This book brings to life a previously understated, yet crucial component of chart interpretation: the astrological crosses (the cardinal, fixed, and mutable aspects of the signs of the zodiac), or the modes or quadruplicities, as they have been more commonly known. The crosses are so important to chart interpretation that you will wonder how you were able to complete an astrological analysis without them.
Astrological Crosses explores the strengths, qualities and unique challenges of each cross, using real-life examples from the author’s consulting practice. Planetary configurations and transits will take on a whole new meaning as you incorporate the crosses in your interpretations. Whether a beginner or a veteran in the world of astrology, your perception of the signs will undoubtedly be enriched.
Previously published as Astrological Crosses in Relationships (2002, Llewellyn Worldwide) this edition contains essentially the same content, with a new layout.
