From the Inside Flap

Available in paperback for the very first time, here's everything you need to make your own astrological readings of your most precious relationships

Why do you feel you've known someone for years when you've just met?
Why are you attracted to someone who seems like your complete opposite?
Why do you and your loved one argue the way you argue?
How can you make your relationships last in spite of your differences?

The answers to these questions can be found within your birth chart and that of your loved one. Linda Goodman's Relationship Signs is the first astrology book to provide a totally individual, detailed analysis of how compatible you and your partner really are. Whether you are familiar with astrology or a complete novice, this comprehensive reference shows you step-by-step how to find the keys to harmony and the areas of potential trouble--all you need is each person's birth date and time. Individually tailored to you and your loved one, here is your guide to the relationships that mean the most to you.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

Jane's Venus Sextile Ted's Mars:

One important facet of your relationship is passion, passion, passion! You're blessed with the gift of combining romantic and tender affection with intense sexual desire, causing your physical union to be both profoundly erotic and a trembling experience... a powerful blend of innocence and mystery. If you have any conflicts from other planetary vibrations in your inter charts, they'll usually disappear in the bedroom! Couples who share one of these three aspects between Venus and Mars usually don't wait until marriage to "become one". Is that phrase too old fashioned for the mores of the New Age? Then let me state it in another way by telling you a story I once heard in Scout camp. A girl was in a store choosing a gown to wear for her approaching wedding... her first. She turned to the saleslady and said, "I'm not sure what color my bridal gown should be." "Well, " the saleslady replied, "if you've never been married before, it's traditional to wear white. If you have been married before, you should wear purple." The bride-to-be hesitated for a moment, then asked, "Uh... do you have something in the white with a small touch of lavender?"

Only one minor warning note. If the aspect the two of you share is becoming the conduction, Mars may harbor hidden jealousy, a secret lack of self-esteem and bossy behavior, but Venus can usually soothe it all away.

In the ancient texts, famed astrologer Ptolemy writes that any of these three aspects between Venus and Mars "lead to entire love and affection, which will be so marked as to attract attention and comment."

Ted's Venus Square Jane's Mars:

The sexual chemistry between you is powerful, but unfortunately, that's not the end of the story. Both before and after marriage, the strong stimulation of the passionate nature of both tends to break down restraint barriers, and there could be excessive sexuality in one or both partners, which may lead to indiscretions. Naturally, this can destroy harmony. Jealousy could bring serious friction in your relationship and you're both overly emotional. You'll need plenty of positive aspects from the other planets in your Nativities to dilute this one. A commitment is a commitment... so don't make one unless you intend to keep it. Subdue any latent promiscuity urges if you want love to last. The future of your relationship is yours to protect and nourish... or to destroy. Astrology can't make that decision for you. This vibration is a soul test. As the poet Kahlil Gibran wrote..."think not that you can direct the course of love... for love, if it finds you worthy, will direct your course."

Ted's Sun Square Jane's Moon:

There could be quite a few "lovers quarrels" and pretty much bickering between you. If this occurs too often, it could rather quickly lead to a break-up... and the chances are it will be permanent. Therefore, you are both advised to retreat...go on a brief vacation or stay with friends for a few days (separately) until the planetary transits causing the problems pass over and stop triggering irritations between you. Best to avoid these annoyances if you want to remain together forever. Another way is to take a silence vow when either of you is tempted to say something you'll surely be sorry for later when you've cooled off.

Ted's Sun Square Jane's Mars:

When it comes to love and marriage, the two of you may frequently lock horns, and mutual hostility can become emotionally explosive. Anger is too easily aroused, and you seem to put each other on the defensive too often, which naturally causes frequent arguments, with each trying to prove that he or she is right, and the other one is wrong. A marriage between you will endure only if you share several strongly positive aspects between other planets in your Nativities... and if you exercise lots of patience and tolerance. One of you will simply have to give in to the other in your quarrels, since compromise won't work. At least try to be fair and allow each of you to take turns giving in.

