What's Your Sign? A Cosmic Guide for Young Astrologers
by Madalyn Aslan,

What's Your Sign? A Cosmic Guide for Young Astrologers by Madalyn Aslan, illus. by Jennifer Kalis, provides the pertinent details on each astrological sign, explaining the history ("Libra was Themis, goddess of Justice"), lucky color, day of the week, etc. ("Opal... is lucky only for Libras") and personality associated with each (including the ideal sign for your "crush"). The sturdy, spiral-bound edition contains a pull-out poster and a zodiac spin wheel for fast fact-finding. Ages 8-up.

From School Library Journal
Grade 5-9-An old topic is entertainingly presented in a sturdy, spiral-bound package. Index tabs labeled with the 12 zodiac signs begin with Aries and end with Pisces. The 10 pages devoted to each sign describe the dates covered; features of that time of year; and the personality and social traits of the people born under that sign. Brief sections tell of the mythical characters represented by the astrological signs and their ruling planets. Each chapter concludes with a selection of famous people born under the sign and fictional and cartoon characters who exhibit its personality traits. A page sports a zodiac wheel with a window that can be turned to reveal each sign's color(s), day of the week, metal, precious stone, and element. Use of words such as "dissed" and "rent" give the text a more contemporary air than most treatments of the subject. Numerous funky cartoon illustrations and purple font add to the book's attractiveness.

Book Description
Wizard astrologer from the age of 7 Madalyn Aslan reveals how to be a wizard astrologer yourself, and how to divine the sun signs of pals, crushes -- even pets. Backpack Astrologer, Madalyn's special supplement for CosmoGIRL teens, sold 600,000 copies last year. Now, in What's Your Sign? even younger readers will enjoy unlocking secrets of the Zodiac.

Madalyn, once a child astrologer herself (she read Rock Hudson when she was only twelve) wrote this cosmic guide to help kids build their confidence and problem-solving skills, and to better understand themselves and those around them. She includes super-fun tips like, How To Spot a Gemini, Aries on the Playground, Leo Sibs, Aquarian 'rents, Your Pisces Cat, and Libra in Love. Cool facts about the planets and Greek-Roman myths co-exist with celeb-signs like Britney, the Olsen Twins, and Nancy Drew, true Taurus detective. She also quotes real-life kids' comments about their own signs.

What's Your Sign? is beautifully color-illustrated, and includes a spinner wheel on the back cover which uncovers each sign's basics, tabs down the side of the book to easily find each sun sign chapter, and a 14" x 18" fold-out poster of all the signs.

TAURUS
Your Special Time: April 20 - May 20
You are born when the land is most lush and green. Farmers plant their crops during Taurus. The Earth is strong, and the soil is ready to grow food. April 22 is Earth Day, when we celebrate the beauty of the Earth. And when we celebrate Taurus, a beautiful Earth sign!

GEMINI
Of All the Animals, You're Most Like . . .
A Pair of Twin Monkeys
Just like clever, playful monkeys, you are fun to watch and always entertaining. (Being a Gemini-a "twin"-means you have two distinct sides, so you are like two monkeys, not just one. That means twice the fun!) Monkeys play with and mimic the world around them. They are smart, responsive, and affectionate, descriptions that fit Gemini to a T. Not surprisingly, U.S. Census Bureau records show that more twins are born during the time of Gemini than at any other time of the year!

CANCER
Who Was Your Moon?
The Moon has always been related to the Mother. There are more births at the Full moon and the New moon than at any other time! Moon Goddess worship was the dominant religion throughout the world until 1500 B.C. She had many names. Diana, Hecate, and Artemis were just a few, and each had a different story. Even today many cultures, from Native American to orthodox Jew, base their year on lunar months, not solar months. Interestingly, it is the last Sunday in June when most couples get married-this is during Cancer, which is Moon-Birth-Time!

LEO
Day of the week: SUN-DAY, because the sun is your ruling star. This is an honored day of worship and rest in many societies. So schedule all the things you want to be lucky on Sundays.

VIRGO
In School
Your classmates ask you for the right answers. Your brain loves to chew on facts and information. But you can get obsessive and drive yourself too hard. So, whether it's sports or math or writing, take a break sometimes!

LIBRA
True Love
You idealize and dream about love nonstop. You have a million crushes, and they change pretty fast, but each one feels like it. You have a ton of admirers, but some might be too shy to talk to you. Best Love Matches: Gemini, Aquarius, Libra, and Leo. Sometimes Aries.

SCORPIO
How to Spot a Scorpio
If you put out your psychic antennae, you can spot a Scorpio instantly. It's their aura. They're alone, always alone, even when they're with a group of friends. They're thinking about something, but you can't tell what. And they won't give you a clue. They'll just keep thinking. (Their deep thoughtfulness is intriguing and mysterious, and you can bet you'll want to find out what it's all about. But it's never what you think it is!) Their faces look like beautiful masks, giving nothing away. They also have big liquid eyes, like Scorpios Julia Roberts and Meg Ryan.

SAGITTARIUS
Okay, So You're Not a Sagittarius . . .
But Your Crush Is
It's so easy to start a conversation with Sagittarians! They love to talk. Mention animals, or a new way-out idea, and you can't go wrong. Keep it casual. (Remember, they're the only sign who calls themselves by a zodiac nickname-"Sadge." Never Sagittarius! That's too pretentious-sounding for them.) If you make a date, count on them to break it at least once. Secret Tip: They forget all the time. Their personal song should be "Oops! I Did It Again" as fellow Sagittarius Britney Spears sings.

CAPRICORN
Okay, So You're Not a Capricorn . . . But Your Parent Is
This parent has great ambitions for you. Capricorn moms and dads plan out your life and express their love through worrying. It's so comforting to them! But remind them to run around and have fun with you, too. You can look forward to growing up with them, though; they loosen up a lot as they get older.
