Getting into Astrological Psychology

Maybe you know little about astrological psychology but want to get to know more. How to go about it?

Personal Contact

One of the best ways of getting to know more is to talk to someone who knows. You could try a consultation with one of our consultants, or just speak to one of our tutors.


The best introduction to astrological psychology is The Cosmic Egg Timer, by Joyce Hopewell and Richard Llewellyn. Reading this will give you a good appreciation of what astrological psychology is all about, and prepare you for taking it further. Following that, Joyce’s The Living Birth Chart will then give you a full feeling for the power of this approach.

If you are already familiar with astrology, you will still find value in the above, but could easily move on from this to one of the books by Bruno & Louise Huber, such as Astrological Psychosynthesis or The Astrological Houses.

Once you are convinced that you want to understand astrological psychology in greater detail, either for your own development or with a view to using it to help others, the book Astrological Psychology: The Huber Method provides a systematic approach to learning the whole subject, possibly with tutor support.

If your interest is more academic than practical, you might also consider starting with Sue Lewis’s Astrological Psychology, Western Esoterism and the Transpersonal.

The full range of books is on the HopeWell website.


The Cosmic Egg Timer and The Living Birth Chart are also widely available as ebooks.

If you know very little about astrology you might prefer to start with a basic grounding in astrology. This is provided by the Ebook Foundation Astrology, available from the APA Ebook Store, with possible tutor support.

A browse through the Ebook Store may also provide an inexpensive way to find out more about particular aspects of astrological psychology. For example there are seminar transcripts of the Hubers and others, and the recently added newsletter/magazine Conjunction. Many of these are available free in the Members’ Area of the website, if you become a member of APA.

The web

The APA website itself contains a wealth of information and resources, including the APA blog‘s current and historical posts.

The APA @astpsy Twitter stream enables you to keep up to date with the latest information.

Another rich resource is provided by Joyce Hopewell’s blog.


Whatever approach you choose, be aware that you are potentially embarking on a life-changing journey. Good luck!
