Gay Star Signs is a one-of-a-kind approach to astrology. All of its pages are split horizontally. Characteristics - like personality, body care, lifestyle, and career - of the 12 sun-signs are given on split-pages that are divided by color-coded strips with symbols. The top half of the split page represents the sun sign; the bottom tells readers what to expect from a particular sign in different areas of their life. The split pages allow readers to check their compatibility with friends, workmates - and, of course, lovers and partners, by comparing information on the top of the page with a quick flip to the corresponding flap below-thereby revealing their compatibility and highlighting the strongest and weakest connections."
