What inspired me to write All Around the Zodiac was the realization that, while Sun-sign paperbacks are easily available, it’s nearly impossible to find detailed books about the twelve signs themselves. That's too bad, because the insight that the zodiac provides is vital to our understanding of those dynamic themes that fuel our lives, even from a karmic point of view.
Perhaps it's no wonder that readers often develop a better grasp of the other components of natal astrology (the planets, houses, aspects—even forecasting techniques). They may feel less informed about the character-shaping power of the signs and most so when such signs are labeled as "incompatible." How can such contrasting forces ever become successfully integrated? My book gives readers a few helpful hints along these lines.
More Than Key Words
What You Must Know About Each Sign
For example, Sagittarius is a mutable fire sign—mutable signs like to distribute information, while fire is about soaring inspiration and trust in self. Thus, it's no surprise that Sagittarius is well-equipped to teach and preach its broad understanding of uplifting concepts and high-minded ideals to the world; it places great faith in its ability to inspire the minds of others.
Sixty-six Sign Combinations!
For example: if your Sun is in Libra, but your Moon is in Pisces, what can you expect from such a mix? (Read all about it on pages 345-348.) Such information should help you figure out the relationship between any two planets or sensitive points in your chart, and even give you tips on how to pull such energies together to make them work for you. This material may even come in handy when you find yourself intimately involved with somebody of a different Sun sign. You will not easily find such valuable sign-sign information in other books. These detailed descriptions alone make All Around the Zodiac a special astrological tool that you’ll want to refer to, again and again.
