Another fab review for “Mirror Mirror”

Mirror Mirror

Getting a new book out there is so exciting. And a lovely review just stokes those fires of happiness. This review comes from Victor Smoot who is the editor of the ISAR Journal. You can buy your copy of “Mirror Mirror” going here:

“Researcher. That is what her bio says about Alex (check the end of her article “The Crown” in this issue). Her new book is about research into something she just loves – biographical films. ‘Research’ is such a serious word, and an arduous process, but one that ISAR values most highly. This research comes out of the fun of investigating what you love. 

The book is especially for those who love movies, celebrities, and comparing charts. This is creative research about creativity. I am personally passionate about those two: ‘creative research’ and ‘creativity.’ Researching the creators who act out the dreams and life narratives on the screen inspired by real, notable people is the goal and purpose of Alex’s new book, Mirror Mirror: The Astrology of Famous People and the Actors Who Portrayed Them

The aspects of comparison in Trenoweth’s study are basically but two: conjunct and opposition, using tight orbs. Other aspects come after for support, verification, and detail. Each example of a famous person’s chart, to the chart of the actor depicting them in their biopic, to the chart for the release of the film, make up the tri-wheels. Alex tells the core narratives that are necessary to blend her interpretive remarks. They are a starting point. They invite and leave room for much further analysis of the charts. 

The over 100 famous people and their biopics make up her ‘database’ of examples organized by planetary emphasis starting with Pluto, including Chiron and the Nodes. Other categories are those with more than one biopic, from the infamous Ted Bundy to Queen Elizabeth I, and a special list of Alex’s 18 favorite biopics of all. Seeing the qualities in the actor’s chart connecting to their subject’s life as a role is amazing. It is as though Astrology was a secret casting director. Secret no more.

This is a natural gift book for anyone who loves astrology and films, and yourself, too, of course. But don’t leave it on a shelf. Put it by your ‘spot’ on the couch, or on your night table. It is a good read in tasty bits, or whole hog. Significantly, it demonstrates that anything you enjoy, as Alex enjoys biopics, is a potential subject for astrological research. Do it with whatever you love. Put the beloved idea through an astrological research process. Now you’re having fun.”
