Dairamar Jan 26, Amy Herring rated it it was amazing Shelves: On the other hand, this is the second time I have read the book, so trxnsformao was compelling enough to have me re-read it. The author is sophisticated in his description of the psychological, spiritual, and energetic complexities of Saturn and the planets beyond. Deep and more spiritual than your average astrology book. Everyone interested in karm and spirituality. The title of the book I would think draws only those seriously intereste THE best book ever on the outer planets in all regards: Jan 20, Ollie rated it it was amazing.

Arroyo tackles the difficult subject of karma head on in the very first chapter. He helps us understand karma in its various forms through its connection with several key astrological factors, namely Saturn, the "karmic" or crises-related signs Virgo, Pisces and Scorpio, the "water" houses, i. We are all, each of us, caught up in our individual karmic machines, giving some and taking some.
In every lifetime we have the opportunity to make a little progress in a direction that will enable us to transcend this karmic loop, But every little step in this direction requires that we transform ourselves in powerful ways.
Having set the stage with a broad discussion of karma, the core of the book deals with transformation, and how different factors in the birth chart symbolize the potentials for different kinds of transformations with different implications.
Arroyo contends that all of astrology deals with transformations, giving every planetary symbol its due. However, it is universally or at least astro-universally recognized that Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are the prime significators of transformation. And in grappling with the actions of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto is where this book truly comes alive. Arroyo expends great effort to not deliver a "cookbook" of recipes. Instead, he draws frameworks and broad principles by abstracting common themes.
If you like lots of examples, you may not like Mr. What he gives are concepts; you can apply them yourself to a thousand examples once you grasped the essence.
This is his most important and distinctive contribution as a writer and illustrator of astrological development. A good part of the book is devoted to the timing of cycles that bring transformative potential.
The two major transformation-marking cycles are progressions principally of he Sun and Moon and the transits of the "outer five planets", namely Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. The fact that Jupiter is included in this list may be puzzling to many who equate transformation with pain in the sense of "no pain, no gain". For Jupiter is the "great benefic", and his actions are seen as positive.
Strangely, the last three chapters seem to have been thrown in simply for good measure, a potpourri of musings on miscellaneous topics and practical advice to astrological counselors that have no clear connection with the rest of the book.
I did find these chapters interesting in their own right, but was puzzled at their inclusion. That said, "Astrology, Karma, and Transformation" offers great depth of content. I regard this book as a milestone in astrological literature, a must read and a must have.
