00 Bibliography

Reader Bluekasia suggested that we add a Bibliography, which I think is an excellent idea! I added the double Zeros to the title so it would appear at the Top of the List of Categories on the right-hand side of the page. If you click on a specific post you won’t see the List of Categories. You have to go to the “home” page, https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/, to see it.

I’ll add the titles and annotations to this page as I get to them, which means I’ll be modifying this page pretty frequently. You won’t get an email when I modify it, but when I do I’ll mention it in the then-current blog post (if you’re following, you’ll get an email for the post). I’ll add only the books that have been Fundamental to my own Education. I’ll keep them sorted by author’s last name. I won’t add info about the publisher unless it’s hard to find…


Angeles Arrien, The Tarot Handbook: Practical Applications of Ancient Visual Symbols, 1987.

I have no idea whether other Astrologers have independently discovered the Connection between the Major Arcana of the Tarot and the Angles or Aspects of astrology, but it was while following Dr. Arrien’s suggestion, to draw and study a card every day for a year, that I realized that there was a perfect Correlation between the Tarot and the astrological Harmonics. For instance, consider the 2nd Harmonic, 360/2=180°, the Opposition. In Tarot the 2nd Arcana is the Priestess, guardian of Tradition. In astrology the Opposition is about Duality, Debate, Either/Or, Right and Wrong, which Traditions Define. The 3rd Harmonic, 360/3=120°, is The Empress or Love with Wisdom in the Tarot, and the Trine or Effortless Grace in astrology. The 4th Harmonic, 360/4=90°, is the Emperor or Dominion in Tarot, and the Square or Mastery through Challenge in astrology. The Tarot tidily defines all of the unnamed Minor Angles, up to the 20th and 21st Harmonics, 360/20=18°(Timelessness) and 360/21=17°9′ (Universal Connectedness).


Camilla Blossom, Sacred Spirits of Gaia: Co-Creating a New Earth with Fairies, Elementals, Ancestors and Spirits of Land, 2022.

Most of the many books I’ve read that Aspire to this are more like dictionaries or catalogs. They help us tell the difference between a Sylph and a Gnome, but they don’t help us Experience either one. This book is Alive. I don’t usually like books with “Exercises,” because the Exercises detract from what I’m Learning by Reading. If I really want to Immerse myself in the Subject, I’ll do the Exercises, but if the Exercises don’t snag me in Dimensions Higher than the Mind, I end up putting the book down. This book goes right to the Heart. When I read this “Exercise” on page 27…

I am green-blue Mother Earth or Gaia, Sophia, Terra. Feel my earthly nourishing love rise up into your body. I am an evolving multi-dimensional being that connects with your nervous system through my Crystalline Grid – a vast light communication network. Connect with me now and become one with my spirit. We co-create a loving new earth when we rise together.”

I was Surprised and Delighted that I Felt it immediately in my Bones, and when I looked out the window to check on the Moon a while later, I was looking at the Moon through a Crystalline Lattice that arched over my back yard. It was like looking at the Moon through the bare branches of a Tree that were wet from a recent rain, the Moonlight refracted by the Water. I had to think for a few minutes to remember how far the neighbor’s Cherry Tree stretched over our yard. Not nearly that far. It was Summer – the branches weren’t bare. It hadn’t rained. And these “branches” were as Clear as a flawless Diamantine Quartz, sparkling in the Moonlight. I Smiled to myself and went on my way.


Richard Brautigan, In Watermelon Sugar, 2002 (1968).

A totally Engrossing and Fabulous Story about Ego Death, represented by the Tigers that roam the Woods that the protagonist is wandering in, and his Existential Reactions to his Alienation from the Empty Culture he was Living in (the US in the 1950s).


R. Ogilvie Crombie (ROC), Encounters with Nature Spirits: Co-creating with the Elemental Kingdom, 2018

“ROC” will be well known to anyone familiar with the Findhorn Story (see “Findhorn” below). Like Michael Roads (see “Roads” below), ROC spent much of his Life Communicating with Pan, which the charming short chapters in this collection chronicle. Some of the more interesting parts are when Pan takes ROC through earlier phases of his Life so ROC can retroactively make sense out of many of his earlier Intuitions about Earth Chakras and Ley Lines.


