The Psychology of Astro*Carto*Graphy, by Jim Lewis and Kenneth Irving.

Astrologers use the familiar horoscope based on the time and place of birth to answer questions that range from the practical to the spiritual. How can we find what we seek from life, whether it be love, fame, or fortune, and how can we develop the full potential that we feel we were born with? Astrology's traditional answers are based on two things: the changes to the horoscope caused by the steady forward movement of time, and the often quirky ebb and flow of the important relationships in our lives. Astro*Carto*Graphy tells us there is a third way—we can control the changes in our lives more directly through the simple insight that the horoscope links our birth planets to the entire world. Stories from the lives of everyday people, and the lives of famous and infamous newsmakers, show how this works, and the late Jim Lewis' detailed explanations of the changes each planet can bring to a particular location allow you to apply the insights of Astro*Carto*Graphy's unique and beautiful maps in your own life.

Psychology of Astro*Carto*Graphy:

This is the definitive book on Astro*Carto*Graphy by the man who, in fact, invented it, Jim Lewis. (Kenneth Irving got his name in here because Lewis died before the book was quite complete. Irving did a very nice job of finishing the work, and was the driving force behind the new reprint.) - Dave Roell at www.astroamerica.com

This is a beautifully produced book, with many updates and additions by Kenneth Irving. For anyone using astromapping and locality techniques, this is an essential work. - Mary Plumb in The Mountain Astrologer.

...if you're an intermediate student or a new professional and you're not yet acquainted with Astro*Carto*Graphy, do yourself a favor and buy this book. You may very well open up a whole other world! - Donna Van Toen in Horoscope Guide.
