Volume One - The Signs, Planets and Houses of the Horoscope
This publication takes a new and revitalised look at astrology. It is simple to understand, yet remains a powerful tool, capable of providing a solid foundation for the comprehension of this broad and magnificent subject.
This textbook, like most of Dr. Baker’s printed books, eBooks and DVDs, enhances your studies via many charts, lists, tables and images (over 100 in this one). This major work is a very comprehensive introduction for those who want to study this subject in earnest, and for the more advanced student it will serve as an essential reference manual.
In today's computer-based world it is no longer necessary to spend hours calculating a horoscope when the most modest PCs can do it in seconds, and with 100% accuracy! Consequently the needless paraphernalia, usually associated with learning astrology, has been stripped away. Emphasis is placed on the application of astrology to the unique problems of the modern world, its use as a method of revealing purpose and meaning in life, and ultimately as a key to the psychosynthesis of personality.
The horoscope is described in comprehensive detail, with special attention given to the esoteric ruling planets of the zodiac signs, which are more relevant than orthodox rulers in the charts of spiritually-minded people. The new rulers also accommodate the immense changes in external conditions and inner consciousness that have occurred in the last hundred years and are related to a new range of experience which the brain registers as the externa of the modern world. The significance of karma is represented for it gives dramatic effect to our daily actions, and the third factor of esoteric psychology, lying beyond our understanding of heredity and environment, is given full prominence. This integrative and enriching work can be read alone, as a fascinating introduction and foundation to the New Astrology, or can be followed up with the author's extensive range of astrological books and video tapes, audio lectures and the all-embracing Dictionary of Astrology for the 21st Century. Together they provide a complete system for the professional and novice alike, containing efficient and extraordinary techniques of interpretation which have never been used before and which halve the time required to assimilate and practise astrology.
Alan Oken masterfully guides you through the concepts of the meanings and the nature of the twelve astrological houses. He provides a core description of the twelve areas of life delineated by the astrological house system. The energy of each of the planets in the houses tells us where on Earth that planet's energy lands and what area of our life it highlights. He gives a masterful analysis of how the astrological signs on the house cusps and the planets ruling the signs on houses express the nature of each house.
The planets, signs, and houses in a chart represent the "whats", "hows", and "wheres", of your life. The planets tell us "what" kind of energy is at work. The signs indicate "how" this energy is working. But it is the houses that reveals "where" the events, people, and places in your life may be found. Alan Oken provides an expert guide to the understanding of the astrological houses and their interaction with these other elements of the horoscope.
