First written in 1953, and now integrated into Astrological work globally, Dr Jones includes in his ground-breaking comprehensive text, for each of the 360 degrees of the zodiac: the symbolical picture, an interpretation in present-day psychological significance, a keyword for use in quick or at sight analysis, the positive and negative influences, the formula to determine the relationship between these symbols, and illustrated with 1000 horoscopes of well-known people. Detailed explanations of their origin, use in the natal, mundane and rectification charts gives the reader an unparalleled opportunity to learn directly from the source that envisioned their profound effect in all types of astrological practice.
Staff Pick: "The Sabian Symbols offer a rich perspective into the some of the smallest details in astrology - the individual degrees of the zodiac. The symbols themselves were, fascinatingly, conceived by a clairvoyant named Elsie Wheeler over the course of 24 hours. Each degree of the zodiac was brought to her blind and in random order, so as to mitigate chance of bias or projection. The end result was an astonishingly concise, and curiously connected journey through the zodiac, detailing the path of enlightenment. Those looking to expand their insight into astrology without the use of convoluted mathematical techniques would do well to have this book in their library." - Cedric.
