Unfortunately the "evidence of the science" of astrology didn't arrive until near the very end of the book. Consider this book a very long abstract, or perhaps a plea by the author to consider a certain mechanism that could explain astrology that has never been considered. One person found this helpful. The author, a professional astronomer, takes as his starting point the statistical associations documented by the Gauquelin's showing the influences of the various planets on professional achievement.

Astrology certainly runs contrary to the approach of science over the past .

Astrology certainly runs contrary to the approach of science over the past 300 years and more. Scientific success has bred arrogance, and media pundits with only the dimmest understanding of the history of ideas will speak derogatorily of astrology as a throwback to superstitious un-reason. Whilst this book focuses on the tropical zodiac, both frames of reference have their place in a larger astrology. Related to this theory is Dr Percy Seymour’s eloquent resonance theory, which points out that resonance can give wave forms power out of all proportion to their inherent energy.

Charles Harvey was both a Neo-Platonist and a lover of science. Charles's scientific mind drew him to the German astrological field of Cosmobiology, where he assisted in the translation of Ebertin's "Combination of Stellar Influences" into English.

Like Michel Gauquelin before him, Seymour's alignment with astrology predictably raised a storm of protest from several members of the scientific community when his book, Astrology: The Evidence of Science, appeared in April 1989. But I didn't expect the reaction to be so vehement or so irrational. Seymour brings to the astrology-science debate a rich body of experience and credentials

An explanation of the scientific theory behind astrology. It describes how magnetic currents or tides pervade the solar system, stemming from the sun and boosted by the planets on to earth, affecting all life. The author has also written " Cosmic Magnitude".
Contrary to the previous unnecessarily harsh review, this book is an interested and informed view on contemporary neo-astrology. The author, a professional astronomer, takes as his starting point the statistical associations documented by the Gauquelin's showing the influences of the various planets on professional achievement. And Yes, the author is English, since no American astrologer has bothered to take Gauquelin seriously. Likewise, most scientists dismiss astrology on purely ideological grounds--without, that is, having studied it. That's Chapters 1-5, along with some history. The main thesis begins with Chapter 6. "Just at the tides of the Moon in the upper atmosphere of Earth cause the measured lunar daily magnetic variation, so the tides of the planets in the magnetosphere, amplified by magnetic bays and estuaries [of the Sun] cause some of the variations of the magnetic filed that have already been detected but not yet studied in any detail. I propose that these variations [are] linked to...particular lines of force of the geomagnetic field that are 'in tune' with a particular planet...acting on the nervous system of individuals with the inherited characteristics associated with that particular planet...This, then, explains the Gauquelin planetary heredity effects." [p. 147]. Thus the author offers us a falsifiable scientific theory of neo-Astrology. To help appreciate this feat, remember the electromagnetic basis of our nervous system and the statistical association of high-tension lines (or cell phones) with cancer incidence. In addition to giving one pause to think, this work is a relief from the vague generalizations of American astrology, the formalism of Jungian Astrology and the empirical emptiness of Psychological Astrology
Anyone who has read Gauquelin should enjoy this book--and will have their eyes opened a little bit further while doing so.
I read this book several years ago. I explained how the "music of the spheres" function as well as give readers a detailed overview of how Solar-planetary magnetic waves affect life on Earth.
Short book. Easy read. Unfortunately the "evidence of the science" of astrology didn't arrive until near the very end of the book. Consider this book a very long abstract, or perhaps a plea by the author to consider a certain mechanism that could explain astrology that has never been considered.
