Format: Paperback
One of the first astrology books I bought, many years ago, it still makes interesting reading. With the main emphasis on the planets, Donna Cunningham provides an excellent overall introduction to chart interpretation and transits. It is obvious that this book is based on a great deal of practical experience working with astrology, and her extensive background in social work and mental health is a strong positive influence.
The approach to astrology here is all about empowering the individual. The planets mirror back to us the truth of our lives, and armed with this self-knowledge we can begin to take more responsibility for ourselves. The chart can help by showing more constructive uses of our basic traits. Cunningham is keen to avoid any cop-out as in blaming our chart or the planets for bad things in our lives. "Wrong thinking and wrong actions are at the root of most of our troubles" sums up her approach.
One unusual feature are comments on the meaning of the symbols for some of the planets and signs e.g. the glyphs for Jupiter and Saturn being upside down versions of each other. There are many other interesting bits and pieces. The final chapter is a very touching and moving account of an evening with astrological students who are recovering alcoholics, and their trip to an astronomical observatory.

Format: Paperback
This book has been raved about by many fine Astrological writers but it was not until I was an advanved student that I read it myself and so discovered a gem of modern Astrological Literature.
This book has that rare quality of giving you something more each time you read it. No matter how well you think you know the basic building blocks of astrology there is always more to add and The Astrological Guide to Self Awareness provides a fine instrument to give further inspiration concerning well loved material.
This is an excellent beginners book explaining the fundamental concepts clearly with examples while providing real value for money for you can read it again and again.

An excellent project. 16 Dec. 1999
By Matthew McWilliams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Donna Cunningham has produced a fine work here. This is a terrific manual for those who want to 'feel' what the planets mean as well as know their meanings on an intellectual level. She explains how we must all deal with all of the planets in our lives and how we can turn negative chartacteristics into positive ones. For example, a Neptune in the 1st house has the potential to be parasitical, and dependent on drugs or alcohol yet can also be a sensitive counsellor or talented musician. Her concluding chapter 'The Stars Via Subway' in which she takes her students on an excursion is one of the most heartfelt pieces of writing on astrology I have ever read. Compassionate and easy to understand, a worthwhile addition to anyones library.
