Review by Lee Prosser - email@example.com
For astrology readers, this is an entertaining and thoughtful look at Mayan astrology. It is based on twenty named days which are cycled thirteen times to create a 260-day calendar that is called the Tzolkin.
Bruce Scofield and Barry C. Orr explain how the symbolism, logic, and meanings of the twenty-day signs apply to the individual. They identify how these signs reflect 260 possible personality types and how each can be used for divination.
Bear Books has once again brought a fine book to the readers. Full of interesting insights and observations, the authors are to be congratulated on a well-written astrology book which covers a subject rarely seen in print. The tables make up a considerable portion of the book and serve as a distinct guide to casting the horoscope.
Step-by-step, the reader is given a sound and logical explanation of Mayan astrology. The definitions and discussion of the signs is precise. A guide to the culture of the Mayans is given for reference.
Well-written. Interesting. Enjoyable.