I'm a huge fan of Linda Goodman's work, so when I saw this book I grabbed it immediately. I thought it was a bit strange, since I know of her untimely death and the fact that she's already written a fantastic book on relationships and the zodiac (ie: Love Signs)... But I thought oh well, whatever, she must have something more to add.
NO. This book is completely devoid of Linda's trademark unusually witty, disarming turn of phrase and her thoughtful, precise insights and interpretations. Not only that, but WORST OF ALL, when I used this book to work out my ascendant, it was totally WRONG! My rising sign is definitely Libra, NOT Virgo! I tried it on a few other people who's ascendants I knew well, and it was wrong for a few of them also. A lot of the interpretations were also very narrow, lacking in depth or any real insight and thus were hard to ascribe to certain individuals because of that.
Linda's money hungry publishing company or whoever is behind putting this book out is doing her name and memory an enormous disservice. Save your money and make sure you buy Linda's other books like Star Signs, Sun Signs & Love Signs. They are all brilliant.

There's one section in the book that resembles Linda Goodman's inimitable style - the rest looks like an attempt to cash in on her name. Was Linda too trusting? We may never know. Avoid this book and reach for her Stars, Love or Sun Signs tomes instead.

I have never believed in censorship, but this book really ought to be withdrawn from the market.
On what grounds?
Insult to the author's memory.
The only thing that's Linda Goodman in this insipid pseudo-tribute is the name on the cover... and I am willing to bet with my life that it didn't get on that cover with the owner's permission.

I picked up a copy of this book today and was delighted to see something by Linda Goodman. I was with a friend and I said "isn't she dead?" I read a few pages and saw that this was supposedly some of Linda's work that had been given to someone else. That was fine. I have always loved to read Linda. She has this sick fascination thing with Librans (nature's sense of humour) and I enjoyed her wit and levity. I found none of it in this book. It is my opinion that if you are buying this book to enjoy Linda then you are not going to be happy. It's a mediocre Astrology book in a sea of new age material. Had I known then what I know now I would not have bought the book.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I bought this book a few years ago when I was seeing a particular Taurus, and I wanted to find out our compatibility. At the time, I was not as well versed in Astrology as I am now, but I did have both of our charts printed from an online source, and I just matched up the details and looked them up in this book.

I found some things to be accurate which I would never have wished to be so! But the book "told it like it was" and I soon found that some of the Saturn aspects could not be avoided, and I was quite shocked to discover that Linda was totally right about a Moon-Uranus transit which spelled disaster! She talks about how a Moon square Uranus will cause breakups and separations galore and that you've got to have some heavy aspects to counter-act this one. Even to this day, that particular excerpt stands out in my mind because it proved to be so true.

I will say that it can be a little difficult to navigate through this book because you are constantly flipping back and forth. Linda also has a section in the front of the book called "Love Aspects" which are also covered later in the book, so you'll end up reading those twice (though the information is slightly different for the same aspect). A little bit of patience and discernment is required. I only wish that there was something in the book to indicate the weight of a given aspect. You'll get a wide range of interpretations which could contradict one another because there are so many potential aspects in a synastry analysis.

If you are determined and you have your chart done before-hand, you can get benefit out of this book. I would still get a professional synastry interpretation done so that you can get a better sense of what issues are likely to effect you the most because some aspects will only come into play during extreme circumstances and aren't likely to be present in your day to day experience.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Relationship signs is a good book if you want to examine relationships between 2 people on an astrological basis. It is fairly simple although I think that it could have been made even simpler. Some of the concepts have been explained rather hazily such as when you look at 2 charts , do you need to compare the planets based on their position in each chart or is it on the basis of zodiac signs? The answer is on the basis of zodiac signs, of course. Therefore, you see there s a trine between A's Sun (Aries) and B's sun(Aquarius). You don't look at A's 4th house and B's 7th! The problem with this book is two fold:
1. You don't really need to draw a chart for each person when all you are doing is seeing the relationship between their respective planets and signs. Therefore this can be achieved by listing out each person's planets and signs. You don't need the two charts, they just confuse you! The way that this book explains planets and signs is slightly confusing. Therefore you do need to know a little about astrology before you start. This is not a Grant Lewi style book... you can't start work on this unless you have read a little (at least) about astrology
2. I must say that for a Goodman fan, this book is a little disappointing. The book lacks the full force of her witty, clever and incredibly simple style. Especially the explanation of signs and planets... it is made rather complicated, very un Linda like. Which leads me to believe (like many who have read this book) that it wasn't fully a product of Linda Goodman. It s probably a product of some kind of LG Co.
