At the bottom level you should start with a basic introductory textbook, or at least have one handy if you are going to attempt a more complex work. You might also find a text on Astronomy for Astrologers (there's a work by John and Peter Filbey). Again though I'd say get to know the basics first before branching into that, unless you already have a reasonable grasp of Astronomy.
Thank you very much for you response, I have NO grasp of astronomy at all. From your response, I am assuming it is Astronomy I want to look at instead of Astrology?

I was under the impression that astronomy is the study of the planets, star clusters and hubble telescopes... more of a science; and Astrology is the birth charts, planets, houses.. more of the divination. However, I may be confused... and this probably isn't the thread for this discussion... thank you for your reply
