Publisher Comments:

Well-known astrologer/author Steven Forest writes of Astrology of the Heart:

As Castanedas don Juan would put it, Erlewine moves fluidly between the worlds. But not just between the mental, intellectual constructs of those worlds. Michael, like a Druids apprentice or a Buddhist monk, has submitted to the spiritual direction of men and women he was humble enough to realize were wiser than himself. He has received initiations. He has gone down into the Dark, into the Great Silence, into the Luminous Void. He has, in other words, done something not enough astrologers do: mind-training. He has visited the worlds to which the astrological symbols refer. He speaks of them not with the authority of erudite footnotes, but with the authority of direct experience.

Walking his talk, Erlewine has placed a stepping stone between two very different worlds. He stands on that middle stone, with white water roaring all around him. And his finger is pointing at the moon I find myself filled with gratitude toward Michael, and also with a sense of encouragement This is beautiful stuff. — Steven Forest

Astrology of the Heart will be of particular interest to the counseling astrologer or those astrologers who want to understand the shamanic nature of astrology at a deeper level. Many books are available about standard astrological techniques, but few about the inner meaning of astrology as it is understood and used by professionals.

This book is about life paths, rites of passage, climacteric years, turning points in the life, and how to find and understand them in your horoscope. Not a book of abstract theory, but a practical manual to understanding what out-of-the-body experience, thechakras, initiation, and other esoteric topics are really about.

As Erlewine says, The esoteric is hidden in, of all places, plain sight ; What is missing is our being able to grasp these experiences. This book shows you how.

Michael Erlewine is an internationally-known astrologer with over 40 years of experience as an author, teacher, and counselor. Aside from founding Matrix Software (the first astrological software company), Erlewine is also an Internet content pioneer, founding sites like,,,, and many others. He has authored more than 13 books on astrology and over a dozen books on music and film. You can Google Michael Erlewine or go to http: // for more details.
