The Only Astrology Book You’ll Ever Need gives explana-tions of the inﬂuences that are often given scant attention in conventional astrology books: the Moon sign, the Ris-ing sign, the placement of the planets, and the signiﬁcance of the twelve Houses. The value of this book is that an immense amount of knowledge is put into easy-to-understand language. The book is also easy to use, for it supplies simpliﬁed Tables that in most cases require only the laying down of a ruler across the birthdate.
This book tells you all you should know about the whole topic of astrology. You will learn about Sun signs—and also about Moon signs, Ascendants, Planets, and Houses. You will come to understand how these factors in-teract to shape your life. You will discover the meaning of Aspects in your horoscope, and how to compare your birth chart with another person’s to reveal areas of compatibility. You will learn how astrology began and developed. And if you have access to a computer, the CD-ROM packaged with this book will enable you to cast a birth chart within seconds.
However, I want to say a word about what this book is not. It is not an encyclopedia—nor does it encompass all the astrological wisdom that has been discovered dur-ing the last 5,000 years. No single book could possibly do that even if it were twenty times as long as the pres-ent volume. This book is an easy-to-understand, all-in-one guide to what astrology is about. If you want to know where all your planets are in your birth chart or how compatible your Sun sign is with your lover’s Sun sign or what the in-ﬂuence of the Moon is in your life—it is here in one book.
I’d like to make one more important point. Astrology cannot transform your life—only you can do this. We as-trologers are often guilty of overpromising or encouraging people to become overdependent. Astrology will not change the ups and downs of your life drama. What it can do is give you insight on how to deal with your drama. Astrology offers information and direction and, best of all, reassur-ance. Sometimes all one is looking for is a nugget of guid-ance, and I know you will ﬁnd many, many nuggets in this book.
I assume you picked up this book because you are inter-ested in astrology. And I hope this is only the beginning of your exploration. One can easily spend a lifetime exploring the uncountable facets of this ever-evolving, ever-new topic. Together we are about to enter more deeply into this fasci-nating, vast, and complicated arena of knowledge. I hope this will not be the only astrology book you’ll ever want—merely the only one you’ll ever need.
