In this intriguing exploration into the human condition, Clare Martin uses the polarity of the zodiac signs to investigate what astrology and personality theory can offer each other. Systems theorists have identified between six and eight character styles which appear to describe very accurately, and deepen our understanding of, the tension of the many dualities and polarities in the natal chart. It is here that astrological and psychological approaches can find common ground. A knowledge of personality theory can enhance, enrich and deepen our understanding of the dynamic relationship themes which exist on the astrological axes, and, as such, can be usefully integrated into astrological practice.
Copious examples from history, literature and the film world show how this fascinating combination works in practice, with the cast of Love Actually taking centre stage in the grand finale. Suitable for anyone interested in the way we develop, and for astrologers of all levels or none at all.
