The purpose of this post is to present my list of the top 6 best astrology books for new students of astrology.
In this list I focus primarily on books that cover the basics of the fourfold system that is common in most approaches to western astrology, which includes 1) the planets, 2) signs of the zodiac, 3) the doctrine of aspects, and 4) the concept of the 12 houses.
Each of these books can be read by those who have no background in astrology, and some of them also contain interpretations, so that you can look up the meaning of specific placements in your birth chart.
One thing that I should say from the start is that astrology requires a lot of study, so don’t expect to only end up with one astrology book ever, but instead this will probably be the starting point for eventually building up a small library on the subject if you stick with it.
That being said, if you had to start with just one book, below you will find some great recommendations to consider.
