Hi,

I am finding as I am progressing more and more with my tarot readings, i am also being drawn more to Astrology. Can anyone recommend a good place to start.....I was thinking of signing up for a corespondence course i found on the net (based in uk) as I need some structure to follow, what do you think? I know there is so much to learn but I feel i need to start somewhere........

I have only just discovered this thread on Hp, which is great as i can now start reading with great interest all your posts so far.

Many thanks

Jess

hi jess

I wonder what angle of astrology interests you the most?

I cannot give inside advice about correspondence courses as I attended live classes in esoteric astrology and some in psychological astrology.

The Mayo School has been around a long time...I wonder if anyone has any dealings with their correspondence school?

Their courses are not cheap though

Hello Jess

Also have a look at the 'sticky' thread pinned to the top of this forum, or click here:

The Mayo School already mentioned is in one of the posts there, along with some others.

Thanks Prashna, i will take a look...and let you know how i get on!!

Tigress, i am interested in how the position of the planets, moon etc affects our moods and decision making and personality traits etc. I pick up snipits from the psychic tv show and often when the astrologers mention aspects that are going on that affect our personalities I can really identify with and also the tone of my readings seem to echo this. I am logged on doing tarot readings at the mo, and many are feeling very restricted to do with their decision making at the moment, and if it was to do with a certain element going on in astrology i would like to be able to mention this to them to let them know there is a genuine reason etc...

But i imagine i have to learn everything from scratch to gain this insight???

The course i found was £50 for first module and then 20 for each module after for up to 12 more? Its called Mandragora Complementary Studies (I am not sure if I am allowed to mention this?) How much is other course, in the thousands??

Further to my post above ... yes, Jess, it's fine to mention courses in which you have an interest or want information. It's only courses actually being promoted or run by members that are not allowed on the discussion forums, since those have their own section - internal links to Courses and others are at the top of any page of HP.

If you can provide links to the websites of schools or courses you are considering, so others can view them, that's all to the good.

Best wishes with your future studies. 🙂

hi jess
I think this is a great idea, and as well as reading the books, how about paying attention to when the moon is new and when it is full and noticing how you feel at these times

I am always amazed when people do not notice that the moon is full, I love to gaze at it in the sky and also find the full moon energy in certain signs can be very powerful

My moon is in aries, what sign is your moon in?

Hi Tigress,

I hope you don't mind me asking but where did you do your esoteric astrology live classes.
Luv Bxx

Hi Jess,

One of the first places I started out on was evening classes - some areas may still be running them, but am not up to date on that one. I also did the correspondence course with the Mayo School many moons ago, when it wasn't very expensive.

I think it is probably good to do some research yourself and approach and talk to people and see which one you connect with.

I did them a long time ago, with Douglas Baker in Potters Bar, and then went on to teach it.

His work was a distillation of the Alice Bailey material..making it a lot more accessible.
It also included working with the Rays.
I liked it as there is a technique to extract the soul's purpose aspect, and it works a lot with myths and symbols, which is right up my street.

for example, I was out with a group of people on Saturday, and one of them is alos an astologer, he was talking about his satrunr in Pisces in the 4th house, when we came to a pond with fish a some sculptures I perceived it as a great symbol for what we had been dicsussing

saturn ( stone figures ) in pisces (all the fish) in the 4th house (water/home of the fish)

This symbolic way of translating placements extends and expands on the text book meanings, and adds an extra dimension of meaning

So are you intersted in esoteric astrology too

Hi,

I've done a few seminars with Alan Oken when he came to the UK, who works from the books of Alice Bailey, and have been to some lectures by Elena Dramcini who is a very good esoteric astrologer. Would like to look more into this area and study it further. I've got quite a vast book collection including most of the works of AB, but as you say it is quite inaccessible.

I'd quite like to get back into all of this as it was approx. 20 years since I went to the lectures.

Luv Binah

hi Tigress
my moon is in Gemini,hoever did you realize the the moon moves forward or backwards according to the time of your birth.
the books are amazing and inlightening,i love diving into my books as we cannot hold onto the vast amount of information they can teach us,however,casting a chart can give correct positions of all the planets at the time of your birth.

Hi,

Whilst browsing the web I noticed on the site for the Seven Ray Institute that Michael Robbins is writing a new book on esoteric astrology, which I promise to buy myself when it emerges - so I will start saving some more money - I already have some book tokens - I am anticipating this is going to be a weighty tome and quite expensive.

Have to go now going to a lecture by Melanie Rheinhart on Pluto as it is getting nearer to ending its long journey through Sagittarius and will enter Capricorn for another long run. Any thoughts on the transformative power of Pluto in Sag - and thoughts about its demotion from planet to planetoid (whatever that is).

Will let you know what Melanie has to say.

Astrology is a science to finding the connection between those of us on the earth and the cosmos. Usually, It works on the position of the planets and the stars. There are many [url]Horoscope and Astrology Prediction[/url] websites, that taught you about the complete astrology and planet positions. You can start about the astrology from the symbol of astrology. After that learn the classifying the zodiac signs and interpretation them on their different planetary positions.
