Some of the links here are places online that I have been going to for years, while some are relatively new and others are just more or less basic reference. And then some sites just look cool. However, like many of our friends already know, we don’t always agree with them.
I will link to those people and places that I generally agree with and disagree with as well. Different perspectives make for lively conversations and learning opportunities. Astrology is such a vast area of study that no one can ever really learn it all (a special thank you to Jennifer Hoffman for reminding me of this…). There are many great online astrology resources out there, so if you find a site that should be included in this list then please let me know…and continue reading
From here on (August 2014) it will be necessary for a particular site to link back to SignsInLife in some fashion if the request for the link is solicited by the webmaster, site owner, writer for the site, etc. If I find the site on my own accord–and want to link to it, then I will without requiring a link back–that is my choice and this is my site, after all I’m the one paying for it!
However, please be prepared that I may be unable to link to the site requested at all, depending on the quality of free astrology or metaphysical related content. This is, of course, all at my discretion. This is only fair to the astrology community and to the reader. I will refrain from linking to profit-only driven astrology sites with high amounts of advertisements, many of which are just selling generic and/or false astrology reports and predictions.
The links posted here are in no particular order. Enjoy!
AND A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU TO Paula Hill of Strategic Online Solutions. Thanks for helping to make this site look great again!!!

Four Pillars Calculator–You will get your Four Pillars chart as well as your luck cycle. This one is based on the Lunar Calendar. You will need to enter your True Local Time of Birth, a.k.a Local Apparent Time or Sundial Time in order to get the correct hour pillar. If you were born close to midnight, then the day pillar could be an issue as well if you are not using the LAT as mentioned above. Thanks to Beryl Consulting for making this available! There is much more to do on this site as well, so check them out.
Elements of Style with Feng Shui (YouTube link) by Kelly Joy Freeman. Kelly is a Certified Feng Shui Professional and understands how businesses and homes thrive under the right energetic principles, based on Feng Shui. I have included her link here because Feng Shui has everything to do with the right steps that people can take with regard to adverse astrological influences. In the East, and especially in China, this is well known and understood. The same is true for Indian culture (for Hindu/Vedic astrology or “jyotish,” the Feng Shui equivalent there is known as Vastu Shastra or “science of construction.”). Read my comments below about the International Feng Shui Association under Astrology Organizations. Seek Kelly out for excellent Feng Shui advice for your home or business!
Earth School: [Update: Nov 2014: Earth School is currently in a transition mode from the previous facility. We are told that it will reopen soon in the DFW area] Education Facility, Meditation Center & Spiritual Holistic Retail Store in Ft. Worth, TX owned by Castle Hill. I really enjoy the concept of the Earth School and I think that you will too. Classes of all types throughout most of the day as well as Meditations, Yoga instruction, Qi Gong, Reiki, Unexplained Phenomena (Philoso Phenomena with Daniel J.), Movie nights plus more classes and meetups are being added all of the time. Check out the Earth School Store as well as Earth School Publications and tell Castle that I sent you! BTW I will start hosting an every other week Tues night Astrology Meetup here beginning on Feb 11th, 2014 from 8pm to 9pm!
Calculate Your BaZi by Feng Shui Village (Helene Weber): This is what a Four Pillars chart traditionally looks like. If you know your True Local Time of birth (Sun Dial Time) then you can plug that time into the calculator and get your actual hour pillar and an accurate day pillar, which will give you your day stem or self element (daymaster). The months and years in this calculator are based on the Chinese Solar months. I use the Lunar calendar for personal charts, so there will many times be a difference. You can also see the luck cycle, which may or may not be accurate for you. Again, this will depend on the calendar that you are using for the Bazi or Four Pillars analysis that you are working with. Contact me through the Contact page and I may be able to give you your Four Pillars chart in the Lunar calendar as a complimentary gift. Ask me for details.

Bill obtained his BS and MBA degrees from New York University and has worked in research and investments since 1972. He has been associated with the Value Line Investment Survey and Paine Webber in New York.

Cycles Research LLC is registered with the SEC as an investment advisor.” There’s a handful of useful reports, articles, interviews and videos. Bill provides serious investment research services. He is the author of the outstanding research work, The Predictive Power of Eclipse Paths.
The Astrology Center of America–Astrology Books and more. An outstanding astrology and tarot book store owned and operated by astrologer David Roell. He will help you find what you are looking for. His newsletters are great as well and are a great free resource of astrological wisdom. I refrain from endorsing any or all of Dave’s views on the astrology books that he sells–be warned as you may find his reviews extremely amusing, cynical and/or controversial. (I recently learned of Dave’s passing on July 27, 2014–he will truly be missed. Here is the link to his Obituary and Guestbook and a few passing thoughts from astrologer Eric Francis). Many thanks to you Dave, you will be missed and you were truly a great Friend in Astrology!
