For some 4 birthdays after taking up the study of astrology, at least one of my 7 siblings presented me with a second-hand hardback copy of of the Parker astrology book - and I have never been able to part with any of them, because of the quality of both the artwork and the general astrology guidance.

That's so cool that you had supportive siblings, Graham.

Got my copy of Parkers' in a small backroom of very old metaphysical shop. People would donate unwanted books. Profits helped the elderly store-owners.

*~
Year was 2009,
paid $15 Dollars for it.

The photography and graphics in this book are out-of-this-world gorgeous!

Enjoy your studies, AriesJason.
Keep us updated on your progress, if you want.


While reading Alan Oken's book, I too wanted to learn how to figure and draw these (without use of a computer to help).
I own the books I've suggested above. I came to a good "understanding" of the basics of 'How' it's done. {I was still a bit confused on how to work the math formulas (using hand calculator), but I'm good at using the tables.

In his book, Alan Oken had expressed that every astrology student should learn how it's done. It helps expand the understanding.

Today, we use computers that calculate and draw the charts FOR us.

Stay Blessed!

Question:
Since the spring Equinox is technically March 19th, wouldn't it be appropriate the now move the sign of Aries to that date?

Nope. 2020 was a "Leap Year". We added an extra day to the calendar this year. February 29.
