More About the Author
STEPHEN ARROYO's eight books have made him one of the best-selling authors of modern astrology books worldwide. Among his works are Astrology, Psychology & the Four Elements; Astrology, Karma & Transformation; Relationships and Life Cycles; Stephen Arroyo's Chart Interpretation Handbook, & Exploring Jupiter. His writings have elicited such tremendously enthusiastic response internationally that they have now been translated into 20 languages, and he has been awarded the British Astrological Association Astrology Prize, the Fraternity of Canadian Astrologers' International Sun Award, and United Astrology Congress's Regulus Award.
Arroyo's work spans the spectrum of modern, psychologically oriented astrology, supported by his many years of one-to-one counseling work (he holds a California Marriage, Family & Child Counseling license), and body- and energy-centered therapies such as Polarity Therapy. With a background in mathematics and the arts (an honors degree in literature from University of California), and a master's degree in psychology, Stephen Arroyo has developed a system in which the individual's experience is foremost, disregarding the fatalism and negativity of old-fashioned astrology. His writings are renowned for the reliable methods he has distilled for understanding astrological principles in relation to the human energy field, in a way that people of all cultures and backgrounds can easily relate to. As Library Journal stated, his work is particularly notable for his unique ability to express complex concepts in clear, simple language that the reader can identify with and apply in his or her own life.
In addition to numerous appearances in the USA, Arroyo has been a guest speaker or seminar leader in the UK, Spain, France, Italy, Mexico, and Switzerland. He has taught some of the first college courses on astrology in the USA, at four different schools.
Here is a sample of the reviews of Arroyo's latest book, PERSON-TO-PERSON ASTROLOGY:
"...A wise and wonderful book."--The Mountain Astrologer
"...one of the most comprehensive, explicit guides to the psychology of relationships.... Anyone interested in the astrology of relationships would be well advised to get this book before anything else."--Horoscope Magazine
"...shows how astrological knowledge can be a useful tool for those seeking more authentic ways of being....lucid and inspirational."--UK British Astrological Assn Journal

In the second part, Mr.Read more ›
The second part deals thoroughly with the four elements, a knowledge that to my opinion, is a must to understand astrology and for developing a clear, systematic vision of more advance interpretation. It makes so different when one's interpretations are based upon the elements, as the signs and the planetary aspects become more understandable and less consider as "doctrine" knowledge. A must to begin with!
astrological symbolism and boils them down to basics. His
writing style is clear and uncluttered with jargon. This is
not a "cookbook" to be referred to again and again for
the author's interpretation. This book teaches the
fundamental priciples of signs, planets, houses, and aspects
from which the student can proceed to make her own
interpretations. A real gem.