Sabian Assembly–With Continuous Activity since October 17th, 1923. “In search for competent rather than easy answers to the problems of life.” This is the group founded by Dr. Marc Edmund Jones. If you’ve been around the astrology world for a while, you’ve probably read or at least are aware of any number of his books, one important book titled, “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology.” Briefly, there is a symbol for each of the 360 degrees of the tropical zodiac. Find you natal Sun, Moon and Ascendant, etc–you may be surprised at what the symbols have to say to you. The symbols are about deeper meaning and you can use them with just about all of your astrology work. Also see Diana E. Roche’s “The Sabian Symbols: A Screen of Prophecy” for further useful information on how to use the symbols. As an added bonus, you get to see the original hand-pencilled notes of Dr. Jones.
Morinus. Free astrology software. Morinus focuses primarily on traditional Western astrology techniques. Here we have correct calculations of Primary Directions. Astrology links as well. The author has linked to a particularly interesting essay titled The Fallacy of trans-Saturnian Planets by Shyamasundara Dasa. You will have to manually click on the next page at the top of each section to continue reading the essay, there are 4 pages in all. Here is one point of view that I mostly disagree with and yet I am linking to it as I promised above. The argument that S. Dasa describes is actually more than a few topics. It seems as though his thoughts and feelings concerning the outer planets, asteroids, the trans-Neptunians of the Uranian/Symmetrical system, etc., had been building for some time prior to the writing of this essay. Is there room for more than one astrology on planet Earth (besides Vedic)? It would seem that for S. Dasa that answer is an emphatic NO.
There is plenty of research in the West regarding the efficacy of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in every area of astrology, including natal, horary, mundane, etc. One would only need to consult the research journals and various publications of the American Federation of Astrologers, National Council of Geocosmic Research or the International Society for Astrological Research, as well as the many thousands of books proving that the planets and asteroids work (Magi Astrology comes to mind). One recent NCGR journal essay by Jagdish Maheshri (Earthquake Prediction Model) showed the positive correlations of outer planetary effects on earthquake activity. S. Dasa does make some good points, however, on the distinction between the graha and loki in Vedic astrology and this is a valid point within the context of practicing within the rules and traditions of Vedic astrology. Who can disagree with that? It is when we present several arguments against a particular astrological practice or practices that are essentially unrelated to our initial, core concern that can be troubling and confusing. It is OK, however, to vent (within reason) and we sure cannot fault anyone for that.
Planet Watcher – Current Transiting Positions in Astrology Regrettably, I had to remove the planetwatcher tool from the sidebar of the site because of some compatibility issues with WordPress and the various browsers out there today, however, that’s OK because here is the link! You can see current as well as upcoming transits by simply looking on the left hand side of the page. You can click through by the hour, day, month and year both forwards and backwards through time. This is incredibly useful if you don’t own astrology software or ephemerides.
Linda Goodman Lively forums here including astrology and other metaphysical topics in the memory of Linda Goodman. Have you ever had the sense that the author of a book was speaking directly to you? Her books are what really started the astrology fire in me and so I must thank her for that. Must reads are Linda Goodman’s Sun Signs, Love Signs and Star Signs.
White Dragon Consulting. This is the site for Jerry King, whom I rely most heavily on for information and techniques regarding the Chinese Four Pillars of Destiny. His books are the most comprehensive on the topic of the Four Pillars written today, in English. Here is Jerry King’s Amazon Author Page. His titles include the recently released Four Pillars of Destiny: Unlocking the Mysteries of Life Vol. III and Four Pillars of Destiny: The Ten Gods Handbook Vol. IV. Simply put, his books are a must if you are studying the Chinese Four Pillars or Ba Zi. With any luck, we will soon have the pleasure of hosting Jerry for an Advanced Four Pillars of Destiny Workshop in the near future in the Dallas area. Be sure to contact this site to express you interest in a Four Pillars workshop! (updated 12/25/13).
Classical BaZi and Contemporary ZWDS From the Introduction: “I’m a farmer, not a master, and if you call me master Trey, I will hit you with my spade, well, just kidding.
I started this blog with the intention of sharing classical BaZi knowledge to non Chinese literate enthusiasts. Translating classical Chinese to English is quite challenging to me as I did not study Chinese (mandarin) in my schooling days. I learn the language from reading comic books and singing karaoke and I managed to pick it up with the help of my friends, family and dictionaries. Classical Chinese is a very difficult language and combined with the cryptic texts of the old books, interpretation becomes very difficult. So please forgive me if you find the translations erroneous or the interpretation incorrect.”
I have not spent much time here as of this writing (Feb/2014) but the site seems to have a lot to offer. Can’t wait to spend some more time here, though, so far so good!
Malvin Artley–Astrology Bridging East and West – Artley is the author of The Imperial Astrologer among several other books and articles. If you own Solar Fire, you can use The Imperial Astrologer within Solar Fire. Take a look at his site; you will find various articles on both the Eastern and Western traditions.
Diana Garland Astrology – Horoscopes – Articles – News – Community. I was asked to link to this site and am glad to do it. There’s an online ephemeris under the “Tools” tab at the top. Diana also does a video along with monthly horoscopes which is a nice touch. There are those kinds of astrologer’s who can “squeeze blood from a turnip,” as the old saying goes, and I would consider good Sun Sign astrologer’s to be of this type. I think that there’s certainly a grain of truth when it comes to Sun Signs, more especially so when combined with the Chinese animal year (Suzanne White’s idea). Browse over the the articles and links here as well, there is something for everyone.
