5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for the beginning astrologer, 24 July 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Complete Astrology (Paperback)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantasic for the student, 17 Mar 2003

This review is from: Complete Astrology (Paperback)
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars ..'The book' for getting the basics ..and more !, 13 Feb 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Complete Astrology (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!!

By A Customer
This review is from: Complete Astrology (Paperback)
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.
