Book Overview

The inner planets--Mercury, Venus, Mars--are the foundations of what psychology calls the ego, the sense of personal self. In this fourth volume in the Seminars in Psychological Astrology series, Liz Greene and Howard Sasportas discuss the value of the inner planets as they symbolize important aspects of personality. We are not trained to give value to our private needs, feelings, and qualities. Indeed, because of their intensely personal nature,...

Great Preliminary Book for defining the really personal planet of the Zodiac

This is a great introductory book for Professional and Beginning Astrologers Alike. I would suggest it for anyone who has even the very basic interest in Astrology. Very Well-written with some great exercises for learning about Astrology.

Insightful & Inspiring

My husband gave me this book from my wish list. I am very interested in astrology & have great respect for other works by Liz Greene. I cannot put this book down. And I absolutely must read the previous volumes. Then I will read this Vol 4 again! Because it is a transcription of a seminar there are references to the previous volumes, expecting the reader to have knowledge of what came before. Yet it is very informative on its own. Astrology claims we are primarily our sun-sign yet when dealing with personal issues it always seems the focus is on an outer planet's aspect to our inner planets. In isolation. Understanding how an individual's planets in sign, house & aspect are integrated is difficult because of seeming contradictions. By looking at these 3 planets as psychic components of the personality the authors add personality & character to the planets. My Ah-Ha moment was this statement by LG "One simple definition of Mars is that it is the fighting principle for the Sun, and in a sense the fighting principle for all the inner planets which lie within its orbit." I now have an image of a armored (or amour-ed) warrior defending the Queen (or King) filled w/ nuance of character flaws and strengths. Of course the planets are discussed in many other forms: mythology, current beliefs, audience participation and reference charts. The author's blending of the spiritual, the science of psychology, and the purely personal makes for a valuable resource in understanding and tolerance. The subtitle "Building Blocks of Personal Reality" is misleading as the work actually removes the block-concept and helped me to see a more cohesive personal whole. 3 down 9 to go.

detailed inner enlightenment

The book covered many details of understanding the inner planets, as well as giving basic groundwork for applying to one's own chart.

Vol 4 of the Seminars in Psychological Astrology

I am not going to comment this book, because I have only read the introduction of this book (I am reading Luminaries). Yet for your information, this book is the Volume 4 of the Seminars in Psychological Astrology series, by Liz Greene and Howard Sasportas. In this book the two great authors talk about the Mercury, Venus and Mars. If you like the first 3 volumes, definitely you would also like this one.
