    That's a great idea Soulscape - to have each of us use only one post and keep adding to it. This will save time and space, and make it much easier to look things up.

    Soulscape's Library

    ETA: 1/7/08 - 3:25 pm

    I found out from the Mods yesterday, that a post can only be edited for a few hours after creation, so the Astrologers won't be able to put all their recommendations into one post as I suggested in Post #1 above.

    As time permits, I'm sure each Astrologer will add posts to this Thread.

    Here are my initial choices. I'll be adding more entries to this Thread from time to time, so please check every once in a while.

    Thanks,
    Soulscape

    Horary:

    Horary Astrology Plain & Simple by Anthony Louis

    A very good introduction to the principles of horary astrology with clear explanations and (relatively) easy to follow. This book is one of my trusted references.

    Simplified Horary Astrology by Ivy M. Goldstein-Jacobson

    One of the greatest horary astrology books ever written. A must for the serious horary astrologer's Library.

    CHRISTIAN ASTROLOGY, Book 1: An Introduction to Astrology; Book 2: The Resolution of All Manner of Questions by William Lilly

    The most famous astrology book in the English language, prized by students ever since its first publication in 1647. The horary astrology in these pages is demanding and precise, combining science and art. Properly used, it will give answer to any well-defined question.

    The Horary Textbook by John Frawley

    An excellent instruction book, based on William Lilly's horary principles. A must for any horary astrologer.

    HORARY ASTROLOGY: An Introduction to the Astrology of Time by Derek Appleby

    Another favorite in my Library. Appleby's work was influenced by Ivy M. Goldstein-Jacobson as well as William Lilly and is based on years of personal experience working with charts. Very interesting insights.

    The Rulership Book by Rex E. Bills

    Not a horary astrology book per se, but an indispensable reference for determining which planet rules what, and what the Signs & Houses rule. Entries are listed in alphabetical order, by Planet, by Sign, by House with Appendix covering bones, vertebrae and muscles of the body, chart of an organization, flavors and forms (handwriting).

    The Astrological Thesaurus Book 1: House Keywords by Michael Munkasey

    Another excellent reference book that will get plenty of use!

    Can we include asking the astrologers for their software recommendations? I'm specifically looking for a good interpretation program. I have Janus so I have all the charts I need. Thanks!

    Here are some technical confusion and I found in Thread 1. I have not organized these well, so feel free, and I will delete this post. (Or I will try to organize this weekend.)

    Hello everyone. Just did a quick search through Thread #1 for links for astro info, help, charts, etc.. someone asked for a few days ago. I am in a rush, so may have missed some, but here is what I have:

    http://lessons.astrology.com/

    http://www.panix.com/~gsk/yod2.html

    http://www.panix.com/~gsk/yod2.html

    http://www.cafeastrology.com/astrolo...midpoints.html
    http://www.astro.com/astrology/in_intro_e.htm

    www.bobmarksastrologer.com

    www.astrowin.org

    http://www.renaissanceastrology.com/

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0738709832 Don McBroom's "Midpoints"

    Avoid, like the plague, any pop astrology book, and any book that promises to tell you how to "tell your future"!

    And, most importantly, have your son read these two web pages, so he understands the Biblically proper use of astrology.

    http://www.librarising.com/spirituality/bible.html

    http://www.gospelway.com/religiousgroups/witchcraft.php

    Once he has a good solid sense of how to properly study and research astrology, a good book to buy for him is "Forensic Astrology", by Dave Campbell. You probably won't find it in the library, but it is available on Amazon.

    For those ready for a professional astrology program for their personal computer (Windows compatible, NOT Mac) many astrologers I know use Solar Fire http://www.alabe.com/ or Kepler http://www.astrosoftware.com/KEPLER.HTM

    www.strangehouse.com is one of the free chart places


    Here is thread #1

    http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...r+astrological


    Feel free to add, and feel free to add all of the books mentioned in all the threads so we can compile a list. Just don't want us beginners to forget to at least give it a try on the side. (Not that I could learn in 20 years, and then I will be rather old if still alive, but...)

    ETA: Here are the other threads to date also, I just haven't had time to do this, did not get #1 thoroughly. Boss keeps coming in.
    Thread # 5 http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=76505
    Thread # 4 http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=75469
    Thread # 3 http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=73881
    Thread # 2 http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=71426
    Thank you again for all of our more knowledgeable Astrology Friends here!

    And from technical confusion:

    These are the books I have from the first thread on my list:

    Books:

    Don McBroom's "Midpoints", http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0738709832
    Simplified Horary Astrology
    Sue Tompkins - Aspects in Astrology
    Sub-title is "A Guide to Understanding Planetary Relationships in the Horoscope".
    Isabel Hickey - Astrology, A Cosmic Science
    Rob Hand's "Horoscope Symbols" and Planets in Transit? (not sure of that last book)
    March and McEvers - The Only Way to Learn about Astrology
    Carol Rushman -The Art of Predictive Astrology
    Dave Campbell - Forensic Astrology
    Rex E. Bills - The Rulership Book
    Marc Edmund Jones -The Guide to Horoscope Interpretation (1941, 1969)
    Stephen Arroyo - Chart Interpretation Handbook(1989)
    Nicholas de Vore - The Encyclopedia of Astrology - not good for beginners

    For reading your own chart:

    Donna Cunningham - How to Read Your Astrological Chart (1999)
    Timothy Curley - How to Read Your Own Horoscope (1995)

    And Tuba highly praised these two authors:

    Evangeline Adams and Charles E.O. Carter

    Unless I have included a link, it is my opinion and only my opinion that I am expressing.

