One gets lost in a maze of conjecture when it comes to the reasons that led astrological tradition to invert the order of the houses. Let us pay homage to Jacques Dorsan, proponent of the astrological houses calculated in the clockwise direction, and also to Michel Gauquelin, who has opened the way, in his own unique manner, to respecting the daily clockwise movement of the stars as the basis for the houses. Dr. Jacques Halbronn, French scholar of astrology and author of Guide to the Astrological Life and The Alphabetical Catalog of French Astrological Texts Jacques Dorsan was the leading pioneer of sidereal astrology in France. Using more than eighty sidereal horoscopes, this book illustrates Dorsans clockwise house system. Most of the charts are from the original French edition, with many more added in this edition. The book embodies one of the most important astrological discoveries of twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Astrology normally views the twelve houses in astrology in a counterclockwise direction, the direction of the zodiac signs. According to Jacques Dorsan, however, we should view them in a clockwise direction.
Traditionally, Western astrologers have interpreted the houses as though they rotate in the same, counterclockwise direction as the zodiac signs. According to Jacques Dorsan, however, the houses are enumerated in a clockwise direction, following the daily diurnal motion of the Sun, for example. By using the clockwise house system together with the sidereal zodiac, everything suddenly falls into place astrologically when looking at a horoscope. This key unlocks the mystery of the horoscope. Thanks to Jacques Dorsan, we finally have access to a true form of astrologybased on the sidereal zodiac and utilizing the clockwise house systemenabling a giant leap forward in the practice of astrology. It allows us to recover the original astrology. This is possible today because of Rudolf Steiners indications, as well as the research of the French statistician Michel Gauquelin, who investigated hundreds of thousands of horoscopes and confirmed that the astrological houses run in a clockwise direction.
The Clockwise House System is an invaluable addition to the literature of modern astrology, allowing open-minded readers a unique and profound look at the new and limitless possibilities of this powerful tool of spiritual growth and understanding.
