After reading Dr. Gibson's book, I began to realize that something new and wonderful had been added to the lexicon of astrology and medicine. Seeing that these two sciences are over 2000 years old individually, I was impressed that Gibson was able to accomplish this feat within a short space of just over 200 pages. The basic premise that mankind and indeed all of reality is affected by a hidden order of forces which is only reflected in the movement of the stars and planets is groundbreaking. In testing this theory, Gibson applies a synthesis of astrology and behavioral science into an astonishly clear and eye-opening new technique which utilizes declinations and longitudinal aspects. He calls this technique "Modern Astrology". This work is sure to create quite a stir within both the astrological and medical fields and quite possibly, terms such grand elevation, binary eclipse, Hidek, and planetary index are likely to become very familiar phrases.<P! > The book was informative and very thought provoking. The fact that a psychiatrist came up with a way to plumb the depths of a portion of the birth chart which most astrologers eagerly avoid is a little surprising and perhaps somewhat disconcerting. In a word, the book is brilliant. We may never look at major depression, schizophrenia, addictions, anxiety disorders, or attention deficit disorders in the same way again.
