Red Wheel/Weiser
While there are numerous astrology books available, many are decades old and require you to wade through a morass of technical details just to get to the basics. In Learning Astrology, Damian Sharp provides a fun, fresh approach to understanding this ancient art, making it easily accessible to those who are completely new to the subject and/or put off by older, more complicated books. In clear, concise language and an easy-to-follow order, he provides insight into sun signs and planets, houses and aspects and shows us how to actually read an astrological chart, simply and accurately. And if you want the more technical details, Sharp provides those, too. By the end of the book, you'll be discussing conjunctions, sextiles, squares, and trines like a pro. Learn astrology from Damian Sharp and become your own astrologer.

When it comes to the likes of astrology - Is its place in our world really clear?

Is it a form of scientific study? - (or) - Is it a belief system more akin to a religion or philosophy?

Whatever - Not only does this exhaustively-written book cover astrology's long history - But it also thoroughly explains each one of the 12 zodiac signs, as well as introduce the reader to planet influences.

And, as a added bonus - This book gives the reader detailed instructions on how to draw up one's own astrological chart, too.

Competently written (with numerous illustrations and stills) by Damian Sharp - This compact volume is a well-rounded guide for all of those who believe in all that is astrological.
