New Age – Astrology in Popular Culture

Every man and his dog must have had a copy of Linda Goodman’s Sun Signs on their bookshelf back in the 1970s. As did I, as well as a copy of Linda Goodman’s Love Signs.

Perhaps not as well known as Linda Goodman, Liz Greene also produced books with similar titles. I preferred her interpretations – they had a more intelligent approach. I always thought her book on Saturn was an excellent book on that much maligned planet. I was interested in Saturn as my own horoscope has a very dominant Saturn, which I figure has given me my phlegmatic and stoical approach to life along with a certain dour seriousness and an appreciation for black humour.

Another book in the popular context is Moon Signs by Sybil Leek and Sun Sign Revelations by Marie Elise Crummere.

Back to the more studious side of Astrology there is also A Handbook for the Humanist Astrologer by Michael Meyer and Astrology for the Aquarian Age by Alexandra Mark
