"The change in daytime or night-time Firdaria will not affect the planet’s meanings and general significations."

Serving as a supplement for A Tiny Universe, this accompanying volume provides tremendous additional reading, giving those with questions on the original book some clarity and those with greater curiosity much more information to digest. The book examines many interpretations of astrological data that have been forgotten to time, but which are starting to come back into influence, such as the importance of planetary sect, the infinity-shaped lemniscate, and the Persian Firdaria. The Firdaria, to which almost a third of the book is dedicated, provides different understandings based on whether a person is born during the day or night and allows for planets to rule different periods of life while still obeying the Chaldean Order. With this as a follow-up or reference guide to the original book, one can fully understand the history and origins of astrological insight.

Twice as long as the first book, this companion volume leaves no stone unturned, offering a ground-floor comprehension of potential resurging trends in astrology. Just like the book before it, data is presented both in text form and also with various tables, charts, and real-world examples in the form of insights on Venus and Serena Williams, Marlon Brando, and Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Read on its own, this book chooses to bypass a lot of the more basic tenets of astrology, and so it seems to be designed more as an advanced text—one geared primarily for those who already have a good grasp of the information in the original. Thorough, complete, and still presented in a way that doesn’t overwhelm but merely expands the reader’s existing horizons and knowledge, this book is the logical next step for anyone with a curiosity to know as much as possible about astrology.
