EXPLORE YOURSELF

Astrology is far more complex than what I have outlined here, but these basic principles let you already have a look at your own birth chart and get a rough idea of  what is at work.   There are many websites that calculate your birth chart for free (I like  Astrodienst.com).  Have fun exploring yourself!
