The Basics of Astrology
In the early thirties, Janduz* published Les 360 degrés du Zodiaque, an illustrated book based on the interpretation of the Volasfera by Antonio Borelli, but she restructured it and changed the sequence of several degrees. She also took into account the influence of the fixed stars and the Cabbala.
She did a very comprehensive and interesting work, and Astrotheme is proud to be the first website to offer it to the astrology world. We have fully reviewed the original texts and entirely rewritten them so they better fit the realities of the 21st century. In a few cases, we have kept the traditional terminology, which so exquisitely renders the quaint charm of those times.
If you're interested in the history of the symbolic degrees, please refer to our dedicated article.
Important disclaimer: symbolic degrees belong to a branch of fatalistic astrology. Their interpretation must be regarded with the utmost caution, especially given the fact that different authors give different meanings to symbolic degrees. This is of course the reason why they are not included in our Astrotheme reports. However, they might interest those who are fond of this very ancient and fatalistic form of astrology.
*Jeanne Duzéa (1874-1954) was a lady astrologer and one of the founders of the Centre for Astrological Studies of France. She authored many astrology textbooks. For some reason, her fame did not go beyond the circles of specialised practitioners.
