Medical astrology is a fascinating subject, yet undoubtedly a rather challenging one. In this work however, the author attempts to ease the path towards greater understanding of traditional astrological principles regarding health, as well as introducing some new experiential ideas. These have been developed through her long pratice in this field. What can sometimes be helpful in studying a chart is to understand the psychological underlay to medical conditions inherent in the cosmic pattern. The many charts included in this work from the author's own casebook as well as the charts of some public figures both current and historical, suggest guidelines for interpretation. This book is recommended for anyone who is interested in exploring medical astrology in greater depth, and perhaps including some aspects of it in their own astrological work.

A modern integral astrology, which is found by the author, a contemporary Czech astrologer Ján Kaleta. Aquarian Astrology works with the basic structure of human being, which is defined by the esotericists, and proven by the experience of many researchers of human consciousness. Aquarian Astrology expresses the searching so called 'intention of soul' which is related to the present incarnation. Aquarian Astrology turns the attention of the adept on the long periodal influences of great cycles, especially the Preccesion Cycle of the Earth Axis. It is noticing the individual and transpersonal human experiences but also gives heed to the threshold of the sociocultural and individual experience with regard to rising number of people, who reach it. The author is confirming the empiric research by own astrological praxis through the last years. The work done is fruitful in understanding how the new astrology can work.

Would you like to learn how to read the astrology chart to gain a deeper understanding of your psychological strengths and weaknesses? Perhaps you are a therapist and wish to use this depth of knowledge to assist in developing strategies for emotional healing? This is not just another introduction to astrology book, rather, it takes you on a journey to show you how astrology and psychology complement each other. Retired psychologist and astrologer Noel Eastwood, draws upon a lifetime of study, practice and research to give you a readable and relatable book on the psychology of astrology for astrologers and the astrology of psychology for psychologists. This book is, firstly, a manual for the astrologer who wants to embark on their own journey of discovery but doesn’t know where to start. Secondly, it can be used by the experienced astrologer who wants to know more about the key astrological significators that are correlated with psychological disorders and how to apply it in their readings. Thirdly, it is for the psychotherapist who would like to better understand their client’s needs. One thing is certain this book will make you hungry to learn more of the psychological principles that form the foundations of modern astrology. Includes a discussion of synastry charts and inherited family traits; what aspects trigger people to seek counselling; how you might apply psychotherapy in your astrology practice; locating the astrological significators for conflict and complexes; ADD and ADHD; astrological significators for teenage depression and suicidal thoughts; psychological disorders as a spectrum of neurological symptoms; planetary aspects and shapes; the power of the elements and modes; clues to your spiritual path in your astrology chart; the powerful Saturn cycle; the amazing Air Fire phenomenon; using Jungian archetype meditations to support your personal mystic quest. "This book is Noel's latest and I love it. I admit I am a little jealous as he has accomplished with this book what I would have loved to have done. It is much harder than you would expect to write a basic book on astrology as the information available is vast. But here, Noel has managed to introduce astrologers to psychology and psychologists to astrology successfully. You will find it a simple book, after all it is an introduction, but at the same time incredibly complex. The fundamental knowledge is all there interwoven with mythology, mysticism, meditations, advice and practical applications. This book is an absolute ‘must have’ for every astrologer’s (and psychologist’s) library." Chris Turner, astrologer.

This is the only book to deal with classical Islamic cosmology as it was formulated by the Ikhwan al-S'afa al Biruni and Ibn Sina during the tenth and eleventh centuries. These figures influenced all the later centuries of Islamic history and in fact created the cosmological framework within which all later scientific activity in the Islamic world was carried out--the enduring image of the cosmos within which Muslims have lived during the past millennium. Nasr writes from within the Islamic tradition and demonstrates how, based on the teachings of the Quran and the Prophet, the figures treated in this work integrated elements drawn from various ancient schools of philosophy and the sciences. This book is unique in its treatment of classical Islamic cosmology as seen from within the Islamic world-view and provides a key for understanding of traditional Islamic thought. -- Back cover.

Gahl Sasson's second book, Cosmic Navigator, is like a GPS for the soul. It combines Astrology, the map of where and who we are, with Kabbalah the navigation system that tells us how to get to our goal and avoid those traffic patterns and areas of gridlock in our lives. This three part text is the first book of its kind. Not only is it the first book to use Astrology as a resource for self help, it also weds the wisdom of ancient Kabbalisitic truths with the powerful archetypes of the zodiac to help you improve and change your life. The first part of the book introduces the basic concepts of Kabbalah and Astrology and how they work together. The second part teaches you how to interpret your own astrological chart as the road map of your life. The third and final part of the book, which is based on Gahl's twelve week workshop, walks the reader through the twelve signs and teaches them how to use each one to bring balance and success into their lives. Is your love life in need of more passion? Turn to the chapter on Scorpio and learn how to invoke that sexual mysterious energy. Do you need to be more assertive at work? Turn to the chapter on Aries and discover your inner warrior. Unlike other astrology books that simply offer stereotypical profiles, Cosmic Navigator teaches us how to take control of our astrological destinies.
