The Cosmic Egg Timer

The Cosmic Egg Timer

Introducing Astrological Psychology

by Joyce Hopewell & Richard Llewellyn

The Cosmic Egg Timer offers an immediate approach to using the astrological birth chart to understand yourself and others. What kind of person are you? What makes you tick? What’s happening in your life right now? Which areas of life offer you the greatest potential?

Astrological Psychology was developed after extensive research by Swiss astrologer/psychologists Bruno and Louise Huber. Combining the best of traditional astrology with modern growth psychology, it provides a powerful tool for self-understanding and psychological and spiritual growth.

First published in 2004, then 2011, and now in this third, revised edition with colour illustrations, The Cosmic Egg Timer provides the best introduction to the Huber Method. It is suitable for beginners, as well as for professional astrologers, psychologists or counsellors seeking a fresh approach to working with clients.

“…the first clear and informative summary of the Hubers’ astrological psychology. …a direct adaptation into astrology of the spiritual teachings of Alice A. Bailey. It rests on the assumption that each of us has a soul purpose that can be realised through the horoscope.”

Dr. Nicholas Campion, Director, Sophia Centre, University of Wales Trinity Saint David

“This impressive book explains astrological psychology clearly in a logical and progressive manner. It enabled me to examine my own chart, and those of family and friends. I came away with a deeper awareness of myself, and a greater understanding of astrology. It has left me wanting to know more!”

A.Gregory, Newcomer to Astrology, London

“This fascinating book brilliantly offers… a real insight into the Huber Method. Read it and you will be able to put theory into practice – the results will be so impressive you will want to know more”

Peta High, Chair, Association of Professional Astrologers International

“This is a very good book to start with if you will learn about the Huber Method of Astrology.  Both Richard and Joyce have a profound knowledge on the subject. I can also recommend all Joyce Hopewell’s other books. She writes with a clarity and depth that you can hardly find anywhere else. But start with this one. You will not be disappointed. Enjoy!”
