"AK&T" was the first
"real", non-pop astrology book I ever read, and to this day
it has maintained the pride of place in my astrological
bookshelf, along with a few worthy companions. It is evident
that this is Stephen Arroyo's labor of love, and the result
is a clear and comprehensive treatment of the astrological
factors in the birth chart that relate to karma and
self-transformation.

Mr. Arroyo tackles the difficult subject of karma head on
in the very first chapter. He helps us understand karma i

So insightful and blissfully informative, Stephen Arroyo is a "friend in my head." His writing is thorough and satisfyingly explanatory. Arroyo's understanding of the complexities of human nature and profundity of astrological knowledge is most impressive. Anyone interested in astrology must read this knowledge-filled book.

Just started reading this book ... and ... it is incredible. Explosive insights into the birth chart based on its karmic/transformative points. Seriously good stuff for the practitioner/counselor and laymen.

my favorite book on astrology yet .

Arroyo is a master, clearly and throughly presenting his understanding of saturn in all the different aspects. Still, in my opinion, the book is not necessarily user friendly. Searching for information between case studies, I found sometimes slightly less than irritating. I appreciate the information but I would have appreciated less case study and more straight info. On the other hand, this is the second time I have read the book, so it was compelling enough to have me re-read it.

Very in depth and valuable exploration of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto in the context of the personal birth chart. Good introduction to Secondary Progressions. A lot of nice cross referencing of other astrologers and sources that are helpful for determining some further reading. A dense read at times that requires focus which is why it took a year and a highlighter for me to give it a thorough read but well worth it and I would def read more by this author who has a warm, positive style.

Love this book. The author is sophisticated in his description of the psychological, spiritual, and energetic complexities of Saturn and the planets beyond. Highly recommend - not the typical astrological categorical trite stuff.

Recommends it for: anyone interested in understanding astrology on a deeper level
VERY informative. Deep and more spiritual than your average astrology book.

THE best book ever on the outer planets in all regards: The basic themes they represent in the birth chart, in aspect to inner planets, transits, progressions. He even has a chapter on fire houses and signs and for someone with both of these prominent in my chart (and a grand trine in both with Sun, Moon and Pluto), I understood why I had a such deep pull toward astrology, transformation the deeper spiritual meaning of life.

The title of the book I would think draws only those seriously intereste

韓良露的《生命歷程全占星》強調木土天海冥5顆慢速外行星Transits時對個人生命歷程的悠長影響力,Arroyo的這本書則更深入地,回歸到本命盤,站在人本立場闡述土星及3顆外行星如何發揮深不可測的業力,影響個人摸索靈性成長的道路。其作品文詞優雅,深富人性關懷,(儘管我排斥書中關於前世輪迴的業力說法)是一部不可多得的占星學經典。

這本書在台出版一年有餘,我和本書的邂逅非常偶然,當時我深受本命盤金冥衝的挫折,和朋友進行了為時三日的長談,我們邊逛書店邊聊冥王星的暴烈本質如何在我內心產生難以克制的情緒力量,討論該在生命裡壓抑或釋放這股衝動,「轉化」是對話裡的關鍵字,所以我很順手地從架上拿起這本書,沒想到Arroyo早在字裡行間為我們三日來的討論寫下完整的註解。

wow. way over my head, but definitely insightful and thought-provoking. arroyo doesn't provide easily digestible examples, but instead discusses the principles and patterns behind the planetary aspects of Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto (apparently the planets associated with karma? i'm obviously a beginner).

i'll have to go back to it in a few years.

This is one of those books where I found myself nodding on almost every page because he was talking about me, or someone close to me. It goes deep into the outer planets and their transits. One gains a much better understanding of karma, too, from this book.

This book is impossibly dense and therefore it's content is highly unapproachable. Arroyo seems to think that long, tortured sentences using the passive voice convey intelligent content. Nope!

Deep meanings of planets in natal astrology and how to think about transits and other dynamic factors in astrology from a process oriented point of view.
William Strasse
Another great book for getting into the "deeper" aspects of astrology. There is a lot to take in, so it might not be for those who have only a casual interest in astrology.
