Ruth Brummund, Dipl. Psych.

translated by L Blake Finley, M.A.

NOTE: It has come to the translator's attention that the textual content of some of the original articles sent or posted by Ms Brummund from/in Germany have been altered after the translator received the text translated below. The following text is a translation of the content of the article as it appeared on the date indicated at the end of this translated text, and does not include translation of any alterations that may have been made in the German original since that date.

  PLEASE NOTE:  This book is Not to be confused with a book alternately titled "Handbook of Techniques for the Hamburg School" or "Tools & Techniques for Uranian Astrology", a translation of a book co-authored by Ms Brummund and Udo Rudolph in 1985, translated and published elsewhere -- the contents of the English translations are of radically different character and quality.

The Special Uranian astrology program by Aureas Software, designed in collaboration with Ruth Brummund, is designed specifically to implement the techniques covered in this book -- click here for further information.

The new Brummund Technique Book or "Uranische Techniken Hamburger Astrologen", first published in German in 1994 and supplemented with new material since, delineates Ruth Brummund's concise and coherent approach to Uranian astrological practice.

In the past, Ms Brummund's books have been presented indirectly through printed English translations where many ambiguities were left unaccounted for or unanswered.  To resolve this problem, the content of this book, with new supplemental materials, will form the core of new Uranian Astrology classes to be taught by Uranian astrologer Blake Finley, with coaching and mentoring by master astrologer Ruth Brummund.  Ms Brummund intends to be available for questions asked in English during the classes, relayed to her, and then translated from German for the class to further study and discuss during the next or subsequent class periods.

The classes will also use the new Special Uranian computer program by Aureas Software, designed in collaboration with Ruth Brummund, to present and work with the study materials.  The Special Uranian program is scheduled to include the midpoint interpretations from the authoritative and comprehensive new Brummund Rulebook, original published in Germany in 1990, with subsequent updates.

The courses will be offered in a university seminar format, and are intended to bring astrologers up-to-date in both those techniques that have proven over time to be the most effective for routine use, as well as newer techniques and approaches that stay on track with key points of the chart, and address key and critical personality issues.

For those familiar with traditional Hamburg techniques, take note that use of houses, sensitive points, antiscia, and rulerships will be among the historical techniques excluded from the lessons.

Examinations will be offered, and a Certificate of proficiency awarded to those students demonstrating competence in the material studied.

Note that the classes will not be a forum to debate the relative efficacy of other astrological techniques... this can be done elsewhere, in other classes or other forums.
