Hellenistic astrology is a tradition of horoscopic astrology that was practiced in the Mediterranean region from approximately the first century BCE until the seventh century CE. It is the source of many of the modern traditions of astrology that still flourish around the world today, although it is only recently that many of the surviving texts of this tradition have become available again for astrologers to study.
Hellenistic Astrology: The Study of Fate and Fortune is the first comprehensive survey of this tradition in modern times. The book covers the history, philosophy, and techniques of ancient astrology, with a special focus on demonstrating how many of the fundamental concepts underlying the practice of western astrology originated during the Hellenistic period.
Though the practice of astrology is many centuries old, it is only perhaps once in a generation that a thoroughly new, totally original way of looking at the zodiac is discovered. The New Astrology is such a system.
For those convinced that there is nothing new under the sun–or the stars–Suzanne White offers a startling and provocative thesis: There are not 12 but 144 signs of the zodiac, each distinct, each unique, each vital to everyone’s quest for self-understanding.
By combining the astrological systems of the traditional Chinese (terrestrial) with that of the Occident (celestial), Suzanne White demonstrates that each of us is governed by two signs. Hence, a Capricorn Tiger is likely to be quite different from a Capricorn Cat, as is a Leo Dog from a Leo Dragon, and so on. This unique blend of Western and Chinese Astrology gives detailed analyses of each of the 144 signs, including individualized sections of love, sex and romance, business, money, careers, home life and compatibility (or lack of it) with other signs.
Already a best-seller in France, The New Astrology is a massive undertaking and the result of more than a decade of research and study of the two systems. It offers insights into not only our own lives, but also those of all who are close to us. Suzanne White’s prose is lucid, candid, and suffused with a sense of fun, but The New Astrology is above all a serious tool for self-awareness and understand the rich variety of human nature all around us.
Humans have looked to the stars for guidance for thousands of years. It seems to be embedded in our DNA. The Magic of the Stars incorporates new information into ancient knowledge, explaining the roles played by the fixed stars in greater depth than ever before.
In this new guide, you are given all the information you need to understand how stars work their magic to empower and enrich your life. The Magic of the Stars doesn’t just rely on sun-sign astrology, which groups you in one of the twelve zodiac signs. Instead, it looks at the role individual stars play in forming your unique gifts.
This book includes information for around one hundred stars that have not been previously analyzed. You may know of Sirius or the stars of Orion, but what about stars in constellations like the Giraffe, the Golden Fish, the Microscope and the Unicorn?
For each star, astrologer Roderick Kidston presents an astronomical designation, its common name, its position and meaning, and some famous examples of those it influences.

Planets, signs, and houses… You’ve never learned about them in such radically sensible, memorable, and useful depth! Vic DiCara reveals the clear and threadbare logic behind why the planets, signs, and houses represent the things they do, bringing the occult mysteries of astrology into rational and systematic clarity. Based on Sanskrit classics explored and realized through careful practice and contemplation, this book erases the boundaries between “Vedic” and “Western” and makes the deep wisdom of the Veda easily digestible to every modern reader. Six years in the making, carefully written and edited, and replete with extremely valuable diagrams, this is the final version of the textbook Vic DiCara has developed to teach his Level One astrology course.
The Night Speaks is a one-of-kind astrology book. In it, best-selling author Steven Forrest offers a model for how astrology works, illuminating the reasons, both rational and transcendent, that astrology has been the focus of his spiritual life.
In his own words, “I love astrology passionately. Every day I see it helping people. But on the street, astrology is still mostly viewed as silliness. Anyone who ‘believes in it’ is taken for a fool. This inspired me to ask: Could I write the book an open-minded critic might read and be inspired to give astrology an hour to prove itself? Could I write one that my clients could confidently hand their skeptical friends? In other words, could I break through the monumental wall of prejudice and ignorance that has kept astrology trapped in its ghetto? This book is my response, and explains why astrology is both intellectually and spiritually plausible.”

Astrology, Psychology and the Four Elements by Stephen Arroyo, a recognized classic in modern astrology, is truly a pioneering book in the field of astrology. It establishes a new science of astrological psychology. Arroyo presents a language of energy that has enabled astrology to be widely and reliably used in the helping professions as well as by the general public. As Library Journal stated, “Transcending the boundaries of separate disciplines, this work represents a major distillation of astrological principles.” This book relates astrology to modern psychology and explains the use of astrology as a practical method of understanding one’s attunement to universal forces. It clearly shows how to approach astrology with a real understanding of the energies involved, and it includes practical instruction in the interpretation of astrological factors with more depth than is commonly found in astrological textbooks. It was awarded the Astrology Prize by the British Astrological Association.
