About the Author

Ariel Guttman has been involved with the study of astrology since 1974.  In 1980 she founded an astrological consulting firm, Astro Originals, through which astrological seminars, personal and business consulting, astrological teaching and lecturing are conducted.  For several years she has been involved with asteroid research, and by including those asteroids in her astrological work, has found a growing interest in this, "the feminine" aspects of astrology.  She has lectured for numerous astrological organizations and conferences both in the United States and in Europe.

Kenneth Johnson holds a degree in Religious Studies from California State University Fullerton. His emphasis was in the study of mythology and this interest is reflected in his writing and his astrological practice. Kenneth discovered astrology while traveling in Europe during the summer of 1973. He studied in Amsterdam and London before returning to the United States and developing a practice which focuses on archetypal themes and personal mythologies. In addition to his astrological interests, Kenneth is also a musical theater librettist and a member of the Dramatists Guild.

Format: Paperback
This book is a perfect antidote to overly simplistic, "cookie-cutter", astrology books. This is because it delves into the deep mythological symbolism behind the planets and signs. It is an excellent reference for fleshing-out a written horoscope with more than the basics. This isn't a book that is going to teach you how to cast a horoscope, however, it will help you to interpret a horoscope in terms of the deep archetypical patterns and currents for which the stars and planets are merely visible markers.
Indeed, this book goes beyond providing mere historical details and trivia, it is a starting place for deep meditation on the underlieing meaning in a chart.

Format: Paperback
This wonderful book marries mythology with astrology in a clear concise readable tapestry. I've had my copy for 2 yrs now and I still refer to it and learn from it. It manages to explain both mythology and astrology in one effortless read. I'm constantly recommending it and lending it out to others who usually end up searching out their own copies. It's a must for anyone who enjoys reading their daily horoscope. You'll learn more about yourself and others than you thought possible, and along the way you'll learn about the ancient myths and astrology. Buy it and enjoy

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book that ties in syncretically, astrology, the planets, the Gods and Goddesses for whom the planets are named and many of the myths relating to them and indiviual signs. In short, it is one of the few concise, deep accounts of archetypal astrology that I have read. The authors also pull a lot from depth psychology and the work of Carl Jung. It is an absolute MUST for any serious student of Astrology! You don't have to go out and buy a big book on Hellenic Mythology, just keep this and within it is all you need to know!

If you have any experience or knowledge with mythology, the perfect starting place for astrology is this book.
Though it is OOP you may find a used copy running around, and I would advise grabbing it up.
The authors explain the mythological parallels of each sign and planet and off a unique manner for interpretting astrological placements based upon each sign.
Astrology didn't begin with mythology but the names given to planetary bodies did. And their relevancy to modern astrology is key in education.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a great reference for the Gods and Goddesses of the ages. It will take you not only on a mythological journey, but also a journey of self discovery. As some books on mythology can be heavy and exhausting to read, this book breathes some fresh air and gives instant clarity about understanding gods and goddesses. Those who have done some inner work themselves will feel like they know these astrological archetypes quiet well. I love the way there is reference to some tarot symbolism as well. This book is a must for a beginner studing astrology!
