Richard Idemon sees the birth chart, a symbol of inherent universal order, as a labyrinth - a logical but complicated and elusive structure. The interwoven symbols in the horoscope are made up of a single thread that, when unravelled - like the magic thread of Ariadne - lead us through the maze to the heart of the chart and our own nature. The Magic Thread by Richard Idemon is transcribed from a six-day lecture given in 1986.

This review is from: The Magic Thread: Astrological Chart Interpretation Using Depth Psychology (Paperback)

I can only agree with the other reviewers. In this book The Magic Thread Richard Idemon explains some very intresting points on horoscope delineations/interpretation. Though The Magic Thread is a transcript of his seminars, it's very readable and structured. You will learn how to read an astrological chart as a logical but complicated and elusive structure: the horosocpe as a magic thread. You will learn about dominant and inferior functions, the meaning of singletons, final dispositors, the ascendant as mask and incest in the family etc... Due to the untimely death of the author in 1987 we will miss quite a lot of other insights he could have given us. If you can get this book, The Magic Thread get it because in it you will find some insightful opinions that will broaden your astrological view.

The Magic Thread by Richard Idemon, is done from conference notes, is chocked full of
ways to "distill" the chart by looking at functions (missing/inferiors are covered), polarities, major aspect configurations,& degree significance.
The info on Transpersonal (universal) planets--Uranus, Neptune, & Pluto-- in their interactions with personal planets, is invaluable, and goes well w/ Dane Rudhyar's Transpersonal work. The info on singleton planets, inferior functions, and T-Squares, yods, etc. is well-explained.
Richard Idemon's method of distillation is a quick way to see the "legend" of a chart, keeping the many layers of a chart more manageable. Follow Ariadne's Thread with this book!
