The Outer Planets and Their Cycles

 

outer_planets.jpg"The Outer Planets and Their Cycles – The Astrology of the Collective", written by Liz Greene, was originally published in 1983 and revised in 2005. The book is based on a series of lectures given by the author in 1980. As Liz Greene wrote in the preface to the 2005 edition, this book "contains probably the first published prediction of the fall of the Soviet Union".


Lecture One: An introduction to the outer planets    

In this first part the author presents the meaning of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. She wrotes that the creative ideas symbolised by Uranus are taken in the world, in a conscious way, mostly, by people with a Saturn conjunct Uranus.

Pluto is linked with a certain vision of the Universe and with the Hermetic world – view.

 

Lecture Two: Aspects to the outer planets    

The author wrote about Pluto in Libra, Chiron, the aspects between Uranus and Pluto, Sun and Neptune, Saturn and Uranus, Saturn and Neptune, Saturn and Pluto, the periods when Uranus, Pluto, Neptune were discovered and the synchronic events. For example:


"Neptune materialises as the alcoholic or the deceitful partner, and Uranus dresses as the partner who leaves you, and Pluto disguises himself as the partner who has power over you or has some pretty complicated sexual and emotional patterns. […] A person with strong outer planet contacts may have a disruptive effect in the group, because the outer planets tend to feel threatening to more Saturnian values."

 

Lecture Three: The outer planets in individual horoscopes    

The author writes about the chart of Adolf Hitler (Pluto – Neptune conjunction, Uranus on the Ascendent), Karl Marx (Uranus – Neptune conjunction square Saturn and Pluto), Lenin (Uranus square Neptune), Freud (Sun with Uranus), Jung (Sun with Uranus square Neptune), the Uranus – Pluto conjunction of 1960.    

 

Lecture Four: Outer planets rulership of signs and houses    

The author writes about Uranus, Neptune and Pluto as co-rulers of Aquarius, Pisces and Scorpio. Also about Saturn and Pluto in the 12th house.

 

Lecture Five: The USSR and the Uranus – Neptune conjunction    

In this chapter the author wrote about the transit of Pluto on the URSS Sun and predicted the disintegration of the Soviet Union around 1989.

 

Lecture Six: Outer planets in everyday life    

The author presents many examples of outer planets in aspects with personal planets, especially with Venus, and of outer planets placed in angles, especially in the 7th and 10th house.

 

Lecture Seven: The outer planets and the Astrological Ages    

The author wrote about the Piscean Age, the religions and myths associated, the transition to the Aquarian Age.

 

The book has 2 appendixes, one is "The Generation Gap", an interesting article about the astrological links between generations, the second is "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: the Chiron – Pluto cycle", an article about the cycle of Chiron and Pluto.

 

 

MY EVALUATION: 8,79

 

Conclusion. "The Outer Planets and Their Cycles – The Astrology of the Collective" is a very good book of mundane astrology, written in 1983, when there wasn’t many written material on this subject. It treats different themes of mundane astrology, it’s diverse and interesting to read. It isn’t so detailed and comprehensive as Mundane Astrology, but still is one of the best books on mundane astrology, a book where the reader will meat the accuracy and clarity of Liz Greene’s vision of astrology. My evaluation is 8,79.

 

The Art of Stealing Fire: Uranus in the Horoscope

 

uranus.jpgThe Art of Stealing Fire: Uranus in the Horoscope is a book published first time in 1996, based on the CPA (Centre for Psychological Astrology) seminars held by Liz Greene in the same year. The book’s topics are centered around the planets Uranus and Saturn.


Part One: Uranus in the natal chart  

The author presents the mythology of Uranus and his association with Prometheus and Ouranos. Also is presented the influence of Uranus in houses:

 

"In the area of life ruled by the house in which Uranus is placed, we all long, consciously or unconsciously, to be Prometheus and offer the world the gift of fire."

 

Then, the author writes about the aspects of Uranus with the personal planets: Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars and Sun. For example, about the Moon – Uranus aspect:

 

"Because the Moon’s nature is fundamentally alien to Uranian vision, such aspects – whether "hard" or "soft" – are liable to be very difficult, especially in the early part of life. The Moon keeps saying, "What’s going on? Why can’t I have any stability? I don’t want to be separate. I don’t want to be yanked out of my nice home and torn away from my family. I don’t want to know about any of this ‘cosmos’ nonsense. I’m terrified."

