I will admit that this book is probably one of the better-written astrological texts that I have come across, but I can't help but notice that the author, while trying to avoid stereotypes and the typical astrological myths, still seems to get caught up in quite a few. I think that the two most misrepresented signs are Virgo and Scorpio, and I was pleased to know that I am not the only one who feels that way, as the author herself professed that she feels the same way. While doing a fantastic job of representing Virgos for who they actually are, instead of the neat-freak, obsessive-compulsive image that is amusingly used to represent them most of the time, I feel that the author completely missed her mark while trying to describe Scorpio, the other most misrepresented sign of the Zodiac. When are people going to stop portraying Scorpios as these enigmatic, strong-willed, yet emotional mysteries? All my life, I have been surrounded by Scorpios, and even after evaluating each of the ones that I am closest to individually, and with an open mind, I still don't see them as these 'penetrating, all-knowing, all-feeling, mysterious creatures.' This image is so ridiculous. I have no shame in writing that Scorpios are by far the absolute most selfish of the signs, even though they abhor this trait in others. Every single Scorp I know is self-pitying, and in a lot of ways, incredibly weak. Look, we'd all love to believe that there is one magical sign that seems so seething and unbearably erotic and exotic and just plain unique in comparison to the others, but honestly, is this the way that you REALLY perceive the Scorpios in your life?Read more ›

Liz Greene will blow you away. Somehow she has eerily succeeded in describing deeply personal truths to each and every sign. This is no vague fluff in newspapers and fortune cookies. I also have another book by Greene that is out of print entitled "Star Signs For Lovers" and I guard it carefully because anytime anyone reads even a few sentences they are shocked at the accuracy of the description of their personalities and tendencies both secret and expressed in relationships. Just don't tell your love about it unless you think they are ready to understand your shadow. Greene somehow intelligently puts into words what every individual already knows and didnt really understand about themselves. As you read this book, you will find yourself stopping and exclaiming "that is so true!". Ive seen it happen with all my friends, and I enjoy sharing their personal discoveries, especially the skeptics whose set beliefs are no match for Liz Greene. I recommend this book to EVERYONE, and NO! You cant borrow it!. This book is so well written with such simple and personal intelligence, and so many insights, I want to know more about its mysterious author. What is her sign? Liz Greene is the real thing, some kind of cosmic prohpet. I guarentee she will freak you out.

This is not a traditional information text, you won't find delineations of planetary positions or house emphasis. It is a book of Liz Greene's personal opinions and experience of the sun signs in relation to relationships...and it is wonderful. She writes of each sign individually; their potentials, their shadows, and the way they are expressed differently in men and women. She writes with humor and compassion, giving new insights on both signs with notoriously "bad" names and those who can seem to do no wrong in the horoscope columns. Reading it was not only enlightening but thoroughly enjoyable. She respects the intelligence of her audience, and get's herself across as one might to a valued fellow earthling.

I am a Sagittarian, and I am very excited when I was reading about my sign. I always think how happy would I be if I had live as a true Sagittarian. I have a friend who is of Capricorn. I shew her the Myth of Capricorn on this book, and she was shocked with the accuracy. Now she become an astrology lover.
I have been studying astrology for nearly 10 years. So far this is the best book I have ever read. As mentioned in this book, Astrology is not just about the personal behavior, but the motivation behind the behavior. Everyone has his own destination to go, and they have their own path to go. By understand myself, appreciating myself and live as myself will I become a contented and a whole person.

Format: Paperback
Despite its rather corny title and cover, this book is by far the best-written and clearest articulation of the archetypal nature of astrology as it intersects with the specifics of the psychology of the individual. It's influenced by Jung, not someone's half-baked *idea* of Jung, and this is also refreshing. Overall, it's the best book of its kind I've ever read--the *only* book I've ever read on "astrology", in fact, that lead me to feel I had come away with genuine psychological insights into myself, thus giving validity to a subject that is usually approached sophomorically at best.
