A solid, no-nonsense introduction to astrology

In 1981 I put together a small 12-page xeroxed booklet titled Some Facts About Astrology which I handed out to people who were clueless about the subject. I don't know for sure how effective it was in changing minds, but I think it did muzzle some skeptics. A few years later I added more information on the nuts and bolts of astrology which brought the little book to 46 pages. I also changed the name to Astrology for Open Minds and printed it myself using my dot-matrix printer. At this point the book covered the history of astrology, what an astrologer does, the symbolism and some practical uses. By the end of the decade I had expanded the book to 100 pages and changed the title again, this time to User's Guide to Astrology, and self-published it in an 8.5 x 11 format with plastic binding. Then, in 1997, I added more information and had it printed as a 5.5 x 8.5 paperback of 144 pages.

During the pandemic quarantine I expanded the book to over 200 pages and then worked with Margaret at The Wessex Astrologer to put out a new edition with a new cover and new title: What Astrology is...and How to Use It. It's now a very complete introduction to astrology; good for someone new to the subject, useful as an textbook on the beginner to intermediate level, and it shows how to do astrology yourself and where to find resources.