The Findhorn Community and William Irwin Thompson, The Findhorn Garden: Pioneering a New Vision of Man and Nature in Cooperation, 1976

Essential reading about the foundations of 5D agriculture and Consciously Collaborating with the Forces of Nature. Fundamental 5D.


Arthur Firstenberg, The Invisible Rainbow: A History of Electricity and Life, 2017, 2020.

With References filling 170 pages, from Ben Franklin’s kite with a key to Elon Musk’s thousands of Satellites with ISPs, Arthur rigorously documents the interactions between Electricity and Human Consciousness – and the Unconscious – and details the “mysterious” illnesses that have resulted. Much of the Story is about how the Medical Cartel suppresses this ongoing Herstory, driving it into the Unconscious. “All doctors of oriental medicine know this, except that they call that energy ‘qi’ or ‘chi.’ It flows from the sky to the earth, and it circulates through our meridians and gives us life. It is electricity. You cannot contaminate the global electrical circuit with millions of pulsed, modulated electronic signals without destroying all of life. The… engineering perspective fails… [because of] the error that our [Chemist ] ancestors made in 1800, the terrible decision to treat electricity as a foreign element, a strange beast that operates outside the laws of nature. We acknowledge the existence of electricity only to the extent that it does work for us; otherwise we pretend that it’s not there” (p.391).


Orion Foxwood, The Faery Teachings, revised 2007.

I find that many Teachings are like Religions, they prescribe Right and Wrong Ways to Think and Do, and while I respect many of these as very valuable Guardians of Ancient Systems of Lore, I don’t usually choose to dive deeply into them because I’m more interested in Both/And than Either/Or, more interested in developing my own Intuitive approach to the World than following someone else’s, and my deeper Senses tell me that this is how 5D will Work, as do many of my Trusted terrestrial sources. The Edge between Teaching the Value of a Tradition and Teaching its Rules, can be thin, but Orion does an excellent job of Offering the Traditions and Rituals of his Southern Appalachian Seership Crafts, and rooting them in the Traditions of Celtic Europe, without proselytizing. As he says in his introductory Note to the Reader, “My true prayer is that the reader will find spiritual insight for themselves and a motivation to heal the damage that [huperity] has made to our beloved earth and the world of nature. In these actions, we can rest assured that we [hupers] will find our true spiritual nature.” In the Enlightenment Post there’s a link to a Conversation (more than Interview) with a friend and peer, and his Respect for the Sovereignty of his audience is Impressive.

See Collen Marquist…


Eugene Gendlin, Let Your Body Interpret Your Dreams, 1966, 2011

A fabulous Primer on Support for Magnetic Creativity, and on Energetic Healing, though it’s cast as a Dream-Interpretation book, and an Excellent one. More to follow…


Genia Pauli Haddon, Body Metaphors: Releasing God-Feminine in Us All, 1988.

In this book and its companion, Uniting Sex, Self and Spirit : Let the Body by Your Guide to New Consciousness and Deeper Spirituality in a Changing Age (1993), Genia lays out her Ingenious hypothesis that rather than just the Matriarchy and the Patriarchy, we’re actually Living four Ages, and currently shifting from the second to the third. The four Ages are the Yin Feminine, the Yang Masculine, the Yang Feminine, and the Yin Masculine. In the Physio-Psychological tradition (she’s a trained Jungian analyst), she refers to the parallels between the Yin Feminine and the Receptive Vagina and Gestative Womb, between the Yang Masculine and the Thrusting Aggression of the Phallus, between the Yang Feminine and Powerful Exertive Birthing of the Uterus, and between the Yin Masculine and the Supportive Seed-Storage function of the Testicles.


Timothy Hass, The Wonder-Full World of the Home, 2020.

