Library Journal Review

If you purchase only one book on astrology this year, make it this one. Astrologer Miller and Brown, coauthor with Miller of Shaken Not Stirred: A Celebration of the Martini, give the history of the six major astrological systems indicated in the subtitle, which have never before been compared in book form. The authors provide a broad overview of how these systems have developed and how results are derived from them, discussing nuances such as exoteric vs. esoteric astrology and the differences between the topical and sidereal zodiacs. Detailed chart-making instructions are included, with brief interpretive devices. Instructions are complete enough for readers to construct their own charts, and examples help in navigating the mazes of tables and mathematical equations involved in chart-making. A glossary of the vocabulary involved with each system is included. Unequaled in comprehensiveness, this book is highly recommended.ÄMarija Sanderling, Rochester P.L., NH (c) Copyright 2010.

Excerpts

Excerpts

There is no question that the celestial bodies that make up our solar system affect life on Earth. Ocean tides are the result of the gravitational pull exerted by the Moon as it revolves around the Earth. The phenomena known as sunspots not only change the polarity of the Sun's magnetic field and affect the Earth's climate, but the resulting solar flares seem to have a profound effect on the Earth's magnetic field, causing periodic radio interference, computer crashes, and other technological mayhem. The planets themselves also generate magnetic radiation in varying degrees. Not surprisingly, the solar photon radiation that continuously showers the Earth seems to be altered when two planets' orbital paths cross each other at particular angles, creating magnetic storms. Humans are electrochemical beings. In fact, every muscle and organ in the human body functions because minute electrical impulses generated by both internal and external forces flow through the complex internal network that is the central nervous system. The brain transmits information to the rest of the body through minute electrical charges that not only control motion and speech, but stimulate emotion and behavior as well. Thus, humans are subtly and profoundly affected by any changes in the solar system's electromagnetic field. The effects of the ebb and flow of energy produced by celestial motion upon this intricate neural system have been observed, documented, argued, and refined by scientists, physicians, theologians, and astrologers over thousands of years. This--the cumulative body of their work--is astrology. Legitimate astrology is founded on logical observation and deductive reasoning, not superstition or magic. It is a body of knowledge (which, in its strictest sense, is science) that charts the positions of the planets at the exact time and place of a person's birth, and determines the overall effect of celestial electromagnetic forces on a given individual's personality and behavior throughout the course of his or her life, drawing on hundreds, even thousands, of years of cumulative research. The term astrology is derived from the Greek words astron and logos, which literally mean "stars" and "study." Originally, astrologers documented and named the celestial bodies that they perceived as moving through the sky, and charted the diurnal (daytime) and nocturnal (nighttime) movements of large "stars" like the planets Venus and Mercury. But it wasn't long before scientists and mathematicians in locations as diverse as Beijing, Bombay, Babylon, and Bogotá noticed striking correlations between celestial activity and human behavior. For example, ancient Greek and Roman physicians referred to intermittent bouts of insanity as "lunacy," accepting as fact the parity between erratic human behavior and the occurrence of the Full Moon or a lunar eclipse. Ancient Hindu believers associated an intoxicating herbal drink called soma with the Moon god Candra. Consumed by both gods and worshipers, soma   reputedly produced a mild form of dementia. Those who drank soma   felt invincible and supernatural, according to many passages in the Vedas. And Chinese tradition contains numerous legends about the Moon's effect on human beings. The most famous of these concerns the eighth-century a.d. poet Li Po, who invited the Moon and its inhabitant, the goddess Ch'ang-O, to have a drink with him. He was so intoxicated by the Moon's beauty--and by the liquor he was imbibing--that he drowned in a lake while attempting to capture the Moon itself. Even in modern times, major metropolitan police departments such as those of New York and Los Angeles add on extra staff to handle the perceived monthly increase in criminal, violent, and otherwise chaotic behavior that many people believe coincides with each Full Moon. It is not a young science. In fact, astrology gave birth to the more modern science of astronomy as astrologers were the first scientists to document the planets' motions with mathematical accuracy. The oldest continuous written records of astral observations and practice were discovered in India and China. Numerous astrological manuscripts found in royal Indian libraries date back to the Indo-Aryans, who settled in the Indus River valley around 1500 b.c. Similarly, documentation of celestial observations and methods of astrological delineation which were found in Chinese archives are over four thousand years old. Monarchs and military leaders, including the Macedonian emperor Alexander the Great and the Mongol emperor Genghis Khan, consulted astrologers prior to making strategic decisions. During the Middle Ages and into the Renaissance, Western European and Mediterranean physicians, clergy, and scholars applied astrological methods to their various professions, expanding their collective knowledge over the centuries by translating works imported from distant lands, including Arabia, India, and China. Even the great Mayan and Aztec civilizations in the New World developed their own unique forms of astrological calculation and interpretation. Today, interest in a variety of astrological practices is on a decided upswing. So why do modern-day, realistic world leaders, corporate CEOs, physicists, and physicians consult personal astrologers about critical situations before acting or reacting? Why do highly educated individuals around the world turn to such an ancient science, looking for guidance or for glimpses into destiny? Is it hope, fear, or an intuitive belief that astrology is logical and realistic that spurs even skeptical twentieth-century intellectuals to consult a horoscope at critical crossroads in life? As Kenneth Miller pointed out in a Life magazine article (July 1997): "It turns out astrology is experiencing its biggest boom in four hundred years. According to a recent poll, just 20 percent of Americans are flat-out nonbelievers; 48 percent say astrology is probably or definitely valid." The number of practicing professional astrologers