You probably already know Phil from his blog Astrofuture Trends, he is one of my favorite astrobloggers. I am late in posting this review of his excellent book Cosmic Trends which is now available in bookstores. Or order it on this site (see link to the left) which will send a few sheckels in my direction.
Over the past 30 years I have probably read over 200 astrology books, and it takes a lot to excite me. Philip Brown’s new book Cosmic Trends: Astrology Connects the Dots did just that. This is a book that truly does connect the dots between seemingly unrelated events, drawing a beautiful picture of the ebb and flow that connects our popular culture with our inner worlds and gives life a new sense of meaning.
In this book, Phil brings the complex symbols of astrology down to earth in a way that anyone can find useful. This book truly does make connections between astrology and our everyday lives that provide a window ino the workings of astrology and open up the mystery for all to enjoy.
Newbies to astrology will love the way Phil demonstrates the way the planets operate astrologically by using every day examples such as describing the way Neptune cycles have affected fashion trends. Astrology experts will find a new way of thinking about the way astrology connects to our mundane reality. There are profiles of famous people that are entertaining but also offer insight into the role of those individuals in the public culture and astrological cycles.
On every page there is a new surprise that is both educational and enlightening, as well as just plain enjoyable. This is a great book for anyone!
