Overview of Astrology Basics
The transits of the planets and how they shape the different astrological signs are explained. The ruling planets, the elements, and the houses are expounded upon. The following concepts and how they affect everyday life are also taught: aspects, retrogrades, and eclipses. All of the information provided in this section is very basic, though. Do not expect more than a paragraph on each concept. This is not a book to reference for detailed information on how astrology works.
2010 Guide for Each Astrological Sign
The authors have released "Tips for the Year" in advance. With their permission, below are some excerpts from their tips for each astrological sign for 2010.
Aries (March 21-April 19)- The full enterprising power of Aries is yours when you accept the limits of society that require more precision this year. Whether you like it or not, you must slow down to get what you want.
Taurus (April 20- May 20)- Your potential to transform your life is incredible this year -- but your resistance to change is equally great.Similarly, you will find happiness this year as long as you remain open to surprises.
Gemini (May 21- June 20)- Overcoming your own resistance to fully feeling your emotions enables you to uncover buried treasure that can enrich your life for many years to come.
Cancer (June 21- July 22)- Seek out those with talents you admire so that you can learn from the best. Step outside your comfort zone; you'll discover that it's not foolish to take risks. There are enormous rewards when you invest in your own excellence.
Leo (July 23- August 22)- It's true that this year brings great potential, but exhausting yourself trying to achieve the impossible dream is not a sensible strategy. Heed the counsel of wise friends and seasoned professionals before making any life-changing decisions.
Virgo (August 23- September 22)- Challenges to the core truths you cling to can be a source of irritation and a cause of physical, mental, and emotional fatigue. The battles you face, though, are not with outside forces but within yourself. It's time to reexamine the ideas that have kept your life in order for years, but may be holding you back.
Libra (September 23- October 22)- Your overall success during the coming years will be based on your ability to pay careful attention to your long-term goals rather than short-term successes.
Scorpio (October 23- November 21)- Surrendering some self-control to reveal your emotion can feel risky, of course, but it's a great way to open your heart and enhance your creativity. Making mistakes is not the road to failure but the laboratory of invention. You can surprise yourself by discovering new talents when you put away the heavy hammer of self-criticism.
Sagittarius (November 22- December 21)- Open yourself to new philosophies, learn about new technologies, and re-create your future by being more conscious in the present moment.
Capricorn (December 22- January 19)- Your journey this year could be one of extremes as the most visionary planets -- Jupiter and Uranus -- light up your life with exciting new perceptions while the most conservative ones -- Saturn and Pluto -- keep stepping in to turn down the volume of your enthusiasm.
Aquarius (January 20- February 18)- Don't waste too much energy resisting the inevitable. Instead, focus on the exhilaration you'll feel once you've overcome the obstacles and your life is heading in a new direction.
Pisces (February 19- March 20)- The highs and lows you experience this year accentuate the contrast between your greatest hopes and darkest fears. Expansive Jupiter in your sign makes your life seem so big that even the smallest act can appear to take on enormous importance.
