Hone, Margaret (1892-1969)

British astrologer, born October 2, 1892. Hone was associated with the Astrological Lodge of the Theosophical Society (now the Astrological Lodge of London ) in the 1930s and was associated with Charles E. O. Carter for many years. She assisted him in founding the Faculty of Astrological Studies (FAS) in 1948 and in 1954 succeeded him as dean, a post she held for the rest of her life. She also wrote The Modern Textbook of Astrology (1951), adopted as the basic text by the FAS. It has now become a widely used textbook in astrology throughout the English-speaking world. She followed it with a companion volume, Applied Astrology, in 1953.
