Uncover New Depths of Yourself by Decoding Moon- Planet Cycles and Phases
Uniting Eastern and Western astrological approaches, this groundbreaking book takes you beyond static birth chart analysis and immerses you in the diverse power of the lunar phases.

Start a new relationship or reignite a current one when Moon-Venus is in the new phase. Discover how Moon-Pluto in the balsamic phase helps you resolve issues of the past and move forward. Whether you're a beginner or seasoned practitioner, Astrology by Moonlight offers illuminating insights for every step of your cosmic journey.
"How does the ever-changing Moon dance with the rest of the planets in your chart? In Astrology By Moonlight, Aal and Subramanyan eloquently answer that question. Their approach is fresh, creative, and boundary-shattering."—Steven Forrest, author of The Inner Sky
"Astrology by Moonlight proves today's astrology can be penetratingly accurate, widely accessible and filled with genuine wisdom. The root power of the book derives from a comprehensive and cross-cultural explanation of the astrological Moon on which any astrologer or astrolyte would be foolish not to take notes. This deep analysis is then impressively applied to the Moon's phases with each planet. This is truly a book for our times in that it addresses each of us as complex embodiments of the flow of consciousness rather than as products of a frozen birth chart."—Adam Gainsburg, founder of Soulsign Astrology
"Tara Aal and Aswin Subramanyan meld the principles of Western evolutionary astrology and the centrality of the Moon in Jyotish, the Hindu system of astrology, to produce a fresh understanding of lunar symbolism in personal development. Grounding their work in Dane Rudhyar's pioneering insights into the importance of the lunation cycle in chart interpretation, Tara and Aswin extend Rudhyar's thinking from the Moon's cycle with respect to the Sun, to the lunar cycle in relation to the seven visible and three modern planets, that is, from Mercury out to Pluto. The result is a novel and thought-provoking treatise which expands our understanding of the role of the Moon as a symbol in human psychology and astrological predictive work. East truly meets West in this volume, and it is well worth reading and contemplation."—Anthony Louis, author of Horary Astrology
"Insightful and compelling, Astrology by Moonlight takes a deeper look at the Moon and its relationship to and with the other planets. This thorough and thought-provoking book is a powerful collaboration between two astrologers who come from different astrological traditions yet create a synergy and resonance that opens doors to both the heart and the mind. Get ready to explore new territory by joining these two fine astrologers as they traverse the rich undercurrents that exist when you delve into how each planet connects to the Moon through the phases. Not only will it expand your astrological knowledge, it will expand your awareness."—Lesley Francis, professional astrologer, intuitive, and facilitator
