    Hmm, looks like your link is Vedic Astrology. This is an alternate method, and there are many squabbles among the practitioners of Vedic Astrology and traditional "Western" astrology.

    I would suggest that you start with Western first. My second suggestion is that you not pick your own chart, or that of a close relative to study. It is very hard to be objective about yourself or a close relative, and if you see a difficult aspect, you are apt to worry too much.

    Caylee Anthony's is a good first chart, and you can look through all the posts we made on her chart from the beginning, and follow along. I say hers because we have a birth time and location. We are somewhat handicapped in analyzing the Haleigh charts because we do not have these.

    Thank you so much, Soulscape.

    Just yesterday I looked through my old issues of Mountain Astrologer for that article but didn't have that issue and the old link I found for it didn't work. You saved me a bit of work searching for it. Thanks so much.

    So much reading to do. I'll get on it right away.

    Thanks so very much for all the links! You're the best.

    Nurse, be sure to check the General Astro thread. There are lots of links to good astrology sites there. I like http://bobmarksastrologer.com -- he has very understandable lessons posted.

    Thanks,

    I've gone through this thread and didn't see these books listed, but if they are duplications, please forgive me.


    These books are for basic beginner's astrology, but have much info in them:

    Alan Oken's Complete Astrology
    By Alan Oken
    Ibis Press, A Imprint of Nicolas-Hays, Inc./Berwin, Maine
    1980, 1988, 2006
    The classic guide to modern astrology. Highly Recommended.


    Astrology: Understanding the Birth Chart
    By Kevin Burk.
    Llewellyn Publications, 2002
    Very good comprehensive guide for beginning astrologers and for the professional astrologer's library. Includes astrology basics plus dispositor trees, an important factor missing in many introductory astrology books.


    I've attached my astrological book list in a Word document. You can download it for future reference. The books marked with *** are books I recommend for beginners. There are two or three with asterisks that are more advanced, but they're also important for later studies. I've also marked the horary books (horary). Most of the books recommended by the other astrologers aren't included in this list.

    You don't need to have all these books on hand and you don't need to own all of them. You may find some books in your local library.

    Good luck and happy learning!

    This is the place to list books and other resources for gaining an understanding of astrology and how it works and reflects in our every day.

    A reminder of the Guidelines as noted in post #1.

If there is a particular passage or chapter you feel should be given special attention, simply make reference to it.

    I found this article, it is a very interesting read on determining the location of missing people through charts. Its a long read but well worth it

    For those new to astrology and eager to enjoy the adventure, why not try Graphic Astrology by Ellen McCaffery? She is one of the most revered astrologers of modern times and she makes astrology easy and fun.

    Archetypes of the Zodiac
    Kathleen A. Burt
    Llewellyn Publications, 1988
    (out of print, available from bookselling websites like alibris, etc.
    Amazon has some good customer reviews.)

    Alibris synopsis:
    "A fascinating Jungian approach to the 12 zodiac signs. The archetypal journeys of each sign are explained here: Aries' search for a separate identity, Taurus' quest for value and meaning, Gemini's search for variety. Both astrology and mythology have seen a rebirth lately. Cash in on this trend with this classic."

    I have found this book invaluable in both my work and personal life. The essays on Gemini and Scorpio are particularly valuable. They are long and require digesting.

    quoting Tuba again:

    "In my experience, the Fixed Stars are important and there are two respected books that astrologers rely upon: Fixed Stars and Constellations by a MAN named Vivian E. Robson and Fixed Stars & Their Interpretation by Ebertin. There are some new texts on the subject as well. Alternatively, you can find all you need to know about Fixed Stars on the web."

    Thanks Tuba! I love Ellen McCaffrey's Graphic Astology that you previously recommended. Beatufilly written and illustrated, easy to understand, and will definately get used as a quick reference book often in any library after a thorough read.

    Unless a link is included, anything I say, is my opinion and my opinion only. It may not be the truth as others see it, but I do have the right to my opinion.

    Quick question, which ephemerides are most accurate? The online ones all vary by a degree or two, and not all show phases of the moon, eclipes, etc...

    Thanks in advance!

    The Deutsch Ephemerides have a fine reputation. The few time errors entered their pages, errata were published along with the ephemeris. You can trust them. Also Golgge, if you can find them. Raphael's includes what you want, an aspectarian and the phases of the Moon. Deutsch has none of that. Rosicrucian has those extras. Deutsch & Golgge are the most accurate. A-P is another good ephemeris but hard to come by. At one time it was published by Aries Press. We also now have the American Ephemeris, lunar phases included and aspects. The price is right. I have NOT found inaccuracies in the American.
