    Very clearly written. Great astrology book

    This is a small but information-packed book offering a lot of things to a lot of astrologers. For beginners, it sets out a very clear account of what the houses signify and why. Being one of the few books on the subject to place its focus on conventional philosophy, that¿s one reason to see this as an essential text for students. But the book is more than that. Houlding went against the grain of modern suggestions as to where each house collected its meanings, illustrating how weakly those suggestions are based. She leads back to a far more relevant and meaningful philosophy. This was understood by traditional astrologers and implicit in their writings, but it has been forgotten by many modern astrologers. Through this we see why each house means what it does, and that there is more to this theme than seeing houses as areas where we tuck certain people or experiences. I applaud Houlding¿s point that the houses don¿t just signify, they also have a great impact upon the way that planets are able to express themselves in a general sense, giving astrologers scope for research that doesn't dependant on proving which house rules aunt Bessie¿s budgie. After all, why does the 3rd house have to be the place that I keep my sister? There must be more to it than that. The book is concise but elegantly written and with such attention to detail that it¿s worth reading more than once. It will be appreciated by astrologers who like to think for themselves and understand what they are doing, and not just settle for some given-rule. Thankfully Houlding is not inventing some new dynamic theory for the sake of having something original to say. She manages that simply by arguing for something that¿s obvious when you stop and think about it, and pretty essential really.
