The Book of Fire
This is a wonderful and helpful book! It is such a challenge to put signs and planets into houses and Steven manages - once again - to create clarity. The lovely thing is, that this practical logic is served with plenty of inspiration!
Like most of his books, this one is superb as well. For some reason, it wasn't connecting for me the first time around. But after a few months, I tried it again it hit the spot and opened up for me. I had started with the pdf version as I couldn't wait. But later when I went to the physical book, that's when it opened up. For some reason, reading on e-books is not the same for me as a physical book even in terms of understanding the material. As with any of his astrology books, one of the best ways to digest the material (rather than just a superficial read) is to re-read them once every year or every two years. You get a lot more out of it as you see things you have missed in earlier readings or you understand things differently than the first time around. I just finished my third read and it is quite heavily marked up.
He does it again!
I can’t say too many good things about Steven Forrest, his approach to astrology, his books, genuine kindness and the impact that his words have had on my life. The Book of Fire taught me major lessons about mine and my partner’s charts, and where our spark for life lives. Will be coming back to it over and over.
Even after 53 years ….
…. of studying and teaching astrology to hundreds of beginning level students, I ALWAYS find something new when I read anything by Steven Forrest. The Book of Fire is no exception. I only wish we could clone three of him, so each clone could simultaneously be working on the rest of the series. I also appreciate the fact I can recommend his books to even those new to astrology because his writing is so clear and understandable. Thank you!
I gather books and things then pass them on so others can enjoy them. This is not only an intellectual gem but its also a work of verbal artistry. This is a keeper for me! Thank you Steve for following the inspiration to create this legacy.
