Second part of the book is amazing. A must read for anyone who already has basis knowledge in astrology.

This is an insightful read for anyone interested in the psychological implications and applications of astrology.

I found the writing style (more so in the second half of the book) very lucid and engaging, with a lot of information packed into the concise classifications and descriptions of energy types and their applications/manifestations.

I especially liked the bit about the houses and the elements. I think the keywords used by Arroyo are very efficient and meaningful.

What I was expecting more

Fascinating read on Astrology from an energetic perspective. Although the first part of the book makes a compelling argument on the relevance and importance of Astrology as an empirical, yet archetypal system to understand human psyche and the development of different personality types, it was on the second half of the book that I resonated most with Arroyo’s ideas.

Elements Air, Earth, Fire and Water as viewed through the natal charts astrological composition. Especially interesting and gave me pause for thought was the idea the the Element of the Acendent is the strongest instinctual drive/balencer/opposition to the Sun element. I'm a Capricorn Sun element earth with a Librian Asc. element air. I have been struggling with a huge sense of ungroundedness all my life and quite simply went 'ahhh' when studying this book.
