In 1962, Arthur published The Circle of Sex, a book that analyzed human sexuality through the lens of astrology. Rather than the linear scale developed by Alfred Kinsey, Arthur envisioned sexuality as a wheel with twelve orientations.[11] The twelve types corresponded to the zodiac and Arthur illustrated each with an historical archetype (e.g., Don Juan, Sappho, Lady C).[11] Arthur, bisexual himself, was said to have been intimate with Edward Carpenter and Neal Cassady.[12] Arthur was also a friend to many of the beat generation, including Allen Ginsberg and Alan Watts, and was active in the early gay liberation movement.[12]

Arthur married for the third time in 1965 to Ellen Jansen.[2] He wrote an enlarged edition of The Circle of Sex the following year.[2] He used astrology to determine the date to hold the Human Be-In in 1967. In 1968, he debated fellow astrologer Dane Rudhyar on the topic of the Age of Aquarius.[13] In 1972, Arthur died at the Fort Miley Veterans Hospital in San Francisco.[7] Having no children himself, he was the last living descendant of his grandfather, President Chester A. Arthur. His papers, including many family papers, were donated to the Library of Congress.
