This book on Astro*Carto*Graphy and Relocation not only exceeds the reach of natal astrology, it defines, articulates and enlarges the local view of an individual’s horoscope to a global view, thus expanding our local focus – natal – to an organic global relationship. The individual is not confined to his or her birthplace, but is a whole-world person. Erin Sullivan has brought global astrology into a new place, a highly entertaining and enlightening place.
Together, these two seminars present a new perspective on relationships within the family and amongst friends – those “nonromantic” bonds which are so often either overlooked or overloaded with too much emphasis on pathology. This volume offers refreshing and exciting new perspectives and new practical tools for the astrological student and practitioner.
Part One: The Composite Chart. There is little current astrological literature available on the composite chart. This seminar explores the profound concept of relationship as an independent entity with its own nature and destiny, and focuses in depth on the meaning of various composite placements.
Part Two: The Eternal Triangle. The painful experience of a love triangle is one which occurs in virtually all lives, although the “third point” of the triangle is not always a human one.
This volume is the long-awaited companion to Darby’s earlier CPA Press volume, Water and Fire, completing her dynamic and imaginative exploration of the four astrological elements.
The seminars included in this fascinating volume deal with the theme of astrology’s use as a tool of global prediction over the centuries especially as part of a religious vision of the “end of days”. Human beings have always been preoccupied with whether and when the world will end, now no less than in Babylonian and medieval times.
Bridging the apparent gap between psychological and predictive astrology is not easy, and many astrologers feel they must polarise and espouse one while rejecting the other.
The seminars in this innovative volume explore the psychological dynamics which accompany concrete events, focusing on the important psychological model of the complex as both a generator of individual behaviour and an archetypal image of individual fate. This book offers profound insights into the ways in which inner and outer reality coincide and reflect each other.
Many people are familiar with astrology only through Sun-sign columns in newspapers, but they have little understanding of what it really means to be born ‘under’ a particular zodiac sign. The astrological student may know that the Sun is the most important factor in the birth horoscope; but frequently used terms such as ‘self expression’ give little insight into this most profound and complex of astrological symbols.
The four seminars in this volume reveal the many facets of one of the most misunderstood of astrological symbols. In the present world climate, it is particularly important, perhaps even urgent, that we have a better grasp of this most instinctive and fundamental human urge.
Charles Harvey was one of the most influential and innovative figures of late 20th century astrology. In the seminars in this volume, the clarity of his thought and the depth and inclusiveness of his vision are expressed in a way which is accessible yet subtle and profound. These seminars explore not only the ways in which individuals influence, mediate, and are shaped by the groups and collectives to which they belong, professional and national, but also the ways in which nations evolve according to inherent astrological patterns which, rather than merely echoing history, actually create it.
Melanie Reinhart’s groundbreaking work, Chiron and the Healing Journey, opened the eyes of the astrological world to the importance of this recently discovered ‘planetoid’ in understanding both individual and collective experiences of suffering and the potential for distilling wisdom and healing from those situations which cause us the greatest pain. In the seminars in this volume, she explores not only the importance of Saturn as the boundary between individual and collective realities, but she also brings exciting new insights about Chiron and the group of newly discovered bodies lying between the orbits of Saturn and Pluto, which astronomy calls the Centaurs.
The three seminars in this book use astrological perspectives to explore a spectrum of extreme psychological states, from the condition known as psychopathy to the collective mechanism of scapegoating as much a pathology as any diagnosed mental illness. Astrologers often avoid confronting the issues of madness and human destructiveness, and political correctness has made it even more difficult to face such issues honestly and without sentiment or hypocrisy. But only by exploring the roots of what we call madness can we find any positive and creative approach to the mystery of why some individuals fail to cope constructively with life’s challenges.
The two seminars combined in this volume offer innovative insights into the way individual character expresses through planetary placements in the quadrants. The reader will find not only an in-depth exploration of the quadrants based on the logic of the zodiac, but also many examples of Sun and Moon combinations in the quadrants, along with a consistently lively interchange with the seminar participants.
