Astrology: Its Techniques and Ethics is an incredibly complete book on astrology and its various integral parts. Discussion on astrology being an empirical science and how the initiates hid their wisdom from humanity. A selection of chapters includes: laws of Karma and reincarnation; fate and free will; horoscope; twelve signs of the zodiac; influence of the Decanates on body and character; health and disease; proportions in the cosmos in nature and art; embryology and heredity; astrology and medicine, in addition to many, many others.
Many of those who take up the study of astrology complain of the great obscurity of the books of study, of the many technical terms, incomprehensible to the laity, and especially of the difficulties of the calculations, which latter are unsurmountable for those who have no knowledge of mathematics and cosmology.
I will, therefore, try to remove these obstacles, by using foreign names as little as possible, and by simplifying the calculations in such a manner that any one of average intellect and with a knowledge of ordinary arithmetic, may be able to follow this study without much difficulty. Further, I will try to be as brief and clear as possible, omitting all superfluous digressions, and yet giving a fairly complete survey of that branch of Astrology which is called Genethliacal Astrology, that which applies to nativity or birth.
This branch is by far the most important and therefore counts most students. Astrology has the advantage over other occult sciences in that it asks no “belief” of the student, but only investigation. Any one who takes up the study of his own birth-horoscope, with some assiduity, will be able to demonstrate by numerous facts, looked up by himself, that Astrology is true, is founded on facts in nature.
To this end it is positively necessary to know the exact time of one’s birth, and as, for the last half century, the hour of birth had to be filled in at the registry , one might go there for inquiry. Next you will have to obtain an ephemeris for the year in which you were born; you may then cast your own horoscope and study it. You will find how extremely interesting this study is!
