Key Words For Astrology
by Hajo Banzhaf & Anna Haebler. This little book cuts to the astrological chase in a concise, clear, exciting style. Hajo Banzha is a German-language writer (in translation here) whose clipped-to-the-point descriptions of all the basic astrological positions and combinations are steeped in a deep knowledge not only of the subject at hand, but of Jungian psychology, classical mythology, numerology, and Tarot.

While many authors who have written valuable books on chart analysis carry on at great lengths to discuss each element of the horoscope, Hajo Banzha is in every case clear, concise, illuminating, and almost best of all, he supplies us with brief, pithy, mythology or psychology-derived titles for nearly every combination here--titles such as Moon in Aries--the Amazon.

While this may sound simplistic on the surface, Hajo Banzha's deep knowledge of mythology, tarot, and depth psychology make his labels instantly clear and applicable--and separates him from many of the light-weight pop-mythologists who have littered the literary landscape in past years with their myth-lite treatises on Goddesses, etc.

Astrology as a symbolic language is subject to positive and negative readings, and Hajo Banzha is careful to supply both the positive and negative polarities of all situations. Key Words For Astrology is a mature, insightful, serious thinker and writer, and I wish more of his books were available in English. I'd recommend this one without reservation for anyone interested in Astrology, beginner through expert.

Key Words For Astrology by Hajo Banzhaf & Anna Haebler  is one of the best interpretive astrology books out there. It's not a "basic" book in the sense that it teaches you how to construct a natal chart; it won't walk you through the steps of finding your moon-sign, nor will it tell you if you have a grand-cross or a fire-trine, etc if you need those things, (pick up a copy of PARKER'S ASTROLOGY)...however, when you are ready to sit down and figure out what it means when you have moon-in-Taurus-conjunct-Mars-in-the-6th-house, this book CAN'T be beat.

The interpretations of placements are bold, assertive, and confident--a rare combination indeed! Most astrologers are too scared to crank out a strong interpretation because one placement might seem to contradict another, or there might be a placement that indicates a fondness for violence in someone that's an avowed pascifist...and so on. News flash: people are walking, talking contradictions! It's what makes us individuals! Hajo Banzhaf & Anna Haebler of KEY WORDS know that only too well and, rather than hide from it, they revel in it. An excellent work for anyone who (a) enjoys astrology and (b) enjoys THINKING about astrology.
