self taught

Hello everyone,

I am beyond happy to be here. I am a self-taught "astrologer''- in the making, I would say. For the past few years, I have been an observer of astrology, starting out with my natal chart and those of my friends, as well as learning to read synastry and composite charts, initially by automatically created charts and later on, bumped into astro.com, where I started exploring things aspect by aspect and understand more about a 'holistic' reading and not focusing on one aspect. I still havent grasped the ability to read transits nor explored the horary yet, and I would like some help there.

My interest arose from a deep need to understand my- at the time -career misfortune and also to get some answers related to love in general and also try to gather some statistics about marriage/commitment aspects comparing my charts with several boyfriends (lol) and charts of committd people I knew Aaanywayzz, here I am, I have to say I feel utterly welcome with a sense of belonging, although noone spoke to me yet.

Oh btw, Im a pisces with leo ascendant. I will post my natal chart when I figure out how to do so

Nice meeting all of you and looking forward to continuing my journey with some company!!

Hello Curiousuniverse welcome

keep in mind that ours is an INFORMAL astrological learning forum
there are no structured classes
members practice astrological skills free
no one is paid
therefore
responses to threads
are often from members who are beginners with little or no experience
keen to learn by practice
we also have members with many years of astrological study completed
also
members have day jobs
and those of our members who are professionals
do not provide a complete professional reading for free
members who wish to do so are encouraged to discuss interpreting their own charts
to learn by practice

  • The extended collection refers to texts that are partly astrological or useful for historical research or philosophical principles.
  • The ancient collection contains links to ancient texts, fragments, or secondary sources that cover the ancient period.
  • The scholar's collection contains links to published theses, dissertations, and peer-reviewed papers.

Re: self taught

Oh wow Jupiter, thank you so much for guiding me in!! Quite a lot to learn still. I thought I was a novice, but when I read “traditional vs modern” astrology, I thought again.. more like baby astrologer 🧐
