Every astrological library should own this treasure. A great value, with much packed into its pages, "Alive and Well With Uranus" is written in an original, attention-grabbing manner. It contains good, basic material on the planets and houses---all seen from the viewpoint of the sky god, Uranus, when he's visiting each of them. I was entertained by the humorous and down-to-earth style of writing, but was also left intellectually stimulated enough to see each planet and house in a different light.
I particularly took to heart the author's advice (among his many practical tips for capitalizing on one's own personal Uranian transit) about staying conscious when working with Outer-Planet transits---see Chapter One. He encourages us to take advantage of potentially creative solutions. Chapter Two gets down to the nuts and bolts of "how" and "why" these "cosmic messenger" transits work (especially see "a Transiting Planet's Role").
When you read this book, explore the first four chapters in order. Plus, in the Introduction, you will enjoy the mythology and learn how well it symbolizes the astrological energy we know as Uranus (see especially "The Moral of the Story"). Part One is aptly named: "Wake Up and Smell the Freedom", which is one of the main messages of Uranus. Part Two describes Uranus' transits to all the planets and houses in detail. This material is nicely organized using catchy subheadings.
Finally, at the end is a nice, summary chapter, short but succinct, that assumes you have come through your Uranian transits "alive and well" and have accrued the benefits thereof. It thus addresses the newer, freer, individualized Uranian you---with your altered consciousness and your more optimistic view of planet Earth and the Universe. Altogether, this book is the perfect one to read right now, with Uranus transiting its own sign, Aquarius, and with the emerging 21st century at hand. Bil Tierney did a great job imparting his knowledge and wisdom in a Uranian way!
