gifts for astrology lovers

Since the gift giving season is upon us, I thought it would be fun to offer a few ideas of things to get the astrology lovers in your life, or to put on your own wish lists.

Calendars

LLewellyn's 2007 Astrological Calendar ~ the Llewellyn calendar provides daily astrological data and is always filled with beautiful images. It's the only calendar recommendation I have, really.

Books

There are so many possible books to suggest that I'll keep it simple by recommending a couple of classics and a couple from my own wish list.

Linda Goodman's Sun Signs and Linda Goodman's Love Signs ~ these are great books for people who are just starting to get into astrology and for those who are more advanced students (they'll need replacements for their dog-earred copies).

The next two books I haven't read, so proceed with caution. They look so intriguing, though:
Mythastrology: Exploring Planets & Pantheons ~ if you know someone who loves astrology and books like Women Who Run with the Wolves, I think this could be a good choice.

Buddhist Astrology: Chart Interpretation from a Buddhist Perspective ~ and this one could be good for someone who is exploring buddhism, as well as astrology.

Check out April's great list of astrology books for more ideas.

Fun

Astrological Greeting Cards ~ these cards are amazingly beautiful. There's also a coloring book based on the images on these cards.

Astrology Sampler ~ A cross stitch kit for the astro-crafty.

Feel free to add your suggestions in the comments below. Share your wish lists, too!

Astrology Sampler (by Witches Stitches) is a reallllllly nice piece to stitch! The picture just doesn't do it justice, it's far more stunning in person.
