The Lunation Cycle Dane Rudhyar

This book contains some very powerful and original ideas about the process of our personal growth through life. I did not give it 5 stars because at times it can be dense and a bit difficult to read. However, it is well worth slogging through those difficult parts. When you reach the (third) eye opening and mind illuminating parts about the Lunation cycle and the relationship of the Moon to the Sun and how each stage reflects a very specific part of our growth it

An authoritative and in-depth examination of the astrological meaning of the lunar phases. Rudhyar is at pains to explain that these are not merely a matter of the Moon going through phases, but that they represent the cyclic unfoldment of the way Sun and Moon interact. Each lunation represents a cycle in which the animating and fecundating power of the Sun charges the Moon with energy, which the Moon in turn causes to manifest on Earth in various forms. The phase of the Moon at our birth tells ...more

This book was interesting, but I think too detailed for someone who knows little about astrology like myself.

Bu kitaba daha fazla not verebilirdim ama feminist tarafım biraz geri adım attırdı. O kısımları atlarsam, okurken keyif aldım. Bilgilendirici ve faydalı bir kitap. Ancak kitabın içindeki bazı bölümlerde tarihsel klasik astrolojik bilgilerden ziyade, yazarın kendi algı ve kurgusu üzerine oturttuğu bir çerçeve var diye düşündüm (daha çok yazarın Güneş ve Ay ilişkisini kadın-erkek ilişkisi çerçevesinde anlattığı bölümlerde).

Kitapta Ay fazları, şans noktası, aydınlanma noktası, ruh noktası

One of the greatest XX century astrologers, the book shows what is it the lunation cycle psychologically and how it can be used as a model, a pattern to apply to other couple of planets like Venus-Mars of Jupiter-Saturn. It is noteworthy that Rudhyar was a follower of Jung, in fact it could be said that he (being an Aries) reintroduced the study of mythology into astrology, the same as Jung did for Psychology, in fact Jung himself studied astrology and applied it!.

A comprehensive overview of the lunation cycle, and a descriptive walk through the lunar/solar relationship. I found the explanation of the progressed lunar cycle particularly helpful.

Essential book for those who want to understand how soli-lunar cycles and their rhythm affect us and our psychological unfolding throughout our life path. Very inspiring.
