Format: Paperback
The strength of this book is the deep, rich context surrounding each topic. But for many, that would be its weakness.
I use it as a reference book - when I'm stumped by a chart, I just page through this book looking for new associations to break the logjam in my mind. But in truth, this is a book to read cover-to-cover, pasting in post-it-notes to mark the bits and pieces of unrelated but illuminating wisdom tossed into various discussions.
For example, in one very illuminating section of this book, Hickey discusses each of the signs as it manifests as the Ascendant - then under each sign as the Ascendant, she discusses each of the signs that would be on the other House Cusps if there are no interceptions, or if you use equal-house methods.
She shows you how the rising sign synthesizes with the signs on each of the cusps - to create some of the characteristics of people with that sign rising, and to color the house involved. This explains WHY a particular ascendant tends to produce people who behave a particular way.
The book is worth its price for that section alone -- if you're willing to just sit for a couple of hours and read all the rising signs, one section after the other. The faster you read it, the more sense it makes. The section is laid out very systematically, and that system reveals vistas of astrological truths in and of itself.
However, at random throughout the section, a few sentences, "throw away dialog," and offhand allusions are tossed into other topics to point you to bits of knowledge about how astrology works and what it's actually for. These bits are not taken up anywhere else in the book, not assembled, not set into a larger context, and not indexed. They just leap out at you as if outlined in soul-fire.

Having gotton the Astrology bug a couple of years ago, I have read a number of astrology books and perused many more.
Isabel Hickey's book serves as the astrolgoy "bible" for me. It's stand-out quality is how well it takes one through the fundamentals of astrology while at the same time revealing deep and spritually profound truths underlying "the cosmic science."
It is really a wonderful book.
I use it so much that my copy is literally taped together at this point to keep it from falling apart. I don't want to use a new copy because I have come to rely on the many notes, annotations and underlining of key passages I've written in the text. I have hundreds of books in my home and can say that for no volume except "Astrology, A Cosmic Science."
I would recommend anyone - the beginner, the advanced, and the just plain curious - to buy this book.

I attended Isabel Hickey's classes at B.U. in the early seventies. This started my astrological journey which continues after 30 years. My first copy of the book fell apart I used it so much. I had to copy all my notes into a brand new book. Hickey's book is not an astrological "cook book". It blends her spiritual and psychological way of looking at a chart. It works for a beginner and for an advanced student. Thirty years (and many books) later, it is still my favorite text. Isabel was a great mentor and healer. Her spirit lives on through this book.

A deep, thorough astrology text. An interesting tool for budding astrologers as well as anyone interested in human psychology. Some passsages are so beautifully worded as to deserve the term 'poetic' and there are also good poems! (Especially "Saturn"). This differs from some astrology guides in that it doesn't gloss over the personal lackings that particular planetary positions may show in individuals. For instance for 'Venus in Scorpio' it says 'Everything about the love nature needs regeneration and reorientation' and for Saturn in Cancer: 'An ambitious and shrewd person to whom material things are very important.' Perhaps a bit brutal and offensive or do we need these home truths?

When I lived in Boston I would go to hear Isabel Hickey at Boston University; her lectures were such a joy. There are so few great philosophers and metaphysicians today who give themselves in this way. I recommend this particular astrology book to all my students at Santa Fe Community College, where I teach the psychic crafts, and to my psychic and astrological clients. Hickey is almost always right-on with her "psychological astrology" readings. Everyone who is interested in astrology should own this book.
