This is not a new publication but I feel it deserves to be reviewed simply because of the quality and quantify of information found within it. For the serious astrology student or enthusiast, this book is a well written, in-depth exploration of not only major aspects, but also the minor aspects.
When I first bought this book for my own library of reference books, I must admit that I wasn't expecting such a wealth of information to be packed into less than 280 pages (A5 size)! This is not a book designed for light reading, so turn the TV and radio off.
Bil Tierney has been involved with astrology for more than thirty-five years. He has lectured and given workshops at major astrological conferences throughout the United States and Canada since the mid-1970s. The author has been a member of the Metropolitan Atlanta Astrological Society (MAAS) for many years, and has served as its newsletter/journal editor several times. Bil's work has been published in astrological publications such as Aspects and The Mercury Hour.
While looking through this book, I must say that I was impressed by the collection of references that would be particularly helpful for those of you wanting to explore certain topics in more depth. There is no index, although I'm not sure it would have made a difference having one since the information is so well set out.
My personal favourite part of this book is Chapter 10, Retrograde Planets. I liked the exploration of stationary planets within a natal and progressed chart and, of course, the individual planets within the birth chart that are retrograde, stationary retrograde and stationary direct. These themes are also explored in terms of transits and progressions as well.
All in all, Dynamics of Aspect Analysis is a book I recommend for the serious astrologer or astrology student to include as part of their personal reference library. Definitely worth having!
Bil Tierney has succeeded in contributing a very broad in scope and in depth look at the "Dynamics of Aspect Analysis" that is as understandable as it is rich in content. Highly recommended...a wonderful resource!
