Book Description

In this completely upbeat, positive, and radically expanded edition of their classic book on the astrology of relationships, Steven Forrest and Jodie Forrest emphasize freedom of choice, honest communication, and mutual psychological understanding as the keys to satisfying, lasting intimacy. Drawing on countless hours with clients, the Forrests weave a coherent blend of astrology, modern psychology and reincarnation. You will learn synastry - the art of working with relationship charts - from the ground up. Beginners as well as professional astrologers will particularly love the extensive and detailed 'cookbook' sketches of specific configurations. Saturn in your House of Marriage? Your Sun squares your partner's Venus? Just look it up. The first edition of "Skymates" became a cult classic; this revised and updated edition was so big it was split into two volumes. Look for Skymates 2, which deals just with the composite chart.

Beginners as well as professional astrologers will particularly love the extensive and detailed 'cookbook' sketches of specific configurations. Saturn in your House of Marriage?

5.0 out of 5 stars Master astrologers at the top of their game 22 Jun. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
One of the many qualities of ANY work by Steve Forrest is his wonderful ability to explain the sometimes difficult and complex field of astrology in such a refreshing and often humourous way that it makes learning with him such a joy. This experience is enhanced and complimented further in this book with the help of his wife Jodie who clearly knows her subject well and helps balance the delicate relationship subject matter perfectly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, the synastry Bible! 9 Feb. 2002
By Diana Griffin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I've always loved my copy of the Forrests' earlier version of Skymates, which has become kind of a collectors item since it went out of print years ago. I kept having to get it back from friends I'd loaned it to. I ordered the new one, not sure if it could be very different. But it's a major re-write with lots of new material. The best part for me are the huge "cookbook" sections where you can just look up what it means if your Venus conjuncts somebody else's Saturn and so forth. Their writing style is mostly simple and easy to understand, but their interpretations are the deepest and the most "real" I've ever seen anywhere. There's a long section about F Scott Fitgerald and Zelda Fitzgerald that actually made me cry, it was so beautiful. That part also shows how to put all the details and techniques the authors describe into a kind of "big picture," so you're left with more than a head full of unconnected ideas. They've got some past-life stuff in the book too - the soul-reasons behind certain issues a person might have in relationships. Everybody will have to make up their own mind about that, but it all rang really true for me. This is the synastry book I've been waiting for. I recommend it totally.

5.0 out of 5 stars Romeo and Juliet Star-Crossed No More! 8 Feb. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
If Shakespeare's lovers had had this book, things might not have ended so badly...
"Skymates" doesn't tell you that if you're a Cancer, you should never marry a Scorpio. The Forrests respect our freedom to choose our mates; they use astrology -- with humor, intelligence, and compassion -- to help us make the best of the relationships we have.
Early in the book, Chapter Two offers a quick overview of the building blocks of astrolgy: signs, planets and houses -- this way, one doesn't have to be a certified professional astrologer to use "Skymates."
The Forrests then cover in-depth the houses that make up the Arc of Intimacy and detail the significance of having planets in those houses.
After that, they move into the synastry portion of the book, touching briefly but not boringly on the mathematics of calculating aspects, then what the various major aspects mean: conjunctions, oppositions, trines and squares. Configurations are covered in a sizeable "cookbook" section where couples can look up their charts: Your Mars is square your partner's Mars -- what does that mean? Look it up and find out!
They put it all together using famous artistic pairings: Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend of The Who, and Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald.
Anyone interested in improving his or her own relationships should pick up a copy of this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little thin, but useful 4 Aug. 2006
By A reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The book is filled with astro-psycho-babble, but there are also many perceptive insights. Just don't expect too much detail. For example, when discussing synastry aspects, the authors do not give individual descriptions of the effects of conjunctions, trines, squares and oppositions, but rather group them under the blanket headings of "flowing" or "challenging" aspects. Likewise, when discussing the effect of one partner's planets falling in another's houses, the authors do not discuss the unique impact of specific planets, but rather give a blanket interpretation for what it means for any of Partner A's planets to be in Partner B's 1st house, for example. So you see, there is not a lot to sink your teeth into here unless you are a beginner at synastry. This book is worthwhile for some of its insights, especially considering the dearth of good books about synastry, but it's better for beginners and starry-eyed astro-karma enthusiasts than for the medium or advanced practical astrologer.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best astrology of relating book I've ever read! 23 Feb. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This astonishing book is a whole lot more than just a reprint of the Forrests' earlier classic. They discuss the astrology of relationships in so much depth and with such detail, and with such positive, affirming attitudes, that I know I'll refer to this book over and over again. The "cookbook" stuff alone is worth the cover price--what it means if your Venus squares your mate's Sun and all that--but most of all it's the spirit behind this work that is so precious, that committed love can truly work in this day and age, and that it can be improved.
5.0 out of 5 stars Just Great! 17 July 2011
By Meeshell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is fantastic. I wish I had read it in my twenties. Would have saved me from a few too many "opportunities for growth". The only drawback I find in the book is the extremely positive take on almost every connection between the charts. If they say the slightest thing negative, multiply by 10. Most of us are not that evolved to be able to deal with some of the more challenging aspects ie Saturn squaring the Sun or Moon.
Still, this is a great book.
