The book's subtitle is:The Planets in Color, Meaning, Picture, and Symbol. It's an astrological study of planetary influences. There are 55 color illustrations by the author. The author tells us in the first chapter that the Study of the Planets grew out of a Study of Color. Much of this study was done in what has been referred to as the 'diamond consciousness' in the Agni Yoga books. This has to do with being conscious of both the Mundane World and the Subtle World at the same time. This is the moment between sleep and waking. He quotes an Agni Yoga book: We intensify and deepen these diamond moments through a clear understanding of their significance. Indeed, they are so brief that no effort is required. Prolonged communication with the Subtle World can be achieved, but simultaneous awareness of the two worlds is momentary. Each human being has the power to experience this moment that connects the two worlds, but for this one must develop a subtle awareness. All recollections of the Subtle World are extremely useful in human evolution. The author goes on to say: In the writing of this book the symbols, images, colors, and brief scenes that tell us something about the qualitative energy of the planets came from a source other than my own intellect. Upon receiving an image, my usual thought was, I never would have thought of that. Often my reaction was a negative one, such as, I can't use this, this doesn't make sense, or, this is too shocking, people will never understand this, or, this must apply to something else. As the author gave due thought and meditation to the colors and images, however, he saw how meaningful and insightful the images are. The author presents his insights on each of the ten planets, plus the Earth, Vulcan, and five of the asteroids. The Divine Feminine as an energy conveyed by the asteroids Ceres, Pallas-Athena, and Vesta came as an awakening experience to the author, revealing a profound saintliness of women that had an altering effect on his own life. Early on in the writing of this book, the author was informed in the diamond consciousness that THIS BOOK HAS TWO AUTHORS. That raised more questions than it answered, but eventually he was able to have a deep experience with the other author whom he came to call Little Bird. It is, however, not a dictated or channeled work, yet it is a joint effort. Being an artist, the author writes, I took a cursory look into color early on in my esoteric studies, but that did not go very far at all. Many years later I ventured forth to knock again. This time, I'm very happy to say, doors opened. Color is a joyous and wonderful Mystery, which happens to be both an Art and a Science, both Consciousness and Form.
