My Patrons

What is Patreon?

Patreon is a place that showcases artists and creative people so that patrons (that’s you) may choose to support creative people (that’s me) through small, regular financial giving. Your patronage can be as modest as $1 a month.

Who I am

I am Alison Price a writer, astrologer and creative in Vancouver, Canada. I live sparingly with my family and maintain a low carbon footprint. I have no car, no cable TV and no pets. I care for a plant called Egbert and lots of books.

In my creative work I have a computer, phone and printer. I use software, paper and ink and I have internet and web hosting commitments. These things are my main expenses apart from a roof and food (for Egbert you know).

I share and grow my astrology knowledge at workshops and conferences where I usually teach but sometimes I just attend. I like to recharge my creative juices through spending time with inspired people.

My currency is astrological and new age knowledge.

My Creative Work

I am driven to provide basic astrology that everyone can use. I strive to give you enough information so you can bring the essence of astrology into your life without having to learn the detailed intricacies of chart work or in other words the nitty gritty.

My goal is to raise basic astrological knowledge of everyone through simple, but correct, information. This is the stuff you can confidently use and you know some already like your Sun sign.

I aim to take this knowledge out of the ivory towers of “Astrology only” people and make it available for those who seek understanding. If you support enlightenment then you can help everyone else on their journey.

Of course I am happy with high level astrological theory, debate and questions but that only appeals to a select group.

Your Support

I ask for your support, through your patronage, so I can continue to develop and write about astrology for everyone. Please help me.

Thank You

Your contribution means so much to me. I appreciate each and every one of you. Thank you for considering to be my patron.

Astrology Basics – The Houses

Beginner’s Astrology

The chart basics are four basic building blocks of knowledge. as a student of astrology you need to get a grip on some basic principles and this post is about the houses. The other building blocks  are:


The Meaning of the Houses

An astrological chart is divided into twelve sections, or houses, and each house is a different size. The chart looks like a pizza where each house is a segment.

Each house represents a separate area of life and planets in houses suggest that a particular area of life, like family or work, is important to you.

The houses are like a slice of life.


First house

The first house shows you, your body, what you look like, your complexion, fashion style, gait, haircut and first impression.

Second house

The second house is all about money, credit and acquisitions. It shows your values and what you value more than money. It suggests your self-worth and self-esteem.

Third house

The third house shows your brothers and sisters, school, neighbors, local area, short journeys and community involvement.

Fourth house

Your home, hearth and family life is shown by the fourth house in your chart. Your dominant parent (who is the one was there on a daily basis providing care and nurtured you) is shown by the fourth house.

Fifth house

The fifth is the fun house. It shows your children, your leisure activities, your romantic dates, play dates, sport, concerts and your creative expression. It suggests where you find entertainment and this includes risk activities like riding on a roller coaster, playing the stock market and gambling.

Sixth house

The sixth house is the house of your day-to-day work, pets, small plants, health and service to others. It shows your diet and exercise appetite. The sixth house in your chart shows your daily rituals, meditation and other habitual practices.

More on the sixth house.

Seventh house

The seventh house indicates your marriage, your partner/spouse, business partners and your relationship with other people. It shows the general public, your relationship with others and open enemies.

Eighth house

The eighth house suggests your secrets, sex life, money from others, donations from others, support from others, inheritance, insurance, debt, death and taxes. It shows the inevitable things of life.

Ninth house

The ninth house suggests your vision, life-path, travel, long journeys, higher education, foreign cultures, publications and religion.

Tenth house

The tenth house is all about your career, public standing, reputation and what the world knows you for. It is where you are in the public eye. It indicates your passive parent

Eleventh house

The eleventh house shows your choice of friends, groups and causes. It is where you are a team player. It shows your social conscious.

Twelfth house

The twelfth house is the house of your imagination, self-undoing, chronic health issues, institutions, dreams, sleep and your subconscious. It shows your secret enemies.

by Alison Price

Here are the basics of astrology and what you need to know to read a horoscope or birth chart.

Building Blocks

There are four building blocks to chart reading:

And on top of that you need to know about chart division and chart points.

Master the Basics

If you are learning astrology you will do yourself a favour if you can grasp these basics. Then when you do read more intermediate or advanced astrology it will make more sense.

As a kid when you learned how to read it was one step at a time. First the alphabet J-a-c-k, then words Jack, and then sentences “See Jack.”

Astrology interpretation is much like learning to read.

Series

This series of posts will give you all the basic keywords and facts you need to understand the nature of astrology.

Yes, of course there is more but these are the “See Jack , see Jack run” basic components so you can begin.
