Fast Track Astrologer: The Book I Wish I Had When I Became an Astrologer is now available at amazon.com. Shortly it will be available in local bookstores, as a Kindle book and at Apple iTunes for the iPad.
Being an astrologer has been a personally rewarding career. My internal “batteries” get recharged when I help people explore their unique potential in practical ways. While astrology is a complex discipline that takes a long time to fully learn and appreciate, it is well worth the effort.
This book is for people at all levels in their knowledge of Western astrology who want to fast track their learning and use it like the professionals. It is relatively short and yet provides everything you need. I have no doubt that even professional astrologers will garner many insights from this book.
Step by step, we go through the myriad of components in astrology and learn to delineate birth charts. We will explore the birth chart as a person’s evolution in growth and maturity. Additionally, we will cover everything you need to know to forecast the upcoming year using transits, explore the implications of moving to new areas, and have introspective conversations with couples. We will even explore worldwide (Mundane) astrology and apply it to the interesting times we are in.
This book provides a much-needed investigation of the various House systems and their relationship to the three-dimensional cosmos. Included is the Krusinski House system, which astrologers are rapidly adopting because of its accuracy and geometric simplicity.
I believe this is one of those rare books that not only will accelerate your learning of astrology regardless of what level you are at, but also will serve as a useful reference for many years.
