Aztec/Maya astrology is the intellectual equivalent of the Mexican pyramids. In Signs of Time: An Introduction to Mesoamerican Astrology readers will be introduced to all the major astrological themes in the Maya/Aztec astrological tradition. Readers will be offered objective interpretations of the key features of this ancient but very much alive system of symbolic interpretation.
The book doesn't leave the reader with just strange and fascinat- ing accounts of ancient practices; it presents tested methods for the practical use of Mesoamerican astrology. In Signs of Time are discussions of Maya and Aztec myths, including that of the great god Quetzalcoatl. Also, the astronomy, the calendars, the mathematics, and the spirituality of ancient Mexico are part of this exploration into the mind-set of ancient Mesoamerican astrologers. Of interest to many is a sober and objective look at the Mayan Calendar and its end date in 2012.
Horoscope Guide's review said "...there has been basically nowhere you could find out about Mesoamerican astrology - that is, until the publication of Signs of Time." American Astrology said this book is "a literate and interesting work."
