Product Description


Ancient astrology has a host of techniques that were, until recently, forgotten. The task of classical astrology today is two-fold: to recover these techniques and to evaluate and understand them within a modern context. Lee Lehman has studied the practices of the old masters, including William Lily, Ptolemy and Aristotle. She presents both techniques and the logic behind them in an attempt to radically improve all astrology, regardless of whether the practitioner chooses to adopt a classical or neo-classical approach.

HASH(0x985c1f78) out of 5 stars Classical Astrology for Modern Living 1 Feb. 2010
By Doug Velez - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is not for beginners or people who are new to Astrology. If you are already conversant in the subject and want to broaden your knowledge of more classical methods of interpretation, then this is a good book. The author has a maddening habit of using rather technical terms like "Sidereal Zodiac" without pausing to explain what they mean. I bought this book in hopes I could read her other book, "Essential Dignities" where I found you're supposed to already know key concepts because she doesn't give any explanation of them whatsoever. But there's useful stuff in here on Astrological topics that are not very much in use nowadays, but probably should be. The book is a bit arcane, but for a serious student of Astrology, I would have to recommend it.
