EBOOK / KINDLE [The Real Astrology]
Or not correct You can t do that with modern astrologers because they are too nebulous ethereal and psychological They will tell you the high side and low side of every planet And they have scads of aspects to discuss in which every planet has eual weight with every other planet in the chart So anything is possible Real astrology dispenses with all that It looks at a planet s strength in the chart It looks at four possible aspects and it derives an answer It gives you a definite predictionBut Frawley barely touches on How to in this book He glosses those concepts uickly First he assumes the reader already nows the basics of astrology What he s doing is arguing for traditional astrology against modern astrology And he does a very good job His book is also entertaining to read very witty In a lot of ways it can be used to defend a Creationist view of the world But don t worry the Christian Fundamentalists will not recruit an astrologer even though he has a far better grasp of what they say they believe than they doFrawley shows WHY planets are stronger in some houses than in others He shows WHY they are stronger in some signs than others He also divides up some of the niceties of distinction between a planet being dignified vs a planet being in its joy Read this book if you are serious about the self discipline and education necessary to be a really good astrologer Read it if you want another opinion on Creationism If you want to make money read Liz Greene and buy a printercopier to enable you to print off lots of templates and reports John Frawley is really trying to help his reader THINK like an astrologer One of the best books on the subject For beginners I recommend to read The Horary Textbook first and maybe Lilly s Christian AstrologyThe Real Astrology has a wide cover in philosophical aspects of astrology and the author make astonishing criticism to modern astrology in a clear and direct wayIt s really a must read book Excellent synthesis of the tradition of astrology A real eye opener for astrology students It s a good book but too filled with his polemic against Jungian astrologers though amusing and not enough astrology His chapter on Modern Astrology is worthless He gives a few case examples but they are hard to follo. Logy and a detailed introduction to all the main branches of the traditional craft Accessible to those with no prior nowledge of the subject yet sufficiently through to serve as a vade mecum for the student or practitioner.
Warning This book decidedly is not for modern astrologers who think nothing bad will ever happen This is for astrologers with a traditional bent Indeed Frawley who is blessed with excellent British wit deploys it against the thinking of the moderns I liked this book a lot but I found it to give somewhat short shrift to natal astrology in favor of horary For that purpose his Horary Textbook can t be beat If you already have that one you will probably find that you don t get much extra from The Real Astrology Except entertainment of course Where do I begin This book is both profound but also side splittingly funny There is real Wit here of the old fashioned variety combining learning and irreverence Throw away almost everything you have on astrology and get this book I found the exposition on the philosophy fascinating though I d gripe a teeny bit on Astrology being totally connected with the revealed faiths But that does not stop me from admiring this tour de force taking in everything from Horary to Mundane Astrology and plenty else besides Plus this stuff really works A great read for traditional astrologyThat said I would have prefered if the author would have grumbled less about modern astrology and used those pages to give details on certain techniuesI felt it lacking in the discussion of essential dignities faces terms and temperament In The Real Astrology John Frawley purports to at one single blow differentiate modern astrology from its traditional form attack the so called scientific view of astrology uphold tradition in the light of the perennial school and give an outlook on the various branches and uses of traditional astrologyThis book can easily be picked up and read by a total stranger to the celestial arts but it paradoxically remains challenging even to the initiated Written in clear ellegant if tong in cheek prose this book delivers what it promisses backed by a solid cultural foundationThe Real Astrology won t do what it does not promisse to ie teach you the art But it is a fine entrance to the world of traditional astrology packed with suggestions of further reading for the ensnared apprentice I have been told that John Frawley now rejects some parts of this book Maybe he was under a too heavy influence of th.
