This is an expanded version of a book first published in 1991. Among the content changes are: an ephemeris for the system that goes from 1900 to 2029, expanded delineations of the day-signs, and some content changes to the introductory chapters.
Now before we go any further, let’s mention what this book is not. First of all, it’s not yet another pop astrology gimmick. This system goes back into antiquity, though despite its rediscovery, the system is far from complete and there is more to be discovered.
Secondly, this is not a dated and fatalistic series of interpretations. It is psychologically sound and relevant to today. In fact, if you look up your own day-sign, I’m sure you’ll relate.
The system, as set forth here, is easy to follow. The twenty day-signs can be likened to a zodiac. There is a secondary cycle of thirteen numbers that adds to the day-sign and may deepen insights. These seem to operate something like the Western Moon-sign. This is kind of a cycle within a cycle that you relate back to the day-sign. You can even progress these to predict crisis points. And you can see the trecenna (or 13-day cycles) as active themes in the news or in the collective when they are operative.
Scofield writes very clearly. His delineations are insightful. His instructions are easy to follow. You may, in fact, be surprised at how this system operates and how easy it is to use.
Have a look! Even if you have the old edition, you might want to consider buying this one for the updated ephemeris and expanded delineations.
