“Almost overnight, above all with the publication of his classic and still indispensable Astrology, Karma & Transformation, Stephen Arroyo established a new sensibility in contemporary astrology. Arroyo had assimilated the intellectual and spiritual currents of a new era, making earlier astrological books seem as if they had been written by quaint Victorians.… Since that remarkable beginning, each new book has revealed Arroyo’s deep intuitive grasp of astrology’s fundamentals, grounded in years of counseling experience. What stands out most throughout his work, and what impels so many to embrace his views as their own, is that Arroyo sees astrology as a powerful instrument of transformation—psychological, spiritual, relational. Every new publication by Arroyo is a signi�cant event for the �eld, and with Person-to-Person Astrology we receive the fruits of his past thirty years of observations on the astrology of human relations.” —Richard Tarnas, PhD, professor of philosophy and psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies and author of Cosmos and Psyche: Intimations of a New World View O B S A THER OOKS BY TEPHEN RROYO Exploring Jupiter Relationships & Life Cycles Astrology, Karma & Transformation Stephen Arroyo’s Chart Interpretation Handbook Astrology, Psychology & the Four Elements eISBN: 978-1-55643-973-5 Copyright © 2007 by Stephen Arroyo.

BF1708.1.A785 2007 133.5’863067—dc22 2007021760 v3.1_r1 Dedication To all the hundreds of people who contributed to this two-decade project, through suggestions, letters, questionnaire responses, or trusting openness in consultations or interviews. And also to the future generations, including Isaac, Rose, Ginger, and Lucas, in the hope that they will look un�inchingly at what astrology can o�er them to improve their understanding of themselves and others. Acknowledgments My greatest thanks go to Aina Kemanis, without whose encouragement, support, wide-ranging dialogues, research, editorial re�nements, and an occasional gentle push, this book would never have been completed. Also many thanks to Barbara Boyd, who proved to be the perfect editor for a specialized author writing a book for a broader public. Her combination of acute perception, superb language skills, humor, and penetrating criticism combined with tact made hours of editing work more fun than tedious. And also much gratitude to many others for their encouragement and intellectual support, and to Kathy Mullins and Jim Feil for helping make lengthy focused writing times possible.
