Where to Find Books on Astrology
Books with horoscopes and the like can be found everywhere - in supermarket checkout lanes or shelves of many bookstores. But the books on real astrology, books that explain different aspects of the art are harder to find.
One way to find books on astrology is to visit some occult or New Age shop. Advantage of these stores is that they will only carry books on real astrology. You will not find mere books of sun signs or horoscopes on the shelves.
The other advantage is that you will find there someone who can help you find the right books on astrology that are best for you. The attendants at the occult or New Age shop can easily show you books for the beginner, or books for the avid astrologer and books for those interested only in some particular astrological concept. Real books on astrology can be expensive and it is good to know that you are leaving the store with exactly what you came for.
If there is no occult or New Age shop near you, you can always find books on astrology on the internet. Any search for New Age books on astrology can show you many online book stores. You can always email the store owner or help desk for information, if you are not sure what to look for.
Amazon.com is one source with a lot of books on astrology. but it is best to visit online New Age book stores first. On Amazon.com you are going to find lists with hundreds of books on astrology or similar topics, but not all of them are helpful or realistic. Most of these books will be superficial and fail to mention aspects other than sun signs. Other books will be focused on horoscopes only.
This does not mean that you cannot find on Amazon books on real astrology. Many great astrology books are available there. However, if you are not sure what you are looking for you can easily get lost in abundance of information that Amazon offers. Sometimes it can be difficult to put apart the real books on astrology from the popular entertainment.
There are advantages to buying books from websites such as EBay and Amazon.com. There you can find used books that contain extensive notes from other experienced astrologers that were using them before. These notes can often be extremely helpful in filling in the blanks and learning the art of astrology.
Used books on astrology found there are also significantly less expensive. The best books on astrology can be rather large, and often cost around fifty dollars or more. If you buy these same books used you can often save as much as thirty or forty dollars.
Large book store such as Barnes and Noble often have sections dedicated to astrology and there you will have a better chance of finding books you look for than in smaller book stores. However, there you are more likely to find only popular horoscope books. True astrology handbooks are rarely found on these shelves.
