The Rudhyars live on through their unique writings/teachings.

Dane Rudhyar's legacy of metaphysical, insightful astrological work lives on! This offering is practical, irreplacable and timeless, even as its uses involve the understanding of time itself through the Sun/Moon relationship. All temporal existence holds its story via a birth time, an arising "self" which for a time lives and grows on this plane of existence, and then includes a release of the personality & soul from the very identity its own birth story describes. This cyclical mystery affects all of creation from the birth of an idea or nation-state, to the nuanced unfoldment of an individual human consciousness, as expressed via the natal & progressed horoscope. Leyla Rael Rudhyar also contributes to this understanding in her segment of the book. The Self further grows through the various stages of prescribed life events mirrored by interconnected cycles of increase and decrease. This knowledge is like a life-giving elixir for humankind, as we all need reflection and more accurate orientation of perception, to be free of our often self-imposed suffering, through narrow understanding and "wrong identification" as the body itself. The body/personality is just the beginning of our story. The personality/ego vehicle, is like a "skin-car", which will fall away when a particular phase of existence has fulfilled its life-story, however short or long, on this road of life. The Rudhyars remind us that our immortal soul is connected to all of life, so we can step back and view our challenges in the broader and deeper context of this larger unfolding cycle. In anchoring our understanding of our own (and our friend's, family members or client's) challenges to grow beyond the limits of egoic conditions, we gain an expanded viewpoint that naturally includes compassionate acceptance of each human's unique timing, tasks & talents. We are not what we appear to be in the superficial hold of current cultural projections. We are immortal souls in passage--ever growing and changing and becoming truer to our innate oneness with divine source. The Rudhyars demarcate these rites of passage using the solar-lunation cycles to orient and guide us as we grow through & observe the necessary states of existence we must experience fully to awaken to our truer nature. I love this book and highly recommend it to anyone curious about the timing of the unfolding events in their own or another's life/death process. Few books hold such treasures as these, and I am grateful that this material is still in print. I hope it continues as long as humans investigate the nature of existence and the challenges of daily life and true identity.

Personality Basics from the Master

First published under the title, "The Moon, the Cycles and Fortunes of Life", this book is a helpful addition to any astrology collection. The relationship of the sun and moon in one's chart is the very basis of one's personality. A valuable section is included on the Parts of Fortune and Spirit, with detailed information on their definitions. The Part of Fortune through the signs and houses is a good reference for the beginning or intermediate student, and the lunation phases are discussed in relation to the other planets. Discover how the moon is the "weaver" shuttling between the inner and outer planets of our solar system! Mr. Rudhyar uses the solar chart (sunrise) to explain the effects of the other planets upon the moon and upon one's creative expression and personal life. And just what is your "lunation birthday"? Find out in The Lunation Cycle, by one of the very best and innovative astrologers ever. Yep, I can highly recommend this book!

Ground-breaking, became a standard for astrological theory

This book is a basic introduction to the theory of astrological cycles. It is a basic reader for anyone who is interested in the new astrology called 'Humanistic Astrology'. The author's contributions to the theory and practice of astrology have resulted in astrology being updated to modern times by incorporating new concepts from analytical, depth and transpersonal psychology. The ancient concepts of 'square' and 'opposition' have been redefined as events that occur in every cycle--whose purpose is to build structures (relationships) from the new moon beginning to the full moon culmination and back again to the next new moon. By identifying the personality type that we are most readily understand emotionally, The Lunation Cycle provides guidance for the reader to reassess their horoscope in the light of concepts that empower one to validate their own individual, emotional perspective on life. It goes further to redefine the Part of Fortune and discusses the progressed lunation cycle.

One of the best book by Rudhyar

I don't know if lunation technique is popular in modern astrologers or not since I am just enjoying astrology for myself. But this technique Rudhyar reveals in this difinite work really works. Along with his another difinite work, "Astrological Mandala", this book will be a very good spiritual navigator for your life, I believe.
