I’m enjoying this book so far. :+1: I’ve read about a third of the way and it’s relatively easy, however it’s not an astrology book for absolute beginners.

Having studied astrology before I think I can understand almost everything so far. But I feel that the author doesn’t stop to explain some concepts like an “astrology for dummies” book would do. Also, there aren’t many illustrations or diagrams.

My advice is to print your birth chart and make sure you have it next to you as you read each chapter. It will make the learning process a million times easier!

I agree, it’s challenging for beginners like me. :grin:
I’m almost finished, but I think I’ll pull out my birthchart and print the notes from book as a follow up when I’m finished.
Thanks @Francisco !


Way to go @Susurrus !


Thank you @Rowan!


@Rowan That’s a good approach. I’m learning a lot mostly from checking each aspect alongside my chart. I also found useful seeing the celebrities’ chart examples the author provides with profile analysis. Looking at just my chart was becoming a bit predictable!

I read this part just last night! It’s a nice simple way to summarize the big three. I think I like this book for its simplicity.


It wasn’t hard for me to understand what they were talking about until they got to the Decans of the signs. I was lost through that, but I loved the simplicity of some of the others & how it was explained.

That quote has been stuck in my head since I read it. It made this so much easier to explain when my daughter & my friend asked me about their charts.


Friendly reminder time!
