by Robert Zoller
Dating from antiquity, the doctrine of the Arabic parts has been virtually lost to Western astrological practice since the 17th century. In his book, Robert Zoller retrieves this valuable key to prediction and provides a clear and simple guide to its practical application.
The Arabic parts enable the astrologer to investigate the "inner"
meaning of the horoscope and thus to go beyond the "outer" aspects
expressed by the arrangement of the planets, signs, and houses. The
first section of the book explains how fate, or karma, can be
understood through the parts and the esoteric nature of number. The
second section includes a translation of the 13th century
Latin text on the parts by the famed court astrologer, Bonatti; this
work includes the basic ninety-seven parts, dealing with all areas of
life - from war, commodities speculation, and professional life to
marriage and partnerships - in addition to seventy - three parts from
various medieval sources.
