The Spirit of Numbers:
a New Exploration of Harmonic Astrology
In this book I have set out my belief that each of the prime numbers has its own inherent quality, or spiritual essence, which is different from the quality of all the other prime numbers. The essence of the number One is called Oneness; in the same way, the essence of the other numbers can be called Twoness, Threeness and so on. The quality of the relationship between the planets in the Birth Chart is determined by the angular distance between them: thus, for example, if the angular distance between the Sun and the Moon is one-fifth (or two-fifths) of the circle, then their relationship has the quality of Fiveness. Using evidence from the Birth Charts of famous people, I have reached conclusions about the nature of the “spirit” of each of the prime numbers up to 31.
Although the evidence for these conclusions is drawn from astrology, I believe that it has wider implications. We are not bound by our Birth Charts; we have choices about the extent to which we live our lives in the spirit of Twoness, or of Threeness, Fiveness and so on. I have spelt out some of these implications in the book.
I have also provided details of a new technique for calculating harmonic aspects, which does not involve the drawing of harmonic charts. However, I recognize that, since there is as yet no computer program which replicates this technique, the task of calculation may seem laborious to many astrologers. (It becomes quicker with practice, but at the first attempt it can take quite a long time.)
I am therefore offering to calculate harmonic aspects (in accordance with the technique described in the book) for any chart which is sent to me. The fee for this service will be £25 for a single chart (or £40 if you wish me to include the asteroids Ceres, Pallas, Vesta and Juno). If you wish me to calculate aspects for more than one chart, the fee for the second and subsequent charts will be £20 per chart (or £35 including the asteroids). I will also send you a blank copy of the Aspect Form which I use for recording harmonic aspects. (If you wish me to send you this form on its own, the fee will be £2.)
If you wish to take up this offer, please send the details of the chart(s) (name, time, place) to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will then inform you of the address to which you should send a cheque for the appropriate amount.
My apologies to overseas readers, but I regret that I cannot accept money other than in pounds sterling and in U.K. cheques.
