The Labours of Hercules is a vivid narrative describing the journey of the soul through the twelve signs of the zodiac, as viewed from the myth of Hercules. The text is based upon a series of lectures given by Alice A. Bailey and is an excellent introduction to an understanding of esoteric astrology. This book is an insightful addition to the 24 volume set of books by Alice A. Bailey, written in cooperation with a Master of the Wisdom, a body of esoteric teaching handed down from ancient times in a form which is always suitable to each period.(Publisher)

Alice Ann Bailey (1880-1949) was one of the first people to use the term "New Age." She was a pioneer on the topic of theosophy, and wrote more than 24 books on subjects including sprituality, systems of esoteric thought, Christianity, healing, and ideas for a unified society. Bailey claimed that she was in telepathic communication with a "Master of Wisdom," who dictated the writings to her. Her work held wide influence in many areas such as the New Age movement, neopaganism, women in religion, psychotherapy and healing, and UFO groups. Very good +. Item #10968
