This book is for you if you want to know more "nitty-gritty" information about the chart. There are good, positive descriptions of the 12 signs, houses, and 10 planets. She shows you how a chart is set up and how the planets move around the sky. She gives good, positive descriptions of planetary energy in each sign, and of aspects between planets.
I really like her section on the phases of the Moon and the Part of Fortune. She helped me understand how the two are related.
My only criticism is of the way this book is arranged. Planets and houses are mixed in with signs, so that Mars goes first (with Aries) and Venus appears in the Taurus section and so on. It can be difficult to quickly find what you're looking for.
