Astrology Tips

  1. Astrology began as the study of the "wandering" stars, or planets, as we know them today. It is actually the study of cycles, indicated by planetary movements and associated with energies and events occurring at the same time on Earth.

  3. The four elements describe the basic qualities of the signs and of life. There are three signs for each element. The fire signs are Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius; the earth signs are Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn; the air signs are Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius; and the water signs are Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces.
  4. Your midheaven, or M.C., represents your ambition, career, or social role and public image. It's the highest point that the Sun reached on the day of your birth. Your I.C. is the point on your birth chart that represents your life's foundations and psychological roots. It's found on the exact opposite side of the earth from the midheaven.
  5. Your ascendent is your rising sign, the sign that was rising over the horizon at the moment of your birth. Your rising sign represents the "you" that the outside world perceives, as well as personality traits and needs, and your physical characteristics.
  6. Mutable signs such as Gemini, occur as the season is changing and so are associated with transitions. Other mutable signs are Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces.
  7. Approximately every 29 days, the Moon moves through four major phases. Every 2nd day, the Moon changes signs.
  8. All birth times need to be converted to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) in order to calculate the positions of the planets.
  9. The houses are the "where" of astrology. Each of the 12 houses encompasses a specific area of your life.
  10. The first house is sometimes called the house of self-interest, because it not only shows what you want, but how you're going to get it.
