Humans have been meditating on the Moon since the beginning of our time on earth. As long as there has been anything we could call astrology, it has been central to all theories of celestial influence. But why do astrologers pay so little attention to its phases?
In these pages, Steven Forrest, bestselling author of The Inner Sky, shows how we have been blinded to the lunar phases by a set of cultural attitudes now drifting into extinction. He demonstrates that our Celtic ancestors held the key to understanding lunar phase and he skillfully, clearly, and eloquently turns the key in that lock for us. Along the way, he also presents the latest research on the powerful but little used tools: the Out of Bounds Moon, lunar speed, and lunar parallax. You'll also find rare descriptions of the progressed lunation cycle, planetary phase angles and nodal phase. Discover the soul of the moon in this lucid explanation of the Moon's place in modern humanistic astrological counseling.
