    In print for nearly two decades, The Only Astrology Book You'll Ever Need truly stands up to its title. However, should you plan to make a career as an astrologer you will, of course, need further study. Beginning with the Sun signs and moving on through the remaining planets, as well as more obscure influences such as the Ascendant, Moon signs, Decanates and Cusps of each sign, the book is well thought out and the information presented in a logical and orderly manner In addition the author expl In print for nearly two decades, The Only Astrology Book You'll Ever Need truly stands up to its title. However, should you plan to make a career as an astrologer you will, of course, need further study. Beginning with the Sun signs and moving on through the remaining planets, as well as more obscure influences such as the Ascendant, Moon signs, Decanates and Cusps of each sign, the book is well thought out and the information presented in a logical and orderly manner In addition the author explains the steps necessary to erect a chart in simple terms. Without including any un-necessary information Woolfolk includes everything that you need to get a decent idea of what each element in your chart means and provides an accurate method of putting all this information together in an easy to understand format. In addition, she describes a method of comparing one's chart to that of another, called Synastry, in order to determine their level of compatibility with one another. Had the author stopped at this point, the book would still be an invaluable tool in and of its self; however Woolfolk has also included a plethora of miscellaneous information not found in other books on astrology including a detailed analysis of the amorous nature of each sign by gender, as well as advice on seducing an individual based on his or her Sun Sign. There's an entire chapter devoted to maintaining good health, with advice regarding a proper diet and a few words about each sign's erogenous zones. For those who enjoy a little science to balance their magic, the book contains detailed astronomical information regarding each of the planets, as well as their mythological history and correspondences. In addition, the author has included the legend behind each of the signs of the zodiac, as well as a brief history of astrology and a comprehensive dictionary of terms. The charts in the back of the book which indicate in which sign each of the planets are in the zodiac through to the year 2025 also doubles as an almanac, an invaluable tool for Wiccans and Pagans who observe astrological hours in the timing of the spells and rituals. Over all, The Only Astrology Book You'll Ever Need is a very good introduction to the topic of Astrology and contains all the basics needed to familiarize yourself with the principles of Astrology and get you started on erecting your own chart and understanding exactly what it means. That being said, should you decide to advance in your studies the book does not address the principles behind The Nodes of the Moon, The Part of Fortune, The Asteroids, or Retrogrades. However, it is an excellent reference for the casual reader and the serious student alike.

    Really great for getting a really complete overview of what astrology is, how it works, and how to understand your chart but loses points for a lot of "yikes" moments including but not restricted to: - personality descriptions based upon gender stereotypes (men's aggressive traits are theirs, but women's refer to what type of man they look for) - outdated views on population & environment - that awkward section where the author talked about the astrological contributions of ancient civilizations w Really great for getting a really complete overview of what astrology is, how it works, and how to understand your chart but loses points for a lot of "yikes" moments including but not restricted to: - personality descriptions based upon gender stereotypes (men's aggressive traits are theirs, but women's refer to what type of man they look for) - outdated views on population & environment - that awkward section where the author talked about the astrological contributions of ancient civilizations while simultaneously referring to them as primitive barbarians, nearly blatantly stating that it's amazing such stupid people could do something so smart - that very awkward section where the author attributes all the "us" vs "them" evil in the entire world to radical Islam (and only it - all other religious/political issues are apparently fine) I have a slightly older edition, so I don't know if updated versions are a little less sprinkled with moments that make you go YIKES. However, this is the best and most complete book on astrology, its history, and each sign + planet that I've found and it really is the only astrology book you'll ever need (except for the times you've got to do your own research if you want a less problematic description).

    The title of this book could not be truer! I had the original purple first edition when I was only a teenager in high school, casting birth charts for all of my friends who thought this was so cool.

    This book is AMAZING! I use it as a reference ALL THE TIME! I wish it came in pocket size (lol!) As a wanna be astrologer I find this information to be incredibly helpful and most importantly incredibly accurate. It has helped me better understand the basics of astrology and I'm not able to put together basic birth charts for friends and family with ease.

    When I started studying astrology, this was the first book I read. Very comprehensive but simply written and great for beginners who are just figuring out what sign their moon is in. The charts in the book are not always going to be the best indicator for planetary placements, so it's best to go to a site such as astro.com or astrology.com to get your natal chart. Then you can use the book to help you figure what all those planets mean.

It goes into every aspect of astrology, (sun signs, moon signs, ascendant signs); categories often overlooked, but equally as important as the sun signs.

The Moonsign is the part of you that you see.Your Ascendant is the sign that reflects your outward demeanor and to a great extent determines how the outside world looks at you." Great read and book to return to often!