Ambient Astrology by Kate Petty. From the site description: “Monthly list of planetary antiscia and astrology articles. Available for personal consultation, tutoring and mentorship, lectures, workshops, and design services.” Kate uses a variety of techniques and methods in her astrological analysis. Be sure to read Kate’s antiscia description as well as her articles. Interesting stuff. As it turns out, we both gave a lecture at UAC in 2012 on the same day.
The Uranian Astrology Institute by Blake Finley (presumably). I stumbled upon this site looking for a basic definition for “planetary pictures” from the understanding of the original teachings of Alfred Witte of the Hamburg School. What I found was a lot more: many interesting and info packed articles about the methods attributed to Uranian astrology and the Hamburg School with articles and lessons by Ruth Brummund as well. This site also offers The Aureas Special Uranian Program. If you are looking for general information and/or more in-depth views on Uranian Astrology and much more, then you have come to the right place. Take your time here, as this site is quite extensive.
Penelope Publications’ UranianAstrologer.com: Books & Tools for Beginning & Advanced Astrologers. This is where I received my discounted copy of Alfred Witte’s Rules for Planetary Pictures: The Astrology of Tomorrow as well as a few dials to work with as part of a private ongoing Uranian astrology class here in the DFW area. You will find Uranian and Cosmobiology books, lessons, dials and more on this site. (A very kind and generous Harmburg school trained astrologer is teaching the class. Contact me about this should you be interested in future classes).
Hamburg Astrology School according to Mark B. Anstendig. Anstendig recalls his personal conversations with Reinhold Ebertin regarding Ebertin’s eventual return to Hamburg School methods. He discusses the use of Hamburg School Houses, rectification and more. A basic black and white text site, however, Anstendig’s personal accounts may be of interest if you are investigating Uranian methods.
An Interpretation of the Major and Lesser Dignities In Traditional Astrology by Andrew Bevan – I found this good article on the essential dignities while looking online for information about he participating triplicities (Dorothean participating triplicity rulers). Here is the Skyscript thread introducing the topic on participating triplicities. Lee Lehman makes a comment in the thread as well and is very much worth reading on the 2nd page. Part of her comment consisted of the idea that we have to be careful when using the same astrological techniques on natal interpretation, horary and electional work.
Robert P. Blaschke–Earthwalk School of Astrology Robert passed away (1/18/2011). This is one of the most impactful astrologers whose books I have ever had the pleasure of reading. The late Blaschke lays down a foundational and interpretive framework that you can follow through his Astrology: A Language of Life series. He discovered the 1:13:27 Mystic Time Ratio or theory of time progression cycles (1, secondary progressions (physical plane), 13, tertiary progressions(emotional plane) and 27, minor progressions (mental plane)). According to Blaschke, you can take your Minor Progressed Moon and examine the degree that it is in everyday (since it moves 1 degree each day) and then equate that to the appropriate Sabian Symbol as a meditation point. His books are dense and yet readable, highly recommended for your astrology studies.
The AstroHerbalist-Lisa Allen, MH Astrology, Herbalism, Classes, Flower Essences, Energy Healing and more. Lisa has many more astrology links on the right of the home page. Just click around. Thanks, Lisa, for having your site as an astrology resource on the Web!
Bruce Scofield and Barry C. Orr–One Reed Publications Bruce Scofield Ph.D. is the author of Astrological Chart Calculations: An Outline of Conventions and Methodology, The Circuitry of the Self: Astrology and the Developmental Model and co-author of another favorite of mine, How to Practice Mayan Astrology: The Tzolkin Calendar and Your Life Path. Should you be interested in getting certified in Western astrology, I highly recommend that you obtain a copy of Astrological Chart Calculations as mentioned above. This book was extremely helpful to me in getting through the NCGR-PAA Level I exam. Bruce did mention recently (June, 2013) that a new edition of Astrological Chart Calculations was on its way soon.
Ronnie Gale Dreyer is an accomplished astrologer, teacher and translator. She practices both Western and Vedic astrology. She is the author of Vedic Astrology: A Guide to the Fundamentals of Jyotish, among many other titles. Sign up for her newsletter or periodic astrology webinars.
The Uranian Society. The Uranian Society became the first Special Interest Group (SIG) of NCGR in May of 1985. Past audio recordings of lectures, newsletters and articles are available here. Take a look at the “Midpoint Corner.”
Planet Pulse Daily Horoscope Videos with Jeff Jawer and Rick Levine. We were lucky enough to have Jeff for our 2011 ASNT annual weekend workshop. Jeff is a prolific “explainer” of astrology. Rick created one of the few DVD’s that I am aware of on astrology, Quantum Astrology: Science, Spirit and Our Place in the Cycles of History. This DVD is a must watch for any serious astrology student. You can find one of Jeff’s astrology columns in The Mountain Astrologer as well.
