Everyone has seen the selection of "Sun Sign" books for the following year that start flooding the astrology section of stores around the end of summer. Some publishers sell a separate book for each sun sign, others sell a large single volume with information on all twelve sun signs. While sun signs help you broadly understand yourself, other people, and the major effects of the upcoming year, moon signs control the details: the best times to do everything from plant a garden to visit annoying relatives. Despite the usefulness of moon signs, you don't see many moon sign books on store shelves. Llewellyn's 2003 Moon Sign Book is one of the few you are likely to see in a mall bookstore.

The 2003 Moon Sign Book provides a lot of information. You'll be able to easily determine the most favorable days for many common activities from an easy-to-use table. Other easy-to-use tables cover gardening and weeding. However, far more complex tables are provided for those who need more information. Those who use Moon Void-of-Course information will be happy to know that complete information for 2003 is provided. Instructions for using these tables are clear -- but sometimes a bit complex, at least for the more advanced tables. The introduction to the volume admits as much and suggests carefully reading and working through the examples.

As one would expect, the 2003 Moon Sign Book provides month by month forecasts for each moon sign, written by astrologer and author Gloria Star. Unfortunately, if you don't already know your moon sign, determining it is one of the more complex procedures in the book. It isn't that hard, but it can be error-prone. New and full moons get charts and one page writeups. Astrologer Kris Brandt provides US Weather forecasts based on lunar information, while Dorothy Kovach provides an economic forecast for 2003.

In addition to all the above information one one expect in any good book on moon signs, the 2003 Moon Sign Book has a number of interesting articles such as "Moon's Sign is the Key to Understanding Child's Emotional Nature" by Gloria Star, "Healing Emotions in Troubled times" by David Pond, "Astrology Looks at a Changing World" by Alice DeVille, "The Real Dirt on Earth Signs" by Maggie Anderson, and many more. Like any anthology of articles, some are very interesting and some, well, aren't. However, this large collection of articles does make the book stand out from the many other books on the astrology shelf.

If you are interested in the effects of the Moon's travels through the Zodiac in 2003 or if you like to garden (or do other things) by the moon, this book is a handy guide -- and the articles are an interesting bonus. This book is also a bargain price-wise: over 450 pages for about eight US dollars.
