Why is it that some children sail through school with no problem at all, while others find it a difficult or unhappy experience? And why do some children develop behavioural problems while others don't? Cornelia Hansen believes that each child is unique and needs special management in order to thrive. While working on a Master's Degree in Child Development, Cornelia was introduced to a longitudinal study done in the Fifties on temperament in children. At the time, she was also studying astrology and the idea came to her that she might be able to connect the child development study to astrology. After all, hadn't the concept of temperament been with us from ancient times? Isn't it still part of analyzing someone's natal chart? The modern concept of temperament as being the cause of individual differences which appear at birth and continue over time has been widely accepted in the field of child development and appears in every child development textbook. In this pioneering study of temperament in children and young people, Cornelia examines copious case histories from her experience as a marriage, family and child therapist; with the welfare of the child firmly at the heart of the birth chart, she searches for ways to help parents understand their offspring better - and thus achieve a good outcome for everyone. Ideal for anyone working with children in the classroom, or in any capacity, this book will help parents, carers and teachers to discern the individual needs of a child that will enable them to flourish in the classroom and beyond.

The technique known today as primary directions is one of the most ancient and renowned methods of astrological forecasting, and also one of the most powerful. From classical antiquity throughout the Middle Ages and Renaissance, and even into the twentieth century, all the great names of western astrology have worked with primary directions. It was the predictive technique of Dorotheus and Ptolemy, of Masha'allah and Abu Ma'shar, of Regiomontanus and Placidus, of Morin de Villefranche and William Lilly. To understand the Old Masters of astrology, we must understand primary directions. Students of traditional astrology have often been deterred by overly mathematical presentations from approaching the important subject of directions. This comprehensive study explains the principles of primary directions in an accessible form, illustrating them by practical examples. It also draws on many original source texts to outline the historical origins and development of the technique, and shows how it has been reinterpreted and occasionally misunderstood. A full glossary and appendices with software reviews as well as formulae for manual calculations complement the text. The craft of the Old Masters can still be learnt.
The personal panchanga is the secret key in vedic astrology to understanding the deeper levels of your chart, and this book will help decode it. Panchanga is the Indian Almanac used from ancient times to tabulate the effect of many diverse cosmic factors that influence the quality of the day. Panch means five, and Anga means limbs, so panchanga literally means five limbs - or the five sources of energy through which the luminaries have to pass in order to reach consciousness. The panchanga on the day of the birth effects our physical energy, mental makeup, emotional connections, practical desires and our sense of security. It additionally tells of the gunas, Ayurvedic doshas, prakriti, chakras, the five great elements, dysfunctional or burnt signs, the good luck points, the lucky and unlucky planets, how to choose the right name, the best career options, relationship compatibility and much more. After reading this book, you may wonder how you ever analysed the natal chart without it.
This book is a translation of the original, in Dutch, brought about by the overwhelming demand of his English speaking students. Books have been written about herbs with a little astrology added, about outer planets with a little naturopathy added, and about the astrological symbolism of body parts and functions. But none of these books is really about classical medical astrology: practical diagnosis and treatment on the basis of charts. Medical astrology has always been an integral unity of astrological diagnosis and treatment based on the planetary positions. This integral and seamless unity is the central theme in this book, which picks up the thread of the great tradition which ended temporarily in seventeenth century England. It is now undergoing a revivial as modern astrologers rediscover the authenticity and value of the classical techniques.
The Planetary Hours are an ancient astrological system for selecting favorable times to act (and avoiding unfavorable times), by assigning planetary rulers to the twenty-four hours of the day. This book has easy-to-follow instructions for finding your birthday and birth hour rulers, and clearly explains how these determine your personality and your luck. A chapter on electional astrology explains how to use the Planetary Hours to find lucky times to act (to ask for money; to ask someone on a date or to marry; to go on a journey; to begin a new business). The chapter on How to Cast Spells gives the low-down on how to make magical spells (and prayers) really work, using simple astrological techniques. The use of the Firdaria, an ancient astrological prediction system which indicates positive and negative periods during a lifetime, is illustrated with a detailed analysis of events in the life of Theodore Roosevelt. Complete Tables of Planetary Hours at the end of the book allow you to find favorable times to initiate activities for any day of the year, and for anywhere on earth from the Equator to 58 North and South latitudes. Ideal for any level of astrologer.

Back due to popular demand! In this book, Richard Idemon teaches us how to look at the natal chart to gain rich, new insight into our deepest nature - the hidden agendas, childhood patterns and the belief systems that invariably shape our lives and relationships. Combining the symbolism of astrology, mythology and Jungian psychology, he teaches us how to break free of the entrenched attitudes that limit and restrict us. Above all, Idemon provides new depth and dimension to the understanding of the most important aspect of our lives - how we reach out and interact with others. He tells us that the important people in our lives are like looking glasses - mirrors of our unfolding process toward a fuller consciousness. By looking into these mirrors we can transform ourselves and thus change the relationships which are so important to us.
What are astrological aspects and how do they show themselves in a horoscope? How do they relate to the zodiac as a whole and how important are they ? Most importantly, how can they best be put to use in understanding our individual needs and relationships? Sue Tompkins, former Director of Schools for the prestigious Faculty of Astrological Studies, explains the significance and practical use of astrological aspects, which go much deeper into revealing the layers of a person's character than do most summaries offered by basic descriptions of star signs. Included is a section offering interpretations for every planetary combination. Also featured are examples drawn from the lives of many well-known people, along with charts and diagrams. Not simply another book on astrology, this is informative and useful guide will appeal equally to the experienced astrologer and to the beginner who wishes to know more.
Astrology has been open to criticism through a large part of its long history. In this groundbreaking book Bernadette Brady gives new insights in the intensity of these criticisms by placing astrology into its initial setting, its original world of ancient creation myths linked to the great creative void. Modern chaos theory has now rediscovered this void and Brady maps astrology to chaos theory to produce "chaotic astrology". The result is an insight into fate, freewill and the nature of astrology itself implying that it is neither a science nor a religion, and suggests instead that astrology is an instrument of chaos, a fertile and pragmatic tool for understanding the patterns of life. Original and insightful as ever, Brady navigates the reader through a breath-taking journey which can change forever the way one views the world.
Discover how to navigate the spiral energy patterns of the Universe for spiritual advancement and conscious evolution Modern science has finally confirmed an essential component of the Pleiadian teachings: Our Universe is not linear; it moves in spirals. Human evolution also unfolds in spirals, rather than the linear progression we call "progress." Sharing the cosmic wisdom teachings they have received from the Pleiadian group known as Laarkmaa, authors Pia Orleane and Cullen Baird Smith reveal a new system of Pleiadian-Earth energy astrology centered on the spiraling and interconnected movement of Universal and Earth energies, rather than on time, and explain how this new wave of Pleiadian wisdom can support human evolution. The authors identify two major spiral patterns that influence us: the 13 spirals of Universal energy that reflect cosmic laws and cosmic truth and the 20 spirals of Earth energy that reflect how humans experience themselves, each other, and their environment. They explain the dominant energy of each of the 13 Universal energy spirals and how they cycle in 13-day periods. Providing a map to transcend all systems that no longer serve us, freeing us to become the enlightened cosmic beings we truly are, the authors show how, with the wisdom of the Pleiadian-Earth energy system, we can each discover our specific gifts, work through the challenges of our own shadows, and individually and collectively evolve into a higher vibrational species.
