Everyone who has seriously studied the Virgin Mary's messages of Fatima and particularly Medjugorje knows that "divining" "astrology" and the likes are completely opposed to the teachings of Jesus Christ and the messages of Our Lady.
This is a bunch of hooey and an insult to Our Lady and Jesus Christ.
See Lev 19: 31" `Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God.
Lev 20: 6" `I will set my face against the person who turns to mediums and spiritists to prostitute himself by following them..

Format: Paperback
This work is a well-researched and well-documented account of nineteenth and twentieth century visions and sightings of the Virgin Mary, including the familiar Bernadette at Lourdes and Fatima.
Although this book is not intended to be an astrology text, there is a comprehensive glossary of astrological terms as well as basic explanations of various astrological principles interspersed throughout the text. Thus, a reader need not be familiar with astrological concepts in order to understand and enjoy the text. The stories of the sightings are very rich in detail.
Although the book carries a subtitle of "An Astrological Analysis of Divine Intercession", the analysis boils down to a preponderance of Virgo and Cancer in the 44 charts involved as well as a prominence of the Nodes of the Moon. While the author fully acknowledges that more questions are raised than are answered, the subtitle suggests that more astrological commonalities would be presented in such a book. The conclusion about Virgo and Cancer as the primary signs involved in such phenomena is hardly surprising. Anyone familiar with astrology knows that Virgo represents the archetype of the "Virgin" and Cancer, the "Mother".
Roberts really summarizes in terms of her philosophical perspective about the place of such visions within different cultures and religions. The basic message is that regardless of religious perspective or culture, we should all get along. There's nothing wrong with that message, and it is the main one that Roberts wants us to take away from her work. Her accounts of the Marian visions are rich, compelling, fascinating, and enjoyable. From a purely astrological perspective, there are few substantial conclusions, which indicates that this work is the beginning of more to come.

Blessed Virgin Nov. 1 2004
By Inner Spiral - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I found this book only two days ago and I am already thankful to have done so. One reviewer wrote in about astrology being against the teaching of Jesus. Reader's take note, this is not a christian book. This is a Marian book, about Mary, for Mary. Many people see the Blessed Virgin as Goddess, not simply the mother of christ. This book will take you through the apparitions of Mary at Lourdes, Fatima, and many others. I feel that with this work, Llewyllyn Publications is finally printing things worth while instead of the same old dribble over and over again under a different title. If you are a follower of Mary and want to experience her in your life to the fullest then buy this book, while it won't be an end all do all say all complete guide to this Blessed Goddess it will assist you on your journey. Peace and Prayers be with you.

Why are there so many sightings of Mary? This book has one possible answer April 4 2009
By Mad Max - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Marion apparitions have been a cultural phenomenon for hundreds of years. There have been many scholarly studies of these phenomena - which look at socio-political context of the sightings, potential economic reasons for the sightings, possible psychological reasons for the sightings, etc. (A good academic analysis is Encountering Mary).

This book asks whether astrology and celestial events may be a reason for the sightings. Even though I don't agree with all of the analysis here, I personally find these various explanations interesting. And, since I know very little about astrology, this book was a good opportunity to learn a little about both phenomena (the visions of Mary, and astrology).

There are many studies which demonstrate we are strongly affected by the moon, the stars, the tides, the seasons... so to me, this is a fair question. Are we more open to spiritual experience during certain times of the calendar, or during certain celestial events? Are these "hallucinations" coincide with the celestial calendar? Or, is it possible (as the author concludes) that events are happening in the stars themselves to cause these mass sightings.

If you are an open minded person with a sincere interest in these subjects, then I suspect you will enjoy this work.

Fatima pre announced by Spiritist groups Aug. 11 2006
By Giordano Bruno - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Or as we could say, "Everything you dont need to know about the true Fatima events". Yes, the old rumor is a conquerer of our crowds, without chances to know the real and original reports about Fatima events. Do they really know, ie. that the Portuguese daily press published in February 1917 a few reports made by Spiritist groups in Lisbon and Porto ( the major national cities )announced that "in May 13 a great anounce would happen". Well, the catholics believers can not see here a proof for their devotion; by the contrary, the Spiritists don't agree with the official Marian apparitions interpretation and they would not be the promotors of the present Fatima status. So, it's nonsense to think in a conspiracy catholic-spiritist in this preannounce in the portuguese press with 3 months in advance.

So, the traditional interpretation has to be revised. The believers will have to know the original reports on the phenomena and not pious third-hand slogans that repeat the well known rumor processs in Psychology. Who said that the Marian apparitions never could be understand by Science is mistaken. Try to read

"Heavenly lights" and "Celestial Secrets" by Portuguese historians Dr. Joaquim Fernandes and Fina d'Armada to learn what happened at Fatima 1917.
