“Jupiter and Uranus meet every fourteen years. When they do, revolution and innovation join forces with restless exploration and the quest for knowledge.The result is always exciting, educational and unpredictable. Or is it ?”
There’s a definate buzz around a new book on the block. Jupiter Meets Uranus: From Erotic Bathing to Star Gazing is an indepth research study by astrologer Anne Whitaker just published by the esteemed American Federation of Astrologers.
Centred around the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction of 1997, Anne has meticulously gathered evidence of the manifestations of this contact on both global and personal levels. By observing worldwide events and working with a team of individuals who volunteered their own charts and lives, traditional interpretations of this conjunction are put to the test.
Anne Whitaker has been a practising astrologer since 1983 and holds a Diploma from the Centre for Psychological Astrology. She is also a gifted writer. As a regular reader of Anne’s blog, I find her writing style insightful and accessible and she has a wealth of wisdom and experience to share. Her book has been very well received by well known names in the astrological world.
“ I have read your book – and enjoyed it very much. It is truly a fine piece of work and packed with so much information…” Juliet Sharman-Burke, administrator of the Centre for Psychological Astrology (London), author of a number of books on the Tarot, and co-author (with Liz Greene) of “The Mythic Tarot”, “The Mythic Journey ” and “The Astrologer, the Counsellor and the Priest”
“I must say I am impressed with Anne Whitaker’s scholarship and insight.‘From Erotic Bathing to Star Gazing’ would make a marvelous doctoral dissertation, as it explores a limited configuration –Jupiter conjunct Uranus– with great depth and precision. Compellingly written and intelligently argued from start to finish, Whitaker’s book represents the cutting edge of astrological research. I heartily recommend it.” Glenn Perry PhD, astro-therapist, consultant, director of the Association for Psychological Astrology and author of six books on Astro Psychology including “Essays in Psychological Astrology : Theory and Practice”
“Colourful, insightful and painstakingly researched, there is simply no other study of its kind available.” Frank Clifford of Flare Books(UK), and Principal of the London School of Astrology
With endorsements such as these and the vivid cover which to me captures the very essence of Jupiter-Uranus conjunction I am very much looking forward to adding this to my bookshelf. A full review will follow in the next few weeks.
