The easiest way to learn astrology is to start with yourself. Your astrological birth chart is a powerful tool for gaining a deeper understanding of your unique gifts, talents, challenges, and life's purpose. As you begin to decipher the wealth of information in your own birth chart, you'll experience astrology in a personally meaningful way-which makes it easier to understand and remember. Once you learn the basics of astrology, you'll be able to read the birth charts of yourself and others.

This friendly guidebook is the most complete introduction to astrology available. Popular astrologer Kris Brandt Riske presents the essentials of astrology in a clear, step-by-step way, paying special attention to three areas of popular interest: relationships, career, and money. She explains the meaning of the planets, zodiac signs, houses, and aspects, and how to interpret their significance in your chart. Over 30 illustrations, including the birth charts of several famous people—Al Gore, Oprah Winfrey, Brad Pitt, and Tiger Woods, to name just a few—add a helpful visual dimension to your learning experience.

Practical and positive, Llewellyn's Complete Book of Astrology offers techniques for using astrology to identify the qualities you seek in an ideal mate, realize your career and financial potential, calculate your luck, and discover your inner strength.

The very words "Mercury Retrograde" send most people into a tailspin. Every 88 days, the planet Mercury seems to drift backwards in the solar system, wreaking 21 days of havoc. Or so it seems. Astrologer Marguerite Manning, author of Cosmic Karma, thinks we should give Mercury Retrograde just a little more attention than hiding under the covers until Mercury goes direct again. With Mercury going retrograde on January 11, 2009, how will you take advantage of the situation?
