ASTROLOGY as PATH to HIGHER CONSCIOUSNESS
“This valuable new treatment of astrology as a spiritual tool is anchored in Alice A. Bailey’s Esoteric Astrology, but that is only the starting point. A wide array of spiritual traditions are brought in to expand and illustrate…. Mr. Abraham brings together a large assemblage of occult and symbolic systems, and organizes them on an astrological framework This book is an excellent and practical text, and will be helpful to students at all levels.”
~Dr. John Cobb President, SCHOOL for ESOTERIC STUDIES Asheville, North Carolina.
“Astrology as Path to Higher Consciousness is by author Kurt Abraham, a long time student of the Ageless Wisdom. The book discusses the esoteric meaning hidden in each of the twelve signs of the zodiac and the lessons each sign confers as it seeks to condition the consciousness of the pilgrim on the way. These are conditioning energies and an understanding of their impact leads to knowing oneself. By extension, this understanding leads to right relationship, and an appreciation of the differences of archetypal types leads to wholeness and healing. He goes on to say that while the energies of consciousness are too elusive for the instruments of physical scientists to detect, these energies are not too elusive for the soul-sensitive mind to detect. In fact, he says, there is a need to work consciously with these energies as they seek to condition and move us forward in evolution. Both experienced astrologers and those just beginning to explore the esoteric significance of the zodiac will appreciate this book.”
