Astrology can be a vast and beautiful subject that you can consider taking up and starting a career. It can be great fun to provide accurate predictions and useful insights to people and choose how you want to work.
There is more to astrology than what meets the eye. It can be a deeply complex subject that is best to be approached as serious science. Hence, it is essential to know how to get started to become a good astrologer. Here are some tips for you to begin learning astrology the right way:
Read Plenty of Books
You will want to get your hands on as many books as possible and spend time reading them. There are plenty of great books out there that will help you get a firm understanding of the psychic basics, such as “The Complete Guide to Astrology: Understanding Yourself, Your Signs, and Your Birth Chart” by Louise Edington, “The Essential Guide to Practical Astrology” by April Elliott Kent, ‘Chart Interpretation Handbook’ by Stephen Arroyo and “Parker’s Astrology” by Derek and Julia Parker.
Decide Which Type of Astrology You Want to Focus On
There are many types of astrological systems like Vedic astrology, Chinese astrology, Natal astrology, and Horary Astrology. When starting out, it is best to focus on traditional astrology. Once you have understood the basic techniques and methods, you can move on to exploring more modern and western forms of astrology.
One of the best ways to dive deep into this field is to start attending workshops and classes. You will find plenty of like-minded, enthusiastic people here who will help you deepen your understanding of astrology.
Make sure to attend lots of astrology conferences as you get to learn from the professionals. It’s also a good idea to join an online forum that is dedicated for the discussion of astrology, such as ‘The Skyscript Forum’ and ‘The Astrodienst Forum.”
You can also make use of the courses and schools available on the Internet, such as ‘Astrology University,’ ‘International Academy of Astrology,’ ‘The American College of Vedic Astrology, ‘Hellenistic Astrology Courses’ and ‘The Association for Young Astrologers. Make sure to check out the astrological podcasts and videos available on the Internet as well.
There is no shortcut around practice when it comes to astrology. The best place to start with is yourself. You can get a copy of your birth chart and start working with it, and you can provide free astrological readings to close family members and friends. You can also try studying the birth charts of famous people.
It is always important to brush up on your basics and review yourself from time to time. You will want to work on as many charts as possible and become fully well-versed with the various signs, houses, and planets. Make sure to buy an astrological calendar to help you with the process. Remember that mastery takes time, effort and consistency.
