From page 308:

” In Figure 11 (on page 309), we have the astral portrait of that gifted student of mysticism, Helena P. Blavatsky, who founded the present Theosophical Society on this planet in the nineteenth century. The student will note the 13th degree of Cancer ascending symbolized as follows: – A caduceus between two moons – one crescent, the other gibbous. It denotes a person of extreme capacity in the pursuit of knowledge, a penetrating mind and retentive memory. The native will accomplish wonders in the pursuit of subtle sciences. The temper is changeful like the moon and subject to fits of hope and despondency of more or less rapid alternation. The native is likely to travel much and be subject to many changes, but the chief characteristics are versatility and aptitude in the gaining of knowledge. With the symbol of Hermes dominant in the nature, the native will be either a linguïst, doctor, or distinguished scholar. Hermes or Mercury was strong, being in Virgo. This degree succinctly and clearly defines her life and her excellent though not faultless work. A most noticeable satellitum is the Sun, Mars, Saturn and Mercury, all in the third house, that is mind. “

De twee aangezichten van het eeuwige

239 blz. | Paperback | Uitgeverij der Theosofische Vereniging in Nederland, 1979

Het waren vooral theosofen die in de beginperiode van de twintigste eeuw de astrologie van allerlei onzuiverheden bevrijdden en op een meer esoterische basis opbouwden (bijv. Carter, Thierens, Libra). Leendert Tijssen is een belangrijke exponent van deze stroming en verdient daarom alle aandacht.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

In dit boek worden de metafysische achtergronden van de astrologie gegeven vanuit de theosofie . Deze achtergronden geven een zeer duidelijk raamwerk waar vanuit ook de theosofische leringen bestudeerd kunnen worden en wel vooral De Geheime Leer van mevrouw Blavatsky. De besproken astrologische aspecten roepen direct het aspect van zelfkennis op; hèt startpunt van elke vorm van zelfrealisatie. Vanuit een esoterisch startpunt wordt aangegeven hoe de horoscoop geïnterpreteerd kan worden. Het geleerde kan dus direct in praktijk gebracht worden. Dit boek is niet een napraten van allerlei andere schrijvers; integendeel, de auteur heeft een groot aantal originele opvattingen. Astrologie werd door mevrouw Blavatsky als één van de zeven sleutels van de esoterische traditie beschouwd. In dit boek wordt duidelijk gemaakt op welke manier deze sleutel gebruikt kan worden.

Astrology Beyond Ego

By Tim Lyons.

188 Pages | A Quest Original, First Edition 1986 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835606120.

In this book, an attempt is made to look more closely at the basic, structural implications of astrology, at its foundations or philosophic base, by examining the fruit of the astrological tree, fruit which has proven itself healthy through actual life-giving application. But more particularly, this Volume examines the inner core of the fruit – the pit, or pith, or seeds – for the core is a microcosm of the tree itself, containing all its potentials.

On another level, this work attempts to address the larger question: ‘What does Astrology imply about the human condition’? Astrological symbology is discussed from the standpoint of its inherent Perennial Wisdom. This Wisdom is not lacking in practical value, but this value cannot be appropiated by ego. In the end, the Perennial Wisdom of Astrology is that it directs us, through the inner logic of its symbols, to see the necessity of spiritual growth for human beings. The sum and substance of the hard line is that the solidity of ego is an illusion, an illusion which is in the end only a limitation that obscures our vision, our freedom, and our ability to relate fully with others.

From Chapter 8 – ‘The Illusionairy Prison; Astrology, Freedom and Ego ‘ (p. 170):

‘” The world has often been referred to as a prison house. Astrology may at first seem threatening, because it demonstrates the structure of the prison, thus bringing our fears to the surface. But in the end it can actually show us the inner structure of the prison house, thus allowing us to escape. It can also show us that the walls of the prison are not solid, but permeable, no more solid than the person they surround. In this way, astrological knowledge can be liberating. “

The Guide to Horoscope Interpretation

By Marc Edmund Jones (1888 – 1980).

195 Pages | Third Quest printing 1982| Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 083560442X.

‘ Splash! Bundle! Splay! Seesaw! Bucket! Bowl! Locomotive! What have these words with Astrology’?

