Sequence Two: The Zodiac and Man

Authored by Dr. Oskar Adler
Edited by Amy Shapiro M. Ed.
Translated by Zdenka Orenstein

The 2nd Sequence of The Testament of Astrology builds on the 1st, Adler's foundation of Esoteric Astrology. Amy Shapiro studied, taught and edited this material for years, polishing with greatest care. Dr. Adler offers a lifetime of insights that illumine astrology on a rare level, combining esoteric and exoteric understanding, blending psychology, mysticism and the mundane. Astrologers will gain training of a Masters' Degree quality, to help guide clients with deeper understanding. The following excerpts give you an idea of the caliber of Dr. Adler perceptions as they pertain to the theme of Sequence Two - the Zodiac.

You will learn about ...

"... The realm of man's being rooted in Earth, the test of his individual being against the resistance of the earth-matter by the significance of the distribution of the Zodiac-sections, and planets above and below the horizon, for the individual's development on Earth: the cast-shadow of the Zodiacal man on Earth, and the summary of tasks of his earthly work, whose fruit he incorporates into his wandering "ego" -- man's fate, in its widest meaning."
" ... The astrologer aims to seize that human nucleus, swinging freely between Earth and the world of the stars, to study him, his terrestrial shadow and the heavenly light into whose realm he has stepped. The houses are the place for man's Self-probation; where he gains the powers of self-knowledge, of correcting and extending his development. From such knowledge, a blessing can issue forth. Its power will not be exhausted as long as belief in the divinity of the true human core does not vanish."
"The Zodiac and its impulses for human development, prototypes of character formation, concerning the general un-dimmed human image, correspond to the twelve sections of the Zodiac and the development of twelve types of people. The planetary world in connection with the Zodiac forms the total possibilities for an individual: whether favorably or unfavorably."
This Sequence prepares the way for Sequences 3 to 7, also available.
