"What seems to set Goodman's books apart from other stargazing guides is Linda Goodman's Sun Signs, Linda Goodman's Star Signs, Linda Goodman '$. LINDA GOODMAN'S SUN SIGNS: How to Really Know Your Husband, Wife Wife Lover, Child, Boss Employee, Yourself Through Astrology pdf feel that a book about Sun signs is a generalization comparable to lumping. It was the publication of Linda Goodman's Sun Signs that changed that forever. The book's simple organizational technique made it easy for everyone to.
Her father's name was Robert Stratton Kemery. Her mother's maiden name was Mazie McBee. By her own account, she was born in her maternal grandparents' house on Kingwood Street.
She attended and graduated from Parkersburg High School in aged 18 years. Each show consisted of Linda reading letters written between soldiers and their loved ones. Each letter was punctuated with a popular song of the day. While working in radio, she met her second husband, Sam O. Goodman, and took his last name. She began her career writing for newspapers in the eastern and southeastern United States.
She also wrote speeches for black American civil rights leader Whitney Young , who served for several years as president of the National Urban League.
It is also a thinly veiled autobiography , which explores two of her significant romantic relationships: her marriage to William Snyder and her love affair with marine biologist Robert Brewer. It's the oddest thing, but a small lion sitting on his throne-I mean in his high chair-covered with prune juice and egg yolk, and needing a change of diapers, will somehow manage to keep his dignity intact.
It comes naturally to a Leo baby to allow doting parents and admir-, ing friends to pay homage to him, while he graciously accepts their attention, gifts, and nattering tributes. He finds adoration very easy to take. Notice the pleased, smug look on his face when strangers stop to make a fuss over him.
Your Leo child will be more reckless than the average youngster, take more chances and be more active. Then will come those periodic spells of leonine laziness, when he'll lie around the house too tired to lift a finger, except to motion for you to wait on him. Leave him alone and make him understand no one is his servant. If he wants something, he can get it himself when his energy returns. Otherwise, a spoiled Leo child can become a regular tyrant. Now and then, of course, it doesn't hurt to bring him a book, hand him a glass of chocolate milk or otherwise perform a friendly favor.
But a little such submission to the lion's whims is plenty, unless you have a secret urge to be a lady-in-waiting or a prince's equerry. Leo youngsters who have been trained that they must respect the rights of others if they are to be respected themselves can be lots of fun to live with.
They're as playful and affectionate as those adorable little cubs you see at the zoo, and like the cubs, they need strict and loving discipline. The warm kiss and the tough birch rod will both have to be employed frequently by lion tamers.
Either one without the other is always ineffective and dangerous. There arc two kinds of Leo boys and girls. The first kind are the extroverts, gay, cheerful, outgoing, warm and generous, if a bit pushy at times. The others are quieter, almost timid on the surface.
Such outwardly bashful little lions may have suffered a serious blow to their vanity from domineering parents or from too much attention being paid to brothers and sisters.
Secretly, they need power and applause as much as the others. The danger in such situations, if they're prolonged, is that the Leo child will either get the attention he seeks later in life by forcing issues at the wrong time with the wrong people, or retreat into painful shyness and destructive frustration.
Leo ego, unnaturally bottled up for long periods, is most unhealthy. As youngsters, Leo boys may like to play with soldiers and enjoy games of challenge with a strong element of chance. The little female Leo will be ladylike, if strong-willed, may enjoy nice clothes and being told she's pretty, and will probably like being given responsibilities around the house. An occasional Leo girl is a tomboy, but vanity will eventually win out, and the phase passes. Don't expect these youngsters to enjoy taking out the garbage or clearing the floors.
They will rebel against menial tasks, so assign them more important and dignified duties that give them a sense of authority.
Teachers can expect the Leo students to do a little instructing of their own. They love to explain things to others, and nothing delights them more than playing the role of substitute instructor when the teacher has to leave the room.
