CriticasValeria, a horoscope columnist and radio talk show host, divides her time between New York and Cuernavaca, Mexico. Several of her books on astrology, including her recent Inteligencia astrologica (Astrological Intelligence, Random House Espanol, 2001), are available in Spanish and English. Her enormously popular previous books offered inspirational daily quotes from the world's greatest thinkers as well as Q&As for each sign. This book, the second in the "Un poco mas de...." series, philosophizes about love and the astrological propensities underlying behavior through essays. Valeria begins with a personal introduction about her parents' love affair, disclaiming the exactitudes of pegging your loved one's characteristics to one sign, since we carry all 12 in us. Valeria comes across as a well-read astrologer, drawing on Greek mythology and classic international literature to bring each sign to life. The 12 essays can be tangential and obtuse at times, but every so often Valeria offers moments of poetry and inspiration that breathe new life into the stereotypical horoscope reading. Recommended for bookstores and public libraries with large New Age collections.
