Synthesis & Counseling in Astrology by Noel Tyl is one of the greatest and most important books on astrology I have ever read. Neither simple nor complicated, it is demandingwhen you read this book, you will be asked to dig into the conditions of life and put life into astrological measurements.
Synthesis & Counseling in Astrology has been called "The Professional Manual" for astrologers. It presents the keystone measurements that trigger our awareness of life patterns of conditioning. These singular measurements then reach out for others in the process of synthesis. Patterns start to emerge from the chart, familiar patterns of life that define personal reality. The many parts become a whole.
