Unveil the Mysteries of the Moon!

Lunar Returns by John Townley. Every month the Moon above comes back to where it was exactly when you were born. Called the Lunar Return, the chart cast for this instant tells the tale of the next 27 1/2 days to come. It paints your emotional landscape day by day and reveals the tides that wash over your life as the Moon drives her daily course. Once a primary tool of every professional astrologer, this invaluable technique has often been neglected because of its demanding subtlety and complexity.

In his book, Lunar Returns, long-time astrological innovator John Townley has cut to the core of how and why to use the Lunar Return, giving the student or professional astrologer the keys to the heart and the pulse of each and every month.

John Townley is also the author of Planets in Love, has been the president of the Astrologers’ Guild of America, was the editor of The Astrological Review, and is a contributor to professional and popular astrological periodicals. John Townley is also a well-known media journalist, elected member of the American Society of Authors and Journalists, historian, preservationist, performer, and record producer.


This is a great book both in writing and analysing Lunar Returns profoundly. John Townley has a wonderful way of explaining complex astrological meanings in a short and as entertaining, but meaningful sentences. John Townley is very gifted writer and astrologer (the combination is not as usual as one should assume).

This IMHO the best of (sadly) very few astrological book about the interesting Lunar Returns. He should write one about Solar Returns too, it would surely be a contributation besides to all existing books about that topic. John Townley talks about house positions of all planets and the nodes, their respective angles, angles to natal chart, even Full and New Moon positions/transits to both chart types. Really great!
