Book Description

August 8, 2007

Celestial promises. Earthly fulfillment. Cosmic Karma: Understanding Your Contract with the Universe is more than just a BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO KARMIC ASTROLOGY, it’s an astrological self-help book for the soul. By teaching you to study your birth chart in the same way ancient astronomers believed it should be studied - as a universal birth map of your soul's chosen energies for this lifetime – this book compels you to discover the most empowering universal secret of all: your birth energies only reflect your ability to be great and shine bright in this lifetime because they’re actually a celestial documentation of your soul’s promise to aim higher and do better than it did in the last one. In short, your birth chart is your soul’s Contract with the Universe. It can’t help but reveal where you’re destined to succeed in the material world because it illuminates your soul’s promise to evolve in the spiritual one. Who knew? Certainly not us, and that’s our dilemma. We humans have no conscious memory of our unconscious past. It’s also why Cosmic Karma is a must-read. It will help you connect all the cosmic dots in your birth chart by giving you all the karmic tools you’ll need to identify them.  (edited by author)

"Warm, funny, and upbeat, Cosmic Karma makes the astrology chart understandable to anyone interested in questions of spiritual purpose. A valuable, accessible book, with much helpful counsel in its cheerful pages." - Mountain Astrologer

"Cosmic Karma is INCREDIBLE."--Lisa Mc Sherry,

"A wonderfully useful guide to understanding your contract with the universe." -- F. Reed Brown, president of United Metaphysical Churches, Roanoke, Va. and pastor of Arlington Metaphysical Chapel, Arlington, Va

Thank you Marguerite." -- Phyllis Pricer, hostess of "The Higher Dimension" on BBS Radio

"The 12th house chapter is the best I've ever seen, which is to say I read both the signs that appear in my 12th and was shocked. I've been in the astro book biz, one way or another, more than 20 years. I've seen lots of books. Shock doesn't happen often anymore...darn impressive." -- David Roell,

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for the Beginner August 28, 2007
I don't have an in-depth background in astrology or the analysis of my own astrological chart but this book was perfect for me. It is extremely well-written and easy to understand, and profound in its insight. I enjoyed it immensely and learned a great deal about my destiny and place in the universal scheme of things!

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely worth buying October 26, 2012
I know a little bit about astrology, probably more than your Average Joe, but certainly not enough to whip up my own chart or do my own forecasts. I've got a decent sized collection of books on the topic, and this is one of my favorites. Not only is it really easy to understand and use (and fun to read), it also focuses on an aspect of the chart that isn't covered in any of the other books that I've seen. I called in to a radio show that the author was on and got a quickie "Cosmic Karma" reading, and she NAILED it. Marguerite Manning really does know her stuff, and I totally recommend this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings February 20, 2010
By Narmine
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
OK. I know that those who dared to criticize any part of this book have been criticized by the fans of this author. Nevertheless, I`m taking the risk and I`m going to say that I wasn`t completely satisfied with this book. I bought it because of the excellent reviews that I read here and I was curious to get some more karma or background info on my and my relatives` birth chart.
My first impression was that the author concentrated too much on areas that are more general and easy to find anywhere else, like "The Sun Sign: Your Karmic Degree". I am sorry but I haven`t learned anything new about my sign here at all, it`s basically a typical description of your Zodiac sign that you can find anywhere online (only retold with different words and style), exactly the same keywords, almost identical information. It would be OK if the book was about the Zodiac signs only but I would expect some more karma details or more author`s thoughts or karma philosophy over here. A retold description is simply not enough for me. This part of the book makes about 54 pages which is makes almost one third of the book with no authentic info. You can find it online for free.

I noticed the same tendency in some other parts of the book. Let`s take, for example, Neptune in the 10th house. I compared it with another online source. Again, it`s almost the same, only retold, I can`t help it. The keywords like parental authorities, professional career, public reputation, professional reputation, public scandal, experience with father, superiors, public image simply keep repeating. So - do not take it personally, but I know how some books are being made - basically, if you are good at working with the language and know how to retell things, you also can write a similar book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, Great Astrologer December 13, 2012
I received this book to review before booking Marguerite on my show, "That's What He Siad..." I was blown away by not only the book but the person behind. She provides practical, accessible information about natal charts in a way that I can truly understand. She brought my faith back to astrology, because I am a big skeptic. Get your chart done first ( you can find free online versions) and then buy the book. It amazing what you will learn about yourself and your karma.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect read for those new to spiritual astrology! February 21, 2013
By Trine29
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have been studying astrology on and off for 13 years, but my investigations have been limited mostly to the "personality blueprint" qualities painted by the planets, signs, and houses, along with some research into the aspects between planets. In my experience, astrology has always painted a picture of who we are, but Marguerite Manning tells us why.

For me, this book has illuminated a whole new way of seeing astrology, and it is utterly fascinating. After I finished poring over my own planets, I found myself on skype with a fellow astrologer friend, and literally read hers aloud. Not once did either of us find ourselves in disagreement with the text. In fact, most of the time, we were enthralled by the accuracy of Marguerite, and found ourselves exclaiming with humor or reverence in turn at how deep and insightful her interpretations were. This friend of mine is the one who introduced me to astrology all those years ago, and she is twice my age. She promptly bought the book, even though I read so much of it to her.

I strongly recommend this book to those who want to take a deeper look into astrology, not only as a blueprint for your personality, but as a roadmap that tells where you have been, and where you should be going.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Book That Comes From A Different Angle January 6, 2013
By Brett
I bet many people in this world are not even aware that Karmic Astrology even exists. Most people these days are so used to looking up their horoscopes and leaving it at that. Some people pay astronomical amounts of money for astrologers only to be told what house your planet is in and what it's aspecting without fully understanding what's really going on, and then usually forgetting about it in a couple months.

This book will help you look at astrology from a different angle by learning the relationship between astrology and your karmic past lives. Understanding why you go through such difficulties in some of the areas your life has a karmic reason to it, and this book carves the way to understanding your self, soul, and your contract with the universe.

For those who have followed Marguerite in the past you will find that having something written down for you to reference your chart at any time is a rare treat that you will come to appreciate each time you read the book.

For those of you studying astrology, this is another great tool to use, and surely you can gain wisdom and knowledge to pass on to your own clients if you read charts.

For those of you who know how to read your chart and have a bit of experience, this book may or may not be for you. It would be fair to say that this book has been simplified enough to help those who are new to astrology (specifically Karmic Astrology) understand the basic principles of their chart, hence a couple of negative reviews that have been written on this book. However, I think astrology lovers will appreciate Marguerite's efforts as you see her personality and wisdom shines through with the various humorous bits and pieces found throughout this book.

If you're new to astrology and get this book, you will have a lot of fun. If you are experienced with astrology, read this book with an open mind and heart as you may gain some wisdom of your own.
