Book Description

A practical and thorough treatment on the meanings of all aspects of planetary and house rulerships, Rulers of the Horoscope: Finding Your Way Through the Labyrinth is the definitive sourcebook on this topic. Alan Oken masterfully guides you through the labyrinth of delineating and synthesizing the complex interchange between rulers of houses and their signs and the nature of the houses they occupy and rule. He defines and describes derivative houses, planetary and house rulerships, dispositorships, mutual reception and the compatibility and nature of importance of their placement in the horoscope.

The astrological charts of well-known people are illustrated with detailed descriptions of planetary relationships, their positive and negative aspects, and the traditional and modern interpretation of the houses.

Alan Oken's in-depth exploration of the ruler for each of the twelve houses and the rulers of the rising sign is an invaluable tool for astrology students and teachers alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Web of Rulerships 23 Jun. 2001
By Barbara Blackie - Published on
The intricate interweaving of planetary Rulerships is at the secret heart of every chart. Far from being just an 'old school' concern, this web of relationships is an essential starting point for any analysis. If you are checking your transits without this knowledge, you are missing everything! From the first chapter, 'Peeling the Onion', to the last, you will find your confidence growing as you clutch the tablets of Rulership Hierarchies. Study the indicating factors for addiction, androgyny, foibles and flights of fancy. Delineate career, love, family relationship and travel questions with confidence. If you have been avoiding learning the material presented in this book, delay no longer. Rich with relevant example charts of the famous, infamous, and everyday people, peppered with insights, and laden with clearly defined 'cookbook' style examples to aid you, this book is a gem. You'll want to keep it close at hand until you have absorbed all its secrets.

4.0 out of 5 stars good introduction to rulerships 28 Sept. 2000
By Luc De Jaeger - Published on
This is a useful and interesting book about rulerships. I find the delineations quite good, though sometimes too short and incomplete. I'm not sure if these delineations are based on massive research or whether they are more theoretically written down. Anyway if you want to know something about the importance of the final dispositor, receptions etc.. you should read the book because these items are very well explained in some short chapters. These chapters I find the best.

2.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but incomplete 1 April 2001
By A Customer - Published on
This is a well-enough written book, mainly for intermediate astrologers and beyond. The content helps deepen a person's understanding of horoscope analysis beyond planets in houses and signs. However, due to editorial or author oversight, some of the sections are incomplete, and an inquiry to the author and editor have not been answered. It does expand on books such as the "Only Way" series which have this same kind of information in a more concise format, but still, one wishes that the art of editing were as rigorous as in former times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rulers of the Horoscope - a Treasure for any astrological library 2 Sept. 2009
By Lamis B. Faris - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have been teaching astrology for about nine years now and have had the very darndest time explaining to my students how to use rulers of signs to help describe each sign and its house placement articulately - in plain English. This book does just that! It is required reading for any teacher and student.

By Deanna I. Sava - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased Rulers of the Horoscope, as well as two other Alan Okan astrology books (he has several of them). They are really easy to understand and very informative. I highly recommend this and any of Alan Oken's books.