    More Horary Books

    Here are some more Horary Books in my Library:


    Horary Astrology Rediscovered by Olivia Barclay (1919 - 2001)

    Teacher of John Frawley (see The Horary Textbook in my post #6 above.) Responsible for bringing William Lilly's Christian Astrology back into the astrological mainstream. Developed a qualifying horary diploma course leading to the Q.H.P. certification (Qualified Horary Practitioner).

    Quote: "Much of astrology is unprovable waffle. The advantage of horary questions is that they work and can be seen to work."

    An important book for the well-rounded Horary Astrologer's Library.


    Handbook of Horary Astrology by Karen Hamaker-Zondag

    Quote: "In horary astrology, all the information is based on rulers. If this is forgotten, the answer fails."

    Suggests using the natal chart to gain supplementary information; also explains the concept of the Consultation Chart (cast for the moment the client arrives) and its usefulness.



    The Martial Art of Horary Astrology by Dr. J. Lee Lehman, Ph.D.

    On the faculty at Kepler College, Dr. Lehman is a proponant of Western Classical Astrology (William Lilly, etc.). She is an excellent interpreter of mundane charts as well as difficult ones.


    The Houses Temples of the Sky by Deborah Houlding

    Not a horary book per se, but a highly useful addition to the horary astrologer's reference library. Ms. Houlding, an amazingly prolific astrologer, gives an excellent and thorough examination of the 12 houses, including their main rulerships, and their uses in Horary as well as Mundane astrology.

    Free horary lessons are available at her web site, http://www.skyscript.co.uk/


    The Astrology of Death by Richard Houck (1947 - 2001)

    Not for the faint-hearted and definitely not for beginners. Pluto people will love it. A technical and brilliant analysis of every type of death, both expected and unexpected. Houck's work combines both the Hindu (Vedic) and Western systems of astrology.


    Thanks,

    Hi All - just checking in here to share: I ordered several of the books Soulscape recommended. I ordered many of them USED from Amazon and got very good prices. I have received the first one, which of course is one of the harder ones and I have no idea what it is telling me but I'm working on that

    Also, I have been spending a bit of time at the astro websites and finding many of them to be very informative.

    I have not seen this posted here:

    http://forensicastrology.blogspot.com/

    She uses horay and birth charts for missing people and unsolved murders. She has done everyone from Stacey Peterson to Madeline McCann to Caylee Anthony. Her archives are pretty extensive and it is fun to look at. She also takes request. She has actually done charts for a couple I emailed her about which was nice.

    Hi everyone,

    I wanted to say that anything written by Robert Hand or translated by him through ARHAT is guaranteed not only to be based on fine scholarship but also to be eminently readable. He's a good writer and has excellent deep roots in the ancient literature. He did my first chart for me back in the 1980s, when you still had to send away to get an accurate birth chart instead of being able to go to astrodeinst.com and get one instantaneously. I personally couldn't do without Rob's Planets in Transit.

    Also, for planetary relationships within a chart, Robert Pelletier's Planets in Aspect is pretty solid. These both are good for mundane astrology, which I think is where people need to start. I think you really need to have internalized a lot of the basics before branching into Horary and other specialties. There's a really good comprehensive list here, as well: http://www.astroamerica.com/topten.html.

    A caution from my personal opinion is this: Avoid Nicholas de Vore like the plague. I saw his encyclopedia in this thread above, which caused me to come out of lurking, and his encyclopedia is also on the astroamerica list whose link I just posted. However, you have no idea what a dark soul this man is. He believes he is a dragon, he waxes poetic about the beneficial effects of drinking the menstrual blood of young maidens, he is deep deep deep into being descended from aristocracy and therefore being genetically superior to mere mortals. I'll never spend a dime of my money on any work by that man, that's for sure.

    If an astrology thread gets going on those two poor girls gunned down near Waleetka, Oklahoma, I will want to participate in that. That one gnaws at me.

    Love & blessings

    Hello- there are some of us who find this fascinating, but know NOTHING about forensic astrology, or astrology in general. I was wondering if any of you knew of any basic "intro to astrology" type websites where some of us who have an interest but no background could read up, and hopefully understand more of what's being posted?

    I tried googling, but I don't want to bark up the wrong tree. Maybe if the Astrologists here could if they have a minute post a link to a clear website they think might be helpful? Any link/insight would be much appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Hi FifthEssence,

    Here's another for that list. I've got this
    How to Interpret a Horoscope
    that my friend Greg wrote, with sections on Signs, Planets, Houses and Aspects. It's a pretty good little primer.

    Recommendations/referrals?

    Can our experts PM me with links or other contact info to reputable horary chart interpreters, please? I have googled, but don't want to get involved in a scam. I am NOT looking for a personal reading from any of you...at all...whatsoever. I'm genuinely only looking for a referral or two. If you don't know anyone to refer me to, maybe you know of a reputable organization I can contact to begin the process of finding a reader? Thanks in advance.
