A Little Astrology

Every year more and more people from all walks of life turn to astrology for answers to questions in their lives.

Many individuals want to learn astrology, although they have no plan to be a full time, or even a part-time, astrologer. Many people want to know for their own pleasure.

This is the handbook that compliments the Starzology Beginner Astrologer’s Course available One-on-One with Alison.

Use it as a guide to the intricacies of an astrology chart. This is book one of three and the other books in this series are;

  • The Intermediate Astrologer’s Course Handbook (available soon)
  • The Advanced Astrologer’s Course Handbook (available soon).

This book will guide you to focus on key pointers in a birth chart, so you can get to read a chart quickly and confidently.

The Benefits of Astrology

To understand how knowing some astrology benefits you.

It is a little like knowing something about body language.

For example, if someone has their arms folded, it is a powerful signal that they are not open to what you have to say.

This is basic stuff, but great information that you can use every time you speak to someone who has already shut you out because you now can do something else or approach them differently to reach them in other ways.

I see astrology like this.

With a little astrology knowledge, you can connect with people in a better way through the understanding of their core personality, characteristics and behaviors as shown through their birth chart.

Your life was mapped out with core characteristics from the day you were born. The knack is knowing how to read a birth chart.

Who this book is for

This book is for you if you are at the start of your astrological journey.

It is for anyone who wants to get to grips with astrology fast, and someone who does not have time to waste on the tons of details in astrology.

Learn about the importance of staying on the high roads and leaving the back roads and windy paths for another day.

You can spend the rest of your life learning more and more about astrology, but you do not need to know everything right now.

You are at the start of your astrological journey, and this book will guide you towards what is immediately important and what can be left for another day.

If you have reached a period in your life when time is critical, and you do not have three years to spend learning something new, then this book is for you.

Astro Art

I use a lot of Astro Art in my astrology practice, and I want to share it with you.

This book is rich in chart imagery with simple visuals that have a powerful message.

You can see some of the Astro Art that I share on my Instagram “Starzology” feed as well.

There is only so much time and energy that I have already put into this work.


There are two semesters of eight chapters each.

The two semesters comprise the full Level 1 work for the Starzology Academy of Astrology and these chapters are considered first-year astrology learning.

Additionally, and to help you grow as an astrologer, you are expected to do sixteen hours of independent study for each semester.

Aspiring Astrologer Activities

The Aspiring Astrology activities are after each chapter. These are like your homework and can be related to every chart that you do from now on into the future.

Testimonials On my Teaching and Courses:

“I scoured the internet to find the right teacher and in working with Alison I did. I looked forward to my weekly classes and felt that I definitely learned a lot. I liked that there were assignments and felt that they helped me learn more. As a teacher, she is kind, warm, funny and incredibly professional. For me, I couldn’t think of a better way to start than having a one on one tutor. I would absolutely recommend Starzology” – K. P. Toronto

“I have taken previous courses on astrology but these were of the internet webinar type where you could see and hear the presenter but the chance to interact with them was very limited. So I was delighted to find and then take Alison Price’s Introduction to Astrology course. The personal two-hour lessons gave me every opportunity to get my questions answered and make sure that I really understood the material. The chance to have such one-to-one sessions with a very knowledgeable astrologer meant that I could make very good progress and cleared up a lot of the problems and queries I had.” – Andrew K, – London, UK 

“Alison is a passionate and devoted teacher. She never hesitates to pass down her experience and knowledge to her students. Also, she encourages her students to think about controversial astrological topics and develop their own style as an astrologer. I enjoy being her student and hopefully I can study under her again.”  ~ W.Y.W. , Hong Kong

“I came to Alison as a novice astrology student with little to no expectations as to where a class with a professional astrologer would take me. Not only did I complete her introductory course and learn concepts not yet explored through self-teaching, but her encouragement and enthusiasm led me to enrol in natal interpretation, synastry and forecasting classes with her as well. She went above and beyond in her lessons and ensured I received the best education possible, even offering private lessons when the classroom didn’t meet my individual needs. Her lessons were clear and insightful, as were her analyses of my own natal chart and current transits. I highly recommend both her teaching and consultation services.” ~ Stephanie. Z.  Oakville

“I studied with Alison in Oakville taking 3 of the courses she offers her students – Natal Analysis, Intro to Forecasting & Synastry. She is an excellent teacher – well prepared with excellent study notes, and a wonderful sense of humor. I also use her Second Opinion services on a mentoring basis to confirm and expand my own astrological forays on client charts. Overall a beautiful woman, wish I lived closer to continue to experience her energies through her work with the Fraser Valley Astrological Guild.” ~ Shirley. W. March 2012 – Southern Ontario

“The material presented was well organized, understandable, knowledgeable and detailed. In particular I was most appreciative of the handouts… what an incredible reference guide.” ~ P. C. Etobiko

“Alison, you are a gifted teacher, who is very organized and have a great environment to be in. Thank you.” ~ M. M. – Burlington, ON

“Thank you.  I feel more grounded [since taking the course] and felt you were extremely professional yet very warm and giving.” ~ M. M.

Alison is a very informative and patient instructor. She understands the needs of her students.” ~ D. S. – Hamilton, ON

“I really enjoy your lessons, you provide a wealth of information.” ~ M. W. – Milton, ON
