What You Will Learn
The Beginner’s Guide to Astrology is a complete and thorough examination of the fundamentals of astrology. Everything from birth charts to moon cycles is covered in this book. Not only that, but you will also learn how to incorporate astrology and its practices into your daily life.
A birth chart, also known as a natal chart, is an astrological chart displaying the relative positions of planets, points, angels, the zodiac signs, and other heavenly bodies at the precise moment of birth. Your specific birth chart is determined using the date, exact time, and place of birth. Your birth chart is your key to understanding astrology, allowing it to enlighten you of many facets of your personality and your life.
Your sun sign refers to the zodiacal position of the sun at the exact time of your birth. Even for those new to astrology, the vast majority of people know their sun sign. They are Aries (March 21 – April 19), Taurus (April 20 – May 20), Gemini (May 21 – June 21), Cancer (June 22 – July 22), Leo (July 23 – August 22), Virgo (August 23 – September 22), Libra (September 23 – October 22), Scorpio (October 23 – November 21), Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21), Capricorn (December 22 – January 20), Aquarius (January 20 – February 18), and Pisces (February 19 – March 20). In the Beginner’s Guide to Astrology, we take an in-depth look at each sun signs and consider the common personality traits for each.
There are four elements in astrology – fire, earth, air, and water. Each element possesses both a yin (feminine energy) and yang (masculine energy). Each of the four elements governs three signs. Fire governs Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius; Earth governs Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn; Air governs Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius; and Water governs Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. The Beginner’s Guide to Astrology studies each of these elements and teaches you about the exact qualities of each element, and how they correspond to the signs they govern.
Our Solar System
Understanding our Solar System and its planets are an essential part of understanding astrology. In astrology, the Earth’s moon and the sun are known as planets and are regarded as luminaries. In the Beginner’s Guide to Astrology, we look at the major players within our Solar System and the unique characters of each, as well as how this affects our lives and our sun signs. As well as the moon and the sun, we examine Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. While Pluto may have been marked as a ‘dwarf planet’ in 2006, its value and significance within astrology remain strong.
In astrology, the zodiac is divided into 12 segments, known as houses. A different star sign rules each of the 12 houses. The first house is ruled by Aries, the second house by Taurus, the third house by Gemini, the fourth house by Cancer, the fifth house by Leo, the sixth house by Virgo, the seventh house by Mercury, the eight house by Scorpio, the ninth house by Sagittarius, the tenth house by Capricorn, the eleventh house by Aquarius, and the twelfth house by Pisces. In the Beginner’s Guide to Astrology, we take an in-depth look into each of the 12 houses.
The aspects refer to the explanations of relationships between planets and the zodiac signs they’re currently in. In this section, we will study the conjunction, opposition, square, trine, and sextile.
Every 29.5 days, the moon goes through a number of cycles. In this section we will learn about the new moon, waxing crescent, first quarter, waxing gibbous, and full moon. Understanding what the moon phase was when you were born is crucial as it helps us learn more about our life.
