Hi all! As you can see, I've begun to compile astrological resources. If you have a book or website or class etc to recommend to me, please post it here and I will add it to the list!


The Inner Sky by Steven Forrest
An Astrological Guide to Self-Awareness by Donna Cunningham
How to Read your Astrological Chart by Donna Cunningham

I really learned a lot from these three books. They're also fairly straightforward.


I'll compile a list of websites - I have loads of them in favourites. However for all book buyers the absolute best site in the UK (and indeed one of the best internationally) is:

You can take out subscriptions to The Mountain Astrologer and their book list is fantastic.


I have to recommend the correspondence course I'm taking. It's "Astrology: The Cosmic Pattern" by Joanne Wickenburg. The course is in six units, and you can pay for one unit at a time. Each unit costs $80 U.S., and consists of five or six one-hour lessons on cassette tape, plus workbooks. There are homework assignments (multiple choice) to send in to Joanne, who will correct and return them. The course is very comprehensive, covering introduction to planets, signs, houses, aspects; chart calculation and construction by hand; introductory, intermediate and advanced chart interpretation; and transits and progressions. She has separate units for solar return charts and horary. After spending much time researching correspondence courses, I can tell you that this course is among the best in quality and is certainly the most cost-effective.
