Overview

Everyone's favorite astrology book, having sold over 500,000 copies, is now even easier to use with an interactive CD-ROM! This edition of The Only Astrology Book You'll Ever Need still includes all of the detailed information about how to cast your own chart the old-fashioned way and, more importantly, how to interpret it once you're finished. But the CD-ROM in this new edition allows the reader to cast his or her chart in just a few minutes by inputting the date, time and place of birth into the computer, producing a personalized astrological chart in just a few minutes. In addition to revealing the planets' influence on romance, health, and career, The Only Astrology Book You'll Ever Need takes a closer look at the inner life of each sign. Celebrated astrologer Joanna Martine Woolfolk offers abundant insights on the personal relationships and emotional needs that motivate an individual, on how others perceive astrological types, and on dealing with the negative aspects of signs. Readers will also welcome the inclusion of new discoveries in astronomy.

Editorial Reviews

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.

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.

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 love this book. This will be the 3rd time I have bought this book. Whenever I show it to someone, it disappears. This time it will never leave my room. I love this book, it gives such good information and so accurate. I would recommend this book to everyone who wants to know about astrology.

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.

For anyone who purchased The new 21st Century Edition of this book its release date has been pushed back several times since february and was pushed back again this month until the second week in september it really sucks a** that the publisher apparently has its head up its a** and laying down on the job but if the revisions are as good as i anticipate i dare say itll be worth the wait

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.

Wonderful book! Very informative and a great starting point. I have only recently began to study astrology and this book was recommended to me by a friend. Does anyone have to the web link for creating your chart online? My toddler niece scratched the sticker with the link off the front cover :/

this book is great, but its also a book to help you put together a birth chart and is suppose to have a cd with it. it didnt come with it! an the gold sticker for the link is just as bogus! you cant put in the time of birth or hit create! even though i like this book without the cd or a working link its kind of a waste for most of the book. i paid for a cd included with this book i should have gotten the cd with the book! is it everywhere or barnes  an noble? laame!
