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 (available now) and pre-recorded classes (coming soon).

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.

New Book to Help You

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.

Semesters

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.

Your Astrology Holy Trinity and Polarity

By Alison Price

This article will show you what next two steps to take after you know what is your Sun sign. A way to learn astrology.

If you believe your Sun sign is not enough then this is for you.


Sun Sign

Perhaps you already know your Sun sign. It could be Aries, Cancer or Virgo etc. Your Sun sign depends on the date of your birthday. It is the zodiac sign which the Sun was in at the time and day you were born. 

Everyone’s Sun sign is the easiest thing to know in astrology.

You will know your own, and your family’s birthdates, and probably your close friend’s birthdays as well. It is a simple step to ascertain everybody’s Sun sign.

The Sun sign is the first nugget of information that all people know about astrology but, after that, what should you learn next?

Ascendant Sign

The second thing you need to learn is your Ascendant sign. This is likely to be different to your Sun sign although it could be the identical.

You will only know your Ascendant sign if you cast your chart.

Moon Sign

The third fact you need to discover is your Moon sign. Again, you will have to cast your chart to find this out.

Your Moon sign is likely to be in a different sign both to your Sun sign and even to your Ascendant sign, but it could be the same.

Where to Get Your Birth Chart

If you do not yet have a copy of your birth chart, there are three pieces of information that you will need.

  • Your birth time
  • Your birth date
  • Your birth place (the city and country)

For quick information go here to calculate your chart.

Alternatively, if you want your full birth chart one page diagram calculated by me as a PDF go here.

The Holy Trinity

These three pieces of astrological information, your Ascendant sign, your Sun sign, and your Moon sign, are known as the holy trinity, the triad or the triumvirate of your chart.

They are always listed in this order of importance; Ascendant, Sun, Moon (and yes, your ascendant is more important than your Sun). 

If you are an aspiring astrologer, and if you attend an astrology conference, you will be given a badge with your name. There will be a space for you to write the three main parts of your chart listed on it, your Ascendant, your Sun, and your Moon.

For example, my top three or Holy Trinity would be listed as; Leo, Leo, Scorpio. This is because my Ascendant is in Leo, my Sun is in Leo, and my Moon is in Scorpio.

Your Ascendant, Sun, and Moon can each be in any one of the twelve zodiac signs.

Combinations

Let us have a quick look at the numbers.

The Ascendant has the possibility of being in any one of the twelve signs, the Sun has the possibility of being in any one of the twelve signs, and the Moon has the possibility of being in any one of the twelve signs.

Therefore, 12 × 12 × 12 = 1728 possible combinations of Ascendant, Sun, and Moon.

This detail is huge and speaks to the complexities that can be found within an astrology chart, but there is a simpler way.


Polarity

In astrology there are two polarities active and passive. They can also be referred to as masculine or feminine, or positive (+) or negative (-).

The twelve zodiac signs are either in one polarity or the other. 

The active signs are; Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius. The passive signs are; Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, and Pisces.

Let’s look at some examples of polarity. 

If you have your Ascendant in Aries, your Sun in Virgo and your Moon in Pisces your polarity converts to: active, passive, passive or (+, -, -).

If you have an Aquarius ascendant (+), your Sun is in Gemini (+), and your Moon is in Libra (+), you are active (+, +, +).

8 Combinations

In the scenario of active and passive signs, as regards to your chart’s holy trinity, there are only eight possible combinations.

The three are always listed in the sequence; Ascendant, Sun, Moon.

The ratio is always active:passive (+ : – ).

 + + +             3:0       100% active

 + + –              2:1       More active than passive.

 + – +             2:1       More active than passive.

 – + +              2:1       More active than passive.

 – – +                1:2       More passive than active.

 – + –                1:2       More passive than active.

 + – –                1:2       More passive than active.

  – – –                0:3       100% passive.

Some More Examples

Ascendant       Sun                  Moon  

Libra               Gemini            Pisces               + + – 

Aquarius         Sagittarius       Virgo               + + –

Leo                  Aries                Taurus            + + –

They are 216 possible combinations that are active, active, passive (+, +, -). But only eight possible combinations.

The use of polarity in the holy trinity of your chart is way to simplify what is a complex subject, astrology.

Spend some time analyzing your family’s and friends charts to see polarity at work.

Of course, there are many more interesting things about astrology charts that you could learn. 

Aspiring Astrologer Activity

I love providing you with aspiring astrologer activities.

This initiative is similar to “next steps” and the activities give you some ideas on what to do with the information you have just gathered.

Step one:         Your Sun sign.

Step two:         Your Ascendant sign.

Step three:       Your Moon sign.

Step four:        Write your polarity combination (Ascendant, Sun, Moon).

Step five:        Holy trinity polarity (only eight possible combinations), (?, ?, ?).

Share your polarity combination with us in this quick anonymous survey.

I will revisit this post every six months at the equinoxes.

The equinoxes occur twice a year the first equinox is around March 21st and the second equinox is around September 21st.

Have a prosperous day,
