If you are interested in understanding more about your true self, the purpose of life and your spiritual path, Esoteric Astrology is the book for you. You will be guided into a deeper dimension of astrology and the spiritual laws behind all life, for example the law of reincarnation and karma. There is a great difference between esoteric astrology that interprets the horoscope from the viewpoint of the soul, and traditional astrology that often is preoccupied with outer events and the desires and reactions of the outer self. An esoteric astrologer looks for the purpose of the soul, and the inner causes behind what happens to you in life. What are your talents and limitations, so that you can make use of and increase your good sides and eliminate or limit the bad habits.
The book is written in a simple language, it is a beginner’s guide to astrology. You will need no previous knowledge about astrology to read this book. This book is meant for anyone who is interested in spirituality and astrology. But it is also recommended for you who have studied astrology and wish to add a spiritual dimension to the subject. This book includes many important areas, such as: human relations, how to cast a horoscope, diseases, the purpose of life, and an esoteric interpretation of the signs.
The book helps you to understand more about yourself. But to this is added astrology for humanity and nations, how astrological energies are influencing and are determinative for society. From the perspective of a spiritual background, this is indeed an entirely new way of looking at our civilization.
Astrology can be divided into two main schools. The traditional exoteric astrology (such as is often found in magazines) usually places emphases on outer occurrences and events, fortune-telling and so on -- for example that you will travel, have a romance or receive some money. Exoteric astrology is mainly concerned with the “outer man” and with various events in life that occur around him. The second school is esoteric astrology, which deals with the inner man. Esoteric astrology is concerned with the purposes of the soul and the development of the individual, so that he can be of greater use in his service to humanity. The objective of esoteric astrology is to help man to understand the purpose and meaning with his life, and to reveal the talents and limitations he has. It tries to help man to understand himself and his relations to his environment. It also emphases the importance of karma and reincarnation -- the view that life is a school and that he has something to learn in every incarnation so that he can grow. Esoteric astrology is concerned with the growth of consciousness, how man discovers and learns to control all important aspects of his existence, and how he can make best use of the various gifts that are to be found in each sign. Since esoteric astrology deals with energies and how they are sent out and received, the best description of astrology is probably the science of relations.
A Gemini is often motivated to investigate the world by her insatiable curiosity. She is interested in practically everything that comes her way. This promotes the development of her natural versatility and her ability to quickly grasp new ideas. The spirit of discovery and curiosity are the motivating forces that lead a Gemini to devote her time to the great lessons that are to be found in this sign -- communication and thought.
Communication implies relations to other people, but it can also refer to an inner communication, a communication within your own soul. It is therefore your task to create a link between your soul and your outer self. These two must be in harmony and mutual understanding, and you must learn to fuse them into a single unit. Versatility and flexibility are the great gifts bestowed upon those strongly influenced by the energies of Gemini in their horoscopes. However, if these gifts are not used with wisdom they can result in a kind of dull superficiality, and in an inability to integrate a mass of perceived external details into an inner, organic whole.
The communication that is characteristic for a mature Gemini is a direct relation from heart to heart.
