This book is occupied with an attempt to collate the two chief systems of character reading and to deduce from their comparison & general thesis for the scientific study of Mind. 

All recondite problems concerning the ultimate nature of Mind, which properly belong to the domain of Psychology and Philosophy, have been set aside, and in effect there has been endeavored to present a method by which the complexities of Character-reading are reduced to their simplest equation. 

It must be evident to any student of human nature, that in any estimate of personal character and faculty, the whole force of the individual springs from a single dominant desire, love, or ambition, which tinctures and deploys all other qualifications, characteristics and faculties to its use. It is what Swedenborg would call “the dominant love,” or what is popularly apprehended as “the ruling passion.” With a correct apprehension of this predominant characteristic, the interpretation of the personal character becomes extremely simple, and it will be found possible to predicate thence what a person is likely to do, how he will act, and what measures he will employ in a given set of circumstances. 

Although Character may be defined for general purposes as the habit of mind, such a definition will not serve, inasmuch as it makes character to be accidental instead of incidental to the person. In the estimate of character that was arrived at certain basic conclusions which are in line with the sound teachings of Gall, Spurzheim, Coombe, and the more modern exponents of Phrenology, such as Fowler, Severn and Hollander. The astrological ascriptions are those derived from the writers long experience in the art of interpretation. And here he may re-affirm his view of the planets as symbols, not as causes, except in so far as we respond to the external stimulus of conditions set up by interplanetary action. Detachment and isolation of the Mind from circumstances is always possible to such as are sufficiently evolved as to be “a law unto themselves,” and the whole trend of mental and spiritual evolution would appear to be in the direction of this detachment of the individual and his consequent liberation from the bonds of the flesh. The evolution of the unit from the mass, the specialization of faculty in the individual, and his liberation from the yoke of circumstance, is all that either Science or Religion has to teach us. It is a view consistent with the known variation of human character and the highest aims of human endeavor.

Dr. Walter Gorn Old (born 20 March 1864, in Handsworth, England; died 23 December 1929 in Hove, England) was a notable 19th century astrologer, better known as Sepharial. An eminent English Theosophist, Sepharial was a well-known and respected astrologer in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and wrote numerous books, some of which are still highly regarded today. He was editor of Old Moore's Almanac, which is still published in the 21st century.

As a young man Sepharial initially studied medicine and followed this up with studies in psychology, oriental languages, astrology and numerology. In 1886, he started to write an astrology problem page in the Society Times where he answered public questions, and in 1887 was admitted to the "inner sanctum" of the Theosophical Society. He was one of the founding members of the Theosophical movement in England. Madame Blavatsky (whom he lived with until her death) called him "The Astral Tramp." Sepharial became an influential author in the fields of the occult, astrology and numerology, and his writings had a considerable impact on Alfred H. Barley and Alan Leo, who he introduced to Theosophy. He can be credited as the first astrologer to use Earth's hypothetical "dark moon" Lilith in his calculations.
