Enjoyable, surprising - and NOT an Astrology book!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Linda Goodman's Star Signs: The Secret Codes of the Universe (Paperback)This book will come as something of a surprise to those who are familiar with the author's "Sun signs" and "Love signs" books of Astrology
Star Signs is NOT an astrology book - it is much more broad based and esoteric than her previous works, and is an easily accessible, fun, yet serious guide to what she claims are ancient wisdoms including (and I quote):
Star Signs as a guide to your career - the work you were born to do
Numerology - the vital link between the power of numbers and astrology.
Lexigrams - the ancient codes revealing the hidden meanings of words.
Forgotten Rainbows - the power of gems and light, and how colours shape your life
Some of the observations and suggestions in Star Signs may seem startling, even unbelievable. Refreshingly, you are encouraged by the author to be sceptical - but to try out her ideas for yourself before deciding whether or not to accept them (of course she believes that you will discover that all of them will work!).
I have to admit to initially being doubtful, but so far, many of her suggestions DO seem to work (e.g. having your hair cut at different times of the lunar cycle depending on whether you want it to grow quickly, or slowly to save on barber's bills!) Some of the rather more far fetched ideas, I have yet to try, but I'm sure you will enjoy experimenting and making your own judgements!
Whatever conclusions you come to, this is an intelligent, well-written and thoroughly enjoyable book.
