You Can Read Your Birthchart!

There are two things that make learning to read an astrological chart difficult. First, all those strange symbols seem like they would be impossible to memorize. And second, there's all that theory and philosophy that seem to take up most beginner books on astrology.

Those "strange" symbols form the language of astrology. Children learn language by hearing and speaking it; the famous Berlitz language schools even have you begin with total immersion in a foreign language. In famed astrologer Joann Hampar's new book, Astrology for Beginners, you'll learn to understand the language of astrology (and thus how to quickly and easily read your horoscope) without needing any astrological theory. You'll simply learn how to read a chart.

+ No experience with astrology is necessary
+ No complex mathematics
+ No confusing theories
+ Easy, step-by-step instructions
+ Learn to see all important information in a chart

By the time you finish this book you'll be able to give a thorough interpretation of any birthchart, including yours!

The Keys to Chart Interpretation
Most beginning books try to teach you the science of astrology. This one is different. It gives you simple and direct lessons on how to interpret a birthchart—your chart, a friend's chart, anyone's chart. The goal is not to make you an astrologer. Rather, it will simply allow you to interpret a horoscope. No longer will you or your friends have to pay to get someone to read your chart. You'll be reading charts in no time!

Be the Life of the Party
Just imagine how it will feel when you start to read your friends' charts. Everyone will want to have you interpret their chart for them. The interpretations of all the symbols and their combinations revealed here are concise and informative; all you have to do is look up the meanings once you've learned the symbols. When those horoscope books at the grocery store just aren't enough, this is your next step. You'll even learn one of the most complex aspects of astrology known as 'synthesis', putting it all together into a simple, clear reading.

Getting a Step Up
Perhaps you don't feel the need to read other peoples' charts. There's one person you must read for, however: yourself. Discover where your chart indicates you'll have challenges in life, so you can put extra energy into them and overcome them. Learn where you naturally excel, so you can know what directions are optimal for you in life. This is the greatest key to understanding who you are and why things happen the way they do in your life! Prepare to make your future better than ever. Learn what type of person will make an ideal love interest or spouse. See where money can flow into your life—and why it flows too easily away from you. Are you more of a traveler (in which case you may prefer to rent an apartment) or a person who prefers to make a nest (in which case you might want to buy a home)? You can find out and be happier and more content than ever.

Discover how easy it really is to read your birthchart. This book features many practical charts, diagrams, and tables to help make learning easy. Finally, you'll know what that chart really means! The mystery of horoscopes will be revealed at last. This is the ideal book for any beginner. In fact, this book and your birthchart may teach you more about yourself than a dozen self-help books. You owe it to yourself to get Astrology for Beginners.

Angels can change your life for the better; they create a positive energy in your life that brings happiness and contentment. But how do we access this wonderful ability of the angels? First, we must believe in them. If you believe in angels it makes it easier for them to work their magic in your life. But is not always easy to believe in... read this article
