"A map that leads us back to our sacred selves." -Sandra Ingerman, MA, author of Medicine for the Earth and The Shaman's Toolkit

"A clear, accessible, up-to-date guide to the positions of the planets in the sky as well as to their resonances in our hearts and imaginations." -Diane Wolkstein, co-author of Inanna, Queen of Heaven and Earth

"The sky was our original calendar, our original storybook, the first illustrated edition, the prototype GPS. Beyond its pragmatic usefulness, the sky was the domain of spirit, traversed by deities and a place to which human souls departed. Let's re-enchant it, shall we?"–Renna Shesso

Impeccably researched by one of the most eclectic pagan scholars working today, this book aims to reengage our fascination with the planets and stars. Shesso looks at the mythology, legend, science and lore about the planets and most significant stars in a chapter-by-chapter format. Included are nearly 150 diagrams and illustrations—of the heavens, astrological views, depictions of gods and goddesses, sky totems, Tarot symbols, star charts, and more.

Anyone with even a vaguely pagan bent, anyone with a reverence for the natural world, who has ever marveled at the night sky will love this enchanted view of the planets and stars.
