Rex E. Bill's The Rulership Book

One of the most important things a fledging astrologer can do to advance his interpretative skills is to study planet, sign(and house) associations as delineated by experienced astrologers in the field.

In his excellent work "The Rulership Book"(originally printed in 1971) which is a standard amongst all astrologers Rex E. Bills has compiled thousands of rulership associations from the worlds best astrologers and divided them into four main sections: alphabetical, by planet, by sign, and by house. There is also an appendix dealing with medical, business, and other associations. The book is straightforward and easy to use and understand.

There can be more than one planet or sign or house associated with a certain word or subject and the less numerous or certain conclusions are noted in parenthesis. We've gone through many changes since the 1970's and some words, subjects, or ideas(such as computer or internet) may be missing, especially in the ealier editions, but overall it does a great job for giving you a solid foundation for just about every subject or topic under the sun, and I refer to it and learn from it constantly. It is over 400 pages long and a treasure in any astrological library.

Below is a selected sample listing in the A section of of Part One of the book associating common words, subjects, people, or ideas with planets, signs, and houses.
Note: actual glyphs are used in the book for the planets and signs which I cannot here reproduce.
