Format: Paperback
A weird book but really quite incredibly on the money. It has profoundly influenced half a century of astrologers of all types and cannot be ignored. The tone (from WW II Germany) can be very dark, but the pithy summaries for each midpoint combination are uncanny. Ebertin was originally a Hamburg School "Uranian" and pupil of Witte; he branched off his own school, called "Cosmobiology," which is another Uranian system. As with Witte, dials and midpoints usurp the place of house delineation, which he ignores--but the book is nevertheless in the library of almost every professional astrologer, even those who have no interest or background in Uranian methods at all.

Even if you don't use midpoints in your charts, the information in this classic book is invaluable.

Ebertin gives psychological correspondances (pos & neg), as well as the sociological & biological correspondances for all pairs of planets as well as each planet with Asc, Mc, & North Node. Each planetary position, plus Asc/Mc/NN placements are given by sign and house.

'Probable manifestations' are listed for each combo, & you will find some basic info for every planet--also the psychological, sociological, & biological correspondances for them (which are useful for medical questions, too. Ex: Uranus = pituitary gland, Neptune = pineal gland...that sort of thing).

Much knowledge in a small package--definitely a gem!

If you only ever had one astrology book, this would be the one to choose. Ebertin's book is concise, exact, precise... exactly what you would expect from a German astrologer. He teaches the most sophisticated astrology in a very simple and direct manner. I have my students begin with this book even though many even professional astrologers think that midpoint techniques are very, very advanced. To me, they are the backbone of the chart and from them the chart makes perfect sense. Try it; you'll like it. Personality factors that were not clear before will become perfectly clear. Timing is exact with midpoints. Ebertin's astrology *works*!!! Elegant, lovely, I can't say enough about Ebertin and this book.

Long before the highly popular seriers of crime dramas with the same initials, C.S.I. has been one of the most important astrological references of all times - and continues to be. For content, there are few astrological references I would ever recommend more.

And I'm appreciative that AFA saw fit, many year ago, to keep it in print.

What saddens me - and actually makes it my first reflex NOT to pull this book off the shelf - is that, when they retypeset it, they totally screwed up the original page layout structure that contributed to this being an exceptional reference. The original layout had two facing pages for each combination - one on the left that had the basics, and one on the right that had the three-planet combinations. AFA, in typesetting it anew, ignored this. With a change in typography, the pages run longer, and no effort was made to keep matching pages to face each other. All the information is there - but the elegance of design and overall usability is much reduced. I suspect that the difference will drive more users just to employ it as a "quick lookup" reference, rather than the extraordinary tool for "undertanding from root principle" that it was (successfully) first created to be.

Sorry... I not only read and reference books, I design them. So my ranking is divided: Get this book if you don't have a copy. But the design and implementation genuinely makes me sad.

_The Combination of Stellar Influences_ by Reinhold Ebertin is the one book no astrologer can be without. It is the basic textbook on cosmobiology, written by the developer of the practice. The text consists mainly of a list of all possible planetary pictures (midpoint of two points plus aspecting point) using the standard planets, plus AS, MC, and DR (north node/dragon's head), and their meanings in mundane and genethliacal charts.

When you have a lot of conflicting info from a "jumbled" chart or a dearth of data in a sparse chart, midpoints can often point the way out, and CoSI by R. Ebertin can be indispensible. I had this book stolen about 20 years ago and need to get a new copy. There may be more modern midpoint definitions out there, but I got along fine with this one amazing Cosmobiology book.

Dear Foretellers,

I find this book very useful to those who are interested in advanced tools and techniques. It has been giving me lot of light and clarity, always leads closer to the truth. Reinhold Ebertin has simplified `Cosmobiology' so well that anyone who has little more patience and strong love for Astrology would understand and use this book intelligently.

I feel it is matter of pride to have this book in library. If you have this book handy, you need nothing more!

Regards,

Bhavesh N. Pattni

I have an old copy, older than I am, that I managed to find in a used book store for about 5 bucks. But I would pay full price for this book for sure! All astrologers should have this, it is like the bible of cookbooks with an emphasis on midpoints.
