Re: How did you get into astrology?

Hi,I am from China.So astrology is very common here,though in a different name:Chinese astrology.

I began study Chinese astrology not long ago but am very much into it.The reason I started this study is because I am in love with some one

What I believe in astrology is that it has some science.

Re: How did you get into astrology?

I came upon a copy of Linda Goodman's Sun Signs when I was in Germany around 1970. When I returned to the US in 1971 my younger brother was already an advanced astrologer and I began working with him, beginning a long association with psychological astrology that I only recently turned the corner on, and I'm now headed deeply into traditional astrology, along with continuing my work with tarot, geomancy, lithomancy and qabalistic magic.

I also bought a book about Sun Sign astrology, but it was for myself. It was only a £1 and was on the last chance shelf, I felt a bit sorry for it and thought "I might as well". To my surprise, inside the book in also contained ways to calculate your moon and rising sign, it also mentioned something about a birth chart. From there I started reseaching astrology on the internet and here I am.

Re: How did you get into astrology?

LEARNING IS A PROCESS.. it never ends..whenever a person says he knows the full subject of astrology , he is not telling the truth.....anyway
studied NUMEROLOGY , ASTROLOGY ,LAL KITAB for many years , if u have any question regarding ASTROLOGY,
LAL KITAB , Want to know about your horoscope, your life then,
can give your DATE OF BIRTH, TIME OF BIRTH (if possible).. write the NAME of the MONTH (e.g. January, November,etc). (do NOT give MONTH NUMBER, otherwise it creates confusion.) Then, By ASTROLOGY, your question may be answered in a day....

So anyways astrology seemed cool, someone gave me a book maybe a neighbor, I was about 11 or 12 and I looked up my rising sign and moon sign and it started to make sense. The double leo made a lot of sense muahahah *fades away

My case is an interesting story.
I was bored like hell watching history channel... And there were transmitting a program about Nostradamus and hitler... and that was the 1st time i heard some astrological terms like oppositions, mercury and the signs and i went like WHAT?

Then i made a research and *biinnng* went into astrology. That was some years ago... about 4 or 5.
At the time neptune transit was squaring my pluto. And pluto transit was squaring my natal jupiter. Saturn transit sextilling mercury.

That's all what i remember,
Fragoso
(after that i was took by alliens and they transformed me into this

Actually reading the child about classic history or literature is very much Libran. Libra loves the classic,the ancient times, and it's somewhat an old-fashioned soul. Of course I'm talking about the archaic sign here,someone can have stelium in libra but still be very modern/anti classics type,if they have for example Aquarius Moon or dominant Uranus or Aries,etc.

I suffered a dark night of the soul in 2001. A beloved relative that I had just brought to live with my family wandered away from our home after 24 hours of arriving. She has never been seen or heard from since.
My husband, who has a Masters in Interdisciplinary Consciousness Studies, contacted one of his professors and we were referred to multiple psychics. One of the psychics became a dear friend. She opened me to my own psychic gifts. I began studying astrology in 2001 and have been hooked since then. I have been seeing spirits etc since my late teens.
I feel lucky to have found astrology and websites like this one. Great joy can come out of tremendous sorrow. I never found my aunt but feel blessed to have been opened to the loving world of spirit, astrology, Love And Light.

Blessings to All And Happy Holidays

Re: How did you get into astrology?

I started getting into astrology because I wanted to learn about my potential (but at first I only knew about my Sun sign), and then I discovered the world of birth charts (yes, cafeastrology introduced me to that).

And then when Saturn transited Virgo, opposed Uranus in Pisces and opposed my Ascendant...I really started looking into astrology because I was going through a really rough patch...

Re: How did you get into astrology?

I got into astrology a few years back through a polyamorous relationship gone wrong. I ended up having to learn astrology in self defense; my boyfriend's other girlfriend was trying to convince him that I'd never be right for him because I was a Capricorn and I'd never be the lovely, charming hippy Pisces that she was. Needless to say, the situation deteriorated.

