Karmic Astrology: Past Lives, Present Loves by Ruth Aharoni
there a karmic connection that binds us to the closest people in our lives? If
so, how can we gain insight from past incarnations? Perhaps the answers to these
mind-boggling riddles lie in the stars.
Between Past & Presence by Eric Meyers, M.A.
"Between Past & Presence: A Spiritual View of the Moon & Sun, is an astrology book written at an advanced-beginner to intermediate level for a general audience. This book addresses the relationship between the Moon and Sun and the relevance to spiritual growth. Through exploring signs, houses, aspects, rulerships, nodes, cycles and eclipses, a new paradigm of the luminaries is offered. In short, spiritual growth is furthered by integrating awareness and vitality (Sun) into the depths of the unconscious (Moon). By resolving the past (Moon), we are able to be fully in the present (Sun)."
Aspects by Robin Antepara
"Planetary aspects-the dynamic relationships and energy exchanges between planets-can influence birth charts in profound ways. Picking up where sun sign astrology leaves off, aspects open up new dimensions in understanding how the stars affect us.
This innovative guide challenges the conventional notion that certain planetary relationships (squares, oppositions, and conjunctions) are "bad," while harmonious ones (sextiles and trines) are "good." Using plain language, Robin Antepara explores both types and explains how each is important. Her down-to-earth, lively approach includes many case histories of famous people, ranging from historical figures to celebrities. Readers will learn how Princess Diana alchemized a square between Venus and Uranus and about Martha Stewart's problematic trine between the Sun and Mars."
Venus by Anne Massey
"Who is an enticing beauty, a bitch goddess, and the queen of every natal chart? Venus, of course! Investigating this heavenly body from all angles, Anne Massey brings new dimension to this undervalued planet.
Exploring Venus in mythology, fairy tales, and contemporary archetypes such as Marilyn Monroe, Massey uncovers this planet's striking personality. A close look at her cycles reveals gorgeous symmetry and sacred geometry, linking Venus to the golden mean, the pentagram, and other significant symbols. The author also focuses on this extraordinary planet's aspects and phases, in addition to her impact in the houses and signs, and discusses Venus retrogrades in depth. Lastly, no book on Venus would be complete without examining her dynamic influence on love and marriage."
Houses (Special Topics in Astrology) by Gwyneth Bryan
"On this entertaining jaunt through the stars, Gwyneth Bryan takes us on a
tantalizing tour of house-based astrology.
The Houses - Temples of the Sky by Deborah Houlding
this revised and expanded edition of her first book, Deborah Houlding presents
original research into the history and development of house meanings. The
astrological circle of houses is perceived as a wheel of life, covering the full
spectrum of human experience from formation of character through to death. Why
did the ancient astrologers devise the scheme in such a way that it does not
seem to follow the natural order of life? Where do the meanings for each house
come from and how have they been adapted over the centuries - more importantly,
why? Other books have attempted to resolve these issues, but none have provided
adequate answers. In The Houses: Temples of the Sky Deborah Houlding's
clear narrative & original research into the history & development of house
meanings explores the symbolic threads that are embedded into the philosophy of
houses, strengthening our understanding of their use in practical application."

Astrology of Midlife and Aging (May 2005) by astrology veteran, Erin Sullivan. Expect some heavy reading from an expert.
"The first in-depth analysis of how an individual's natal horoscope reveals the unique challenges and opportunities of midlife.
Between the ages of thirty-seven and forty-one, something mysterious takes place within the psyche. Jung called this phase our "unlived life," assuming rightly that midlife did not inaugurate a time of rapid decay, loss of libido, and inevitable death—but rather ushered in a period in which one might review one's life and build upon a strong foundation toward the next phase of adulthood.
Acclaimed astrologer Erin Sullivan takes us through the vast changes that astrology reveals as we reach middle age. It is a moment in life that is characterized by the planet Uranus, one filled with opportunities to both rethink the past and move forward toward the future, "witnessing" our lives in the way Uranus connotes. There exist no maps of the terrain—except the natal horoscope."
Electional Astrology: The Art Of Timing (June 2005) by Joann Hampar. This book is designed for intermediate students of astrology, and offers tips and techniques for choosing the right dates for business deals, weddings, and more. This book explores the complex branch of astrology called electional astrology.
"Planning a wedding? Scheduling surgery? Buying a house? How do you choose a
date and time that offers the best chance of success? The odds are in your favor
when you plan life events using electional astrology-a branch of astrology that
helps you align with the power of the universe.
"Astrology as a spiritual discipline rather than a predictive system. Most of
what has been written in the name of astrology refers to personality and
prediction. Divine Astrology presents Astrology in its true sense as a spiritual
rather than predictive system. It sees personality as being an expression of
Spirit, and life as being a journey of Spirit driven by cosmic forces and
governed by definite laws. Seen in this way the user is no longer simply a
hapless puppet of the astrological influences prevailing at birth and through
life. He or she is seen as an entity who can become en rapport with the very
energies that are the stuff of astrology, the Planetary Powers. It relates these
to the nature of God, to other religions and to modern cosmology and physics. We
are co-creators with God, and by communing with the Hands of God, the Planetary
Powers, we can change our destiny for the better.
