"If youre going to read a book on astrology, it should have a fresh perspective with clear insights. It should be a little edgy so you can have some fun with it. Its got to cut to the chase and give you the real skinny on the what, where, how, when, and why of your horoscope, with no holds barred, because these days whos got time, money, or patience for fluffy, puffed up euphemism? Joyce Levines Breakthrough Astrology is the hot ticket item for astrology in the 21st century. Shes a no-nonsense writer who knows her stuff." from the Foreword by Michael Lutin, astrologer for Vanity Fair Breakthrough Astrology teaches readers to look at astrology from a psychological perspective, a process that offers tools for self-empowerment and self-improvement. In this useful introduction to psychological astrology, Joyce Levine teaches a process that is a bit like an esoteric version of the Myers-Briggs Personality Indicator, but one based on thousands of years of research, not mere decades.
Unlike hardcore advanced psychological astrology books, many of them based on one system and accessible only to those with years of astrological practice, Levine offers a comprehensive overview and then gets down to the nitty-gritty information individuals need to begin using information on their strengths and weaknesses and how to use these to an advantage. Breakthrough Astrology offers step-by-step guidance on how to get a chart and how to glean information useful to everyday living from each of the twelve houses.
