Summary
"In this easy to read book, Ken Bowser presents the basics of sidereal astrology from the viewpoint of a Western astrologer. Both astrologers and students of the science will appreciate the clear and helpful delineation of the planets, signs, houses, and aspects as presented in the sidereal chart. Ken also examines the forty-five planet combinations, looking at each in depth and presenting the unique characteristics each represents. All of these principles are illustrated with examples that serve as a guide for interpretation. Also included are three appendices: historical information, the origin of the exaltations, and the tropical-sidereal debate. An Introduction to Western Sidereal Astrology is a modest title for this excellent book, which provides a basic overview of sidereal astrology as it has developed in the West since the rediscovery of the ancient Babylonian sidereal zodiac at the end of the nineteenth century. Arising out of forty years of practice with sidereal astrology, this book is a gift to the world, representing the reemergence in our time of an astrology based upon the actual positions of the stars themselves and offering insightful interpretations of the stellar script as it comes to expression in the horoscope. - Robert Powell Ph. D., author of History of the Zodiac and many other works, and co-author of the recently published book The Astrological Revolution. With An Introduction to Western Sidereal Astrology, Ken Bowser has produced a valuable contribution to a literature that is both scholarly and practical. His careful, well-resourced explanations of the Babylonian origination of the zodiac (fixed to the celestial sphere and not their equinoxes) and its reintroduction into modern astrology, are a must-read for both students and professionals. On the practical side, he shows astrologers who want to try out the sidereal zodiac how to use it in everyday work. His outstanding planet combinations, which are independent of the zodiac, can be used by anyone and everyone who wants to master the art of astrology.--Ken Irving, Editor, American Astrology, Horoscope Guide Bowser skillfully and eloquently leads the reader through a tour of the complex issues at the heart of the zodiac issue with a level of clarity that can only be conveyed by someone who has attained a deep and comprehensive understanding of his subject. Ken Bowser is incontrovertibly qualified to write the book of this title, and he has chosen his moment well. Deborah Houlding, Editor, The Traditional Astrologer and skyscript.co.uk"--Amazon.com