 

or about the Mars – Uranus aspect:

 

"Uranus tends to make Mars more intellectual, and less instinctual in its expression; and while that may make a person more civilised and socialised, it can also create difficulties on the sexual level, and in the sphere of expressing anger and aggression. […] There is a strenuousness, a rigorousness about Mars – Uranus which can result in enormous feats of courage and stamina, but which can equally generate a kind of blind stupidity about danger and risk." 

   

Part 2. The Transits of Saturn and Uranus

In part 2, the author writes about the transits of Saturn and Uranus, from the perspective of planetary cycles:

 

"All transits are part of a cycle, and all planetary cycles connect with other planetary cycles and create repeating patterns in the birth chart. Nothing in a chart is isolated and nothing is really a "one – off".

 

In The meaning of the Saturn cycle is presented the cycle of Saturn from a very modern and, in the same time, profound perspective:

 

"The Saturn cycle makes us separate people. That is its meaning – its teleology, if you like. The cycle of Saturn builds, stone by stone and brick by brick, a defined, incarnate being."

 

After this passage, are presented the planetary aspects between Saturn – Neptune, Saturn – Sun and Saturn – Venus, also like cycles.

 

In The meaning of the Uranus cycle the author presents the cycle of Uranus, starting with a nice analogy between Saturn and Uranus:


"While Saturn is busily putting bits of cement into the cracks and underpinning the foundations of the ego’s walls, Uranus comes along and says, "There is no window in the wall. You can’t see out. How are you going to know there is a whole cosmos out there? That wall interferes with the progress of the group, and stands as a barrier to collective evolution. Sorry, but it has to come down. I might let you have a wall, but you will have to make it more flexible. Put in a couple of extra doors. Put in some windows. Use wood instead of bricks. Better yet, use lightweight prefabricated panels, and then it can be dismantled and moved when necessary."

 

Then, it is written a lot about the blended influences of the cycles of Uranus and Saturn at the 20-22 years, 38-42 years and 56-60 years. In the final part of the book are presented some case studies. 

 

 

MY EVALUATION: 9,4

 

Conclusion. The Art of Stealing Fire: Uranus in the Horoscope is a modern book of astrology in which we can find issues of psychology, mythology and planetary cycles in an exceptional blending.

The author explains very well what Uranus, Saturn and their cycles symbolize. The interpretation of Saturn, in my opinion, it’s better than in Saturn – A New Look at an Old Devil, a book of the same author, and the interpretation of Uranus is one of the best available. 

The reader will be impressed by the smooth and clear discussions from the book, which emerges from such a profound understanding o
f the astrological symbolism. The author capacity to explain in such a clear text some very difficult issues like Uranus, Saturn, their psychological influence on the individual, the relation between present events and their childhood roots, the interrelated cycles of the two planets, proves such a masterful skill in understanding and explaining astrology, psychology, people and their life. M
y evaluation is 9,4

Brady's Book of Fixed Stars

fixed_stars.jpgBernadette Brady is an Australian astrologer who lives in Bristol, UK. She wrote Star and Planet Combinations (2008), Astrology – a Place of Chaos (2006), Brady’s Book of Fixed Stars (1998), Predictive Astrology (1992, 1999) and received  the Charles Harvey Award (2006).


Part 1. In the beginning    

In the beginning the author wrote about fixed stars from a philosophical point of view, seeing them as the fixed center of our world, the axis which never moves, an attribute which gives fixed stars great importance and make us to study them with more attention. She also wrote about precession, mythology and history.

 

It is presented the historical evolution of our knowledge in working with fixed stars which revealed an interesting discovery: before Ptolemy fixed stars were studied in a system similar with parans used today by some astrologers, but Ptolemy changed the method using a much simpler one, respectively a simple projection to the ecliptic which was good for astronomy, but bad for astrology. Unfortunately, astrologers took the new system as a good one, and we lost some valuable information.  

 

Parans is presented in detail and also some advices for working with parans.

   

Part 2. The Constellations

In this chapter are presented the constellations and more than 60 fixed stars.

The constellations presented here are: Andromeda, Aquila, Ara, Argo, Auriga, Bootes, Canis Major, Canis Minor, Canes Venetici, Cassiopeia, Centaurus, Cepheus, Cetus, Coma Berenices, Corona Australis, Corona Borealis, Corvus, The Crater, Crux, Cygnus, Delphinus, Draco, Equuleus, Eridanus, Hercules, Hydra, Lepus, Lupus, Lyra, Ophiucus, Orion, Pegasus, Perseus, Piscis Australis, Sagitta, Triangulum, Triangulum Australe, Ursa Major, Ursa Minor. 

