Astrology, The Sacred Science A Spiritual Perspective by Joan Hodgson
This is a book about the destiny of man: about his descent from universal spirit into a human body; about the purpose of his many incarnations on earth; and about the Christing of man, by which he returns to God-consciousness.
The first part describes the cycles of life on earth and the great cycle of the Cosmos, and also shows how the zodiacal influences govern the development of the individual human form and personality.
The second part is a meditation on the soul lessons of each of the Sun-signs for the individual they affect.
There follows an important section on the seven rays of unfoldment, on human development in relation to them, and how far they correspond with the influences of the Sun, the Moon and the planets.
The final chapter is a visionary account of humanity in each of the great 2000-year ages, including the Aquarian Age that is just beginning, and the ages following it.
Astrology, The Sacred Science breaks new ground for trained astrologers but its simple terms make it an excellent introduction to astrology for any student of spiritual truth.