It puts them in the spotlight. Normally, the Leo child left in charge at school will administer discipline happily, but now and then his playful spirit will come forth, and the teacher can return to find a three-ring circus in progress. Young Leos can leam fast when they want to. They're intelligent, and are often richly rewarding to the patient teacher, but they have a tendency to be a little lazy about learning.
They prefer to slide by on sunny personality and ingratiating charm. Teachers can be a little sun blinded by their smiles and compliments, and it's not unusual for little cubs to get better grades than they deserve. They may have to be forced to develop good study habits. On second thought, forcing is a waste of time. The easiest way to raise the grades of a Leo child is to appeal to his vanity, to make him want to be superior to the others. That will usually turn the trick.
When he's good, pat him on the back so he really feels it. Light taps won't do. No matter how many compliments he gets, he's always hungry for more.
These children will probably require more spending money than their more frugal friends. Your Leo child may give away most of his spare nickels, but he won't short-change himself, either. It's a good idea to teach him the rule the Rockefeller children were taught about finances: "Give some, spend some, save some.
Expect a turbulent adolescence, because your Leo child will be up and down emotionally a hundred times a day. Both his friendship and his romances will be terribly dramatic, and full of colorful ecstasy and heartbreak. All Leo children love to go to parties. Give them plenty of freedom, or they'll simply take it. Harsh orders destroy their pride and dignity. If you build the courage and flatter the ego of your young Leo by telling him sincerely you know he can do it, he'll proudly be strong for you.
It's never an easy task to raise an August child. There will be moments when you feel your caged lion will never be tamed. But he can be, if you remember that he needs gentle and continuous discipline-and love and affection are the two magic keys that unlock his golden heart.
It's not the lions who were adored as children who grow up into unhappy adults. It's the little cubs who were emotionally starved and neglected.
Remember that he'll pretend to be very brave, but secretly fears he isn't. Hug him tightly every night and love him with all your heart. The LEO Boss "Now don't interrupt me, I'm going to tell you all your faults It puzzled her very much at first But after watching it a minute or two She made it out to be a grin.
You have a Leo boss and you've worked for him for over a year? You must be a very good listener. Your Leo boss will probably feel that corporate taxes, government regulations and union rules were all invented as a personal conspiracy against him, but he'll dispose of them easily. Most lions are excellent organizers and perfect geniuses at delegating authority. His way of implementing such annoying situations is to turn to you and dictate, with great nourish, some resounding phrases on the general subject, then wave his hand regally, and with a gorgeous smile say vaguely, "You take it from there.
They prefer to paint the picture in bold strokes and let you worry about bothersome trifles like figures and statistics. The classic example of a Leo boss is one I know who called in his secretary to dictate an answer he had prepared for an especially important client.
Got that? You fill in all the other stuff. It was. The secretary was a Virgo. After reading it with solemn approval, the Leo reached for the phone and quoted the letter to an associate. His words floated through the office door to the long-suffering secretary. Of course, I've always had a way of expressing myself.
My wife is always telling me I should be a writer," he finished modestly.
This may be a somewhat extreme case, but you will find echoes of such an attitude lingering in the air if you have a typical Leo boss. Give him all your original ideas. He'll love you for it. August-born executives tend to favor employees who add creative thinking to the firm. However, be prepared to see him grinning like a Cheshire Cat the next day as he proceeds to organize the plan you gave him the night before, tossing out the startling comment, "It's one of the best ideas I ever had.
Of course, you triggered his imagination, which is why you're so valuable to him. But it was his idea.
Remember that. Now and then your Leo boss may seem a tiny bit ungrateful. Like he'll toss a huge stack of letters on your desk because he can't be bothered or bored reading them himself.
Then the next morning, when you're bleary-eyed from staying until midnight to finish the extra work he threw at you, hell shake his lion's mane disapprovingly, and mumble a comment on the sloppy condition of your desk, as he walks to his own plush lair. Oh, yes, he's almost sure to have a luxurious private office. It may have soft. Even if the budget is small, you'll seldom find him surrounded by pineapple crates and dingy window panes with no draperies.
