Astrology and writing, two things I enjoy immensely. Astrology for Writers is a great guide for someone looking to create a new character, or wanting to flesh out an existing one. It offers excellent insight into planetary archetypes, zodiac signs and elements. I was half way through the first entry (The Sun) when I stopped and went “Hey now, I have this character!” and grabbed a notebook and started matching the cast of my WIP to the archetypes, and I must say, I found most of them. That was pretty cool, and gave me some ideas I hadn’t considered before. Astrology for Writers also stimulates creativity with the “creative guidance” sections which offers questions and writing prompts. Each archetype also has a nifty guide on examples of where a character based on that archetype would fit into a story. Another useful feature is the compatibility charts between the signs / archetypes, for writers who might need relationship or conflict assistance. In part 3: The Houses of the Horoscope, Corrine Kenner even gives advice on settings.
