Predictive Astrology: A Practical Guide

What happens next? That's what everybody wants to know, and astrology has been providing answers to that question for centuries. But astrologers are only as good as their methods, and incomplete methods give an incomplete picture.

That's where progressions come in. When used in conjunction with the other predictive tools in the astrologer's kit, progressions provide a fresh set of insights into future trends and help complete the picture...

a good one to have

I bought 6 books on predictive astrology total. So far this is my favorite for sure.

An invaluable day-to-day book

This book is for the reader who is well grounded in basic astrology. It describes progressions, which are various ways of moving the planets ahead (or backwards) to show current and future development.I have seen only a few books on progressions, and Christine Shaw's book is at the top of my list for the counseling astrologer. Christine is an Australian astrologer who has had her own astrology school, and has lectured in Australia and New Zealand. Excellent astrology seems to come out of Australia, and Predictive Astrology is no exception.Robert Blaschke's books on progressions are extensive and thorough, and give more precise instructions for accurate timing. But Christine's book is easy to use, and sufficient for day-to-day work. I would turn to Robert's books after familiarity with using Christine's book.Christine not only knows her astrology well; she is able to convey her knowledge in a dynamic and practical fashion. The book includes a lengthy and rich discussion of progressions in general. Christine uses personal research as her raw material, and her discussion is grounded in real circumstances, thus bringing progressions down to earth. The bulk of the book describes specific planetary progressed aspects, from the progressed chart to the natal chart, and within the progressed chart. Christine talks primarily about secondary progressions, which follow the basic formula of one year in the life of the person (or event) equals one day in the ephemeris. However, a progression is a progression, and similar dynamics will operate in any type of progression. She also includes progressions into houses, and stationing progressions.Christine stresses the importance of the natal chart. Progressions do not correlate with developments unless they are promised in the natal chart, and the way a particular progression works depends on the natal disposition of the respective planets. This is why a thorough grounding in astrology is necessary before moving on to more complex interpretation. If you know natal astrology well, the rest is in fact easy because the same principles apply. A planet is a planet, a sign is a sign, and a house is a house. Let us look at a major progression for GW Bush: his Cancer Sun progressed into Virgo, and joining his natal Virgo Mars. This progression came into orb two months ago, and will last for two years.First, looking briefly at his natal Mars in Virgo: This is an analytical and fix-it Mars. It also makes for nervousness and irritability. Mars semi-sextiles its dispositor, Mercury in Leo, on GW's Ascendant. (Christine discusses the importance of minor aspects.) Mercury in turn has a partile conjunction to Pluto in Leo. This shows the potential for using that Mars for power-mongering and bullying. (Readers, aren't you glad I don't go through this with you regularly? And this is just the beginning of setting the foundation of this progression!)Here are some excerpts about Sun-Mars Progressed Aspects from Christine's book:"This

Progressions Plusss

Christine Shaw's, Predictive Astrology, is not only a well-written and understandable guide, it is thorough and comprehensive for the intermediate level astrology student. Although the book does not really teach the reader how to "predict the future," it does guide the reader in finding the signposts for the possibilities that are out there for all to see. An excellent addition to any student forecaster's library. Crisp, clean and thoughtful.

wonderful and down to earth approach. A must read

I was glad to have read this wonderful book about progressions from Christine Shaw. Very down to earth, practical and full of true and proven methods and delineations. You will find a lot of information and rules from the own experience of the author. No theoretical approach but from real situations. Even experienced astrologers will find useful information in it. It's one of the best books ever published about progressions.

One the few good reads on Solar Arc's I have found

If you are looking to learn Solar Arcs...this is the book. Christine did a wonderous job in the layout and writing of this masterpiece. With everything from progressions to transits and secondaries and so on and so forth. I can't praise this one enough.Now I would like to comment I don't like predictive astrology and I don't use the methods she teaches for that purpose. I say this because I think the title might scare some people off.
