This book is for those who want to move beyond a static interpretation of their natal chart to an understanding of how planetary cycles affect such things as one's career, finances, and opportunities. In an easy-to-use format, John Townley discusses the principles of dynamic astrology and shows how the cycles of the planets and important degrees in your chart play a continuing role in your life.
Topics covered include diurnal, monthly, and yearly cycles; the Mars energy cycle; the Jupiter productivity and opportunity cycle; the Saturn career cycle; the wild-card cycles of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto; and the daily movements of important degrees as they cross the ascendant and culminate at the midheaven. He explains how to analyze and synthesize all of the cycles to learn about the progress of your career; how to know who your friends and "enemies" are; and when the best times are for such things as job interviews and asking for a raise.
New, revised edition (former title: Astrological Life Cycles).
Presents a new approach to the foundation of astrology and discusses how planetary cycles can be understood through systems theory.
