    Comment: These 13 essays cover the period from 1972 (Hand's first published astrological essay) to 1982, when this volume was first published. As he writes in the Introduction, at the time he was steeped in Robert Graves (author of I Claudius), Joseph Campbell & C.G. Jung. These are the writings of a bright young kid, eager to share his thoughts & experiences. To get an idea what Rob Hand got up to later, see our Arhat page.

THE SPINDLE OF MEANING - Ronald Harvey, $22.50
A rationalization of astrology, showing how the various pieces can be built up in a logical fashion. Harvey starts with Ernst Cassirer's idea of great circles of meridian & horizon & shows how these develop, first into angles, then houses, then elements, followed by hemispheres, quadrants, signs, aspects & finally time. This is another of many attempts to deduce in stages what was originally a whole concept & as such will always be somewhat lacking. 204 pages including glossary, bibliography and index. Urania Trust, hardcover.

Contents: New tricks for an old and cosmic craft; Can we talk?; The supermoon alignment; A new angle on the angles; Esoteric empiricism; Certain aspects of the centaur planet. 126 page including bibliography and index. AFA, paper.
