Format: Paperback
There are many excellent beginner level astrology books available today, including this one. What makes "Practical Astrology" special is its clarity and holistic approach that links astrology to other metaphysical systems (although you don't have to know anything about them to understand the book). Priscilla Costello is a long-time professional astrologer who is a fountain of knowledge in many esoteric areas. She has obviously put a lot of thought into how to organize her material, and she does a fantastic job of condensing the vast topic of modern astrology into such a concise book! (The Wiser Concise Guide books are meant to be just that--concise.) Ms. Costello not only explains how the planets, signs, elements/modalities, houses and aspects work in the chart, she also provides an excellent "cookbook" for beginners (ready-made interpretations of planets in signs and houses, and the aspects). And she includes an easy-to-use system for bringing the information together as a whole and how to figure out what's the most important. Astrologers at all levels of knowledge will get something out of this book. Ms. Costello has written a wonderfully comprehensive, clear, enjoyable and useful book that doesn't require a huge commitment of time and energy to read, understand and start using it to interpret charts. Very highly recommended!

If you're serious about learning astrology, this is the book for you! Nov. 6 2008
By Bon Rose Fine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is among the very best basic astrology texts I've ever seen and I highly recommend it. As I've had the privilege of hearing Priscilla Costello lecture on several occasions, I had high expectations for this book and she did not disappoint. In fact, my expectations were surpassed. It's amazing to see this much essential information for the beginning astrologer so efficiently presented. She even offers an overview and history of the different house systems, a topic rarely tackled in typical introduction to astrology primers. Priscilla also offers an extensive bibliography of classic astrological books, and "Practical Astrology" is every bit as much of a "must-have" for the serious student.

A Modern Classic Handbook on Astrology Nov. 10 2009
By Brian Emo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This comprehensive textbook conveys an astounding amount of information in a deceptively slim volume - efficiently organized, concise, and beautifully written. Rarely have the nuts and bolts of astrology been presented with such clarity, insight, and precision.

It's both an essential study guide and a trusted reference ... a book to be read and reread.

PRACTICAL ASTROLOGY is a modern classic that should never go out of print.

A superb text. May 25 2009
By Jackie Slevin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I read this book in two sittings. It's a superb text with all pertinent info
condensed into a highly readable format without trivializing the sacred art and science of astrology.

Easy to Understand -- highly recommended Oct. 20 2008
By Sally K. Palaian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is chock full of practical information about astrology. It is well written and guides the reader through the necessary steps for understanding astrological principles. It balances philosophy, psychology and spirituality to demonstrate how astrology can help a person to grow.

It's worth it to buy this book just to see the example of Oprah Winfrey's astrological chart!
