Essays on the Foundations of Astrology

179 pages | Paperback | Theosophical Publishing House, 1978

Charles Carter (1887-1968) wrote this book in London during World War II. It was his first book in more than a dozen years.
In this book, Carter turns his attention to fundamentals. Why the planets are what they are. How the Sun differs from the Moon. How Jupiter and Mercury are interrelated. Having had his fill of aspects in terms of the planets, in this book Carter tells us of aspects in terms of signs and the elements they represent. A planet in a fire sign, in square to a planet in an earth sign, Carter says, is an obviously difficult combination: Fire consumes earth, or, earth smothers fire. On the other hand, air/water squares are much less stressful.

Carter was particularly fascinated by the nativities of Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler, his contemporaries. Charts for both men are given. Mussolini he declares to be a “bombastic Italian dictator”, but Hitler remained a puzzle.

Carter’s books, penetrating & full of unique insights, are ideal for intermediate & advanced astrologers. They are, in fact, virtually in a class by themselves. Carter’s books are organic wholes. He shows how individual astrological factors combine to create living, breathing people. It is this constant interplay of factors, and Carter’s brilliant, lucid exposition, that makes his books so precious. C.E.O. Carter (1887 – 1968) was the most outstanding British astrologer of the 20th century. After the death of Alan Leo, Carter ran Leo’s Astrological Lodge at the Theosophical Society, from 1920 to the 1952. He was first Principal of the Faculty of Astrological Studies, which he helped found in 1948. He edited The Astrologer’s Quarterly from 1926 until 1959. During his lifetime, most of his books were published by the Theosphical Society.

The Astrology of Accidents

123 pages | Paperback | Theosophical Publishing House, 1978

This book is divided into two broad sections. In the first, Carter compiles raw sign and house placements of Sun, Moon and planets, along with the angular separation of pairs of planets, to determine which planets, in which signs, in which houses, and which specific angles, produce the most accidents overall. The results are surprising.

In the second section, Carter analyzes specific accidents for common traits. Sixteen different classes of accidents are analyzed, among them drowning, gunshots, burns, falls, and railway accidents. While the number of individual cases were limited, Carter was able to determine critical degree areas.

This book was first published in 1932.

C.E.O. Carter (1887 – 1968) was the most outstanding British astrologer of the 20th century. After the death of Alan Leo, Carter ran Leo’s Astrological Lodge at the Theosophical Society, from 1920 to the 1952. He was first Principal of the Faculty of Astrological Studies, which he helped found in 1948. He edited The Astrologer’s Quarterly from 1926 until 1959. Carter’s books, penetrating & full of unique insights, are ideal for intermediate & advanced astrologers. They are, in fact, virtually in a class by themselves. Instead of a book on synastry, or forecasting, or horary or elections, Carter’s books are organic wholes. Instead of treating aspects in one chapter, signs in another, and planets in a third, Carter shows how individual astrological factors combine to create living, breathing people. For example, Carter tells us that a cardinal grand cross has one sort of effect if it falls in succedent houses, quite another if it falls angular. It is this constant interplay of factors, and Carter’s brilliant, lucid exposition, that makes his books so precious.
