It's unusual for a beginner's astrology book to contain anything that might make a professional astrologer sit up and take notice but Joanna's elegant and clearly laid-out guide to being your own astrologer does just that. Her observations about the lack of a particular element in a chart (earth, water, air, fire) are spot-on and demonstrate that this is not a run-of-the-mill 'cast your own chart' guide. Learning your own astrology is always more complcated than people imagine but Joanne has presented the clearest possible pathway to astrological self-knowledge. There's the usual suspects of different signs and elements and a concise guide to the planets in each aspect of the chart. She includes Chiron but none of the other 'astrological gravel' planets which ensures that she does not over-egg the pudding for the beginner. Even with a downloaded chart from the internet and no serious intent, the reader will have hours of fun with this book and learn several important new insights into their life.
