Astrology, Plain & Simple: The Only Book You'll Ever Need - Cass Jackson, Janie Jackson (2016)


“There is nothing simple about astrology,” a friend told us. “All those measurements and degrees and logarithms—what's simple about it?”

It's true that over the centuries a certain mystique has built up around the science of the stars. It's equally true that there is now a resurgence of interest in astrology, and many would-be stargazers are seeking simple do-it-yourself instructions to help demystify the art of chart interpretation. Astrology Plain and Simple provides an answer to that quest.

You almost certainly know your Sun sign—and that is the most important astrological factor of all. Once you know the Sun signs of your friends and relations, you'll be able to read them like a book. Add to this Sun sign knowledge some idea of the effect of the planets on each sign and you'll understand why these people act as they do. This information in itself is more than sufficient for you to begin to understand what makes people tick.

If, after absorbing this amount of know-how, you become so hooked on astrology that you want to learn more, this book goes on to explain houses, aspects, transits—and a variety of other strange-sounding words. Sure, you'll need to put on your thinking cap, but providing you're not expecting to become Astrologer Royal or to set up in a lucrative business, you'll find everything you need to know. If you're the ambitious type (Aries or Leo perhaps?), you can easily find out more by delving into other books, or surfing the web, or attending courses. Quite literally—the sky's the limit.
