The Living Birth Chart

The Living Birth Chart

Astrological Psychology in Practice

by Joyce Hopewell

The Living Birth Chart aims to provide insight into the practical use of the life-changing astrological approach to psychology known as Astrological Psychology or the Huber Method. This modern application of astrology to self understanding and personal growth was developed by Swiss astrologer/psychologists Bruno & Louise Huber, and is outlined in the earlier popular introduction The Cosmic Egg Timer, by Joyce Hopewell & Richard Llewellyn.

Many of the topics covered in The Cosmic Egg Timer are revisited in greater depth, with an emphasis on working practically with the material presented, and working hands-on with your own chart. Joyce shares her own experience and understanding, based on over thirty years as an astrological counsellor, teacher, correspondence tutor and training facilitator with the UK-based Astrological Psychology Association. The practical exercises suggested have been tried and tested in training seminars and workshops, bringing deeper understanding and insight to the people who have worked through them.

Huber-style birth charts make extensive use of colour, so it is appropriate that this second edition of The Living Birth Chart now has full colour illustrations, so better illustrates the full power of this wonderful approach to personal and spiritual development.

The Living Birth Chart will be of interest to the general reader seeking more insight into themselves and their own growth process. It will particularly interest astrologers, psychologists and counsellors who are not familiar with the Huber approach, but wish to gain insight into it. Current students of astrological psychology will find The Living Birth Chart a helpful supplement to their studies.
