The Young Astrologer

When I was much younger, I had great interest in the occult and paranormal. When I was 13, for Christmas of 1979, I asked for and got a book called The Compleat Astrologer. I wanted this book because it showed you how to draw up a horoscope as well as providing interpretation guides and planetary tables from 1905 until 1979 - which put it far ahead of any other books on astrology which simply were describptive, but didn't show you how to do it hands on.

I have no crystal ball and I have long dismissed divination, however let us see what the new year brings forth. And may it be good for all of us.

i didn't know that an eagle is also used as a symbol of scorpio. but the description, is pretty much me. hehehe.

happy new year! hope you'll have a great year :)
I read both Sag. and Cap, and I don't seem to be either of theses. I'm my own mix I suppose..being born on the cusp, Dec. 22nd, barely after midnight and into Cap technically. I'm more a product of my genetics and environment/nurture experience.

Happy New Year!

tin-tin: I don’t believe that stuff anymore. There is another page of info I didn’t scan.

MOI: sound like a typical Canadian, not quite sure what we are.

breal: There is one more page of description that I did not scan.

beautiful illustrations! i love all of them! :) i'm scorpio. whoo-hoo!

breal: you will have to wait until I am back in Montreal to scan the other page. I don't believe in astrology, but the descriptions are always written in a warm and fuzzy feel-good way.

acey: I think they are nice too. My favourite was always blue skinned Virgo. I wish I could draw half as nice. A Scorpio, hey? Hmmm, I better watch my back then :P
