Astrology is a powerful tool for understanding many aspects of our lives. With understanding, we can use astrology to look at our personal lives, work situations, difficulties, relationships, and more. Here are a few of my favorite books about astrology, mostly for beginners!

The Best Books on Astrology


The Only Astrology Book You’ll Ever Need is a fantastic book that is well-titled. This book contains all you need to know about astrology, including compatibility between each sign, what the signs mean for money, romance, and more, and the negative aspects of each sign. This new version also dives in deeply to the individual and their personal emotional and spiritual needs.


The Secret Language of Birthdays is a unique book that combines horoscopes, numerology, and basic psychic intuition to teach you about strengths, weaknesses, and issues. One thing I love about this book is that it gives practical advice and suggestions. Along with The Only Astrology Book You’ll Ever Need, I think these are two of the best astrology books for beginners out there right now.


The Astrology Bible is exactly as it sounds. It’s definitely one of the best classic astrology books, and contains a ton of information. Laid out in a reference-style format, this book will help you learn all you need to know about astrology. It includes information about horoscopes, planets, house, and much more. It goes through relationships, love, career, finances, and much more. Definitely a must-have for anyone interested in astrology!


Astrology for Wellness: Star Sign Guides for Body, Mind & Spirit Vitality is a relatively new find, and a book that offers a unique perspective. It is a great modern interpretation of all things astrology. Astrology for Wellness gives you insight into your work life, daily stressors, relationships and more. It focuses on health and wellness for the mind, body, and spirit in the 21st century. In my opinion, it’s one of the most pragmatic resources for learning astrology in modern times.


The Art and Science of Vedic Astrology is simply the best book on Vedic Astrology in my opinion. If you are interested in this ancient form of astrology, you absolutely must read this book. Learn to map the soul, read the charts of the stars, and more. In addition to being a great book, you get a ton of video lessons and explanations when you buy this book!


Horoscope & Astrology 2019 is obviously made for this year. It’s one of my favorite horoscope astrology books for this year, and I strongly recommend checking it out! It’s a short book that provides some insight into what you can expect this year. Not much to say here, other than its a great guide to horoscope astrology this year, and their books are consistently good every year!


The Astrology of You and Me: How to Understand and Improve Every Relationship in Your Life is one of my favorite astrology books that really addresses relationships. I expected this book to be about intimate relationships, but it actually addresses all different types of relationships in our lives. With the help of this book, you can learn to live your life in harmony with the stars and cosmos.


The Only Way to Learn Astrology is a great book series. It’s a classic astrology book that has withstood the test of time. The first book teaches basic principles such as signs, planets, and houses. It then goes into delineation, placement, and more. The whole six-part series is like a master class of astrology. Although these books are a bit dense and long, it’s perhaps the best way to learn astrology.

Essential Astrology is last but certainly not least. Amy Herring is a true expert, and she writes in a way that is both deeply insightful and easy to understand. If you’re looking for a book that is simple to absorb, this is my pick for you! It goes pretty in-depth, but is made especially for beginners to astrology.
