5.0 out of 5 stars Steven Forrest is a master teacher!
Having just discovered Steven Forrest recently I am still a novice to his wisdom on the many topics he covers as an Astrological Master Teacher. The Book of the Moon is yet another innovative and compelling source of information for those of us who seek to know more in the field. His ability to use practical information (look at the sky! what a concept!!) to intuit and...

... but I have mixed feelings right now.

On the one hand, I feel a duty to support Steven in every way I can. His book, The Inner Sky: How to Make Wiser Choices for a More Fulfilling Life, was my first "real" astrology book, and I was among his devoted followers for a long time. Growing up in my astrological understanding, I naturally had to branch out to other authors and resources. But wherever I wandered, I kept Steven close in my heart and kept an eye on his teachings. I am grateful to him.

On the other hand, I feel a duty to students of astrology because they are the FUTURE of astrology - and, IMO, astrology is extremely important to our future. For that reason, I am inclined to publicly express disappointment in this book.

How do I solve this dilemma? With extreme diplomacy...

Read this book for a good introduction to certain lunar phenomena, like the out-of-bounds moon, fast/slow moving moon, and void-of-course moon. Read this book because we like Steven's storytelling. Read this book because we like Steven! Additionally, supplement this book with other authors. I highly recommend Demetra George's book, Finding our Way through the Dark, for this particular topic. I discovered the immensely useful lunation cycle when studying Demetra's work and was floored with its accuracy and usefulness. Although I've bought other books on the subject, including Rudhyar's, Demetra's remains my favorite. I have adopted the lunation cycle - both natally and in progression - as fundamentally important to any delineation. Stephen's book, while fine at other lunar aspects, misses on its descriptions of phases.

I choose not to pinpoint any specific complaints about this book in this review. I will say to buy it - just don't stop there.

Having just discovered Steven Forrest recently I am still a novice to his wisdom on the many topics he covers as an Astrological Master Teacher. The Book of the Moon is yet another innovative and compelling source of information for those of us who seek to know more in the field. His ability to use practical information (look at the sky! what a concept!!) to intuit and discern the depths behind the obvious is exciting and profound. I am thrilled to discover someone who works outside the consensus majority and look forward to absorbing all of his work - over time - as it is so much to digest!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Book On The Moon for Astrology Geeks, November 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Book of the Moon: Discovering Astrology's Lost Dimension (Paperback)
A great book for anyone wanting to dive deeply into the meanings of the moon cycles astrologically within their natal chart and how the moon affects us throughout the month. The first half is a bit dense, technical and heavy. But it's all great info and a solid foundation for understanding how the moon works and affects us. Steven Forrest is poetic and crazy smart as always.

Easy to read but a lot of great information about the moon, both technical and psychologically. Good examples and his thought process of his system of interpretation is explained clearly. Might be a bit advanced for a beginner but one can grow into this book.
