Astrology in the Workplace

Reading the characteristics that our co-workers display and learning how to cooperate with them successfully lies at the heart of Astrology in the Workplace. Find out your colleagues’ signs of the Zodiac and you can turn their strengths and weaknesses to your benefit. With sections for each sign and a wealth of information on their best and worst traits, as well as guidance on the careers that offer each sign the best outlet for their distinctive personalities, Astrology in the Workplace will help anyone who wants to bring out the best in themselves and everyone else.

The Zodiac Cooks

The Zodiac Cooks is more than a cookery book. It brings the ancient world of astrology into the modern kitchen and gives you a whole new take on why you eat what you eat.

In 130 recipes and a host of tips on cooking, table decor and health, internationally renowned astrologer, Penny Thornton takes you on a gastronomic journey through the twelve signs of the zodiac.

Along the way, you’ll discover why Aries spends a fortune on knives; why feeding the mind is more vital to Gemini than three square meals a day; and the role tradition plays in the Capricorn home. You’ll understand why souffles collapse and which sign should never be given anything it can’t pronounce the name of. Starting with Aries and ending with Pisces you’ll find recipes tailormade for each sun sign.

Duck breast with prunes and chocolate? That’s a dish to set before a Scorpio. Liquorice icecream? Perfect for anise-loving Geminians and Virgoans. You’ll learn a few of their secrets, too: Why do Cancerians have a fondness for nursery foods? Why should Leo never leave out whole food groups? And is there a reason why dinner is never on time in a Pisces household?

It’s all to do with the stars

With Love From Diana

She heard in the Princess’s own words the shocking truth about the royal “marriage of the century,” and gained an intimate view of the royal family, which she shares here for the first time:
How the lunar eclipses of 1993 led Penny to see the final breakup of the marriage and the disastrous fire at Windsor Castle

The Forces Of Destiny

The Forces of Destiny can now be purchased as an e-book. Click here to read more.

The Forces of Destiny brings together three of the most fascinating mysteries of all time: fate, reincarnation, and astrology. In this highly original and illuminating book, Penny Thornton compares beliefs about fate, death and rebirth from a variety of esoteric traditions with the discoveries of the New Science, and the literature on the Near Death Experience. The evidence suggests that we absorb the very essence of the planets on our soul’s journey through the planetary spheres, and our horoscope reflects our accumulated karma or fate. By understanding the deeper meaning of this map, we can come to learn that fate is not blind, uncontrollable force but a process meted out by the soul itself.

Penny Thornton has come to believe that astrology is ‘spiritually arid’ without a framework of reincarnation and karma. However, this book points the way towards a regeneration through the meeting of astrology and phychotherapy. Through hypnosis, past-life material can be incorporated to reveal an even greater and deeper understanding of planetary patterns and symbols.

A New Kind of Loving for a New Age of Living

Divine Encounters

Divine Encounters is about union – ultimately the union with the self, or contacting the ‘god within’. Somewhere within each of us is a yearning to find the ‘other half’ who will make us complete. But no outer union can ever truly fulfil us unless we have become complete within ourselves.

More and more people are being presented with relationships that call upon them to find reserves they never knew they had. And this can be perceived on the collective level as well as the personal. On the one hand, there are some magnificent unions being forged between East and West, and on the other, the potential for a third world war has rarely been greater.

In this book, Penny Thornton explores the reasons for these powerful changes from a spiritual and astrological perspective. She sees it as a transition stage to the New Age. The book spans a wide and varied territory, from the prophecies for the end of the millenium to the way that individuals are being transformed, especially through relationships. These changes are both influenced by, and altering the perception of, the outer planets as agents of transformation.

Unless we undergo this transformation through opening our hearts and expanding our consciousness, we cannot enter fully into the New Age. This is essential not only on a personal level, but collectively – for the survival of humanity.
