Love, Sex and Evolutionary Astrology Skymates
Authors: Jodie Forrest, Steve Forrest
Publisher: Seven Paws Press, 2002 POB 2345 Chapel Hill NC 27515
Soft cover: $19.95
Skymates is a collaboration
between Jodie Forrest and Steve Forrest. The authors state, This new edition of Skymates is based on the previous edition
in about the same way a Boeing 777 is based on the contraption the Wright brothers flew.
Skymates is an expanded version of the original book. The book builds on Steve Forrests previous works, but is not
dependant. It does not contain analysis of composite charts. A separate book on composite chart analysis is in the works due
to be released in 2003.
The new edition of Skymates has taken a revolutionary, in depth, and holistic look at how
we relate to others via our planets and aspects. The beginning of the book is
devoted to a brief but comprehensive explanation of basic astrology, signs, planets, houses, etc. geared toward the beginning
astrologer. Even for the initiated this short section contains reference tables of valuable keywords and phrases.
The initial half of the book is devoted to exploring the charts as separate entities
The later half of the
book is devoted to exploring the interaction between the charts, synastry!
Newcomers to astrology
or synastry will appreciate how the authors lay out a simple step, by step approach with lots of encouragement for walking
through the maze of interpreting how through the lens of astrology people relate to one another. If you are an experienced
astrologer, this is an invaluable reference book, with exciting new interpretations and guidelines to keep your analysis on
track and innovative. The book is sprinkled with entertaining metaphors and analogies that point the reader to a new perception
if not comical realizations. Many a chapter begins with an editorial new look at an old devil plaguing relationships and astrology
