A true astrological encyclopedia:
James R. Lewis, "The Astrology Book: The Encyclopedia of Heavenly Influences"
Visible Ink Press | 2003-03-01 | ISBN: 1578591449 | 928 pages
"It is hard to imagine a more comprehensive reference encyclopedia to this topic than the volumen at hand."
American Reference Books
"Although aimed at the believer, Lewis' work may be confidently consulted by the skeptic seeking basic information about astrology."
"This is the one to have."
Starman walks among us again. Updated and expanded, The Astrology Book: The Encyclopedia of Heavenly Influences defines and explains more than 800 astrological terms and concepts from air signs to Zeus and everything in between. Ten years after the publication of The Astrology Encyclopedia, James R. Lewis updates and expands this definitive work on celestial forces for anyone seeking to expand their knowledge on the influence of the stars and other heavenly bodies on human personality, behavior, and fate.
A recent USA Today poll disclosed that more than 25 percent of the population has some belief in astrology. Lewis uses the power of the information age to explore the scientific, historic, and popular basis behind the ancient art, providing the reader with a thorough understanding of basic astrology. One thing is for sure: students, soothsayers, and star watchers everywhere will learn there's more to astrology than just the twelve signs of the Zodiac and never knowing all six winning lottery numbers at one time. Not just what's your sign, baby, but what's up with your chart?
Students of the sun and stars and the layman interested in knowing more about those passionate Scorpios or intuitive Pisceans can examine the total astrology culture, famous astrologers, heavenly bodies, and even pesky technical terms. And to further them on their star quest, The Astrology Book includes a special section on casting a chart, plus a new chapter that explains and interprets every planet in every house and sign. The text also includes a table of astrological glyphs and abbreviations, and a list of organizations, books, periodicals, and Web sites all dedicated to the study of influences reigning from the heavens.
