THE MAKING OF SAGES: A PRIMER
FOR LEARNING BASIC
VOL I, VOL II & III
by P.M. Dussman
VOLUME I: Many people interested in learning astrology open
books eager to learn only to slam them shut after the first chapter or two. Why?
The initial depth of the subject matter that needs to be memorized in the very
beginning of this important life journey is often glossed over way too fast in
most beginner books.
I wrote this book for anyone wanting to learn
basic astrology, but felt they could not, because most of the beginner books did not
present the basics in a simple, primary way.
This book is written
in textbook style with narrative chapters, practical application lessons,
quizzes and tests. It is written in simplistic language with illustrations for
the beginning student. This text
is combined with a workbook, which can be used by both students and teachers.
The chapter narratives are written to engage the reader as though they have the
teacher right there with them.
The practical application workbook lessons
in Volume I teach the signs,
symbols, planets, and houses. Each lesson introduces key terms appropriate for
the beginner. Included in each lesson are practice work sheets, quizzes and suggested readings.
You will learn the
signs, planets, houses, glyphs, planetary motion, the branches of astrology,
rulerships, the definitions of the signs and houses and the natural or flat
This book does not
assume previous knowledge of the subject matter by the student. 137 pages: $35.00 US

In Volume II, the chapters and lessons build upon the fundamental components
that need to be learned in their proper sequence. This is a building block
process with each succeeding Volume I, II, III building in the complexity of the material.
Volume I and II do not
jump ahead to interpret a natal chart until the student is saturated in the
You will learn the
dualities (masculine/positive & feminine/negative qualities), Quadruplicities, Triplicities, Essential dignities, the
angular, succedent and cadent houses, the summation box, with plenty practice
work sheets and final quiz for this book. 197 pages: $35.00

In Volume III you will learn how to
use an Ephemeris to find the planetary positions. You will learn about
retrograde motion and how to spot retrograde planets in an Ephemeris. You will
learn how to aspect the planets and transits step-by-step. You will learn about
the major aspects and how to aspect an entire horoscope.
You will learn that Astronomy is the science
that makes up the physical or natural foundations of astrology. Few books in
basic astrology seldom, if ever, begin with a chapter on the astronomy in
astrology. Yet this fundamental knowledge is very necessary if a student is
going to fully understand the rudiments for learning and understanding aspects,
transits, progressions and mathematically calculating a horoscope. Therefore, an
elementary introduction into simple astronomy is presented and you begin to
understand why astronomy and astrology are two sides to the same coin. The
chapter on the astronomy in astrology is presented in a concise, simplistic and
primary format with the understanding that most students would prefer to avoid
this area of astrology all together, but to every student's surprise, this
chapter will prove to be one of the most valuable, because it serves as part of
the basic foundation for learning astrology from the ground up.
You will become more acquainted with a Table
of Houses and an Ephemeris and what Sidereal Time or Star Time is and the
difference between Sidereal and Tropical Astrology. Many of the terms you hear
often in astrology such as Northern and Southern Hemispheres, ecliptic, the
Earths' Equator, etc, will be explained.
