Decoding the Stars. A Modern Astrology Guide to Discover Your Life’s Purpose

Author: Scott, Allison


Astrologer Scott does a stellar job of explaining astrology in her debut. After establishing the basic tenets of astrology, including how to compose and read one’s birth chart, Scott explains sun signs, which outline people’s essential natures; rising signs, which provide insight into personal motivation; and moon signs, which reveal particulars of one’s emotional state. Scott digs deeper into the 12 astrological houses, laying out how to interpret the significance of house placements in a birth chart, and how to integrate the various signs. Birth charts for the likes of Emily Brontë and Ursula K. Le Guin serve as teaching tools, and sections are punctuated by questions for personal reflection (“Considering your Moon sign, what kinds of daily rituals and habits best support your mental and physical well-being?”). Scott thoughtfully explores astrology as a useful system that can help the curious deepen their self-knowledge, while still being honest about its limitations. Amateur astrologers will find plenty to appreciate in this first-rate guide to deciphering the stars.  — ​Publishers Weekly
