Re: Novice. Wanting to learn more about Sidereal.
I don't actually know any good sources in which to learn more about sidereal, I'm just popping in to say that I relate a lot more to my sidereal chart than I do my tropical one, too ^_^
In tropical I am a Taurus Sun/Venus/Mercury with Libra Moon/Rising.
Which is a lovely combination, but it just doesn't suit me - despite how much a part of me wants it to. I always thought that being a dominant Taurus was odd for me. I'm loud, obnoxious, easily bored, and not content with country life. I'm not submissive, stubborn or well-grounded. I hate routine, and I'm not patient at all. In terms of communication, I'm usually blunt, to the point, and talkative... though only talkative usually if the conversation involves talking about myself and my opinions in some way, but still. In love I like the chase, and after it I get bored. This has happened several times. And I constantly find myself in desperate search of a job, so that I can use that money to do things all the time, and be a lot more active than I am right now.
Libra Rising? I'm too picky & snobby to be openly social. I'm not that bothered about being in a peaceful environment, and I'm perfectly fine on my own, thankyouverymuch.
After spending a few years avoiding sidereal astrology, I decided to give it a go, and before I knew it - it made so much sense. Not just for me, but for my family members and a few friends too. In sidereal I'm an Aries Sun/Mercury/Venus with Virgo Moon/Rising.
I dread to look at the sites and/or books that give detailed information on sidereal astrology - that's going to be some complex ****, right there.
