Reviews for the Year 2006
The Re-Readable Collection Of
Message From The Paper Publisher of This Column
Since 1979 Guy Spiro's Astro-Weather has come to be
widely acknowledged to be the most accurate daily astrological forecast
available. Guy lists each day's aspects and the times they occur as well
as Moon void of course times and such things as Mercury retrogrades. What
people find most valuable is the paragraph Guy writes for each day describing
how the largest number of people will experience these energies. You can
think of Astro-Weather as mental and emotional weather and the background
energy we all deal with. Understanding the general tides makes planning
and decision making much more effective. Astro-Weather is real astrology
and is a huge step up from the typical Sun-sign information that you are
used to. Watch Astro-Weather for just a few days and see why 80% of those
who buy an Astro-Weather book one year buy it the next.
Ah, but see the discounts!
