"In this 21st century where relationships are increasing in importance, volume, and complexity, Aspects of Astrology is especially meaningful and timely. This book is a wonderfully insightful and erudite map for managing our relations with others, and for understanding the many aspects within our own innerself." (James Wanless, Ph.D., author of Voyager Tarot)

Most astrology books are either of the "cookbook" variety without information on synthesis or of the type that goes in-depth, but without instruction on application and synthesis. This book takes a unique approach in effectively combining the two. This book is not only great for beginning and intermediate students, but can also be useful for the professional.
It's too bad this author doesn't have any other titles to her name. I would buy everything else she wrote. She is a gifted writer, and through this book, a gifted teacher. At the very least, I hope she puts out a second edition of this book that includes Chiron.
1) Almost all of the book, more than 2/3 I would say, is a cookbook. Normally, I don't have a big problem with cookbooks. In this case, however, I take major issue. The cookbook gives about 3-pages worth on the connections between each of the planets. For example, 3-pages will be dedicated to sun/Saturn connections, 3-pages for sun/Jupiter connections, etc, until all combinations of all planets have been accounted for. The problem is that it doesn't differentiate between the ASPECTS that these planets have. There is only ONE description of sun/Saturn connections even though there are about 7-different aspects, or types of "relationship" that the sun and Saturn could have. In other words, it would have students interpret a sun/Saturn trine the same way as a sun/Saturn opposition or square. One description fits all in this book, but not so in real life.
2) Only 21 pages of the book actually go into detail describing the meanings of each aspect. And two of those descriptions are questionable. Here are the two that I take issue with and the reasons why:
At the beginning of this description, the author says, "Signs in quincunx [...] are coming from such completely different places and heading in such different directions that they don't even see each other, rather like two planes on unrelated flight-paths." This is in agreement with all respectable accounts of this aspect that I've run across. Other sources have demonstrated that this is not an aspect between planets that are working with or against each other. Its just that when one planet is working, the other is taking a break.Read more ›

I needed the symbols for a Sesquiquadrate and Quincunx which the book Aspects in Astrology doesn't have. The book doesn't have any symbols for the aspects. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Patricia Browne-Albukrek
