Olivia's first book, Erotic Astrology (now out of print) was a primer on how women could seduce their ideal sun (or ascendant) sign male. In this, her second book, she concentrates on how to you can keep your man. While other books concentrate on the acutal messy details of astrological compatibility, forecasts (as of 2009) indicate that we are rapdily approaching a time when it won't make much difference who the guy or gal is, it's simply going to be important to have a lot of sex. For its own sake. Think of it as a return of the free love of the 1960's, only without the pleasant gloss of distant memory.
Think I'm mistaken? (When am I ever mistaken??) Consider this: The End of The World arrived in Iceland in the fall of 2008, when their entire economy collapsed overnight, taking their government with it. Icelanders (or, as some jokingly refer to them, "Nicelanders") have been in the streets every day since. And elsewhere. Nine months later, they're having a baby boom. The best economic forecasts that I've seen is that what hit Iceland in 2008 is about to hit the rest of the planet. Will you be prepared?
Not only that, but The Mayan Calendar Is Ending! The exact date is December 21, 2012. Already weighty books forecasting the results are on the bookshelves. One thing they agree on is that the New World of Love, Peace & Bliss that will shortly be upon us will be so wonderful that we will just have to get to know our fellow man - or woman - a bit better than before. OR that the resulting stresses & dislocations will result in lots of sex just for therapy's sake. It's not that one book is cheerful & the next book is isn't, but that the authors themselves are a bit confused.
Personally, having been burned too many times with the New Age crowd, I'm siding with the economic forecasters. At any rate, whichever of the two religions you eventually subscribe to, the net result seems to be a lot more babies, coming soon. And you, dear reader, may well be among the lucky new parents! The time to prepare yourself is NOW. Whether it's hyperinflation that wipes out all money, or Space Aliens with new & bizarre rules, the continued existence of stores, not to say publishers, is not guaranteed. Before that awful day when books can no longer be had, perhaps Olivia will grace us with a third book, How the Twelve Signs Change Diapers. After all, Doctor Spock's baby book is getting a bit long in the tooth.
In this book, each of the twelve signs gets about 20 pages. Sections are broken down into Sex and [the sign], Money and [the sign], Power and [the sign], and, finally, decanates, which are ten-day subdivisions of the monthly signs. Each of the first three sections are further subdivided, as appropriate to the individual sign in question. Under Aries, the sections are as follows:
Sex & Aries: Flirting with danger, "God, you're fabulous", Bed & bored, Who's at the controls?, Three is a crowd, When Aries sees red, and, Soul mates.
Money & Aries: Money is freedom, Money is control, Play now, pay later, Me first, Role playing, and, Selfish isn't sexy.
Power & Aries: Hell hath no fury, Selfish is not sexy [reprise!], The infernal triangle, and, The power of potential.
While admittedly limited in scope, Olivia's books, like those of Linda Goodman before her, give exceptional insights.
