The New Astrology - book by Nicholas Campion and Steve Eddy - The Art and Science of the StarsThe New Astrology
The Art and Science of the Stars
by Nicholas Campion and Steve Eddy

The New Astrology written by veteran astrologers, Nicholas Campion and Steve Eddy, is a masterly exploration of the myth, symbolism, history, belief and current scientific theory surrounding the cosmos. The profound meanings humanity has attributed to the stars, constellations and planets since earliest times are examined, including their psychological and mystical attributions, the rituals and festivals associated with the heavenly bodies, their mythical and religious significance and their astronomical status, while new evidence for real connections between our Lives and planetary cycles is collected together here for the first time. Myths and theories explaining the existence of the universe have embodied the deepest hopes and fears of cultures throughout the ages, and this exciting and wide-ranging study will fascinate anyone who wishes to develop a deeper understanding of our complex, multi-faceted bond with the heavens, throughout ages and across cultures.

"[The New Astrology] is a masterpiece of synthesis, bringing together the latest perspective and discoveries of astronomical science, and the most ancient star lore collected from several different cultures. It deserves a place on the shelf of anyone interested in astrology."
            Melanie Reinhart, The Astrological Journal, Vol. 42 no 1, Jan/Feb 2000

"[The New Astrology] is a beautifully designed, visually exciting reference book. The kind you put on your bookshelf and take down for the pleasure of thumbing through."
                  Helen Jacobus, Astrology Quarterly Vol. 70 no 1, Winter 1999/2000

"The book is a feast for the eyes and a pleasure for the mind, and would make a beautiful gift anyone would love to receive, non-astrologers included."
                                    The International Astrologer, vol. 29 no 1, Spring 2000.
