Editorial Reviews

United Press International
Truly lives up to its title.
Library Journal
Although this is not the only astrology book that your library will ever need, it is still a valuable title that should be strongly considered. Woolfolk, the horoscope columnist for Marie Claire and Redbook magazines, has updated her classic guide for the first time in 19 years. Thoroughly covered here are sun signs, moon signs, planets, and the significance of the 12 zodiacal houses, as well as the most recent discoveries in astronomy and 21st-century projections. The author gives an easy, logical way to integrate the interpretations of the sun signs, moon signs, planets, and houses in any given chart, something not easily done or often seen in general astrology books. The book's only shortcoming is its lack of instruction on making a detailed technical chart, which is necessary if one is to cast a complete and accurate horoscope. However, Woolfolk compensates for this by teaching a simplified method that is about 90 percent accurate enough to get a beginner started and includes a bibliography for further instruction. Astronomical tables are included to help cast the simplified chart. A great bargain for the price, this is highly recommended for all astrology collections.

    This is a fabulous book

    I would recommend this book to anyone that is interested in astrology. It really is the only book you'll ever need. The computer disk it comes with is amazingly helpful because you don't have to do all the math and look through a bunch of charts to make a birthchart any more. I have had lots of fun giving everyone I know their astrology readings and have learned lots about my friends, family and myself. I don't think I could ever get tired of this book and am thrilled to have it in my library.

    Very specific in certain areas, too vague in other areas

    I did enjoy the details about every sun sign and moon sign. The section about planets is quite informative. There's also a chapter that explains in details the history and legend behind every sign. I find that entertaining.

    However, I did not like the chapter on how to interpret your birth chart. It was not specific enough. For example, my North node is in Taurus and in the 11th House. There was a page which describes my node in the 11th House, even though it was extremely short. Too short, in fact. But there was nothing about my north node being in Taurus. What's the point of me finding out on the CDrom that my North node is in Taurus if it's not being explained in the book?

    All other chapters are very, very detailed, except for the chapter that explains how to intrepret your birth chart. It's as if the author spends too much on other chapters that by the time she got to this chapter, she got tired and decided to half-ass it.

    I'd say this is good for beginners, but not for high-esteemed astrologers. However, it did motivate me to buy other books on areas, which this book is missing.

    I am highly disappointed; I have the older version and honestly,

    I am highly disappointed; I have the older version and honestly, this "updated" version really is not updated or new at all...unless the addition of words and terms related to the newer technology justifies this "updated/expanded" version. I am also almost positive that when I initially placed my order, a CD-Rom was to be included with the book. Upon receiving it (over a month late due to a never-admitted publishing delay), there was no CD. Instead, a link is provided on the cover of the book (it is buried within the back pages, furthering me to believe that this was part of the reason for the publishing delay and the publisher chose to slap a sticker on the cover in place of the aforementioned CD-Rom). When I attempt to use the link provided to view my birth chart, there is no such active link. It is temporarily (and seemingly, temporarily is subjective here), unavailable. VERY DISAPPOINTED. If you already have the previous edition, don't bother wasting your money on this one.

    This book is truly 'The Only Astrology Book You`ll Ever Need'.

    I`ve never seen another astrology book that can even come close to this one. The you/your mate section and the 'do your own horoscope' sections are unbelievable. A must have.
