Book cover of Exploring Consciousness In the Horoscope

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.

Exploring Consciousness In the Horoscope

By Noel Tyl (editor),

Why should I read it?

1 author picked Exploring Consciousness In the Horoscope as one of their favorite books, and they share why you should read it.

What is this book about?

Astrology is an exciting tool for finding the meaning of life and our part within it, to bring our inner selves together with our external realities, in appreciation of the spirit. Here, ten astrologers come together to share reflections on the elusive quicksilver of consciousness. They embrace the spiritual -- and the practical -- from pulling yourself out of a wayward journey to finding your true path.

Who am I?

I've had a deep passion for the esoteric world since childhood. I read books on everything to do with ghosts, magic, and astral travel, and began drawing up astrology charts from books I had borrowed from the library as a teenager. I studied astrology back in the mid-1980s when the new age was in full swing. Ten years later I went back to university and studied to become a psychologist. I am a firm believer that an understanding of personality through depth psychotherapy, and the hidden wisdom found in alternative schools of knowledge, can enhance one’s personal and spiritual growth in the difficult times we face today.

By Noel Eastwood,

Book cover of Psychological Astrology And The Twelve Houses

What is my book about?

I spend a lot of time preparing for a reading, and when mentoring students and professionals, by first examining the house position of the planets. The planet’s house position allows you to see a side of your personality that you would normally miss in a general reading. Dig deep and you will find gold. I wrote this book so that I could show astrologers how to do just that.

The Development of the Personality

By Liz Greene, Howard Sasportas,

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

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.
