- About APA
Astrological psychosynthesis is a holistic approach to astrology, bringing not only greater self-understanding but also growth in consciousness. Based on the work of Roberto Assagioli, the founder of psychosynthesis, it follows the premise that every human being has a soul—a higher self—which is at the root of all developmental processes.
Astrological psychosynthesis aims to help people to find their own true self and work consciously towards integration and wholeness. The horoscope is used not just as an analytical tool, but also as an instrument to enhance the process of self-realization and transformation.
The book is divided into three parts, showing how factors in the horoscope relate to our intelligence, to the integration of our personality, and to our love, sexuality and relationships. The middle part introduces Bruno Huber’s model of the ‘amphora’ or ‘bottle’, illustrating the role of the planets in our psychological and spiritual growth processes.
After a period of collaboration with Assagioli in the late 1950s, Bruno Huber and his wife Louise devoted their lives to developing and teaching the principles of their system of astrological psychology, now well-known in many countries.
We are pleased to have made available this revised version of Astrological Psychosynthesis. Previous editions have been found by many to provide a compelling introduction to the Hubers’ approach.
