The Shakespeare and the Stars series celebrate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death and offer fresh and exciting insights into the ever-popular works of the world's greatest playwright. Each analysis specifically highlights Shakespeare's use of the archetypal language of astrological symbolism in both obvious and subtle ways. Such references would have been well known in Shakespeare's time, but their deeper significance is lost to modern-day playgoers and readers.

By keying each play to a specific zodiacal sign and its associated (or ruling) planet, Shakespeare alerted his audience to their significance in revealing character, foreshadowing the plot, and establishing key themes for each play.

Each book ranges widely, incorporating related and relevant information from astrological tradition, classical and Renaissance philosophy, Greek and Roman mythology, esoteric wisdom, modern psychology (especially that of C. G. Jung), and great literature. Modern readers will find that each book will illuminate its play from a fresh perspective that deepens and profoundly transforms one's understanding of these magnificent classics.

Each book is 64 pages and is designed to be taken to performances or studied before and after reading and enjoying the play.

Examining The Tempest, we will study its relation and characters to the Sign of Pisces and its (Traditional) Ruler Jupiter and (Modern) Ruler Neptune.
