Banyen's Description: 

Written by a counseling astrologer based in Toronto, this engaging book is an introduction into the basic principles of astrology. Priscilla Costello unveils the secrets of this elegantly developed language of symbols. She shares with the reader both the philosophical and esoteric world view of astrology, while exploring the meanings of signs, planets, houses, and aspects, as well as its connection to psychology, religion and spirituality. The Weiser Concise Guide to Practical Astrology serves as both a primer for the new student of astrology and a handy reference for the more seasoned practitioner. As complete as it is concise, this course of study delves deeply into the history and true spirit of astrology, making it accessible to all.

While this book contains descriptive lists for planets in signs and houses, and for aspects in the familiar “cookbook” style, the maturity and wisdom of the author brings a depth of meaning that is not found in many books. She also gives historical perspectives on controversial areas, such as House Systems.

The Sun in the Houses

One of the most important placements in the horoscope is the Sun’s house position, which can highlight one’s main life purpose. The Sun may express itself as follows:

Sun in the First House: a strong need to focus on yourself and your own development and then to express your personality confidently to the world. This position can foster a forceful drive to project yourself into the environment so that others experience you as a strong and dominant presence.

Watch for: attention getting; relating everything to yourself; overwhelming others.
