that I've developed for chart-readings.
These range from simple aids for the beginner to techniques best used by those already conversant with chart interpretation, synastry and the like. Each technique includes instructions for calculation (where applicable) and guidelines for interpretation.
As time - and clarity - permit, I am writing up the various interpretive tools that I have either discovered or created in my 35+ years as a professional astrologer. Some of these are designed to be shared with a client unfamiliar with their horoscope, while others assume a great deal of familiarity with astrology (and philosophy). All have been tested time and time again; it is my hope that they will serve others as well as they have served me.
Useful Astrology Techniques:
This simple technique helps people
'see' their own charts without having
to recognize any particular symbols.
It's just a matter of counting the
number of planets in each quarter
of the chart - and applying a
simple interpretation to the result.

Mercury and Venus Order:
By comparing the sequence in
which the Sun, Mercury, and Venus rise to their degree-sequence we can see
the difference between our habitual approach to experience and what keeps
happening to us.
Moon, Ascendant, and Part of Fortune:
provides a simple means of linking habit, purpose, psychological well-being
and spiritual growth - if you access them in the right order!
By paying attention to the degree order of the planets, we can learn to
transform repetitive patterns into a spiral of personal development.
A little harder to come by, but worth the effort. By gradually increasing the acceptable orb for aspects, this tool reveals the specific orb, aspect, and planetary pair through which every planet is linked directly or indirectly to every other one. This can help explain the tremendous power of an otherwise weak aspect.
Progressions, and Solar Arc:
These three types of timed
development indicate three levels of experience and consciousness. Over the
years, I've found the Solar Arc especially important as the calendar of Fate.
Everybody's favorite question: will this relationship
work? The tools of chart comparison that I've learned work the best and why.
A look at four versions of Degree Symbols: Jones, Kozminsky, Charubel and Sepharial, including a special focus on parsing the images of Jones' "Long Form" (as Elsie Wheeler first envisioned the degrees)
Now that they're easy to calculate, how do we use them? What do they mean? A
