Compelled to learn EVERYTHING about astrology!!!

Hello everybody! I've been studying astrology on my own for a little over 5 years now. The amount I've learned is exponential but I know there's still a ton I don't know. I believe in astrology wholeheartedly and I know from the very core of my being it is far more than just a pseudo science like a lot of people believe. I registered with AstrologyWeekly.com because I feel compelled to learn EVERYTHING there is to know about astrology. Here I can learn from those more advanced in their knowledge. I can teach those less advanced in their knowledge. And together we can learn and teach, like we should do everything else we do in this world. Together. Namaste -_-

There are five collections in this library.

  • 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

Re: Compelled to learn EVERYTHING about astrology!!!

Thank you very much for the links. All the learning I do is on my own, therefore I'm always a bit unsure of how accurate(or not) my information is. I've spent years compiling a list of bookmarked astrology websites that each offer certain features and sample reports for free. But I know I can't expext to get any complete astrology reading for free. Whether it be a natal chart, synastry chart, a composite chart(synastry and composite charts are 2 totally different types of charts, aren't they?) or another type of astrology reading, even the sample reports I got were pretty complicated, so it's understandable why it can't be offered for free. I'm a 32 year old stay at home mom on a fixed income and a personalized astrology reading of any kind can be pretty pricey. And just like anything else you get what you pay for, you know? Do you want a quack with little to no knowledge or experience that's just a charlatan who's in it for the cold hard cash. Or do you want a trained professional with knowledge and years of experience plus a refined intuition that only comes with years of exercising that intuition. An intuition I know all too well. Since childhood I've been intuitive but didn't really understand too much of what I was feeling until well into adulthood. My mid to late 20s probably. But with the firmer grasp I now have on my own intuition due to my personal studies of astrology and ALL things spiritual(although I do believe astrology has a LOT of physical basis as well) I know a seasoned astrology uses intuition as much as knowledge and training when giving a reading. Knowing this, it's obviously logical that a face to face personal reading will yield the best results. I was very surprised, that over the years as I learned to trust my intuition as well as arming myself with an ever increasing knowledge of astrology and horoscopes, upon meeting someone new, learning a few things about them and speaking with them for just a short amount of time I could guess their zodiac sign, much to their surprise and mine too at first. If not their sign I can at least guess their element, which narrows it down to 3. I don't ever expect to become a professional astrologer or to make a career out of astrology. The original purpose behind my studies, was just to gain a better understanding of myself, my family, my friends and the unique relationships I share with each of them individually. When I realized it was far from just quick, simple, cut and dried I become absolutely fascinated with the mind numbing complexity of astrology and how that complexity is responsible for weaving the uniquely complex personality of every person on this planet. In conclusion, I am BEYOND in LOVE with astrology and having a personalized astrology reading even if I had to pay for it would be great but being able to do that reading myself, for myself, for my family and friends and my individual relationships with each of them would be life altering. To be able to analyze each of their personalities and how they relate to me as well as each other and understand what "makes them tick" on that underlying subconscious primal level would be worth more than all the gold in the world. So I guess you could say my research into astrology is personal but personally I'm more than just a bit obsessive compulsive. So I refuse to leave any stone unturned. Sorry for the extremely lengthy tome. I've always been a chatterbox. Around every bend may you find Love, Joy, Happiness and Peace of mind, body and soul!
Namaste -_-
