Beginner Horoscope Maker and Reader by
This book was originally published by The Aries Press, Chicago, Illinois, in 1943 as two volumes: Beginner's Horoscope Maker and Beginner's Horoscope Reader. Both were authored by Elbert Benjamine.
Part One, the “Maker” was written at a time when astrological charts were calculated by hand using, what at the time, was simple mathematics. Today computers are faster and more accurate than performing the tedious hand-calculations. However, for anyone seeking a thorough understanding of aspects and the finer nuances of chart interpretation, it can be very helpful to understand the math and Beginning Horoscope Maker is helpful in this regard.
Part Two, the “Reader” is a simplified system for interpreting a chart. Its brief interpretations are helpful for gaining insight into a birth chart and for learning how to synthesize the various components of a chart. Interpreting the symbols on a chart is a daunting task for the beginning student. The “Reader” helps bridge the chasm between the beginner and the proficient
In 1972 the two volumes were combined into one book, Beginner's Horoscope Maker & Reader.
The 1972 version is here presented in its entirety.
Stellar Treatment works on the principle that each one of us functions in two environments: our physical body lives on the physical or outer plane and our soul or thought-built structure operates on the astral or inner plane. The word astral means “pertaining to a star,” and one’s astrological chart is a map of one’s soul structure or astral body.
The Hermetic Axiom, “As Above, So Below” infers that the structures of the physical body are a reflection of the soul structures as mapped in the chart of birth. A careful analysis of the birth chart can reveal the discords in the soul and help ascertain the physical diseases towards which one is predisposed.
This classic book, first published in 1945, describes how habitual thinking, as mapped by the natal chart and reinforced by progressed aspects, influences the endocrine system, and thus the rest of the physical body. By applying the suggested Thought-Cell Treatments, one can work on healing the inner causes of disease.
With Statistical Analysis of Three Thousand Birth Charts and Thirty Vocations
By Elbert Benjamine
(aka C. C. Zain)
One of life’s great challenges is choosing a career through which the individual can find both personal satisfaction and prosperity. Astrological vocational selection involves identifying the natural aptitudes outlined in the chart of birth, and expressing them through those areas of the chart that map the most favorable environments.
Using 30 of the most popular vocations, Elbert Benjamine analyzed 3,000 birth charts to determine the astrological constants operating for vocational selection. When combined with an understanding of your accumulated life experiences and the opportunities available through your environment, astrological vocational selection is an excellent way to develop your soul’s natural aptitudes, contribute better to Universal Welfare, and fulfill your role in God’s Great Plan.
Progressed Aspects of Standard Astrology is a great companion book to both Body Disease and Its Stellar Treatment and When and What Events Will Happen.
Although most Church of Light students have the advantage of the Horoscope computer program for calculating progressions, this volume is helpful for the motivated learner, who is eager to grasp the methods of calculating progressed aspects. By mapping the reinforcements made to major progressions by minor progressions the student and professional astrologer are better equipped to predict the timing of events.
Also included in this volume are Thought-Cell Treatments to help avoid accidents, heart trouble, nervous breakdowns and more.
First published in 1942, this is an excellent companion book to Body Disease and Its Stellar Treatment.
The Hermetic System of Astrology offers insights as to how astrology operates through an interrelationship between the astral and physical planes.
This Astro-Physical Matrix of the soul allows for healing to manifest through inner and outer plane treatments. While Body Disease and Its Stellar Treatment addresses the application of mental diet to heal the thought-built structures of the soul, Stellar Dietetics uses astrological diagnostics as a means of discovering what foods and nutrients are needed to heal the physical body.
