Synopses & Reviews
In this wickedly funny guide, professional astrologer Hazel Dixon-Cooper casts off sugar-coated astrology in favor of exploring the maladjusted side of the universe.
If you want the inside scoop, the real deal, the lowdown on each sun sign, then look no further.
It's time to forget those traditional astrology books where Sagittarians are gregarious, Capricorns are ambitious, and Pisceans are dreamers. Instead, enter a world where Archers are loud-mouthed bores, Goats are pompous social climbers, and Fish are chronically helpless. Dixon-Cooper debunks the myths, reveals the flaws, and examines the dubious virtues of each sun sign. Discover how to use your own inner brat to outwit bullies, outmaneuver manipulators, and win those endless games that lovers play. Learn how to deal with those dysfunctional people you encounter every day, including how to:
-contain a Ram's oversized ego
-calm a raging Bull
-keep a fickle Twin faithful
Irreverent, biting, and laugh-out-loud funny, Born on a Rotten Day exaggerates the bad, exorcises the good, and puts a new spin on the age-old question -- what's your sign?
Suzanne White novelist and creator of The New Astrology Dixon-Cooper reveals what every astrologer knows but none has ever dared say. Born on a Rotten Day takes us on a seriously humorous ride through the land of truth and consequences. I highly recommend it to anyone who has chosen to go on living and prefers to do so intelligently.

Provides guidelines for individuals born under inauspicious astrological circumstances, explaining how to cope with the dark side of the zodiac, romantic pitfalls, workplace traps, and other dysfunctional challenges.
Dixon-Cooper takes a daringly different approach to astrology, exposing the flaws hidden behind the glowing descriptions found in most astrology books. She provides refreshingly jaundiced profiles of each sign and offers handy hints for dealing with other people's (and one's own) dysfunctions.