Treehouse Mountain: Astrology of the Asteroids by Martha Lang-Wescott. At the top of the page, you can click on “Predictive” or “Index” and read from there. Martha uses Uranian methods with many asteroids. I once wrote to her asking for her advice and her answer was to simply “learn how to use the dials.” So, I am doing that now, along side several other projects. I have two of her outstanding books as well. The artwork is is beautiful, too. To me, these types of systems will either grab you or push you away. I think that you have to be ready for them, in a sense.
Harish Johari’s Sanatan Society. The late Johari is the author of one of the most useful astrology/numerology books that I have ever read: Numerology: With Tantra, Ayurveda and Astrology: A Key to Human Behavior. I cannot understate the usefulness of this book, it is a must have on your shelf. Why? It’s sheer accuracy. You could even use numerology to help you to rectify an astrology chart. For example, if you know that someone was born in the early morning before sunrise but are absolutely stumped on the time, read the psychic number for the day of birth as well as the day before. If the person resonates primarily with the day before, there is a high likelihood that the person was born at least two hours before sunrise on that date. In other words, there is a cutoff for the influence of the psychic number of the previous date. For example, let’s say we have someone who was born at 1am standard time for any given time zone on January 6th of any year. They would still fall under the psychic influence of the number 5 ruled by Mercury and would be a “psychic 5.” Someone else born on that same date but within two hours of sunrise would be a psychic 6. You will have to check your astrology software or internet databases to get the sunrise time for the day in question.
Astro Dispatch, “Astrology Around the Web” by astrologer Elsa Panizzon. “…a constantly updating source of astrology-themed news and commentary.” This site is fun to browse through. It seems to be a site that networks together various astrology blogs (Tropical/Western). Mostly intermediate level stuff but good nonetheless. Elsa has her own blog as well and seems to write everyday about astrology–which is truly a daunting and admirable task.
Earth Signs article–Lost Earth? by Philip Sedgwick. Did you know that you can use the Earth itself in your chart? Sedgwick is the author that introduced me to Heliocentric astrology with the book, The Sun at the Center: A Primer on Heliocentric Astrology nearly 20 years ago. Of course, you can plug the Earth into your geocentric chart as well–it is the point exactly opposite your natal Sun.
Stephen Arroyo Here is the Amazon author page for Stephen Arroyo. He is the author of Astrology, Karma & Transformation: The Inner Dimensions of the Birth Chart, Stephen Arroyo’s Chart Interpretation Handbook: Guidelines for Understanding the Essentials of the Birth Chart and Exploring Jupiter: Astrological Key to Progress, Prosperity & Potential among others. Arroyo’s books are must have’s for the astrology student at any level. Surprisingly or not, I was unable to find a credible site for Arroyo.
Joanne Wickenburg is the author of Your Hidden Powers: Intercepted Signs and Retrograde Planets and The Spiral of Life: Unlocking Your Potential with Astrology. She hosted the ASNT Annual Weekend Workshop for 2010 and we were glad to have her as she has been a practicing astrologer for over 30 years and is a founder of Kepler College.
Kenneth D. Miller–Celestial Intelligencer. I have the pleasure of attending a few STAR conferences with Kenneth who is an accomplished astrology scholar and counseling astrologer. Thanks, Kenneth for your suggestions and insights throughout the years. Seek out Kenneth for Vedic astrology services.
Dr. David Twicken’s site, HealingQi.com. Dr. Twicken is the author of Five Element Chinese Astrology Made Easy, Chinese Medical Astrology and Introduction to Qi Men Dun Jia, among others. I have found his Five Element book extremely useful for learning about the Four Pillars and am eager to read Chinese Medical Astrology. His Five Element book is the simplest introduction to the Four Pillars that I have found. Thank you Dr. Twicken.
Lily Chung is the author of the first comprehensive book in English (The Path To Good Fortune: The Meng, 1997) that explains The Four Pillars of Destiny (Ba Zi) in an adequate way. Here is the link to her latest title, The Truth of Ups and Downs: Cosmic Inequality. As Chung explains, this book is a revised version of introductory material to The Path To Good Fortune. I cannot recommend her work enough, although it is only for the very serious students of this method of ancient Chinese divination.
Alan Oken is the author of Alan Oken’s Complete Astrology: The Classic Guide to Modern Astrology and Soul Centered Astrology: A Key to Your Expanding Self among others. These are must have books for getting through esoteric astrology, which is a completely different system than the now “traditional” (actually modern or post-modern) astrology that we are currently aware of. He has a great way of explaining concepts and ideas in astrology that might otherwise go right over your head. You can subscribe to his free newsletters, read astrology articles and buy previous lectures. Alan writes a once a month column in Dell Horoscope which I highly recommend as well.
Cycles Research Institute–For the Interdisciplinary Study of Cycles. Much more than astrological cycles, some info on Gann, The Mars Effect, Lunar Saros and more.
J. Lee Lehman Lee is a great speaker and teacher and has a way of getting to the root of classical Western astrology that few others can. There are plenty of resources on her site. Her horary book, “The Martial Art of Horary Astrology,” is a must if you are at all interested in pursuing horary. One definition for horary is “by the hour,” meaning the moment of the question. Obtaining the correct time that the question is asked to the astrologer is critical to getting an accurate chart for the question–and is the first step in divining an accurate answer. I have hired Lee myself and can personally attest to her ability. Her horary workshop at STAR 2010 was outstanding as well, we all learned so much.
