These are works that I have found inspiring, helpful or useful during my journey with astrology. The very first book I have ever read on this topic was A Handbook for the Humanistic Astrologer by Michael Meyer, followed by Essentials of Astrological Analysis by Marc Edmund Jones.
A recognized classic in modern astrology.

Ancient Astrology Theory and Practice: Matheseos Libri VIII by Julius Firmicus Maternus
One of the finest ancient astrological texts, also, one of the best-translated.
The first volume in the Seminars in Psychological Astrology series – for those who want to combine astrology and Jungian psychology. As always with Liz Greene, be aware that she tends to focus on pathology – placements do not always manifest in such dramatic and tragic ways.
The second volume in the Seminars in Psychological Astrology series – for those who want to combine astrology and Jungian psychology. Same advice on reading Liz Greene as with the first volume.
