If you’re interested in learning more about your astrological sign, but you haven’t been sure where to start, we’re here for you! One of our main goals at Birthdate Co. is to give everyone the information that they need to really be able to understand themselves.
Having that level of insight into who you are and why you may do certain things can also help you learn to live your best life. Astrology can help you learn about your advantages as well as your flaws so that you can embrace both and become exactly the person you were meant to be.
You Were Born For This: Astrology For Self-Acceptance by Chani Nicholas
What good is astrology if it can’t help you love yourself on a deeper level? Chani Nicholas understands this, which is why she created a book all about it. After all, horoscopes are only the very tip of the zodiac iceberg.
To truly dive deep into your horoscope, you’ll need to develop your full natal chart. This requires both the time and date of your birth, as well as where exactly in the world you were born. The position of the sun, moon, planets, and stars each play a specific but equally important role in who you are. When you study them, they give you a road map of your strengths, weaknesses, and other characteristics.
With this book, Nicholas helps guide people through understanding their natal chart on a deeper level. She also provides her own insight along the way, offering up interpretations and suggestions about how you can make your life what it was always meant to be. That’s the power of self-acceptance. When you learn how to accept who you are, you also improve your overall sense of well-being.
Sextrology: The Astrology Of Sex And The Sexes by Stella Starsky and Quinn Cox
If you’re looking for a way to look not only at your astrological sign but how your sign is compatible with others, this is the book for you.
While there are a lot of books on the market that look at astrology and sexual compatibility, Starsky and Cox take things to a whole other level. You’ll probably find insights into your nature that will shock you to your core with their accuracy, which is why this is one of the best astrology books out there.
However, when you really take those insights into consideration, you have the potential to really change up your entire approach to relationships. The book looks at sexuality from the perspective of people who identify as male or female (there isn’t a gender-neutral option, unfortunately), and isn’t biased about which gender they are attracted to. This makes it a refreshing, inclusive alternative to a lot of the older, stuffier sextrology books out there.
So, if you’re looking to take your sex game up a notch, why not use your own astrology as a wingman?

The Only Astrology Book You’ll Ever Need by Joanna Martine Woolfolk
This book has long been considered to be the golden standard in astrological “handbooks.” It’s especially helpful for anyone who is just starting out learning about astrology, as it starts with the basics and builds its way up. While it was originally written back in 1982, it has been updated a few times since then.
However, astrology hasn’t really changed all that much since then. What has changed is the ways in which we find it. With the help of Woolfolk, you’ll be able to create your own, basic birth chart. It’s a great way to dip your toe into the zodiac without having to have any background knowledge.
In addition, this book dives into the history of astrology. That allows you to be able to look at it from a well-rounded perspective, and really appreciate all that we know about how the sun, moon, planets, and stars impact us. There really is so much more to what’s in the sky than just simple astronomy. Sorry NASA.
Written In The Stars: Constellations, Facts, and Folklore For The Armchair Astronomer by Alison Davies
Written In The Stars is a must-have for any astrologer hoping to learn more about their sign. What makes this one of the best astrology books out there is the angle that it takes. While a lot of astrology books look at the zodiac from the perspective of personality traits and characteristics, this book looks at the history behind them.
It’s filled with beautiful illustrations of the constellations behind each astrological sign, including where you may be able to find them in the sky. This book will remind you to look up a little bit more, and understand what you’re looking for. After all, each zodiac sign really is based on traditional mythology and constellations.
The Mixology of Astrology: Cosmic Cocktail Recipes For Every Sign
Learning about your astrological sign is fascinating, and gives you a lot of specific insight into your personality. If you want to apply that knowledge to the real world, this is the perfect book for you!
In The Mixology of Astrology, the writers came up with a variety of cocktail recipes specifically for each of the twelve zodiac signs. Taking the personality traits of the sign into account, the mixologist creates drinks that are sure to please.
Libras, for example, would love a French 75 that is perfectly balanced with champagne, gin, lemon, and a little simple syrup. It’s the perfect representation of who they are as people.
You can even use this book to throw an amazing cocktail party for all of your astrologically interested friends. Make up a few of the cocktails, and let your friends guess which astrological sign it pertains to! It’s like a murder mystery party without all the costumes and planning.
Your Astrological Cookbook: The Perfect Recipe For Every Sign
If alcohol is not your thing, or if you’ve made the choice not to drink, there are options for you too! Check out Your Astrological Cookbook for ways to help incorporate your astrological sign into breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
In this cookbook, similar to The Mixology of Astrology, the writers take the unique personality quirks of each sign into consideration. They then create a variety of different recipes that each sign can enjoy. From indulgent pasta meant for the Taurus, or spicy dishes designed to please the Aquarius, it’s fascinating to see the many ways that food can change your life.
These aren’t just your run-of-the-mill cookbook recipes either. If you’re someone who has a love for the culinary arts, you’ll find recipes that will be able to inspire you and impress your friends and family members. Fig, prosciutto, and brie bruschetta or chickpeas in potato-onion curry are great examples. You won’t be let down!
The Stars Within You: A Modern Guide To Astrology by Juliana McCarthy
This book is great If you’re the type of person who tends to be philosophical about things, and you enjoy spending time deep in thought. This book really looks at things from a more contemporary angle, and it was written by an experienced astrologer and energy healer.
Instead of staying on the surface or sticking with personality traits, The Star Within You looks at things from an existential angle. It starts with the fundamentals behind astrology and tries to view them from a fresh angle with new eyes. Using that knowledge, the author helps people to look at their own natal chart with fresh eyes as well. This deeper level of understanding and self-awareness is enough to trigger a revolution inside yourself. Real change comes from within, and this book can be just the spark you need to set it off.
