Astrology Plus by Hilarion Now Available

Dear Friends and Clients,

I am happy to announce that Astrology Plus by Hilarion, the book which I am always quoting from and has been out of print for some time, is now available as an EBook on Amazon.

If you are interested in downloading a copy you can use this link:

I will paste in below the Preface, which I wrote for the EBook edition, and the Introduction by Hilarion.

This book I believe will eventually revolutionize not only the practice of Astrology, but very well could transform the human perspective of life on this planet as we know it.

Preface to the EBook Edition of
Astrology Plus

By Steffan Vanel

I am happy to announce this publication in electronic form of Astrology Plus by Hilarion. This book has been out of print for some time and we at Marcus Books have decided to make it available again as an EBook.

In the near future we intend to compile all of the Astrological information received from Hilarion, which is spread throughout many of the books in the M.B.Cooke, Original Hilarion Series, and present that as a new and complete publication of Hilarion’s Astrological teachings.

In addition to being responsible for the production of these EBooks, I am also a practicing Astrologer. I have been working with the Hilarion material since I discovered it in 1982 and I can comfortably claim that, in my experience, this is the most incredible and valuable Astrological information on the planet at this time.

Much of what Hilarion says here parallels what can be ascertained from traditional Astrological sources, although Hilarion gives the very specific karmic lesson and significance behind those traditional understandings.

Other portions of this material contain insights which could never be deduced from the symbolism of traditional Astrology. And yet, in my years of practice with scores of clients I have seen the pronouncements of Hilarion validated with unfailing accuracy.

I have also used this information to not only look into the lives and experiences of my clients, but also to humbly accept my own lessons to be learned in this lifetime.

In the Introduction to this book the medium for Hilarion, Maurice Cooke, gives a helpful explanation of the basics of Astrology. He shares how Hilarion’s intention was to provide a source of Astrological information which could be read by the general public and not only by those who are serious students of Astrology.

This is, admittedly, a kind of ‘cook book’ on Astrology: the basic meanings of the planets in the Signs and Houses of Astrology. And yet, this is the most powerful and precise cookbook on Astrology I’ve ever come across in my many years of study.

One may still find it helpful to enlist the skills of a competent Astrologer who can perhaps further one’s ability to synthesize the specific meanings of Hilarion’s pronouncements in order to more fully understand the true significance of the living blueprint of any individual Astrological birth chart.

Present day Astrologers are aware that between 2012 and 2015 the planets Uranus and Pluto will square each other seven times. We have all noted the transformation and upheaval of old established structures and belief systems this has entailed, and is likely to continue to entail.

Uranus, the planet of the unusual and different, of sudden change out of the blue, and of freedom from old patterns that have outlived their purpose is also the planet which traditionally rules the Science of Astrology.

I have sensed how this re-publication of Astrology Plus, with perhaps an even wider public dissemination of its contents than previously took place, could in itself serve as a Plutonian/Uranian shake-up/transformation of established schools of contemporary Astrological understandings.

As Hilarion himself has stated in his introduction to the book:

This has never been revealed to mankind hitherto. But time has turned again to a new Age. The cycle of Aquarius is about to begin, and man is at last ready to understand truths additional to those he has already been given.


Steffan Vanel



The subject of Astrology is one which is very poorly understood by mankind at the present time. It is thought to be a system by which the meaning of life’s events can be understood. It is thought to be a program for the life in terms of timing and patterns which take place during the course of a lifetime. It is thought to be a symbolic description of the inner workings of the mind, the psyche and the personality. But none of these concepts goes to the heart of the astrological system.

In the distant past, when man was making his first appearance on the surface of the earth, the skies did not appear as they now do. The planets were different and had different orbits and periods. There was not the same form of correlation between planetary movements and events upon the earth that there now is. Indeed, very little of significance could have been read in the paths of the planetary bodies, even had man been intelligent or educated enough to discern the movements and geometry of the planets of the solar system.

But when the reincarnational arrangement was initiated, after the inter-breeding of men and angels about five million years ago, it was felt that the best way to teach man about himself and about the spiritual pilgrimage upon which he had embarked, was to cause the planetary bodies to reflect exactly the times and the spirit of the times through which he was living. In addition, it was decided to arrange the birth of each human being to coincide with a geometric pattern of planets which could be read by one properly instructed in order to derive some information about the nature of the incarnating soul, the likely development of the personality, and the most probable series of life-events that would take place.

Yet there is something far deeper to Astrology than these relatively straightforward facts. It is this: that the astrological system is a direct gift from the highest Creator to mankind. It is a gift which allows him to develop at all levels simultaneously — not only at the physical level where the personality is manifest, but also at the higher mental and astral planes, and those beyond. For it is not sufficient to improve the personality only. There must be an absorption of the improvement at the higher soul level, or what has been termed the higher self.

The planetary energies alone are capable of penetrating through the human being to his higher levels. Without the planetary positions and geometries, as the planets form various angles against the different signs of the zodiac, there would not be the easy communication of lessons and improvements upwardly through the various levels of man’s vehicles to the highest point.

It is the purpose of this book to set out in simplified form the meanings of the planets and other astrological symbols, not only for the lower mundane level of the personality, but for the higher self or soul as well. This has never been revealed to mankind hitherto. But time has turned again to a new Age. The cycle of Aquarius is about to begin, and man is at last ready to understand truths additional to those he has already been given.
