Sad news has reached us of the passing of Louise Huber co-founder, along with husband Bruno, of the Astrological Psychology Institute (API) in Adliswil, Switzerland.
Louise was a driving force in the founding of API in 1968. She supported the research made by Bruno into astrological psychology and the development of what has become known as the Huber Method. Alongside Bruno, she taught and lectured on astrological psychology not only in Switzerland but in many countries worldwide. She was a consulting astrologer working with clients and wrote numerous books on the subject of astrological psychology.
Bruno, when he was alive, said that theirs was a complementary partnership. He was the scientific researcher and Louise contributed intuitive and sometimes instant understanding of those aspects of astrological psychology that they were learning about as they developed their method. Both of them had been instrumental in founding the Geneva branch of the Arcane School in 1956, and Louise’s study of the works of Alice Bailey was an ongoing, lifelong task which she undertook joyfully, leading regular Full Moon meditations. In 1959 she and Bruno moved to Florence to study psychosynthesis with Roberto Assagioli, and to work as his assistants. On their return to Switzerland they founded API.
Louise is survived by her son, Michael, and her four grandchildren.
Louise Huber, born 10th May 1924, Bamberg, Germany. Died 13th January 2016, Salzbergen, Germany.
We would like to make the major theme of the next issue of Conjunction a tribute to Louise. Please send any reflections of your own, long or short, to firstname.lastname@example.org by the 20th April deadline, and we will aim to include them.

This was the last seminar given by Louise in English for members of the English and Spanish schools of astrological psychology.
Thank you for the comminique on one of the founders of our school’s passing. As a student I was inspired by her Moon Node Astrology work and now as a diploma holder I always consider the Moon Node horoscope with my clients. What a wonderful legacy!
From Sue Cameron:
My condolences to Michael and the family. Louise was a very special person and her deeply intuitive esoteric understanding is encapsulated in her valuable contribution to astrological psychology. I have fond memories of Adliswil where I gave my diploma presentation in the 1980’s, of taking part in powerful meditations led by Louise and of meeting her Mars quincunx Pluto head on when I started to load her dishwasher! Of all the seminars I attended, I particularly remember the 1998 seminar on the Seven Rays which was very special. Rest in Peace, Louise.
I was sad to hear of Louise’s passing. I knew Louise and Bruno beginning in the early 1980s and became good friends of them both. I wish her family the best in remembrance. Hugs and love, AT Mann
