When it comes to the likes of astrology - Is its place in our world really clear?

Is it a form of scientific study? - (or) - Is it a belief system more akin to a religion or philosophy?

Whatever - Not only does this exhaustively-written book cover astrology's long history - But it also thoroughly explains each one of the 12 zodiac signs, as well as introduce the reader to planet influences.

And, as a added bonus - This book gives the reader detailed instructions on how to draw up one's own astrological chart, too.

Competently written (with numerous illustrations and stills) by Derek and Julia Parker - This compact volume is a well-rounded guide for all of those who believe in all that is astrological.