A short book introducing us to all of the Fairies and other Disincarnate Entities that do all of the real work maintaining our House and Landscape, and how to Co-Create with them – easy and rewarding Practice for 5D. Very Fun to read. A sample (pp.5-6)… “The most helpful, powerful, needful thing you can do for the world is being a Light right where you are. I don’t mean this to sound narcissistic, but how you are in your native environment has a profound effect. The mere fact of standing in joy, in love, in honor of the life and things around you, radiates a powerful influence. We are like oysters transforming, through our intention, the grit of everyday annoyances and challenges into a pearl of Light. These are the pearls Indra strings together to make her planetary necklace of blessing and healing.” Then he shows us exactly how to do that, in particular by making a Sanctuary of our Home. Timothy is a mentee of David Spangler, and his describes David’s Incarnational Spirituality in an easy-to-grasp way.


Julie Henderson, The Lover Within: Opening to Energy in Sexual Practice, 1987, 1999.

This book is about Energy, not Sex, so don’t be fooled by the subtitle. It does cover Sexual Energy in some ways, but that’s not the emphasis. If you want to focus on the Sex, try Anne Stirling Hasting’s books (Reclaiming Healthy Sexual Energy, or Discovering Sexuality that Will Satisfy You Both). Julie’s book is a fabulous tool for Learning how to Manipulate your own Energy Body, which is Important for Healing Processes, Self-Awareness, and Intuition. Of course Healing, Self-Awareness, and Intuition are great for Improving Sex too.


Gay Hendricks, The Big Leap: Conquer Your Hidden Fear and Take Life to the Next Level, 2009

An indispensable book that covers many Karmic Self-Sabotages that we didn’t know we had, and how to correct them. Gay describes it as moving from your Zone of Excellence to your Zone of Genius. I make a point of rereading this 200-page book every few years, and every time I do I make breakthroughs. The Upper Limits Problem – we Unconsciously do something to Sabotage ourself whenever we have more Success than we’re Comfortable with. This is worth more than half the book, and in the process he dispenses with Worry, Blame and Criticism, Illness and Accidents, Arguments, Mask-Wearing, and other Upper Limit symptoms. Identifying your Zone of Genius (where your work never feels like “work”) and Committing to it. The Ultimate Success Mantra. Einstein Time – how to Create as much as you want. The Magic Question for Creating Time. Making Relationships Intimate.

Bob (in Colonizer Queensland) has found two YouTubes where Gay presents many of the concepts of The Big Leaphttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cNBoeZWob2g and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXMwkktmABw. These come with a long column of other videos of Gay’s.


Gay Hendricks and Carol Kline, Conscious Luck: Eight Secrets to Intentionally Change Your Fortune, 2020

Essential reading for 5D, and anybody Working to Let Go of their Self-Sabotaging Karma. One of the more Profound chapters is “THE THIRD SECRET – Transform Shame into a Magnet for Abundance.” Partly because it’s a Master at Hiding and Showing Up in places that don’t seem to have any Relationship to Shame, it’s very difficult to Track Down. The other seven “Secrets” are no less Transformative. The final note in the book is an Emergency Luck Repair Technique – which works! The only thing I’d add is that, when you take your three long breaths after using this Technique, keep your mouth shut and Breathe Through Your Nose. That’ll also Trigger your Vagus Nerve and Raise your Kundalini Energy.


Natha Jay, Walking in Both Worlds: Personal Stories and Practical Guidance on Spiritual Development, 2018

The second book of a trilogy including Waking Up Indigo: Personal Stories and Practical Guidance on Spiritual Awakening, 2016/2019 and What’s Next: Personal Stories and Practical Guidance on Spiritual Embodiment, 2021. A literal Guidebook to Ascension. The books are short (125 or so pages) and concise, and mostly divided into chapters that are one or a few pages long, so they’re ideal for reading a chapter or two a day. Definitely not something to speed-read! I wouldn’t call the chapters Heavy, but they’re definitely Profound. More like Lightening, both in the sense of Feeling Lighter and in the sense of Getting Zapped with Sudden Lightning Epiphanies that tie together whole issues that previously felt Separate. Even after 60+ years of reading daily, these books are Teaching me a lot. I’m avoiding finishing the third one because I don’t want the Experience of reading it to end (or maybe because I’m not Ready for it yet).


