ASTROLOGY IN BUDDHISM
Use Buddhist wisdom and compassion to clarify your astrological readings. Author Jhampa Shaneman combines his depth of experience in Tibetan Buddhism with that of
contemporary Western astrologer Jan V. Angel in the first book to apply Buddhist practice to modern astrology.
While Buddhism is theologically and metaphysically compelling, it is also very practical. Within its tenets every psychological state is embraced, integrated, and brought to light. Astrology in Buddhism bridges familiar astrological thinking with the ideas of voidness, interdependence, and impermanence.
Explore how three key Buddhist wisdoms interact dynamically within Siddhartha’s chart, an inspiring new theory applicable to all astrological charts. Learn how Buddhist precepts can inform and enrich your understanding of the planets, houses, and aspects, providing a wholistic interpretation of the birthchart from a Buddhist perspective.
