Discover your personality

I've always been curious about astrology and I like to learn more about it. However, when a book is hard to read and the personality profiles don't really seem to match my personality I tend to lose interest. That was NOT the case with this book. It was very easy to use and it made it uncomplicated to determine your different birth planets. The fascinating part was that most of the different personality descriptions seemed to be pretty accurate for me. I was really impressed with that.

Where planets are at a glance

These days doing a chart using a PC is not difficult, but suppose you know some approximate information about someone and you want to find out their likely tendencies based on planetary positions in an instant? This book enables just that. Complicated ephemeris books are a hassle, expensive and difficult to get hold of, especially if you are not an astrologer. About a half of this book is taken up as a very simple ephemeris which shows where all the important planets are from around 1900 to 2000. The layout is simple and huge amounts of data are compressed into user friendly pages. The book provides a basic overview of what planetary positions mean, and then it does personality assessments of all the planets through all the signs - especially the important planets from the Sun to Saturn. It does not go into detail about houses and the ascendant because it is a rough guide to a rough chart. This is often all you may want to know, and at this level very useful. Just to find someone's moon sign is a revealation. The personality profiles for each planet in each sign of an essay on one page and a chart on the other showing negative and positive traits of the placement and how they can be interchanged is once again reader friendly and the book has interesting diagrams and icons (these are not in-depth for generational extra Saturn planets). Altogether a simple, vibrant and very informative book that is like a magnifying glass into the first few stages of astrological analysis based on planets in signs.


I have never read such an accurate book on this subject. I would really rate this highly and recommned it to absolutely anyone, with even the slightest interest iln Astrology. Not only does it give you a step by step guide to your solar chart. It gives you a comprehensive insight to ones, personality and triats. It really helps you to understand yourself better. Even the most cynical of people would be left wondering, I recommend this to anyone:- BUY THIS BOOK!!! Well done Lyn!

A good tool for beginners

This book presents a relatively simple approach to the compilation of an astrological chart of some accuracy. In addition to the detailed text found accompanying the position of each planet within a house (described as the Essence), there is a fantastic tool called the Transformer. This assesses the negative traits, identifies the problems they cause and suggests behavioural changes which in turn lead to a solution in which the negative traits are transformed into positive ones. The accuracy of the material, for a book of this level, is quite startling, and there are several levels of complexity which you can progress to if you are inclined. Instructions are pretty easy to follow, and I was able to quickly compile quite detailed charts for the four members of my family over a weekend. Certainly the level of customisation for individuals is far above that for generic sun sign/star sign books.
