Liz Greene and Howard Sasportas are both wonderful authors/lecturers. This is another book in a series on Jungian Astrology that I've found very helpful. If you're ready to explore deeper waters in this field this is a book you'll ceretainly enjoy. Many basic students make the mistake of assuming that they know about the Sun and the Moon. Read this and then think about that question. I've been teaching astrology since 1978 and have frequently recommended their books to students. Well worth it!
when you've gotten past Linda Goodman's Sun Signs and are looking for something to take you to a broader understanding of astrology, this is the book to get. not really for beginners as it assumes knowledge of some very basic concepts (beginners should look to the aforementioned title and Parker's Astrology). an excellent overview of the jungian astrology so currently in vogue, it shows how the sun and moon placements in charts correspond to parental images. special emphasis on mythology and symbolism as the sun placement is interpreted as indicative of the hero's journey. but readers looking for a "geminis get along with other air signs and with leos and aries" type book should look elsewhere. no pictures.
