Listen...I am not an astrology girly. I like to look at my sign (Sagittarius) when I see astrology things and have a little chuckle and roll my eyes when it's incorrect but.
After this book, I might be an astrology girly?
Honestly haven't felt this called out in a long time. And then I went through and looked at friends' and family's birthdays and....it was haunting.
Of course, astrology is not an end-all-be-all, and I did find a couple that were just so-so in their observations, but so much of what I read spooked me out and, lowkey, I am considering buying a physical copy of this book.
This is a fun book. As someone who is always curious about what day I was born on, astrological signs, this was just a great book to read. I would highly recommend.
Thank you to netgalley and the publisher for an advanced copy of “The Complete Book of Birthdays - Gift Edition” by Clare Gibson. All opinions are my own.
I’ll admit I’m not that knowledgeable about astrology. I have always felt a strong connection to my birthday and sun sign though so I am very open to learning. I like that this book had information about the history of astrology. Also the page on my birthday read like a page from my own diary. For comparison, the birthdays before and after were totally opposite of me.
As the title recommends, this would be a great gift for someone who is interested and astrology and wants to learn more.
Obviously I did not read all 366 days, but I read many.
Never before have I read such spot on descriptions. I loved learning more about friends and family by their date of birth.
The writing flows and is easy to understand. The history section is extremely informative, and the side notes made it even more interesting.
I love this. This had descriptions specifically for each date of the year, categorized by zodiac sign, starting with the first zodiac, Aries. It gives the dates for each zodiac sign and explains the various planets and how they correspond with astrology. Very informative for more than just the birthdays
Cute book with detailed explanations about the importance of the day in question, and a bit of history as well. All together was a very nice book and I really enjoyed learning about my own birthday as well as others.
This was spot on accurate for everyone in my family! We all enjoyed sharing the birth days with each other. I find this type of stuff very interesting and think it would make a fun birthday gift for anyone.
I've always been slightly obsessed with astrology, numerology, and the like so when I saw this book was available as a READ NOW option, I jumped at it. The level of insight and accuracy into the personalities of my closest friends and family was amazing. When I went to my own birthday entry, my mind was truly blown away. It's like the author peeked into my life and then wrote this entry - even my chosen career field is correct!
If you're a fan of astrology, this book is definitely for you!
This was such a fun book and would be great for a birthday gift. My family had so much fun reading through the different sections for our birthdays. So many things were spot on. I really liked how it was organized and it had some very interesting facts. This will definitely a book I will be gifting in the future!
Fantastic Book of Predictions
Clare provides an overview of the study of astrology in the past, whereas ancient stargazers, lacked instruments like the telescope with which to study the heavens in accurate detail. However, they still discerned that certain astral bodies comprised fixed formations that moved in a predictable fashion through the night sky, and their appearance and disappearance heralding the changes of season.
She states It was only through the ground-breaking work of later astronomers as Nicolaus Copernicus, and Galileo Galilei, were today’s astronomers able to benefit from the knowledge undreamed of by the ancients.
The author discusses the origins and principles of western astrology from the zodiac, the planets, the elements, and other aspects of astrology. She states that just as Western astrology acknowledges the importance of the ascendant sign at time of birth, in the Chinese system the influence of the creature that prevailed at the hour of birth is said to affect the way in which people present themselves to others,
according to the “personality” of the creature in whose year they were born.
This is a fascinating book, however, due to it length, I did not read the personality predictions for all 365 days. I do highly recommend it. Fantastic reference book.
