If you don't know anyone to refer me to, maybe you know of a reputable organization I can contact to begin the process of finding a reader? Thanks in advance.

    You might head over to The American Federation of Astrologers. Many resources are provided including links to professional associates of the organization.

    Hi Tea,

    I totally agree with you!!! Martha's Mechanics of the Future: Asteroids sits on my computer desk for easy access. I refer to her often. She is absolutely brilliant!

    Thanks for calling her work to our attention.

    Hi Soulscape!

    Mechanics is probably my favorite book to use. I guess it's because with the asteroids you have maybe a few keywords and phrases, whereas with the planets you have hundreds.

    The astrological glyphs or symbols tell a story all their own, one worth hearing. Let’s take the time to go through some of the main symbols and make brief comments.

    Amateur Astrological Info on Casey and Caylee Thread #1
    <snipped but with respect to housemouse>
    In the event some of you are curious about the keywords I use in trying to figure out "forensic" charts, here they are. Please, if you are looking at your own natal charts, do not apply these to yourselves, for these are only used in charts like Casey's, when there is a crime, or a missing person.

    Sun: men, authority figures, self, day of the event.
    Moon: Female emotions, family
    Mercury: the mind, communication, thief, children, neighborhood
    Venus: women, attraction/lust, money,
    Mars: anger, cruelty, fighting, violence, sex, brutal attacks
    Jupiter: increases, excess, male figures
    Saturn: isolation, separation, restriction, control, loss
    Uranus: sudden, unusual, strange, explosion, accident, extraordinary
    Neptune: mysteries, missing individuals, drugs, alcohol, drowning, suicide, water, chemicals/drugs
    Pluto: murder, abduction, death, rape, abuse of power, ruthless use of force

    Link to single post from housemouse:
    http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...&postcount=196

    More info on Mars:
    Also associated with the police, military, anger, violence, cruelty, murder, fighting, sharp objects like knives and scalpels, surgeons, perjury, projectiles, rage, tattoos, temper, and sudden deaths.

    Sun and Mercury opposing Neptune. Mercury inconjunct Uranus
    Reinforces the Neptune issues.
    drugs/drowning/gas/deception/lies/asphxiation
    the above also reflects the mystery of her unknown father, and the possible lying about the same. Also unusual sudden events

    Mercury and Saturn squaring Mars while Venus and Pluto both sesquiquadrate Mars, Venus squares Pluto. Moon inconjunct Mars
    This is a horrible set of aspects.
    suffering, separation caused by disputes, arguments, by force.
    brutal and coarse expression of feeling, hastiness, premature action.

    Now, the above words come straight from Ebertin's Combination of Stellar Inluences.

    Explanation of how midpoints work from housemouse:
    http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...&postcount=220
    Midpoints just give additional information about how the planets "interact" with one another. The way they are calculated is to find the midpoint between two planets.
    An example of midpoints:
    http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...&postcount=222

    Midpoints that are interesting:
    Saturn = Sun/Uranus
    sudden separation, sudden loss, separation from another carried out in haste
    Pluto = Sun/Moon
    critical phases in life, separation from others
    Uranus = Ascendant/Midheaven,
    sudden experiences, quick determination, spoiling of one's plans
    Uranus = Mars/ Saturn
    sudden accident, separation, case of death

    Online Astrology Groups

    You can join an online group that offers beginning astrology. I have one but we haven't been very active due to my being otherwise occupied, but here's a group:

    http://horoscopeschat.yuku.com/directory

    You'll probably have to sign up with the service first - free - if you don't have an account with them. Then you'll need to sign up with the group. Tell them member AlexaK referred you from her group if they ask for info about yourself.

    Have fun. I'm not sure if they've moved all their information from our old site yet, but normally they have tons of stuff.

    This is the link to my group, but we're in the middle of moving from the old site, same as HOROSCOPECHAT, so we haven't been very active. You may join. All new participants must be approved by me, so there will be a time delay. I'm not sure if I made this one private.

    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/AstrologersForum/


    Here are two more groups that are good, and I'm a member (rather inactive as of late) of both. Horary Hour is just horary, so it's better for those more advanced than "beginner" but it's a great read for newbies, too:

    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/HoraryHour/


    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ChartT...guid=218466291


    I'm not sure if they have them "locked" and you have to join by request, but they usually accept most people.

    Teacher of John Frawley (see The Horary Textbook in my post #6 above.) Responsible for bringing William Lilly's Christian Astrology back into the astrological mainstream. Developed a qualifying horary diploma course leading to the Q.H.P. certification (Qualified Horary Practitioner).

    Quote: "Much of astrology is unprovable waffle. The advantage of horary questions is that they work and can be seen to work."

    An important book for the well-rounded Horary Astrologer's Library.


    Handbook of Horary Astrology by Karen Hamaker-Zondag

    Quote: "In horary astrology, all the information is based on rulers. If this is forgotten, the answer fails."

    Suggests using the natal chart to gain supplementary information; also explains the concept of the Consultation Chart (cast for the moment the client arrives) and its usefulness.



    The Martial Art of Horary Astrology by Dr. J. Lee Lehman, Ph.D.

    On the faculty at Kepler College, Dr. Lehman is a proponant of Western Classical Astrology (William Lilly, etc.). She is an excellent interpreter of mundane charts as well as difficult ones.


    The Houses Temples of the Sky by Deborah Houlding

    Not a horary book per se, but a highly useful addition to the horary astrologer's reference library. Ms. Houlding, an amazingly prolific astrologer, gives an excellent and thorough examination of the 12 houses, including their main rulerships, and their uses in Horary as well as Mundane astrology.