in the United States alone has more than quintupled within the past two decades. Sun-sign horoscopes (timely predictions based strictly upon an individual's day of birth) cast by astrologers such as Sydney Omarr, Rob Brezsny, and the late Patrick Walker are published in numerous respectable magazines and newspapers. These general-advice columns are faithfully read by millions who often telephone the accompanying 900-number services for "more detailed forecasts." The remarkable resurgence of interest in astrology at the end of the second millennium and the beginning of the third is predicted in the stars. According to Western astrological tradition, in late 1995, Pluto left an eleven-year cycle positioned in the sign of Scorpio, a cycle that highlighted military conflicts, possible biological warfare, and improved methods for increasing longevity. It then entered Sagittarius, commencing a thirteen-year period that turns the spotlight on a revived interest in spiritual, esoteric, and religious subjects, coupled with a worldwide drive toward familiarization with diverse ethnic cultures and a diffusion of national and racial distinctions. Within the sphere of Chinese and Tibetan astrological traditions, the Year of the Rat (1996) gave rise to a twelve-year cycle dominated by an intellectual interest in philosophical subjects. But to comprehend and appreciate this new wealth of information, one needs to understand the basics: the history, methodology, intended purpose, and efficacy of the major astrological traditions, as well as their similarities and differences. Until now, this would have required the acquisition of numerous volumes, because the fundamentals of these six major Western and Eastern traditions have never before been compiled in one place, even though much can be gained from comparing those rich traditions while studying or practicing astrology. In this book you will find the cumulative results of our research into this science. Essential questions will be answered, such as these: When and where did astrology originate? Who were its champions and detractors? What do the various traditions have in common, and how are they dissimilar? How is a horoscope cast in the various traditions, and how is it interpreted? What can be gained by applying more than one tradition to an individual's astrological profile? Part One introduces six of the world's major astrological traditions. Chapter 1, "The Celestial River," briefly details the origins of the Chinese, Tibetan, Vedic (Hindu), Arabian, Judaic, and Western astrological traditions, which include Chaldean, Babylonian, Greek, Egyptian, and Roman. This chapter explains how each tradition played a significant role in the history of the world's religions and governments, and contributed to the development of other sciences such as medicine, mathematics, and astronomy. Chapter 2, "The Children of the Moon and the Children of the Sun," describes the various branches of astrology from natal (birth) charts and predictive astrology to medical and political astrology. It discusses the difference between exoteric astrology and esoteric astrology as well as the physical distinction between the tropical zodiac and the sidereal zodiac. This chapter also introduces a new method for categorizing these astrological traditions. Based on the level of importance placed on the Sun's versus the Moon's effect on human behavior and personality, we present our own unique divisions--the Sun school and the Moon school--along with the reasons why this new classification is useful to both astrological researchers and practitioners. Part Two explains the basic steps involved in calculating and constructing a horoscope in each of the six traditions. We present commonly used chart construction procedures and generic interpretations of the resulting planetary positions: data that each practitioner customizes for presentation after years of observation and synthesis. Beginning with one of the earliest forms of astrology, chapter 3 describes one of the many branches of Chinese astrology called Tzu P'ing, which concentrates on the relationship between an individual's life forces and surroundings as well as his or her destiny. The construction of a chronology based on decade-long "fate cycles" is also included, along with the two forms of daily prediction used in China: the sieu (lunar mansion) and the chien-ch'ü (daily indicator). Chapter 4 presents Tibetan astrology, which was adapted from the Chinese tradition. But, unlike its predecessor, this method concentrates solely on the quality and type of life forces that an individual possesses from birth and their relationship to a specific point in time. Chapter 5 describes the two types of natal horoscopes constructed and interpreted by Vedic astrologers, and also presents six additional charts that are often cast to enhance the astrological profile produced for an individual. One in particular, the vimsottari dasa, is a chronology that can foretell the general tone of events surrounding a person's life over periods as broad as years or as specific as hours. Chapter 6 presents the calculation and interpretation of thirty-seven Arabian Parts, which were used to fine-tune or verify the prognostications of Arabian natal profiles and bear a close resemblance to modern-day Western and Judaic horoscopes. Chapter 7 explains the Judaic horoscope, which differs subtly from the Western horoscope, and the interpretation of the Ascendant (rising sign) according to the Judaic tradition. Chapter 8 takes you through the process of casting and interpreting a Western natal horoscope. Part Three shows how the information in Part Two can be applied to the development of an individual personality profile. Chapter 9 demonstrates how the chronologies and personality profiles derived from the various astrological traditions are presented, using the late Diana, Princess of Wales, as the test subject. And chapter 10 suggests ways in which you can apply this vast body of knowledge to answer key questions about work, home, love, marriage, health, and many other essential facets of life. Because so many unique terms are used in astrology, we have included a glossary for quick reference. A selected bibliography is provided to direct you on your way if you wish to further your own independent study of this subject. One word of caution: Just as one physician seeks out another for a diagnosis of his or her own illness, and a good psychologist seeks professional counseling on someone else's couch, even the most experienced astrologer benefits from consulting another practitioner about his or her own horoscope. Therefore, if you are interested in uncovering your astrological profile or need astrological guidance concerning a specific question, you should consult a professional practitioner and use this book as a reference to help you understand what to expect from such a consultation. Anyone who tries to be his or her only astrologer cannot gain all that the science of astrology has to offer.
