Lunar Mansions Guide
Rediscovering the Western Zodiac
By Oscar Hofman
Publisher: Wessex Astrologer
Trade paperback. 189 pages, bibliography, illustrated and with example charts.
This book will provide you with the long—lost key to the traditional Western lunar mansions, also once known as the Manzils. In The Lunar Mansions Guide: Rediscovering the Western Lunar Zodiac, Oscar Hofman retrieves and regenerates this old and important technique which, in Western astrology at least, has become almost obsolete. His investigations were based on the critical evaluation of old texts, and on his extensive knowledge of the fixed stars, their natures and especially their mythological stories. The result of his hard work is demonstrated here in copious case studies, showing that the method is a wonderful tool suitable for use in natal, electional and predictive astrology. Th e Lunar Mansions Guide makes the perfect companion to Oscar’s previous book, Fixed Stars in the Chart, and will be welcomed by seasoned students as well as those who are new to the technique of lunar mansions.
