5.0 out of 5 stars A book Saturn would be proud of, 19 Jun 2007

This review is from: Saturn, Fatal Attraction (Paperback)
Adam Smith's new book on Saturn is a wonderful read. His writing is a real treat: wise, warm, funny, incisive, and elegant. He has a deep understanding of Saturn and the resonance the Saturnian principle has on the individual life, and manages to express complex information with great clarity. It is refreshing to read a book with so strong a focus on maturity; an attribute of human development that often gets lost in today's youth-focused culture. The book is full of good information throughout, but I have to single out the section on Saturn's transits through the houses as being particularly insightful and useful. My only criticism is that I wish the book was longer, and hope that in subsequent editions he will add more material on Saturn in the natal houses. I strongly recommend this book to anyone practicing astrology, or going through a Saturn transit, or simply curious about how it is that we grow up.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good update for our times, 30 Aug 2010

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Saturn, Fatal Attraction (Paperback)
As a practising psychological astrologer,I am always interested in books about astrology which contain original material.Having bought Liz Greene's "A New Look at an Old Devil" back when I was first learning astrology,I wondered what the author could add to the subject.
I was very pleasantly surprised to find some new ideas.Although it's a short book which took only 1 hour to read,the central theme is useful:Saturn helps us to develop and release our potential into the world.This is a sea change from Saturn being described as "limiting,restricting,cold ,dour etc".
I enjoyed his description of transits of Saturn which avoids the doom and gloom approach.The best way to apply this knowledge would be to read about your upcoming Saturn transit(s) to one of your natal planets and absorb the message that it carries.Then work on creating and putting the challenge into the real world whilst keeping the long view.Another approach is to look back through your life at major Saturn transits and with hindsight,notice how specifically they helped you grow.
I shall be recommending this book to my astrology clients.

4.0 out of 5 stars Something to read when Saturn is approaching, 2 Oct 2009
By 
This review is from: Saturn, Fatal Attraction (Paperback)
For any1 worried about an upcoming Saturn entry int their Sign wether its rising sign or Sun this book is surely worth a look and seems to be quite cheap here on amazon. most astrolgers I read about or listened to have said Saturn is really a significant planet when its effecting a horoscope, so this book is surely a good guide or even book worth reading in order to possible give somone a better perspective on what they might have to watch out for in the near future if they feel friends or family or themselves will be effected by this planet in a major way.But also to understand deeply waht Saturn is really all about this is also the book for you. Houses Saturn occupies aswell as signs and even various other planets are covered. Saturn to other planet transits are covered. Famous people who had Saturn transiting certain parts of their birth chart are discussed and waht happened to them during that transit and gives you a good insight as to the effects this might have on others with similar placement in their own chart. very worthwhile book to think about while reading.

A wonderful book written in a light style, easy to read. Filled with philosophy and wisdom.Adam Smith is a great astrological professional who has tackled a challenging planet. Learn how not to have to take Saturns influences laying down, discover how to manage its influence and take charge of its strengths. A great book for any one studying or shhowing and interest in astrology. If Saturn has a powerful effect upon you in your chart then understand it better and use its energies more wisely.

5.0 out of 5 stars First Class Saturn Book, 29 April 2008
By 
Paul Westran (Australia) - See all my reviews

This review is from: Saturn, Fatal Attraction (Paperback)
This is a very good book. I don't think Saturn is such a challenge as others might simply because the planet presents astrologers with such a plethora of commentary. Having said that, it does take an author who is intensely interested in these attributes and interested in communicating them in a way that makes them manageable on a personal level, to write a book about Saturn that is useful. I think Adam Smith has succeeded with great aplomb to outline the correlations associated with Saturn in such a user-friendly way. He also goes to some length to explain Saturn's influence using a large number of well known examples. First class.
