Some three decades ago, in an attempt to produce a series of symbols that would be relevant to contemporary students of astrology, Marc Edmund Jones and a clairvoyant friend formulated the so-called Sabian symbols.

Parts of THE ASTROLOGICAL MANDALA - the Sabian symbols - will be useful to astrologers; most of the book will be useful to philosophers who are theosophically inclined. It’s amazing to me how hard Rudhyar works, sometimes, to make everything in life fit into his system of cycles and symbols. His search for meaning and archetypes in everything puts a filter between the viewer and the actuality. I don't think this is a reread book, at least not for me.
