1st; study the modernist works of Margaret Hone, Charles Carter & Manly Hall
Then, once these are fully digested and practically tried, begin the study of
-Manilius Astronomica, then
-Valens Anthology, then
-works of Paulus Alexandrianus, then move to the Arabic authors:
-Abu Mashars Great introduction to the science & judgement of the stars, then
-work of Ibn Arabi, and finally
-work of Abraham Ibn Ezra

With such a study you will have what I believe is the best of the modernist and the best of the western traditional astrological teachings and techniques-then make your own synthesis, test all practically, and forge your own well-educated approach to our great Art.

I recommend commencing with the foundational texts

begin the study of
-Valens Anthology, then
-Manilius Astronomica, then
-works of Paulus Alexandrianus, then move to the Arabic authors:
-Abu Mashars Great introduction to the science & judgement of the stars, then
-work of Ibn Arabi, and finally
-work of Abraham Ibn Ezra


and then continue with any other methodologies
including Vedic :smile:
