Library Journal Review

One of the best astrology books to appear recently, this work is exceptional in its in-depth character analysis of each sign. The cosmic gifts, relationship trends, financial tendencies, and career tendencies associated with each sign are all described in detail. The mythology of each sign is included as well, nicely rounding out the book. While most astrology books concentrate on the strengths of the various signs, this book also delves into their negative aspects so that one can really see how to use the information in very practical terms. It's great for helping to deal with people who don't share the same outlook on life as you do. Highly recommended.DMarija Sanderling, Wells, ME (c) Copyright 2010.
