But to some astrologers, asteroids can have as much impact on our emotional lives as if one had slammed right into our house.

Karmic updates via. Contributing Astrology writer. Featured Headlines. Sun in Libra Horoscopes. Asteroids and Astrology. Kay To scientists, asteroids are just a class of small celestial bodies that fall into orbit around the Sun. Aries would rather be caught dead than be caught weak-and some of them literally risk the former to avoid the latter.
The ram will seldom glance nervously around the room. Something else has caught his attention, and for the moment, you are forgotten. Remember the baby and his toes and fingers. He will undoubtedly be at the head of his chosen career or involved in a profession on his own. You can look for a liberal attitude, lavish generosity with both time and material things, and a marked desire to lead all the marches -with loud cymbals. The average Arien was behind the barn door when those qualities were passed out.
Aries is very direct, to put it mildly. Deceptiveness and deviousness are entirely foreign to the Mars nature. Some of them lack stability and evidence a child-like lack of responsibility.

Even those who have matured can forget debts in the excitement of the ever-present new challenge of the moment, which will always consume their entire attention. The dentist is not one of his favorite people. Every Arien, at some time in his life, will indulge in rash behavior that brings an injury to the head or face. Cuts and bums are also likely, and severe or even migraine headaches, which could stem from kidney infections.
Even so, it may require handcuffs to keep him down. He can survive fevers high enough to kill the average person, and many of them are brought on by his headstrong Mars tendency to carry through under [adverse circumstances, at the wrong times with the wrong people]. The angry impatience and frustration is the real cause of his health problems. His reaction to delay makes him ill, and the conscious cultivation of patience and cautious deliberation would keep the doctor away. Because of his forceful optimism, Aries along with the other fire signs, Leo and Sagittarius seldom falls victim to the chronic, lingering diseases-which astrology has always taught and medical science now realizes are triggered or intensified by melancholy and pessimism.
The fire signs are more susceptible to raging fevers, fulminating infections, strokes, high blood pressure and violently acute illness. Say what you will about his impulsiveness, the ram is seldom guilty of gloom. The seeds of depression, even if planted, will die a quick death in Arien soil. But that precious idea Aries holds, that no one else can do anything as efficiently as he can, may run away with him and lead to a thousand disasters. No one ever accuses him of laziness. Because of their guileless nature, subtle tricks of strategy are impossible for these people. One Aries I know well, with his fiery, contagious enthusiasm, got a financial angel to back one of his original ideas.
Just as the deal was about to be closed, and this ram was about to realize his fondest dreams, the angel logically suggested that a well-known expert oversee the operation. The Aries was positive that no one could run it as well as himself, and he was fearful of getting involved with someone from whom he might have to take orders, so he responded quickly, with the usual Aries humility. For many frustrating months, those who had formerly been behind him one hundred percent were mysteriously out to lunch or in Europe every time he called.
A little tactful diplomacy could have kept his dream from exploding, but it takes the average ram many years to reach the diplomacy of an Arien like Dean Rusk. People who have arrived at the top through hard and patient work justifiably resent an aggressive Aries, who thinks he knows far more with far less experience.
He learns modesty and humility only after many dismal failures. He reaches leadership only by first respecting those above him in credit and stature, yet success, when it comes, is normally gigantic and impressive. Strangely, most Aries people often create wealth for others rather than for themselves. Lots of rams pay rent most of their lives, and seldom own their own home. The ram has a way of making instant decisions without the authority of his superiors. His speech can be satirical and cutting in invective.
Yet this same Aries was truly heartbroken when he missed enjoying the magic wonder of Disneyland. Mars people are often accused of having a terrible temper. They have. But they also have a complete inability to remain angry, and once over with, the grievance is generally buried and forgotten.
Given the chance, Aries will apologize to his worst enemy, regardless of any dire threats he made in the throes of emotion. He seeks acceptance, even while he heedlessly and deliberately courts rejection. Aries people seldom become angry with individuals. And after six months approximately, I remembered that I read something about Leo and Pisces relationship being exactly the way it is described in that book. Now, what's that book? I didn't struggle much to remember it.
And I didn't go to the shop straight away. Don't I have better things to do? Ok, after a few days, I made time for it and went to the shop. I took the book and read the same three paragraphs again. I found the Sun signs book leaning beside it. Well, I just took the Sun signs book I know it came earlier, and that it is more basic than the Love signs , and bought it. Got back to my home, and read the chapter - Aries man there's an Aries man in my family.
He almost always commands me around. Really frustrated with his always noisy dominating presence. But this book made me understand him try to get on well with him , and I found the traits absolutely correct. And also I found the narration witty. And the things very true. And since then I was following her with absolute devotion. I am a big fan of Linda Goodman. And I consider her a Genius. Apr 28, Anie rated it really liked it.
This book describes a lot regarding various sun signs in a very interesting way even if you do not want to believe it sometimes. It becomes very interesting when a person reads it and matches his or her qualities. It also defines the nature and characteristics of water, air and earth signs. As it was written a lot of years ago, things have changed greatly. It is based on people belief on astrology.

