My First Time

Yep... I can still remember my sense of astonishment and fascination the very first time that I visited a real bona fide astrologer for a reading...

Like you, I knew what my Zodiac Sun Sign was... and I innocently enough carried with me the belief that the 12 general descriptions of Zodiac Sun Signs (and Daily Horoscopes in the newspaper) were pretty much what astrology was all about...

Yes... on this very first visit to an astrologer I had little (or no) clue that the two luminaries (the Sun and the Moon) and the eight planets (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto) in our solar system all play unique roles in the ancient art and practice of astrology.

On that eventful day, I received my first copy of a "natal (birth) chart."

Strange, Squiggly, Indecipherable Symbols
When first taking a look at this odd looking "birth chart," all I knew was that it contained a picture of a wheel with all sorts of strange, squiggly, and indecipherable symbols. I was totally clueless about all the "places" these strange, squiggly, indecipherable symbols would inevitably take me!

And while Sun Sign Astrology is still a heck of a lot of fun to play with and investigate.... what I discovered on this fateful trip was that Sun Sign astrology is just the tip of the iceberg when deciphering the ancient, mysterious art and symbols of astrology.
