Written back when Pluto was in Scorpio,Martha has been examining the astrological meanings of many asteroids and shares her early thoughts. She gives basic keyword explanations, then gives some combination symbolism, so that you can find out what astraa and juno together may mean to you. It is unbelievable how much depth is in each of her books, and you may be surprised by the level she is willing to take you in order to learn this fascinating and revealing area of astrology. This year she has published her long awaited Angles and Prediction which is the grandmother of all delineations of asteroids, planets, and transneptunians. Because of her books, astrology has come alive for me. The layers of meaning are fascinating and fulfilling, and I highly recommend them all.

Although I recognise the scientific absurdity of astrology, it is still about the funniest topic existing, and its descriptions of personalities - even if never accurate - are actually quite useful if one can detach them from planetary positions.

Interested in moving beyond the "nine planets" of late 20th century astrology, I have read a good deal about asteroids in astrology though information is hard to come by. (This has also led me to look more closely at astronomy and the asteroids can be quite interesting there too).

"Mechanics of the Future: Asteroids" has been hailed by many critics as one of the finest books on astrology from the late twentieth century. However, though it looks in detail at many topics relating to asteroids and chart interpretation, it is really rather far-fetched and remote from practical application even for those who seriously believe in astrology (something astrology's limitless humour makes me do even when I know it's scientifically rubbish).

The main fault of "Mechanics of the Future: Asteroids" is quite simply that it focuses on complicated chart patterns made by asteroids - many involving ones very rarely used in astrology and/or not significant astronomically (something I actually do take seriously doing astrology). The reader is thrown into this type of work without any chance of knowing how to cast charts, or about the orbits of the asteroids being used, or about their history - the list is too long.

There is almost no focus on more significant sign or house interpretations, and rather too little on the meaning of individual asteroids so that the reader can gain an idea of what asteroids to use in doing his or her own work.
