The Best Books On Astrology To Learn From
Astrology is a wonderful craft, hobby and passion that I greatly enjoy, and learning from the best books on astrology can really pay off.
I have on my shelves at home at least 50 books about astrology. This was actually my introduction to the spiritual, paranormal, supernatural, esoteric, occult, divination, self-help, you name it (yeah, astrology has been called to be any of it - and in a way, it's all true).
Through these books I've learned to do my own chart and to interpret it as well. It took me some time but after a while I've realized that astrology is one of the best tools for learning about self there is.
You learn about the purpose of your life here on Earth, you learn about what you're here to do, which way is best to go in order to leave the impression and do the most good you can.
So enjoy your stay and have fun with learning astrology from the best books there are on the subject!
The Only Astrology Book You'll Ever Need - Joanna Martine Woolfolk
This is quite a good book on astrology. Of course, you will need more than this one alone to really learn the craft, however it's a good start.
A great overview of learning about the sun and moon signs, the planets and all the 12 houses in the zodiac. I also like the additions of the new astronomical discoveris in the 21st century projections.
It's a very easy book to understand and learn from and what I found was that I could already learn to interpret my own natal chart only based on this book alone.
You can find it in paperback, hardcover and also in Kindle edition for quick downloading.
My Fascination With Astrology Through Books I Own And Have Read
I was about 30 years old when I first started to get interested in spirituality in general. Astrology was my entrance into this new wonderful world.
It all started with my brother sending me a document about someone reading his chart. He was curious and got an astrologer to make his horoscope chart and interpret it for him. He found it funny and send it to me to read it.
When I read that Word document sent to me, I didn't find it funny at all, but since I know my brother quite well, I realized that there are lots of truths in that reading, many, many things matching with my brother's character - I guess me being from 'outside', I could see my bro in a different light than he could see himself.
So I started to read about astrology, natal chart, horoscope, and soon I got really hooked. I bought book after book (I have currently over 50 astrology books scattered in my home (the books shown above are just some that I found in my office in a few minutes without any deeper search) and learned to create my own natal chart, and learned how to interpret it.
And since then I was hooked. But not only hooked - I learned to see another world, one that is not easily seen, felt, touched or otherwise understood.
While currently I'm not involved in astrology (spiritually speaking, right now I'm interested in tarot and past lives most of all), I still have all the books I've read years ago, and I pretty much know which ones are really the best to learn astrology from and which are a big flop.
I hope you will find the books below interesting and it will spark in you something that also sparked in me, a thirst, a need to know more of what's out there, a need to learn more about myself and the world around me.
Astrology for Yourself: How to Understand And Interpret Your Own Birth Chart by Demetra George
It's a great beginner book, so it's perfect for anyone just starting out with astrology who wants to learn how to make their natal chart and interpret it.
One of the reasons I like this book so much is because it is in the form of a workbook, so it's really easy to follow along as learning about the chart. Overall a great resource, which in conjunction with a few others can make any beginner into an excellent hobbyist astrologer.
Faithful horoscope-watching, practiced daily, provides just the sort of small but warm and infinitely reassuring fillip that gets matters off to a spirited start.— Alexander, Shana on astrology
The Complete Book of Astrology - Ada Aubin
A perfect book for anyone new to astrology. It was actually one of the first books I bought on the topic several years back.
It is a very easy to understand book to learn from how to read your own natal chart. It talks about the sun sign, the planets, houses, the ascendant, the transits and even introduced some more advanced concepts that can be easily digested once the basics from the book have been learned.
It includes several worksheets and some resources that are useful to check out, along with a cool planet finder. I love it because it makes it so easy to find the planeraty positions. A really great book for anyone who wants to learn more about themselves, about the world around us and about learning the basics of astrology.
Are you interested in learning astrology from books?
Astrology, Psychology, and the Four Elements - Stephen Arroyo
Stephen Arroyo is practically a guru in the circles of serious astrologists. I own every single one of his books (two of which are long out of print) and they are great.
These books were the first to teach me astrology the right way, and to see it in the right light. If you are a student of astrology you can't miss any of Arroyo's books, they are that good!
He is probably the best teacher you'll have without actually sitting in front of you in class.
Llewellyn's Complete Book of Astrology: The Easy Way to Learn Astrology - Kris Brandt Riske
I love most of the books in the Llewellyn publications, and this one doesn't disappoint. It's a very easy to read book and to follow along. If you're just starting now your journey into astrology, consider this book as one of your first to own.
It is a very friendly style written book in the form of a guidebook. Perfect to introduce anyone to astrology in very clear step by step instructions guiding us along when learning about money, relationship and career.
The author goes into the meanings of the planets, the houses, aspects, the signs and how to overall interpret them in the natal chart. I love it for the many photos and illustrations that make learning so easy. Oh and what else I love - the author gives examples of natal chart for famous people, including Tiger Woods, Ophrah, Al Gore and a few others (and yes, Brad Pitt too).
I don't believe in astrology; I'm a Sagittarius and we're skeptical.— ~Arthur C. Clarke
Symbols of the Soul: Discovering Your Life Purpose and Karma Through Astrology - Gina Lake
This is a rather new book on astrology published in 2011. I had my eyes on it way before it was published and I couldn't wait to get it. And the book didn't disappoint. It's very indepth and discusses quite a lot of topics on astrology such as:
* The Moon's nodes, which describe your life purpose and the roadblocks to your destiny
* Saturn's influence in the houses and signs, which describes your fears, weaknesses, and past-life issues
* The twelfth house and its connection to past-life experiences and karmic debts
* How the signs evolve over our many lifetimes and why we choose to be born with certain signs in our chart
* The Moon, which describe your early environment and possible psychological challenges
* A step-by-step approach to finding chart themes and synthesizing the information in the chart.
This is not a book for a complete newbie to astrology, however, so be aware of that. But if you are serious in learning astrology, you WILL find joy and great information when reading it.
We need not feel ashamed of flirting with the zodiac. The zodiac is well worth flirting with.— Lawrence, D. H. on astrology
Astrology of the Moon: An Illuminating Journey Through the Signs and Houses - Amy Herring
I think there is not a better book out there that teaches you about the houses in astrology and especially about the moon. Most astrology books focus on the sun aspects only, brushing the moon aside. Whereas the moon is just as important as in real life.
Basically the moon signs are symbols of our emotional nature and they can show the way of how to become more spiritual. This book is really about exploring emotions, our emotional needs, and it teaches us how to create a positive change in our life, to become more spiritual overall.

All Around the Zodiac: Exploring Astrology's Twelve Signs - Bil Tierney
Another great addition to any lover of astrology's bookshelf. The book gives another view on astrology, all the signs and how we are motivated by them. It shows various ways in which different signs interact with each other.
Aries with Pisces? Gemini with Scorpio? I love the different style of book where we can learn about our sign engaging in communication and relationships with people of other zodiac signs.
