This book was recommended as part of a Tarot course covering the correspondences between Tarot and Astrology. I admit that I really had no interest in learning the Sabian Symbols prior to the class, but there they were in the middle of my 6 week course.
I was blown away by the amount of information in the book. It is well written and easy to understand. Sure you can Google the information, but none of the online sites give this amount of information to the casual seeker since their focus is on the more serious astrologer.
I Highly recommend this book to anyone interested in learning more about how the stars influence who you are
Birkbeck does a very nice job of breaking the oracle down into four areas of inquiry: general interpretation, love/relating/social, money/work/creativity and karma/attitude/health. Each section describes what "to keep focused on" and "what to watch out for." Each area of inquiry is a couple of paragraphs long, is well written and provides some "food for thought" in mulling over any future decision, action, idea that you might be contemplating. I think Birkbeck's interpretations are very positive and thoughtful, while still allowing for the ability to suggest times when you might want to pause or even to take a second thought about proceeding with an intended course of action.
In the beginning of the book Birkbeck outlines a simple method of throwing a die (in a series of 4 throws) to determine the actual house/sign and degree to consult. On the positive side it is a very simple oracle method -- you are not having to carry cards, coins, etc. I'm also glad that it is in a kindle format and I'm not having to hunt for a physical book!
My only complaint is that the book is not "synced" to the symbols for ease of accessing the information. Perhaps if the symbols had been, at least, divided into the 12 houses, then the houses could have been synced in the Table of Contents; it then would have been a simple matter of scrolling to the correct degree of the house (1-30 degrees in each house.) FYI: my own solution was to jot down the "page number" for each House page (Aries through Pisces) and then use the "go to page/location" function in the toolbar to get to the correct House and then simply "turn" to the correct degree within the house. Even with that little hitch it is well worth the price -- hope this is helpful!
