I have been studying Astrology on and off for over twenty years. I have a solid functioning knowledge of Western Astrology but as with anything I am no expert.

I love the 'For Dummies' series because the titles offer information for anyone including a person well versed on a particular subject.

The book reads well, moves fluidly through the process of Western Astrology, explains in layman's terms the basic concepts and dictates of Western Astrology and will have you casting charts and interpretin

Astrology is one of my 'guilty pleasures', I must admit. I'm a very down-to-earth person usually, but I like reading about star signs, finding out about horoscopes etc. This is a fun reading, but in fact, on the Internet there's almost everything you can find here.

I've never read nearly four hundred pages for half a week, so that's a statement on its own. This is a great book for beginners as well as a little more experienced aspiring-to-be-astrologers, like myself.
It has every string of the grand picture that you need to be aware of, the thing it lacks is descriptive length, but that's absolutely fine, since if you need specific information about a sign/planet/house/aspect/transit/etc, you can find it easily online. Overall a great one, well worth my mo

This is a pretty solid primer for those who don't know much about astrology. It taught me quite a lot, even though this is not my first astrological read. The jargon can get repetitious at times, but I think that benefits the newbie because it helps form associations between the planets/signs and their corresponding energies. I certainly don't think this is the be-all-end-all of astrology books. It's a pretty good starting point, but there's a LOT out there that goes a bit deeper than Orion does ...more

Astrology for Dummies é um ótimo livro para adquirir novos conhecimentos acerca de signos e mapas astrais.
Este livro contém também várias curiosidades, exemplos e explicações. O único problema é tornar-se, por vezes, um pouco maçador devido à quantidade de informação e à sua disposição ao longo do livro.

If it has one star I liked it a lot
If it has two stars I liked it a lot and would recommend it
If it has three stars I really really liked it a lot
If it has four stars I insist you read it
If it has five stars it was life changing

Good reference - perhaps a bad one for drawing your own chart, but still the absolute basics are here, and great for someone that really has no desire to draw their own chart.

Not quite what I was hoping for bit a good basic starter for astrology. I was looking for something a little less horoscope style focused.

“At your happiest and best, you’re a free spirit, a cheerful wanderer, an honest and intelligent companion, and a philosopher who likes to ponder the big questions — preferably with a few pals and a plentiful supply of snacks. You see life as an ongoing quest for experience and wisdom, not as a search for security.” 0 likes
“In your eternal quest for experience and knowledge, you pursue a multitude of interests and you set ambitious, wide-ranging goals for yourself. You want to see the world and understand it, which is why your sign rules travel, philosophy, religion, law, and abstractions of all kinds. Sagittarius is freethinking, casual, open-minded, and optimistic. You connect easily with all kinds of people and are said to be lucky. The truth is that your spontaneous decisions and out-there gambles occasionally pay off, but what benefits you the most is your fearless attitude. Sure, troubles may come. No one is immune to that. But ultimately, buoyed by your curiosity and belief in the future, you bounce back. You look at it this way: What other choice is there?” 0 likes