The walls may be covered with excellent prints of good paintings or photos of himself, taken with important dignitaries. Any awards or certificates he's earned will be neatly framed, and hung in a prominent spot. Another Leo boss I know had an assistant who worked overtime every night and all day on Saturdays and Sundays for three months on a special promotion.
Linda Goodman's Sun signs
She also managed to move filing cabinets, pack huge boxes of merchandise and change the bottles in the water cooler every other day. Meanwhile, she found time to do her boss's Christmas shopping and pick up his cleaning once a week.
One bright, sunny morning she overheard him singing her praises to a vice president of the firm. The girl is really fantastic. Of course, she's a little bit lazy, but you can't expect to find everything in one person. I should say not. Why should she let a little thing like that bother her? She's a smart girl, who knows that anyone's efforts seem drab when they're compared to her boss's fabulous vitality in between his daily beauty naps on the velvet chaise lounge in his private office.
Why should she leave a boss who never fails to admire her new dress? She would hardly hand in her resignation to a man who presented her with a topaz bracelet for her birthday, a set of Waterford crystal for her hope chest, and who so sweetly understood that the color of her typewriter made her nervous. He even painted it bright yellow for her, though he was a little sloppy, and some of the paint dripped on the keys. It came off on her fingers for weeks afterwards, but she didn't mind, because it was a pleasure to wash her hands every hour with the scented soap he keeps in the washroom.
Her Leo boss helped her father find a new job, paid her mother's hospital bill, and generously gave in to her requests to hire her cousin in the mail room.
Besides, she's proud of his reputation in his profession. He won two awards last year; he's dictating a book to her about his life; he's listed at the top of the best dressed men in Esquire; he's deeply in love with his wife, adores his children, and has caused the firm's profits to go sky high, in spite of those wild chances he took a couple of times. He seldom notices if she takes extra time at lunch.
Last week, he found her a larger apartment with lower rent and scolded her fiance because he wasn't treating her right. What do you mean, quit?
If you're a man who works for a Leo executive, you have some special problems. Be original, daring, creative, and hard working. But remember that he will always be more original, daring, creative and hard working than you -Tn his eyes.
Say "Yes" to most of his brainstorms and he'll Have quite a pack of them in the course of a week. If you must say "No," precede it with a huge compliment and close it with another one. Sandwiched in between that kind of appreciation, he might accept it. But be tactful and proceed carefully. Even the gentler, less showy Leo executives normally like to spread sunshine, and have oodles of delightful charm. When your leonine boss gets every last ounce of credit he deserves, plus an extra helping of respect for good measure, he'll make you glow with his praise of a job well done.
He'll never be stingy with compliments. He won't hold back his disapproval either. The lion is apt to point out your mistakes with very little discretion. Employees with ultra sensitive natures would be happier working elsewhere. So would those with large egos of their own. There's more than a trace of arrogance in your Leo employer, but it's probably tempered with good-natured optimism. He'll keep things humming and running smoothly.
Leos were born to command, with an enviable talent for assigning the right jobs to the right people and seeing that they're finished on time. Office intrigues will anger him. He simply can't stand people keeping secrets from him.
He must know everything that's going on.
Don't be annoyed if your Leo boss is a bit nosey about your private affairs or gives you lectures on how to run your personal life. It's really a stamp of royal approval. It means he likes you enough to want to protect you by giving you the advantage of his superior wisdom. Leo bosses can be very funny. They can have fearful rages, and then pout behind closed doors for hours when they think they've been insulted.
They melt under flattery despite themselves.
They dress well, eat well and sleep well. They're warm and generous to a fault, and if they get the respect they demand, they can turn failure into victory overnight with an awesome strength of character. The lion gets tremendous inner satisfaction from giving orders, and delivering lectures is something he's especially fond of doing. You may have the kind of Leo employer who hides his hunger for the spotlight under a quiet demeanor.
