PRAISE FOR THE FORRESTS WORK:
As intelligent and cogent as it is poetic. Sting
Properly practiced, astrology addresses the apparent consonance or dissonance between our lives and the sky. Jodie and Steven Forrest bring us into that space, and into the spaces between us, with grace, humor and informed awareness. In this book, astrology is the portal through which youll examine relationships in a manner worthy of any of the world's wisdom traditions. We should also describe the book this way: AstrologyNot Just for Astrologers Anymore. Scott Ainslie, musician (CDs: Jealous of the Moon and Terraplane) and author of Robert Johnson/At The Crossroads.
Like all the Forrests' work, Skymates is rich with wisdom and humor. Well-documented research is deftly folded into lyrical parables that reveal the mysteries of relationships and offer equipment for living.Steven and Jodie take astrology to a new level by returning it to its original intent: to offer us an outline for our evolutionary paths so we can discover our own meaning in life. Their work infuses you with wit, wisdom, and humor along the way...and with a wealth of information found nowhere else.

Robert Griffin, keyboardist for The Squirrel Nut Zippers, and for Katharine Whalen and the Jazz Squad; solo pianist (CD North Carolina, A State of Music).
There are very few astrology books in Turkey. You can count them by the fingers of two hands. Three of them are by Steven and Jodie Forrest. The Inner Sky is like the Bible (which is the Quran here) for my students, in the sense that they carry it everywhere they go. From The Changing Sky, they are learning how to create their own future, and from Skymates, I personally have learned what a soulmate is...I think they are great astrologers and writers. Baris Ilhan, astrologer, publisher.
Steven and Jodie Forrest's work, specifically in this case Skymates, has shown me that astrology IS a spiritual and powerful tool with a place in the 21st century and beyond. Their teaching powers, in clarity and real life examples, are second to none. They are far more than amazing astrologers and prove it within these pages. Bill Janis, Promotion/Marketing Manager for Reprise Records.
Jodie and Steve access an incredible amount of the world's knowledge of spirituality, psychology, mythology and the symbols of our quest for self-awareness and actualization. Equal to their knowledge is their ability to integrate the essentials and teach them through astrology. It's a rich discovery to find wit and wisdom, knowledge and intuition all blended in one person. To find it in both is indeed a treasure. Gloria D. Karpinski, author of Barefoot On Holy Ground and Where Two Worlds Touch.
Steven and Jodie's intuitive yet scientific approach makes this a wonderful guide to relationships. Their sound astrological principles are undeniably helpful, informative and make good practical sense. Danny Kee, Director of A&R, Warner Brothers Records.

Ive gotten readings from Steven Forrest for ten years now. What he`s done is not to predict my future but to help me meditate on some of the warnings I might look out for, based on a scientific but more importantly a compassionate approach. These readings have improved the quality of my life.

Skymates is an unforgettable literary journey that will enrich your personal consciousness while ultimately leading to more fulfilling relationships. Laure Redmond, author of Feel Good Naked.
One of the first appointments I made after the birth of my daughter was for an astrology reading with Steven and Jodie Forrest. Fifteen years later, I still refer to it and am grateful for its insight in helping me honor her uniqueness and support her strengths and weaknesses. I can't imagine a more valuable gift that parents could give a child. Susan B. Reintjes, psychic, author of Third Eye Open: Unmasking Your True Awareness.
To write a powerful book on the astrology of relationships takes two things: a vast knowledge of astrology and a fantastical, loving relationship in life. When these two things merge, the results are nothing short of miraculous. Caution: insight and miraculous relationship knowledge inside.
