Astrology and the Authentic Self is a ground-breaking work by Demetra George, one of the most the respected authors in her field. This book provides a model for the practicing astrologer to analyze a client’s life purpose as indicated through the natal chart. It addresses significant concerns, such as relationship and vocation and provides methods for determining current timing movements. She gives the methods to communicate this complex information in a concise and professional manner within the context of an astrological counseling session. 

Ms. George provides an excellent introduction to the doctrines of ancient astrology concerning how to determine the condition of a planet and its capacity to be effective and produce favorable outcomes. She outlines how to follow these traditional guidelines, but interprets them within a modern context, adding the insights of more contemporary approaches. ***Read a review of Astrology and the Authentic Self on The Horoscopic Astrology Blog***

Asteroid Goddesses

Asteroid Goddesses: The Mythology, Psychology, and Astrology of the Re-emerging Feminine

This fully updated edition of a beloved classic shows how the discovery of the asteroids Ceres, Pallas Athena, Juno and Vesta coincided with the shift of woman’s role and power in society and symbolize the reactivation of the feminine principle. The inclusion of these four goddess named asteroids in chart analysis expand the scope for the expression of feminine energies beyond the Moon and Venus. The creating, supporting, nurturing aspect held by the goddess Ceres, the Universal Mother, embodies the principle of unconditional love. Pallas Athena is our Warrior Goddess, a woman in a man’s world, carrying the principle of creative intelligence. Vesta, the Goddess of Focus and Commitment is our High Priestess. Juno, the Queen of Heaven and Divine Consort, is our capacity for meaningful relationships. When prominent in our charts, their mythic biographies continue to live out in our lives and shape our experiences. The IBIS edition contains an ephemeris through 2050 and full delineations for each of these four asteroid goddesses in sign, house, and aspect.