But the typical dignity, pride and vanity of the Sun sign is just as much a part of his basic nature as it is with the dramatic types. Any doubts? Try to puncture his ego in the smallest way; then stand back out of range. One Leo boss I had, who fell into the quiet pussycat category, used to call a special meeting of the entire staff in his office every Tuesday morning.
The ostensible reason was to improve working relationships, but the real motive behind those weekly sessions was that they were the shy Leo's big chance to deliver his thoughts to a captive audience.
Bless his heart, it was his moment on stage. When he's treated right, there's no one on earth who can be as lovable as the lion. What if he does seek admiration in huge doses to feed his insatiable vanity? Most of the time, he honestly deserves to be admired. He may plagiarize your ideas and rob you of credit now and then.
You may weary of listening to his condescending advice and of telling him how super he is. But no other boss would have let you keep the baby carriage right next to your desk that time you lost your sitter.
Of course, you would have preferred the time off to care for the infant at home. But the boss needed you at the office.
And after all, he's the baby's Godfather. The LEO Employee The sun was shining on the sea, Shining with all his might: He did his very best to make The billows smooth and bright-And this was odd, because it was The middle of the night. If your employee is a typical Leo, it will be almost im- possible to ignore him. If he's a quiet Leo, it wouldn't J be wise to ignore him. The more aggressive lion will force j you to appreciate his talents and recognize his value by simply telling you how wonderful he is.
The shy pussycat type will pout until you give him the same treatment. It adds up to the same thing. Don't ignore your Leo em-' ployees. Whether the lion roars from center stage or bides his time in the wings, he is proud. He is dignified. He knows his superiority and he doesn't want anyone to overlook it. If tribute isn't paid to their vanity, both types of lions will find another savannah to honor with their presence.
They can't bear to be underestimated. All Leos love titles. The bigger and fancier, the better. He'll be too busy brooding over the increased status of his co-worker, who couldn't possibly deserve such a promotion as much as he does, of course.
It's not perversity that causes him to insist on his rights. He was born to be the master of all he surveys. Leadership is an inherent part of his nature and impossible to root out completely.
Leo is fully equipped to take charge. He feels useless and helpless, as well as unwanted, when he's not assuming some kind of obligation. If there's nothing else available to build his sense of importance, hell get it by handing out free advice to his friends and family. Strangers won't be neglected, either. Leo scatters his pearls of wisdom impartially. He'll tell you how much you should pay for having an extra room built over your garage, counsel your secretary about her alimony problems, inform the cleaning woman what kind of ointment to use on her sore toe, and explain to the mailman how he could make his deliveries more efficiently.
The less important he is on the job, the more seriously he'll practice his counseling service, I know one Leo man the quiet type who worked for a large company. For years, his family had the vague impression that he was the district sales manager. She also wrote speeches for black American civil rights leader Whitney Young , who served for several years as president of the National Urban League.

The book surveys her ideas on reincarnation , karma , love , and miracles. Personal life[ edit ] Goodman was mother to four children: Sally and William Bill Snyder from her first marriage, and Jill and Michael Goodman from her second marriage. She also had at least one other child, a daughter who died in infancy. Daughter[ edit ] Goodman's books also reference what she referred to as the "disappearance" of her eldest daughter, Sally Snyder in the s, and the mystery around her reported death.
Linda Goodman spent much money and many years trying to find Sally, long after police closed the case as a suicide or accidental suicide. Goodman never accepted the official police report and continued to search for Sally for the rest of her own life. Linda made Cripple Creek, Colorado , her home during the latter part of her life. She first lived in a small Victorian house on Carr Street "the little crooked house on the crooked little street" and later moved to a newer home on the outskirts of the main town.
Both homes still boast her spiritually themed stained-glass windows.A Leo female can appear to be as smooth and calm as a cool and placid lake. He's not at all bashful about his displeasure, either.
She popularized astrology with the publication of her book Linda Goodman's Sun Signs in , which is the only astrology book to ever appear on The New York Times bestseller list. site Drive Cloud storage from site.
