Preface to the English Edition

In almost forty years of passionate studies, many of my books have been read and studied by dozens of thousands of readers all over the world.
One of my luckier volumes (Transits and Solar Returns is its title in English) has been published once in English, in German, and in Spanish; and twice in Italian and French. It may be claimed that, especially thanks to that wonderful virtual shop called Amazon, this book is now being read all over the world including Mongolia, the Philippines, Australia, Canada, etc.
Other volumes of mine on Solar Returns or on Lunar Returns are presently studied in Slovenia, in Hungary, in Russia…
Soon further versions of my books will be available in other minor languages.
What you are browsing is my most recent book, since it was first sold in Italian bookshops in September, 2008. This is its second English edition, containing slight but significant amendments.
Since they are usually particularly attentive to this kind of technical astrology, I trust that my English-speaking readers will appreciate this new ‘Northwest Passage’ of astrological research, which may lead you to heuristic paths of great interest – as it is the case of Earth Returns, a subject that I consider to be extremely interesting.
Other subjects of mine are presently widely applied here in Italy: I trust that one day they might become useful also to my American or anyway English-speaking colleagues. I am referring to different astrological threads, such as the protocol for a rectification of the time of birth of an individual; the method for the dating of events within a year; my rules of medical astrology; my concept of the exorcism of symbols; and many other subjects.
Nice reading to you all.
