In fact, as soon as it came in the mail, my assistant took it home for one night. Three weeks later, I had to threaten him to get it back. That’s got to tell you something!”

BruceScofieldPrinciples of Practical Natal Astrology is unique in that it is the first book I’ve seen that teaches beginning astrology with an emphasis on the classical Essential Dignities. Prospective students of astrology could start their study of astrology with just this book and they will enter the subject with the basics, plus a solid knowledge of how the traditional system worked.”

JoePolisePrinciples of Practical Natal Astrology is more than your average introduction to horoscope interpretation. This is a groundbreaking textbook that helps the student to develop the skills intrinsic to becoming a talented astrologer. What makes this work so unique is how Kevin integrates the language of Classical Astrology, creatively restated in modern terminology, with the new discipline of Consciousness Theory. In a well-organized, enthusiastic manner, Kevin helps to bring astrological education into the 21st century by showing how we live out our charts on specific levels of consciousness.”

You’ve read the books, you’ve maybe even taken a course—and you still find synthesizing all that information tough going. Well, Kevin Burk’s got just what you need to take yourself from the ranks of cookbook astrologer to talented, thinking astrologer. His system, based on traditional astrology, will take you through the chart from beginning to end, smoothly and with confidence. This is a system that works in practice as well as in theory. You may not consider yourself a talented astrologer now, but no matter what your level, if you work with this system, your chances of becoming a talented astrologer are good. This is probably one of the best advanced beginner books out there in any system. I definitely recommend it!”
