Age of Aquarius Astrology
A Learning Game & Divination System
Designed by Therese Francis
Review by Alice T.
I recall how overwhelming the study of Astrology can be -- The incredible number of things to be learned and assimilated can seem staggering. In Age of Aquarious Astrology, the Ms. Francis had done a great job taken the first elements, kept them relatively simple and made them fun to learn. A wonderful way to teach. Her knowledge of astrology is sound, her definitions accurate and up to date. I am particularly impressed by her use of the Inconjunct/Quincunx and Quintile aspects along with the Part of Fortune and the Nodes of the Moon. Ms. Francis shows wisdom in including Chiron and the other Asteroids. Astrology is an ever evolving art and Ms. Francis is clearly up to date on the latest developments and discoveries. She has presented a format that should intrigue those wishing to begin the study and even the more advanced student who are wishing to go on to a higher level. Highly Recommended.

Review by GreyBoar
Celtic Borders by Aidan Meehan is an excellent learning guide for those ‘budding’ artists wanting to enhance their works with intricate celtic edges. The author takes the student through step by step processes until each design enfolds upon itself making a complete border.
The twenty borders illustrated incorporate humans, birds and dogs including my two favorites, the “Double Spiral” and “The Tree-Of-Life” patterns. The “Double Spiral” is similar to the ancient “La-Tene” style, whereas “The Tree-Of-Life” seems to be much like a celtic rendering of mistletoe leaves and berries. As memntioned on the back cover, these borders are sized to fit standard letter sized paper and could be used on stationery, illuminated pages or any other suitable project.
