Wisdom of the Stars: Astrology and Spiritual Biography (New)
by de la Houssaye, Leo
Publisher: Floris Books
Book ID: 9780863157998, 0863157998
People have been studying the effect of the stars on worldly events for over five thousand years, that is, since the time of ancient Egypt and Chaldea in Mesopotamia. However, the first horoscope for an individual, with place and time of birth, was recorded in 70 B.C. in Greece.
Leo de la Houssaye traces the development of astrology in human history, looking particularly at how human consciousness has changed in relation to star wisdom. He marvels at how quickly the ancient Greeks developed a system of interpretation for the horoscope: already by 150 ad, the basic elements were established which are still used today.
In the second part of the book, the author introduces a new element for astrology, the death chart, or the "spirit birth" chart. Whereas a standard birth chart is an image of what a person brings into the start of their life, a spirit birth chart is an image of the fruits of the life they have lived. De la Houssaye argues that this new chart is important for understanding personal spiritual biographies, and could have a significant impact on the practice of astrology.
