Horoscopes and natal charts just aren't enough anymore. If the planetary configurations show that you're a born s.o.b. -- lazy, untrustworthy, belligerent and mean -- help is just a love potion away. No reason to be resigned to the ""liabilities"" in those immutable stars. Lamer dips into his grab bag of the occult and comes up with any number of astrological aids: amulets and talismans -- but they'd better be the right ones (""unless it is made of the appropriate stone or metal, do not expect it to bring therapeutic results""), I Ching, ceremonial magic, yoga, music (each sign of the zodiac has its own keynotes) and color dynamics -- all of which can have a remedial effect on your failing business, love life or whatever. It's all quite complicated and we were not reassured by Larner's injunction that ""to benefit from astrology you must go on to a minimum of eighty steps. In time, you may even wish to go on to several hundred."" For true believers and cognoscenti only.
