Find guidance on your life and love through the stars This practical and sensible introduction to the science behind astrology will help you use the ancient practice to enhance your understanding of your own personality, pathway through life, and future potential. The book introduces the history behind astrology, explaining precisely what it is--and isn't--before helping you construct, interpret, and learn from your own natal, or birth, chart. Rather than offering "predictions" "Take Control with Astrology" guides you toward a full understanding of your relationship with the planets and the conjunctions, and the ways in which these can be used constructively to understand and manipulate the influences of the natural world on your own life. It offers valuable advice on relationship compatibility, along with guidance on career and other lifestyle choices and is accompanied by plenty of useful resources, diagrams and guides to finding out more.
