An Introduction To AstroPsychology by Glenn Perry

This book will appeal equally to beginners and to the experienced astrologer. It represents a psychologically sophisticated astrology that goes beyond the usual approaches to the subject. All the parts are there—signs, planets, houses, aspects—but they are integrated with the latest developments in personality research and psychotherapy.

The result is an astrological model of consciousness that is solidly grounded in psychological theory. Motivation for behavior is related to the specific needs that the signs of the zodiac symbolize. Planets are described as psychological processes geared toward satisfying the needs of the signs they rule. The context, or setting, within which these processes play out are the houses. Finally, planetary aspects are described as core beliefs that relate to the individual's convictions about the relative likelihood of meeting basic needs. A central theme of the book is that the astrological chart depicts a personal narrative or life script. Each element of the chart symbolizes both an inner and an outer reality, the interaction of which fuels the process of soul development. By using the chart to gain insight into one's unique personal mythology, the individual is empowered to consciously participate in his or her own evolution.

If you are interested in how astrology can be used as a tool for self-discovery and self-transformation, this book should prove of interest. It is an essentially optimistic, self-affirming approach to spiritual growth that integrates astrology with the best that contemporary psychology has to offer.
