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 Ken's
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 $50 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.
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.
The Jim Lewis Library: Through the efforts of Continuum, the Jim Lewis Library,
including his voluminous Astro*Carto*Graphy files,
has been preserved and is available to researchers
by appointment. (Copy machine on site.) Almost as peripatetic as Jim himself,
the library now rests with Gregg Howe of AstroNumerics. That site also has some rare magazine
articles by Jim.
