Newest Addition To Astro*Carto*Graphy® Literature

We at Continuum have been pleased to observe a growing body of literature by people from around the world to expand our collective understanding of the many levels the Astro*Carto*Graphy maps operate. On this page, we will list some that we know about, but would welcome any additions, so long as these sources respect the A*C*G trademark guidelines.
 

June 2012: Psychology of Astro*Carto*Graphy® by Jim Lewis with Kenneth Irving is now back in print.

Astro*Carto*Graphy®, developed by the late Jim Lewis, revolutionized astrology by transforming the ancient horoscope wheel into a world map that shows at a glance where a person can find love, money, vitality, or even jump-start a fading career - simply by moving to a new location.



The Psychology of Astro*Carto*Graphy®, based on Lewis' writings, notes, and lectures, with additional material by Kenneth Irving, has long been hailed as the definitive work on the subject, and this new edition revises and extends the information found in the original. Detailed explanations of the changes each planet can bring to a particular location help the reader to apply Astro*Carto*Graphy®'s insights to his or her own life.

The book also includes useful notes, an index, historical and technical notes on Astro*Carto*Graphy, a resource section for further study, and afterwords on Jim Lewis, the man and the teacher, and the continuing charitable work that stems from his legacy.




 

From Here to There: An Astrologer's Guide to Astromapping by Martin Davis; is an anthology of meaty and unique articles published by The Wessex Astrologer in 2008. In addition to Martin's contr ibutions, it contains chapters by a number of Continuum's practitioners, including Jim Lewis & Ariel Guttman, Robert Currey, Maya White, Angel Z. Thompson,Donna Cunningham, David Meadows, and Dale O'Brien. See a copy and order here.


Jim Lewis' Astro*Carto*Graphy Legacy

It is our great good fortune that Jim's years of experience in interpreting Astro*Carto*Graphy maps was preserved in the posthumously published book, The Psychology of Astro*Carto*Graphy. This came about because of the coordinated efforts of a number of people, including his co-author Kenneth Irving and his editor Erin Sullivan. To order it and to read the moving story of how this book was written, visit wordsandthings.com.

For the serious student who wishes to prepare for the A*C*G certification exam, the most comprehensive resource is Continuum's transcript of the tapes from Jim Lewis's last seminar, a 16-hour training. The 80 plus page transcript with copious handouts is available for $60 plus + $10 for postage from Continuum at the address given on our site. Since such comprehensive training seminars are seldom given now, this transcript is well worthwhile in that it contains all the basic concepts of A*C*G and illustrations of how the technique works.

Tapes of Jim's Lectures

ISIS Institute has a rare tape of a Jim Lewis lecture on A*C*G plus many other resources available. Additional tapes by Jim are available through The National Council for Geocosmic Research The International Society for Astrological Research (ISAR) has archive tapes from their conferences over the years and is presently engaged in a project of making them available. They may have some of Jim's tapes.

Jim Lewis' fascinating first book, The Astro*Carto*Graphy Book of Maps, which he co-wrote with Arielle Guttman, sadly has been out of print for years, though Continuum hopes at some time to reprint it. The book took the maps of 136 citizens of the world and analyzed why they became known in certain locations or why certain events in their lives were catalyzed by locations where they lived or traveled. If you have a copy or find one in a used book store, hang on to it for dear life! To find a copy, you might give Bookfinder.com a try. There is a search engine which covers a wide variety of used and rare book sources.

In October, 2002: CONTINUUM was pleased to announce the long-awaited addition to Jim Lewis' legacy--the publication of his posthumous book, Peter Pan in Midlife and the Midlife of America: A Personal and Collective Memoir. See an excerpt here.
