I am pleased to announce the launching of my thoroughly overhauled website at www.martingansten.com, with separate sections for academic and non-academic astrological content. The latter includes information on my Primary Directions course, consultations and books. Many thanks are due to Luís Ribeiro for giving generously of his time and knowledge to help me set this up!

Nicely done, Martin, and nice photo! But the site doesn't load nearly as fast as your old site, no doubt due to the graphics. And a new book coming: Annual Predictive Techniques of the Greek, Arabic and Indian Astrologers

Looking forward to it! The quote below is from your site about this soon-to-be-published book, but if you would prefer that this isn't posted for now, please let me know and I'll delete it from my post. (I hope the charts in this book will be circular along with the traditional illustrations which have a nice historical feel but are difficult to read.)

Quote:
Predictions for each year of life go back to the earliest times of Hellenistic astrology and were elaborated by the Persian and Arabic astrologers, who emphasized the revolution of the nativity, known today as the solar return. From the medieval Arabic-speaking world, these annual predictive techniques spread eastward into India and westward into Latin Europe, where they continued to evolve. For the first time, this book draws together material on annual predictions from ancient and medieval authors writing in Greek, Arabic and Sanskrit, and to a lesser extent Hebrew and Latin, demonstrating the techniques with a wealth of present-day example charts.

Thank you, Therese. I don't mind the plug at all, Wink and yes, the charts in the book will be circular. As for the website itself, I think the extra seconds it takes to load the pages are mostly to do with the webhost server, which has been very slow this past week. I hope that is just a temporary problem (or I shall have to consider moving the site elsewhere).
