Book Description

July 1999
A rabbi reveals the profound astrological tradition to be found in the Kabbalah, Bible, Talmud, and Midrash. *A thorough explanation of the most sophisticated system of astrology known. *More than 30 tables and charts for doing readings and creating horoscopes.

The ancient Hebrews developed the richest and most sophisticated system of astrology known in the Western world, but this practice has been almost completely forgotten. Now Joel Dobin, an ordained rabbi and practicing astrologer, brings to light the wealth of astrological information in the Kabbalah, Bible, Talmud, and Midrash, revealing a profound tradition as valuable today as it was millennia ago. Key to this astrological system is the Kabbalah--the Jewish mystery tradition--in which the sacred Tree of Life links the influences of the twelve zodiacal constellations and seven planets to specific letters of the Hebrew alphabet, creating a unique method for constructing horoscopes. Analyses of the zodiac according to the rulerships of the sons of Jacob, the importance of solar and lunar directions and masculine and feminine influences, and the paradigm-shifting nature of the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction (next scheduled for 2001) are all explored for their impact on global and personal destiny. More than 30 tables and charts put all the information needed for doing astrological readings at your fingertips.

Product Description

Review

A facinating undertaking by a modern-day astrologer who is probably closer to the spirit of his forebears than his fellow rabbis. . . . What comes across from the beginning is knowledge of material accumulated over millenia and absorbed into every cell. -- Astrology Now

A mammoth effort that succeeds in showing why we must remember the mother science that reveals to us the plans of the heavens and the will of God. Astrologers can find great value in this book, especially in weighing and using techniques of ancient time. -- Astrology Guide

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Symbolism, Poor or Confused Calculations 28 Jan 2001
By TarotGirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The author clearly has a thorough familiarity with midrashic thought and style, and his symbolic connections are thought provoking and useful. I especially enjoyed his discussion of how numerous and how pervasively subtle astrological references are in the original Hebrew of the Bible, despite the common modern belief/fixation that the Bible generally condemns astrology. He also offers intriguing attributions of the constellations from the standpoint of the 12 ancient tribes. There's lots of nifty stuff you just don't see in the usual astrological texts. I like this book very much for the historically rich worldview it presents.
__An aside for technically minded astrologers only:__ Unfortunately, almost every time the author refers to an actual timed event, he mistates the facts. His errors are most noticeable when he discusses the Jupiter/Saturn conjunctions which occur approximately every 19-20 years. He either gets the year wrong or he places it in the wrong sign, or something. For one example of many, he claims that the May 2000 conjunction was in 23 degrees of Gemini, when in fact it took place at 23-24 degrees of Taurus. Since he devotes several pages to Jupiter/Saturn conjunctions and their importance to history, this is no small error.
The author claims to be using the constellations themselves rather than the signs in this system, which implies that he's using a sidereal zodiac, but a few pages later he talks about how 0 degrees of Aries is defined as occurring at the Vernal Equinox, which undoes his claim. Plus, even in a sideral zodiac the dates don't match his statements because his ayanamsha is sometimes apparently 30 degrees, sometimes apparently some other figure. By this I mean sometimes the dates or sign placements are okay, and other times not. He does not define or even mention any ayanamsha, though he does spend a bit of time talking about precession. Go figure, literally.
Still, despite this caveat about his calculations, I really do like this book and am pleased to own it. The stories are terrific.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hermetic in many places, rairly Jewish 7 Feb 2001
By Michael Dinowitz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The author shows some knowledge of Jewish sources in the book but seems to be totally ignorant of many others. One very telling quote is when he's talking about pairs in reference to the hour of mars on tuesday and he says "...will recognise that the Talmud considered even numbers to be unfortunate." If he could read the commentary that went along with the section he would have referenced the information on Zugos and where/why they are important. The amount of things that he left out that are elementary are a testiment to why I give this book such a low rating. Of course his Hermetic talk on Kabbalah rather than going to the Jewish sources is just another nail in the coffin.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Rehash of the Rabbi's Previous Work 18 July 2013
By John Dickey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I loved The Astrological Secrets of the Hebrew Sages: To Rule Both Day and Night and To rule both day and night: Astrology in the Bible, Midrash, and Talmud. I found them to be a significant books for convincing myself that astrology had merit and meaning. In this book I was hoping to find even more, but I cannot give it 5 stars because it is mostly a 3rd reprint of previously published material by this author with only a small addition of some charts and details. I would suggest one read only this book, rather than the previous publications. One will not find enough new material to justify the new book alone; however, if you have not read the rabbi's previous works, then by all means this book is excellent, thorough and an excellent resource.
