The best books for learning psychological astrology

The Books I Picked & Why

The Development of the Personality: Seminars in Psychological Astrology, Vol. 1

By Liz Greene, Howard Sasportas

The Development of the Personality: Seminars in Psychological Astrology, Vol. 1

Why this book?

I was fortunate to have attended a lecture in 1988 presented by Liz Greene, I didn’t quite understand much of what she said because I was just a beginner, but I loved her passion and how other astrologers held onto every word she spoke. This was one of my first books on psychological astrology and I have bought nearly every book she has ever written since. Understanding the very basics of personality gives astrology an incredible foundation on which to then learn how to read the natal chart. This does just that.

Astrology, Karma & Transformation

Why this book?

When I read his expose of the Saturn Return I knew that I had hit upon a hidden gem. His description of how to read and use the conflicts of planets, signs, and houses within the chart changed the way I approached my readings, and to Stephen, I am eternally grateful.

Exploring Consciousness In the Horoscope

By Noel Tyl

Exploring Consciousness In the Horoscope

Why this book?

Noel Tyl pioneered the concept of Jungian archetypes that could be translated into astrological signs, houses, and planets. Tyl edits this compendium on exploring consciousness in the astrology chart with some of the early astrologers. Although an older book, it shows how astrology today has stepped forward to embrace a deeper understanding of consciousness through the horoscope beyond what we are told on the six o’clock news.