Stephanie Jean Clement is a former president of the American Federation of Astrologers and a past presenter to ASNT’s September 2012 weekend workshop. We were glad to have her here. You can read about her on her site. She is one of the few astrologers that I have met that can explain planet centered astrology and it’s implications. She is the author of Charting Your Spiritual Path with Astrology, Power of the Midheaven, Mapping your Birthchart, Aspect Patterns, and more. (Update: It is with sad regret to inform the readers of this site that Stephanie has passed–here is a link to more info on this.) Stephanie you will be missed and it was a pleasure meeting with you for the few times that we were able to have a conversation about astrology.
Church of Light, The Religion of the Stars founded by C. C. Zain. Zain was the first to pioneer Minor progressions (1 Lunar Month to 1 Year technique) among other techniques like Astrodynes. Here is another link to their e-books on astrology.
Donna Henson is the author of Degrees of the Zodiac Symbolized, Vertex: The Third Angle and The Vertex Report on the astrology software program Kepler by Cosmic Patterns. She is certified at the highest levels in astrology with the American Federation of Astrologers (AFA), The International Society for Astrological Research (ISAR) and The National Council for Astrological Research (NCGR). She is a founding member of The Astrological Society of North Texas (ASNT) and has been teaching and practicing astrology for over 40 years. She has taught me how to calculate an astrology chart by hand–and this is no easy task I assure you. Contact her for a consultation or astrology lessons at donnajeanhenson(at)yahoo.com or follow the link above. Find her previous astrology articles within past ASNT newsletters
Athena’s Web by Don Cerow. Don is well versed in the ancient stellar myths. Lots of archives. Don is one of the most knowledgeable, honorable and humble astrologers that I have met. Check him out, you won’t be disappointed.
Stariel.com by Anne Beversdorf. There are some great articles here. Anne is an outstanding counseling astrologer who uses Western, Vedic and Uranian astrology. Highly recommended. Articles, podcasts, newsletters.
Robin Armstrong. Canadian astrologer and author of the 1997 essay, Degrees of the Zodiac and the I Ching from the highly recommended book Eastern Systems for Western Astrologers. This is one of the most inspiring books that I own. I really enjoyed reading the shorter essay format for the topics that are described in the book. In particular, Bill Watson’s essay on the Four Pillars of Destiny is truly a gem as he explains the who, what, why, where and how of this system. You will not be disappointed in the this book or any of the essays in it. As far as I am aware, Robin Armstrong pioneered the integration of the I Ching and Western astrology concepts. You can read about his writings on his site.
Merriman Market Analyst by Ray Merriman. Financial astrology, articles and news. Ray has been trading and doing astrology for many years. I recently attended a one day seminar with him and was blown away to say the least. We should be placing just as much emphasis on the understanding and timing of market cycles as we do on astrology. President of ISAR from 1995-2001.
Four Moons Astrology by Donna Woodwell. Donna is quite engaged in the online world of astrology and metaphysics. You will find her astrology blogs as well as information about her classes, events and consultations on her site. Thanks, Donna for inviting me to speak on The Dead Astrologers Society radio show.
Pemo Theodore helped me to set up this WordPress site originally back in the fall of 2011 (she has a solid background in astrology and astrology in the online world). Read more about her other projects in the Start Up World too. Find her at Ezebis

Astrology News Service. Articles, opinions, interviews, editorials, etc. Well put together and informative. Send the skeptics here first!
The Magi Society. This is the official Magi Society website. You can download their free mini-book which is a shortened version of Magi Astrology: The Key to Success in Love and Money. I highly recommend their work and research. While astrology as a whole contains many methodologies, techniques, philosophies and applications, one thing is for sure: the aspects work! The results of The Magi Society’s work on aspects varies considerably in some areas when compared to contemporary and traditional astrological thought. Their work on aspects and planetary meanings (among other astrological topics) is based on solid research which can be found in the many examples throughout their articles and books.
Planet Waves Daily Astrology & Adventure by Eric Francis. This is a subscription site but you can get some astrology articles and commentary free to your email. I think that this site is one of the more well put together astrology sites out there. Eric does an astrology radio show as well and was conducting interviews with astrologers at UAC 2012 in New Orleans. Certainly worth a look.
Traditional Astrology Radio by Chris Brennan. There are some traditional astrology articles here and recordings of various interviews with Chris and Robert Zoller and Demetra George among others. Here is the Blog Talk Radio page for WTAR Traditional Astrology Radio. Chris was the last radio host for WTAR on Blog Talk Radio which ended in 2011, although all of the previous recordings are still there to listen to. Here, we have a goldmine of astrological information to listen to.
Considerations was an astrology quarterly published from 1983 through 2006 by Ken Gillman. Follow the link and you will see there an index of issues with author and article title information. I can’t hardly believe that this great resource is free but it is.
