Preliminary comments:  for those accustomed to the older Rulebooks, note that all triplicities are now listed in one place, i.e. ME+JU-SA, ME+SA-JU, and JU+SA-ME are all listed in one place in the Brummund Rulebook:  under ME.JU.SA   The period or dot between each planet indicates that the planets are connected in a significant mathematical relationship, via midpoint or cluster.  Years of experience working with older references that kept the various mathematical permutations separate led both the author, as well as the translator, to realize that there were continual overlaps between the separate listings; and that listing the interpretations in 3 places instead of one was quite frequently both impractical and misleading.  Each planetary interpretation is divided into two paragraphs, the first giving psychological tendencies, and the second giving likely manifestations.  The +/- format used in earlier versions of the English translation has been removed at the request of Ms Brummund.  Instead, the more positive/constructive manifestations are listed at the beginning of each paragraph, followed by less constructive manifestations at the end.

Another quality that distinguishes this Rulebook from past editions, particularly those which Hermann Lefeldt was involved in writing or editing, is a decided emphasis on the idea that the human will is capable of analyzing and shaping all planetary influences in order to maximize the positive potential of any given situation, and that astrology is NOT constrained to a philosophy of 100% determinism. While planetary influences are undoubtedly significant and powerful, the human will is capable of molding them to shape human destiny.  This new Rulebook is written with an understanding of the interrelationship, as opposed to an assumed mutual exclusivity, of the dense physical and more subtle metaphysical realities (including the psychological); this in step with current advanced developments in science.

Some people have misunderstood or been misinformed about other fallacious claims to copyrights on this book, and these are clarified by documentation from both Ruth Brummund, the author of the German original, and Udo Rudolph, the publisher of earlier editions of the Regelwerk-Neufassung, and these letters can be viewed at .

The following sample section includes interpretations of planetary combinations involving both Mercury and Jupiter.  It is based on the second, enlarged, 1990 edition of the Regelwerk-Neufassung by Ruth Brummund, and also includes updates and additions by Ruth Brummund and additions by Blake Finley, (indicated within parentheses).
