Astronomy is a much needed necessity to make accurate charts.
However, with computer programmes making this easier it does mean we are not learning about the real planet's actual movements.
This is the app I mentioned that will help you spot planets (and some stars) https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/astrolabe-clock/id421777015?mt=8
This is a good video from the British Museum showing a real ancient Astrolabe https://youtu.be/N8oWGwcdFmA
Here is Jeff Mayo's book The Astrologer's Astronomical Handbook https://amzn.to/2nOl9PX
This week I am talking about Event Charts.
Making a chart for a forthcoming event, or one that might have already happened.
These can be used for weddings, interviews, starting a project, maybe creating something or dates in the future.
In the creation of Tempesta Chart, we have Virgo Ascendant, Sun Taurus in the 9th, Moon in Leo in the 11th and Mars in Libra in the first....great chart as it turned out!
More info on the remedy here on my blog, I will be updating my website very soon http://www.maryenglish.com/old/tempesta.html
Info on how the proving took place and what happened:
This week we are looking a little deeper at Mercury Retrograde.
Here's the book I mention A New Look at Mercury Retrograde by Robert Wilkinson.
Here is Robert's website http://www.aquariuspapers.com/ (looks interesting!)
Lots of (helpful) info from Donna Cunningham about Mercury Retro https://skywriter.wordpress.com/2016/01/05/how-to-manage-mercury-retrograde/
If you're interested here's Wyatt Earp's chart!
This week we are discussing K's chart. She wrote to me to share her chart which is below. Remember when you make a chart to keep it as clean and easy-to-read as possible. Avoid adding oodles of planets and asteroids, it only confuses understanding your 'self' and your chart. xx

This week is just a bit of fun.
As mentioned here is my mother's chart showing the asteroid with my Dad's name: Noel
...in her 7th house of marriage!
Find some names that mean something to/for you and add them into your chart or someone you know and make a note of the house they fall into.
Does it mean something for you?
Where does your own name end up?
Have fun! <3

This week we are learning about the Ephemeris, the document that lists the Astrological position of all of the planets for each year.
Here's the link to the page I'm using:
Here's what an Ephemeris would look like back-in-the-day, showing my own date of birth (thank you Auntie Jo):
Hiya, this week we are doing some Astronomy #sadface
Bear with me on this one, it will make sense at some point and you don't actually have to understand this to make a chart.... (coz the computer does it all for you!!)
However learning it does give you more Astronomical knowledge which is always a good thing!
Here are the charts we are using.
Celia S time of birth 00.01am in Northern England UK, Taurus MC
compare to Tracy Marks time of birth 12.36pm Miami Beach, Florida USA, Libra MC
and Queen Elizabeth time of birth 2.40am London UK, Scorpio MC
This week is all about Planet Returns.
This is when a planet goes back to be the same sign and degree that is was in when you were born.
In Michael's chart we are showing his chart with his Saturn return just coming up showing in green on the outside wheel..
..and the fact that he had Jupiter retrograde in his chart in the sign of 6 degrees of Cancer in the 11th house
Here is what the ephemeris page on Astro.com looks like
and here is Michael's Jupiter return date and what that looks like on the ephemeris, I've highlighted in blue
As mentioned this is a great book that covers what you do really need to know: How and Why Astrology even started.
Here's the link to the book The Astrologers & Their Creed by Christopher McIntosh https://amzn.to/2HCw7ok
Here's Dr McIntosh's Uni Page:
This is the piccie from the book showing the ecliptic:Sun's apparent path (among the stars) through the year.
And the Equator : imaginary line around the Earth at equal distance to the Poles
Quote from page 24:
These points are what we would now call the solstices and the equinoxes. The diagram below explains these terms more clearly. The sphere is the Earth and the horizontal circle round it represents the equator (imagining that the Earth's axis is vertical). The tilted circle represents the ecliptic, that is the path that the Sun appears to trace around the Earth during the course of a year. The equinoxes are the points where the ecliptic crosses the equator, once in the spring and once in the autumn. These are marked as E1 and E2 (respectively). The solstices are the highest points of summer and winter and are shown as S1 and S2. If one lived in the northern hemisphere S1 would be the summer solstice and S2 the winter one, and vice-versa for the southern hemisphere.
This week I'm discussing Wikipedia which is massively allergic to any Astrology information...even worse when you read about Homeopathy...(Hypnotherapy isn't as badly treated thankfully)
Here's my article on women and Wikipedia
And just so you know, my stats are actually larger than I mentioned
There are now over 18,200 downloads to date 22-4-2018 so you're learning with quite a number of other Astrology interested folk!!
