What Robert Pelletier does in Planets in Houses has never been done before in the history of astrology. He discusses the meaning of each planet in each house as derived by counting from each of the other eleven houses, and he discusses the meaning of each house position in relation to the other houses with which it forms trines, sextiles, squares and oppositions, inconjuncts and semi-sextiles. In each chapter, wheel symbols graphically show the seventeen different house relationships delineated for each planet. Finally, Pelletier delineates the Sun-Moon polarities in terms of the wheel of houses: for each house position of the Sun, he interprets each of the twelve possible related house positions of the Moon. Each chapter presents the traditional meaning of the house and explains how the derivative house system applies to it.
This is part two of the fourth volume of Gargatholil's 4-volume work, Depth Astrology: An Astrological Handbook--the first comprehensive handbook interpreting the astrological symbol set in the tradition of such pioneers as Dane Rudhyar, Liz Greene and Stephen Arroyo. In this volume, the meaning of each of the six major astrological aspects for each possible planetary aspect is interpreted using the psycho-transformative depth astrology approach. "Planets" include the 10 traditional astrological planets, the Ascendant and Midheaven, the Moon's Nodes and the Part of Fortune. Part two contains aspects for Mars through the Part of Fortune. Possible planetary aspects are limited to binary aspects and to those aspects occurring in the twentieth century and in the twenty-first century till 2013. Each interpretation contains: an explanation of the interaction between the two aspecting planets, the essential meaning and potential manifestations of each planetary aspect (conjunction, sextile, square, trine, opposition and, in most cases, quincunx), the transcendent potential of the planetary placement, and manifestations of the planetary placement from a place of insecurity. Planetary combinations are arranged factorially, so that planetary aspects are not repeated once interpreted. Depth Astrology - Planets in Aspect is a valuable tool for the novice just entering the field of depth astrology, for the astrological professional desiring a look-up of planetary interpretations that provide guidance to the unfolding potentialities of planetary placements, or for anyone seeking to use the astrological symbol-set as a tool for self-discovery and growth. Novices are encouraged to purchase Volume 1 - Introduction. Depth Astrology: An Astrological Handbook was reviewed in The Mountain Astrologer, Dec/Jan 2018 issue.
Birhat Jatak from time immemorial has been considered as the standard textbook on Astrology. The English translation of Varahamihira`s Brihat Jataka is a monumental work in completing which the difficulties in translating a beautiful, technical and suggestive work in sanskrit had to surmounted by hard labour, profound research and want of adequate expressions. It is not mere a translation work; the ripe experience of Mr. Rao for over 60 years in the field of Astrology and his sound judgment on doubtful points have substantiated its value further.
How to Read Cosmodynes fills an important need in the astrological field. Many know of this method of measuring the relative power of the planets, signs and houses, but few know how to use it in their daily astrological practice. Yet it can be the key to seemingly inexplicable factors in an individual horoscope. Cosmodyne patterns indicate how delays, obstacles and confusion can be avoided. They point to where the energy-expenditure should be directed, how it should be channeled, and the associations which will enhance the demonstration of success. Once you experiment with the use of cosmodynes, you will never give them up. Probably you'll wonder how you managed to do without them for so long.
