Review

Mary English write about my sun sign with penetrating clarity tempered with compassion and sympathetic understanding. If you love a Capricorn, read this book. It will help you love him or her more skillfully. You may even see a smile!
Steven Forrest, Author of The Inner Sky

I recommend this book to anyone starting out in astrology and in particular, wanting to learn more about the Capricorn star sign. This is easy and light-hearted reading.  I enjoyed Mary's personal touches to the entire book, through conversations she had with clients and friends. This book serves its intended purpose, that is, to cheer up a Capricorn you know (or it could be for the Capricorn in you!), using practical remedies and suggested actions so, arm yourself with your Capricorn's date and enjoy the empowering knowledge that this book brings!

Having read all about Capricorn in these pages, and coming from a family clustered with them and Saturn a dominant family motif, I so enjoyed Mary English's approach. This book is terrific, it is about people, real people! Stories about individual Capricorn's, their relationships, and the uniqueness each person expresses within the primordial archetype that Kronos/Capricorn demands. There is some black humour to it all, and isn't that the best part about Capricorn? (Erin Sullivan, Author of Saturn in Transit: Boundaries of Mind, Body and Soul. http://www.erinsullivan.com/)

From the Author

Why the title of this book?
After the publication of How to Survive a Pisces, I was asked by my clients if I was going to write about their sign, so I embarked on writing about each sign of the Zodiac. As I'd started
with my own sign, Pisces, the last sign, I thought I'd go backwards
through the Zodiac. Why not?
And as I'd promised myself to go backwards, it then meant I had to write about Capricorn after Aquarius.
This wasn't an easy option.
Even though I have a sister who is Capricorn, a dear Homeopathic friend (whose husband is also Capricorn) and two second cousins, the more I thought about, or read about Capricorns, the more it seemed it would be an uphill struggle. I then had to think of a title, one that would inspire others to learn about this sign, but also to help those that struggle with the sign themselves. I wasn't going to write just about the fun side of the sign; I needed to write about their Achilles heel. The thing that other people think they struggle with, which I found is 'being happy'.
And to make the writing of this book more meaningful, just as I got to the last chapter and was 'tidying-things-up', I suffered an unexpected and humungous computer crash which effectively wiped-away 50% of this book... and turned it into hieroglyphics. No amount of software fixes would recreate 4 months of work and over 12,000 words and I was left with the sorry task of having to rewrite the last 3 chapters. The only people who truly knew how I felt were other authors, of which my older sister Lucy is one, and after spending the weekend weeping and cursing Jupiter and Uranus retrograde, her sympathetic ear and reminder to 'back-up EVERYWHERE' brought me some solace and I carried on... even though I felt very UN-happy.
It was during this sad episode that I realised I had to call upon my own Saturn (which you will learn about soon) which is luckily in Capricorn, so I could: 'grit teeth, nose to the grindstone, no use making a fuss, get on with it', otherwise you wouldn't be reading this book at all. It also gave me some understanding of Capricorn's need to succeed, and get the job done regardless.

Format: Paperback
I read this book in one sitting. (I have ADD and this is unheard of for me.) It was very easy to understand, even though I have some astrology knowledge, it still kept me interested. To confess, I gave up on today's astrology books because they were either too impersonal or too mindnumbingly difficult to follow. Too many of these other astro books are either unresearched or too heavily academic - this one is on pointe! How did that happen?? The write is very conversational and anecdotal, while giving reliable tips you can actually use in life. A practical astrology book? Who would have thought it? Ms. English did. Her book makes it relevant. I wish I had this book growing up as a Cap-rising with two Cappie parents. My teen years would have been a lot smoother. My whole world was Capricornian and if I read this book then, I would have had a much easier time understanding how to deal with Saturn and what it wants from us a lot better. Alas, you lucky people get to have it. :) Overall, I have discovered Mary English and I really look forward to her other books. I wish everyone wrote in this style because astrology IS personal, it needs to be relevant and why study it if you can't use it in your everyday life for positive relationship?? LOVE IT!

If you are a Capricorn, or have a Capricorn in your life, this is a must read! It is so much more than learning the qualities of this sign of the Zodiac - although those are included, of course. The author adds many anecdotes from public figures and her own personal and professional life; these illustrate how these qualities manifest themselves in careers and relationships. She also includes how to map your own astrological chart.

Now it's time to explore her other Zodiac sign books....

The author got it right. If you live or work with or for a Capricorn, you should read this book. As a Capricorn, I know what I'm writing about, and so does the author.

I wasn't sure I would learn much from this book but I did. I will have to get more information on this Cap to determine their astrological position. Great read and recommend to others who may need a quick guide into dealing with a Capricorn.
