Even though I do not have a great interest in astrology, I entered into this book with the thought that Astrology does have some meaning and I'm not talking about those silly newspaper horoscopes! When properly done, as this book shows how, and it really does work, however to do a full chart takes a fair amount of time and quite a lot of 'research' (all the information is included in the book) and requiring quite a bit of information from the subject about their birth (Date, Time, Place, etc.) I do not really have the will (or time) to do a full chart (at the moment), but having read the basic profiles of each sign and (without plotting) having done some basic (Date/approx. time) profile of a couple of people, it already does make an outline of the what the person is like, and even though I havn't gone further into the profile, I could see it getting more and more specific. Brilliant book, with a good introduction, taking you through all the required steps to completing a chart and plenty of info to decipher it!