    Summary: Great book. I think it might have been one that was given to me when I was 16. After more than 3 decades of learning, I reread and still think it's one of the best. I'm not quite even sure how to review this. It's really comprehensive and does not stop at silly descriptions of the signs. I would say that if you're a complete novice you really do need to give the entire book a look through before plunging in.

I think when I was young, I read it but was so overwhelmed that I did not really think through what Woolfold is saying. You have to use all the houses, signs, and planets together along with the aspects to really understand a chart and even then you are really only getting to natal. It will take years of memorization and having all of these elements become second nature before you really are worth your salt in this area. Still, after more than 3 decades and having studied a lot of stats and stats models, I am still amazed that the astrological chart is one of the best predictive models I have ever studied. It's worth the dedication if you are interested in this sort of stuff. This is a great place to start.

What I enjoyed the most was the descriptions of all the signs (Rising, Sun, Moon) and how they should be read and then each of the planets and their significance. I jumped around in this book because it's more of a reference manual, but I read all the major section except for the Houses of the zodiac which is next on my list. If anything, this book is a ton of fun and absolutely fascinating. If you enjoy astrology, I highly recommend it! Pick it up, keep it on your shelf, and use it to examine all of your family and friends. I bet it's right in 90% of circumstances :)

    Despite the book’s title, definitely not the only astrology book you’ll ever need, especially if you’re interested in deeper insights on one’s chart. As the author herself said, no book could ever be packed with all the information on astrology, but this one includes important info for those starting out, such as those regarding Sun, Rising and Moon signs.

    I love this book. It's a great reference for your astrological signs. You learn your sun sign, your moon sign, your planet, your cusps, your decanets (sp?) your houses, etc. You can even create a whole chart for yourself! This book is recommended for all to have in their library.

    This great astrology guide is chock-full of fascinating and accurate information. I’m definitely a true Gemini! The detailed how-to instructions for creating my own chart is an excellent tool. Since the book was written before astronomers nixed Pluto as a planet the charting was a little confusing at first, but for amateur astrology followers like myself it’s very insightful.

So now that I've gotten my completely unnecessary preface out of the way... I enjoyed this book. I think it's informative and interesting, and it does a good job at covering all the basics of astrology. It has thoughtful and detailed descriptions of all the signs and planets as well as how they relate to one another. It gives a solid introduction to moon signs, rising signs, houses, and cusps. It talks about aspects and the basics of interpreting birth charts and horoscopes. There's a load of information that's delivered in a thorough yet easy-to-digest manner, and I would say it's an excellent foundational book to have for anyone who's interested in astrology. And the charts and tables in the back of the book were fantastic. I love that there were tables for the sun, moon, and every planet. It was a great reference, and I liked that I didn't have to get on the internet to look up my chart. I could (basically) remind myself just by flipping to the back. The only criticism I would have is that I wish the author would have discussed the signs in the houses. She discusses the planets in the houses, which was great, but I would have liked to know, for example, what it means to have Virgo in my Fourth House. Perhaps getting into the signs in the houses would have been way too much to cover in a book that's already over 500 pages, but I wish it had been worked in. (For the record, Woolfolk does use Oprah's birth chart as an example throughout the sections on houses and birth chart interpretation, which can be used as a guide when interpreting your own chart.) I definitely would have preferred this over "The Sun Signs in Love" and "Astrology and Health" chapters. I just skimmed over these parts because they're of very little interest to me. But anyway, I enjoyed slowly reading through this book over the past several weekends, and I think it'll be a great reference book as well as a conversation starter with friends. If you're interested in astrology, I'd definitely recommend adding this one to your library. Woolfolk is clear that this isn't an all-encompassing astrology book; she adds that no book could ever cover everything in astrology because it's such a vast field. But she has created the perfect book for starters with everything you could really need. As she says in her introduction, "I hope this will not be the only astrology book you'll ever want - merely the only one you'll ever need."

Like televangelists, and snake-oil salesman, these publishers prey on the vulnerable. The authors are mentally ill: suffering from 'magical thinking' and delusions. Worst of all, most of them can't write worth a damn. Llewellyn Worldwide is the absolute worst on both counts. I wouldn't even trust their overpriced CALENDARS to be accurate. These books are also big offenders on the the 'cultural appropriation' front. In fact, they're in the running for worst case ever. So-called 'eclectic witches' steal aspects of other religions and mythology. They make it clear that they don't understand them, or feel the need to, before shitting in someone else's bed. The publishers/authors then profit off this, leaving the reader less smart and more broke. The living Venn diagram of demographics for these books would look like this: She's a white, American woman. She dropped out of college to attend massage/cosmetology school. Growing up, her strict parents took her to church every Sunday. She kissed a girl 10 years ago, and likes Katy Perry. To quote Holden from Chasing Amy, "Over- or underweight [people] who don't get laid - they're our bread and butter." Though a copypasta of it, these books never tell you about hermeticism. They don't prime you to understand hermeticism. Hermeticism, by the way, is also total bullshit. It is, at least, historic -- and seminal in almost all spooky fiction involving rituals or alchemy. If I give one of these books anything above 2 stars, it's a decent example of this type of book. It might have a redeeming feature, like reference material for fictional world-building. Having worked in this field, including sales of these exact books, I can tell you... the fix is in, they know it, don't buy this stuff.

