In this definitive book, Bernice Prill Grebner focuses on the decanates and their importance in taking chart interpretation to the next, and a much deeper, level. All 36 decanates are delineated in detail, including a complete explanation of every degree of every sign. Using both keywords and thorough explanations, she guides the reader through the physical, mental, and spiritual meanings of the decanates and also explains how to use the planetary rulers of the decanates in chart interpretation. Using these methods, you will gain fresh insights into each chart. One chapter is devoted to synastry and aspects and how the patterns of the decanates and dwads influence relationships, both initially and over time. Another chapter focuses on the houses and interpreting them through the use of the Ascendant's decanate. The author also disusses the influence of dwads and navamsas, and presents a system of individual degree meanings. Each of these is delineated for ease in interpretation and can be used with all planets in the chart.
