5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for serious beginning students of astrology, 28 Jan. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Inner Sky (Paperback)
An excellent book by a highly regarded author, "The Inner Sky" takes the reader through a gradual, systematic approach to weaving together the elements of the birth chart. Though this book is dense with information, author Steven Forrest strikes an easy-going and engaging tone that encourages rather than overwhelms the reader. Some information is given on the mechanics of how to cast a natal (birth) chart, but the primary focus is on understanding the characteristics of the houses, signs and planets, and how they interact with each other. Major aspects are covered, as well as the influence of retrograde planets. Rather than providing lists of rigid interpretations for each configuration, "The Inner Sky" teaches the reader what questions to ask, and where in the chart to look for the answers. The author takes the view that an astrological chart indicates inclination and opportunity, not irreversible fate. Most importantly, you will learn to organize the wealth of information present in the birth chart in a way that enables you to give a professional, fluid and intuitive interpretation without losing the structure of the chart. After practicing the methods outlined in the book, you should be able to do an "in person" chart interpretation without having to stop and consult reference materials. You will learn to identify the seeds of opportunity present in whatever chart you are looking at; you will be able to articulate, for each individual, the early warning signs that they are getting 'out of balance' with themselves; and you will discover what experiences, in which life arenas, will help them re-connect with their essential self. If you could only buy one book to learn natal astrology and the basics of chart interpretation, "The Inner Sky" would serve you well. For those interested in further reading, "The Inner Sky" contains an appendix of books recommended by the author, Steven Forrest, all of which are reputable and handily broken into "beginner's" and "advanced" categories.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the book that taught me how to think astrologically, 31 Oct. 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The Inner Sky (Paperback)
If you want to read just one book about astrology, this is the book I'd recommend. It's a simple, straightforward introduction to astrological symbols; it presents a vocabulary of planets, signs and houses and teaches you how to put them together yourself. Unpretentious, often humorous and completely good-natured, this book is rooted in the idea that humans have free will and that astrology is a creative art.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction to astrology, 14 July 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The Inner Sky (Paperback)
I wish I had this book when I was first learning astrology years ago! Steven does an excellent job explaining the mechanics and interactions of basic astrology. His illustrations are accurate and taken from everyday life. A great book for someone wanting to get a handle on this topic.
I recently heard Steven speak at an astrological conference, and he is as wonderful in person as this book suggests.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and informative for beginners, 21 Feb. 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The Inner Sky (Paperback)
This is the first "real" astrology book I ever read, and it really peaked my interest in the subject. Though rather cheesy at times, the tone of the book makes it qualify for "can't put it down" status. As far as content, well... it's good for beginners and very illustrative with it's explanations, but now when I pick it up I find little useful information. I'd recommend it as a gift for someone who is interested, yet skeptical and ignorant of what astrology really is.

This book is an absolute must for anyone who wants to understand and deepen his/her knowledge of astrology.
And it's not just informative and deep, it's also funny and well written.
On the back cover of the book there's a review by Richard Nolle which states that the book is "too good to miss": that is absolutely true!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book on learning astrology I have ever read., 1 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Inner Sky: How to Make Wiser Choices for a More Fulfilling Life (Kindle Edition)
Steve is a brilliant writer as well as astrology bringing the subject to life colourful vividly with wisdom and insight not only in the subject but also with deep understanding of the problems the an individual has in trying to make sense of so complex a symbol as a NATAL HOROSCOPE and provides unique step by step process to prevent the individual falling into the trap of getting lost in the details and and enabling the previously frustrated astrologer a means of getting a grasp on it. If I could give this book 10 stars I would.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent intro to astrology, 23 Jun. 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The Inner Sky (Paperback)
Steven Forrest is a funny compassionate guy, and I like the way he practices astrology. He teaches that the birthchart is not chipped in stone. Rather it shows the options we have if we make certain choices.
