Overview

This book is for those who want to move beyond a static interpretation of their natal chart to an understanding of how planetary cycles affect such things as one's career, finances, and opportunities. In an easy-to-use format, John Townley discusses the principles of dynamic astrology and shows how the cycles of the planets and important degrees in your chart play a continuing role in your life. 
Topics covered include diurnal, monthly, and yearly cycles; the Mars energy cycle; the Jupiter productivity and opportunity cycle; the Saturn career cycle; the wild-card cycles of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto; and the daily movements of important degrees as they cross the ascendant and culminate at the midheaven. He explains how to analyze and synthesize all of the cycles to learn about the progress of your career; how to know who your friends and "enemies" are; and when the best times are for such things as job interviews and asking for a raise. 

New, revised edition (former title: Astrological Life Cycles). 

Presents a new approach to the foundation of astrology and discusses how planetary cycles can be understood through systems theory.

Editorial Reviews

Dell Horoscope
"With admirable clarity, intelligence, and wit, Townley describes each of the major cycles and shows how to apply them to your own situation. The result is a book which easily qualifies as one of the better astrological career guides ever to see print."
Chris Lorenz
"So much of astrology nowadays is geared toward personal growth, love, and spiritual awareness, and precious little is devoted to the practical application of astrology to our everyday lives, and especially our careers. Townley's work breaks the mold of its solid advice and techniques to becoming more successful in the competitive professional world."

    J B Hunt is quoted as saying 'Millionaires don't use Astrology Billionaires do!'

    And the reason he said it is encapsulated in this wonderful book. Timing is EVERYTHING! So if you are interested in enhancing your career or any other aspect in your life... this book is definitely for you. You can have everything going for you, but if you lack timing... you will most likely lack success. At least SUCCESS on a DYNAMIC scale! Where on the scale of success do you intend to find yourself? John Townley's insightful perspectives can help you get wherever it is you seek to be. Whether or not you are 'into astrology' it is a wonderful reference tool for those seeking insights; from the career minded individual, the novice astrologer, or the professional astrologer. As a professional astrologer/teacher I can tell you that I wouldn't think of not having Townley's books in my library! I highly reccommend his books to all my friends and colleagues as well as my students. You can bet that I will be using this book in an upcoming class online at AOL, as only the best of the best are good enough for us.

    As an entrepreneur and Internet Service Expert, I wish I had had access to this book and it's content information earlier in my career! I might have been able to make some better choices and avoided a pit fall or two. :-) If you want to have optimal timing using planetary cycles for your professional life, I highly recommend this book for your information highway business skill sets!
