A new paradigm is emerging in Western civilization, led by transpersonal psychology, chaos and complexity theories, general evolution theory, and the human potential movement. Leading developmental researchers are extending psychology upwards, linking it with mystical states to embrace spirituality. Coordinating fields of information both new and old, integral theorists are creating a truly holistic approach to the many ways of knowing that are part of the human experience. Astrology should have its place among these disciplines: through the Dark Age when materialism reigned in Western culture astrology held aloft a light, reminding us that we do not live in a meaningless, mechanistic universe but within a meaningful, conscious cosmos. Yet for astrology to be fully recognized, astrologers need to have understanding about their field: where it has been, where it is, and where we might take it. In Integral Astrology, Armand M. Diaz, Ph.D., offers an exciting new way for astrologers to approach their ancient and diverse discipline. He emphasizes that there is not one astrology, but a number of astrologies, each of which expresses a particular place on the cultural landscape, an inner or outer orientation, and a stage of consciousness evolution. He shows how these diverse perspectives create a dynamic mosaic of astrological knowledge, and presents a model for a truly inclusive, integral astrology that honors both its traditions and innovations while also building bridges to other disciplines and ways of thinking.
