The Holiday Season is upon us and the organizations that speak for astrologers everywhere are feeling generous.
Managing Editor Edward Snow of the Astrology News Service (ANS) says a new, deeply-discounted book the organizations are urging members to “give away” to others can be ordered here.
The 212-page book, “Astrology Considered: A Thinking Person’s Guide,” is comprised of selected articles and news features from the popular ANS website and encourages readers to consider astrological truth claims from a fresh perspective.
“On one level the book is a response to astrology’s vocal critics. But a hoped-for takeaway will be greater appreciation for an evolving worldview that has withstood the test of time,” Snow said.
ANS is jointly sponsored by the American Federation of Astrologers (AFA), the Association for Astrological Networking (AFAN), the International Society for Astrological Research (ISAR), the National Council for Geocosmic Research (NCGR) and the Organization for Professional Astrologers (OPA). Publication of the book was made possible by grants from the Urania Trust and the Catharine and Ernest Grant Trust.
The book is priced at $24.95. However, those purchasing the book from the ANS website will receive two free copies to give away to others as part of an ongoing information campaign that ambitiously seeks to improve the public’s perception of astrology – one person at a time.
“Most astrologers or fans of astrology count among the people they know at least two individuals who are either skeptical of astrology or know very little about it. These individuals may be fence-straddling friends, family members or anyone else who might be receptive if given compellingly credible reasons why they should consider the merits of astrology.
“Those with a longer shopping list can add additional books to their initial order for $10 each,” he said.
Snow says the book is organized in three sections and provides a spate of convincing arguments astrologers – or fans of serious astrology – will want to share with others.
Articles in Part I provide an in-depth examination of the philosophical issues astrology provokes. Part II produces supportive statistical evidence while Part III is a news and views section providing additional reasons why readers should consider the subject with an open mind.
