My favorite lesson in Astrology came from a Correspondence Course by an unfortunately forgotten Astrologer/Mathematician named Carl Payne Tobey. He taught Astrology as a science, and it was all mathematical. The course makes so much sense, and it's still interesting even though it was written in the 50's. His method is unique and almost no one else teaches what he knew. He rediscovered such things as the Secondary Ascendant, vital to the Secondary Chart.

He explains in his course how the signs work by describing them in terms of Individual/Family/Social Survival/Non-Survival(for some reason changed to the word "reform") Dynamic (Reactor/Guide). For example, Cancer is the Individual Survival Dynamic, across from it is Capricorn, the Individual Survival Dynamic Reactor. Many of his diagrams aren't included in this online version of the course, unfortunately.

Here is his course: http://www.bonniehill.net/pages.aux/astrology/tobey/index.html

If you're further interested in his other works, I highly recommend
