Astrology is both a science and an art. It is a symbolic representation of all of the elements- religious, spiritual, emotional, mental and physical, visible and invisible- that exist in the universe and come together in various and diverse combinations to account for individual human beings and the forces that shape and act upon them.
While there are numerous astrology books available, many are decades old and require you to wade through a morass of technical details just to get to the basics. In Learning Astrology, Damian Sharp provides a fun, fresh approach to understanding this ancient art, making it easily accessible to those who are completely new to the subject and/or put off by older, more complicated books. In clear, concise language and an easy-to-follow order, he provides insight into sun signs and planets, houses and aspects and shows us how to actually read an astrological chart, simply and accurately.
And if you want the more technical details, Sharp provides those, too. By the end of the book, you’ll be discussing conjunctions, sextiles, squares, and trines like a pro. Learn astrology from Damian Sharp and become your own astrologer.
