How good to find a busy, active forum!

Hi folks,

I'm a 70 year old woman who has been a serious student of astrology since my 20s, though I was aware of it even as a young child. I started out reading Isobel Hickey, and over the years I have read many of the classics, often numerous times. There is always something new that comes out of each reading. The authors who have most influenced my thinking are Donna Cunningham, Stephen Arroyo, Steven Forrest, Jan Spiller, and for a much needed dose of solid traditional astrology, Anthony Louis.

I have a Pisces Moon and learned early on only to read for other people when I had a strong impression that I should do it. I'm pretty good at it, when it is right for me to read. When it comes to reading my own chart, like so many of us, it amazes me how blind I can be to what is really there.

Over the years I've had some memorable encounters with some very good and, occasionally, well-known astrologers, most of them were very informative. One, which was accurate, was also an apt demonstration of how astrological knowledge shared in a spirit of pride without compassion can be very harmful. If you see very difficult transits in someone's future, do what you can to hep them understand what positive lessons they can learn from them.

I find that after all these years of steeping my consciousness in astrological imagery and insight it greatly helps me make sense of the world, and keeps me aware that everyone I meet is here living out a different set of challenges.

As I go through my later years, like many of us, I am coming to appreciate the extent to which the Lunar Nodes describe the life journey, though like the person who wrote the essay on this site, I had also come to the realization that it is the challenge of finding the balance between the two nodes, not the journey from one to the other, that may be what is going on. If I were given just one chart point to analyze, when meeting a stranger, I would ask to read the house and sign placement of the South Node.

I look forward to reading more of the posts here. What I have already read has been impressive.

Hi Snuffy welcome


members are given the designation "Senior Member"
after posting a certain number of comments
not that many

keep in mind that
because 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 like yourself
with little or no experience
keen to learn by practice
members are encouraged to discuss interpreting their own charts to learn by practice
we also have members with many years of astrological study completed
members have day jobs
and those of our members who are professionals
do not provide a complete professional reading for free

some navigation tips:


all are welcome - whether a TRADITIONAL astrologer or a MODERNIST astrologer
and
our forum hosts BOTH perspectives ON SEPARATE BOARDS

i.e.
our MODERN BOARD completely excludes traditional astrological comment
and
our TRADITIONAL BOARD completely excludes Modernist astrological comment

i.e.
We have a modernist board AS WELL AS a traditional board
and then
the rest of our forum is composed of GENERAL ASTROLOGY THREADS

i.e.
whether a member is using Vedic astrology
Chinese astrology, Western Sidereal Astrology, Modernist Astrology Traditional Astrology
ALL perspectives are welcomed on our General Astrology board threads
and any member
may comment on our GENERAL ASTROLOGY BOARD using ANY astrological methodology

our HELP WITH FORUMS AND SUGGESTIONS board is at
https://www.astrologyweekly.com/foru...splay.php?f=22

to be clear then
our TRADITIONAL ASTROLOGY ONLY board
is at
http://www.astrologyweekly.com/forum...splay.php?f=92

For discussions on Traditional Astrology only.
Note: Typically, traditional astrology is defined as using techniques developed prior to 1700 by astrologers from the Hellenistic, Persian, Hebrew, and Renaissance eras.
Specifically it relies on Ptolemaic aspects sextile, trine, square, opposition and conjunction
and excludes modern planets Neptune, Uranus and Pluto
non-Ptolemaic aspects, as well as any asteroids.
The focus is less on what would be considered modern psychological chart interpretation
and more on prediction.
Members who wish to explore a combination of traditional and modern ideas
should feel free to start a new thread in an appropriate forum for further discussion.

our MODERNIST ASTROLOGY ONLY board
is at https://www.astrologyweekly.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=95
For discussions on Modern Astrology only.
Note: Typically, modern astrology is defined as using techniques developed around the late 1800s by Theosophists.
Specifically it relies on psychological, evolutionary, karmic, and non-western interpretation approaches
and includes Neptune, Uranus and Pluto
and non-Ptolemaic aspects.
The focus is more on psychological chart interpretation instead of prediction.
