Description

About Kabbalistic Astrology

A rabbi reveals the profound astrological tradition to be found in the Kabbalah, Bible, Talmud, and Midrash.


• A thorough explanation of the most sophisticated system of astrology known.


• More than 30 tables and charts for doing readings and creating horoscopes.


• New edition of Astrological Secrets of the Hebrew Sages.


The ancient Hebrews developed the richest and most sophisticated system of astrology known in the Western world, but this practice has been almost completely forgotten. Now Joel Dobin, an ordained rabbi and practicing astrologer, brings to light the wealth of astrological information in the Kabbalah, Bible, Talmud, and Midrash, revealing a profound tradition as valuable today as it was millennia ago. Key to this astrological system is the Kabbalah--the Jewish mystery tradition--in which the sacred Tree of Life links the influences of the twelve zodiacal constellations and seven planets to specific letters of the Hebrew alphabet, creating a unique method for constructing horoscopes. Analyses of the zodiac according to the rulerships of the sons of Jacob, the importance of solar and lunar directions and masculine and feminine influences, and the paradigm-shifting nature of the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction (next scheduled for 2001) are all explored for their impact on global and personal destiny. More than 30 tables and charts put all the information needed for doing astrological readings at your fingertips.

Book Praise

"A mammoth effort that succeeds in showing why we must remember the mother science that reveals to us the plans of the heavens and the will of God. Astrologers can find great value in this book, especially in weighing and using techniques of ancient time."

Astrology Guide



"A fascinating undertaking by a modern-day astrologer who is probably closer to the spirit of his forebears than his fellow rabbis. . . . What comes across from the beginning is knowledge of material accumulated over millennia and absorbed into every cell."
