The Astrology of Fate - Liz Greene. As Professor Gilbert Murray says, ‘Astrology fell upon the Hellenistic mind as a new disease falls upon some remote island people.

Liz Greene elegantly discusses cultural taboos in a variety of ways whilst showing the interrelationships between cultural taboos, family inheritance, and individual responsibility. I find it beautiful, but others may understandably be uncomfortable - it's not bad, as the book goes deep and hard, discussing suicide of patients, abuse, manipulation, etc. Try it, read it, think about.

Whatever Ms Hickey's purpose, and however conscious it was or was not, her rejection of the young Liz Greene spurred the development of 20th and 21st astrology in a way that perhaps could not have been achieved otherwise.

This is an amazing book.

On a personal level, astrology doesn't click with me. But, I find the myth and lore behind the planets, their respective gods and meanings, utterly fascinating. In our current era, spirituality has taken on a looseness I have come to suspect is more harmful than detrimental. I was once on the band wagon of anti-fate, and while I don't deny the ability to be self-willing, I wonder if there are valuable lessons we can learn as a society on a whole when we view our lives through the lens of Fate.

I found that reading this book was an emotional, sensitive, exciting, and thought provoking experience. It's hard to describe Liz Greene's methods without taking away from the book, but suffice to say, if you have ever felt a burden of fate, seen interweaving of personal stories in your family history, have experienced intense self-hatred arising from a place deep within yourself - you'll find resonance in her words.

It's not an easy read if you're expecting tabloid astrology, or if talking about (or even thinking about) things like family incest, inheritance, sexuality and the like make you squirm. Liz Greene elegantly discusses cultural taboos in a variety of ways whilst showing the interrelationships between cultural taboos, family inheritance, and individual responsibility. I find it beautiful, but others may understandably be uncomfortable - it's not bad, as the book goes deep and hard, discussing suicide of patients, abuse, manipulation, etc.

Try it, read it, think about. I'm not sure if astrology unto itself is the key to our future, and yet, I admire people like Liz Greene who, eschewing the morality and hushing of a Judeo-Christian society, really shines a light on human nature as it truly is - dark, animal, and more wild and mysterious than we can begin to imagine.
Ms Greene wonders throughout the pages of this book if our fates are fixed. I dare to say that the "starting position" depicted on our birth chart is just a proposal, a potential. If we allow the Holy Spirit to guide us, He will improve on that potential; if we instead rely on the egos, the potential depicted on the birth chart will be ruined. The book is beautifully developed by Ms Greene and it makes for a delightful reading. Ms Greene really shines here.
I'm a huge fan of Liz Greene. Especially the books about her lecture with Stephen Arroyo, they are the gems of my life forever.
Unfortunately, not this book.

In my humble opinion, this book is too much on mythology, very heavy on the myths indeed to the point that you find very little about astrology. You've got to read through bunch and bunch of all the mythic stories of Norse, Greek, Roman and on and on before you got the point. Especially when you are an asian with different beliefs like me. I am an avid readers of Greek/Roman mythology and even study Norse folktales I still find the book "very hard to read". All the myths she spent most of the book writing about them overcloud the astrological knowledge.

But if you are a keen student of ancient myths may be you will find the rare gem in this very thick and expensive book.
One of the deepest books on astrology and Jungian psychology you can find. Liz Greene's analytical prowess is amazing, drawing on quotes from everyone from Euripedes, Bertrand Russel and Joseph Campbell, and weaving mythological stories alongside case studies of analysands and natal charts. Her in depth study of each of the signs is worth buying the book in itself, but her delineation of the place of Fate in modern society and thinking, and the question of whether we reflect the heavens or they reflect us, remains relevant today. Certainly a must for anyone's reading list!
Some of the myths and overall insight discussed by the author in Chapter 8 "Myth and the Zodiac" kept ringing in my head for days. I was mesmerized in recognizing hidden aspects of myself and one or two of my closest friends and family regarding some personal characteristics that baffled me in the past. The "clicking in my head" was an uncanny experience, and just this made more than worthwhile reading the book. I have a large attunement to Pluto- Sun, Mars, and Venus within a 4° conjunction with Pluto, Scorpio Moon and Ascendant, and the South node in the 8th house- so I was eager to read all about Pluto. However, the book did not bring forth many great new insights into Fate's forging fist, although I will read it again in the near future.
With respect to writing style, although I have the utmost respect for the author, I always find in Ms. Greene's writings the former to be a bit too erudite, not in depth, but a tad heavy due to her intent to be thorough in which, I respectfully feel, that the proverbial nail is hit on the head once too much. Because of this, sometimes my attention tends to wander, and I find myself in need to draw upon discipline to keep my mind focused.
I found a printing error in one of the progression lists depicted in the book even though I did not inspected them in full, and also King Henry II on 3/31/1559 became 40 years old (birth 3/31/1519), so he was in his 41st year at the time of his death 7/10/1559 and not in his 42nd year as stated in the book and in the prophecy, according to the book, made by Gauricus about 4 years before. Nostradamus' quatrain referring to this event does not indicate age or date (I apologize for pointing out these minor details but my Sun is in Virgo....fate). Although this, the prophecy is a most remarkable event.
All in all, a great and gallant book dealing with a knotty issue about fate and free will, and even though a thorough answer was not truly expected, I perceived the author overall "feeling" on the subject, although I suspect she has more to say that was not put forth in writing.
Like all her books!
the sections on the sun signs are center of the bullseye.
an excellent primer on astrology
from an erudite and articulate author.
truly top shelf scholar, with deep psychological understanding
and background, with important insights.
life is purgatory, steer clear
