The Fable of Cupid and Psyche
Translated by Thomas Taylor. Preface by Manly P. Hall
*Translated from the Latin of Apuleius, Taylor's extensive introduction deals with the mystery of the human soul, divine love, and human regeneration.
In the fable Eros, or Cupid, is introduced as the Divine Principle in man and Psyche as the human soul. The morality of this fable is profound and exalted. Sacred and profane love are contrasted and those inner parts of human nature associated with this mystery are beautifully explained.
As the plot of the story develops it is obvious that the supporting philosophical doctrines are derived from the secret teachings of the Mystery Schools. The truths involved were then perpetuated by later sects who sought to restore and preserve the older wisdom.
The human being must sometime face the challenge of his own spiritual needs; by purifying his own emotions he preserves not only himself but the mortal world in which he lives.
The fact that Apuleius was an initiate of the classical Mysteries and among the most enlightened of the Neoplatonists more than justifies the present edition as a major contribution in this field of Platonic psychology.
To the modern psychologist who has become aware of the alchemy of human emotions, the account given by Apuleius should be of extraordinary interest. The author points out that the sacred mystery of love has been generally profaned and associated with mortal passion and that the perversion of the greatest good is the greatest evil.

This pamphlet explores the astrological aspects of some of life's tougher topics:
- Infant Mortality
- "Under the general heading of infant mortality we must consider not only the still-born or new-born babe, but all who depart from the world prior to the period of individual mental effort. The period of self determination and personal responsibility may be said to begin not earlier than the 12th to 14th year,"
- "Birth and death are inevitable, determined by the law of karma, but marriage is a decision."
- "Natural death can generally be approximated from the chart by a consideration of the constitutional strength of rulings and planets; violent death, by aspects and positions of planets."
- "The house placements are very revealing, for they indicate the departments of life that impel toward self-destruction."
