I´ve been looking into Astrology for over two years, I´ve taken classes and read plenty of charts.

I still don´t seem to be improving. No matter how many times I´ll read over angles, signs and houses, the information doesn´t stick.

For example, I stumble over interpretation of 8th house. No matter how much info I read about it. Next chart I read. I´m blank. I thought maybe because I don´t have anything in my 8th, I never cared.

I was told it would take me a long time to learn because my Uranus sits at 22" (Capricorn, ruled by Saturn).

Any tips and tricks that you´ve used to progress? Anyone else feel halted but found a way through?

I once watched in some video, that it’s a Gemini Mars 12th house thing (Vedic).. info in and next day out and don’t remember a thing.

So a good journalist placement, or just information provider.

If you become blank on what to say for something in particular it would help to have a book with descriptions of the important factors of a chart so you can reference it and it´ll probably jog your memory for a few other relevant things.

I suppose it just takes some time. Speaking from personal experience, astrology has been in the general public consciousness for a while, yet the subject didn´t really "stick" for me until summer of last year. It´s a combination of consistent practice, following different astrologers that you may even disagree with just to keep your mind flexible, and also taking breaks. Some days, I don´t want to listen to astrology content, but instead something else like art, music, or perhaps other metaphysical stuff. Eventually, you´ll get that spark again and it will feel great. I also make sure to keep notes. Personally, I use notion.so to keep things organized, and also helpful images like graphs and guides Incase i forget stuff. Probably would be useful for you to have a chart of the house significations, so you have a reference to come back to when you´re blanking. It happens. If you know it takes some time for ideas to make sense, don´t beat yourself up about it. We all learn at our own paces and there´s nothing wrong with you if you just so happen to struggle with Astrology. :3

Maybe it´s just not the right time for you to be focusing on this information. There were times in my life when I looked into something in the occult, such as astrology, and wasn´t able to really absorb or accept the information, so I stopped looking into it at that time. Now is not such a time for me. I am now drinking up the information like I´m dehydrated as hell. So, maybe a break is in order and there is something else you should be developing or working on first? Why is it you want to learn about astrology to begin with?

True. I have notes on my laptop etc but yeah. I should print them off and keep them available. I prefer the physical copy.

Thanks :1:

"how about fuck this shit?"

True. A break might help but I´m not sick of it yet. I still enjoy looking at charts and having my own internal dialogue.

Maybe I should take a break from everything else in life...

Thanks for sharing :1:

"It happens. If you know it takes some time for ideas to make sense, don´t beat yourself up about it."

Never beating myself up about it :1: Just Aries Mercury wants some tips on bypassing the impatience :1: maybe some others ways I haven´t thought of. Physical notes would be a great help for me. Also expanding who I listen to wouldn´t hurt. Thanks again.

" there´s nothing wrong with you if you just so happen to struggle with Astrology. :3"

I´m Leo Moon. There´s nothing wrong with me :4:

"Maybe it´s just not the right time for you to be focusing on this information. "

Possibly, I´ve thought on this. It wasn´t until a post on this forum was talking about progressed moons. I realised that I had the opportunity to finally study it properly when my Moon progressed into Scorpio. Then there were a few other posts relating the same thing. Or other posts I´ve noted stating the same. So possibly the best time to have starting studying? :63:

"So, maybe a break is in order and there is something else you should be developing or working on first?"

Possibly. I do have a lot on my plate at the moment.

"Why is it you want to learn about astrology to begin with?"

Always had an interest. Even as a child. Grew into a background interest until 3 or 4 years ago when I realised there is more knowledge to be gained from the sky. A big spate of shame and a want for personal growth.

know when to step away for a time

and also know when to soft-peddle things for a while.

I´m tired of the m0r0n5 with problems I don´t have yet they like to project them onto me. I think it is called "blame" in English?

Maybe they should return to their fuck1n9 parents and not act as we are responsible. Dumb 4$$3$

Other than such manners, I love this site! :75:

Thank you Petr9 :62: :80:

It helps me also to physically draw circles with a protractor, split it into 12 and write the key words for the houses or for the signs or draw the thema mundi with the planet symbols. There´s some magic to using handwriting in order to commit things to memory.

My ways are:
1. Take a break for two weeks from astrology.
2. Do anything else in astrology that comes easily to me and only after some time come back to topics that are difficult.
3. I am thinking loosely on the archetypes of signs and houses, e.g. how Taurus works in opposition to Scorpio, what connects them and what separates them, etc.




Btw Nutellina, I´d like to reply to your message (I couldn´t write back earlier).

It does seem that there can be certain triggers in your own chart which awaken the passion for astrology. Mine seems to have been my first Saturn return, which I heard is apparently a common thing :25:

Deepen your knowledge, study the patterns. Only way I have found to learn is to really study the houses and planets and signs in depth. Planets will mostly act like their sign and express that in the house they are in.

True. I am more old school. Even in my writings I prefer hand written. Me trying to adapt to laptop screens doesn´t help.

Cheers :15:

Thats how I´ve been going but more and more look to take a break. Your hungry Gemini moon must love the information :1:

Practice practice practice. Even though I have an 8h stellium and virgo rising, I´ve spent tons of hours for years learning this. Astrology isn´t easy, but you get a hang of it. Tip: signs and houses are NOT the same. 8 house is the house of debt,transformation, shared assets etc.

Look into hellenistic astrology to see if it´s more accurate for you
