Publisher's Summary

In ancient times, the study of the heavens and the study of the psyche comprised a single science - astrology - leading C. G. Jung to describe it as "the first form of psychology". In Making the Gods Work for You, you will learn how archetypal forces - symbolized as planets or gods - can help you create change in your life and in the world.

With wit and scholarship, Caroline Casey (a Brown University-trained semiotician and astrologer) reveals the mythical and magical dimensions of 10 planetary forces along with meditations and exercises for connecting with the larger forces of the universe. Here is a visionary view of the hidden connections between the heavens overhead and the "miniature cosmos" within each of us.

Accompanied by drumming and songs by Jacqui MacMillan and Amikaeyla Gaston.

Title is Off-Putting but Content is Excellent

Unique format in audiobooks. Listens like an in-person seminar with a stage and music. What a character Caroline is...so knowledgeable yet real and approachable. Deep wisdom is there. Many powerful nuggets in this listen. Highly recommend.

Simply the Best.

No matter how many books I read on astrology, or life for that matter, I always find myself coming back to this wonderful book. Caroline manages to wrap up everything, the astrological, the personal, the emotional, the political, and the spiritual into a delightful and coherent Adventure, with the planets as our guides.

Interesting but...

I was so annoyed by the chanting or music interspersed throughout, that it made my heart race and Disturbed my enjoyment of the book. The content was decent and I did appreciate the humor and the performance.

Incredible! Highly recommend!

This was entertaining, informative, thought-provoking, and moving. A positive message- in a time we need a reminder of the big picture. Not for victims, it’s for those who understand how powerful we really are. Too bad maximum stars are five; deserves a 20.

Funny witty and magical

I loved her witty tone of voice and speech,I caught myself laughing several times. It doesn’t really lead you how to apply it to you but it’s uniquely original in the way she interwovens orishas black gods and African mantras rather than the so mainstream Greeks and Hindus gods. I loved it. Music is spectacular

Excellent

A lovely, energetic, informative and understandable performance - great work. I love the way that Caroline gives relateable examples. Often linking oneself to astrology leads to the uninformed letting you know that you've lost the plot but the "rules" and stories are really helpful in "seeing" how relevant astrology is and can be.
