Only Astrology Book You’ll Ever Need by Joanna Martine. Excellent book, but I hate to tell you it is definitely NOT the only astrology book you’ll ever need. It is a great first book to read. It is easy to understand with no prior knowledge of astrology required. It spends quite a bit of time on sun signs which probably makes most astrologers want to throw this book across the room.
It’s nice to have a copy of a birth chart when using this book. This book made me comfortable looking at a chart. However, don’t be like me and try to do a 10-page birth chart analysis from just using this book. It will not go well. It won’t be accurate because you need to know more than what is in this book.
The book covers moon and ascendant signs, cusps, and houses. It also goes into detail on each planet. I do recommend this book. Obviously. But know this is only the beginning.
Holistic Tarot: An Integrative Approach to Using Tarot for Personal Growth by Benebell Wen - I don’t use all her meanings of the cards in my practice, but I find the book pack full of knowledge. There are helpful spreads, the history of tarot, ideas on how to start a tarot journal, useful keywords to learn tarot and more.
