TWELVE EASY LESSONS FOR ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS | 1. INTRODUCTION, THE PLANETS
"This series of posts for beginners is dedicated to my friend, Wren.
Since the inception of this blog in the autumn of last year, I haven’t been very kind to beginners. I’ve tend to just plow into applying techniques from the early strata of the tradition without much hand-holding. In my own defense, there are astrologers out there who are doing a good job of presenting introductory and reference material, and I’ve referred people to them. I highly recommend Ben Dykes’ Introductions to Traditional Astrology as a reference work and Chris Brennan’s affordable Introduction to Hellenistic Astrology Course for gaining a good thorough understanding of the foundational techniques, their history, and the philosophical questions they pose.
Apparently there is still a strong need for a quick and dirty introduction to pre-Medieval ancient astrology. In this series of posts, I hope to present things in such a way that even someone with no prior experience with astrology will be able to very quickly start reading charts from a Hellenistic perspective, understand any article on this site, and start exploring primary source material."
