This academically integrated text offers the first in-depth astrological/psychological guide to empower and transform one's life and perspective. All cross-disciplined and academic subjects that can be integrated into this philosophic structure, are referenced and explained. This text is complete with all basic astrological significators delineated with new and expanded insight, with a complete explanation of how we bring our early environment and beliefs into adulthood and create our reality and experiences. These dynamics are explored and explained psychologically, metaphysically and pragmatically.
This book blends many different philosophies and gives the message that using astrology can be a tool to self-understanding and transformation; that it is not a mysterious tool of divination but that it can be used to examine our existing beliefs, and that it is up to us what we do with that knowledge.The ideas in this book challenge the reader to look at the responsibility they have for their own lives, and begin to teach how to do this using astrology.
The individual interpretations of placements are basic. The author has delved to the core of the meanings of the archetypes from a psychological perspective. The results are dynamic, all-encompassing (yet specific to the placement) keys, with which to begin delineations. This is something that has been lacking in many other astrology books with more shallow definitions.
There are several example delineations of charts which take the reader through the process of using this information in a complete chart, showing how the insight from the previous chapters can be used to "read" a chart.
Definitely a work of text-book caliber, not a coffee-table book.

Many brilliant individuals have contributed to our understanding of ourselves and our Universe. Sigmund Freud led us to an awareness of the unconscious. Albert Einstein led us to recognition of the relativistic nature of the universe. Niels Bohr led us to the possibility (through Quantum Mechanics) that we participate in the actual physical creation of reality, and the noted psychologist Carl Jung lead us to the realization of the commonality of archetypal reference. Astrology is the interface that allows for the maximized incorporation and understanding of all of these truths.
Plato said "The purpose of living is to discover the purpose of living". Applying this philosophy requires the integration and incorporation of as many disciplines as possible. Life's paradox' and contradictions are resolvable through an expanded consciousness. No intelligent person can discount any subject simply because of a lack of knowledge of the subject. Definitions (conscious and unconscious) create beliefs, beliefs direct behavior, behavior determines reality experience. Astrology allows us to understand the definitions we hold, hence, the keys to our reality experience. If we create our own reality no tool is as valuable in terms of self-empowerment than the horoscope. The planets and constellations do not incline, impel, compel, or otherwise make or influence us to do anything, they are us, one level looking back at another, and reflect the decisions, beliefs and momentum of our consciousness as one thing (ALL-THAT-IS, or GOD) manifesting itself in all the different ways, times, and places, that it can--forever.
The horoscope reflects the personal (or collective as in the charts of nations) unconscious arrangement of collective consciousness archetypes. With an understanding of the psychology of the effect the early environment, an individual can translate these archetypes into meaningful life patterns and purposes. This manuscript and volumes to follow, weave these ideas and disciplines together into practical harmony. Current thought (referenced) in psychology, metaphysics, science, biology, logic, anthropology and astronomy make it suitable for college curriculum, a self-help guide for the novice, and a must for the ever-expanding role of the professional astrologer.
