The Twelve Mysteries of Love

Love is man's and woman's deepest need. It's not the threat of illness or poverty that crushes the human spirit, but the fear that there is no one who truly cares-no one who really understands. We all reach desperately for love, no matter how healthy, wealthy or wise we may be, because the alternative is loneliness. And so love is sought both in heaven and in hell, by both saints and sinners, wherever the search may take them, and it takes them to some strange places in the Aquarian Age, through the maze of the sexual revolution.

Say, what is this hang-up about sex?
all those people who go to pornographic films
and the ones who won't ...

The swingers and the idealists, the puritans and prostitutes, the frigid and the promiscuous, the male chauvinists and the Women's Liberators, whether they read Browning or Playboy, whether they watch Wait Disney movies or the latest erotica from Sweden, are all looking for the same thing. No matter which road they travel on their pursuit of happiness, the inner need that drives them on is love. Not to give it. Not to receive it. But to share it. To love and be loved in return.

Why is lasting, mutual love so elusive ? To reach a complete and permanent union with the other half (the Twin Soul) man and woman must learn the lessons of the twelve Sun Signs. They must master the wisdom of these Twelve Mysteries of Love before they can achieve a final, perfect harmony between their mental, physical, emotional and spiritual natures.

As we make the trip around the astrological or karmic wheel of life, through the rebirth under the influence ofthe various Sun Signs, sometimes progressing swiftly, sometimes lingering, many times returning to a certain Sun Sign experience to relearn old lessons-we evolve, each at his or her own speed. We are forced, by our own Superconscious selves, to gradually perfect the positive qualities of all twelve signs and purge our natures of their negative qualities, so that we each may eventually become the refined gold of a totally evolved entity, worthy to join the other half -- the Twin Self. In our longing for love -- for our Twin Soul or Soul Mate lies our latent metaphysical wisdom. The secret of life itself. Esoteric truth.

Every Sun Sign contains a strength that can be reversed into a weakness, and every Sun Sign contains a weakness that can be reversed into a strength, through the law of positive-negative polarity. What is Taurus stubbornness but Taurus patience turned upside down ? What is Aries impulsiveness but the negative side of the Ram's positive Mars courage ? Will Leo choose to use the great pride and nobility of the Leonine-Solar birthright for the positive purpose of protecting the helpless -- or for the negative purpose of becoming an arrogant tyrant over the defenseless ? Will the sensible Cancerian caution be turned into Lunar fears and phobias ? Will Pisces compassion and humility be reversed to the negative Neptune aspects of deception, introversion and escape ? The choice of our Sun Sign polarities is always ours to take. And if we make the wrong choice we must relive that Sun Sign experience repeatedly, until we master the positive strength of that sign.

Ok when I first got married this is the first book I ran to. If your having trouble with your relatives, spouse, coworkers and you wonder why just look at their sign! This book has given me a heads up countless times. Especially when dealing with my leo husband and understanding his families quirks. This made the transition so much easier. She gives you tips, hints and understanding on the other person. A must have inany persons library.

This is one of my favorite astrology books, and is very true to life. I've used it through various of my own and my friends relationships and it always is right on. There is some esoteric language and strange rambling stories, but they really only add to the character of the book. Highly reccomended!

my sister borrowed my copy 10 years ago and recently brought it out at a family party, of course everybody looked up thier relationship signs and they were all exactly right like it or not. this book is the best relationship astrology book ever.

I bought a copy of this in the early nineties and numerous copies since as they get borrowed and never returned, usually by those that would never indulge in astrology. The book although astrological, contains the kind of wisdom that connects and rings true whether you are believer or not. It teaches you to accept all human types including yourself.

This book makes for a fun and interesting read, but not entirely accurate. She has definate opinions of some signs that don't always fit..... For the lay person who has never studied, a good introduction. Serious students should go on to study further and not use this book as their sole frame of reference.

By heart...everything is real there, because it had been written by heart. Actually, there's no one among all the people who had read it, denying it after that...NO ONE.

I have a very dog-eared copy of this book sitting on my coffee table in my family room. I cannot tell you how many people have picked it up--looked for their sign and their mates sign and read the short chapter on the combination. ALWAYS they say "this is us !!" Really amazing. I need a new copy !

Linda Goodman doesnt beat around the bush or play with dates, numbers and the phony idea of 'cusps', she is to-the-point and honest. This book is genuine astrology from a genuine astrologer and it is such a pleasure to read.

I highly recommend this book... I read the descripion for all of my relationships, past and present, and they are all amazingly accurate. If you are in a committed relationship, you need to read this! It also gave me a better understanding of the behavior I have been seeing in my fiance.

This book is so REAL. I read her 'Sun Signs' book, but 'Love Signs is so intensely dedicated to relationships. It rang true for me: I am a Pisces and my husband is a Cancer. I couldn't be happier.

If you are into astrogolgy, or even if you are not, this is a great book to read. Your personality, best love match and more can be found here. It is on the money, with my experience.

I'm not big on astrology at all but this book was FUN to read, and as it turns out, very accurate. It would be a great book to pass around to your friends or have around the house as interesting reading for company. I lost my copy a few years ago but intend to buy it again.

I admit she is a great astrologist as far as I know but she definatly has a strong aversion to Cancerian men. She makes them sound absolutly pathetic, even calling them strange. Cancerians and Capricorns bear a terrible burden- I don't think she is aware of that. It really turns me off to her.