The Mountain Astrologer. Truly a great astrology magazine, I wish that I had been subscribing much earlier! The astrologers that run the magazine are outstanding people as well. I currently own almost every single issue thanks to an astrology enthusiast who was recently selling his collection. Thank you Tem and the The Mountain Astrologer staff, for an outstanding magazine. Digital subscriptions as well.
Serennu is a free online ephemeris and eclipse finder among other things. This site is a great way to find the position of the asteroids and centaurs as well as the planets both new and old. Very helpful especially if you don’t own professional astrology software.

It is administered as a public service without charge and is available to anyone who wants information about A*C*G*.
Dell Horoscope–“The World’s Leading Astrology Magazine.” There are plenty of easily digestible articles for the layperson as well as the intermediate astrologer. The articles and features with Dell are geared toward the beginner in astrology, however there is usually something for everyone. Sun-sign prediction.
Horoscope Guide–“The Last Word in Astrology.” I usually get this magazine alongside Dell when I can at Barnes & Noble. I think that the quality of writing is certainly present and there is usually something for everyone as is with other astro-zines. Sun-sign prediction.
The Astro-Databank Wiki Project. From the site “The Astro-Databank wiki publishes the huge collection of astrological data collected by Lois Rodden and her cooperators, so that these data can be used for astrological research, for astrological publications and for serious astrological discussion.”
Astrodienst or astro.com. Lots of info plus you can get a web based chart print out. Click on “charts & data” on the right.
The Astro Investigators. headed by Alphee Lavoie, he also owns and operates AIR Software for astrologers (financial, research, rectification). They are astrologers “dedicated to the scientific scrutiny long held astrological concepts. Our home base is West Hartford, CT, USA and we work with colleagues spread throughout the world.” This is also the site for AIR astrology and astrology research and investment software as well as an online interactive astrology school.

Gary is also well versed in the various mysteries of Mercury and Venus retrograde. Check him out.
Nick Dagan Best a.k.a. “The Human Ephemeris.” I had the opportunity to meet Nick at the NCGR 2010 conference. What we saw there was a presentation on Mars retrograde and its effects throughout military history. His new book is titled, “URANU.S.A,” which you can find on his site. His work is carefully researched and easily digestible mundane astrology at its finest.
What is the Ecliptic? by EarthSky.org: Science News-Great Photos-Sky Alerts. There are a couple of good images here explaining the apparent path that the Sun takes across the sky as well as the Moon’s Nodes. Also, stay up to date with night time celestial events by checking in with EarthSky from time to time.
Astrolabe. Astrology software including the popular Solar Fire Gold 8 (one of the main programs that I am currently working with). You can call the staff at Astrolabe with any questions that you may have about your software.
Cosmic Patterns Software. Now merged with Matrix Software as of July, 2013. This is the software designed by David Cochrane who is also founder of the Avalon School of Astrology in Florida. The Sirius program is, “the most comprehensive astrology program in the world.” David is also at the forefront of astrological research concentrating on harmonics and wave theory. Here is a link to David’s e-book, The First 32 Harmonics: A Qualitative Research Study. David, thank you for your generosity and your time, it was great to finally meet you at UAC 2012.
Matrix Software. Now merged with Cosmic Patterns as of July, 2013. Founded by Michael Erlewine. Home of the WinStar series of astrological programs (I use his Tibetan Astrology program quite regularly). Here is a link to a long list of astrology articles on the Matrix site. Michael has been extremely generous with his free e-books on astrology; Tibetan Astrology, Astrology of the Heart, Astrology’s Mirror and How to Learn Astrology, just to name a few. There are other great items here as well. Michael, thanks for your kind words and generosity.
Intrepid Astrological Software by The Astrological Bureau of Ideas or ABOI. Jeffrey Sayer Close and Stephanie Clement have teamed up to bring out a unique astrology software package. This software generates forward and converse planetary arc directions and planet centered charts with selected moons available.
Seven Stars Astrology, by Ant Cap, a site dedicated primarily to traditional methods. Example Charts. This is a good classic astrology resource and a place to go to for discussing the ancient techniques. There is some great material on the 12th parts or dwads and how they were used in ancient Western astrology. A significant contribution to astrology on the web.
The Australian Academy of Feng Shui founded by Vic Ketis. I attended Vic’s presentation at UAC 2012, East-West track. Thank you Vic for the great info and outstanding presentation on Chinese Astrological cycles.
Right Place Consulting with Jim Shawvan. Jim is an Certified Astrological Professional (CAP) in the San Diego, CA area and a very kind and knowledgeable man. Electional, Horary, Karmic, Natal, Predictive, Relationships, Relocation and Travel astrology. Jim it was good talking with you at UAC 2012.
Edgar Yung (Lok Tin) Feng Shui & Chinese Astrology This site has some interesting articles. I was particularly inspired by the results of one of Edgar’s Feng Shui consultations where a family was finally able to conceive after modifying their house, here is the link to that article. Edgar goes into the basics of Chinese astrology as well including Zi Wei Dou Shu or Purple Rose Calculation.
