Filling a gap in the body of existing astrological literature on Progressions, this book contains the only metaphysical framework ever published for understanding secondary, tertiary and minor progressions. Equally rich in both technique and theory, this book will be a reference standard for generations.

From the Foreword by Robert Hand:
This book on progressions is quite accessible to astrological readers of many levels, but it is not a beginner's book. It does not just give the basics of progressions. It goes beyond that to provide a practical and theoretical foundation for integrating the various methods of progressions into a single body of method...Blaschke's theory is that these three types of progression derive their usefulness from the following relationships. Secondaries are the result of the interaction of the Earth and the Sun (day and year) which in turn correlate to Matter and Spirit. Tertiaries are the result of the interaction of the Earth and the Moon (day and month) which correlate to Matter and Soul. And finally minors are the result of the interaction of the Moon and the Sun (month and year) which correlate to Soul and Spirit...This is technically a very rich book and one which teaches a definite method which would not be difficult to apply in practice...this book should advance the study of progressions in astrology on both the practical and theoretical level and for this we owe Robert Blaschke a vote of thanks.

Review:

"Blaschke is an excellent teaching writer. He knows exactly how to introduce his material in small, precisely measured increments, cite his authorities with clarity and brevity, and guide the reader through virtually frustration free assimilation and mastery of progression theory and application. After reading this book and working within the guidelines presented, many of us might begin to wonder why we had not learned these techniques sooner. The answer is that there probably weren't enough teachers or writers of this man's caliber available when we first began the study and practice of astrology." -- Joan Star, Geocosmic Magazine

"I was completely delighted with this book and his findings and I love his metaphysical and spiritual approach to the subject. Robert has covered all the elements that are needed in the understanding and use of progressions, making it easy for any student or seasoned astrologer to incorporate them into their work...I highly recommend this book. It should be in every astrologer's library. This book is a very pleasing and enlightening read!" -- Lynda Hill, FAA Journal- Australia

"In this interesting and useful book Robert Blaschke describes how he combines secondaries, tertiaries and minors - the three progression cycles of a day for a year, a day for a lunation and a lunation for a year - into a single approach for prediction and counseling purposes...I can recommend this book. The ideas and the writing are fresh and stimulating. There is much in it that can aid the astrologer in his or her practice." -- Ken Gillman, Considerations Journal

"There are not many books on the market on progressions. This is the only one that I know of that discusses progressions from a philosophical and metaphysical perspective. This is a highly original work, one that doesn't rehash what is found elsewhere but rather builds on it. What you will find in this book is a very well-thought-out framework for linking secondary, tertiary, and minor progressions. Blaschke believes that secondary progressions correspond to the physical body, tertiaries to the emotional body, and minor aspects to the mental body...definitely worth checking out." -- Donna Van Toen, NCGR memberletter

From the Publisher:

shares reviewers' comments on Volume I - Progressions:
"What it comes down to is that Blaschke’s book is strong enough at several different levels—practical, theoretical, esoteric—that one can find good information in it ... I have a feeling that this book, due to its comprehensive treatment of the subject, could easily become a classic." - Kenneth Irving, American Astrology, October 1999

"If you are a serious astrology student who is looking for something beyond the white bread and butter of much of today's astrology, I would highly recommend you read - and apply - this new book on a classic method of astrological forecasting. It's powerful stuff." - Raymond Merriman, The International Astrologer, Volume XXVIII, No. 1

"Robert P. Blaschke has written quite a remarkable book. This is a book that sets out to educate the serious student and to provide the experienced astrologer with an opportunity to revisit his or her own understanding of progressions. His book is a valuable contribution to the astrological community." - Hamish Saunders, AFI Journal (New Zealand), Issue # 17

"Blaschke gives his reader a complete overhaul of the techniques of progressions. Blaschke, a Scorpio, has dug deep and dug long to present a most interesting and novel type of book - for which the progressive astrologer should thank him. He has taken progressed techniques and brought them out of the era of Edwardian speculations and quaint musings. The author is telling us ‘Here's a technique - it works for me like this, now see if you can use it!’ - more one cannot ask of an astrology book." - Robin Heath, AA Journal (UK), Summer 1999

"This is the perfect book if you are a practicing astrologer using secondary progressions and maybe dabbling with tertiary and minor progressions...As a practicing astrologer, you are undoubtedly using some of the techniques that the author includes in his book; I am quite sure that even many advanced astrologers have not applied the range and depth of techniques that Robert shares in this book. I highly recommend it." - Mary Plumb, The Mountain Astrologer, Aug/Sept 1999

"There are not many books on the market on progressions. This is the only one that I know of that discusses progressions from a philosophical and metaphysical perspective. This is a highly original work, one that doesn't rehash what is found elsewhere but rather builds on it.

Blaschke believes that secondary progressions correspond to the physical body, tertiaries to the emotional body, and minor aspects to the mental body...definitely worth checking out." - Donna Van Toen, NCGR memberletter, June/July 1999

The answer is that there probably weren’t enough teachers or writers of this man’s caliber available when we first began the study and practice of astrology." - Joan Star, Geocosmic Magazine, Winter 2000

"In this interesting and useful book Robert Blaschke describes how he combines secondaries, tertiaries and minors - the three progression cycles of a day for a year, a day for a lunation and a lunation for a year - into a single approach for prediction and counseling purposes...I can recommend this book. The ideas and the writing are fresh and stimulating. There is much in it that can aid the astrologer in his or her practice." - Ken Gillman, Considerations Journal, Volume XIV, No. 3

"Blaschke has condensed into one small book the basic essence of what progressions are all about. And we are not talking exclusively about secondary progressions, but tertiaries and minors as well. Blaschke's Progression Theory is simplicity at its finest, with an elegance that brings true understanding to the cyclical unfolding of the potentials contained within the natal chart. Cycles are contained within each cycle. Themes are repeated on different levels throughout one's lifetime. This we all understand, yet Blaschke, through some very obvious metaphysical connections (obvious, mind you, when they are pointed out) is able to link and entwine our physical, mental and emotional realities into a life span that both develops and folds back on itself on different planes of consciousness." - Scott Whitters, FAA Journal (Australia), March 2000