If nothing else, it caused me to pick up an interest in astrology (and an aversion to unconventional relationships).

That's funny..................

Anywho: There was another thread just like this a few months ago and I will respond the same way then. My mom was a hippi and she had the book "The Complete Astrologer" Dereck and Julia Parker on our kitchen table when I was around 6 yrs. old and i remember I used to like to look at the pictures (I was a perverted little girl). My mom and her friends would talk about astrology too. So fast forward till the age of 16 yrs and I saw the same book at a book store and bought it. From that book I learned almost everything I know about astrology. There is another really good astrology book that I love called "The Astrologer's Handbook" by Francis Sakoian and Louis S. Acker. Both these books are so worn, and they have been so loved, that they are being held together by giant rubberbands!!! What's really cool was that later in life when I could afford to have my chart done by sending off for it, and other charts too, I had did their natal chart really well!! I was proud of myself. But of course I found AW and found that I am basically an ameba in the astrological world and that I know/knew nothing: But I'm learning (evil laugh here)!!!!!

That's my story.

Re: How did you get into astrology?

Started as a preteen reading the horoscopes in the teen magazines. Learned more about sun signs during high school and college, then finally discovered the free birthchart websites a couple of years ago and realized how much more there is too them. slowly learning more.

Re: How did you get into astrology?

Uh, hmm...I think it went like this...

I was bored. I had no new books to read. I hate rereading books. Oh, look. My mom owns a bookshelf..Hm..There only Stephen King books on here...Boring..Oh, what's this? A pink book. How pretty!

Hmm..Linda Goodman's Love Signs. Oh, how lame. Really, mom? Ugh. I bet it's one of those erotic books sex deprived, middle-aged women buy, right? It's missing a half naked pirate named Leonardo with hair down to his back, though..

So I cracked it open and read my little heart out. Ever since then I've been into astrology. I liked the psychology of the signs.

Re: How did you get into astrology?

It was sometime around the age of 14 or 15.

I came across (or was given) Edgar Cayce's book, There is a River. It sent me in all sorts of directions and my life was changed forever. More than any other adventure, it is Astrology that has stayed with me, that feels the most like 'home'.

It will always be a part of my life, fading in and out, a hobbyist.

Re: How did you get into astrology?

I didn't even know what my sign was until I was about 11! A classmate brought in an astrology book and we huddled around all very excited...this was before the internet lol. I was told I was a Pisces to which I replied "what's a Pisces?". Apparently a fish! Hmmm...I was a bit disappointed. Secretly I hoped I was the bull or lion...kind of like in Chinese astrology you wanna be the Dragon or Tiger, the "cool" signs hehe. Of course NOW I know it's cool to be a Pisces

A few years later I picked up an astrology magazine on a whim which taught me the relationship between signs, elements, aspects etc. Then a few years later after that I stumbled onto the astrology section at my library and took a few books home. And I've been hooked ever since!

Haha! My friends and I were constantly getting the signs Taurus, Sag, and Aries mixed up! It was so bad that till this day I can't remember if tis one girl was an archer or a bull. I usually can remember everything about my friends, no matter how long ago it was. I do remember, however, that one was a Libra, another was a Virgo, and another was an Aries. The Libra, Virgo, and Aries were my closest childhood friends.

Before I ever really studied astrology, I would make up personalities for the sun signs and my peers would come up to me and I'd tell them what their sign was like. Some signs I got right, but others I was a little off. Either way, it was fun!

Opposite for me...Except for my Aries friend and Libra. I remember what my Aries' birthday was because it was the day right before mine, and my Libra friends' birthday was October 18th, which, for whatever reason, I found an easy birthday to remember...

I definitely know one was a Scorpio because she said so and it stuck in my little 11 year old brain lol, but that's it. I still can't remember if my childhood friend was a Cancer or Leo. Or was it Leo or Virgo?...oh dear
