#itself with fairy #with fairy canon knows that fiery courageous heroines are a staple of folklore the Goose Girl Kate Crackernuts the woman who saved the Sleeping Prince Marjorie in The Juniper Tree But I guess they re simply astrologically Tono Bungay uninitiated for failing to realize their true nature as dainty gentle women who need princes to rescue them The Aries ManPisces Woman section is the worst offender in the Aries chapter I will notote it here because so much is wrong with it that I cannot possibly decide where to begin Goodman herself acknowledges its perverseness In Goodman s world there is one ideal relationship gender conforming man with gender conforming woman The closer one adheres to this Platonic form the attuned to nature one isFor further evidence of this misguided notion see the penultimate paragraph of the Leo WomanLeo Man sectionAccording to Shakespeare himself *Goodman claims earlier in this section to have made contact with Shakespeare s ghost after Petruchio *claims earlier in this section to have made contact with Shakespeare s ghost after Petruchio succeeded in taming Kate the Lioness with her Moon in Aries or vice versa same thing into a gentle submissive mate who properly admired appreciated respected and obeyed him he allowed her to accept a part time job illuminating old books and manuscripts a delicate and rare art Later after she d passed that test without returning to her old domineering ways he permitted her to design jewels for the ladies of Padua as a full time career Eventually she became Magical Sweet Mermaid uite famous and succeesful which fretted her lover husband not a whiffle or a trifle because you see she never disputed his masculine rights She always came happily skipping on the double when her Lord and Master regally commanded Come here and kiss me KateIn a Confucian sense she is correct Acuiescence in a s Maybe it s just me but I like this book and I think it likes me too But wait it can t just be me Ised to bring this around with me to classes and such letting others flip to the pages corresponding to their current relationship fixation and watching them intensely study whatever fate might be written there In most cases interested persons were already at least identified with their sun sign and so you might say that I m reviewing as and for biased parties but MAN Linda Goodman sure can pen down that flowery language for each sign as though she s been there before and it impresses all those I ve talked to In some cases I ve seen this book produce tears Without having to delve into the common issues with astrology I would just have to say that Goodman presents her interpretation of sign sign interaction thoroughly and provides an optimistic bent for the general pessimistic prophecies some combinations inevitably produce and is incredibly good at establishing an emotional connection across paper and ink barriers which is probably what you re looking for if you pick The Choice up this book yes it s dated and sexist but damn it s good scarily accurate.
