols text in the 1930s.)

This book is truly excellent, which is why I was delighted to write the Foreword for it! But 100% of the credit for writing the book itself goes to the brilliant and talented Mr Martin Goldsmith. I'd love to claim some of the glory, but alas the Lords of Literature would send me straight to Hell.

Finally, the "Sabian symbols" have been masterfully reinterpreted with updated references and succinct descriptive phrases. You can use this book to do readings with the layouts Dane Rudhyar suggests in his book An Astrological Mandala.Write the 12 zodiac signs and the numbers 1 - 30 on index cards and put them in two piles face down. Draw a card from each pile to get a sign and the degree to look up.Students, astrologers, and people interested in divination tools have a gold mine to explore. Thank you Martin!
