Past Life Astrology: Use Your Birthchart to Understand Your Karma

Review Judy Hall’s Past Life Astrology: Use Your Birthchart to Understand Your Karma

When I told several astrologers that my new book, Stars Behind the Tortured Soul Healing Past-Life Memories Through Astrology is about past life astrology and Holocaust reincarnation, they have all said “good, we need more books out there on past life astrology”. They are right, because there are not enough. I am glad to have added one to the small …

Book Reviews – Understanding Aspects: The Inconjunct and The Sextile By Alan Epstein

I am a student, and began a search for any information available regarding YOD configurations for a research project. I found only limited information and it would seem to me that the Yod has not warranted in-depth study, perhaps because it is a nebulous figure in itself or because it is considered a minor aspect. This was very frustrating as …

Review The Next Step Complete Horoscope Interpretation by Maritha Pottenger

For many astrology students and budding professionals, the hardest step is moving from “bits and pieces” astrology to making sense of the whole chart. Although “cookbooks” in the field are a great place to begin (breaking down each interpretation as planet in sign, or planet in house, or planet in aspect), at some point, we all have to learn to …

Review The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Astrology

Despite the unfortunate title, a knock-off of the “Dummy” genre, The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Astrology is actually a pretty good over-all “beginner’s guide” to astrology. Written in straightforward language, and a sometimes humorous, tongue-in-cheek style, the guide covers all the basics from house and planetary placements to aspects and relationship comparisons. Some purists may not like the fact that …

Review The Book of Rulerships – Keywords From Classical Astrology by J. Lee Lehman

She willingly waded through old manuscripts to bring us a comprehensive list of astrological rulerships. It is organized into three sections: Planetary Rulerships, Sign Rulership and …