Bazi Diary by Chris Chan. This site has some decent articles on Ba Zi or Four Pillar Analysis. Although the site appears to be abandoned or no longer updated, I’m going to leave the link here on my page as there is still some good analysis here, especially since there is so little written on the Four Pillars in English.
Yi Bazi is a Ba Zi blog. This site has some relevant information on it and it looks great, although it may have been abandoned as well as the above link appears to have been. Again, since there is so little information out there on Four Pillar analysis in English I am going to link to it here as long as the site is there. There is some good analysis in this blog, so check it out if you are interested in the Four Pillars.
The Astrological Society of North Texas or ASNT. Monthly meetings in the DFW metroplex on the 2nd Sunday of the month. A nationally renowned astrologer will present a two-day workshop once a year. Find the Past ASNT Newsletters here, they contain a wealth of astrology articles, views and insights, in particular from Donna Henson among others.
The Magi Society. This is their home page. You can read many articles as well as download their free mini book, which is their 3rd book sans the natal planetary cookbook combos. Yes–study the Magi techniques and if you are intrigued–then buy the software. You will need to get the heliocentric upgrade at a minimum. I do recommend purchasing at least their 1st and 3rd book as you will have a good foundation to start on from these and you will have the natal delineations that I mentioned earlier. From the Book Reviews section in the Feb 2014 Horoscope Guide by Kenneth Irving, “…and if anyone now reading this remembers the reviews I did of the Magi books, you’ll know that this is definitely worth the read, and of course the price is just the icing in the cake…[and]…So very clearly, my advice is to grab this one, and in fact it is worth printing out all 179 pages so you don’t have to read it on a PC screen.” Really, the best thing to do is just buy the 3rd book! And I wouldn’t recommend buying the software if it wasn’t worth it. It makes practicing the Magi methods much, much easier than attempting to use other software programs.
(Update: The 2013 STAR conference has been cancelled and as far as I am aware STAR will be no more. Maybe it will come back next year, we will see. I was truly disappointed at the news of this). The South Texas Astrology Retreat is a once a year retreat for astrologers interested in traditional astrology, i.e. Hellenistic, Medieval, Renaissance, etc. Past speakers have been Joseph Crane, Chris Brennan, Lee Lehman, Robert Hand and for 2012, Demetra George. I have personally attended three (Lehman, Hand and George). STAR is an alternative to the large astrology conference model and is held at the Margaret Austin Center in Chappell Hill, TX.
The Astrological Society of Austin or ASA. Monthly astrology meetings on the 3rd Friday of the month in the Austin area. I presented here in 2010 and will again in April 2014–a smart and well read astrology group for sure.
The Houston Astrological Society: This is the link to their Facebook Page as they don’t have an official website as of yet. They are a new group as of summer 2013. There are several long time astrologers on the board, astrologer Ginger McCord is one of them. She is the editor of the extremely successful monthly Indigo Sun Magazine, which has a wide regional circulation in Texas. Be sure to check them out!
The Rosicrucian Fellowship–An Association of Christian Mystics. Perhaps you have read Max Heindel’s Message of the Stars. You can download all of his books for free in e-book format. It may come as a shock to some that you can have Christian beliefs and still practice astrology–who would have thunk it? There’s free astrology software that you can download as well.
The Church of Light. also, The Religion of the Stars and The Brotherhood of Light. From the site: “Become adept in the use of astrology, mental and spiritual alchemy, the tarot and other related hermetic studies. Use astrological techniques and mental alchemy for improving finances, affectional relations, career and self-esteem.” I think that you may find some of the Church of Light teachings more than useful, but some of that will depend on whether or not you are aligned with certain aspects of their philosophical underpinnings. For example, reincarnation is not a part of COL beliefs. As my understanding goes, the COL was founded by C. C. Zain (Elbert Benjamine) in the 1930’s with one of it’s main purposes to protect astrology from being banished all together by the State of California. This was accomplished by encompassing astrology within the new religion named the Church of Light. All of the COL material is available for download–astrology software is available for purchase.
The International Feng Shui Association. The reason why I’m including this link here is that Chinese Metaphysics (CM) includes the various forms of Chinese astrology, Feng Shui and I-Ching (Yi Jing) among several other important methods and schools of thought. The remedial measures that a Feng Shui Master or practitioner offers are no less important or inseparable than the remedial measures of the Vedic tradition that go hand in hand with Vedic astrology. Our Western tradition is a bit more complicated and ranges anywhere from “It is Thy Fate” of the Hellenistic/Stoic view to the ultra-modern “move to your Jupiter or Venus line.” What are the answers to someone’s difficult life now that the astrologer (of whatever tradition or school of thought) has correctly identified the problem? Feng Shui is but one of those remedies for the CM practitioner.
The National Council for Geocosmic Research or NCGR, is one of the more excellent astrology organizations and one of the largest. Monthly newsletters and bi-annual journals as well as audio recordings from many past conferences. Professional astrology certification. One of the “Big Three.”
