Hello everyone,


I have just come across this group and registered, and am pleased by all the resources and discussion available here!


I studied astrology rather intensively many, many years ago -- I had quite an astro-library, and went through piles of large tablets drawing out charts, which I really enjoyed, as a method of focusing on the matter at hand. Unfortunately, after some years, I discovered that all along I had the wrong birth time on my natal chart (!), and became completely disenchanted. I moved on to other interests, and eventually gave away my library to a friend, who was thrilled.


Fast way forward, record scratch, I am now in an attempt to drag myself out of a very long-standing sunken state, and am inspired to return to study of the planets. Although I have been following transits for a while now, I have recently picked up on horary, with an attitude of moving on and letting go, once and for all. It is not only a personal interest, of course, but also a way of relating to the larger universe in a more active way.


I have a lot to review -- I have forgotten so much of what was second nature back in the day, but I look forward to studies to come, and what community and teaching I might find here.


All the best,
"Miss Kitty"

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
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

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


our TRADITIONAL ASTROLOGY ONLY board includes HELLENISTIC astrology


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.

Welcome Miss Kitty, I am Libra Sun as well. I too, have an extensive library, and I too, had an error in my chart and studied it wrong for years, it was enlightening, to accept my "new" chart. I was in denial for a while. I liked my Sag Asc. Alas I am Scorpio Ascending. I have learned to embrace it, as, it makes sense.



Hope you like it here. Opal

Best, Kitty

keep in mind that
that ascendant is not the only one

descriptive of being "...mysterious and deep...."
generalisation is tempting fun

yet so unreliable

It would depend, actually, on what i need to be reliable for, or to. For me, work requires my total reliability, especially this time of year. I have responsibilities, that have to come first, to an interest that does not pay the bills.


But, that is generalization, and how it goes.

Hey Jupiter --
Thanks for the tip! I was, of course, making a joke, so the cliché generalization was sort of the point. I promise if I ever do a real reading for Scorpio rising, I will not lead with that.
Best,
Kitty

Hey Kitty, you seem to have the perfect mixture of depth and being communicative to stick around for the long haul. Hope you do.
