Astrology for Lovers

Liz Greene’s Astrology for Lovers, first published in 1986, is still in print. It’s no exaggeration to say that Astrology for Lovers is one of the greatest books out there on the twelve signs. In her book, the astrology writer delves into the psyches of the zodiac’s signs to reveal their defining characteristics and nuances. The stories associated with each zodiac sign can be found in this fascinating astrology tome. Unique to this work is its depiction of the negative aspects of each zodiac symbol. The “irresponsible-child syndrome” of Gemini is humorously described, as are the “guilt-trip-power trip” and “possibly deadly passivity” of Pisces. Greene argues that she presents a balanced perspective of astrology and claims that she is excessively critical of the zodiac signs. More depth is given to the elements, and some new perspectives are offered. Take Greene’s words on water signs as an example:

Charmingly infantile about the world of abstract ideas. The helpless female type of both sexes knows nothing about all that political stuff because it’s just so terribly complicated and boring. Water can be pretty irresponsible on a broad social level.”

The author argues that there is no absolute right or wrong way to be in astrology and that a Scorpio is not inherently inferior to a Sagittarian. This book, Astrology for Lovers, will keep you on the edge of your seat with its in-depth analysis of all twelve zodiac signs.

From a chapter of the book, the following is taken:

Don’t think the groupie is limited to the shadow side of the Sagittarian women. It’s not. There are as many hangers-on among the male sex in these fields as there are women; and the shadowy Sagittarian of the male variety is no more averse to using a sexual relationship with a glamorous or well known woman to get him into a position of advantage (no pun intended) than the female variety is. Having spent a couple of years working in the Hollywood recording business, I had ample opportunity to observe the groupie phenomenon. It’s observable in any profession where fame, glamour, colour and excitement are part of the show. And the really good groupies, the ones who managed to build a veritable career out of basking in somebody else’s limelight, were usually the Sagittarians. Astrology for Lovers
