Book Description

15 Aug 2006
Astrology has been open to criticism through a large part of its long history. In this groundbreaking book Bernadette Brady gives new insights in the intensity of these criticisms by placing astrology into its initial setting, its original world of ancient creation myths linked to the great creative void. Modern chaos theory has now rediscovered this void and Brady maps astrology to chaos theory to produce "chaotic astrology". The result is an insight into fate, freewill and the nature of astrology itself implying that it is neither a science nor a religion, and suggests instead that astrology is an instrument of chaos, a fertile and pragmatic tool for understanding the patterns of life. Original and insightful as ever, Brady navigates the reader through a breath-taking journey which can change forever the way one views the world.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Fragments 30 Oct 2006
Format:Paperback
Bernadette Brady is one of the most intelligent and interesting astrologers around today. This book sees her investigating the potential for chaos & complexity theory to serve as an explanatory context for astrology. The book doesn't provide a complete explanation, but it does include many great points about astrological theory and practice. (This is the short version - for more detail see my review on skyscript.co.uk) So I've deducted a star because this book doesn't cover all the ground you might expect it to; but on the plus side, there is a wealth of thought-provoking material here.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not entirely original 26 Aug 2006
Format:Paperback
I'm very happy to see astrology being discussed in the light of Chaos Theory, but this work is not entirely original as the author claims. The ideas promoted here, including those to do with astrology, chaos, fate and freewill, have been in circulation for some years and do not originate with the author; many have been previously published on the internet and in the NCGR Journal Spring 1999, for example. Please give credit where credit is due.

5.0 out of 5 stars Astrology, a place in chaos 9 Nov 2006
By Silvia Roquebert - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
It is a whole different view and perspective of all our thinking about life, the world and the collective ideas we have lived upon... an unusual but logical and interesting way of thinking!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Challenge your perceptions 15 April 2011
By Julie Camery - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Science vs. spirituality are ways of looking at Astrology or defining it. This book doesn't take either side yet in a way it takes both. It is a way to think about it as well as by doing so perhaps change in ones thinking. If you are the type of person who questions the why of events- and wants even more of a reason than a definition, here's a good one for you. The book challenges you to look at Cosmos and Chaos side by side. I particularly like how strange attractor is explained, and the edge of chaos. Really interesting to read and re read.

5.0 out of 5 stars finally a workable paradigm for astrology 15 Feb 2008
By Gerald Baron - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've been studying and practicing astrology for close to 40 years. Astrology a place in chaos presents a workable paradigm for the practice of astrology. Astrologers no longer have to get into debates about whether or not astrology is scientific. We no longer need to borrow from psychology or statistics to validate our craft
