Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This beautifully illustrated book offers readers a chance to create and interpret their own birth chart with a little help from the Internet. Gillett (president, Astrological Assoc. of Great Britain) begins with a history of astrology and shows the importance of star interpretation to many societies from antiquity to the present. He also argues that astrology should be treated with more gravitas and blames the rise of Christianity for astrology's downfall. The book continues with a detailed explanation of the planets and a section on conventional star signs, which explains their traits and characteristics. Readers are invited to use a website to create their own birth chart and to use the final sections of the book to interpret this chart. Creating the chart is simple—a matter of entering name, birth date, birth time, and place of birth—but interpreting it fully requires a detailed understanding of houses, aspects, etc. VERDICT While the book bills itself as a beginner's guide, only serious students of astrology will be able to get the full use of it. Casual readers of their daily horoscopes will likely find this information overload.—Susan Flaherty, Portland P.L., ME