 

Part 3. Zodiac, the ring of life

In this chapter are presented the constellations placed on the ecliptic and their most important fixed stars.

The constellations presented are: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces.

 

Part 4. Star phases

In this chapter the author presents the phases of stars:

 

"its rising with the Sun on a particular calendar date, its period of visibility in the night sky and its period of invisibility when it was not present in the night sky".

 

There are detailed examples about star phases where is explained the meaning of a curtailed passage, heliacal rising or setting,  acronychal rising or setting, arising and lying hidden, the period of a passage etc.

 

Part 5. Fixed stars and the natal chart

In this chapter the author gives a set of examples for how to work with fixed stars on a natal chart:

1. Create a list with the fixed stars which have a paran relationship to your chart.

2. Sort this into rising stars, culminating stars, setting stars and stars on the Nadir. The first three corresponds to the life periods (25 years for each), the fourth is after life.

3. Look what stars from the list are heliacal rising or have passage because those are the most important. Stars that never rises for your location should not be used at all.

 

 

MY EVALUATION: 8,3

 

Conclusion. The book is a comprehensive material on fixed stars, more that 350 pages written, but it doesn’t seem Bernadette Brady had a big experience in working with fixed stars, or at least in the book presents a lot of what was written by others, and not so much her experience with fixed stars.

Her personal examples on fixed stars are generally when working with parans and not so convincing in my opinion. 

The parans technique is a central issue in the book, it is presented in detail and also used in all the examples, but this method has not a solid position in the astrologers world, some accepts it, some not.

Anyway, with her pluses and minuses, I can say that Brady’s Book of Fixed Stars is the best book on fixed stars until 1998, especially because it collects almost all what was written on fixed stars until that year. My evaluation is 8,3.   

Houses in astrology

 

Houses are symbols which represent in astrology different areas of life. Any planet placed in a house works in the area of life symbolised by that house.

Even the meaning is simple, houses generate other important problems like the systems used to divide house or where should be placed the beginning of a house influence.

Nowadays, the most used system of houses is Placidus. Other house systems with many users are: Koch, Whole Sign Houses or Campanus. I use Whole Sign Houses.

 

For a better understanding of the houses symbolism, let’s read Liz Greene’s opinion:

 

"It is useful to think of the houses as stages sets representing particular spheres of life. The houses are like the empty stages at the beginning of the play, before the actors appear, and each one has its characteristic decor, furniture, and objects, according to the domain which the house rules and the sign on the cusp of the house. We all have the same twelve houses in our chart, and they are the broad arenas in which we seek and encounter life experiences. A house in the abstract sense has no backdrop and no lighting; this is dependent on the sign on the cusp, which gives it its particular colouration. But then the actors come on stage, and these are the planets. Then we are going to meet something very powerful in this sphere of life, and we will have to engage in a dialogue, and involve ourselves in the drama"

 

"When a planet is placed in a house, it is like meeting a god. There is a archetypal pattern at work, a kind of vortex of energy in which one immediately becomes caught up. The moment one enters the affairs of that house, all the matters concerned are affected by the planet. A sign on cusp doesn’t have this kind of power."

Mythological lore

Uranus is more often associated with Prometheus the Titan, descendent of the god Ouranos and Gaia, the Earth, his sister- wife. Prometheus means “foresight” and he is credited with the creation of human beings from clay and with artistic and cultural skills. He teaches people astrology, navigation, architecture, everything that involves knowledge of the cosmic world, he is “a king of inspirational daimon”.

The most important action of Prometheus, was when he stole fire and gave it to humans against the whishes of Zeus. Fire is associated with creativity, enlightenment, intellectual and spiritual awakening, cultural and technological breakthrough, awareness of self, imagination, vision, consciousness. After this act, Prometheus was punished by Zeus, who chained him to a mountain and left him to an eagle which came every day to eat his liver, which is always regenerating to keep him in a constant agony. Also humans were punished when Pandora was sent on Earth with her box of woes.

The punishment of Prometheus symbolise the effect of the Uranian activity: isolation, the impossibility to deal with all the results of the creation, the use of creation in bad ways, the price to be paid.

As a symbol of Ouranos, father of Prometheus, the planet Uranus may symbolise the ideas that precedes physical creation (Ouranos emerged from chaos) like Plato’s Ideal Forms.