Marc Edmund Jones, author of eight major published works of astrological significance, a member of the American Federation of Astrologers, called by many the ‘dean of American astrologers’, quickly recognized the need for a work on planetary patterns in perceiving the ‘whole view’ of a horoscope. ‘Splash! Bundle! Splay!’ etc. are words that most accurately represent these different patterns. The Guide to Horoscope Interpretation presents the author’s many original thoughts on this facet of astrology. Twenty-eight horoscopes are delineated, and basic points of interpretation are provided for forty-four others.

From the Opening Chapter – ‘What is a Horoscope’? (p. ix):

” For those unfamiliair with the technicalities, a brief introduction may be helpful. The earth has two primary motions in the heavens, or its rotation on its axis once a day and its journey around its orbit annually. Two two great circles so established are brought together to make the horoscopic wheel. Each of them is divided into twelve equal parts represented in the diagram by pie-shaped areas of indication. The ones created by the faster or daily motion are the houses, and they are commonly represented by printed lines in the horoscope. The ones similarly marked off in the earth’s orbit, commonly known as the Zodiac, are the familiair signs beginning with Aries and running through Pisces. Because the two great circles do not lie in the same heavenly plane, they lean away from each other and this fact permits the fundamental charting of variety in human individuality. And then the further fact that the houses are marked off in their circle from the position in the heavens of the terrestrial horizon at birth enormously increases the possibilities of horoscopic variations. Because it would be confusing to show the areas of indication of both circles by actual lines of boundary in the horoscopic wheels, astrologers note the corresponding zodiacal sign and degree at the beginning of each house from the horizon at the left and as the signs rise clockwise. ”

The Heavens Declare – Astrological Ages and the Evolution of Consciousness

By Alice O. Howell.

281 Pages | Copyright 1990, second edition 2006 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 9780835608350.

‘The implications are staggering! Why don’t more people know about these things!’ So wonders Alice O. Howell, one of the most profound astrologers of our time and an authority on C.G. Jung’s depth psychology. Her view of astrology as symbolic of archetypical processes provides a tool for the deep healing of the psyche. It also presents a bold synthesis of history, religions, mythology, and Jung’s concept of the collective unconscious. Supported by irrefutable archaeological evidence, Howell traces the evolution of consciousness through five of the great astronomical Ages of the past ten thousand years. She explains the logic of the signs first, so that we can then marvel at the synchronicities.

Her findings imply a resolution of the Piscean dichotomy of faith and reason, that has reigned for two millennia. (Consider the current movement to marry physics and spirituality). This leads her to speculate on humanity’s future tasks and traps. ‘As foretold, it’s not the world that’s ending‘, she laughs. ‘It’s just the Age. And here comes the next!’. Simply written as letters to a friend and analyst, The Heavens Declare offers warm advice as it inspires us to experience one flash of insight after another.

From Chapter 1 – ‘The Ring of Quiddity’ (p. 13):

” Each star
is a kiss
I would give you –
should others
wake to a starless night
you would be lying
in my arms
covered with light. “

Symbolic Directions in Modern Astrology

By Charles E.O. Carter (1887 – 1968).

88 Pages | First published in 1929, second edition 1946, reprinted in 1984 | Softcover | The Theosophical Publishing House, London | ISBN: 722951450.

In a sense of course, all Astrology is in part astronomical, for astronomy furnishes at least some of the symbols, which we use in the most abstract system, to wit, the Sun, Moon, and planets, and to some extent the Houses and the Zodiac, which begin from astronomical datum-points. But when we desire to progress the natus or radical figure and study its changes as indicative of the development of a human life, an acute difference may arise as between an astronomical method and a symbolic one. In both cases it is true that the measure of time is symbolic, be it a day to a year or the passage of a degree of right ascension over the meridian to a year. But in the primary and secondary systems, the movements of the planets are not symbolic but actual, whether denominated real or apparent. In the symbolic methods the movement is a mere arbitrary assumption, used for the sake of practical convenience.

From the Introduction (p. 11):

” In time, simplicity and completeness may be combined in one. Thus, we may look forward to the construction of a complete and harmonious system of Symbolic Directing, founded on basic but simple principles. However, it is well to recollect that the material plane can never perfectly reflect the Ideal Realm, and, therefore, such a system may require supplementing for practical purposes. This may well be the function of the astronomical methods, such as secondaries, transits and lunations. “

Essays on the Foundations of Astrology

By Charles Carter

179 pages | Paperback | Theosophical Publishing House, 1978 ISBN 0722951329

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.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

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.

