Some of the material incorporated in this book has been printed in the form of articles in Dell's HOROSCOPE magazine, Popular Library's astrology magazines (such as ZODIAC and AQUARIAN ASTROLOGY), and Llewellyn's ASTROLOGY NOW newspaper. We appreciate, therefore, the editors' permission to bring it forth in this entirely revised and enlarged presentation.

I would like to express special gratitude to Pauline Hutson, April Fletcher, and Barbara McEnerney for their typing, proofreading, and constructive suggestions. If any errors remain in the book, they can be attributed to the author's negligence.

I am also indebted to Betty Spry for allowing the use of her beautiful collage on the cover of the book, to Pacia Ryneal for her artistic talents, and to Kathleen Arroyo for endless help and patience in her design and layout of the book.

I wish to express my thanks also to Jim Feil, Dr. Pierre Pan-netier, and Dr. Randolph Stone for helping me to gain some degree of insight into the workings of the four elements, and also to the many friends and students who have encouraged my writing and teaching.

Astrology is assured recognition from psychology, without further restriction, because astrology represents the summation of all psychological knowledge of antiquity.

— C.G. Jung, Commentary on The Secret of the Golden Flower

The task of science is not merely to identify the changing structural pattern in everything, but to see it as simple. Science starts with the assumption which is always present, though it may be unconscious, may be forgotten, or may sometimes even be denied: There exists a simple order in nature; a simple way of representing experience is possible; the task of science is to discover it.