I (Taurus) was entertaining family for the weekend~ my mother and sister (Scorpio and Libra) were kind enough to come and see the play I performed in and after a fun-filled day about town, they settled down as I opened this tome and read them their secrets. They giggled and nodded as I read an overview of their signs~ roaring laughter ensued as they heard about the roles they take in relationships~ it was all so true. Eyebrows raised when I read them their ideal career paths, for we had all ended up in several of the vocations our signs mentioned! Yet jaws truly dropped when they heard about the area of their bodies which their zodiac has precedence over. All three of us had gone through very specific ailments connecting to what our signs preside over. My sign has power over the ears, throat and vocal chords, for example. As an avid swimmer, I often had earaches as a child and a life-long addiction to abusing Q-tips, leading to infections, even recently. Whenever I get sick, it starts and ends with a sore throat and last year I had a long bout of bronchitis (from performing outside in the cold for 7 hours~ it lingered for months and affected another performance, sadly). Delving deeper, my sister's sign presides over the lumbar region. She went through bone cancer in her late 20's, specifically in that area, where they had to rebuild after extracting the tumors. (On a good note, both of our favorite places to be touched also happen to align~ the neck for me and the small of the back for her.) I also loved reading about planetary positions at the time of birth and how they differently influence the picture. This book is great fun and can be eye-opening the further you explore your signs! As an artist and performer, I lead a delightfully creative and expressive life and I enjoyed relating to the creative and powerful, yet gentle, Taurus way.

    I love this. I borrowed it from a friend in high school about 20 years ago, and now I own it on kindle. This book has given me a lot of insight into myself, friends, family, even my fav celebs when I'm bored enough to look up their charts. Speaking of which, I'm currently using Kelis' cookbook, which I will be reviewing. I decided to look her up. I was fascinated to find that she had her Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter in Leo. Like holy shit is that intense. I would not get along with her I love this. I borrowed it from a friend in high school about 20 years ago, and now I own it on kindle.

Like holy shit is that intense. I would not get along with her at all... and I'm shocked that Nas, my fellow Virgo, tolerated her as long as he did. I've also had fun looking up Eminem (workaholic according to astrology) and Lil Wayne (who had a very sexual chart - no wonder he has 4 baby mamas!). As for me, I discovered I'm a true Virgo Sun (no cusp) in the second decanate, with a Taurus Moon, so I'm quite earthy. I also have a Virgo Venus, so the part about a Virgo woman's amorous nature sounded exactly like me. It was interesting to read about my chart pattern - "the basket." I have all my planets in the same few houses (6-9) except Taurus Moon in the 2nd house, which forms my "handle." It's a great resource, I'm sure it'll come in handy when my kid gets older and I'm trying to understand him better. Basically covers all the planets, signs, and houses, although the nodes aren't really touched on. Lots of info about your Sun, Moon & Ascendant, though.

    Accurate. It's pretty psychic. AND THAT MAKES IT AMAZING. I'm a Scorpio, and loved this!

    It has taken an awfully long time of on and off reading, but I've finally made it through. As many other reviewers have pointed out, this is not the only astrology book that you will ever need, but it is a good start.

As many other reviewers have pointed out, this is not the only astrology book that you will ever need, but it is a good start. From my experiences as a very novice astrologer, this book was very helpful on getting a good grip of the signs, houses, and planets. It also has some interesting myths and history in the second half of the book. However, the book does not excel when it comes to putting all of these pieces together. Astrology, as I am quickly learning, is an intuitive art, but Woolfolk's method of reading a chart seems very much plug and chug, using generic statements for the planets in signs and planets in houses, and then asking the reader to cross list them. Very little time is spent on aspects. I also found that her ideas on cusps and the very clear gender binary that she subscribes to is lackluster. Overall, this is very much a beginner's book, just going a little above the books which only cover your sun signs. However, as a reader with an interest in these practices, I was looking for more, and it looks like I'll have to find it elsewhere.
