Re: Hey Dudes

Thanks. I took Astrology for Dummies by Rae Orion and The Only Astrology Book You'll Ever Need by Joanna Martine Woolfolk out of my library.

I've only just started looking at them, when I wondered if there might be a place like this to talk on the internet. So I ended up here.

Re: Hey Dudes

Yes - there will be many opportunities for discussion and talk. Maybe start by checking out the "read my chart" sections - it's a great place to start and you can offer what you know or ask what you don't.

Good luck and enjoy

Re: Hey Dudes

For starting out in traditional astrology, I don't remember what books people recommend, but among them that I personally wanted to buy was "On the Heavenly Spheres" by Helena Avelar et al (http://www.amazon.com/On-Heavenly-Sp...NEM1DA0NM1ET13). Another book called "Introductions to Traditional Astrology" caught my attention while I was searching through google (http://www.bendykes.com/ita.php).

For starting out in horary astrology, William Lilly's work is a classic (Christian Astrology). Though, it may be a bit daunting to read his books from the get-go. Check out Christopher Warnock's site for some free material on Lilly: http://www.renaissanceastrology.com/lilly.html

Re: Recommend book

Thanks, Larxene. One of those books is out of my price range at $40. In any case, while I don't know a lot about astrology, I do know that traditional astrology doesn't use Uranus, Neptune, or Pluto, or any aspects beyond the multiples of 30, and doesn't use asteroids.

I've found some of the neatest stuff on-line regarding asteroids, and I just don't think I could give them up. But I hope someone else buys the interesting books you recommended.

Does anybody have any experience with the books by Martha Wescott? I saw a couple of them used at a local book at a price I can afford.
