More About the Author

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

I'm a longtime fan of Mr. Arroyo's work and Person-to-Person Astrology to me is his Magnum Opus. I heard he had a new book out from a very perceptive review by Mary Plumb at [...] which really gives an excellent overview. I agree with her assessment that "this is a wise and wonderful book." It's very accessible for non-astrologers and yet it has so much to offer us perennial students of the subject.

I really enjoyed the beginning chapters. He's quite critical of our modern culture and observes how it prevents us from recognizing our authentic selves, and shows how astrology can help us discover our essential nature, and recognize our individual motivations and expectations. He's an amazingly clear writer who's not afraid to tell it how he sees it... and even if you don't agree, it's really thought provoking!

What's different about this book, compared to other astrology books, is its scientific and scholarly approach. This isn't just `theory'. Over 30 years of research and counseling he gathered hundreds of quotes from interviews and questionnaires so you get real people's experiences to illustrate the "energy interaction" between people. He also has found the best quotes from other respected authors' observations and gives full references to their sources. All these quotations combine to give us a clear overview so we can better understand our relationships and how we resonate or clash with each other.... He explores many little-noted aspects of astrological factors and really illuminates their meanings in a strikingly original way. This is a great practical guide for analyzing relationships.

Lets start by saying that any book by Arroyo is better than no book from Arroyo. And that any book from Arroyo is better than about 90% of other astrology books out there. Having said that, this is not one of Arroyo's finset works, in my opinion. It is a book on some of the basics of relationship astrology, and it is directed at an audience of beginners and complete astrology novices. And here lies the snag with this book. Arroyo is such a refined astrologer, that a book of basics written by him, seems like a complete waste. Its like a gourmet chef teaching how to boil an egg. Or an Einstein teaching first graders their times tables. Reading this I was left with a feeling of dissapointment that after so many years of not publishing any new works, there was nothing here for me to sink my teeth into.

The book itself is of course well written and pulsing with Mr Arroyos very warm and insightful personality. But it is basically a book about Moon, Mars and Venus placements by sign (no mention of houses) and their role in relationships and compatibility. The intent here is that of looking at compatibility as energy exchange between individuals as signified by the energies of the elements and signs. Good concept, but he wrote about this much better and in more depth in his book "Relationships and life cycles".

Overall a perfectly good book, but a bit of a dissapointment to this old timer, who was anticipating an Arroyo book with a little more substance to it, maybe a little closer ot his classic Astrology, Karma and Transformation. But then, that would probably be asking too much. As such, glad this man is publishing at all and hoping to soon be hearing about more forthcoming titles from this exceptional author.

Format: Paperback
A review of PERSON-TO-PERSON ASTROLOGY by a professional counselor recently appeared in the Canadian publication The Astrological Guild Book Review. Unlike a couple of previous Amazon reviewers of this book, this woman (who holds a M.Ed. degree) has obviously read this important and stimulating new book carefully and open-mindedly. She notes that "this book was a very engaging read" and that Arroyo's approach "resonates with the energies that we are made up of and can be felt in everyday life." She seems to detect and appreciate many of the same qualities in this book that another reviewer in "Mountain Astrologer" magazine commented on and praised (available online). The Canadian review concludes: "Although Arroyo claims this book is written for interested non-astrologers or those at the novice level, I would recommend it as well for those who are more advanced ...as it is well written, informative and inspires a more visceral, meaningful understanding of our experience."
It is unfortunate that some Amazon reviewers are so self-centered that they can't see the book itself for what it is, and only judge it based on whether it fulfills their "expectations" of flattering comments about their own wonderful birth charts. It is revealing that a couple reviewers who are "disappointed" still give the book 4 stars! And they do not seem to appreciate the scope of research or the variety of new approaches and observations about astrology contained in this fascinating book.
The comments about Arroyo's repetition from his earlier books are misleading, exaggerated, and inaccurate, since I would estimate that at least 95% of this book is entirely new material. He actually further refines the keywords and evocative key phrases developed in his deservedly popular classic works.
