Anybody who read Linda Goodman's 'Love Signs' in their teenage years (and that's when most of us read it, I think) will remember the bits of poetry scattered across its chapters. They were all excerpts from this book and her other, 'Gooberz'. I've been looking for 'Venus trines at Midnight' for many years and only came across it recently.

A good amount of astrology has to be known to understand this. At the very least, I would have been lost if I didn't know as much as I knew. Linda Goodman is such a magical writer, and it's noticeable through her astrology books. It's good to know she created this gem to go along with the rest of her astrological wisdom.

Linda Goodman's poetry caused me to appreciate her even more as a writer. A must-have for any literature-loving astrologer who collects astrology books!

Found this on the free books bookshelf at my library. Eeeh her poems are kind of elementary. But I like the efficiency and condensed writing of poetry, so.

These range from so-so to really good. I have to say some of these read as if Goodman said to herself, Gee, I need to write something about Neptune, too, don't I? Let me see what I can scratch together. Others seem to come right from the heart, though.

Nice collection of poems with an astrological bent. The good ones are really good (and there are a few that really touched me), but some are probably more open to appreciation by those with a deeper understanding of astrology and sunsign attributes.
