Manly Hall's short work on reincarnation and astrology is a good read, however, one might not quite grab onto his ideas immediately if one reads this book in isolation to Hall's other works. I think to really benefit from this book, one should read Hall's other books on Reincarnation and Astrology for I think his ideals differ slightly than from what is written elsewhere. This way to get a firm foundation on what the author understands as "reincarnation" and "astrology" would make this book clearer. My personal take on Astrology is limiting which made the read for me more of a curious book than anything I can apply to my current studies. Nonetheless, he makes some interesting remarks regarding the two subjects. The basic premise is that the sign in which we are born in is the continuation of karmic cycles from our previous life. Thus, being born in the Ascendant of Gemini, the processes which I am working with most are of Taurean nature. Furthermore, the author suggests that if we take the time of death for a particular person and erect a horoscope at the moment of death, we can determine to some degree the kind of life the spirit will re-embody. If you are into astrology and are curious about reincarnation, this book is a good stepping stone to the subject and how to utilize information in regards to past and future lives.
