Hey :)

Hi, everyone!

I'm Lily, 24, Libra sun. I've had an on-off relationship with astrology for years, but I recently got back into and decided to study astrology seriously. I'm still struggling with natal chart readings (particularly aspects), but I'm reading up more on astrology in order to improve. I figured I'd join this forum since I believe I can learn a lot here.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to meeting new friends here and discussing astrology (or even non-astrology related topics) with you all!

Hey hiFiliaVeneris welcome

an interesting discussion http://www.astrologyweekly.com/forum...d.php?t=112883

and another http://www.astrologyweekly.com/forum...ad.php?t=80531

Our GENERAL NATAL ASTROLOGY board
is for BOTH Modern AND Traditional discussion
as well as for BOTH Sidereal AND Tropical discussion
and is at
http://www.astrologyweekly.com/forum...isplay.php?f=7


we have a TRADITIONAL ASTROLOGY ONLY board
at
http://www.astrologyweekly.com/forum...splay.php?f=92

as well as a
MODERNIST ASTROLOGY ONLY board
discussion is at
http://www.astrologyweekly.com/forum...splay.php?f=95

CHAT board
http://www.astrologyweekly.com/forum...splay.php?f=13


keep in mind that ours is an astrological learning forum
where 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

these are instructions

There are five collections in this library.
  • The main collection contains links to books and magazines written in English that are directly related to 'traditional astrology' (from classical to modern times).
  • 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.
  • The Latin & Greek collection contains links to important works in older languages

Another good list of links to astrological works is available at

That's ok - good to be appreciated!
My signature includes a link to a free translation of Vettius Valens THE ANTHOLOGY
an Ancient Greek original text translated by Professor Riley of CSU

http://www.csus.edu/indiv/r/rileymt/...s%20entire.pdf
well worth gradual reading as it is the basis of astrological study


THE ANTHOLOGY by Vettius Valens is also available from
Robert Schmidt of Project Hindsight but at far greater expense
as it includes voluminous commentaries from Classics Scholar Robert Schmidt
