Linda Goodman’s Sun Signs
Honestly, my favorite astrologer is Caeriel Crestin. Sadly, to the best of my knowledge, Caeriel doesn’t have a book or blog detailing the intricacies of the zodiac. However, Linda Goodman does a pretty good job of giving the twelve signs their own distinct personalities, while exemplifying them via verses from Lewis Carroll’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’. Goodman chronicles each Sun Sign, then further categorizes them into Man, Woman, Child, Boss and Employee. Are you wondering why your Capricorn boss never seems to go home? Well, as Goodman will further explain, he’s already made the office his home. This is a wonderful starting point for people who would like to learn about astrology.
Linda Goodman’s Love Signs
Now that you’ve gotten to know yourself, it’s time to see how you match up with other people. Don’t deny it; checking compatibility is one of the big draws of astrology. Are you a Gemini wondering how you’d fare with that mysterious Scorpio babe? Can that Aries fire ever turn into ice? Here, Goodman gives an in-depth profile of male/female relationships within the realm of the zodiac. I especially like how she never tells the reader which relationships to avoid, instead emphasizing that all relationships will take some work. That’s pretty good advice by itself. Something to keep in mind while exploring what the stars have in store for you: this book was originally published in the ‘70s, when the love may not have been quite free, but at least it was still on sale.
So, you’ve gotten to know your sign and how you relate to other people. You must be thinking you’re pretty smooth, huh? Before you hit the streets with the “self-confidence” and “charm” your specific sign affords you, please remember that those traits can also translate as “arrogant” and “outright obnoxious.” Not so raring to go anymore, are you? Darkside Zodiac is my type of astrology. Sarcastic and witty, it emphasizes the, well, dark side of the zodiac. Wondering which sign is the most likely to stab you in the back or sleep with your partner? What about which sign is the most likely candidate for an STD? Darkside Zodiac will tell you that and more (even though you might have not wanted to know). While the book is admittedly snarky, it does have a lot of information pertaining to some of the more complicated aspects of the astrology, including the importance of ascendants as well as planetary influences. You know, just in case you believe in that sort of rubbish. MTW
