Hello everyone!

I was planning on writing this tomorrow, but since it was highly recommended to do it asap (and I've already made a post in 'read my chart'), I felt like I needed to do this asap then as well.

I really don't know where to start though. But my interest for astrology started since I was really young, probably around 10 years old, finding an astrology book of my mother lying around. I didn't understand too much of it until a few years later, when I was really then upset with the fact that I am a Scorpio. Really silly when I look at it now, since I very much enjoy that placement (even if I am a supposed Venus/Libra dominant), it is still a part of my chart and what I am and what I feel I am. The reason I got very much into astrology lately was because I was going through a bad break up. It turned my world upside down, and changed me in a lot of ways, to which I am, in the end, very thankful. I started paying attention more to myself and how my whole being works, from my outer appearance to my feelings, thoughts and instincts. It helped me realize many things about myself, my hopes and dreams and goals for the future. And all in all, it was really fun to go through a self-discovery kind of trip that I had with astrology these past few months.

Here I am searching for more insight and understanding from people who are better or more experienced in this art than myself. And even if I mostly see my chart as very positive and I am very happy with it (for whatever I read it as), I am still looking forward to receiving any of you guys' help and maybe I can help out too!

I hope I made some sense, and thank you for reading!

Hi! Welcome. I am new here as well. I am not so new to astrology. I have been following it since I was a teenager and I've since been intrigued by it. However, I don't know everything I wish I could. I want to learn more about it. I find that asking questions here helps a lot.

I like how you express your discovery and journey. I think in a lot of ways, Scorpio is the sign of survival and transformation. That's what your journey sounded like to me when I read it. I think astrology has affected me in that similar way. I think relational astrology has always interested me because how I relate to others has always changed me.
