Do it Yourself Astrology: A User-Friendly Guide to Your Personality

Though this book is a little out of date, and most professionals will probably call this a waste of money, I found this book helpful and easy to use. It is set up for easy reading and the easy creation of birth charts. Lyn Birkbeck delves into explanations to what things like “Jupiter in Aries” means, and doesn’t give you a one-line description. He really goes in-depth, and explains things so that everyone can understand them.
If you have a general interest in astrology, but don’t exactly know how to do the complicated calculations that are required for more “precise” birth charts, this book is the one for you.

Published in 1996 by Element Books

Other Books by Lyn Birkbeck: Divine Astrology: The Cosmic Religion: Enlisting the Aid of the Planetary Powers; Understanding the Future: A Survivors Guide to Riding the Cosmic Wave, The Major Astrological Predictions from Now to 2020; The Instant Astrologer; The Watkins Astrology Handbook: The Practical System of DIY Astrology; Astro Wisdom; Astrological Oracle; Do It Yourself Life Plan Astrology: How Planetary Cycles Affect Your Whole Life; Do It Yourself Relationship Astrology

Is it easy to read? Yeah, it is set up for easy use, though you may have to read the chart instructions a few times before it makes sense, but it’s quite easy to pick up. I learned how to use it in about an hour.
Is it easy to follow along with? For the most part, yes.
Is it interesting? Yes
How long does it take to read? Probably less than a week, maybe five days. Most of the book is made up of tables, so you don’t really have to read them unless you are working on making a birth chart.
Overall: 4/5

Is the author knowledgeable? Yes
Is the knowledge valuable? Yes
Is the knowledge new knowledge or is it common knowledge? Some of it is common and easy to find, but a lot of it I had heard of, but never really got to read about it in depth.
Is it cohesive and relevant? Kind of. Heh, sometimes it gets a little confusing.
Other notes: It’s a little out of date, and only has charts from 1900 to 2000. With a little research, you could estimate positions past 2000, but that might be hard to do.
Overall: 4/5

Is the book set up for easy reference: Yes
Is the layout or design obnoxious or annoying? No
Overall: 5/5

Do you recommend this book? Yes
Was it worth the money? This book is expensive regular priced. I found it in the Bargain Books section for about $10, so it was defiantly worth that.
Will You Purchase Other Books from this Author?: I’m not sure, but probably not.
Overall: 13/15
