Astrology is rich with stories and symbols: the gods of love and war, of time and the sea, the wing-footed messenger, the sturdy goat and the scales of justice...An astrologer knows that a birth chart is a complex and subtle fusion of planets and signs, but this wonderful tapestry can never be adequately conveyed in the astrology columns in newspapers and magazines.
This book, a unique marrying together of mythical storytelling and the astrological signs, contains twelve enchanting new tales - each tale exploring the many different characteristics waiting to be recognised within each sign.
The land they're set in is Nowhere in Particular; the time is somewhere between Then and Now; the characters and creatures that inhabit the pages all reflect something of the zodiacal signs they represent. And because every one of us is capable of achieving wonders and being disagreeable in the very same breath, you won't find light here without shadow, gain without loss, or being far away without a journey home. Because every birth chart is a combination of signs, there's likely to be more than one story here that touches you. And you might just get a little more insight into your friends and family, not to mention people you're finding it hard to get along with!
A beautiful and entrancing book which will make an ideal gift.
It is suitable for all readers, young and old, whether astrological by nature or not - the stories cannot fail to delight and entertain.
