A good reference for traditional astrologers,

This review is from: The Book of Rulerships: Keywords from Classical Astrology (Paperback)
I don't normally write reviews, but I thought the prior review was unfair, and I now have a copy of the book, so I decided to write my own review.
The book is a handy cross-reference of rulerships as given by traditional astrologers. It is not an all-inclusive list of rulerships and does not claim to be. If something wasn't mentioned by the astrologers listed in the introduction, it won't be in the book. The upside of that is that if you find a rulership in the book, you also know where it came from and can refer to the source if you want more details. The downside is that if you're looking to see what planet rules computers, you'll either have to consult a modern book or figure it out for yourself.
The other thing you need to know is that the book is geared toward traditional astrologers and people who want to learn about traditional astrology. As such, some of the rulerships will not be what you expect if you learned astrology from a modern source. Also, the outer planets, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, are intentionally left out. So if you're a traditional astrologer or want to learn about traditional astrology, this book would be a good choice. Otherwise, go with the Bills book like the other reviewer said.