Aurelia Louise Jones, The Seven Sacred Flames, 2007-2020

This book evokes a very Still Silence, as it seems to Radiate Spirit and Love. It describes the Seven Rays, their Purposes, their Colors, their “Chohans” or Spiritual Honchos, and the many Ascended Ones in the Spiritual Universe who perform any number of roles to assist Huperity’s Ascension, with Channelings from many of them. Lord Germain signs the Preface, for instance. Bear in mind that this whole book is a Metaphor, not a Religion. To the 2D Mind, everything is a Metaphor, because the Real World, to the extent that it is “Real,” is far too Multidimensional for 2D to comprehend, and far too Unitary for Separation-Specialized 2D to Grok. The book speaks directly to the Heart instead, and it does so with Spectacular Success.


Ursula K. Le Guin, Buffalo Gals and Other Animal Presences, 1987

One of a number of Ursula’s many fabulous books in several genres. This one is a collection of short stories and poems that fully Demonstrate her Profound Respect for All Things, and her Animation of Nature. Reanimating Nature is a fundamental prerequisite to Resolving and Shifting our Imminent Climate-Change Demise as a dysfunctional Civilization and a functioning Species. My favorite stories in here are Buffalo Gals Won’t You Come Out Tonight, which Teaches us a lot about the Arrogance of Hupeople, and Vaster than Empires and More Slow, about the Group Consciousness of a Forest on an “uninhabited” planet. These stories appear in several other compendia of hers. This is my second-favorite Le Guin book after the six volumes of her Earthsea Trilogy.


Ursula K. Le Guin, The Earthsea Trilogy, 1968-2014.

The most compelling Hero’s Journey I know of. Seven books, each better and Deeper than the last – A Wizard of Earthsea, The Tombs of Atuan, The Farthest Shore, Tehanu, Tales from Earthsea, The Other Wind, and The Daughter of Odren.


Ellias Lonsdale, 360 Degrees of our Star Destiny: A Zodiac Oracle, 2021.

Amazing book, appears to be written just for this Ascension time. Lonsdale worked with both Marc Edmond Jones and Dane Rudhyar to master Marc’s Sabian Symbols before getting these Chandra Symbols Channeled. In the Acknowledgements he dedicates the book partly to “those in future generations who will know what to do with a text that is too strong for us ‘old ones’ but just right for you” (p.xi), and is that ever true. Be sure to read the Introduction: The Creation of the Star Sparks (p.1ff) to see how incredible the process of Channeling the readings was! A typical format describes the Challenges of the Degree in most of the page, then in the last paragraph adds the probable Resolution or SuperPower. The summaries on the internet don’t include the all-important last paragraph. I’ve reduced each page to a line or two, trying to capture the general drift when I mention the Degrees, but my short Summaries are just mnemonics and in no way substitute for the book. If you’re still in Blame or Victim, this will be a very difficult Adventure for you, so pay particular Attention to any reading that you React Negatively to.


Collen Marquist and Jack Frasl, Crystalline Communion 2000, 1999.

Collen’s Intuitive Interpretations of the effect of Crystals, Minerals, and Stones agree with my own Intuitive Interpretations (when I have them), and with my own use of Crystals in Real Life, so often, particularly when compared to other common Crystal books, that I trust her Wisdom completely. Jack, rest his Soul, was the Geologist and Collector of the pair. More coming soon,,,


Thomas Mayer, Answering the Call of the Elementals: Practices for Connecting with Nature Spirits, 2008, translated 2021.

A small book, but like Camilla Blossom’s book above, this is a Fairy book that’s Alive, not just a Catalog. Sample… having trouble Connecting with your House Fairies (see Timothy Hass, above)? Imagine a Pentagram, like the end of a house with a peaked roof. Got that in your mind’s eye? Now, as you look at it, do you see any Eyes looking back? Say Hi and Wave. Some of them will Create a Sudden Powerful Burst of Love in your Heart, they’re so Happy to be Acknowledged. Most of the book, Thomas talks about his Travels, Teachings, and Channelings around Europe, Healing old War Wounds and the many Landscape Travesties inflicted by the Left-Brains, including meetings with Adriatic Giants worried that the Left-Brains were destroying so much of Nature that they would no longer be able to Animate It. Engrossing, it’s hard to put the book down. Thomas is a mentee of Rudolf Steiner.


