The Illustrated Guide to AstrologyBook - 1999
Celebrate the power of astrology! Other guides to the zodiac usually offer just the basic facts -- this one provides that and more. Remarkably stunning and brilliant color paintings on every page capture the magic of the stars, the planets, and the astrological symbols. Follow this sacred art from its earliest days in the cultural flowering of the Greek and Roman Empires through to its dramatic rebirth in our century as people look for ways to find a meaning in the events that affect their lives. Images and photographs of artifacts from all these periods attest to the important role played by astrology. The sections devoted to each sign feature all the symbols associated with it, along with a detailed explanation of the personality, romantic tendencies, and career interests of those born under that sign. Even more important is the description of the different branches of astrology: Karmic, which seeks answers to present-day problems in past lives; Electional, which helps pinpoint the best timing for any event; Horary, which answers specific questions; and many others.
