This book covers all the basics of astrology in a clear and readable manner. It is a perfect primer to more advanced study of astrology and this book should be a part of every aspiring astrologer's bookshelf. It was written decades ago, but it is still highly relevant pertaining to a perfect understanding of the essentials of astrological knowledge and practice. I consider The Modern Text-Book of Astrology by Margaret Hone to rank with the best of astrology books written anytime and anywhere! If you want to learn all you can to become proficient in astrology, this book is an excellent starting point in your quest.
Essentially astrology is a complex divination system utilizing knowledge of the Zodiac signs, planetary correspondences and the 12 houses of the Zodiac. The Hermetic Maxim "As Above, So Below" exemplifies the approach and interpretation of astrological correspondences and symbol systems.
Very good book. I only gave it 4 stars because it does not include any information about the Saturn return or saturn conjunct saturn. The newer paperback version may include it but not the older hardback cover that I received.
So far so good. I love astrology books because they are no nonsense. It's not a fluffy, new age tome and it's not heavy on Theosophy. It is exactly what the cover says it is--a textbook. Mind you there are certainly newer books which cover more up to date Astro data. However this one is good for people who want a broad perspective and an in depth education on an ancient art form.
