- Linda Goodman's Love Signs: A New Approach to the Human Heart by Linda Goodman.
Linda Goodman is such a talented author because while teaching her readers about the sun signs and how the behave around each other but she uses his words in such a poetic way that just blows the readers away. This book helped me a lot with my relationships in my family. As I was reading this book I realized that Linda loves to use similes, and I love reading similies so this book was just perfect for me. Also Linda m This book was great.
Also Linda makes learning new and different things fun and enjoyable! And thats all you can ask from an author as reader, so this book was just amazing to read and I enjoyed it a lot. Oct 12, Tine! Maybe it's just me, but I like this book, and I think it likes me, too. But wait - it can't just be me! I used to bring this around with me to classes and such, letting others flip to the pages corresponding to their current relationship-fixation and watching them intensely study whatever "fate" might be written there. In most cases, interested persons were already at least identified with their sun sign, and so you might say that I'm reviewing as and for biased parties, but MAN, Linda Goodman s Maybe it's just me, but I like this book, and I think it likes me, too.
In most cases, interested persons were already at least identified with their sun sign, and so you might say that I'm reviewing as and for biased parties, but MAN, Linda Goodman sure can pen down that flowery language for each sign as though she's been there before, and it impresses all those I've talked to.
In some cases, I've seen this book produce tears. Without having to delve into the common issues with astrology, I would just have to say that Goodman presents her interpretation of sign-sign interaction thoroughly and provides an optimistic bent for the general pessimistic prophecies some combinations inevitably produce and is incredibly good at establishing an emotional connection across paper-and-ink barriers, which is probably what you're looking for if you pick up this book.
This book is accurate in so many ways.
I found it in my early 20's and I use it to this day - this would be a great astrological book to recomment to anyone who has been hesitant to buy one. Sep 27, Xenomantid rated it really liked it Recommends it for: old married women, conventional mystics, people nostalgic for the '70s. Shelves: times-were-different , occult , favorites , s , guilty-pleasure. From the earliest days of my fascination with astrology, there was one author whose work invariably left me with mixed feelings: Linda Goodman.
Although her work remains popular among the more conventional mystics, most practicing occultists never even mention her. Frankly, some of her advice was rather suspect. To this day, I have yet to read any other astrology books that propose that the real ruler of Taurus is not Venus, but a planet called Pan-Horus.
Equating gods who belong to two differe From the earliest days of my fascination with astrology, there was one author whose work invariably left me with mixed feelings: Linda Goodman. Equating gods who belong to two different pantheons and have virtually nothing in common in the first place is, if you can believe it, easier to overlook than many of the other quirks of Goodman's writing.
The real draw, if you can dignify it with such a designation, of Linda Goodman's output is her hokey writing style. Her first book, Linda Goodman's Sun Signs , frequently read like a corny pop ballad from the s, but it was still just barely sensible enough for a believer to consider it credible.
Aquarius Romantic Compatibility Through The Signs
Wendy was clearly a Cancerian--motherly, possessive, gentle and imaginative, trying out her wings in a flight of fancy under the Full Moon, as Moon Maidens often do. No strong Sun Sign harmony between them, you see, so they quarreled now and then, and each heard a different drummer. Wendy ended up in the final chapter as nearly all Cancerians do, safe and secure.
No matter how wistfully her heart longed to fly again, she chose home, marriage and children as her ultimate dreams; while Peter, like nearly all Geminis, continued his eternal search for a brighter rainbow, somewhere beyond Aries females invariably get all soft and squishy inside at the mere thought of True Love, their idealism in affairs of the heart being as eternal as Spring itself.
But really now, dear Aries girl, when you're honest with yourself, would it all have been quite so magical if the fiery courageous Princess had come charging bravely into the woods on her horse to claim her Prince and rescue him from the Wicked Witch?
The same meditation should be practiced on all the other faerie tales she still believes in, and dreams of every fortnight or so. Imagine dainty Cinderella, red-faced, puffing and perspiring, as she tried to shove a glass Hush-Puppy on her Prince's foot, to see if it fitted him. Mother Nature knows what she's doing.
The Aries man-woman relationship will stand a better chance of success if she permits him to steal her Mars thunder Goodman, Plenty of women--Aries women in particular--would jump at the chance to take charge of rescue missions. In fact, anyone who has familiarized himself, herself, or itself with fairy tale canon knows that "fiery, courageous" heroines are a staple of folklore: the Goose Girl, Kate Crackernuts, the woman who saved the Sleeping Prince, Marjorie in "The Juniper Tree.
