Product Description

Product Description

Every astrologer needs a good understanding of the astrological houses, and Houses of the Horoscope: An Introduction provides a practical and valuable sourcebook.

Alan Oken masterfully guides you through the concepts of the meanings and the nature of the twelve astrological houses. He provides a core description of the twelve areas of life delineated by the astrological house system. The energy of each of the planets in the houses tells us where on Earth that planet's energy lands and what area of our life it highlights. He gives a masterful analysis of how the astrological signs on the house cusps and the planets ruling the signs on houses express the nature of each house.

The planets, signs, and houses in a chart represent the "whats", "hows", and "wheres", of your life. The planets tell us "what" kind of energy is at work. The signs indicate "how" this energy is working. But it is the houses that reveals "where" the events, people, and places in your life may be found. Alan Oken provides an expert guide to the understanding of the astrological houses and their interaction with these other elements of the horoscope.

3.0 out of 5 stars somewhat disappointed 7 Jan 2012
By netherworld - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a good, maybe even "great" book for beginners to astrology. The disappointment for me came by way of very high expectations,after having read the author's masterpiece from several years ago, "Soul-Centered Astrology", which contained everything about Esoteric Astrology that one could think of, except for explainig in any detail the esoteric meaning of the "houses". So I expected that this book would be much more esoterically oriented, and to my mind, it was pretty much the "usual stuff" that can be found in any book dealing with the meaning of the houses. I'm not saying don't buy it, just don't expect any great insights to explode into your mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solidly recommended for any seeking a deeper understanding of astrology 8 Feb 2010
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Astrology can be a difficult thing to understand. "Houses of the Horoscope: An Introduction" delves into the finer points of astrology, the house system, and how this applies to astrological practice. These houses apply to many aspects of the human experience, and Alan Oken does well in giving readers a comprehensive overview on the finer points of the art. "Houses of the Horoscope" is solidly recommended for any seeking a deeper understanding of astrology.
