For the first time, this book offers astrologers: Paran Maps and Star Phases for over 60 stars; new insights into the natal use of fixed stars, as well as their use in mundane astrology; extensive appendices of Heliacal Rising and Acronychal Settinggraphs and tables so that, for any given location, the dates of these risings and settings can be found; a list of 176 stars with their 21st century Ptolemaic precessed positions versus their commonly-considered positions based on Ulugh Beg's methods.
