Let’s analyze the astrological books, let judge what is good, adding valuable information, helping people to learn, opening our minds and what is useless, ordinary, making us to waste our time.
I think astrology is not something we must just “feel”, just understanding a couple of symbols, ideas and match them to give the results we want. I think who wants to learn astrology must read a lot and study to see if what he is learning is applying in day to day life. There are a lot of people, who call themselves astrologers, who read three or four trash-books, understood some things about the planets, houses etc. and when they are not having results, when their astrology is not working, they are just hiding under all kind of philosophies and metaphysical ideas. It is not a good approach! I don’t say that is someone who knows astrology perfect and he has always results. No! But, when we are not “hitting the target”, let do not hide under those philosophies, let accept that we are not good enough, that we don’t fully understand astrology. Because not astrology or other philosophical ideas are the problem. We are the problem. Astrology is perfect. We are not and we can’t understand everything is happening.
So, in order to improve our skill and our attitude we must read books to see what others are thinking and integrate what is useful in our system.
