This woman is a wealth of information! She is wonderful. If by chance,
This book is really 'mind blowing'! After reading this book your view of midpoints,
harmonic charts, and astrocartography will be forever changed.
" The use of midpoints and harmonics reveals new information about familiar
horoscopes that can dramatically alter the interpretation of a chart. These
fast-growing techniques, based on the division of the 360-degree Zodiac
by whole numbers, reveal some of the underlying principles of astrology
in action. Together with AstroCartoGraphy they offer astrologers 'a moment-by-moment
source of revelation that can bring us closer than anything to the real
nature of astrology'.

The Dial Detective by Maria Kay Simms
"The best thing about Uranian Astrology is the90° dial....
Over the years, when I have lectured at various conferences around the country, l've heard expressions of frustration from people who are eager to learn the 90° dial and Uranian astrology, but have no ready access to a teacher. Existing books on the technique, with minimal llustrations, were too hard to follow. Good Uranian teachers are few, outside of the New York area. lt seemed evident that my ability as a graphic artist offered a unique opportunity to create a book that could be used as a self- teaching device for dial technique.
The dial is not difficult to use,
in fact I have found that it helps many students who are relative beginners
learn astrology faster. lt is probably not for everyone. An analogy
that I like is one l've heard Gary Christen use: Some people are oriented
toward digital clocks and some people like dock faces better. The dial
is for the clock-face-people. lf you like to scan through computer lists,
and figure precise mathematical orbs of aspect, and do other pñmarily
"left-brain" things like that, you probably like digital docks and may
not "take to" this technique. But if you
are visually oriented, you are going to love it!
A turn of the dial will reveal pictures of symmetry that will "speak" to
I have quite successfully taught the dial to people
who had only recently begun their study

This is a very nicely done, textbook style book done in loose-leaf format in a yellow binder.
The authors begin by covering the basics of Uranian astrology, starting with basic meanings for the sensitive points (Intrinsic Points--Visible Planets--Transneptunian Planets).There are some interpretations for combinations of the Transneptunians with the Sun, Moon, Meridian, Ascendant, Nodes, and Cardinals.
There is a chapter which explains the five main house systems, how these are set up, and what each system indicates. Next comes instructions on setting up360 degree and 90 degree wheels as well as info as aspects. Figuring half-sums is covered along with some sample interpretations to get you started.
Included is a copy of a 360 degree wheel, a 90 degree wheel, as well
as a graph for half-sums.

The author, Doris Greaves, wrote "Cosmobiology,
a Modern Approach" in 1978.
This book is filled with astrological knowledge and wisdom. It combines traditional methods with Cosmobiology and therefore takes an holistic approach to the interpretation of the horoscope or Cosmogram.
Doris has also included some of her own research into the use of the Vertex, Equatorial ascendant and the Part of Fortune, giving descriptions of transiting planets to these points.
Explanations are given throughout the chapters,

chapter is "The Graphic Ephemeris and Interpretations". Doris has included
an interpretation of transiting Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune,
Pluto and the Moon's Node to all planets, and points including the Vertex,

If you are serious about Uranian or Cosmobiology you must use a dial, even if you have a relevant computer program. Why? Astrologers experienced with dial work say that it gives a person a 'feel for the symmetry' that is difficult to achieve on the computer screen. A computer can put an unbalanced emphasis on 'the intellect'. Combining the tactile sense with intuition and the intellect produces superior astrological insights. This of course is debatable, but most 'dialers' would advise beginners to use one for a good while.
Start with a 90 degree dial; later on you may
want to try a 45 or even the old 360.

While you are at it, also order "The Dial Detective" by Maria Simms. There is a 90 degree dial in the back of the book, but you would be better off to get the laminated version for a few dollars more.
If you're thinking of side-stepping dials by getting a computer program like Astologic, then think again as users of both will tell you that dial work is indispensable to really understand and feel the Uranian system.