Robert Moss, The Three “Only” Things: Tapping the Power of Dreams, Coincidence, & Imagination, 2007.

A wonderful eye-opening book about how the Patriarchy has Suppressed our Intuition and our Access to the Unconscious by Programming us as Children that our Intuition should be Ignored because it’s “Only Coincidence” or “Only a Dream” or “Only Your Imagination.” A tiny sample from opening the book at random to p.172… “We get stuck, and we bind ourselves to the wheel of repetition, because we refuse to reimagine our situation. We live in a set of negative or confining images and pronounce them ‘reality.’ We do this because we let ourselves get trapped in a particular version of the past or in a consensual hallucination. We do it to cling to the familiar, not daring to give up what we are or have been for what we are meant to become.”


John Perkins, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, 2005, 2016, 2023.

John Learned Indigenous Wisdom while Immersed in Native Amazon Culture in the Peace Corp. He was later recruited by the Military-Industrial-Congressional Complex to spread American-Style Colonialism around the World, which he did for many years. The third edition, due out in late February 2023, covers China’s adaptation of American-Style Colonialism. John has also published several other remarkable and highly recommended books about Reanimating Nature, including Shape Shifting: Shamanic Techniques for Global and Personal Transformation, and Psychonavigation: Techniques for Travel Beyond Time. He knows more, from Personal Experience, about What’s Wrong with the World, and How to Fix It, than anyone I’ve ever encountered.


John Perkins, The World Is As You Dream It: Teachings from the Amazon and the Andes, 1994, et al.

Before he became an Economic Hit Man, John was a Peace Corps volunteer in the South American Amazon jungles and the Andes Mountains. While there, and afterwards, he studied the Worldview and Shamanic Techniques of his hosts. His books on this include The World Is As You Dream It,

The Stress-Free Habit: Powerful Techniques for Health and Longevity from the Andes, Yucatan, and the Far East, 1989.
Shapeshifting: Shamanic Techniques for Global and Personal Transformation, 1997.
Psychonavigation: Techniques for Travel Beyond Time, 1999.
Touching the Jaguar: Transforming Fear into Action to Change Your Life and the World, 2020.

These are all intense books, including compelling stories about his adventures, and Clear instructions for repeating the Shamanic techniques. John’s objective, as made clear in The World Is As You Dream It, is to Convert Western Civilization to a Sustainable Worldview that Respects Nature and the Earth.


Tanya Harter Pierce, Outsmarting Your Cancer: Alternative Non-Toxic Treatments That Work, 2004-2009.

This book is a veritable Encyclopedia of Alternative and Complementary Cancer Treatments that MDs are prohibited from talking about, and are Non-Toxic, unlike the standard three Treatments that the Medical Cartel offers. Nobody’s trying to Convince anybody to Choose one Approach or another, the book just takes 21 Non-Toxic Treatments, old ones and new ones, that have Eliminated Cancer, not just the symptoms, and not just for a while, but since the Treatment, for some people. It describes each Treatment, where and how to get it, which of the many Cancers it’s worked well for, and whether it is useful as a Complement rather than an Alternative, to the Big Three. It also includes chapters on Alkalinity and Acidity, Hormones, Teeth, Fear, Mind-Body Unity (Mind and Body are not separate Systems, they’re Different Perspectives on the Unitary Huper!), and the processes of Evaluation, Choice, and Progress Monitoring, plus an audio CD on “How Twelve Ordinary People Outsmarted Their Cancer.” We’ve studied Cancer for many years, but we discovered how Limited our Information was when my brother was diagnosed with it several years back. Had we known about this book, we’d have been much more helpful to him, both in terms of his Comfort and his Informedness. He taught Pharmacology to Medical Students, so he was thoroughly invested in Standard Treatments, but he was also Open-Minded and Thorough enough to be Open to reading it and put to work whatever he found useful in it. It may not have saved his Life, but it certainly would have been useful to him.


