Revised Reprint of The Night Speaks
by Steven Forrest
Santa Claus is being good to me this year. I am getting a gift that I have wanted for a very long time – my fourth book, The Night Speaks, which has been unavailable for many years, is coming out again in a revised, updated edition. I am delighted to see it in print again.
The Night Speaks: How Astrology Works
I love astrology passionately. Every day I see it helping people. But on the street, astrology is still mostly viewed as silliness. Anyone who ‘believes in it’ is taken for a fool. This inspired me to ask: Could I write the book an open-minded critic might read and be inspired to give astrology an hour to prove itself? Could I write one that my clients could confidently hand their skeptical friends? In other words, could I break through the monumental wall of prejudice and ignorance that has kept astrology trapped in its ghetto? This book is my response, and explains why astrology is both intellectually and spiritually plausible.
Much of my writing over the years has been aimed at people who wanted to learn astrology. The Night Speaks serves that community, but even more, it is a book about why to do astrology – and, perhaps at an even deeper level, why to believe in it. It is, in other words, a book for anyone with an open mind and a mild interest in astrological possibilities. I think it also would make a fine, if somewhat subversive, gift for anyone who loves an astrologer, but who has not the foggiest idea what he or she thinks or does.
My special hope is that this revised edition finds its way into the hands of younger astrologers of all traditions. I first wrote it while in mid-life. Now that I am older, The Night Speaks feels like a way of passing on to those who will come after me some of the fire-in-the-belly that has kept me engaged in our mysterious, sacred craft since I was a child.
To give you a taste of the pages, we offer the introduction to the 2016 edition.
