This volume, a directory of astrological correspondences, is the result of a research project that drew together the thoughts of many others into a reference book, assuming the role of a dictionary to astrologers, but vastly more complete. It is the only place where all sign, planetary and house rulerships have been brought together and put in a good workable order. It is organized in such a way that one can use the book for quick and easy reference, and it eliminates the need to search through various other volumes. In four parts: an alphabetical listing, a listing by planets, a listing by signs, a listing by houses. Plus an Appendix with special listings: principal bones of the body, principal veins of the body, chart of an organization, flavors and handwriting forms. Enthusiastically endorsed and used by professionals and students alike, no reference library is complete without this best-selling volume.
I heard about this book from another astrology and she referred to it as her "go to" book for all astrological topics. So, I took the chance and purchased it. If EVER you may wonder what any person, place, thing, or quality is represented by astrologically, buy this book. It TRULY IS a directory of astrological correspondences!
If you find yourself wondering, "Which planet or sign or house does RULES____(fill in the blank), (let's just say, "lumberjacks") you would look up "lumberjacks" and find that it's ruled by Mars & Scorpio. The book is SO easy to use for it's divided into four listings: An Alphabetical Listing, A Listing by, Sign, A Listing by Planets and a Listing by Houses!
THEN....there are special listings of the body's vertebrae, muscles, arteries and veins.
IF you write astrological articles or delineate charts for clients, this book is your friend. Consider it an addition to your library!
Professional astrologers and serious amateurs have a good idea for the more common house elements and can usually express each one's purview with a succinct description as short as a few words or sentences at most. However, there are times when things are not so clear. Whether you're practicing predictive, mundane or horary astrology there are likely to be times when you simply aren't sure where to place a certain situation. As a practitioner of horary I have pulled this book off my shelf numerous times in order to find the correct house placement for a client's question.
The books is a compilation based on surveys gathering opinions from numerous astrologers so does not represent only the view of the author. Thus, there are often more than one designation which is actually more helpful than confusing. That way you can take your specific situation and see where others would place it which often validates your own inclinations. Astrology is more art than science and this work is supportive of that philosophy. I don't always agree with what it indicates but can always see why. It's an invaluable reference you will use more often than you may expect and has earned the respect of astrologers for decades. There are a few books that should be in every astrologer's library and IMHO this is one of them. It first came out in 1971 and is still in avid use which certainly tells you something.
