Her fascination with Celtic culture has kept her in Ireland and Great Britain for years, and her Buddhist studies has led to extended residence in Asia.

May 24, 2004 by Courtney Roberts READ TIME: 9 mins. These kinds of questions inspired me to write Visions of The Virgin Mary: An Astrological Analysis of Divine Intercession. The Divine Feminine in Christianity is an inspiring and provocative theme, challenging the dominance of male deities within the contemporary Christian "pantheon. The irony is that historically, Goddess worship has always been a big part of Christianity. In pursuing the answers, I've come to believe that astrology provides some distinct advantages when examining the complex and confusing subject of mystical experiences.

The Intercession of the Theotokos, or the Protection of Our Most Holy Lady Theotokos and Ever-Virgin Mary, is a feast of the Mother of God celebrated in the Eastern Orthodox and Byzantine Catholic Churches. The feast celebrates the protection afforded the faithful through the intercessions of the Theotokos (lit. Mother of God, the Eastern title of the Virgin Mary). In the Slavic Orthodox Churches it is celebrated as the most important solemnity besides the Twelve Great Feasts and Pascha

An excellent resource for astrologers interested in the Marian apparitions. Ms. Roberts provides birth charts of the visionaries and event charts of the apparitions, enabling independent research. Her writing is clear, direct, measured in tone and carefully notes correlations without claiming too much. Her historical and contextual narratives are very helpful. Unless you expect an overly simple, “magic” formula, this book is uniquely valuable to astrologers.

A look at a mysterious phenomenon by an intelligent investigator. Adds to the conversation about these apparitions with scholarly historical details, sometimes separating these from the catholic spin created, apparently, to reinforce standard church teaching at the expense of fact. Examined with the lense of astrological data, though just the factual information is worth the read with or without the astrology she describes, previous knowledge of which is not assumed.I recommend the book as unique and informative.

I received this item in good shape and in a reasonable amount of time. Satisfied with my purchase.

Marion apparitions have been a cultural phenomenon for hundreds of years. There have been many scholarly studies of these phenomena - which look at socio-political context of the sightings, potential economic reasons for the sightings, possible psychological reasons for the sightings, etc. (A good academic analysis is Encountering Mary).

This book asks whether astrology and celestial events may be a reason for the sightings. Even though I don't agree with all of the analysis here, I personally find these various explanations interesting. And, since I know very little about astrology, this book was a good opportunity to learn a little about both phenomena (the visions of Mary, and astrology).

There are many studies which demonstrate we are strongly affected by the moon, the stars, the tides, the seasons... so to me, this is a fair question. Are we more open to spiritual experience during certain times of the calendar, or during certain celestial events? Are these "hallucinations" coincide with the celestial calendar? Or, is it possible (as the author concludes) that events are happening in the stars themselves to cause these mass sightings.

If you are an open minded person with a sincere interest in these subjects, then I suspect you will enjoy this work.

This work is a well-researched and well-documented account of nineteenth and twentieth century visions and sightings of the Virgin Mary, including the familiar Bernadette at Lourdes and Fatima.
Although this book is not intended to be an astrology text, there is a comprehensive glossary of astrological terms as well as basic explanations of various astrological principles interspersed throughout the text. Thus, a reader need not be familiar with astrological concepts in order to understand and enjoy the text. The stories of the sightings are very rich in detail.
Although the book carries a subtitle of "An Astrological Analysis of Divine Intercession", the analysis boils down to a preponderance of Virgo and Cancer in the 44 charts involved as well as a prominence of the Nodes of the Moon. While the author fully acknowledges that more questions are raised than are answered, the subtitle suggests that more astrological commonalities would be presented in such a book. The conclusion about Virgo and Cancer as the primary signs involved in such phenomena is hardly surprising. Anyone familiar with astrology knows that Virgo represents the archetype of the "Virgin" and Cancer, the "Mother".
Roberts really summarizes in terms of her philosophical perspective about the place of such visions within different cultures and religions. The basic message is that regardless of religious perspective or culture, we should all get along. There's nothing wrong with that message, and it is the main one that Roberts wants us to take away from her work. Her accounts of the Marian visions are rich, compelling, fascinating, and enjoyable. From a purely astrological perspective, there are few substantial conclusions, which indicates that this work is the beginning of more to come.

I found this book only two days ago and I am already thankful to have done so. One reviewer wrote in about astrology being against the teaching of Jesus. Reader's take note, this is not a christian book. This is a Marian book, about Mary, for Mary. Many people see the Blessed Virgin as Goddess, not simply the mother of christ. This book will take you through the apparitions of Mary at Lourdes, Fatima, and many others. I feel that with this work, Llewyllyn Publications is finally printing things worth while instead of the same old dribble over and over again under a different title. If you are a follower of Mary and want to experience her in your life to the fullest then buy this book, while it won't be an end all do all say all complete guide to this Blessed Goddess it will assist you on your journey. Peace and Prayers be with you.
