2.0 out of 5 stars in some respects an imbalanced approach to the houses, 22 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Houses: Temples of the Sky (Paperback)
I was disappointed by this book, largely because of its over-traditional approach to the subject. It is I think overly unflattering about the meaning of the sixth and the twelfth houses in particular, stressing their negative attributes. These houses relate to the signs of Virgo (relates to harvest, attention to health, detail and work) and Pisces (relates to spirituality, imagination and the arts) respectively which like all the signs have both positive and negative in them (on a similar note one thinks of the traditional scapegoating of Scorpio as the real baddy of the zodiac). It was if though the author wished you could cut out some large aspect of life and humanity not be left wanting in some particular way. I wouldn't go as far as the oft used Australian adage - its all good, but perhaps all the archetypes in astrology are necessary.

Nigel says:
Virgo is co-significator of the 6th, the Author clearly states this on page 76. There is a lengthy explanation of exactly WHY the Signs DO NOT define the houses. If you find this "unflattering" and choose to ignore it, that's your prerogative, however your review is "imbalanced" if you do. Malefic Mars joys in the 6th, the 6th is Cadent, which means falling, like cadaver ie dead. It's below the Horizon, Occidental and with no aspect to the Ascendant. It's name is 'Mala Fortuna', the house of sickness. None of that screams positive! If you're content to say that there's good and bad in everything, you'd have to say that when a person gets sick, they at least might finally be forced to change their unhealthy lifestyle. Assuming they recover, that would be a positive, it would prevent them becoming ill again. Becoming ill however, that's not a good thing.