    Free horary lessons are available at her web site, http://www.skyscript.co.uk/


    The Astrology of Death by Richard Houck (1947 - 2001)

    Not for the faint-hearted and definitely not for beginners. Pluto people will love it. A technical and brilliant analysis of every type of death, both expected and unexpected. Houck's work combines both the Hindu (Vedic) and Western systems of astrology.


    Thanks,
    Soulscape
    I'm an astrologer/numerologist and have studied the astrology of crime for many years and am currently about 1/3 of the way finished with my first book on the subject. I love "The Astrology of Death by Houck" and come back to it often.

    I have over 600 books on astrology as well as several software programs (Kepler 7.0, Solar Fire Deluxe 6.9, Time Passages, and Janus) but still prefer to cast a chart by hand.

    I've been studying the astrology of murder and serial killers and would like to recommend 2 great books:

    "Destined For Murder" by Sandra Harrison Young & Edna Rowland and "Zodiac Of Death" by Don Lassiter & Dana Holliday.

    I love forensic astrology (as well as medical astrology) and find it fascinating the propensity for extreme violence can actually be found in a person's birth chart, as can most disease.

    Welcome to the WS Astrology thread EtheralGirl! Thanks for your input on good reference books. As a very interested learner, but non-astrologer here, I certainly appreciate the recommendations.

    Feel free to kick back here and visit often! We look forward to your input on our active cases. Soulscape, Tuba, Kaitland, and Housemouse work very hard to teach us and provide wonderful charts and analyses to try to help and solve cases. They all have amazing gifts, and work very well together. I'm sure new constructive and complimentary input would be welcome, especially from someone with a similar forensic horary background.

    Again, ((((Hugs)))) and welcome to our group!

    P.S. My daughter is a trauma nurse (RN in ER <---always an acronym lol). She's very passionate about what she does too...absolutely loves it.

    Yes very stressful, but she says she wouldn't work in any other department lol. She's tried the floor nursing thing and it bores her to tears. Her ultimate goal is to become a flight nurse. (Scares the beejeebies outta me!!)

    Asteroids to consider

    Typhon This was snipped from the description of how Pisces came to be.

    Aphrodite, the goddess of beauty, and her son Eros, the god of love. The two were walking along a river one day when the terrible monster Typhon suddenly rose up out of the water, intent on their destruction. Typhon was ancient and awful. He is alternately identified as the offspring of Gaia and Tartaros, of Hera and Kronos or of Hera alone. No matter what his parentage, Typhon was as strong as a Titan, and therefore as strong as the Olympians. He was as tall as the heavens and his eyes shot flames. Instead of fingers, he had 100 dragon's heads sprouting from his hands.

    Cyane
    http://www.theoi.com/Text/NonnusDionysiaca6.html

    The goddess passed them by, looking for a stony harbourage; and she alighted among the Pelorian cliffs of Threepeak Sicily near the Adriatic shores, where the restless briny flood is driven towards the west and bends round like a sickle, bringing the current in a curve to southwest from the north.(11) And in the place where that River had often bathed the maiden Cyane, pouring his water in fountain-showers as a bridegift,(12) she saw a neighbouring grotto like a lofty hall crowned and concealed by a roof of stone, which nature had completed with a rocky gateway and a loom of stone tended by the neighbouring Nymphs.(13)

    The citations are interesting and can be read at the link.

    Ute
    Ute influences our tribal nature, issues of conformity, and otherwise active and proper deliverance of humanity.

    One more water influence:
    Oceana – = Ocean
    Meaning of OCEANA
    Name: Oceana
    Gender: F
    Meaning: From the Sea
    Origin: Greek

    http://www.ccrsdodona.org/m_dilemma/1999/aw99fa.html
    Very good reading on JFK, Jr’s death…Oceana was prevalent in everyone on the flight’s chart (includes charts at site).



    ETA: One more -- Melpomene is "the muse of tragedy"

    ETA2: Elektra

    Elektra (One of the Pleiades( 7 Sisters))
    Meaning of ELEKTRA
    Name: Elektra
    Gender: F
    Meaning: Bright Light
    Origin: Greek

    The Pleiad Electra /ɪˈlɛktrə/ of Greek mythology was one of the seven daughters of Atlas and Pleione. Electra was the wife of Corythus. She was raped by Zeus and gave birth to Dardanus, who became the founder of Troy, ancestor of Priam and his house. According to one legend, she was the lost Pleiad, disappearing in grief after the destruction of Troy. She was called Atlantis by Ovid, personifying the family of Pleiades. Electra means "amber," "shining," and "bright."

    Ulula
    http://www.scribd.com/doc/9378417/Di...r-Planet-Names

    Discovered 1911 May 18 by J. Helffrich at Heidelberg.
    Named for an order of birds (the owl) of prey with large head and eyes, short hooked bill, strong talons and more or less nocturnal habits. Ulula comes from the Latin word ululare which is an imitation of the call of the owl.

    I don't know if this has any bearing on the chart readings, but I found it interesting.

    Thanks!

    The 3 Liliths

    The 3 Liliths --- Lilith the Asteroid, Dark Moon Lilith and Black Moon Lilith can be confusing. I have located some good information for your study.

    Please read this article by M. Kelley Hunter first. Not only does she describe the 3 Liliths, she also discusses a possible 4th Lilith --- ALGOL!!

    Nurse, I have never looked into the best site for beginner lessons. I did a very quick google, and found this site at the top of the list. It might be a starting point for you.

    Will send an email to the other astro-sleuths, and see if they have any others to recommend. We should find a good site, and put that in the general thread.
