How Beginners Can Read Their Own Birth Charts


An Interactive Book That's All About You

Excited to learn what astrology says about you? You're just two steps from finding out!

Step 1: Get your free astrological birth chart from any one of these sites which I have reviewed for reliability.

Step 2: Get the book Astrology For Yourself, the #1 book for people wanting simple, non-technical, truthful guidance in reading their own natal charts. You'll learn what your houses and planets mean and in less than 80 pages will gain a new view of your personality and the talents and tendencies the planets say you were born with.

This book lets you be your own astrologer. If you enjoy the workbook style of learning -- read a page of information, then fill in the blanks or circle the answers on the facing page for reinforcement -- you can master the basics about your chart in a week or two, and keep them private.

The fundamentals are covered in the first 80 pages or so of this 250-page book, up to the middle of Chapter 3, "Writing Your Personality Profile." Stick with the familiar planets such as Mercury and Saturn, which have meanings and influences studied for thousands of years. For example, the lesson called "I Interpret Saturn in My Birth Chart" uses "Saturn keyphrases" so you can unlock what your natal Saturn placement means:

  • The ability to create form and structure in your life
  • The fears, insecurities and inhibitions you need to overcome
  • You and the universal laws of time, karma, and cycles

The later chapters are advanced material about, for example, the moon's nodes and the asteroids. They make this book complete. Those chapters are there if and when you are ready.

This book isn't a game. It's real astrology. The authors are authorities in the field and assume you have normal intelligence and a little time and energy to invest in learning. Astrology for Yourself could be a turning point in your relationship with astrology: from fun fluffy Internet entertainment to real respect for the art and science practiced by the Magi who followed a star to Bethlehem. And you learn it by focusing on YOU.
