3.0 out of 5 stars Some useful information about aspects, 31 Oct. 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Dynamics of Aspect Analysis: New Perceptions in Astrology (Paperback)
This is not a book that will tell you, for instance, what a square between Mars and Mercury might mean; if you want that kind of specificity, you should buy a book like Karen Hamaker-Zondag's "Aspects and Personality" instead. That said, there's quite a bit of interest here: The discussions of aspect configurations are more detailed than I've seen elsewhere, dealing in depth with different sorts of T-squares and grand trines while also treating some rarer combinations. The chapters on unaspected and retrograde planets are also very helpful. Perhaps the best thing about this book is its discussion of dissociate (out-of-sign) aspects; these are a problem that many treatments gloss over, but Tierney deals with them at length in a plausible way. I have a few gripes: Tierney seems to derive the basic meaning of an aspect from the degree that forms that aspect with the beginning of the sign of Aries; that seems like an unhelpful and in some cases misleading way of looking at it. He gives quite a bit of space to discussions of "upper" and "lower" aspects, which doesn't seem to me to be a useful distinction. If Amazon.Com let me, I would give this book three and half stars. It's not the first book on aspects I would recommend, but it is useful and I'm glad I bought it.
