The Internet connects you to a universe of gift ideas, made easier by sites that narrow the field for you, or offer suggestions based on Sun signs. Here are some suggestions for gifts that the astrology aficionado will smile over.
2. CalendarsEvery skywatcher needs a handy calendar with planetary aspects, annual retrogrades and the lunation cycle. Llewellyn publishes popular calendars, including the comprehensive Daily Planetary Guide, wall calendars and pocket guides. We'Moon publishes a calendar called Gaia Rhythms for Womyn, and appeals to those following the Goddess path.
There are many beginning astrology books out there to choose from, and books on specialized topics for those further along on the learning path. Linda Goodman's Sun Signs or Love Signs are still classics, but for a more current and cosmopolitan take on Sun signs, grab the titillating and densely packed bestseller Sextrology: The Astrology of Sex and the Sexes by Starsky & Cox. Those interested in American political trends and astrology will find Soul Sick Nation, by Jessica Murray, an engaging read from start to finish.
4. JournalsJournals can be a nice gift, and if your giftee is going through their Saturn return, seek one with that sign on the front. Or find a journal with Mercury (this involves some astro-investigation on your part), a place to record their life impressions.
5. WearablesZodiac jewelry and t-shirts don't have to be cheesy. Sites like CafePress and Squidoo give you lots of options to choose from, from old-school airbrush styles to cartoons, or more minimalist creations. And it's not just the Western Zodiac that's in style -- check out the cute Year of the Dog or Pig t-shirts, BBQ aprons and baby bibs.
6. Handmade Gifts
Sites like Etsy put hand-made gifts in reach, and there are many to choose from. Just punch in keywords like Zodiac or astrology, and you'll find original creations from individual sellers, like the hand-carved Zodiac table (in this photo) from Dragon Oak.