The American Federation of Astrologers or AFA is one of the oldest surviving astrology organizations in the U.S. They offer professional astrology certification as well. Online astrology bookstore. One of the “Big Three.” Yearly conferences–I attended the Traditional Astrology conference in Tempe in September of 2011. It was good to see James Holden and to finally meet him. He was doing Traditional Western Astrology before there ever was such an impulse in many of the current, more well known traditional astrologers who are alive today. And he was doing and translating traditional astrology (some of this while at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth) before some of the younger traditional astrologers were even a twinkle in their parent’s eyes. And to top it all off, he was translating these documents in the 1950’s and beyond while residing in the lower part of the rhinestone of the buckle of the Bible Belt in North Texas for many years. Interesting–you might say, but all true nonetheless. Mr. Holden recently passed this year (2013) and he will be missed dearly.
The International Society for Astrological Research or ISAR. Journals, professional astrology certification and past audio from conferences. One of the “Big Three.”
The Organization for Professional Astrology or OPA. Professional astrology certification and training for the aspiring working astrologer. Seems to be a smaller, more tight-knit group of professional astrologers.
The American College of Vedic Astrology or ACVA. Also known as Indian or “Hindu” astrology. Hindu is no longer used to describe this kind of astrology, however. Professional astrology certification.
Council of Vedic Astrology or CVA.
The United Astrology Conference will be held in New Orleans May 24th – 29th, 2012 at the New Orleans Marriott on Canal St. UAC is the world’s largest gathering of astrologers once every four years. Several astrology organizations will be present at UAC, while UAC is sponsored by ACVA, AFAN, CVA, ISAR and NCGR.
AFAN – the Association For Astrological Networking – From the AFAN about page, “AFAN’s global mission is to enhance, protect, and validate the important role astrologers and astrology have in today’s society. Media accountability and public information are top priority, on-going projects for AFAN. Through Media Watch AFAN monitors the press and responds, correcting inaccurate or biased print and electronic media accounts. We vigorously network people with helpful resources and material, including legal information, and the AFAN Legal Information Kit. AFAN’s Legal Information Committee has been extraordinarily successful in changing laws restrictive to the practice of astrology. AFAN works with other organizations and individuals to provide funding for various astrological projects, grants and scholarships. Additionally, AFAN surveys existing sources in astrological education, sponsors International Astrology Day and co-produces with other astrological organizations the United Astrology Conference (UAC). Members are the lifeblood of AFAN, they provide the ideas, energy and the reason for AFAN’s existence.”

Elements of Style with Feng Shui by Kelly Joy Freeman. Kelly is a Certified Feng Shui Professional and understands how businesses and homes thrive under the right energetic principles, based on Feng Shui. I have included her link here because Feng Shui has everything to do with the right steps that people can take with regard to adverse astrological influences. In the East, and especially in China, this is well known and understood. The same is true for Indian culture (for Hindu/Vedic astrology or “jyotish,” the Feng Shui equivalent there is known as Vastu Shastra or “science of construction.”). Read my comments below about the International Feng Shui Association under Astrology Organizations. Seek Kelly out for excellent FS advice for your home or business!

You will be surprised by it’s many beneficial effects, like reduced inflammation, lower blood pressure, joint pain relief, reduction in asthma symptoms, etc. I’ve been using the Stir Wands for a couple of years now. What do they do? They oxygenate, detoxify and hydrate the water. There are clinical studies to back up the claims. Check them out Quantum Age Water–also, be sure to contact or call QAW President David Schneider if you have any questions about the Stir Wands–they are nothing short of amazing.

Fotosearch.com You can search for astrology images here or really images for just about anything for that matter. I just searched “astrology” and they were able to come up with quite a few impressive images. But you do have to pay for each image or spend a certain amount and get several hundred images. Also, check out GoGraph.com as well as CanStockPhoto.com as you will find different images at these sites. I think that the images are high quality in general. There’s something for everyone.
Dr. Robert M. Schoch. Dr. Schoch has appeared on numerous TV shows, magazines and journals concerning ancient civilizations. “In the early 1990s, Dr. Schoch stunned the world with his revolutionary research that recast the date of the Great Sphinx of Egypt to a period thousands of years earlier than its standard attribution. In demonstrating that the leonine monument has been heavily eroded by water despite the fact that its location on the edge of the Sahara has endured hyper-arid climactic conditions for the past 5,000 years, Dr. Schoch revealed to the world that mankind’s history is greater and older than previously believed. His latest research, put forth in his newest book, “Forgotten Civilization: The Role of Solar Outbursts in Our Past and Future,” points to the astronomical cause of the demise of antediluvian civilizations, as well as the scientific and archaeological evidence that supports his conclusions.”
International Association for Near-Death Studies or IANDS (formed in 1978). According to IANDS, “A near-death experience (NDE) is a profound psychological event that may occur to a person close to death or, if not near death, in a situation of physical or emotional crisis. Because it includes transcendental and mystical elements, an NDE is a powerful event of consciousness; it is not mental illness.” I’m excited to announce that IANDS is having its annual conference in San Antonio, TX on September 3rd-6th, 2015 (CEU’s available for counselors, social workers, etc). Also, from one of their board members, ‘If you have ever met and talked with NDEr’s, you know that they are very special people with an intuitive exposure that the rest of us never get. NDE’s are not just about “tunnels of white light”.’
