“Shamanic Egyptian Astrology is a new creative way of looking at and applying astrology. It is unique in that it brings together Egyptian and Western astrology. What I especially like is that at the end of each chapter there are rituals and meditations that anyone can do. It is nice to have a book with practical applications. I recommend this book to all spiritual seekers.” (John DeSalvo, Ph.D., director of the Great Pyramid of Giza Research Association and author of The Lo)
“I am in awe of Linda and Ruby’s depth of knowledge of ancient Egyptian archetypes and mythology. They have collaborated to produce a long overdue weaving of East and West sacred astrology in a language easily understood by the neophyte and the advanced student. Their noble purpose to help us develop in spiritual consciousness via Egyptian astrology is definitely achieved.” (Brenda Schaeffer, author of Is It Love or Is It Addiction?)
“This fascinating book helps us form the anatomy of our human psyches by blending the Egyptian gods and archetypal symbols of Greek and Roman astrology, of which we are all a part.” (Jacquelyn Small, author of Awakening in Time and The Sacred Purpose of Being Human)
“Ruby and Star Wolf have brought forth a remarkable synthesis of Shamanic wisdom with astrology and Egyptian alchemy. This insightful information-filled book is a valuable resource for everyone interested in deep exploration and transformation.” (Lisa Rafel, sound healing educator, spiritual teacher, author, and composer of Safe in the Arms of L)
“Shamanic Egyptian Astrology is a brilliantly crafted astrological tool for deepening one’s self-knowledge. Consciously working with this system promises to yield layer upon layer of insights regarding the true nature of one’s life and spiritual blueprint.” (Silvia J. Pancaro, creator of Moon-Coaching; author of MoonCoach and Lunar Pries-Ess)
“Combining Ruby Falconer’s vast astrological knowledge with Star Wolf ’s intuitive connection with the pantheon of ancient Egypt breathes alchemical magic into traditional astrology. These authors have looked into the distant past and uncovered messages to help guide humanity now, as we enter the Aquarian Age.” (Karen Craft, author of The Cosmic Purr: Inspiration for Animal Lovers)
"The goal of Shamanic Egyptian Astrology is to re-language astrology, but in essence, it's another creative message about the age that is upon us." (Dell Horoscope magazine, Sept 2010)
". . . if you're looking for a comprehensive guide on seeking aid from Egyptian gods, all while understanding how the elements of your sign can be used to make you a more spiritual being, then Shamanic Egyptian Astrology is a must-have for your personal library. . . . Both a guide for the advanced student and beginner, Wolf and Falconer's teachings are grossly underrated and deserve a standing ovation just for its intensive research alone." (Stephanie Nolasco, Feminist Review, July 2010)

Shamanic Egyptian Astrology integrates the Egyptian pantheon, the ancient language of astrology, and shamanic practices to promote a new way to interpret and work with natal charts. Revealing the cross-cultural mythology and astrological significance of the individual Egyptian gods and goddesses, the authors link each of the 12 zodiac signs and 11 celestial bodies of Western astrology with its Egyptian ancestor, introducing new significance to their positions and interactions in a horoscope. For example, Leo is linked with Anubis and Taurus with Hathor. Venus is associated with the goddess Isis and Jupiter with Horus.
Each chapter includes sacred invocations and shamanic rituals to invite the wisdom of each Egyptian deity into your life--such as calling on Sekhmet for action or Thoth for clarity. With sample interpretations of the charts of Barack Obama and Gloria Steinem, this book provides a practical framework for accessing the wisdom of ancient Egypt and offers astrological and shamanic tools for spiritual guidance and the coming shift in planetary consciousness.
LINDA STAR WOLF, a shamanic guide who has led workshops since 1984, is the founder of Venus Rising Institute for Shamanic Healing Arts. The author of Shamanic Breathwork and coauthor of Shamanic Mysteries of Egypt and The Anubis Oracle, she lives in North Carolina. A professional astrologer since 1977, RUBY FALCONER is the staff astrologer, lead trainer, business manager, and a workshop facilitator for Venus Rising. She lives in North Carolina.

First, as perhaps the title should imply, a good portion of the material was "channeled" by the authors, and thus is not verifiable by others sources. This includes all of the correspondences they draw between their new Egyptian Astrology and traditional astrology, as well as some of their versions of the Egyptian myths.
Second, the authors sprinkled just enough scientific terminology into the book to make it clear they do not know much about Biology or Psychology. They use the Freudian term "ego" in a way that could more easily be identified with either the Freudian "id" or the Jungian "self" than with the ego.
Lastly, the correspondences they draw seem rather forced at time. For example, they identify Set with Mars, rather than Saturn as most Egypto-Pagans, including myself, would do. Set's identification with the barren desert, which the Egyptians in term identified with death, makes him an appropriate correspondent for Saturn. I presume this, and the other weak correspondences were made because of the inherent difficult in trying to completely overlay one set of mythos over another.
The book was a valiant effort to create a coherent system of Egyptian Astrology, but it has some weaknesses. I would like to see a book written on the indigenous Egyptian Astrological system developed in pre-Ptolemaic Egypt. Furthermore, it is arguable that the "traditional" astrology system is of Egyptian origin, since it was refined to an art-form in Ptolemaic Egypt.
