About the Author
Steven Forrest is the author of several astrological bestsellers, including THE INNER SKY, THE CHANGING SKY, THE BOOK OF PLUTO, THE NIGHT SPEAKS, and the new classic YESTERDAY’S SKY, written with support from a grant by the Integrative Medicine Foundation. Steven’s work has been translated into a dozen languages, most recently Chinese and Italian. He travels worldwide to speak and teach his brand of choice-centered “evolutionary” astrology – astrology which integrates free will, grounded humanistic psychology, and ancient metaphysics. Along with his busy private practice, he maintains active astrological apprenticeship programs in California, Australia, North Carolina, and Switzerland. He is a founding member of the Ethics Committee of the International Society for Astrological Research (ISAR). The musician Sting calls Steven’s work “as intelligent and cogent as it is poetic.” DELL HOROSCOPE describes him as “not only a premier astrologer but also a wise man.” Callie Khouri, who wrote the screenplay for the mega-hit film Thelma and Louise, praises his “humor, insight, poetry, and astute, articulate observations of human nature.” O: THE OPRAH MAGAZINE describes his philosophy this way: “Forrest’s approach...stops the blame game in its tracks...we’re warriors fulfilling our turbulent evolutionary paths.” Actor Robert Downey Jr. says, “I marvel at the accuracy of Steve’s readings. He insists that nothing is so grave as to be beyond repair, and correspondingly that there is no rainbow that won’t be evaporated by poor judgment in the now. I can’t recommend him highly enough.” And Rob Brezsny, in his popular “Real Astrology” column, simply calls him “the most brilliant astrologer alive.” After forty years in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Steve now lives in Borrego Springs, California.