An Encyclopaedia of Psychological Astrology

By Charles E.O. Carter (1887 – 1968).

199 Pages | First published in 1924, fourth edition in 1954, reprinted | Softcover | The Theosophical Publishing House, London | ISBN: 722950691.

Together with:


This work is an attempt to produce a useful astrological Encyclopaedia of Character, and, as far as data permit, of Disease. That part of astrological study, which comes under the term ‘destiny’ (i.e. financial success, marriage etc.) I have omitted, because it is fully discussed in an increasing number of sound text-books. Naturally, in writing a book of this description, which is original in design, and to a large extent, in matter, the author has been strictly limited by data. Properly there can be no other limit to an ‘Encyclopaedia’ of any sort: so long as one’s studies continue. so long can one go on collecting and collating evidence. It is therefore the author’s hope, should this work appear to win the approval of the astrological world, at a later date to bring out a fresh recension, amplified by the results of further investigations and cleansed, if I may say so, by the purgatorial fires of criticism, which a book of this kind, in which almost every statement is fair game for discussion, is sure to arouse.

From the ‘Special Note’ (p. 11):

” Of late years it has been especially borne home to me that we are apt to exaggerate the difference between so-called ‘good’ and ‘bad’ aspects. Both in compiling cases for my book Astrological Aspects and in examining horoscopes for the present work, I have noticed that the same bodies will, in a class of similar cases, occur again and again in aspect, but that the nature of the aspect is far from constant. Further, in making lists of persons with two bodies in ‘good’ aspect and of other persons with the same bodies in ‘bad’ aspect, it was often difficult to see that the former had been any more fortunate in the matters involved than those in the second category, and, in other cases, those with ‘bad’ aspects seemed no worse off than those, who had ‘good’ ones. This statement may call forth the protests of many, but I invite the incredulous to collect a few dozen cases and study them, as I have done. “

The Astrology Of Accidents – Investigations and Research

By C.E.O. Carter.

123 Pages | First published in 1932, reprinted in 1978 | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, London | ISBN: 722950594.

One of the most important areas in looking at a horoscope is interpreting from the aspects indications of possible accidents; and the subject is made all the more difficult by defining what constitutes an accident. The author defines it as ‘a bodily mishap occasioned without intent either on the part of the sufferer or the agent (if any) inflicting it’. There are various gradations of accidents, and in the research for this book, one of the primary considerations was to discover if possible any factors that are common to all serious accidents. Here with the evidence of statistics are 168 cases from Britain and the United States, which will assist astrologers in examining charts.

From the ‘Preliminary Considerations’ (p. 17):

” Our first investigations must be directed to discover, it possible, any factors that are common to all serious accidents, or at least occur more frequently than mere probability would explain. My total collection, at the time of ‘closing the lists’ for tables, comprised 168 cases. These may be roughly divided as follows: asphyxiation (5), drowning (14), burns (19), scalds (9), gunshots (4), blows (21), crushings (9), wounds and cuts (7), vehicular (22), falls (32), machinery (5), railway (3), poisons (1), explosions (4), miscellaneous (10) and animals (3). Some of this book was written before all of these had come to hand, hence the above figures may not exactly agree with others given in Part Two, which also contains cases that came in after the tables had been finished. “

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.

Astrology – A Handbook for Beginners (Study Guide)

By Louise C. Bromley.

64 Pages | Copyright 1998 by The Theosophical Society in America | A4 Study Course | Quest Books, U.S.A. | No ISBN.

From the Publisher’s Foreword:

Astrology is an ancient and complex symbolic system linking human temperament, behavior. and events to the position of the heavenly bodies. On one level we may think of astrology as a symbolic system, in which human experiences are represented by the intricate interactions of the stars and planets. On another level we may think of it as exemplifying the concept of the universe as an orderly place, in which everything is connected with, influences, and is influenced by everything else.

If we think of astrology as expressing the order of the universe, we may ask whether the relative position of the planets can be causes for earthly conditions, or whether some other principle may be involved. Do the stars cause earthly events? Or is the connection coincidental, though meaningful? We can consider both of those alternatives.

How could the position of the planets, which are so far away, cause changes in my life? What connection could there be? Causal relationships can be so complicated that they look like random chance, like chaos. If astrology is a science of causes connecting the stars with the earth, perhaps the causes are like that.
