Dr. Greene uses basic astrological concepts symbolically and practically, in a framework of Jungian psychology, to show the ways in which people relate to one another on both conscious and unconscious levels. The book is an original, advanced, information-packed, provocative and well-organized work. There are no structures of 'normal' and 'abnormal' in its pages, but there ...more

As well, she has an excellent way of intertwining Jungian psychology, fairy tales, and mythology. I would expand ...more
A very different approach to astrological integration. Signs are dealt with by contrast to their opposing polarities; so Earth & Fire are discussed together, as are Air & Water.

It also gives a very general vision over Astrology, explaining some concepts very clearly, for instance the Eras (Pisces, Aquarius etc.)
