Book Description

28 July 2008
Medical astrology is a fascinating subject, yet undoubtedly a rather challenging one. In this work however, the author attempts to ease the path towards greater understanding of traditional astrological principles regarding health, as well as introducing some new experiential ideas. These have been developed through her long pratice in this field. What can sometimes be helpful in studying a chart is to understand the psychological underlay to medical conditions inherent in the cosmic pattern. The many charts included in this work from the author's own casebook as well as the charts of some public figures both current and historical, suggest guidelines for interpretation. This book is recommended for anyone who is interested in exploring medical astrology in greater depth, and perhaps including some aspects of it in their own astrological work. Whilst medical astrology cannot take the place of advice from orthodox professionals, it can often throw light on prevailing problems.

By Deb
The book is mainly aimed at students and practitioners of astrology who are interested in learning more about the historical partnership of astrology and medicine, and who may wish to include some aspect of this in their own chart-work. Although it is admitted that the astrological approach is not intended to displace orthodox medical advice in any way, the author argues that, as a complimentary system, the astrological scrutiny of disease can often throw an illuminating light on the role of the psyche in matters of health and disease. Most astrologers will need no persuasion of the viewpoint that astrology can help to clarify the psychological underlay of physical illness, even if it is not specifically used to try to name the offending organ or particular symptom.

The author, Wanda Sellar, wisely sees her role as one in which she acts as a guide and intermediary between the depth and complexity of the subject matter, and the student's need to understand the general overview, as well as the particular application of certain techniques. Wanda is, of course, well known in the British astrological scene as the editor of the AA's Astrology & Medicine Newsletter, a position she has held for the past 12 years. She has over 25 years experience working in astrology and the complimentary/holistic fields, with previously published books including The Consultation Chart, and two books on aromatherapy.

The book is rooted in traditional philosophy and technique, although the author (a qualified horary practitioner) is no fundamentalist, and only recommends the techniques that she believes work best.

Well written and I met Wanda at a talk she was giving and her knowledge in this area is useful and interesting.
Decumbiture is an interesting area to discover as to what was going on in one's life when sickness occurred. Wanda is good at giving examples to help.

4.0 out of 5 stars FINALLY ! 26 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was SO PLEASED with this book. I have learned Astrology but had not ventured into the world of Medical Delineation. It is a complicated subject made very clear by this author. It is not a subject to learn in one sitting, but the study of it has been made clear and very easy to understand and follow. I am impressed.
