5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Piece Of Work., December 18, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I really enjoy reading all of Marc Boney's works and "Tattoos And Tombraiders" is no exception. As the book downloaded to my Kindle I anticipated a detailed and easy to follow guide to recognising the planetary yogas that brought fame, celebrity and wealth to Angelina Jolie. Of course, I wasn't at all disappointed. Mr Boney has a deep and clear understanding of the way the planetary yogas manifest and he shares his wisdom with the reader the way a brother shares with a brother ( or sister, come to that ).
To any serious student of Jyotish I would recommend this offering very highly. There is much light between its pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Ground-breaking new work on the Sabian Symbols, January 28, 2005
This review is from: 360 Degrees of Wisdom (Paperback)
I was really looking forward to this book and I wasn't disappointed. Lynda has obviously worked very hard to illuminate our understanding of how the meanings of the Sabian Symbols can be applied to any branch of astrology, and her comments on each degree-symbol are well thought-out, comprehensive and very informative.

The cards themselves are easily detachable at the back of the book and make a great conversation-opener when placed strategically on the coffee-table!

The book opens with a brief history of the Sabian Symbols; how they were brought forward into the world via the clairvoyance of Elsie Wheeler and the astrological foresight of Marc Edmund Jones. It continues with advice on how to use the symbols in a birthchart, and this advice is straightforward and easy to follow.

The bulk of the book is devoted to a comprehensive interpretation of each degree symbol using the format "Commentary", "Oracle", "Keywords" and "Caution", and what I particularly appreciate is the way Lynda says at the bottom of each page "What does this symbol say to you?". This leaves room for your own mind to work on the symbolism, so you're not left feeling as though you are being brainwashed with someone else's ideas.

Finally, Lynda includes on each page a selection of quotations - some profound, some wise, some downright hilarious - that illustrate the core-meanings of each symbol and help you to "get" the heart of the message.

Not only is this an excellent book, and one I would recommend to any serious student of astrology, but the oracle cards really do work, sometimes in a very literal fashion! I have used them several times and they have always amazed me...

Well done, Lynda Hill! This is obviously a labour of love.
