The Western Sidereal Interpretation Workbook
In An Introduction to Western Sidereal Astrology, Kenneth Bowser presented the basics of western sidereal astrology—the history and rationale, the stars, planets, signs, aspects and planet combinations. In The Western Sidereal Astrology Interpretation Workbook, he shows you how to apply this knowledge to the art of chart interpretation. In this step-by-step workbook, Ken will guide you through the interpretation of 25 horoscopes.
In Section One, you will find 25 charts with no names or data. Each chart is accompanied by nine questions/prompts that will help you to identify the dominant themes in each horoscope. After you've answered the questions and written your interpretation, you'll turn to the corresponding chart in Section Two. There you will find the chart with the name and data and Ken's interpretation. These detailed interpretations run between two thousand and five thousand words each. The Workbook includes a page to note what you've learned and what you may have missed in your own interpretation. In this way, you will hone your skills and expand your ability to correctly read astrological symbolism.
A well-known astrologer with over 50 years of experience in chart interpretation, Ken will show you how to synthesize the many factors in each horoscope. Two hours of private tutoring are included. Ken will critique your interpretation of the final chart, or personally guide you through your interpretation.

I’ve been a student of astrology for approximately twenty years, having originally studied tropical with two schools. After reading Ken’s online articles and then his book, An Introduction to Western Sidereal Astrology, I made the switch. I was very hopeful when Ken announced the release of The Western Sidereal Astrology Interpretation Workbook and I have not been disappointed. It fit in perfectly with my busy life, as I could pick up and leave off to suit my pace. The content was second to none—precise, clear, thorough, and a genuine pleasure to read. Twenty-five charts felt like an appropriate amount to come to grips with the various techniques covered. Ken’s feedback and commentary was thoughtful and generously given. He is the leading western siderealist of our time, immensely knowledgable and respectfully drawing upon those who came before. I’m ever so grateful to have the opportunity to learn from a master. I highly recommend Ken’s Workbook to any serious astrologer, tropical or sidereal-leaning, who wishes to expand their technique, bringing chart analysis to life with a more 3D approach.
