The Forces of Destiny brings together three of the most fascinating mysteries of all time: fate, reincarnation, and astrology. In this highly original and illuminating book, Penny Thornton compares beliefs about fate, death and rebirth from a variety of esoteric traditions with the discoveries of the New Science, and the literature on the Near Death Experience. The evidence suggests that we absorb the very essence of the planets on our soul's journey through the planetary spheres, and our horoscope reflects our accumulated karma or fate. By understanding the deeper meaning of this map, we can come to learn that fate is not blind, uncontrollable force but a process meted out by the soul itself.

Penny Thornton has come to believe that astrology is 'spiritually arid' without a framework of reincarnation and karma. However, this book points the way towards a regeneration through the meeting of astrology and phychotherapy. Through hypnosis, past-life material can be incorporated to reveal an even greater and deeper understanding of planetary patterns and symbols.

'A widely spread, carefully though out, well researched book, bringing together the latest esoteric and scientific ideas on life'

Divine Encounters

A New Kind of Loving for a New Age of Living

Divine Encounters

Paperback: 220 pages
Publisher: Aquarian Press (July 1992)
Language: English
ISBN: 1855381001

Divine Encounters is about union - ultimately the union with the self, or contacting the 'god within'. Somewhere within each of us is a yearning to find the 'other half' who will make us complete. But no outer union can ever truly fulfil us unless we have become complete within ourselves.

More and more people are being presented with relationships that call upon them to find reserves they never knew they had. And this can be perceived on the collective level as well as the personal. On the one hand, there are some magnificent unions being forged between East and West, and on the other, the potential for a third world war has rarely been greater.

In this book, Penny Thornton explores the reasons for these powerful changes from a spiritual and astrological perspective. She sees it as a transition stage to the New Age. The book spans a wide and varied territory, from the prophecies for the end of the millenium to the way that individuals are being trhese changes are both influenced by, and altering the perception of, the outer planets as agents of transformation.

Unless we undergo this transformation through opening our hearts and expanding our consciousness, we cannot enter fully into the New Age. This is essential not only on a personal level, but collectively - for the survival of humanity.
