Author Introduction: "The usual astrological text-books, old and new, are filled with data, the memorizing of which insures knowledge. But wisdom is an elusive factor. It can hardly be taught. It may partly be transferred from living person to living person. Yet, because it is based on the full understanding of total situations and of experiences lived without any reservations, it can only be acquired through actual living, through pain, through the discharge of responsibilities, through the courageous and honest putting forth of the whole of oneself in whatever experience is seen as significant. Nevertheless, knowledge can be geared to the attainment of wisdom. And in this work, my aim is to make a presentation of the basic concepts and facts used in modern astrology which is as simple and clear as possible without losing sight of the ultimate goal of this kind of astrology: the development of human understanding. Each chapter of this book is thus conceived as outlining a basic step toward astrological wisdom. If the reader is not yet acquainted with the ordinary methods used in astrology, what is written should provide him with a sound basis for further and more detailed study. If the reader is thoroughly familiar with astrological techniques, I trust that he will find here a challenge to further thinking and the stimulation to seek always for deeper human values while using the astrological tools."
