<B>Archetypal Cosmos </B><I> Rediscovering the Gods in Myth, Science and Astrology.  Rediscovering the Gods in Myth, Science and Astrology</I>, GRICE, KEIRON LE
1 Archetypal Cosmos Rediscovering the Gods in Myth, Science and Astrology. Rediscovering the Gods in Myth, Science and Astrology
0863157750 / 9780863157752 2010 Paperback 
The modern world is passing through a time of critical change on many levels: cultural, political, ecological and spiritual. We are witnessing the decline and dissolution of the old order, the tumult and uncertainty of a new birth. Against this background, there is an urgent need for a coherent framework of meaning to guide and to lead us beyond the growing fragmentation of culture, belief and personal identity.

Keiron Le Grice argues that the developing insights of a new cosmology could provide this framework, helping us to discover an underlying order shaping our life experiences. In a compelling synthesis of the ideas of seminal thinkers from depth psychology and the new paradigm sciences, Le Grice positions the new discipline of archetypal astrology at the centre of an emerging world view that reunifies psyche and cosmos, spirituality and science, mythology and metaphysics, and enables us to see mythic gods, heroes and themes in a fresh light. He draws especially on the work of C. G. Jung, Joseph Campbell, Richard Tarnas, Fritjof Capra, David Bohm and Brian Swimme.
Heralding a 'rediscovery of the gods' and the passage into a new spiritual era, The Archetypal Cosmos presents a new understanding of the role of myth and archetypal principles in our lives, one that could give a cosmic perspective and deeper meaning to our personal experiences.

<B>Astrogeographia </B><I> Correspondences Between the Stars and Earthly Locations</I>, POWELL, ROBERT,  BOWDEN, DAVID
2 Astrogeographia Correspondences Between the Stars and Earthly Locations
1584201339 / 9781584201335 2013 Paperback 
'We can conceive of the active heavenly sphere mirrored in the Earth.' -- Rudolf Steiner
"As above, so below" is the foundation of all star wisdom. It was known in ancient times that there are correspondences between the macrocosm (heavenly realm) and the microcosm (human being) and the Earth. Astrogeographia is a modern form of that ancient star wisdom.
According to the astronomer Johannes Kepler:
There radiates into the Earth soul an image of the sense-perceptible zodiac and the whole firmament as a bond of sympathy between Heaven and Earth.... This imprint into the Earth soul through the sense-perceptible zodiac and the entire sphere of fixed stars is also confirmed through observation.
And Rudolf Steiner said in his course on astronomy, "We can conceive of the active heavenly sphere mirrored in the Earth." The authors of Astrogeographia set out to determine the correspondences between the starry heavens and the earthly globe—As above, so below.
There are many books on the sacredness and the spirituality of our Earth. Few books, however, deal with the relationship between the Earth and the cosmos, which is the central theme for the research presented in this book. Its point of departure is the one-to-one correspondence between the encircling starry heavens—the celestial sphere—and the sphere of the earthly globe. David Bowden has not only worked out the mathematics of this one-to-one correspondence, but has also written a computer program that applies it in practice. Thus, a new science has been born—Astrogeographia—concerning the one-to-one correspondence between the earthly sphere and the celestial sphere.

<B>Astronomy and Spiritual Science: The Astronomical Letters of Elizabeth Vreede </B><I> </I>, VREEDE, ELIZABETH
3 Astronomy and Spiritual Science: The Astronomical Letters of Elizabeth Vreede
0880105887 / 9780880105880 2001 Paperback 
ASTRONOMY AND SPIRITUAL SCIENCE collects writings on astronomy by Dr. Elizabeth Vreede and is a fascinating compendium of scientific and spiritual knowledge. Between September 1927 and August 1930, Dr. Vreede wrote a monthly "letter," available by subscription, about both modern astronomy and classical astrology in the light of spiritual science. These letters include clear explanations of the fundamentals of astronomy and discussions of the role of astrology in the modern world. They also include inspiring presentations of a worldview that sees the stars, planets, and in fact all physical phenomena as manifestations of spiritual beings and spiritual activities. Among the many topics Dr. Vreede considers are the role of nutation, precession, and other movements of the Earth in human evolution and life; the comets; the relations of the heavenly bodies to spiritual beings; horoscopes; solar and lunar eclipses; and the deeper meaning of the Christian holidays such as Easter and Whitsun.

