Books by Stefan Stenudd:
Capricorn Zodiac Sign - the Book
Astrological Meanings of the Star Sign
Here is a book completely devoted to the Zodiac sign Capricorn and what it means in astrology.
It is far from the only thing in your horoscope birth chart, but then again far from the least important ingredient. The sun is the most splendid heavenly body in the sky surrounding us, so its astrological influence is just as remarkable.
In this book you find all you want to know about Capricorn, its personality traits, compatibility with other signs, symbolism, archetype, health, sexuality, profession of choice, family life, and on and on. You are also introduced to the complete horoscope and how you can continue to explore what astrology says about the human condition and personal characteristics.
About the AuthorStefan Stenudd is a Swedish author who has written several books about astrology since the 1970's. He also writes about mythology, the Tarot, life energy concepts, ancient Greek cosmology, and Taoist philosophy. His fiction, too, deals with existential themes.

Preface of the BookIf the sun was in the Zodiac sign Capricorn, it is your sun sign (also called star sign) and this book is for you. Here, I present the typical traits and characteristics of the Capricorn sun sign, and what astrology has to say about its influence on your personality and life.
But astrology is much more than the sun sign. All the planets, all the twelve Zodiac signs, and many other things, are considered in the complete birth chart horoscope. The last part of this book goes through all that, albeit briefly.
But the sun is a mighty heavenly body with great influence on life on earth. So, astrology also considers it quite influential. Its position and aspects are considered very carefully in a birth chart reading. And it says a lot even on its own.
Although astrology has an origin hiding way back in antiquity, the comprised version of astrology based solely on the sun sign is quite new. It started in the 20th century, when daily newspapers wanted to entertain with horoscopes of sizes possible to handle on their pages. It was not always done very seriously, and still often isnít. So, the reputation of sun sign astrology is somewhat tainted.
But treated seriously, in accordance with astrological principles, sun sign astrology can be a rewarding study. It does say fundamental things about character, albeit in a generalized way, and it gives excellent clues to what lies behind astrology: a systematic use of symbols in a pattern that has something fundamental to say about how we humans relate to the world.
So, welcome to a look at the symbolism of the Zodiac through one of its twelve signs: Capricorn. You will see the patterns and you will grow accustomed to the symbolism. Hopefully, you will also get some insights about your own personality and its intricacies.