Michael J. Roads, Through the Eyes of Love Trilogy: Journeying with Pan, 2008-2013.

Describing a Lifetime of being accompanied much of the time by Pan, half Goat and half Huperson, God or Overlighting Deva of Nature, and embodiment of the 15th Harmonic (Angles of 24 Degrees). Without ever actually using the term, Michael is the only author I know of that actually describes 5D, as opposed to using the term as undefined Rhetoric. Fabulous books, mandatory reading for understanding the Relationship between Climate Change et al and the Disanimation of Nature. These books are more or less summarized in his Stepping … Between … Realities, which I also recommend, but you’ll Learn so much more from these. It’s like the difference between reading A Midsummer Night’s Dream and reading the CliffNotes on it. They’re both very useful, but the Stories are so much Richer.


Marshall Rosenberg et al, Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life: Life-Changing Tools for Healthy Relationships, 3rd edition 2015.

Essential for Direct and Noninvasive Communication. The first act of the current CEO of Microsoft was to have all of his top executives read this book. Short introduction in the Community and Accountability post. The fundamental cornerstone of the 15-book series called Nonviolent Communication Guides, including Nonviolent Communication Companion Workbook; Nonviolent Communication Toolkit for Facilitators; Getting Past the Pain Between Us; Being Me, Loving You; The Heart of Social Change; Practical Spirituality; What’s Making You Angry?; The Surprising Purpose of Anger; Parenting From Your Heart; Raising Children Compassionately; Teaching Children Compassionately; Humanizing Health Care; and Dementia Together.


Richard Rudd, The Gene Keys et al

A whole set of books comprising an Encyclopedic Merger of astrology with the I Ching and most of the rest of the Perennial Wisdom, that seems to be as Dedicated to Self-Loving Ascension as Lonsdale’s book above. Amazing stuff, but I’m just getting started with it, so I’m in no position to say much else about it. Check out some of the overwhelmingly-positive reviews on Amazoo if you want.

Natha Jay (see the note above on her great books, or https://walkinginbothworlds.com/home/) has contributed a review: “Oddly enough, I just completed Guide Training for the Gene Keys. I’m still not sure if I can describe it… but it’s worth a go! The Gene Keys isn’t just a book, it’s a life-long companion, guiding us deeper into our own potential, through gentle contemplation. It explains how each shadow can transform into a gift, and eventually into something higher than the 3D plane, called a Siddi. The art of contemplation comes naturally to some, while others can learn this new way of processing the world. It is gentle transformation. Pure magic.”


Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala: The Cycle of Transformations and Its 360 Symbolic Phases, 1974.

Rudhyar’s interpretation of Marc Edmond Jones’s Sabian Symbols in Astrology, 1993.


Dane Rudhyar, The Lunation Cycle: A Key to the Understanding of Personality, 1967.

The fundamental Template for astrological Cycles.


Starhawk, Truth or Dare: Encounters with Power, Authority, and Mystery, 1987.

The adjectival form of Power is Politics, and Politics is Defined by Either/Or. Spirit on the other hand is Both/And. This is the quintessential statement about Politics, differentiating Power-Over (2D) from Power-With (5D). Politics is also the adjectival form of Ego. It’s not just the Patriarchy that’s Dying, it’s also 2D Either/Or Scientism. The Political isn’t just between People, it’s also between Ego and Soul. One of the features of the book is its 7-chapter Discussion of Inanna, the Goddess who Descends into Rebirth, and how that applies to our own Experience. The Bottom-Line book for Meeting Other in all its Forms – the Virgo-Libra-Scorpio quarter of the Zodiac, one of the most Foundational books I’ve ever read.


Iyanla Vanzant, Trust: Mastering the Four Essential Trusts, 2015.

Just starting this book, but it’s about Trust in Self, Trust in God, Trust in Others, and Trust in Life.


Zach Weiss, Restoring Our Water Cycle to Regenerate Earth, 2021.