<B>Mystery of Emerging Form </B><I> Imma von Eckardstein’s Drawings of the Constellations: A Biological Perspective</I>, RIOUX, YVAN
8 Mystery of Emerging Form Imma von Eckardstein’s Drawings of the Constellations: A Biological Perspective
191223002X / 9781912230020 Paperback 
Contemporary science views our planet as an insignificant speck of dust in the vastness of space, with its four kingdoms as a random assemblage of atoms. Yvan Rioux presents a radically different perspective, demonstrating an indissoluble relationship between Heaven and Earth. Over aeons of existence, the four kingdoms have manifested a creative power that perpetually brings forth new expressions. With the goal of bridging science and spirit, Rioux helps revive the old intuitive awareness of an intimate communion between the outer perceptible life of nature, the inner life of the soul and the majestic spiritual formative forces that preside as architects – an organic whole where all levels co-evolve.
The earth, nesting in its solar system, is connected with the Milky Way and the twelve constellations. The impact of the stars as an influence on human behaviour has been known for millennia. In the original edition of Rudolf Steiner’s Calendar of the Soul, twelve illustrations of the constellations, made by Imma von Eckardstein, were published for the first time. These intuitive drawings differ greatly from the traditional ones, but Steiner stressed their importance for our modern consciousness. The images invite us to comprehend formative forces in their various guises in the kingdoms of nature. By exploring the gifts of each constellation, the author uses Imma’s drawings as a template to elucidate the emergence of twelve basic forms as the common denominators of all creatures, leading eventually towards the human form.
‘The [new] images of the zodiac constellations represent actual experiences connected with the waking and sleeping of particular spiritual beings. In these images we have a knowledge that needs to be renewed at this time…’ – Rudolf Steiner (1912)
YVAN RIOUX was already a keen naturalist as a boy, taught by Christian Brothers and Franciscans. He studied biology at Montreal University, but it left him cold as it didn’t touch anything that was alive. Working for ten years as a biodynamic farmer in Quebec, however, he encountered living ecosystems. Later, in Montreal, he taught on the relationship between human physiology and nature. In 1992 he moved to England with his two boys and joined a family of two girls and their mother, Gabriel Millar, who became his muse. Retiring ten years ago, he decided to write about his knowledge gained from 25 years’ of teaching experience, culminating in the publication of The Mystery of Emerging Form.

<B>Signature of the Celestial Spheres </B><I> Discovering Order in the Solar System</I>, WARM, HARTMUT
9 Signature of the Celestial Spheres Discovering Order in the Solar System
1855842351 / 9781855842359 2010 Paperback 
6 colour plates
''A milestone in modern research on the the harmony of the spheres.'' - Novalis magazine ''This book reignites the debate on the harmony of the spheres.'' - Das Goetheanum

Is the solar system ordered, or is it simply the result of random and chaotic accidents? This book takes us on a powerful and compelling journey of discovery, revealing the celestial spheres' astonishingly complex patterns. The movements of the planets are found to correspond accurately with simple geometric figures and musical intervals, pointing to an exciting new perspective on the ancient idea of a ''harmony of the spheres''. Hartmut Warm's detailed presentation incorporates the distances, velocities and periods of conjunction of the planets, as well as the rotations of the Sun, Moon and Venus. Numerous graphics - including colour plates - illustrate the extraordinary beauty of the geometrical forms that result when the movements of several planets are viewed in relation to one another. In addition, the author describes and analyses the concepts of the ''music of the spheres'', with special consideration given to Johannes Kepler's revolutionary ideas. Current scientific beliefs about the origin of the universe and the solar system are explained, enabling the reader to understand fully how Warm's remarkable research supplements contemporary materialistic views of the cosmos. An appendix includes his mathematical and astronomical methods of calculation as well as detailed discussion of their accuracy and validity based on modern astronomical algorithms.

<B>Star Wisdom and Rudolf Steiner </B><I> A Life Seen Through the Oracle of the Solar Cross</I>, TRESEMER, DAVID,  SCHIAPPACASSE, ROBERT
11 Star Wisdom and Rudolf Steiner A Life Seen Through the Oracle of the Solar Cross
0880105747 / 9780880105743 2007 Paperback 
"We are each meant to discover the connection from our individual soul to spiritual realities not encompassed by the normal senses, requiring supersensible perception. Images can offer powerful assistance...However, we have forgotten about our own imagination, the creation of our own images. What was meant to be a balance between self-created imaginations and the enjoyment of others' imaginations has become seriously lopsided...We have become gluttons, even if unwilling gluttons, of images. The energetic body becomes fat while the soul starves. We are meant to feed the soul with our own realizations of its gifts. The personality and the soul feed each other, constantly." A gift was given you at your first breath - have you opened it? It came from the stars and impressed itself into you at your most vulnerable moment. In this introduction to astrosophy, or star wisdom, a science with ancient roots and modern relevance, David Tresemer shows how the patterns written in the heavens influence a person's life.
Taking as an example the remarkable life of Rudolf Steiner, Tresemer demonstrates the Oracle of the Solar Cross, whose four points interact throughout each of our lives to shape opportunities and challenges that our souls must face. Steiner spoke often of the "starry script" and hinted that, whereas its patterns impress themselves upon the human psyche, we can also influence this heavenly text, altering it in service of the continued development of humanity. Through stories from the life and examples from the work of Steiner as well as the Star Brothers and Sisters who share aspects of his Solar Cross, Tresemer illuminates this truth. Rich in art and anecdote, this groundbreaking book gives insight into the foundations of anthroposophy and shows how great acts, feelings, and thoughts by human beings on Earth shine out and impress their patterns into the cosmos.
