Lovescopes: What Astrology Wants You to Know About You and the Ones You Love is a mesmerizing combination of intricate patterns combining astrology, mythology, psychology, and love into the concept of relationships. Mark S. Husson goes through each of the Zodiac signs, noting compatibility between different Zodiac pairs. Whether your sign is Leo, Cancer, Pisces, or any of the other Zodiac signs, Lovescopes will offer a better understanding of how and why the different signs work together. Credentialed with a Masters in Counseling and a life-long love for psychology, Husson's purpose in writing Lovescopes is to give people support and solace, and an infusion of hope during painful times.
Make no mistake about it, this is not a technical book on astrology. On the contrary, it is a fascinating book on relationships that invites readers to explore not only the nature of relationships but also the mythological origins of inherent urges-which are attached to their respective Zodiac signs.
One of the interesting origin stories, the story of the Libra, revolves around Paris and the Golden apple. Paris is a handsome mortal who exhibits impeccable judgment, which is indicative of Libra. Hence, Paris is appointed by Zeus to judge the first ever Miss Universe Pageant. In the process, he becomes the mediator between Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite, leading to two other Libra characteristics: "dislike of conflict" and "love of looking good."
Instead of hammering the reader with a robotic, or mechanical enumeration-a simple list of characteristics for the respective sign-these mythological anecdotes are refreshing and engaging, making the book fun to read. In addition, the unique aspect of this book is the 911 Emergency Plan at the end of the book that helps the individual cope with a relationship that is breaking down or has entered the "battle zone." Essentially, this section knocks sense into the reader and helps to mend a broken spirit.
Ultimately, Lovescopes is instrumental in helping couples say sorry to each other, giving advice on keeping-or getting rid of-their love, and saying just the right thing to make their partner happy! Lovescopes is a highly recommended must-read that will entertain!

Ever wonder why you and your mate clash well that was my main question being a aries and my hubs being a leo. It really opened my eyes to the actual underlying problem weve had for so many years and why we " almost" got divorced but this has really helped us learn to accept one another and move past our problems! Strongly reccommend!

I have several astrology books, and this is one of the best in terms of being easy to read. The Author provides just the right amount of information, not too much - which is especially helpful for someone new to understanding astrology - but which I find to be helpful as well.Was this review helpful?
