Written as a unification of Eastern and Western approaches, Astrology by Moonlight presents a fresh look at the Moon and how its eight phases interact with every sign and planetary body. Tara Aal and Aswin Subramanyan help you get more in touch with yourself and the cycles of nature through a deep exploration of the Moon's phases.
This groundbreaking book takes you beyond the static chart analysis of signs, houses, and aspects. You'll learn how to make the most of each Moon phase's energy, such as starting a project during the New Moon and letting go of the old during the Balsamic Moon. Beginners and experienced astrologers will find compelling psychological and spiritual insights.
"Astrology by Moonlight proves today's astrology can be penetratingly accurate, widely accessible and filled with genuine wisdom. The root power of the book derives from a comprehensive and cross-cultural explanation of the astrological Moon on which any astrologer or astrolyte would be foolish not to take notes. This deep analysis is then impressively applied to the Moon's phases with each planet. This is truly a book for our times in that it addresses each of us as complex embodiments of the flow of consciousness rather than as products of a frozen birth chart."—Adam Gainsburg, founder of Soulsign Astrology
"Tara Aal and Aswin Subramanyan meld the principles of Western evolutionary astrology and the centrality of the Moon in Jyotish, the Hindu system of astrology, to produce a fresh understanding of lunar symbolism in personal development. Grounding their work in Dane Rudhyar's pioneering insights into the importance of the lunation cycle in chart interpretation, Tara and Aswin extend Rudhyar's thinking from the Moon's cycle with respect to the Sun, to the lunar cycle in relation to the seven visible and three modern planets, that is, from Mercury out to Pluto. The result is a novel and thought-provoking treatise which expands our understanding of the role of the Moon as a symbol in human psychology and astrological predictive work. East truly meets West in this volume, and it is well worth reading and contemplation."—Anthony Louis, author of Horary Astrology
"Insightful and compelling, Astrology by Moonlight takes a deeper look at the Moon and its relationship to and with the other planets. This thorough and thought-provoking book is a powerful collaboration between two astrologers who come from different astrological traditions yet create a synergy and resonance that opens doors to both the heart and the mind. Get ready to explore new territory by joining these two fine astrologers as they traverse the rich undercurrents that exist when you delve into how each planet connects to the Moon through the phases. Not only will it expand your astrological knowledge, it will expand your awareness."—Lesley Francis, professional astrologer, intuitive, and facilitator
