Every child is an individual. But since it is your job to aid in their development, how can you know where they need extra help and where they need to be challenged? Astrology & Your Child (a revised edition of Optimum Child) by Gloria Star gives you the information you need to understand your child and guide him or her to reach full potential.

Star has been an astrologer for over twenty years, but you don't have to be an expert to use this book. Her years of experience allow her to present an understandable introduction to astrology. Then you will learn how to use this information to help your child grow, develop, and become a secure, self-empowered adult.

With astrology you will learn your child's strengths and weaknesses. This information, available to you from the moment of birth, will let you finally understand why your child behaves as he or she does. Then you can determine in which areas your child will need support and in which areas he or she will need to be challenged. If you need help in deciding what to do, Star makes many suggestions that can help you.

So just how specific can this book get? Very.

What types of food will a child like? Venus will tell you. Is your child depressed or lacking in emotional expressiveness? A moon in Aquarius can give you a clue. If your child has the moon in trine aspect to Pluto, the child is likely to be emotionally resilient. If Venus aspects Uranus, your child may need unconditional acceptance.

This book is the key to helping your child grow and mature in a healthy way. It will also help you better understand how you related with your parents and let you overcome old angers. It's a must for everyone.