I will not quote it here because so much is wrong with it that I cannot possibly decide where to begin. Goodman herself acknowledges its perverseness. In Goodman's world, there is one ideal relationship: gender-conforming man with gender-conforming woman. The closer one adheres to this Platonic form, the more attuned to nature one is. Later, after she'd passed that test, without returning to her old, domineering ways, he permitted her to design jewels for the ladies of Padua, as a full-time career.
Eventually, she became quite famous and succeesful, which fretted her lover-husband not a whiffle or a trifle because, you see, she never disputed his masculine rights. She always came happily skipping, on-the-double, when her Lord and Master regally commanded, "Come here, and kiss me, Kate! Acquiescence in a subordinate is the key to a successful unequal relationship: boss and employee, master and servant, teacher and student, parent and child--provided, of course, that the superior's behavior remains within reasonable bounds.
Should the superior overstep the boundaries, then that is his problem, not the subordinate's. A wife, however, is not a subordinate, to dispute Confucianism itself. The idea that an aggressive woman can love a passive man or vice versa never enters this book. Healthy romantic relationships must be between equals, a concept apparently foreign to these pages.
Yes, plenty of other sections mainly those involving the Leo Woman, with the exception above extol the "necessity" of a man being a servant to the woman instead of the reverse.
But the notion that a romantic relationship between a master and a servant is unhealthy seems to elude this tome. Appealing to classic literature is one of Goodman's tactics; she also claims that a deeper understanding of the morals and metaphors in fairy tales would eliminate the need for psychiatric treatment. Apparently, she never read The Canterbury Tales. No fair allowing one sex to take priority of mention over the other.sobesvine.tk

Everything must be nicely balanced. The sense of poetry and beauty and harmony in Librans extends also to the equality of their relationship. Just is just. Male chauvinism is just so Don't you think? Goodman, So you see, Goodman never claims that women are inferior to men. She insists at every turn that the man must be in charge of a romantic relationship, though she never states it quite that explicitly. If it puzzles you that she repeatedly expresses support for the ERA, yet describes dominance as "masculine" and submission as "feminine," your reaction indicates not that you are blind to any strand of esoteric wisdom, but that you do not share Goodman's Victorian interpretations of gender.
You see, to Goodman, virtually everything exists on a dichotomy. Characteristics are either masculine or feminine, and what characteristics are which depends on the way they have been seen traditionally. Thus, dominance, power, force, determination, stubbornness, and boldness are masculine; submission, gentleness, passivity, dependence, receptiveness, and nurturing are feminine.
For this reason, Goodman heavily implies that Aries women are liberated because they are "masculine" and that Pisces women enjoy being submissive because they are "feminine. The world is not cast entirely in shades of gray. Sometimes black and white are indeed all that exist.
Goodman's overwhelmingly polarized view of sexuality, however, is not conducive to a better understanding of what makes human relationships thrive. For all the criticism I've given this book, however, I will grant that it never becomes boring. Like Gone with the Wind a book Goodman worshiped , Linda Goodman's Love Signs hovers at the thousand-page mark, but contains no dull moments. It's fascinating reading, for a variety of reasons.

Aug 30, Diamond rated it it was amazing Shelves: re-read , romance , own , greatgifting , reference , love , purposeful-reading , astrology. Linda Goodman is amazing. I can see why she is so widely referenced and exalted. Just, Wow. I never had so many insights in one book about myself and others close to me. Pairings that I actually had no personal interest in besides curiosity were just as illuminating as the ones I was eager to read the combinations of myself and past relationships, for example.
Really helpful also for those studying astrology like myself who are new to the study of astrology.
Aries Woman and Taurus Man Compatibility From Linda Goodman’s Love...
Jan 05, Jaclyn Goss rated it it was amazing Shelves: new-age. Love this book!!! Love Linda goodman in general. She is a great astrologer, and really hits the spot most of the time. The book has general info on signs but goes further by explaining your relationship to other signs. The one flaw in this book, though you can read around it, is that it first gives a brief overview of say cancer pisces, then cancer man, pisces women, and then cancer woman pisces man. The disadvantage to this is when I want to know about same sex relationships, wether they be rom Love this book!!!
The disadvantage to this is when I want to know about same sex relationships, wether they be romantic or non romantic you are stuck reading the much shorter overview. It's a great help in learning about my relations with others, in love, friendship, or family. I like that she does dialogue sections, because they really ass a lot of humor. I also like that her tone is loving of every sign and you couldn't really pick what her sign was without looking it up.
