Aspects are an essential piece of the astrological puzzle when it comes to interpreting and using the information that astrology can give us. It is not enough to know the placement of the planets on the horoscope. It is the "relationships" between the stars and planets that let us grasp the destiny of the individual. Aspects describe the drama of our lives--the complex configurations that influence what will happen to us over time.
Sue Tompkins, a fellow of the Faculty of Astrological Studies in London, shows how to interpret aspects when doing daily astrological readings. She uses the lives of real people to plot the aspects and offers examples of every possible planetary combination. Detailing the influence of oppositions, trines and elemental trines, and cardinal, mutable, and fixed crosses, Tompkins shows how aspects provide the energy in the chart that transforms the horoscope into something symbolizing an alive and vital human being. With "Aspects in Astrology," Tompkins provides both the novice and the experienced astrologer the evidence and concrete methods needed to grasp the vast knowledge offered to us by our horoscope.

Spica Award: International Book of the Year, 2001. The astrology that is ubiquitous today is quite different from astrology as practised throughout almost all of its long history. The dilute and distorted version with which we are so familiar is not the study that has fascinated so many of the finest minds in our culture with its intellectual depth and practical precision. John Frawley provides a searching - and often hilarious - critique of modern astrology, and a detailed introduction to all the main branches of the traditional craft. Accessible to those with no prior knowledge of the subject, yet sufficiently through to serve as a vade mecum for the student or practitioner.
Vedic astrology arises out of ancient cosmology and is intimately linked to spiritual practices. This comprehensive guide demystifies many of the ancient techniques, introducing the deeper spirituality of the tradition to the West.

Lorraine Miller weaves a multi-coloured tapestry of her quest to true self, an inward and outward journey both heartbreaking and inspiring with startling revelations and quantum-consciousness experiences. Part One recounts childhood tragedies and unexplained past-life memories while growing up on Long Island, New York. A past-life encounter while travelling in Greece continues the process of accepting new realities. Moving across country to Arizona, a near-death accident shortly after her move and later the near-loss of her only child followed by his miraculous recovery leads to greater awareness of higher spiritual forces. Part Two tells of her quest for self-empowerment and healing through metaphysical studies and alternative therapies as she breaks away from the past and an unhappy marriage. Her life-long affinity with the animal kingdom through insightful stories shows how animals play an important role in our evolution and how we help them to evolve as well. Annotated with insights from astrology by renowned astrologer, Philip Comi, he gives validation to the energies of life events as she experienced them. Lorraine Miller has over twenty-five years of study of religion, metaphysics and healing methodologies. She was licensed by the State of Arizona as a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist in 1992.
This is the revised edition of one of the most important astrological books of our time. It not only reshapes the view of astrology that astrologers might have; it challenges the entire notion of what constitutes knowing and knowledge in our civilisation. It shows that astrology is not only important in and of itself, but also for what it reveals about the nature of truth and our experience in general. (Robert Hand).

Fons Vitae is dedicated to preserving in print for future generations the extraordinarily important work of Titus Burckhardt, who devoted his life to the exposition of Universal Truth, that wisdom "uncreate" in the realm of metaphysics, cosmology, and sacred art. In addition to Burckhardt's Alchemy: Science of the Cosmos, Letters of a Sufi Master, and Moorish Culture in Spain, Fons Vitae is honored to add to the series Sacred Art, East and West, Mystical Astrology according to lbn 'Arabi, and Mirror of the Intellect.
An eminent Swiss metaphysician and scholar of oriental languages, Titus Burckhardt (1908-1984) devoted his life to the timeless and universal wisdom present in Sufism, Vedanta, Taoism, Platonism, and the other great esoteric and sapiential traditions. Though an art historian like his great uncle, the renowned Jacob Burckhardt, his main interest was the spiritual use and meaning to be found in Eastern and Western art and architecture, and the expression of the sacred in the lives of saints.
A unique work, providing the underlying spiritual principles (from the point of view of one of the greatest Sufi masters who ever lived) lacking in most modern books of astrology. It will complement and deepen anyone's personal library or collection of works on astrology.

In western astrology we have grown accustomed to perceiving the Sun's path as circular: the years revolve and the days and months return again, the 360 degrees of the zodiac go round in a ring. But the Sun has an up and down path too. It climbs steps of declination from each equinox to solstice and descends again from solstice to equinox. It marks off time in a different way which gives an extraordinary view, and adds an extra breadth to the meaning and movement of the heavenly bodies. This comprehensive work not only covers the technique of declination, but it is full of the fascinating myths and traditions which form the cornerstone of our culture - it will therefore be of great interest to anyone who follows the natural rhythm of the solar and lunar festivals in the course of their everyday lives.
One of the fundamental concepts of biodynamic agriculture is how the sun, moon and planets affect plants. Ernst Michael Kranich's book describes the growth patterns, leaf placements and flower forms of different plant families and how they are clearly connected to the rhythmic activity of specific planets. The book contains illustrations which demonstrate the connection between the orbital paths of planets and the shapes found in particular plants.
In recent years astrology has seen a resurgence of growth and change that is transforming this ancient subject into an exciting, profound and entirely contemporary discipline.

Here, in one remarkable volume, master astrologer Peter Malsin brings uniquely clear vision to these two subjects as he provides the reader with new tools for transformation, understanding and growth.
