More importantly this is a book to be read with a sound background in astrology. So my 4 stars review is due to my ignorance of the subject more than the book in its integrity.
It is small and concentrated, making reference to other medical astrologers throughout history and the techniques used. There is a lot of detail but alas, these details will only be savoured when my astrology studies will have tremendously improved.
The author describes the main function of medical astrology as the identification of the underlying astro-dynamic patterns that link mind and body, and the tackling of the inherent issues of which the outer symptoms are a physical manifestation.
There is a fascinating section on Decumbiture Charts, a traditional method of diagnosis & therapy based on the time a person takes to their bed with an illness. Also, the book contains much practical guidance on therapy sessions using medical astrology. There is no attempt to replace the medical team but rather to complement them. The author describes how the process works - changing the relationship between ourselves and our more difficult features through awareness and what she describes as an "upgrading" - transforming these into new more positive ways of expression that bring healing.
The astrological correspondences of illnesses and remedies including herbs, plus a full bibliography of further reading ensure that this will be a much used reference book.
