Astrology has been a passion of mine since a young age, but at that time I only really delved into my sun sign. It wasn’t until I was in my twenties that I even learned what my moon sign was (It’s Aquarius, by the way). At that time I was reading a book that had all of the planetary and house info that you get from a natal chart, but it was too difficult to figure it all out. These days you can do all of that online, sometimes for free.
What I didn’t like about doing my birth, or natal, chart online was reading what everything meant online… I am a book girl, always will be. That means that holding a book in my hands with the info I need will always be my preferred method of learning. Louise Edington’s book, Modern Astrology, is just what I needed.
So, why do you need this book and a birth chart? Have you read your horoscope and spent hours trying to figure out how that “prediction” actually fit into your life? It’s sometimes hard to do because your sun sign is only one small part of who you are when it comes to astrology. By knowing where the planets were and what signs were ascending at your time and place of birth, you can understand yourself better.
I found this book to be extremely informative. I went through it with my birth chart, highlighting all of my planets and houses, and then read what it had to say. I thought, “Yep, that’s right,” “That explains things,” and “That is totally me.” Sure, there were a couple that explained me more when I was younger and less jaded.
A bonus within this book is that it contains journal prompts, as well as other things that will inspire you to learn more about your birth chart. I gave this book a five-star review on Goodreads because it is easy to use and understand, it is extremely informational on the subject matter, and it’s written in a way that allows you to enjoy reading all of the info within, even if it isn’t about your own signs!
I received this book free from the publisher, and this is an honest and unbiased review.
