Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have only recently taken an interest in astrology, and after looking at a "coffee table" book on astrology and the planets i knew i have to find out more. Oken's Complete Astrology is the perfect guide for anyone that wishes to take astrology that one step further than most. Quotes and footnotes throughout the edited text are wonders to be seen, in that "occult" writers actually know what footnotes are and how they are to be used effectively!
I read through the text, underline important parts and phrases in pencil, and then write my own notes from the text into my "astro-folder".
Oken treats the reader like educated and intelligent people who want to further their studies into this great art, science, and philosophy.
The text can seem like a doorstop, but it is 3 books in one concise volume, and isnt difficult to work with once you break the spine (dont you just hate breakin the spines!)
A wonderful work for anyone that has a brain and is interested in finding out more about astrology.
Other authors i would recommend are Arroyo, Marks and Tompkins!

Format: Paperback
A real direct approach to astrology with a feeling caring attitude. Most books are harder to understand and 'turn off' the student/reader.Mr. Oken has been able to ride over this hurtle and present the subject matter in both an esoteric referenced context and relatable to the science as it pertains to you. Go for it..it is actually 3 books in one..a great deal ..and even better via amazon.com!!

I have several books on astrology but this is the first one that shows you how to cast a chart like a professional astrologer. I was amazed by his excellent writings regarding astronomy v. astrology.

I have been teaching astrology for years and have recommended this book to all of my students. Another good teaching tool is Karma and Your Sun Sign by Joan Kilgen. Thanks to these authors for making our teaching easier.

An excellent resource 10 Nov. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've read earlier incarnations of these texts over the years and am pleased to see it all collected in one volume. The writing is clear and easy to understand. This is a great book for beginners. Once you master the basics, I would highly recommend Horary Astrology Plain and Simple by Anthony Louis to further your education in classical astrological techniques.

Invaluable reference book for astrologers 4 May 2000
By Her Rabbitness - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
No astrological library is complete without this book. Designed for quick reference to signs, planets, houses, and aspects, I use it constantly when interpreting charts. It's the first book I recommend to others interested in studying astrology.

A must have 21 Nov. 2007
By DJ Hancock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've had a copy of COMPLETE ASTROLOGY by Alan Oken since the early 1990s and it just keeps on delivering relevant and useful insights into the astrological field. I haven't yet been able to absorb all the wisdom contained within it, every now and then new passages leap out which I could've sworn were not there before.

Plenty of 'a-ha' moments in this book, including much material that dove-tails into other disciplines such as sacred geometry and occultism in general.

I'd give COMPLETE ASTROLOGY six stars if it was available, and I'm not even a practicing astrologer! What's even better is that you can now purchase the revised and updated 2006 edition - so go for it.

Regards,
Daniel John Hancock