Some of the points that I found interesting were like : -a Capricorn child is very serious in his childhood and when his age grows, he becomes more childish. There is much more in it and most descriptions are surprisingly correct. There may be exceptions and different opinions but when I read and compared with the people, I found many of these qualities matching correctly.
May 25, Rummy rated it it was amazing. Don't believe in Sun Signs? This book's for you! This book is fantastic! My book is dog eared and falling apart - I've read it that many times. Its one of those astrology books that don't need you to fit yourself into the said characteristics. Sometimes we just don't get someone's behavior or their nature - this book clearly helps in that. Understanding that people are different and great in different ways. Linda Goodman's writing style is easy to read and holds your interest. When Don't believe in Sun Signs?
When you see the pages, full of long paragraphs, its easy to close the book because it looks boring. Indeed the opposite. Start reading and you'll know why this book has been sought after so many years. The book concludes with the fact that the stars only influence, not control your life. You can be who you want to be.

I was interested in this book I must admit. While I do not have any deep belief in Astrology, it was fun reading about the different personalities of the various signs. But here is my main issue and I am sure it will not be a surprise: I do not really fit my sign nor do most people I know fit their sign. So it is not a book I could take all that seriously. I know many people are deep believers in Astrology and that's fine. But I'd have enjoyed the book more if I could find myself in my sign or the I was interested in this book I must admit.
But I'd have enjoyed the book more if I could find myself in my sign or the people close to me in their signs. I am a Virgo. The only two things I have in common with my sign are: we read yes! Otherwise not much.
But it IS fun. If you do not take it to seriously you can have a fun time trying to guess the signs of people you know based on their personalities. For a person like me who likes reading about the mind, that is a good thing. While I have always liked Goodman's style, her books are rather dated keeping in mind that they were written decades ago and continually republished : a good writing style and an assumption that astrology as a determinant of personality does not age, but the interpretation does as they are often through a cultural filter.
Now it is expected that both spouses work, women can handle things independently, etc. Remember that. However, you will occasionally see the colour of dated perceptions. My favorite part s of this book? Ayue carumba!! May 31, Aoi rated it really liked it Shelves: non-fiction. The book that started it all! An extremely fun and enjoyable recounting of the sun signs and their quirks. She has a great flair for narration, and when copied by astrologers today, comes across as stiff and unnatural.

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.

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 living Venn diagram of demographics for these books would look like this: She's a white, American woman.

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. 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.

I have always been Taking astrology with a pinch of salt, since logic states it has to be generic, amd vague so it would suit most people. But still vague enough to be able to adress a larger amount of people.
I tested reading every sunsign and i must admit, not a single one of the others came even close. Thats a conclusion I made in life as well.
