Updated on June 18, 2014

Linda Goodman Astrologer and Poet

Who does not want to know that future? Who does not want to learn something from our past? Who does not want to glean better understanding of who we are in this world? Yes you want to know and so do I. So much is told to us from the stars, the sun and the moon. Thank you Linda Goodman for all you shared about who we are within these gifts.

Linda Goodman,

April 9, 1925 - October 21, 1995

New York Times bestselling American author, astrologer and poet.

A poem,

"I Love..."

By Linda Goodman and Nancy Williams

I love to see the smile on your face.
I love to see the laughter in your eyes.
But when there's pain and hurt in there
I more than sympathize.
I love to hold you gently
and touch you all night long.
I love to wake in the morning
secure within your arms.
I turn and touch your face.
Your lips are soft and warm.
Our bodies lie close together
and then we become one.
You whisper love so softly
and deeply in my ear,
and I know in my heart
that there is no fear...

Speaking of Moons and Stars: A Goddess of the Moon Defied the Stars

by Kathy Ostman-Magnusen

Speaking of moons and stars...

She captured hope from his eyes

goddess of the moon

defying stars en route

dreams that might come true

this damsel demanded his last



It was not kind

a siren that stole his soul

his being



and yet

she did

what she had lusted for.

Left behind along a sandy shoreline

holding only

tokens of a memory

a princess of the land

held scraps of paper

in her wanting hands.

Later to pasted in a notebook

a boatman's remnants

one day

most carelessly

to be tossed

most irreverently


Down the line of life

a stranger who would not discern

such a delicate story

a diary had procured.

Lost love

and memories

that faded

long before

within a beauties

pitiful song and lore.

Such a seaman was he

brave to meet the storms

traveling in a long boat

cross the waves of majesty.

He called upon a mermaids legend

to find a most perfect pearl

for his lovely land beauty


upon his return

would marry her.


that mariner unprotected

did not realize a mermaid

could be vengeful.

And thus

upon seeing such a handsome mariner

that water maiden

fell in love with the maidens hero.

Siren of the the sea


planned to take him captive

to meet another

seaweed laced



He could only hope for magical visions

in the depth of the ocean

where a gem from the waters

might be

for his princess in waiting

at home in a castle

so soft and lovely.

Refrains from protection

twas a heroes way

never realizing jealous hearts

power unknown

can take

a sailors breath


Poor pitiful sea farer

all he could do

was lie down naked

hoping the moonlight would have pity

on yesterdays




on his mind

but ohhh

so sadly

not in time.

Don't let your dreams fade

lover of mine

called out the princess

from a grassy hillside

toward the whales

and the waves

the unknown and beyond

uselessly defied

fore deep in her heart

past gates of promise

she knew

her lover

did die.

Down into the deep

pulled by a sea vixen

who had decided to take care

of her own ambitions.

Brave seafarer was he

remembered by a princess

who reluctantly met

an most unwanted

Sweet Surrender Lyrics by Tim Buckley

Now you wanna know the reason

Why I cheated on you?

Well I had to be a hunter again.

This little man had to try

To make love feel new again.

'Cause there's just a few things, honey

I'm not old enough to do for you. Ohh.

And they're the things, momma

You just never care to show me. Ohh.

So this flim-flam lover boy

Found him a flamingo.

And his flamingo

Showed him how to tango.

And when they tangoed

It'd send their heart's a ‘flutter.

Teased him 'till he'd stutter.

Made him so young and tender.

Sweet to surrender

And so sweet surrender.

In sweet surrender.

Ahh, sweet surrender to love.

But now you're gonna go out

And get yourself

A reputation.

But I'm gonna have to show you

Where to start.

And then you're gonna bring back

Your little reputation

And prove to me

What I could not prove to you.

'Cause I was just too young at heart.

I'm just too cold, honey.

Just too hard to care.

Just too hard, 'right

To surrender.

Surrender to love.

Sweet surrender

Surrender to love.

If we could

Just surrender

Love would heal the mess we've made.

So give it up, momma, ahh.

It 'aint gonna be no good

It keeps goin' 'round and 'round.

You hurt me.

Then I hurt you again.

All that's left to do, ah.

Is give it up, Ahhhhhh,

No, no, give it up

And surrender, Ahhhhhh, momma.

Sweet surrender.

Sweet surrender.

Surrender your love.

Surrender love.

Ohhhhhh, Surrender momma.

Ohhhhhh, Surrender that love.


Sweet, sweet, sweet su-rre-rren-der, momma.

In to love.

To love.

To love.

      Linda has been my persnoal guide since I was 14. It was then I met a lady from California who introduced me to Linda's books to help me understand Astrology. I wish Linda were alive today so I can tell her how much her books have helped me understand the differences between us!!

      The first astrology book that came into my hands was that by Linda Goodman. It was given to me by someone I employed at the time and who could read palms and was quite accurate. Love the book and still refer to it often and this lady knew what she was talking about. Glad you wrote this lens about her and so well presented. Blessed and featured on Blessed by Skiesgreen 2012 and also on Blue Moon. Hugs

      I read two of Linda Goodman's astrology books many years ago and found them to be the most detailed and accurate of any I've read before or since. Definitely a great way to learn more about how the signs affect behavior.

      Wow, thank you for this lens. I was given the book Linda Goodman's Sun Signs 35 years ago and for many years it was my bible.

I have read it over and over so thank you for the reawkening, I will now go and read it again!

      I adored Linda Goodman. I have every one of her books, I loved her style, her knowledge of astrology, and far beyond her knowledge, her understanding. She not only knew astrology, she understood its ramifications thoroughly. That's why I love her "Love Signs" she doesn't say one sign can't be happy with another, she simply points out what challenges they will have, and what they'll love about each other without ever saying "Forget it--this won't work". Fabulous lens! And beautiful art, too!

      I have loved (and agreed) with Linda Goodman's outlook on the star signs since she was first published in 1968, and Cripple Creek as changed so much since those days. Her absence is sorely missed.

      Another very in tuned lens, seesta!
