My Point of Reference

I bought this book over 20 years ago to learn about astrology. Kempton-Smith's chummy, humanistic approach to interpreting the aspects, planets, etc. shys of pretentious science speak, enabling her to relay her comprehensive understanding of the cosmos in a way that'll get through to just about anyone. Her generous injection of wit taught me and many I know more about astrology than any other book. Can't recommend it enough for either the novice or seasoned astrologer!

THE best book, bar none - you'll bust a gut, too!!!

Wise and funny and true and life-changing. A professional astrologer since 1977, charging $100 for an individual/$200 hourly for corporate... I've used this book and this book ONLY as the text for my beginner's classes since 1983... The only book you need at the entry level, then The Astrologer's Handbook, if you want to get to the beginning professional level... order the Liz Greene computer generated horoscope report from Astrolabe... this is how to wade into astrology to see if you want to go further... and altogether $5000 worth of psychological insight into yourself for $20 + $25 + $45. A bargain that will help you make the most of your best qualities and the best of your worst traits... and enjoy the trip! Once you have studied some, have fun going to - which offers a lot of celebrity and famous people's charts - especially people in the news now... and you can look up the chart of anyone you admire - Julia Roberts or Condoleeza Rice or Justin Timberlake or Michael Crichton... for free or a nominal $5 fee...

The gift I keep on giving!

I purchased my first copy of Secrets in an LAX airport bookstore in 1988. It was such a mind opening experience that I dove headfirst into becoming an astrology enthusiast. Since that initial dog-eared paperback, I have given dozens of copies to friends and associates who expressed an interest in the subject. Without exception, they all raved on and on about Debbi Kempton-Smith's charming wit and self deprecating humor. The writing style removed all preconceptions they had concerning astrology and its role in a modern life. It is a truly disarming read. I've just ordered another 5 copies and can't wait to begin sharing the experience all over again! A fabulous book!

Hooray! It's back in print!

This is the new and updated "Secrets" that Debbi's fans have been waiting so patiently for. I bought the first "Secrets" in 1993 and learned from Debbi how to read an astrology chart, particularly my own. I'd been interested in astrology for years but had never before found a book that explained the basics so clearly. This book is actually not just useful in helping novices, it's terrific for more experienced stargazers. You won't find any book as informative and entertaining. I used the easy to follow charts to find out the planets in signs for all my friends, potential lovers, bosses and enemies. Debbi really teaches you how to find out what makes people tick. The information you will learn and read in this book will impress any skeptic. It's such a fun read that you don't even realize how much you are learning. The best thing about reading this book was that I was able to contact Debbi and she has been my personal astrologer since 1994. She has helped me tremendously and it has been a pleasure to have her as my astrologer and friend.

Immediate, powerful, the one book on astrology to own

Debbie Kempton Smith's Secret's from a Stargazer's Notebook is an exorcise in clarity cutting through the fuzzy and obscure descriptions found in many astrology reference books. With humor, grace and wit she takes the reader on a journey from the basics of astrology to a deeper understanding of the art. One of the many delights in the book is the way she revels an aspect of astrology through an example (a story) of how it manifested in someone's life. Astrology may have a focus on the stars but Debbie Kempton Smith brings it all down to earth. If you've ever been frustrated with the vagaries of astrology than this is the book to get. If you can get hold of a copy. I've owned two copies that now exist in other people's libraries. The next copy I get stays in my own hands. No mercy to would be borrowers! My advice is to get two copies and keep one of them a secret. I give it 6 stars.
