New Here! Gemini!

I have been teaching myself astrology for a few weeks now. I'm starting to attempt to understand what the numbers in each degree means and understand the aspects better.

How long did it take you to learn astrology?

How did you learn?

I'm very interested in the psychiatric aspects of astrology, as well as how it relates to astronomy and science.

Re: New Here! Gemini!

sailormoon,

Welcome to the AW Forum! It took me quite awhile to learn astrology. Then, looking back at it, I realized I had approached it the wrong way. Using my new understanding of what I did wrong I created a website that uses keywords that makes learning the basics of astrological interpretation VERY easy. The link is below my signature.

Learning all the time,

Tim

Welcome to this forum, sailormoon!
It takes a long time to learn astrology and you have to begin with the basics.

What I did first is make cards, one for each sign, with the signs on the front and their meanings on the back. Then I did the same with the planets, and then the houses. Then I spent a lot of time learning about each one. When you grasp the meanings of the signs, planets and houses, get them memorized, then you can start thinking about different signs on a planet, planets in different houses and so on.
At the same time, and before I knew anything, with permission I cast a chart for everyone I knew and met. And then I paid attention to them and looked at their chart.

I think I learned as much from one approach as the other, but neither stands alone. You have to do both! And happily, the learning never ends .
I am wishing you great fun learning astrology. It's very interesting.

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

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.
